    Juneteenth and the black excellence that is Executive Producer, Jazmine Henley-Brown! Pt. 2. 

    We’re celebrating Juneteenth with more black excellence! Jazmine Henley-Brown knows where all the bodies are buried! As an executive producer she wears a lot of logistical hats, including booking and rubbing elbows with major celebrity talent! In part 2 of our conversation she tells us how her love for reality TV and pop culture informs her professional acumen, and how she never gets star-struck! She also gives some incredibly JUICY details on how creatives can get their own shows produced–from ideation to production.

    Her reality is my guilty pleasure! Pt. 1. Feat. Executive Producer, Jazmine Henley-Brown

    Her reality is my guilty pleasure! Pt. 1. Feat. Executive Producer, Jazmine Henley-Brown

    As Juneteenth approaches, let’s pause to celebrate black excellence! Fittingly, for this episode and my Juneteenth episode I have the pleasure of chatting with Executive Producer, Jazmine Henley-Brown! Jazmine serves as the EP of podcasts with Sony Music on “It’s Giving Fashion” hosted by RuPaul’s Drag Race frontrunner, Shea Coulee! And is the former executive producer for Reality with The King, with Carlos King–RHOA producer, and creator of the Love and Marriage and Belle Collective franchises–and the More Sauce podcast label at SiriusXM, where she oversaw existing shows by our favs in reality TV Porsha Williams and Tamar Braxton. Her reality is my guilty pleasure; I looove reality shows, and her podcasts are an extension of my favorite moments and celebrities in reality TV!

    "OCD was the worst thing to happen to me." Feat. 3x TEDx speaker, Shaun Flores

    "OCD was the worst thing to happen to me." Feat. 3x TEDx speaker, Shaun Flores

    WARNING: This episode discusses several triggering themes such as rape and suicide. Shaun Flores is a former high fashion model whose world changed when he began experiencing repetitive unwanted thoughts, alongside months of depression, anxiety and suicidal ideation. That period led to a surprising diagnosis of OCD. Now Shaun Flores is a 3x TEDx speaker, a mental health and OCD advocate with the International OCD Foundation. Today we talk about OCD and mental health matters co-existing with grief, and the intricacies of treatments like psychodynamic versus cognitive-behavioral therapy for OCD. This is the perfect conversation to wedge between Mental Health Awareness month and shifting our attention to black men; black fathers and sons. 

    While he says that OCD was the worse thing that ever happened to him, now Shaun is determined to be "the worst thing to happen to OCD".

    You can find and follow Shaun on Instagram and across social media @theshaunflores.

    Celebrity Hairstylist Shirley Gordon is Living Out Loud After Loss, Pt. 2

    Celebrity Hairstylist Shirley Gordon is Living Out Loud After Loss, Pt. 2

    And now, part 2 of my conversation with legendary celebrity hair stylist, Shirley Gordon. I’d reached out to Shirley to continue my series of conversations for the “Get You Outta My Hair campaign effort”. I use the intimate stylist/client relationship to convey the relief that comes with expression of feelings and emotions to a confidant, and to encourage grief support. Shirley shares her grief story as she had to live out loud as the bold and audacious stylist, while battling depression after losing one sister, then leaning on her faith to grieve another sister in a healthy way.

    You can find and follow Shirley on Instagram @shirleyghautehair.

    Celebrity Hairstylist Shirley Gordon is Living Out Loud After Loss, Pt. 1

    Celebrity Hairstylist Shirley Gordon is Living Out Loud After Loss, Pt. 1

    I am truly in the company of a legend on this episode–the legendary celebrity hair stylist, Shirley Gordon! I’d reached out to Shirley to continue my series of conversations for the "Get You Outta My Hair" campaign collaboration with stylists. Together, we are using the intimate stylist/client relationship to convey the relief that comes with expression of feelings and emotions to a confidant, and to encourage grief support.

    This conversation with Shirley is timely in so many ways–May is mental health awareness month, and May marks one year since Shirley lost her sister and brother-in-law in a very public car accident here in the DMV area, made national when it was amplified on the Real Housewives of Potomac. This is a relatable and victorious story for her community and my listeners.

    You can find and follow Shirley on Instagram @shirleyghautehair.
