DryerBuzz Entertainment Buzz — Commentary with Yalanda P Lattimore, editor DryerBuzz.com
It’s time to get the buzz from DryerBuzz.com — MiMi Faust Screws Entire Lineage — let’s get it buzzing… Let’s get to the root of the story — the consequences.
Mimi Faust had a slight chance to be a different woman. She could have gone hard for her family but instead she went hardcore and screwed her entire lineage. Her family tree lost another branch, leaving her daughter, and daughter’s daughters to come out on a limb.
We all know reality women use platforms of their respective shows to push product, but hardcore porn. She’s not the first, won’t be the last, but let’s call it what it is and not be shady about it. It’s sad. Young people today have enough problems deciphering between right and wrong, negative and positive, and what’s dignified. This is wrong. Certainly not positive and there’s nothing dignified about it. This is a woman absolutely turned out. Come for me if you want to… but it’s wrong. What even worst, MiMi’s arch nemesis, Ms Joseline became so enraged in jealousy that she filled her social media timeline with her own nude pictures — really?? #traumatizedorphans
Ms Joselines loves to say us older chicks need to school some young chicks, well here you go…
We already told you, reality TV banks on men and women with #failedmatriarchs — no mothers or decent parenting. Go down the list if you will. This game is calculated and it will impact future generations. Both MiMi and Joseline, soon to re-enter space of television in the 3rd season of a reality show called Love & HipHop Atlanta. Did no one trademark hip hop and have power to stop such a degrading generation from using phrase to describe such the iconic culture. As a woman born with hip hop, I remember women going hard but hard core. Hip Hop is running politics, in the white house, making change under gold domes all across the country. We’re teachers, mothers, hell grandmothers — I guess that’s why they’re calling MiMi trist in front of the camera — granny porn. Girl what are you doing?
No more motivational appearances for MiMi. Her calendar will no doubt fill up with porn conventions. She might cash a few checks — but what’s most important — she didn’t break the cycle of failed matriarch and may have created yet another traumatized orphan in her family tree. Though she may not have abandon her daughter literally — she’s forced her daughter and her entire lineage to shade another branch on the family.
This is a woman turned out — no doubt. All jokes aside… hang that from your shower rod and wait for dignity. #HairSheBuzz

I need just a little more Jesus may be title of Erica Campbell’s solitary debut, but can Tina get some of that Jesus.

Whether it’s work alcoholic Erica Campbell trying to be sexy and saved hitting the stage alone with new album and solo career or Tina OMG — leaving the stage and showing rage over admission of affairs committed by her husband — these Mary’s have turned the page — They need just a little more Jesus. We thought the affairs would be just a sidebar to the show, but the couple’s battle to reclaim or dissolve their union has taken over the hearts and timelines of viewers – it’s hot so watch and weigh in on Mary Mary Thursday before Scandal — it’s all the buzz #HairSheBuzz

Her site quickly went into over capacity. Another post was simply about a ringtone on her daughter’s phone.

Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker are officially man and wife. The pair tied the knot in front offamily and friends in Atlanta Friday evening, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star reveals. http://kandionline.com/

For those who think Scandal is too scandalous and they are not trying to be Mary Jane and want a better more powerful image of women on TV, here comes a woman with higher power — From Shadow and Act, our inside source to Cinema of the African Diaspora, Alfre Woodard set to play the POTUS – president of the United States in NBC Drama ‘State of Affairs.’ Described as “Scandal meets West Wing,” only stereotype we can find thus far is that POTUS son is deceased yet linked romantically to Katherine Heigl’s character — a CIA officer. Read between the lines. Woodard is known to wait for a role of dignity, so we anxiously await the pilot. Audiences are known to demand better but not necessarily support the best. Can Alfre Woodard and Katherine Heigl take over tv timelines. We’ll see #HairSheBuzz

I can remember the first day my son, my youngest, let me sleep in. He decided to wake himself. Dress himself. Get himself to the bus and to school without my help. After waking to the sound of the wheels on the bus going round and round, I rushed to his room only to discover he was on that bus without his mother’s help. I worried all day about what he wore. What if something happened and I didn’t know how to describe him. Mother’s do that. Although he was ready for independence, I wasn’t. Still am not.
Years of lying in that space half asleep half awake, waiting for kids 3 and 4 to pounce on my bed begging for and debating their favorite breakfast items are gone. Days waking in a panic to half the day gone because it’s more fun to “let mommy sleep,” which I have heard several times echoing in hall from kids 1 and 2, keeping 3 and 4 in step. They so enjoyed their independence. As long as I didn’t smell smoke, I enjoyed the sleep.
At this age, kids long since independent, sleep is prescribed. Energy once reserved for the kids went into blogging, business building for DryerBuzz. Two hours of sleep once again became the norm. Power naps here or there — thought i was good to go. NOT!
If forty is fabulous then fifty is disease or shall we say chronic disease prevention. Hence my fascination with sleep. With AARP stalking me on Facebook, I’ve begun the descent into 50. Time to sleep. No more all night editing sessions. While we’re cutting out things, scratch off after parties, egg yolks, milk, white potatoes — the list goes on and on — especially if you want to ascend into 50 and not descend.
From psychologytoday.com, in Women: Poor Sleep, Inflammation, and Heart Disease: “Getting enough sleep on a regular basis is one important way to protect the health of your heart. Poor and insufficient sleep is associated with a range of cardiovascular problems, including high blood pressure, heart attack, and heart failure. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, and is more deadly than all forms of cancer combined.” Pardon me while I take a nap.
After getting all this new and prescribed good sleep, what’s the first thing to do when waking up — drink water. Sleep and water. Two things abundantly available but much deprived. The latest trend and happy life tip is to drink water upon waking. Wake. Water. I can remember that. Surely, I’ve got time to stop and drink water. Of course I do now that I’m on morning medication — as I ascend into 50. Late night visit to hospital with chest and arm pain; three Nitroglycerin tablets; an overnight stay; and stress test later — I’m sleeping and drinking water. No argument from me.
Sleep, water and one more thing — love. To live is to love yourself before others. Loving self first is not a selfish act. Won’t be here to love others if we don’t take care ourselves. Dealing with consequences of being sleep and water deprived, I discovered more about love than I knew. From family staking out emergency room with me to true friends shining through timelines offering care and concern. Of course we all make those early promises to do better. Here I sit blogging though I promised to do it less. But storytelling is one of my loves. I promise to blog only after I’ve had enough sleep and water. There’s lots of love to give and receive. I really like the receiving part. Sips water. Nestles snug in bed. #HairSheBuzz

Hair She Buzz: Sheryl Sandberg leans in on #BanBossy | NeNe Leakes wiggles into #DWTS | DryerBuzz celebrates #12YearsofBuzz
March 12, 2014
DryerBuzz.com Entertainment Report ~ Hair She Buzz edition – Women Creating Buzz this week
Sticks and stones may break our bones, but words will never hurt us. Well… that’s what we used to think. Turns our words are very powerful. It’s lonely at the top. So lonely, when Sheryl Sandberg reached the top and looked around for other women, she found she was leaning in alone. Do women and girls want to be like more than they want to be leaders. Like — Lead — hmmm. Which are you? #HairShebuzz #BanBossy
Sheryl Sandberg is leaning in on bossy — the other B word women and girls are called when they show initiative, assertiveness, and leadership skills. She’s solicited some friends also alone at the top of their game to help. In the midst of promoting drankin and leaving all to wonder about her latest album, Beyonce joins the campaign to #BanBossy. In her promo for Sandberg’s effort, Beyonce says she’s not bossy, but she’s the boss.
It’s lonely at the top because apparently somewhere in middle school, girls fall prey to being liked versus being leaders — even though girls are obviously educated through school systems mostly run by women — yet #banbossy campaign says our daughter lose their leadership skills in these school. Is banning bossy the answer? Does taking away a word help? Media being the greatest influence, we know campaigns like this can make a difference– for a generation. If giving the chance, women and girls will lead — often with greater vision. Hence the proverb, educate a woman; you educate a generation.’ – Let’s get it trending #banbossy #hairshebuzz
Speaking of bossy women, Real housewives of Atlanta’s NeNe Leakes has found her next check – bet! Leakes wiggled her way onto Dancing with the Stars. Towering over competition, can the reality star keep step? She joins some surprising cast mates including EMMA SLATER, BILLY DEE WILLIAMS, DANICA MCKELLAR, two Olympic Gold Medalists, a game show host, a swimming legend and a teen pop star. the two-hour season premiere of “Dancing with the Stars,” airs MONDAY, MARCH 17 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET) on the ABC. Bet your bottom dollar, we’ll be watching NeNe #HairSheBuzz
By the time you share post, DryerBuzz.com will celebrate yet another milestone. The buzz is turning 12 and kicking off our 12th season in style. Twelve years ago, we just wanted to buzz about Atlanta. Soon after we launched, the world of blogging took off and it was time to not only entertain — but to become the voice of.. to blog is to be the voice of… we certainly found our voice — not just for Atlanta, but LIVE atlanta — living Atlanta style stage by stage.

We filled our streams with culture and buzz like none other staying ahead of the game to winning awards and making history. Our reputation became our brand. So from Women’s history month 2002 to making history in 2014 — we’re still looking ahead and buzzing all the way. #HairSheBuzz Happy Anniversary DryerBuzz.com.
