He Bathes In Cheeto Dust

Needless to say, last week was very eventful. From the U.S. presidential inauguration to the Women’s March, there was never a dull moment.

Let’s get it!

Hot Mess #1: Donald Trump’s team for all of their “alternative facts.”


First of all, I would just like to say that I really am not a Trump basher. Although I’m not looking forward to watching him and his long ties over the next four years, I understand that he is our president and will show him the utmost respect when he deserves it. Fortunately for me, he hasn’t deserved it yet… x-O

We all know that Trump is a mess, but it’s the messiness of his team that is truly astounding. Since Trump’s inauguration, his minions (i.e. Sean Spicer and Kellyanne Conway) have been spewing some of their worst lies to the American public and rebranding them as “alternative facts.”


Press Secretary Sean Spicer: ‘Our Intention is Never to Lie to You’

I won’t go much further into detail than the article above. It’s just frustrating that Trump’s team has made a deliberate effort to treat the public like idiots….

Spicer, next time you want to lie about how many (a.k.a. how few) people attended the presidential inauguration, try not to have photo evidence of your false claims dominating social media…


Hot Mess #2: The U.S. for electing a man who triggered a world-wide demonstration


If you weren’t watching Trump’s inauguration on Friday, then you were probably gearing up for the Women’s March on Saturday.

In response to Trump’s dangerous rhetoric about women and other minority groups, millions united around the world to form one of the largest protests in history.


Pictures From Women’s Marches on Every Continent

I’m not a political expert or anything, but it would appear that a country that sparks this much global mobilization is a HOT mess.


BTWs, if you haven’t watched Ashley Judd’s performance of “Nasty Woman”  from the march, then you absolutely HAVE to. I have never been more entertained in my entire life. She gave me all the feels, all the snaps, and all the comedy.

Ashley Judd does “Nasty Woman”

“I’m not as nasty as a man who looks like he bathes in CHEE-to dust!”


Out of all of this, I’m glad that at least Cheetos are getting some much deserved publicity.

And with that, I’m going to end today’s post. There’s only so much orange I can take…

We All Wanna Be Bad And Boujee

I know it’s been a few weeks, but I had to battle my PTSD from 2016 before being ready to start posting again. Now, I’m back and ready to take on 2017 full force in my Star Wars onesie (no pun intended). Let’s get it!

Hot Mess #1: Donald Trump for being a child


Last night, many of our favorite celebrities gathered at the 74th Golden Globe Awards, giving all of us plenty to talk about.

Out of all of the celebrities, Meryl Streep gave the most memorable speech as she accepted the honorary Cecil B. DeMille Award for her long career in Hollywood. In her speech, Streep ripped Donald Trump to shreds without ever mentioning his name, a move only a GOAT could make.

Read –> Meryl Streep’s Golden Globes Speech

In response to Streep, Trump went straight to Twitter, calling the icon “over-rated.”


The funny part about this story is not so much Trump’s behavior, but the fact that we all were waiting for his tweet after Streep’s speech. Like how predictable can one idiot be?

As much as I want to be upset that our next president uses Twitter for temper tantrums, I just can’t continue to be that mad. At the end of the day, Americans chose to put the child in office…

Hot Mess #2: Any American who voted for Trump while on Obamacare


Look, I’ve said this before. I don’t really want this blog to turn too political, so I’m going to keep this one short and sweet.

This week, the hottest debate in Washington is whether or not to repeal the Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. Obamacare). As the reality of a potential repeal approaches, many Americans who rely on Obamacare are growing fearful. Funny enough, a large number of these Americans were the same ones to elect Trump into office (because that made sense…).

When you find out the ACA and Obamacare are the same thing…


It will be interesting to see how everything plays out over the next few weeks/four years. For now, I’m just going to sit here with my popcorn and hope the world doesn’t blow up…

How the tables are turning on Obamacare

Hot Mess #3: Whoever gave Jenna Bush Hager a super hard time for “Hidden Fences”


Okay, let’s rewind and take it back to last night’s Golden Globes.

On the Globes red carpet, Jenna interviewed Pharrell Williams, opening with “So you’re nominated for Hidden Fences.” Unfortunately for Jenna, there is no such thing as Hidden Fences. There are, however, two Black films currently out in theaters. One is Hidden Figures and the other is Fences.

Personally, I think the gaffe was hilarious. I mean, come on. Figures. Fences. Feelings. There are a lot of Fs at work here, so it’s completely understandable how such a mistake could happen. And, I don’t think it was necessary to crucify Jenna Bush for her error on Twitter just because she’s white (Let’s be honest. This is why this is news.)

Anyways, Jenna gave a heartfelt apology on the Today Show this morning. Poor thing. At least all the Hollywood Blacks showed her plenty of love to make her feel better.

Pharrell Williams Says Everyone Makes Mistakes

All we need is love, love. Love is all we need.

p.s. A part of me wonders if Jenna Bush was forced to apologize since her cousin, Billy, was kicked off air for insensitive remarks last year….Hmmm…Hmmm…Either way, I like Jenna and think the apology was genuine.

Hot Mess #4: Anyone who dragged Donald Glover for his acceptance speech


One standout moment during the Golden Globes was when Donald Glover’s Atlanta won for Best TV Series, Comedy or Musical. The win was completely unexpected along with Glover’s thank yous…

Yup, at the very end of his speech, Glover chose to thank the rap group Migos for making the hit song “Bad and Boujee.”


Needless to say, there were a number of uptight individuals who thought that Glover should have been “better” prepared and should have touched on the significance of his win (a.k.a. been more emotional and commented on the fact that he’s Black and winning a major award like Viola Davis).

Maybe this is an unpopular opinion, but here’s my take….

How about we all just let Donald Glover and every other artist/person live. Although I think it’s important to acknowledge the achievements of people of color in Hollywood, I also think it’s important to let people express themselves. If Donald Glover thinks it’s an appropriate moment to shout out Migos, then well, let him have his moment. Not to mention, shouting out Migos seems almost perfect given the subject matter of Atlanta.

If you haven’t heard Migos hit song, click here –> Bad and Boujee

Aaaaaand, on a completely different note, let’s talk about Brad Pitt….

This man walked into the Golden Globes last night, surprised everyone, looked like his old hot self and killed his 1 minute presentation of Moonlight, a movie he quietly helped to produce and that would ultimately take home Best Drama Motion Picture.


Now, that’s how you handle a terribly public divorce. Get it, Brad!

I’m sure Angie is rooting for you too deep down inside….

My Arranged Marriage With White America

Okay, so I know I’ve disappeared for a couple of weeks… It’s mostly due to the fact that I wanted to avoid turning “Hot Mess Mondays” into a political nightmare. Now, that the U.S. election results are in and anti-Trump protests have broken out across the country, I think it’s finally time to give my two cents on everything that’s been going on. My hope is that after this post, “Hot Mess Mondays” will return back to its roots, highlighting my love of entertainment news with the occasional mentioning of a hot mess politician.

So, let’s get it….

Hot Mess #s 1,2,3,4, and 5: The United States of America


Last Tuesday marked one of the biggest upsets in modern politics. Thanks to the obsolete electoral college, Donald Trump is to become America’s 45th president. Although Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by 200,000 votes, it was not enough to secure her the presidency, leaving many Americans, who thought Hillary’s win was a “sure thing,” in disbelief.

Needless to say, as an American and believer in our democracy, I had several emotions on Tuesday. My first emotion was stress when I saw states that were supposed to be Democrat blue turn Republican red. Then, after a little bit of stress, I turned anxious… After hours of watching the final counting of votes across states, I just wanted the media to call the election and put me and everyone else out of their misery. Next, after some extreme anxiety, I turned angry. I turned angry not because my candidate lost (technically, I voted for Hillary, but it’s not like she took home my People’s Choice Award for Most Outstanding Candidate…), but because I could not believe how many Americans voted for someone who did nothing but spew some of the most racist, homophobic, sexist, and anti-immigrant rhetoric on his campaign trail. Like, WTH…


p.s. Before reading the rest of this post, please know that I do not completely identify with either political party. I’ve spent most of my adult life as a Republican in an effort to have Black representation within the party regardless of how I ultimately voted in the general election. I have never been one to just choose a side for the sake of choosing a side. I vote for who I think will be the best person for the job, and in this case, I chose to vote for the candidate who I thought would not set us back 50 years…

Which brings me to honesty moment numero uno….

I’m actually not that surprised that Trump won. As a basic American, I was hopeful. As a Black American, however, I knew better. I knew better because I have been in an arranged marriage with white America for the last 28 years. 

Wait, but what does that even mean?

Well, let’s have honesty moment numero dos…

As a Black American, I did not choose to come to America. I was born here because my family was brought over as slaves way back when before I was even a thought. Therefore, my existence in this country is all due to a single arrangement between what I assume was a powerful African man/woman and a white man. And, due to this one arrangement, I was destined to enter a relationship with my husband, white America. I refer to my relationship with white America as a marriage because legally we are bound together and have shared many experiences, both good and bad. 

I must admit that my arranged marriage has been on the rocks for the last few years. Between the murder of Black men and women by mostly non-Black police officers, who then later received a slap on the wrist, and the silence of many white Americans on these issues, some days I just don’t know how much more I can take. There’s only so many times I can wake up in the morning, burst into tears after reading another story about police brutality involving a person of color (POC), and then get ready for work where I have to smile in the faces of my white coworkers and pretend that everything is okay.


And don’t get many started on my husband’s support for “All lives matter.” For the purposes of today’s blog, if you or my husband still don’t get what’s wrong with “All lives matter” and “Blue lives matter,” then I mean, let’s just agree to disagree peacefully because that is what America is all about. Right?….#sohelpusGod

Donald Trump

Okay, refocusing…

In the crowning of Trump as our next president, my marriage is now completely strained with white America because of the lack of sympathy he has shown to not just me and Black Americans, but also to anyone who is simply “not like him.”

p.s. I am aware that there were some “not like him” Americans who also voted for Trump and I will never understand why. To elect an official who has ignited a hibernated hatred of those who look like you is beyond me and I didn’t major in the behavioral sciences, so…


Anyways, the fear that is now being felt by my POC, LGBT, non-religious/religious (not Christians), immigrant, and female friends, who did not vote for Trump, is unacceptable.

Do I blame all parts of my husband for Trump’s win?  Absolutely not….buuuut when you look at the breakdown of numbers, I have to say that compared to a select group of my delusional brown and female neighbors, my husband really let this country down. To be exact, fifty-eight percent of him told me that I didn’t matter and neither did the people we I hold most dear to my heart, including some of my sisters-in-law (yes, the white ones).

By voting for Trump, my husband told me that only he matters. He also told me that he is starving for attention and is tired of playing “second fiddle” to the people who are “not like him.”


Actually, now that you mention it, sometimes I do want to file my separation papers…lol But, then I come to my senses, and remember that I believe in this marriage. Through it all, I believe that white America, me, and all of our neighbors can get through this together.

However, that doesn’t mean I’m not about to watch white America like a hawk.


In doing so, I will try my hardest not to call a select group of white America racist or xenophobic….Of course, we may all have to seek serious marriage counseling because if one walks like a duck, talks like a duck, and votes for an orange duck, chances are they are a tad bit racist…But that’s okay because the same way they sometimes hate me and others, I also sometimes hate them. #honestymomentnumerotres lol

Serious note: I know that Americans were not dealt the best of cards this election, and chose to vote for the candidate who they thought would bring change in a positive way. However, a word of incredible caution. For anyone, who believes that Trump is the “anti-establishment” candidate that will help the poor, get ready for one bumpy ride. Since throughout his entire campaign, he did more offending of Americans than talking about his policies, none of us really know what type of president Trump will actually be, and that’s truly terrifying.

It is terrifying not because he is a “wild card” as the media has called him, but because the people around him, who may become some of his most trusted advisers, are members of an establishment that do not involve the majority of us. Knowing this, I encourage everyone to not become comfortable after Trump is sworn in and continue to vote at the state and local levels in an effort to put more positive figures in positions of power. I also encourage everyone not to become violent. I hope that we all will just pay attention and hold Trump accountable for any decision that may put Americans in harms way. And if he surprises us as president and does more good than harm, more power to him. BUT, if he proves to be trash, let’s get him out of here in 4 years. lol

Contra You, You, and You

At some point, I swear that I’m going to become consistent with my posting, but it may not be until I get a new job…Waaaah X-O

Let’s get it!

Hot Mess #1: Donald Trump’s campaign for being completely oblivious


There’s always a story that brings the widest of smiles to my face. This week, it’s one of two sisters who completely trolled a Trump campaign event.

After being asked by her younger sister to attend Eric Trump’s speech in Salisbury, NC, Annie Cardelle (pictured above) was originally against the idea. Luckily for us, Annie not only decided to attend the event, but also thought of the best way possible to show her lack of enthusiasm for the entire Trump clan.

Taking a black Sharpie, Annie wrote “Latina Contra Trump” on a white t-shirt and posed with her brilliance for the rest of the evening. She and her sister even took a picture with Eric Trump, shirt fully visible.


Honestly, I just think it’s funny that a 23 year-old got away with this. I also find it funny that not one person at the event realized what Annie’s shirt really said. #thebest

Hot Mess #2: Billy Bush for being let go from NBC


Last Monday, Billy Bush was officially fired from NBC for his part in the video featuring Donald Trump speaking poorly about women. Like I said, I have always loved Billy, but even I cannot support such idiotic and disgusting behavior from men.

Now that he will no longer be appearing on the Today Show, Billy has started to pack up his NYC townhouse with plans to return to LA…

You know, I would say, “Poor Billy” except for the fact that he’s the first cousin of Dubya. The entire Bush clan is rich, and well, I just can’t feel THAT bad for the wealthy…#Sorry. Not to mention, everyone in LA is a hot mess and will eventually “forgive” Billy once this Trump craziness dies down. He’ll have another job on a different network in the next couple of years.

p.s. I’m also hearing that Billy settled his contract with NBC for $6-10 million. Talk about a serious punishment…

Hot Mess #3: Amy Schumer for just being a mess


Like I always say, there’s always one.

On Friday, actress and comedian Amy Schumer decided to release her parody of Beyonce’s Formation. Formation was the lead single off of Bey’s critically acclaimed album Lemonade, which celebrates all things Black.

Although Amy’s music video was meant to be funny, there was absolutely nothing funny about it. Matter of fact, the entire video left me very much confused. From the dirty clothes being worn by Schumer and Goldie Hawn to the Native American extras, I, in the words of Vivica A. Fox, just didn’t get it…

Without question, this was one parody that fell completely flat. Try again, Amy.  Try again.

p.s. Can the younger generation please leave the legends out of their mess? Goldie Hawn is too much of a Hollywood treasure to be in this trash. Sigh.

Hot Mess #4: Bow Wow and Soulja Boy for joining forces


Switching complete gears, let’s talk about the recent announcement that Bow Wow and Soulja Boy will be releasing a joint album titled “Ignorant Sh*t.”


Not too long ago, Bow Wow claimed that he was retiring from music. I guess that was a complete lie seeing as though this Soulja Boy collaboration is scheduled to drop tomorrow.

Honestly, I don’t know what to think about this. The album already sounds a mess and it hasn’t even been released. For now, I’ll just try not to hate on anyone’s hustle.

Anyways, does anyone else remember this Bow Wow, Soulja Boy classic? —> Marco Polo

O-M-G, the best…lol

All Eyes On U.S.

Welp, it’s another Monday evening, and that means it’s time to post.

Let’s get it!

Hot Mess #1: Donald Trump for just being Donald Trump


Last week, a video from 2005 was leaked of Mr. Trump and NBC’s Billy Bush having a conversation about women on the set of a soap opera. Even though the men are off camera for the majority of the video, they can clearly be heard exchanging crass comments about women. Trump even goes on to mention how he hit on one woman (now identified as Entertainment Tonight‘s Nancy O’Dell) before being rejected saying, “I did try and f— her. She was married.”

Leaked Donald Trump video

Unfortunately, this Trump comment was not the worst in a series of unforgiveables. Throughout the conversation, Trump goes on to claim that being a celebrity has allowed him to have his way with women and that he can grab them “by the p—y.” #Gross

Honestly, we all knew that Trump was a dirty dog. During his entire campaign, he has made one offensive comment after another, so why should anyone be surprised?

Hot Mess #2: Billy Bush for just being a mess


When I was younger, I watched NBC’s Access Hollywood religiously. The show not only allowed me to get all of my celeb news/gossip for the week, but it also helped me to realize my passion for everything entertainment.

I was so impressed by Nancy O’Dell and Billy Bush’s chemistry as co-hosts, and wanted to be just like them (I sound like a child lol)….Anyways, having Billy Bush be a part of this hot mess story surrounding Donald Trump is MOST disappointing.

Do better, Billy.


p.s. Maybe I could forgive Billy if he hadn’t also defended Ryan Lochte’s behavior in Brazil not that long ago. Now, I’m questioning his judgment and character as a person… We’ll see what decision NBC makes on whether or not to end his contract. Right now, it’s not looking too good for the veteran anchor.


FUN FACT: Billy Bush is the first cousin of President George W. Bush. See the resemblance?

Apparently, Billy didn’t publicize this relation  in favor of his growing television career. Too bad distancing himself from the Bush family still didn’t keep him from being an ass. #sideeye

Hot Mess #3: Kaleigh McEnany for being annoying


Yesterday, in an attempt to take the focus off of the leaked video mentioned above, Donald Trump held a press conference featuring former President Bill Clinton’s rape accusers. Most informed journalists saw both the conference and its timing (just before the second presidential debate) as a way for Trump to put someone else in hot water besides himself.

Actually, most people seemed to understand what Trump was doing other than Kaleigh. Like a chihuahua, Kaleigh would not shut up at the pre-debate panel about how the press conference was not a “stunt” and how Clinton’s accusers should be heard.


No matter how much Kaleigh’s fellow CNN panelists tried to explain that Trump’s act was disingenuous, the poor blonde just couldn’t comprehend.

Personally, I didn’t think there was anyone worse than Fox’s Tomi Lahren, but I guess I was wrong…

Side note: The topics of sexual assault and rape are very important and Clinton’s accusers have every right to tell their stories. However, it’s probably best if it’s treated more like a very serious conversation and less like a sideshow at a circus.

Hot Mess #4: The presidential debate for making everyone uncomfortable


If you did not watch the debate last night, you probably did yourself a HUGE favor.


CNN’s Anderson Cooper and ABC’s Martha Raddatz served as moderators and were relentless in their questions for Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. From discussing Trump’s  disturbing comments about women to Mrs. Clinton’s email scandal, the room felt uncomfortable even through the TV for the first 45 minutes. Not to mention, Bill Clinton was also in the audience and behind him were his rape accusers…Yikes.

The Debate Moderators Went In Hard And People Loved It

To be honest, the whole thing was #teamtoomuch.

Sometimes, I just don’t even have the capacity to accept that this messiness is what our presidential election has turned into. Everyone is a liar or a fraud or a cheater, and I just can’t handle.

Anyways, I know the world has its eyes on us, and our country is just the epitome of a hot mess.

Hallelujah Herre

A lot has happened this past week, and I really don’t know where to begin… My brain is starting to hurt, and I’m wondering if that’s from the latest news reports or from my lack of sleep… Alas, trying to work a campus recruitment job while being understaffed is proving to be rough on my sleep schedule, but I am determined to write! lol

Okay, let’s get it…

Hot Mess # 1: The 2016 Emmys for not including Christina Grimmie


Last night marked the 68th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. All of our favorite stars were out in full force to honor the achievements of those in television, including host Jimmy Kimmel.

Although there were plenty of happy highlights (i.e. several people of color, including Sterling K. Brown and Rami Malek, took home major awards in the supporting and lead actor categories), there was also one major “oversight” by the Television Academy.

During the In-Memoriam segment, the late singer, Christina Grimmie, was left out of the montage. Christina was the Youtube sensation turned The Voice finalist who was fatally shot in the head by a fanatic back in June.


Noticing her absence during the clip, outraged fans immediately took to social media. In response to the backlash, the Emmys released a statement explaining that there wasn’t enough time to include everyone in the montage and that a complete list of those who have passed could be found on their website.

In all honesty, I think it’s pretty wack of the Emmys to exclude Grimmie. She was definitely one of the most memorable contestants ever on The Voice and was a force on Youtube. Not to mention, The Voice actually won an award last night for Best Reality-Competition Program, which again begs the question, “Why no Grimmie?” One would think that the show’s win coupled with the horrific details around Grimmie’s murder would be enough to get her into the live montage.

Needless to say, I am a little disappointed in the show’s producers. Maybe they’ll get it right next year.

On a brighter note, if you’d like to see the complete list of Emmy winners,

Jimmy Kimmel was also a great host. Shout out to Jimmy. 🙂

Hot Mess # 2: Tori Kelly for magically popping up on every awards show…


Now, I’ve been thinking this for quite some time, but how is it that a girl with no hits is always performing at every awards show???

Tori Kelly Sings Hallelujah

Don’t get me wrong. Tori Kelly has a beautiful voice. However, she has no singles. Well, correction. She has singles that not that many people pay attention to. The Billboard charts don’t lie…

With that said, Tori has managed to build a strong career out of performing at literally every major awards ceremony from the Grammys to the Emmys….And now, I really want to know how and why she gets these gigs.

The best person I can compare her to is Jennifer Hudson, who performs everywhere without a successful album. The difference, however, is that Jennifer has won an Oscar and has starred in hit movies like Sex In The City.

Anyways, I just want someone to explain to me how this American Idol reject (harsh, I know, but true) has managed to get this much shine. Please explain. Please and thank you.


Hot Mess # 3: Clare Danes for making the classic spray tan mistake


Honestly, I don’t have much more to say outside of showing this picture, but I do wonder if celebrities realize how orange they are until the blogs. Like this is so orange that people began to compare the actress to Donald Trump. #Ouch

Side note: I was going to put Donald Trump on this list for remarks about the Chelsea bomber in New York, but I don’t want to give him too much shine.

Hot Mess # 4: Nelly’s fans for streaming his music to pay off his tax debt


After learning that Nelly owed the IRS $2.4 million, fans vowed to pay back the rapper’s debt in music streams. Some people even figured out the exact number of times “Hot in Herre” would have to be streamed in order to free the rapper completely of his debt.

I know I put this story on my Hot Mess list, but I’m actually not sure if it’s a hot mess or just funny. I mean, who thought that Nelly still had so many devout followers?

Personally, I wonder where these “fans” were for his last few singles…But you know, that’s just me…   Nelly’s Hot In Herre Sees Spike

People always A-maze me…

Also, whenever I’m late, maybe I’ll just post a cat meme. It seems like a reasonable solution…lol
