Empire

Fox TV's hip hop soap opera Empire picked up where the Fall Finale cliffhanger left off.

After Rhonda Lyon (Kaitlyn Doubleday) was brutally shoved down a flight of stairs, she watched as her assailant, Anika Calhoun (Grace Gealey), calmly strolled out the front door wearing a pair of black red bottom flats.

Anika, who is pregnant with Hakeem Lyon's seed, eliminated the competition for heir to Empire's throne by murdering Rhonda and Andre Lyon's unborn baby.

In the next scene, Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard) and his legal goon, "Thirsty" Rawlings (Andre Royo), plot to take Empire back from the conniving Camilla (Naomi Campbell) and her boy toy Hakeem Lyon (Bryshere Y. Gray).

Hakeem defies his mother Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) who orders him to take back his vote that kicked Lucious off the board of Empire.

When Hakeem remains defiant and refuses to take back his vote, Cookie beats him relentlessly with a broomstick until it breaks. She then assaults him with her chain purse.

Lucious and Thirsty hire a group of ex-convicts to "scare" Empire's board members into withdrawing their CEO nominations.

Hakeem Lyon

Hakeem then names himself Empire CEO by default, thus pitting himself against his father, Lucious, in a strange duel of wits on the very spot where Lucious killed his best friend Bunkie in season 1.

Empire's young viewers endured 2 songs by Jamal "the goat" Lyon (Jussie Smollett), who now claims to be ambisexual. "Just because I have sex with, uh, two women in my entire life doesn't mean I'm straight or bi or anything," he says in a conversation with his mother, Cookie.

"Sexuality is fluid," Jamal says. But Cookie reminds Jamal that heterosexual sex is how he was conceived.

Speaking of fluid sexuality, Camilla, who was married to a woman in the 1st half of season 2, is now presumably straight again.

Camilla resumes her relentless pursuit of Hakeem who has other plans to deflower his on-again, off-again girlfriend, Laura (Jamila Velazquez).

    I'm not reading this post because I haven't viewed the episode yet, but for those who care, PLEASE watch Unsung Hollywood featuring Fred Williamson. It really details his relevance in Hollywood, as well as in international film.

    We need to see more positive images of ourselves and be reminded of what we are capable of. This man never had a door close in his face, because he was too busy knocking down doors and forging opportunities for himself and other PoC. It is a powerful episode. ??

  • the guest

    This man never had a door close in his face, because he was too busy knocking down doors and forging opportunities for himself and other PoC. It is a powerful episode.

    ****

    Will absolutely watch Mr. Williamson's episode!

  • Fendi

    I'm just sorry I didn't know how impactful he was when I used to see him.

    Upon seeing Black Caesar, I realized that I was born 20 years too late (and probably 4 shades too dark, because he has a penchant for white women - my only dislike about the man). Lol

    But his legacy is a great legacy. He is living history.

  • Yea

    This show sucks now

  • Lovelove

    Empire is not written well at all.

  • Fendi

    I liked the season premiere. I won't spoil it in the event someone hasn't watched it yet, but it was good.

  • Vonn

    I love how he made his own rules. You can't kill me in my movies, I'm the hero, & I get the girl. This man was a powerhouse. College educated, Professional football player, and actor/producer among other things. He thought he could do anything and he did. Powerful episode indeed.

  • Fendi

    That architecture degree enabled him to craft so many things beyond physical structures. He is one example as to why education, in its varied forms, is so powerful. When a person is educated in the right ways, it truly helps increase their vision.

  • Vonn

    Yes, to all of this. I was watching this episode like...damn, I need a snack.

  • Tammie Reed

    Watched 2 seconds fell asleep! It has gotten old already!

  • Fendi

    I was watching it like, "Damn, if I was born 20 years earlier and a few shades lighter, he could've put that hammer upon me." TMI. Sorry. Lol

  • Vonn

    Girl, you got that right. He loves the snow bunnies.

  • Fendi

    That's where my respect for him stops.

    He acts like the white women he bedded and briefly married are some prize. But what's funny is the women who were praising Williamson as a man and as a player in the film and tv industries are all beautiful, accomplished Black women. Margaret Avery is 72 or 73. The other women are either late 60's or early 70's actresses who were popular during that era.

    Where were the snowflakes to praise The Hammer?!. Perhaps they were Kelly Price level booked. *shrugs*

  • Vonn

    I love Margaret Avery!! There is NOTHING in this world like a black momma. Look at the deep love that he had for his mom. Then deprived his kids of the black momma experience. They were Kelly Price booked alright...shopping at the Piggly Wiggly.

  • Fendi

    Since they're adults (older than I am), I can say HIS SONS ARE HIT!!! Race mixing fail!!! Folks love to believe that blending races somehow ensures that the products of that blend will be more attractive than those who aren't mixed. I'm using them as exhibits as to that theory being a full-fledged myth. They are all horrible looking with bad teeth, which is shameful, because their father is nearly 80, with perfect teeth. He is more attractive and physically fit than they are. So much for Darwinism. The white genes f*cked them ALL the way up.

  • Vonn

    Lol. + Rain Pryor.

  • Fendi

    IDK if she consciously chooses white men or if Black men simply don't like her. The only Black man I've seen around Stacey Dash is Damon Dash. Lol

    It's like Halle Berry. BM claim to find Halle attractive, but they never manage to treat her well. I'm not saying the white men treat her any better, because it is my understanding that Gabriel Aubrey doesn't even like Black people. I can, however, see him using Halle as a come up. And many people won't see her as 'black' because of her being biracial.

    Fred Williamson really sat up and said that he went after the things he went after because he knew white folks didn't want him to have them. Clearly, that meant not only their education, but their daughters. I guess.

  • Vonn

    That grown son of Stacey is with Christopher Williams, my bad. Fred was lucky those white dads didn't pull the ole "you raped my daughter" crap. They were good for that back then, now too.

  • Fendi

    Your last sentence >>>.

    After seeing Unsung last night, I'm convinced Williamson influenced a lot of other young Black male athletes to come - OJ and Marcus Allen to name a couple of them.

    After Williamson, Black men seemed to think "having" a white woman was some sort of prize. Part of me wants to hug him and hold on tight, because of Black Caesar. The other part of me wants to pull an end of Black Caesar on his Black ass, because of those Beckys. I probably shouldn't care, but sadly, I do.

    I should probably get myself a white man, but you know, hypocrisy. ?????

  • Fendi

    +1. Good am.

  • Vonn

    The man was a beast...& a beast lover. Lol. Jokes aside he is a true trailblazer.

  • Vonn

    Lol. I hate you. Fistopher said it wasn't him.

  • Vonn

    I bet you all will love it.

  • Fendi

    I know he didn't bust Halle's ear drum, but you can't convince me that he didn't get high and put his hands on a woman at least twice in his life.

    Beige men get real volatile about petty sh*t.

  • Fendi

    Sidebar: My next door neighbor's husband just left for work. He always leaves for work hella early. Anyone want to take this bet that he is going to his other woman's house, getting a few winks, nods and pumps in, showering, then heading to his job and returning home, only to talk on his celly in his car for 30 mins or so before he walks into him home to greet his wife and kids? Anyone?!.

  • Vonn

    Imma laugh my a$$ off on the way to work about this.

  • Fendi

    IDK why, but I'm glad I could provide a little comedic relief.

    I was in tears the other day watching Born Again Virgin. There was a funeral that was the best gd funeral I've ever seen. Whomever came up with that idea and incorporated it into the show should be a funeral planner.

    At the end of the funeral, the choir sang a song. The soloist busted out, singing, "Roll me up and smoke me when I die..." Don't ask me why that made me cry for 20 mins, then sing it all damn night, but it did. And she was so nonchalant about it.

    Best funeral EVER!!!

  • Vonn

    The circus or clown themed funeral? LOL

  • Fendi

    YES!!! You saw it! ??

    I so feel like I live in an alternate universe. Sometimes, I just want to talk tv with someone, but I don't want to impose.

    "She was 100. She died of 100." That was everything.

  • Victorious82

    I think he messed with white women because he could.

  • Vonn

    I fell asleep at the beginning of the service when the woman got out of the limo grieving. I'm a catch up this weekend.

  • Fendi

    That's like saying water is wet. I can get high and lick the lining of another woman's crotch, but I choose not to. Just because you can doesn't mean you should. But God bless him. I still hold the man in high regard because of his legacy. I'd just love to have seen him have as much reverence for Black women as Black women have for him.

  • Fendi

    That was Kelly's mom acting a complete fool. Lol. I hope you enjoy it.

  • Victorious82

    agreed.

  • Yoni

    LOL How you know what time he's spose to be at work? LMAO

  • Vonn

    I've only seen the show a few times, but I'll finish watching this one.

  • Yoni

    I turned it on. After about 8 mins in, I started watching somebody LIVE on FB. Got up to cook me something to eat and looked up and it was gone off. Didn't hold my attention at all. I will try again next week.

  • WetPntees

    LOL!!! *curiously searches crayon box for beige*

  • Fendi

    She said he goes to work early. He returns around 5:30p. IDK too many people who work 12 hrs/day and still look chipper doing so. His other woman must have that 'great great.'

    Husband is always smiling and friendly. Wife, on the other hand, is hell on wheels. She accused me of calling the police on her because her kids scream and cry at 2 and 3 am. Neighbors across the street did that. I only know because someone else told me she was accusing me to them and talking crap about me. I've never done anything to her, but she has a figurative boner towards me. Jealousy. She bashed me once to my mom. That's how you know I'm saved, because I should've stabbed the ho years ago. She claimed I don't like kids. Meanwhile, I LOVE kids. What I don't like is excessive noise and/or unruly children. She is lazy and her children are loud and unruly because she doesn't train them. She thinks she owns the neighborhood and can disrespect us all. What she owns is a face like Droopy, some bad weaves and a bad build.

    Her kids love me, particularly her little son. And the kids across from them want to move into my home. Lol. I understand, because I have my toy collection from my youth, a slew of giant stuffed animals, and a seemingly endless supply of candy. Let the hate commence. Just don't ask me for isht!

  • Fendi

    Don't do it. The crayon may want to go off on you if you don't hold it a certain way. Ol' petty ass beige.

    I call men Fistopher's (Williams and Brown) complexion beige or waffle colored. Notice, both of them have extreme anger issues, particularly towards women.

    Get you a good BLACK crayon. A good, ol' jet black crayon with coarse hair. All of that "if your hair is relaxed, they're (sprites) relaxed" rhetoric is just that - BS! The Fistophers have loose curl patterns and they're mad af.

  • Hugga Bunch

    Damn, crazy how the thrill is gone for the show. Feeling is mutual.

  • The Mrs.

    Where's the yawn emoji? It wasn't hittin' on nothing for me last night. I should have been watching Unsung Hollywood with Fendi!

  • WetPntees

    LMAO!!!! *loose curl patterns* Like Big Luther whose curls never really curled all the way ova? LOL!!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Do you see a period after Rhonda's name? Monica Brown once said, "May the spirit of reading with comprehension come upon you." The baby was the heir to Empire, not Rhonda. The baby was Rhonda and Andre Lyon's baby. Anika wants her baby to be the sole heir. It's sad that I have to dumb down my writing for my readers.

  • Fendi

    That was such a "team natural" comment of me. Blame it on IG.

    Is Big Luther Mr. Vandross?

    The son, who is the elder child, would walk through my front door if I open it. No warning. He did so when I was putting my Christmas wreath on the door one holiday. His sister was a baby, so she couldn't walk then.

    The kids have a spirit of expectation. "Remember when you gave us candy last time?" Sure do. That's my cue to give them more candy. Lol. I left them Easter candy and a Peeps card game just before Easter.

    I was directing that comment at the troll, not you or anyone else with good reading comprehension.

    True story: when I was 8 I read every book in my mom's little closet library. A lot of the books were college level. If I stumbled on a big word, I asked my mom, "what's this word?" She would say, "take the book to school and ask your teacher." My teacher would scold me for reading books way above my comprehension level (I was in the 4th grade).

    I learned 2 things: 1. my mother didn't understand some big words, and 2. my teacher didn't either.

    You can see it on Fox.

    I notice that the writers/producers are trying to "explain" the gay agenda on the show. Now, Jamal is "sexually fluid" and not gay. Uh-huh. The viewers are down, there's tweets about too much gay in the show, so they're cleaning it up?

    This ep was OK. It's not a MUST see TV for me. I could list a lot of WTH? Like WTH is Hakeem doing running a company? WTH is Camila's wife?

    And is Precious getting fewer and less air time? She came in the room and said two words.....Just saying. I still don't know why Gabby is in the show or what significance her role has. Time to let her go.

    We got used to her glazing donuts in the morning and got a little lax, but she showed us!

  • Jusstlookn

    You win, its your party and Love you and my login more.

  • Yoni

    "Can't teach a man (or woman) what he (or she) thinks he already knows." :tea:

  • iWasteTime

    They all do it and I can't get back into shows after 4 months off. I understand doing it for the holidays but come back in Jan not March/April ... I've lost interest in Quantico and Once Upon of Time because of it

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Ha! I like that. That's a great way to encourage your child's knowledge. Good for you!

  • Tammie Reed

    Welp!

  • iWasteTime

    she showed up and out!

  • Futuredocdonte

    I come in here to see if auntie is giving us a post about how the viewing numbers fell and she is giving us a post with no shade o_O

  • dancemomtoo131

    LOL @ "I should probably get myself a white man, but you know, hypocrisy"

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    I wouldn't do ish and I know it. Before Lync, my dept used AIM when I first started and I would be talking to my friends on it all day.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    How my reading and vocabulary got up too Sandra. I have a sister who is 11 years older than me and a cousin who is like our sister, that is 13 years older. They were reading Stephen King HARD in the PAINT. And 7-8 year old ME was reading it too. That "Firestarter" was not a JOKE vocab wise for a little girl.

    Telekinetic.
    Pyromania.
    Auto-hypnotic.

    Charlie McGee was it!

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    I know! I hate that. And cable shows are the worst. They go on mid-season hiatus for like 6 months or more. Who can even remember where you left off that long after?!

  • Yoni

    You know I'm just joking with you, right?

  • SameoleJ

    Don't you dare start off the weekend, by calling us the yellow bus riding, helmet wearing, licking each other (instead of the windows), slow slows again!! Uhn, uhn!! no, Ma'am and a good day to you!!

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Nah, she just replied to me upthread that she wasn't calling us slow, just wetpnties.

  • SameoleJ

    Tread lightly.....and don't poke the bear...the pink box reared it's head early on Tuh-Day

  • Yoni

    Right. Barely can remember the cast and crew.

  • SameoleJ

    Oh, unkay......cause I already put my helmet up!! LOL

  • It’s Taurus Season

    They started doing it by accident. Wasn't always like this. Remember the Hollywood Writers Strike about 10 years ago? That is when they started doing it. How Girlfriends got practically RUN off the air too.

  • Yoni

    Hopefully we ALL won't be punished for the action of ONE! *kerrywashingtonlipquiver*

  • iWasteTime

    I would be all up in my moms Anatomy and Physiology book. Once she realized that I was actually reading up to the point where I stumbled she started buying me YA series and by the 6th grade I was allowed to read what I wanted but had to go to her with any questions. 8th grade Christmas break, I read Waiting to Exhale .. lol

  • THE OLDER SISTAH

    This was my problem with HTGAWM. I love that show but it took too long to come back and I couldn't get into it. I can remember way back when shows returned in the fall and played all the way through.

  • SameoleJ

    So now you done called them slow slows?! Sike, Sandy I understand!! LOL

  • iWasteTime

    None of Time Jr books are really age appropriate. He can read on his level already and if I have to read about the darn Lego Ninjas so be it ...lol!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    It's beautiful thing when parents or siblings encourage younger ones to read. Books are becoming obsolete, thanks to the Internet.

  • Yoni

    It had a few scratches and dents on it, huh? LMAO

  • It’s Taurus Season

    HBO started that ish. Again with the Writers Strike bc it started happening right around the end part of "Sex In The City".

    But "Big Love" Man "Big Love" was gone so damn LONG. Like TWO YEARS PLUS. Me and my sister in law used to update each other on what we saw on updates on when the hell it was coming BACK.

  • Yoni

    ....and BLOOP! LMAO

  • GubmentCheeze

    Is it me or is Hakim looking like he's been hitting the bottle or smoking a lil too hard? His face looks weird and his lips are brown. I know he from Philly and our brothas here tend to have a layer of dust on them but damn.....

  • SameoleJ

    Man, she came out of no where the other day, so I had to run back home and snatch it from the little - big as heyul boy next door that needed it. He didn't give it up willingly!! CTHU

  • Yoni

    FUN (for) DA MENTAL. :tea:

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Let me Google what y'all talking about.

  • THE OLDER SISTAH

    Is that what started it? I wish they would go back to the way it was because this is not working for me.

  • Yoni

    She was provoked.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    Yeah. Around like 2001-2002. So more along the lines of 15 years ago.

  • iWasteTime

    I know he from Philly and our brothas here tend to have a layer of dust
    -----------------------------------
    Lmaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaoooooooooooooooooooooo
    :wail: :rofl:

  • Yoni

    he from Philly and our brothas here tend to have a layer of dust on them
    ___________________________
    BYE! LMAO

  • SameoleJ

    So you making excuses for her this morning, huhn?! It's okay, I understand!! LOL

  • Yoni

    He looks trans (F2M) to me.

  • Yoni

    BIH I love my login....so yeah! BUT, it's true. Ole girl was like "I'm David Ruffin....."..

    Or was it Eddie. Hell I never really watched the movie. #fivehortbeats

  • It’s Taurus Season

    And there were two strikes. A HUGE one in 2001-2002 a few networks started it then. Then a smaller one in 2007-2008 and then the other networks were like fugg THIS. We doing it too. So now all the shows are like that.

  • Amilia A Lee

    I love the smell of books. I stay in the library! LOL

  • Buttercup

    Or in case you fell asleep on it. Good mornTing.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    I do remember that. The next year and a half of TV sucked because of that. You either had a super short season of your show or it was a HUGE gap in the season. Blech!

  • iWasteTime

    "I'm David Ruffin....."
    --------------------
    I hate y'all!!!!!!

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Ha! I love it! Go Time Jr.

  • THE OLDER SISTAH

    That's probably why over the years I have seen shows I like suddenly seem to disappear. They go on hiatus and I forget and by the time I remember they are gone. Lol

  • AnonymousRose

    Sandra you reported a story on the guy that was murdered in Georgia for the lottery money, well they caught I think 7 of them, do you have anymore news on this

  • Fendi
  • Finding Forever…

    WEEEEELLL...Who know who IS thankful (or should be) Iggy-Iggy...LOL...Crazy thing is she just said "Hey, that's part of being a basketball player. There's always something...I believe my man, and Nick is a super nice guy. This is not the kind of thing he would do."...My Question: DO YOU STILL IF THIS WAY? CAN'T DEFEND WHAT YOU DIDN'T SEE/KNOW, LOL...

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    I snuck and read WTE, too. Would go sneak it out of my mom's room when she wasn't home. My mom is a huge reader and so am I. I have a Kindle, but I still pull out my real books and read them.

  • Your Mama

    fendi need a life.

  • Fendi

    Wasn't sure.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Hi Butter!

  • Fendi

    Fendi has a life, and a much better life than yours. ??

  • It’s Taurus Season

    WHY Jesus. *snot*

    Ive seen someone who got into it with another poster who was like you must not know who I AM. I am VERY well known on this blog. I was like umm REALLY? But I hushed.

  • iWasteTime

    My mother is too. Her and my aunt would exchange bags of dime store romances too, I would read the ones with the nicest covers. I sure did ask what a pulsing member was ...lolol

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    I saw that. And I gave a bug-eyed stare at the screen and just kept scrolling. Sometimes, it's not even worth thinking too hard about some posts.

  • iWasteTime

    She tweeted and said she liked D'Angelo's film ... lolol!
    She gonna marry him though cause it is part of the "life" right?

  • It’s Taurus Season

    My sister didnt encourage me to read that stuff once she found out lmao. She was like if mom and dad find out we gonna be in some REAL trouble. You in here reading Jackie Collins and Stephen King. So dont ASK THEM about content. See me with questions. And DONT get caught either. My behind used to have to read the bad stuff in the walk in closet. *hot tears*

  • Rayne

    Lmmfaooo!??

  • Yoni

    Like Denzel said in Training Day......"King. Kong. Ain't got. NOTHIN'ONME!"

  • nicelyput32

    I saw that. I'm glad those bastards were caught.

  • Yoni

    Oh wow. Even with all the LOL and hugs and dances and just kiddings (j/k) at the end? Sorry. *excusing myself*

  • iWasteTime

    Hey Sis! I checked stub hub for Prince.
    Not one person put a ticket for sale :(

  • It’s Taurus Season

    I know he from Philly and our brothas here tend to have a layer of dust on them
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^
    *lip quiver* This is TOO FUNNY. This whole POST got mad gems in it.

    He looked goodt on that mag cover yesterday. Real nice. IMO.

  • Finding Forever…

    RIIIIGHT...IF HE'S DOING IT BEFORE THE I-DO...WEEEELLL OKAY--YOU LIKE IT, I LOVE IT...LOL...EVEN SAID SHE HAD TO GO ON TOUR & THUS WILL PUSH THE WEDDING DATE BACK, SAID THIS FOOL WAS HAPPY (PHARRELL IN THE BACKGROUND & ALL, LOL...) HE CAN STILL BE A BACHELOR. HAD NOOO IDEA A FIANCE WAS STILL A BACHELOR, BUT WHAT DO I KNOW?

  • Yoni

    Art imitating life.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    It was so random.

  • Ms..N

    LOL I was thinking the same thing great legacy and it seems tainted with white snow.

  • Finding Forever…

    Is the suit made out of comic strip? What print is that? PROBABLY A MARVEL COMICS EXCLUSIVE, LOL...ONE-OF-A-KIND, I SEE :)

  • Yoni

    I remember the strike. Folks was stuck watching Hee-Haw, The Andy Griffin Show and old country westerns for a minute!

  • Fendi

    No need to apologize. I think the pedo "joke" was kinda rough. I have been in positions where I've protected kids from pedos, so I don't play when it comes to predators. But I didn't take offense.

    I could have the cleanest home with the least amount of clutter in the best neighborhood and someone will appear and tell me I'm in the ghetto in a shack with no room, 35 other people and it is covered in everything that can crawl. Seriously LOL.

    As you can see, I don't have a life. ??? ????https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/2e45dd1bfaa87e9388420b73d46303431bda96eb468ee3e9eca8e173379188e5.jpg

  • nicelyput32

    What do you think about his suit up top?

  • Yoni

    A suit Diddy prolly had on reserve for his next up and coming group.

  • http://Copblock.org aDingoDrankMyBabies

    Mornin?? Thanks for the warning. I'll refrain fr Sandra slander today? Until the open post that is??

  • It’s Taurus Season

    YES. I mean I get it. If they ever go on strike the networks will have enough withheld episodes of each show to tide us over. But its SUCKS for us as viewers. Maybe not NOW though with stuff like Netflix and other services. That was ROUGH.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    You got mail.

  • nicelyput32

    Very unnecessarily ugly.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    That the wardrobe department on "Empire" is DEAD WRONG (Biggie voice)

  • Ms..N

    Born again virgin my new pet peeve for 2016.

  • nicelyput32

    ???

  • http://Copblock.org aDingoDrankMyBabies

    Hater says what?! I didn't lie...Well known and coveted?? it's no secret. Much like your analingus skills??

  • Fendi

    We're all entitled to our preferences. I really shouldn't care. But I really wonder how his sons would've looked had their moms been Black. I bet they would've been handsome. He is so handsome and brown, tall, with a solid build and beautiful teeth - just a beautiful creation. He was fine ALL his life.

    Then his sons appear and I'm thinking someone made a mistake identifying them. Nope.

  • Fendi

    Nooooo!!! Just when I thought I found an ally. Smh. It took me a minute to get into it, but once I did, it was on!!!

    Dang.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    Not YOUR behind sir! We ALL know who you ill.

    *slaps you cause you know you lookin GOOD* Whatchu doing up so early? Good morning!

  • iWasteTime

    Stop making me laugh, when I smile, they engage. FOH!!!

  • http://Copblock.org aDingoDrankMyBabies

    ???? I just look too good for these people????

  • Ms..N

    Lol it has a hidden realness factor to it. I was surprised at how great the writing is on this show. It reminds me of Girlfriends.

  • felinelurker

    But did you see the part about the comment the dean made. About the white fathers may not want to see them picking up their daughters, so could he please park down the street from the dorms, lol!

  • iWasteTime

    I was so off the Kindle. I got one the XMas before I had Jr. I could hold him and read, with one hand!! I was hooked. I still have a few books though

  • Yoni

    I felt a "stiffness" in your font. Didn't mean to come off as malicious or offensive (I understand you say you didn't take it that way). I joke a LOT on here (and in real life) and sometimes my humor is dark. Some ppl usually don't know how to take it/me. I speak a lot in sarcasm and word play. I'm trying to do better. Hence why I put A LOT of "LOL's" and "LMAO's" at the end of my post, because for the most part, I REALLY AM joking when I say things on here. Again, I apologize.

    :peace: <------- really hands up don't shoot, I've come in peace LOL #see

    Reminds me of a video that is going around RIGHT NOW of a little boy named, SIR. His parent is in the background singing while he's "walking - HONEY"....but that SONG is stuck in my head.....

    "He wears his clothes like this...because he can. because he can..."

    Yall HAVE TO see it! The lil boy is STRUTTING, HONEY!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Lol.

  • Yoni

    Headed there now. Uno momento.

  • Fendi

    I would never shoot! I may spray silly string at you, because that's my style. Other than that, I would never shoot!!! Not verbally or literally. No way, Yo-nay.

    Peace and blessings! ????

  • Ms..N

    Lmao this made me laugh so hard.Neighbors like that can be a pain in the assets and lower property values.

  • Fendi

    It is so well written. Then, I must ask why it's your pet peeve?

  • felinelurker

    Fell asleep

  • Ms..N

    OMG I hope it was a womans head?

  • Fendi

    Your hard laughter is what I experience when I see and/or speak of her. She wants so desperately to garner attention. The only thing she needs to pay attention to is her sew-in. She leaves trails of hair wherever she dwells.

    She better not ever evade law enforcement. ???

  • Fendi

    He was standing a respectable distance away from a man who was seated at a table. The man's head was facing the person who took the pic. Y'all reaching!!! ????

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    I tried to resist. I used to work in book publishing so I kinda felt like a traitor. But as a commuter it is just so much easier. And when I figured out how to get library books and unlock them so I have them permanently, that was it! I'm Kindle user for life!

  • It’s Taurus Season

    New post.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    Hola

  • felinelurker

    Hey gal! How was Easter?

  • It’s Taurus Season

  • Your Mama

    lies fendi tells.

  • Smith Jane

    Am I the only one that cringed anytime there's a scene with the Hispanic chick and Hakeem? Ugh. Girlie can sing but I find her incredibly annoying. Like, why can't we ever have s show that doesn't include Hispanics? Damn.

  • Buttercup

    Thanks babe. I checked as well. My homeboy is trying to pull some strings and get me a pair.

    There was a limit of 2 in the initial release, so even the scalpers are holding on to them.

  • Buttercup

    Hey boo! :kiss:

  • Meme81

    I have to agree. Even by ratchet reality standards it's not what it once was.

  • Charallday

    Dead

  • Baron

    Sandra, could you post able the female student in San Francisco who confronted this white male student because he has dreads? Apparently, the person who recorded the event wants to press charges against her. I'd love to read what people think about this. Especially since there was some discussion about white people and dreads a week ago.

  • imright

    it annoys me that they go months w/o the show them jus pick up w a new episode like ....? wait wats goins on??? should at least play the last episode b4 starting the new episode ...a refresher.

  • A D N

    Noooo, I like Gabby on the show. Hopefully we see her more.

  • A D N

    The husband leaves early because he can't stand to be around his wife. But yes, I agree with you that he is getting his happiness somewhere...

  • Molly Church

    Hate 2 admit it. But every single time they spoke. I keep thinking the same dam thing. ?

  • Molly Church

    Unbelievable how color struck he was. This man wouldn't even look a Blk woman's way, ?but claim he had sooo much love for his "Mommy. Yea, Right?

  • Molly Church

    Yep, that's how it seems. ??Was telling anyone & everyone 2 kiss his "Azz. He's lucky someone didn't come for him. I respect his hussle. But his arrogance & Preference for the Pink Toe is "Disgusting?

  • The Mrs.

    Thanks Auntie!

  • THE Queen

    who gives a damn about all of this debauchery.. IM NOT WATCHING GAY BS

  • Shana

    Thank you for the Cliff Notes!

  • Ms..N

    I was thinking the same thing how a distinguished man with such credentials choose the women he chose. It's very strange how many black males actors were all for black power movement and then they completely go to the left with their wife choices..

  • Vonn

    Yesssss. Fred was like....long as they get in the car.

  • Vonn

    Yesssss. Fred was like....long as they get in the car.

  • Fendi

    This!!! And the guys who preach Black power/progress today are no better.

  • Fendi

  • Fendi

    You're bothered. Perhaps you should get the life you claim I'm lacking. ???

    Bye, jealous.

  • Ms..N

    I have a similar experience I live in a cul de sac and one of my neighbors has a low class trashy daughter no job running with a loser like herself with no job ..An have the nerve to have some mutts running around in my yard..I love animals but child Animal Control will be on this hookers ass soon as they try me with that ish again..

  • Luv Pitties

    Is that the show where at some party the grandmother called the man a devil and told him to leave and after he left the skies cleared? I was dozing but I know I caught the middle of something.

  • Ms..N

    I meant pet peeve in a good way..My new guilty pleasure..
