My how I love a quick read!
As observed by Brook Lynn Carter on yesterday, Vibe magazine mocked reality television queens Kandi Buruss, Tamar Braxton, Evelyn Lozada and Chrissy Lampkin on the sly by branding them as ‘Role Models’ for the cover of its annual Sexy Issue.
While many of us enjoyed the complimentary kee kee kee and tipped our hats to the magazine (whether it left a good or bad taste in your mouth, their mission in getting people talking was definitely accomplished), not everybody was laughing. Here’s a snippet from the community conversation on C+D’s Facebook profile:
“Yes. If I had a choice of being a senator or running a failing show store and running across dinner tables barefoot to attack another woman I’m obviously going for the latter. I will NEVER buy an issue of Vibe because of this.” — Marissa
On the search for her eyebrows former ‘Basketball Wives LA’ cast member Tanya Young Williams instead found her voice as a journalist.
The ex-wife of fallen NBA star Jayson Williams and sister to C+D great Norwood Young put down the bale of hay strapped to her chest and picked up a Macbook to compose a lengthy article for The Daily Beast blasting the top rated reality series and the show’s shady production practices.
Do you mind loaning me a fuck so I can give it at a later date?
My knowledge of the inner workings of Basketball Wives stems from my role as one, in the inaugural season of Basketball Wives LA. Though I was cautioned against participating in the series, my intention was to change the perception that wives of basketball players are flighty, overly emotional, and senselessly dramatic. I wanted to show interesting aspects of my life and also bring attention to the National Domestic Violence Hotline, for which I am a celebrity spokesperson. But as the proverb goes, “the road to hell is paved with good intentions.” And working on Basketball Wives was sheer hell.
This week on ‘Basketball Wives’ we saw Tami ‘Tazmanian’ Roman help Kesha Nichols get hip to the latest developments on health and social issues, because some things just can’t be learned from a textbook.
After arriving in Tahiti, Kesha has an unshakable cough that required Tami to teach her how to cover properly.
“I’m gonna have to start watching your ass because I really can’t have you just coughing out. I didn’t see no hand go up.”
Evelyn Lozada has spent so much time under Chad Ochocinco in the sheets and fighting to claim their Twitter love is real in the streets, that she is completely bamboozled by being forced to pick a book cover for her new series ‘Inner Circle.’
Need a penny for your thoughts? The good people at Baller Alert have teamed up with the reality star to give away an all ‘Evelyn Everything’ basket valued at $500 for those who help with the life altering decision.
