S1, E2 : “Dirty Little Secrets”
Episode 2 picks up right where the first left off, as Olivia Pope takes on a new major client for the week. Washington DC’s number one madam Sharon Marquette, needs the Pope agency to protect her client list and plethora of assets from the Distract Attourney’s office. Dating back to 1986, the list contains a many senators and congressmen, even Supreme Court nominee and President’s pick Patrick Keating. Of course Olivia figures this connection out and dashes to the White House to alert the President’s team of the incoming media bomb, but not before having a standoff with antagonist JJ, counseling Mr. and Mrs. Keating (now new clients as well-duh), and assigning newbie agent Quinn to monitor Amanda Tanner in the hospital.
Now, I struggled to finish the book years ago as I found it sexist and wasn’t interested in Steve Harvey telling ME what to do in ANY of my relationships. So I was a cynic all day before the screening thinking it was going to be some simple foolery.
How wrong was I?! I LOVED the film? No. Really. I LUV-HED. The. Film?!
Starring Taraji P. Henson, Gabrielle Union, Kevin Hart, Jerry Ferrera, Meagan Good, Michael Ealy (YUM), Romany Malco, Terrance J. and Gary Owen, this was a romantic comedy home run.
I had never heard of “Katniss Everdeen” before the pop culture marketing machine cranked up for Hunger Games. Another young adult genre of best-selling book-turned-blockbuster-film was set for a spring release, but after skipping the Harry Potter craze (never seen a second of those Wizards- missmewiththat), and bored to tears by Bella & Jacob (UGH), I was honestly intrigued by HG previews. So, last Friday afternoon during an IMAX matinee, I treated myself to what everyone would surely be talking about all month long. GLAD I did.

Grand Hustle and 3LittleDigs hosted a Listening Party for Grand Hustle’s new group the D.O.P.E. Boys (Destroying Other People’s Egos). Supporting my Tree Sound family and good hip-hop, I hung out at a packed FlyKix store in Castleberry Hill to check out D.O.P.E.’s new mixtape and enjoy the newest offering from Malibu Red. Even Tip (The KAAAANG) stopped by. We had a great time! Appreciate the invite, thanks to FlyKix ATL, Tree Sound, and the delicious Malibu Red dranks. 🙂 Download a copy of D.O.P.E.’s mixtape here.
