VH1’s latest reality show controversy stems from the fact that they had the audacity to create a reality show based around women who belong to African-American sororities.
‘Sorority Sisters’ features 9 women who are members of four different Greek-letter organizations, living and socializing in Atlanta.
The series just started and many already feel that it’s missed the mark. What could have been an uplifting storyline about Black professional college grads working together, participating in community service and showing how ‘sisterhood’ actually works, is instead a basic everyday reality show showing Black woman (and one token White female) engaged in ratchet behavior.

Shocked? I don’t know why you would be. It’s been proven time and time again that positivity doesn’t work in the long run. What pays the bills is entertainment and that’s exactly what ‘Sorority Sisters’ seems to be aiming for.

Here’s what the people are saying about ‘Sorority Sisters’ online… Continue Reading…

In a statement released by CBS News, Camille writes that her “kind,” “generous” and “funny” husband is not the person the media has painted him as in light of the recent accusations.

“The story was heart-breaking, but ultimately appears to be proved untrue,” Camille wrote. “Many in the media were quick to link that story to stories about my husband — until that story unwound.”
Cosby’s daughter Evin also has a lot to say about the matter and she used her Facebook page to blast Spelman College’s decision to distance themselves from the family, who have donated millions to the Atlanta-area HBCU.
