Secrets & Lies S2 E7: The statement

melanie-and-patrick-2I got a list of shows that I cannot stop watching even though I’m crazy busy and Secrets and Lies are one of them. Eric Warner is on this quest to finding the killer of his wife or finding a scapegoat that’s if you believe he is the killer. Right now the main suspect is Melanie. To be honest, the first time I saw her I thought she was the skanky girlfriend ready to shake some money off the young and self-destructive Warner kid, Patrick. Turns out she is a wife ! Nobody in the family likes her and daddy Warren made sure she signed a prenup.Sucks that she has to be judged because of her looks but she does give you the impression that she’s a prostitute…


patrick-feeling-rejectedWhen we heard of Neil being involved with an escort all of a sudden the wheels in my head started to turn. What if Melanie is the head of an escort agency ? Then we have her erasing footage of the night Kate died hmm.  Plus this million dollar scam, it just seemed too smart or too stupid for a guy like Patrick who I’ve come to see as a follower whose never been able to do anything on his own. He carries the name of a successful man but he just ain’t one. Apparently, he got into this shady business all on his own. He wanted to prove himself but at every turn he’d get a no from his father. Sadly, his ideas were never good enough. A growing jealousy since childhood brought him to make a stupid decision that could very well destroy the company. Patrick had no choice to come clean. He admitted everything to his brother and his excuse for his poor judgement is that he never had a chance cause all is given to the golden child and that would be Eric. The older brother responded that everything he had he worked for it and as for his luck well he got sent to Juvie when he was a teenager, his wife died and he has to deal with his baby brother screwing up. I think Eric doesn’t acknowledge the privileges he gets and how it can make Patrick feel like he’s unwanted and uncapable of anything. Can’t those bros help each other out ?

Secrets and Lies s2  ep7.png

As of now there’s no trust between them. Eric even doubts of his father who has a secret cellphone. A cancer center facility number popped up but the daddy denies that he has cancer. Oh and he even said that the cellphone ain’t his. Lies he tells because Eric went to see Mae the secretary to subtily confirm if his dad gave her a cellphone to trace but she didn’t know nothing about a phone being lost and found. This episode the patriarch made me question him. Not only he lied but we found out a little bit of the back story. This man left his children with their drunk and abusive mother. He loved that woman so much but was oblivious to what was going on at home. Maybe he actually knew and that’s why he chose to be an absentee dad. He can always hide by saying I didn’t know, I was working when in fact he was escaping his reality. As soon as Eric received a visit from his father who came back from a “business trip”, he did not hesitate to throw this in his face. Eric blames him for the way Patrick is, he actually said he saw many similiraties between Patrick and their parents. The baby brother flees reality like his daddy and drinks his life away like his mommy.

melanie-flirts-with-detectiveThis is where Melanie gets her power, she sees the cracks in this family and exploits it. Many times looks can be deceiving but Melanie is exactly what she looks like. Sometimes it walks like a duck because it is a duck.  Melanies gets brought to the interrogation room and all she tries to do is flirt with the detective. Whenever she gets in a fight with Eric, she always mentions the distance between the family and Eric and how it can only grow to be an ocean. This woman is sneaky but she should watch out cause her whorehouse might i’ve employed Carly the cop’s daughter. That man doesn’t play when it comes to his child. He did go in a house full of bodyguards , prostitutes and their clients just for his little girl. Plus he didn’t have a gun coming in but he managed kicking a couple of people’s asses with his bare hands. It was  superhero-ish to me. When he got his hands on a gun, he was scary to say the least. Now he is blackmailing a fellow cop who enjoys the services of prostitutes. Funny enough that Cornell was not the one who helped get that address, It was Eric who insists to be a part of this messed up situation. I completely understand why he’d want to help a father find his kid but he already has so much going on and the wrong move can bring him back to prison since he does have a past.

amanda-and-neil-get-it-onI love Amanda but she is a hot mess. Being a career woman is not all she is even though it appeared to be in the beginning.She desperately wants children and has been ready to do everything to make her dream come true. Unfortunately, this desperation killed her marriage. She went through many fertility treatments only to end up with failure. She’s going through a secret divorce ( not so secret anymore) and having good sex with her brother’s friend and business associate Neil. She doesn’t love him but he does. Waiting for those two to meet again. There was a minute, I thought Amanda could be the killer. She has tried to have a child and there was pregnant Kate who had abandonned her first-born. Jealousy is motive. Amanda is the brain of this family. The night Kate died, she quickly put away her feelings and wore her lawyer hat. Amanda knows how the system works therefore she knows how to manipulate it in her favor. But at the same time, I understand why she was so protective of her brother especially when they had relentless Cornell on the case.

cornell-cries-for-daughterIn season 2,we are seeing a deeper side of Cornell. She’s a divorcee who is living with the scars of watching her partner die before her eyes.Now she has this daughter who is fighting for her sobriety but always ends up failing. It pains Cornell to not be able to help her daughter, Jennifer. Who would’ve known this cold woman actually had a heart? Seeing her sick and worried waiting for her little girl made her seem a bit more human. Last episode her ex-husband was shrinking her and in this one it was her turn to shrink him. She told him nothing was his fault each and everyone of them played a part when it comes to Jennifer’s troubles. The breath of relief she took when she  received a call from her daughter saying she’s in rehab and the scene in the visit room got me teary eyed. Cornell did not put her child in prison because she needed to follow the law, she did it because she truly thought these bars would save her daughter’s life. Hearing Andrea Cornell the criminal chaser say “” I’d rather have you hate me then lose you.” got me to put a hand on my chest. It was truly touching. My only problem is… it’s harder to hate her now! Jeez.


Blac Chyna VS Wendy Williams

You gotta be living under a rock if you didn’t know that Blac Chyna read Wendy Williams her rights. As you may know Wendy shared her opinions on Rob and Blac Chyna’s relationship. Let’s just say  Chyna didn’t like this too much. What’s surprising is that she didn’t call the host Wendell like many do. If you wanna know what she said check below!


B&B:11/4/16 Baby machine takes a break!


Who’s the loser in this baby machine miracle part 2 ? Sasha of course. How you’re gonna be on a plane with a dude whose on the phone with your sister and saying” I love you. I never met anyone like you”?! He’s saying all of this while you are present. She cannot ever say she didn’t know she was number 2. What’s crazy is that she got burned by him once and here she is again trying to wake up what’s in his pants so he can fall in love with her. Two weeks ago she was in need of Thomas’ icecream litteraly and figuratively. I wished she fought for “gorgeously” handsome Thomas instead of fighting for shorty who can only weep for Raya’s baby machine.

Nicole and Maya excited for baby 2.pngI think you have all realized I barely say Nicole’s name when I make a video. I usually refer to her as the baby machine because that’s all she is. I’ve been upset with the fact that her selfish sister had the audacity to ask to rent her womb AGAIN. Mind you Lizzie is not even a one year old ! Not long ago Rick was crying about his daddy possibly dying and now he is requesting a baby from his child looking sister-in-law. I still call Maya and Rick selfish because Nicole should’ve never had to carry Lizzie. Asking for another “miracle “so soon shows how they do not think of this young girl who only wants her sister’s happiness.They can keep on saying no pressure but it’s still is because Nicole values the bond she has with Maya. It seems she’s ready to do anything for an older sister who has yet made any sacrifice for her…

nicole-says-no-to-baby-2Luckily Nicole found the light and said no to Maya but it might just be too late. I’m very upset with the fact that Zende had to tell her a sob story for her to understand she was making a mistake. On what planet do you tell your partner you’re having his uncle’s baby and he gets no say in this…Y’all are just gonna make it through…?! What was the most disturbing thing is Nicole’s reasons for wanting to be a surrogate again. It seems like she wants to please Maya and she wants to give a sibbling to Lizzie. It only feels right if it comes through her body. What’s going on with that little girl’s mind? She needs a therapist. No one wants to go through child birth for free. Seriously, Nicole ain’t getting a car or a foot massage for all of this trouble. Rick probably wished Aly the maid/niece was still alive to serve the Avant sisters. Sorry but Raya can act as sweet as they want but they still do not get a pass in my book.

zende-and-sasha-in-hawaiNow on to drunk  Zende thinking it’s okay to fly with his girlfriend’s sister to Hawai. This boy is just unbelievable. But I have to say I didn’t know he had money like that. He seemed to me like a Forrester on paper but when it comes to the bank account it’s pretty empty. Looks like our boy got it like that. Even though I think hanging out alone with your ex-booty call is wrong ,I did understand why  he decided to fly away with this thirsty chick. Nicole did dismiss his feelings and Sasha is a warm body ready to be used. If the woman he loved  so much couldn’t careless about his feelings why should he care about hers? I guess I feel like he should’ve taken the time to properly break-up with her before leaving with Sasha.

zende-gives-nicole-ultimatumI did appreciate him being a man about the situation and telling Nicole if she was going through this again then they are done. I would’ve enjoyed Nicole’s response which was “gotta go ”  had I felt she was right. As said previously, it seems like she feels responsible to carry children for Maya. It might be heartless but Zende should break up with Nicole even though she’s decided to not be a surrogate. Let’s be honest 3 years later they could have the same issue. I also believe Nicole shouldn’t want to be with Zende anymore. There’s no way she should stay with a man who thinks it’s okay to use her sister as her replacement.

What do you guys think ?



Bold and Beautiful: Old Quinn is Back

Before there was a Quinn Forrester, there was a Quinn Fuller. People tend to forgive or forget her past. As of now she warms you up with her devotion for Eric. Those water works definetely make us feel bad for her. Especially when we got the Forresters treating her like trash when they KNOW she’s the powerful one. Let’s not get blinded by Quinn’s newfound heart though. She’s in love with Eric, she takes care of him and she wants the best for him. Fine. But has she truly changed ?

Ain’t this the most important question ?! Has she changed ? She’s doing a good job of showing that she did. But if Eric dies or it doesn’t work out with her and Eric, would it be unbelievable if she went back to her old ways ? This woman has had over 30 years of bad behavior. Wyatt has even said: “you owe me my childhood”. Which is a very strong statement coming from an only child who loves his mother. She has done so much on screen already , can you imagine what she has done off-screen? Most of her adult life, Quinn has stolen, killed or attempted to kill someone to get what she wants.

All of sudden comes Deacon Sharpe, she calms down. No one really bought it but she seemed to not want to cause trouble. Without warning it’s over between her and Deacon.  Then came this opportunity  to kidnapp Liam and possibly take him out without anyone knowing. Surprisingly, Liam turned into Adam brought a different side to Quinn. We had a piece of her childhood. She never had the chance to grow up in a loving home. Both parents wanted to get rid of her. A prostitute as a mother and an asshole as a father, she never understood love. This Adam she created loved her , she became better but she did have to kill her ex-husband to leave no proof behind. This act made sure we could only see her as a delusionnal individual. She looked at Liam…Adam with so much love. She took care of him but she was stripping him of his identity. Not once did she think of letting him go. Not once did she think of the man she has loved and killed, her ex-husband. She killed him and not ONE thought about him. Shocked she was when he opened the door to the closet she was trapped in. Did she bother to apologize ? Yeah but she didn’t mean a single word. It was more like ”Don’t take it  to heart , you are alive so no issue”kind of apology. Effortless to kill. Effortless to lie.  She chased Liam, begged him to be with her and once she realized there was no chance of that happening she put all of her attention back to her son.

Six months later came Eric. No one saw that one coming. How did that whole love affair started ? Hard to know since it all happened off-screen. Some believe from A to Z it was genuine but no one should take Quinn or Eric’s word for it. One is easily manipulated, the other lies so much she starts to believe her own lies are the truth. Should the Forresters be worried about the patriach of their family ? Absolutely. They are all connected to Eric. If he makes a bad business decision, the whole family suffers. We are talking millions of dollars, a family business and multiple properties here. As much as we want to believe marriage is all about love it is also a contract. So much is at stake.Quinn is not a regular woman, there’s no way to know what she’ll do next. You might have not noticed it but she has been C.E.O of Forrester Creations. She’s the one who put Eric on that C.E.O seat. Honestly, Eric didn’t know if he wanted the position til Quinn planted that idea. For the longest time, he wanted to rest, travel and see the world with his brother. He is back at FC and there’s nothing wrong with that. The issue is Quinn was there to give him a little push. Then this woman got herself a job. How Eric being C.E.O could benefit Quinn ? Right after he gets his position back, his first decision is to revive a whole departement ( jewlery) and hire Quinn to run it… A woman everybody hates…A woman that brings conflict…Having a new woman to have sex with and share the joy of life with does not mean you bring her to your place of business. Then Ivy Forrester comes back and instead of going to see the C.E.O for a job, she went to see the girlfriend…Which means Ivy understood Uncle Eric would be heavily influenced by his new poom-poom.

Not convinced yet ? Name one thing Eric did that had NOTHING to do with Quinn. Just one decision that he has made. This woman can divide the Forresters.. Right now it’s Eric and Quinn against the world but at some point the kids will start disagreeing with one another. This is when she picks sides and pits a child or grandchild against a family member. There’s so many ways Quinn could use this whole thing in her advantage. Eric has never been  a strong man many have called him weak and pathetic. He married Sheila Carter, Brooke Logan, Stephanie Forrester and many more. What do these woman have in common ? They wanted something, they came after it ferociously and they took it without apologies. They are all strong women and Eric has been played by all of them. Quinn might just do the same because it is just that easy.

Bold and Beautiful: Steffy blackmails Wyatt


Oh this  boy doesn’t know it yet  but finding out this little piece of information will help him keep his “loving wife” longer.  Wyatt overheard Ridge and Steffy’s conversation with Carter. He quickly understood that his mother had the power of attorney but the Forresters were trying to keep it a secret. Furioused he confronted Steffy and for once he was not backing down. This time Steffy find herself in the begging position. But miss Steffy knows she still has a little bit of power. Wyatt is desperate to keep her !!! That’s why she keeps on saying your loyalty is to your wife. This is what’s best for our relationship. It keeps me here.

steffy-manipulates-wyatt-2Here’s what’s going to happen. Steffy will get what she wants. She’ll say to her husband you tell your mother about the POA and we are done. Relieved, Steffy will stay with her second choice only to realize the love of her life is moving on !!! She’ll  want Liam back more than ever. This time she truly won’t be able to leave Wyatt without real consequences. No Money. No Power. If Eric plays sleeping beauty for months then this is a longtime to be at Quinn’s mercy. And we know old Quinn wants to come out to play. As much as Steffy is in control,emotionnaly blackmailing her husband means he can turn around and do the same. She’s blackmailing HERSELF.

ivy-wants-liam-backSteffy is making it seem like her only issue is Quinn’s presence. If it wasn’t for Quinn she’d be happily married. This is soooo laughable cause this is a lie.  She is in love with Liam that’s it. Clearly this is a double edge sword. This arrangement will keep Steffy trapped in this marriage she “secretly” wants out of.  She will be forced to watch Liam be aggressively pursued by Ivy. The Aussie girl is making moves after moves so she can erase Steffy and take her place. This will sting. Because Liam cannot resist a woman for long. Control she has but once Wyatt gets fed up of being the begging one, while his wife gets teary-eyed over his brother oh boy, control he has. There’s a thing or two he won’t tolerate. He might say my mother gets to see Eric as much as she wants or Ridge better talk  to my mommy the right way cause if not…

Oh this whole family is gonna sweat buckets and we want to watch.



Bold and Beautiful: Carter’s Bad Judgement Call


What the hell was Carter thinking ? Ending is career because Ridge said so…He knows that what he’s doing is illegal and unethical.  Hiding, changing this power of attorney in favor of Ridge could blow up in his face. Quinn has the power of attorney and that is it. There’s no reason to falsify documents and possibly go to prison for fraud, just to please some people who could give a shit about you AND your career. He’s litteraly letting himself get manipulated by his Boss’ son. Let’s be real his boss is the current C.E.O  not the C.E.O’s son. Risking it all just for an ambitious man and a controlling woman can only mean he’ll be left out in the cold. He is the one who could lose it all ! His job, his license, his whole career.Quinn is good at the manipulating games but baby Ridge is good TOO!!!! He is raising his voice and appealing to Carter’s emotions.  Ridge is selling this horrible idea by saying: “You owe it to my dad, he’s always been there for you.” Hmmm what is he talking about ? What did Eric do for Carter except for giving him a job ? It could’nt have been something that big since Carter has never been a main character with a good storyline. Which means Eric could’ve never done anything that would make him feel like he should sacrifice his career for this family.

carters-mouth-openOne thing Carter has not thought about is he is NOT a Forrester. He does not have the ressources this family has. He does not have the money, the reputation or the name. Wide open his mouth will be when they  leave him in this smelling poop. Ridge and Steffy will  save their own booties before his.  They will not show him any kind of loyalty. Ridge might remember that he was his good friend and throw him a couple of thousands but he won’t do that forever. Eric made a decision it might’ve been a bad one but they have to rectify it legally.  if everything goes to hell  it’s not his fault but Eric’s. Carter is there to do what he is told that’s it. There’s no reason for him to get involve in that mess. Why did he decide to open the enveloppe when on the post-it it was written RIDGE FORRESTER? He could’ve simply given it to Ridge without reading the content of the enveloppe and this wouldn’t have been his problem. It’s not like Ridge shares his secrets with people…

carter-frownsBut there’s a loophole. Eric never gave those documents to Carter. There’s no way to know if Eric was the one who filled in those forms. Plus, he never expressed the desire of putting Quinn as his POA. As a matter of fact, the whole reason it was important to name a POA was to protect the company and other properties from Quinn.

If Carter is to exit the show it is a good way to do it. He loses his job, his license  sheds a tear and then bye bye…


Brangelina NASTY Divorce

Brangelina passion.jpg

Oh Jennifer Aniston is sitting with a hot cup of tea, sipping it slow with a chuckle. On the background Beyonce saying: Ashes to ashes, dust to side chicks. What is going on ? While Jennifer Aniston is happily married her ex-cheating ass husband got blindsided the worst way.

brangelina-divorceAngelina Jolie slammed Brad Pitt with divorce papers. Everybody is trying to figure out why it’s happening NOW. TMZ has reported that it’s all about the kids. Jolie doesn’t like the way her husband disciplines them. Does he hit them ?! Some say no he just yells at them. Weird, every parent has yelled at their kids. It’s  not uncommon  AND there’s six Jolie-Pitt kids in that household ! Is it so hard to imagine that one would raise their voice?!!!  So is that really the reason for their divorce ? There’s been cheating allegations though…He was rumored to have a little something with Marion Cotillard but apparently there’s no truth to this. Hmmm…

angelina-scorned-and-jealousAnyone who thinks this divorce is surprising need to have his memory refreshed. In an interview Brad admitted he needed to be a better man for his wife. For a longtime there were articles saying Angie was very jealous and would have a tantrum every time Brad would work with young beautiful co-stars. Perhaps Brad failed to make his woman secure. It’s very understandble why she’d feel threatened since we know how Brangelina started…


brad-pittThen there was Angelina  health’s scare. She was very afraid she’d have breast cancer due to the fact her mother and grand-mother died of ovarian cancer. She was so afraid that she decided to get a preventive masectomy. Maybe Brad felt as if she was being obsessed ? Even if she had a higher risk of having this cancer it didn’t mean she would have it. Why not deal with it if it happens, why panick when you’re healthy ? It probably was a trying time for them. Over the years, Angelina’s body has been under scrutiny. She appeared to be “unhealthy skinny”. Was she under too much stress ? Was she too worried about cancer ? Or was it because she wanted to preserve her Hollywood Body ?

angelina-knifeAngelina chose the right time to stuck the knife into Brad Pitt’s gut. Mr. Pitt got movies to promote which means he will try to be PR perfect when it’s time to issue a statement. If he wanted to trash Angie, he can’t do it now. Maybe he could…Bad publicity is still publicity. But he wants people to go watch the movies and his divorce might be a factor when it comes to the movies making money or not. People still view Jennifer Aniston as the poor victim and Angie the world’s savior and now she’s trying to put out this image of a woman who only wants to protect her children. Apparently, she does not want any attention at all. She asks the public to give her privacy which is quite funny. Angie filed the divorce papers AFTER the Emmy’s. If she truly wanted the news of her divorce to come and go she would’ve done it BEFORE the Emmy’s.  The media would’ve talked about Brangelina for a couple days til it’s time to cover the award show. Filing after the Emmy’s is asking for attention since the media is now looking for the next big news. Jolie’s camp was very calculated if in fact they waited for that particular time to file.

angelina-woman-scornedCould have her team planted the idea that Brad Pitt was drinking too much and his parenting style needed to be questionned ? Angelina Jolie is asking for sole custody here, the claws are out. Is she protecting her kids or just being a woman scorned ?

brangelina-fightPitt is gonna want to put this behind him quickly because as explained he has projects to think about. Jolie is counting on that. She wants to keep the jewelries, the gifts, her money and the kids! Jeez she wants EVERYTHING. Hard to believe Pitt would give up on his children especially the ones he fathered.This is about to get ugly real fast.

brangelina-movieSomething else to sip on : Anyone remembers the movie Brangelina made together?  Don’t you guys think this could be a depiction of what their relationship was like? Passionate, mind consumming just dysfunctionnal .Food for thought. It wouldn’t be fair to end this Brangelina Divorce article without letting Jennifer Aniston’s spirit speak. Wink.

Solanges Knowles touches our hearts


And Do You Belong? I Do

The tone.

It’s the same one that says to your friend, “BOY…. go on over there and hand me my bag” at the airport, assuming he’s a porter.

It’s the same one that tells you, “m’am, go into that other line over there” when you are checking in at the airport at the first class counter before you even open up your mouth.

It’s the same one that yells and screams at you and your mother in your sleep when you’re on the train from Milan to Basel “give me your passport NOW.” You look around to see if anyone else is being requested this same thing only to see a kind Italian woman actually confront the agents on your behalf and ask why you are being treated this way.

It’s the same tone that the officer has when she tells you your neighborhood is blocked for residents only as you and your friends drive home from a Mardi Gras parade, when you have a residents tag on your car. You’ve been in the car line for 10 minutes and watched them let every one else pass without stopping them at all.

It usually does not include “please.” It does not include “will you.” It does not include “would you mind,” for you must not even be worth wasting their mouths forming these respectable words. Although, you usually see them used seconds before or after you.

You don’t feel that most of the people in these incidents do not like black people, but simply are a product of their white supremacy and are exercising it on you without caution, care, or thought.

Many times the tone just simply says, “I do not feel you belong here.”


Telling your son and his friend Rasheed about a band you love and one that played a pivotal role in the history of hip-hop. Something that as a family you all feel very connected to.

Imagine, although the kids are interested, they are still 11, unfamiliar, and would rather be spending their Friday night differently. You and your husband are always talking to your son about expansion and being open to other things and experiences, so you guys make the Kraftwerk concert a family Friday night.

You get there about 10 minutes late, but lucky for you, as soon as you walk to your box seats, the song that you just played for your son in the car is on! It’s a song his uncle sampled, ” The Hall of Mirrors.” You haven’t even sat down yet because you just walked to your seat and you’re so excited to dance to this DANCE MUSIC SONG.

Simultaneously, a much older black venue attendant comes over to your son and his friend and yells “No electronic cigarettes allowed, you need to stop doing that now!”

You are too into the groove and let your husband handle it and tell the attendant that the children are 11 years old, and it’s actually the two grown white men in front of you guys who were smoking them.

You are annoyed and feel it’s extremely problematic that someone would challenge their innocence, but determined to stay positive and your husband has handled this accordingly.

About 20 seconds later, you hear women yell aggressively, “Sit down now, you need to sit down right now” from the box behind you. You want to be considerate, however, they were not at all considerate with their tone, their choice of words, or the fact that you just walked in and seem to be enjoying yourself.

You are also confused as to what show you went to. This is a band that were pioneers of electronic and dance music. Surely the audience is going to expect you to dance at some point.

You were planning on sitting down after this song, as long as it wasn’t one of the four songs that you really connect with and plan on getting down to.

You feel something heavy hit you on the back of your shoulder, but consider that you are imagining things because well….certainly a stranger would not have the audacity.

Moments later, you feel something again, this time smaller, less heavy, and your son and his friend tell you those ladies just hit you with a lime.

You look down only to see the half eaten lime on the ground below you.

You inhale deeply. Your husband calmly asks the group of women did they just throw trash at you. One woman says, “I just want to make it clear, I was not the one who yelled those horrible, nasty, things at you.”

Loud enough for you to hear.

This leads you to believe they were saying things way worse than what you heard, but you are not surprised at that part one bit.

You’re full of passion and shock, so you share this story on Twitter, hands shaking, because you actually want these women to face accountability in some kind of way. You know that you cannot speak to them with out it escalating because they have no respect for you or your son, and this will only end badly for you and feel it’s not worth getting the police involved. So, you are hoping they will hear you this way.

You know when you share this that a part of the population is going to side with the women who threw trash at you. You know that they will come up with every excuse to remove that huge part of the incident and make this about you standing up at a concert “blocking someone’s view.”

You know that a lot of the media will not even mention the trash being thrown at you with your 11 year old son being present.

You feel that the headline would be “XYZ Goes To A Concert And Gets Trash Thrown At Them,” if it were some of your other non-black peers in the industry.

You constantly see the media having a hard time contextualizing black women and men as victims every day, even when it means losing their own lives.

You do not care in that moment because you understand that many of your followers will understand and have been through this same type of thing many a times, and if it means them hearing you say it’s ok, you will rise again through out these moments, then it means something bigger to you.

You realize that you never called these women racists, but people will continuously put those words in your mouth.

What you did indeed say is, “This is why many black people are uncomfortable being in predominately white spaces,” and you still stand true to that.

You and your friends have been called the N word, been approached as prostitutes, and have had your hair touched in a predominately white bar just around the corner from the same venue.

The statement you made makes headlines funny enough just days after it comes to light that Air China warns their flyers not to go into Indian, Pakastani, or Black neighborhoods in order to stay safe, while Texas schools are fighting to have textbooks calling Mexicans “lazy” removed from classrooms, and while Native Americans are doing everything they can possibly to to protect their sacred land from an oil pipeline being built on graves of their descendants. You know that people of colors’ “spaces” are attacked every single day, but many will not be able to see it that way.

This also comes during a time when the Housing Authority of New Orleans has declared a federal mandate plan to assist with helping to protect black neighborhoods, stating that “previously black neighborhoods on higher ground are now majority white or moving in that direction.” And not too long after an announcement is made that a former Klu Klux Klan leader is running for Louisiana senator. You also know where you live.

You are also fully aware, now that you use your platform consistently to speak out on social, racial, and feminist issues, that people who have no awareness of your work outside of gossip sites and magazines, some of which who are most likely voting for Donald Trump, have been starting to engage and/or target you in public and social media in regards to race.

(And yes, having white people constantly call you the n word, or say you and your people are degenerates that need to leave America, or zoo like animals, surely does not help you feel more comfortable in predominately white spaces)

You’d like to use the classic “I have many white friends” or “Half of my wedding guest were white” line to prove that you do not dislike white people but dislike the way that many white people are constantly making you feel. To combat headlines like “Solange feels uncomfortable with white people” but know that there is no amount of explaining that you will do to get through to this type of person in the first place.

You have lived a part of your life in predominately white spaces since you were a kid, had your 3rd grade teacher tell you “what a nigger is” in front of your whole entire white class, and had your own parents come up to the school to try to explain why that was wrong, only to not ever get your point across again and again.

After you think it all over, you know that the biggest payback you could ever had (after, go figure, they then decided they wanted to stand up and dance to songs they liked) was dancing right in front of them with my hair swinging from left to right, my beautiful black son and husband, and our dear friend Rasheed jamming the hell out with the rhythm our ancestors blessed upon us saying….

We belong. We belong. We belong. 

We built this.

Young and Restless: New Adam Newman

Well Justin Hartley A.K.A Adam Newman is out. This is not really a surprise since we knew about his other projects. Under his letter of good-bye he had the video of his new tv serie This is Us. We are not mad about his shameless promoting self.

Adam aka Justin exit letter

Now we need a new Adam A.S.A.P. Some think Michael Mulney could come back and save the day but they are forgetting how Mulney left the show…He was FIRED for allegdly grabbing Hunter King aka Summer Newman’s boobies. When he left, it didn’t seem like anybody from the cast really cared. Apparently, things were tensed between Eric Braden and him.  Mulney implied there was behind the scenes politics and he doesn’t really play those kind of games.  Hunter King is still on the show and Mulney probably won’t play by the rules so it’s fair to assume no one wants him back. The first Adam Newman, Chris Egen was good but he had issues with playing such a villainous character. Egen was accused of being homophobic because his issues with the role came right when Adam was pretending to be gay in order to avoid punishment. Well, he is not coming back. Some believe, Aiden Turner will be the next Adam. Rumors has it, they are looking for an actor to play this new character Dean and it could be a smoke screen. Y&R is looking for this new Adam Newman and in case they don’t find him, he’ll stay dead a while longer.
