This is America and everyone allegedly has the right to vote for whomever they deem to be worthy of our great country. However, like most of you, we were shocked when Donald Trump became the 45th President of The United States. There are few things more shocking than this.

Then again the news that Tina Campbell, gospel artist and half of the musical duo of Mary, Mary actually voted for Trump may make us reconsider that.

Earlier this year Tina urged the country to pray for Trump, relaying it was the “Christian thing to do.” Still, Tina never outright stated she actually voted for him, but has now come forward that she did and explained why.

Now, in an interview with The Root, Tina says she voted for Donald because she felt his Christian values aligned with hers.

“I had a perspective. I had a feeling. And I put it out there. I know there’s some people who don’t agree. I do not agree with a lot of the decisions that this man makes. And I made that very clear in my statement.

“I was faced with two presidential candidates that I really did not approve of,” Campbell elaborated. “And so I had to find something, a commonality with one of them, that would make me feel like if I have to vote, I should utilize my right to vote. Since I don’t prefer either of them, what can I find that would make me vote? And some of Donald Trump’s views on Christianity, honestly, is what caused me to vote for him.

“Many of the decisions that he has made afterwards, I have not been in agreement with at all, which I wasn’t in agreement with my last president that I voted for,” she added. “But however, as a Christian, my perspective is to pray for the president, to not use my social platforms or other platforms to try to destroy this man, because at the end of the day, he still represents the country that I live in.

“So if I’m going to use my platform, my power, my voice, I ought to use it to pray for him. To pray that he would make wise decisions, that he would be true to the oath that he took, and to not incite fear by talking about everything that’s wrong, especially with people that’s my color,” she explained further.

We have to say we are surprised Tina voted for him. Praying for the man is the Christian thing to do, but electing him into office is a completely different matter. During his campaign Trump was anti-everything that was not White, rich, and male; winning The Oval Office of deep rooted racial fears and a good ol’ boy mentality. If she is now feeling foolish and wrought with voter’s remorse then all we can say is good for her. Not cool Tina, NOT COOL AT ALL. Thanks for putting shackles back on a few million Americans’ feet–pun absolutely intended!

Zoe’s casting does not come at a complete surprise. The producers of the film announced they were looking for a woman of color to portray Catwoman and she among others like Sanaa Lathan, Keke Palmer, and even former Star cast members, Ryan Destiny and Brittany O’Grady were on the shortlist for the highly sought after role. Zoe is a great choice as she exudes the mystique and sex appeal of the character, and she is no stranger to comic book roles or action movies. As you may recall she was Angel Salvadore in X-Men: First Class and Christina in the Divergent films.

Catwoman is an important part of the Batman mythos, and is easily one of comic’s most layered characters. She may very well be the epitome of a woman who has her own, on her own, and is only on her own side. Being an Olympic level athlete armed with advanced thieving skills, martial arts, razor sharp claws, and a cat o’ nine tails whip she is a true “Feline Fatale!” Congrats Zoe we cannot wait to watch you kill this role!

It’s Splitsville! Kenya Moore & Marc Daley, Announce They’re Divorce After 2 Years of Marriage!

We really wish we could “say it ain’t so,” but the swan song has played and it’s official Kenya Moore, and her husband, Marc Daley have announced they are divorcing. The beautiful couple are calling it quits after just two years of marriage. To some it comes as a shock, to others it was expected as Marc was never to keen on being on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, or Kenya’s return to the drama of the series–and there’s been plenty leading up to the debut of the twelfth season.

It is with profound sadness that I regret to inform my fans that I am divorcing my husband Marc Daly. Due to recent and ongoing circumstances, I can no longer continue in the marriage. My sole concern and focus is and will always be my daughter, Brooklyn, my miracle baby. She was made in love and true commitment. I ask for our privacy to be respected moving forward.”

We really hate to see Marc and Kenya break up. They are such a beautiful couple. It looks like the reality television curse on relationships continues. This all also comes as a shocker to us after we just saw them discussing their fertility issues on the Tamron Hall Show,  where she discussed having to stick herself with hormone shots and take suppositories just so they could conceive little Brooklyn. Hopefully these two will be great co-parents and maybe even friends for her sake. Well Kenya welcome to RHOA these next two seasons for you are about to be LIT!

“Pose” Star Indya Moore Claps Back at Claudia Jordan Over Perceived Transphobic Comments!

It is never a good look or a good time when two ladies we love so much are at odds on such a controversial topic. Apparently, Pose star and trans activist, Indya Moore, is displeased with Claudia Jordan’s recent comments and questions concerning transgender people. In fact, she has outright declared Claudia’s comments and inquiries to be transphobic and off center to more important issues in the trans community; like the high number of murders of transgender women of color.

Claudia Jordan

The tift began when Claudia tweeted the following after her interview with actor Malik Yoba, who recently revealed he is attracted to transgender women and came onto her radio show, The All New Morning Rush on 105.7 Dallas, for an interview and to discuss the forthcoming Visibility March set for September 28th in Washington, D.C.

As you can see above Indya, as a transgender woman,  was offended. When it comes to interaction with transgender people it is considered rude and offensive to bring up their genitalia as it relates to their gender identity. This can be especially offensive coming from a cisgender (denoting or relating to a person whose sense of personal identity and gender corresponds with their birth sex) person.

Indya’s retort including the murder of so many transgender women of color, the most recent being a seventeen year old girl who found tied up and burned to death in a car is heart wrenching and timely. Claudia may have been genuinely asking from a place of trying to understand, but with a topic that sensitive and still taboo, she should have done some research surrounding the etiquette needed when discussing this subject matter. Indya recently wore earrings with portraits of all the aforementioned murdered transgender women this year. We hope these two can come to a place of understanding over this issue. They are both such fun, beautiful, and talented women!

You can catch Claudia’s entire interview with on Smooth R&B 105.7’s radio’s site. Check out snippets of the interview below:
