On what began to unravel Mariah’s friendship with Quad:

“She felt like they made her look like my do-girl or my puppet and she felt like she was a little bit subservient and she didn’t like that. Instead of realizing that I didn’t control that, I feel as though she took it out on me…we bumped heads on that. So she started treating me a certain way and I made the comment to her then she said something about–I was mad because she was more famous then me.

As the creator of ‘Married to Medicine’, what she initially envisioned for the show:

InInitially, I envisioned a group of women that were either married to medicine in terms of their career or married to someone that was a medical doctor. Coming together and being cohesive, talking about their struggles and their sacrifices and you know, you always have drama when there is a group of women together but I just thought it would be just a little more comradery probably.

 syleena-johnson-addresses-porsha-williams-stealing-song-the-jasmine-brand

*”Real Housewives of Atlanta“  star Porsha Williams is involved with new drama, off-camera, that has nothing to do with being a house wife.

The drama surrounds reports that she allegedly stole a song called ‘Perfectly Worthless‘, from producer Pierre Medor and “R&B Divas” singer, Syleena Johnson.

After hearing reports, media partner theJasmineBRAND.com spoke with Syleena exclusively, asking for her thoughts on the matter.

theJasmineBRAND.com: Were you surprised at all that Porsha allegedly took ‘Perfectly Worthless’, a song that you have on your new album?
Syleena: I was surprised to hear the song on her show. I am/was confused maybe, but not really anything else.

theJasmineBRAND.com: Are you concerned at all that the single will lose momentum because of Porsha’s version?
Syleena: I am not concerned about the momentum because it is a great song. Great songs will break thru. The people will make the call.

Omarosa & Mary Mary’s Goo Goo Debate On Christians Doing Reality TV

goo goo-omarosa-christians reality tv-the jasmine brand

It’s no secret, secular folk aren’t the only ones ‘winning’ in the reality TV game. With the help of shows like Preachers of LA‘ and ‘The Sisterhood’ and ‘The Sheards’, Christians seem to be carving out their own lane with non-scripted TV.

Media partner theJasmineBRAND.com recently chatted with two very opinionated reality TV stars who have done their share of both filming reality TV – Omarosa and celebrity stylist Goo Goo (sister to Erica and Tina Campbell who stars on We TV’s Mary Mary) weigh in on whether Christian’s should do reality TV.

If they agree on how faith-bashed shows like Preachers of LA should portray the church world on television:

Omarosa: If anytime you can get people talking about the church, reflecting about religion, reflecting about their relationships with God, what’s appropriate and what we’re not appropriate than we’re winning….So this is a vehicle to introducing, reintroducing people and encouraging people to be apart of the kingdom.

Goo Goo: You know, I tell the truth right? I think  they be wilding out on the show and people are entitled to do what they want to do and you never how they’re going to edit the show but some of the stuff I wish they kind of would conceal. Because it’s kind of one of those things that its like, that’s family business. We all know that we have ups and downs like that fight I almost got into last week, I wouldn’t put that on TV.
