It goes without saying that Tweet has one of the most unique voices of our time. Undoubtedly, mama can sing. That being said and Tweet being on her way to Unsung, it was a no brainer that Tweet would be a viable candidate for R&B Divas Atlanta. Well production felt the same way and began courting Tweet. They met with Tweet on multiple occasions but for whatever reason there was no real thunder there. One person close to production said “quiet as its kept, they met with her… And apparently they’re still sleep from the boredom”. Another source said “we actually love Tweet, she seems a bit guarded though.” Well I ran into a friend of Tweet’s that had a few insights on the situation. Catch these T’s Continue reading
Chile, it appears as if Mimi Faust isn’t the only one with a sex scandal going on out there. Young Joc’s money must not be long enough to satisfy Karlie Redd, so she decided she would enroll in the Marlo Hampton School Of How To Get Your Bills Paid. Hiriam Hicks, is a low key, yet big time music exec who is credited for building Dru Hills career and rebuilding the careers of Ron Iseley and the Iseley Brothers. After this post, you’ll be able to add Karlie Redd to his roster. Hicks and his wife, the former stripper seen above on the right allegedly were looking to spice things up and in the bedroom, and Karlie Redd was the right flavor of vinegar. lol Catch these T’s Continue reading
You and your best friend thinking about doing reality television with one another? Do your relationship a favor and DON’T. Quiet as its kept, many close relationships find it hard to sustain after reality television comes into play. Well, as much as it saddens me to report this, Quadd Lunceford and Mariah Huq are no longer friends, following season 1 of Married to Medicine. Things have gotten so bad that restraining orders have been filed, production has been halted on several occasions, and network executives have gotten involved. Catch these T’s Continue reading
I’m baaaaaaaacccckkkk. Eww chile, if only y’all knew how glad I am to have my life back. These last 30 days have been the craziest, busiest, most joy filed days of my 30 year old life. This past Sunday marked the conclusion of a 5 show run of A Mother’s Love. A Mother’s Love is a stage play that was produced by Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker. For those of you who don’t live in Atlanta or did not get to see it, do not fret. The play will be released to DVD in coming months. I had the honor of starring in the play as a crazy bartender by the name Bella. My co-stars included Shirley Murdock, Eddie Levert, Kandi Burrus. D Woods, Q Parker, and Chandra Currelley. When I tell you night after night we shut Atlanta down! Chileee, they could not take us. Y’all just wait and see when this DVD comes out. Plans are in the making to take the stage play on the road Tyler Perry style. Speaking of Tyler, Mr. Perry slid through the back stage corridors opening night. During a scene change I ran past him and he belted out “My Hair Is Layed”. That definitely marked A high point in this whole journey. Other high points included the few times I could Shirley Murdock or Eddie Levert alone to sing alongside them. Get into Shirley Murdock and myself singing one of my all time favorite Shirley Murdock songs I Still Love You. Continue reading

Porsha Stewart has a problem with femininity. We are three episodes into Season 6 of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and we have been treated to number of Porsha’s negative associations of femininity. If you will remember, Porsha is married to former NFL player Kordell Stewart, and since the divorce papers were served, Porsha has embarked on a campaign against Kordell which consists primarily of her attacking him for being a feminine man and a possibly gay man.
Porsha seems to think that Kordell is a messy person because he is a feminine man. She attributes most of his dirty dealings with her in their divorce proceedings to his femininity and possible homosexuality. For Porsha, both femininity and homosexuality are associated with negativity, messiness, double-dealing, and chicanery. It appears that anything Kordell does–not have sex with her, buy her clothes, divorce her, haphazardly pack her clothes, misspell words, not be nice to her–is due to the fact that he is a feminine man and possibly gay. Take for example Porsha’s latest diatribe against Kordell during episode three of Atlanta Housewives,
“That’s something a queen would: be dramatic. He wants to let me know woman to woman he doesn’t give a damn about anything we had together.” Continue reading
Just so y’all know, I am not a fan of promoting music, film, products, or people on my site unless for pay. There is something so inauthentic about trying to force things on people that they may not want or need. I’ve always been of the school of thought that if what ever it is you have going on is of quality, the word will spread. However, today I am going come off my high horse and directly promote the The Best Man Holiday, much like Oprah endorsed Barrack Obama. Reason being, the film industry is in so much shock that a “Black” film performed so well. The gradient they are using to measure The Best Man Holiday’s success is the ticket sales of the Marvel film Thor. Chile I guess. Black, white, or purple, the move was just good. Love transcends color and it is my believe that anyone of any race could enjoy this film. Hell, Black people watch films and television with all white cast ALL THE DAMN time and enjoy them. So what is all the fuss about?
Look at how Time Magazine wrote up the movie. Tell me if this doesn’t have you side eyeing Time Magazine?
The weekend’s surprise is that the black-cast rom-com-dram The Best Man Holiday soared some 50% above industry forecasts and earned $30.6 million, according to preliminary studio estimates. In this followup to the 1999 The Best Man, which tallied $34.1 million in its entire run ($54 million in today’s dollars), writer-director Malcolm D. Lee (Spike’s cousin) reconvened his first film’s cast — Morris Chestnut, Monica Calhoun, Melissa De Sousa, Taye Diggs, Regina Hall, Terrence Howard, Sanaa Lathan and Nia Long — for a Christmas session of laughs, tears and a few primal screams.
Chile. Where is the Reverend Al Sharpton when you need him? Nevermind, he’s probably somewhere under a hair dryer. Anyway get into my video review of the movie and then go out and see it!! Continue reading
