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 :).


Monday Morning Mega Post Madness Chocolate Overdose with Taraji, Kerry, A. Keys, Kelly, Mary J and MORE

Well Good Morning my little Snuggle Bunnies,

So the Passions is going to set the week off with a Mega Post of Chocolate Crushes.  It’s been a minute so let’s get this party started.


First, let’s go to New York City.  Such the philanthropist, last week, Alicia Keys and friends were in attendance at the 8th Annual “Keep A Child Alive,” event.  Of course the Black Star Power was in full, positive effect.

Them shoes, Alicia!  Gotta have a shoe game.

Keys is looking right.

Kerry Washington is a Socialite!  Cute cocktail dress, girl.

Lala Vasquez.  Pretty lady.  Any comments on her head gear? I don’t think she needed it.

La looks Fabulous!!!  Work that chapeau, gottdamnit.

Looking so so classy.  We know you want to tune in to Miss Thing’s talk show next year!!!  The Passions is excited for Latifah!!!  Again, she is the model of how one must pursue Hollywood successfully, flawlessly – closet or not.  Take them notes, Ladies.

Another New York City event was the “L’Oreal Legends Gala for Ovarian Cancer Research.”  Kerry Washington?  Present.  And looking tre-glam as per usual.

Ok.  So what’s right about this?  Her hair?  Check.  Her make-up?  Check.  Ms. Thing is giving crazy bone structure!!! BTW – The Passions would like to personally thank Kerry for the game proper back shot.

Taraji was at the “Legends Gala,” too.  She is tantalizing in teal.

Oh my, Taraji (clutching pearls) you are killing the back shot, too?  Too many things !!!!  Is black beautiful?

Taraji is a natural.

Michael Michelle was repping, all sleek, slender and blonde.

Say what you want, but obviously this chica’s got killer swagger.  I’m not mad at her either.

Nice!  Two of the most powerfully talented and beautiful actresses in Hollywood.  Both are pulsating with Oscar winning potential.  Just pulsating.

Looking at these shots, don’t you wish you were at the Gala?  I know I do 🙂

Amber Rose was doing promos for Smirnoff  “Master of the Mix.”

Nice glasses, Amb.

The Passions likes that she’s growing her hair out.  Not sure if she should let it get any longer tho.

Now over to the beast coast, here’s my baby’s Momma’s big sis leaving Boa Steakhouse in L.A.  Werk that bag and the gloves, Miss Thing, looking all fabulous at 60+.

That body is NOT quitting.  She is putting a hurting on that lil black dress.

Now tell me who looks this damn good at LaToya’s age?  Seriously.  The Passions is quite fond of LaToya Jackson.

Now THIS is the definition of Ab-Fab.  We’re still checking for Eddie’s x-wife.

Yes, this woman popped out FIVE kids out of THAT body.  Not bad, eh?

Nicole Murphy, Fitness Shero.

Here’s lil Miss Rihanna in her “Talk that Talk,” promo shots.

Such a naughty girl 😉

And across the Pond, Kelly Rowland at the “Cosmopolitan Woman of the Year Awards,” in London.

Mary J. taping at BBC Radio One in the U.K. looking very luscious.

Mary’s swag is so sophisticated.  Momma is looking HOT lately.


Monday Morning Madness: Random Acts of Chocolate in July w/Janet, Kelly, Latifah, Ciara, Rihanna & More

Good Morning Darlings,

I hope your weekend was as hot as mine 🙂

Today, the Passions gives you Random Acts of Chocolate to get your week started.  Enjoy.


First up, the one, the only, Ms. Janet Jackson finishing up the European leg of her tour.  Fabulous as always, here she moves through the airport in Barcelona with entourage in tow.  Are you hiring, Miss Jackson, because I would sure as hell would work with you, for you, under you?  For free.  Seriously.  I mean it.  Holler @ your girl.

Here’s Kelly Rowland doing her X Factor thing.  Miss Thing can seriously work a look.

Chili doing her Atlanta society thing.

Rihanna and her adorably mischievous self.  The Passions thinks she is such a cutie (apologies to those who think otherwise 😉 )

Anyone Bronx-affiliated gets my love always.  So here’s hot-ass Evelyn from Basketball Wives with her pretty daughter celebrating Lil Kim’s bday.

Latifah at a Dolce & Gabanna event.  Nice to see her out and about.  I friggin LOVE her hustle.  You out already Honey as far as I’m concerned.  Been out.  F ’em.  We don’t call you Queen for nothing.

And last but certainly not least, is Ciara.  Just spectacular.  Promoting Malibu.  Nice gig I would say.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and Ciara couldn’t make it any more obvious being all up on Janet’s business.  But the Passions likes it.  Imitation Yes, but I’m not mad (that is, if Janet’s not).


VH-1 Single Ladies with Stacey Dash and Lisa Raye: Ready for some DRAMA?

It’s tea-time Darlings,

Are you ready for SINGLE LADIES on VH-1 which airs on Mondays beginning May 30th?  Well, you should be and let the Passions tell you why.

First of all, it is being coined as the Black SEX IN THE CITY.  Second of all – Passion Crush favorite Stacey Dash and Miss Lisa Raye are starring in this visually tantalizing piece of television genius.  Thirdly, with the Queen, yes, Queen Latifah as Executive Producer – we know this will be a series not to miss – because she was quite successful with LIVING SINGLE (in which most of you know the series FRIENDS liberally ripped off) But also, since the Queen is running things with this bevy of deliciousness surrounding her, Honey, you KNOW things will be fiery up on that set.

In fact, the rumor mill has been going into overdrive already with whispers that Stacey and Lisa got in a scuffle – someone allegedly dragged someone else by the hair plus someone allegedly ran off the set screaming about having some bitches’ ass kicked. Can you say DRAMA on top of DRAMA?   Well Passionistas – it’s gets better as a source indicates that the reasons these gorgeous ladies (which – by the way – we wouldn’t mind watching them mud wrestle – or something else decidedly nasty like that) – are actually fighting for the attention (and affections) of the very wealthy and powerful Executive Producer. [Okay – so, you’re not entirely shocked, right?]  Queen – you better WERK!!!  We here at the Passions are not mad at that pink, velvety couch in your executive orifices – oops – offices.  ;). So, is Latifah the Queen or the Motherfucken KING???  You Passion Lovers know the answer to that one.

Expect to see LOT’s of body shots.

Don’t they look cozy?

Body Language here is off the chain.  Can we get a translation please?

Passions missed this invite.

Who would YOU choose for a red light special?  Stacey?

or Lisa Raye?


Famous Friday: Queen Latifah comes OUT again????

Good Morning My Lovely Ladies,

Come on Everybody, hum it with me everybody…”ooh, Ladies First, Ladies First.”

If you haven’t seen these pics already, of course you know the Passions would have them right here.

So, as I’ve told you, the Queen was holding court front and center at Alicia Keys wedding festivities off the Amalfi coast.  We all know what’s really real with that wedding but when these pics surfaced on the web, we wondered if the nuptials and the overturning of Prop 8 had anything to do with Latifah REALLY cuddling up close and personal-like smooching with her boo in full view of somebody’s camera.  Now if this ain’t a coming out party I don’t know what is.  You gotta wonder what Latifah and Keys are key-keying about as they luxuriate lesbianonically as they take in the breathtaking Mediterranean.  Oooh to be the fly on the wall on that yacht.

Must be nice being them.  :).  Come on out girls!  The weather keeps getting better and better ;).
