The ladies of elite black hollywood have packed their duffle bags and headed to Miami for a powerful, inspiration laced lady boss event hosted by NeNe Leakes and Wendy Williams. Their goal is to attract like minded, female entrepreneurs who are doing their thang. Initially, it was planned as just a girls trip for Nene and Wendy, but then Nene became inspired to turn into a whole women empowerment weekend.
Leakes says the event is for women who are already “eating the fruits of their labor. Living that life and wanna connect with other women who can do some of the same things they can do with the same mind set.”
Trina took to her instagram to show her arriving to the event.
Yaaasssss Lizzo does it again. She is on the cover of Vogues second December issue. The ‘Imma Marry My Damn Self’ icon opens up about anxiety, representation and the power of persistence.
When Lizzo was a little girl, she really looked up and idolized Matilda, the little girl who was treated poorly by her family, but she was a special and had super psychic powers. She used this power to overturn her bullies, including her parents and brother who taunted and neglected her, even as a kid.
Now, a whole grown ass woman, Lizzo has tapped into some power of her own. That powerful stage presence demolishes the naysayers and negative blocks she encountered as a kid. “When I get really, really anxious before a show, I just go harder and harder and harder when I’m performing and I just go crazy,” she says. “I don’t know why, but my anxiety asometimes fuels who I am as a performer and who I am as an artist – and I know that is not the case for everyone. I don’t know if my body just, like, out of a desperate need to find a place for my anxiety or find a use for it, takes it and puts it there”.
Porsha William’s fans were very well pleased with her surprise announcement that she was launching a collaboration with Just Fab. It involves a cool line of boots, and it seems that Shamea Morton also made sure to get a pair. Here are just a few of the trendy shoes she has available for purchase, ranging to about $65 bucks max a pair.
She promoted the shoes on social media, and Porsha couldn’t resist but to show her on again off again BFF some love.
‘😂🔥❤️ Thank you, sis @shameamorton!! I’m glad you love my new collection with @justfabonline 😘😘 * Link in Bio ” “Georgia Collection”🍑’ Porsha said in her post.
One fan said, “Let me go reactivate my account”. Another commented, “This was intense”.
Someone else said, “Got mine today…black boots with gold buckle”.
Hmmm…sounds like this might be a nice buy, especially with the weather changing now. It is boot season.
In other news in Porsha’s life, she made quite an unexpected move. She decided to spill all the tea on the reports that her fiance, Dennis McKinney, cheated on her. Porsha, who welcomed adorable baby girl Pilar Jhena not long ago, also went through the pain of splitting from Dennis publicly. However, they are currently surpassing all the BS from the past and moving forward, claiming they are in love now than ever before.
Sometimes, even after our loved ones are gone away from here, there are secrets and skeltons that still live on until we bury them. Whitney Houston was America’s princess and one of the world’s most talented female voacalist.
Growing up, Whitney Houston didn’t have many friends and it wasn’t all that easy for her to make friends. She was teased a lot and bullied by other girls. She has shared on numerous occasions how girls were just flat out mean to her. But she found a friend, a saviour almost…in Robyn Crawford. Robyn was not only Whitney’s closest friend, but she was her body guard at times, handled her bookkeeping, and assisted her with the many duties of managing to be a star. As a matter of fact, from the moment Crawford, then 19, first saw Whitney (then almost 17) in 1980 when they were both counselors at an East Orange, New Jersey summer camp, she told her, “I’m going to look out for you.” And that’s exactly what she did for the next two decades as Whitney climbed the ladder to stardom.
“We wanted to be together,” says Crawford, “and that meant just us.” Whitney ended the physical part of their relationship, soon after she signed a record deal with Clive Davis at Arista. The singer broke the news by giving Crawford a gift of a slate blue Bible one day in 1982.”She said we shouldn’t be physical anymore”, “because it would make our journey even more difficult.”
“She said if people find out about us, they would use this against us,” says Crawford, “and back in the 80’s that’s how it felt.”
And so, she says, “I kept it safe. I found comfort in my silence.” “I wanted to lift her legacy, give her respect and share the story of who she was before the fame, and in that, to embrace our friendship,” said Crawford.
Bobby Brown, Houston’s ex husband told US Weekly in 2018 that Whitney was bisexual, and that she and Crawford carried on a same sex relationship for years behind closed doors. But Houston was afraid of judgement from her fans, and society, period if she came out with her truth. She also endured judgement from her mom, Cissy Houston, telling her occassionally that it wasn’t natural for women just to be that close.
Consequently, Houston and Crawford denied their relationship and the rumors…until now. The memoir is available currently, published by Penguin Random House.
