So it seems that “Republican women” are mad because Oprah won’t have Palin on her show and have called for a boycott of the Oprah Winfrey show that started on September 8th (yeah, I’m late!).  Give me a break!  First off, Oprah endorsed Obama in 2007…and later said that she would not have ANY presidential candidate on her program during the election…but would have them on AFTER the election.  Though Barack and Michelle Obama have been on her show before, it was NOT during the actual presidential election that is going on now.  That means no Barack, no McCain, no Biden trying to utilize her program as a political platform during the election.  Sorry “Republican women”…but that means Palin, too!

Yesterday, Tyra did an entire show dedicated to celebrating the Black models that were in the ALL Black issue of Italian Vogue (of which I have TWO copies!).  Supposedly it is the highest selling issue ever and they are currently on their third printing!  Toccarra, who was discovered on Tyra’s show America’s Next Top Model had a 14 page spread in the magazine!  Toccarra was on the show, along with Selita Eubanks, Beverly Johnson, B. Smith, Veronica Webb, Chanel Iman, Noemie Lenoir, and Jessica White, among others.  There were SO many beautiful Black women on the stage…every hue, every size…it just confirmed to me how stunningly beautiful we are!!!
