A few years ago, I moved to Atlanta, GA. At the time, I was stuck in Washington, D.C., unsure of my next move, and tired of the same old same. Rent was too damn high, and the money wasn’t coming in fast enough. Like many young, Black people with a dollar and a dream, I viewed Atlanta as the Mecca-a place I could go to fulfill my dreams. And for me, it turned out that was true.That was back in 2013.
Today, like most days, a debate broke out on Twitter. This time, we weren’t arguing about child support, $200 dates, or what it means to be a ho. No, today, ladies and gentlemen, we were fighting about who’s better-80’s or 90’s babies.
Well it looks like the smoke may be clearing among the hair divas in the ATL, but let’s not speak too soon. Something tells me that the ladies aren’t going to be able to keep it classy that much longer.
“I was like, ‘Whatever,'” Lochte told a reporter as he recounted the alleged robbery that he and his teammates had just experienced. He told the “thieves” who’d demanded that he get on the ground, that he wasn’t going to-he “didn’t do anything wrong.” A gun was pointed at his head. In the days that followed, several media outlets put out stories about how this “brazen” robbery had “shaken” the Olympic community. Most of us were willing to take the story at face value. After all, we had no reason to think he’d lie. Lochte’s a U.S. Olympian who had just won gold-no way he’d stretch the truth. Right?
We’re four episodes into the second season of Cutting it in the ATL, and it doesn’t look like these girls are going to play nice anytime soon. I had hope that eventually, the women would come to their senses, and figure out a way to make money TOGETHER, but then I remembered that with this group, “All is fair in hair and war.”
Last week, the rapper formerly known as Bow Wow made what I assume he thought would be an earth shattering announcement-he was leaving the rap game for good. And while Bow Wow may have actually been really upset and emotional about the whole thing, most of us found the “breaking news” to be quite comical.
I am so excited to be covering Cocktails with Claire Sulmers & Miss Diddy this weekend, here in Atlanta! These girls are doing big things, and they have been for awhile now. Sulmers, who is a Harvard graduate, and is fluent in French, has an AMAZING resume. You can read it here. Miss Diddy is equally impressive, a self made woman, who happens to be the ONLY woman party promoter in Hollywood. She is also a Hennessy (my favorite drink) Key Account Manager.
And while these ladies live two different lives on two different coasts, they both have one very important thing in common–fashion. They are INCREDIBLY fashionable.
