This week's #wcw is none other than my TV mama @margaretshugavery. For the last 7 years, I've had the luxury of watching this Oscar nominated actress work up close. I am so grateful for the master class she blessed us all with everyday on the set of #beingmaryjane. Ms. Avery dropped so many pearls of wisdom, tales of shenanigans, impromptu concerts and room filling smiles to last a lifetime. She is an actress, singer, activist, devoted mother and still dances up a storm at hot spots around the city with her crew. I am a better woman for being in her presence. Let's us continue to lift her up in the light of goodness and hold her there.
When the world works my last nerve, I come home to this lil face and it reminds me to pull my ish together and continue to fight the good fight. Whew... MY. LAST. NERVE 🥴 Grateful for @kaaviajames 💖💖💖💖💖💖💖
In Spring of 2012, I got the opportunity of a lifetime - Pauletta "Mary Jane" Patterson came into my life. In many ways we shared similar struggles and triumphs, loves and losses, and especially the penchant for epic reads. Finally, so many of us saw our beautifully complicated and rich lives as we tuned into @betmaryjane. We've laughed, cried, cried some more, screamed, rolled our eyes, sucked our teeth, walked away and come back in frustration... whether we acknowledged it or rejected it, she at times was us, and we were her. Tomorrow night our #beingmaryjane journey comes to an end. I hope yall tune in and see how it all ends. I will miss playing her, but more than that, I will miss our cast, Atlanta crew, LA writers and each and every fan who watched our show. We are grateful and we are humbled. We ❤ yall and we never took you for granted. We apologize for the delay but we are here and ready to snatch wigs and moisturize elbows. Get ready! The Series Finale is tomorrow on @bet at 8/7c
Happy Birthday Mom!!! Theresa Marie Glass Union, the woman who is pure love and light. I'm sorry when I actually thought I had all the answers. I now know, you were allowing me to live and make mistakes and come to my own conclusions and learn some hard ass lessons. Thank you for taking me to get my library card and for our shared love of books and words. You really are just getting started and you are so loved and appreciated. #72 🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗
Today's #wcw is @beyonce. While she needs no introduction and we all know what shes accomplished, and she means so much to so many, lemme give all praise and glory to the woman who continuously and unapologetically inspires me to push limits, boundaries, and redefines what it is to be a conscientious entertainer and global citizen. Thank you B for being exactly who you are and thank you for leading from the front. Thank you for never acting brand new whenever I see you. Thank you for the soul hugs and knowing smiles. Thank you for telling me not to give up on my mommy dreams. And thank you for showing up at the Spades tourney! Her new Netflix documentary Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé is a must see, as she gives us a glimpse of all the hard work and sleepless nights it takes to be the Queen Bey. Beyond this two hour doc of fierceness , there is an album to accompany it... Homecoming: The Live Album. Give yourself a treat and dive into both! To a real, real one... let us continue to lift her up in the light of goodness and hold her there.
