I’ve long thought that there should be a show like the one that will unfold at the White Palace Lounge on Friday (April 27). Get ready because the Bad Girlz Comedy Show is here.
This will be a great opportunity for the Memphis area to see what kind of female comedy talent we have in the Bluff City. I’m expecting a whole lot of fun.
Hosted by Model Lea, the event will feature Sonia Faylene and my good friend Mzzz. Kecia. Yep, she does use all of those Zs. Also on the show will be Poet and Model AJ and entertainer DaLady. Music will be provided by DJ Maurice.
The White Palace Lounge is located at 4141 Hacks Cross Road next to Cracker Barrel.
Tickets are $10 before 8 p.m. and $15 thereafter. For more information, including tickets, visit www.paschalhildrethentertainment.com or call at 901-896-8419.
WOWW Women’s Expo
On May 5 from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m., join WRBO’s Kristee Lane for the WOWW Women’s Expo at the Southland Mall. There will be plenty of vendors to visit and information to receive.
WOWW’s purpose is to uplift women in every aspect of their lives. The Expo is designed to give women an opportunity to gather information on education, spiritual awareness and a variety of other topics. The objective is simply to inform women of the many options available to them in the Mid-south. The goal is to provide vendors with an outlet to share their product information with women and other interested parties.

Grammy Award nominee and South African Jazz recording artist Jonathan Butler will perform at St. Andrew AME Church on May 5 at 7 p.m.

The Biggest Loser update
Well, the big day is this weekend for me and my participation in The Bigest Loser Memphis. During the entire month of April, I have been hard at it doing aerobics, walking the track, watching everything I eat and resisting the temptation of my world famous pasta alfredo.
Saturday (April 28) is the monthly weigh-in day. Last month, at my first weigh in, I came in at 229 pounds. This time around I’m hoping to have reached my goal of 220. I’m pretty confident that I’ll be there. I’d better be, lol.
I’ll be sure to share the details with you next week.
