While I’d completely concur that it’s LONG overdue, it’s not really a new day. Female images have been around, especially on television, for quite some time. When I was a kid, The Bionic Woman, Charlie’s Angels, and Wonder Woman herself were kicking butt and taking names on weekly episodic TV. In many cases, they out-thought and out-fought their male counterparts. (Who can forget Jaime Summers beating Bigfoot after Steve Austin almost got killed by him??). Continue reading →
*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.
*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.
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 →
*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.”
*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.Continue reading →
*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.
