It's our year end review! Auld lang sigh! 

In this last episode for 2016, Major and Lise talk all the Kardashian drama, police shooting proposal, Queen Bey continuing to gather all the things, Blue out-divas her mom and the iconic Mariah, young Ms. Willow is slaying each and every scene, why we don't deserve Gucci Mane, Chance's playlist for bubble time, Obama news, and the diversity within the diversity of this year's Gloden Globes and NAACP Image nominations. For Let's Talk About It Sis, the ladies reflect on the buttered and ashy moments of 2016 and their hopes for 2017. Plus, y'all so cool in your shirts, Lise breaks down why the force should be with you, and a woman who taught us that purple was more than a color is the GRITS we love.

This week Major and Lise talk the Soul Train Awards, the death of Fidel Castro and its complications (for some), a lovely lady was lost, Gucci got a return on his investment and Keyshia needs a decoy, Xenophobia is the word of the year, and the Obama nephews are the cutest thing ever. For Let's Talk About It Sis, the ladies talk about whether home is really where the heart is. Major's biscuits are burned by y'all underestimating your granny's hands. Lise offers a love offering to a real queen. And woman-preneurs are the GRITS we love.

Really good music gets our love offering, Lise sits at the intersection of comic book and band geekdom in this week's Geek Corner, and one special Memphian girl is hardly home but always repping as the GRITS We Love.
