A little birdy told me… Insatiable, a new show about fat-shaming, was joining the Netflix originals ensemble. At first glance, I didn’t care for it because (sorry) it was another white girl’s tale.

In nearly all of the “circles” I’ve been a part of, which, in my opinion, isn’t many, I’ve known a backhanded compliment whenever served. And being told I was “not that fat” (the title of this blog post) is a prime example of that.…

There’s something really curious… about men and how different types of men vary in response to dating. Growing up in a predominately white neighborhood, a lot of my celebrity crushes encompassed either Jesse McCartney, Nick Jonas or Ryan Cabrera (yeah, I admit to that). But in my mind, I knew early on that the guys who absolutely just wouldn’t (and…
