I am going to be Dishing Tea on this thing with Alexus Arquette's blast of Will Smith in leiu of this whole debacle with The Oscars!  It is VERY disheartening to have a member of the LGBT community go FULL BLAST on an issue that seems to be fraudulent, but even if there is any hint of truth to it, her approach to this thing as become a thorn in my side.  I am going to tell you why so please make sure you have PLENTY of crumpets because I am about to DISH this Tea, ya heard me!!

    What Can I Do For You? A Don't Come out of a Bag, Wednesday

    in Entertainment

    Hey there Tea Sippers!  This episode is going to be a special one because I will be leaving for a little minute to have surgery.  We are going to let YOU be my Co-Host and talk about ANY and EVERYTHING right here....right NOW, BUT if you decide to come out of a bag on me, I will come out of a BIGGER bag on YOU!


    Here are a few things on my mind this week:



    Always wear your Armour?:  What is this, the pastor of the church shoots to kill during a church service in Detroit.  Is this practice acceptable?  Wait til you hear WHY the dude came for the pastor!!!

    Don't pay Taxes, but Pay FINES?:  The church seems to be under attack by the city as the "new neighbors" have file complaints against them and THE CITY responded.  Wait til your hear the reasons why...

    What happened to THE VILLAGE?: This may seem like we are going to be preaching to the choir, BUT the idea of parenting and having community seems to have become extinct like dinosoars.. How can we recapture and rebuild THE VILLAGE?  What about the image and reputation of GRANDMA/Big Mama?

    Blacks vs. Gays:  Why is it that we are at one another's throats instead of uniting in the struggle for EQUALITY??


    Plus, if time permits, we will have a few "Dear Big Meach" letters to address during the broadcast.  This is going to be a lovely ole pot of tea for your nerves, darlings so.....Make sure you have PLENTY of crumpets and tell all your friends to come on over cuz we are Dishing Tea with Big Meach

    Stupid is as Stupid Does......A Don't Come out of a Bag, Wednesday

    in Entertainment

    Greeting and Salutations Tea Sippers!!  You already know what time it is...so make sure you have your voices clear and your thoughts in order as we are going to get down to the nitty gritty and serve up some delicious crumpets to go with this hot pot of tea as YOU are my CO-HOST! That's right, it's a Don't Come out of a Bag Wednesday and the rules are simple,  We can talk about Any and Everything that is on your mind, right here.. RIGHT NOW, BUT......if you decide to come out of a bag on me, I will come out of a Bigger Bag on YOU!!  


    There has been so much going on in the world and these are a few things that are on my mind this week:



    Black Folks vs. Raven-Simone:  Why is it that people seem to feel as though she is not entitled to her opinion?  The latest thing that has everyone in an uproar is the fact she said she would discriminate against people with those "ghetto" names.  Does she have a point or was she completely wrong?
    The Confederacy vs. The NAACP:  Why is it this thing with Stone Mountain has become such a fight? Is this a distraction or does The NAACP have a leg to stand?
    On the Job Care:  Why is it considered "Solitication" to care for your co-workers during hard times and bereavement periods?
    The Black Community vs. The Gay Community:  We say we are all about the struggle for inclusion and celebrating diversity, but yet when tragedy happens, neither side comes together in solidarity to support one another's cause. Why don't we come to the aid of one another, but we insist that each side support one another. Is that right?


    ?This is going to be one ole Hot Pot of Tea for your nerves, darlings, so be sure to have plenty of crumpets and make sure you bring your friends.

    Here are a few things on my mind this week:



    The Emmy Awards:   Viola, Regina and Uzo all took that statue home!  What are you feelings about their victories? 
    The Pope:  Pope Francis and his US visit.  What are your thoughts about THIS Pope?  Do you care?
    The Fourth Friday count and The School system:  Are you making sure your children are counted so that the school systems get the governmental monies for each child?  What about when the count is over and they throw out all the students they don't seem to care for????  
    Revisiting the near assissination of  black parents by their 2 sons, they are asking for the courts to be lenient as they say "These were not our sons that did this, they we're different people"..... The ART of FORGIVENESS...is it REAL or are we wanting to buy our way into heaven

    Coming Straight Outta...... It's A Don't Come out of a Bag Wednesday

    in Entertainment

    Hey there my Tea Sippers!!  You know what time it is... It's Time for you to be my CO-HOST as we engage in another installment of Don't Come out of a Bag, Wednesday where we will talk about any and everything that is on your mind, right here, right now!!  BUT.....if you decide to come out of a bag on me, I will come out of a BIGGER bag on YOU!


    Here are a few things on my mind this time:



    Str8 Outta Compton:  Well, the movie is out, has made MEGA MILLIONS for Ice Cube and the other producers, but I want to speak about it from this perspective.....  Was it just ME or did the relationship between Easy E and Jerry Heller seem a bit "that way"??? 

    Hip Hop Music:  Since NWA has been deemed the Grandfathers of Gangsta Rap, is it fair to assume that this era of music began to determine one's masculinity?  Has being a man become dependent upon the music we listen to?

    Black Lives Matter:  WTF?? These folks are believing that Black Lives Matter is supporting HATE CRIMES and should be labeled as a HATE ORGANIZATION. Do you agree?


     


    Plus, we will have a visit from the star and producers of "Mighty Real...a Fabulous Sylvester Musical" Mr. Anthony Wayne and Kendrell Bowman as they will be blessing the ATL THIS SATURDAY for a ONE NIGHT ONLY performance of the show during Black Gay Pride weekend.

    BE the Difference not turn a BLIND EYE

    in Entertainment

    Hey there Tea Sippers! As we are ending our month long anniversary celebration, we have decided to shed some light on a subject that is often talked about on one side, maybe two, but never from the ongoing aftercare of coming out of the darkness.  As we all know, Domestic Violence or Intimate Partner Violence and Abuse is an ugly reality that many people face across the world. Women and Men who deal with this often find strength to get out of their situation and move ahead to rebuild their lives and regain their sense of self.


    My guest today is a survivor who has come out of the ugliness and shame that DV/IPVA loves to cloak its victims under.  Ms. Katrina Walker has not only shedded that very cloak, she has become a beacon of light for others who are seeking a way out of their situation. Not only she pulled herself out of the muck and mire, she has built an empire for herself where she can proclaim being a self made Millionaire!


    Join us as we Dish Tea on how to learn the steps to come out of a bad environment and situation and FLIP IT into a flourishing life of happiness and success!  This is a HOT POT of tea baby so make sure you bring PLENTY of crumpets!
