Relieving Haiti & Kanye’s Mic

In Music, News on January 22, 2010 at 6:48 am

Oh my confrontational goodness — Say it ain’t so,
Positive famous folks ain’t letting Kanye talk no mo’.

The controversial artist has been banned from participating in many of the fundraisers for the Haitian earthquake “After what he said on the Katrina telethon and the way he behaved at the MTV Video Music Awards, everyone agrees it’s just best that he does not participate,” said a producer.

While some found his courage and passion admirable, after the Katrina/Bush incident, others found his behavior embarrassing and insulting when he came on to the stage after Taylor Swift. Even President Barack Obama was caught referring to Kanye as a “jackass.”

“Kanye has to make everything about himself. He will do anything to steal the spotlight, and well, this night it’s just not about him,” the producer added. Click here to read entire column…


Kanye’s been deemed “the most outspoken” as a bit of a running joke
post dissing Taylor Swift and saying “George Bush don’t like black folks”.
I too, am outspoken and from time to time you may think I too, need a leash–
But when it comes to raising money for Haiti – can we afford to omit ‘Kanye – the beast’?

John Edwards didn’t need MAURY

In Politics, TV Shows on January 22, 2010 at 5:17 am

So the truth is out:: “DNA test proves what Reille Hunter has claimed all along, that John Edwards is the father of 18-month old baby Frances”.

Those headlines broke in August of 2009 yet here we are at January 2010 and John Edwards finally comes clean. I am not impressed that he would lie and stress Elizabeth and his family out like that. Thank God he didn’t win the Democratic Presidential Nomination with that kind of baggage in tow.


Old News is rarely exciting and would have certainly made us all look bad
if John Edwards had won the Presidential seat before DNA proved: He is the dad!

It’s how the child was publicly dissed by him on television in the past
That makes the pride of ones birth feel pretty shallow & sad.
Perhaps the light of truth will heal wounds and time will make all fair
For instance little baby Frances could end up with dads great hair. lol! 🙂

Reconciling with THE VIEW

In TV Shows on January 22, 2010 at 4:34 am

The View and I fell on “the outs” when Star Jones was ousted from the show. Remember that? They mutually severed their ties when Star refused to be the poster child for lap band surgery, (or whatever proceedure she put her body through) that resulted in her losing over 100 pounds and successfully keeping it off. She looks great, but Barbara Walters & The View looked real bad @ Stars departure. Thank goodness that fiasco has since blown over, because after nix’ing Star, they brought in Sherri Shepherd and Whoopi Goldberg and well…The View is beginning to feel relatable again.

I’m a black woman & it feels good to “relate” when I turn my television on. Oprah’s leaving daytime talk television next September @ her 25th Season, it’s already got me wondering how long will Sherri & Whoopi accompany my a.m. televison veiw? Tables often turn fast, so who knows — but I plan on supporting the show until such time.

Thanks to Whoopi & Sherri’s real presence at the round table and their understood GF relationships with Barbara Walters, I have been able to get passed the bitter taste (non trust issue) that I had with the producers for cornering Star Jones’ personal success & ultimately not extending her contract. It was business, but for many of us who support and watched the show daily, it felt personal. I’m glad we could reconcile our differences. After all losing one star and replacing it with 2 more is a WIN-WIN situation in my book. Thus, I’m once again ‘enjoying THE VIEW’.

Cuz’n O has got to go

In TV Shows on January 22, 2010 at 4:09 am

It’s been a long time common & we knew change was gonna’ come. After all, how long did we expect Oprah to hold our hands and talk us through it? She’s been the queen of daytime talk television since the mid eighties invoking a common ground among most ladies. I should know, I am one whose life has forever been changed since Oprah Winfrey hit the scene in 1985. I was a freshman in highschool and thanks to her, I had limitless aspirations. In fact after 24 years of socializing with Oprah, I still positively aspire with no limits whatsoever. Her presence is positively empowering. After raising me and my 2 daughters it’s only right she be able to call it quits. Right? No one wants to see her go, but she gave her word: Her 25th Anniversary (September 2011) will conclude the reign of show.


No one wants to see her go – especially me.
She’s a mainstay on my residential flat screen tv.
There’s so many lessons I’ve learned from her
I wear Oprah Knowledge like a rich girl wears fur–
Even PETA likes her. O has long been a heaven sent
She was an early force behind many considering Barack for President.
Oh my – look how fast time has flown and been informatively spent.
Good Knowledge has been passed down to help us out with future rent.
After September 2011- she may be out of sight, but never out of mind
You can always catch the essence of her OXYGEN Channel anytime.
