Hey, Funky Dineva. First off, I wanna say that I’m a fan of your videos, and blog posts. I writing you because, I feel like my life has basically fallen apart. I’m 21 years old and I’m from Houston, Texas. I’m also a college student. Basically, for several years now, I’ve been staying at home with my mother, stepfather, and brother. I lived with them until I graduated high school and went off to college. To make a long story short with that situation, I went off to college and basically messed up my freshman year, because I was being lazy and homesick. I own up to it, and my mom was the only person that knew. Now I owe my school money which has to be paid back before I can return there, so now I’m at home going to a community college. For years prior, and even now, I have not been a fan of my mother’s boyfriend. I feel like he is extremely disrespectful to me, and my mother allows him to do it. She seems to think that I don’t want to see her happy, and she says it’s the fact that I don’t want no one telling me anything, which isn’t the case. To make a long story short, we got into an argument about him, and I told her I could go stay with my grandmother and father whom I really don’t have much of a relationship with. They said I can come stay with them and to add insult to injury, my dad called my mother on the phone and started an argument with her after I told him not to. He made the situation worse. They never came and got me, they made excuses, and ignored my phone calls. Now my mom has completely cut me off, and I may become homeless soon. What should I do?

(That’s some regal, Black Love in that picture, isn’t it?) The days of T.O.N.Y. are now over for the baby Knowles! (T.O.N.Y. stands for: The Other Night whY, for those who aren’t familiar with her music)
Congrats are in order for Solange and her longtime love Alan Ferguson, the two tied the knot on Sunday in New Orleans, Louisiana, where the couple has resided, along with Solange’s 10-year-old son, Juelz (from a previous marriage) since 2013. The 28-year-old singer received a birthday gift of a lifetime when 51-year-old Alan asked for her hand in marriage on her birthday this past June, while vacationing in the Caribbean. The lovebirds dated for five years and she even credits him for giving her a sense of balance in her personal life.
The theme was all shades of white, not only were the bride and groom looking great in their ivory jumpsuit and white tux, but every guest was dressed in some shade of white (best dressed goes to Ms. Tina Knowles, she was snatched and highly favored. AMEN!) Solange and Alan arrived to their wedding in the Bywater district riding white painted bicycles with white roses in the basket of the bike that Solange rode on. Solange’s jumpsuit was made by Stephane Rolland and Alan’s white suit was by Lanvin. Of course the family was there to support Solo and Alan on their big day -her mother, Ms. Tina Knowles and her beau, actor Richard Lawson, the entire Carter clan was in attendance and naturally, Solange’s son Daniel Smith Jr., affectionately known as Juelz, was there on his mom’s big day. (No Matthew wasn’t there, y’all know he wasn’t allowed at these type of functions, especially since his new found baby mother used to be Solange’s “friend” Bye trifling, stay home with your wife!) Notable absent was Kelly Rowland, who was a bridesmaid at Solange first wedding -but as you know, she just gave birth to her baby boy Titan, so no one expected her to be there while getting adjusted to motherhood. Also missing Michelle Williams, auntie is probably booked to capacity with the success of her new show on Oxygen “Fix My Choir” (I swear on Black “hair like wool” Jesus, this is not shade.)

With great sadness I report to you guys that Mariah from Married to Medicine has suffered a miscarriage. On October 20th, I reported that she was pregnant with twins [Married To Medicine’s Mariah Huq Pregnant With Twins. Just In Time For A Story Line…], and it is with great sadness that I must report on November 11th, this is no more.
In a statement of confirmation, her husban Aydin Huq had this to say:
Thank you for all of your well wishes on our pregnancy. It is with heavy hearts that we must announce that we have miscarried. This is by far one of the hardest things that either of us have had to go through, and we are truly saddened by this double loss. We ask that you keep our entire family lifted in prayer, and Mariah a speedy recovery. Aydin HuQ.
I guess Benzino & Althea got sick and tired of all the drama in Atlanta, so they hightailed it to L.A. for a little rest and relaxation. I was playing around on Instagram when I stumbled across a picture of Althea & Tamar. No tea no shade, the picture looked a little weird to me, because the two ladies seem like an unlikely pairing. Real talk, I was thinking to myself, "what the hell is Tamar doing with Althea?" We all are aware that Benzino & Vince know each other. Vince even appeared on an episode of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. Remember when Benzino was trying to help Karlie get get that daydream she calls a career off the ground? Exactly...
Upon further Instagram stalking, it appears that Tamar & Vince and Althea & Benzino went out to dinner and hung out for the night. No harm no foul right? Maybe not. Excessive picture taking and Instagram posting tends to be a habit of those of the female persuasion. I found it a little odd that majority of the pics and the videos from the night were posted by Benzino. Ok F&ck the bullsh!t. Let me stop talking in riddles. All this Instgram flexing feels like ghetto marketing. It feels like a ploy to be regarded in higher status. In my eyes, It felt like Benzino was saying "hey world, look, we hang out with Tamar & Vince." Maybe I'm reaching, maybe I'm doing the most, but it just didn't feel natural. In all honestly it felt kinda of creepy and calculated.
Anyway, check out the rest of the pictures from Benzino & Thi Thi's romp with Tamar & Vince. Continue reading
Nessa Girl, these reality TV shows do a very good job on confusing the hell out of me these days. It is very hard for me that K. Michelle’s friend Tracie flew from Memphis to New York to return K’s dog, with zero intentions of flying back home. Especially considering the fact that K had been avoiding her calls and texts. Sh!t like this only happens in the land of reality tv.
On episode 2 of K. Michelle’s ‘My Life’, K goes from being an R&B Singer to a boarding house operator. Nema, a bish K hardly knows needs a place to live, and K’s other friend Tracie, a proven thief also needs to a place to lay her head. If you think this a recipe for disaster, trust me it is.
If you missed Episode 2 of k. Michell’s ‘My Life’, get into it down below
When you’re not even suitable to raise your own child, it is hard for me to take your recommendations on who is suitable to raise your child. Let that thought set the tone for this post.
Often time you guys may ask me why I don’t review certain shows. The answer is, because sometimes I just want to watch tv without it being work. I don’t closely follow Love & Hip Hop Hollywood, I don’t know any of the cast personally, and I don’t think I know any of the producers either. With that, it truly affords me the luxury to watch the show the same as some 50-year old White woman in Montana, objectively and for entertainment purposes only. All that being said, Moniece really gets under my skin. I really think the root of Moniece’s issues is that she wants Fizz’s Black & Mild smoking ass back.
I try my hardest to stray away from subscribing to traditional gender roles. If anything, I’m more of a feminist. However, it is really hard for me to refrain from feeling like it reflects really badly on a woman when she isn’t in primary care of her young child. I’m sorry, I feel like if it is humanly possible, a four-year-old child needs to be in the care of his mother. Yes dads can do just as an efficient job if they have to, as Fizz has illustrated, but damn. After watching this Monday’s (nov 10th) episode of Love & Hip Hop Hollywood, it borderline enraged me that Moniece has so much to say about who Fizz is dating as it relates to the welfare of her child, yet, this chick, as grown as she is, has deemed her own self incapable of taking care of her child at the moment. Seriously, Moniece has big nerves. I personally wouldn’t open myself up to the scrutiny of my ability to parent, by calling into question someone else’s. If my roses smelled like boo boo, chile, I would never offer anyone whiff, OKAY! Continue reading
