Ewwww Chile… Where do I start? For the last few weeks, Marlo Hampton has been weighing on my mind heavily. As we prepare for the return of The Real Housewives of Atlanta to our Sunday night television lineup, I’ve been pondering on all the changes and developments that have taken place over the years. My Gawd, we have really travelled and grown with these ladies. Think about it, so much has happened between Nene and her first nose and Nene her current nose. The one thing that has yet to happen is the completion of Chateau Sheree’, but we’ll save that for another day.

It goes without saying, from day one, Nene Leakes was the star of the show. Her sassy, keep it real, tell it like it is attitude, kept things interesting and the fans locked in. Over time, Nene’s fame afforded her opportunities that forced her to have to make some pretty drastic modifications to that brass attitude we had grown to love.  No big deal right? The same Nene Leakes that we all grew to love was still there at her core. Wrong! It may be true that personal growth most certainly advanced Leakes in areas unimaginable, but it damn sure caused her to lose footing on RHOA. The inability to cut up, show her ass, cuss out, fight, etc, left Leakes’s “Queen Bee” seat very vulnerable and susceptible to infiltration.   Enter Kenya Moore, and Nene was ultimately dethroned.

Everyone knows, I really don’t feature Miss Kenya Moore AT ALL! However, The Doll has never had problem giving credit where credit is due. Listen to me, when you are a washed up, f&cked out pageant queen, with no tangible employable skills, no real income, and no general interest from Hollywood, you gotta do what you gotta do. Kenya Moore was given an opportunity of a lifetime, and that bitch TURNT IT! For that, you have got to give it to that b!tch. She did exactly what she was supposed to. Kenya exhausted every resource at her disposal, took no prisoners, and kept her emotions out of the game. Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: Proof That R&B Music Isn’t Dead – Tamar Braxton ‘Let Me Know’ Ft. Future

Posted in music, New Music, reality tv

Now y’all know I have a love hate relationship with this 1970′s sissy in a blonde wig. However, The Doll never minds paying HOMAGE when HOMAGE is due. Bae Bae let me tall y’all something, Tamar Braxton did the damn thang with her newest single ‘Let Me Know’. No tea no shade, I could have done without Future. He’s about as annoying to me as T-Pain, but Future on this track is going to ensure that it gets bumped in the clubs.

What I’m not understanding is that someone African-American female artist are abandoning R&B for Pop and other 5 cent bubble gum, citing that “its not selling” so on and so forth. Yet, Tamar Braxton has found away stay true to her R&B roots, make music that sounds radio worthy,  and b!tch The People like it. Some of these other female R&B singers need to step up their song selection game, including ALL THE R&B DIVAS. I think these days and times, so many people get hung up on writing their own music in an effort to capture all the publishing. Forget that, some of these hoes need to look on the back of Tamar & Beyonce’s cd and call some of these writers that they are hi-jacking music from. Y’all Beyonce & Tamar them be adding a ooh and an ahhh here and there and be tallmbout they wrote the song. Girl bye! It’s ok though. They don’t have to write em, just as long as they can sang em!

Get into Tamar’s latest hit:

Raven Symone Doesn’t Want To Be Called African-American, But AMERICA Will Still Call And Treat Her Black!

Posted in Black History

raven-symone-oprah

Nessa Girl, I just got through watching this sit down interview that Raven Symone just did with Oprah, and girl I must say that I am a little concerned for little Olivia (Raven’s character on the Cosby show). Raven Symone, someone who is probably so far removed from “the Black experience” in American due to her early starts in Hollywood ignorantly expressed to Oprah

“I don’t know where my roots go to. I don’t know how back they go. I don’t know how far back, and I don’t know what country in Africa I’m from. I do know that my roots are in Louisiana. I’m an American, and that’s a colorless person because we’re all people. I have lots of things running through my veins.”

Oprah who was damn near startled out of her chair tried to give this miseducated sister a chance to clean up the mess that she had just made, but in a true unaware fashion, Raven dug the hole even deeper

“I’m an American. I have darker skin. I have a nice, interesting grade of hair.”

Here’s the thing. I totally get Raven and I see where she was trying to go with this whole thing. However, this was a misguided attempt to try to be a part of a greater whole, that quite frankly Raven and those that look like her are not the gatekeepers of. Unfortunately, the term “American” generically translates to “White people”, “Caucasian people”, “Becky & Heather”. Have you ever hear a white person refer to themselves as a “White – American” or a “Caucasian-American”? No, and you never will. However, everyone of any other race must hyphenate and attach a prefix to “American” (i.e. “African-American”, “Asian-American”, “Latino- American”). What Raven needs to understand is that in an effort to denounce being labelled, she’s herself is still blindly categorizing and labeling herself.  The issue, and one that I think Raven is totally unaware of, is that she is trying to be a part of a larger label that never intended to encompass her Black ass.

I caution Sister Raven to be a little careful with trying to disassociate with the one label of people, who are going to be the only label of people she’ll have to turn to, if some major sh!t hits the fan. No tea no shade, with the cocktail of cultures/races that she claims run through her veins, Raven most closely resembles the descendant of someone who was on a plantation during American Slavery. With that, “America” has and will continue to treat her as such. Unfortunately, Raven wants to be called “American”, but “America” is calling her “Black” or “African-American”. It perplexes me why people want to be a part of something that does not want them. Perhaps Raven’s early introduction to globs of money and high-powered Hollywood circles have her looking at the world out of rose tinted glasses. I’m here to hand her ass some some $20 clear lenses readers from Wal-Mart. Here Raven girl, look through these…

Something tells me Oprah has probably had a few conversations with Raven offline about this, then again, Oprah just discovered she was Black when her network started failing and she teamed up with Tyler Perry to save it. BLOOP!

 

T.I.’s Fake Sister Precious Overheard Telling People T.I. & Tiny Are Not Together And How T.I. Has New Baby

Posted in music

Chile let me tell you something, you have got to be real careful where you at when you get to bumpin your damn gums and telling other peoples business. You just might be in the company of a bish that knows Miss Funky Dineva Ross. In this case, Precious’s ass was! Chile, T.I. cousin, who y’all think is his sister, who I thought was his Mama, was just running her damn mouth unknowingly confirmed what we already knew, and what I had reported on long ago. [READ T.I. Has Newborn Baby and NOT From Tiny. Couple Gets Physical At Grammy’s + Conspiracy To Cover It Up]  Much to my surprise, I thought T.I. and Tiny were working things out and moving towards T.I. moving back into the house. Chile, according to Precious and the folks that overheard her talking, T.I. & Tiny are a wrap!

Real talk, I think that T.I. & Tiny are fully aware that “the whole Atlanta” (Marlo Hampton Voice) knows they are not together. It is my belief that T.I. & Tiny  have chosen to conceal the status of their relationship in an effort to preserve the integrity of T.I. The Family Hustle (T.I.’s family themed reality show). I’m guessing that T.I. and the family signed a multi-year deal, and doesn’t want anything to get in the way of them fulfilling the deal and moreover interfering with the money. I ain’t mad with them. Why mess up the money because the relationship is messed up? Ain’t no need in taking two losses. For those of y’all that watch T.I. and The Family Hustle, have you noticed that we have not scene T.I. & Tiny appear together in a single scene? Trust me, that ain’t no coincidence.

I’m over the whole are they together are they not together mess. What I want to know is who is the chick that is walking around with T.I.’s newest baby on her hip. I’m sure she’s probably being paid to lay low. However, I’m also sure she has some messy friends that knows she’s T.I.’s Baby Mama. So listen, any of her messy friends, y’all send me an email with her name and a picture (funkydineva@funkydineva.com). Better yet, let me find Precious and just ask her. LOL
