MEET THE REAL NENE!
FORMER MODEL NENE MARKS LAUNCHES HAIR CARE LINE, NENE’S SECRET
AND SHE’S INCENSED OVER CONFUSION WITH NENE LEAKES
SEPTEMBER 2013 (NEW YORK, NY)— Just a few short months ago, ethnic beauty veteran, Brian K. Marks, partnered with his wife, Nene Marks, to introduce Nene’s Secret hair collection. To date, Nene’s Secret has been well received by consumers, is currently available nationwide in beauty supply stores and has been approved by some of the largest chain stores in America. Nonetheless, there is one thing plaguing the company, the perpetual confusion of its owner being reality television personality, Nene Leakes.
You have people who are a credit to the group they belong to, and then you have those that make it hard for everyone. Sharing the common thread of once being closeted, members of the LGBT community are appalled at the malicious outing of Mr. Cee by street walker Bimbo Warehouse. I can’t speak for the entire community, but i gauged the general sentiments of most and the consensus is what Bimbo Warehouse did was not cool. One of my favorite YouTube personalities and friends JustinJ had a few choice words for Bimbo.
“Now don’t you understand man universal law. What you throw out comes back to you, star. Never underestimate those who you scar. Cause karma, karma, karma comes back to you hard” this is one of my favorite lryics from The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill’s “Lost Ones”. When we take it upon ourselves to shed light on situations we might bring unwanted attention to ourselves and do more harm than good to our own community. There is nothing more shameful to me than when someone who is in the gay community who knows of the struggles, the hate, and sometimes fear decides to out someone for their own personal gain. The cycle of homophobia will continue if we out men for being gay as if it’s a problem. Looking at the comments on the video all I see are people who bash and refuse to accept us. Some are glad to see yet that another black man has been outed for being on the DL. You see “faggot” through out the comments but they were not referring to the vlogger they used those words to demean the individual being outed. At what point do we realize that forcing someone out the closet doesn’t do anything but spew more hatred to the people in the gay community. When you outed this man you took his voice the same voice that you had to find whenever you came out and starting putting your “chicken cutlets” in your shirts and calling them breasts. People like this are part of the homophobic problem in the gay community. However there are many people in the gay community who work to end these stereotypes but it’s situations like this that sat us back. Do not get to thinking that this vlogger is a transexual because he is not, he is a simple minded boy in a tired wig. As I sit here right now at 1:00am I scroll on twitter to find out that somebody has posted a video of this so called vlogger munching on trade I don’t know rather to laugh and get my kiki or do a review on his lack luster performance. ~ Justin

In case y’all missed it two real life fashion queens are are engulfed in a real life fashion fued.
It all started when Saskwatch Leon Talley told The Grio that Russell Simmons had no business sitting amongst the fashion elite during New York Fashion Week.
“I don’t think Russell Simmons should be seated on anybody’s front row this week after having done that disgusting Harriet Tubman sex tape,” André said. “He is a man of great achievement. He is a great philanthropist — why would he think it would be an honorable thing to do? He said he thought it was funny. That is not funny, it is outrageously disrespectful to the legacy and history of Harriet Tubman and to the struggle.”
I wasn’t a fan of that Harriet Tubman crap that Russell allowed to be produced. It was tacky as hell. However, Russell did apologize for it. Does Russell deserve to be shunned by the fashion folks as a result of his mistake. He doesn’t think so. Check out his choice words for Madea Leon Talley Continue reading
I’m so got damn tired of Bill O’Reilly I don’t know what to do. He reminds me a lot of Sandra Rose. They both say unpopular things just to get a rise out of folks. The sh!t has gotten old now…
“The reason Trayvon Martin died is because he looked a certain way, and it wasn’t based on skin color,” O’Reilly told West on Friday. “If Trayvon Martin had been wearing a jacket like you are and a tie, Mr. West, this evening, I don’t think George Zimmerman would’ve had any problem. But he was wearing a hoodie, and he looked a certain way, and that way is how gangstas look. And therefore he got attention.”
–Bill O’Reilly to Allen West on Friday’s “O’Reilly Factor.”

At the conclusion of the R&B Divas LA reunion when Kelly Price made the big tour announcement, I fell dead to the bed. Is it me, or was the whole announcement shady bootz? Kelly announced that she along with Faith Evans, Chante Moore, Dawn Robinson, and Brownstone would be going on tour. The announcement caught everyone off guard. I like to refer to this lineup as the friends, family and favoritism tour. Much like the Sesame Street game, one of these things is not like the other. Based on their reactions, no one was more caught off guard than Lil Mo. Am I the only one who felt like Chante should have perhaps filled Mo in, even if no paperwork had been signed yet? Then it threw me how Kelly paid a sickening piece of homage to Michel’le, citing that before there was Faith or Mary J Blige, Michel’le was singing over hip hop beats. However, when the tour line up was announced, Michel’le s name was nowhere in the mix. Really Girl? But Dawn Robinson made the short list? Ohh ok. We all see what this is. There is so much mess here that I don’t even know where to begin breaking it all down. Continue reading
There are so many angles I could take with this post, but I am going to show a bit of restraint and take the socially responsible route. If you have ever wanted to understand the struggle of someone who is suffering with their sexuality as it relates to being accepted, the Mr. Cee Story would be a great place to start. Is he gay, is he straight, is he bi, is he on the down low? I’ve got a better question, why does it matter? He likes what he likes and that’s all to it. We’ve got to stop putting people in boxes because are own level of comprehension is too basic to think beyond what has been force fed to us by society.
It’s looking like Mr. Cee is finally coming to terms with who he is and is one step closer to being free. In an interview with Hot97 Mr. Cee revealed that he has been in denial about his affinity for transvestites for a long time. He also dishes the dirt on receiving fellatio from transvestites. Tearfully Mr. Cee discusses discusses slowly moving towards a place where he can be who he is without fear of shame and judgement from others. It’s pretty good stuff. Catch these T’s Continue reading
