Like a true Beyoncé stan, when Renaissancedropped, I listened promptly at 12 a.m. with the rest of Twitter. The 16-track album was released just over a month after the debut of its only single “Break My Soul” and, based on my adoration for that song, I knew the album was one that I was guaranteed to dance to–even if alone in my living room.

The words “reality TV” used to make me cringe when they were used to describe the docuseries, Couples Therapy on Showtime, that my husband Dale and I took part in. I’m no reality television star.

I’ve always found it to be weird, but I find it even more noticeable since becoming pregnant with a baby boy, likely because people keep projecting that bullshit onto me. Sidenote: I truly believe being pregnant has a way of bringing attention to the weird shit that people say so that you know who you don’t want around your child (at any given stage) or who not to take parenting advice from.

Everyone has something to say about 25-year-old Lori Harvey these days, and I’m sure for many more days to come. Right now, the particular topic of conversation is her recent breakup with her boyfriend of over a year Michael B. Jordan. A source told PEOPLE exclusively that though the couple was no longer together, they both "still love each other." Of course, this news spread across the social media landscape like wildfire with many people feeling a way about how Lori moves in her romantic relationships.
