Everything in this life has a cost. I’ve found that the freest of the free tends to be the most costly. We live in a world that teaches us to aspire towards a one-dimensional ideal of success. A big house, a foreign car, designer clothes, expensive jewelry, and lavish vacations is what its all about. More so than not, celebrities have all of these things, and we think they are living the good life. Looking beyond the glitz & glam, one has to ask, “but are they really?” Privacy, protection from embarrassment, safety, the ability to go pick up a roll of tissue from Target, are all things that one forgoes when they make the transition to being a celebrity. On the surface these things may seem trivial. Hell, many of you, especially those of you who are struggling to make ends meet may be thinking, “that’s not that bad of a trade off.” I challenge you to think again. Privacy is like insurance; you never need it, until you need. Just ask Phaedra Parks. I’m sure she can tell you all about it.
Season 7 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta just started, and I am over it and exhausted with the bullsh!t already. The careless blend of real life issues and desperate attempts to stay relevant enough to earn a living has just run its course on my DVR. To be honest, I don’t find the dissolution of Phaedra’s marriage or family entertaining, Quite frankly the sh!t is rather sad and depressing. Then, the moment you stop watching Phaedra’s sad ass storyline, we have to watch Kenya and her madness. No tea no shade, they need to recast the whole damn show, or take the sh!t off the air in its entirety. Perhaps I’m so over all of this because I know many of the ladies personally, and get’s to live some of this foolishness along side them. I don’t know…
Since I’m talking about it, and the world is talking about it, I might as well TALK ABOUT IT. What would Jesus do? That is the question I wanted to ask Phaedra as Apollo moved through his sentencing process seemingly alone. From the outside looking in, Phaedra being his wife and all, things looked a little bad on her behalf. From the inside looking out, I can totally see where Phaedra is coming from. Going back to that privacy thing that I was talking about earlier, why does what I think even matter? Why the hell is it that I along with millions of other even have an opinion on someone else’s marriage & family? Why is it that Phaedra has to be subjected to our thoughts and opinions? I can guarantee you that Phaedra would be willing to trade in a couple handbags, a few pairs of shoes, and some of those bedrooms for some privacy. Continue reading
Lawd I think Tiny done f&cked up. Instead of just issuing an arbitrary apology, or saying nothing, Tiny decides to get a little defensive. When Blogger Sandra Rose Tweeted out her story about Tiny throwing sorority hand signs, Tiny responded in a way that isn’t too flattering to many Black Greeks
Tiny’s response further demonstrates her ignorance on college life and Greek affairs. Had she been semi educated about the goings ons of Black Greek life, she would have known that by no means was this acceptable, and her response would have had more of an apologetic tone. Being Greek myself, I don’t really take offense to this. Hell, at the end of the day, throwing up a hand sign isn’t hurting anyone. However, I do recognize that there are other Greeks who feel a tad bit more strongly about the matter, and I respect that. Again going back to Tiny’s ignorance, we have all at some point thrown up the signs of various organizations, however, I’m sure most of us weren’t dumb enough to photograph it. Perhaps Tiny’s next venture should be ‘Tiny & Shekinah Go To College’. Ha…
Do you want to know one thing that bother’s me about these Medicine Wives? The drama that they partake in is so drawn out and stale. I was shocked to find out that the altercation that took place yesterday (nov 5)[ Married To Medicine EMERGENCY: Quad At Urgent Care Center After Having Something Thrown In Her Face During On Set Fight ] between Quad & Lisa-Nicole all stems from some mess that happened BEFORE the taping of the season 2 reunion.
Lisa-Nicole was a season 2 newbie. In preparation for the season 2 reunion and not knowing what to expect, Lisa ran a few background checks on some of her cast-mates. Lisa-Nicole herself has cited these as her motives. All of this is information was passed on to the other ladies by one of Lisa-Nicole’s former assistants. In all honesty, finding out someone ran a background check on me really wouldn’t upset me. Hell, ain’t nothing there but a few traffic tickets and some bad credit. I went to jail once for driving with a suspended license, but there’s really nothing I have to conceal. Well, Quad isn’t buying Lisa-Nicole’s motives and I’m guessing that she feels Lisa’s intentions were far more treacherous. Either that, or Quad seriously has something to hide. With that, Quad has been feeling some kind of way about Lisa since the taping of the season 2 reunion. That’s a long ass time to be perturbed if you asked me. Continue reading
This is hot off the presses and developing NOW we speak. Quad Webb0Lunceford is presently at a Downtown Atlanta urgent care facility being checked out after an altercation took place while filming. Quad was heard saying by those in the waiting room that someone threw something in her face. I’m being told that Quad & Co called ahead to brief the staff that they were en route, and she was swiftly taken to the back. Patients in the waiting room are currently pissed as hell because wait times have been in excess of 45 minutes, yet Qaud was seen immediately.
It is unclear at this time who the altercation involved. Considering that Quad is presently at the urgent care center, it is reasonable to assume that non of the doctors were around. I’ve started making phone calls and shot out a few texts. As the information starts to pour in, I will keep you guys updated.
Now y’all already know y’all mama ain’t the smartest thing in the world. Real talk, in this clip, Beyonce really does look like she is rocking out to the beat of her own drum. Video captured at the Brooklyn Nets vs Oklahoma City shows Beyonce rocking back and forth not to the beat of the music, but to the noise in her head. The 33-year old singer seems to be in a complete chemically induced trance. If I had to be honest, I would say she probably had just a little too much to drink. Others think its a little deeper than that. Social media has been blowing up with speculation that the singer was good and high.
Take a look at the video and you be the judge:
