Meelah Williams said “No Gawd Hunty! Before you queue up the production of UNSUNG, the 702 story, get into my video.” I know that’s right girl. Don’t count you out! The R&B Divas platform has given many of R&B past leading ladies a new shot at relaunching their music careers. Good to see that Meelah Williams has recognized the opportunity and moreover has seized it. Unlike many of the Divas who have sat on the platform for years without any new releases. The 1st season rookie has taken no time getting in the studio and pumpin out some some new tunes.

Chile, my phone has been lighting up all weekend. “The People” are trying to say Monica’s Star Spangles Banner did not wave. Honestly, I didn’t see anything wrong with her performance. I mean, the sh!t was long as hell, and i did feel like Aretha Franklin and The Mississippi Mass Choir was going to jump out of a piano at any moment. But all in all, I thought her performance was just fine. It’s the freaking Star Spangled Banner, aka the most boring and over-sang song on earth. The song is naturally the pitts.
For those of you who didn’t catch the Mayweather fight this past Saturday. Check out Monica going on to glory with the Star Spangled Banner and let The Doll Know what you think
So today is one of those days where there really isn’t a whole lot in the world that is motivating me to blog, perhaps because I have a lot weighing heavy on my mind and on my heart. Writer’s block is common around these parts these days. I have so much going on, that often times my brain is a pile of mush. I had always said that whenever I could not find anything entertaining to write about, that I would write about some of the things going on in my life. Trust me, there is always something worth wild going on in my world.
With the growing popularity of my brand has come a greater demand for my resources from others. Little do they know, just because you see a bitch on TV from time to time does not mean I am swimming in dough. Don’t tell this to my Mother. Unfortunately, we have not spoken in weeks. Why? Simply put, because she is always asking for something and seems to have some sort of crisis that requires my money every 30 days. If you want to know the truth about it… From gas money, to phone bill money, to tires for her car, to new glasses, to light bill money, to shoes for my brother. You name it, I’ve been asked for it, and subsequently have paid for it.
You know what bothers me the most? Not the constant badgering, but the silent expectation that it is my duty to provide it because I “have it”. I shared my frustration with Shirley Murdock during dinner one night, and she introduced to me a very powerful saying. “I may have it, but I don’t have it for that.” At that moment, I felt delivered from the guilt of being asked for $100 for some miscellaneous want, having the money in my pocket, but not wanting to fork it over.

Chile Scandal has been gone for so long that I damn near forgot all about it. Thursday September 25 at 9pm is the date and time we can all begin to breath again because that is when life will be given. The above photo is the latest cast photo that has been released. In a true Shonda Ryhmes fashion, this photo is all kinds of cryptic. If you notice, everyone is looking straight ahead at the camera with the exception of Davie and Mellie. What’s the tea Shonda in the Honda, what’s the tea? Who knows. Let’s not forget that Scandal left off with Olivia boarding a plane on a destination unknown. The question that season 4 begs to ask is, ” where in the world is Carmen Sandiego Olivia Pope.” Quiet as its kept, she’s probably at the same place Apollo was hiding before he turned himself in. Lol
Chile Columbus Short knows he f&cked himself out of a good job. All I know is Olivia Pope’s next new hire better be Black. Oh and another thing, I hope like hell that this unrealistic love affair between Olivia and Fitz is done!!!! I’m just over it!
So by now, I’m sure you guys have heard all the hoopla and the drama about Apollo Nida not turning himself in to prison they way he was supposed to yesterday. Well y’all can put all the chatter to rest. A day late, Apollo has turned himself in. Now I honestly try my hardest to avoid blogging about Apollo and Phaedra as it relates their family virtually falling apart. This 8 year prison stint is just a hard thing to deal with all the way around for all parties involved. However, some things are unavoidable.
Rumor has it that Apollo showed up at he and Phaedra’s home, dashed through the house like a crazy person, was confiscating belongings, and yelling so loud that the police was called. Was this the act of an emotionally unstable man or a man that was making one last attempt to make sure his family was alright? Well let’s see. In total honesty, if Phaedra didn’t want to film yesterday, she could have simply made a call and not filmed. Additionally, its feeling all to coincidental that the cameras happened to be at your house when Apollo showed up and acting crazy. My personal take on the entire situation is both Phaedra and Apollo realized that they are in a shitty situation, and they might as well capitalize off of it. Every season of RHOA is unofficially all about one of the women. Well, welcome to Phaedra’s season. We sure as well will be tuning in to catch all the tea and Phaedra’s last month’s before Apollo went to prison, and her life post Apollo. Should be interesting. Once you throw in Kenya and the newbies, this season is sure to be a smash.
8 years will come and go, not to mention, there is cable in prison. Apollo will be able to somewhat partake in what is going on in the free world. I’m sure we’ll probably get some “from prison” interviews from him, if the warden permits. All in all, while we are highly intrigued and entertained by the goings ons of Phaedra & Appollo, let’s remember that our entertainment is simultaneously someone’s pain. Enjoy the gossip and the tea, but on your off time, send up a little prayer for a family in transition.
Apollo created 1 final Instavideo before he checked into the pen. Check it out below. Continue reading →
