A Black Lady’s Sketch Show… It’s a No, Sis!

If you search our social media, it’s no secret that we were super excited for A Black Lady’s Sketch Show to hit HBO. The entire team upgraded their Hulu to include HBO just for the show.

With the recent release of episode 4 we can say with certainty that the show is WACK AS FUCKKKKKK. Omg! Who the fuck is in the writers’ room?

Let’s talk:

The show is fashionably perfect. Visually appealing. And, the Melanin is poppin. However, the comedy is blah and the cohesiveness is missing. With a cast of super talented women and creative minds such as Issa Rae, Robin Thede and Lauren Ashley Smith as a Lead Writer, come on sis! This show should be knocking it out the park. Instead, we still tryna past first base.

At this point, can we get a few Wayans Brothers on the writing team? We appreciate the all female writers, but this is some bullshit!

To date, Episode 1 was the best and it has gotten worse and worse by the episode.

Have you seen it yet? If so, what’s your take?

Ed Hardy is Back

It’s been forever since we have seen some Ed Hardy, however, the collection is back on the rise. Are you here for it?

Ed Hardy has become one of the most iconic names in the tattoo and fashion world. With the brand being instantly recognizable, Ed Hardy needs no introduction. Recently Ed Hardy have had a content shoot with the help of model Bud and Aidan Williams. Going back to their roots the campaign was shot by Donald Michael Chambers who shot Ed’s first campaign. Items worn in the shoot are products from Ed’s recent Footasylum range which is now available online and in-store. As well as that they shot some of their French Licensees product to support their AW18/SS19 launch.

NotKarltonBanks 25th Birthday Celebration Recap

Can we give you the rundown on TONIGHT???

OMG! Okay. We went tot the Birthday celebration for Instagram Sensation, @NotKarltonBanks. We were so excited to go as the line up was stellar and we love Karlton.

The doors opened at 6 pm for General Admission. The show started at 7 pm. We arrived at 6:05 pm. Had to wait outside in the Georgia heat until 6:50 pm. #Strike1

As we proceed! For the past month or so, the event was advertised as follows. Pay attention to the lineup.

However, upon arrival we were made aware that Vashawn Mitchell would not be in attendance. #Strike2

Don’t know exactly what happened, but one of Karlton’s team members make it clear that it was his fault and apologized. But by this time it was 7:15 and we was already in our seats.

As the night proceeded, Lexi and The Christi Show were AMAZING Host. They kept the crowd engaged and Lexi sanggggggg her new single entitled, “In The Room,” which we all purchased while on site because she slayeddddddddddd.

In exchange for Vashawn Mitchell, Byron Cage stopped by and tore the house up. Love us some Byron, but we still wanted Vashawn.

As we were ready for LeAndria Johnson to hit the stage, we get word that she had a family emergency out of town with her brother. #Strike3

We pray her brother is well, but we were ready for her to kick them shoes off and slay us in the spirit. In her place she sent Amber Bullock from Sundays Best. Amber sang her whole heart out for the Lord and we loved it. However, we still were ready for LeAndria.

Finally, John. P. Kee hits the stage and takes us back to the 90’s and brings us all the way up to 2018 with a sneak listen of his upcoming single. He was awesome and really showed out for Atlanta.

John P. Kee three SHADE All Night Long at a certain someone and it was much needed. John spoke the TRUTH the Whole TRUTH and Noting but the TRUTH. If anyone says otherwise, they are not of God. We won’t say who or what was said. But know that after John said what he said, Vashawn took that post down that he had up trying to Shade Karlton. #Cough

We’re sure footage will be floating around of the night soon. When you see it let’s us know what you think. If you went, let us know your take and what your favorite part was.

Again, Happy Birthday to @NotKarltonBanks. Thank you for spending it in Atlanta with us.

The G Status Atl Fashion Fail!

Let’s be clear! We only went to see what Charlie Xile looks like in person and he is FINEEEEEEEEE. He is Super Gay but he is Fine. LoL!

In other Tea Spills. The cast of G-Status ATL was booked at Anchor last night. Though they are a bunch of nobodies except for Charlie Xile, they got booked. Most likely they were booked thanks to KL Allen who serves as the Executive Producer of the show. He has all the plugs.

Nonetheless, some of the cast showed up and showed out. They were in celebrity mode and looked the part except for this one boy! Let us Pray! For the life of us, we can’t figure out why they let him come in the club with them in a pair of swooshies. Yes, swooshies. Straight out of a 1996 music video. Take a look!

We told you. He looked the fools. They weren’t joggers. They weren’t sweats. They were swooshies. The pants that sound like plastic grocery store bags when you walk.

This now makes the whole cast look late as they let him sit with them while he was looking lost in time.

Movie Review “Girls Trip”

We finally had the opportunity to experience “Girls Trip” and it was PHENOMENAL. 

Best friends Ryan, Sasha, Lisa and Dina are in for the adventure of a lifetime when they travel to New Orleans for the annual Essence Festival. Along the way, they rekindle their sisterhood and rediscover their wild side by doing enough dancing, drinking, brawling and romancing to make the Big Easy blush.

We walked into the film expecting to laugh through the entire movie and have an entertaining experience. However, upon completion of the film, you realize that there is a story amongst the humor and even deeper, a form of self realization within the story. 

Jada Pinkett Smith

We all know Girls Trip is based on 4 girlfriends taking a trip to the Essence Festival in the hopes of reconnecting and fixing their strained relationship. During this trip, you begin to learn each member of the group and you subconsciously start to place your friends into their roles. 

For those who haven’t seen it, we strongly suggest you do, however, we won’t give it all away, during the comedy there are some hurdles that each character experiences. These hurdles begin to cause you to realize which girl you relate the most to. Furthermore, you begin to ask yourself, “what would I do?”

From the Nights out on the town, to the intimate conversations in bed, this film has something for everyone. Male and Female.

Now! Let’s get into the film as a whole:

Story- 9/10

Fashion- 10/10

Eye candy- 10/10

Laughter- 10/10

Relateability- 10/10

Acting- 10/10
