Nene On Kandi: ‘Maybe I Should Have befriended Her So I Could Walk Around All Day With Balls Stuck In My Va Jay Jay!’
So much for civility.
After Kandi cleared up all the talk about her being jealous of Nene, and on top of that two-faced, I really thought the gloves might come off and these two ladies would be able to respectfully agree to disagree on their lifestyles. But, no such chance. In fact, I think Nene may have just upped the animosity between her and her Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member with a post she recently published on her Bravo TV blog.
Speaking on some of the things that went down in Sunday night’s episode, Nene surprisingly had more negative things to say about Kandi than Kim. She wrote:
There are things that were shown in this episode that I don’t agree with. Kandi speaks negatively about me once again: lies can sometimes be damaging! Kandi has no idea who my friends are other than Cynthia, what business relationships I have, and to be honest, she doesn’t even know me that well. It’s simply human nature for two people to meet one another and not really click, but let’s not speak about things we truly have no knowledge of! Kandi can’t name one person I’ve ever befriended for a reason, because there are none. I’m the type of lady that doesn’t look for friendship. If one develops, then I welcome it. Kandi loves to say she’s been in the business for 19 years and has accomplished so much. I wonder why I didn’t befriend her. Kim befriended her for a song! Maybe I should have befriended her so I could walk around all day with balls stuck in my vagina!
In case you’re having a slow moment like I did when I first read that last line, Nene is referring to her cast member’s Bedroom Kandi balls of orgasmic pleasure.
I mean dang Nene, you may not like Kandi but that doesn’t mean she isn’t a real business woman who actually has been getting money since before anyone cared about Atlanta housewives or Bravo TV. Also, by Nene’s own admission that she doesn’t look for friendship and only welcomes ones that develop, I’m thinking Kandi has never been interested in trying to develop a friendship with her, and that is why these two aren’t cool. Come to think about it, who is Nene friends with besides Cynthia who would lick the dirt off her boots if she asked her to. It’s interesting Nene wouldn’t befriend a fellow business woman like Kandi but she and Marlo were two peas in a pod last season. Speaking of? Where is that ex-con?
What do you think about Nene’s response to Kandi?
Carefree’s latest ad campaign hasn’t been online for more than 18 hours and already people are up in arms—for no good reason. In contrast to readers here who wonder why we use the term va-jay-jay as opposed to vagina to describe female reproductive organs, some are questioning and even complaining about Carefree using the anatomically correct term for lady parts in their new ad.
The spot features a woman talking about a not-so-pleasant reality of womanhood, vaginal discharge, and blatantly says the word vagina which people have responded to almost as visceral as they would if it was the n-word. The Advertising Standards Bureau (ABS) told Ninemsn it received comments as soon as the ad went online last night and is already up to a total of five official complaints. Five may not sound like a lot but we’re talking about an ad that’s only been around for a day and the fact that we’re not just talking about clicking a thumbs down icon on YouTube, but people actually taking the time to file formal complaints with the ABS.
ABS didn’t elaborate on what it was about the use of the word “vagina” and the phrase ”vaginal discharge” that had people so upset but comments on NineMSN provide a little insight. Some women remarked:
Personally I find it unnecessary… Imagine if you will being the only female child among 3-4 brothers and only a father in the room when this add comes on, it is going to cause major embarrassment for a young girl in a scenario such as this, a little bit of foresight would be nice, seriously take the ad off.
I think these ads should be on at a more appropriate time. I don’t like my young son asking me what these products are for. I will explain it when it is age appropriate.
Were there any women in this marketing te[a]m? How the hell could people think this isn’t offensive. It’s not just the taboo around the words, it’s the demoralization of women and the fact that ads like this keep stopping women gaining respect.
Just to clarify, the ad came on well after 8:30 pm and campaign spokeswoman Debbie Selikman said the purpose of the ad was actually to eliminate the taboo the last commenter alluded to.
“It’s the first time a major brand has had the guts to use real words, not euphemisms or diminutive terms,” Ms Selikman said adding that Carefree’s research found most women wanted ads to refer to their anatomy using proper terminology and that other names for vagina typically had negative connotations and sent the message that women should be ashamed or embarrassed about their bodies.
“[This campaign] shows women have nothing to hide, nothing to be ashamed about and should be confident of their body.”
If anything, I could see the fact that the woman in the ad is naked as unnecessary but there should be nothing offensive about using the correct terms for female body parts, particularly when nearly every swear word under the sun gets the greenlight by the FCC these days. Perhaps the people who are so stirred up about this ad need to get more in touch with their own bodies.
Check out the ad here. What do you think? Is it a step in the right or the wrong direction?

Most of us can agree that Brian McKnight’s “If You’re Ready to Learn” song was… something of a fail. And the singer has heard our opinions, on Twitter, in blog posts and even reaction videos. But clearly, McKnight is not ready to put the incident behind him. Instead he recently released a video, with the help of Funny or Die, for the infamous song. Ok, so it was a parody…and just like the song, the visuals take things a lot too far. Even if the video is a spoof at the ridiculousness of this song, we know it’s really just another way to keep people talking about that song and more importantly Brian McKnight. Well, since he’s gone this far, and not releasing any other types of music, then he might as well milk this attention cow for all it’s worth. We’ve talked more about Brian McKnight these past few weeks than we have in the past few years and I’m sure that’s just the way he likes it.
Well played Brian, well played.
Check out the video and be ready to cover your mouth in horror. Keep an eye out for the vadge puppet… No, we’re not kidding. There are pubes and everything.

Spinning class may have just become a woman’s worst enemy.
More specifically, the traditional bike seat we sit on as we cycle our way through such workouts may be affecting our sexual health. Previous studies have shown that those hard seats are linked to erectile dysfunction in men, but now women are at risk, too.
Here’s the problem: When we sit on a bike seat, the nerves and blood vessels in our genital area get compressed. Researchers at Yale already knew that female cyclists had less genital sensation than female runners (based on a 2006 study). They hypothesized that these bike-riding ladies, then, thanks to the aforementioned seat design, were at risk for sexual problems.

Sometimes the hygienic things we’re told to do down there are in reality not good for our vaginal health. Here’s five things that you should avoid doing to your private parts:
1. Use Soaps With Parabens
We first want to point out that “cleaning” down there doesn’t need to be a huge process. Using harsh soaps and cleansers can disrupt your vagina’s pH level (which is naturally acidic) and cause irritation and discomfort. The vagina is a self-cleaning part of the body that does a great job at keeping things regulated.
That being said, sometimes you do want to freshen up down there. If you feel the need, just make sure the product you use is mild and paraben-free, like these Afterglow Freshening Wipes. Why paraben-free? Here’s the low-down:

Can you imagine coming up with fresh, innovative ideas for any type of feminine hygiene product? I’m sure you might be able to think of a few clever ones, but then you’d have to consider the fact that your message would need to be shown on television, possibly at times when young ones are still up and we all know how kids love to ask questions. It’s not easy. But somebody’s getting paid to do it.
So in an effort to advertise their cleansing cloths, Summer’s Eve released a series of racially-targeted commercials. In the commercials, hands of varying skin tones simulate a woman’s vagina and relay messages.
Check out what the black hand/vagina had to say…
And the Latino vagina…..
And the white vagina….
Sooo… maybe the hand/vagina thing freaked you out… or maybe you picked up on some…umm…stereotypes? Either way, let us know what you think about these commercials. Do they work or is time someone go back to the drawing board?
While you’re picking the perfect pumps to compliment your distressed skinny jeans or strapless LBD for drinks with the girls on Friday, you should be putting just as much thought into the garments going underneath them. The wrong undergarments (or the right ones worn improperly) can truly make or break your whole ensemble. Undergarments can play a big part in determining how well your clothes fit on you. They can enhance your assets or draw attention to features of your body that you may want to downplay. For example, your choice in bra can be the difference in complimentary cleavage or cups that runneth over. Use the tips below to get more intimate with your intimate apparel and make your underwear drawer as much fun to play dress up in as your closet: Read the rest of this entry »

March is all about the women. (It’s Women’s History month.) So let’s celebrate all things feminine! And what could be more feminine than our favorite friend down under…the vagina! While sometimes she’s uncooperative and gets on our nerves at least once a month there are plenty of fabulous things she does that we truly appreciate. In fact when we think about our peach, there’s so much about her that we, and the world at large, could stand to learn. So my gift to you for Women’s History month are these five surprising facts about the human vagina.
1. Your vagina can fall out of your body
What?!? Yes. The medical term is called a vaginal prolapse. There are muscles, ligaments and skin around your vagina that hold everything in place. Over time these structures can weaken or deteriorate causing the uterus, rectum, bladder and the vagina itself to fall out. That’s scary. But if your vagina tries to leave you, let her go! Doctors can give you a new one.
2. She may not like his “kids”
There’s such thing as having an allergic reaction to semen, causing your girl to swell on the outside or burn on the inside. *Shivers* Scientists are still unsure about the cause but it might have something to do with the proteins in those little swimmers.
3. Sharks and Vaginas
There’s a connection. In the vagina’s perpetual quest to keep things nice and moist down there it produces lubrication that contains squalene. This substance is also found in shark livers. Weird huh?
4. Birth control pills can be inserted vaginally to avoid side effects
If you’re daily pill has you gaining weight and feeling nauseous there’s a solution. Take it with your other mouth. Your vagina is a superhero. She can handle it. We’re not suggesting you do this…just some information.
5. Be careful, she Bites
In 2007 there was a movie called “Teeth” (Beware of the link, watching at work or in mixed company may not be so good.) that detailed the life of a girl who’s vagina had grown teeth and bit off mens’ penises if they posed some type of threat to her…or if they just pissed her off. In reality vaginas don’t have teeth, this we know, but dermoid cysts can grow teeth. And guess where dermoid cysts can grow? Anywhere… including the vagina!
Frightening…yet fascinating, right?
