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?

Let me tell you something! You bitches will not make me feel bad about myself because I don’t have a man on Valentines Day. Quiet as its kept if that poor excuse of a negro that you are going to dinner with tonight is what got you feeling better than us single folk, then your ass ain’t got a man on Valentine’s Day either! How do you like those apples? I accept and embrace my singledom, you on the other hand are allowing a man to baffle your mind and bamboozle your heart all for some Red Lobster! Girl Bye
Just what the hell is Valentines Day? It’s not like its some religious holiday, or national day of remembrance. It’s some raggedy ass faux holiday that greeting card companies created to add to their bottom line. I can’t believe some of y’all are walking around here feeling bad about yourselves because you don’t have a valentine. Bitch, you ain’t have no man the other 364 days of the year and you were breathing fine. Now you’re sitting at your desk, looking at your co-workers roses, and you’re waiting to exhale. Girl bye! You better love yourself! That’s probably the reason your ass ain’t got a man. Don’t nobody wanna lay up with no self pitying broad that’s ready to give it up for a box a chocolates and a lobster dinner.
In an era of side chicks and #’2, the media seems to bee preoccupied with these Scandal / Being Mary Jane type story lines. I personally think art is imitating life, and what we are now seeing on our television screen now is a reflection of whats been going on for years. However, there are a select group that feel differently and take major exception with “the white man screwing the sister” or ” the successful sister screwing the married man.” I get it, I’m just not losing any sleep over it. I came across this pretty cool article that is sure to spark conversation. Check it out:
Perhaps a more suitable title for this blog would be, “The Deterioration of Clair Huxtable into Being Mary Jane,” but for the sake of attracting readership I chose to go with the word, ‘evolution.’ I wanted to purposely offend all of your memories of the smooth, professional, beautiful wife, mother of five, New York City lawyer, television persona, Clair Huxtable and make you think twice about your affections for the the charming, beautiful, professional adulterer, Mary Jane.
In a time when black America needs no help in projecting harmful and negative stereotypes within its communities, television writers and more specifically black television writers are cashing in exponentially on black female television heroines such as Olivia Pope and Mary Jane while they avoid less controversial role portrayals like Clair Huxtable as if she were a plague, but I understand. Clair is played out.
No one can be that beautiful, that happy, and that professional all of the time. Moreover, by today’s television standards, Clair is boring. She loved Cliff and Cliff only. When her children needed her advice, she seemed happy to give it to them and her job always seemed to be a distant third behind Sandra, Denise, Theo, Vanessa, Rudy, and Cliff respectively.
Understandably, in a time when more women are working and raising children in their single state, I am sure it can be hard to relate to Clair Huxtable, but is it really that easy to relate to Mary Jane? Continue reading
Sooooo, I have not even seen the First Think Like A Man so I can’t say much. Though I am not a fan of cheap black cinema featuring recycled talent, I will say that I am glad that we are currently in another era were a lot of black films are being produced. I looked at the trailer and it appears to be pretty on par with all the other Kevin Heart / Gabrielle Union movies. As with everything, there is a market for this. Enjoy!
Y’all send a prayer up for my boy Andre 3000. My girl Michelle Brown (Straight From The A) who is close friends with a slew of folks over in the Outkast camp got a call yesterday reporting some sad news. Lawrence Walker, biological father of Andre Benjamin has passed away from a heart attack. Complete details are still fuzzy at the moment. It’s being reported that Walker lost power to his home due to the ice storms we are experiencing in Atlanta. He went outside to chop some firewood, and when he returned indoors, he suffered a heart attack. Catch these T’s Continue reading
Chile, f&ck retail. Word has gotten out that travelers can bring their own liquor on-board airplanes, and it is perfectly legal. For those of you who can’t stay from down to da bar like me, this is great news. Typically when traveling, if I make it to my gate area in time, I’ll stop off at whatever liquor serving establishment is in my terminal and have a cocktail. We all know how much airport liquor can cost. After paying $13 for a vodka and cranberry, I’ll typically have one or two more once I board the plane. Y’all don’t judge me, my nerves are bad when I’m in the sky.
Typically in the sky, the drinks run on average $7 a piece. No tea no shade, all they are doing is dumping out a shot of whatever liquor out of those small mini bottles that you find at that checkout counter in the liquor store. Well hell, why give them $7 for something that you can buy your self for $2. No tea, many times the liquor stores sells the mini bottles of rum and vodka for 99 cents. In the grand scheme of things, I imagine it is counter intuitive for most to pack liquor in their travel bags consider that there are very few places that adults actually bring liquor to. However, it is good to know that you no longer, or ever for that matter, have to subject yourself to the price gouging on liquor that the airline’s impose on passengers.
