I Hope Fabulous Goes to Jail, But I Doubt It Because No One Cares About Black Women

Fabolous Violently Abuses Emily B on Video and I Hope He Goes to Jail, But I Doubt It Because No One Cares About Black and Brown Women

Last week, the internet was abuzz with the news that washed up, no-hit wonder Fabolous was arrested for (allegedly) savagely beating his long-suffering girlfriend Emily B, who you might remember from the original cast of Love & Hip Hop, back when the show was entertaining. Predictably, people refused to believe that Fabolous would (allegedly) dislocate Emily B’s two front teeth, and then TMZ dropped the visuals.

You would have to be blind not to see what was clearly a very violent altercation. The video shows what appears to be Emily B running from an out-of-control, raging, sharp-object-wielding Fabolous. The other gentleman yelling in the video, the one Fabolous threatened to murder, has been identified as Emily B’s father, who reports say, was called to the home (after the initial physically abusive altercation) to remove the guns because obviously Emily feared for her life, and based upon what we all saw, that was definitely the right move.  

After a Black male celebrity is caught in an abusive altercation, this thing happens where the online conversation centers the victim of the abuse. Let me give you an example. We have all heard and seen the blatant infidelity committed by Offset with random women around the country. One groupie after the next has released screenshots and video of her interaction with Offset, Cardi B’s fiancé.

We spend a lot of time critiquing the choices that women make and not nearly enough time canceling the men who are abusing the women. Click To Tweet

By all accounts, Cardi B is innocent of any reciprocal violation, yet a majority of the online commentary is a critique of Cardi B. *Stares in confusion* Why don’t we keep that same energy for Offset? He’s out here in wigs and roller skates living his best trap life while his newest alleged baby-mama is releasing pictures and messages about their relationship daily. We spend a lot of time critiquing the choices that women make and not nearly enough time canceling the men who are abusing the women (And make no mistake, what Offset is doing, the cavalier way he treats his relationship and his infidelities, is emotionally abusive). We should make it so uncomfortable for Offset that he wouldn’t dare get caught sliding in another women’s panties or DMs. But of course, that is too much like right.

What’s really sad is that Fabolous will continue to release mediocre music, and rappers will continue to call him to feature on their mediocre songs. His “hits” will continue to spin at the parties where the aunties go. In other words, he will continue to prosper just like all the abusive celebrity men that came before – Robert Kelly, Chris Brown, Russell Simmons, Bill Cosby, Ben Vereen, Tavis Smiley, O.J. Simpson, Adrian Peterson, Ray Rice, and so on and so on and so on.

And the reason these men continue to prosper is because collectively, we don’t care about Black and Brown women and we especially don’t care about the violence they experience, which largely goes unpunished, because for Black and Brown women, race and gender intersect in a way that renders their experience with oppression (especially violence) invisible. UN Women organization asserts, “It is estimated that of all women who were the victims of homicide globally…almost half were killed by intimate partners or family members, compared to less than six percent of men killed in the same year”

Let me be the first to say that John David Jackson – Fabolous — is canceled. Any rapper or R&B artist who features John David is canceled. Any tour Fabolous bops on to is canceled. Any award show that includes Fabolous as a nominee (HA!) is canceled. Anybody that sells him a sandwich is canceled.

Can we please collectively be done with him and all the men like him?

Cardi B, Keke Palmer, and J Lo to star in Stripper Revenge Film Titled Hustlers

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.
