In Defense of Diana

I normally leave the celebrity gossip to the experts, but I spotted this photo of the one and only Miss Diana Ross over at DListed (photo courtesy of Wenn), and I felt compelled to comment. The hilarious dude at DListed declares, “Diana Ross needs to behead whatever queen did her make-up.” So harsh! Of course […]

A Question for the Ladies

I’m well aware that I have more than a few male readers. Most of you might not leave comments ever, but I know you dudes are there, soaking up the Afrobella love. And being married to a typical manly male, I know there are some things he’s down to discuss, and some things he doesn’t […]

Afrobella, Interviewed

Today yours truly was on NPR’s News and Notes for like, five minutes. Click here to listen — I come in towards the end of the exchange. I was super nervous and very excited, can you tell?? I wish circumstances allowed me to be on for the entire roundtable, I had a LOT to contribute […]
