On Saturday, I accompanied AG Entertainment’s Alex Gidewon to the Sprite Step Off Challenge at the Civic Center. The best part of the evening for me was the car ride there and back. We pulled up to the Civic Center in a CL65 AMG with a turbocharged V12 engine that reached top speeds in 6 seconds. The car took my breath away. All I can say is I want one!

Anyway, step show host Ryan Cameron (WVEE) said “Steppin’ is for erybody.” Well, it’s not for me. I was bored out of my skull for the 50+ minutes that we were there. Back in my college days, steppin’ was an entirely different art form than what you see today. Now it’s more lights, cameras and action than fancy footwork mixed with military precision.

So is it any wonder that an all white girl crew from Arkansas took 1st place in the majority black competition? The women from Zeta Tau Alpha’s Epsilon chapter electrified the crowd with a dazzling step routine that clocked in at just under 9 minutes. They won cash scholarships and other prizes. MTV2 will air the step show at 3 pm on February 28 and March 7.

    were having a step show here next week. i sooooo wanna go, but im too old to be hanging around a bunch of college and higshcool kids. lol

    I’m so over step shows, I’ve been going to them since before I could talk. But congrats to the winners although I’ve never heard of them.

  • Khunfuzion

    No one is orginal any more. I see “signature” steps from other fraternities and sororities in their routine. I guess that’s the new way now. Not something you would so boldly do back in the day! Times they are a’changing.

  • sharnell

    sandra, i’m with you. that is all!

  • SouthernPrincess

    I am in a sorority and I am so over step shows it not even funny. I don’t even go to them anymore. They have become so boring

  • ohpretty1

    They didn’t do bad at all. But if this is first place, everyone else was half-stepping for real.
    @Khunfuzion – Yes the “signature” steps were a :nono:

    I’m trying out for a grad chapter, but I can’t step to save my sad soul. I’m extra embarrassed that the sisters snow can work it better than me! LOL, no shade, they were good. VI, dude, why did you leave Facebook? You were so fun to talk to, then you just bounced. Dead @ you for “make your Black boyfriends proud”!

  • http://charactercorner.blogspot.com attorneymom

    I am an AKA and I can’t step at all. But those white girls did the darn thing. Stepping ain’t easy. I was really upset that some white girls could step better than the Black Sororities until ATLien sent me a video of my Sorors winning the step show at Chicago Sprite Stepoff. Click my screen name to see do Sorors do their thing. I see now that the white girls of Tau Zeta Alpha stole their look and just added a jackets. Hmmm.

    when I was in H.S. @ the age 16 my high school held college step-shows plus my lil azz was going to step-shows in different cities and while I was in college.. And now my younger sister is into that ish and she wants me to attend a step-show with her but I just cant anymore Im so over that ish!

  • FloridaChick813

    Ahhhh, I remember my days of stepping in high school.. I will say this though, its a lot harder then it looks.

  • commonswifey

    They were ok but I’m not impressed when people steal almost the whole routine

  • KaraZ

    I swear I’ve seen most of this routine before from a Delta, AKA and Zeta step team up north, even the matrix inspired theme…

    And if they won with this routine… well everyone must have really sucked or the “white girl” novelty factor really helped them out. I mean the lack of precision is evident. Who judged this show? Or how bad were the other teams?

  • http://dahoneyhive.blogspot.com ryand91

    @ mizzdallas yeah they were so much fun for me until this year when I came to college and then I was like wow, it’s all the same stuff year after year. Now I realize it’s almost an exclusively Greek thing, and I’m not Greek, so I’m like whatever..

  • Adair

    I agree with everybody else! Step shows have lost it originality. The last step show I went to I thought I was at a dance competition b/c that’s all the groups did (dance). I was soo upset that I wasted my money! Me and my Sorors left that mess. Now, they be having mini step shows called Stroll Off. Those suck too!

  • Lovely One

    @ KaraZ Says

    Maybe the step team won to make a better MTV special. MTV has aired a “step show” before. One of the stepper groups were Hispanic and they highlighted them winning a bid to nationals. This is not far fetched for MTV. Just sayin’

  • Ms.kaylamomma

    Sandra, as much as you SAY you are going out to events and parties, I can’t believe no one has snapped a current picture of you? Do you disguise yourself?

    ————————————————————

    I think you’re right… because these chicks were all over the place and I can’t fathom that there wasn’t a team that was more put together. It could be the video quality, but you can barely hear them, but you do hear a bunch of feet hitting the floor at different times and two people always clappint after everyone else is done. I haven’t been to a step show since 04 or so, but damn if they’ve deteriorated to this, no wonder nobody bothers me with them.

  • MIZZ.I_REP_ATL

    Damn, I can’t c the video!!!!!! At work, ugh!!!

  • Shauny

    I watched 2 episodes on this from MTV and I remember all of the other sororities saying that the above girls were mostly previous members of the other fraternities and they join, steal their moves then pledge at the above fraternity. I thought they were joking but I guess they weren’t. Congrats for being unoriginal… :shrug:

  • Cinderella

    Morning everybody. A friend of mine went to the step show and said that Zeta Tau Alpha was alright. They were coached by the AKA’s at their school. He said the TAU chapter of AKA should have won.

  • PAHairston

    Hello All. White folks seem to emulate everything we do.

  • M3z

    @ Cinderella I wonder why those AKA’s didn’t step, all that work and not even a scrap from the check.

    I agree with everyone; I noticed the change in step shows when I was in college. We would step our Azz off and that wasn’t enough b/c folks wanted dancing and a production. The good old days of greek life has bypassed us!

  • http://myspace.com/amax79 AKAtastrophy1908

    This was done for TV purposes. Even stepping has become commercial.

  • http://myspace.com/thegameoncw Bird

    I must say that I have not been to a step show in many years, but one of my former co-workers went to the show one year during the CIAA tournament here in Charlotte and she said that the frats and sorors had fallen off big time. Like you she said she was bored. I wonder what’s up with that. Maybe they need to look at some old tape or something because step shows used to be OFF THE CHAIN. Or maybe they can just study these white girls because they’ve obviously done their homework. We can’t be mad when others beat us at our own game when we are not willing to leave it all out there. Just being cute and wearing cute outfits will not suffice.

    I also heard that the TAU chapter of AKA were robbed all because of the novelty effect of white girls getting out there and emulating black girls. I have seen the youtube video of the AKA performance from that night and I have to say that they were alot better than these girls. They did come in 2nd place, but you know how that goes…it was sponsored by sprite and will air on MTV.

    :cosign and :preach: we can’t have our men, our music, our lips, our arses, our food, our sons, our history, OR our culture.LOL…but sadly, we are partially to blame, black people as a whole are too trusting and we want so bad to be accepted, that we SHARE alot of trade secrets about ourselves and our culture, it is not that it is stolen per se’, but we give away a lot of our culture in order to be accepted. We get so happy that the “white” man is approving and validating something about us that we hand it RIGHT over too them and tell them EVERYTHING and TEACH them everything we know about it when nine times out of ten all they [big business] do with it is take it, and rape it for finacial profit in which we never see the benefit or the finacial gain in the black community; on the CONTRARY they make us PAY for what is historically ours… so yes, while some things are actually STOLEN we GIVE alot of ourselves away as well, case in point, I am sure these girls that won probably were coached and trained by a black step team or black people. That’s one thing I admire about the Asians, they don’t give up shyt to NOBODY…they ain’t telling you the ingredients too their hot and sour soup, they ain’t telling you their distributors/connects so you can pay 10.00 for a lace wig like they do instead of 500.00, these asian women ain’t sharing their freaky deaky trade secrets [and TRUST they got some]… and we black people as a culture need to start being the same way. I am not saying to be racist etc., but we need to stop being so eager to SHARE EVERYTHING..especially those things that make us the unique people that we are like stepping.

  • http://twitter.com/Q_ATLANTIS Q_ATLANTIS

    I watched the video and I wasnt impressed. As a HBCU alumn, I’ve seen better. Perhaps it was the Sprite/MTV effect that caused them to win.

    I did attend FVSU’s 2009 step show and liked it. However, I sat in the nose-bleed section AWAY from the kiddies.

  • Shauny

    I remember seeing the MTV show where the lone hispanics won the step show too. It is MTV though…remember that awards show year where J LO won the best hip hop video award, Eminem won the best rap, Justin R&B male and hell if Britney or Christina would’ve been in the running for female it probably would’ve been a clean sweep. 1 black person won an award in 4 or 5 categories for urban music.

    They also have a show on now called Taking the Stage where last year the black dance sensation leaves his black ballerina girlfriend for the slightly heavyset white singer/songwriter. I read that there was a big debate on their boards where girls were complaining about MTV showcasing a black guy cheating/dumping his girlfriend for the white girl. This year he’s going straight in on the white chicks. My baby says she wont even bother to watch it this year…lol

  • http://chitchatta.com Yadda Yadda

    So I had to watch it with the sound off, if they were the best I don’t wanna know what the competition was doing. Those girls were sloppy and had no groove. They performed the moves but…. where’s the feeling. :shrugs:

    @ leapYearPices

    well said :preach:

  • mz.nikki82

    @Shauny I graduated from the school where taking the stage is filmed and yes sometimes it was like that. There really aren’t that many black guys that go there now. But wheneever a cute guy made it to the school everyone was on him.

    I heard that those young ladies won for the females but the Alphas from Central State University (also my alma mater) won for the men. I could be wrong but that’s what I heard.

    P.S How do I change my pic?

  • http://Twitter.com/Juana4ev Joja86

    No offense but I think the crowd was more into them because they were white stepping like that..people just seemed amazed. I admit they did do good and had a high energy performance for that long (i would have been so out of breath) however maybe its just me and I saw those moves b4 performed at my high school. You can see at certain points people were just screaming when they did the matrix, wined, etc

    Yes, I saw the episode with the lone hispanics. I was floored that they won because their whole routine was sloppy and all over the place. I think all of this is to prove that whites and others are just as good or better than blacks in areas that we created. I ain’t buying it. We always cheering them on like we are so happy that they are joining in on our events. Those chicks in that video were not even tight with their routine and if they were on my old step team they would have gotten the boot.

    My brother-in-law is a chef and former restaurant owner (he lives in Salisbury, NC) and he said the same thing. I’m sick of this shit too, and black people (not the just the South either) are so apathetic that we sit back and praise them for copying our style because we want to be politically correct. We can’t put Massah on blast.

    White folks talk about us, mock us, and tell us how inferior we are, yet we are steadily a topic in their lives while they steal everything from us and claim it as their own. The sad part is black people sit back and are still licking the white man and woman’s boots. I’m so through!

    Ggouch, you know you and I are esisters :-) so I say this respectfully, that I am all for diversity, but why is it whenever we as black people talk honestly about the way things are and what has been done to us, and the wrongs that have been done to us, we do not beleive in diversity or we are labeled “reverse racists’? Why is it whenever we stand up and say “no, things are not still equal” we are looked as the enemy even within our own race? I am not prejudiced or racist, I got love for ALL people who got love for me, but IT IS WHAT IT IS…just cause I am pro my people, don’t mean I am anti everything else, HOWEVER when given a forum to voice my opinion about things such as this, I am not going to be quiet and act like there are not differences and that it’s all good because we still have a long way to go, I believe in diversity, but I believe in the preservation of my people-ESPECIALLY the BLACK WOMAN first. We are becoming an extinct species sistas, pretty soon they are going to have to put our arses on the list with the other extinct species, oh but I forgot they won’t do that, because that’s the plan. Get rid of the black woman, get rid of the backbone and structure of the race, then TOTAL contol can happen and it starts with little subliminal shyt like this…and even though I can’t see the video, I don’t need to, ain’t nothing cute about that shyt…doing what has been done for eons..taking something culturally and historically from the african culture and imitiating it and oh guess what and I quote from the orginal paragraph Sandra posted:

    “They won cash scholarships and other prizes”…

    Do y’all see a theme here? LOL

    That’s what’s wrong with the world today, John Mayer can openly and freely state that his dyck is a “white supremicist” and everyone gives him a pass, but whenever we as blacks start speaking on the “silent truths” that most us “see” and “feel” on a daily bais, people say that we don’t believe in diversity or we are reverse racists, and that is not true.

    leapyearpisces,

    You speak with wisdom. The white man has done a job on us. We are so desperate to be accepted. Look up the Stockholm syndrome. It’s so hard to find Afrocentric peope who are in touch with reality. We will never, ever see a black homecoming queen/king at all white school (if I’m wrong, please correct me). Every other race sticks together except us. Black people have self-hatred. People with self-hatred pump up races other than their own; therefore, many of us see these white girls as better. It’s subconscious. That’s why we don’t stand up for ourselves and excuse their behavior. Does it dawn on people why Asians, Latinos, gays, Jews, and other don’t get attacked the way we do? Why? Because they would never tolerate it.

  • WalkingKontradiction

    I cna’t see the video but if they’re anything like the ZTA’s I went to undergrad with I’m not missing much. For me though I am on the fence because usually when a sorority not from NPHC arrives they get no love, let alone entry into the step show. I went to UNCC and I pledged a black female business & prefessional sorority by the name of Gamma Phi Delta, Sorority, Inc(1943!!!!) and you wouldn’t believe all the hate we got from the regular divine 9 sororities & fraternities. I was on the step team and we wanted to enter the step competition, they told us no because and I quote “yall aren’t NPHC and we would have to see how yall step” as if because we weren’t a member of the NPHC we weren’t capable of stepping OR in their words a REAL SORORITY….that cracks me up, they let us go on as an exhibition performance and we still did better, strolled better, stepped harder than them because we had heart. And btw for any memner of the divine 9 who throws that mess out about Gamma Phi Delta Sorority Inc, please do your research, NPHC offered us membership in 1988 and we respectfully declined because we were founded at a 2yr Business/Professional college and that would mean inactivating many of our founding members and those who continue to join our organization upon such campuses. Anywho I said all that to say, they let them enter but at other school’s and campuses won’t let their own enter simply because of ignorance, so maybe the problem isn’t with the “others” it’s whith us. :coffee:

  • Nupe4Life

    I have read a lot of these comments. The white girls learned to step several years back from the AKA’s at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, AR. They were pretty tight. I have been a step master and put togethera dozen shows. You can only do so much … I even find step shows boring. However the goal is to be tight and get the crowd participation (that is what the judges will give you big points on – I judge too). The probably got the “wow factor” but give them credit – they brought it.

    ohpretty1, some black people can’t help but attack another black person. The roots of inferiority grow very deep and have carried us throughout many centuries. Some black people will never wake up and figure it out. Check out the Stolkholm Syndrome and check out Tim Wise. He explains it perfectly.

    Skee Wee to all my sorors!!!

    I pledged AKA my sophomore year in school…I stepped in my probate and I did one step show. These girls were good imo…but…It seems like they had some help from some Alphas and maybe a couple DSTs.

    I know how some people feel about the situation. It’s like you work hard and pledge to be apart of something full of prestige and history and now “they” gotta be apart of it too….I remember people getting mad cause the Sigma’s pledged a white guy. I understand feeling that way. Minorities had to fight so hard to be accepted into colleges and universities, and when we did, we formed these groups as a way to distinguish ourselves. I’ve always said this about white americans…they don’t have a culture themselves (i’m not talking about italians etc). I mean really, think about it. They took our music, dancing, fashion…and the list goes on. So should it really be that surprising that a white sorority won a step show?

    It ain’t a black or white issue … they are a greek letter organization, they went through the regional competitions, the judges were not all white, they competed and WON!! Get over it … I love my letters to death, I love the history behind them etc., heck my chapter has a white Kappa the first in our province. Guess what he got it the smae way I did and I respect him for that. They got to the finals the same way any other group did and won. If we don’t won’t other groups to compete then set the guidelines for entry. The playing field was level and they brought it!!

    Not trying to discredit their win. They were pretty good imo…but their steps were signature DST and Alpha moves. I understand why some people feel the way they do about yts in the divine 9. They can’t possibly identify with some of the principles our frats and sororities were founded on. It can’t mean as much to them as it does to a black person. The history behind these organizations doesn’t really apply to them. This is just my opinion….

    Now…go head and get your e-stroll on…I dated a Nupe once..he made me a pink and green cane. I still have it to this day…taught me how to get my shimmy on…. :danban1:

    LOL – I am not spazzing out seriously. I just know they won on an equal playing field, They learned to step from the AKA’s several years ago. You tube them they have many shows posted … @attorneymom – my fiance is black (lol). I love my sisters; At my college we would not show the non black Greeks how to step because they saw it as entertainment versus history. It’s all good obviously they won over the judges (who are usually greek affiliated – at least some of them). It’s all good … these girls won the 2008 homecoming step show @ the University of Arkansas (Fayetteville) – wearing the same costumes and matrix concept – only they had 20 people stepping!

  • spartanbsw

    After watching the other sororities Zeta Tau Alpha was not the best. I never did get why members of D9 organizations would teach other councils how to step when they generally have no knowledge of the history and tradition of stepping. ZTA won because the judges were celebrities (Chilli, Monique, & NeNe) who don’t have the knowledge to properly judge a stepshow. I think people’s main issue with this is that Sprite marketed the Step Off to be about honoring BGLO traditions through stepping. It seems most people didn’t even know that non-D9 orgs were going to be involved.

We don’t want other races to have what we have but pitch a fit if they were to have the same thought process. People would be calling Al Sharpton.

    I am not Greek. But I know enough Black Greeks to know that they are protective of their tradtions. So with respect I must ask the question to those who felt some kind away about this non-black sorrority stepping in a “BLACK” (if you will) fashion: Why couldn’t this be looked at as something of a good thing, that something so beautiful and historical as stepping would want to be immulated by another sorrority? Didn’t they do it justice? the first 5 minutes I thought Iwas looking at black women in lace fronts..and I’m notkidding.

    So wait? Now there’s a problem with other races pledging Divine 9 sororities? I mean I get the tradition of it all but times have changed and we are not in the slave days. That has me feeling some kind of way and it furhter perpetrates the stereotypes that are out here about these organizations. I had a friend who was hispanic who pledged Alpha and all I can say is it wasn’t pretty, that disgusted me about the entire organization because let’s be real, if you’re gonna take the check don’t punsih the person for not “looking like the rest of you.” I swear I don’t get this at all and I come from a legacy of divine 9ers however the attitudes that people display who are apart of these groups is what made me turn away from legacy and do what everyone said I was crazy to do….idk, this just all strikes a nerve…for various reasons, but I know it will start an argument so I’ll digress…

    I may be preaching to the choir but I don’t have a problem with it. Our goal should be to teach ppl to be color blind, so how is it okay that we do the exact opposite of everything ppl fought generations to accomplish. As long as they were not making a mockery of stepping then I have no qualms with these girls.

    That’s why. Why the attitude? I mean I get the pride and whatnot, but this is my point, I’m sure in alot of people’s heads they assume that if you aren’t divine 9 you’re not good enough, real enough, whatever may be the case and what I’m saying is that is not always the case and I’ve heard it due to the organization I chose to pledge because most divine 9 don’t know their NPHC history. If in the end we are promoting unity and service in out communities then does it really matter what you are a member of? And I mean that as far as the negativity towards other organizations, including those within the divine 9.

    I can get with that, the org I joined was founded at a 2yr black business/professional school, that’s really why I think there is so much more to do amongst “US”, they expanded to 4yr colleges/universities as the need expanded but most were already professional women when they joined and that also has alot to do with why they declined NPHC membership, but they serve the community and youth the same.

    I’m not colorblind either Daisy, I’ve seen too much, but at the same time I still don’t like that to be the first thing others look at when they see me, but I’m sure that will never change….first they see black, then they see a woman, then they see a short woman, lol!

    @Daisy I keep thinking your gravi is CE

  • SouthernPrincess

    @AttorneyMom….We are Sorors. No fraud here sweetie.
    Also you started the E-Beef (for a lack of better words). You made some very disheartening and offensive statements about blacks that attended Ivy League schools. I addressed as a Soror then asked you what about Sorors like myself that attended Ivy League schools. You never addressed me as a Soror however you went on to say I had self hate because of my choice of schools and I had been brainwashed LOL
    So needless to say I loved youfrom a distance,,,hell I didn’t even attend your e-funeral. That has to count for something….No harm no foul Skee Wee!Soror

  • WalkingKontradiction

    Ebony put that popcorn up LOL
    ViBaby, All I know is when I entered that post they were recruiting singers. I didn’t even stay in it, so I honestly don’t know who was involved

  • nika405

    Is anyone watching intervention? This esp is crazy!

    @leapyear I went to JH Rose. North Pitt was out by my neighborhood. I l ive in Greenfield Terrace. We definitely need to link up.

  • Nupe4Life

    @attorneymom – My fiancewould not call anyone a fag out of the blue (she has class). I did apologize to those I offended, but I did not apologize to RTB.

    As for the homecoming queen … I went to Vanderbilt (you can’t get any whiter) we have had black HC queens and a king. Vandy had a white Delta recently, a white Nupe in the early 90’s (Old Skool Pledging). When black folks get together we can make anything happy – U-N-I-T-Y!!

    :popcorn: :koolaid2: You want some

    I have been to a couple of step shows. I like watching the male steppers :coffee:

  • Daisy

    What up PM crew *waves*

    Celeb fit club time was watching Forest Gump he really loved Jenny :heart:

  • indesign18

    Reppin NC today, I am in raleigh! I was bored after two minutes. I saw alot of Delta, Alpha, AKA, and Q steps in this show, the line formations were not tight or the transitions smooth (note big gap between person 2 and 3 in the line). My comments have nothing to with them being white, it’s just true. Stepping takes alot of work and at a real stepshow judged by sorors and frats, not Monique, Ludacris and NeNe. They would have picked up on that. There was alot of hooping and hollering at the beginning BECAUSE they were white. I have no problem with diversity but bring your own stuff to the table and then you get my respect. Which is exactly what they expect of us on the job daily. That was scholarship money taken on the back of others work. I am greek,DST, and know how hard it is to step and the work it takes to teach new members.

  • Daisy

    @Southern :rofl:

    @VI A girl can dream cant she :lolol:

    @Rene Let me add you back to my :pray: list

  • Daisy

    @Indesign I am a wannabe :rofl: DST didnt know how to act and were always off the yard while I was in collge and I am to cheap to go grad as of yet. I may break down in the next few yrs.

  • Nupe4Life

    @Indesign … every show has mistakes, but did they really take away from the show that much? I saw the one chick on the right totally mess up and forget where she was, but it was still tight overall … I’ve been on this thread all day; some people are not keeping it real with themselves. It was not the best show ever, but it was good. However I respect your opinion; we all have one right.

  • Ms.kaylamomma

    Hey SR after dark crew *waves*

    @Daisy, you watching celebrity fit club? Why is Bobby Brown lips ashy, like he was sucking on Gary Coleman’s nipples? K-Fed Baby Momma doesn’t look like she needs to be on there imo :shrugs:

  • SouthernPrincess

    Hi MKM, Did you see Tanisha crying, she is so extra!
    And her accent does seems as thick as BGC
    I agree about Shar, I think she looks fine

  • H-Townmama

    Hi SR PM Crew
    *waves* Hi MKM…is that your new gravi?! Fierce

  • Daisy

    I think Shar can stand to loose a few lbs so I am glad she is working towards that. She had gotten small at one time and gained all the weight back. She is not fat by any means though.

    Tanasha had me :rofl: she was so dramatic

    Bobby and his crooked mouth :lol:

  • ohpretty1

    *peeps in*

    Skee Wee Sorors Renegade, AKAtastrophy, AttorneyMom, SouthernPrincess and any I missed on the scroll down.

  • nika405

    Did Shar every save what made her gain the weight? She was small after her tummy tuck and breast lift. Tanisha is not even trying.

  • Ms.kaylamomma

    Hey Southern, yea, Tanisha, I have to put her azz on mute sometimes. She is too much.

    Hey H-townmamma *waves* that’s A.Keys in my gravi :cheer1:

    Bobby looks like he is holding a piece of crack in his mouth. Crooked mouth Bobby —–> :???:

  • Daisy

    @Nika I am loyal to a fault and I cant let go of couples ie Nick/Jess, Halle/Eric, Puffy/J Lo and Chris/Rihanna to name a few #dontjudgeme :lol:

  • nika405

    @ Daisy I was with you until Halle/Eric I never liked them together for some reason….Anyone know when Fannie’s album is supposed to release? Loving what I’m hearing so far.

  • VIBABY

    @NIka Erics no shoe wearing azz got on my nerves…and you couldnt pay me to believe that Halle isnt batshyt crazy. I only liked her with David Justice….

  • Daisy

    NC STAND UP :woot: Us country gals clean up well. Frank Bey is country she from TX boy stop!

  • Daisy

    @Nika I thought Eric/Halle were so cute together! Her baby daddy is a cutie as well but they dont do anything for me as a couple sorta like Matt and Rhianna :shrug:

  • Ms.kaylamomma

    I love those shoes!!!!! Gawd! Those are hawt.

  • Ms.kaylamomma

    So why didn’t Eric do a news conference as well? He was addicted to sex according to Halle.

  • Ms.kaylamomma

    Joel, Joel, Joel. @ Daisy, just to let you know, he told me that when he licks his lips, he’s sending me a signal :wink:

  • Daisy

    @MsKay Eric addressed the sex addict label that is something he said he went along with to try and save his marriage but there was only one woman (one to much he knows) but he really wanted his marriage to work so he was willing to do anything. I never believe the sex addict story anyway. Halle said on Oprah thats something her mama threw out there.

  • Ms.kaylamomma

    Is Jackie reading our comments under his posts?

  • nika405

    You should always search a possible beau’s FB page…and Google them and run their name thru the state database!

  • nika405

    Did he check out Pep’s man hands too?

  • Ms.kaylamomma

    Why is Jackie going to tell him she saw his facebook page???? All types of wrong…

  • VIBABY

    Awww thanks @Renegade

  • Daisy

    @VI I need to go look at your kids on FB

    @mskay I just had that FB/dating convo today. My gfriend asked me do I think its ok to look at somebodys page you are dating I said I dont know :shrug: I told her ppl do it all the time more than likely.

  • Ms.kaylamomma

    Jesus let me be a glass of wine so Joel can swallow me. :lol:

  • Ms.kaylamomma

    @ Daisy, I would. You never know these days. But I wouldn’t say anything like Jacque is.

  • Ms.kaylamomma

    Sorry VIBaby. I was just sayin’… Sorry! :sad:

    I’m not feeling Pepa’s date either.

    Joel is stuttering when talking about Maya. Red flag??

  • Ms.kaylamomma

    This guy AINT for Kittie. :nono:

  • indesign18

    @Daisy- you right girl! I too am not feeling this guy Pep is with, I think Pep is bored with Tom! LOL Kittie not feeling this guy when her dates are usually sucking toes and going to strip clubs and he is Krass~ sideye~
    Jackie for somebody is rushing to have babies tomorrow, she is getting her FB PI on. LOL!

  • Daisy

    Jacque could have handled it better but I sorta see where she was coming from

  • Daisy

    @indesign I think thats what turned Jacque off she is ready to be settled down and married within 6mths-1yr so she aint playing no games she isnt trying to waste time she doesnt have bless her heart lol

  • Ms.kaylamomma

    So Jacque is giving up on Joel because what?? She said they will be friends only basically.

  • Daisy

    Tom isn’t cute to me

    Kitties toe sucker stay sniffing around her

  • Daisy

    @MsKay cause he came off as a player to her and she is ready to settle down and be his/somebodys one and only. Not sure how long they had been kicking it but she wasnt happy with all the women posting on his page is what I gathered :shrug:

  • indesign18

    @daisy you are right she doesn’t have time but she handled that all wrong tho, LOL. She should have kept those cards close til it was at least official.
    But that makes me wonder if you are in a rush to get married in 6 months to a year can you be as picky???? HMMM SR family!

    Ok you go ahead do that grad chapter, now, cause sound SR is full of AKA’s. It all love though!

  • indesign18

    I know this so wrong but Pep’s date lips was black and Tom’s lips look like two little red balloons http://sandrarose.com/wp-includes/images/smilies/icon_shrug.gif

  • Daisy

    @Indesign I guess she cant be picky but then she doesnt want to waste time either she is in a catch 22 again bless her heart. I pray I am not in her shoes later on down the road with wanting a baby with no man in sight YIKES!

    *********************************************************
    I don’t remember you ever asking me this question; otherwise, I would have answered. You may have been one of the few Blacks (like my hero Van Jones) who survived the damage that is done to Black folks who attend predominantly white schools. If you are honest, you would tell the truth about classism and how the Black elite look down the non-Black elite. You can’t tell me that folks with Ivy League degrees don’t think they are better off or more privileged than those that graduate from HBCU(s). Perhaps I may have struck a chord in you that you are not ready to deal with at this time. Thus, I have created the Cotton Field Movement to help the Black elite and the “hoodrat” understand that we are in the same color boat and we need each other. Like Muhammad Ali said to me, “[In some folks’ eyes,] you still a nigga.” Selah.

    I see people are still haters! Steppin has been around sooooooooooo long that the only choices that competitors have is to copy styles from others. Just like oveerated R&B artists (Beyonce) today that cant sing a lick but can copy styles and sounds, and shake their behinds and call it entertainment. This is not the first time an all white group won a step show and it wont be the last. I give props to them because it was creative.
