The History of Me in Music

Music has been a big part of my life from the time I was a baby. When I was little I would watch my mom getting ready to go out and dancing in the house to music.

Kenya Moore Booty Bootcamp Review

If you know me you know I love The Real Housewives Series and one of my favorites is Atlanta. I think Kenya Moore former Ms. USA is a great addition this season. That being said when I was asked by the wonderful @bookieboo from Mamavation if I wanted to review her DVD Kenya Moore: Booty Boot Camp , I was like "YEAH" I want a stallion booty.

ENOUGH is ENOUGH


I feel like I should make a confession... I am fat !!! There I said it. I was always the girl who never worried about her weight. I ate whatever I wanted and working out was not in my vocabulary. I gained 50 lbs w/ my 1st pregnancy and lost it in a month. My second pregnancy same thing. After 5 kids I weigh now more than I did when I was nine months pregnant. I am not going to lie and say I am this way because of kids or even because of food. I am FAT because I do not exercise. Now like I said before I never worked out or dieted but I was very active. Dancing all weekend never sitting down. That is the only way I can explain this weight gain. Sure the Dr. says my metabolism is slow but that is an excuse as far as I am concerned. I will be a bad mom if I leave my kids and workoutbut the truth is I am being a bd mom by not doing it. I think once I make this statement and put it out in the UNIVERSE I will have no more excuses. So here I go. NO MORE EXCUSES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The 2012 Academy Awards



I love an award show and The Academy Awards this year did not disappoint. I thought the opening number with Billy Crystal was very engaging and not cheesy. The celebrities were all dressed very elegant. I did not see any wild dressers this year except for Sasha Baron Cohen as The Admiral during the red carpet. I loved his red carpet moment with Ryan Seacrest from E channels Red Carpet Live. Anjelina Jolie and Brad Pitt looked like 2 wax figures, I am still trying to think if that is a good thing. George Clooney and Stacy Kiebler looked very elegant. Octavia Spencer and Viola Davis were dressed very nice and I loved Violas natural hair. I was very happy with all the winners as well. The speeches were short and seemed heart felt. I think Billy Crystal and Chris Rock should alternate every year to host because they are the ones that keep the show moving along.

Why am I so upset about Chris Brown & Rihanna

I don't know if I am getting old or what but this is really bothering me . I keep hearing everyone give their 2 cents on what should happen to them and who is at fault. In the beginning I thought it was a private matter and it should be handled like that. Domestic Violence isn't a joke or a punchline to someones joke. Rihanna was a victim and her privacy should have been respected as one. The first thing out of most peoples mouths was "What did SHE do to make him do that". And well Chris Brown was a perpetrator and in these wonderful United States of ours was considered innocent until proven guilty. Rihanna is like a lot of young ladies strong and proud and does not want to look like a victim so she acted out by acting like she was FINE. Running around with different men, partying all the time , making music, always smiling  and being extremely sexual. She WAS NOT a VICTIM. Or at least that is what she wanted us to see. Chris Brown on the other hand tried to tone down a bit. He wanted to look like he was the victim of the BIG BAD SYSTEM. He was pushed to a point of no return and reacted just like anyone else would, right. No WRONG !!!!! He has thrown numerous tantrums and has admitted to having anger management issues. I understand he witnessed domestic violence as a child but that is no excuse for his behavior. He threw a temper tantrum at GMA and could have hurt innocent people. He went through his Anger Management and got great praise from the judge that he was doing a great job. But enough is enough... Chris Brown and Rihanna are 2 adults now that are in the public eye and no matter if they did not sign up to be role models to our kids. They must realize that a lot of kids and young adults for that matter are watching what they do. No matter what a woman or a man does to you it is your choice how you react to it. Rihanna is a beautiful, smart, talented young lady and should be treated like that but it won't happen until she wants it to happen. Chris Brown is a good looking, strong , smart young man and also should be treated like that but again it won't happen until he wants it to. I hear on the radio and tv people saying that they are so in love and meant for each other. That Chris Brown made a mistake and was punished and we should forgive him. Let those two be together they are perfect for each other. Chris Brown and Rihanna just put 2 new singles out of remixes of their songs.I seriously doubt that they put it out themselves of course other people did this for PROFIT...This morning I heard one of my favorite DJs say that "can you imagine the sex they must have because their music is so passionate". Come on now this makes me sick to my stomach. Imagine those kids who also heard that and think well I guess it must be ok then.  I would hate for this relationship to end with a bad ending. Being an adult means saying I screwed up, I LOVE you but I know I am not right for you. Love doesn't gives us the right to hurt each other with words or actions. Love is wanting the best for the other person and for yourself. Don't get me wrong I am not saying that people can't change but it is pretty hard to do when everyone around you is applauding you. I listen to both Rihanna and Chris Brown and think they make wonderful music and are beyond talented. I just don't want them to be another statistic. Because lets face it that would be a better story to the Media than living happily ever after. As we see on the news celebrities are worth more DEAD, in jail or in rehab. Remember Charlie Sheen "Winning" don't see much of him now do we. Britney Spears running around barefoot and shaving her head. Those are the stories that make money and headlines. We need to applaud the people when they are doing the right thing make that Headlines and maybe this nonsense will stop.

Who Am I Again

I started off as daughter of
At 17 became Mom of
At 19 wife of
At 21 ex-wife of and Mom of 2
At 22 girlfriend of
At 25 Mom again
At 26 Mom again
At 29 Mom for the 5th and last time
Now at 37 I am still girlfriend of and still Mom of
But along the way I lost who "I" was
I guess I need to find that person and the journey in doing that is both scary and exciting because what if "She" could have been all the things she was meant to be and wasted all those years.
