Laz Alonso's Top 10 Great Girlfriend Traits; Photoshoot.

Posted by SouthernGurl

Laz Alonso. Many of you may remember him from his roles in movies like G, Stomp the Yard, This Christmas (I hated him in that movie! But that's a good thing though!) or Miracle at St. Anna. I remember him from my days as a morning news producer here in Tallahassee and in Jacksonville. When my co-workers has the televisions on their desks tuned in to CNN or MSNBC, mine would be tuned in to B.E.T.'s morning show A.M. @ B.E.T. I needed my early morning eye candy and he fit the bill and then some. At the time, I had no idea he was a Howard graduate and held a lucrative position as an investment banker at Merill Lynch on Wall Street; and I definitely didn't think I'd ever see him years later in hit movies.

Since this is BlackCelebrityMen.blogspot.com and since Laz is without a doubt a BlackCelebrityMan, I had to look out for my readers and get the goods on his personal life and what he looks in a potential wifey, right? Well, ladies, although he isn't married, he is in a relationship right now according to his updated Myspace page. Last fall in his Jewel magazine interview he spoke about marriage and said, 'I'm definitely looking to be married. I don't really have a time frame, but I'd like to do it fairly soon so I'm not that old dude who always gets complimented on his grandson.' Bless his heart. He's also an only child who 'grew up surrounded by strong women' including his mother, grandmother and aunts, he says. 'So that's the type I'm usually attracted to. She has to be self-confident and hold her head high. You feel her energy when she walks in the room, and when she opens her mouth, she's got something to say.' Now, as I perused his Myspace page, I came across a blog entry of his where he lists his personal Top 10 Traits of a Great Girlfriend which I found to be a very entertaining read.

Below are scans from a photo shoot the actor posed for in Jewel magazine. I had to dig waaaaaaaaaaay deep in my old magazine collection for these. Click on each picture to see its full image. Hope you Laz fans enjoy them.


Top 10: Traits Of A Great Girlfriend: I must admit that playing the field is a whole lot of fun, but so is being in a serious relationship -- provided that it's with the right woman. But how do you know if she really is the right woman for you? If she possesses the following 10 traits, you better hold on to her for dear life or, before you know it, a guy who already knows where it's at will get his hands on your "goods."


No one wants a girlfriend they have to baby-sit. Once in a while, like if she's had a rough day at work, it's great to be her shoulder to cry on, but if she can't seem to function without you and is constantly after you, she will eventually make you feel like you're suffocating, which is a surefire way to get you running out the nearest exit. On the other hand, if she has her very own personality and opinions, can stand on her own two feet, both financially and emotionally, and is able to enjoy time away from you -- while still missing you, of course -- then she must be a great girlfriend.


I hate to be the one to tell you this, but the bimbo routine gets real old, real fast. A woman who can meet you at an intellectual level is a total turn-on. Instead of being the one in total control, you'll find yourself trying to figure out what she's really thinking behind those glazed eyes of hers -- or if she's actually thinking at all. An intelligent woman will constantly surprise you and keep you on your toes. She won't let you get bored of her. Besides, it's nice to have something to talk about between all that chandelier-hanging sex.


While we're on the topic, a great girlfriend has to be sexually compatible with you. For instance, if you're into S&M and she's more the "fluffy lingerie" type, that's a problem. The two of you have to be on the same page -- or, at least, she has to be willing to wear leather and use a whip from time to time. Of course, this doesn't imply that she has to know all the right moves straight away; it simply means that you and she have an undeniable attraction towards each other, and are able to communicate your desires verbally (or with physical cues). It is important that you please each other
in the bedroom, or on top of the dryer -- whatever the case may be.


I know, this one is kind of obvious, but important nonetheless. A great girlfriend will not only want to look good for you, but also for herself. She should always look her best and be well put together -- matching lingerie is a definite plus. You have to be proud to have her on your arm and enjoy the sight of her in any light. And this doesn't mean that she has to be a Heidi Klum clone. Remember that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so if you think her full bottom or uncontrollable curls are beautiful, you're allowed.


This is a biggie. Your woman must respect you. This means that she listens to you, even if she doesn't necessarily agree with what you're saying. And, of course, she never tries to demean or belittle you in any way, shape, or form. A great girlfriend won't ever cause scenes in public or in front of your friends and family, and will always wait to discuss matters with you in private. If she respects you, chances are that she will behave in a tactful and diplomatic manner in most situations, which is definitely a good thing. Does your woman bring you and the guys beer on poker night?


Do not -- I repeat -- do not get involved with a woman who tries to get you to eat cottage cheese and fruit for breakfast and insists that you give up poker night with the guys. You will end up resenting her more than you can imagine. A good girlfriend lets you be a guy in all your glory, poker night and all. If she's a great girlfriend, she'll even bring you and your buddies a couple of beers and make you some of her famous sandwiches. She has to understand that men and women are different and should allow you to be yourself. Just like you wouldn't deprive her of going shopping with
her best girlfriend, she shouldn't expect you to give up the guys for her.


There is nothing worse than a nag! A great girlfriend knows this and chooses her battles wisely. She knows when to speak-up and when to let it slide. You don't want a girlfriend who will give you the heights of hell for leaving a couple of dishes in the sink occasionally. However, if you live together and you stay out all night without calling her, and she lets you have it, then you're setting yourself up for disaster. This is a situation that nobody would let slide -- not even a great girlfriend.


A great girlfriend will not only help your mom in the kitchen, listen to your dad's stories, and hang out with your friends, she will enjoy it. She'll make a real effort to get to know and love the most important people in your life. And she won't try to get you to ditch your best buds. She'll actually empathize with your brother's getting dumped and suggest that you guys take him out to cheer him up. Not only that, but your friends won't roll their eyes and moan when you mention that she'll be joining you
guys when she gets off work (yes, women like this do exist).


If you have found a woman who loves you for who you really are and not who you pretend or try to be sometimes, you should definitely hang on to her. A woman who doesn't try to change you is hard to find. Of course, everyone has their slightly annoying habits that their mate has to contend with, but if she really loves you, she will be able to cope with these. Another way to know if she really loves you is by observing the way she looks at you and treats you on an everyday basis. If the sight of you doesn't seem to faze her either way, and she doesn't really seem to care about what you have to say, she's either playing very hard to get, or sees you as just some guy. But if a surprise visit or phone call from you makes her light up, there's no denying that she loves you.


Stop making that face... Any man who has a great girlfriend or wife will tell you that she makes him want to be a better man. She doesn't have to say or do anything; it just is that way. If you suddenly feel bad about how you treated your sister or find yourself trying to get your finances in order, you might want to think about your motivation for doing so. It could be love.

Just looking at Laz makes my panties wet and sticky. I need him in my life--and my BED--right now! LOL! Dreaming of him is good, but I'm sure there ain't nothing like having the real thang!!!!

SG I love this blog because it's all about black men but I'mma need you to post more pics of Laz. While you're at it some photos of Christian Keys, Lance Gross, Reggie Bush and Pooch Hall would be a good look too. Just some suggestions! *smile* *wink*

SG I got dis from a messageboard that I don't want to name. It's a DR a.k.a. 'Dick Report' on Laz. Don't know how true it is but i thought it was a juicy read!

i have some tea on him...

DR report..i was sleeping with him of and on for awhile. he's aight, nothing to have multiple orgasams about. ok size, like the other girl said, he does cum fast. his head game is better then the sex tho. he loves it from the back but he cums even faster that way. he loves big titties and models. i met him on a social networking site too (probably the same one as the other girl) and if you look around he has every damn video and urban model on his friendslist. he does have an off and on again gf with the initals A.S. she just signed with a record label and is in a girl group. she's filipino and white. cute girl. just blind to the fact that he cheats on her,. shes on all of his friendslists on all of the networking sites that he's on. he definetely isnt ready to settle down anytime soon. and is VERY cocky. he will kick your ass out if you allow him too when he's done. but for bitches like me that don't play that shit, i didn't allow it. what else?

I can not believe I am reading this about Laz. I love him, he is so damn sexy. I wish I could meet him because I would make his ass think twice about cheating on me. Yes I am fine but that is not all, I think I have what it take to get any man I want. However he does sound like an arrogant piece of shit based on his top ten alone. Anyway, I still love him !

Whoever left the comment on the sexual experience with Laz is an idiot! You sound very bitter! Did he dump you or something? Laz is a very nice and intelligent man. I know people in his circle, though I never met him yet. People need to stop kissing and telling when shit don't go right in the relationship!!!!

Kera Kisses said...

I dig his top ten. Some of the are things that I would put in my top ten for guys as well...... and I'm smdh at that so-called "dick report". That was ignorant and immature to even post that. We don't know the man personally so who knows if it's true or not, and if it is, why kiss and tell? So you got fucked..... You want a cookie? I don't get why people do this to celebrities as if they're not real ppl. Would you want someone posting true OR false information about your sex life on the internet. Chill out wit that garbage........ and for the girl who said he sounds like and arrogan piece of shit based on his top ten..... Really? Grow up.

To Miss Kiss and Tell! Have you heard the phrase Why buy the cow if you can get the milk for free. Well there you have it! Looks like you played yourself____By the way about his list! If you had some standards you wouldn't look like a_____I'm so sick of you all out there who give it up so freely then think you can seriously have a man that has his standards whatever they may be at least he knows what he wants. To all the women out there stop selling yourself short. You don't have to sleep with a man to get him because if it's just about sex it won't last anyway.

Brown Honey Girl said...

If you pay close attention to some of his interviews, he makes it very obvious as to what he is looking for in a woman. I mean check out his twitter page. He's not ready to settle down, but I hope that when he does it's with the right person.

Anonymous said...

Why should he settle down? He's young, sucessful, financially solvet and sexy as hell. He may find his right woman or some ambitious chick will turn herself into his top ten. He's got the right 2 have expectations but imo its its far reaching so I hope he's braced 4 disappointment. No one is everything to any one person. he's happy trolling for miss right now. He may let miss right pass him by with his mental top ten list but that's his loss

I mean I love laz, he's cute and everything but there's no way dat he's gonna find a woman to match his top ten dat easy.... No wonder he haven't setlle down yet cuz ain't no woman in their right mind is gonna eccept dis crap (top ten).... I already feel from his top ten dat his very cocky and arrogant he seems.like da type of guy who thinks dat he's too good for any woman and dat no woman his good enough for him dats a turn off right there mr: laz alonso.... It's gonna be very hard for him to find a woman like dat to submet and accept his top ten.... Anyway I wish him good luck and I still love u madly... U should marry me I would've fixed ur behind real good... I can see dat he's da type dat who thinks his all dat... Dats crazy well wit dat type of atittude u sure ain't gonna find a good woman cuz it won't work baby....but I still love u though... And u are a very good actor... So keep up da good work baby..... But u need help u need dum serious help wit ur top ten for sure.... Well good luck....
