Memorial Day Farewells

TGIF g-moguls! I encourage and join with all of you in taking a moment to appreciate those brave men and women who have fought and died for America’s safety, then and now, and to remember the families left behind! Thank you America’s soldiers for all you continue to do.

So, this post is about saying good-bye, of sorts. Folks learned that Phaedra Parks was fired from The Real Housewives of Atlanta in April because she, allegedly spread malicious rumors that Kandi Burruss and her husband, Todd, planned to drug and kidnap fellow housewife Portia Williams for a sexual escapade…

Now, according to reports, this was a blatant lie told outright to Portia by her best bud on the show, Phaedra, and because Portia trusted the words of her bestie, she repeated this info to Kandi, who went ballistic ( putting that mildly) and feared that her reputation would be damaged. Thus, she brought cease and desist charges against Portia.

The RHOA reunion revealed Phaedra, who stayed mum through all of this heated drama between Portia and Kandi on the show, was the real culprit. After the dust settled a bit, reportedly, Portia and Phaedra are not friends anymore, Ms. Parks alluded that one of the producers had told her this story and she merely repeated it. That allegation was quickly shutdown by Andy Cohen, bravo’s mega millionaire producer and founder of the Bravo franchise. This g-mogul sorta had a soft spot for the lawyer and often talked through the phone at her to speak up when the other women went after her. Good-bye Phaedra , keep your wits about you and remember gurl…” you a lawyer”!

It was news to lil ol me that Tracey Edmonds, ex-wife of the ultra sexy sounding Babyface, and part of Extratv trio of entertainment correspondents (Mario Lopez being the front man) would be existing the popular gossip show in June. Ms. Edmonds posted about her departure on social media, thanking the show/crew and all of her adoring fans for her time at Extra. She was only with the show three years, amid speculation that some folks behind the scenes, initially didn’t want her on the program. They voiced concern about Tracey’s lack of experience in television and her ability to carry the show… well, bye Felicia, whoever y’all are. (insert head roll) I think Ms. Tracey did an excellent job.

Of course, we don’t know the real tea, but something seemed a bit remiss, when the sistah wasn’t showing up in the headlining promos with those other two. Did y’all peep that? Good luck with your new venture on wellness and such, Tracey Edmonds. If you need an expert on the inner working of human nature, I’m your go-to. Just sayin.:)

Y’all know how the g-maven been hanging with those Supernatural boys since its inception on the CW? Well, going into their 13th season this fall, Sam and Dean won’t have Crowley to have their backs anymore, as the quirky supernatural demon has left the building, leaving plenty of fans crying,”Oh, hell no!” It’s reported by hell’s demon that he’s moving on.

Mark Sheppard tweeted that he had no plans on returning to Supernatural and that, my peeps seems to be that. All this g-mogul can say is you do you, fella, cause life is too short. No pun intended, y’all. I loved me some Crowley. Any hew,  just as Nicole Beharie left Sleepy Hollow, one of my fave shows, btw, methinks this might be a case of mistreatment in some form or another or dude could be bored. Anyhow, just g-mogul views people:)

And the last person of interest to take their leave will be yours truly. Okay, so, I’m not saying I’m famous or anything but I’ve had a pretty good run, writing about celebrity and all of this craziness that kept my readers enthralled and curious for 10 years. In some instances she even got the coins. Well, no more fluff, at least for now. I’m taking an indefinite leave from the blogs in order to get focus on my priorities and do meaningful work. You know that work that really matters in the world.

In the meantime, if you’d like to own a copy of the g-mogul’s latest book, championing the woman voice, do pick up your signed copy of Unleash Your Pearls, available now! Hit me up at the book’s email address-unleashyourpearls@yahoo.com and let’s do the thing!

It’s been real exposing the real. Have a great Memorial Day, my peeps. Stay safe.

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:)

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…
