The Summer of the Black Lesbian: With Juanita Bynum, Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll, Raven Simone, Latifah and Azealia Banks

Ladies, Gents and Minions,

It seems that we have been quite busy during this hot and very sticky summer of 2012.  Outings – be they voluntary, involuntary – they’ve just sprinkling the media landscape with girl-on-girl, woman-on-woman – action, love, lust call it whatever you like – like fairy dust.  And it’s happening all over, to the young and not as young, not just in that stereotypical Hollywood setting either.  And the Passions can’t help but to be obsessed by all the attention it’s getting.  Yes, everybody, it’s a beautiful thing – chocolate lesbian love in full bloom.  Like Stevie Wonder said, we making it “hotter than the 4th of July,” up in this piece.  Better recognize ;).

So here we go!

First up:  DISNEY.

Raven Symone.

Many of us watched her grow-up (quite nicely) before our very eyes.

The Cosby Show/Disney Starlette set things off the early part of this summer when rumors began to swirl around her alleged relationship with (America’s TOP) model Az Marie Livingston.  These two set tongues a wagging with their not so subtle association. Raven’s subliminal tweets certainly helped to fuel an already raging fire.

Well here’s the infamous, not-so-subliminal pic of them that was circulating.  Ain’t a thang discreet about that photo.  In fact, Raven’s facial expression says it all, doesn’t it :).

Needless to say, somebody has great taste in women ;).

Next: Hollyhood.

As most of us know, summer means GAY PRIDE celebrations.  And Passions favorite Dana Owens, a.k.a. Queen Latifah represented.  We swear every year there is a Latifah is “coming out” story.  It NEVER fails and it NEVER seems to materialize.  But, we’re okay with that.  She doesn’t have to come out officially. Because, we here at the Passions loves the way La rolls.  Do you, Queen.

During the Pride celebration in mid-May in Long Beach, Cali, the Queen performed hits “U.N.I.T.Y” and “Ladies First,” to an enthusiastic crowd of over 100,000 indicating she was proud to be among “her people.”  Whether or not this is a declaration, the Passions can’t say.  We just think some things speak for themselves and we’ll leave it at that.

Next: Religion.

Yes, Lord we’re going to church.  The BLACK church.  Anybody remember Pentecostal Prophetess and Televangelist Juanita Bynum?

She’s the chocolate cutie who was brutally beaten by then (second) husband, Bishop Thomas Wesley Weeks back in 2007.  We didn’t know she was also a victim of domestic violence in her first marriage back in the eighties.  Now, those are some ugly and unfortunate details.

Would you like some “prettier details?”  Well, late this week Bynum came out swinging by admitting to having same-sex relations.  In other words, to quote Bynum she says she’s “been with women.”   Whew, that’s a HELL of a confession, excuse my French.  Now, where that gay church at again?

Next up:  Politics.

Who knew Florida had a black, female, Republican Lieutenant Governor?  The Passions didn’t know. That shit was seriously “hushed,” wasn’t it?  Well, meet Jennifer Carroll.

Now, I want all of you Passion followers to dig deep on this one.  Does she look like a lesbian to you?  Well she doesn’t think so but more on that later.  So the story goes, apparently an ex-aid of the Lt. Governor, one Carletha Cole was arrested after she illegally taped conversations Carroll’s staff had with some reporter.  Not cool, right?  Well, Cole could get five years for her trouble.  But this is where it gets interesting.  Apparently Cole was fired after she caught her boss, the Lt. Governor in a compromising position with Carroll’s travel aide one Beatriz Ramos.  Yes, chile.

Wanna see a pic of Ramos? Well, look below, there she is, kind of smirking, behind the Lt. Governor.

Now of course, the Passions wasn’t satisfied with the “compromising position” accusation.  We wanted the real dirt.  We wanted the juicy DETAILS.  And did we ever find it, and quote

(Cole) walked into the Lt. Governors Jennifer Carroll’s office and observed the Lt. Governor sitting at her desk with her foot up on the cadenza and her skirt hiked up. Beatrice Ramos was kneeling in front of Carroll, poised as if she (Ramos) was about to or had performed oral sex on the Lt. Governor.

Nothing like some tasty, sweet tea on a wet, hot Friday afternoon.  Thirst quenching, isn’t it?  So, back to that delicious quote earlier, Honeys – this is what Carroll had to say about the whole thing.

“The problem is that when you have these accusations that come out, it’s not just one person you’re attacking. It’s an entire family. My husband doesn’t want to hear that. He knows the type of woman I am. I mean, my kids know the type of woman I am. For twenty-nine years – I’m the one that’s married for twenty-nine years. The accuser is the one that’s been single for a long time. So usually black women that look like me don’t engage in relationships like that. Oh REALLY???  Thou doth protest too much???  With her leg up getting serviced by her aide – me thinks that must have looked hella hot!!!  So the answer is Yes, Lt. Governor, women who look like you, black women, actually love getting fucked by other women and actively engage in relationships like that. You have validated it for the entire universe and we thank you for it.  And, speaking about somebody’s cunt getting eaten…

Next: Hip-Hop.

Azealia Banks.

If you haven’t already, remember you heard about her here first.  Now the Passions fucks with hip-hop every now and then.  And when I heard “212” by young, new and very female friendly Azealia Banks, well, I made a bit of a return to the musical art form.  Why?  With lyrics like hers? Why not?

Kick it with ya bitch from Parisian

She know where I get mine from, and the season

Now she wanna lick my plum in the evening

and fit that ton-tongue in the d-deep in

I guess that cunt getting eaten

Yes, she did.

In an interview for the New York Times, it states clearly, “Ms. Banks considers herself bisexual, but, she said: ‘I’m not trying to be, like, the bisexual, lesbian rapper. I don’t live on other people’s terms.'”  We like that kind of independence, especially coming from a generation that boldly and intentionally defies labels while embracing their sexuality (ambiguously and otherwise) so that closets can remain what they were meant for – clothes, Honey.

Here’s Azealia’s vid that got me hooked on this little cutie!

And another, Liquorice.

The lesson here is, EMBRACE your sexiness, Ladies.  Don’t deny or defy it.

Happy Summer, Darlings :).


A May Morning Mega Post: With Janet, Kerry, Amber and others, plus Rihanna Making it RAIN


Missing you ALL!!!

To make up for the distance, here’s a May Mega with some of the ‘usual’ Passion Crush Favorites.

What better way to start things off then with Miss Jackson, giving us fierce body after her stint with Nutrisystem.  Just staring at her makes me want to get on the system even though I don’t think I really need it.  That’s what I call MARKETING!!!!


Christina Milian is looking nice on and in Denim’s Spring Issue rocking the color block fad.


Kerry Washington’s “Scandal” is doing big things.  It could not have happened to a more accomplished, more talented, more HOTTER actress.

Keri Hilson was in Mozambique to perform for the big “Diva’s Show.”  She tweeted these pics to her fans and all we can say is “niiiiiiiiice….”

Brandy and Monica on the cover of Ebony.  Nice to see all three, Brandy, Monica and Ebony Magazine still pressing on.




Speaking of pushing, did you know that Nicki Minaj is pushing Pepsi?  Not a bad gig at all.  Think she needs a new stylist tho?

Paula Patton in People Magazine’s Most Beautiful issue sans make up.

Here’s Grace Jones performing @ AmFar.

Just looking AMAZING in her sixth decade.  WERK, gottdamnit!!!!

Amber Rose did an amazing spread for Lifestyle Mirror Magazine.  She is looking straight FABULOUS here.

From the setting, her fit, how she’s styled and even her manicure – just, BRAVO.

And last but certainly not least, our baby girl crush Miss Rihanna in New York City.


I’m sure you’ve seen, if not at least heard about her stripper pics.  Rih was at a strip joint in Queens and she tweeted these lovely gems to the people.   Had to be too many things going on up in there that night.

Yes Ladies, she is indeed a straight up “G.”


KERRY WASHINGTON Hits the sweet spot in Scandal

Well Darlings,

We’re back.  And the main source of this inspiration is – Miss Kerry Washington in her role as Olivia Pope of Olivia Pope and Associates in the ABC premiere “Scandal” which set off serious fire alarms on millions of flat screens last night.

Kerry plays Pope a “fixer” deliciously navigating her staff of  ‘gladiator in suits’ through the nuanced world of Washington D.C. insiders.

Now the Passions isn’t only crushing hard on the obviously talented and incredibly sexy Kerry Washington.  You Passion followers in the know – know how we feel about the gorgeous Miss Washington.  And we all agree, Kerry KILLED it last night.  But let’s spread the love here.  Grey’s Anatomy Shonda Rhimes is the creative genius behind Scandal.  And props to her are definitely in order.

Shonda showed us that as a black woman in Hollywood, not only do you have to be a GREAT writer to get any play but you have to be MUCH BETTER THAN THE REST to even sit at the table.  Real talk, Ladies (& gents).  And she served it with “Grey’s Anatomy” (and with Private Practice too). But this time Shonda took a huge risk writing and developing a show starring a black woman.  Do you believe its been thirty years since a black woman starred in her own television series?  Yes it is 2012.  A little jarring and extremely sinful, isn’t it ? Anyway, so Shonda, an incredibly talented black woman writer, wrote a phenomenal script starring an incredibly talented black actress, Kerry Washington, with a storyline actually based on an incredibly successful black woman, former White House Press Agent Judy Smith who runs her own DC based crisis management firm Smith & Co.  Smith’s impressive background before becoming a “fixer” handling such high-profile cases as Monica Lewinsky, the BP Oil spill and Michael Vicks was as Deputy Press secretary under the George W. Bush administration.  This is some serious content here folks, wouldn’t you say?

So, the Passions is obviously in heaven with this lovely blend of black female beauty, power and brains – a combination that is never given enough attention and respect as far as we’re concerned.  So here we are, giving it life and love.  And, of course we have to give you a pictorial of Lady Washington to end things neatly here.  Passion crushes forever, Darlings!!!

@ the 2011 New York Film Critics Circle Awards.

Here she is promoting Scandal on 106 and Park.  I don’t know about those kids but I find Kerry’s leather skirt and her damn legs positively mesmerizing.

SMDH…..Just, beautiful……

So, peep SCANDAL on ABC on Thursday Nights.  Kerry will be bringing the heat, the drama and a killer wardrobe to match.


Viola Davis covers L.A. Times Magazine

Good Evening Sexy People,

Now the Passions is feeling some kind of way about that film The Help, Viola Davis and her nomination for an Oscar.

However, when I saw her cover on L.A. Times Magazine, I was forced to forgive everything because she looked so deliciously fierce and positively GORGEOUS, and just TASTY.  Take a peek at a natural sister.

WERK, Gottdamnit.  (check the shoe game, PROPER!!!)

Giving FACE (and dreamy, creamy lips…..).


Rihanna goes BLONDE (and exchanges some wicked tweets w/Evelyn from Basketball Wives)

Good Morning my little Popsicles,

Feeling a little chilly maybe?  The Passions prefers the heat.  And the hotter, the better.  Speaking of hot, have you seen Rihanna the Hottie’s new look?  Child’s gone blonde now.  Blonde Ambition?  Do blondes have more fun (like baby girl really needs more fun already being an international pop star) – it all doesn’t really matter  – what does matter is that she looks friggin sexy as hell.  The Passions approves.


Here she is at the Clippers game.  Imma need to have those boots, Rih-Rih.  I’m serious.  I’ll wrestle you for them, preferably in a tub of mud ;).

I’ll take the Fendi bag too.

Here she’s leaving The Roxbury Nightclub in L.A. after the game.  Now we see what was going on underneath that cream color sweater.  The whole look, the top, the shorts, the hair, that BODY, the tats, the whole (visual) package is just FLY.  Rihanna, dem boots – do we snatch them or do we knock em?  What say you, Passion Lovers :).

And about those tweets?  Like you didn’t think this would pop-up on the Passions’s radar?  Naturally it’s all about the girl-on-girl action here so act like you know ;).  And that is exactly was what was embedded in these tweets, honeys.

MAJOR DAMNNN…..Nobody is even hiding ISH here!  But when you think about it, is Evelyn really down for the cake?  Or is she down for the cheddar?  Evelyn kicking Ocho 2 the curb for some Rih-Rih?  The Passions wanna be a fly on the wall for this here.  As a matter of fact, this makes the alleged rumors between Eve and Jennifer and what really went down between those two in Vegas last season even stronger.  Imagine that, celebs hooking up thru Twitter (real or fake) right before our very eyes.  Girl action is in full effect and We LOVE it!!!!


The Passion’s End-of-Week Round Up with Kerry, Sanaa, Ashanti, WHITNEY and more!!!

My Passion Lovers,

I hope you’re not over the Mega-posts because I’ve kinda fallen in love with them.  I figure it’s much nicer to overwhelm you with chocolatey shades of beauty instead of spacing it all out in mini-posts.

I have to start things off with Kerry again.  Kerry Washington is ‘up there’ on the Passion favorite list.  And this list is not as long as you think.  Also because she is one of those rare celebrities I happened to have met in person and trust me not only is she better in person, but yes, this one talks the talk AND walks the walk – if you know what I mean.  Lady is NO slouch.  Anyway, when I ran across this shot of her in the current issue of Details, honey, the tingly sensation that vibrated through me resonated longer than it should.  Now tell me this photo ain’t move you just a lil bit?  🙂

Gott-damn, Kerry……

Next, another Passion fav, Sanaa Lathan at a Golden Globe party.  Just an amazing beauty.

Have you heard Miss Thing is repping for Pantene?

Talk about a ‘good look.’

Have you noticed Ashanti putting an appearance here and there on the Passions, lately?  There must be a reason for it, hmmm?  Here she is at Jay-Z’s 40-40 club opening.  I shall remain speechless on that ‘buzz’ mostly because we don’t care.  But don’t she look good?  Honey is wearing that dress.

Guess what?  Going to a Knick game is in fashion!!!  Here’s Lala and CiCi showing us all why ;)!

Ciara, I really need those boots in my life.  I’ll take the bag, too.  Wait, how bout you get in the bag and I take the entire package :).  Just joking.

Who else was at the game?  Why Jessica White and her girl pal, Irina Shayk.

Boots for Days!  YAY!

Speaking of boots – here’s Amber Rose in the N.Y.C. rocking her battle gear.  Yep, she’s allegedly got a single soon to be released.  Hmmm.

Sometimes when we see Amber we’re trying to figure out whether we want to receive a hickey from her or just give her one.

For those interested on the ID on the boot, Alexander McQueen.  I need those 2.

Here’s a twit pic of Amber and Monica.  Sweet.

Now over to the west coast – Here’s Mary J on her way to a dinner double date with her hubby along with Tamar Braxton and her spouse.

See, mixing business and pleasure can be clean in Hollyhood folks.

Meagan Good at LAX.

The Passions always had a soft spot for baby-girl.  (the SKIN>>>)  She was hawt in “Jumping the Broom.”  Go check that if you haven’t already.

And the Passion’s other baby girl, Rihanna, vacationing in Hawaii.  Must be nice, wild-child.

Moving even farther West, is Serena practicing in Melbourne.  Yay!

No matter what they say, the Williams Sisters STILL run World Tennis.  They are the one’s to beat and they own the crowns to snatch.  Period.  The End.

And last but far from least, here are some pics of Whitney on the set of “Sparkle.”  Just, Wow!!!  The Passions can’t WAIT for this flick to be released!!!  We gotta support this effort!!!


Memorial Day Weekend – Halle Shutting The Passions Down!!!

Hey Beauties,

The holiday weekend is here and the weather will be a lot like we are around here – Hot and Sexy.  Enjoy it.

Here are some recent pics of Halle doing what she loves, shopping, attending some function and hanging out with her guy pal.    I don’t know about you but she always puts a smile on my face 😉


Okay – tell me THIS ain’t swagger.
