For a very long time I really hated this word. I felt “hater” was an overused word that people used even when you simply stated your opinion and for the most part this is still true, HOWEVER I’ve come to realize that there are truly haters in the world and I have come up with my own definition.
THE HATER – A hater is someone who takes their disgust on things that you do or are involved in to a whole new level. Now let me give you an example of what is not a hater to me.
Blogging, tweeting or facebooking about your opinion.
* These 3 things have become people’s personal diaries. Everyone should have the right to post whatever the hell they want to on their blogs, twitter and facebook because it belongs to them. If you put something on their about me, my style, my creativity etc. that’s your opinion. I can’t do anything about that and really don’t want to, because I would not want someone to come on my personal pages and tell me what I should do. Now if my love ones or fans say something hey that’s on you. You put it out there be ready to take it.
When it becomes a point where every time I go to a site and I have something up you are putting your negative comments every where….that’s when I become puzzled and straight scared for my safety because there is clearly some emotions involved. It takes a lot for someone to go on different sites and talk about how much they don’t like something right? So why would they do it…….oh its simple they are THE HATER.
You also know someone is a hater when they get super emotional when someone confronts them on their hate. They start cursing, calling you names, and play the victim like typical haters/emotional vampires do. If you can’t express yourself in an intelligent way about this “opinion” you only claim to have (not personal) maybe to the core of you there is also a lot of inner hate, that brings the HATE out towards others.
Sometimes I like to talk to my haters, not because I want them to stop hating, hell I need them to hate because that makes me better. But I really want to see their logic in going to different sites or different people to say the same ish they’ve been saying for hours, days, weeks, months, YEARS!
Ok I get it, you may not like me, you may not like my writing, creativity, nose, belly, moles, nostrils but WHY DO YOU WANT THE WORLD TO KNOW? Why take time out of your days to keep talking about how you don’t like something.
Well I guess T.I. said it best……IT’S THEIR JOB!
No matter how much you try to talk to people in a civilized way, they will always get defensive because they don’t even know why they are doing the things that they are doing. That is the only way they know how to be. It has to be a horrible way to live but hey someone has to do the job right? Just pray for them and keep it moving….so to THE HATERS out there….this is for you.
Muah I love ya haters! Have a thicksational day!

Thicksational Mogul Oprah has decided to dedicated her network Saturdays to thicksational women.
Let me give you a recap…
Miss Robbie and her family start off the evening and after watching the show you will be VERY hungry. One hour of fried chicken, yams, mac & cheese and drama always makes a good show. Miss Robbie is a former backup singer for Ike and Tina Turner and went from barely making it to becoming a self made millionaire. Her spoiled son and nephew drive her crazy while she is trying to finish her 3rd restaurant in St. Louis. I think this a show that anyone can appreciate or at least admire the food.
Super model, Beverly Johnson decides to open up her home to her estrange daughter and thicksational model Anansa Sims. From the beginning of the show I was very puzzled, I mean the vibe that Anansa was giving her mother on the TV screen was just off. I didn’t understand it and definitely didn’t understand what was her purpose of moving in if she didn’t want to be bothered by her. Beverly does seem to be overbearing, however most children know how to handle their parent’s personality after so long but Anansa after one night couldn’t take it. Later in the show both women explain the reason why there is tension between the two which I feel will definitely be a healing show (I hope). This show can heal people who might be going through the same issues with their parents.
I like Niecy Nash. I think she is funny in her own corky way. However this show is too much. Why is it too much? IT’S TOO SCRIPTED! Yes all reality shows are scripted however I don’t want it to be so obvious and cheesy. The show starts off with Niecy and her man wanting to go skating with her kids. The kids decided they don’t want to go and give the excuse that God is calling them. This show almost seems like she is preparing her kids AND HER MOM for the acting world. This reality show is set up like a pilot and Niecy is hoping to get a sitcom after this. I am not really feeling the show so far but maybe it will grow on me.

Can you imagine, Queen Latifah, Jill Scott and Phylicia Rashad on the big screen together?
Well guess what it is happening! Sony Pictures has signed our thickettes on for the “Steel Magnolias” Remake.
Produced by Sony Pictures Television, Steel Magnolias chronicles the lives and friendship of six women in Louisiana: M’Lynn (Queen Latifah), Ouiser (Woodard), Clairee (Phylicia Rashad), Truvy (Scott), Annelle (Oduye) and Shelby (Condola Rashad). Supporting each other through their triumphs and tragedies, they congregate at Truvy’s beauty shop to ponder the mysteries of life and death, husbands and children — and hair and nails — all the important topics that bring women together. In the 1989 movie, the roles were played by Sally Field (M’Lynn), Dolly Parton (Truvy), Shirley MacLaine (Ouiser), Darryl Hannah (Annelle), Olympia Dukakis (Clairee), and Julia Roberts (Shelby). The remake, which is slated to begin production next month in Atlanta for a debut later this year, will be executive produced by Craig Zadan, Neil Meron, Latifah, her producing partner Shakim Compere and Shelby Stone.

Johnna Knows Good Food has the best recipes! They are quick to make and some of them are pretty healthy as well. So my thicksational cooks, here’s a new recipe you may want to try. Enjoy!
1 package Gold ‘n Plump 90/10 Ground Chicken
1 cup Feta Cheese
1 large onion
2 cloves garlic (*finely diced)
Kosher Salt (*to taste)
Pepper (*to taste)
10-12 Grape Leaves (*I used the bottled grape leaves making it easier to clean)
Carefully remove the grape leaves from the jar and unroll. In a large bowl, run cold water over the leaves to remove the brine. Drain and set aside. In a medium skillet, add in 2 tbsp. olive oil and bring to medium heat. Add the onions and Gold ‘n Plump ground chicken to the skillet, cook until meat is browning and onions become translucent. Add the garlic to the skillet and season mixture with salt and pepper. Remove from heat and spoon mixture alongside the feta cheese into individual grape leaves. Roll the grape leaves into a cigar shape and fold in ends (*Google has multiple good resources for rolling grape leaves). Bake in the oven at 325 degrees for about 5-10 minutes or until leaves are just about to crisp. Serve.
*Johnna’s tip: I love ground chicken and Gold ‘n Plump’s ground chicken was tender enough to mesh well with my grape leaves. Grape leaves are sensitive and tear easily so it’s important that whatever you put inside not to have a rough abrasive texture. I also decided to think outside the box with my Gold ‘n Plump ground chicken, why not play with grape leaves?? Instead of sticking to the safety net of old spaghetti or chili, pair your ground chicken with grape leaves.
*Johnna’s 2nd tip: I paired with a rice vinegar sauce that literally took me two minutes- 1 part rice vinegar, freshly chopped cilantro, 1 dash of worchestshire sauce and 1 clove (diced) garlic. Serve.

I hope this is not true. I love me some Paula Deen.
A former employee of Paula Deen is suing her and is claiming sexual harassment and stated the N-word was used in the restaurant.
Lisa Jackson, the former general manager of Uncle Bubba’s Oyster House in Savannah, Ga., co-owned by Deen and her brother Earl “Bubba” Hiers, seeks unspecified damages for sexual harassment, infliction of emotional distress, and other charges in the suit.
Jackson, 48, who left her job in August 2010, claimed Hiers watched porn at work, forcibly kissed and spat on her, physically menaced staffers and repeatedly used racial epithets in her 33-page complaint.
But some of the most scandalous accusations in the suit — filed Monday in state court in Savannah, Ga. — are aimed at Deen.
In one alleged incident, Deen dropped the n-word when Jackson, who is white, asked the popular Food Network chef what she wanted the servers to wear to Hiers’ wedding in 2007.
“Well, what I would really like is a bunch of little n*gg*rs to wear long-sleeve white shirts, black shorts and black bow ties,” Deen said, according to the suit. “But we can’t do that because the media would be on me about that.”
Jackson recalled another instance when Hiers stormed into her office while she was in a meeting and said, “I wish I could put all those n*gg*rs [in the kitchen] on a boat to Africa.”
The lawsuit further states that Hiers often called Jackson “almost Jewish” or “my little Jew girl” when citing her ability to save money.
She quit after suffering from panic attacks and chest pains, her attorney, S. Wesley Woolf, said.
“She could no longer take it physically, mentally or emotionally,” Woolf told The Daily. (Source)
