Episode 7 Blog – A Cancerous Cell


It was an honor to be invited by fashion designer, Raphael Cox, to walk in the Women of Atlanta Fashion show to benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation.  My mission is to raise awareness about breast cancer and to motivate women to not only set and achieve their goals but, live a healthy life.

In 2014, there will be an estimated 1,665,540 new cancer cases diagnosed and 585,720 cancer deaths in the US. Cancer remains the second most common cause of death in the US, accounting for nearly 1 of every 4 deaths1.  It’s important to perform daily self-examinations, routine mammograms and schedule annual physicals with your physician.

Some of the models on the catwalk were breast cancer survivors, many of whom were under the age of 40.  This came as a surprise to most in the audience.  Seeing such young women, who had stared death in the face and came out victorious was inspiring.  Women under 40 are usually in the planning stage of their lives, planning a wedding, planning to start a family, planning a girlfriends get away, or simply planning for the next phase of their lives.  Never, in my 30’s could I imagine being forced to undergo chemo-therapy and radiation or

I salute these women and I honor them.  I want them to know that they are everyday heroines because they were able to fight this battle with style, grace and courage.

I would also like to acknowledge the doctors who see these tragedies on a regular basis, stand strong and support their patients through the battle.

I was so excited about the evening.  There was great energy and a feeling of love in the room. My close friends were there and I was so happy to see that all the girls came out.  I would like to thank Dr. Jackie, Dr. Simone, Toya, Lisa Nicole and Dr. Heavenly for always showing their support.  We were able to raise thousands of dollars through the generous contributions of the attendees.

Thank goodness the show had ended and all donations were in before The Boys in the Hood showed up to try to steal the spotlight.  If you pay close attention you can see that it’s always the same story, different characters- “I made him/her relevant” is the mantra.  First it was Toya, then Bryan Lamar, Reco Chapple and now me.  Mariah called herself a “star maker”.  Too bad she couldn’t use those powers to help herself.

I can understand how so many people are upset about the demise of my and Mariah’s friendship but, if they have eyes to see that if she will treat her own flesh and blood, Brian Lamar, like she did, then treating me the same way was easy for her.  She told him that anything he has ever done and anything has ever had was because of her.  Wow, not again! She also said that she could make one phone call and no one would work with him.  She admittedly stopped speaking to her best friend, Reco because he asked me to do a photo shoot when she was unavailable.  She really needs to check her ego!!!

She continues to speak negatively about me.  Constantly planting seeds as to how she helped me or wanted to change me. Disregarding my feelings mocking me. She has been making up lies to try to hide the truth.  I have only spoken the truth.  However, some people love mess and no matter how many facts are presented they are drawn to the flashing lights of #Messyville.

A cancerous cell does not only come in the form of a disease pathology. It can also come in the form a fake friend. Early detection is a must.  When not properly diagnosed it can metastasize which could be fatal in health…and friendship.  The best course of action is usually to cut if off and remove the cancerous cell.

    Yes I agree, cut it off and move forward with your life…all that unnecessary dramatics is not becoming for you at all but hey I guess this reality is made for tv ratings eh?

    At first, I didn’t know if this ‘fight’ between Quad and Mariah was just another exciting drama packed storyline for reality tv – or maybe (which both of these examples are usually par for the course in reality tv land) these two divas became jealous of each other’s rapid rise to fame – thinking one was bypassing the other – etc. – and then maybe began fighting for the number one queen bee spot – WHATEVER – but I mainly figured it was related to an ego problem – which both, I’m sure, would qualify as recipients – but one thing I’m sure of – it was done for the show’s ratings – Also – after watching each episode – reading several articles – listening to radio interviews – etc – it hasn’t been hard to figure out that Miss Mariah has a huge problem with reality – whether the things she is involved in are for show ratings – or for personal gain – one thing is for sure – Miss Mariah believes she is THE STAR – and there’s no more room available in the land of starsville for ANYONE else – whether it be best friends, family, husband, children – EVERYONE is excluded from these honors – and only Mariah deserves (I still haven’t figured out why she thinks this) not just the number one spot – BUT THE ONLY SPOT! For some unknown reason – Mariah doesn’t understand that the land of reality tv is a huge place – with many opportunities – and with more than one number one spot – but evidently, Mariah is a very greedy person or just plain delusional – maybe a mixture of both – but – I can warn her now – she will be her worst enemy – and because she has mental issues which she refuses to address – she will be the one responsible for sinking her own starship! Just listening to Mariah’s double-edged commentary on the show – after just watching her do the complete opposite in the scenes – then – to act innocent – but turn around and give feedback laced with venom – like when she denies saying something – but turns around and makes statements reinforcing what she just denied!!!!! Example: “I didn’t say I made you” – “I guess I’m the star maker” – Mariah evidently thinks viewer’s are dumb enough not to know what she is doing – because she does it by generalizing her comments – acting like she ‘assumes’ that’s what the victim thinks – but in REAL REALITY – what she means is, “You won’t make me look bad in front of the viewer’s by exposing me as the delusional bitch I truly am – or the fact that I do believe I am the queen of this show – and the other cast mates are just peasants who are only here because I put them here and allow them to stay, I will deny, use my children to back me up or get my point across without getting my hands dirty, I will manipulate and intimidate anyone that gets in my way – including the viewer’s – and – while I’m at it – and after I deny everything I need to so that I look innocent, I’ll then turn around and reinforce what I really said or did by making comments that look like I’m only saying what others are saying or believing – BUT YOU KNOW WHAT IM DOING – AND IM DOING IT SO YOU DONT FORGET – I AM QUEEN BEE AND YOU BETTER REMEMBER I’M GOD OF ‘Married to Medicine’ – I did make you”!!!!! Mariah – we the viewer’s see you! The REAL you! You can polish a turd – but it’s still a turd – and turds always do shitty things no matter how much money you put in their pockets! And turds ALWAYS get flushed back to the sewer! But I must say Mariah – you do play one turdy game!

      I absolutely agree with you regarding Mariah, she is definitely delusional, and one very nasty piece of work. And yes, I think she must truly believe that we, the viewers, are vision impaired!! Good grief, Mariah needs a major reality check asap. I wonder what her husband makes of all of this, he seems to be pleasant enough and also seems to want to stay drama free and here she is creating shady drama all over the place. I don’t know how she lays straight in bed at night! Manipulation and intimidation are her profession.
