Black couple

I have been married for five years. My wife has a tattoo of her child’s father’s name on her back and each year before the new year she says it will be off and it’s still not removed. When I married her she didn’t take my last name, but I feel disrespected by that simply because she can walk around with his name on her, but she can’t wear my last name on paper; am I wrong?

Call it “Shark Tank” for Black women entrepreneurs. Veteran TV businesswoman Tracey Edmonds is now bringing a business competition show targeting Black female entrepreneurs to Centric. The show, which debuts on January 14, is called “Queen Boss,” and will be the first of its kind.

Considering that Black women make up the fastest-growing group of entrepreneurs in America, it’s a wonder no one thought of the idea before.

“The 8-episode series will be hosted by TV personality and businesswoman Tracey Edmonds. Throughout the competition a total of 18 contestants will battle it by presenting their innovative products to a panel of celebrity judges including Vanessa Simmons, Lauren Lake, Kandi Burruss, Carla Hall, Mikki Taylor, Lisa Price, Rakia Reynolds, Angela Benton and Robin Wilson,” reported Centric TV.

The winner walks away with the $25,000 cash prize for her business and the title of “Queen Boss.” Check out the trailer for the series which airs January 14 at 10 pm on Centric.

Desiigner, Lil Yachty, Logic, Tory Lanez, Bryson Tiller, Jeremih, G-Eazy and Joe Kay of Soulection are the names we may recognize off the rip.
In their blurb about Desiigner’s selection, they note that his hit single “Panda” is the obvious reason why.
