Nell is a retired sheep farmer who started out as a copy-holder/proofreader - materials analyst and horse breeder and so on. Nell says, the "research" simply requires a very open mind, and common sense, but I suppose it helps to be aware of one's abduction experience/s, which I am not [aware] other than the implant in my thigh, and the event which is published in quatrain 2 44 Eagle Chased Off by Other Birds (which I photographed).

Hey there Tea Sippers! We are going to take a look into the Entertainment Business from a woman's point of view. When they were last here, my sistahs, Helen Brunner and Terry Jones gave us the 4-1-1 on how is was to come into the business of SHOW and dealing with the ups and downs of dealing with record execs. Now, they are back along with the sistahs over at PhillyBass'd Records to share with us what's it like to BE the execs and how it is to create an empire from the ground up and having the power of "the sistahood" to empower their endeavors.
We will be dishing tea on how it is for women to actually exist in this business and it is real or a myth that BLACK WOMEN can not work together for long periods of time in this industry. With the onset of R&B Divas Franchise and other reality television shows that depict black women in such a horrible light, can 'the sistahood' really bounce back from such a hard blow to its fiberoptics?
Also, we will be debuting on Dishing Tea with Big Meach a new artist who I am already deeming her THIS GENERATION'S Gladys Knight.... Ms. Tati....and her hit "You Stopped" written and produced by Helen and Terry. Have your crumpets together darlings, because THIS is going to be a HOT POT of humdinger tea.
