We Going To Hollywood
[00:00:00] Kim: [00:00:00] I’m Kim
[00:00:02] Donyetta: [00:00:02] and I’m Donyetta
[00:00:04] Kim: [00:00:04] and welcome to Le Twins Experience our third episode. So
[00:00:12] Donyetta: [00:00:12] it still took a lot of work to get here.
[00:00:14] Kim: [00:00:14] Surely that people don’t realize all the technicalities that go on in the background.
[00:00:23] Donyetta: [00:00:23] It looks at it like you see the finished product and it’s some work that goes into it.
[00:00:28] Kim: [00:00:28] It surely is. So what’s been going on in Atlanta this week. What’s happening with you?
[00:00:36] Donyetta: [00:00:36] It’s been a whirlwind of a week.
[00:00:38] So, so we launched the podcast on Monday. Um, let me see what has been going. So that Paul was that dramatic falls was like a highly loop. So Monday morning we launched the podcast. Right. And then I like wake up. Cause I have some meetings for work. I’m still working from home during [00:01:00] COVID. Um, I typically do not work from home, but right now I’m working from home.
[00:01:04] So I walk my dog and I’m coming in. Cause y’all know I’m always running late. Right. So I look at my phone and it says Oprah magazine something, and I was like over magazine. And so I clicked the notifications and Kim, I think my spirit left my body and it was floating above my head because Oprah magazine repost it.
[00:01:23] One of my tick talks.
[00:01:25] Kim: [00:01:25] That was crazy. When I saw that, I
[00:01:27] Donyetta: [00:01:27] said we made it, we made it girl going to Hollywood. So my job, like, I can’t, I can’t be bothered with these things. I have to go to Tyler Perry studios.
[00:01:38] Kim: [00:01:38] Quit your job at your head.
[00:01:40] Donyetta: [00:01:40] Yeah, but I still got on at 10:00 AM conference call. Okay. So, I mean, That was just like a whirlwind in of itself.
[00:01:49] Um, it totally unexpected. I still don’t think like the, the gravity of it all has like sunk in, but like, woo. So my weight started off with
[00:01:59] Kim: [00:01:59] a bang. [00:02:00] So did they ask you beforehand or did they just repost it?
[00:02:04] Donyetta: [00:02:04] They just re posted it. I don’t know how, I don’t know if they saw it because it’s a ticktack, but I posted it on Instagram and my reels section, cause Instagram is trying to kill tick tock.
[00:02:15] Like they did Snapchat, but that’s neither here nor there. Um, so I don’t know how it even came across their eyes, but no, they didn’t, um, acid, they just posted it and then they tagged me in it. So they gave me credit for, so I was just like, Oh, at first I was like, am I reading this wrong? Like, Oh, magazines.
[00:02:34] I used to have a subscription to old magazine, but no, like it really happened. And then like people started messaging me and like telling me that they saw it and then like, Maybe. So today is what we’re recording on a Thursday. Be Scott re posted it. Are you familiar with B Scott?
[00:02:50] Kim: [00:02:50] I love Scott B.
[00:02:52] Donyetta: [00:02:52] Scott re posted it as well.
[00:02:55] Um, and so some other people have reached out like behind the [00:03:00] scenes to ask me if they could use it. And I don’t know if they’re gonna use it, but I did have to give like people, certain people permission to use it. So I’ll keep you guys posted on that, but it’s the same take talk that went viral. With the 1 million views.
[00:03:12] And now that I’ve put it on Instagram as well, it’s just,
[00:03:17] Kim: [00:03:17] they play like you see it. They like seeing you show up late to work with your dog on Bonnie, on
[00:03:24] Donyetta: [00:03:24] I know. Right. And everybody’s like, me and I was in the funny thing about it is like when I make TicTacs. I’m not necessarily talking about like my life experience, but I can tell it would be something that everybody else would relate to or that we all can relate to.
[00:03:38] And so I think that’s what makes it like so relatable. So that’s my week. It’s just, it’s big. And then I’m, I’m buying a house right now. So I’m trying to like, get all this stuff with the moving done. Cause my closing date is like in less than two weeks. No less than three weeks. So just doing all that. So I’m sleepy.
[00:03:57] Uh, when we finished recording this, you girls [00:04:00] going to bed.
[00:04:01] Kim: [00:04:01] So you’ve been, you just had a little busy week here.
[00:04:05] Donyetta: [00:04:05] Yes. It’s just, it’s been busy in a good way and I still can’t believe it all, but. Whew. What, why did I say woo popped in Molly, man? I was sweating. I didn’t, but um, yeah, what’s been going on in your world.
[00:04:19] Kim: [00:04:19] Pop a Molly. I was sweating. Woo. You know, I’m sweating right now. Shoot. I just been a, had a pretty mellow week. I took like three naps this week.
[00:04:32] Donyetta: [00:04:32] Midday. I’m jealous. I am Jay LIS.
[00:04:37] Kim: [00:04:37] I had just been like exhausted for some reason. And I just like, had to like, just stop and lay down for like an hour and a half just to like regroup.
[00:04:47] And my daughter gone kid, my little one, six year old. I got a lock the Dell because he he’ll come in. He’ll tickle my feet when I’m sleeping. can I get like, just this one hour [00:05:00] asleep just to like recharge myself, but yeah, he is cute, but he’s like, he’s a little tower, man. He is, he has personality on him.
[00:05:14] Donyetta: [00:05:14] Yeah, British exit. Yeah, he
[00:05:16] Kim: [00:05:16] does. He talks like Siri because I changed my Siri to the British Siri and you know, every time someone gets in the car, I made it like, why does Siri sound like that? I’m like, cause I changed her like 10 years ago. Y’all never changed Siri to like another voice.
[00:05:30] Donyetta: [00:05:30] I think I heard it when we went hiking and I was like, what?
[00:05:33] Kim: [00:05:33] Yeah. Everywhere. They’re like shocked that Sierra is British, but she sounds good British. So I like Siri to be British. So. Yeah, I’m just, uh, I’m trying to get my runs in. I have like 30 more miles to run in like four days. So I’m hustling on the run front and
[00:05:50] Donyetta: [00:05:50] you can do it.
[00:05:51] Kim: [00:05:51] That’s about it, you know, chilling like a villain.
[00:05:56] Donyetta: [00:05:56] So let’s do it follow up. Tell us about, uh, your lurking [00:06:00] situation. Has that gotten better? Is it about the same what’s going on? Um,
[00:06:04] Kim: [00:06:04] the lurkers are still lurking. But it’s okay. Cause I’m about to block a couple of mofos seriously.
[00:06:14] Donyetta: [00:06:14] Right? If anybody gets blocked by Kim this week, you know, it’s because you’re a lurker, one of the lurkers that we talked about, cause they could still get to the show.
[00:06:23] You don’t block them from your page, but they could still get to the Le Twins Experience page
[00:06:29] Kim: [00:06:29] from late swings. I’m going to block you from straight camp because y’all just
[00:06:35] Donyetta: [00:06:35] it’s so then they go, no. I don’t
[00:06:37] Kim: [00:06:37] care. Honestly.
[00:06:39] Donyetta: [00:06:39] What kind of lurking have they been doing this week? Is it the same shit? Like did they listen to episode one and say to myself, self.
[00:06:47] I might be a lurker or they just full throttle just continue alerts.
[00:06:52] Kim: [00:06:52] Listen, I think that episode has amped up the lurking.
[00:06:58] Donyetta: [00:06:58] I hit well holler. [00:07:00] I had somebody comment on my, um, The Instagram post that I made about us launching the first episode, somebody was in my comments talking about some where’s the coffee video.
[00:07:11] I E the video that old magazine posted you don’t get your ass off my page. So I thought we got a comment, you know, about the podcast. I was like, Oh, they literally put where’s the coffee video. What is wrong with
[00:07:28] Kim: [00:07:28] y’all? Wait, did you delete it? Or did you leave it up here?
[00:07:32] Donyetta: [00:07:32] It’s still there. Y’all do that. Go looking for this person’s name and the comments.
[00:07:36] Uh, but no, it’s still there. I left it there. I told them and I told them where it was like, I was nice about it, but I was still thinking, but wait,
[00:07:45] Kim: [00:07:45] how did they get to the podcast podcast page when Oprah tag your personal page? Like y’all too busy. Like, yeah, it was
[00:07:51] Donyetta: [00:07:51] on my page and a post that I made about the podcast.
[00:07:56] So they just went to the last thing I posted. I was like, where’s the coffee video? But you [00:08:00] saw that, but you didn’t take the time to look to find the coffee video, because I just posted that, that tick tock video, like a week ago, I don’t post that much. Like it literally is right there. So whatever papers
[00:08:13] Kim: [00:08:13] people don’t have, the good sense that God gave them.
[00:08:15] I swear.
[00:08:17] Donyetta: [00:08:17] That’s like a, somebody, if, if Eddie Murphy comes up and be like, where where’s Charlie Murphy, or we don’t want to see you, Kelly wrote them. We want to see beyond shut up.
[00:08:27] Kim: [00:08:27] Janet Murphy
[00:08:29] Donyetta: [00:08:29] shot at Murphy. My dad looks like Charlie Murphy really? So when I was a little girl, I would always tell him he looked like Eddie Murphy.
[00:08:38] Cause I didn’t know who Charlie Murphy was. And then even after see before, like I didn’t put two and two together, but when Dave Chappelle show came out and Charlie Murphy did those appearances, like everybody who’s met, my dad, they’d be talking to be like, wait, you know, your dad I’d be like, yeah, I know.
[00:08:54] He looks like Charlie Murphy,
[00:08:56] Kim: [00:08:56] Charlie Murphy passed. Right.
[00:08:59] Donyetta: [00:08:59] He did. [00:09:00] He had a. So I believe his wife passed from some type of cancer and then not many years afterwards. Uh, I believe he had like a form of cancer. Yeah. Wow.
[00:09:12] Kim: [00:09:12] That’s so sad. Rest in peace, Charlie Murphy.
[00:09:15] Donyetta: [00:09:15] He was a great, great
[00:09:16] Kim: [00:09:16] comedian.
[00:09:19] Donyetta: [00:09:19] All right. So we want to get into some, some good stuff.
[00:09:24] Kim: [00:09:24] I don’t know if this is good stuff, but a lot has happened this week. So first up is the whole Jacob Lake situation. Another thank goodness, not fatal this time, but another shooting involving an unarmed black man and the police. Where was it? Kanosha. Okay. Can I show
[00:09:46] Donyetta: [00:09:46] some yeah. Cool. Napoli, Kanosha, Westcott.
[00:09:48] I know it was in Wisconsin. The name of the city. I’m not sure. Let me see if I can find it. You know, when I first saw that I’m so tired of this stuff, like literally like makes me sick to my stomach. And typically I’m not a [00:10:00] person that watches the news. Um, and it bothers me either way good or bad, but like, literally I’m, I’m very much so over it.
[00:10:08] Kim: [00:10:08] Yeah. Like I just watched the video, like. Just now, before we started recording, because yeah, it was just, I can’t, I can’t take so much more of this, you know, it’s just, it’s it makes you angry. It’s depressing. It’s just, when is this going to stop?
[00:10:31] Donyetta: [00:10:31] Especially like ed, I just looked up is wow. Y Y w I’m from Smith station, Alabama, and I can’t pronounce while Watsa w a U w a T O S a Wisconsin.
[00:10:48] Um, I’m not even
[00:10:49] Kim: [00:10:49] going to try.
[00:10:49] Donyetta: [00:10:49] So we’re in a period with, uh, the murder of George Floyd, the murder of Amar Arbery and police are very much aware that they are being watched. Police are [00:11:00] very much aware, um, that there’s always cameras and you still feel. I don’t know. So I don’t even know what the word to use is, but you’re still, you, you know, you’re being recorded, you know, that we’re in an intensified state in the country and you still don’t care.
[00:11:14] You still like, at your core, like your, your instinct still like override, like good judge and the, yeah, there were several people out there who viewed this and people actively have their like camera phones out and you still shoot this man in the back, like seven, seven times. Not once seven, like what
[00:11:36] Kim: [00:11:36] did he think that he was going into the car to get a weapon,
[00:11:41] Donyetta: [00:11:41] a tank, a hand grenade, like I don’t.
[00:11:45] And then what, from what I read, there was a scuffle before, um, The parts of the video that we’ve seen. So allegedly there was a scuffle before, at one point the police had him in a headlock, maybe yes or no. And then he [00:12:00] starts walking around from the passenger side of the van to the driver’s side, which is where the video that most of us saw, um, starts from.
[00:12:07] And as he goes to get in, I did see the police officer grabbed his shirt and try to pull him back. And then he pulls his gun out. And at that close of range, like shoots him seven times seven. And even at, I think even that’s that’s deadly force,
[00:12:24] Kim: [00:12:24] I want to know, okay, the guy he was walking away, you couldn’t like, turn your gun around and like knock them on the back of this shelter.
[00:12:32] Or like something like what, what possesses another individual to, I mean, you’re not shooting to arm. If you’re shooting. Nash, you know, shooting to wound you’re shooting to kill if you’re shooting someone seven times. Yeah.
[00:12:46] Donyetta: [00:12:46] At that close, I heard that they taste him before. Um, the video that most of us saw started to that there was a scuffle, there was headlock involved that there was tasing involved.
[00:12:56] And then, you know, and he is [00:13:00] partially paralyzed. Uh, and then we saw today that CNN reported that even though he is partially paralyzed, he cannot walk his family. Doesn’t think he will ever be able to walk again. He’s handcuffed to his hospital bed.
[00:13:13] Kim: [00:13:13] Like, where’s he going? Where is it? Like, why? So y’all have this man handcuffed to the bed.
[00:13:21] What was his crime? Do we know what his crime was? Why were they bothering him in the first place?
[00:13:29] Donyetta: [00:13:29] So the police officer that shot him was from Kenosha. He’s in the Watson. The word that I spelled out, he’s in a hospital there. Let’s see. I don’t think there is a crime. And if there’s one that hasn’t been released, I know that this has sparked outrage.
[00:13:48] Um, just like the murder of George Floyd. We even have some instances here in Atlanta, um, were downtown. There were, um, Some escalations, um, in protests and, um, [00:14:00] property damage and stuff done. Like people are tired, black people. We are as a, as a people, we are tired
[00:14:06] Kim: [00:14:06] and tired of the bullshit.
[00:14:10] Donyetta: [00:14:10] Like, what do you want from us?
[00:14:12] Like you, you built your country on our backs for free
[00:14:16] Donyetta: [00:14:16] you use your Bibles to justify it. Um, we don’t have the. Like it takes a, it took us a while to like get voting rights. We had to fight for civil rights and like, what, what more do you want? I don’t know,
[00:14:31] Kim: [00:14:31] defund the damn police that that’s what we need to do because you know, it’s like what type of training do these officers go through?
[00:14:40] Like, I don’t,
[00:14:41] Donyetta: [00:14:41] what kind of education do they have?
[00:14:43] Kim: [00:14:43] That’s what I want to know. Cause you know where I live, like I’m in New York, but I’m not in New York city. So in New York city, I think the police officers have to have like a high school diploma maybe, or a GED, but in long Island, they have to have a, I think at [00:15:00] least a two year degree, maybe a four, but I know it’s at least a two year degree and.
[00:15:05] But they get paid much more money than New York city police officers, but other,
[00:15:10] Donyetta: [00:15:10] do they have, um, as many reports or complaints against them as New York city officers in law?
[00:15:16] Kim: [00:15:16] You know, I don’t know because the town that I live in, we have our own, like we’re an incorporated town, so we have our own police department and, you know, people always have.
[00:15:27] Bad good and bad things to say about the police department. So, you know, I don’t hear too, too many bad things, but that doesn’t mean it’s not happening. It’s just not being publicized. You know? So yeah. Like, I don’t know. This makes me scared for my son. He’s 14, you know, and luckily he’s a home body and he doesn’t like to go out and hang out.
[00:15:49] But when he does want to do that, like what’s, you know, I have to teach him like, What’s it do if you encounter the police, because it’s just, this is like a [00:16:00] frightening time that we’re living in right now. It’s crazy.
[00:16:03] Donyetta: [00:16:03] I couldn’t imagine was like Tamar rice. Wasn’t he planned in his front yard.
[00:16:08] Kim: [00:16:08] Like we can’t live.
[00:16:09] You can’t eat. Live your life. You can’t even go outside. It’s play. It’s just frightening Tasha to stay my behind and can come shoot.
[00:16:22] Donyetta: [00:16:22] I should have done. I should have got fluid out and came with you, man.
[00:16:29] Kim: [00:16:29] So then we have this little 17 year road terrorists
[00:16:34] Donyetta: [00:16:34] psychopath
[00:16:35] Kim: [00:16:35] written house who goes out with his frickin, what did he have?
[00:16:39] Like AK 47.
[00:16:42] Donyetta: [00:16:42] I think it was like an assault rifle
[00:16:44] Kim: [00:16:44] kills two protests. And I think he like wounded another one. And what did you say? Like he went home. That’s a good one to
[00:16:51] Donyetta: [00:16:51] sleep, but yeah, I don’t believe he was arrested that day. I believe he went home. Uh, I believe he went to sleep and I think they, uh, ma arrested [00:17:00] him the next day.
[00:17:02] Ridiculous. I may see. And you know, like my black behind, and I couldn’t pull that off even I’m a female. So I think black females aren’t, um, as feared as black males are in this country. But trust and believe we have, we have your Brianna tailors, we have your Sandra Blands, you know, let me see what they’re saying about this Wisconsin too.
[00:17:29] Like what’s going on in Wisconsin? Like before this, we only heard about, I’ve never heard anything come out of Wisconsin. Let’s see. On Wednesday he was arrested at his mother’s home in Antioch, Illinois. But how did he get after a black man was shot?
[00:17:45] Kim: [00:17:45] So how did you get from the protest? And he got all the way back home.
[00:17:49] No one like tackled him or did anything.
[00:17:55] Donyetta: [00:17:55] He had a military style, semiautomatic rifle. He killed two [00:18:00] people and he seriously injured a third. So first of all, black people get stopped. For just walking down the street with no assault rifles. How are you walking down the street with a whole assault? Right, right.
[00:18:13] Kim: [00:18:13] But is that an open carry state?
[00:18:16] Donyetta: [00:18:16] I don’t even know, like our assault rifles, like open carry weapons, like it’s open carry. Well, I guess it could be because you do have, like, I know here the black Panther party, I believe it was the black Panther party and the KKK, they had a face office stone mountain. So I think they did have guns, um, nothing, you know, escalator or whatever, but I think that they.
[00:18:36] I guess if you have an, uh, uh,
[00:18:38] Kim: [00:18:38] open carry, carry permit,
[00:18:40] Donyetta: [00:18:40] you can carry whatever,
[00:18:42] Kim: [00:18:42] but did he carry the cross state line? That, that I heard that,
[00:18:47] Donyetta: [00:18:47] well, they just say he was arrested at his mother’s house in Illinois. Yeah. I don’t have any words.
[00:18:56] Kim: [00:18:56] Yeah. Well you, did you hear that? The, um, the NBA, the [00:19:00] teams, like they shut down all the games yesterday.
[00:19:04] Donyetta: [00:19:04] I did hear that the NBA boycotted the WMB boycotted and good for them. Mmm. For taking a stand and like for using their platform, uh, to speak out against something that they feel very strongly about.
[00:19:20] Like you cannot keep killing black people. Like we are animals to be hunted and want us to play your basketball games and your football games, uh, your college basketball game football games. And. To work for you. Like just black lives matter is a minimal
[00:19:38] Kim: [00:19:38] put it, they put it on the court, it’s on the basketball court.
[00:19:41] But look, the NBA owners, they put up a measly $300 million fund. This is like a billion dollar industry, multibillion dollar industry. And all of your teams can only put up 300 million for this cause like, Digging that the players need to stay on strike and don’t work with these people anymore until [00:20:00] they put their money where their mouth is because 300 million, it’s a lot of money to us, but to them collectively, all of the NBA teams, it’s not a lot of money.
[00:20:08] So, yeah.
[00:20:11] Donyetta: [00:20:11] And then you think about it and Colin Kaepernick was drug fulfilled because he just decided to kneel. And how many years ago was that? When
[00:20:21] Kim: [00:20:21] at least three or four years.
[00:20:24] Donyetta: [00:20:24] And it’s still going on. So he had a point like us as a people, we knew he had a point, but nothing’s changed. It’s I don’t know if it’s getting worse, per se, as much as more people are recording it and making it aware to the general public.
[00:20:39] Um, but yeah, nothing has changed. I know that for us, that surely
[00:20:43] Kim: [00:20:43] hasn’t. So last year he played was 2016, 17 season.
[00:20:49] Donyetta: [00:20:49] Wow.
[00:20:51] Kim: [00:20:51] So it’s been three
[00:20:52] Donyetta: [00:20:52] seasons. They call him unpatriotic. They said he was disrespecting the American flag. [00:21:00] Uh, uh, my stomach hurts. I can’t I’m over it. We’re all over it.
[00:21:07] Kim: [00:21:07] Sick and tired of being sick and tired.
[00:21:10] Donyetta: [00:21:10] Yes, indeed.
[00:21:12] Kim: [00:21:12] The CDC remove the 14 day quarantine for travelers coming in from. Hotspots States
[00:21:22] Donyetta: [00:21:22] and my Scooby Dubois, bro.
[00:21:27] Why, what is wrong with us? Like, Whoa. We’re the only ones running around, like on the playground, exchanges, Snyder, all the other countries in the whole freaking world have their stuff together. Their Corona virus cases are decreasing and we’re over here acting like the damn two live crew I’m so done. I’m about to give fluid out and I’m going to Jamaica
[00:21:54] Kim: [00:21:54] and you know, like I, um, I’ve flown in from Atlanta twice.
[00:21:59] And [00:22:00] once in July, once in August, The first time in July, the 14 day Corenti was in effect, but they weren’t enforcing it. Then when I came through, actually, when I came through from Ken cocoon, because I flew in from, I had a connector in Charlotte at the gate, wait, there were agents at the gate. So you couldn’t, once you came out the plane, the agents were at the gate.
[00:22:25] Yes. And you had to either fill out a form or you had to show them proof that you filled it out on the app. So
[00:22:33] Donyetta: [00:22:33] what’s the more,
[00:22:35] Kim: [00:22:35] it’s just the form saying where you’ve been like your address. So I guess if they need to contact you to make sure that you’re quarantining, they have a way to get ahold of you.
[00:22:43] And the next time, when I flew in from Atlanta, the flight attendant at the gate was giving out the form, but there was no one there and forcing it. But I did see those agents coming down the hall to go to [00:23:00] another gate, to enforce people filling out that it’s, there’s no rhyme or reason to this country.
[00:23:05] Like nothing makes sense.
[00:23:08] Donyetta: [00:23:08] Like
[00:23:08] Kim: [00:23:08] if there’s a 40 day quarantine, first of all, it should be digital. That paper is bullshit because you can fill out anything on that paper. They weren’t checking anything. You could have scribbled. You know, Fred Flinstone, one there,
[00:23:21] Donyetta: [00:23:21] quarantine that you’re supposed to do for 14 days.
[00:23:23] Is it like a self enforced? Quarantee are they saying, when you leave this airport, you need to quarantine for 14 days because you’ve been out of the country?
[00:23:31] Kim: [00:23:31] No, because you’ve been in like a hot
[00:23:33] Donyetta: [00:23:33] spot. Yeah. Uh, well that makes no sense because then you’re coming through the airport and I’m like, whatever you do.
[00:23:43] What’s that from the time you get to the airport, back to your house, like that’s a lot of contact in germs. Nothing
[00:23:49] Kim: [00:23:49] that makes nothing makes any sense. I don’t get it. I don’t understand this country. Like just nothing makes any sense, but
[00:23:58] Donyetta: [00:23:58] so they’ve [00:24:00] removed this 14 days. Self-induced, uh, or enforced rather quarantine that you’re supposed to do if you visit like a hotspot.
[00:24:08] So now what we’re just all out here supposed to fend for it. Like this is like game of Thrones, live it out best life like winter and winter literally is coming. And we out here acting a plum fool,
[00:24:22] Kim: [00:24:22] like a cotton picking bull. And you know, I followed this girl on, um, YouTube. Her name is Tamara. Her app is tomorrow and she just moved to Paris.
[00:24:35] Like a couple months ago in Paris, Paris was open. Like they were. Getting dinner every night. They were like, no, man, but now Paris requires you to wear a mask outside. You can’t even walk outside without a mask. So yeah, their cases have started to go up. So they’re tightening, you know, their restrictions again.
[00:24:59] It’s crazy.
[00:25:00] [00:24:59] Donyetta: [00:24:59] Meanwhile, here in the U S have a, the governors. Tries to Sue the mayor of Atlanta. If she says that it’s a requirement to wear mask. Um, cause that was totally against what he said that we have to do. So say that out loud, three times people. And let me know if that makes sense.
[00:25:18] Kim: [00:25:18] And Atlanta y’all down.
[00:25:19] They had just live in. Listen, every time I went to the supermarket, I left the supermarket because
[00:25:27] Donyetta: [00:25:27] it’s
[00:25:28] Kim: [00:25:28] like the mask is either on the chin. It’s not on the face at all.
[00:25:33] Donyetta: [00:25:33] This is true. This is true. Now you’re acting like his freak Neek
[00:25:39] Kim: [00:25:39] and the rest of rods open, like the park everything’s path. I’m like, what, what are y’all doing?
[00:25:46] Donyetta: [00:25:46] there’s a strip club now for me, if I were to drive by there and I have, um, like if it’s like 10 o’clock at night. Wow. Is the parking lot full? What are y’all doing? Are you going to lap dance and social distancing? Tell me say that out [00:26:00] loud, three times people let me know how that works.
[00:26:03] Kim: [00:26:03] Cause y’all not.
[00:26:04] Donyetta: [00:26:04] people just no to the strip club during the pandemic, like
[00:26:09] Kim: [00:26:09] they just don’t let me get a sip of my whiskey.
[00:26:13] Donyetta: [00:26:13] They stressing you out.
[00:26:14] Kim: [00:26:14] I just don’t care. Like, I don’t know if I’m calling back to Atlanta, man. And I have someone posts come
[00:26:21] Donyetta: [00:26:21] back,
[00:26:22] Kim: [00:26:22] but I read a post. I don’t know if it’s true or not, but Atlanta had one of the highest numbers this week of cases last week that
[00:26:32] Donyetta: [00:26:32] I believe it.
[00:26:35] Kim: [00:26:35] So yeah, I might have to stay up North for a little while.
[00:26:40] Donyetta: [00:26:40] So how the Annette, I think about it, you’ve been getting lurked on and other places too, because haven’t people been commenting on your travel video. So if you’re not familiar, Kim has a YouTube channel straight Kim, right?
[00:26:53] Kim: [00:26:53] And you
[00:26:53] Donyetta: [00:26:53] document like your life, you do your running journal, the things that you do with your runway pie, CAS, your [00:27:00] where, your shows and your runway podcasts, and you have some travel videos.
[00:27:04] And some of those have like, started to go viral. So tell us about the trolls.
[00:27:09] Kim: [00:27:09] I did. Okay. So I’ve the only place I’ve been was canned Coon. And I been to Atlanta a couple of times, right? On those videos. People are comment and like, Did you have to leave?
[00:27:21] Donyetta: [00:27:21] Did
[00:27:21] Kim: [00:27:21] you have to leave New York? Why are you traveling during this time?
[00:27:26] Donyetta: [00:27:26] And let’s say, don’t hold on, check me, boo. Because people know you are, these are just like literally trolls, like a neuro bridge, like internet trolls,
[00:27:38] Kim: [00:27:38] they’re turtles. And then this one guy tells me, why did you take American? It cause that’s an American airlines. I like felt like I liked Delta better. JIRA Kobe.
[00:27:48] Cause I was right. A dye American, like I always took American, but during
[00:27:52] Donyetta: [00:27:52] cold Delta airlines.
[00:27:54] Kim: [00:27:54] Yeah. Kobe like Delta airlines, they are like on point. You know, American is [00:28:00] like stuffing their flights, Delta airlines, the middle C is free. You know, I
[00:28:04] Donyetta: [00:28:04] think Delta airlines, it’s always on point and they’re based here in Atlanta.
[00:28:10] Kim: [00:28:10] Wait, this one guy says, why, why are you taking American anyway? They’re the worst you should have took jet blue. I’m like Jeff
[00:28:16] Donyetta: [00:28:16] blue
[00:28:20] equivalent of taking spirit airlines. Oh, look, I didn’t say that. I don’t like to count anybody’s coins and I’ve taken spirit airlines before, but when I tell you that it’s the soul plane of airlines.
[00:28:35] Kim: [00:28:35] Listen, I have to experiment one time for my grandmother’s funeral because they were the cheapest last minute flight.
[00:28:42] When I tell you my knees were on the seat in front of me. Okay. I could not. That was the worst flight. They don’t give you any water. Nope. They try
[00:28:52] Donyetta: [00:28:52] recline your seat at all. There’s the seat didn’t have a
[00:28:55] Kim: [00:28:55] tray on the back. It’s the littlest show you’ve ever seen. They
[00:28:58] Donyetta: [00:28:58] charge petite. [00:29:00] They
[00:29:00] Kim: [00:29:00] charge you.
[00:29:00] Donyetta: [00:29:00] It’s like the Kevin Hart of trays, the shade of it all.
[00:29:09] Kim: [00:29:09] So you going to leave Kevin Hart alone?
[00:29:11] Donyetta: [00:29:11] His buddy, but he put T he know he petite.
[00:29:13] Kim: [00:29:13] He’s like five, four, I think. And
[00:29:17] Donyetta: [00:29:17] I’m five, five and a half. Remember if I filed it, bro. So yeah, like if I put on some shoes, his wife, I think is taller than him. She is, she’s told it to him less than the heart. Somebody asked you, why did you not fly jet blue?
[00:29:31] That had to be a jet blue employee. I don’t know nobody out here. Who’s taking selfies at the gate, talking about I’m flying jet blue. Like they don’t want nobody to know.
[00:29:39] Kim: [00:29:39] They don’t even have business or first class. You can only get like their mint service when you go West coast.
[00:29:45] Donyetta: [00:29:45] Like, so like everybody gotta be like in the stable with the cattle.
[00:29:48] No matter one
[00:29:49] Kim: [00:29:49] class it’s like Southwest one class.
[00:29:53] Donyetta: [00:29:53] All right. Look, I got upgraded. So like I have a, the Delta airlines, American express. And so like I’m racking up [00:30:00] those points while I was COVID. So I got upgraded to first class when I went to Jamaica. Uh, I went at the beginning of this year in January.
[00:30:09] Better me to tell y’all how I act like I am. I had arrived. . They send me a meal and, you know, I was just like watching everybody else, like, so I didn’t act like I knew what I was doing. I didn’t know what I was. He gave me up a warm towel to like, Wipe my hands off and they made me like a makeshift tablecloth and I was like, yes, I would like Ivanka tonic.
[00:30:34] I ain’t been back in first class a couple of
[00:30:37] Kim: [00:30:37] years ago and me and Cody went to Kia code. I upgraded us going and we flew business class going. And, you know, they give you the food, you get the booze before you take off and well, on our way back, we would coach. And he was like, what’s this? I’m like, this is your life.
[00:30:53] Donyetta: [00:30:53] We
[00:30:54] Kim: [00:30:54] fly
[00:30:55] Donyetta: [00:30:55] with the person who went to Jamaica with me. I’m not [00:31:00] telling y’all who, cause y’all just knows you for no damn reason. So the person who went to Jamaica with me, he was not upgraded to first class. And so on the way back.
[00:31:13] Shady look, I had my tour. I had my time for a shade song and I was like, by peasants, I’ll see you guys. And he said he could literally smell our food as they were serving it to us at the back of the plane. I was like, yeah. So I guess that was a bit of information. I said it wasn’t here. Woo, woo Kim. They
[00:31:39] Kim: [00:31:39] don’t say the win, the win.
[00:31:42] And you win. Mmm.
[00:31:46] So yeah, listen, people don’t be down in people because they are traveling right now. As long as you take the necessary health precautions and you know, you’re being safe. Like I don’t go nowhere else. I go out to run [00:32:00] and I’m home shit. I to, it was my birthday. I wanted to. You know, go out and do something.
[00:32:06] Cause I haven’t done nothing since March, just like everybody else. So,
[00:32:10] Donyetta: [00:32:10] but you know, that means you made it right? Cause like people are only trolling your social media and starting to like lurk and copy you because they care like go read his comments. She got nothing but trolls.
[00:32:26] Hey. You imagine it, boom. People be copy and be, I say all of them, you made it.
[00:32:37] Kim: [00:32:37] Y’all gonna stay off my page.
[00:32:39] Donyetta: [00:32:39] They Dana, it’s just going to get worse. Especially when we moved to Hollywood because Oprah magazine reposted my tectonics. So we packed our bags up and go to Hollywood. They really going to be trolling.
[00:32:51] Kim: [00:32:51] I’m gonna need you to put one at all. Tyler,
[00:32:53] Donyetta: [00:32:53] what else
[00:32:53] Kim: [00:32:53] takes off on the Le Twins page? So we could go viral too.
[00:32:58] Donyetta: [00:32:58] You know what? I [00:33:00] might do it in the morning. Tyler, we’re on a first name basis, mr. Parents, Tyler. Um, tomorrow I’m coming by for lunch. Um, I love shellfish with drawn butter. Any type of shelf is just fine.
[00:33:13] And I like Prosecco. So I’ll see you about 1130 ish. We’ll do an early lunch. Okay.
[00:33:18] Kim: [00:33:18] Okay. I’m coming to shoot. I be under the red eye, they know right out to Atlanta, but I’ll be there.
[00:33:24] Donyetta: [00:33:24] Yes. That’s going to be some more people come in. You went to eat shellfish.
[00:33:31] Well, let’s see what else we got here. Pay disparities among black influences. So. Uh, I talked about this a little bit on the runway podcast, which is Kim’s podcast, where she talks, uh, things as it relates to runners. And I was on her show because I am a runner getting into content creation. And so when I spoke about shadow banning, I talked about [00:34:00] how there is a, um, alleged on an accusation that Instagram.
[00:34:06] Suppresses the material of, um, a certain sexual orientation, uh, females and, uh, the black population. So now we have this information and we do all believe that to be true. I’m going to, I’m talking about it again. So I might get shadow banned again on this, the grill. We’ll see. But. Something we’ve all known.
[00:34:31] Is that in corporate America or in the workforce in general women and African Americans, I’m gonna say black people, women and black people are not paid as much as, especially white men and or white women. And so there is a face at Instagram page that is dedicated to I’m letting you know what people get.
[00:34:55] If you’re a content creator, what you get as an offer for producing content. [00:35:00] So if you don’t know what a content creator is, cam and are considered content creators, we create content for your consumption. So a YouTube video is content. Anything that we were to post on our Instagrams or content. This podcast is content well, black women.
[00:35:17] Are not getting paid as much as white women and white men to produce content. And we’re talking about like your organizations that are providing thousands on thousands of dollars to some content creators. Like they have the big bucks and they can’t pay you, but they choose not to. And they low ball you because of the color of your skin.
[00:35:37] So Kim, what do you have? You had an instance where, you know, somebody was low balling you for something they wanted you to like run an ad for them or promote their products. Something like that.
[00:35:47] Kim: [00:35:47] Lately. I have been getting a lot of requests. Too.
[00:35:52] Donyetta: [00:35:52] Cause you made it. I
[00:35:53] Kim: [00:35:53] told you, you didn’t make it. You get a little thousand, your video in here, come them, [00:36:00] Hey, come to the request.
[00:36:02] But yeah, most of these companies, you know, they’ll email you and say, Hey, you know, would you, we want to send you some product for you to post about. And I always reply, well, what’s your budget for this? Promotions. And when, yeah, when they say it’s no budget, I say, you know, I’m not, I can’t work with you at that.
[00:36:20] I’m not working. I’m afraid. You know, I’m not some superstar influence. I’m just a little, a little little me, but I work for myself or for you. I’m not working for you for free and
[00:36:31] Donyetta: [00:36:31] less
[00:36:32] Kim: [00:36:32] and less. The product is a product that I already use and I can use now. I’ll do it maybe, but no, I’m not doing any.
[00:36:42] Promotion. I mean, you have to do some promotion courageous to start, but if it’s a product that I don’t use, I don’t believe in it. I’m not promoting it. No,
[00:36:53] Donyetta: [00:36:53] I have only started content creation. During COVID. So I’d probably say I got started [00:37:00] around April and I have had somebody like, in all of these people reach out to me.
[00:37:03] I’m not reaching out to them, looking for a partnership. I’ve had a, um, a black female on hair, product company. She sent me a free sample of her hair product because she’d won it to see if I liked it. Um, and I did. And so when I got it in the mail, I told her that I liked it. She asked me what my engagement was.
[00:37:23] And my engagement right now is off the chain because I don’t have a lot of followers. So your engagement is like the percentage of people who like your photos compared to the percentage of people who follow you. So the smaller your follower account is then typically your engagement is going to be a higher percentage because you’re filtering out spam accounts, people who just follow you, just because.
[00:37:46] Like right now, most of the people who follow me typically probably know me or they like something about me. So I told her that I liked the hair product. And then she was like, after I gave her like my, um, my media [00:38:00] sheet until her, her mind, my engagement rates and my follower account, blah, blah, blah. She told me that she wasn’t paying for, you know, anything that she wanted me to do for her, but I would get exposure.
[00:38:12] Because she has so many followers on Pinterest, so many followers on Instagram. And so, and I was like, but you found me because you saw that my likes were popping. I don’t need, I don’t need your exposure. I promise I don’t
[00:38:26] Kim: [00:38:26] listen. These companies can post you or they want that doesn’t mean that other people are gonna follow you back and add all your content
[00:38:36] Donyetta: [00:38:36] at Austin.
[00:38:38] Um, I’ve had one of the, uh, eyeglasses, the companies that you see, um, on social specifically Instagram. So there’s a few like eyeglass companies that you’ll see on Instagram. One of those companies reached out to me. They wanted me to do a change of outfits for five different pairs of glasses. And a YouTube video.
[00:38:59] Do you [00:39:00] know how much they wanted to pay me? Seven. If I was going to say a hundred
[00:39:09] and I told them at a minimum, cause you don’t think about it. Like everything that I have to do, this is prep. I have to put on makeup. I have to feel I’ve spent money on this ring light. I got the latest and greatest iPhone. I got a lapel mic. So at a minimum, it’s going to take me from there time. It takes me to get dressed for a video and finish editing.
[00:39:32] It. That’s like six hours right there. You telling me that y’all trying to pay me per hour. What I used to make and McKnight, I was in high school. The devil is a liar.
[00:39:42] Kim: [00:39:42] And you know what? These companies have the budget. Okay.
[00:39:47] Donyetta: [00:39:47] They
[00:39:47] Kim: [00:39:47] especially big companies. Yeah. So when you go on that influencer page, let me pull it up.
[00:39:52] It’s influencer pay gap, and you will see like some of these companies are paying these influencers [00:40:00] five, 10, 15, $20,000 for campaigns for one post. One post and they’ll pay one influencer and amount and they’ll offer the another influencer product without payment. So there is definitely
[00:40:16] Donyetta: [00:40:16] this, it says Kylie Jenner gets 1.2 million per Instagram posts.
[00:40:23] One of those tic talkers, some of the white tic talkers, they are millionaires. Whereas you have some of the black tick talkers that I constantly see. They don’t even have a blue check by their name yet,
[00:40:33] Kim: [00:40:33] which makes no sense. I don’t understand it,
[00:40:36] Donyetta: [00:40:36] but their, their stuff has gone viral.
[00:40:39] Kim: [00:40:39] We can’t win.
[00:40:45] Donyetta: [00:40:45] I don’t have any more comments.
[00:40:50] No, my throat really does need to be calm.
[00:40:53] Kim: [00:40:53] Okay. So versus Brandy and Monica is coming up.
[00:41:01] [00:41:00] Donyetta: [00:41:01] Okay. It’s just
[00:41:02] Kim: [00:41:02] one
[00:41:03] Donyetta: [00:41:03] Monica or tea. So when the boy is mine came out. First of all. Who do you feel like won in that video? Cause I feel like, you know, the sassy newness of who’s part of the song that you sing when the boy’s mom was on the radio.
[00:41:19] Who’s part, did you sing?
[00:41:26] I think I succinct Brandy because Brandy got the last word natural. So I used to say Brandy’s part cause she got the last word. Boom.
[00:41:36] Kim: [00:41:36] Um, I don’t, I don’t really think Brandy or Monica are the best singers.
[00:41:46] Donyetta: [00:41:46] Wait a minute. That’s my rewind sign.
[00:41:52] Kim: [00:41:52] There are no Mariah Houston
[00:41:55] Donyetta: [00:41:55] taking your black car. You cannot come to the cookout. Saying [00:42:00] stuff like this, come
[00:42:01] Kim: [00:42:01] on, Brandy and Monica, they can’t even hit any high notes. They’re like,
[00:42:06] Donyetta: [00:42:06] my gosh. How am I mule my mule. They
[00:42:11] Kim: [00:42:11] do a lot of rifting. Uh,
[00:42:18] Donyetta: [00:42:18] you know what? Next thing you gonna tell me is that BRC is not the greatest of all times.
[00:42:24] Kim: [00:42:24] Hold the stop now. Queen bee reign Supreme. Okay. Queen bee.
[00:42:30] Donyetta: [00:42:30] It’s the best of all. While Kim said that neither Brandy or Monica could say
[00:42:36] Kim: [00:42:36] shit. I mean, they can, they’re like
[00:42:40] Donyetta: [00:42:40] they both kill. So let’s hold, let’s put a pin in that.
[00:42:47] Monica and Brandy are having a versus, so they’re sort of going to be battling each other on Instagram Monday. I think it’s 8:00 PM Eastern standard time. So the day that you guys hear this podcast, cause y’all gonna listen to it on [00:43:00] the day that it drops true later that look you better later that night, uh, Brandy and Monica are gonna do a versus, um, where they are going to go live on social media and.
[00:43:15] Just like play their greatest hits. Kill has said that neither one of them can say,
[00:43:21] Kim: [00:43:21] I mean, they have some hits, they have some bops that’s um, you know, we can debate that.
[00:43:28] Donyetta: [00:43:28] Kim said they have some, like Britney had a motor to eat to the, and then what was the other show? She went on the parkers kill. They moved.
[00:43:42] Huh? Yeah,
[00:43:46] Kim: [00:43:46] no, I don’t think like if you would, if you were right, the top singers of our generation of the nineties, Brandy and Monica and that one of
[00:43:55] Donyetta: [00:43:55] them. Okay. So [00:44:00] top singers of our generation, like name five. Cause I can’t even do 10. I don’t think. Okay. Name five. I’ll see if I can think of some,
[00:44:06] Kim: [00:44:06] I can’t even name five.
[00:44:09] Donyetta: [00:44:09] In the nineties or can it be from 81, which is when we were born too. 2003, look when we probably would’ve finished college
[00:44:19] Kim: [00:44:19] talking about Hitmakers like Mary, like Mary got them hits. I saw Mary in concert last summer and we put like, we were up the whole time, but I don’t think Mary
[00:44:32] She was she’s like,
[00:44:34] Donyetta: [00:44:34] yeah, puppet,
[00:44:36] Kim: [00:44:36] Mary has hit, let me say, but she’s not the best thing or either
[00:44:42] Donyetta: [00:44:42] are we keeping it just RNB?
[00:44:43] Kim: [00:44:43] Yeah. RMB. I
[00:44:45] Donyetta: [00:44:45] was like, you got from 81 to like 2003,
[00:44:49] Kim: [00:44:49] right? Yeah. Yeah.
[00:44:51] Donyetta: [00:44:51] It’s Whitney
[00:44:52] Kim: [00:44:52] Whitney of course before like pre crack Whitney.
[00:44:56] Donyetta: [00:44:56] Oh, Jesus crack is what
[00:44:57] Kim: [00:44:57] the recipe recipe at me.
[00:45:00] [00:45:00] Donyetta: [00:45:00] Well, hold on.
[00:45:01] If we’re doing, like, if we’re going to throw people, are we talking about, when did Whitney get established?
[00:45:07] Kim: [00:45:07] Whitney is the, like the late yeah. Eighties, but her hits were in the night.
[00:45:12] Donyetta: [00:45:12] Let me tell you did y’all have four H in New York
[00:45:15] Kim: [00:45:15] what’s that?
[00:45:18] Donyetta: [00:45:18] Uh, for ages, like, I don’t know how to, it’s sort of like, I would put it along the lines of like girl Scouts and boy Scouts, but we have four H in school and I remember we had a talent show in the sixth grade.
[00:45:34] See, this is how come my mom and daddy sent me up for failure. Do you know what song I sung in the sixth grade talent show? Right? Saving all my love for you. If that ain’t a damn song about a woman sleeping with a married man. So I’m performing in front of my teachers. Cause I was a solo act. Even back then, I knew I was going to be a star and I’m like, cause tonight is the night [00:46:00] looking like all pump fool talking about some, you got your family and they need you there.
[00:46:05] And my mom never like, was like, Daniela don’t sing that song. She was like, daddy.
[00:46:14] So, okay. Let me think. If we’re talking about, do we want to do the eighties too? Or do we want to just do the nineties?
[00:46:21] Kim: [00:46:21] We were like two in the eighties. Who were you going to? Pitt?
[00:46:25] Donyetta: [00:46:25] Michael Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey.
[00:46:34] Who else?
[00:46:36] Kim: [00:46:36] I think like Whitney and Mariah. Is it, there are too many great singers. Okay. Hold a note. Okay. Lola
[00:46:45] Donyetta: [00:46:45] Whitney, Michael Marotta
[00:46:46] Kim: [00:46:46] had to be black, but I used to love me. Some Christina Avalara and Brittany Spears. Britney Spears can sing. She can’t hold a doggone note. She’s the queen of lip sing and she could dance.
[00:47:00] [00:46:59] Donyetta: [00:46:59] Yeah. Janet
[00:47:02] Kim: [00:47:02] Jackson and Jackson can not sing girl. Contrived. She is the worst app. She is like Alicia keys. I saw Alicia keys in concert.
[00:47:12] Donyetta: [00:47:12] Oh, Whoa, Whoa. Oh my goodness. It
[00:47:19] Kim: [00:47:19] was Alicia keys, Missy Elliott and Beyonce and Alicia keys. This was like a first album, worst performer I’ve ever seen in my life. She was terrible.
[00:47:33] That’s terrible.
[00:47:34] Donyetta: [00:47:34] Oh, well she does it well, when I think of my childhood, like, and I think of good music, she has hits. There’s
[00:47:43] Kim: [00:47:43] no doubt about it, but I’m saying who can hold a note? Who can sang like Alicia,
[00:47:49] Donyetta: [00:47:49] by the time we got to college, like groups were big. So like drew Hill Destiny’s child, like when they had the original forum members, Destiny’s child.
[00:47:58] Drew Hill and [00:48:00] seeing bad boys, the men,
[00:48:02] Kim: [00:48:02] boys to men once. Wow. Cue from one swell.
[00:48:06] Donyetta: [00:48:06] Well, she said Q from one 12, the group is white 12 Kim. So we already know who you are. No, but the rest
[00:48:15] Kim: [00:48:15] of them can’t really sing, like cue it. What’s that other one? Oh, no. I meant slam. I miss
[00:48:21] Donyetta: [00:48:21] Lim. The S the L the M by the way, jab.
[00:48:28] Kim: [00:48:28] Okay, wait. So it was, it was slim and cue the main singer. It’s
[00:48:36] Donyetta: [00:48:36] the S the air. And then Cisco broke out at about freshman, sophomore year, and he kinda looked at dong song.
[00:48:49] Juvenile. And I’m like cash money records when they was taken over for the nine, nine and 2000. That was big. The yang to us would have been big about the 99 early two thousands luck.
[00:49:00] [00:48:59] Kim: [00:48:59] I love Ali and God rest her. That’s all. But she wasn’t the best thing to read there, but she had some hits.
[00:49:06] Donyetta: [00:49:06] Can I say I hate rock the boat, but I do remember it’s like one of those things.
[00:49:14] Oh my God. Yeah. Only. I’m not even gonna say why y’all like that song,
[00:49:19] Kim: [00:49:19] the middle where the middle changed
[00:49:22] Donyetta: [00:49:22] position. Listen, when y’all watch this video or see my face, it’s like,
[00:49:30] Kim: [00:49:30] and she sees me dancing. I ride my change position,
[00:49:33] Donyetta: [00:49:33] new. I do not like that song. Um, and that was her last piece of work and God bless it.
[00:49:42] Kim: [00:49:42] GM rock the boat. I used to love Alia.
[00:49:45] Donyetta: [00:49:45] Hmm. Mm. Look O R Kelly. So we can, can we separate the man from his actions? Like his music from his personal life?
[00:49:56] Kim: [00:49:56] Kelly Kasane
[00:49:58] Donyetta: [00:49:58] R our would have [00:50:00] been big in high school. Remember you remind me of my cheat.
[00:50:07] Kim: [00:50:07] Listen, R Kelly cussing. He was the nineties.
[00:50:12] Donyetta: [00:50:12] It comes in a kit just so much. Goodness. He’ll be frequent looking natural Tigo bit is in. See y’all so, yeah, that is what I remember about childhood. And then groups like silk feeling love in me.

[00:51:21] Now we forgot about Kaia isolate as pop yo like this shaky body don’t stop. Don’t miss, just,

[00:52:28] Kim: [00:52:28] talking
[00:52:28] Donyetta: [00:52:28] about?
[00:52:29] Kim: [00:52:29] Brands here, Monica, we just went like all the way left
[00:52:34] Donyetta: [00:52:34] because you came with this, asked for me and got uninvited to the cookout.
[00:52:38] You don’t talk about Janet Jackson. You said Brandy and Monica, can’t say so. I sang Brandy’s part and the boy is mine that came on the radio. That’s the part I sang, but I think I liked Monica more.
[00:52:51] Kim: [00:52:51] I like Monica cause Brandon’s a little sneaky ass, you know? So I
[00:52:59] she had [00:53:00] that kid with a guy and then they weren’t married and they lied about being married and they had the reality show saying they were married and they weren’t married.
[00:53:08] Donyetta: [00:53:08] You remember, she used to date wine. Yay. And he was a lot older than her. Mm. Long, only broken heart
[00:53:16] Kim: [00:53:16] song, but yeah, I mean, he’s like Monica, so Monica was fly, right?
[00:53:22] Donyetta: [00:53:22] Monica. She had the short haircut, she was doing thing, but you know what? I ain’t going to lie at, like, I ain’t gonna get braced like Brandy. True.
[00:53:32] Kim: [00:53:32] Look, I’ll be rocking my twist. She used to wear braids all the time, but. Brandy had the fly,
[00:53:37] Donyetta: [00:53:37] that dance move from dad, like she was throwing up blood signs that gangs,
[00:53:44] Kim: [00:53:44] I used to love.
[00:53:45] Donyetta: [00:53:45] I love
[00:53:46] Kim: [00:53:46] we had some good music in the nineties.
[00:53:51] Donyetta: [00:53:51] So who do you think is going to win the verses?
[00:53:55] Kim: [00:53:55] I think Monica has more hits, right?
[00:54:00] [00:53:59] Donyetta: [00:53:59] I don’t know because Brady’s kept going. Cause like even I ain’t even got a FRA, I ain’t even got a laugh. I remember she had that song with Mason nonstop. She dated may students.
[00:54:11] Kim: [00:54:11] and Brandy got him around.
[00:54:12] Donyetta: [00:54:12] They dated.
[00:54:18] Well, there is no slut. Shaming, all Le Twins
[00:54:21] Kim: [00:54:21] experienced bad bread bread.
[00:54:23] Donyetta: [00:54:23] Let’s see
[00:54:25] Kim: [00:54:25] definitive the music.
[00:54:28] Donyetta: [00:54:28] Remember she went to the prom with Toby
[00:54:31] Kim: [00:54:31] and you know, they say more than go to the dog on prom.
[00:54:38] Donyetta: [00:54:38] come get you as Brandy. Go ahead, girl.
[00:54:44] Uh, so anyway, she’s like,
[00:54:49] Kim: [00:54:49] shoot, she’s like the guys do it. I can do it to shoot you go Brandy.
[00:54:55] Donyetta: [00:54:55] Yeah. Anyway, I [00:55:00] think I am going, Ooh. I think I might like Monica more, but I think Brandy’s gonna win
[00:55:05] Kim: [00:55:05] Monica.
[00:55:08] Donyetta: [00:55:08] All right. So we’re going to tell y’all the verdict on the next show. We’ll see. Brandy versus Monica. The boy is mine.
[00:55:18] That probably would be the song they either opened up with or in with that one, they had another one. They did, they did another song together. It all belongs to me. You remember that song? It is pretty much, it was, it’s sort of like Beyonce is irreplaceable. They’re telling this guy to get out, but it all belongs to me.
[00:55:38] Like them shoes, the air pod don’t, don’t take none of that stuff. Booboo. I bought that. Just get your box that you came with and
[00:55:47] Kim: [00:55:47] screws are gonna know how much coins they get an and duties versus. Cause you know, it’s they
[00:55:51] Donyetta: [00:55:51] do. They get paid.
[00:55:52] Kim: [00:55:52] They must because they stream it on Apple music
[00:55:56] Donyetta: [00:55:56] beyond say, God, dang.
[00:55:59] They, I [00:56:00] said, this is how much I love you. I talk about you when I’m just not even supposed to be. Um, Brandy has a new album out. Doesn’t she?
[00:56:07] Kim: [00:56:07] I downloaded it, but I haven’t widened download it cause I don’t pay for music anymore. You know, it’s on my,
[00:56:13] Donyetta: [00:56:13] wait, wait,
[00:56:14] Kim: [00:56:14] what? It’s on my screen. It’s on my free Spotify to listen to listen.
[00:56:19] Donyetta: [00:56:19] Let me see.
[00:56:20] Kim: [00:56:20] I’m not paying for music
[00:56:21] Donyetta: [00:56:21] and I get on my nerves.
[00:56:24] Kim: [00:56:24] I don’t have any. I don’t listen to enough music to pay a monthly subs. Like I was paying and I was going into the app like once a month, maybe
[00:56:35] Donyetta: [00:56:35] wait, wait, wait, is Brandy’s album called? .
[00:56:38] Kim: [00:56:38] She looks like Egypt,
[00:56:40] Donyetta: [00:56:40] Waka Flocka, flame, like scandal B seven.
[00:56:44] Kim: [00:56:44] Is that her seventh
[00:56:45] Donyetta: [00:56:45] album? Do you remember scandal? Like where they always used to take people where Olivia Pope’s that work was be seven. Like what? In the Waka Flocka flame. God, I
[00:56:55] Kim: [00:56:55] forgot about scandal.
[00:56:58] Donyetta: [00:56:58] Yeah. B seven is where [00:57:00] Jake?
[00:57:00] Kim: [00:57:00] No,
[00:57:04] Donyetta: [00:57:04] like a vitamin
[00:57:06] Kim: [00:57:06] B six vitamin,
[00:57:09] Donyetta: [00:57:09] I don’t know, beats swell. Let me see scandal
[00:57:13] Kim: [00:57:13] 16. I’m
[00:57:15] Donyetta: [00:57:15] a type of skin. It’s be 13. We got that all wrong, but we almost 40 give us a break. Be 13. I still don’t like B seven, B seven. Sound like a vitamin. I don’t like it.
[00:57:36] Kim: [00:57:36] Yeah. Yeah. I heard a little bit, a little bit of, y’all heard, what am I saying?
[00:57:45] Donyetta: [00:57:45] I’m gonna leave this part when I do, when I edit this, I believe this part is
[00:57:51] let liquor, y’all gonna see kids drinking well y’all has started to kick in it is Brown and ice [00:58:00] cube in it.
[00:58:00] Kim: [00:58:00] Let me show them my bottle. That’ll show my husband when I keep my secret stash. Y’all,
[00:58:06] Donyetta: [00:58:06] you know, he follows the Instagram account. Right.
[00:58:09] Kim: [00:58:09] So put this as a preview.
[00:58:15] Donyetta: [00:58:15] Okay.
[00:58:17] Kim: [00:58:17] Now y’all y’all know what that means. When you hear the throat clear. Some bullshit.
[00:58:27] Donyetta: [00:58:27] This is petty. This is a little bit, I mean, you know, just a little bit, can we talk about how Instagram is trying to kill tick tock? Like they did Snapchat?
[00:58:38] Kim: [00:58:38] Cause I will tell you as soon as if the girl stories came out, I never went back to Snapchat
[00:58:45] Donyetta: [00:58:45] again.
[00:58:47] Kim: [00:58:47] Never.
[00:58:49] Donyetta: [00:58:49] I don’t even go to use the filters.
[00:58:51] Kim: [00:58:51] Don’t need them.
[00:58:53] Donyetta: [00:58:53] So for those of you who don’t know, Instagram has introduced something within the last, what two, three weeks called [00:59:00] Reelz, R E E L S. And they are nothing. Then tick tock videos that you can now post on Instagram. So the president has said that he was going to try to ban tick tock. From the U S of a, I don’t think he can legally do that.
[00:59:18] That’s not what we’re going to talk about right now, but it’s the ground, which is the King petty. Cause it’s also owned by the same people who own Facebook. We’re not even gonna say that person’s name,
[00:59:29] Kim: [00:59:29] but WhatsApp.
[00:59:32] Donyetta: [00:59:32] Oh, I didn’t know that WhatsApp too. Like they have introduced something that is pretty much tick tock.
[00:59:39] So let me tell y’all what Damietta does. So all them little videos y’all was cockeyed kid about on tick tock. I had made now Nan nary, near new ones. I just posted on Instagram and it’s taken off. Hi, there’s nothing new on my part, but everybody’s acting like it’s just like this new, like the shit doesn’t stink, like new thing,
[01:00:00] [01:00:00] Kim: [01:00:00] because people like me are not on tick tock.
[01:00:05] Donyetta: [01:00:05] Take time. You just claim you don’t know how to
[01:00:07] Kim: [01:00:07] use, but I don’t go, Oh, I like it. If I get a notification that you posted a video, I’ll go look at it, but that’s it. Like I don’t sit there and. Scroll and see what’s happening. Cause ashes, I have enough social networks on my plate. Like I can’t, I can’t with tech talk, but the reels it’s like write an Instagram.
[01:00:26] Donyetta: [01:00:26] I need to post a tick tock. Tick tock career is plummeting because I’m over here acting like when Dave Chappelle didn’t want to do today, Chappelle show anymore. And y’all, I’m not posting new tic-tacs, but I’m over here getting famous on Instagram. Cause I’m posting my tick tots on Instagram. How does
[01:00:42] Kim: [01:00:42] that work?
[01:00:44] You might as well just come on over to Instagram and do the reels because,
[01:00:49] Donyetta: [01:00:49] but Instagram doesn’t have all the features that take TOK has. So like take tag has audio that I could use. So like a lot of that stuff that you saw that I did on tick-tock it was [01:01:00] voiceovers like Instagram doesn’t necessarily like have.
[01:01:02] Those voiceovers embedded in it. Um, so me and a friend of mine, Kathy, we do like a lot of, uh, current Clayborne voiceovers. I don’t believe those are in Instagram for us to do the transitions aren’t up to par yet. Um, but I will say like now that I’ve been posting reels, I hate this. So I used to be the person that I would respond and comment.
[01:01:27] Um, I would like, and comment to every comment that people left. I can’t not do that anymore. Now that I’ve posted reels. Like, I think I showed you when you were here, cam like every time I open my phone, even if it’s like within a five minute period, I got like a hundred new likes because Instagram was pushing these reels.
[01:01:44] So I want y’all who had posted reels to tell me if you’re in feed posts are getting as much traction as a reels.
[01:01:52] Kim: [01:01:52] Hmm.
[01:01:54] Donyetta: [01:01:54] Okay. All right. I think that’s all we got.
[01:01:59] right. [01:02:00] That brings us to the end of this episode. We want to thank you for joining us
[01:02:05] Kim: [01:02:05] and we hope to see you on the next one.
