How many of you tuned into the new Basketball Wives LA last Sunday  where we were introduced to Dujuan Blair’s girlfriend/babymam Angel “Love” Davis? Seems Vh1 made way for a very good introduction of Angel Love to the vh1 audience by simply debuting Angel engaging in conversation with her and returning cast member and bestie Angel Brinks.

The conversation was a little confusing as in one breath Angel Love stated how much her and her man loved each other to death and how they have a 1 year old daughter. Then in the next breath she spoke on her and her man having problems and how she needed a break to make him realize how much he would be missing his girls. Hmmmm is this a good idea for the newbie? Girl don’t let them vultures know when there is trouble in paradise. Not even when you are taking a break! Mums the word!

Let’s just hope Ms Angel knows to make sure Mr Blair continues to “cut the check” regardless of break or no break! Don’t quit your day gig as a RN. I can’t wait to see what tricks Tami  Roman and Shaunie O’neil will be up to while on the turn up again.

Germany Shooting!

germ

About an hour ago in Germany there was a reported shooting at a mall called Munich. There are two suspects I believe and they just decided to go on a shooting spree. The suspects killed about 80 people and injured even more.

I honestly do not know what is happening in this world but I do know for a fact that gun control is a serious issue. The fact the these countries didn’t even have guns and things until the United States government started to intervene with foreign affairs without being asked is very concerning.

germ2

All these deathly events keep occurring and it’s so frequent that it becomes a norm for many people to hear. I do not want it to get to the point where we as Americans are numb to tragedies happening in our country and around the world.

 

Our prayers and thoughts are with everyone who was affected directly and indirectly with the shooting that just occurred. All this senseless killing has got to stop but we as a people have to care first, it is the only way.

It’s no secret Chef Mali Hunter has the most infamous #FamousDinners at the legendary Tree Sound Recording Studios. Typically these dinners are private invites for artists who have invested their time & recording energy to perfecting their crafts in one of Tree Sound private studio rooms. The dinners serve as congratulatory salutations to celebrate the artists hard work & let the media and taste makers of Atlanta experience the finished product.

Quincy Jones wanted to make sure his artist Lee England Jr was presented to the world in the best light possible. So its not a surprise that he would tap Mali Hunter on the shoulder to set up an amazing dinner with some pretty amazing people in Atlanta! Lee England Jr not only introduced us to his incredible Soul Orchestra but he brought along a friend, the infamous Ashanti the mad violinist. What an incredible evening!

To top things off Atlanta City Councilman Kwanza Hall showed up (along with his wife Natalie Hall) and made a special announcement. Not only did he present Mali Hunter, Groove Chambers and Paul Diaz and the Tree Sound Recording Studios with a proclamation from the city of Atlanta because of all their philanthropic efforts but Monday July 18th was declared National Tree Sound Recording Studio Day!

Courvoisier cocktails permeated throughout the room. Coronas flowed galore for the beer lovers and of course you can’t eat Mali’s #Famousdinners without topping off your dishes with tastely “Cholula Hot Sauce.” You never know who you are going to see at Chef Mali’s Famous Dinners so it’s best to just be prepared. You may be able to network with people you would never have met anywhere else and the relationships you form at Tree Sound studios could be 100% life changing.

Special thanks to Terri J Vaughn, Angie Stone, Jasmine Guy, Shanti Das, Kwanza Hall, Loraine Smith, Jonell PR, Ed Lover, Paras Griffin, Romello, Daniel Watson the Tree Sound staff and a host of others that always support #ChefMali

At least now we understand another reason why Ceasar Emanuel of vh1 Black Ink Crew baby-mama doesn’t want her daughter hanging out with her baby daddy (besides the fact that he allegedly still owes back child support). First we thought Ceasar baby-mama didn’t want his daughter around his fiance’ Dutchess Lattimore. However, we received a tip from one of Ceasar’s employees that he has no problem having his daughter around known drug abusers and recently spotted Ceasar at Disney World in Orlando, Florida riding rides in the park and having father daughter day with his friend, and convicted sex offender Travis Denard Wright aka @Holyshit407 on IG. Wow! Really?

Wright lists himself as a tattoo artist of Black Ink in NYC and Pretty in Ink in Charlotte  on his Instagram page as well as the tattoo shop he owns in Orlando, Fl. Ceasar’s friend goes by the street name “Trap” real name Travis Denard Wright.

What do you think? Is it cool for Ceasar to have his daughter in the company of his convicted sex offender employees under the circumstances? Or does the fact that he is right there present with her and Travis daughter at Disney World  too make it cool? Where was Dutchess?  Probably working at her own shop “Pretty in Ink” Charlotte or maybe somewhere bickering with Donna & Skye at Black Ink in NYC.

Would you be upset if you were Ceasar’s babymama and saw this picture on instagram? Sound off in the comments… Ceasar you might have some splaining to do (in my Lucy Ricardo voice)…

Bloods and Crips Call It A Truce!

the

The rapper, The Game has been making moves lately in regards to the big headlines and issues we have in the black communities. He was recently at the LA Police Department with Snoop Dogg discussing possible solutions to make sure that everyone is doing their part in being just and fair. And guess what else he did just now?

The Game brought the two biggest black gang bangers around the world to make peace, Bloods and Crips. I know for a fact that the game sees the bigger picture in all of this turmoil.

It will do us no good to march the streets yelling “BLACKLIVESMATTER” after tragedies happen with white and black people but disregard the reckless and careless actions we have toward one another in the black community.

the3

We are only not a force to be reckoned with when we come together and realize that the war is with the ignorant and uneducated people filled with fear and hate. We can not keep killing one another and make it easy for the oppressor.

The only way to win is to think smarter together!
