But some of y'all ain't scored a point. 

In this episode, Major and Lise talk the tragic death of Kenneka Jenkins, Tyrese reverts back to the ashy-ness we know, Nasir and Nicki cute New Yorkness, Bow Wow's take on relationships and Kevin Hart being a target in the Bold and the Baeless, Alexis Jr., is adorable in Baby News, Kyrie is unbothered, Jemele is unbossed and Sloane is unbrought (but securing bags) in Balls and All, Must-See TV has us loving the Emmys (mostly...Sean Spicer excluded), more Virgo birthdays, Rihanna had the best week ever, and much more. 

For Let's Talk About It Sis, the ladies breakdown a good formula for shooting your shot...and apparently you need to be a NASA scientist to get it right with them. 

A certain university president who doesn't know that the touch and feel of cotton was the fabric of enslaved lives burned Major's biscuits. An update on Hellboy and a special girl are in the Geek Corner. Last, a woman with wings is the GRITS We Love.

This is FUBU! 

In this episode, Major is joined by the fabulous @meghann_monroe to talk the tragedy in Charlottesville and Barcelona, a former child of destiny has a way of getting diamonds in the Bold and (the not so) Baeless, Robin Thicke and Paula Patton 2.0 are expecting, ESPN did a mock slave auction while the Blacks were away, a woman of Brewster Place is aging like fine wine, Brandy vying Keke's Crown of Draining, Kim continues her family tradition of showing that Black-adjacent means absolutely nothing, and much more. 

For Let's Talk About It Sis, Meghann, who has more social media followers than small countries have citizens, schools us on differentiating yourself, using social media as a tool to do so, and why she's willing to give million dollar game for $Free.99. 

The St. Patricks are unlucky charms who burn Meghann's biscuits, Major's GRITS We Love is a feminist professor from the land of golden sunshine, while Meghann's brings us to tears (but also gets us together). Last, a panel of experts handing out jewels and dropping bars gets a Love Offering.

The ladies bask in the afterglow of Beyonce. In this episode, Major and Lise talk about the upcoming Michel'le movie, Chyna keeping folk out her man's phone, Mary tired of y'all crap, how not to propose to either of them, clowns catching hands, fighting the troll within, reseating yourself at the table, and the majesty that was the Formation Tour in Nashville. Plus, Robin Roberts and two special Texas girls are the GRITS we love, and Lise reads someone their constitutional rights.
