What Diahann Carroll Meant To Me

Image result for diahann carroll dynasty

Ms Carroll passed away last week at the age of 84 and it made me very sad. I didn’t know her personally but I admired her career path and how she carried herself during that long career. She was a groundbreaking artist several times over. Two reasons I loved her: Her history making roles on Julia and Dynasty. She wanted to be seen like everyone else AND as a black woman doing it. It is very similar to how I live my life…change woman to man lol She fought hard to play roles of diverse nature like in Claudine for which she was nominated for an Oscar for Lead Actress. She wanted to be and became the “first black bitch on television” when she played Dominque Deveraux on Dynasty. She wanted the same juicy line s and antics as the other ladies on the show and she got them.

She was classy and sophisticated and of course beautiful to look at but she also radiated beauty from within. I love the say she spoke. She also had a sense of humor. She felt like an Auntie to me. My of my long time friends and family know I was a big fan. She was a good actress and I am so proud of her singing too.

I will miss any future performances of hers but we have a long past of her work to watch when we want to. I hope her journey to the other side wasn’t too painful. I will miss her.

Lose One, Won One!

I just won My first award as and adult in the media field. I was nominated for two awards! A first for me! It was for my former show Breaking Into with James Lott Jr on Black Hollywood Live. the judges after two rounds nominated me for Best Host and Best News Entertainment Show Recorded or Live! I was estatic! I ended the show earlier this year after 4 great years on the air!
What made it even more special was it was for a new and exciting and inclusive to people of color award show , the Capital City Web Awards!
They were held at the Arc Theatre in Washington DC. I didn’t think I was going to win but that didn’t matter, I wanted to be a part of this historic occasion! Also they asked me to co present the Lead Actress category!
After a hard travel experience of almost not making it, I was there! The best host category was the first of the night. It was a trip hearing my name! I lost. I got to feel what that was like. I wasn’t upset, it went to great people. I wasn’t surprised. It was all good. I was able to relax.
Six awards later my other catergory was up. I assumed the winner would be the show of the host winners. My bow tie was hanging off me, I was relaxed in my seat .
Then they said “The award goes to …Breaking Into with James Lott Jr”
I was shocked to say the least! And apparently my speech was the hit of the night! It came from my heart!!
Thank you Anthony Anderson and crew for making a dream realized for me after 12 years in the biz and at age 50!
So now I have the full experience of an awards show!!

Find The Positive

It’s not easy to do sometimes. It’s not easy to a lot of the time! But it is necessary to do If you want to continue in life. Sure you can be negative and live but what kind of life is that?!

I don’t like living darkly. Living darkly can lead me to think and do all kinds of things that will hurt me and others around me. I choose to look for the positive spin on things. That doesn’t mean that I don’t see the negative, I see it. I look for something out of it can help me.

A great example is my Bells Palsy! It sucked to have it! I hated having it! Now I take that experience and travel across the country and share it with others in a presentation format and get paid for it!! Now I’m helping others that might be going through it or something similar. I found the positive.

I invite you all to try.
