"Inner Circle: The Wives Association" review with #TammyTalks

Evelyn Lozada has just conquered another world in mainstream entertainment but putting on the hat of an author. Lozada released her first book Inner Circle: The Wives Association this past June and it has been on fire ever since. It has reportedly been selling at Barnes and Noble bookstores around the country. For those of you who aren't familiar with the book here is the synopsis according to

Against her mother’s wishes and her own reservations, Eve Inez marries Los Angeles Leopard’s superstar wide receiver, Chase Landon, and finds herself in a close-knit circle of friends who are also married to elite athletes.
Each of the wives soon discover their lives aren’t all glitz and glam, and that with wealth and fame there’s always a price to pay. It’s a regular battle of the sexes and Eve quickly realizes her circle needs protection against the everyday drama that keeps coming their way – prenups, baby mamas, scandals, cheating and worst of all, gossip.
In answer, Eve encourages the wives to band together to form The Wives Association. No athlete, no matter how rich, pampered or devious, is going to get one over on her girls – that is, until she herself is confronted with one terrible truth that strikes much closer to home than she could ever have imagined.

I will admit I did have some reservations when I first heard that Evelyn was releasing a book. I mean lets be real, she is a reality star, a socialite, a trendsetter, but an author? No. However, when I hear the book was partly made up of entries from her personal diary my interest was peaked. After learning more about the book I knew that I had to read it. I thought the book was going to be a "tell all" but when I found out if was an actual story it sparked my interest even more. 

I was definitely entertained throughout the entire book. The characters seemed so realistic, especially "Eve", as I was reading I could vividly picture Evelyn saying and doing everything that was described in the book. The book took me through a wave of emotions (which is what you want in a book). I literally laughed out loud, I got pissed and cussed at the characters, I was shocked, I was hurt, I was happy. Lol. There were certain chapters I reread over and over because it was just so much action I thought maybe I missed something. It was just crazy how Evelyn and her co author were able to evoke so much emotion with the series of events that took place in the book. 

Some of the characters do mimic her cast mates on BBW but not enough for you to really tell who is who which is perfect. What I liked best about the book was that you weren't able to tell what was true and what was fictional. It keeps you wondering, "damn, did that really happen or...?" The ending def left me anticipating the second book to come in the series. 

Good job Evelyn!!!

Make sure you all go out and pick up this book!!

The end of the Breakfast Club is near

The Breakfast Club has been on air for 9 years this month, and is going strong with ratings, engagement, and seems to be adding new markets every month...but I think the end is near.
I sound crazy right? I know you're thinking, Tammy how and why would you think that a successful morning show would have it's future in the balance? Well, there are a couple of reasons, let's go through them. I mean this could all be in my head and I’m projecting, or I could have some legitimate points and the near future will tell.
Shock jock radio value going down- The Breakfast Club has been known for it's shock jock style of radio for years. Charlemagne says the most outlandish things in interviews, creates false narratives that he doesn't even agree with for hot takes, and Envy always goes against the grain and disagrees with the masses on any given topic, just to disagree. Podcasting is huge right now, put five people in a room and at least three of them have a podcast; just at the…

15 Black women that need to host SNL

Saturday Night Live has been around for 45 years this fall and has had a series of hosts, of all ethnicities, ages, and entertainment occupations. They've had hosts that are comedians, actors, singers, rappers, and more. Now, while the diversity has been decent...I would love to see more black women as hosts. I've compiled a list of black women I think would do a damn good job at hosting the late night show. Let's get started shall we...
Tracee Ellis Ross - Tracee is a no brainer and should be at the top of everyone's list when thinking of who should host when they are doing the planning over at NBC. Tracee has perfect comedic timing, which we've seen time and time again on Girlfriends, and now on Black-ish we’ve seen her transform into Rainbow Johnson, and also into the other smaller roles they play when they have episodes within their episodes, if that makes sense. Her personality is playful and fun, which is evident through her Instagram. So, she’s topping this l…

Grown-ish is a far cry from A Different World

When it was announced that Black-ish, the hit ABC sitcom about an affluent African American family doing their best to immerse their kids in the their ethnic culture while still enjoying the fruits of their labor, would be getting a spinoff following the oldest daughter, Zoe Johnson, as she headed to college people were somewhat excited. When it was pegged to be an updated and more current version of the hit series A Different World people were more than excited and the show was highly anticipated. We were expecting to see Zoe navigate life as a college freshmen, out of the sheltered and, low key white bread, lifestyle. We were anticipating seeing her explore more of her life after highschool, then it aired…

Now, don’t get me wrong, I like Grown-ish, I think it’s entertaining, but it’s a far cry from A Different World. I didn’t expect the show that be identical to A Different World, mainly since Zoe wasn’t attending an HBCU, so there’s that, but I think the show is missing the mark on …
