    When They See Us

    This made me smile: https://mobile.twitter.com/ava/status/1141614794367066112 If I'm ever run into him in NYC, I'm giving him a big hug.

    S04.E02: I No Longer Imagine

    This what bothers me about Nova; she never owns up to her ish; she thinks that actions are for the greater good--never mind the collateral damage she leaves behind. What I found infuriating was how she seems to think she did her family a favor by airing their dirty laundry--despite their objections. As some mentioned up thread, she could have.written a fictionalized account to spare the her family humiliation. I hope destroying families and reputation was worth the being on the NYT bestsellers list. For once, I want Charley to win, but I'm worried that the book will give the Landrys some leverage against her

    S02.E02: Worth It

    Oh, no they didn't break out the "Baby Love"! That was my jam back in day! Elecktra has found her calling as a dominatrix--she certainly has the personality for it! Patti Lupone can do no wrong; I am vaugely familiar with Lenora Helmsley, but she seems like she was a female version of that orange, gross man in the White House. That said, I love Blanca's drive and persistence; she's trying to live her best life on borrowed time with her kids, which is why I glad she decided to comply to take the meds. I am confused, though-didn't they start the new cocktail drug around that time (late 80's early 9o's)? I remember hearing about it as a teen, it.was hailed as a major breakthrough as it made the virus more manageable, and significantly increased the survival rate. I would hope her Blanca's doctor made her aware of it

    S04.E01 Pleasure is Black

    Dang, Nova....She's trash for putting her family's business in the streets. I wouldn't blame them if they shun her for it. I hope she kept that same energy and revealed some of her dirt in that book.

    ...and I love how Ava is unbothered by her pity party and making no apologies; she said what she said, Linda. Own your ish.

    Oh, how.could I forget that one? I am waiting for that day, too. I hope Karma ruins him to the point from which he never recovers.

    When They See Us

    She is facing a HUGE backlash since the docuseries aired; there is an increasing call to boycott her books, and for major booksellers and her publisher to cancel her; plus, a non-profit organization she was involved with kicked her out--not to mention her deleting her social media accounts due Twitter severely dragging her. Even Glamour, who honored her 25 years ago, had to release a statement after they got called out. Her day of reckoning is 30 years overdue, but is right on time. Thank you, Ava for bringing truth to power. Let's hope Elizabeth Lederer and that orange dumpster fire get theirs, and too.

    When They See Us

    I just finished watching the entire series, and there is sooo much to unpack. I was familiar with this case, but seeing what these young men experienced had me seething with anger. So basically Fairstein and her crew was so desperate to apprehend the somone---anyone, they threw any BS theory against the wall hoping it would stick, and when it didn't, they coerced confessions from all--except for Yusef--whose mother thankfully, wasn't having it. They were all collateral damage as a result. Despite a confession from Reyes, and solid evidence--including DNA--that he acted alone, they were too delusional to admit any wrongdoing, and still insist that they were guilty, and they have the chutzpah to get salty after the five men received their much deserved settlement. Despicable. Fairstein is trash, and I'm disgusted that she is out here living her best life as author, knowing that she ruined these kids. I'm not going talk about that orange, corrosive slime who's currently squatting at the White House. I wanted to hug Korey during the incarceration scenes; I immediately thought of Kalief Browder as he was the same age as Korey when got locked up. The fact that he made it 12 years and is still around to share his story is incredible. Once again, Ava came through. She can do no wrong. Give her all the awards. Jharell Jerome needs to go ahead and prepare his acceptance speeches. Yes, I'm claiming that one. Give him all the nods and awards, too.

    Surviving R. Kelly

    Either she's in serious denial or complicit--that's all I'm going to say.

    Surviving R. Kelly

    I agree; it think the novelty will wear off in a couple of months...but, to ensure he doesn't go away quietly, he just released a new single--right after the docuseries concluded. How convenient. /s

    Surviving R. Kelly

    I'm surprised she declined to come forward for this documentary; especially since she's been vocal about the Me Too movement, and her story as victim herself.

    Surviving R. Kelly

    Seeing Azeriel's parents at the studio was heartbreaking, you could hear the desperation and frustration in their voices when they tried to see their daughter...and the that fact he had connections with the police department is rubbing salt to the would. R. Kelly is despicable, disgusting trash. I'm glad he's slowly getting his day of reckoning. I'm embarrassed that I actually listened to his music. No more.

    Surviving R. Kelly

    That stuck with me the most; the complicity; Aaliyah, who herself was baby, didn't want to marry this creep, and yet not only his flunky did nothing to stop it, but he was a willing participant. He's trash, just like his pedophile boss. This was worse than I expected, there's so, so much to unpack; I knew about the marriage to Aaliyah, the settlements, even the sex tape (which thankfully, I've never seen), but I was shocked to know his history of predatory behavior was an open secret in Chicago, and his entourage played along instead of alerting the authorities. And the abuse...my goodness--just horrific. I felt so icky after the first episode, I wanted to take a shower. It is important to note that dream hampton reached out to several major recording artists for this docuseries, (notably Jay-Z, Erykah Badu and Dave Chapelle to name a few)---John Legend was the only one who participated; the rest turned a blind eye by declining to come forward and call him out on his creepy behavior. It's as if he's immune to the MeToo movement. Much love to the victims who courageously shared their stories; I hope they find healing and justice from this POS--which is over 25 years overdue. I hope he receives the worst form of Karma from which he never recovers
