The Real SideChicks of Charlotte is…Real?

To quote the King of Reads himself, I am shooketh!

The buzz has been going around for a couple of weeks now but seemed to be confirmed this week. “The Real SideChicks of Charlotte” is an actual show. The concept began with a music video by local “rapper” Mr. 704, as he stated in an interview withPower 98 in Charlotte. Cast members Shadore Blackwell, Lynette, Storm, and Brittney Brixxx were also there to give their perspective on the issue. Peep the video below to catch all these teas.

Honey this is serving me “The Hunger Games” teas and Charlotte is looking like District 9.

Of course, the show has received a lot of backlash. Naturally, there has been heavy criticism about another negative depiction of African American. Although these won’t be the first women in media who were side chicks. Before Kim Zolciak became married Kroy Biermann, she was known as Big Poppa’s mistress. Nene called this out at the reunion gifting us the infamous “Close your legs to married men” comment. There was a show on ABC called “Mistresses”, and there was only one Black woman in the cast. Marilyn Monroe was “allegedly” the mistress to both JFK and his brother Bobby Kennedy. Depending on what you believe, you can toss Angelina Jolie into the side chick basket too. I’m in no way supporting this show, but I refuse to let people pretend that only black women have entertained this lifestyle.

People chastise the cast for their lack of shame and respect for themselves. It does make me sad to see women who clearly have self-esteem issues glorify this behavior. They cite past relationships, desire for bags and rent payments, and a level of consciousness that the “main” chick lacks to explain their actions. I’m not disgusted by these women. I feel sorry for them. They stated that they are all mothers, which is even more troubling. How will their children feel when they learn of this? It’s one thing for you to sign up for this, but what about the children? Also, they are leaving themselves open to the threat of lawsuits. North Carolina has a (very old) law that allows a spouse to sue the “other woman (or man) responsible for the breakdown of a marriage. It cites “loss of affection” and is still in use today. Adultery is illegal in NC, so they should be very careful moving forward.

However, there is a little bit of hypocrisy in the judgment of them. The women are being called whores and disgraceful for sleeping with married men. But how many people you know (or possibly you) have messed around with someone’s boyfriend(girlfriend)? Is that okay because there isn’t a ring involved? There seem to be degrees of morality, and we pick and choose what’s wrong when it suits us.

The biggest thing I noticed in all of the comments I’ve seen was the blame being placed only on the women. What about the men? There can’t be a side chick with the main man. When is society going to start equally blaming men and women in these situations? Men seem to skate by, while women are painted with a scarlet letter. The men took vows and promised forever to their spouse. Should they not share the blame?

I’m pretty sure the show won’t make it to an actual network, but I also didn’t think Trump would be president. Bravo is probably going to shut this down since they are stealing from their concept and marketing. That’s if Chic-Fil-a doesn’t get those guys first (I know you saw those shirts).

 

What do you think? Will you be tuning in if “The Real SideChicks of Charlotte” gets picked up?

    I agree. I can’t believe I am admitting this but I’m 21 years old and I have messed around a guy who has had a girlfriend. I didn’t know at first but once I found out I made the decision to keep engaging with him. The reality of the situation is I don’t judge these women for being side chicks or mistresses but I’m just alarmed and shocked that they would actually come on television and flaunt this lifestyle and then after watching the clip above all I could say is WOW , everyone makes mistakes and I would
    Hope they don’t trickle down to their kids. Create an environment life style and so forth that will make it to where if they do have daughters they won’t feel the need to sleep with men for money and rent vouchers.

      Thank you for your comment, I loved it! We all have skeleton in our closets, so I understand. It shocked me too to see them airing their dirty laundry for all the world to see, and their reasons why. Keep the comments coming and stay wonderful!

    Why are you quoting him? He didn’t come up with this statement.

    You can always kinda tell when the production team doesn’t respect their cast. Didn’t even make an effort to touch them up in that photo, lmao. They all look busted.

Amanda Seales is Not the One

mm

Published

on

Earlier this week, the ladies of “The Real” celebrated their 1,000th episode. Hosts Loni Love, Tamera Mowry, Adrienne Bailon, Jeannie Mai, and Amanda Seales happily celebrated the momentous occasion with laughs, tears and a bottle of champagne. 

The celebration continued as the ladies were interviewed by “Extra” correspondent Jenn Lahmers.

During the interview, things became a bit awkward when Lahmers referred to Seales as the “newbie” and began to insinuate that she and fellow co-host, Mai, had “butted heads on a couple of topics.”

Immediately, Seales cut her off saying, “Have we? Stop!” She followed that up by stating emphatically, “That’s’ not the territory we’re coming from. We’re not butting heads. And I think it’s very, very important, especially at a table of diverse women to very clearly delineate the difference between having a difference of opinion than butting heads. You’ll know when I’m butting heads because when I butt heads, there’s only going to be one head standing and as you can see, we’re still here,” as she embraced Mai.

Mai and Seales followed up the quick read with a toast as the other ladies chimed in, fully supporting everything Seales had expressed. 

Earlier today, Seales posted a snippet of the exchange via her personal Instagram page with the caption, “To Gather.

She tried it. Don’t come for me unless I send for you. I am not hostile. I’m passionate. Happy Black History Month ❤️✊🏽”

Seales made her debut as the newest co-host of “The Real” on January 6th.

Rolling Stone magazine hit us with a trifecta of talent for their second annual, Women Shaping the Future issue, out March 3. 

On the cover, sweet-faced Normani, brash in your face Megan Thee Stallion and innocent, doe-eyed SZA are each clad in leather ensembles that match the unique persona’s we’ve come to love. 

SZA burst onto the scene in 2014 with her ep debut, Z. Since then, the singer/songwriter has been featured on chart-topping songs with Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott, and Rihanna. 

Megan Thee Stallion grabbed our attention with her summer anthem, Hot Girl Summer, and has been giving us “Hot Girl” vibes all year long with no signs of slowing down.

As for Normani, formerly a member of Fifth Harmony, she’s given us plenty to celebrate as she embarked on her solo career. Just last year, the sultry vocalist collaborated with DJ Calvin Harris and released her first single, Motivation, along with a viral music video.

As we approach Women’s History Month, we’re excited to learn more about how each of these ladies plans to shape the future. 

According to Rolling Stone, “In addition to revealing, in-depth profiles of these three artists, the issue also contains exclusive interviews with Regina King, Stacey Abrams, Natasha Lyonne, and other prominent women in entertainment, sports, politics, and culture.”
