Angela Yee and Cyn Santana Dragged for Perpetuating Misogynoir

Angela Yee and Cyn Santana have found themselves in hot water. Now that an old podcast snippet has resurfaced, only one is scrambling to explain herself.

During Angela Yee’s podcast “Lip Service”, Cyn Santana voiced her opinion on interracial dating. Stating, “Y’all can keep the Puerto Rican men. I’m good.”, Santana said she prefers Black men. Alleging Black men cater to Spanish women and mocking the incoming backlash, Yee and Santana caught a beam of Black Girl Magic for perpetuating misogynoir.

Silent Yee finds her voice for colorism

We’ve fought this colorist dragon before.

Angela Yee is a member of The Breakfast Club, a morning radio show whose topics span Black, and occasionally, Afro-Latinx culture. She shares the mic with Charlamagne the God, who we have checked in the past for being blatantly colorist despite his marriage with a dark-skinned woman. As someone multi-racial, you would expect Angela to speak up for Black women, instead she laughs along.

“She gon’ get herself in trouble…the Black girls gon be like…” –Angela Yee

Sis, are you not Black too?

It’s not as if the sentiments expressed are new. Black women are frequently stereotyped as loud, aggressive, difficult to love. While Cyn’s comments may not be explicitly inflammatory, she said enough to wound Black women, women who are constantly defending themselves.

“Black guys cater to us Spanish girls, especially. Like they…you know what, let me not get into it. Black girls gonna take it personal. They gonna be like ‘Uhh Uhhhh!’ Anyway, I’m done with the papis.”

“I didn’t mean it”

After being called out for furthering ethnic stereotypes, Cyn has attempted to redeem herself through dialogue on Twitter. While admitting her remarks came from a place of ignorance, Cyn apologized but insisted things were taken out of context.

Okay, Jan…Sure.

A part of Cyn’s battle included apologizing for her use of the N-word. Claiming she “did not know that the N word was actually a BAD word that offended”, she says its no longer a part of her vocabulary.

Although Santana claims to have changed her ways, she may have found herself in a different type of relationship. Having been in a committed relationship with Joe Budden and recently bearing a child, they have been having some issues. In fact, a major point of her Love and Hip Hop plot was centered on their tense union.

Karma is a Black Queen, I STAN!!!

Do you think people are overly sensitive or were Cyn and Angela in the wrong?

Cardi Hustlers

Cardi B is making money moves to the big screen! The Grammy winning rapper has signed on to star in the stripper revenge film ‘Hustlers’, alongside J. Lo, Keke Palmer, and Constance Wu.

When we saw J. Lo twirling on the pole a few weeks ago, we thought she was just trying something new for A-Rod. Turns out, she was training for a new film. Titled ‘Hustlers’ and set for release later this year, the film is set during the 2008 financial crisis. The film centers around a team of strippers who want revenge on their Wall Street Johns and hope to scam their former clients out of hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Written and directed by Lorene Scafaria, this will be Cardi’s first feature film. She will be sharing the screen with the likes of Julia Stiles and Lili Reinhart. Quite the step up from her Love & Hip Hop days! But this isn’t Cardi’s first time acting. She did have a guest role on BET’s Being Mary Jane in 2017.

Wendy Williams Reveals She’s Been Living in “Sober Home”

wendy williams reveals addiction

For years people scolded Wendy for never spilling her own tea. Well, here it is. Wendy Williams has been living in a “sober home” to quietly get treatment for a long unresolved addition to cocaine.

Revealing a secret known only to her husband, Kevin Hunter, Wendy says although she has always been candid about her cocaine use, she never sought treatment. The daytime television gossip queen shared with her audience that after each episode is filmed she goes to her Pilates class and then heads to several meetings across the city before ultimately returning to her group home. Driven by a “24-hour sober coach”, Wendy has been rooming at a facility where it’s “doors locked by 10 pm, lights out by 10pm.” Detailing her evenings, she says, “I go to my room and stare at the ceiling and fall asleep to come here and see you.”

“It’s my truth.”

Over the course of her career, Wendy Williams has discussed her drug use multiple times. However, when it comes to how she stopped, Wendy says, “I never went to a place to get the treatment — I didn’t know how, except God was just sitting on my shoulder and I just stopped.” While she was seeking professional help for her addiction, Wendy said she did not confide in her other family members. As for whether her stay in the group home contributed to her absence from January to March 4th, we can’t be sure. A fractured shoulder and ongoing battle with Graves’ disease are credited as responsible for her extended break.

Wendy’s admission has been applauded by many who want to remove the stigma surrounding drug addiction discussions. Many have taken to Twitter to share their love and support for her. Recently, Wendy’s foundation partnered with an organization geared toward branching treatment and long-term recovery. She hopes that by being open about her struggle, other will be inspired to get the help they need.
