Last week I was going through my
boyfriend's phone and saw a message
from some lady talking about him
buying stuff for a child. I got really
vex right away and confronted him
about his cheating ways. You know
this man look at a big woman like
me and tell me that the person was
playing an all fool's joke on him and
that the child has nothing to do with
I do not believe him and I want
answers right now. He has shut down
and seems more vex than me talking
about why I went through his phone.
As far as I am concerned that is not
the real issue here. He never cheated
prepared to go through no nonsense
like some of these girls out here. What
all fool's joke he talking about? Do I
look like a fool? I need to get to the
bottom of this story right now! Please
tell me how to investigate this thing.
I love him and I want to spend the
rest of my life with him but I ent
able. Please help me.Nobody's Fool
DEAR NOBODY'S FOOL,
The foundation of any lasting rela-
tionship is trust. Although you might
think that the message that you read
takes precedence the question that
you should really be asking yourself
is why you saw the need to invade
your boyfriend's privacy. It would be
a good idea to do some introspection
in this regard.
Going through someone's phone is
never a good idea since it is really
easy to misread a situation as well
as the fact that it makes the person
doing the snooping appear extreme-
ly insecure. There is also the tenden-
cy to become paranoid and as such
the snooping would spread to other
devices. One should also remember
the golden rule and think about the
situation being reversed. If your boy-
friend said that the message was
simply a joke then you should believe
him especially since you expressed
that he has never cheated in the past
as well as the fact that last week was
April's Fool day.
Apologise to your boyfriend for
going through his phone as well as
for the way you acted subsequently.
In spite of how you feel trying to
have a conversation while angry is
never a good idea since things that
are said in anger are often regretted
after. In the future ask rather than
accuse and be open to dialogue.
Having said all this it is still equal-
ly important to trust your instincts
and go with your gut but be careful
not to open a Pandora's box. If you
choose to snoop then be prepared to
act on what you find. Janelle.

'Boss Baby' dethrones 'Beauty And
The Beast' with $49M debut
NEW YORK (AP) -- The taskmaster tod-
dler of "The Boss Baby" dethroned Disney's
"Beauty and the Beast" at the box office
with a $49 million debut, handing its star
Alec Baldwin what President Donald Trump
might call a "huge" no. 1 opening.
Paramount Pictures suffered another flop
with its controversy-plagued "Ghost in the
The DreamWorks Animation release from
20th Century Fox, starring Baldwin as a
suit-clad baby, narrowly edged out the pre-
vious two-week leader, according to studio
estimates Sunday. The live-action "Beauty
and the Beast" took in $48 million in its
third weekend. Final North American ticket
sales will be released Monday.
"We expected a decent opening. We didn't
expect to be number one," said Chris Aron-
son, Fox distribution chief.
Despite the popularity of "Beauty and the
Beast" (nearly $400 million domestically in
17 days, and $876.3 million globally), "Boss
Baby" was able to attract its own family
Aronson credited that partly to the appeal
of Baldwin, whose impression of Donald
Trump on "Saturday Night Live" has lately
been ubiquitous. "Boss Baby" also evokes
Baldwin's old "Glengarry Glen Ross" char-
acter with quips like "Cookies are for clos-
"Alec Baldwin's voice is recognizable, in
general. But he's so topical now because of
some of the other things he's doing right
now," Aronson said. "It's a very distinctive
voice, and if you put it on a baby, it's funny."
"Ghost in the Shell," a remake of a classic
1995 Japanese anime film, couldn't compete
with either family-friendly release. The dys-
topian science-fiction thriller, starring Scar-
lett Johansson, opened with just $19 million,
a poor showing for a film that cost about
$110 million to make.
Many took issue with the casting of Johans-
son as the cyborg protagonist who was Jap-
anese in the original, calling it another exam-
ple of Hollywood "whitewashing."
"We had hopes for better results domes-
tically. I think the conversation regarding
casting impacted the reviews," said Kyle
Davies, domestic distribution chief for Par-
amount. "You've got a movie that is very
important to the fanboys since it's based on
a Japanese anime movie. So you're always
trying to thread that needle between hon-
oring the source material and make a movie
for a mass audience. That's challenging, but
clearly the reviews didn't help."
Audiences appeared to agree with critics,
giving the film a mediocre B CinemaScore.
"Ghost in the Shell" will instead hope to
find more eager moviegoers in Japan (where
the casting controversy has not resonated)
and China next weekend. Opening in most
other countries this weekend, "Ghosts in the
Shell" took in a modest $40.1 million.
Paramount has recently suffered a string
of box-office disappointments. Last week,
Viacom Inc. hired former Fox film head Jim
Gianopulos to turn around its film division.
In limited release, Focus Features' "The
Zookeeper's Wife," starring Jessica Chastain,
opened well with $3.3 million at 541 locations.
Based on Diane Ackerman's non-fiction book,
the film is about a woman's efforts to save
Jews during the Holocaust. It will expand
