*Haters, this would be your invitation to turn away ’cause we ’bout to have some fun!

As hook-ups go, just because you can’t realistically be with someone–for reasons out of your control (such as they are married, in a relationship, or sadly, even worse); it doesn’t mean a girl can’t dream.

You notice I didn’t mention something as ridiculous as not being with someone because of their race. That’s a choice that only a woman who is content with the possibility of being alone for life would make.

But let’s take a look at the white men that sista’s might say, “to hell with a color line” over! Not only because these men are fine as hell, but there is something about their personality…their swag…that reaches beyond the color line and just pulls your human spirit in.

*Let’s start with Mr. “Hey girl,” himselfRyan Gosling. Continue reading

*I guess she got it like that! That’s what women are thinking, whether they cop to it or not, about Sheryl Underwood being on the receiving end of a way down and dirty lap dance by gorgeous Tyson Beckford.

OMG!

We knew it had been a good minute since we’ve seen Mr. Beckford out and about, and now I guess we know what he’s been doing? Brushing up on… stuff. 

He is working that grind like a man who has done this before…on several occasions. And where on earth did he get that move that allows her to put his underwear on? We know it wasn’t fake because…Well look, I’ve already said too much!

Oh this is too hot to handle! Now the only question is: was it legal?

I guess y’all are going to have to decide that for yourself.

Take a look at the TMZ video that is sure to go viral, if it hasn’t already. Continue reading

Kevin O’Leary, Cast Member on ABC’s ‘Shark Tank’ Calls Black Women ‘Colorful Cockroaches’ (Watch & Respond)

*Though most of the cast members on this show seem pompous as hell to me, one in particular sticks out in this story; as he obviously has no problem saying whatever comes to mind, no matter how inappropriate.

“Success” has apparently gone to the head of one Kevin O’Leary.

As it turns out the “shark” on ABC’s “Shark Tank” feels he is big, bad & bold enough to go unfiltered in his comments; as he demonstrated by calling two African American women entrepreneurs who came on the show to present their lipstick business “colorful cockroaches.”

Watch: Key & Peele Introduce ‘Negrotown’ — Dream a Little, Won’tcha

“Negrotown”…Where you can live like a human being with rights and everything! (Comedy Central)

 

*Well blacks folks haven’t seen comedy like this on TV since the Wayans brothers were on the air. I’m talking about the brazen comedic style of Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele – better known as “Key & Peele.” The duo heads into season 5 of a show where they have been pushing the proverbial comedy envelope since they came on the Comedy Central scene with their show, “Key & Peele” in 2012. Now they’ve given us a peep into their upcoming season, which starts July 8.

Are you ready for “Negrotown?” It’s a black person’s dream,

Follow me to a place I know

Where there ain’t no pain and no sorrow

It’s the place to be if your skin is brown

I’m talkin’ ’bout Negrotown.

That’s the intro. Black folk can use some comic relief right about now. Especially with all the harassment, racial profiling and homicide of black men at the hands of police. It’s easy to sink into a universal depression. So as silly as it seems, if you allow yourself a momentary escape, “Negrotown” might be a worthy place to go – if you’re too uptight to laugh, that is.

ThisNthat Quickbits: Oops! ‘Price is Right’ Awards Treadmill to Woman in Wheelchair

*As the host of a TV game show, one has to be prepared for just about anything. You never know what a contestant is going to do, say, or even win. So to say the particular prize awarded to this particular contestant was awkward would be an understatement.

After finally securing a spot on stage (even host Drew Carey admitted she was ‘close’ several times), “Price Is Right” contestant Danielle Perez admitted she was so excited after winning a fitness tracker and iPad.

But it started getting a bit awkward when the wheelchair bound contestant had a chance to win a prize that had people in the audience silently cringing: a treadmill.

And oh my, she won it! Continue reading

ThisNthat Quickbits: This News Anchor Just Congratulated a Twin ‘For Being White?’ (Watch)

Yep sir, she said it!
Yep sir, that’s what she said! Hosts Samantha Armytage and David Koch introduce twins Lucy and Maria Aylmer.

*Sometimes I thank my lucky stars that I am no longer on camera. At least not consistently. Because when you’re on camera you feel compelled to talk. And sometimes, you just need to resist the urge.

Take the news anchor in Australia who introduces us to twins in a segment called, “Twins Turning Heads.” We meet fraternal twin sisters; one of which is obviously black, and the other, obviously not.

“Good on her!” the female anchor says following her description of the white sister who got her father’s “fair” complexion. Continue reading

Watch: Shame on This Reporter. Girl Warns She ‘Has to Pee’ on Live TV and She’s Ignored

Reporter Alexis Frazier

*A teen in Greenville, Miss. who was being interviewed by reporter Alexis Frazier on camera about a shooting she had apparently witnessed, warned the reporter that she was going to wet herself. But Frazier ignored her comment, and kept pushing for answers.

Sure enough, seconds later, the girl peed in her pants, right on LIVE TV.

SIDEBAR TO THIS YOUNG GIRL…Baby girl, I’m going to say this right out: I apologize to you for the lack of compassion from this reporter who ignored what you were trying to warn her about. Instead of cutting to the studio or focusing the camera elsewhere, she insisted on getting the details of a story she was working on.

Please know that this was the choice of one individual, and does not reflect those of more seasoned colleagues. –DeBorah B. Pryor Continue reading

Pedophilia, Jail Stint, Marriage, Kids, Now 10 Year Wedding Anniversary: Watch Barbara Walters on 20/20 Tonight!

*The pedophilic affair between teacher Mary Kay Letourneau and her former sixth grade student Vili Fualaau gave the world of media a lot to talk about in 1997 when their affair went public after she became pregnant with his child. It was a scandal heard around the world; and people were disgusted, angry and beside themselves with rage. And seeing the teacher arrested and in her orange jumpsuit did little to calm the rage.

Well, they’re b-a-c-k.

Letourneau was then a 34-year-old woman with four kids, who lived and taught school in Seattle.  Vili had been her 13 year old student when the two participated in the illicit affair for which Mary was arrested and at first, served only six months in prison–under the condition she stay away from the boy and attend sex-offender counseling.

She couldn’t. And her second incarceration lasted seven and a half years.

Upon her release she married Vili (he was 18) and today at 53, to her husband’s 31, the couple who are now parents of two teenage daughters (both born in prison, one conceived before she got there) speaks to Barbara Walters on 20/20 as they celebrate their 10-year wedding anniversary and the journey that brought them to this point.

Needless to say, the “comments” section went cray-cray, with posts seeing this as anything but a fairy tale. Continue reading
