Happy Birthday, Breonna Taylor!

You turn 27 and, under normal circumstances, you should be able to go out and celebrate with family and friends. Instead, Breonna Taylor is being memorialized and is in the center of what CNN anchor, Don Lemon has referred to as Racism2020. It is one of the biggest #BlackLivesMatters movements we have seen in our lifetimes, in my lifetime, when we should dislike people based on their behavior not on the color of their skin. Right as COVID and shelter-in-place was beginning, Taylor's life was about to end when a search warrant went wrong. 

The police were looking for drug dealing men but the main home they were to be searching was not even apparently close to Breonna's, an emergency room room tech. However, it was suspected her apartment was a locale for receiving packages, thus a no-knock warrant was issued. After midnight on March 13th, enter the police (sans announcement of who they were) and yes, Taylor's boyfriend did fire a shot and hit an officer but in self-defense (he was authorized to have a gun and charges have been dropped, for now but I do believe it will not be good if they bring them back up). As for Breonna, she was fired upon at least eight times and took her life. Today, she will not be able to see her 27th birthday. So, what can be done to honor her memory? Here are some ways:

Cate Young or @battymamzelle on social media, has organized the #SayHerName and #BirthdayForBreonna campaigns for today. Share photos of her, artwork, whatever ways you want to help with these hashtags and don't forget to send a birthday card in honor of Breonna to Kentucky officials, demanding action as we are still waiting for her killers to be brought to justice. Send them to:

Office of the Attorney General
700 Capital Avenue, Suite 118
Frankfort, Kentucky 40601-3449

Mayor Greg Fischer
527 W Jefferson Street #600
Louisville, KY 40202

Don't send words of anger or hate; be diplomatic. We are better than that but we want justice. And don't worry if the cards get there next week; we celebrate birthdays all month around here. Happy birthday, beautiful Breonna. May you rest in paradise!

A 'Jerseylicious' Split!

  photo courtesy of When you were on a semi-successful reality show, especially as one of the key players, and everyone watched your love story unfold, it only makes sense they will want to keep following you after the series has ended. Such has been the case for 'Jerseylicious' star, Tracy DiMarco , who always went head-to-head with Olivia Blois-Sharpe on the show based around the never-ending drama at the Jersey salon, The Gatsby. Eventually, DiMarco got her happily ever after when she married Corey Epstein in her dream wedding. She continued to pursue her passion, have three kids, develop a wildly successful podcast, and work on clothing and accessories.  But, when you are in the public eye, boasting 541K followers on Instagram , almost everything you do is up for scrutiny. Fans (and haters) began to notice a lack of presence when it came to her husband, Corey and questioned if their marriage was okay. There is an abundance of photos of daughters, Skylar and

'The Real L Word' Cast- Where Are They Now?

  photo courtesy of With the return of the hit Showtime series, 'The L Word,' it makes fans of the original show and ultimate reality spinoff, 'The Real L Word,' quite nostalgic. Actors can keep acting but reality stars can drift off into the clouds after their 15 minutes of fame are over. TRLW lasted three seasons with a revolving door of lesbians who soon became like friends and family. Initially based in California, the show followed the lives of a handful of gay women, somehow intertwined in life, and what it was like to date, fall in love, have sex, try to make babies, propose, be successful, and so much more. By the final season, the series went bi-coastal, utilizing NYC as a playground, as well. The show ended in 2012 with two weddings and a lot of tears. So, where are they now? Get ready to catch up with our fave reality celesbians! - Whitney Mixter : the player of the series, she may have hooked up with almost every member of the cast. But,
