New Role Models? : The Real Sidechicks of Charlotte and Bernice Burgos Make it to The Breakfast Club

mm

Published

on

A lot of people are giving The Breakfast Club an L this week.

The guest list for The Breakfast Club this week has been polarizing, to say the least.  The internet was buzzing after The Breakfast Club welcomed “urban model” and “entrepreneur” Bernice Burgos.  The video on YouTube currently holds the record for the most dislikes of any interview on TBC.  Bernice stopped by to clear up rumors, discuss her brand and business. The interview has accumulated over 887,000 views and has become the #29 trending video on YouTube.  If you haven’t seen it, you can catch the video below.

The comments section was vicious and social media was flooded with tweets, posts, and strong opinions.  Some felt that she shouldn’t have been invited to the show and that her interview was boring and unnecessary.  Criticisms about her intelligence, choice to have plastic surgery, parenting and overall lifestyle were all included.  Others felt that those who disliked her video were hating, and praised her “come up” from teen mom to businesswoman.  There was also the issue of her interaction with host Angela Yee, as Bernice accused Angela of referring to her as “video vixen”.  TBC rolled back the footage which disproved her comments.

Fast forward to the end of this week and The Breakfast Club decided to go for broke with an interview featuring the cast of “The Real Sidechicks of Charlotte”.  The video is currently the #6 trending video on YouTube!  Comedian Lil Duvall was along for the ride, peep the interview below.

If you’ve watched the two interviews, did you notice the difference in treatment between the guests? Charlemagne was in awe of Bernice and way more respectful than he has been to most guests.  However, the way he treated the Real Sidechicks of Charlotte cast was completely different.  Now it may have been because Lil Duvall was present, as he tends to get really extra when he’s around. But let’s be honest, what’s the difference between the two?  All of the women have become famous due to their association with someone else’s man (although Bernice denies the TI affair).  They all refer to themselves as entrepreneurs.  In Charlemagne’s own words, he should have had that same energy when he met with the cast.  Mocking these women (who were invited guests), calling them hoes and “side niggas” is just as bad as the reason for it.  Not to mention, Duvall’s continued references to transgender Americans as “trannies”.  Jokes about Usher, LGBTQ, side chicks, the whole interview was a mess (although the “side baby” comment was hilarious).  Also, I found it very interesting that DJ Envy was cackling with them, seeing as he was caught very publicly with a side chick.

 

 

The question is, with continuing to give these women with a platform, are we promoting their lifestyles? People have been quick to criticize them, but they couldn’t exist without an audience.  Are these the new role models?

Self-Made or Born Rich?: Kylie Jenner Soon to Create a Billion Dollar Empire

mm

Published

on

Lip gloss mogul Kylie Jenner dons the cover of Forbes’ Magazine”America’s Women Billionaires” issue. The 20-year-old social media star was able to turn an insecurity into a nearly $1 billion dollar empire. With an estimated $100 million dollars in revenue in 2017 alone, Jenner is seeing that being in the beauty industry has a huge payoff. If her company keeps doing big numbers like those she is well on her way to being the youngest-ever-self-made-billionaire. A title previously held by Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg.

Jenner describes feeling lost and struggling to find her niche while her siblings were venturing in the modeling and beauty industry. Her mother, Kris Jenner, advised her to go the modeling route and Kylie was able to rack up seven figures by doing gigs with PacSun, Sinful Colors, and Instagram Ad placements.

During this time Kylie underwent a cosmetic procedure on her lips. After getting tired of over-lining her lips to get the full-black woman esque features Kylie decided to get her own. A light went off in her head and in 2014 the phrase “Kylie Lip Kits … for the perfect pout” was trademarked. By investing $250,000 from her modeling gigs into an outside company to produce the products the Kylie Cosmetics was born. 

By being one of the most followed people across all social media platforms, Kylie has an audience that will be easy to profit off of. She was able to outsource the production of her kits and Kris Jenner handles the business side of things. All Kylie has to do is cater to her audience. With hourly posts that includes selfies with the lipgloss name in the caption, videos of swatches and product launches, and let us not forget celeb endorsements from her sisters and other Instagram socialites.  This model has allotted the young mother to earn 100% of her company.

This is an amazing accomplishment from a 20-year-old but the debate is that she’s not self-made. Even Dictionary.com took time to add to the discussion with a clarification on what self-made actually means.

Kylie’s empire has been created since the inception of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” when she was just 10-years-old. She has been handed opportunities and advantages that most of us couldn’t even dream of. Which is why many aren’t too impressed with this billion dollar feat.

Others created the argument that she is self-made because her brother, Rob, was afforded the same opportunities…and well…flopped.

What do you guys think? Is Kylie self-made or extremely privileged?
