JILL SCOTT ON FALLING IN LOVE AGAIN, POSING NUDE, HER FAILED MARRIAGE & WHY SHE'S HAPPY IN HER SKIN.

I know the Internet has been buzzing all day with folks wondering if Jill Scott is dating her Why Did I Get Married? love-interest, actor Lamman Rucker. I know this for a fact because I have never seen my email's inbox stuffed with so many inquiries from people wanting to know if it's true or not. I will say this though: Jill and Lamman--or as I like to call them, Jilly from Philly and Lamman from P-Burg, P.A.--are two very private people. Therefore and thus and such, when Jill and Lamman want you to know if they indeed have a real thing going on, they'll tell you. Until then, just enjoy speculating and remember, you can't believe everything you read...or can you? According to Page Six, the singer turned actress was also recently seen at Nobu restaurant wining and dining the Hispanic male model she posed with during her Allure magazine photoshoot. Anywhoo, Scott recently did an interview with the Jamaican Observer and dished details on several issues going on in her life right now including her failed marriage, why she's happy and content with her size, posing nude for Allure magazine (March '08), finding love, her new music and acting projects, embarking on a new tour and launching her own bra line, The Butterfly Collection by Jill Scott in a joint venture with plus-size apparel retailer, Ashley Stewart Stores.

JILL ON DIVORCING HER COMPANION OF 13 YEARS AND HUSBAND OF FIVE, LYZEL WILLIAMS: “I think it had a lot to do with us not being meant to work together, it was a poor choice. The line between our relationship and work got blurred, so we had very little personal time and were too concerned with business. And somehow my husband stopped being my husband.” On coping with the issue: "I go through everything that everybody else does, I get angry, upset, tired and annoyed but I try my best to remain positive at all times, because there is so much to be positive about. Some days are good; some days are not. It is a different brand of lonely that I am learning to deal with, but overall, I am happier than I have ever been, and that makes all the difference in the world. I have too much to offer as a person to live my life alone and not to be in love again.”



JILL ON WHY SHE'S HAPPY IN HER SKIN & WHY SHE LOVED POSING NUDE FOR ALLURE MAGAZINE: "I don’t think that I am a particularly big girl, clearly I am not a small girl, but I think I am an average-sized American woman. I have been blessed with family and friends who appreciate all sides of me. I did a nude photo shoot two days ago for Allure, which I loved. It was so empowering and after it was all done, I was congratulated by staff members of Allure for breaking the mold.”

JILL ON HER PLANS FOR 2008 WHICH INCLUDES THE LAUNCH OF A NEW BRA LINE, THE BUTTERFLY COLLECTION BY JILL SCOTT: “I got big boobs and I need to be fly, I got tired of my shoulders hurting and marks being left in my skin from bras that weren’t designed for all of this, so I created my own.” The entire clothing line will be personally inspired and designed by Jill Scott, in conjunction with Ashley Stewart whose name and image will be utilized in all marketing and merchandising concepts.

Scott, who has been nominated for 3 Grammys (Best R&B album, Best Female R&B Vocal Performance for Hate On Me and Best Urban/Alternative Performance for Daydreamin' feat. Lupe Fiasco) for her newest album, The Real Thing: Words and Sounds, Volume 3, has also announced the itinerary for her Real Thing tour, which kicks off Feb. 5 in Seattle and rolls through 23 cities before wrapping March 30 in Birmingham. Multiple stands are scheduled in Oakland (Feb. 7-8); Atlanta (Feb. 22-23) and Baltimore (Feb. 26-27). She'll perform for four consecutive nights at Washington D.C.'s Constitution Hall beginning March 11. See the entire schedule HERE.

She will continue to be the face of plus size clothing store Ashley Stewart until next year and has wrapped another movie called Number One Ladies Detective Agency.

I told you that girl is crazy! LOL! So Jill's opted to come out with a bra line instead of a clothing line like so many other celebrities? That's different. It might work. Good for her.

Jill is absolutely beautiful. Inside and out. I wish her the best. Lamman ain't too shabby looking either. ;)

I always like smaller framed (jada) type women, then out of nowhere i started to appreciate the bigger women. Don't get me wrong, little women were my favorite but i liked all women. There was not a woman on earth i could not find a thing to truthfully tell her was sexy.

Great website.
