Back in October, I posted a picture of a father laying on his stomach, surrounded by his wife and six newborn babies, yes, sextuplets! The mother and father, Rozonno and Mia McGhee, welcomed their two girls and four boys; Madison, Olivia, Rozonno, Jr., Elijah, Isaac and Josiah into the world on June 9, 2010.
With their eight-month old babies in tow, the mother and father appeared on Oprah today to receive a huge blessing. Not only did Oprah tell every family in Columbus, Ohio, to call the father’s carpet cleaning business, Wal-Mart also gave the McGhee family a host of baby items and $250,000 of in-store credit to help make raising their family easier.
Since they’ve never had an official honeymoon, the couple also received a trip to Las Vegas’ Caesar Palace where they’ll see Celine Dion’s show! They definitely deserve it!
Want to see a day in the life of the McGhee’s as they raise six babies, go here.

@IAmDiddy Donates $100K to Fund Young Entrepreneurs
Sean “Diddy” Combs was recently honored by producer/songwriter Michael Cox at a private gala jointly hosted by SESAC and 100 Urban Entrepreneurs. Held at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills, the pre-Grammy brunch was attended by hundreds of musicians, entrepreneurs and industry executives.
Annually Cox “recognizes a leading business executive’s commitment to music, business and service. He told attendees, “When you’re around Puff, you just want to be better.” Together, the two have worked on music for Mary J. Blige, Cassie, Day 26 and even Diddy, himself.
In a special presentation honoring Combs, Damone Franklin and Charlie Fyffe owners of Charlies Brownies, a 100 Urban Entrepreneur funded business, announced the establishment of the “Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs” Entrepreneurial Fund. Moved by the founders’ commitment to urban entrepreneurship and the stories of those currently served by the foundation, Sean “Diddy” Combs personally committed $100,000.00 to The 100 Urban Entrepreneurs Foundation. The donation will be used to fund 10 startup businesses and provide entry into the 100 Urban Entrepreneur Mentor Program.
Think ahead and give back, Diddy’s doing both; in addition to the honor from 100 Urban Entrepreneur, Diddy’s company, Bad Boy, was recently ranked as the third largest minority owned business in New York City. Source

Tyra Banks is known for her beauty, but her business sense and media conglomerate proves she has the brains to back it all. She recently enrolled in the Business School’s Executive Education Owner/President Management Program (OPM) at Harvard University.
Bank’s reportedly earns $20 million annually, tuition costs probably won’t be an issue. OPM is unlike a traditional MBA program because students are given a large amount of leeway in completing the requirements for the program. Tyra will learn entrepreneurial skills and techniques for managing her company’s growth.
The OPM program, which usually draws in about 200 students, requires participants to attend one three-week session of lectures at the Business School each year for three years. Tuition for the first of the sessions comes to $31,000. Source
