Will and Jada stirred up enough craziness and confusion with this entanglement mess, they broke camp and headed to the islands for a much needed break. Rumor has it, this resort is kinda like the resort to the stars (Tiger Woods and Justin Timberlake). No need to mention the night rate. It’ll just make you mad.
Empire star Bryshere Grey isn’t having the best 2020 and I’m not too sure this recent incident has anything to do with the coronavirus pandemic. It’s being reported Grey got into a domestic violent altercation with his wife (didn’t know he was married) who called police and later had him arrested. No word on how the altercation got started but his mugshot’s pretty interesting.
Another co-host for The Real calls it quits and I’m not surprised. Tamera Mowry-Housley has decided this will be her last season on the talk show.

Earlier this month, I had the chance to sit down with my good friend and sorority sister, Alexis Johnson of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, who was a topic of many headlines for being barred from covering any Black Lives Matter protests in Pittsburgh after one of her “personal” tweets went viral.
This is our one on one from my IG Live (dated June 9, 2020).
This week, the ladies discuss having “the talk” with your white friends (getting random apologies), rebranding Uncle Bens rice, Aunt Jemima, Cream of Wheat and Mrs. Buttersworth products to make them “less racist”, what is “colorism”? (light skin vs. dark skin), and the meaning of Juneteenth (answering Juneteenth trivia).
