Stephen Twitch Boss Last Social Media Post


An unshakeable mood of somberness fills the air as news surfaces that vibrant and happy television personality Stephen “tWitch” Boss has committed suicide.

There’s Speculation on What Made Stephen Take His Life

Stephen seemed to have the most perfect life. A beautiful wife, lovely and healthy children and a successful career. People’s minds are boggled as to what would make the “Stomp the Yard: Homecoming” actor feel so “miserable to death”, literally. Especially when videos are going viral showing him smiling, dancing, and happy. Physical activity, especially dancing normally cheers a person up. So it must have been something detrimental tugging on his mental health. Not to mention he and his wife had just celebrated nine years of marriage three days prior.

Additionally, Stephen’s wife told police there were no signs of depression or suicidal thoughts whatsoever. However, the red flag that was unintentionally overlooked was that when he left home. he left his car keys.

He was mourned on social media Wednesday by many who shared videos of him dancing and their memories.

“A kind soul and a sweet person.. that is how I will remember Twitch… This was his 40th birthday party .. my heart goes out to his family especially Allison and their beautiful kids.. this is devastating… I love you brother and will miss you dearly,” daytime TV host and comedian Loni Love tweeted.

Born in Montgomery, Alabama, Boss earned his nickname as a child when he couldn’t sit still.

He graduated from Lee High School in Montgomery in 2000 and went on to study Dance Performance at Southern Union State Community College and Chapman University. He’s played in several movies to include but limited to “Hairspray”, “Blades of Glory” and the “Hip Hop Nutcracker.”

Stephen Boss Said He Was Grateful for Family 2 Weeks Before His Death

Just two weeks before taking his life he said he was “thankful for life.”

“Thankful for family. Thankful for health. Thankful for love. Thankful for life,” the former “Ellen DeGeneres Show” DJ captioned an Instagram photo on Nov. 24 while celebrating Thanksgiving with his family.


“Sending y’all so much love from our family to yours. ,” he added with the hashtags #bossfamily and #turkeyday.


Neiman Marcus 2nd Major Retailer to Seek Chapter 11


Neiman Marcus, the 113 year old chain best known for its high end merchandise has filed for bankruptcy on Thursday; making it the second major retailer to do so during the coronavirus pandemic. The Dallas based retailer has struggled to pay down $5 billion in debt; much of it from leveraged buyouts in 2005 and 2013. Moreover, the pandemic has forced the high end retailer to temporarily shut down all 43 of its stores and furlough the majority of its 14,000 workers.

“The writing has been on the wall for years: Neiman Marcus has an unsustainable amount of debt,” said Steve Dennis, a Dallas-based consultant and former Neiman Marcus executive. “The pandemic just accelerated the inevitable.”

Keep in mind; this news comes three days after mall-based apparel chain J. Crew filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. More than 263,000 stores across the country have temporarily closed in recent weeks, according to GlobalData Retail, and entire shopping malls now sit empty as social distancing keeps consumers at home. More bankruptcies are projected in the coming months, analysts and attorneys say, as retailers run out of ways to negotiate leases and other debts. “You’ve got a situation where companies that were already failing won’t be able to pay”, says bankruptcy attorney McKool Smith.

The company joins a long list of national retailers that have filed for bankruptcy in recent years. Similarly, the other retailers were purchased by private equity firs and hedge funds in the mid 2000’s when a booming economy and low interest rates made leveraged buyouts particularly attractive. The deals were financed using large swaths of debt; under the assumption that the good times would continue and companies would grow.

All New Staff

A year into the position; executive Geoffrey van Raemdonck hired a host of new executives. First he started with a chief for the company’s other money maker in New York; Bergdorf Goodman and Last Call outlets. Each of the hires; he said in a late November interview with The New York Times, has “a passion for transforming our business”.

He said, “They all believe that not only are we going to delight our customers by bringing them unique and curated experiences, but they really believe that we are travelling a new course for how the retail industry and department store are transforming themselves” Mr. van Raemdonck falsely projected.

It crashed and burned, unfortunately; and at the same time that other retail giants like Lord & Taylor and JC Penney are co-collapsing.

Mr. Raemdonck stated in a letter to customers, “This is simply a process that allows our company to alleviate debt; access additional capital to run the business during these challenging time; and emerge a stronger company with the ability to better serve you and continue our transformation over the long term”.

Neiman Marcus May Go Under New Mgmt.

There are talks that LVHM (Louis Vuitton Hennesy Moet) may be a possible of Bergdorf Goodman, ( a subsidiary Neiman Marcus) which a luxury department store Bergdorf Goodman is where you find your Gucci grip strap sandals for $295. Additionally, you’ll find your Balenciaga training sock sneakers; and those would run you about $350. Nonetheless, hopefully their merchandise will be on sale when and if they decide to open back up. Sending positive vibes their way. This coronavirus pandemic had been tough for some businesses around the globe.

John Singleton Dies at Age 51


Boyz n The Hood director John Singleton was taken off life support on Monday. His family made the difficult announcement earlier after inaccurate reports of his death had been surfacing.

“It is with heavy hears we announce that our beloved son, father and friend, John Daniel Singleton will be taken off life support today. This was an agonizing decision, one that our family made, over a number of days, with the careful counsel of John’s doctors,” began the statement released by John’s family.

Over the weekend, reports were surfacing that the 51-year old had dies following a stroke he suffered almost two weeks ago. However, Singleton’s publicist quickly shut down those rumors reporting that the producer was unfortunately still in a coma. However, on Monday, his death at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center was confirmed after the family pulled him off life support.

(Pictured above) When Boyz N the Hood was nominated for a best-director Academy Award, Singleton became the first African American nominee in that category, as well as the youngest. The movie sold more than $123 million in tickets.

See an excerpt from Boyz N the Hood below.

Singleton lost the 1992 Academy Award for best director to Jonathan Demme, who for “Silence of the Lambs”. No black film maker has won the Oscar for best director, but when Spike Lee won this year for best adapted screenplay for “BlacKkKlansman”, John Singleton was super excited. “My brother Spike Lee just won his first Oscar,” Singleton wrote on his Twitter, “I’m so happy!”

John Singleton was born on Jan 6, 1968, in the trenches of a violent Los Angeles neighborhood. His mom, Sheila Ward, was a pharmacutical sales executive, and his father, Danny Singleton, was a mortgage broker. He lived full time with his mother until he turned 11 and then moved in with his father, on whom he based the character of Tre’s fatheer (played by Laurence Fishburne) in ‘Boyz N The Hood‘. John was influenced by movies like Cooley High (1975), a comedy drama about high school friends living in a Chicago projects, directed by Michael Schultz and starring Glynn Turman and Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs.

Singleton Had a Love For Theater At A Young Age

Singleton was only 7 years old when he saw the film with his mother. He remembered that she cried when a character in the movie was killed.

“I looked at my mother and said, “Why are you crying?”, he said in a 2016 interview with Vanity Fair. “And she said, ‘Because it’s such a good movie.’ So I start thinking, when I get to make a movie; I got to make people cry. I got to make them feel something.”

And that he absolutely did, with Boyz n Hood, Highter Learning they made you feel the passion of the characters. The movies made you think deeper than the surface level.

Mr. Singleton had a big family and leaves behind his loving parents; his daughters Justice Singleton, Hadar Busia-Singleton, Cleopatra Singleton; Selenesol Singleton and Isis Singleton; and his sons Maasai and Seven. Thank you Mr. Singleton. You were truly great, an inspiration and a rising star.
