Men Cry in the Dark

Серия: "-"

Derrick has a thriving business, good looks, and charisma to spare, but his success seems empty without a special lady to share it with. Tony was an unredeemable ladies'man until Tracie caught his heart. But will his conniving ex, Valarie, let them live happily ever after? Any woman would be lucky to have Benjamin. But his weakness for young women has only made him a target for gold diggers in search of a sugar daddy. Will he ever find true love? And, finally, there's Mark. Still bitter from being rejected by black women when he was young, he seeks acceptance in the arms of a white lover. But will his friends and family accept her?

Michael Baisden (born June 26, 1963) is an American author, motivational speaker, host of the TV One talk show Baisden After Dark, and host of his own nationally-syndicated radio show.[1]



Baisden's first book, Never Satisfied: How and Why Men Cheat, was released by Legacy Publishing. Michael Baisden's other books The Maintenance Man and Men Cry in the Dark were adapted into stage plays that toured the country in 2001 and 2002.

In 2001, he made a series of promotional appearances on daytime talk shows. He was also host of his own syndicated talk show, Talk or Walk in 2001.[2] Baisden is host of the nationally-syndicated radio program The Michael Baisden Show which airs weekdays from 3-7 p.m. ET

His radio career began in 2003 when 98.7 KISS FM in New York City offered him a position as the afternoon drive-time host. Because of budget constraints the station was unable to offer him a salary. Michael's response was, "Just give me the damned mic!" And sure enough, within six months, their afternoon drive ratings went from number 9 to number 1.

In 2006 he was the host of a late night TV show show which aired on TV One titled, [3]Baisden After Dark, late Saturday nights. The show currently airs weekdays on TV One.

Baisden says his proudest moment came on September 20, 2007, when he passionately and skillfully spearheaded the famous Jena 6 March[4][5] in Jena, Louisiana. This historic and momentous occasion garnered tens of thousands of citizens of all races to peacefully march in support of six young men who have been unfairly treated by the justice system. He urged millions of listeners to wear black on September 20th of that year in protest of unequal justice. The news traveled throughout the country, supporters ranging from college students to corporate executives wore black in support of Jena 6.

2008 was another historic year. In late January Baisden endorsed Sen. Barack Obama in the Democratic primary. He celebrated President Obama’s victory with over 4,000 fans at a watch party in Miami on election night[6]. The Obama camp along with millions of listeners credited Michael with being one of the major forces behind this historic victory to elect the first African American to the Presidency of the United States.

Michael Baisden One Million Mentors Campaign.

In December 2009 Baisden called for a National Mentor Training Day and announced his plans for a 2010 nationwide campaign. He pledged up to $350,000 of his own money to be donated in over 72 radio markets he would visit on a bus tour. The outreach was named “One Million Mentors National Campaign To Save Our Kids.”[7] Baisden challenged his listeners to match or beat his donations and get involved. In October 2010 President Barack Obama publicly congratulated Michael on his efforts. He then founded the Michael Baisden Foundation focusing on education, literacy and technology.

Baisden is currently touring his radio Markets with his Do Something Now! campagin. The tour encourages listeners to register to vote, promote their businesses and get involved in their communities.

Love, Lust & Lies

Baisden is also often associated with his topic of “Love, Lust & Lies”, and has recently turned this popular and familiar topic into a film: Michael Baisden Presents: a Love, Lust & Lies: The Documentary. This film can be compared to documentaries such as “Real Sex” on HBO, which deals with relationships and sexuality but from the African American perspective. The film is rated for Mature Audiences Only. "It's amazing to me how many people are afraid to be open about what they want inside and outside the bedroom." Michael says. "Hopefully, after watching these interviews they'll be more willing to explore their sexuality and to discuss issues such as infidelity, adult toys, and the Swinging lifestyle.[8]

Baisden After Dark

Baisden After Dark, is the late-night TV Talk Show series starring the Nationally Syndicated Radio Personality, Michael Baisden, also known as the Bad Boy of Late Night TV, The show airs on TV One, and is now in its second season. Once again Baisden is exploring provocative and off-the-chain topics that most people have only thought about but never discussed. His partners include: Comedian George Willborn aka the Stress Reliever of Comedy and musician, Morris Day, who conducts the house band.

The After Dark party is the place to be as the bad boys discuss topics such as: “After the Affair: Do you forgive and forget or do you remember…..and remember?”, “Obesity in America,” and “Sex 101,” just to name a few.[9]

Do Women Know What They Want?

Baisden continues to expand his media reach when he produced, wrote, and directed a ground breaking documentary film titled, “Do Women Know What They Want?” The film takes the engaging and energetic host to the streets of Atlanta, Dallas, Ft. Lauderdale, Miami, New York and Washington, D.C. to talk directly with women about what they want in relationships. The upbeat, funny, thought-provoking, and very candid documentary film invites conversations with women and men to discuss their views on relationships.
