Hair She Buzz | Watch Cookie SNL Sesame Street | Taraji P Henson

April 12, 2015

Hair She Buzz — Yes I gave in and turned to SNL just in time to catch this hilarious clip of Taraji P Henson as Cookie visiting Sesame Street.  Still wonder what, historically, SNL has done for #BlackGirls.  Kerry Washington appeared on the show and Scandal hasn’t been the same since.  But that’s just me.

Hair She Buzz | The Talk: Do you have to be so mediocre? We’re in trouble Olivia(s) and headed for #Scandal

April 12, 2015

Hair She Buzz — A best moment from Scandal begs the question, do you have to be so mediocre?”  “Brilliance in writing from Shonda Rhimes and Scandal crew.  One of many amazing hair raising thought provoking scenes from Joe Morton as Daddy Pope (Rowan Pope). But is it a question coming up too often today as women digress from progress fighting to stay relevant?

“You could have aimed for Chief of Staff or Secretary of State!” That moment light bulb went off for some and others were left in the dark — still dreaming of being first lady.  What? You mean a woman could aspire to be more? Doh!

As a mother, blogger, author, radio host, most of my days and nights are spent inspiring women (and men) to aspire for more. Set their bars for greatness.  Everyday, inbox filled with how to questions.  This clip from Scandal, will save me from repeating myself.

In every reply I’m going to post a link and await response. It will regularly rotate in my social streams, embedding itself in minds of followers.

Love watching light bulbs illuminate where there was once darkness.  For as long as I can stand, I’m going to play it for myself, until mediocre is no longer an option and it has become natural, indigenous to elevate every thought, wish, desire, accomplishment.

“You’ve gotten yourself in a bit of trouble Oliva(s). I’m here to fix it!”

Are you done with your mediocre moments? Light bulb illuminated? Are shall I play it again?

Truth be told, great moments like these have left Scandal as Olivia (Kerry Washington) fights to find her way back to center stage. Are you done with your own mediocre moments? Light bulb illuminated? Or shall I play it again?

The Clippings | Social Mobs Taking Toll on Talk Show Hosts? | Women from The Real share stories of online bullying

March 25, 2015

The Clippings — Commenting on television shows became the trend in social media.  Some shows enjoy engaging viewers in real time — others not so much.  In too many cases, bad outweighs the good — retweeted again and again.  How does one block out bad and enjoy the good?

Speaking of blocked — we found ourselves blocked by certain celebrities.  A tweet retweeted can take over a timeline, depending on how notifications are set.  Surely, we’ve never said anything along lines of bullying — stated the obvious a time or two, but not bullying.

But what about social mobs? Their comments can be hurtful.  Hurt people hurt people.  There’s something more to mob engagement that goes beyond entertainment and engagement. Social media has become a large part of media and therefore carries great power of perception.  Power in the wrong hands can be damaging — and down right bullying.

tamar braxton herbert bullying the real

The ladies of The Real – Tamar Braxton, Tamera Mowry-Housley, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Adrienne Bailon — shared their experience with bullies in their following.  Watch

Everybody knows #weliveinpublic, but dealing with today’s public takes thicker skin more than ever before. It was painful to see Tamara say she hasn’t yet discovered advice for her son in dealing with bullying because she still experiences.

Where do we draw the line? When does opinions and being opinionated move from engaging dialogue to bullying? Answer — when it becomes personal, aggressive, repetitive with intent to hurt.

In good television engagement some aspects are off limits. Comments should be kept within context of the show.  Wardrobe and styling always up for grabs. Comment on content in context to what is airing. Children are always off limits, while parenting can get called into questions — only since celebrities drag their families into show business when selling magazines and products.

For celebrities, fans don’t know what you don’t show. Don’t put entire life up for discussion.  Keep something for yourself — off limits and off TV. Otherwise, be prepared to be scrutinized.  Social mobs will only get worse as #weliveinpublic.

Should celebs callout bullies, fake accounts, pages, and fans who go to far?

PS: Don’t sweat the small stuff.  Remember we said a couple celebrities blocked us.  Two mean girls and a political bully don’t count #LOL.

Hair She Buzz | Fans Split on Halle as Angela Davis

March 1, 2015

Hair She Buzz — It’s past time for Halle to burst on the screen again — in a role we can get with — recent films excluded. How about as political activist, writer, and educator Angela Davis?  A story placed on back burner for far too long, it’s time — as Davis is now 71.  Surely America’s fear has subsided. Some fans say Halle could pull off the role with her history as Dorothy Dandridge, while other’s say no with little explanation.  What say you?  See story buzzing below and comment.

February 28, 2015

Hair She Buzz — We wondered how soon #Empire would enter into beef between Lee Daniels and Mo’Nique.  While we thought this was some Oscars fallout, tantrum by Daniels, or just venting by Mo’Nique as an previous Oscar winner, turns out the rift runs deep.  But, Mo’Nique as Cookie on our beloved #Empire? Nobody saw that coming and this was the reaction from friends and followers when we shared the entertainment news clip below.
