I call it the high ground. Can you help control? I can't even deal with it. I was so angry. I got so. The world's most dangerous morning just in this big day and everybody's business, but in a good way, Charlemagne, the the ruler rubbing you the wrong way, the Breakfast Club for everybody. Good morning, USA, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo.
Come on in Anjali get money to the heavy Charlamagne the guy peace to the planet is Tuesday.
Yes, it's Tuesday. Good morning, everybody. Good morning, man. How are you feeling this morning? Yoga. I'm doing pretty good. Yeah, I spent the day getting my car service yesterday because I was having issues with one of my tires. And I don't know why I got. I know. Well, you know what? They said there was a nail in one of my tie. I thought it was just one tire, but there was a nail and one of them there was an issue with another one.
You know, it's bad driving in New York City. So, no, I ended up having to get four of my tires replaced. Yeah. And the ones I have tire insurance. And I did that just because, you know, the streets are bad here aren't that bad. Insurance is very important, too, because time is expensive. Boy.
Yes, they do. About 90 lives in Brooklyn. Brooklyn is not that bad right now. It hasn't been snowing. It's not that many potholes.
So one day we woke up one day and you hit them and you hit them all like some people died and he hits them. Now, let me tell you. So we we have to just ball. You just purchased a new home. It was like envy. What does it look like? She was like up the block. I said, OK, let's go. She's like, what happened? So, you know, on the way to a crib, there might have been or little potholes in two speed bumps and all of them and not all of them slowly, like she was aiming for, like it was Mario Kart.
And that was the the whatever she did to get extra points. And you went, I'm thinking with 30 miles an hour. So now I know that's the reason why you need a tire because you don't slow in.
So you don't you don't think that four hours in the course of a few blocks is a lot. You aim, you aim for you go like you aim for it. Well, anyway, the moral of the story is thank goodness for tire insurance. That's why I have it. Hey, man, cool story. Fantastic tale, guys. Just wanted to tell you, that's exactly what I wanted to hear this morning. You know, I'm just telling you, I'm not making a lot of people I have a lot of people have car issues.
I want to tell us about your brake pads the whole day. I know the brakes on how the alternator going. I think she has no clue about it, you know? Damn, no, I know these brake for I'm kind of upset. Last night I fell asleep. And you know what's Monday, right? Today is Monday, I think Monday. I missed The Bachelor last night, man.
It's like Bachelor the first time my mother ever watched Bachelor. In twenty five years I've seen the text of my movies with my wife. It was like, he's handsome. Yeah. Yeah.
OK, so now this is a good story. Now I'm interested. So you text your mom, text you and said he's handsome. You replied back. Yes. So like why a with a bunch of exes. No, that's what you just said. That's I'm just guessing my mom texted gear.
No, no nigga I hear nothing about no damn good. You don't always that don't try to start doing this. No. We have a special guest. Do you want to go back to talking my tires. Yeah. Tell me about Goodyear. OK, what about Michelle, your Michelin man. I did. A lot of people have to do with Tiger Woods. You got to be kidding me. Let's get this show started. You guys crazy. So we have a Bevy Smith joining us this morning.
That's right. Revelation. She's got a new book out called Revelations. What is it? Revelations. Stories from a mama, auntie and a best of the best thing yet.
And then I'm a mother, not mommy.
There you go, Mother. Tell them how Baby Smith is for people. I don't know.
Baby is a dog. I mean, he's done a little bit of everything. She's been in the fashion world. She used to work at Vibe magazine back in the day. She's just the old Stone magazine. Yeah.
She actually works here on page six for a while. So come on. Don't even know. She's got her own radio show on Sirius Satellite Radio on Andy Cohen's network. He's just the Harlem OG with a story to tell. And that's why she's got a book out today. That's right.
So we're going to talk to Baby Smith. And then we got front page news, but we talk you.
Yes, we are going to be talking about when are you able to go back out, what Dr. Fauci has a prediction on when these concert venues and theaters could return.
All right. We'll get into that next Keibel autist, The Breakfast Club. Good morning, everybody. To C.J. Envy, Angela Charlemagne, the guy we are, the Breakfast Club page news.
We start you.
Well, let's start with the House Democrats. They're planning to vote tomorrow to impeach Donald Trump and they're setting up an impeachment vote one week after these rioters over incited by Donald Trump overran the Capitol Police. So they'll vote. The House is voting this evening on a resolution urging Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment. And then they plan to vote Wednesday at 9:00 a.m. on the impeachment resolution.
I have no faith in Democrats know. I'm saying Democrats are soft, especially after I saw that a couple of the police officers, one who let people in and another who took selfies at the Capitol building with the rioters, they got suspended, suspended it and that's it.
Suspended, not fired. Not arrested, suspended. I have no favorite Democrats state to. So, so. Suspended the work that they said took them around Capitol Hill. I don't I don't I just know that the one who took a selfie with him got suspended in one who was a bad guy. They said one who ushered him in. Yeah, that's the one that took him.
Capitol told me to go. They only got suspended.
They only got. But they and no investigation of a terrorist act.
You know, I was actually not doing anything else I can imagine, imagine, imagine, imagine if al Qaeda, real al Qaeda and not our cracka invaded the capital and one of the police officers there took a selfie with a member of al Qaeda. I told al Qaeda where to go. Do you think they were getting suspended? No.
And if you if you were going to thank these people all the time on camera and end up getting suspended and then they do an investigation.
So this was different. This is this is total. This is this is that they had to think about the reason they raided the Capitol building while every single member of Congress is saying that this was different. Man, no, we know good and well that if that was al Qaeda and one of the people in there took a selfie with him, one of the police officers, they wouldn't have got suspended. They'd have been fired, arrested, locked up.
I mean, I would I would hope that still it could potentially happen. But right now, the FBI is warning arm protests are being planned at all, 50 state capitals in D.C. And so they have received that information. So right now, this news is coming up. Security measures are also being stepped up ahead of Inauguration Day, which, as you know, is the 20th. There's federal, state and local law enforcement agencies preparing for the possibility of more violence after what happened at the Capitol is definitely going to be more violence if there's no consequences and repercussions for what happened last week.
You know what I mean? Like, of course, you see the feds picking people up. But I mean, it just don't seem like it's any real harsh punishments being laid down. I mean, even when you get arrested, I know those things take time, but I don't even hear people talking like these folks is about to get 10 years, 15 years. You seem nervous and scared.
I don't know how they treat this nationally like it's just another headline. Like it's just another thing that happened in our country.
All right, well, that is your front page news. All right, get it off your chest. Eight hundred five eight five one five one. If you're upset and you need to vent eight hundred five eight five one two five one, maybe had a bad night last night. Maybe you fell asleep and missed the bachelor. Whatever.
Maybe maybe he was stuck at your service and you call for six hours. It would be me six hours now, all long time just to change.
Sometimes I just want to say maybe right now everybody has covered fatigue. And like I was saying earlier, Doctor Fauci saying that things could be turned in the fall thanks to the vaccine. But we'll talk more about that later.
Dr. Fauci screeches open folks is out here, Brunswick. In some places, Dr.. Forty people back shaking hands and oh, you don't know if he's in Atlanta, Dr. Fauci.
But anyway, get off your chest is the Breakfast Club. Good morning. It's the one and only. It's The Breakfast Club.
I'm telling you. I'm telling you this is your time to get it off your chest, whether you're mad or blessed.
Eight hundred five eight five one five one. We want to hear from you on the Breakfast Club. Hello.
This is my what I don't understand is how people look got that quote because black that would have made it nowhere near any of them said, well, it's called white privilege. It was called white privilege to call. It is called being an inside job, sir.
Yeah, well, that but this is just going to get blown under the rug. I don't think anything's going to happen. And that's going to be very sad.
If there's no consequences or repercussions for what happened last week, it's only going to get worse.
But I wanted to tell you so every time I love it gets me to my morning. Thank you.
Thank you so much. Thank you. King.
Hello, this is Tom calling from Cleveland.
So I just got home with the Browns. Congratulations on your win another day. I don't know if you're a Browns fan now. I'm down with the Browns and our power bleed and then you go.
Real congrats on your win of the day, man. And I'm looking forward for this as the Vegas Post and saying the chiefs a ten point favorite that's going to drop by Friday. Wait for the injury report your agility. Every year, Charlamagne got in pursuit of a healthy maximisation of an efficient government. Try to impeach Donald Trump is not a good move.
These are reasons why go no less than one hundred and seventy five bills introduced by the House of Representatives just this month. Today is the 12th. It is not just a matter. Those things have a simple votes made on them. It has to be a lot of arguments and discussions about where there needs to be a minister. Bills and bills dropped off or other things connect to the bills that these guys have, these people have to be involved in. And there's hundreds of thousands of millions of people waiting for some of these things to get done.
And they're going to affect their lives directly, unlike this, which is not going to affect much of anybody's life directly. So they need to go to work on it. They need to be working on that and primarily those things in place of somebody who's going to be out in less than ten days and connecting him to a riot where if you pay attention to his words, none of his words were moving in the direction of the excitement of a way he kept saying, peaceful or patriotic, these people operate in their own free will.
And it was clear that they were operating in their own free will. And most of them were pranksters, because if they were truly trying to make a point of making a correction of government, they wouldn't be in here to tear things up. And still, they would have been in there making foolish proclamations about what should have happened.
Why should it happen on the Senate floor or rather on the House of Representatives for when they got here? And that's not what they were doing. So they were pranksters. They were suckers being driven by people that were standing behind them, figuratively speaking, but financially speaking, to get them to move in the direction they wanted them to move, just to make some drama, some sensationalism. Be clear on this. It's a bad move.
Attention. Who gives lawyers? Who's paying those lawyers and get attention, who gets lawyers and won't acknowledge who's paying their lawyers? You'll get a better understanding of why this happened. You can't put this off on the president this time. Not this.
I mean, he has a lot to do with it. And I mean, listen, it has to be consequences, the repercussions of what he incited last week. And, you know, there was a great article in The Washington Post called Free Nazi Germany tells us to fight to save American democracy is just the beginning. If they don't lead a smack down, bro, what's next? What do these people do next? You know what I'm saying? After we saw last week, like you got you got to be some some very harsh repercussions and consequences.
All right. Get it off your chest and you don't drink.
Five, eight, five, one, two, five one. If you need to vent it, it's up. Now is the Breakfast Club. Good morning.

This is your time to get it off your chest. The email. I hear from you on the Breakfast Club that you've got something on your mind.
Hello, this and it was every man is Jeremy. How you doing, Jeremy? What's up, brother? Get it off your chest. It was I, man. First I want to say good morning, all y'all. So I'll make a long story short, man. So they girl and I'm just getting say she she's a real is a real sweet girl. But I want to tell me if I'm nitpicking or not, you know what I'm saying.
So even some of the things that bother me, why are we in this relationship? So. OK, first of all, I'm a Christian man, you know, I mean, I'm not perfect and nothing like that. But she doesn't really have that same desire as I do. And I'm being vulnerable right now to see I really had anything desire that I do wish I had, you know what I mean? Like what she thinks is overrated.
No, no. She just ain't got no desire for, you know what I mean? She'll have it at five or you know what I mean. Like, I just you know, you want to listen to this interview and she like, you know, I'm all right, you know?
So that was the first she don't wanna hear, but she like, throw that goddamn throw that damn Jazmine Sullivan. I make a whole lot of me. I am all right.
You so that's the first time. The second time in you know, it's a difference between a bad kid and disrespected you. She got a little girl and I'm not I don't have any kids. I'm not opposed to stepping up when they're not around, you know what I mean? If I'm dating the woman, they know they've got to be there to protect the little girl. Disrespectful. You know, nobody about her daughter. My daughter's only six. I give it the benefit of the doubt, but it's like nothing.
My little girl ran out in the parking lot going on today. Absolutely off. She looking at me like I'm crazy. You know, my dad, I'm like, okay, all right.
You can't even pray for the little girl because her momma don't believe in God. And they're like, laughing like I'm a truck driver, man. So, you know, I'll be on a road or whatever when I come in town. I like to take out stuff like that. So one day I went to this nice restaurant. I live in Oklahoma City. Let's take a nice restaurant. I might have a night out, but will she come home?
Maybe they'll put up with sweat and some players. I'm all right. I'm all dressed up. I'm like, what do you do see? Like, I'm not used to dressing up. I don't know if I'm mistaken. The reason I think I don't know if I'm here is because, you know, my last relationship, I it broke my heart. So I don't and it's the first relationship I got into. So I don't know if I'm nit picking because of that.
And I'm not here because I think I believe I am or he's a real sound thing to be like, you know what, we may not be clicking away. You don't need to give it the benefit of the doubt and try a little bit. We only really what do you what do you like about her?
You just told us all the things you don't like, anything you like about it. Go get what she is. She's very smart. She's very giving for Christmas like she. No, I like the Lakers. She got me like the Lakers. Really, you know what I mean. Like she look out for them, you know, she, you know, for me, you know, whenever I'm coming down like she a sweet girl. I'm not saying that the best person I know, she she ranch's she ain't up there tearing up everything like that is that these things are kind of, you know, something, I ain't got no kids.
I ain't got no plan when I'm dating somebody I'm dating, that would take it somewhere. I mean, I'm saying you sound like this.
Your first time date in the hood, you you sound like you never been with a project princess in your life. She don't believe in God and she's got two independent three year old. What's the problem? You're not saying that she doesn't believe in God.
She just doesn't want to have to go to church. Right. Right. Yes, she's not. As Sylhet had a desire that. Bernie, listen, Salomon Brothers do I it dealt with the world's wretched females. Yes.
You have women in Jacksonville got bulletproof wiess. Let's put them on hold because we got that much time. We've got to put your whole brother.
Then he's gonna help you. No need to put them on hold. We got no answer for him here in Florida. You are dealing with a Florida lottery.
I live in Oklahoma. Not right now, but just decide to give me our best advice. Me maybe later on. I keep listening to some Salaman both you see every one of you. But for you, I'm a put you on hold and I'm send you a copy of Sugar and Anxiety playing tricks on me. It's a journal. It's a journal of my experiences in therapy. And it sounds like you're going to need some man.
Come on now. Please try to answer a little bit later. I'll give you a quick one minute.
I'm a pray to God for your girlfriend. Don't believe in and I'm afraid for you. Hold on.
Hold on. Hold on. Goodness gracious. Get it off your chest. 855 one two five one. If you need to vent, you can hit us up. Now we got room. We're going away.
Yes. And since we're talking relationships, we'll tell you about a couple who just recently filed for divorce. They are two kids in and looks like things didn't work out. My goodness.
All right. We'll get to that in. Keep it like this, The Breakfast Club, good morning, The Breakfast Club. Never thought you'd make a great switchboard operator or seltzer man or professional royal mistress if full time jobs are your jam.
We've got a podcast just for you.
I'm Helen Hong and I'm at Beat and we host the new podcast Job. Sillett taking a look at jobs that used to be a thing and now not so much.
My Heart Radio's number one for podcasts, but don't take our word for it. Fine job salute on the I Heart radio app or wherever you get your podcasts e.g. in English.
Ye I mean the guy we are at a breakfast club. Let's get to the room is the Bill Belichick.
Listen. This just in, all the guys got the room report, got guys in the group, it's a room over report, the Breakfast Club.
Well, Bill Belichick has rejected Donald Trump's Presidential Medal of Freedom. He said he will not accept it. And that's all because of the riots that happened at the U.S. Capitol. So he did a whole statement. He said recently I was offered the opportunity to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom, which I was flattered by, out of respect for what the honor represents and admiration for prior recipients. Subsequently, the tragic events of last week occurred and the decision has been made not to move forward with the award.
I mean, that's great. But, you know, I'm pretty sure Bill Belichick voted for Donald Trump if you didn't vote for him. He wrote a letter encouraging people in Massachusetts to vote for him back in 2016. I mean, it's never too late to do the right thing.
But come on now, this is a perfect example of I don't need you anymore. You have 10 more days. What do I need? Donald Trump? Absolutely. That's what I want him for. I can't I can't give these people applause for making the right choice now. And he should have made the right choice back in 2016, especially when in his letter he told Donald Trump, you have dealt with an unbelievably slanted in slanted media and have come out beautifully in your leadership is amazing.
It's like like I said, it's never too late to do the right thing. But you can't escape Trump that easily, buddy.
You're part of the problem. All right. Well, he's not getting any. No, there were other people that actually afterward did accept those presidential medals, Medals of Freedom, so he wasn't the only person that was going to get one.
The people did accept theirs. All right. Now, Disneyland is going to become a mass covid-19 vaccination site. So that's going to be in Anaheim. And a lot of that has been closed since the pandemic. But now they're saying the site will become operational later this week. And they said there will be a mass covid-19 testing operation at Dodger Station that will be phased out this week so that the sports arena is turned into a large scale vaccination location.
That's going to make for some great jokes in the hood. All the anti vaccine is telling me, homeboys, take your goofy ass on out to Disney World then and get the vaccine, which your goofy ass that's going to make for some great jokes. But I'm pumped.
All right. Latoya Luckett and her husband, Tameka's Walker, they got married in twenty seventeen. They have announced that they are getting divorced. So they've been married for three years. Their son, they just had a son just four months ago, Tyson Wolf. And according to Latoya Lucky, she said, after very careful consideration, Tameka's and I have decided to get a divorce. It is my deepest desire for us to be loving parents and keep a peaceful environment out of respect for our children.
Now, Tameka's Walker also made a statement. Latoya and I have decided to divorce. This was a very difficult decision. We remain committed to our family as parents, and we ask that you please respect our privacy and the safety of our children at this time. Then he posted to any married couple trust that God can work things out despite what might be the present state. Right now, that is the only person that can change the circumstances. I never wanted a divorce, but outside forces can create a lot of confusion.
For the record, I never stepped out on my wife. And then he went on to post. And for all the friends or family that's saying, I didn't like him anyway, guess what? I didn't like your stinky ass either.
And hey, I promise you, I promise you, out of all the couples going through divorces, we don't need press releases. You know, I'm saying that's your business. Like, we don't need who you are. I'll explain it to you. I really do wonder, like who who do they explain things?
Sometimes it's like if like, for instance, if you see little like it out with somebody else she's dating again or she's with, you know, somebody else, she wants to say, hey, I'm just letting you guys know. So you're not reporting to the blog or, you know, making things strange and uncomfortable.
OK, I mean, they were to friends and family has social together. So sometimes you want people to know. So when you see him out doing things, you're not like he's cheating. So sometimes you got to just put that statement out there. All right. Now, Steve Kerr talks about the time that he got to find Drake. Five hundred dollars and he talked about what happened. Here's what he said.
We were flying to L.A. and we all got to the airport and Steph and Draymond weren't on the plane. Steph said, oh, my fault. You know, I'm with Drake and Draymond were at the arena still. We were we were sorry we're late. And we had we had a team rule at the time that you could bring a friend on the plane, you know, a couple of times a year. Trey got on the plane that night with Draymond and stuff and I find all three of them for being late and Drake paid his five hundred dollars fine.
And that's a great OK. I wonder what the Canadian our American dollars Drake probably paid for everybody. Yeah. Do you have me. All right, get ready and get ready for Basketball Wives.
Season nine is coming out and that's going to be that's going to be pretty shortly.
I can't believe it's been nine seasons. I thought it seemed like a bit longer, but it was during the meeting during ninth is a date that it's returning in. The trailer just came out yesterday. Listen. But right, so much time has gone by. Why don't we get a mention so you going by all the ladies? Let's just put that behind us and stop the nonsense. I'm not taking. No. I feel like this show has been on my whole life now and not to mention nine seasons and not one real basketball wife on it.
Not feel not one of them is married to a damn basketball player. Not now.
OK, who else is on there this year? Jackie Christie. Oh, she's married to Barry. She's a real boy.
So this season, everyone is out his back. Shaunie O'Neal is back. Jennifer Williams is back. Jackie Christies back. Malaysia is back. Kristin Scott and then Oggi Fedi Torez. And then we have some new people Lysa Moralez is joining. And you know, Liza Moralez, she used to date Lamar Odom. They have children together. And then also Nia and Nooria Dorsey, the new.
So this show is Ex Basketball Wives, really? Well, some of them are OK. And I bring it back. Bonnie Chronicles, Tami Roman, they bring it back.
I think Tammy wanted to go back.
I'll be busy, Tammy, on a shooting. Miss Pacho. I believe I think that I think they were in production on this sitcom, Dropping Bombs on Pat Pet.
His bad pat hit me everyday. Check up on me. I love this part of this, Pat. All right, well, Angela here, and that is your roomer report. All right. Thank you. Miss you. Now, we got front page news coming up. What we talking about?
Yes. We'll give you some more updates on the coronavirus pandemic and also the vaccine.
All right. We'll get into that next. Keep it locked. This The Breakfast Club. Good morning. Good morning, everybody.
Is T.J. Envy Angela Charlemagne, the guy we are the Breakfast Club.
Now, let's get in some front page news where we starting? Well, let's start with some coronavirus updates.
Now, the U.S. has averaged more than three thousand covid-19 deaths per day for the past week, and they have reported more than two hundred thousand new infections for seven straight days. So far, nearly nine million people have gotten their first shot of the more than 22 million covid-19 vaccine doses that have been distributed in the United States so far. Moderna believes the vaccine should protect people for at least a year from coronavirus. And then, you know, you have to get two shots.
So they're saying that it's you get the first shot and then a month later you get the second. But they're saying even if it takes longer than that, it should still be effective. And they're also testing to see if adding a third dose, which they call a boost, might actually extend that protection.
So it's going to be like the flu. You got to get it every year. Yeah, that's what I believe. So, yeah, every year. And he was saying, I believe this. You know, one of the companies can protect against a mutating strain. Is that true to you?
Did you hear anything about that? What they're saying with the mutating strain is that it just spreads quicker or easier and that's the difference. But they're not saying that right now because it's pretty new here. I think only like so far they have like 70 something people here that they've found that have it. So I'm sure they're still trying to figure that out. But why Thracian so far? You don't think three shots is excessive?
Well, they're saying that there is. That would be a boost. So they're trying to see if it will extend it past the year that it protects you. So they're still examining those things.
They want to extend the warranty. You got to pay a little extra for an extended warranty.
I studied some teachers were upset that, you know, teachers are essential workers. And so they're one of the first people that are going to be getting this job. But they were upset that some of the teachers who are virtual teachers are on the same list as the teachers who are in person, but they're not going to be on a virtual list for long.
I mean, I think they're going to want to be in a virtual for a little time. And then when once people start getting a vaccine, they're going to have to go back to work. Correct. So they're going to have to work.
All I know is I know a lot of essential workers, men, especially doctors. I've had quite a few doctors tell me don't take the first round of coffee, OK? I was getting my corn shaved on my right pinky toe last week in the podiatrist told me that as well, not to take the shot, not to take the shot.
You know, yesterday you wouldn't tell us what she said, but now you feel comfortable telling us. So she said, I don't think I wouldn't I wouldn't tell you her name. That's what I wouldn't do. But yes. OK. All right.
And Donald Trump has declared a state of emergency in D.C. The mayor of D.C. is also saying to avoid D.C. because of inauguration is coming up. And so Donald Trump has declared that state of emergency, citing the emergency conditions surrounding Joe Biden's inauguration.
So even that is like that's a dog whistle, even though he's absolutely, positively correct, based on what we saw last week. But that's still putting up a massive signal in the air. You know, I mean, it's not a bad thing. You've got a jar mayonnaise in the air right now telling everybody what to do on Inauguration Day.
That's what it seems like. Right, and they are warning that there are the FBI has received notification that there could be armed protests being planned at all, 50 state capitols in Washington, D.C. and in Washington, D.C. What's scary about that is you don't know who to trust.
You don't know who's in on it. You know what I mean? You don't know if members of the FBI or in or you don't know. Do you know the security at the Capitol isn't on and you don't know who's who in these situations anymore.
You just don't. Mm hmm. All right, now, in addition to all of that, House Democrats are planning to vote tomorrow to impeach Trump. So they're setting up an impeachment vote. And the House will vote tonight on a resolution that's urging Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove him from power.
Then they'll vote tomorrow at 9:00 a.m. on the impeachment resolution on the bench has been very loyal to Donald Trump. They said they hadn't been speaking in quite some time until yesterday.
I'm with all consequences and repercussions that come Trump's way for what happened yesterday, but I just don't feel like that's strong enough. Like I really think that they should be talking about, you know, locking Donald Trump up. Like, I think they should really be talking about pursuing criminal charges against him. I think that's the only way you prevent something like this from happening in the future to really, really, really, really drop the hammer on the door.
Yeah, I mean, I think that you do I think they should do both. They should impeach him and also then lock him up. They should impeach him. 25Th Amendment, lock them up, everything.
I believe that also after you're president, don't you get a salary for the rest of your life and you get protection?
I've never heard of that. I think you still get protection. I don't know about a guy. You still got to give him protection. You still get protection. He a form. Even if you get him, even if you get impeached, you still got to have the.
I still say you've got to give me protection because he's still a former president. He knows a lot of secrets. You know what? If he gets kidnapped by, you know, foreign foreign opposition and tortured for all the secret, still got to protect him.
Yeah. This former presidents receive a pension equal to the pay that the head of an executive department would be paid. So they said as of twenty twenty, it's two hundred and nineteen thousand per year. And it starts immediately after your departure from office.
That's good money. They should give them a stimulus check instead of the two hundred nineteen thousand dollars.
You give them six hundred dollars or you get twenty four one because you got a couple of kids. Oh, gotcha, gotcha, gotcha. All right. Well, that is your front page news. All right.
Thank you, Miss Yee. Now, when we come back, Bev Smith will be joining us.
Baby Smith will be joining us now. For people that don't know who she is, you want to give us a little update of a rundown of who she is and what she does?
Our baby has a new book that's out today. She used to work at Vibe magazine. Then she went over to Rolling Stone. Then she's did a lot in the world of fashion and she did page six TV and all of that.
She became a personality after working in publishing her book called Revelations Lessons from a Mother, Aunt and Bestie.
All right. So we don't kick it with her when we come back. So Don't Move is The Breakfast Club. Good morning. It's The Breakfast Club.
Everybody is T.J. Envy, Angela Yee, Charlemagne, the guy we are The Breakfast Club. We got a special guest on the line this morning. We have Bevy Smith.
Welcome, guys. Thank you so much for having me here.
Thank you for joining us. Even though, as you know, I mean, Zoome don't do you no justice, baby.
Thank you, baby. I'm meant to be taken in love in a sense. That's right.
Populations on the new book Revelations.
Hey, lessons from a mother art investee. Indeed. You know where that title came from? The subtitle where. So the mother is what my gay sons call me. OK, that auntie is what a young girl said. Watch me on TV or see me on social media and hear what I talk about my real life experiences. That's what they call me. And then the best is for my contemporaries. Seeing you on TV a lot. I want to take a trip for a while and I'm going to have a little cocktail.
So that's where you came from, Mr. Relatability of the business situation situation now.
Now, some women don't like to be called auntie. Why doesn't that bother you?
Well, know, if you're too old, you can't call me. That's why said younger. Younger. OK, well, so you get the audience up talking about Auntie Bad. My work book is out today.
So. So why was it a time to write revelations? It was time to write revelations because they gave me a book deal and you know me besides the money in the book deal.
Oh OK. OK, well, because honestly, it was a culmination of the fifteen year journey. It took me being a really successful fashion advertising executive person magazine and then a Rolling Stone magazine. And then I quit at the age of thirty eight at the height of my career to like pursue this thing, to become a media personality. And no one really believed that I could do it, because as we all know, media is a youth oriented game.
I knew I could do it. I was like, I'm thirty eight, I can do it. I have that passion. I have that feeling. I have that dream desire.
So I just put the pedal to the metal and fifteen years later my mom made it. But this book represents the culmination of that journey. And so now on to the next one.
It is hard for people to take that leap. Sometimes you talk about first about being at Vibe magazine, but you had that amazing any expenses, everything paid for you had. Balance to everything, and a lot of people, they get stuck in feeling that, OK, I have a so great over here. When is it time for you to step out and do your own thing? So how did you decide that it was time for you to leave behind all of the perks that bothered to step out?
Well, I was a miserable bitch because I was just really unhappy and I was making people around me unhappy and I just was bored and I just couldn't get excited about anything. In the book I talk about, you know, like the salon set song craziness that I try to shop the way I tried the sex of the way I tried to drink it, the way I was doing everything to try to make myself feel better. But ultimately, I had to look inside myself and really discover what was it that I truly want out of life.
And what I really wanted was creative freedom and being tethered to a nine to five job, no matter how fabulous it was and how many books I had was not going to get me there.
That would you call the ugly side of your beautiful life. That's the ugly side of my beautiful life. When you're like you have everything that most people look at and say, oh, that's a dream job because, you know, I'm from the street like that and I am sitting in the long and the movie. I'm just saddened all over the world. I fly first class and I'm doing all these things in the late 90s, early 2000s.
Mean, why do you think in this industry is so hard for people to walk away from situations that they know they're not happy with?
What because it's the lights, the glitz and the glamour also, too. I think a lot of times when you are coming from a place of humble beginnings, right. A humble background, you kind of feel ungrateful for saying that you don't want something that you won worked so hard for. But then also to the most people that come from your background, would be happy to have a big comfortability, too.
I think a lot of times it's I'm in a comfort zone. You know, if I leave, I still got to pay my house note. I still got to pay my school if I still got to help family members.
And if I leave, I might lose all of that, you know, but you can't be afraid to lose something like that if you really believe in what you're expected not to do. But I mean, now, you know, in the book, that's all about blissful. So I'll tell cause every day to take the bus, I go from, you know, talking fifty dollar night dinners to, you know, OK, and say I'm making a sandwich.
OK, so that was a that was a big part of the journey. It's quite the journey, but the even better part about being broke. But this was that I found out about what really was inside my tenacity. Right. So I was able to create my business dinner with Debbie because I was broke. So I took a look at my hands and I had amazing relationships with celebrities and amazing relationships with fashion houses. And I put those two things together and I played the business.
I would never thought of myself as an entrepreneur and I'm not going well, you know, I don't want to give too much of a book away, but.
But what is the red soul proposition?
All the red sole proposition. So, Angela, you remember just at the beginning, probably when we saw that we your ideals and everything, but we remember what it used to be, the shoe, right?
Manolo Blahnik. Yep. Yep. And then all of a sudden, Lobatón, it felt like it came out of nowhere, right? Correct. And everybody was like, I need to wear. So I need a rabbi. Right. OK, so that's what it's about. It's like having someone like Lubutu just come out of seemingly nowhere and just snatch the issue position from the whole block. And it was because they had that distinctive we're the only ones doing it right.
So so you what is your Whetsel? And the way you get to it is I asked three questions and they're really deep, introspective questions. Were you at your core? How are you being perceived? How would you like to be perceived? And you answer those questions and that I take you through the whole thing in the book. I had to get to those answers. And then that's how you define what makes you authentically you and that's how you can use that as a selling point to create your personal brand.
Can you really control how people perceive you? It'll be OK. So in the book I talk about the fact that now, of course, people want to have their own perceptions of you and and we can't we can't take it all and we can absorb it. But if it's like ninety out of a hundred people saying the same thing, you might want to check on that if you if you're not cool with what they say, but they do like being a bitch if you like, like being they have something that they like.
Beyond that I'm the bad guy, you know they have it. But that's not how you want to be perceived, that you can make some tweaks. And what I found is the tweet that I need to make was I had to start let me see. I was a human and I had I had feelings because I had such you know, I was so entrenched in hip hop that I was so big back from uptown that and I was so swept up that people didn't even know I was like a sensitive person who actually have feelings and had an.
And all that, and now when you look at me, you see all of that, how we got more with Beverly Smith when we come back. The movies, The Breakfast Club. Good morning. Morning.
Everybody is in English. I mean, the guy we are at the Breakfast Club is still kicking a bevy Smith.
Yet you make so many sacrifices and you discuss that, too. And I find out something that a lot of us have had to do. When you feel like you have to make them, when the truth is you can say no to things sometimes. Right. And you discuss missing like really important milestones when it comes to your friends and your family. And sometimes you do have to say, OK, this is a great opportunity, but there's always going to be something amazing happening.
And so it's OK to sometimes say notice there and thing. So how do you manage that balance and know like what is more important? And sometimes work is more important and sometimes real life is more important. How did you deal with that?
Well, you know, I'm so proud of myself because I really did learn that lesson and I learned the hard way. I'm missing all these big milestones, things like I talk about in the book. I miss my sister's wedding. I miss my mom's lots of birthdays. But I just recently last year in February, my dad's 90th birthday was on February eight. And I got a chance to be on celebrity family feuds and they just happened to be taken on February.
Not my old life.
I will be like Daddy is a celebrity family feud. Is ABC not trying to get in front of the network situations so that I'm not going to be able to be there and to my parents, to my parents, claiming they're the type of people that would definitely be like like my mom was like, you should go, Beverly. You have understanding, you know, you'll see in the next day. And I was like, no, it's this night.
And I called up and because I played on the radio banditti and I said, you know, my dad's birthday is the 8th. I can't go and do it. And he was like, will change the date. So they change the date. And I went to my dad's night and thank God I did, because as you guys know from reading the book, he passed away a company and they somehow missed that. And I would agree with that.
I wouldn't be doing this interview because I'd be living with regret.
Right now. Betty is a fashion expert and somebody who came up during a time when there were not a lot of black people in that business. Do you think that things have gotten better? And that was that now because we see a lot of these mistakes that these luxury brands have made and then they have to call in and try to figure out a way to fix and right their wrongs. And then you also talk about how fashion plays into the insecurities that we have.
So I just want to know, what do you think improvements have been made with that?
Well, you know, I think that we have to keep our foot literally on their backs to make them give us what we deserve. Urban culture is pop culture. The crowd I see a lot of is not a fluke. It was literally in our cultural DNA. And so they need to respect that and understand that. And so we can no longer be OK with just like taking scraps. That's always my I respect what Kirby's doing over time was I respect people.
I respect the guys who are going out there and being renegade about it in your face. And we all have to know that you have the Million Dollar Baby.
Colton was hard on so many people's mental health. I read an article, you know what you was talking about. You know how you were dealing with your mental health during the pandemic. How how did you maintain, especially after the passing of your father? Yeah, that would stop.
And, you know, honestly, I mean, I don't think any of us really have really dealt with because we're still in the middle of the pandemic. Right. So I think this is going to be eight years of us that are going to be dealing with the repercussions of it. Also, too, for any of us to actually you know, we don't really know how to make progress as time goes on. There are people that have looked at that and then are people that are talking about, you know, maybe later on down the line you might have heart issues and different things like that.
Also, the other part of it is just mentally, we're still under duress. And so for me, it's so funny because as soon as we started, I got back into like I got back in the therapy in March, March, and then I got cold of like maybe March 13 when I did, because I really needed that. That's that's what really helped me. And then, of course, my family and my friends, certainly that therapy, especially after my dad, that I desperately needed someone to talk to because, you know, it's just so surreal.
It's like that. Well, and then my dad was Broncos. Were you able to go to the funeral? That was awful to Charlamagne.
Like, my mom is like was 92 at the time. She's 93. His birthday was just on January 8th every day.
Happy birthday, Mom. And, you know, some of the doctors were like, your mother should not go because again, it was April. So they really didn't know anything about the disease at that point. My mom was like, I can not not show up to my husband's funeral, more like that on a hazmat suit. We could not sit near her. She had to sit in the pew pew by herself. We had no one to speak at the funeral.
We. Everyone is so I was able to get a second test to find out that I was negative, so I was able to go. But there were other members of my family that were sick and could not attend.
Well, you know, that's what you've got to celebrate a life like that forever. You know, I mean, you can't can't live with that one ceremony called a funeral. Yes, sure. You know what I want to ask?
When you were doing when you were heavy into the fashion thing and you were traveling back and forth, how difficult was it for you? Because I know it's difficult for women, but being a black woman, I know it had to be even crazy. And like I seen what they said about Alexander Wing the other day and some of the things that people had to deal with around him. What did you have to deal with?
I'm sure it had to be crazy, you know, but it wasn't ever in your face crazy like that. And I think because the vibe was so deep and people were so deeply involved with celebrities, like not to pop the Mahlon, and we took them along to the big celebrity small town and everything. So we we were so covid in that space. The one thing I will say is that it was the micro aggressions that happened right there. And it was one of those things where we always had to make sure we ensure that we got the right table at the right message to the right front row seat, you know, all those kind of things.
We would always, like I said, keep our foot on their backs and make sure that they were giving us what we deserved and we did not accept any insurance. And, you know, in the world, we can't shop to help with the fashion. That was the first. And then we became the editor in chief of that. I remember when he did really cover up Kim and he literally couldn't get Longnecks Qiana. He had a beautiful opinion when he called over to the that they would not get shoes.
And then Emon, who was best friends with Mr. Blondy. We let her know and she called up and got all the shoes, but I didn't have to go that way. That's right. And we have to flex and use a supermodel to get something done that I mean, Tim was an international star, is an international star. That's a no brainer for them.
But the things that we do with their big difference with that when it came to Rolling Stone because you went into Rolling Stone after that. So would that have gone differently?
Well, Angie, let the difference was, my love, is that Ebony Stone? They didn't want to put black folks on the cover so that you had to fix that. Right. So that wouldn't even come up because they wouldn't. No black people on the cover like that. When I was there, it was crazy. They would rather put a dent in one thing in public than Beyonce said. And they used to tell us black people don't sell magazines.
That's exactly why I purposely get members of the Beatles wrong just to piss white people off. I'll be like Elton John was in the Beatles and was in the Beatles.
I do that on purpose because I know how much they love the Beatles, but the whole thing can mess with them. So get the song. It was just bonkers, you know, again, I was there in 2000 and 2004. And why was that? The only black person in any kind of management space and I don't think they let you be black, could be a receptionist. And that's something else that we talk about, too. When it comes to racism.
It's weird. We hear sometimes even get good entry level jobs. Right, because if someone's a receptionist, that's the face of a big company. That's right. And they didn't want that.
But they have that in the mail room and they have to be insecure.
And I don't know, we got Beverley's.
Before we come back is the Breakfast Club. Good morning, everybody. Is D.J. Envy Angela? Yea, I mean the guy we are at the Breakfast Club, we still have Beverly Smith joining us. Shelby.
Yea I want I want to ask you to be like, you know we live in this area now, especially like I guess in the fashion industry, like, you know beauty comes in so many different forms now. Right. But, but what ways does the fashion industry still like thrive on the insecurities of women allow?
Yeah. I mean listen, first of all, they did by the credo, if they don't make dolls that don't make sense. So now body positivity is not diversity of skin color, is it? But those things are only for them because it means that they get to make more money. They literally really care. Like, you know, we saw over the holidays all of these white magazines, but now they're black is giving guys. I was like one.
You know, all these years you have never paid any attention like Angela. I'm sure you got so many different white fashion magazines. They all want to talk to you now. I'm sure you guys got all some white fitness magazines and fashion magazines and different things. Now they want to invite us to the point.
And a lot of white corporations want to have you on to come talk about diversity.
But you know what I will say about that? And that's what people they give us that nice fat. That's right. I get so I come in and talk about. That was my point and equity in a lot of these situations. Yes, exactly. So that's cool. Well, I'll take it that way. But I don't like these false platitudes. We need to do something that they need to do. So that's one more thing, too.
So when it came to dating, because you talked you did reference cranes in the sky salons, song and sex it away and all of that. And we talk about balance. Where were you able to have a relationship while you were doing the things that you while you were working the way that you were because work was a priority for you?
Yeah, I was having lots of relationships and that was the original Laurie Harvey.
And I think the quality of the young woman should be doing the boring, because when you want to have good stories, juicy stories, you know, in the book, I don't name names, but, you know, I I've had my fair share of dalliances with known, well-known people, and that's nice. And so when I'm like 80 and 90 and I write another book, I'll do the Quincy Jones thing.
And I think that'll keep it low until about six at the top.
So so you don't get during reading that, that's a balance.
That's how you could tell from all that's available for the outside.
So the olden days of the old days, you know, we said we never went home the same way twice. I'm like that now saying, yeah, hold on, Nancy.
That's a good I got an odd question for you. How do you think social media has impacted everybody's overall quality of life when you come from that type of era?
I think social media is really good in the way that now we don't have to wait for the gatekeepers to open up the gates and let us and we can build our own brand. We can have our own content and things like that. But that's also the worst part to me about social media is I see the way stand down the girls. You know, we all miss the Jazmine Sullivan album and album, cult classic, classic, amazing. But when you listen to when they're talking about, you know, why they win and all that kind of stuff, why the girls win, chicks win and all that kind of stuff, I hate that because it's a false narrative.
You know, it does feel like it when you're on the air that those are the only kind of people that to me, that's not true, but it's just perception versus reality.
And so a lot of times the perception on social media is also, you know, speaking of speaking of perception, why did you once not want to give away too much from revelations? But why did you hide the fact that you had a successful advertising career when you were in the world of hip hop?
So what value does that have in the streets?
Is money your boss? I mean, it's crazy because nowadays that would be so embraced that now that would be so obvious.
But back then it was a chick, you just chick. And that's all that mattered to hear that, you know, couldn't pay it out because you had as you were in why you when you had a big test coming up. Oh, no one wanted to hear that. You couldn't leave the club and go to Virginia Beach, the one about the Virginia Beach and Myrtle Beach.
You would take a close look and you will show that everything and not no, honestly, you didn't have to have sex was really an option because it would be so many of us that doesn't care.
They just want the company. Everyone is young.
Remember that to, you know, baby, for a queen like you that is lived, would you rather have serious prayer or Laurie Harvey's fitness?
Oh, no, I'm OK. Make a choice as it really does depend on what kind of girl you want to see the body. Harvey, we don't even know how long it's going to play out either way. Actually, Harvey might get it all done. What we might do a casting on us in and get out while the getting is good, which is what I attempted to do in the book.
I'll see that right now, about twenty eight, because that's when you age out.
Yeah. You don't stay too long at the party. I think that probably you stay a little longer because I don't go outside, but I think people now age probably about thirty, thirty five when my dad was around twenty eight. That's when you stop laughing at the jokes and not the book. I talk about some big if I don't eat out of a window at the Four Seasons Hotel because I told him that we were going to the vendors and instead of coming back to his hotel because he was like we went to a bar and I was like, well, there's more barbecue facilities at the Four Seasons.
Let's see if I've been a young girl. I'm OK. Yeah, we got a copy of the book.
You know, I was one and that meant I was too old to be outside like that because I could no longer laugh and think. That was cute. Yeah, I mean, I agree with you, and I mean, even if you look at the air this year, the same things here, you if you change Bow-Wow and she did what everybody does, she got grown and got married.
That's a great time that she had all the shenanigans.
Before we go bevvy, tell them tell them what revelations means are is revelations is really about the honesty, the authenticity.
And so it comes from the fact that, like when when I first started out, it was about revelations. I do a lot of important thing on the street. People ask people real questions. And then when I had my radio show, it was it was based on the fact that I didn't want my guests to come and give. You can't access because a lot of times the press junket. I was like, give me a revelation. And now the revelation relates to me.
I'm giving you my revelations. This is my testimony. These are my real life lessons. And I hope to impart to you, as I learned that the hard way I did all the bumbles and that you don't have to, but you can just go back and wrap one up on the phone. All right.
That's right. Go out and grab Beby Smith's book Revelations Lessons from a mother, aunt and besta baby. You are a treasure. I appreciate you so much value.
So much, my love. I appreciate you guys, too. It's so great to do this with you and I love it. Thank you, Andy. Thank you, Scharpling. Thank you, Angela.
And I can't wait do we could do it in person next time we see you in person.
Yeah. Next time with one person. Be really nice.
Everything all right. All right. Bessie Smith is The Breakfast Club this morning.
What's wrong with you, man? Morning. Everybody is digging around me and telling me the guy we are to breakfast. I wish you guys could see behind the scenes. We'll get Charlemagne's so damn excited, but shut up.
All right. Let's get to the room as I talk. Make the style.
This is the room. A report with Angelina on the Breakfast Club. Listen up. All right.
Well, VH one has shown a video clip and that video clip is Meghan. This Dalyan auditioning for a love and hip hop. Here's what it sounded like.
It's making a special, you know, a lot of Coke, and I'm just the best female rapper right now. On top of that, I'm a full time OK. I'm a female rapper.
One day I was eighteen and I was like, Mom, I'll be rich. She was like I was like, yes, I can make it down. It's just going to become that household name. Like we are talking about those pop and rappers. I don't want them to be in that conversation. Oh, that's dog.
That's life. You know, in life, you throw a whole bunch of things against the wall to see what sticks. You audition for love and hip hop. And more importantly, in that clip, she spoke life and herself by saying she's going to be one of the hottest female rappers or whatever she said. And she did that to power of intention is a real salute to make the time for making her dreams a reality. But I wonder who from love and hip hop for VH one didn't figure.
I mean and people have worked out for the best how it was supposed to know how to make it on the bus to challenge it made really the LeBron James of busting it open just to genetic freak of nature. Her knees are just able to do things other people's needs aren't whenever she talks. Reminds me of Michael Jackson's moonwalk and she's done the bucket challenge.
Yet you know whose challenge that is? Who who song that is? No, that's actually Cockcroft for his new artist.
Really. Also, she won't because she's definitely going to be doing it, but she's got no idea. I thought it was Nelly.
OK, that's who I thought you said that's Erika Banks.
I'm not sure, but I know my clipboard. Click on these links. I see.
I hear Nelly, Nelly, Nelly in the beginning of the song and then her part comes in. It's great.
Keep calling for me to do the but the Charlie Brown one brigaded in it's from the streets is calling you to do it you know.
Oh you texted you. I did not say you're a liar.
Liar. I think you should never be allowed to see what you have on after you buzz it. All right. Now three is coming and they're saying it's going to be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Ryan Reynolds is overseeing a script right now. OK, we're not going to be filming this year, but Ryan Reynolds did screenshot a tweet featuring the news and he said, first order of business, find the guy who killed Bambi's mom. Hashtag Deadpool three.
I love it.
Dropping the bombs is definitely the most important part of that story, that it will be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I can't wait.
All right. Now, let's get back to this. So, Karen, let's discuss part two of her interview with Gayle King. And Maya Pancevo is her name. She's the one who attacked a 14 year old and falsely accused him of stealing her phone. Now, she said that she is not a racist.
Listen, I wasn't racial profiling whatsoever. I'm a woman. I'm Puerto Rican. I'm a woman of color. I'm Italian, Greek, Puerto Rican. You keep saying you're Puerto Rican.
Does that mean that you can't be racist because you're saying you're a woman of color?
Is that what you mean? Exactly? Well, I would disagree that people of color can be racist. Who do you believe that you should pay a price for this? I don't feel that my. Accusation is a is a is a crime, drama is to finish people who can afford to reconsider this job. Yes, I say yes as Dominican's would you say yes, they can be racist. OK.
And of course, now she's saying that she's the one traumatized, even though this 14 year old went through her yelling and accusing him.
You seem to be not remorseful to have no contrition. You have to understand for this teenage boy who says that he was shattered, who said that he was traumatized and traumatized. You're traumatized, too, because I'm sorry. I have I'm sorry. From the bottom of my heart. He is honestly, he's 14 and that's what they're that's what they're claiming. Yeah, I'm twenty two. I've lived probably just the same amount of my life.
Honestly, I'm just as a kid at heart as he is writing this. It's not me. Well, listen, in the next hour we're going to get to what King Harold Jr.'s parents had to say because they also did an interview. And we'll play that in the next hour.
You have to talk to my therapist about this situation, because all I keep feeling is young lady needs this violence and I don't want to feel like that. I felt like Gail should have backhanded her when she said enough, you know what I mean? And I feel like, you know, that that young man sisters should have put hands on her to mom or somebody.
Well, Gail wasn't in person. They weren't in person or they weren't. No.
Oh, well, my momma would still find a way to back harm me to the guy. All right. I remember one time I was on like, oh, four and my mom was calling me on, like, out three in a food line. And I said something under my breath and it feels like her hand was like, this is incredible. Just came all the way around the island, just bowed back in.
All right, well, who are you giving that donkey to? You know, there's a mom speaking of moms, Martha Tansley, you know, Martha Tansley is the mom of one of the members of our crack, OK? And she needs to come to the front of the congregation. We like to have a word with her this morning.
All right. We'll get into that next. Keep it like this. The Breakfast Club. Good morning.
It's topic time because the phone call 800 five eight five one five one to join into the discussion with the Breakfast Club. Talk about it. Morning, everybody.
Is T.J. in English. I mean, the guy we are the Breakfast Club. Now, if you just joined us, we were talking about donkey today.
Donkey the day to here today went to March for change. She's the mother of Jacob Anthony Chandler.
He's the guy that was dressed like, you know, he he didn't know whether he wanted to be a Minnesota Vikings fan or the New England Patriots fan. He had the horns and the fur and the face paint, and she's crying about him not receiving organic food in jail. All right.
So we're asking you read five eight five one two five. What would you support your son or your child like? She's supporting her child.
I asked myself how you absolutely must not do something stupid like her son. And and he got locked up for it. I would try to support him as much as possible.
That's me as a dad. Yeah. If he if he's used to organic food out the drive, why not? I'm gonna try my hardest. I'm trying to get him out. I would try to make sure he's OK. Protected now, build up his ass for the damage that he did.
But I'm going to support my kid regardless. Always opposed to his parents. Yeah, I mean, you would think so. Yeah. You don't stop loving a person.
I mean, that's your child. You know, I instill in my children that, you know, that there are consequences and repercussions to their actions. But it is some things that, you know, we just really can't do too much for our kids about. You know, my dad would always tell me that trouble is easy to get into and hard to get out of. And this would be one of those situations, you know. I mean but I mean, that's still my that's still my child.
No matter what you do, like, I'm not I'm not going to jump out there and be unapologetic like Matthew Chance was and be like, you know, my my child did nothing wrong. You know, I support what my child did, but I will support my child in that situation. I can support my child without supporting what my child did. Correct.
And that's what I would do it. I mean, I know you've been in trouble before. I've been in trouble before. I think, you know, the first first person that was there for me to make sure and bail me out was my mother and dad, like it was my mother, father. And now when we got home in that car, you know, they gave me cattle, but, you know, in front of everybody they didn't like, that's my son.
I need to get my son. And I think that's what any parent should do. What she did was fine. But saying that what he did wasn't bad was. Yeah, that was wrong.
Yeah. Yeah, that was ridiculous. Him her being unapologetic about what he actually did is the problem, her being a mother and supporting her child when he's down. I expect that that's what mothers do.
Mother's love is unconditional parenting have to be unconditional.
Now, if the son wanted to support Donald Trump, that's fine. If you wanted to go to a protest, that's fine. But then when you got into that building and do something illegal, now you're on your own, you stupid. You're dumb. I'm a bush ass when you get out. All right. Well, let's go to the phone lines if there's any ass left.
And when you get out of jail, mister, what's wrong with you?
Yes, hi. This is Carrie from Florida. Carrie, water down here. Hey, you create content. Are you clearly Caucasian? Aren't you mean. Good morning, ladies. Thank you. Good to talk to you too. Are you. I am Caucasian.
I am a white female down here and one of the most prominent rich areas of Florida. All right. Excuse me. Sorry, I can't stand the things that are going on in the capital right now. And I think it's our biggest thing that we need to do as white people and allies with the BLM movement is to educate our children and to teach them that this has been going on for hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of years and that we have to stop.
It has to stop. There is so much white privilege in this country. I just got into a huge conversation with some of my white friends and they said, oh, well, I grew up poor. White privilege has nothing to do with property rights. Just thinking that you can go into the Capitol building and do all the things that they did the other day and walk right out and walk right out.
And do you have any kids? I can't find them. Come on now. Do you have any kids? No, I do. I have an eight year old daughter.
Now, let's let's say a daughter was older and did that and ran up in the capital, got arrested. Would you support your child? What would you do in that situation? Absolutely.
No, I am teaching my child at a young age right now that this is not what we do. This is not what the family does down here. We take care of ourselves. We take care of our brothers and sisters. I am a huge ally with the BLM movement. I think that it all starts with the raising of the children. And yes, they will get court system some some people will get lost because their parents haven't taught them this.
But I think that us as allies and everything that we have to teach our children that this is not OK.
Karen, let me take you on why people like you give me hope. Only thing still making me feel pessimistic about you that you're from Florida. Other than that, everywhere we are.
Thank you so much, Carrie. We appreciate you for checking in and drop by.
Rude to me going. I get the hang up now. White people. I like that. I'm glad. 805 eight five one 05 where we're at.
We're asking, would you support your child if they ran up in the Capitol building, got arrested and needed some organic food in jail?
Would you support your child? Call us up. Now is the Breakfast Club. Come on.
I know this is your to call me and your opinions to the Breakfast Club type.
Come on. Eight hundred five eight five one five one warning everybody is T.J. and Angela Yee Charlemagne, the guy.
We got the Breakfast Club and we apologize to Carrie, who called that drama was hung up on so, so disrespectful.
You it to you. You ain't to be love to hang up on you and drama coming up on people and Trumbull's handles the phones. It's a quality.
What you mean is the quality. I was getting treated the same.
Are you got your mascot quality? I don't want the coronaviruses.
You got an organic Dick Cheney and you do what you like. And Tracy Dick Van Dyke has. It's happened.
It was his own either or on it. Anyway, let's open up the phone lines.
Aged five eight five one, two, five. What we're asking, if your child ran up in the Capitol building and got arrested, would you support them like the mom supported her son? They said, my son needs or can't food in jail. Would you support your child like that? Hello. Who's this? Good morning.
My name is Melissa. Hey, Melissa, you're you're another one of our faithful Caucasian, white, Caucasian listeners, right?
Actually, my children are. What do you. I'm I'm on I'm along for the ride with you.
But you can't listen to the show. Your kids listen to the show when they got you. Oh, you're completely OK. All right.
But you are Caucasian. Yeah, she's Caucasian. Oh, you kids told you to call in?
No, actually, I just dropped my daughter off at school and I heard what you said on the on air.
Oh, OK. What are your thoughts? What would you do? Well, my thoughts are I would not approve of what he did and I would not tell people that what he did was right. I would support my son. But breaking into the White House and destroying property and frankly, destroying any property, rioting and burning down cities is wrong no matter what color you are.
So would you let them sit in jail or would you try to you just let us stop trying to you're trying to equate the Black Lives Matter protest. And but there was some people that was looting and rioting during that, but they weren't part of the protest.
The big difference between making a calculated strike on the Capitol building is mostly peaceful protests where black lives matter.
What I agree with the fact I would support my child, I wouldn't support your opinion. And and I'm just saying either it's a fact.
No, no, no, no. I mean, listen, yes, looting and rioting is wrong, but that's not what BLM protesters were doing.
But that's not what we're talking about right now, ma'am. I mean, it's you know, you do a curveball to kind of normalize it. But we're just asking if your daughter or your son ran up in the Capitol building and wild out, would you support him or would you just leave him there? Absolutely.
I would support him, but he would stay there. That's his decision. And honestly, I think that we're all being played here.
Talk to us, Melissa. Come on. Give us some of that good non conspiracy theories.
No, I think we're all being played here, here against each other and explain. I don't think it's right. I grew up on the south side of Fort Wayne. I went to South Side High School. You know, I had black friends. We were cool.
And we go, all right.
I just want to look like energy this morning because you just like dad, you got to have kinds of people are saying, I have black flags. I know it must be right there, but you got to have conversations with people who disagree with you on a good part.
I would like to ask her next, were your kids actually there last week like they might have been? I always got mad because she had Puerto Rican friends, because they just let the lady told me.
Hello, hi. I'm on real.
Yes, you did the radio anymore.
Hey, what's going on? This is your boy Choksi. All I'm calling about to ask you questions real quickly, no one to talk to, and he's from South Carolina, sir. So disappoint. You got a problem with the folks who got me to say, look, I love you all talking to you. I love you. I want to send you a copy of my wife's book because I think it would be good for that. OK, stop promoting cheesy MO bracelets.
I sent you a text message. They are garbage.
The real reason I'm calling see bracelets don't even know what that is.
Well, you've been promoting it in tennis bracelets. Don't do that.
You know, you're a ho ho. You you look you're selling all types of things on that or even on Facebook like that. Not only fails, you sell a tennis bracelet on Facebook. Am I wearing the bracelets to a prosecutor? OK, I got to go. Please stop telling people that the public defender's office is a cheap way for people to get legal defense or whatever that is.
You're doing all this extracurricular. I don't know how happiness is, not what it's not a poem is there is no use the work of defender's office.
So you tell me you have people who you tell me that people who work for the legal service. You telling me people pay leave? Are you telling me people who got money hire public defenders?
No, no, I'm not saying that's or what I'm saying is I just don't want you to denigrate the public defender's office. In your segment, you said that they will like a poor man or no lawyer. No what I know I didn't do what I said was what I said was this dude is begging for organic food in jail so he can afford organic food on the outside but can't afford a real lawyer on the inside. That's what I said.
I I'm not disagreeing with you. I agree with everything you said. I'm just saying, as a former representative of the public defender's office, please talk about how to fund the more so that way they would have the extra services and all the stuff that the other people over work can change.
They can break down cases like other lawyers can answer the question.
You sound hungry, can. No, not at all. So I used to work there, so I understand.
No, no, no, no. You sound hungry. Take what you want to offer, what you want to give him. King, you sound hungry.
No, no. I just want you to talk about the more funding like defunding the police to said that money other places one. Oh, true, true, true, true. That we're going to do more. But if I just said money then Drew this this wasn't this wasn't necessarily the topic this morning, but this is The People's Show. So if you want to switch the topic, you have the right to know.
But like even say, just create the conversation to go to another conversation to create a board of inquiry. That's right. The bosses challenge all day. That's right. Well, thank you for coming on wearing one of your chained up, wearing another thing.
Huh? All right, huh? I don't want to know what these bracelets are that I'm selling and how can one. I can't believe you on Facebook selling tennis bracelets either.
I didn't know that either. I want to give back my PC, my cut. All right. Well, what's the moral of the story? I'm confused.
I don't even know what the hell are we talking about. I got it. I don't you know, I don't even know what we started talking about. I don't know what we just finished talking about. I'm just here sipping my Starbucks tea, my. And my God.
All right. Well, if you're looking for a bracelet's, go to my Facebook page. Allegedly, I'm selling out of I don't I don't know what I want to see these bracelets.
So, I mean, they might be dope. And I made a whole lot of envy fans only feet and feet on what I said. You said, you know what I mean? And selling tennis bracelets on MySpace. He while I bet.
Why not spend them. Well, well, we got to be. Yes. And let's talk about this revival show where the cast members are going to make more than one million dollars per episode. All right.
We'll get into that. An excellent DJ Ampicillin bracelet's and we got more. Don't move is the Breakfast Club. Come on, wake up. It's The Breakfast Club.
Hey, morning, everybody. Is D.J. Envy. Angela Ye shall I mean the guy we are the Breakfast Club.
We lost you on on revolt. You are vulnerable. The show is over. Oh wait. Laugh at me. I'm laughing at shame right now.
Just be little stupid stuff. Like they posted the video of Don Lemon crying and Rick Ross just posted under it.
No lemon. Let's get to the rumors. Let's go.
It's about who's going to. A report on this is the room, a report with Angelina on the Breakfast Club. But earlier, we played you the video, the audio of the woman who attacked Keyon Harold Jr., the 14 year old, and we're calling her Soho Karren, she does not feel like she had done anything wrong. Well, now the parents of Chian, Harold Junior, are speaking out about the woman actually attacking their son and accusing him of stealing a cell phone.
And she was completely wrong when that happened. Here is what they had to say about what happened in the hotel and about her apology.
Listen, I feel like her apology was as genuine as when she was just you.
You're 22. I got it. I know it said a lot. I have an issue with the idea of entitlement versus character, basically, when it comes to her apology.
He said so. Right. OK, so all right.
Now, can Junior's mother also spoke about the trauma that he's suffering from and she spoke about an incident that happened between the two of them showing how traumatized he is when I went to hug him from behind.
He can't stop. He literally turns down, said, Mom, can I ask you not to do it? I can't. I can't. Wow.
He keeps on asking the question, why? Like, why me, Mom? You know, I wouldn't steal anything. I didn't know her as a mother to have to answer that question. She can feel her son's trauma because usually when you know, you get help from the back, you relax, right? I knew you were going to say something about that flight. Why are you trying to hug me from the back, like, what's wrong with you, man?
What is wrong with you? Oh, you know what? I'm not talking to you on the one.
All right, now, Sex in the City, the cast of that show we told you already is coming back to HBO. Max is in the works. The women are going to be making one more than one million dollars per episode. There have been 10 half hour episodes that have been ordered. Production will start in late spring, but nobody got a budget for a girlfriend miniseries.
They got their budget for another Sex and the City project, paying them women a million dollars apiece. But nobody got a budget for a girlfriend miniseries. What about his girlfriend? Plans that need closure, huh? They put it up on Netflix. They broke records on Netflix screaming Why that?
We can't get a miniseries, but we get another secretary who after that. Let's get it done. Get it done. Now, Kevin Hart has signed a four a film Netflix deal. Maybe he can get it done.
You might know if Kevin can't do it, it can't be done. Trust me. So this partnership calls for Kevin Hart to be the star of at least four films that he's to with the first look film producing as part of that as well.
So they made a big commitment with this. And Kevin Hart said partnering with Netflix is an amazing opportunity for and myself. I'm excited to act in and produce cutting edge films with Netflix. I'm extremely grateful to Ted Sarandos and Scott Stuber. We share the same creative vision and always put the audience first on a close bond with Kevin Hart.
It is one thing Kevin knows how to do is how to get that opportunity and that money out of these eight damn corporate people.
He knows how to get there. Yes, he does. That's my one of my bet.
The last time one of my business partners, the last time Netflix has done a commitment like this, it was with Adam Sandler and they said it was in the one hundred and fifty million dollar vicinity. Sounds about right. All right, well, that and I do want to play this to Chadwick Boseman widow Talisman, that we're both men, she made a very rare public appearance. This is the first time she has spoken since his passing. And yesterday, she did accept the Gotham Awards Chimbu prize in his honor.
Listen to this.
It is my honor to receive this award on behalf of my husband and acknowledgement not only of his profound work, but of his impact on this industry and this world. Chad, thank you. I love you. I am so proud of you.
Keep shining a light on us, dropping close bombs from our South Carolina pregnant chad with both hands in here that we need to get that statue up of Chadwick.
Chadwick Boseman in South Carolina. All right. Put that statue up, Anderson. Anderson, South Carolina is build that statue. Damn it. Charlie Bolden absolutely deserves it. Well, that is your rooma report. All right.
Well, shout to revolt. We'll see you tomorrow, everybody else. The People's Choice mixes up next. A Marine's birthday. So we're going to ask and Raekwon, the chef, Raekwon Yap's, we will get some of their own in the mix.
You won't believe in Raekwon. To some, Raekwon is a memory salute. A Marine. That's the home. All right. At home, it's the Breakfast Club. Good morning.
That was pick up your feelings, warning everybody what you know how disrespectful it is for a woman to tell you.
Pick up your feeling. Can you imagine if a person told you to pick up your feelings? Sounds like somebody said that to you. Before you tell me to pick up your feelings, I'm going to say, well, you know, you might want to go pick up your Valtrex, OK? Because we had unprotected sex. Not that I have heard, but somebody hurt me.
I'm so what I would say I would say that I would say that because my feelings were hurt and my ego would be so hurt. You know, I'm saying men have very fragile egos. My ego would be so hurt. I would say something like that. I'm sure. I'm sure I would.
Let me ask you a question back in your day, right back, back, back a long time ago, right. Yes. When a young lady wouldn't let you in the house because she felt that you were too dirty, what was your reply that never happened?
A woman. She never said I was too dirty. Where'd you get this from? Well, she knows.
Why didn't she let you in the house and she was embarrassed?
No, no, listen, listen, listen, girls, SWAT guys out to, you know, so you guys cut it out.
I'm not talking about any of my hotels. If you can't see your hotel to write songs about your hotels like Jazmine Sullivan, don't talk about my goodness, it's write positive.
Note A We up back is the Breakfast Club. Good morning.
Everybody is the envy. Angela ye shall I mean the guy we are the Breakfast Club. Now gentlemen, you've got a positive note I do listen to.
Positive note is simply this. If we don't change, we don't grow. If we don't grow, we aren't really living. Breakfast Club is.
