This summer it’s all about being in tune with your STARPLAYER and living the life with SWAGIC SAUCE! I for one believe that we all should just live the wild life for a change and go for it all this summer 2013: Meaning whatever you want to do — just do it!
There are a few things on radar that I wanted to share with you to get your going for the summer and everything is FREE of Charge. Share this blog post with others and let me know how your summer turns out.
Finally, I got the chance to see the movie CLAUDINE a couple of weeks ago starring Diahann Carroll and James Earl Jones. It’s one of the best that has graced my screen in a long time. I feel so bad that I finally got to see this in my mid-thirties. s/o to all the 70s babies you will bask in happiness after you see this ish! If you ever wanted to know if things have changed in the Black community about survival of the fittest, look no further your answer is on the way. Sit back, pop some corn, and get that wine glass ready (or whatever beverage you pushing), because this is going to be a film to remember!

BET is trying to do better — I think. I rather not spell out their acronyms. They have gone scandal on Black sisters and enlisted Gabrielle Union to revive their outlook on the independent woman of color with Being Mary Jane (a movie turned original series). The series was created by producer Mara Brock-Akil. I was so excited to watch the supertrailer and it looks like it’s going to be pretty good! The movie, starring Gabrielle Union, debuts on the cable channel on July 2 at 10:30/9:30PM CST. The character of revolves around the main protagonist Mary Jane Paul (played by Union), a successful talk show host, who on the surface has an enviable lifestyle. Still, her life is far from perfect. Ladies, if you loved Scandal — then definitely give Being Mary Jane a try!
