Back in August, I told y’all that Deborah Joy Winans was pregnant, but since then, I hadn’t come across any updates…and so I wondered if something had gone wrong…But praise be to God, Deborah Joy Winans and her husband Terrence William did become parents to Terrence David Williams back in October although she only officially announced it via People magazine this month (a wonderful time for a birth announcement no less)! As she told ESSENCE back in August, it was difficult pregnancy due to fibroids unfortunately. Please read an excerpt of the People magazine article by Georgia Slater below…
Deborah Joy Winans is feeling grateful for her baby boy after a difficult pregnancy journey. The Greenleaf actress, 38, welcomed her first child, son Terrence David Williams, with husband Terrence Williams in October, and tells PEOPLE that she’s “on the mend” following a painful pregnancy involving fibroids, noncancerous tumors that grow in the uterus. Winans, who stars in OWN’s new holiday film A Sisterly Christmas, gave birth to her son via an emergency cesarean section three weeks before her due date. Baby Terrence weighed 8 lbs, 2 oz. at birth.

God bless this couple on their new journey as parents!!!
Sometimes, in spite of our best intentions, life happens and the plans we made don’t happen…And that is what happened to actress and comedienne Sherri Shepherd over the weekend! Sherri had an emergency appendectomy and had to miss hosting The Wendy William Show on behalf of Wendy, who has been a no-show herself since the 13th season of the show started back in September!
Below is a video of Sherri sharing about her emergency surgery and as usual, she found a way to make to make her mishaps funny!
But don’t you know that Sherri was back to the Wendy set on Tuesday?! I hope she has given herself adequate time to heal…
Below is her Facebook post from Tuesday!
Sherri, you are better than me. I would still be in my sick bed…May God continue to heal her AND Wendy Williams as I truly do miss her personality as well (although she definitely needs to take her time to be healed from all that is ailing her…)
Earlier this year, I interviewed author Tiffany L. Warren, about her how her faith-based novel ‘The Favorite Son” was made into a BET+ movie that premiered in May of this year!
Read that informative interview HERE!
And below is the synopsis of the original novel….
Do family, faith–and fame–go together?
They’re handsome, smart, and musically gifted. Brothers Camden and Blaine Wilson have put their talents together and founded a gospel group. The quieter one, Camden is the songwriter, while charismatic Blaine is the performer. At first, their Reverend father is against the idea–until Blaine, his favorite, wows the congregation at a church revival. Sure enough, once the reverend witnesses their effect on the crowd he wants them there every Sunday. But he may have set the stage for trouble. . .
As the group’s popularity grows, so do the groupies–and promiscuous Blaine is more than happy to share his love. Gigs across the country, meetings with music execs, a chance to sign with a major label, and a sexy new band member bring new connections–and dangerous new temptations. Soon, a slew of rumors and a shocking betrayal threaten to destroy the group–and the brothers’ relationship. But one event is going to rock their world forever. Do they have enough faith, forgiveness, and brotherly love left to find harmony once more?…
Well, now she is set to release a sequel, a novel entitled “A Favorite Son Christmas” any day now. That’s all I know as of today so be on the lookout on your favorite online book retailers for the release!
