Red Carpets & Fashion... two of my favorite things!

It’s time to talk FASHION Divas and Divos!

 Did you all see the Grammy’s last night? Well of course the performances were amazing, but ya’ll know Marlo is all about the clothes and who was wearing what!

 As usual there were some real hits or let’s call them hawts, because some of the ladies were looking “oh so hawt last night! Here’s a few who really caught my eye…

 She’s been pretty low key lately, but the queen of “that’s hawt,” Ms. Paris Hilton herself gets my vote for best hair and make-up for the evening! However, I didn’t love the dress!

Taylor Swift looked like classic young Hollywood  in her silver Gucci gown. The whole ensemble was understated which let her pretty face take the spotlight. (I’m no Taylor Swift hater! She’s a pretty, talented young lady…)

And yes, we did watch Ms. Katy Perry “Roar” in Valentino.  The dress was a perfect choice for her and the occasion, but would not have worked for me, (or anybody else who isn’t in the music business!). Loved the hair!  

 Let me not forget to mention the Queen Bey whose performance with Mr. Carter, was hotter than hawt!!!! (I am doing squats right now – operation Bey booty in effect!) She was totally Drunk In Love with her man on that song and the hair looked like they had just finished a drunk love session in the shower. However, her Michael Costello gown was definitely sultry and sexy. I wonder how it would look in black???

My honorable mentions in the “hawt” category were: Red carpet host, Guiliana Rancic who was lovely in her coral Alex Perry gown and R&B Crooner, Miguel and his girlfriend were just too cute…

 Now in the Not so hawt” category, well that’s everyone I didn’t mention here! Lol! Especially Sara Bareilles, that was a disaster? Honestly, the entire fashion scene this year was pretty toned down, but there were definitely some people who still need to hire a stylist or fire one!

Btw…

 I can’t leave you without raising an eyebrow about this week’s episode of RHOA! Phaedra threw her new baby an inauguration ball. He’s a baby so who was this super expensive, over the top soiree really for? Even Apollo wasn’t into it… But I think he has a lot on his mind right now… (side eye with a raised eyebrow!)

 And what was the “host” of the couples pajama party thinking? I’m not sure, but to me, someone was up to no good. The party didn’t start out warm or fuzzy. The people on the guest list obviously had issues with each other and when you mix attitudes with alcohol, nothing good ever comes from that. I’m glad that was one invitation I turned down! There will be a lot of finger pointing as to who started what, but I’m glad for a change there will be none pointing my way!

 Smooches Divas & Divos…

The saga continues....

It’s a day of reflection and celebration Divas and Divos…

 Today we pay homage to the life and legacy of one of the world’s greatest leaders and champions of freedom. The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King gave his life for those who understood our plight and for those who didn’t because as he stated, he “had a dream” and it included all of us.

 Personally, every time I think of him I am encouraged to keep standing and fighting for what I believe in because God has a plan and purpose for me no matter how hard my struggle may be. We have achieved great strides because of the path he paved for us. For that I will be forever grateful and truly wish there were more of us who shared Dr. King’s vision today.

 To honor him and our Lord, Christ Jesus who he served, I will continue to dream, believe and achieve my goals. It’s the least I can do to prove that his dream is real, and divas and divos, I hope you’ll do the same. Now…

 

The saga continues!

 I hope you checked me out last night on RHOA. Thanks to you, I’m back! You’ll definitely be seeing more of me as the season continues. So, let’s get to it and spill some tea shall we?

 Shout out to Christopher Williams for that beautiful tribute to Cynthia and Peter on their 3rd anniversary. He’s still got it doesn’t he?

 Breakfast at Cynthia’s before our trip to the Wolf Mountain Vineyards was awesome and the ladies were gorgeous in their “going to the vineyard” dresses. Oh, and my Tom Ford boots were “hawt!” Just like Cynthia’s champagne, I felt like a “sweet bitch” when I was wearing them! I also met Kenya for the first time in this episode, and this “tea spilling” diva is definitely a handful! (Mmm hmmm just like me!).

Now of course when the ladies get together you have to expect gossip-fueled fireworks. Christopher Williams’ “wife” Natalie, (and I put it in quotes because her official status is questionable) came to the table and got the drama started. She had a lot to say about Kandi and Todd, and personally as one who knows it’s not easy to gain entry into this exclusive circle I don’t think bringing up his past was the way to go. Did she not get the memo, you don’t mess with Kandi’s man, daughter or mama? Natalie basically said that Todd was an opportunist on the “come up.” Aren’t we all taking advantage of opportunities that help us move up? Kandi has made it clear that I’m not one of her favorite people, (which is fine with me) but I would never want to maliciously add strife to her relationship. I did applaud her when she shut Ms. Natalie down with a toast, (and then a bite to eat!) Lol… her and Phaedra do love to get their munch on. Truthfully, I did call them phat, but meant no disrespect. Both Phaedra and Kandi are from the South where the men prefer a girl with some meat on her bones who’s not afraid to chow down. As you can see, these sexy curvy divas are comfortable in their skin! Werk them donkey booties ladies! Lol!

 Well, there is more tea to spill this season and you just have to keep watching to see how things turn out, but trust me, the RHOA drama will not disappoint and neither will I!

 Btw divas & divos… Be sure to listen to my interview this Tuesday at 9:30 pm on The Deshai Cole Show on 94.7FM Charlotte & bit.ly/1at04vl

 Til next week… Smooches!

Happy New Year Divas and Divos!

The holidays were a time for me, (and hopefully you too) to relax and reconnect with family and friends. I had an awesome Christmas with my beautiful nieces, nephews and goddaughters, not to mention letting my weave down with my sisters and sister-friends. But it’s time to get back to work, cause you know somebody has to make some coins!

Great news, I’m going to be back on the RHOA this Sunday!!!!! Be sure to tune in and make those ratings jump! Lol! Trust me, when all the ladies get together and we have alcohol, there is never a dull moment, so you won’t be disappointed. Plus, I need to send a special shout-out to RHOA show producer-extraordinaire… Carlos King! Thanks Carlos for everything. You are truly gifted at what you do and I’m grateful for the opportunity to work with you.

 Anyhoo, there are some great things coming up, so please do check in with me and the show for announcements. I really missed my Divas and Divos… I won’t stay gone this long again – make sure ya’ll holla back to let me know you still got my back. Okay?

 And don’t forget to tune in Sunday @ 8pm on Bravo. Muah!
