First & foremost I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the fact that Geisha presented this wonderful idea back in 2013! I wonder why they didn’t make her a cast member 🤔

I was scrolling down my TL and I saw a post by Bobby Lytes making the announcement about the Inaugural Season of Love & Hip Hop Miami. I promptly reposted the post on @thechunkychickz IG and I’m glad that I did, because it looks like Bobby edited his original post but we still have ours up on our page check it out!

With that being said I present to you the cast of Love & Hip Hop Miami sans Lattie, Latta and Geisha…

Ok, so first of all kudos to Monami Entertainment I think they did a great job with the casting… I don’t know some of these people but so far it looks like Trick Daddy, Trina, Gunplay, Miami Tip, Bobby Lytes, Veronica Vega, & Shay Johnson will be on the show. I can’t wait to see what Mr. Hoe problems ain’t no problems aka Miami’s very own JT Money of the Poison Clan has to say about his sons relationship with Bobby Lytes! We interviewed Bobby Lytes on the Chunky Chickz Radio Show a few months back and he would not spill the beans about this relationship.  I can’t wait to see this show.

The Cast of FX’s Snowfall Host Screening at Regal South Beach on July 28, 2017

Have you been watching this show?! Well, If you haven’t you need to start!

I attended the screening for FX’s Snowfall that was hosted by the cast a few weeks ago at the Regal Cinema theater on South Beach. Saw a few familiar faces of Miami’s taste maker’s, power players and obviously the cast of Snowfall. Shout out to my girl Elora Mason for the plug!

The heart of Snowfall, John Singleton’s new FX series about the origins of the crack epidemic, is Franklin Saint (Damson Idris), a smart, kindhearted teenager who takes care of his mother, keeps the neighborhood kids in line, works nights in a bodega, and sells weed on the side for his uncle Jerome (Amin Joseph). One day, a white friend from his fancy high school in the Valley recruits Franklin to procure more cocaine for his pool party. “You afraid to go get it, so send a black guy, right?” Franklin says, quizzically. “I’ll be the black guy. Shit, I’m always the black guy.” Which is how he finds himself in the house of a comical Israeli cocaine dealer (Andrew Howard) who only sells in bulk. And senses an opportunity.

Snowfall is full of moments like this—scenes and interludes that attempt to put the complex racial and geopolitical dynamics of the 1980s drug trade in context. Franklin is just one of a revolving cast of characters who see the growing enthusiasm for cocaine in the U.S. as a way to further their own ambitions, while staying willfully blind to the consequences. There’s Teddy McDonald (Carter Hudson), a disgraced CIA agent who gets involved in an off-the-books operation with Nicaraguan Contras to try and resurrect his career. And Lucia (Emily Rios), the niece of a drug lord who stages a robbery to fund her own business. In its sprawling consideration of the many different players who kickstarted an epidemic, Snowfall ticks all the boxes of a prestige drug drama. But its characters often feel like ciphers, generic stand-ins for the various factions implicated in cocaine’s rise. Singleton can’t quite get to the core of why these sympathetic and intelligent people would be so willing to risk everything for a business whose ugliest elements seem to horrify them.

I got a chance to interview a few of the cast members on the red carpet check it out!

ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK’S DASCHA POLANCO HONORED WITH HER OWN DAY IN NEW YORK CITY

DASCHA

One time for the Curvy Chicks! It has been one hell of a week in Chunky Chickz World but I’m glad we can end the week on a good note!

Dascha Polanco of #OITNB fame was honored with her very own day in New York City on Tuesday, August 8, 2017. Aug. 8th has officially been declared “Dascha Polanco Day.” On Tuesday Mayor Bill de Blasio honored the actress during Dominican Heritage Night, he presented her with a proclamation dedicated to her philanthropic impact on the Dominican community, her groundbreaking career as a Hollywood star, and for opening a theater program with The Dream Project in her native Dominican Republic.

Dascha took to Instagram to share her excitement, with a video clip from the ceremony and a caption that read.

“Today was an honor to have the Mayor of NYC & the First Lady celebrate my culture. It was a moment to embrace, they honored me today with a proclamation that today 8/8/2017 is DASCHA POLANCO DAY in the City of NY. I’m proud to be a Dominican raised in Brooklyn. #selflovery #ismellgood

 

That is MAJOR! Congrats!!!
