Who Needs #SororitySisters When You Have #LoveThySister

Love Thy Sister. "They put the fun in dysfunctional," is the motto for WE! TV's newest reality show.

Who needs a show called Sorority Sisters when there's another group of women willing to get on camera and show their sisterhood? These women aren't sorority sisters. Ruby Rucker, Ione Rucker, and Ellen Rucker Carter are blood sisters and some of us will be tuning in and watching. Watch the super trailer below.

Big Gipp~ Damn That Booty Big

"See the ground don't shake, but the booty do." If you needed for anymore ratchet music to get stuck in your head, then his song is perfect.

The artist name is 41 year old Big Gipp and we can all see his new music video for a song called "Damn That Booty Big" courtesy of Revolt. I thought this was a joke, but nope. He's a seasoned rapper, best known for being in Goodie Mobb. Check out the video below.

The List of People, Places, and Things We're Boycotting

With the premiere of Sorority Sisters, a whole lot of people on twitter decided to boycott the companies of commercials advertising during that time slot. Some of these companies included Target and Hallmark. While the companies probably didn't even know what Primetime show their commercial was being advertised during, people decided it was better to attack them than to just not watch the show. However, this is not the beginning of boycotting any and everything.

It all started with the Darren Wilson campaign. Research shows Walmart contributed to making Darren Wilson a millionaire. Who really knows how much money Walmart just gives away to all campaigns, but this one troubled Black citizens most so some of them did what they thought was best. They decided to boycott Walmart. My only problem is many of the lanes are never open anyway while there are way too many customers. Its best to go somewhere else, but that doesn't seem to matter. It's the season of protesting and boycotting so here's a list of people, places, and things from the internet that we are being told to boycott.

Ratchet Television Shows
I'm assuming that if we're boycotting Sorority Sisters, we have to avoid all other ones too. This means no Love & Hip Hop, no Hollywood Divas, no Real Houseswives, and definitely no R&B Divas. Did I miss any shows?

Lifetime is also about to premiere a new reality television show called Big Women, Big Love. Let's boycott that mess too. Actually just don't watch it. I might watch the first episode just to write about it.

Al Sharpton
One day I woke up and people were mad at Al Sharpton. He's an old school leader. Why do this to him? Oh well, he's on the list.

Bill Cosby
I wish we could have been angry at Bill when he was still drugging and sexing all those women. However, he's a 77 year old man now. With all the womanizers I've had to deal with since becoming an adult, Bill doesn't even matter. However, some folks care and Bill's name gets brought up in negative ways every single day.

Charles Barkley, Pharrell, Don Lemon and Other New Blacks
One day I hope to be apart of the new Blacks. They are all wealthy. Until then we are boycotting them. They believe racism is over, speak about racism being over while a new innocent Black person is being gunned down by a white person, and then shrug it off with their riches.

The Radio
Some of the leading songs on the radio right now involves calling all women THOTs, sexualizing all women, selling drugs, being in love with drugs, and more drugs. I haven't heard anyone say anything about boycotting the radio but maybe we should if we're going to boycott everything else.

Am I missing anything? What else do you feel we should be boycotting?

#TheSisterhood Revelations

The journey of a group of women looking into becoming nuns came to an end on Lifetime. 

As I watched the finale of The Sisterhood, I was both amazed and saddened. Every reality show featuring women claims to want to capture the journey of the woman, but The Sisterhood really brought what each woman was there for to life. 

We saw Eseni struggle with whether to stay with her boyfriend or finish the journey of discernment. Her biggest battle was with her distrust of men. She had to leave a long-term boyfriend in order to get back to the love of God. Eseni chose to not become a nun. 

We saw Christie arrive very bright eyed and opened minded, but then we saw her eventually leave with her mind made up as to what she wanted to do. Christie had never experienced love and her mother wanted her to get married and birth some children. None of that mattered when it came to her decision to join the convent. It was God's calling for her. She's also a singer. Check out her video below. 

Claire was already living the lifestyle of a nun. Her decision in the end wasn't hard at all. However, her dad was not happy when he found out her decision. It's hard seeing a child give up what you've already planned for them. 

Stacey decided to do discernment to see if becoming a nun was the right idea for her. Throughout the series she struggled with finding those signs that would let her know it was the right path. In the end of the journey she was still not sure about becoming a nun, but decided to continue her discernment process. In the beginning I really felt like Stacey was sexualizing Jesus in order to make her decision easier. It was kind of creepy, but it was what she needed to do. 

At only 21 years old Francesca decided to keep exploring all that life has to offer. For a second I thought she was going to choose to become a nun, but she really is too young to make that decision. 

This was overall an amazing show. I look forward to more positive shows like this.

#SororitySisters "Sisters For Life" Might Not Last Long

"You think you know what a sorority girl is. Think again." Sorority Sisters, the reality show people were trying to get banned, has finally made it to Monday nights for our viewing pleasure. However, the reality part is not the best reason to watch this snow. It's the controversy.

When word first got out that there was a show featuring some of the Divine Nine, people were pissed. A preview was initially put online months ago, but was pulled after too many complaints. So many people complained online that it seemed like the show would be forever shelved. However, controversy sells more than friendly shows so it is now airing right after Love and Hip Hop New York.

I thought the Love and Hip Hop Hollywood cast was a special cast, but these Sorority Sisters are topping them. The cast is diverse. These women combined represent four different sororities and they are proud of their organizations.

"Yes, I'm white and I'm a Delta."

I think the highlight of Sorority Sisters is going to be the white Delta. She's not your hood white girl. She's Snow White with a very country accent. There is also a very heavy underlining storyline with her too because the other women don't seem to know who she is at all and she's a lot different than them.

Honestly the show gave me a headache and reminded me of that awful Lifetime reality series BAPs. BAPs was taken off air after a few shows because no one was watching it. I also feel no desire to watch Sorority Sisters because what is it about? There's no story line. There's just a bunch of women who have pledged their organizations for life and they are on television having pointless arguments. I wish they would have waited until the 3rd or 4th episode to throw in all the fighting. I would have been itching for that by then, because we don't get along all the time.

This show doesn't seem to be made of the best cocaine like Love & Hip Hop is. It's also seems to be the second urban directed show that Producer Robert Horowitz has done. His other one is TV One's Deceived. He was also going to be over Eve and Ocho, Evelyn Lozada's show, but that never happened.
