#BLACKWOMANMAGIC #BLACKGIRLMAGIC - AVA DUVERNAY, OPRAH WINFREY, & STORM REID On ESSENCE MAG!!!


<p>new cover image march 2018</p>

Filmmaker AVA DUVERNAY tackles the 1962 MADELINE L' EGLE novel, A WRINKLE IN TIME, and, tackles the film by having STROM REID and OPRAH WINFREY as two of its stars!!!

AVA DUVERNAY, OPRAH WINFREY, STORM REID, and, A WRINKLE In TIME, are the cover story for the February 2018 BLACK HISTORY MONTH Issue of ESSENCE Magazine.


Here are some interview interludes:

OPRAH on A WRINKLE In TIME vs The WIZARD Of OZ:

“I just watched The Wizard of Oz again last year with one of my godchildren who was seeing it for the first time, and the magic of that is exactly what Wrinkle is going to be for another generation."

STORM on working with AVA and OPRAH:

“This is a huge milestone in my career, to be in a movie with Ava DuVernay directing and Miss Oprah being in it. When I think about it, I don’t really know how to feel. There are so many emotions. But it’s just a great blessing that will forever change my life.”


AVA on the magnitude of being a trailblazer;

“When I’m introduced as the first this, first that...," DuVernay began about the magnitude of the project. "It doesn’t mean anything to me. It’s not anything I earned. I don’t allow myself to take it in like it’s real. I’m trying to have all of us up in there and more. I don’t want to be someplace by myself. I don’t want to be on a pedestal as the first this and that. That’s so wack; that is the old way of thinking.”

I LOVE 2 EAT #182 - The SHRIMP BASKET!!!


Yours Truly CCG apologizes for forgetting to post this eatery from my return trip from NEW ORLEANS to ATLANTA during CHRISTMAS SEASON 2017!!!

On our way back to The ATL; Sis, Niecy, and, CCG took a break for fuel and food in MOBILE, AL.


SHRIMP BASKET

5405 US - 90
SHRIMP BASKET - TILLMAN'S CORNER: MOBILE, AL 36619
251.602.8447

Leaving New Orleans traveling on I-10 East, Mobile, AL, is about a two-to-three hour drive from the Crescent City. Located in Southern Alabama, it is a coastal port city, and; is a vital part of the GULF COAST REGION.

What all of this means, is that like restaurant establishments in New Orleans, the SHRIMP BASKET in Mobile is able to purchase, prepare, serve, and, sell FRESH SEAFOOD.

We arrived at about 1:00 PM to a house at about one-third seating capacity. We were seated within about 3 minutes. It seems that we had just beat the second half of the much rush, because; after we were seated, patrons were steadily entering the building. By the time we left, they were about three-quarters full.

CCG decided to go with a Seafood Po-Boy, specifically; an OYSTER And SHRIMP 1/2 & 1/2 OVERSTUFFED DRESSED PO-BOY (photo below).



AGAIN; Mobile is on the Gulf Coast, so their seafood is FRESH!!!

Because we officially are now in Oyster Season, the oysters were nice and plump. The shrimp were of a nice size, and; both oysters and shrimp were Fresh-Out-the-Grease HOT.

The lettuce and tomatoes were fresh, cool, and, crisp. The Hoagie Bread was nice and warm.

Next time at the SHRIMP BASKET, Ya Boy is gonna hit their RAW OYSTER BAR.



(took this photo earlier in the morning before leaving New Orleans at MORNING CALL COFFEE STAND)

GOOD FOOD, GOOD CONVERSATION, GOOD LOCATION, GOOD SERVICE, GOOD TIMES!!!

#BLACKGIRLMAGIC #BLACKGIRLSROCK - DEELISHIS THROWS BIG BOOTY CLAPS BACK At COCO Over THICK WOMEN MOVEMENT (NSFW)!!!

Image result for coco vs deelishis

in the ongoing BATTLE Of The BIG BOOTY BEAUTIES, Model/Reality TV Star LONDON DEELISHIS CHARLES has chosen to respond to Model/Reality TV Star NICOLE COCO AUSTIN who recently claimed that SHE was responsible for the recognition that Big-Bodied Beauties now receive in the entertainment industry!!!

COCO posted to her INSTAGRAM:

"I would like to shed light to almost 21 years of modeling ..I don’t post much about it & new followers don’t even know I had a career in modeling they just see a wife,mother and someone that was on reality tv but just like every actor, singer, rapper, entertainer I’m proud of what I’ve done. I feel people should know it wasn’t easy..I helped pave the way for thick girls during the skinny genre (during the Kate Moss days what they call the waif era) to be noticed as beautiful..this was back before social media when magazines were popping, back before KimK, Nicki Minaj..( I mention them because young people see pop culture as the history makers but they need to know it started somewhere before them, this was also back before the plastic surgery craze. During my time it was pretty much Jlo that was making waves with the derriere phenomenon and Cindy Margolos was a popular bikini model and Buffie the Body was a popular urban model and of course I need to give props to Anna Nicole Smith for also seeing this vision..To have booty it was considered to be fat in the modeling world.. But I helped changed the minds of what booty was. Today its a normal thing to see all different shapes and sizes, no one even thinks about it anymore. I helped history..I don’t want to toss it aside like it was nothing…I’d like to think some of my modeling was meaningful… After tons of calendars,DVD’s over 100 magazine covers and editorials I’m still standing..Thank you for all years of support .Power to the booty and strong healthy women!
(This pic is from one of my motorcylce calendars)"
DEELISHIS is most widely-known for winning VH1 RealiTV  Dating Competition FLAVOR Of LOVE: SEASON 2 in 2007, and; she most appropriately calls out COCO on charges of APPROPRIATION Of The SUPER THICK MOVEMENT.

During her statement, she gives the specific names of trailblazers such as BUFFIE The BODY, MELYSSA FORD, ESTHER BAXTER, and, KITOY JOHNSON.

(This pic is from one of my motorcylce calendars) Update to post!!! This was posted Sunday 1/14 & ALL comments were positive until race was brought up today.Let me remind you 20 years ago there were not a lot of white girls w/ thick bodies in the modeling game.They didn't consider my body type as the standard therefore It was harder to work in the industry.I was one of the 1st white models to break the mold & go mainstream with my body type and to let people know its OK to be curvy in the modeling world.Today curvy is the norm but when I first started out it wasn't. Yesterday I felt I explained this thoroughly but I see some of you needed more details
