Tamar And Vince On The Wendy Williams Show

Hello my peeps! I know today is Tuesday and not Monday, my monthly posting day and I’m not trying to be shady, people, but this springing back and forth thing has rattled my patience and upset my daily routine a bit! I have been so busy trying to avoid the busyness, that I’m falling behind on my obligations. You dig? Anyho, it’s hard to keep a  good woman down when she’s got game, kinda like Tamar Braxton who was fired from The Real a year ago, had life threatening medical issues and rumored to have had an affair on Vincent, who in turn, was alleged to have a ‘love child’ on her… Tamar, who is turning 40 years old this week, seems to have come into owning her ish.

Bravo to you Tamar! I’m going to check out your rumored new talk show, although there hasn’t been much talk about it from the Steve Harvey camp or from Tamar.  But, Braxton Family Values is entering its 6th season and from recent clips, the premiere looks to be very juicy stuff.

I didn’t post Monday because I wanted to wait for Tamar & Vince’s guest appearance on Wendy Williams in hopes of  a cup of flavored tea to indulge your taste buds with today. The interview wasn’t overly revealing, but Vince disclosed he’d lost 90 plus pounds and that he didn’t know he was so big… now, really Vince? I found that kind of hard to believe, but we own what we want to own about ourselves, people.

I had to go and get new spectacles ( that would be eyeglasses to the Millennia) and I can see better now and I see Reality TV becoming more crass, invasive and over dramatized and frankly I’m becoming bored with it all. Maybe I’ll concentrate on penning a celeb book on the glitz and glamor and the lack of nonrecognition for actors and actresses of color that was old Hollywood. You know something substantial and accurate:)

Here’s a clip of Tamar & Vince on Wendy Williams:

Trending Celeb Updates for October

ykexbijy_reasonably_small

Happy October G-moguls! Thank y’all for not bailing on the tea blog, now that I’m posting monthly. Did I forget to mention how Y’all Rock!  A big shout out to Celeb Dirty Laundry @celebdirtylaund for the recent Twitter follow! People I don’t be making this stuff up:)

Anyhew, here are your celeb teas for October that includes a brief run through of my opinionated thoughts about what’s really going on in the world of celebville.

A big ole “sorry” going out to Wendy Williams for criticizing the way she hocks her clothing line everyday on the show. It does get a bit old, boring and tired, but listen every show is advertising products, either to line their own pockets or line the pockets of the networks they work for, so the g mogul can’t be a hypocrite by hating on Wendy’s hustle.

I do have a bone that needs picking, though, Wendy. Why did you/r executives have Jason and another producer take the fall because you didn’t know your black people history? I mean, every person (black, white, brown, red) should know something about the NAACP! The firing wasn’t a good look , Wendy. Just sayin.’

I was a bit shook up to hear about Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s divorce. I cannot rejoice over the breakup of anybody’s marriage, especially when kids are involved. My thing is, why are people smacking their lips with glee over this? I’m not team Jennifer Aniston or any exes that came before. That’s somebody’s personal thang, happening between two people and the rest of the world needs to butt out.

It blew my mind to read that Kevin Hart was the highest ranking comedian to top Forbes Magazine’s list of rich celebrities. Seems Kevin drew in over $87 million dollars between June 2015 and June 2016, landing him sixth place on the Celebrity 100, FORBES’ annual list of richest celebs.The newly married Hart even beat out the top ranking comedian, Jerry Seinfeld and dude is still going strong. Now, a little birdie told me, actually Eddie Murphy said he was curiously considering returning to the standup stage. Well, Eddie does have like 9 or 10 kids and he is still funny as heck, so why not?

I was bummed to learn that Nicole Beharie wasn’t returning to Sleepy Hollow and that Tom Mison was getting a new female and possibly romantic lead. My next thought was what about Lyndie Greenwood aka Jenny Mills? We can say goodbye to Caitlyn Jenner’s I AM CAIT, which got low ratings. But, those darn Kardashians keep on trucking.

Where’s Tamar Braxton sans The Real? And how many of y’all rooting for Rob&Chyna? Keep it on the real, though! I wish success and happiness to everrrbody.Just sayin 🙂

I want y’all to mark your calendars for my new book, Unleash Your Pearls Empowering Women’s Voices due out soon. Traditional publishers take about a year to produce a product and I’m waiting for my book release- all entrepreneurs know, “if you don’t have a product you can’t make a profit”and I’m in need of my frigging product:)

Anyhew, y’all can hit up the book’s email address for more news and to claim your autographed copy  from the g-mogul @ unleashyourpearls@yahoo.com

wzw-unlease-your-pearls-cover

Okay, see what I just did? I’m advertising my book’s distribution just like the celebs and talk show hosts and their guests making public appearances to sell their latest products. Capitalism feeds the world!

holla…

Recap Of Fun Summer Fashion From The Wendy Williams Show

Hello everyone! Today is June 1st, which means I forgot to send the usual monthly post for y’all. Well, people, it’s because the g-maven penciled time off dates from her two other blogs (subtle plug) https://clara54.wordpress.com/ and http://wisewoman2.wordpress.com. She forgot to post at the tea blog. This clearly means she’s off her game, but have no fear, she got ya!

Instead of the usual brand of teas today, however, we’re gonna talk about fashion. Yep, fashion is always fun and because the g-maven is “resting”, we’re just going to talk summer fun fashion and what’s trending for everybody. So, are we good?! Y’all know celebs like Kate Hudson and Beyonce’ have come out with their brand of athletic wear, and there’s the Jenner girls for the younger generation. But, did y’all know that some real housewives brought their line of clothing to HSN and made money hand over fists? Lisa Rinna even quipped how she makes more money in a few hour on HSN than she does doing an episode of the reality show (Real Housewives of Beverly Hills)

NeNe Leakes would know a thing or two about that conversation, considering she sold out her whole line of clothing at a HSN appearance, also. These celebs know how to get their coins. Speaking of which, Wendy Williams is a walking billboard, advertising her clothing line on the show. I mean, she literally wore pieces from her line everyday and had the animated Suzanne ( the one who gets Wendy’s audience riled up and clapping) to wear them too. I suppose that’s a great way to push your product, but, the opinion of this g-maven? It came off as Wendy being thirty and tacky:) Just saying. Y’all know Wendy is my gurl, but Jeez.

Here’s Video of Some Fun Summer Fashions obtained from an episode of The Wendy Williams Show.

I’m going for the off the shoulder tops, two piece or dress trend that can be athletic inspired. White and floral pieces are always a good summer choice. Body conscious pieces are not on my preferred fashion to-do list, but they’re striking pieces as well. Remember, white out fashion is the summer fun stand out.

Thank you ladies & gents, for the support of your follow! I hope to see y’all in July with brand new teas that will be well worth your wait. 🙂

Lamar Odom Commentary: When The World Prayed

220px-Lamar_Odom_2012_Shankbone

There are documented cases where people share their near death experiences, often referred to as out- of- body experiences. Many of these people say they hear God speak or that they find themselves walking into the white or bright light leading to heaven’s door. I wonder about Lamar Odom’s near death experience. Did he see God? Did his whole life flash before his eyes? Perhaps we’ll never know. What I know for sure is that the world grieved, prayed and asked God to save this man after a near fatal drug overdose. We didn’t judge. Instead, we prayed for his life, through his comatose state, his organ failures and his altered mental status. We prayed and although there are reports that he’s still limited in certain physical and mental capacities, a team of doctors guided by God’s invisible hand helped restore Lamar Odom to the extent that he can walk, talk and smile again.

thdallas

Lamar Odom was given a second chance at life. He was one of the lucky ones and as the world got to see him slowly improve; fans, friends and family of Lamar Odom thanked the good lord for bringing Lamar back. Irregardless of the obtuse act he committed against himself, the pain and suffering he caused to his loved ones and the fear that he might not make it shared by the world, we all were rooting for Lamar Odom. The latest reports about Lamar doesn’t sound good. Lamar is reportedly drinking again and thinks he can handle it. Lamar Odom is a human being in pain and an addict in denial. An addict with all the resources he needs at his disposal to get the treatment he needs to stay clean and sober and free from drugs.

thlo

Lamar is allegedly telling friends and family that he doesn’t need treatment for his addiction, but he is willing to continue his physical therapies. In my humble opinion, Lamar Odom is very, very, lucky to be alive. Sadly, Lamar ill informed if he thinks he can have just one drink. His addictive personality won’t allow it. Lamar Odom needs to do the work he must do to live and become the great man he can be. If he doesn’t do it for himself, then, do it for his children.

sad-lamar-odom

Lamar, the world wept, prayed and had conversations with the man upstairs when we thought you might not make it. We prayed then and I suppose we’ll keep praying for you, like humanity calls for us to do, but you’re not doing your part. You have to wake up Lamar and be accountable~ there are little boys and girls wanting to play ball like you and they are watching from the sidelines. We prayed for you when you were knocking on death’s door, Lamar Odom and we’ll keep praying for you, even when we just want to knock some sense into that beautiful bald head of yours!! Get the help you need and thank the good lord every single day for giving you another change to get your life right.

thlast

Alright, what y’all think about Lamar Odom drinking again? Should we be worried he’ll start the drugs? Tell me what you really think in the comments and I’ll get back with ya next month.

Peace!

 

 

How Celebs Are Staying Relevant In Hollywood~

"It's getting hot out there and I ain't talking about celebs getting divorced or posing in the nude.That's old news people! The thirst is real as the hunger for relevancy becomes the new black out there in the world of Hollywood gone Hollyweird."

Good Morning my fellow g-moguls! You guys are making me sit down to write something cause y'all are blowing up my site and I sort of feel bad that I've been ignoring your patronage:( Anyhew, forgive my lack of 'tea' transgressions and I'm going to do better. Y'all know the teas are monthly now, but I'm going to try to post earlier. It seems celebrities out there in Hollyweird have reached an all time low with their tea spilling antics toward each other. I mean look how Cynthia dissed her cheating (allegedly)husband Peter on RHOA when her sister, Mallory asked if she was still attracted to ole boy, " even with his clothes off."

Now, I don't know about y'all, but if I was in front of the cameras and asked that question, even if I thought my man's body was something 'ug'ly, I would have saved face (mine & his) put on a big ole smile and answered, "Are you kidding me right now, gurl?! "Of course, I love me some Peter. Right down to his sagging belly button!". Just saying:)
Instead Cynthia response was a resounding , "No."

Now, y'all got to be savvy g-mogul when it comes to counting the ways these celebrities are striving for relevancy. Cynthia and Peter's story-line comes into play when I hear her diss him on national television. But, then a woman scorned and all of that. And Cynthia was filmed celebrating her birthday on board that 'below deck' cruise line with just her daughter and Claudia in attendance. So, where there's shade, there's bound to be repercussions.. And speaking of shade?

Ms. Vivica A Fox! Gurl, like gurl, what were you thinking?! Chile did Andy Cohen of (Watch What's Happening Live) put a little too much vodka in yours?

Didn't you learn a long time back that you don't go throwing shade and spilling sexual secrets that could stump a man's ego?!or expose his fetishes?! :) And didn't you know he would clap back?! The brother is from the streets where he knows how to play the game a darn sight uglier that an actress some hint at is trying a bit too hard to stay relevant. The story goes that Vivica was showing support to her new gig over at Fox's "Empire" for supposedly 50 cent support of an article indicating that the show was losing viewers because of too much "gay stuff" characterizations. And it seems 50 is till feeling some sort of way. Saying in a recent interview he thought his ex (Vivica) was desperate. Anyhew, reportedly, the rapper deleted his support of the piece denouncing gay characters.

It's all one big mess of celebrity hating on celebrity mess, if you ask me. Now Caitlyn Jenner got somewhat of a cool down reception from transgender protesters when she appeared in the Windy City to speak at a LGBT charity luncheon. Jenner attempt to speak to the protesters didn't fare so well, calling the former Olympian a disgrace to the trans people and felt like they had been violated because of her advocacy that didn't include the rich and famous demographic.

There's just too much going on in Hollyweird and it just keeps getting weirder. I mean when Whoopi Goldberg's daughter gets a reality show, y'all know the thirst is real! What?! Y'all know for yourself that some folks are just famous for being in the company of fame. Just sayin'

Melissa Rivers Throws Shade At Former Fashion Co-Hosts

Happy Wednesday G-moguls! Where does the time go? I could start by rehashing on those brazen, potty-mouth, sexually promiscuous, ratchet folk over at Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, but I can’t cause I might throw up in my mouth. I could spill about what celebrities are in the process of getting divorced after Ben and Jen, but that celeb news is never new news and I bore easily. I am gonna diss, err, dish a bit about the VMAs though; Hated it!

Miley Cyrus was over the top obnoxious,at times disrespectful and got what she deserved when Nicki Minaj checked her “boo.”

I have these intuitive eyes/words for Caitlyn Jenner over at E! I Am Cait:

Watch out for the thicker than thieves (sharks) in your new trans family of friends, Caitlyn… Just like in the heterosexual world, not everyone have your best interest at heart; just theirs.This time it was the car. Next time, it might be a mansion…just sayin’:)

Here’s the spill of interest that gets this maven’s green light post: Dang video won’t load so hit the link, people.

Melissa Rivers is back at the helm of Fashion Police made popular by her late mom, comedian Joan Rivers. Apparently Melissa is feeling some type of way about former co-hosts, Kathy Griffin and Kelly Osbourne-talking about she had to clean house and holding up pieces of red and purple hair lol

Y'all might recall Melissa threw shade at Giuliana Rancic when she made the inappropriate comments about Zendaya's hair and got a well deserved backlash for? Melissa Rivers posted a photo of her mom Joan with the teen after that incident. It's sad when grown folk show their true colors (no pun intended) and then half ass apologize for it. "Bye Felicia!"

Monday Fashion Police returned with new guest co hosts, NeNe Leakes and Margaret Cho. Ms. Cho gave it back to Giuliana when talking about Miley Cyrus fake locs smelling like patchouli oil and weed. Giuliana could only hide her face but she knows she offended folks, leading many to call her "racist."

NeNe Leakes was still the drama queen and over the top with her diva like fashion critiques. Margaret Cho got a thumbs up overall from critics and viewers.But, NeNe Leakes is trying hard to become the next Joan Rivers of Fashion Police. News flash,NeNe, there's only one Joan like there's only one NeNe. Do you boo. Do you.

Okay, that's a wrap, people. Back to regular folk drama.

holla'

Wendy Williams …”I’ve Evolved!”

Hello my peeps! It’s been a while but I’m back in April, just like the g-mogul promised. I have an announcement to make at the end of the post, so stay tuned.:) Now, listen up, I wanted to bring you a clip from Friday’s Wendy Williams show, because she told her viewers and audience of co-hosts something that bears repeating. You won’t see it on the after show clip, so I’m going to say it here.

Wendy Williams is fresh off spring hiatus, people and she said these words on Friday, “I have evolved!” Now, y’all know when Wendy Williams tells us something like that, there’s gotta be a reason. The 50-year-old talk show diva was referring to her position on Reality TV watching and how she doesn’t care any longer about the ratchet-ness of Reality TV that involves cast members pulling hair (she said weaves) calling each other b*tches and jumping over conference tables. She went on to name some shows she did like, such as Botched, The Millionaire Matchmaker and Million Dollar Listings.

I agree with the Queen of talk on the state of ratchet reality televisions, but I have to say, I do get my Real Housewives of Atlanta and The Housewives of Beverly Hills on. Just sayin.:)

Now, the Love & Hip Hop franchise, Housewives of Melbourne ( this one reportedly getting the ax) Housewives of New York, The Manzoes, Housewives of New Jersey and Keeping Up With The Kardashians (by the way a spin-off with the Black twins in the lead overseeing the Dash girls are in the works) are all becoming a bore.

Anyhew, it seems most celeb teas these days are cause for the g-mogul yawn. When there’s nothing new and exciting to report to y’all about the lives of the rich, famous and overexposed, I won’t post,period. Any any ole celeb crap just won’t do. And that’s why I’m only going to post once a month at the blog!

Yep, after decades of penning tales, sharing my op-eds and following up on what outrageous thing a celeb did or said, to stay relevant , this g-maven find it all quite uninteresting. I will continue to post monthly celebrity news that I feel is “news” worthy in the future and I hope y’all continue to role with my brand of unique celeb reporting, cause there’s no me without you guys & gals!

Keep it real, my peeps…holla’
