The Hey Girl Hey Podcast (May 2, 2020) VIDEO/AUDIO

This week, LaShawn, Gerri, and Ki Ki are joined by two powerful women in the media and medicine, Kimberly Callaway and Paige Mitchell. The ladies discuss black hair vs COVID 19 (the struggle is real), how a woman is looking for a new man while her current man fights for his life in the hospital (IT WAS NOT DETERMINED IF HE HAS THE CORONAVIRUS) and why #Karen is so upset.

Segment One: Embracing your natural hair (not by choice but by COVID 19) and does Diddy speak for all of us?

Segment Two:

A woman tells radio personality, Kendra G that she’s looking for another man to step in when/if her man passes away. He’s currently in the hospital where she is unable to visit and unsure of the status. Is she wrong?

And who is “Karen”? We discuss the term mostly used by black women to described priviledged white women when they act “out of pocket”.

Segment Three:

We discuss the recent episode of HBO’s hit series Insecure where Jay Ellis’ character (Lawrence) slides through his ex-girlfriend Issa’s DM. Has your ex ever tried to shoot his shot knowing you’re happily attached?

Segment Four:

In this final segment, we talk to our guests Kimberly Callaway who is a certified physicians assistant in Washington, DC who also practiced Internal Medicine and currently plastic surgery.

Paige Mitchell is a freelance journalist, PR exec and currently the Founder/CEO of Front Paige News magazine.

Both women share their struggle during the pandemic and how they’re coping.

This Radio Chick Rocks with Paige Mitchell [VIDEO]

Paige Mitchell, Founder/CEO, Front Paige News

I can’t remember the first time I met Paige Mitchell. Actually, I have no memory on our first encounter and that’s ok.

From whenever that first day was that I met this young lady, every time has always been warm, welcoming, and sisterly. I tell her all the time (at least I think I do) that if I were ever to consider comedy, she would definitley have to be in the audience because she laughs at my jokes. (yes, even the corny ones. She’s a keeper)

Paige is a media chick’s media chick! She embraces every inch of the word and works hard in this male-dominated, ever-changing, overly and social-media saturated industry. One minitue, she’s sitting right next to you at a movie premiere in Pittsburgh and the next day, you find her on Instagram posting video from a red carpet event in New York!

That’s what she does! She’s everywhere! And she never complains about it! Now that I think about it, I don’t think I’ve ever seen Paige upset or heard her complain about anything. She has the most positive attitute and the biggest heart! She’s super cool.

She’s a freelance writer, marketing and promotions exec, PR agent and now the founder and CEO of her own entertainment magazine, Front Paige News.

Paige joined The Hey Girl Hey Podcast this week to talk about how the recent pandemic of the COVID19 crisis changed her entire world. From traveling, booking events for clients and the future of her entertainment magazine.

I wanted to know more so I asked her to join me for a sit down on ThisRadioChickRocks and she graciously agreed.

Word On The Curb Is…Kim K Has Had It With Kanye [AUDIO]

Time to sip this HOT TEA, sis!

Word on the curb is rapper Eminem found himself in a dangerous situation when an intruder broke into his Detroit home. He didn’t steal anything. Em wasn’t too alarmed but he was a little pissed when he was the one who found the guy and not his security. I’m sure they’ll be a mandatory Zoom meeting about this in the future. (SOURCE)

The internet had to push RESET when Megan The Stallion released her new “Savage” remix that included a special bar-drop by the Queen Bee (Beyonce) herself! The new single hit all online streaming services and it didn’t take long for everyone to jump on and share their true feelings about the remix! (oh, it’s a smash! Definitely). No surprise here! Bey did say “I sneeze on the beat and the beat got sickah!” She wasn’t lying! Plus, this marked an emotional occasion for the Houston rapper who just last year, lost her mother to brain cancer. She shared on her IG live that her mom was a Bey fan too and they would listen to Beyonce’s music. When she met Beyonce for the first time, she was super excited. You can see her reaction here. Click this link for more.

Finally, and I figured this was coming, Kim Kardashian-West is getting a little tired of being the only one parenting her children that she shares with mega star rapper-turned pastor-turned artist-turned, who knows this week, Kanye West. She shared on social media that she’s been the one who has to handle the kids when he’s busy “creating” and she’s getting a little tired of it. Has she reached her limit like the rest of us? We shall see. (SOURCE)

ThisRadioChickRocks w/ Michele Newell, News Reporter for WPXI-Pittsburgh [VIDEO]

We text back and forth from time to time and it’s been that way for a good year and some change. I met Michele Newell, news reporter for Pittsburgh news station, WPXI (Cox Communications) when she stopped by the WAMO 100 studios to interview me about my brother who was then incarcerated and had been reportedly ill from a K-2 incident that happened at SCI Greene Correctional facility.

Since then, we’ve grown close and I’ve admired her tenacity and rockstar work ethic! She’s always working! She’s covering the hard news on violent crimes, fires and recently (and more consistantly) the coronavirus.

News reporter, Michele Newell-WPXI TV

I wanted to check in with her to see how she’s holding up and ask her if this pandemic effects her as it does the rest of us. I was also eager to know what she misses the most during this “time out”, if all this is overwhelming to her and what she’s looking forward to doing when all this is over!

Check out my “Kick’n It With The Kitty” conversation with news reporter, Michele Newell:

ThisRadioChickRocks w/ Brandi “Inarbi Nicole” Brown, Baltimore Stylist and Businesswoman [VIDEO]

Brandi “Inarbi Nicole” Brown, owner of MLuxe Style Salon in Baltimore, MD

The coronavirus pandemic has changed a lot of lives across the globe. For more than a month, people across the country have had to alter their lives, careers, businesses and families in order to survive. Government officials and the President say there is hope but people aren’t trusting that change is gonna come as soon as they’d hope. Meaning, they’ll have to wait it out a little longer.

It hasn’t been easy for Brandi Brown, married with two twin girls and a salon owner in Baltimore City, Maryland.

The 30-something entrepreneur and stylist had to close her salon doors (before celebrating its one year anniversary) recently due to Maryland Governor Hogan’s stay-in policies.

If anyone knows Brandi personally, then you know she never settles for mediocre. She will do whatever she has to do (except compromise her or her family’s integrity and reputation) to take care of those she loves and continue building her empire. She’s definitely that BOSS CHICK!

I had an opportunity to “kick it” with Brandi for a few minutes to see how she’s doing, how she’s coping, and what her plans are once the stay-home policies have been lifted in her state.

Damn, son! Word On The Curb Is…Rapper Trick Daddy Arrested, Again! [AUDIO]

Word on the curb is a few celebrities got arrested Wednesday night. Former actor for “The Chi” (Showtime), Jason Mitchell was arrested in Mississippi on guns and drugs charges. I’m dissapointed to hear this because I’m a fan of his and had high hopes he was on his way to becoming a successful “success story”. Welp…

Rapper Trick Daddy was arrested after police found traces of what looked like cocaine on a rolled up dollar bill (to be honest, I’m not sure about the actual currency amount. It could have been a $5 or a $10 dollar bill. It doesn’t matter…I digress). The funny part about this story is Trick had the audacity to ask police if they knew who he was. I can imagine them saying “Yeah, we know who you are. Watch your head, sir”.

Finally, if you didn’t get enough of the Whitney Houston biopics well, there’s another in the works. According to The Jasmine Brand, the movie will be produced by music executive, Clive Davis and Whitney’s former manager and sister-in-law, Pat Houston. it’s not clear who will play Whitney or who will be cast in the project but know there’s one on the way!
