Demetria takes reader requests for this week's topics. The result? She muses on Dionne Warwick's questionable statements about Beyonce', Jordyn Woods' first TV role on Grown-ish, Peter Gunz's 11th child, Trey Songz's baby boy, the new season of She's Gotta Have It, and how to make a transition from an old life to a new one.
Demetria chats with therapist Lisa Chandler about black women anxiety, the strong black woman archetype (healthy) tools to self-soothe and how to find a therapist.
Demetria and OmNoire Founder Christina discuss new beginnings, "a-ha moments", breaking cycles of dysfunction, "staying for the kids" and moving on from relationship drama/trauma. (Plus audience questions.)
Demetria pontificates on Steve and Marjorie divorce rumors, Jussie Smollet's explosion from Empire, John Singleton's passing, West Indian Archie aka the newest addition to the royal family, Billy Porter's Old Testament realness at the Met Gala, Georgia's new abortion law, and why everyone hates Ayesha Curry so damn much.
Demetria shares her predictions for the next episode of Game of Thrones, celebrates Idris Elba’s marriage, offers advice for oft-embattled Jordyn Woods, wonders about the Obamas new Netflix offerings and speaks to expert educators Erica Buddington (Langston League) and Dr. Ivory Toldson (Howard University) about the curious new policies for parental attire at a Houston high school.
