In all honesty, I was blogging from Starbucks yesterday while listening to K. Michelle’s new mix-tape. I tend to passively listen to music I don’t know, and wait for a song to grab my attention. My fingers came to a pause when “She Can Have You” rang out through my ear buds. I played the song over and over again until finally I had to stop the post I was working on and do a quick write-up on K.Michelle’s mix-tape. I made it a point to highlight the fact that I particularly loved the song “She Can Have You’. What I liked about the song is that it sounds like something Aretha Franklin would have sang, and her sister Carolyn would have wrote. The song puts me in the spirit of ‘Ain’t No Way.’
Nonetheless, I was blogging on about my business when my Twitter timeline started lighting up about how Tamar Braxton recorded the song first. No tea no shade, I was not being messy at all when I highlighted K. Michelle’s rendition of the song. Unbeknownst to me before I wrote my initial post, Tamar recorded the song. Now I’ll be the first person to admit, I am messy. That being said, I’m a bold bish that has no problem owning hers. In this instance, I genuinely was not trying to throw shade at Tamar. No tea no shade, I didn’t have to throw any shade Tamar’s way, because K. Michelle handled that by just recording the song. No GAWD hunty!!
In all honesty, this I how I like to see things fought out. Take it to the booth, not to Twitter and television interviews. You got beef, sing! You don’t like me, sing! Got something to say, SING! That being said, now we have to perfectly mastered versions of essentially the same song. Who ran it?
NOTE: K. Michelle says she recorded this song 3 years ago with TC. Meaning before Tamar…
Sooo, Basketball Wives L.A. is back and from the looks of things, these heffas are not skipping a beat. Crazy a$$ Jackie Christie has picked up right where she left off from the looks of things. Say what you want to say about Jackie Christie, but the senile fashionista is entertaining to say the least. For whatever reason I can deal with Jackie’s brand of crazy, but can’t put up with Kenya’s. I’ve always lived for Malaysia. I love her poise and television sophistication. Not to mention, mama’s hair is always layed and she tends not to be messy. Draya is back playing her part to the max. As usual she’s serving tits & a$$ realness.
Just who are these new chicks? Chile I don’t half know, and quiet as its kept, I’m not checking for two of them. For those that have not watched yet, Laura, Gloria, Brooke, and whoever else was on the show is gone. The only survivors left are Jackie, Dray, and Malaysia. Welcome Sundy, Brandi, Brittish, and Arriane. We’ve met Sundy during past seasons. She’s one of Jackie’s messy a$$ friends that comes along with a slew of drama and Scandal. The biggest thing to know about Sundy at this point is that her daughter was caught sucking d!ck down to da Twitter and the word on the street is that Sundy is the one who leaked the photo. The children say Sundy was mad because her daughter called her out for being a whore publicly and Sundy retaliated by posting her daughters naughty pic. Sundy vehemently denies the accusations, but…
Sundy Carter, a long-time friend of Jackie, starts stirring up trouble from the moment she is introduced to the group. Suffering from one scandal after another, Sundy wishes she could keep her private life private. Unfortunately for her, the secrets just don’t stop coming and her consistent support of Jackie lands her in hot water on more than one occasion. ~ VH1
Meet the other chicks and catch the T on how I really feel about them. Continue reading
Chile, I don’t know what the hell is going on with those Braxton sisters, but whatever the hell it is, the ish is real. I’ve been hearing chatter for sometime now that the tension between the background Braxton’s and Tamar is really thick. Quiet as it’s kept, folks are saying that the heart of the problem is that the background Braxton’s are jealous of Tamar. I’m not going to lie, I kind of believe it. In all honesty, it would be hard to not be jealous of Tamar to some degree. Think about it, we all were left behind in the trenches while Toni went on to become a big star. Then we were thrown whatever scraps Toni was willing to part with. Then out of nowhere, you are no longer one of the doo-wop singers, but a popping star with the ultra rich and powerful husband. Bishhhh I don’t know about y’all, but my a$$ would feel some kind of way.
Nonetheless, on Valentine’s day, Towanda was not feeling the love. Towanda engaged in a little twitter banter with some Tamartians, and ish got real when Towanda layed Vince to rest. Catch this:
See, with sisters like this, who needs bloggers? Catch these T’s Continue reading
Come through ghetto fish! Yes GAWD Bish!! I am here for all of this right here. I think the one thing that I like about K. Michelle the most is that she is unapologetically her. Sure at times it gets her in trouble, but who cares… What’s life without a lil trouble. K’s new mix-tape features the grit and and realness that we’ve come to expect from her as well as that true to R&B sound she’s sworn to deliver. Mama is doing her thing. Undeniably this bish can SANG!!!
Y’all know I am a ballad fanatic. The ballads on this bad boy are sickening. K’s got a song on here called ‘She Can Have You.’ I can swear she channeled Aretha Franklin and her sister Carolyn on that track!!! Work out K! What’s understood needs no understanding, and K. Michelle has the right stuff. Say what you want to say about her, but her energy is a breath of fresh air to our current musical climate and I thank her for it! If K. Michelle continues to ride this lane, SHE WILL ALWAYS HAVE A SPOT OVER AT FUNKY DINEVA DOT COM! Check out the mix tape and let The Doll know what you think. Continue reading
Let me tell y’all something, Carmen is a better friend than I even know how to pretend to be. No tea no shade, I would have cussed Mama Joyce out back at David’s Bridal when she took her shoe off and acted as if she wanted to throw it at me. I’m not going to promise you that Mama Joyce would have been able to leave the type of voice mail that she left on Carmen’s phone on my voice mail and not have caught a verbal lashing.
From fear of my reaction, my mother would never do some of the things that we have witnessed Mama Joyce doing. That being said is Kandi’s lack of action empowering Mama Joyce to drive wedges between the people Kandi loves? I may stepping out on a limb, but I think so. There is a certain amount of slack that you allot older people. You may even give a little extra slack due to family ties, but got damn Kandi, at what point does enough become enough. It aggravated me to no end when Kandi started crying in front of Todd & Carmen as if they were the problem. Then my blood started to boil when Kandi pointed out that the difference between a mother and a fiance & friend is that a mother will always be there. Newsflash, A husband will always be there too Kandi if you can get his ass to the alter.
So what is the answer to Kandi’s dilemma? Catch these T’s Continue reading
There is a lot of buzz going around that the powers that be now have it out for Nene Leakes. Judging from the general sentiments of the the public, there are quite a few people that would like to see her knocked down a peg or two. I really don’t know what to say. It surely does look like Kenya Moore is the rising star of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. I would imagine that Nene would take slight exception with that considering that RHOA has pretty much been her show for 5 seasons.
Nene’s evolution has been one to watch. She went from tired ass country fish, to star on the rise, to household name, to star. With the addition of Nene’s new attitude and the subtraction of the New Normal and Glee, it looks like this may be the beginning of the fall from grace if Nene and her people are not able to reign in control of her image and attitude. Season 6 of RHOA has been less than favorable for Leakes. Coincidentally or intentionally, Nene has been highlighted on multiple occasions starting chaos, throwing major shade, and speaking in reference to the other ladies as if they are mere peons and shes the queen. Quiet as its kept, better yet, loud as its given away, the people are not featuring all that sas.
How is it that the same things people once loved you for, they now hate you for? Is this a new Nene Leakes, or has the agenda in the editing room changed? There are so many people who have their hands in the pot, no one can concretely say. We all have our opinions and at the end of the day what we feel individually is what we feel. However, one thing is for certain, I think we can all agree that we are at the start of a shift in power over in the housewives camp. Who will stay, who will go, who will be the new Queen Bee?
