K-Michelle’s “Anybody Wanna Buy A Heart?”

Hello my peeps! Well, I woke up this morning singing “There’s an army rising up. There’s an army rising up. Break every chain..break every chain.” Okay, so y’all know there’s a power in the name of Jesus and that’s all I’m just sayin.':)

I know it’s strange that I sang this song, considering I’m about to diss the ‘teas’ on former Love & Hip Hop reality star turned songstress to the people, K-Michelle! I know right? Just goes to show we are multidimensional spiritual being, people!

Anyho, so, K-Michelle hit Wendy Williams couch not so long ago to talk about her new album, the men and her life, including the on who got away and took to the Wendy stage to sang the song in dude’s honor. Now Ibris Alba why you wanna go and mess with K- Michelle like that? Just sayin. “Love oh love, why you wanna go away and leave her here to cry or sing about your butt”:)

Okay, it's dope, right? k-Michelle spills the teas leading up to Maybe I should callon her new album, 'Anybody Wanna Buy A Heart' and why she had to move on after 8 months with the handsome actor. Seems Ibris was a new daddy; like brand new.

Allegedly and according to K Michelle, she knew about the pregnancy of said other woman and dated him anyway because 'the sparks just flew' between them when they met at the Soul Train Music Awards.

Well, apparently it wasn't all gravy because K. Michelle tells Wendy that she's nobody side chick. Breakups are painful, but the talented diva is riding high with her own reality TV show called what else but, K-Michelle? and with a great album out and a beautiful couple of songs on there (what I've heard so far) and she's still got game.

One word fellas. Be your best true self dating K-Michelle, because you might see yourself on blast in lyrics of a song take from real life. Y'all know K- Michelle's album is based upon real life experiences, sort of like how Tyler Swift gets her revenge.

holla'

And Happy Holidays to each and every one of y'all. The g-mogul is on a holiday break until January 2015!

About Mary J Blige’s New Album “London Sessions”

Mary J. Blige's new album sounds great! I particularly like "Therapy" where she starts with the lyrics "Why would I spend the rest of my days unhappy? Why would I spend the rest of this year alone? Oh shoot, just check out the video.. and if you like Mary J sounds from the past, y'all are going to love this new Mary J Blige album titled "London Sessions!"

By the way, Mary spent time in London recording this album. She is making the talk shows and tours to different cities and radio stations to promote the album. Mary J pays homage to a fallen music artist, she always wanted to meet, Amy Winehouse, but sadly never got the chance. Amy Winehouse died from a drug/alcohol overdose and was, according to Mary, the inspiration behind "Therapy"

Remember Amy Winehouse's "Rehab"? Loved that song and was, like a lot of folks, saddened that her musical gift was never fully realized.

Peace and blessing and all good stuff!

P.S. Did you know that Mary J. Blige kicked her drug habit on her own and never sought treatment? She’s clean and sober and doesn’t even drink!

NeNe Leakes: “I’m A Hustler And A Grinder”

Good Morning peeps! I have a lot on my plate this morning and I just took my meds, so let’s get it popping (in my best Wendy Williams voice) What? yes, Wendy is still my girl,but by the time she brings the ‘hot topics’ to y’all on her show today, the g-maven will have already given my readers the teas:) Just sayin’

nene-leakes-andy-cohen

So, NeNe Leakes sat in the guest seat over at Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live! to dish on the RHOA premiere, herself as a “hustler and a grinder” and also the reunion, where Portia Stewart-Williams was inconspicuously absent. Everybody knows Portia was let go on the show and landed a job on the radio’s popular Dish Nation. She was in an episode or two on the premiere of the real housewives and will appear in a few earlier episodes set to air. There were ‘rumors’ that Cynthia would be let go also,but so far that tea remains to be seen.

Here are some highlights from last night’s Andy’s Q & A with NeNe Leakes:

Andy asks- what NeNe thought about Kenya and Cynthia talking about her on the Real Housewives episode last night.
NeNe- “This is the first time I saw that. Let her have her moment, I don’t have the time. I’m on Broad way.” When Adny askes if they’ll ever be friends again, NeNe replies, “No, No, and No, we shouldn’t be friends again. Bye girls, I’m on Broadway, holla!”

Andy- NeNe, people want to know if you think you’re superior to the other women on the show and are you leaving the show?
NeNe- “Maybe, I won’t stay, you’ll have to wait and see. I’m very over the negative drama…honestly, I do not want to get up and sit with a bunch of negative women who want to sit and do nothing.” And earlier NeNe had alluded to Cynthia in this manner, in regards to their friendship and Cynthia’s new allegiance to Kenya. “Cynthia doesn’t seem to have a backbone she’s never been my lap-dog.”

Andy- A viewer wants to know if you feel bad about calling Peter a “b#tch”?
NeNe- I’d apologized to Peter. We were cool before, but once Twitter started up, Cynthia felt like she had to do something. I don’t think that was the reason for the end of the friendship it was all a part of a master plan.”

640_nene_leakes_zumanity

NeNe headlined a Risque Vegas Show, called ‘Zumanity’ Cirque Du Soleil and by Andy asked in a game of the same name, who she would save and who she’s let fall: Here’s how NeNe responds:

Save: Phaedra- like
Mama Joyce- cool
Kris Jenner- like
Kandi- hedges on like

Wouldn’t save: Wendy Williams, Cynthia, Kenya and Peter.

NeNe Leakes will be taking over Sherri Shepherd’s role, playing the wicked stepmother to KeKe Palmer’s Cinderella on Broadway and so, yes, she’s a hustler and a grinder folks!

Flex And Shanice Premieres On The Own Network

thFLEX

Let’s just give it up first of all to the media mogul, Oprah Winfrey and the success of OWN Network. There was a bit of guidance and help by way of Tyler Perry that turned the network around during its initial run, where viewers were left scratching their heads; wondering if they should really follow Lady “O” after The Oprah Show ended its final taping on a high note.

Before Tyler Perry used his storytelling expertise and partnered with Oprah to bring us “The Haves And The Have Nots” and the comedy “For Better Or Worse” ( in my opinion, a near fail) “Welcome To Sweetie Pies, seemingly became the only hit maker for the network at the time.

The Own Network introduced its audience to two new Reality Shows on Saturday night, “Deoin’s Family Playbook” following former football player Deoin Sanders with his girlfriend “Extra” new host and ex wife of Babyface, Tracey Edmonds. Didn’t care for the show because it felt scripted, stiff and forced; you know celebrities think they have to be “on” at all times. Maybe I’ll be patient and watch it for a bit before writing it off completely:)

This show just seems to lack that “realness” factor. Time will tell, people. The g-mogul is just calling it like she feels it:)

flex-and-shanice

Actor and comedian, Flex Alexander and his wife, singer Shanice Wilson are a hit together! I love the natural flow of the show where the couple share teas on once having it all, but found themselves 13 years ago, broke and losing their home, cars and having to file bankruptcy. If that wasn’t enough, the couple had to move in with their family. So, you have 7 people in one home, including two cousins (hilarious) an uncle whose trying to learn how to text and Flex & Shanice’s two kids…a smart mouth, but cute 10-year old son and a 13-year old daughter who thinks she “not” a child?! too funny.

The show is great and premieres Saturdays 10/9pm central time. Catch it. Y’all will love it and do me a huge favor?

Send me a comment and let me know who y’all think will become the breakout star on this show? I already got you covered:)

In response to the words of Shanice Wilson, “It’s hard being a broke celebrity.” Sistah Girl, I am nobody’s celebrity and it’s damn hard being a broke anybody in these uncertain times. Psst, I’ll be your manager. JUST SAYIN’

Treat yourself special…

Actress Vanessa Bell Calloway: On Fashion, Work, and Reality TV

As promised I'm sharing great highlights from my interview with the talented mega actress, producer, star of stage and screen, Ms.Vanessa Bell Calloway! And for the record, this g-mogul must care about her peeps and followers out there, because this post was at the top of my to-do list and one that took time to transcribe. Just sayin' and no shade to MS. Calloway for giving me what I asked for in her authentic responses that all y'all need to appreciate.

This is not the complete interview from the busy actress who is currently starring as Zora Neale Hurston in her one woman play,"Letters From Zora...In Her Own Words, at the Crossroads Theatre in New Brunswick, NJ. The show runs from October 9th (my sis birthday) to the 26th and reportedly to rave reviews. Ms. Calloway is also super busy with her popular web series "In The Company of Friends." Check out the clip above.

Letters-From-Zora

Here's some of our interview:

g-mogul- Ms. Calloway, as you know, fashion is all the rage these days, as depicted in magazines, on the red carpet and on the runways. What is Vanessa Bell Calloway's fashion style ( laugh here or snicker, hard to tell):)

response- I don't really know if I have a signature style, but, I do like clothes. I love accessories. I love purses and I love shoes. I just feel what looks good on me and what I like. I don't really care about the designer and I'll put an expensive piece with a piece that's on sale. You know I'm doing the best I can.

g-mogul- Would you ever consider doing Reality TV? This is a lengthy response in regards to reality television because we touched upon how she felt about "established" or "learned" actresses doing a reality TV series like, for instance "Hollywood Divas", the new show on TV One and starring Elise Neal, Countess Vaughn, Golden Brooks, Lisa Wu and Paula Parker Ari.

response- My daughter had a reality show on television called Baldwin Hills and it featured her and my family was featured for quite some time. The show was on for 3 seasons and she was on for 2 of those seasons, which started when she was a junior in high school. Then she was a senior and she graduated and went to SPELMAN. We sort of already did that.

When asked if she'd seen Hollywood Divas and her thoughts on established actresses doing a Reality Series:
Ms. Calloway responds... I don't watch a lot of those shows. I don't know what's it about. ( given a brief synopsis by yours truly) continues:
I think that people do what's best for them. I try not to judge other people motives. I think you do what's best for you...it's not something I'd be interested in, but that's me. It doesn't mean it's not a good thing to do, it just means I won't do it and it's not something I'd be interested in watching cause I don't watch all of those Hollywood Wives and all that stuff.

I don't really like those shows, but that's me and they don't need me to watch. They have a large fan base and their shows are doing quite well...(pause) there's so much on TV these days. You pick what you want, watch what you want and you don't have to criticize it and if you don't want to watch? There's a lot of people who watch it'

Okay, here I had to concur because the g-maven watch all that stuff! What?!

The interview kept going after putting me on hold for a brief moment in time. When we continued Ms. Calloway answered questions in regards to her one woman play where she asked that people on the East coast go and see the play. She also talked about her popular web series ( sneak peek video above) her Radio Talk Show and things her fans might not know about her-

image1-1

Y'all just might have to catch all of that and then some when my conversation ( more than an interview) with Ms. Vanessa Bell Calloway continues. In the meantime and between time, go catch the play, tune into the radio talk show and become a fly on the wall at Ms. Calloway's house where she invites you into her space as she entertains good friends such as Elise Neal, Loretta Devine and Vivica A. Fox ( just to name a few) in her web series "In The Company Of Friends."

That's a wrap people!

holla' and always, "treat yourself special."
