Roxie Roker

Roxie Roker was a beautiful Bahamian-American actress who is well known for her role as Helen Willis on The Jeffersons. Before her role catapulted her into the limelight, she was a reporter for a local news station in New York and a children’s advocate. Roxie was very proud of her Bahamian roots and whenever she had the chance to share it or reflect it on the big screen, she jumped at the opportunity.

I was shocked to learn that Roxie is the mother of famous rocker Lenny Kravitz. I had the biggest crush on Lenny and I’m still a fan of his music. Many find it hard to believe Lenny Kravitz is 54 years old because he doesn’t look it. One word: Melanin. His father was the late Sy Kravitz, a film producer who passed away October 29, 2005. Roxie passed away December 2, 1995.

One of the things that stood out to me about Roxie is how her granddaughter, actress Zoe Kravitz, shares some of her same mannerisms and at times resembles her. Funny how genes and genetics work when it comes to family and descendants. Speaking of her family, did you know she was also the cousin of famous weatherman Al Roker? I would have never put two and two together.

Until next time…

Nice Try Rosie

Roseanne Barr had her show axed Monday after posting another racist and insensitive tweet about a person of color. She was called out in the past by her ex-husband Tom Arnold for her racially charged tweets, but with all that being said, I can’t help but to see her as a plum fool. Why do I say that? Here’s why. The president of ABC Entertainment (where her Roseanne reboot was aired) is an African American woman by the name of Channing Dungey. Guess who axed Roseanne Barr’s show within 11 hours after her tweet? You guessed it…


Roseanne proved to be her own worst enemy and she freely provided her own rope to hang herself when she posted her most recent disgusting tweet. How DUMB is that? The woman who has an immense amount of power and control over not only you, but also your show happens to be a woman of color and you do something as foolish as that? I tell you it’s true, racist and prejudiced people are some of the most dumbest people in the world.


Channing Dungey didn’t think twice about axing Roseanne’s show and she has millions of people who support her decision. Not only that, she is being praised for her swift decision. With all that being said, you can’t help but to feel bad for the innocent cast members who got caught up in Roseanne’s foolishness. I found it hilarious how her cast members quickly denounced Roseanne Barr and distanced themselves from her. Smart, very smart.

Roseanne is being verbally dragged all over the internet and the news by both fans and celebrities, but that didn’t stop her from stooping to a new low by blaming the medication Ambien for her actions. Nice try. Ambien responded back with the quickness that racism is not a side effect of their medication! It’s funny how racist and prejudiced people backtrack when they are called out by the masses. Racist and prejudiced
individuals tend to forget that people of color now have a strong voice. Many hold prominent positions and so your actions will come with serious consequences and repercussions.


Roseanne’s rise and fall is proof that what you say or do can come back to bite you with a vengeance. She should’ve thought twice before she sent that tweet…
