Scared Famous or Famously Scared??

VH1 has started a new series called “Scared Famous” which airs on Monday evenings at 9pm eastern time.

It’s hosted by Redman himself, with a cast of ten well known reality celebrities! A handful are models while the other are from Mob Wives and Love & Hip Hop.

Cast: Safaree Samuals, Yung Joc, Erica Mena, Tiffany (New York) Pollard, Drita D’Avanzo, Eva Marcille, Don Benjamin, Alaska Thunderfuck, the only and only Sky from Black Inc Crew, and Miss Nikki Baby (eliminated)

This Monday will be airing episode 4 of the series. The next episode will be picking up during the elimination round between Erica Mena and Yung Joc.

Without giving too much away, I really hope that Erica Mena goes home. I’m not a fan of hers at all. She was messy during her air time on LHHNY and she’s just as messy now. Plus, she completely went bonkers during the previous episode and turned her back on Yung Joc, another LHH cast member as well as a partner in her alliance. Joc didn’t even vote to throw Erica in the elimination round, he voted for Sky! So I would like to see karma get her.

I personally think she went after him due to jealousy. She was mad at him and Safaree for messing around with Tiffany… hashtag petty ???

Enough about that though. Let me give you the overall idea of the show!

When I first watched it, I thought it was corny, because the cast is staying in the ‘haunted’ Louisiana house with constant paranormal activity. But when you watch it, you can see how staged all the activity is. But after the second episode, it finally clicked. It’s more like a haunted house attraction. The cast must know that it’s set up, but given the stories that the place is haunted, when things start to happen, it legit causes fear. Just like when I go to a haunted attraction every year for Halloween, I know it’s fake, but I still get scared.

It makes for GREAT TV! It’s legitimately hilarious to watch them scream and freak out! Joc got to me the most because his opening scenes were him saying he’s a big man and isn’t scared of anything but then he’s running through the house screaming! I swear it’s worth the watch. It’s so damn comical.

Don’t get the wrong idea about the show though. It’s a strategy & elimination game. The cast has to do these challenges together to build money for their charities, but also have to make sure they’re not being the weakest during the challenges, because at the end, everyone must vote on who they think was the weakest, and that person must choose who they want to battle against in the elimination round. So we all know this makes good drama, due to backstabbing and flakey individuals!

As I stated above, all the money they make goes towards their charities that they’re representing, which I think is amazing.

I do believe they got the idea from MTV because they began doing that last year with The Challenge series. So there’s a little tea for you.

If you’re also interested in MTV’s The Challenge charity series, the new season airs Tuesday, November 21st!

A Transgender’s Horrid High School Story

At the bottom of this page, you will find a link to a story about a transgender man names Casey Hoke, who went through some horrid harassment during his time at DuPont Manual High School, right here in the heart of Louisville Metro.

He was a senior back in 2015 when his principal, Jerry Mayes, saw him coming out of the men’s bathroom, confronted him, and began questioning him about things that were honestly none of the principals business!

The article is gut wrenching, if I do say so myself. I instantly became full of anger. First of all, if you see a ‘problem’ with a student, you take it up with the students parents, you don’t take matters into your own hands and begin questioning things in their personal life, I don’t care how old the student is.

But it doesn’t stop there. He did more than ask the student what procedures he’s had on his genitalia, — yeah you heard me correctly, he asked those kinds of questions— he also had multiple meetings with his teachers regarding the subject, even though they were already aware of Casey’s situation, due to the fact that an article about his story was posted in the school board a couple of years prior.

When asked by Casey, why any of this would concern him, all he was able to mumble out was “if I get into trouble because of you…”

excuse my French, but how fucking disgusting are we trying to be in the year 2017? Or even 2015??? Plus, if everyone literally knew about it since his freshman year and hasn’t complained, then where would the problem be? Besides in your own small minded brain? …

Anyways, In this article, you will also see that the principal also called teachers “cute” little pet names, even after they asked him not to, which made said teachers feel very uncomfortable. And let’s not even dig into the fact that he strongly opposed Manual’s Black Student Union & Gay Straight Transgender Alliance, but made sure to take full credit for.

If you ask me, I think this so called principal should be let go. He overstepped many boundaries within a single year of holding his position. He doesn’t deserve the title. He clearly has some issues he needs to work out before taking on such a big responsibility of making sure a building full of students and teachers are all well taken care of.

I’m very happy to help spread Casey’s word and to help bring light to the situations we face here in Louisville.

I had my own incidents in middle and high school, so I know it’s bigger than one school or one person. Time for Louisville to step into the new millennium.

iPhone: Plus Size or X?!

I’m pretty sure I do these comparisons every year because I am most definitely an apple guy!

I am actually going to be getting a new phone soon, & of course I will be sticking with apple, but I struggle between the two new models that just dropped, so I figured we could make this a fun exercise were we go through to compare & contrast them together!

I am all about big phones. The first big model I got was clearly the 6 Plus, then I upgraded to the 6S Plus, which is why I am only looking at the 8 Plus and the X models.

Looks wise, the iPhone X just takes my breath away. It’s literally all glass, but that’s also its downfall, it shatters so easily, as reports have said. Of course I would get the most fabulous phone case to put it in, but I’m also the kind of person who likes to take it out every now & then just to enjoy it in its natural form, so this could be very concerning for me.

iPhone X & The 8/8 Plus models

Another cool thing about the X model is that it has a 5.8” super retina HD display screen, whereas the iPhone 8 Plus model only has a .5” retina HD display screen. What is the difference? There is no home button on the X model!

But for the 8 Plus model, it’s actually larger than the X model. The 8P is 6.24” by 3.07” whereas the X model is 5.65” by 2.79”. So the 8P model is winning in that department.

iPhone X

The X model only comes in two colors at this time: Silver & space grey. I’m not a fan. I’ve had a white & gold phone ever since I switched to apple. The 8P comes in silver, space grey, & gold. Again, the 8P is winning.

Both models are installed with 12MP wide angle and telephoto cameras, along with the dual optical image stabilization, so no matter which route I take, my selfie game will still be strong! But there is a difference in terms of the front facing cameras. For the X model, it’s a TrueDepth camera, & for the 8P, it’s just the FaceTime HD Camera. The front camera for the X also has portrait mode, lighting, and Animoji, whereas the 8P does not.

As far as the ID installments, the 8P model has the touch ID with passcode, but the X model has the Face ID with passcode… I’m not sure how I feel about the face recognition. I’m in the middle about it. It’s cool from a technology standpoint, but also very abrasive in the privacy department.

iPhone 8 Plus

I have been waiting for years with this one right here! Both models are equipped for wireless charging! My friend has Samsung, and his phone was equipped with this back in 2015, & I’ve been in love with it ever since. About damn time, Apple.

The capacity for both models only come in 64GB and 256GB, so either way, I’ll be getting a tremendous upgrade from my typical 16GB storage!

GAAAAH!! It really is hard to decide between the two! Which model sticks out the most to you guys?! Let me know!

Hartford not so Innocent

I’m sure everyone has heard about the poor young woman who was constantly terrorized at her university dorm.

It happened just a couple of days ago and it has already taken the internet by storm!

Imagine going to school to further your life and future career with other young adults who have the same ambitions, & end up being so disrespected, discriminated, and degraded solely based on the color of your skin. That’s what happened to poor Chennel Rowe.

Every day, her racist ass roommate, Brianna Brochu, terrorized her by wiping her used tampons on her belongings, unleashing her bodily fluids on her belongings, etc., and was even stupid enough (thank god) to post it all over her Instagram page.

That’s one thing I love about these stupid criminals, they always out themselves… isn’t God great?! Karma always wins.

It’s sad that poor Chennel couldn’t defend herself, but that’s also the beauty. She didn’t have to jeopardize her future for some dumb, immature, racist little girl. Karma handled that situation for her.

I sincerely hope that miss Chennel knows that there are thousands of people who are on her side! I am one that stands with you! Don’t let this dummy derail you from your goals! You do you girl!

I hope little miss racist gets her full sentence. She deserves everything that comes her way.
