Nessa girl, it saddens me to have to even tell you the bullsh!t I’m about to tell you. After all the ranting and the raving, A Mother’s Love WILL NOT be coming to a city nearest you after all. Simply put, it appears that the promoter who the play was licensed to may have bitten off a little more than they could chew. Quiet as its kept, I knew something in the milk wasn’t clean when the check I was written for my first week’s salary bounced. Writing this post is a little weird for me, because I am so use to telling other people’s tea, and not my own. However, here we go…
For those of you wondering “how is it that the play stop moving due to lack of resources, and Kandi is rich”, here’s how. Kandi & Todd created and produced the original play. After the play’s initial run in Atlanta, Kandi & Todd were apprehensive about travelling the play around the US on their dime, because these were unchartered territories for them. One magical day, A promoter approached Kandi & Todd about wanting to invest in and promote the play on a 30 city tour. The reasonable assumption to any rational adult is that if someone approaches you about putting a 30 city tour together, that they have the resources and the skill set to do so. Well we all know what they say about assumptions…
Fast forwarding to casting. The cast was eventually given phone calls, a few cast changes were made, salaries were negotiated, and we were on our way to travelling across the US spreading the joys of A Mother’s Love. Mama I’m going to be a big star!! NOT! Here is where things get a little murky. A gamble was made by a promoter who used people’s lives as chips. Being given a contract that pretty much says you will be on the road from September – December and paid XYZ salary weekly was all the go ahead people needed to quit their day jobs, reject other offers, and basically rearrange their lives. Last night, when news broke that the tour was cancelled, there were many tears shed. People’s lives changed in a matter of seconds. Expecting to be paid this Monday, and in exchange being told that the tour is no more, coupled with the fact that you quit your job (your only source of income), emotions were running high. There were some people in the room who honestly had no other money than what was in their pocket, and was really depending on this Monday payout. Continue reading
Now chile, after Kandi done wore pigeon feathers down the aisle, she’s got the nerve to be acting all grand. I know I probably shouldn’t be running my mouth too much because I am a part of the production, but I have got to take a small moment to poke fun at this foolishness. In the words of Nene Leakes “everybody knows Kandi loves to eat.” What they might not of known is that mama doesn’t want mutant chicken from churches or no soggy chicken from KFC. Kandi is specifically requesting Popeyes chicken.
According to her rider:
“Please do not substitute for KFC or Churches, we know the difference.”
With all that wagon she is draggin’, Kandi insists that she only sit on a new toilet seat and wipe her funk box with Cottonelle toilet paper. The real gag is, Kandi is trying to pull it. I done been round ha house, and in that guest bathroom, Mama had that blue 1-ply tissue that your country grandma gets from Family Dollar. Hoes kill me. You don’t wipe your ass with Cottonelle on your own dime, but you want somebody else to finance your boongee’s romance with Cottonelle. Girl Bye!
Kandi’s rider stipulates that a brand new toilet seat must be installed under the supervision of her road manager or assistant, and the bathroom must be fully stocked with Cottonelle and Dove soap. Mind you the rest of us on the tour are probably going to have to wipe our ass with those elementary school paper towels and wash our hands with liquid soap that comes in a gallon container. Jesus hurry up and get me off the F-List. My coochie is just as precious as Kandi’s. At least my neighbor’s husband thinks so.
Oh well, I can tell y’all THIS. My ass will not be eating granola bars and and chips from craft services. Nope! My ass is gone be down to Kandi dressing room stealing chicken wangs. Tryna do me! I don’t think so!!
Mama Joyce wanted Todd’s a** to go get a job, and he did. Now its time for us to see if it amounts to anything. I told y’all way back when that Todd was working on the actors version of R&B Divas (Todd Got A Job! Mama Joyce Should Be Proud! New Show ‘Hollywood Divas’ On TvOne). Well they’ve finished filming the show and now it should just be a matter of months before we see the fruits of Todd & Carlos’s labor. The show features Elise Neal (The Hughleys), Golden Brooks (Girlfriends), Paula Jai Parker (Hustle and Flow), Countess Vaughn (The Parkers) and Lisa Wu (Real Housewives of Atlanta). All tea all shade, I really am not checking for Golden Brooks or her new face.
Anyway… Congrats To Todd & Carlos.
Listen, this picture just SCREAMS messy. It very well could be that all three ladies just so happened to be at the same place at the same time, and decided to take a picture, but i don’t know Nessa Girl. All three ladies were attended the The Think Like A Man Too movie premiere in New York. I do know Cynthia & Marlo personally. I’m going to go out on a limb and say they all just happened to be there. I seriously don’t think that all three of them rode there together perse’. However, this picture does look a lil suspect. I’m pretty sure in coming moments we can expect Nene Leakes to post some sort of subliminal Tweet.
I’ll say this, Marlo Hampton knew exactly what she was doing when she posted this picture. I’ll leave it at at that.
What do y’all think?
UNLIKE, Latavia Roberson, Meelah Williams is singing her behind off. Yes Gawd second chance fish. You better do it! For those of y’all that don’t know, in the spring and summer months here in Atlanta, every second tuesay Shanti Das and Marlon Nichols through an event called “ATL Live On The Park.” The event is typically jammed packed with the Who’s Who of Atlanta and features the talent of R&B artist around the nation. I had just back in town from my 3 week rich white woman excursion in Mississippi, so I didn’t attend this last one, but “The People” say Meelah Williams slayed her set. Joseline Hernandez take note!
Musiq Soul Child was in attendance and hit the stage with Meeleh as well. Oh Marlo Hampton was there with a leapord top on and a python skirt. I guess her booster couldn’t steal the complete outfit for either print, so Miss Thang had to mix and match. Catch these T’s Continue reading
Mama Joyce might be happy that Todd’s got a new gig, but the producers of R&B Divas sure aren’t. Plainly put, the folks over at R&B Divas feel some kind of way about Todd Tucker & Carlos King essentially taking the R&B Divas concept, dropping the word “R&B”, and replacing it with “Hollywood”. I mean, no tea no shade, anyone with a half a contact can see that the ideas are very similar in nature. To add insult to injury, the producers of R&B Divas pitched the same concept to TvOne before they sold R&B Divas to them a source tells me.
Y’all don’t let Mama Joyce know that Todd is copying off peoples homework in class. We’d hate for her to have one more thing to gripe about.
