Sister Circle

It looks like TV One or WXIA-TV may have terminated messy queen Funky Dineva from Sister Circle, a daytime talk show modeled after popular female ensemble talk shows such as The View and The Real.

Sister Circle

The 33-year-old part-time video blogger was originally signed to deejay for a panel of four women (L-R) sports reporter Rashan Ali, singer Syleena Johnson, standup comedian Kiana Dancie, and reality TV star Quad Webb-Lunceford (Married To Medicine).

But now Syleena and the other cast members are tweeting promotional images of themselves without Dineva — a sign that he may be gone from the cast.

The show’s producers had hoped the openly gay blogger would add a “male perspective” to the TV talk show about women’s issues. But Sandrarose.com‘s readers scoffed at the idea of a hostile gay man speaking on issues important to straight women.

Sister Circle

After the backlash from black women on social media and female-owned blogs, the powers that be removed any sign of Dineva from the show’s promotional material.

Dineva is known to be openly hostile to black heterosexual and lesbian women, often referring to us as “black bitches” and other derogatory, mysogynistic terms.

He still owes $6,700 to blogger Michelle Brown, of StraightfromtheA.com, for trashing her townhouse after she was kind enough to give him shelter.

Brown applied for a judge’s order to garnish his wages from TV One.

Sister Circle premieres this September on TV One.

Will you watch the show now that Dineva is gone?

    “Will you watch the show now that Dineva is gone?”

    No.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    BYEEEE BOY
    Didn’t understand why he was going to be there anyway…..he doesn’t even respect black women. What the hell was his contribution going to be

  • Blaque Mahogany

    How do you get fired on your day off? Maybe that’s just a different promo pic. I thought you said the last time he was going to be the DJ or something. Not an actual host.

  • Diva4lyfe

    This is too much already and the show hasn’t even aired yet. Messy, messy, messy don’t think this one will be on my agenda

  • Nonya Bizness

    “Messy, messy, messy”. LOL. Those exact words went through my head when I finished reading, right before I saw your comment.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Truthfully, I wasn’t gonna watch the show even if Dineva was there…

  • Please Stop The Madness

    was originally signed to deejay

    the powers that be removed any sign of Dineva from the show’s promotional material.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Did the original post say he was the DEEJAY? I dont think this was originally said.

    Umm Shawn Wayans. Was the Deejay for his own damn FAMILY show and he didnt appear in promo photos until it was damn near off the air. SW1/In Living Color. And that was his family. And hell he supposedly gay too

  • YourHero

    Damn. Now the student loan people and Michelle will never get their money!

  • PrettyBrown28

    So basically Sandra…you, Michelle and y’all crew called to complain about FD. Y’all conniving ways are going to catch up to you.

  • Noirluv45

    I hate to say this, but some of the most hostile people I’ve encountered, especially in the workplace, are from the LGBT community. No one ever talks about the evils that come from some in that community.

  • Hummingbird_225

    I like him. I think he would’ve been good for the show. I watch his vlogs and they are hilarious. Oh well we’all see him on tv, he announced on his YouTube channel that he is filming a reality show too.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Why are all of yall coming for Dineva??? Idk the backstory with Sandra and FD but Im just assuming you may be on Michelle’s side. Dineva is doing the same commentary that most youtubers do when he reviews shows. He mostly gives rich white woman tease not angry at the world tease…..

  • Noirluv45

    “Will you watch the show now that Dineva is gone?” Honestly, I don’t know who these people are, and even if I did, I wasn’t planning on watching it in the first place.

  • MookieFly

    You petty lmaooo

  • MookieFly

    Im gonna record it on my dvr just to support them. Still don’t know about watching it. How come we haven’t had a powerhouse like Oprah rule the talk show circuit? Only POC I can think of is Wendy.

  • Rayne

    Walked In to work this morning there was this super tall woman bout 6’5 size got damn 12 in shoe. Feet long as a loaf of French bread, I shook her hand and we exchanged good mornings. Mine eyes went straight to the crotch. Yep, this is a mister ma’am right here. I’ll be damned it is. I was just too through. My boss is Korean she looked at me like girrrrlllllll. I walked off laughing at her. ??? the “thang” was literally right there . He got on a flower spandex hot pink skirt too. I saw it.

  • JerseyMom

    But Quad is still on the show tho.

  • http://worldstarhiphop.com/ The Dutchess

    I think he’s hilarious I don’t know what folks are all up in arms about

  • YourHero

    With Quad there, there really isn’t a need for another gay male.

  • Noirluv45

    Lawd! Your story reminded me of a friend who had to go into a women’s homeless shelter. One of her “female” roommates had a damn beard, a deep voice, and clearly a “thang,” but he claimed to be a woman. “She” and 3 other ladies had to share a room, and “she” would always ask the ladies what bra size they wore. They were very uncomfortable undressing around “her.” They complained to management and were told they could not discriminate against “her.” SMH.

  • JerseyMom

    I never cared about Funky D*ck either.

  • Dowoop

    Oh my!

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    Maybe he and Phaedra can go on auditions together or he can answer the phones and keep away the people who wanna blow her the funks up at the office? #LorenzoChaps

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Have you ever tried to eat an entire box of raisins in one sitting? If I ingest one more talk show, I’m going to vomit!

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    My comment feelings exactly.

  • casiepriest33

    I work with this queen Brandon and let me tell you: these gay men are not our allies. They hate women. They cause so much confusion and chaos between women. They play us like fiddles. You wouldn’t allow a straight man to call you biych or grab your titties. Don’t let a queen do it.

  • Miany

    IMO the talk show wave died in the early 2000’s you barely see white or black folk launching talk shows… Wendy is only here because she is a gossip source. When Ricky Lake can’t even hold on to a talk show for more than 3 seasons, you know the wave has ended.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    Doesn’t look interesting either way.

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    That’s what I said. ?

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    See below. ?

  • Miany

    bofl… I died when I read he supposedly gay too… leave Shawn out ya fuggery lol..

  • Lovers & Friends

    He has what we like to call a face for radio.

  • takenaback

    Well Michelle may never get her money now. Funky Dineva would have cleaned up his act. Didon’t Wendy clean up her act for TV

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    Random. I’m watching this judge show and they introduced the plaintiff as an “Affluent Housewife”. Made me laugh….and miss being at work. One year maternity leave is wearing my nerves thin. I’m OVER IT! Hurry up 2018!

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I want somebody else to come up with another idea. How many shows like this r on tv now?

  • Please Stop The Madness

    Smdh sis. Like how he supposed to be in the promo materials and he just the damn deejay? Is Jam Master Jay on the front of Run DMC debut album? I shall answer. No he was not.

  • Rayne

    Now that’s sad. I’m not undressing around no man. He’s still got a penis so it’s clearly a man.

  • Rayne

    Lmao

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    Wendy did a whole 180. I tried to not like her and still can’t stand her stubble of a husband but, I’m not sleeping with him so blah. She jumped on that surgery table, won over the white women and BAM…. started cashing those checks.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Me too IDK what the issue is…

  • MookieFly

    I guess youre right. With so many reality shows out, the average viewers tastes have changed.

  • Soda

    “Feet long as a loaf of French bread.” Lol!

  • Justlooknout

    I was confused as to why a man in drag was considered a sista.

    But I don’t know the rules.

  • Vegas1989

    Take your time and don’t rush back so quickly. You are really blessed to have a year off. Enjoy it while you can.

  • Justlooknout

    Congrats, I didn’t know you were preggers/or had baby. Congrats again.

  • Vegas1989

    You need to text me that picture so I can see…LOLSMH…Wow…

  • Wreckognize Game

    So true. I was so happy when Arsenio was coming back but he couldn’t adjust to the new times and was cancelled. I tried to watch new Ricky Lake but she changed too much trying to save the world and she was gone too.

  • Vegas1989

    I would have asked “HIM SHE” what size are you?..What size panties are you wearing?….LOL….

  • SumthinSweeter

    lol, chile where do you work!? it’s so many funny things going on in the details!

  • Soda

    And Jerry Springer’s been on for nearly 100 years with the same formula, only now he pretends that fighting isn’t allowed.

  • semaj24philly

    Sandra u should ask to join the cast.Oh my bad u talk just as much $hit as Dinvea.

  • ?Royalty?

    Sounds about right. LOL!

  • Angela Winbush

    I was only going to tune because of Funky Dineva…if he’s not part of the panel..I definitely won’t be watching.

  • i troll it like i see it

    Don’t want to wish anything bad on anyone but he didn’t believe along on that panel, let’s be honest. How is he providing a genuine male perspective.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    I’m 37 with an 11 year old already. My preference this go round just is what it is.

  • Cecelia Roberts

    AGREE!!!

  • Carrington

    Who the hell casted this show from the beginning? They definitely weren’t looking for an aesthetic. Let me make a call to see if this is true…

  • JerseyMom

    You are right. ????

  • MissHarlem

    It’s called sister circle. Meaning women with real pussy. Can’t be apart of every damn thing. You are a boy Damon. You have your own lane with the loud lipstick and tacky itchy wigs. I mean really. Shit is annoying. I don’t mind him because I can take him in doses but ?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    So you’re saying the women are ugly… ??

  • Rayne

    Lmao for the federal government. Ion do squat but walk look and talk lol

  • disqus_vTNhfrtBCE

    I’m not saying all gay men but some of the ones who try to emulate how they think women are such as the ones who like to switch when they walk, snap their fingers in the air, bring their voices up a few octaves and smack their lips can be messy. Once again I’m not saying all but from my experience a lot who have those traits can be messy.

  • MsPam

    Because some people have made them feel like sistas.

  • Justlooknout

    that I kinda understand, but he he look like a skinny lumber jack.

    Not on the level of Ms. Lawrence.

  • Harley

    NOPE still wont watch

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Funky Dineva is an absolute, horrific mess. And there’s just not enough make-up available to cover his combination ashy and dirty-greasy complexion.

    Hopefully he has gotten canned because there’s no way I’m sitting and watching that ugly thing on my TV screen and on top of that, getting early in the morning for the privilege of it. Chile please.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    I’ll say it. These chicks look like an advertisement for PETA!

  • MookieFly

    Raisins are the devil so I understand lol

  • Harley

    Exactly I am not familiar with ANY of these people

  • Peter Piper ATL

    He was gonna provide the spectacle of an over-the-top, highly effeminate gay male caricature who talks and acts as if he’s carrying the world’s biggest cooch between his legs.

    He was gonna be there to be laughed at.

  • Ryan

    Damn. What he do to you?? ?

  • Peter Piper ATL

    You always have something thoughtful to say, and once again, you’re right.

    They force feed Black women this sort of mess and call it “entertainment”. Its lame and over-saturated is what it is.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    LOL

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Ummmm, maybe we’re not talking about the same person. Dineva is a mess. And he TRIED his best to get Alexander Rodgers–a much more clever YouTube comic, by the way–banned from YouTube and blacklisted. LOL. Messy and petty and easily threatened.

    Dineva seems to think he’s Louis Mayer and this is MGM circa 1947. He’s not in a position to blacklist anybody, except perhaps at the free clinic he gets his meds from.

    *dead*

  • Justlooknout

    It sounds like were “friends” at one time?

  • kennedy campbell

    it goes on in all communities…i’m gay and agree though. for me it has always been the gay black queen community that have been catty and hostile…

  • kennedy campbell

    do you think it’s that they hate women or that they are emulating those real house wives type of women? if you’re familiar with those shows, it reminds me of the way a sub community within the gay community behaves.

  • HalleMerry

    So will every show now include a Token gay person? Gay is the new black.

  • hotlantaboss

    Sadly, no I won’t watch without him. I absolutely love Quad, but don’t care enough about the others listed. The FD/Quad pair was home run for me, so no… one less show to watch for me.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    LOL, who said he did anything to me? That’s my opinion, I said it, you read it–now what?

  • Ryan

    “Now what?” Now nothing. You are just a very angry person. *shrug*

  • Elevated Soul

    That MAN does not belong on a show that is suppose to highlight women speaking on women….Gay men especially those in wigs and dresses want to replace humans born FEMALE!

  • Peter Piper ATL

    He should have ditched those wigs years ago. The first time I saw him I was just appalled. Wigs that look like something in the dumpster behind an arts and crafts store; dollar store red lipstick; ashy face, lips, forehead and greasy cheeks.

    A MESS.

  • Miany

    I know.. I wish Arsenio coulda came back and made it.

  • Tony Winston

    yes it is the new and approved black, hehehehhe

  • Tony Winston

    don’t no body wanna see a stud on tv like Sandra hahahahha

  • hottlanta

    When am I gonna see Chaz Bono sitting around straight men and the media calls her one of the guys and discuss prostrate cancer, the proper way to wear a jock strap and suit. Funky is the new non-threatening /comfort zone negro to white folks. He is small, soft, talks with a light voice and funny. White men heavily promote black men who they think will not go after their women but white women are too blind to see that these are the kind of black guys white men like. White men love Leroy Cox because he and his wife are calling him beautiful. The white wife think it is cosmetic/harmless while the white man is looking at him sexual. I have always said the LGTBQ community not only racist but is sexist as well because it is easy/less threatening to promote the visibility of Cox and Mock of men who look like women and put women who look like man like Chaz on the back burner.

  • Lovers & Friends

    It’s a character he created. I don’t think the others will be able to carry the show without him.

  • IntroSpective

    Man, let Dinvea be great. Please!!!

  • 19awesomegrl97

    just wrong & messy that man need his coins too i find him hilarious…he b telling the truth tho blk folk lk crabs in a barrel smh

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Oh sweetheart don’t do that. LOL. Honey you’re being more of a drama queen than Dineva.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    We don’t need to see Ms. Funky Dineva AKA Aunt Esther on TV anyway.

  • Renee26

    Nope..didn’t plan on watching in the first place

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Wait! Wait! Wait! Your comments just reminded me of something!

    A friend e-mailed me a gay adult video with the promise that it would blow my mind. I’m no spring chicken and I’m definitely not a prude; so, I scoffed at the notion that an adult video could shock me.

    The video opens with two muscular, black ,male actors – one playing an office worker and the other a mail delivery guy. The delivery guy, who also portrayed the “bottom,” was very attractive. At first, the top was hitting it from the back. Then, he flipped the bottom over on his back. And bam! There it was… a full-blown va-jay-jay… clit and all! Mind blown!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I like Funky…

  • unknown user

    That candy habit of his is out of control and bad for business. I’d say he should sign on for lhhatl and come up with some drama but he’s already burned that bridge

  • Ryan

    Yeah, after that butthurt tantrum you made up there you’re the last person to try to call somebody a damned diva ? Have a good one!

  • TeeTee

    where can I find this?

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    Alexander Rogers is obsessed with Funky Dineva. If it Alex didn’t create so many videos on Dineva, no one would know who he was or what the issue was. They are BOTH messy queens. Alexander has a higher vocabulary for sure but he strikes me as the kind of gay Black man who doesn’t even hang out with other gay Black men.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    According to one of his videos, he recently paid $2500 for parking tickets and $800 in fees, because he wanted to buy a car for the upcoming talk show. Oops!

  • TeeTee

    come on .. can we show some support for Rashan Ali? She not ugly…

  • TeeTee

    What about Whoppie?

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    I am an avid watcher of Funky Dineva videos. He never spoke of the talk show. He is on a reality TV show that has yet to be announced. He wanted a new car for the reality show and other projects. It sounds like he has several projects lined up and in the works. This talk show is news to me and others who watch his videos regularly. He never mentioned it.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Thanks. I thought he was talking about the talk show.

LMBO Wait Michele tried to garnish wages that haven’t even been earned yet? #QUEENPETTY…LMBO

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I dont watch alexander rogers his voice is annoying and he sounds likes the freak nasty dude in Boomerang. And on top of all that his backgrounds are like the fake Godzilla movies from the 60’s lowkey I didn’t even know about this dude until the “beef” with Dineva. Yall may know him in the ATL but he is not known at outside of that…

  • pure_rachet

  • Mrs Mary

    All these bloggers are messy, think about it, they are reporting on other folks lives when their lives are being hidden from us. So with that being said..it takes messy folks to talk about other folks rather it’s blogging or whatever the case..they still in other folks business and none of them are exempt from being messy…one is no better than the next.

    That chile sho can lie. He has been known to borrow people’s cars because he could never seem to scrape enough cash to even get a beater.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Dineva’s business is all out in the industry, who is he kidding?

    It’ll be interesting to see how things play out…

    that is what happens when you condone MESSY … I blocked dineva because he couldn’t stop using the word fish …. I used to make allowances because my uncle was gay … he has since passed away and was the only person in my family I trusted but gay men and especially the ones that wear wigs I’m realizing are not my friends .. I have to say ALL of them… the gay men I have been in the presence of like to lie and they think everybody gay … yes to them EVERYBODY is gay … I just can’t Oh and Yes my uncle was a liar too … They love to argue with women and think they are better women than me … I don’t have the energy for all of that crap

    This must have been fairly recent because he was discussing only the reality show the past two months or so on YouTube. I don’t follow his IG or Twitter.

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    Since I don’t follow his IG or Twitter, I can only go by what he said on YouTube. The talks show was never discussed on YouTube, just the reality show.

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    Now you know the “rich white woman” stuff was a joke lol But I often wonder if the rumors of his drug habit is the reason he hardly ever seems to have money to pay for anything.

  • Tammie Reed

    Yes, I’m a blogger but sorry that was not me lol. I live in Atlanta but travel to Los Angeles a lot. They usually provide a car service for me while in town. I review vehicles here and there in ATL but I have never rented a car.

  • Mrs Mary

    Exactly gay men and women are THE WORSE!!!!! They are bitter, evil, jealous hearted, and are literally careless when it comes to others feelings and emotions, they are selfish human beings and everything is about them!

  • pure_rachet

    Ok maybe wrong person but whoever it was was super nice and gave me a business card for talking with tammy. I assumed it was you.

  • Lisa daniels

    Tammie, are saying that Sandra is lying?

  • stanhope

    Thing is a hot mess on a very cold day. Half of the time thing’s site is down for nonpayment. Thing is funny admittedly but thing is inconsistent. The idea of including thing in the talk show cast was novel. That said i wonder how thing would have worked day after day. That requires a discipline thing doesn’t have. Unless something major changes, thing is ova.

  • Noirluv45

    Mrs Mary, so many are!
