Thugs and the Women who Love Em

Lets get into it. Another day on the celebrity circuit and we are hit with a new play filled with has beens, was beens, and ain’t beens!

Thugs and the Women who Love Em

Where do you go when the hood is all you know? That’s the question facing four friends as they navigate the sex and crime filled streets of the only home they’ve ever known.

Lisa wants out, desperately. Not just out of her neighborhood but away from the men that rule it. She’s had enough of the hustlers and pimps and drug dealers who offer nothing but short term pleasure…and long term pain.
Shawn? Please…she ain’t goin nowhere. The hood is where Shawn belongs and she’s definitely not afraid to show it. She runs game with the best of em and is quick to take advantage of any hustler who makes the mistake of thinking she can be played.
Kelly and Candace are tired of the hustlers and the thugs and all of the drama they bring. What they can’t let go of is the way these dudes put it down in the bedroom. They call it “Thug Love” and the two of them can’t get enough.
Four different perspectives from four extraordinary women who’ve built a sisterhood through some very difficult times. Now, one by one, each of them will be asked to choose between the men they love and the life they want. Are they really four strong, independent, black women ready to write their own story and be the stars of their own lives? Or are they destined forever to be nothing more than co-stars in somebody else’s script…nothing more than Thugs and the Women Who Love Them.

No shade, the cast isn’t the worse, we just don’t know how we feel about these individuals on stage. This could have possibly been better in a film format. Nevertheless, will you be going?

Humanitarian Award Winner: K. Michelle Claps Back. 

Today in Atlanta, K. Michelle hit the main stage to perform as a part of the Black Gay Pride Festivities. Upon her arrival on stage she was presented with a humanitarian award. Upon her acceptance speech, K. Michelle executed her engagement with the fans and a mini concert with some fan favs from her musical catalog.

As we know, everything that glitters isn’t Gold. So let’s talk! K posted a visual with reference to her award and was met with inquiry from a fan. 

In traditional K. Michelle style, she went back to her Memphis roots and got brawlic.

Booker’s, let’s talk for a moment. Based on the definition, a HUMANITARIAN is as follows:

hu·man·i·tar·i·an (h)yo͞oˌmanəˈterēən/


  1. concerned with or seeking to promote human welfare.”groups sending humanitarian aid”
  2. synonyms: compassionate, humane


  1. a person who seeks to promote human welfare; a philanthropist.
  2. synonyms: philanthropist, altruist, benefactor, patron, social reformer, good Samaritan;

Though we may not know all that K. Michelle does when the cameras aren’t around, the fact still remains that her brand has been tarnished with alleged hatersaion, lies, and social media wars. With this is it not understandable for one to make the inquiry of why SHE of all people would receive the Humanitarian award. Instead of taking the high rode she slips back into her Gay Boy Mode and attempts to read for Filth! K, no shade Ma but have SEVERAL. 

In any case, we don’t blame K. Michelle, she’s just the recipient. Blame it on the powers that be who chose her. No Shade, but these are the same ones that got Erica Mena and MiMi Faust to come out today and present the award to Freddy O. as well!!!!!! 

Really??? We infer the only pre-requisite to qualify is to be a Messy Queen! #TSB. 

Tell us what you think Booker’s. Soundoff!

The Legend: Coko of SWV vs. The KNOT: K. Michael


Now listen, we all know that here at TrueSlamBook we keep it 100. It’s no secret that recently on the BET Awards Tamar Braxton and K. Michael joined Patti LaBelle for a performance. Babeeeeeeeeeeee! The read is, Tamar came out looking like Champagne Cola on Coke. K. Michael started out doing a Burlesque Class then went in back and got ready for the Inaugural Ball with that UGLY Olive Green dress on. Now, as if that wasn’t enough, the Notes were all WRONG…. Chile, had Mother Patti not come out when she did the performance would have been a PURE T BUST.

Meanwhile in Twitterville, the fans were very vocal of their disappointment with the performance. Of course it’s only fitting that they reach out to a Legend to save the day. This is where it gets good. Follow me, Legendary Bad Bich Cheryl ‘Coko’ Clemons of SWV was on Twitter and hear the cries of her fans. Being the interactive celebrity that she is she decided to do a few RTs and provide a few “LoL” emoji’s. In case you missed it, it looked a little something like this:

@Only1Coko RT @Undefined_CHELE: And I love K Michelle but know your damn range and limit… If you not KeKe or @Only1Coko don’t sing that song. Except in the shower”

 Haaaaaaaaaa My Lord!!!!! where is or Patti or If Only You Knew” 

Jun 28  wowwww I was just think the same exact thinggggg

 Where’s ?!?! I can’t with these notes!! Jesus!!”

You get the point. Coko is at home minding her saved business and the fans are reaching out for assistance. Meanwhile in KNOTville, K. Michael Tweets,

 Coko but they didn’t ask you or your chopped teeth to perform. Your at home. Stop trying it. Love wins”

Followed by,

K. Michelle @kmichelle I’m sorry I’m cracking jokes, I’m drinking”

Sooooooooooooooooooooo, she’s buck. Now we all know in the Game of Fame you NEVER come for a Legend. Babeeeeeee, when I tell you Coko shut it down in the most astut manner. She simply tweeted,

I am Coko! @Only1Coko Anywho, time to pack! Back on the road tomorrow!!
Yes GAWD Legendary Tees. You betta come thru serving her 23 years and counting. While she 23 months and trying to hold on! Now you know it wouldn’t stop there. I head over to Instagram to post my pics from the BET Awards and Babeeeeeeeeeeeeee. The Tee got Real:

It was at this moment that the game had to change.

Funny how a Song Title can fit a Situation YEARS Later!!!!!!

Why is K. Mess up here acting like she forgot her mouth use to look like how much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood? Furthermore, she looked like she was going to bust out of that olive green monstrosity she called a dress with all that pumped body. Chile, please. Never come for the one who made your dreams possible. Don’t make me call Memph……. I digress…….. One thing to remember, Coko ain;t been SAVED all her LIFE…… She Reads for FILTH………

On another note, Did you see Lil Kim Slay the Stage????? Legends Always WIN…..
