Happy Birthday to Nia, the good sis is 30 years old. Queen -

 

omg mom/stunning queen/amazonian princess <3 we truly weren't worthy tbqh. i wish she hadn't ****** up with the jordan thing on exes 2 because she was set to be such a powerhouse on the challenge. when she and leroy destroyed johnny and nany in that elimination i climaxed tbh. forever crying for what could've been 

in light of this recent Malcom tea. Are Leroy (Naomi, Nia, Kam) and Cory (Cheyenne) the only black dudes in recent memory to show an interest in black women on screen in MTV??

Lmao is it a requirement to just not go after black girls

Nelson had a thing with Cheyenne & Toya. Tor’i showed a liking to Faith from what I can remember.

ahh I remember see them im fine with because it’s not like they pulled a Malcolm allegedly and just “don’t date black girls” like i said it in the EOTB thread but black men who think like that are red flags 

They don’t want to promote Black love to the young generation because they are afraid to see Black us loving each other and building together. 

They are rather entertained by our dysfunctions and our self-loathe ! ☕️☕️☕️

The Malcolm situation doesn't surprise me he's a messy ************ in the worst way. I don't see how a black man can dismiss a black woman who shares the same ethnicity or complexion as them. That's one of the most vile things I've ever witnessed.

Where is the lie? 

Which is leading into what I was going to post about: this damn Kandi v.s. Tamar shit smmfh

Tamar needs help. I forgot how crazy she is & the fact that she can't get along with NOBODY. It's not even in an entertaining way like Legend Azealia Banks, it's just like.....really?

right like I’m not saying you have to exclusively date black women but to just outright vocally say you would never date a black women is telling.

Marlons father cut ties with him and they got into a physical altercation.

People from his hometown verbal attacked him in public.

He came back from the challenge  homeless and anytime he was asked back in the past he declined because he had nothing stabled back at home. 

 When he was pursuing his Hip-Hop, promoters who booked him declined him after finding out he was bi. He gave up on that and pursued body building.

basically that he wasn’t out before going on The Real World. He thought he was more prepared for coming out than he really was. It cut into Scott and Derrick basically trying to make a point that he doesn’t look like someone who sleeps with dudes but Marlon had a rebuttal that when you play football there are dudes who every one knows clap cheeks but it’s just not said like it doesn’t have a look. 

Where he describes it being horrible is when He recalled the moment he actually came out on the show and how awkward it was where every one just looked at him and didn’t say anything for like 5 minutes. He brought up how when it aired on TV he was filming the challenge so he didn’t get to actually experience the initial reaction. He says he recalls a time where he went to a bar and students that went to tech were there and a girl came up to him and yelled at him saying he was an embarrassment to the school. He said his family is very religious so they weren’t about it either and it just was so overwhelming going from feeling so confident to then have your self confidence crushed as soon as you get home. 

He also said he thinks Paulie is a tool.

Said Kayleigh was wrong for the Natalie thing, that it’s the highest level of disrespect because his coming out experience was horrible and it was on his own terms. But also agreed that you probably shouldn’t be in fights with someone who knows a secret you have. Said that it’s a grey area because she was pursuing women on camera.

Said he’s been in contact with some of the producers and they hit him back saying they are excited that he’s ready to get back into the challenge. So he says he’s on their radar but he needs to fit into the storyline

 

It really irritates me that Marlon had to go through all of that. I'll never understand how so many people...including your own damn family can turn on your for something so petty. 

And I also can't stand that "you don't look gay/bi" bullshit. People need to really understand that ANYONE can be LGBT. So there's no damn "Look" to being that. So damn ignorant smh.

And I also can't stand that "you don't look gay/bi" ********. People need to really understand that ANYONE can be LGBT. So there's no damn "Look" to being that. So damn ignorant smh.

internalized homophobia where gay/bi has a look and mannerism to it. You could look like Shane Raines and like dick or you could look like The Rock and like dick. People kill me with that ignorant shit 

Wow I feel so bad that Marlon had to go through that :( 

So is Marlon identifying as ******** now. It never felt like he officially came out like on Real World I thought that he said that was in the past and on The Challenge it seemed like he tried to hide the Derrick hookup.
