This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending the BET Honors 2012 celebrating: Maya Angelou, Coach Beverly Kearney, Spike Lee, Tuskegee Airmen, Mariah Carey and Stevie Wonder.
The event was absolutely amazing and felt like family.
BET Honors 2012 was empowering, celebratory, inspiring and loving. The room was packed with power and grace, from icon to who’s got next. Where do you go and get a chance to rub Cicely Tyson’s back or hold hands with Aretha Franklin? Continue reading →
The days are adding up and we are well into the month of January, the kickoff month of a brand new year. January is the best time to dust off and prepare to win for 2012. Regardless of what was, it’s just that–WAS (wasting away sulking).Continue reading →
Last night, BET’s The Game was exciting and delivered countless REAL moments in the Season 5 opener.
The show was fast paced and in 45 minutes tackled – race, abortion, single parenting, drugs, groupies, marriage, and brand reinvention. Yes, The Game delivered with the drama, familiar faces, comedy, over the top acting, fashion and a good time. Thank you, BET!! Continue reading →
Welcome – you have landed at TheBrandNewMommy.com, a space all about you reinventing your brand coupled with some fun stuff.
So, here is what I was talking about this morning with mommies and daddies in my circle.
Abercrombie and Fitch received too much press about their “push up” bikini for girls. Well, I am not about to give them any additional love – except to say, with all the hormones in food (milk, chicken and burgers) these kids don’t need extra pads? Have you seen 7 years old at the mall lately? Let’s love and protect our babies, make certain they have an old school childhood (like we had) and wear age appropriate clothing.
I will be in front of the television tonight (Tuesday, January 11), wearing my jersey and watching Melanie, Derwin, Tasha, Malik, Jason and Kelly bring it L-I-V-E to BET. The Game offers witty and intelligent writing for grown folks and that’s refreshing.
Let’s see if BET can keep the production level at EXCELLENT!
My crush goes back to being a teenager … his voice hypnotized me the very first time I heard,“Time Will Reveal.”
Since I saw him perform on the BET Awards 2010, I re-opened my El Debarge fan club file.
I couldn’t believe his voice was (still) so … silky smooth, passionate and refreshing — he made me smile like no care in the world momma.
I indulged in a moment of El Debarge bliss.
It’s great to see some musicians still hungry and love the craft. Feel me?
Yesterday speaking to Stephanie Tavares Rance a childhood pal (Dominican Commercial High School shout out) and BNM, we reminisced about going to see the DebargeFamily perform at Radio City Music Hall with Luther Vandross.
It’s great to know 26 years later I still love me some El Debarge and he has yet to disappoint (on the vocals).
Live your passion everyday and remember … you can always “comeback.”
