Style Reads: Steve Harvey & wife Marjorie Cover Essence

Alas, new faces on the cover of Essence magazine. Funnyman Steve Harvey and his wife Marjorie grace the cover of the December issue of Essence magazine. With the recent firing of most of Essence.com’s staff, readers are wondering what’s next for the magazine. Will we finally get some fresh content and articles on something other than money management and how to find/keep/lose a man? Will the so-called beauty editors who never seem to change their own appearances yet offer so much advice to readers every get new hairstyles?

Don’t be shocked by what I am saying. If you have read Essence for the past decade, you know they recycle more cover “models” than people on the green initiative. How many times will we see Mary J. Blige, Will and Jada, Queen Latifah, Beyonce, Monique, or Gabrielle Union on the cover? Let’s keep it real, a change is in order. The website is a start because it had more errors in a day than I’ve had on a writing assignment my whole life.

I have continued to support Essence because God forbid another black magazine go out of business. This is the only women’s magazine black women have to turn to so forgive me for growing tired of seeing the same old people and the same old content. How many more times can you tell us how to manage our finances?let’s come out of the dark ages Essence, and avoid going into 2010 with the same old same old. Maybe then you can see a profit and retain more subscribers. good luck.

At any rate, I breezed through the latest issue and found these gems:

-You’re All I Need to Get By
-The top 40 Reasons to Visit Louisiana
-Your Ultimate Holiday Survival Guide

Check out the new Essence.com and feel to give us some feedback on what you think.
