Dirty Martini | Week in Review

Celeb 411
Shouts out to NBA Baller Kevin Durant of the OKC Thunder for donating 1 million dollars, with help from NIKE, to those affected by the horrific tornadoes.  It was also great to hear that the National Basketball Association matched the donation.  Instead of Goin Fishing after their playoff loss this celeb is using his vacation wisely.  #CelebsGiving is always a reason to Raise Your Glass.  Still praying for all affected.

Reality Recap

The new reality series "Pastors of LA" is linking these two together.  Many will know LisaRaye but may not be as familiar with Bishop Noel Jones (also brother of Grace Jones).  Reports are surfacing that the two are involved and are playing out their relationship on the show.  Jones commented on the show that maybe Ms. LisaRaye wasn't Godly enough for him to which she matched with that maybe he wasn't worldly enough for her.  ZOINKS!  We are sure this is going to be one show we won't want to miss.  Check Oxygen for listings. 

Style Diva Adventures
This week was one of the greatest rappers that ever lived birthday.  Yep Big, Biggie Smalls, NOTORIOUS Big or Big Poppa would have been 41.  I found these videos created by David Catalano of a suburban family living the lyrics of one of Bigs greatest hits The NOTORIOUS B.I.G.  Take a click and let me know if it brings back some memories....

Miss the Show?????
On this show we did something something a little different, instead of having another fabulous guest we are switching it up a bit and giving you an inside peek at the women behind Cocktails and Conversation. In this episode we share with you why we do what we do every Saturday morning, what motivates us, and much more.  Think of it like a Diva-fied version of Inside the Actors Studio with James Lipton only it’s Erika  and Robin.
