Tyler Perry’s “The Haves & The Have Nots” begin on an unlikely note–Celine actually being a good employee. She alerts Kathryn to Jim’s televised press conference. There, she sees him telling the public about Wyatt’s history and drug problem. Kathryn is taken aback, Jim goes onto say Wyatt did not hit Benny or Lizzie, but instead hit another man named Donald with a Black Sedan AND they settled outside of court. He acquits Kathryn of any involvement and tells the media he would be the first person to turn his son in had he killed anyone. He makes Jennifer’s case into a witch hunt and demand Wyatt be released. At Hanna’s home someone calls and tells her to turn on the television. She sees Jim’s televised confession. Veronica also looks on with glee at the conference from her kitchen. Maggie and Landon look on with amazement as he plays the press for fools, he places further doubt on Wyatt when he reveals the witness against him was under the influence. Celine admonishes Kathryn for Wyatt’s behavior and is angrily dismissed in return. Veronica refers to him as a “clever bastard” before turning the television off. Hanna refuses to believe his story, all the while not realizing Quincy has broken into her home and is standing behind her! He demands to know where Candice is. She gets a bat and demands he leaves her home. Hanna tells him she does not know where she is. He tells Hanna to tell her he is after her. She demands to know where her grandson is, but he does not know. He jacks her up and then abruptly leaves.

4/7/2014- “In Love With A Fanboy”

image

Hey Mikey,

My boyfriend refuses to grow up! Since the day I met him he’s been obsessed with Sci- Fi and superheroes for as long as I’ve known him. Last Thursday night he tried to get me to leave my friends party so he could go to the midnight showing for the new Captain America movie. I initially agreed to go with him to it, but I was having a really good time with my friend. By the time we got there there were no seats left and he was really pissed off of me. Everyone says he’s being unreasonable because we could see it another time, but he isn’t speaking to me and hasn’t spoken to me since that night. I want to make things right but first, I need to know was I too wrong for anything?

-Being Mature

***Being Mature, there is no such thing  as “too wrong,” you either are or aren’t.  And yes you are wrong! It’s highly inconsiderate and selfish of you to make your boyfriend miss his event all because you are having too much fun at your own. Especially when you agreed to see the movie with him.  You’ve got some apologizing and making up to do. A ticket to Comic-Con would be nice–I’m just throwing that out there! Seriously,  go see your man and make amends. Next time there’s a midnight showing or premiere he wants to go to, and you don’t might; then might I suggest you drive separate cars?

3/14/2014- “Naming Your Baby (Ty’Keisha)”

image

Hey Mikey,

I’m having my first baby. It should be a joyous time for me, but it isn’t since no likes what I want to name my daughter. I want her to be unique,  and have a unique name so I came up with Ty’Keisha. Everyone says it’s hood and she’ll never get a good job. But I disagree. My name is Canaan, and I’ve done quite well for myself. What do you think? I’d like to hear your opinion.

-Canaan

***Canaan, congratulations!  I’m sorry your experience of being a new mother is marred by such controversy. However, I see your intent with naming her that,  just as I see what your loved ones are concerned about. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts be careful about what you name your child. Cultures around the world believe you take on several characteristics of the name you are given. Names should be thoughtful and still have a meaning. Can you explain the meaning of Ty’Keisha,  other than it is a unique name?  Originality doesn’t always equate goodness. I hope you realize your daughter will be unique simply by being herself.  Remember no two people are the same. Unfortunately we live in a very judgmental world where any ethnic or unique name will be scrutinized by employers, teachers, classmates, etc. Yet another reason you should be cautious of what you name your daughter. If Ty’Keisha is still what you decide on I would suggest you give her a  simple middle name. Something more common.  Your daughter should be judged by her actions, not her name. Congratulations again.

Tony takes his victorious walk of shame out of the courthouse to take Benny off life support. Hanna begs and pleads on her knees with Candice begging her not to, to spare Benny’s life. Hanna tries to flag down a taxi to reach the hospital before Benny is unplugged. Candice offers to drive her but she refuses. After she reminds her mother of the situation at hand and if she would like to say goodbye to Benny before it is too late. She reluctantly leaves with her daughter to the hospital. On the way, she calls Jim trying one last time to enlist his help. Hanna advises her against it. At the march, Jim and David are nervous as ever. Maggie has them stand at the helm of the protest for appearances. She introduces them to the organizer and Lizzie’s grandfather, Michael. The latter offers them t-shirts to wear, but they later refuse due to their culpability and guilt.

2/27/2014- “Ouija Board”

image

Hey Mikey,

I am by no means a religious woman, but even I know there are some thing people, let alone children should not tamper with. My daughter just got a ouija board for her birthday from one of the neighbor’s kids. I wanted to make a return the gift at her party, but her father advised me against doing it right then and tbere. I really don’t want that in my house how do I tell my neighbor I would like to return their gift?

-S. Peters

***S. Peters, I see where you’re coming from.  I believe it is only a game, but it’s rumored use does make me wonder. I think you should talk to your neighbor and CALMLY explain how you feel and that you don’t want your daughter playing with it. If they refuse to take it back toss it, donate it, or sell it away. Remember there is a tactful way to do and say anything.

2/15/2014- “My Boss, My Boyfriend”

image

Hey Mikey!

I’m really angry with my boyfriend right now. He’s the general manager at my job and he didn’t schedule me to be off yesterday. He says the restaurant needed me there because I’m one of the better servers, but he managed to be off last night. I don’t think it’s fair! If he wanted us to have a good Valentine’s he should have scheduled to be off as well! He says we will do something today, but I ain’t with it. My friends say I’m wrong for being upset. Am I?

-Bar Fly

***Bar Fly, sorry to pop your bubble but I agree with your friends. As the general manager of that store he has a responsibility to do what’s in the best interests of it. Stories like this are why bosses shouldn’t be dating employees–work and home soon come to blows. If you would like to remain employed and in a relationship heed my advice and follow his lead.  Separate the professional from the personal! Lastly, expressions of love aren’t restricted to just Valentine’s Day. So don’t put so much stock in it.  Remember if you pin all your hopes on one day, then you’re bound to be disappointed. Take that boy up on his offer and have a Happy Belated Valentine’s Day!

“My Guiltiest Pleasures”- The Real Housewives of Atlanta

image

After six seasons of melodrama, malicious gossip, colorful decadence, and a never ending calendar of events EVERY ONE knows of Bravo ‘s leading Southern belles, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta!” Originally an attempt to expand the Real Housewives franchise to another city and attract African – Americans this experiment became the most popular show on the network averaging millions of viewers every season. Yes Kandi Buruss, Nene Leakes, Cynthia Bailey, Phaedra Parks, Kenya Moore(my personal favorite), and Porsha Williams – Stewart  never fail to give us everything we ask for in reality television. The latest season, however, has the husbands dishing out there fair share of drama as well. Peter is up to his usual shenanigans as he attempts to regulate like a Jamaican pimp. Whereas Apollo Naida really shows his dark side by pummeling Kenya’s assistant, and is now being charged with bank fraud.
Part Two of last night’s brawl  introduced us to a new side of Kandi. This musical hit maker unleashed the beast, ready to take Cynthia’s sister, Mallory out. Fingers are currently being pointed everywhere as to who is to blame for this whole debacle. However, as the host of the event and by creating a hostile and negative environment with her invasive questions Nene Leakes bares the brunt of the blame. The show is called “Real Housewives” for a reason and sometimes it gets just that real. For this reason, these six lovely ladies are my latest guiltiest pleasures.

Why I Love Them:
-Nene and her reads are hilarious.  Say what you want but it makes for good TV.
-The ongoing feud between Phaedra and Kenya is nothing short of delicious!
-Kenya’s prison jokes about Apollo and his sexuality.
-Mama Joyce jumping mad with Kandi’s friend
-This brawl involving almost every single cast member!
-Phaedra’s over the top, extravagant parties for her children
-Kenya’s “Stallion booty” video!

Catch the “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” on Bravo, Sundays at 8 PM EST!
