The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) is a collaborative organization of nine historically African American, international Greek lettered fraternities and sororities.
Often referred to as ‘The Divine 9,’ the NPHC consists of Kappa Alpha Psi, Omega Psi Phi, Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, and Zeta Phi Beta, Alpha Phi Alpha, Phi Beta Sigma, Sigma Gamma Rho, and Iota Phi Theta.
NPHC issued an official statement denouncing VH1’s latest reality show, Sorority Sisters.
As leaders of the four historically African-American sororities, we are united in our belief that Sorority Sisters, which aired Monday, December 15, 2014 on VH1, poses a shameful affront to our proud legacies of service, scholarship and sisterhood.

Fantasia Barrino‘s new show premiered last night on VH1 and it had twitter all aflame. Tasia’s her older brother “Teeny” quickly became the series villain after it’s made evident that he’s merely a 30 something freeloader. Teeny has converted Tasia’s pool house into a studio that doesn’t bring in any income and even has a “girlfriend” who encourages him to test drive Ferrari’s…. *sigh*
In an effort to get Teeny off his “A”zz and out of Tasia’s pockets, her Aunt Bunny is placed on the show to put her foot down. Fantasia’s mother is in the house too, but apparently she’s just as bad as Teeny.
Way too much going on on this show. All I have to say about it is… if loving it is wrong, I don’t wanna be right.
In case you missed it, check out T.I. on VH1’s Behind the Music which aired last night. Tip talks about why he felt the need to stockpile weapons and even shows a bit of remorse for his actions. This is one of the best Behind the Music’s yet… (and yes I can admit I’m biased). Reliving all of Tip’s trials and tribulations via this episode really hit home to me and I’m almost positive I’m not the only ATLien who feels this way.
Bobby Brown has always been my favorite New Edition member. Not only was he the most charismatic, but he was the most unpredictable of them all. Yeah, Ralph may have had a soft sexy voice, Mike had that northern swagga on lock, Ricky had a nice smile and Ronnie had… well he had a nice juicy curl…But it was Bobby who kept MY attention on lock.
When Bobby and Whitney hit Atlanta back in the 90’s it was even more evident that he was the one to watch. Bombarded by legal issues concerning child support cases, D.U.I.’s, and whatever else…Bobby never left the spotlight even when he wasn’t performing. I dunno what it was about him, but I was always silently rooting for his return. While the media bashed him for ruining Whitney, I always knew in my heart that Whitney shared responsibility in that downfall.
When Whitney appeared on Oprah she seemed to blame Bobby for all her setbacks. It got me to thinking about all the times I could have blamed my ex *cough* ex(es) for the things that have gone wrong in my life. It wouldn’t have mattered. I still had to take responsibility for my own actions. I’m of the belief that the first step to moving forward is admitting that you made your own decisions and I see Whitney as seeking someone to blame.
Bobby, during his episode of VH1’s Behind The Music, didn’t blame Whitney at all for his failures. In fact, he seemed quite content in his current situation. From being flat broke after his separation Continue Reading…
