Charmaine Johnise from VH1’s Black Ink Crew: Chicago Launches New Apron Line

Growing up as the only child has made Charmaine Johnise a little bit spoiled, the VH1 reality star admits in an exclusive interview on Starrdom100 Radio. But she is no stranger to hard work and creates her own opportunities.

What many didn’t know is that she is more than just a reality TV figure, as Johnise is a graduate of Howard University, host of an iHeart radio show, and has recently launched her own Apron Line. Due to the negative portrayal black women oftentimes get in the reality show business, the 28-year-old has garnered much praise for being a positive voice for women of color.

Johnise, who is set for the new season of Black Ink Crew: Chicago, gives a little insight into what will take place on the next show, and talks more about her entrepreneurial endeavors in an exclusive interview on Starrdom100 Radio.

What can we expect on Season 5 of Black Ink Crew: Chicago?

“If you thought Season 4 was crazy. Just wait until Season 5, like you really haven’t seen anything yet. It gets even crazier. But the good thing is that we all join forces back together again, like at some point. So, you know, we are trying to make things work out, you know as a unit with the people that started this. Just remembering like who 9 Mag is and why it started and what it was built on… and you know the teamwork and the efforts; we’re going back to that. But honey the drama…we wouldn’t be number one without drama. Let’s just say that so, you know reality TV is the new soap opera. So just be tuning in every Wednesday. We air in January 2019, I don’t know the exact date yet, but be ready for that!”

 Going into this new season, what can you say you’ve learned about yourself from last season?

“Something I’ve learned probably is that I’m a little spoiled (laughing) but you know, I’m the only child, and you know how that goes. Something that’s different is I’m just stepping up like in every way. Like people are going to take me serious this season. I’m not going to say hey guys take me serious and they’re laughing behind my back like, you know, you need to get with the program or we don’t have to do this. Other than that, you know, I’ve been taking some boxing classes! (Laughing)  I’m always bringing the best of the best of myself to the TV. So, you know just definitely look out for that for sure.”

You have a new Apron Line out, Tell me about that.

“Yes, I created them myself as far as like the ideas and everything behind it. And yes, it’s really cute stuff like something for everybody. I got aprons for men and women. Some of the aprons say “Wakanda Food You Like”, “Real Men Get Down In The Kitchen”, “Chop It Like It’s Hot” and more. So everybody can get those at http://www.allthingsCharmaine.com. I also have an App coming out that’s going to showcase a lot of my life and cooking videos. That’s going to be released in a few months. I’m focusing on a lot of holiday foods because I’m going to put out a holiday like cookbook as well soon.”

 You recently shared your thoughts about how black women are betrayed on reality TV. What are your thoughts on that?

“So basically it’s crazy because I think women in general are kind of portrayed in a crazy light on Reality TV period! I just think women in general are expected to…you know, do the most on TV, whereas men can kind of fall in the background. Women are expected to bring all the messy and all the gossip. I do think that you know, with black woman unfortunately, they look to us for the ratchet and that ghetto turn up. How they’re portrayed is crazy, but we’re also giving that to them too. So we can’t even blame TV because if that’s the case, black women would have been stepped up to the plate. So I just think you know at the end of the day get your coin sis because I have my own reality TV situation. I haven’t handled everything perfect. And you know, sometimes I was in situations as well, but on the other end, you know, when you think about it… think about the footprint maternally for our kids and everything is not necessarily something that you know, you can be proud of all of your actions on TV. But hey, if you’re living in your true life and if that is true, you live life with no regrets and if that is truly yourself then that’s a whole different story.

Darrin Dewitt Henson initially rose to fame as one of the most notable characters on Showtime’s television series, Soul Food. Henson’s critically acclaimed portrayal of ex-convict-turned-businessman, Lem Van Adams, demonstrated his ability to connect deeply with urban audiences.

His work on Soul Food earned him subsequent roles in popular urban films Stomp the Yard and Life Support.  He has also had key roles ABC’s television series Lincoln Heights and more recently, the hit dramas, VH1’s  Single Ladies and BET’s Being Mary Jane. Take a look below at what he shared on Starrdom100 Radio!

Tanisha Davis: “So I’m excited about this new TV series, can you tell me a little bit more about it?”

Darrin D. Henson: “Sure, “The Family Business” which airs on BET at 9 pm on Tuesdays is about the Duncan’s family, an exotic car business-owning family, successful black family in NYC who is in the business of cars and other businesses, and as you know in business where there is success there is also jealousy. So there is jealousy within the family, outside of the family, and there is war going on with different cartels you know, but the Duncan family is the new family on the block to watch out for.”

Darrin explained how there are obstacles that come in the world of business and being successful in the family.  So with the Duncan family there is a lot of trouble within the family and outside of the family.

Now let’s get to know the character he plays!

Tanisha: So you play Orlando Duncan, can you tell me a little about your character?

Darrin: “Orlando is next in line to run the family business. The first episode shows that he is going to be the recipient of the business from his father and again it raises eyebrows and makes other family members jealous, you know, LC  Duncan has had a long-standing relationship with the  exotic car business as well as the narcotic business so, its raising jealousy within the family itself.”

Tanisha“This sounds kind of like a mafia-style family”

Darrin: “This family is not to be messed with!”

We can tell this new series is going to keep you entertained and questioning what’s going to happen next.

Tanisha: What drew you to this project because I know its based on Carl Weber’s book so what made you want to be apart of it?

Darrin: Well, I worked with Tri Destined who is the producing company behind the film, many many times, I also worked with Carl Weber many times, so reading the books working with Carl and working with Tri Destined, then reading about this particular show and seeing that its so well developed, and the characters are well developed…who wouldn’t want to play Orlando Duncan?! Its an opportunity to do great work and tell great stories.”

Darrin then explains how the cast is the best part about going into work every day because there is a great group of people to work along side of.

Tanisha: How would you describe the Duncan family?

Darrin: The Duncan’s family is not to be played with,  Sean Ringgold who plays my big bro…plays the enforcer. He is literally ready to smash heads, you can see in the first  episode that’s what we did, we smashed heads.’

Tanisha: Whats the relationship behind scenes with the cast, are you guys having a lot of fun?

Darrin: We are literally like family there’s no question that its a family.

Tanisha: Out of all of the characters that you have played in other movies, what do you like most about this character?

Darrin: Orlando is the real deal, he’s smart, strategic, he loves his family, he’s an entrepreneur and he’s ready for more, he’s a well-developed character with human flaws which is great because we can see how he unfolds hopefully for the next 10 years.

Tanisha: Are there any upcoming projects with you, I know you have a movie for Thanksgiving?

Darrin: Yes, its called Nothing Like Thanksgiving, it’s going to be on the AMC channel.  Im very excited about people seeing it, its about love & life… and once again FAMILY its one to watch on Thanksgiving Day.

Cardi B Speaks on Her ‘Breaking Point’ with Nicki Minaj in ‘W’ Magazine

In the mag, she revealed what transpired leading up to the moment she attempted to fight Nicki Minaj at the Harper’s Bazaar ‘Icons’ party earlier his year.

Photograph by Mickalene Thomas; Styled by Kollin Carter. W Magazine.

“For a while now she’s been taking a lot of shots at me,” she said of Minaj, jiggling her leg. “I spoke to her twice before, and we came to an understanding. But she kept it going.” Her breaking point came when she saw that Minaj had liked, and then unliked, a tweet disparaging Cardi’s mothering skills, something Minaj has denied. “I was going to make millions off my Bruno Mars tour, and I sacrificed that to stay with my daughter,” Cardi went on. “I love my daughter. I’m a good-ass fucking mom. So for somebody that don’t have a child to like that comment? So many people want to say that party wasn’t the time or the place, but I’m not going to catch another artist in the grocery store or down the block.”

Author/ Actress Briana Cole Offers 5 Helpful Tips for Starting out in your Acting Career

It’s Time To Act Right!

Briana Cole is a published author and young emerging actress. The Atlanta native is a proud mother of two. Her motto and ultimate drive towards success is a famous quote from Mae West: “You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.”

“When I write novels, I am bringing moments to life through my character development, plots and narrative flow. When I am acting (whether in film or theater), I am bringing someone else’s characters to life through my physical actions, my performance. In both mediums, I am on a journey, pursuing what I enjoy while learning and applying my knowledge and experiences along the way.”

A dual creative, Briana Cole, known as the “lit drama queen’ is a featured new voice with Dafina/Kensington and an actress appearing in the upcoming season of TV One’s docu-series, Fatal Attraction. Here she offers some tips to those with acting aspirations, who are just getting their feet wet.

Develop additional skills. Take a dance class, learn to speak another language, learn to ride a motor vehicle. All of these special skills will certainly set you apart and looks great on your acting resume. I signed up for a Combat and Weapons Training for Actors class where we will learn basic hand-to-hand combat (slaps, punches, etc) as well as weapon handling (how to draw/hold a gun, etc). This type of training gives me a significant advantage over other actors.

Invest in a Professional Head shot. Even your best selfie won’t land you the audition. Nothing screams unprofessional more than an unfocused photo, selfie, or group photo where you have cropped your friends out. Do some research and find a cost-effective photographer in your area that specializes in head shot photography. Often times, students are more than willing to assist because they are looking to build up their own portfolio. Acting is a very competitive industry and when directors are getting inundated with submissions for their roles, they are weeding through quickly. If a casting director doesn’t think you’re serious enough to invest in your career with a professional photo, they will find someone else.

Master your video audition. Video auditions are recorded auditions which can really expand your opportunities. Typically, the casting director sends you instructions on creating and submitting the footage, along with your lines (or sides). You can either self-tape at home or in a professional studio. However, make sure you have good lighting, a good quality camera, your lines memorized, and a reader, or someone off-camera to read any other lines from the script, if necessary. This allows for you to remain in character while acting and reacting in the entire scene. I booked the lead role for TV One’s Fatal Attraction solely off of my video audition.

Be determined not desperate. The acting and modeling industry is a prime breeding ground for scammers. Don’t be so eager to “make it” that you find yourself conned out of money or worse, in some kind of danger. The age-old slogan still holds true: If it’s too good to be true, it probably is.

Network with actors, specifically. The value of networking with other actors comes in handy and can help weed out scams.  At the end of the day, our journeys are all different and you can very well pull a Pamela Anderson and end up discovered without a single head shot or acting class. However, it’s good to adequately equip yourself. Above all, believe in yourself and keep pursuing your passion because you have something that needs to be shared.

A Few Quotes from Panel Discussions

#BlackGirlMagic

Don’t take no for an answer. Believe in yourself and have your own personal value—that’s how you will last in this industry for a long time.” – EnVogue

“To have black girl magic, it’s really recognizing that magic that’s in yourself first.” – Naturi Naughton

“Don’t let the brown [skin], don’t let the dark eyes, don’t let the natural hair stop you.” – Bernice Holmes

State of Black America: How to Make Our Voices Heard in this Political Climate

“None of us would have existed had it not been the backbone of our black women. Black women stood up and brought us back every time. We have got to be involved. We have to be sensitive to where we are—where we are with our voting rights, where we are with health care, where we are with gender rights?”  – Al Sharpton

“When I first began, my main objective was to just be good at rapping … but as time goes by, you start to realize that people are actually listening to you and you have things you want to say outside of music.” – Remy Ma

“It’s not easy. There’s not a short-term solution to handle things. You have to get into the trenches, you have to raise your voice as loud as you can even if sometimes you don’t understand what you’re fighting.” – Ashley G. Sharpton

Dating, Marriage, Love & The Internet: How to Make it All Work

“There’s too much of a stigma put on how you meet a person. God may use online dating more than he may use the church to bring you the right person because people can hide in church … find the person, however God brings them to you.” DeVon Franklin

“The worst mistake you can make is to get married before you know yourself.” Charreah K. Jackson

“The most important thing [about online dating] is honesty. You have to be honest” Kenya Moore

Living in The Gospel

“Let’s stop talking about what God can do and walk in what you can do. We should come to the table with everything he’s given us and let’s challenge each other in the church, so that we can use our skills, our talents for God to multiply that through obedience.” Dr. Stacie NC Grant

“We have to forgive debts for our debts to be forgiven. That’s the only way.” Brian Courtney Wilson

“You have to have time for God” Maranda Curtis

Circle of Sisters (COS) is the largest expo for women of color in New York City with more than 40,000 attendees.

Stephen Curry Takes a Shot at Producing for Hollywood

Steph Curry Variety Cover Story
Credit: MATTHIAS CLAMER FOR VARIETY

Stephen Curry, 30, is stepping into a new playing field which consists of producing films!

Via Variety:

His focus is no longer divided now that his wife, Ayesha, is weeks away from delivering their third child and first son, Canon W. Jack Curry. “I actually thought the baby was going to be here yesterday,” he says, nervously patting the mobile phone inside the pocket of his UnderArmour sweatpants. “It was kind of a false alarm. But I’m on alert right now.”

Fatherhood isn’t the only matter far from the basketball court that’s getting more of Curry’s attention today. The afternoon will take him to offices he keeps in Oakland for another new feature of his postseason: development meetings. He announced in April that he was getting into the entertainment business by way of a wide-ranging dealbetween the production company he had formed, Unanimous Media, and Sony Pictures Entertainment. The All-Star guard sat down with Variety to talk at length about the details of his new venture, including several films already in development — just one part of an ambitious partnership that aims to extend as far as video games, virtual reality and consumer products. But films and TV are the focus of the deal, with concentrations in three core areas: faith, family and sports.

When Curry saw a few years ago what Lebron James and other athletes were starting to do in the entertainment space, he was intrigued. He turned to Jeron Smith, a former Nike brand manager and White House deputy director of digital strategy during the Obama administration, for guidance.

“As we talked about what he wanted to do with his brand and where he wanted to go, he landed on this North Star: Stephen wants to inspire as many people as possible,” says Smith. “There’s no more effective way to touch broad audiences and inspire as many people than with the sharing and dissemination of content globally.”

Michelle Obama Launches Voter Registration Campaign with Tom Hanks, Lin-Manuel Miranda & Janelle Monae

Former First Lady Michelle Obama and some other famous friends will launch a new voter registration nonprofit called When We All Vote.

In addition to the Hamilton creator and the first lady, the co-chairs of the national nonpartisan organization include actor Tom Hanks, country music stars (and spouses) Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, basketball player Chris Paul and singer-songwriter Janelle Monáe.

Through extensive social media and digital outreach, the national organization aims to increase the number of eligible citizens who register to vote and who actually show up to the polls on election day.

The launch video shows Obama and Miranda personally making voter registration calls, reminding the other co-chairs to vote in every election, “school board, state house, all of them,” Obama instructs.

“Voting is the only way to ensure that our values and priorities are represented in the halls of power,” Obama says in a statement in When We All Vote’s press release. “And it’s not enough to just vote for president every four years. We all have to vote in every single election: for mayor, governor, school board, state legislature and Congress. The leaders we elect to these offices help determine just about every aspect of our lives and our democracy. So the future of our families, our communities and our country belongs to those of us who show up, cast our votes, and make our voices heard.”

When We All Vote aims to increase voter registration rates in all 50 states hoping to make waves in a political landscape where registration rates are low. In 2014, more than 1/5th of eligible American citizens were not registered to vote, according to the Pew Charitable Trusts research cited in the press release.

When We All Vote is embracing a three-pronged strategy to achieve its registration and participation oriented goals: volunteer recruitment; improved voter registration processes; and increased conversation across the United States. This approach will involve recruiting on-the-ground people and organizations in all 50 states, and extensive social media and digital outreach. When We All Vote is also partnering with corporate, education and civic institutions to reach voters nationwide, according to the press release.

“Voting is a small act that proves that we are a democracy a government of the people and by the people. It’s up to each and every one of us to make sure our government doesn’t just represent a small some not just the most powerful but all of us. When we all vote, we are making strides toward a more perfect union,” Hanks says in a statement.

Monáe adds in a statement, “It’s gonna be our generation that corrects the mistakes of our past and creates a more inclusive future that works for us all. As voters, we are the ones that hold the power to make this dream a reality.”

First I’d like to say thank you to all my #DREAmers and those who support me on this journey. To the ones that come on my page to spew venom and #victimshame You are by far the biggest supporter of my abuser. By you shaming me and any other victims you’re helping the abuser accomplish their task of belittling, intimidating, and discounting all the abuse they’ve put the #victim and #victims through! PERIOD! No two ways about it. I almost allowed you and your hate to overshadow all the LOVE AND SUPPORT I RECEIVE. But you WILL NOT stop me from saving lives and giving hope to those who are where I was. I AM A VOICE FOR THE VOICELESS! I am a #SURVIVOR OF #SEXUAL ABUSE #EMOTIONAL ABUSE #PHYSICAL ABUSE #ECONOMIC ABUSE at the hands of my EX husband. For years I was fearful to come forward with my FULL truth. You trolls pass judgment and say that I never spoke of it before now but clearly you have not been following me or my journey if you look on my Instagram you see where I HAVE POSTED several times about being a survivor of domestic violence. Just because your curiosity wasn’t satisfied DOESN’T MEAN my HORROR WASN’T REAL….like for real FUCK YOU AND HIM! To my #SURVIVORS I LOVE YOU ALL AND WE GOT THIS!

You trolls pass judgment and say that I never spoke of it before now but clearly you have not been following me or my journey if you look on my Instagram you see where I HAVE POSTED several times about being a survivor of domestic violence.”

Reps for the R&B singer have denied any accusations, including those made by Andrea, previously telling PEOPLE in a statement that he “has close friendships with a number of women who are strong, independent, happy, well cared for and free to come and go as they please.”

“We deny the many dark descriptions put forth by instigators and liars who have their own agenda for seeking profit and fame,” a rep said. “All of the women targeted by the current media onslaught are legal adults of sound mind and body, with their own free will. Law enforcement officials in Atlanta and Chicago previously have made ‘wellness’ visits to check on the women in question and have found everything to be safe and sound.”

If you or someone you know think they are being abused, call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233 (SAFE) or 1-800-787-3224 (TTY) now for anonymous, confidential help, available 24/7.
