Wendy Williams Is Back And Eating Crow!


Watching Wendy Williams have to eat her words in ‘Crow’ on her return from vacation on Monday was hilarious. Yes, the queen bee of daytime talk shows was back from vacation ,telling her viewers that the number one question on folks minds was, “Are you going to eat the crow?” and her answer was yes, she was a woman of her word and will eat the crow.

So remaining true to her word and her viewers, the queen of daytime talk ate crow, only, this g-mogul had to take issue with one little fact. This crow was prepared by celebrity chef, Kevin Burrows, who cooked the bird in the form of a spicy gumbo stew. So, technically AND TO keep it real; even though you ate crow Wendy, you didn’t really eat the crow in its natural state, without all of the fixings. just saying.

Before Kanye West and Kim Kardashian got married, Wendy was talking stuff. Remember? She said she didn’t believe Kanye would marry his then baby mama, Kim Kardashian. Then, when they got engaged, my gurl was still doubtful about a wedding ever happening. But, when Kim and Kanye actually tied the knot amid a massive media blitz of opulence and wasteful spending habits and heightened sense of entitlement tomfoolery, Wendy made the crow bet that the marriage wouldn’t last longer than 72 days (the length of Kim’s marriage with basketball player, Chris Humphres)

Wendy came back to her show on Monday,which was the 73rd day of the married couple’s wedding and being that she is a woman of her word; ate gourmet style crow stew, with a crow bib around her neck and without her usual slathering on of hot sauce. Wendy ate crow, while viewers and her audience, her co-hosts got a lesson on the art of having to eat crow after putting your foot in your mouth:

Crows are wild animals and have to be hunted and shot down
Crow meat is tough and slides around
Crows have to be cooked a long time-like 4 hours And
Crows still harbor the taste of gunshot in the meat even after cooking? Wendy said she could take the residue from the bullets.
People in Utah love to eat crow
Crow is said to increase potency.

After eating crow, Wendy Williams still maintained that “just cause they are married (kim & Kanye) doesn’t mean they’re happy- we’ll be watching!”

Awww shucks, Wendy, just eat your crow!


More Fallout From Love & Hip Hop Reunion Part 3


These two men have been friends, reportedly for over 2 decades, but when they became separated by the drama that are the women in their lives, seemingly, all Hip Hop hell broke loose! According to Stevie J on Monday night’s episode of Love & Hip Hop Reunion, Part 3, “This was by far the best show in the history of Love and Hip Hop, ever.”

And, although it seemed to take a minute to articulate some clarity in his wordsssss; What? y’all saw that. We do get your drift, Stevie. Stevie J and Joseline, along with Benzino and Althea, were the ones viewers tuned in to see after that fight went down in part 2 of last week’s reunion. And the producers know when they got a runaway train wreck for success from airing their Reality TV’s Celeb Dirty Laundry.


It’s apparent to this g mogul that Stevie J, Joseline and Benzino (Althea not so much) are not going anywhere soon, no matter what the other cast-mates might like to see happen to Stevie J and Joseline. Could it be that all of that ‘backstabbing’ derailed their purpose by pushing the couple higher in the ratings? Hmmm, it appears that all of the haters and back biting backfired And there it is!

Who cares about Nikko and Mimi’s sex tape at this point? I mean, everybody knows it was a mutually agreed upon performance and that Nikko leaked the tape to the right people. Seemingly, Mimi didn’t know a thing about it (yawn)but this old girl been around the block and can “read” a ball faced falsehood a mile away. But, that’s their business and like Mimi says, even knowing that this jerk err man is married, she can’t help it if she, “likes his sex.”

Moving right along, I’m going to let y’all in on a little trivia and then leave the “TEA” gates open for your comments.

Reportedly (yours truly heard it through the blogs) so take it with a grain of salt- just sayin :) Stevie J and Whoopie Goldberg got something in common. Stevie J is the father of Whoopi’s daughter Alex’s first-born! I know, right?! This is one of those “Shut the back door”sort of what’s in the dark comes to light. Okay, give me a moment.


Love & Hip Hop Reunion 2- A Hot Mess

th j & s

It’s apparent that the majority of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Reunion 2 cast members show no love to their fellow cast members, Joseline and Stevie J tonight. Some of the cast basically put their business in the streets by letting the viewers in on what might have been speculation. Now that the alleged reports of drug abuse have surfaced, there are already talks of lawsuits between the Benzino/Althea and Stevie J/Joseline parties. A hot mess is what it is doncha know? I mean where in the world do Reality TV draw the line?

An older/newer member on the cast suggested drug tests, all around. Well, not too many on the reunion couch seconded that notion. I mean, let’s be real people if all of them took a pee-pee, rest assured that nobody would come back with just all clear urine specimen.just sayin’

Love & Hip Hop Reunion 2 was on fire tonight, but what’s so appalling for the g-mogul was not so much the fighting, but how everyone took to backstabbing the other and well, I’ve never seen such a reality reunion spectacle like tonight.

And if drugs are a problem for Stevie J and Joseline, as reported by some of the remaining cast on the show tonight, then, the producers have to make it right and offer their reality stars drug rehabilitation services.

Here’s the link to TMZ video of the fight:

Chime in y’all. Whatcha think about Love & Hip Hop Reunion?


Girlfriend Intervention On Lifetime Television

Okay, so this is the big reveal yours truly had to keep a lid on as an Essence insider! Yep, got to view the trailer of the first episode in the comfort of my own home, back in June and take it from the g mogul, you won't want to miss this one:) Here's the premise: 4 African-American makeover divas will be going into the homes of "clueless" women out there who need a wake-up call in the form of fashion, self-esteem, home decorating and just an all out overall u-haul in their personal lives. And get this, the experts includes a former Bad Girl's Club alumni Tanisha Thomas, who serves as the show's 'Soul' expert. I know right?! Okay, y'all, girls do grow up to become responsible women (wink-wink)

Anyhew, I think it's hilarious, a bit over the top and just slightly unbelievable as you will see from the clip. I mean these black women are about to ambush this unsuspecting white woman in her home and go through her closets without her consent?- this is a reality show right? Don't go giving us Real Housewives on a style/makeover show! just sayin'

The other three women are Tracy Balan, Nikki Chu and Tiffiny Dixon and they are experts in Style, Design, and Beauty. Their motto going in, is that the sisterhood gets it and they are 4 sisters who are going to bring color back into the lives of America's drab women. I have to tell you, I love the voice of the male host who remains unseen in the steps the hosts are taking to create something fabulous in Girlfriend Intervention.

Lifetime is bring the color with two more African-American reality shows in production. I hope we, the viewers and critics are getting quality shoes and not more of the same Drama in Reality TV is becoming overrated. just sayin.

Girl Intervention airs this Wednesday, August 27th on Lifetime at 10pm/ET/PT. Take a look at the clip and hit me up with your holla' back.


The Expendables 3: A Nostalgic Movie Review

th expendables 3

And so what if Sly Stallone’s 3rd screenplay didn’t wow y’all younger folks over the weekend this time around!? I mean, in my opinion, this third installment of The Expendables was the cat’s meow as in raining all those pecs! I don’t know about any of the other women out there, but the testosterone alone in this movie should have sealed the deal at the box off for them, along with enough action for the men, and who cares that Arnold and Sly had work done ( did y’all see Extra too?) that we know about for this movie or that Wesley Snipes joking about his tax evasion didn’t come off as funny as it was maybe intended in the script. That bit of reality didn’t necessarily have to be a part of Wesley’s comeback to the big screen or into acting, period. It was good seeing Blade, though. :)

And excuse me, but Mel Gibson playing the role of the fallen comrade turned vicious arms dealer seemed believable. More so than Terry Crews whose performance was overshadowed by those enormous arms! What? Y’all know those Popeye biceps were either painted on or blown up with fillers. It wasn’t too hard to figure whose were bigger either, his or Stallone’s; just sayin’


The Expendables 3 was a bit off at the box office over the weekend, reportedly bringing in something just over $16 million. Uh, excuse me, but I could use a mere penance of those coins, doncha know. Anyhew, this g-mogul enjoyed seeing all of the old timers bust a move and let me say for the record; the star power in this film was off the chain! I mean everyone was on set in this bad boy movie, except maybe for Bruce Willis whose appearance would have added to the movie great action scenes.I got a bit nostalgia watching this movie as it reminded me of the good ole days of Hollywood movies, heroines and heroes.(sigh)


I mean studios just don’t make movies like they used to and the action heroes just aren’t cut from the same cloth (no offense) like say, a Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Willis (missed ya) Lundgren, Banderas, Lee ( too small a roll here),Chan ( smaller role), Snipes, Ford and Statham. The others are not my idea of action heroes when it comes to these type movies, but they did okay in their respective roles: Terry Crews, Mel Gibson, Kelsey Grammer and Randy Couture. Enjoyed you all and I want everyone who is reading this to go see The Expendables 3 and don’t buy some blurred copy, people!

This was not a paid advertisement, doncha know. It sure reads like one, but what can I say? This movie was pure Sly Stallone gathering of old/er men who still brought out the big guns in entertainment.

Whoopi will still be the moderator, but who knows how that’s gonna flow with her friend Rosie unfiltered speak. just sayin’

Michael Strahan and Nicole Murphy End Their Engagement

th M&N
Hello peeps and g-moguls!

Y’all don’t know how much I wanted to come back on a high note after a 2 month hiatus from spilling the teas:) I mean, this teas-expert nearly had an interview from Downtown Julie Brown in the bag okay? The veejay of the 80s didn’t even return my plea with a holla back, y’all. Gurl gotta get back in with the hook-up-just saying.

So, I’ve missed a lot, but woke up to the bummed out news of Michael Strahan and Nicole Murphy ending their 5 year engagement. In their defense, at least they didn’t call it “irreconcilable differences’, or is that just for married folks? Another good thing for the couple is that no monies have to be divided by a prenup- hmm, now the wheels are spinning.

Some reports are saying Michael called off the engagement and others report it was Nichole who ended the relationship because of the distance they had to travel to keep the home fires burning. Nicole Murphy films her reality show Hollywood Exes in California, while Michael Strahan’s Live! With Kelly and Michael and GMA morning talk is in New York.

Is travel the culprit causing their split and not the alleged disagreement over a prenup signing? Only Nicole and Michael knows for sure. Psst, the g-maven wager that Nicole and Andrea are going to become best buds on the exes now. Wanna bet? :)

M& N

Look, this is not what I wanted to hit y’all up with on my return to the tea-table, cause these two made a good-looking couple, but hit me up next Saturday ( new posting schedule) to see what teas capture my attention and makes me want to share with my tea crew!

I’m off for a steaming cup of java. Care to join me? Downtown Julie Brown could still answer the call cause we just wanna know “Where is she now?!”

Hey did y’all catch Martin Lawrence on Jimmy Fallon last night? So glad he’s slimmed down and looking like “Martin!”
