no i’m not having a “great black 90s actresses” moment.
this was something gabrielle union put up on her instagram.
she wrote the following under the break about the picture.
some people are alleging it was about the nicki minaj/iggy azalea cloudiness.
i’ll let you be the judge…
When ppl ask me how i learned to be a professional or how to navigate Hollywood and all it’s ups and downs… I always say I was lucky enough to have had guardian angel actresses like #ReginaKing @hollyrpeete @tishacampbellmartin and @tichinaarnold to show me the way, to hold my hand, to be a partner in crime, and a giver of hope and discipline… they give love… Nowadays some women seem to relish how much shade they can throw or who they can shun or getting off on watching ppl fail or flail… I’m forever grateful for these powerful dope women in my life showing me the way…My Hot mama #wcws
“I used to shrink in the presence of other dope beautiful women. I used to revel in gossip and rumors, and I lived for the negativity inflicted upon my sister actresses or anyone who I felt whose shine diminished my own.“
her words at the “essence black women in hollywood” speech.
i like gabby union.
i support “being mary jane” when it comes on bet.
i am literally counting down the next season.
….but she is always getting caught up when she has a case of amnesia.
it always makes me raise an eyebrow when she gets all “above it all”.
if she is directing that towards “you know two”,
maybe it would have been better said behind backs?
