Jesus on the main line

sometimes,
you have to jump on opportunities.
it can be scary,
but you can’t let fear dictate how you live.
i’ve lived in fear for many years of my life.
decades,
even?
that’s why when i got the following opportunity earlier this week,
i jumped on the chance.
so earlier this week.
i got a random dm that i think was “the chance”…

tmz live” found it’s way into my dms.
i wasn’t looking for them,
but they somehow found me.
so i went back and forth with the logistics,
but something in my spirit was like:

“Do it Jamari,
do it.”

as scared as i was,
i secured the date and time.

date: friday, 8/17
time: 2pm
this was all “pst” time.
i’m “est“.

the only thing is,
i was gonna be at work and i needed a conference room.
as luck would have it,
most of the conference rooms were open around 2pm.
that’s the time i take lunch too.
everything was all set.
my topic was:

foxhole,
i was scared.
scared,
i tell ya!
this is a national platform that was live.
not only that,
i have been feeling ready to reveal myself to you guys.
i’ve been doing this for over 10 years now.
it was time to make those moves.
my friends were hyping me up about being on the show,
but i was scared of “what may come?“.

once the lady said “go” as i was waiting my turn,
i felt all the fear melt away.
cheesy,
but i did.
it was like i was on auto pilot.
that’s the thing with anxiety,
it’s really just excitement that seems like fear.

after it was over,
i was shaking,
but in a good way.
it took me 10 years to get to this point.
i’m proud of my journey thus far.
so i’m going to share my experience on “tmz live” with my foxhole family.

 

i hated i didn’t have a haircut when i did that.
eh,
but good times.
i was nervous af,
but at least i made them laugh with what i had to say.

lowkey: ironically,
this all goes down on star fox’s birthday too.
happy birthday my friend.

Maybe now you can share your style photos, Better get used to the camera you may have hit your moment just right to be noticed by the mainstream media! Best of luck!

  4. To be able to put a face to all the stories I’ve read on here feels so good. Like wow. It’s outta control. I have been reading this blog for seven years and I never thought we would ever see your face. Wow and it’s so unexpected. Jamari thank you for this. I wish I could use that gif of the white man in oprah’s audience. Lol that’s exactly how I feel.
    Thank you for this and you looked great.

  5. When it’s your time, it’s your time! Wow
    Who knew your first time in public would be on such a huge platform??
    It reminds me of your post about plot twists. Who knew when you woke up that day that you’d get a dm that would bring forth such a gift?
    You sir are a cute guy with nice DSLs!!
    On a serious note, now I can read your posts with your voice

  6. You truly are the sexiest, most handsome, most attractive, alluring man that you’ve consistently portrayed yourself to be. CONGRATULATIONS on such a unique, one of a kind opportunity!! I hope this is the start of a video blogging extension of your already, wildly successful website.

  7. GO MARI… GO MARI… GO GO GO GO!!!… Wow, good shit my man, proud of ya!… I always wondered how they pick people to comment on that show… now I know u gotta be consequential and have a following… that bodes well for u sir… congrats!

  8. OMFG!!!!!! Let me start by saying congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!! This is major!!!! Major!!!!! I been following your page for years. I check this pages daily, it’s part of my routines lol. It’s so good to see your dreams coming true, and opportunities presenting. I finally made the decision to move from one dry state to a better state for opportunities, and I heard the same go! J go. I relate to so many of your life trials and tribulations so it’s definitely great to see some wins happening. 😆 EXCITED!!!!!! FOR YOU!!!!

  9. OMG I record TMZ Live everday and I saw you but it didn’t click but I have never heard you mention Harlem before.

    I just read the previous post about sharing your insecurities,insecurities btw that most if not all people have about their looks.I am so proud of you that you had the balls 😄 to go on TMZ Live because I know it’s not only seen on TV, it’s live streamed on Facebook and seen in other countries.They sometimes show people in other countries,especially people in the military commenting on stories.

    “I learned that courage was not the absence of fear,but the triumph over it.The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”- Nelson Mandela
    Thanks for sharing❤

  10. Well well well, it’s been a long time coming! And a change HAS come!

    Spotted!…On the tail end of the Summer, the Fox has finally showed his fur, on the Upper East Side of Harlem.

    Got me saying…my my my, my my my!

    {Summer is ending on a good note. Gossip Fox has been revealed!}

    “Sometimes you need to step outside, clear your head and remind yourself of who you are. And where you wanna be. And sometimes you have to venture outside your world in order to find yourself. As for me, I’m happy right where I am. I only wanna be with you. xoxo . . . Gossip Wolf”

  11. “Call Jesus on the main line”😂😂😂. Jamari, you’re a mess. It’s so nice to see your handsome face. I never thought I would see the day.

  12. Yasssssss!! This made my morning! Congrats Jamari!! After reading your posts for YEARS you deff deserve it love. Also…is it bad that I’ve always guessed that you was a Harlem fox 😂😂 I was mad hype that I was right.

  13. I remember discovering your blog about 7 years ago and I’ve been “lurking” ever since. I’m truly proud of this moment for you, a complete breakthrough of following your intuition and telling fear that “you don’t belong here!”. This felt like the final episode of Gossip Girl when it was finally revealed lol but of course BETTER. You looked and sounded beautiful and that spirit I felt through your posts over the years shined through. Without making this about myself, I recently interviewed for a new position at my Employer and it would LITERALLY change my life, I only applied by chance. Maybe the universe is speaking to all of us and saying to let our inhibitions go and we’ll be alright. Love you Jamari and I’m truly excited for what the world has in store for you!

    1. Congratulations Jamari! I am so excited and proud of you! It takes real courage to do what you have pulled off. They sky is the limit for you boo! And BTW you’re super handsome!

  14. this is good publicity and hopefully you will become a regular on the show. That funny commentary is good and will grab people. Take it, even if its small will lead to something big for everyone to see

  15. Oh wow I thought we would never see you. You are way too hard on yourself. I gotta watch it again to actually hear you speak lol. I was so shocked to see your face. Congratulations and let this be the beginning of your takeover the media landscape.

  16. Hey Jamari you did that and I am super proud of you and all your accomplishments you getting there 😍😍😍😍 just don’t switch up on us when you make it boo

    1. A random opportunity that turned out to be real. Yasssssss. I was reading thinking it was going to turn out to be a scam and it wasnt!!! Hopefully, this leads to bigger and better opportunities.

  17. Toooo excited for this next phase in your journey!!! Everything that’s coming you’ve worked extremely hard for and you deserve it x10 over 💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽

  18. So that’s what a fox looks like! I can’t believe you did it! That took balls man, and even with all the confidence that I’ve gained over the years, I don’t think that I am at that point. On another note those glasses you have cannot be pulled off by just anybody (ie 🖐🏿),but you sir have the face to pull them off quite well. And the lips! Can’t forget the lips! I like that you can hear the New Yawk in your voice. It made your comment that much better. Bet they’ll have you back with the Jesus on the main liner. Jamari gon have me out here watching TMZ, smh. But congratulations fox. Looking forward to it!

  19. I am in tears…happy tears. You’ve been on this journey for a long time and it’s all coming together. I’m just thankful I’ve been allowed to be here and witness your growth and ambition time and time again. This is your season now go claim those blessings Sir. It’s your time…YESSSSSSSSSSSSS *breaks out into Beyonce Single Ladies choreo”

  20. Yo Why am I TEARY EYED!!!!! 😭🍾🎉🎉 I’m proud of you man! I hope they Continually! Contact you! TMZ is a great media opportunity and if you were on their panel I could see you giving ACTUAL opinion without being nasty or just “talking to talk” like some of their other panel (just my opinion, does not reflect Jamari’s if your reading TMZ) but ugh jus so Happy for u! 😭….. psst 👂🏾An Now u can post on your IG page & open yourself up to Ballers sliding in those DMs!

  21. Hey J Congrats on this opportunity, but Guess What I am not ready for the big reveal LoL. I am so serious, I will not watch it at least for a little while. I have actually come to like that you are a mystery, I have this picture of you in my mind. I cant lie and say that I am not curious but coming here to the foxhole has been such a life changing experience and one of the things I love most about it is that we can have some anonymity, without judgment. Also I worry about you being known for some of the juicy stories you bring to the foxhole, dont want nobody harming you. I know we cant live in fear and in the shadows, as we so often do as Gay men, I guess I am just over protective LoL. Anyway glad you are moving in this new direction and again, I am going to look at the Big Reveal, just not right now, I want a few more days.

  22. J, FINALLY!!! You did great and congrats on the major gig!!! Hopefully this is just the beginning for you. I can see you stopping through TMZ once or twice a week with some commentary. And you looked well put together; very handsome.

  23. I deadass screamed ALOUD!!! CONGRATS!! I AM SOOOOO PROUD OF YOU!!! 2020 IS ABOUT TO BE THE YEAR OF THE FOX!!! You are truly an inspiration and I know Star Fox would be sooooo happy for you!

  24. Come on then cuteness! ❤️ I’m soooo beyond proud of you! I felt like it was my moment too! So happy to share you with the world!

  25. wow. congrats. sometimes new beginnings happen in the middle of your now. This may be the beginning of a whole new journey. I pray they keep calling you until you are in the studio with them. be sure to comment on their stories and posts so they never forget the name Jamari

  26. Woow Jamari, that’s a really big deal! Not only for your growth in your career but persoanlly as well! I’m very proud of you and excited for you and now that you’ve dipped your toes in the water, you’re open to receive more!

    I mean, you can font that you’ve been on TMZ!!! Alright now!!

    This is big!

  27. Wow!!! I hope this open some major doors for you….hopefully we get to see the Foxhole become a syndicated broadcasting blog show like TMZ in the near future. This couldn’t happen to better and good spirited individual. The Foxhole is proud of u bro.

  28. CONGRATS, Jamari Fox! So glad they approached you. You were great. Sharp, succinct, and memorable! Also thinking about your prior post about your self-perception, you’re a cutie. Keep doing your thing and if you ever have your own YouTube or TV show, I’d watch!

  29. Congratulations. All these years I imagined how you look. You don’t look as I imagined but you do look good. I do hope that your TMZ appearance is the stat of something big for you.

  30. Yesssss!!! Mr. Foxxx push on through!!! I am so proud that you took that step out on faith bro!! Now I’m in my apartment screaming at the top of my lungs, kudos!!!!

  31. i was so overwhelmed by all the comments.
    each time they came in,
    i legit cried at the responses.
    i won’t lie,
    it took me a while to hit publish.
    i was so scared.
    this has been 10 years of being in the shadows,
    but i was finally ready to step out.
    this was a huge step for me,
    but i’m grateful i received so much love.

    thank you all for each and every comment.
    I LOVE YOU ALL.
    the highest of cap lock.

    jf.

  32. Where have I been? I thought the video at the top left was an ad so I never clicked. Thank God I decided to, finally. You look so studious and intellectual!
