Lauren London has had a tough few years while dealing with what none of us could ever imagine: the murder of her soulmate. The culture has thankfully rallied around her, and (hopefully) given her enough comfort to move forward, if there is a such thing. So much so, that sis has somehow picked herself up and gotten back to work, opposite of Michael B. Jordan in the upcoming film, Without Remorse.

The movie portrays London as Pam Madden Clark, the pregnant wife of Jordan's character, John Clark, who uncovers an international conspiracy while seeking justice for the murder of his wife. And what's wild is the actress actually revealed that she filmed the movie back in 2019, soon after the death of her Nip, which ultimately led to her taking a break from working to heal.

She tells ET:

"We shot it in 2019 I believe -- and forgive me, my memory doesn't serve me so well after grief and everything. Michael reached out to me as a friend and he was so unsure if I was even going to ever work again. And he was like, 'Look, I'm unsure if this is what you want to do, but I have to follow my intuition, I have to ask you if can you just read the script.'"

She then revealed that she was only in Berlin filming for 11 days because she had to go back to her kids. But the fact that she was even able to pull the strength to star in this role, is legendary within its own right. A high-profile death is never easy, and she is balancing it all.

Lauren goes on to say that she was initially hesitant to accept the role.

"There was a lot going on in my world and there were other priorities. I saw throughout the film she comes to him and... her love for him is still guiding him and I felt so connected to that just in my own personal experience that I felt like I could contribute here. Moving forward in my life, I kind of don't want to do anything that I can't really truthfully contribute and I felt like I could truthfully contribute to this project."

And being the warrior she is, contributing was an understatement.

"We can't stop, you know? We do have a purpose, all of us, and it's important for my sons to see me moving forward with grief, not just curling up in a ball, because I curled up in a ball for a long time. But especially for my eldest son because he's just a little more aware. But we will continue moving on as we had to, as he would want us to."

Forever sending love, hugs, and prayer to this queen.

Without Remorse will be available on Amazon Prime on April 30.

Simone Biles is a decorated U.S. gymnast who captured the hearts of many with her ambitious, yet graceful moves. However, over the past year, fans got to witness another side of Simone after the gymnast began expressing the issues she's faced regarding her mental health. The Olympic gold medalist shocked everyone when she pulled out of some of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic games, citing "twisties" as the reason. The twisties is a gymnastics term that is described as losing control of your body while spinning in the air.

The relationship we have and nurture with self lays the foundation for how we relate to and connect with others in our lives. Assessing the issues that discourage self-love from prospering are key in order to repair and reignite the freedom that comes when we finally believe the words "you are enough." I chatted with self-love advocate and lifestyle entrepreneur Shelah Marie – who you may remember from when her 2017 photo of doing yoga with boyfriend, rapper Ace Hood, went viral. Shelah's mission is to create a movement of total self-love and liberation for women of color through her platform Curvy, Curly, Conscious – a place where "self-help" meets "real talk" through virtual and offline events and retreats.

The first time I really learned about the five love languages was a year after a big heartbreak in my early twenties, and since then I've found myself exploring the love languages of each of my subsequent partners in an effort to be a better lover to them. At the click of a simple quiz, you'll know whether words of affirmation, acts of service, quality time, receiving gifts, or physical touch is the primary way you prefer to experience love.

Kissing is such a fascinating thing — to me. The reason why I say that is because, if the person you are exchanging a kiss with is someone who is good at it, it can be the sexiest, most special and most exhilarating thing ever. On the other hand, if they aren't so good — it's just gross. I don't know about y'all, but kissing is such a big deal in my world that I once broke up with someone, in part, because they totally sucked at doing it. It was like, no matter how hard I tried to explain to them what I needed in order to feel like we were in "kissing sync", they would continue to go off and do their own thing. All over my face (yuck).
