      Yeah sorry I could barely contain myself enough to think of sending him to you. I have also had the pleasure of meeting LL Cool J twice. I swear the next hunk I meet I will send him over.

      I know that Ronnie Devoe is a real estate agent in ATL just because my cousin told me and sent me his site once. I think they were supposed to be releasing another album this year or some songs. I heard that a few months back.

      YOU MET SEXY HUNK MORRIS CHESTNUT AND DIDN'T SEND HIM TO ME VIA EXPRESS MAIL? Now I am really upset. LOL

      I wish I could meet any one of the hunky gents you have on display here or on the hispanic men's list. I did get to meet some hunks not on your list as a teen- Kid and Play and the men of Bell, Biv, Devoe. They were hunks in their hayday. I wonder what happened to them over the years.

      Tootles!!!

      Nayberry - I had the honor of meeting Morris Chestnut up close and personal and I have to say that he is just as sexy in person as he is on screen!! Hot is an understatement. I have to agree I couldn't choose just one.

      AEvans - Thank you very much. Glad that you like!! lol

      Just give me Richard T. Jones on a platter labeled hot and sexy and I will be happy for the REST of my life. Even his voice makes me shiver. If he's unavailable, I'll take Terrance Howard, Micheal Jai White, Morris Chestnut, or The Rock. Hell, I'll take them all. This is a man buffet! Great job, and I love the men on the videos.

      I need a cold shower. It's getting hot in here.

      Tootles!!
