There I was, minding my own business on Twitter, and watching the first GOP debate on FOX News, offering live commentary via my tweets on everything from Donald Trump’s views on immigration and “stupid leaders;” to trying to understand why Dr. Ben Carson is running for president, and not in an operating room; and wondering how many bundles of weave was in moderator Megyn Kelly’s hair. (Because I’m so obsessed with hair, I was really mesmerized by her long, shiny blond hair all night long.)
But, I digress! I was part of the seven million folks engaging socially on Twitter with tweets about “The Donald Trump Show” – I mean, the GOP debate, featuring a bunch of guys who dressed and talked like men on an episode of AMC’s “Mad Men.”
And lo’ and behold, what a treat it was to be feature in a story by “Tea and Breakfast,” as part of its coverage on Black Twitter. I’m so honored to be inducted into this fabulous fraternity of African American social media influencers. Check out the story below.
My lovely colleague, celebrity publicist Dominic Friesen was so kind to share the news with his followers.

In other news, my hair story, “If You Ask Me, I’ll Let You Touch It,” got picked up on a couple of websites, like CurlyNuGrowth.com (Arts & Entertainment section) and the Hair Lovers Digest. I really appreciate the love!
Don’t worry! I’m going to keep on ranting from the red carpet! After all, this wittiness can’t be wasted! 🙂
