Girl. We dig DEEP into the Potomac drama, including why our girl Gizelle is coming across as such a hater this season. It’s disturbing.
Even though Monique gets on our nerves in general, we find some compassion for her miscarriage and her marriage. In discussing Monique’s identity as a wife, ready for her spotlight, we share some excerpts from the Harvard Business Review Article entitled, “Marry someone who supports your career — or don’t get married.”
Finally, we decide whether Jen or Tami is the bigger snake. We land squarely on Tami, but it’s close.
Paisley is a sap – she binged Love Is ____ and can’t wait for SDV to catch up. And for a third week, Paisley is utterly obsessed with the emotional rollercoaster of “Pose.”
SDV loves something on the Shade Room (who can be bothered to scroll through all those posts), and shocks with a second YAS for Power
So yeah we know it’s been a while since we’ve last spoken. We’re not going to lie to you and make up some sob story…truth is we’re out here in these Soundcloud, iTunes, Twitter and Instagram streets. You can follow us via all of those avenues or whatever you so chose either way stay tuned!!
Jumping into the shit…last week aka the end of April, this country wrapped up a whole bunch of shit in a funky ass bow that has a lot of you niggas mad! Sorry but not sorry about everyone’s favorite t.v dad, at 81 finally facing imprisonment after years of being a prick towards women.
Let us not forget all the antics of Kanye West which became Ye vs. the people, the TMZ incident and the CNN panel discussing the recklessness of his most recent commentary and a lengthy interview with The Breakfast Club’s own Charlamagne The God.
We even had Kelis telling her story, breaking her long term silence regarding her abusive relationship with Nas.
The audacity of the ignoramuses are out here cape’n for the most fuck shit is absolutely sad and disappointing there’s no getting around wrong and we both need men and women to get with the fucking program! Sexual intimidation, sexual assault, abuse of any kind , and reckless platform usage (inaccurate recollections of history) = WRONG doing people. How much more do the naysayers need before they grasp the understanding that changes need to be made.
Moral of last weeks chain of events seems to be that following people blindly is reckless, look before you leap friends.
This week we have an honest conversation about our struggles with anxiety, aided by Housewives of Potomac. We skate on over to Cabo, for Invite Only drama, and close the show with Basketball Wives
So bitch. It’s Lit. That’s all.
I know we’ve mentioned her before, but H.E.R. – Really the whole project but that Jungle / Pigment roundoff… my God. It was the loop that got me through a very rough Thursday and Friday.
Lastly, I live in Miami, home to Revolt Music Conference. I’ve always lived the conference vicariously through some of my favs on social media, like Claire of Fashion Bomb Daily. The panels each year SOUND amazing, but I could never justify the costs, since I don’t want to work in the industry. Recently, while perusing my U-Verse app, I discovered that they run the panels on the Revolt TV channel. They run them at odd hours, primarily in the middle of the night. So, I record them and peruse them for gems in my downtime. Highly suggest you do the same.

(Can we discuss how sick Cardi B. looks in Gucci. ugh. so GOOD)
Are you inviting ALL your good friends on vacay with you? We say no, followed by HELL no, and invite only is going prove why mixing friend groups is a horrible idea. We also chat about marriage when your partner has been divorced, in some cases more than once. Is marriage even necessary?
Missy Elliot for Elle in Marc Jacobs. So good to see Missy getting her due.
Designer Recho Omondi is unapologetic in this episode of the Naked Beauty Podcast. Loved it.
This week, with guest Amber J, we delve into the flipside of the Tami / Evelyn drama on Basketball wives, interracial dating, inspired by a blood boiling episode of “With Friends Like These,” and Shea Moisture.
I was listening to an episode of Identity Politics about Muslims in the Media. One of the guests brought up Yuna I thought “wait Yuna…. wait I’ve never seen her hair.” My dumb ass just thought she wore dope hair wraps. 😭😭😭 Of course that sent me down a google rabbit hole, through which I concluded Yuna is dope as hell. Her style is so sick. I also played some of my favs, including “Crush,” featuring Usher. Her last album was great and her first album was that vibey thing I love.
My guy Obama is out here cashing checks and looking like a bag of money and the whites WILL deal. Trevor summed it up PERFECTLY.
AND of course there’s Jade – last week’s episode of Jade and XD is absolutely hilarious. Listen Here.
This week has been a fucking mess with white people’s president INTERRUPTING SCANDAL, to tell us he struck Syria with 59 MISSILES and such. *says a prayer that we don’t end up in WW3 because of this idiot.* Nevertheless, we’re talking Housewives of Potomac and Atlanta this week, along with Greenleaf inspired family drama.
SDV and I are both from 757. So, Pharrell is like a hometown fav. And this video is PERFECTION.
This week we’re talking white men being in the way, per usual. 🙄
Auntie Max was sick of their shit and went high when Bill’s bitch ass went low.
Cousin Angelawas even more sick of their shit and gave it to Joe’s punk ass in true black girl fashion, leaving us with glorious gifs / memes of the carnage. (I know you’ve all seen this by now, but I’m putting this here for MY easy reference.)
Where Auntie Max said “I will not be afraid,” Cousin Angela said “I aint neva scared,” and IIIIII was here for BOTH.
Finding Richard Simmons reminded me how much IIIIIIIII am sick of white men’s shit. I loved that Katie Couric dragged the podcaster on her podcast. Newsflash folks, NO ONE OWES YOU ANYTHING!! In the words of the late great Bernie Mac on Kanye’s “Wake Up Mr. West,”
You think this shit easy, don’t you?
You think this is promised!
Well ain’t nothin’ promised to you!
Look at my face, do I got a promised face?
Does it look like I promised you anything?
LEAVE RICHARD ALONE!!!
Victoria Beckham is known as a sour faced stiff. I love seeing her be silly with James Corden and give us a little Spice Girls, COMPLETE with seat choreography. AND come through Target promotion!! Masterful.
Paisley Outake: Starbucks now has a light sugar chai 🙌🏾🙌🏾. Praise be. I love Chai Tea, but sometimes I just want spicy, not too sweet. Starbucks heard my silent cry. I will add an extra pump next time bc without the sugar its a liiiiiitle weak. But then again, every barista is different – the first one I had was great. The next one, not so much.
BITCH… in my googles for an image for the light chai I found THIS:
HOW IN THE HELL DID I MISS THIS?!?!? Haagen Dazs is bae and I try the seasonal flavors every year. (RIP my MOST favorite Coconut Macaroon) If anyone knows of a good Chai ice cream (or Coconut Macaroon ice cream), comment below or tweet us at @morebougiethanyou.
