If you’re anything like us, you’ve probably heard about all the drama brewing between radio hosts and potential reality TV stars K Foxx and Angela Yee and wondered what exactly they’re beefing about. Instead of speculating that it’s just typical crabs in a barrel mentality, we decided to go straight to the source — one of them anyway. Check out our interview with Hot 97′s K Foxx as she tells us what her real issue with Power 105 host Angela Yee is.
Well, isn’t this surprising and pretty weird.
Love & Hip Hop: NY star Erica Mena was in D.C. Friday night for a hosting gig at Bar 7. She wore a very pretty green dress that showed off her body, including what appears to be a pregnancy bump. The above Instagram picture was captioned with her saying, “Any questions?”
Actually, boo, we do have some questions and concerns.
This is the same Erica Mena who was caught getting into a huge catfight last week at a nail salon. It is pretty clear in these pictures that she and her friends are focusing our attention towards her belly which means she new she was with child whilst engaging in yet another embarrassing moment of her “losing her cool.”
This will make the second child for Erica. She has a son from a previous relationship and if you watch the show, her parenting skills have often come into question.
But here’s the really odd part: According to The YBF, her manager and onscreen boyfriend Rich Dollaz seemed to know nothing about it. When they got in touch with him about it, Rich replied:
“I don’t know about all the pregnancy rumors. Erica was posting pics on IG from Bar 7 in DC and I’m in Houston. So I guess a convo is def in order when we are back in NY.”
He also added that their on again-off again relationship is “mostly off these days.”
Now, it certainly isn’t unheard of that a relationship would be forged simply for show purposes; however, if they’ve spent any intimate time together over the past few months, there’s a chance he could be the father of this child.
So far, this sounds quite messy but seeing as though Erica appears to live for drama, this is right up her alley.
Since the show is still filming, there’s a strong possibility that we’ll see this whole pregnancy situation unfold right on the show.
Oh Love & Hip Hop, how you do go on…
It was bad enough when we thought Kenya was just a ridiculously desperate, ring-thirsty, woman code-breaking reality TV wanna be housewife, but now that we know the, apparent, actress’s getup is all for show, we have no choice but to crown her as the holder of MN’s worst week ever title.
The shade for Kenya was going to be real no matter what this week as we saw her act a plum flirtatious fool while bouncing it up on Peter in Anguilla and making several indecent proposals toward Apollo, but the RHOA newbie’s supposed man, Walter, outing their relationship as nothing but a romance for the cameras left us all dumbfounded. We weren’t shocked their relationship was fake because he actually seemed interested in her, we were floored that someone would pretend to be so crazy and man-hungry all for the sake of a check.
Things didn’t get any better when everyone pretty much dismissed Kenya’s statement that she’s embarrassed to have allowed such a deceitful and hateful man in her life and decided she’s even crazier than they first thought and they’d appreciate if she stop giving g normal single women a bad name. Let’s just say this chick is not only not making any friends, she’s also losing fans. Maybe next week will be better for her.
There comes a time in every woman’s life when there is no compromising or sheltering of herself for the sake of anyone or their feelings. It’s the time when she becomes 100% confident in who she is, where she’s been and where she is going. Her unwavering self-esteem is what makes her a true woman and armed with the tenacity to take on the world.
With that said, there a turning point in our lives when “faking” becomes foreign and being honest and real is our reality. Here are just a few things we women of a certain age (cue 30+) should never fake the funk with…
1. Your feelings – If you feel strongly about something or someone, don’t be afraid to express it. Your feelings are real and should be treated as such.
2. Your reality – There is no need to lie or “front” about what you have or don’t have as a grown woman. Accept who you are and never allow anyone to make you feel less than that.
3. A designer bag – If you can’t afford the designer bag you want at the moment accept it and move on, it’s not that serious. A woman of a certain age should not be sporting a knockoff of any kind.
4. An orgasm – If he is not pleasing you the way he should then tell him. Faking a good time will only hurt you in the long run. Be an adult and speak up!
5. Your friendships – Life is short, especially as you get older so befriending folks who you could care less about is useless and a waste of time. Not everyone is going to like you and you’re not going to like everyone either.
6. Your success- Don’t pretend to be less successful just to keep others comfortable. You worked hard to get to where you are. Don’t brag or boast just don’t belittle yourself.
7. Your past – I noted this in my last column, don’t fake your past. Accept your experiences, lessons learned, and wear them like a badge of honor.
Well…when you’re a white person who just committed a crime, it seems the trend to get out of the situation is to make up a scary black man (or two) and point the finger at him. Fail much?
That’s what a 17-year-old man thought would work after he stabbed his friend in the neck as she was sleeping. The girl, 17-year-old Jasmyn Tully of Tukwila, WA, was sleeping when her friend allegedly felt the “urge to hurt someone” according to a Tukwila detective. He tried to strangle her as she was sleeping, and when she put up a fight, he proceeded to stab her in the neck. While the young man later claimed he was high at the time and had spent a majority of the day on drugs, he initially tried to use the “blame the black man” excuse to no avail. His uncle told KOMO News the following:
“He said that he had smoked large amounts of what they call spice — I believe the name of it is K2. It’s sold at smoke shops all over the place in this state.”
Spice??? Clearly there are way too many drugs available for people to get their hands on (like the suspect) and use as an excuse for reckless behavior. Tully and the suspect were hanging out in the same home (who the actual home belongs to isn’t clear) at the same time when she fell asleep. With his urge to hurt someone, he attacked her and after the murder he cut his wrists to cover up the crime as an attack of some sort. According to the victim’s uncle, Dave Tully, “We thought she had made the turn down the right path. We had a lot of hope for her.” She was supposedly just a few days away from turning 18. Poor girl…
These type of stories are just too sad to me. If you feel the need to hurt someone, why not just hurt yourself? To attack someone in their most vulnerable state and then run around blaming a fake black man for it is just absolutely horrendous. And when did people start thinking that making up an imaginary black boogie man was acceptable? From women who are trying to avoid marriage and responsibilities and cover their own crimes (“I was kidnapped by a black man, that’s why I’ve been gone all this time!” “A black man stole my car and took my child!”), to folks like the suspect, it’s just very pathetic at this point. I guess it’s very telling that these individuals know a lot of police will believe their stories because in their eyes, violent crimes by black men are common. That’s a pretty horrible way of thinking and is all WAY too common in this country.
I don’t care how old he is or what drugs he had in his system, but they need to prosecute this young man as an adult. And they need to do something with these people who have “Blame the black man” syndrome in general to send a message. Senseless crime. Sad excuses.
