I need to rant... Part Deux

I need to rant... Part Deux

2019-05-1600:28:06

I need to rant! There's some topics that have been heavy on my chest for some time and I need to talk them out. Thanks for listening! In this episode I discuss the one Met Gala look that bothered me most (you'll be shocked!), Kim Kardashian trying to become a lawyer, and my secret obsession - Kardashian/Jenner babies.   *CORRECTION*  I said that Regina King became an actress at 40 - I meant Regina Hall! Regina King has been acting since she was a teen on 227! I also said the Regina was a teacher before acting - that was actually Jesse Williams! I'm sure other actors used to teach as well though!
