Before I went on my vaca, I saw headlines that Omarion, the “Color Struck“, “Exotical Obsessed” lead singer of B2K canceled a London Nightclub performance due to the club denying entry to ladies because they were considered “too dark” (yes, this also happens in other countries).
Now, I was shocked when I saw this headline. I grew up in LA during the Immature/B2K era and if you know anything about 99.9% of their background dancers/video girls…THEY WERE LIGHT, BIRACIAL, MULTIRACIAL, “EXOTICAL”, HELL ANYTHING BUT A BLACK FEMALE WAS AROUND THEM (MAYBE ONE OR TWO TO KEEP THEIR “WE REALLY DO LIKE BLACK GIRLS” FANS AROUND) but, I digress. Perhaps he’s a changed man….(maybe).
Check out some of the headlines I saw regarding this BS.
And check out my beautiful sistahs/thickettes below.

The two girls in the middle, Reisha and Tasha were denied access to the club but their friends Lin Mei and Zalika Miller weren’t having it.
On the surface, everything seems great. Two friends are fighting against the club and trying to get celebrities to boycott the club as well. So what’s my issue?
That’s right! Almost every blog, magazine and newspaper chose to write in the headlines that these women were denied entrance because of their skin, but refused to mention it was also due to their bodies. If you look at the picture, Zalika is the last girl standing on the left. She is a chocolate sistah as well but appears to be thinner than Reisha and Tasha. Clearly the discrimination has to do with more than just their color.
Being denied to party due to your weight is still discrimination! But of course weight discrimination is always a taboo topic to talk about. Well, dammit not here! We will continue to talk about it until weight discrimination ends.
Reisha, Tasha, Lin Mei and Zalika continue to stand up for what is right! Let people know that “too dark” AND “overweight” ignorance should not be allowed.
Some of you may have an issue with me using the word h*e. Well, I can’t help you. The words fits for some “women” and those women usually call themselves h*es as well. So, moving on….
Sigh. As I watched ratchet reality reruns, I saw a few episodes of “Basketball Wives LA”. There was a recent beef between newcomer, Meghan James and old bucket h*e, Draya Michele. Draya already had an issue with Meghan when she lied about being friends with crazy thickette, Jackie. However, things really went downhill when lipo Draya said that Meghan has a F.U.P.A which stands for Fat Upper P**sy Area (yes, ignorant I know). Draya continued to talk about Meghan’s weight in other episodes as well. Now, I don’t expect much from Draya since we all know how she got on the show in the first place (cough, cough groupie). Still, the comments I have seen about Meghan has me a little confused. There are actually people who agree with Draya about Meghan being fat.
Honey, if Meghan is fat then I weigh 2,000 pounds. She is far from being fat. But, even IF she was, does Draya have the right to talk about her? Furthermore, why does Draya, who is a known h*e, get more respect than someone who may have a stomach? So this made me wonder…do you get more respect being a loose sleezy than being thick? I can be untrustworthy, arrogant, rude and have more miles on me than a 1970 Buick, but if I’m skinny then all is right with the world? Maybe I need to move to another Universe…….your thoughts?
Hunty, I thought I would never see the day! A thickette on a world tour…and NO she is not singing, she is dancing.
Allison is going on tour with the original THICKSATIONAL Diva, my girl, JANET JACKSON! Of course Janet is the first icon to bring a Thickette on tour and I hope others will follow. Check out Allison’s reel and when she found out she was going on tour with Janet Jackson!
Sigh…I was hoping for a miracle. I will always remember her as the little Thickette who was so full of life. People dogged Bobbi Kris, Whitney and Bobby throughout her entire life. I can’t imagine what she endured. Rest in peace Krissy. Praying for the Houston and Brown family.
I AM SOOOOOOOOOO HAPPY FOR ADELE. ADELE IS EXPECTING HER FIRST CHILD AND MADE THE ANNOUNCEMENT ON HER WEBSITE TODAY!
“I’m delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together,” she wrote. “I wanted you to hear the news direct from me, obviously we’re over the moon and very excited but please respect our privacy at this precious time.” (Source)
I respect this thickette so much! She keeps her personal and professional life separate, isn’t an artist who always wants attention and can WOW a crowd with her vocals alone and not her a** shaking. Congrats Adele!
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.

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.
For all of my thickettes who want to act this is for you. I am just the messenger….
