Makeup has been key since the Divas have progressed into their 40s so it's natural to have a professional makeup artist on our show. The greatest part is she knows and we mean really knows makeup. Brandalyn Fulton is a Broadway make up artist and has worked on magnificent shows like The Lion King - hmmm impressive! You'll get to find out more about that on the show Saturday but for now get to know Brandalyn with these 5 Questions.
1. What book are you currently reading on your Kindle?
The Power of a Praying Wife
2. Clowns, scary or cool?
Good clowns – cool! Bad clowns – scary!
3. If you were a character in a movie who would you be?
Remember the movie 127 Hours! It is based on a true story! While I would never want to be stuck in a National Park for several days with no food or water, I am constantly reminded of this character when going through life! I want to persevere through all things just like Aron Ralston.
4. Where is the best Happy Hour in NYC?
I am usually working during “Happy Hour,” but when I am not, I love to go to a new spot around the corner from my apartment in East Harlem called Harley’s BBQ. The drinks are great and I love how it feels like the modern day Cheers!
5. What was the best part of moving from MI to NYC?
I’m still struggling with this because I get homesick at times, but the best part is pursuing my dreams for a career in TV, Fashion, Theater and hopefully soon, Film. Some of things I have accomplished, I would not be able to do if I lived in Michigan so that is the best part for me.
Visit Brandalyn on her website www.brandalynfultononline.com and see how this expert artist is not only taking her career to the next level but share in her passion for all things beauty. B stands for Beauty is HAUTE!
See you on the show Saturday 8AM EST www.blogtalkradio.com/cocktailsandconversations

If you love shoes like I do you probably like that scene in The Wedding Planner where JLo walks into her closet and every pair has a cute box and a picture of the shoe on the outside of it....YES! I replay that scene all the time...giggle. Well while I'm working on my ShoeATourium I spotted these loves and had to share them with you all.
#1 (above) - I love Jessica Simpson shoes, say what you want about her but her line is my AbFab. These little cuties are so versitale and hit my wallet for the right price of $89 on www.shoes.com.
#2 - Kimora (former BabyPhat designer) has responded to some of my random Tweets so she's officially on my Celeb Love List and she's just getting more love for these kicks found on Macys. Price $49
#3 - What girl doesn't love DSW? I think I introduced my Mini Me to it when she was like 5 and she still remembers her first experience there. Well cue the music because I just found these on their site. Lil pricy (but not for Gucci) yes but worth every dime I'll save recycling. Price $269
#4 - I like bows, I have a wedding to go to this summer. I'll be wearing purple to the wedding because of this shoe. That Is All. Oh you can find these on Zappos for $99.
#5 - They call it the "Francoise" but I call these my "Honey Let's Go On A Date" shoe. Dam he's gonna love these right before he see's the charge on his credit card. Snatch these from Nordstroms.com at the head scratching price of $395. I know I know but they are special.
Sorry for some of the SMALL pics but sites are really getting picky about what you snatch offa them. :) I've put links up for all so check them out!

1. What is your favorite wine and what region is it from?
For the summer, I'm loving roses from France. I can serve them with a slight chill and they go with everything.
2. Paper cups or Champagne Flute?
Champage flutes at home, red solo cups at the cookout, LOL!
3. Do you have a make up bag in your purse? If so what color is it?
I do, it's red and brown.
4. Who's sexier Idris Elba or Michael Ealy?
This is a tough one because they are both HOT! But that accent...Idris Elba.
5. What reality star would you outshine?
Not sure if I could outshine any of the stars of my shows like BBW or RHOA because I'm so reserved with my personal life, but I definitely think I could shine on Around the World in 80 plates. Oooh, or I could be The next Bachelorette!!
There you have it, we think the only time we'd watch The Bachelorette would be if Tanisha was on it! Join us 8AM EST #blogtalkradio for fun and cocktails with The Divas and Girl Meets Glass.

So today, I'm raising my glass to all my lady friends out there who aren't afraid to be themselves...who dare to step outside of the box, color outside the lines and who just simply dare to live by their "own" rules. YOU know who YOU are....so this one is for you!
Who would you invite to a dinner party: Robert Kiyosaki, Dave Ramsey, Suze Orman, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Atom Egoyan, all of the sharks on "Shark Tank", and John Cusack (because I have a fairly unhealthy crush on him, and he, Atom, and I need to talk about a movie we'll be producing regarding my father's life in Soviet Armenia.)
Blue jeans or sweats: Yoga pants!
If someone had morning breath at 2PM would you let them know? Depends on how much time I have to spend with them and how well I know them. If it's a friend, I have no qualms saying, "Whoo-wee! You're breath STANK!" If, however, it's a professional acquaintance, I'd probably take a breath mint and offer them one as well.
The Divas love her manners LOL
Who wins the social media battle Twitter or Facebook? Currently, the evil overlord Facebook. But I have high hopes that Diaspora will overtake the thrown.
Favorite color nail polish: Obnoxious, fire-engine red; or black. But only on my toes...I work too much with my hands and polish always ends up chipped!
Tune in this Saturday and listen to Bethany talk about successful WAH opportunities, how not to be scammed and how you can supplement your income and get your HUSTLE on. 6/9 8AM EST www.blogtalkradio.com/cocktailsandconversation.

Here is a copy of the photo and the tweet:
As an African American, I agree that Gwyneth's use of the N-word was inappropriate, and well she should know better. If not then I think Bey and Jay need to sit down and have a nice long chat with their friend and educate her. I understand that she was hyped...having a good time with her friends who happen to also be African American singing the song "Ni@*as in Paris", but come on...to have the balls to tweet that and think it was okay.....well I have two words for you sweetie - Not.Cool.
Sounds fun RT
