The 'Love & Hip Hop Atlanta' (S)ex Tape, It Worked!

From HuffPostLive -- "Mimi Faust of 'Love and Hip Hop' is the latest reality star to release a tape. Are these (s)ex tapes the new guarantee to becoming a household name, and do we hold the women who make them to different standards, depending on their race?"

-A good question asked by HuffPostLive ...Before Monday, we as many others had no idea who Mimi Faust was or could care less about the show. But apparently we were in the minority in this world of rachetness. If you're tuned into social media (facebook, twitter, instagram) you couldn't avoid it. As we see it, it was not a (s)ex tape. It was a promotional video you had to work for to see. Brilliant marketing wouldn't you say! And for those of you with no talent, you now have a business model for yourself, and that is the sad part. Just wondering...do any of these people on this show make music, have a song on the radio, do anything that is productive other than get paid to act.

For those of you that think it's just a TV show, we do know this...Some teenage girl somewhere is talking with her friends on social media about this, if not right now, sometime over the last few or the next few days. She has already seen the tape and her mindset has been transformed. She now thinks that the way to success in life in the future is to get with her boyfriend, make a tape and put it out there for the world to see while so called responsible people, who head prominent media platforms that African Americans interact with, engage in discussions of the merits of a (s)ex tape as entertainment or worst yet as work. Why? Simply because people seem to love it.

Gayle King and Charles Barkley are finalizing a deal that would have them jointly lead a primetime hour each week on CNN, according to people familiar with the matter and multiple news sources. The pact is not complete and there is always the risk it may not come to fruition, one of these people says. CNN declined to make executives available for comment.

Tavis Smiley owned Los Angeles talk station KBLA Talk 1580 donated $20,000 in scholarship money to the NABJLA and MPJI. Smiley says, “The National Association of Black Journalists of Los Angeles and the Minority Photo-Journalism Institute are making a tangible difference in our community by helping students pursue careers in journalism and communications. KBLA ‘Talk 1580’ strongly believes in enlightening, empowering and encouraging tomorrow’s reporters, editors and potential talk radio hosts. Hopefully, our scholarships make a difference.”

• WLBT anchor and meteorologist Barbie Bassett is no longer with the Jackson, Miss., NBC station after racially insensitive comments. In early March, Bassett was speaking with her fellow anchors on air about Snoop Dogg’s latest business venture, Snoop Cali Blanc, a new wine in his wine label. In response to a comment about putting a Snoop Dogg tattoo on her shoulder, Bassett said, “Fo shizzle, my nizzle.” Bassett is white. Charlamagne tha God defended Bassett as he discussed the situation on The Breakfast Club. “She might be old. She probably has no idea nizzle is a derivative of the N-word. That’s not a fireable offense. I hope she sues.”
