@your epiphany @melissamak007  I know what you mean. They are really good together. It reminds me of 80's shows where the chemistry would never be acted on until almost the end of the show. You are so right. There were less ads after the mid-season finale. I think it was the US Weekly blog? The women posting didn't think of Abbie (as beautiful as she is) as a viable option for Ichabod... I need to check out The Flash.

I watched the fist season. I love Nicole Beharie. Tom Mison is HOT. I thought the show was good. Just creepy enough. It's funny, when I went on a blog or two, it seemed like the women commenting (who I assume were White women) denied any chemistry or romantic notions between Abbie and Ichabod. That was telling. I hope it doesn't get cancelled. I will definitely send an email.

@Lptinvestor At the end of the day, she was sharing her experience. You got absolutely nothing from it. Your advice wasn't solicited. Most of the women here come to this site quite often. I don't think you struck any nerves as much as you got on them. So, why don't you take your own advice?

@Lissa0516 Thank you for sharing. It was typically not so cool with the family when I dated Italian men. I know it's tough on you. But, you sound so assured and grounded where you are now.

Mamie, where can we find more of your writing? I have been in two relationships with Asian men. My experience was different. But, I love the way you write and how honest you are. You're beautiful, by the way.

The bride looks beautiful. Gorgeous couple! I never considered a winter wedding either. But, these pics would make anyone give it some thought.

@Freespirit888 OK. I thought I was the only one who thought that about TI and Will I Am. I can't be so bothered with either one of them. I just wish the sheeple would wake up.

@Nikki J @shelliebe Someone else mentioned this before. Gone are the days where you actually had to have talent to sell records.  Do you know who Jean Grae is? She has a big international fan base. So many people have said that her skills can out do any male rappers. So you are so right. Good doesn't always equal who and what is selling.

@Nikki J I loved Jessie William before he started speaking out. I love how he always has concise, clear cut arguments for the points he makes. No shooting off at the mouth. Gorgeous and smart! I have seen his wife... Beautiful.

@lily ot valley @melissamak007 Chaka is one of my favorite female vocalists too. House of Pain was clearly proud of their Irish roots. No assimilating or, changing to gain records sales. All the while insulting other races. I still listen to them. Mc Serch from 3rd Bass is married to a Black woman. He has been for many years. Again, no "appropriation"...

@lily ot valley House of Pain and 3rd Bass never had the accusations of "cultural appropriation" when they were popular either. But, then again Twitter wasn't around at that time. They were never heard making offensive comments about other races.

I don't listen to Iggy. I can't be bothered with her blaccent. Her fake butt. Everything. I do like Azealia though. Broke With Expensive Taste is a favorite. The offensive things Iggy's said (and gets away with) validate everything Azealia is talking about. I just don't like that she's becoming known for fighting people on Twitter instead of her music. It must be very frustrating. Knowing you are just as good (if not better) than someone in the same genre of music. But, you get pushed to the side and silenced for calling it out. I am not going to discuss TI coming to Iggy's defense every two minutes. Precious Princess that she is. Q-Tip recently Tweeted Iggy. What he said made a lot of sense.

@zimekcyn @Lady Humor I have been hearing for quite sometime that Carols daughter products haven't been as good as when they first came out. That line and Miss Jessie's usually get the most negative reviews. Even though what works for every head of hair differs.

I've used one Camille Rose product. I loved it. But, due to my being a product junkie (as I've mentioned numerous times) I have to watch what I purchase. I have heard nothing but good things. I wanted to try the twisting butter next. Thank you ladies for letting me treat the group as my personal PJA (product junkie anonymous) meeting too!

So, there is another show with a similar premise. Just as I was silently praying it would get cancelled, here we go again. I believe there are 4 Black women helping a White woman find her "inner Black woman". Deep sigh. You're right, though. There are too many Black women ready to shuck and jive for money.

I have heard of MopTop. But due to product junkie tendencies... I could not purchase. When my recovery reaches a level I find satisfactory, I'll try the products out.

@CassieM12345  That's terrible! When I went to Mexico, some of the men were very aggressive. Some got touchy feely. But, nothing I couldn't deal with. Or, at least they got the point when I said no.

@Aquagirl1Nice! My aunt lives in Santiago de Cuba. So, that's where I go. It's as crowded as Havana. My grandmother left Cuba when she was 18. She went to live in the Bahamas. The Dominican Republic is nice. I liked the cable car. Barbados is on the list. For sure.

I also have a few friends that watch those shows. One would try to get me to watch Love and Hip Hop. No thank you. I don't watch a ton of TV. I read most of the time. The only "reality" shows I watched were What Not to Wear and, I still watch Intervention. Sure, most reality shows make whoever is on them look bad. But, as I was saying to my cousin (who is one of the people I mentioned before) there are too many people out there that seem to want to treat Black women as a monolith. I don't perpetuate any of the stereotypes seen on those shows. That some people often seem surprised by that is what scares me.
