Rip The Runway 2006

Tonight was a GREAT night to be a FAT (As in Fabulous And Thick Ya'll) Girl!!!! As a matter of fact...it's a great TIME to be a FAT Girl!!! Tonight was the BET taping of "Rip The Runway" a fashion show with live music and hip hop mixed in. The taping was held at The Roseland Ballroom in New York City. It was hosted by LL COOL J and Gabrielle Union. The evening was AWESOME for me and a very big step for me and a whole lot of my home girls. The Show was a mixture of fashion from a Menswear Collection by Steve Harvey (with a live performance by Three 6 Mafia) and Swimwear by Roger Gary (with a live performance with Busta Rhymes) but baby the ABSOLUTE HIGHLIGHT OF THE SHOW was the First EVER Plus Sized Segment on BET with live music provided by Anthony Hamilton, singing his song "Sista Big Bones"...There were three designers in the segment; Courtney Washington, Monif C. & Qrystal Designs...each designer had distinctly different designs with different types of women in their minds. There were about 30 different models of all shapes, sizes, heights & colors. Tocarra kicked off the segment and it was ON after that!! The result was a vibrant rainbow of my beautiful plus size sisters strutting their stuff like beautiful proud peacocks. The crowd went crazy from the moment we hit the stage...you could FEEL the energy in the room change when we took the stage. I am SO very proud of my sisters tonight...Tonight we made history ya'll!!!

A special shout out to my sister/friend TJ...thank you so much for the BET STYLE interview...I won't forget it mama.

Tonight Busta Rhymes finished his sound check and walked off stage and as I was passing, he looked dead at me, walked over and said "hey girl..how you doin?" to which I replied "hey baby..how YOU doing?" because I am sure that I have never met him before in my life (lol) he responds by wrapping his arms around me and giving me this big ass bear hug! He is stroking my back and getting rather comfortable when I whispered in his ear "You don't have a clue as to who I am do you?" and he whispers back "It's okay though, I'm feeling you" he holds on a few seconds longer then says goodbye...leaving me utterly befuddled.

Weird huh?

I also saw an extremely low key Terrell Owens. I also met Melyssa Ford who was very nice and quite beautiful.
