Insightful on all fronts.

We’re still all sorts of buzzed to see the group back together and truly feel this will serve as the precursor to a ‘Girlfriends’…something. Be that a movie? Revival series.

    Tony, be honest. You got the big head. The audience started loving you more than Traci, who became jealous of your growing fans. You got the big head but forgot that you were a black girl with dark skin; therefore, your chances of success were limited.
