Believe it or not, the first week September is here already…and we’re back like clockwork. New week, new episode!
Shells took a gamble at a Lauryn Hill concert last week and is going home to ATL this weekend, while Irene took over Houston last weekend and is begrudgingly saying goodbye to summer.
Around the water cooler, we’re talking about payment plan airfare, Serena Williams as the GOAT, ITT was completely shut down in the middle of the week, Colin Kaepernick’s jerseys are the hottest commodity these days, Shonda Rhimes, Common, and Jesse Williams have a new project exploring the socioeconomic challenges of our country, Malia Obama embraces her petty, and Beyonce celebrated her birthday Soul Train style (but Irene’s invite got lost in the mail).
Then, there’s our would you rather enlightenment for the week *ha*… Would you rather only age in your face or only age from the neck down? Think about it…carefully…we certainly did!
And even though the end of summer is sad, Fall means quality television programming! We discuss two major premiers this week: Queen Sugar and Atlanta! Both shows are predominately black casts and tell unique stories of the complexity, beauty, and differences in the black community. Amazing black television and we loved every bit of it!
And speaking of story telling and quality entertainment, Irene shares a fun and upbeat record from Young Thug, Travis Scott, and Quavo in her Beats this week, and Shells had a little incident at Starbucks that set the framework of her Eye Spy Inspiration!
That’s it for now…but we’ll see you next week! Until then, Listen – Laugh – Share!
