Or is it? 

In this episode, Major and Lise are back after homecoming almost took them down to talk Shaq getting on one knee, Kevin Hart wants to be paid for his pain, Chance's daughter has grammys to count, Balls and All includes Lebron's snack-ish GQ cover, Marshawn is a national treasure, two MVPs can't take the Grit or Grind, Jemele is back on the scene with the gangster lean, Pop uses his privilege for good and much more, The Mane Event was Must-See TV, a Love and Hip Hop star needs all the lotion, throwing out the whole Shad Moss, Gabrielle Union preaching the sexual reciprocity gospel, Selena finally gets a star and so much more. 

For Let's Talk About It Sis, the ladies dig deep and talk the #MeToo social media moment, the impact of sharing (or not sharing) your pain publicly, and the spectrums of behavior that make pervasive sexual harassment possible. 

A certain female rapper gets on every nerve in Major's neck and back, and Lise wants y'all to put some respect on Light Skin Aunt Viv's name in Burns My Biscuits. The 100th episode of The Walking Dead and a trailer filled with beautiful Blackness are in the Geek Corner. A woman from Miami-Dade with bedazzled cowboy hats might be about that life and is the GRITS We Love.

Get Geeked! It's Homecoming Week! 

In our 50th episode, Major and Lise talk first lady drama and Jhene making a Big (and permanent) statement on love, Balls and All is chalked full of news from Cam's sexism, Shannon's cigar celebration, Jerry Jones reversing on bending the knee and Jemele's suspension, Bob Corker's clapback game is strong, Blackish taught us about slavery, Bonnie and Clyde remind us We Gettin' Old, Tyrese needs a check (not social media), Nelly is a creep, Nene is deplorable, Wendy can save her tears after victim-shaming sexual assault victims, does Dove actually need lotion, lemon pepper wings brings out Black Hollywood in Atlanta, and much more. 

For Let's Talk About It Sis, the ladies are joined by Kayla Smith (@_killak), the reigning 88th Miss Tennessee State University to talk what it is like to be a HBCU student now, how she's redefining the queen role, and why homecoming is much more than just the parties. 

We also feature our Homecoming agenda. One event we want to highlight is High Society BOTTOMLESS Brunch on Sunday, October 15, 2017 from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. @Abrasive Media. Register for the event at www.highsocietybrunch.eventbrite.com

When you feel you've done 'bout as best you can. 

In this episode, Major and Lise talk the passing of a certain playboy, a leader of heartbreakers and what happened in Vegas, Bold and Baeless sees a new superhero emerge, a lion-king themed shower for the Harts and what Lemon is sweet on, more Kardashian baby news, Serena's snapback and OGs of the reality shows welcome a son in Baby News, Balls and All includes the NBA wanting to see if fat meat greasy, the Juice is loose, Beast Mode is dressed for the movement, a Spur popped off and a different kind of Black Panther, Politikin' involves Agent Orange's favorite thing: a woman who ain't scared to speak truth to power, Jay-Z on SNL, Mariah actually was bothered, the culture stepping up for Puerto Rico, and much more. 

For Let's Talk About It Sis, the ladies talk detaching from relationships as a form of self-care and how ending anything matters. 

A claim to the HBCU experience from a PWI student burns Lise's biscuits beyond recognition, and a young author telling HERstory is both our Love Offering and the GRITS We Love.
