I thought the Mike Tyson interview on Oprah earlier this week was a HAM. It’s great for her and the ratings but ultimately how does this actually benefit any of us? I wasn’t sure there’d be any benefit to watching it as I didn’t need that episode to tell me Tyson has serious problems. Since [...]
I know somebody actually paid money to see Chris Rock’s “Good Hair” MOCKumentary. The question is how did it fare? Did your curiosity take over and you simply had to go? The pre-release buzz was so great that even some black men went to see it – which of course tells me there was some [...]
I could actually take the “Hair” out of the title of this post and leave it as is. Black women angst should NOT be open for public consumption!! I find these conversations to be challenging, painful and difficult. They require time and great care as we sort through things. The issue is they’re often full [...]
I’m glad I decided to watch yesterday’s Oprah Live episode because she had a follow-up interview with Mackenzie Phillips. They discussed the reaction from family and friends. Mac’s sister Chynna sat on Oprah’s stage to publicly declare she believed the allegations as they had been revealed years earlier. What else can I say?

Houston discusses her friendship with Michael Jackson. One thing I’ve found interesting is how isolated and lonely so many of these celebrities are. They have so much talent and so many resources. It seems as if they get lost in the mix trying to self-protect. Houston says she’s feeling the love she has [...]
Houston discusses the decision to leave her marriage. Sigh. I am really having a problem with the language and tone of how she insists on placing ALL the blame on her ex-husband. Has anyone else noticed how she also lays territorial claim to her daughter as HERS. Perhaps some children who’ve lived through their parents’ [...]
I admit to being captivated by this interview but I think a few things need to be made clear. This is obviously a very controlled discussion. I’d definitely label Bobby Brown a DBR black male but after one hour of hearing about all the bad things he did yesterday I’ve had enough. Whitney Houston CHOSE [...]
Hmm is bragging about the drugs you use a sign of recovery? That jet set lifestyle has its downside. Houston is describing the enablers and hangers-on. She also discusses achieving a certain level of fame. The description of the isolation and distance between two people caught in an addiction and dysfunctional relationship is difficult to [...]
