Ya think I'm funny? Am I just black entertainment to you?

My Darling Muchachitas,
Check out my new Q&A and ACCIDENTAL DIVA excerpt on! If you think I sound like an ornery schizophrenic totally lacking in irony (“...that movie, ‘Diary of a Mad Black Woman’ really pissed me off!”), imagine the sound bytes you’d deliver if expected to be eloquent about the media’s portrayal of black women....the morning after a recurring nightmare in which your second novel’s protagonist shoots you with flaming arrows. But enjoy! And thanks Tonya!

That was a great interview. Loved the insight into how you came up w/some of the ideas for the book.

I agree with what you said about the way black women are represented in fiction. It's so predictable. And anyone that is honest about that "Diary Movie" is alright with me. Great interview.

Hope the writer's block is gone :)

Very insightful interview! You don't sound crazy and deranged at all. =) And thank you for your assessment of that train wreck that was "Diary of a Mad Black Woman."

Did you guys hear the new?

That groove that Terry McMillan got back on her tropical vacation, when she met the hot young Jamaican stud Jonathan Plummer, who rearranged all her atoms into a new transcendental orbit? Who inspired the bestseller "How Stella Got Her Groove Back"? Which became the box-office sensation with Angela Bassett and a torso-writhing Taye Diggs? With the shower scene and the beach scene, which some women have watched with yearning and hope, oh, 89 times?
Worse, gone down low .
In a pending California divorce that is getting uglier by the hour, McMillan, 53, claims that Plummer, 30, is gay and manipulated her into marriage to become a U.S. citizen. She contends he wants to bust their prenup and get at some of the millions she has earned as a best-selling author.

O mi,I think Mcmillian is being a bit disingenuous. She knew sooner than she is leading the public to believe. He looks sweet, in a non-ambiguous homosexual sort of way. I hope that she does have an ironclad prenup, otherwise she will pay him a pretty penny. Her interviewss of late reveal so much pain. She is comin off as being a gay basher, not a good move. Now on to him. He knew he was gay. I suspect some fidelity has occurred as well. Sad filthy story....can you imagine his private parts have been in....ick!
