Listen to Lolita podcast on the radio app, Apple podcast or wherever you listen to podcasts.

The cup is at the end of the game and a again. Ha ha ha ha. Yo, Charlamagne, what are my doing?
Well, what happens when are we, like the world's most dangerous morning show time? Let me tell you something before we begin interviews, they say you cannot you cannot say this. We don't want to talk about everything. No one benefits from getting in here.
Just talking record. I've got to be honest, I don't think it's going to make it 10 years. Maintain a strong breakfast club, man. Right. So you know what that means. Ten years have been nuts. David David David Nutt state has been nuts.
The Breakfast Club, a wake up social show in the morning. Wake up, wake up. Wake up. Ask this is your time to get it off your chest, whether you're mad or blessed. We want to hear from you on the Breakfast Club. Hello.
Who's this? Hello, my name is Melissa. Hey, Melissa. Long Island.
Hello. Hello. Hey, Melissa.
To get it off your chest. Melissa. All right. So I was thinking that I would much rather lick the memorandum as booty than take this vaccine.
First of all, you got your out of context right now. Explain to people what happened, because they're going to be like what is wrong with Melissa? Just calling it the early in the morning. OK, yesterday we had a topic where we asked you, would you rather take the vaccine like a random strangers boom boom now makes it due to the fact that I don't feel people are really doing much research into the vaccine and don't realize that it's actually like a genetic DNA manipulation opposed to the traditional vaccine where, you know, they just put a little bit of the virus in the body, fights it all, like you had said.
Same here. I mean, I just, you know, flu shot, whatever, growing up. Now that, you know, I can make my own decisions and whatnot, people aren't realizing also this actually produces antibodies against a protein that is essential to reproducing to placenta.
What you what you said earlier is what I read yesterday, that there is no actual covid-19 in the vaccine like, you know, in flu. They put a little bit of the flu in you. So you get it to do the antibodies. They don't have that in the vaccine from what I read yesterday.
Yeah, no, this is actually like it's Haiji highjacking cell genes then causing you to be poor or I guess I mean stomach supposably, who knows? But I'm just saying I think people need to be doing their own research on this. And that includes, you know, looking in the ingredients in the vaccine and then researching the ingredients themselves.
And nobody read ingredients on somebody eating some cereal right now. I don't know what's in it. Right. But, you know, how do you know how many people's butts is just dirty?
You just want to eat all type of issue, but then take the vaccine. Yeah, sure.
We'll just do some research on them. But maybe before you you don't want anal snacking.
OK, well, I'll tell you what, you're right that these people need to be doing the right thing as well. No doubt you thought about issues like, you know what, now you're right. I do need to research you, but I have a go ahead.
You Listerine. Say you have a good day, you two. Hello. Who's this? Hello, this is Jerry. What's up, Jerry?
Hey, how are you doing, man? What's going on? He's not much. How you doing Salomé. How are you doing. And be good. Yeah. What happened to Jonathan where you went to jail right now.
But don't, don't play that game. I'm not. I'm not. And so I'm, I'm like, Jerry, the jeweler will go with that. OK, all right. Get off. You change it. Yeah man. So I brought up my work. I don't want to talk about my job because I'm not trying to lose it, but I do have some to take off my chest. My wife's a nurse and you know, these hospitals are starting to get fuller, fuller.
And it seems like people the more the worse it gets, the more they just say, no, mass, I'm not going to social distance. I work with people who have nothing will put their medicine. They don't wanna put a mask on. They say they don't want a social distance is getting to the point where I only want to come to work. No, no, no. I work hard and it's important for me to work hard. But it's really it's really getting to a point where I don't even know how to feel about people work.
You know why? Because they don't wear a mask and stuff that they're not wearing masks.
And I mean, you're dealing with people that they want to beat up on you one feet away, two feet away, you know, talking to your face. And you got to be trying to tell them to separate all the time. That's right. What's wrong with boundaries?
That was wrong with letting them know that, like, look, I want you near me. You awin Nomad's matter. I do that all the time. Being on Nomad's going back up, man.
And that's what it is. I mean, we're telling them, but, you know, at the workplace, they got to have regulations and everybody got to be following the regulations of certain people. It's not expected of them, you know, and that's just and that's a big deal. We can't even get the workplace to, you know, do things correctly. How are you going to get average people out there in the street, you know, put a mask on and you know how well we can't.
And that's the problem. And that's why we're in this situation we're in now is a spoiled brat. Americans don't listen, we don't follow rules. Well, yeah, and I just wanted to say, I just want to shout out my mom, Lissette Williams, I love you to death. I love her to death. My brother, Prince William doesn't want to say one thing about my boy survived the Q and a Miami that really built rap. I don't know if you guys ever heard of them.
Oh, but check them out so bad. Look, you guys, I'm telling you the truth. Seven La Q Thank you. Bye bye.
Get it off your chest. Eight hundred five eight five one two five one. If you need to vent, hit us up now is the Breakfast Club.
Good morning. Wake up, wake up, wake up. This is your time to get it off your chest. What are you man or blast. We want to hear from you on the Breakfast Club.

I'm standing up here in Columbia. I'm sorry. I'm staying up here. Let's take the turkey right now, OK? Yeah, I was I was trying to give you some advice, maybe because, like, I've been stand up here since I came home from prison.
I was not enough to tell them, but I wanted to change my life around. But I think I came up to the person that I came up here with family. But me and the person I thought normal. So it's like I want to go back home.
But after learning the place to be, my family trying to get a job anywhere. But it's also hard for me up here because I ain't got no financial support, nobody to help me out of. No. Can't afford it.
Well, it sounds to me like, you know, you already know you needed a change of environment. So, you know, if you know, you don't need to be in EC and you can scratch that off the list, that's not that's not a that's that's not a thing, right? Yes, sir. So you just got to stay where you are and figure it out, make it work. What it is. What is it that you want to do?
I like I've been I've been working since I've been up to. I'm working for this service right now, but I could get behind it.
But it's hard because, like, I had Rochow back a little while ago because I my windshield got broke. It's like other things that I didn't have to deal with doing doing this. But then that's going on. But it's like I said, is it's hard and I have nobody there you're to play. Well, listen, you're going to be fine, my brother. It just takes patience. All right? Yes, they're all right. Keep pushing.

Deejay N.V., Angela Ye shall I mean, the guy we are, the Breakfast Club, is still kicking in with Kirk Franklin.
Yea Kirk while you're at home during this time, have you been inspired musically just by everything that's going on around you?
You know, if I can be honest with you, one of the reasons why I bought this shirt today is because I started by going to therapy, doing this pandemic. I now it's I've been going to therapy now Akino for about the last 30 years, you know, dealing with not just dealing with my abandonment issues, dealing with, you know, just a rejection I had as a kid, a lot of the trauma that I've suffered as a young man.
And so therapy and my faith have been my they just been my life. And so the trauma of of, first of all, the pandemic and then that what's happening now is that I started going back to my therapist and I can be honest and tell you that the motivation to do a lot of music has been off and on just because I've been just really struggling. I've been really struggling, trying to get people just to hold on. It's it's almost like what is the physician go when he said, you know, I'm getting myself back together just because I think that I'll need the sun, but I need a sun to its I needed that versus moment to.
Now what have you been going.
You said you were going through a lot and I'm sure people are going through the same thing. What will you deal with that you said, you know what, I got to go see a therapist right now was an anxiety. What was it that was like.
I have to. Yeah, yeah, well, you know, I've always struggled with anxiety and then, you know, just as a creative, I think almost every creative and I'm quite sure all three of you this just because you all are curators and then the attention that you all get and and and and just to grab that platform, you know, to whom much is given, much is required. And a lot of times people don't know. And of course, you can imagine this when you live in the public eye, your highs and lows are different.
Mm hmm. And so that type of pressure, that is not realistic. So, you know, just the pressures of the world or or or people trusting that you always got to answer and that you always have to be ready to give an answer, can be very discouraging, can be very heavy. And and and I carry the weight of people's hurt very real, like like no cap. I'm telling you, I will not be doing this music if I did not believe in to do that, I quit.
So it's like I got to have somebody to be able to block this and I can't go to wipe it with that every day. You know, she needed me to be strong with her. So it's like I got to go to somebody who I can go this Christmas to send me off. It's like somebody else got shot. What do I do, man? It's like people ain't working right now, you know? And I got a whole crew that I got to take care of, you know, what to do.
And so that type of pressure is I need somebody to point to me so that when I get on these incredible platforms with you all have something to be able to say.
Absolutely. And you know what's so interesting, man? You know, prior to prior to the quarantine, my therapist had been trying to tell me for the longest let go of things that you can't control, you know what I mean? And I could never grasp that concept. Yeah. Until the quarantine, we had never experienced anything like coronavirus. So you know what I did? I flipped it. Right. It it I started leaning more into my face because I already had gotten what I needed from going to therapy.
All of those those those past these past couple of years, I started leaning into my face. So it was more Bishop T.D. Jakes most referring to my pastor, John Graham.
Minister Farrakhan, you know, I mean, that is the job that I want to be able to communicate to to culture as well, is that at the end of the day, you are spiritual beings, that if you lived your life depended upon the natural world to be able to feel something that the natural world does not have the ingredients to do. That's why that's why no matter how good sex has been for a lot of human beings, a lot of people don't stay with that same one, always looking for something different.
No matter how much that drug made you feel at that moment, you're looking for the next heart. Just because the natural world can't speak to the depth of the crowd, your soul, your soul was created for something bigger, that the human world is not able to be able to fulfill it with. And so that's why I'm always trying to that's what I'm always trying to be a messenger to clean up what a lot of the history of Christianity has messed up because Christianity and Jesus are not always synonymous.
Hmm, explain a little bit. Well, Christianity is the form in which we try to communicate what the teachings of Jesus is and or what the teachings of Jesus was, but in the sinfulness of man throughout the narrative of that historical context, there has been a lot of distraction. There's been a lot of abuse of power. There's been a lot of misuse of the statements of Jesus Christ. But that does not mean that the historic individual of Jesus Christ and what he stood for and for what he preached is always reflected in the actions historically, whether whether through the Crusades, whether to be a conquest, whether through Jim Crow, whether through colonialism, Christianity was always leading.
And those narratives and we've got to confess those things in order to get it right. We've got to confess what's wrong. And so that's why I'm always an advocate for four platforms like apologetics to be able to communicate the historical accurate narrative of the gospel of Jesus Christ, as well as pointing out the bull and the foolishness that Christianity historically has done. Absolutely.
I got one last quick question for Brother Kirk. I was watching Bishop T.D. Jakes Sunday. And this is this is a conversation that a lot of Myanmar folks have been having. Do you believe that we're in the in the Times?
You know, I think that a lot of people can be so enamored with the conversation of what this means versus what do we do? Yes, I think that it's easier to to try to figure out what's happening out there instead of looking at this moment to see what needs to be fixed in here. Hmm, does that make sense what I'm saying? Perfect sense. Mm hmm. So I would encourage people I encourage people to stop trying to be so worried about where God is.
Instead of trying to be more focused on it's got me moving. Hmm. Thank you, Jack. Appreciate it so much. This is an honor. Thank you. Thank you, sir. All right. Miss Kirk Franklin is 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., M.V. Angela Charlamagne, the guy we are The Breakfast Club. Good morning.
Good morning. What's happening? Happy holidays. What are we talking about today?
And if you're just joining us, we're talking about Mel B. Now, she does something I think is pretty odd. You explain what she does.
Well, she is. She actually got a tattoo removed of her ex. You know, she's getting divorced. And she got instead of laser removal for that tattoo, she got a cut out of her body and she keeps the skin in a jar.
That's what that is called. Root. That is voodoo. Black magic. All right. You cut the name off your skin, put it in the jar, have a little witchdoctor, something, put a little whammy on it. Don't nobody touch that job, because if you do, the spell will be broken. And as long as that name is in that jar, Stephen Belafonte will have erectile dysfunction for the rest of his life. At the least, call for a frog to everything from pass goes in the garbage.
Nothing from the past. No letters, no pictures, nothing. Everything thrown away.
Yeah. I actually have a lot of things from exes. I actually have all my letters and cards and notes that I used to pass in class and all of that and a huge box.
Well, I mean, listen, how long you been. Twenty four years. Married. Seventeen. I've known my woman. Twenty years married for ok I'm forty. There's no excuse. All right. I only remember what an X is. An X.
Oh I have this many from high school because nobody really wrote letters after that. What I'm saying.
So if your woman is still saving letters from high school, that letter really means a lot to her and that person. But I have a lot to her. But the person that wrote that letter, you know, could never be duplicated.
You know, I'm saying like, I also grew up as a as a writer, like when I was young in a you know, and I read a lot. And so I keep all of those things even from, like, my friends who are women.
Yeah, but you get married, you imagine being married for 17 years. All right. And you've been with this guy that you married to since your was kids. But you keep in letter from the exes. I mean, you keeping letters from when you was like seventeen, eighteen. Like those first feelings of love? No, not those first feelings of love has been duplicated at all. Feelings the like. No. What do you talk. No man has ever made you feel the way that that first person I always feel.
So I don't, I don't know just we didn't I think. What do we talk about. Magic Fingers early. No, no, no magic fingers. But I bought those letters up and what are you talking about? You just joined us to talk about nothing. What are you talking about? Nothing to my nothing. You sound insecure. Natasha.
Hi. Good morning, Natasha. Good morning. You keep anything from your ex? I definitely do not. The only thing I can relax is our son.
Oh, and I'm glad you kept that to you. I wouldn't let that go to you that I had to get rid of the cell phone that I used to text him from because I would search and I typed in Bay and then he'd pop up, you know, delete it. He's still like, oh, it's like pop up. I was like, I've got to get rid of it.
All right. You I manage it. Thank you, Mama. Naduah, what was that? Mama, did she call you lady? Oh, no, she called me.
She said baby. Oh, well, now do you throw everything away from your past relationships, everything away?
Like, I'm not keeping that memory of it all. I thought everything away like to live my wife together and like it would come over. You still say, oh, you got my share. You are just find a way to come back and I'll be right back away. You know, you ain't got to come back now. What did she give you? A Rolex? Oh, that's definitely not. That's my one.
Oh, now it is all about the cost of the gift. You ain't give it back. No Bentley. Yeah, give it back. No type of car and you ain't give them back. No jewelry.
Oh no money. No man. You're going to be picky and choosy about what to keep and what you give away or something that gives you.
You ain't got no choice but to keep like herpes that everybody out there for everybody out there who gave them herpes and he got no choice but to live with that and keep that for the rest of their life. Hello. This is where I can do all. Rakeem, do you keep anything from your ex? Loubriel No need to.
I've been married four years, my girl for seven and there's no need to borrow. You got a hold of the pennsbury. You might as well try to head back in that direction.
Yeah. Yes. I feel I don't understand why, you know, somebody would hold on to something from the past, especially if they've been together for so long.
I can imagine being with somebody for 17 years old and 12 years old that they would tell somebody why why they didn't so close to you. I'm just telling you, you can point a finger pointing, fingers pointing magic finger at me. I'm just saying he was writing letters to my wife when they were ten years old. She kept it as memories is, oh, that's so cute. And I buried them. I don't like it. When is it a passing?
You shouldn't have been married for forty years. How long I've been married seriously. Seventeen years I've been together. Twenty four. Twenty four. You know, reinvaded bookkeeping stuff. That's what I said. And that's why I burned them letters up.
It's so crazy because I do have like I said, I have a huge box filled with like letters from my friends when they went away out of town from X's like everything. Together in a box I haven't even separated about our recent exes, she used to say this is often like high school and college, but, you know, Rolex in high school. Yeah, I'm talking about a box of letters. Oh, but my whole thing is what I'm saying is that it doesn't really I never thought of it like is something that would be offensive to anybody.
I used to be a nobody my quarters.
Now I even found a watch that somebody gave my my wife when I think they were like 12, 13.
I definitely ran over that watch with my gosh, I got all these little trinkets. All was little 12 days of Christmas. Were you buying all this stuff? And you think you've been watches from middle school in ten years or so? Maybe they just little cutie cutie. I think that's cute, but they're all going now. It was going to grow up. They are going now and now. Watch.
I ran over 10 times. The memories are so cute. Rebecca Hey. Good morning, Rebecca. OK, yeah. So I have like an Xbox I like not like the video games. Yeah. I was like, OK, me too. Yeah. So I dated this guy from like eighth grade, the senior year of high school and I kept literally everything. But the weird thing that I kept was he gave me a lemon. Lemon lemon is very short.
The he gave me a lemon and I still have it in the box. Not like rotten or anything.
It's a god damn damn.
I know it doesn't smell or anything. It's like hollow and hard and I don't like him in his heart.
Why are you keeping it. That's disgusting. I hope it was like the reason why we started talking in the first place.
They bonded over Lemon.
You convinced me that it was like this really rare, like lemon from like Cuba or something like that. I like I don't even know.
Sounds like a red flag to me. He lied to you immediately. I can't stand the shot. No way. What if you fell in love with a man?
I gave you a lemon. Wait until somebody gives you an apple or a watermelon. You won't really be head over here.
You need to make lemonade out of that. No, I'm not going to do that. I don't curse. All right. What is moral of the story? The moral of the story is, man, let's say a prayer and salute everybody out there who is keeping things from the excuse that they can't get back like herpes. Keep it locked.

Miss Phylicia Rashad, welcome. Thank you. Good morning. I feel like you're my mom.
I've been watching you for so long. I feel like I know everything about you. I feel like your mom. Hey, Mom, I want to take more time on the morning sun.
How you do need to read yours. You do read to be. No, he's not. No, I don't. Now, I'm I hate doing interviews. And this is one time I really hate doing interviews because I would love to be in your presence. Absolutely.
That's very kind. Well, you know what? When we can, we will. How have you been maintaining through this whole pandemic? Well, let's see.
First of all, I've been very grateful. I've been very grateful to be in my home and to have a home to be in. I've been very grateful that my family and friends are fine. I've been very grateful to be able to assist people in the ways that I've been able to do and I've had work to do. Of course, it's different because everything is through the computer.
I pray we will not live like this forever, same as it ain't natural and it ain't good for the eyes either. What have you learned about yourself mentally and spiritually?
Anything new? Yeah, you know, you ask that question and I'm always a little hesitant to say these things because. Well, anyway, I'll just say it because you asked. It's so important to find that silent space inside the mind. Mm hmm. It's so important to find that space, especially now, because there's so much clatter and so much chatter and so much pull to the left and then pull to the right and just being pull, pull, pull if you allow it to be that way.
And then the mind, you know, it has its own way of jumping around. Oh, so it's so important to find the silence.
You know what if we stopped pining for the things that we think we don't have and look at what we do have and what we can do, it's a much better place to come from, I think. Yeah.
And it allows us to create a better place. Right. So, yeah, there are things that that I that I do miss. I miss live theater. Yeah. Mm hmm. Just the other day I was thinking how privileged we've been for so long without understanding the fullness of our privilege to be able to go to a movie. Right? Yes. Yes. Able to sit in the theater or in a restaurant or to hug people or to or to be with people when they're making their transition from this form to the next.
You know, it's we didn't understand our full privilege. And maybe, you know, when we if it changes, I should say when it changes. Yeah. I just don't know what's going to change to. But we'll come into a we should come into a better understanding of just what the privilege of being with people is. Mm hmm. And maybe will be kinder to one another.
How are your kids been. How have they been. Oh they've been around or they've been staying away. How is that been?
Well, my son lives on the West Coast. My daughter at the beginning of this pandemic had just returned from Italy. Mm. She had been in Italy and she had just returned and I was just returning from work on the Empire in Chicago. Then everything shut down and my daughter wouldn't come and, and see me stay away from me.
That's right, she did.
But what she did do when I was returning home, she came to the house before I arrived and she had stocked the refrigerator and the shelves and she said, Mommy, you don't go outside, you don't go to the store, you stay here. And she would call to make sure I was not outside and I had to laugh at that. I said, you're monitoring me like I'm you, but I'm not you and me.
And when it's time, I'm going outside and they said the same thing.
They were like, no, no, no, no, no, I'm on it. I'm your parent. I'm going out when I want to go. But don't think for a moment that what you did and what you said was not appreciated.
I mean, I of course, the Queen. Have you ever had to go off on any of your real kids the way you went off on Vanessa?
You're going to see the wretched and you're down in Baltimore having big fun. Why don't you, Vanessa? Isn't that where you were? Didn't you go down there to Baltimore and have big fun? Vanessa, tell me, didn't you go for big fun?
Mom, shut up. Don't you dare open your mouth when I'm. Asking you a question, I only hope that you can have the same experience. Vanessa, I hope that one day you come to realize exactly how it feels to think that your child's life is in danger. You have taken us from levels of frenzy, panic to stress. And now that we know you're OK range.
I said I was sorry.
This is not going to happen. And I know you are lying right now.
Go to bed. Are you kidding? Of course.
So what is your motivation when you did that? I was so understanding what that energy is was helped. Yes, I understood that energy very well. Yes. I mean, you know, people say, oh, oh, you were just a perfect mother.
And I look at them and smile and say thank you. But, you know, it's easy when you're scripted and the children are scripted, too. In real life, there are no scripts. Yeah.
You know you know, the beauty of that wretched episode I've lived long enough to where I knew exactly what Vanessa's character felt like. And then I've lived long enough to know exactly what your character felt like in that something.
Yeah, because teenagers children was. I mean, it's part of being a teenager, right? Yeah. Yeah. It seems like a scary annatto.
Oh, it's a oh come on. It's so it's so much scary. It is. And and it's not young people's fault.
We are very, very, very distracted. And our children were being inundated with some of the worst kinds of diversions.
And look and it's they have a language that you don't even know where, you know, I think that if if we as adults were cognizant of the fact that every single thing we say and do creates a memory for our young, we might say, and do differently. Absolutely. Because what do you really want the young person to learn? Here's the question. What is the most important thing for your young person to learn? The most important thing that I wanted my children to learn was who are you really?
Mhm. And that's an inner journey. And you don't get to go on the inner journey pointing fingers outside of yourself. Another disturbing thing I heard recently from two different sources who don't even know each other. They both worked in the field of pediatrics, they both pediatricians and one, they're friends of mine. And one of them said that in her waiting room, she has these books for children. Right. A three year old child picks up the book and doesn't know how to turn the page.
She tries to scan it.
Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy.
Not I a but this OK. And then somebody on the other side of the country told me the same thing. Wow. Because young people are being given these devices and they know and they know that this becomes your source of information and your only source of information. Right. Which means you're going to receive what somebody wants you to receive. That's right. I think we want our young people to think deeper than that.
We got more with Phylicia Rashad when we come back. Don't Move is The Breakfast Club. Good morning.
I don't I mean, I didn't mean it, but, you know, I been everybody is D.J. Envy, Angela Charlamagne, the guy we are the Breakfast Club, we're still kicking it with Phylicia Rashad now from Houston. What made you come all the way to the East Coast to go to college, to go to BCU? And why was it important to go to a BCU? The second real. You go ahead.
Yeah, well, I wanted to be an actor and I wanted to study drama. Right. And I was applying to all these schools and my father just looked at me and he let me do all that and he said, You're going to Hollywood. And I said, Oh, but Dad, what about this one? And this he said, You're going to Howard.
I never thought about going to a school that wasn't an BCU. And that was because of my experience from a child. Before I started elementary school, I was a nursery school on the campus of Texas Southern University trying to play.
So, you know, I'm trying to play you. You see, I wanted you to see the Hampton alumni.
I just wanted you to see that my grandmother went to him. Oh, really? Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. Vivian Elizabeth Graham. Yes, she did. She made a great decision. Oh, yes, she did. I realize in greater measure how very fortunate I am to have attended an BCU, not only for the astute professors who were teaching there because they were of the highest caliber, but also for the other side of life, that social life, that socialization that helps to develop you as a as a as an adult.
You know, did you ever did you ever lose yourself playing such an iconic role as Claire Huxtable, meaning that, you know, did you ever forget who you were and.
No, OK, OK, now that that was impossible, because every every day I came home to my family and had none of that Cliff Huxtable stuff.
When you walking out, well, you know, it's like, no, it's like, OK, so my best friend from college came to see a taping and she said, Phylicia, you should be ashamed of yourself taking those people's money for being yourself and at home.
I mean, when I say this, I people imagine I always imagine what my life was like.
Mm hmm. Johnny had no idea I would come home and cook and prepare dinner.
Wow. From fresh produce. No canned anything. Because I want my family to eat healthily. Some things you can get it again. But most things, vegetables and stuff have to be fresh. And I would do that every day.
And in the early years of the of the show, let's say a third year, I had my baby with me. I was a nursing mother. I took Condola to the studio with me every day. Wow. Yeah. And, you know, it's and I came home with her at night and I was with my family. I wasn't out clubbing. I wasn't you know, I wasn't doing stuff like that. I didn't have time for that. And then, you know, there was school and it was homework.
Her her brother's thirteen years older than she was. And he was in the eighth grade when she was born.
And I mean, you know, there I was. And it's like you've got to hit it every day. Mhm.
So your daughter was born to be an actress. She grew up in it. She was all around it. She lived it. So she was, she was born to be an actress. She knows she did. She grew up around the work and she saw what the work was. Her work ethic is incredible.
You know, speaking of the work, I think you got black coming out on the six right there. On the six. Yep.
But you've held the name of America's mother for so years. Are you intentionally accepting roles in movies like A Fall from Grace and Black Box to kind of shift that image of you? I guess a villain?
See that we will laugh.
All right. Well, wait a minute. Let's explore that concept for just a moment.
Evil. Evil, you see, one of the things we learn in acting is not to judge our characters, have to always understand what a person is thinking and why the person's thinking.
In my freshman year, one of my instructors said to me I was having a fit about something someone had done and he let me carry on and carry on. And then when I calmed down, he said, Miss Allen, there's something I want you to remember. Even when somebody is being and I'll say this and so be, they think they're right. Now, think about the times you've seen somebody act a complete idiot and they think they're right.
Yeah, I call that I got a curse. I call it momentum. Yeah. But they think they're right.
Yeah. Yeah. And it just keeps building and building and building and building.
So as an actor that's my job is to get inside what the thought is, you know. So I'm not I'm not trying to depart from anything. There are all kinds. And it's interesting because they're all mothers aren't they.
Decide to do what they're right. Right. And Sarah in a fall from grace was what a mother?
I mean, you know, there's all kinds of women in this world and all kinds of mothers to you about the play, the villain in the next Black Panther. Right.
Well, look, do you ever feel like certain roles are beneath you?
I wouldn't say beneath me. I would just say they don't resonate with me. I don't like to be critical of other people's work because that's the easiest thing to be. I just try to find what resonates with me. So what resonates with me?
A good story that's told well resonates with me, a window of opportunity to explore creativity in a new way that really resonates with me.
You know, black box poses the question, do we run our minds?
Do our minds run us in that true?
What do you think the answer to that question is? Well, I. Well, what do you think?
Do we run our minds or do our minds run us? I think. Our minds run us, but I agree we have the ability to get ourselves back on the proper course because I think we live in this world with so much noise that if you pay too much attention to the noise, people can start telling you how you're supposed to be. But that's not necessarily you. So you can silence that noise and really tap into your mind and figure out the path you're supposed to be on, not the path people want you to be on.
That's why I you know, you ask me what I had learned about my mind, and that's what I said. It was important to find the silence within my mind. I agree with you. I think that most often times we people are run by our minds and the mind often runs amuck. And here we are. Yeah.
Yeah, absolutely. And by the way, it's fine to write because healin looks different for healing is healing is strange like that. Like one moment you're fine, next minute you bugging out. And I think that's OK. It's all a process.
It is. But but if we want to keep just going through that like that.
No, no, no I don't think so. I don't think so. And you've just brought up something that's really very interesting. You said one minute you find in the next minute you're bugging out. That's that brings to my mind imagery of a pendulum. Yeah.
You want to bring that thing to center right. Because it will swing as far to the left as it does to the right and right center. Mm hmm.
Yeah, I we have more with Phylicia Rashad when we come back. Don't Move is the Breakfast Club. Good morning.
Morning, everybody, is D.J. N.V., Angela Charlamagne, the guy we are the Breakfast Club, is still kicking in with Phylicia Rashad.
Now, you mentored Chadwick Boseman when he was in Howard. How did the loss of him impact you? And for people that don't know him personally? Tell us something that we might not know about him. He's came. He's been up here a couple of times and he's donated money to the causes that we were fighting for at the time.
He's from South Carolina. Like me. He's always been a good brother. So tell us how that impact was.
Well, you want to know something about him that you might not know? Yeah. Chadwick was given to study. He loved to study. He studied through the lens of theater. First as a writer. He studied the meanings of words. I mean, he studied and you can see this kind of thoughtfulness in his work. It's so subtle. You don't notice it at first. But you go back and you look at it again. He was a consummate artist and without question, one of the kindest and bravest people I've ever known.
I definitely know. I want to ask you about the Drake video.
And when Drake called you to be in that video, did you even know who you are?
Because I knew when you think I live under a rock.
No, I knew what I hadn't been able to give answer to the to the inquiry when I talked to my daughter, she said, do you have to do it? I said, OK, OK, OK. I had so much fun.
That can't be the first time you've been asked to be in a rap video, right? Yes, it was right. Yeah. Wow, that's insane. Wow.
As popular as you've been for all these years, you know, things come when they should and don't. When shouldn't they go home?
How do you how do you think black Hollywood has evolved over the years since then?
Since you first came it there was always there were black people in positions that we weren't always conscious of, but not maybe so many.
Now you see black people on many different levels, in many different areas, in many different positions. It's one thing for what you see on the screen, but you wouldn't see what's on that screen if it weren't for the work of the people who are not on that screen. And they are fundamental and essential to what it is we see. So we need a total equity in this nation of ours that includes all people. Mm hmm.
In my career, I have worked with only one Native American actor. That makes sense to me. I have worked with only one Asian-American actor. That doesn't make sense to me. There's more for us to do in the field of inclusion is more for us to embrace. And I look forward to us doing that because I think that as a people, we are more than ready for it.
Now, I look back on all of those shows that I grew up on in the nineties and man, it just seemed like they were so brilliantly black and I learned so much from them, whether it was Cosby, different world living single. I mean, even Martin, like all of those shows like that, I'm like, what did those sets look like? Because there was they were so black that you would think that everybody on the set with black, all the writers, the director, the people behind the camera.
Well, they're not like that.
No, no, it was not. Wow. Not there were black people behind the camera. There were black people in the writers room. But everybody was not black. No, but everybody was on board to deliver an excellent program. And that's what matters cause all black people don't think alike. That's right.
And they were interns who were being hired every year. And a number of them were black and some of them were not. Our stage managers were black and they were young people. And Mr. Cosby wanted that. So we had that and they were good. It was sharp young people to keep it fresh, keep it new. Yeah.
I mean, you know, there was a way of including people of different ethnicities. You see it reflected in the in Rudy's friends. You see a little friends, you see. How did you see that? OK, there was a way of including people of ethnicities and generations that was just a marvel to be a part of. And he was not going to have grandparents insulted and made fun of the way some shows do make fun of being older. He said no.
He said no, we're not doing that. Our our young people show respect and it's not a forced thing. It's inherent. Right. And he insisted on that. He insisted on a lot of great things even when enjoyed.
Hip hop, and they brought in Eric Alexander and it wasn't like she was just some ghetto ratchet young lady, you know, she was just a person whose circumstances didn't deal the best God and she wanted a better life.
Yeah, and he understood that. He understood that by virtue of the way he grew, you still speak to the other cast members because watching it seems like you guys would be on the phone with each other all day long. You don't think it's a job? Do you still speak to those other cast members at all?
Every now and then, I will hear from Malcolm and Keisha, and they have beautiful children and they love them. And I told Malcolm he's a finished item. He has a daughter and he just he can't keep giving up love.
He's just he's finished. He's finished. And you're done, brother. You're done.
It upsets you that they don't people don't want to air the episodes of The Cosby Show.
Oh, no, it doesn't upset me. But people still watch people find ways to watch. You know, I won't be upset by things because things change, right. I won't be upset and I won't be upset by I things people do because people change. We see that it's something to see and to understand. Years ago, someone who loves me very much told me, she said to me, an image can be broken. Try to find out who you really are.
That's that's tough to do in this business. It's not it's not it's not tough to do. But it can be a process just because everybody's always trying to tell us what our image should be. And when you open up a magazine or you read a blog and people have a perception of you like, oh, that's what they like, let me give them more of that. So you become a caricature of yourself and things become performative without you even knowing it.
That's a very interesting observation. It's what happens in interviews that isn't happening in this one. And I'm loving it.
You know, when people interview you, they come sometimes they come with their answers already in their heads to the questions they've decided to ask you. Right. So why what are we doing here? Why? OK, what what is this?
OK, I have a conversation with me if you already think you know.
Yeah. You didn't know. OK, so then let me know one thing. If nothing else, you will lead this conversation thinking of the person that I'm speaking to. That person will leave the conversation knowing only what they thought they knew right before the conversation began. We enjoy you, Quinn.
We and we could sit here and talk to you forever. And we appreciate you for checking. And we're so grateful and thankful. Thank you so much. Thank you.
Thank you both. And please, when you are in New York, please stop by the studio. Absolutely. OK, I will. Yeah.
We have the rose petals on the ground for you to walk on who have all that for you. Tea, coffee, whatever it is you need.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you so much. Thank you so much.
Phylicia Rashad is the Breakfast Club. Good morning. Thank you.
Are you a music fan? Do you need more music talk in your life? Then you should be listening to Record Store Society Music Talk Show Podcast on the I Heart Radio Network.
Record Store Society is a virtual trip to your local record store hosted by me, Terry Davis and me, Sir Nicholas Johnson.
Every Friday you'll find Stephanie behind the counter at your favorite record store, dispensing recommendations, making lists and talking to our customers about anything and everything music related. And you never know who's going to stop by our record stores frequented by musicians, producers, writers, actors, and especially lots of unfamous. Nobody's like you and I. Tarrah. That's right. As long as they are excited to talk about music, they'll probably make an appearance in our record store sooner or later and we can't wait to talk to them.
I want to find out what their top five debut albums are. I want to find out who their top five Beatles are doing exactly. So listen to Record Store Society on the radio app Apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts. Or I'm affecting all of you, I want this man to comply with man Purshottam, the top has got to make a judgment of who was going to be on the dock of the day.
They chose you for the Breakfast Club, whose donkey the day to day donkey today goes to a young 18 year old rapper named Why be an almighty DJ?
Now, why be an almighty DJ is an anti social distance. And you know what I say about antisocial distances? They're the same type of folks who wouldn't have gotten on the ark when no one told them it was about the rain. And we've seen so many stories of antisocial distances getting sick. And in some cases, like Bishop Gerald Glenn, who said God is lodging in Corona, well, he died.
So we tell you that you need to practice anti-social distancing. We are telling you not just for your own good, but for the good of others, because we all got things to do. We all need to get back outside so we can get back to the real hustle of life. And we can't do that unless we social justice and flatten this curve. You see, social distancing is working all around the country, so we need to continue to do more of it so we can get back outside.
Now, why be an almighty Jase upset with us because of this rumor report? Let's hear it.
Evan Almighty, he was talking to TMZ and he said that he's just not taking coronavirus seriously. Here's what he said.
I'm a Graham clearly going to be. Oh, no, I really don't know why, but I still have to like girls and stuff like that. So even though you're supposed to be social distancing, of course we don't. So are you checking their temperature or anything when they come in?
Like, are you taking any precautions while you're a young man who also has also had unprotected sex with randoms? I'm sure. So if you have unprotected sex with random, you damn sure? I'm afraid we don't even know coronavirus. Right. So even though he's staying in the house, you can't just be meeting women and inviting them over during this time. You could be infecting them with coronavirus once they in fact you and you're spreading it around. It's really time to maybe just be celibate for a second.
But what if the young man who I'm sure to take chances with his penis and has a lot of unprotected sex with randoms, so he responded to that by posting that on his Instagram and he put this caption, Some things in this world I would never understand. I get judged so much by lame ass mother efforts that don't know me in real life and mother that just try to hate on young Negroes. This right here, crazy swipe left to see a different response to the same statement at Breakfast Club.
I am old, miserable bitches, right?
First of all, why be an almighty DJ compared to you?
You're eighteen. I'm forty one. I'm old. I get it. I may even be a bitch depending on the circumstances and I'm fine with that. But miserable never. My life is amazing. My self-worth is more than my net worth, but my network net worth isn't bad. Let's say you envy.
I'm it's pretty good. I'm all right out here. What's it say.
You. It's decent. Yeah I'm happy. OK. OK.
OK, so nobody's miserable in the room where everybody go. All right. OK, all right.
Now the reason why be an almighty DJ is getting donkey today is because clearly he just wants attention. He's sitting in the house quarantine and he's happy he got mentioned on the Breakfast Club. And listen, if you didn't like what we said, cool, OK? You have every right to respond. Well, let's state the facts. You posted a clip with a breakfast club talking to Buzy, and you edited the clip to make it seem like we had nothing, that we had something like we had something to say about you being an anti social justice, but didn't reply to boos.
You said swipe left to see a different response to the same statement. Can we hear the clip that we're being almighty? GE posted on his Instagram.
Speaking of strangers, I know you've been with this woman because you've got to be quarantined right now. So you should be social. This is it.
So you must live according to social disenthrall. You're not worried about it. We just see the couple of I guess a couple of weeks ago you was not married, possibly hollering at Rihanna.
Now, last time I checked this BOOSIE interview we did on the Breakfast Club, it got like a million views. So clearly, you are one of those people who watch the whole interview or maybe you didn't watch the whole interview. I'm thinking you didn't watch the whole interview. But no, I think you did watch the whole interview, but you decided to edit it to make yourself look good, even though, you know, we push back on Boosey being an anti social distance.
Let's hear it.
Speaking of strangers, how long you been with this woman? Because you got to be quarantined her right now. So you should be social. You must know reason.
You're not causing any worry about social distancing. Quarantine we threw a party at.
Everyone else has let you down. It does it. You know, I really I would say, you know, you don't believe in coronavirus buzi.
I think I hit it all, but I don't, you know, can't go around the back. Kind of little faith people are dying.
Obasi Yeah. But people it's about. I get what you're saying, but, you know, they say faith without works is dead. So if they tell you that you can social distance and wear a mask to prevent from getting it, you can you can work towards not getting it, I guess.
But I ain't trying to let me out as far as like you're doing everybody else. Every day I'm trying to I'm trying to have fun, get money. I turn up.
No woozy coronavirus is killing people. We've got to flatten this curve. All we need is a little social distancing for a couple of weeks.
Hi, Bruce. You've got to stay healthy out there, Netto, and we're going to be all right now.
Y'all got to do and pray about it, man.
But I messed with the Coronado books. I messed with that. I'm scared I'm not allowed up at dances. Yeah. And I worry about you, Buzy, because you got diabetes and Korona is really taking people out who have pre-existing health conditions, man. So you got to be cautious.
But yeah, that's what they say. But I got to live in a time of need to die for me to die.
Come on, Almighty. You heard that as well. You knew that young man, but you wanted to manipulate your followers. You really wanted to show your followers at the Breakfast Club. He's talking about you. So you had to act fake man and edit a boozy interview to create a story. Yeah, you are acting like the media you claim to be mad at. What you did is click bait.
This is Donald Trump, 69 level trolling. You are doing what a lot of people in your generation do, and that's climate change. Look, you got five hundred and fifty comments out of the deal. Congratulations, sir. Matter of fact, let's see if we can double that this morning. Let's have a petty party this morning. Let's go to why be an almighty jazz page page. That's what it is. It's why be in l am I why?
Why why be an almighty DJ? Let's go to his page and leave the donkey emoji and some handclaps in his mentions because he got the attention he's looking for and we can celebrate that with a round of applause. OK, round of applause for your editing skills. A round of applause for the attention you received from doing this, because I don't think we've talked about the young man on here before.
I know why. Because they have been here. Mean is fantastic. I just don't think we've ever talked about Jay. But, Jay, in case you're upset with what I was saying by you still sleeping with randoms during a global pandemic, you probably are used to sleeping with women unprotected. So you're used to taking risks. But the moral of the story is king. Don't take risk with your health, OK? You don't have to yolo your life away.
You wouldn't play a game of Russian roulette, would you? So why play Russian roulette with your health by having random women come over to sleep with them? I wouldn't say it's your life, but in a case like this, it's not just your life because you are putting other people at risk too, because you get sick, don't show symptoms, run around wherever you live and possibly infect other people. And you, sir, are a rapper.
Concerts are canceled until fall. Twenty, twenty one. That means no show money. You know why? Because people like you don't want to follow the rules and social distance. OK, we've got to flatten the curve. So not only are you going to be possibly sick, you might be potentially broke. That money going to get low. OK, so excuse me for looking out for you all my T.J., OK, by telling you that you need the social distance.
But once again, antisocial distances are the same type of people who wouldn't have gotten on the ark when Noah told them to.
So, look, we can tell you all day the social distance.
What if you don't want to let them drown? Please give the young man Almighty Jay to see.
Right. And make sure make sure you go to y be an almighty Jay's Instagram page y b and a l am i g h t y j.y.. Let's have a little pity party.
Give them a round of applause and also put the donkey emoji in his comments and maybe tell the young man why he should be social justice. And he he's eighteen. He just needs to learn. So God bless them. And you know how I know he probably was having unprotected sex and taking it. That's what I was doing at eighteen. All right. Now I know. Well, thank you for that donkey of the donkey of the day or night.
Everybody, please just be safe, OK? That's good to know what's going to happen. We've seen a lot of people who did not think they could potentially catch it, didn't take this guy. We end up getting sick or stuff like this. Please take us seriously. That's all we're saying to anybody. That's all right.
Thank you for that. Don't you think it's anybody because you said it about one of your some of your Cowboys players, including Dak Prescott. So that's right.
I did give you the dunk anyway for Dak. I can see, you know. All right. Well, thank you for that donkey today, you old miserable bitch.
You I'm not miserable. It's all about. Oh, bitch, I may be I may be an old bitch, but I'm not miserable. All right.
We got more coming up next with a breakfast club, The Breakfast Club.
Come on, relationship advice, any personal advice, just the really folks call up now for Enschede warning. Everybody is D.J. Envy, Angela.
Yes, I mean, the guy we are the Breakfast Club. It's time for ASKI. Hello, who's this? I don't want to stay anonymous.
All right. Anonymous. What's your question for you? OK, so me and my husband have been married almost two years now. Before I started dating him, I was dating a lot of women. So I'm not really, like, experienced with, like, the oral stuff for men. So I tried it. He didn't like it. So we haven't had sex in a while. But I feel confident in my ability to perform where he can be pleased.
But he won't take me seriously because he's been so long since he's had it.
OK, so you know what you're doing now, you feel confident? Well, I don't I wouldn't know. And I don't even know if I feel confident, but I don't know if it's going to be right until, you know, I actually try.
But he won't let me because he doesn't want to be a guinea pig and end up with some abrasions on his penis.
Yeah. So I'm trying to figure out how to set it up to where he can be comfortable enough to allow me to see, OK, what progression I've made and then go from there.
OK, so leg this is what I think right before you guys get to it. When you're doing your foreplay you should ask him, can I just kiss it? I'm not going to do anything more than that. And then you should kiss it and then you should tongue kiss it and then you should just do a little bit more, a little bit more. And so, you know, he's feeling good about it. And then, you know, that's when you go a little bit more.
But just make sure that you keep your mouth very lubricated. Don't use your teeth, tuck them away.
OK, but I think you just might just I think you're starting to feel less confident.
Oh, my envy bike ride. What?
We're definitely not talking about that, but I just listen and just started off. So just say, like, I'm just going to kiss it. I'm not going to do anything else. And then when you kiss it right. Kiss it could be anything, it could be closed mouth open mouth and then, you know, just play around with that area and then if he likes it, he'll be OK.
With you going a little further, how will I know if he likes it though? Ask him.
Because I met a man, he may he may just accept it just because the love of me as his wife. But he may not want to actually tell me that he's enjoying what's happening. So I'm trying to like what size I should look for when.
Well, first of all, there's nothing better than asking the direct question. And you can ask it like, OK, do you like that? Well, tell me what you want me to do it. I'm going to do it and be like, how would you like it better? Well, you know, just ask those questions, but you could do it in a sexy way so that he's going to direct you to the way to do it and just be like, tell me what to do.
OK, I will try that and I'll let you know how it goes. Thank you. I cannot wait to hear about it. All right, you guys have a good morning. You too.
And that was another addition service. She had a real great thing. All right. You really did sound like you was talking about Janvi riding his bike. I'm not going.
Oh, she got. Why? Why? Because that's what he is realizing. I had to keep talking about. I'm a married man.
You got these fantasies about me and I don't like it. I'm starting to feel uncomfortable. You're a liar. What's wrong with you?
Come on, keep it real. Well is some real advice with Angela. It's aski. Morning, everybody.
Is D.J. Envy, Angela Charlamagne the God. We are the Breakfast Club in the middle of. Ask you what you want to go to you. Yes, my boy. Hello. Who's this? Hey, this is Paul so-called from Charleston, South Carolina. Hey. For three weeks of course before you.
OK, so I have a question. Basically, I've been dealing with some sexual harassment at my job with my supervisor. So I took the appropriate steps with H.R., even talk to a lawyer about the situation. But I feel like they're not trying to let this manager go. What's the next step? Which should I do from this point on? Should I just find another job? Should I keep pushing the issue because I feel like he's retaliating. You feel like he's you feel like he's retaliating.
You said yes. Like give me some examples. Basically why he tried to put me on third shift without telling me which was one thing, another thing. He he picked that little thing that he claim I'm doing wrong because I'm a industrial technician. So I work the maintenance department being that I'm one of the girls with a bunch of guys, he just kind of takes me for a little things that I feel like it's like not even serious over because he never did before until I went to H.R. about it.
OK, so. Here's a couple of things. First of all, you said that you've complained, right? Yes, I went to Iraq twice.
And so their response is what we're going to work on and we're going to work on how we're going to try to figure out how we're going to make you comfortable by being here, because we know you're not. But that's pretty much it. And they are dragging their feet about letting them go or, you know, what are they going to do with the supervisor? I had proof that he did that right message and everything. So you have all of this in writing and you've emailed them and they responded via email.
I highly recommend you get yourself a lawyer. That's when they take things seriously, OK? And you should not ever have to work under those circumstances. You should feel safe and protected at work. If you go to H.R. with a complaint and evidence that somebody is doing this to you and making you feel this way at work and you're uncomfortable and you're feeling belittled, then you need to make sure that you take those matters into your own hand because you have the power to do that.
OK, well, I'll probably just go back to the attorney I was talking to. She told me that the only way she can take my case is if the job was to fire me or there was no change moving forward. So because there are no changes, I'm just going to go back to her and. Yeah, absolutely. And and it sounds like you have a legitimate case. You have these text messages. Plus, I think you have to keep a record of what's been happening at work since you've been complaining to H.R. and all the things that he's been in, every detail that you can get and anything that you can get in writing as evidence, you should try to get OK and make sure you send those emails, make sure you show what their responses are present all of those to a lawyer.
You definitely have a case. And I think this is great because you don't want this to happen to somebody else. So it's great that you spoke up. You've done what you're supposed to do on your part. They haven't done what they're supposed to do on their behalf. So now it's time to move it to the next level. A look at you.
And I know you ain't got none of your cousins that can come back to them anymore, OK? I mean, I do not want to lock them up now. But listen, it is like I don't know, this is a white man, so I don't want my people to get locked up for that.
Then I have a white man. I mean, I got no business trying to feel on your I work now.
Yeah. I thought what you want to touch my tattoo and all kind of stuff within.
You want to touch the tattoo.
You damn right you are not getting. None of your family's locked up over this.
Well I need your cousin of the computer age of course. Hey relax. They ought to get you phone conversation. Go give me a hey. I want to show you how to get your conversation and stay out of that area. Sexual harassment.
We're no joke. I'm talking to her in our native language. Just get to Charleston, girl 843, OK? Yeah, well, you look very mature, girl. I know it has to be tough for you to go to work every day under those circumstances and not feel like anybody cares. I'm so uncomfortable every day and it's like I left work today just to get away. Took a sick day just to not be there with them. Yeah, that's a terrible feeling.
So you have to nip this in the bud and let them know you ain't gonna keep this going. I had the power over you and I'm gonna make you all little crazy. Exactly.
And thank you for the man I love. You know, I love you, Mom. I'm serious, dawg. You got to because I need you. Shut up, boy. Puts you in a moment. Thank you so much. I was thinking about it.
It looks like some of them mostly sneak them sneak asking you or five one if you need relationship advice. Yeah. Help you out and keep a is the Breakfast Club. Good morning. The Breakfast Club.
It's that time again as Charlemagne and Andy, anything, pick it up, pick it up, pick it up. It's time to act any. Morning, everybody, is T.J. envy, Angela. Yes, I mean, the guy we are, the Breakfast Club now it's time for AC in E! Angelie is Outsole. Charlamagne and I will be holding it down. So let's go to the callers. Hello.

Like I been married for like 17 into your life. I'm disabled military. I got 100 percent disability. I originally called to say something about my wife. But anyway, look, I need your help. I need your help like a year because of my disability.
And I almost I got sick. And the reason why I'm calling, because we always speak to her life is I'm Dominican. I'm Dominican. Right. So we don't believe in that. So just like black people, you know, I mean, I consider myself like that. I consider myself black. That's not what I'm saying. Well, we can say, okay, that's cool. I want you to take my number because I'm amazed. You know, I'm saying because I'm getting help.
I know what I'm saying and I'm getting better. But what I'm saying is I started calling his radio station before because I feel like, you know how. So I'm sorry. Go tell you do something. And you you listen to it or you don't know I'm saying so. I was calling you back then when I was in my darkest place because I feel that you have to ask them to hold me up.
Well, I'll tell you what, I don't have all the answers. You know what I'm saying? I'm still going on my journey, just like you going on your journey. But I do have a lot of resources and a lot of people that you can talk to, people that, you know, have have helped me get through. And I have no problem sharing those resources with you, my my Dominican brother. OK, well, hold on.
Hold on one second. No, we're not giving up.
We're going to get your information. But I got a real question for the brother, though.
OK, go ahead. Ask me the question. You're Dominican, right? Yes, sir.
How many pair of white jeans do you own or have you owned? I know it throughout your life. Seriously?
Oh, no, no, seriously. I probably like once or twice because there was a white party and I needed. OK, everything right. OK, ok.
So all the many kids don't have white jeans. So let me hold on. I mean I didn't go to that man about his white man about to get you. I'm gonna get you. No leave your number with the producer. I'll meet you. I met you when the show went like our goodness gracious.
Hello. This is mad man. I would see any ill man. I got I got some crazy man lo relate to a problem I got going on right now. My girl for a year she got it. And she's pregnant now with the fourth one by me. It's my first one but I it ain't easy. She got three from another man who I was the I got three a baby daddy.
Oh well she has four now for baby daddy. OK, ok.
Yeah. And then rough me man. Like I go through hell I do everything I do best. I've been a boy for her to see that I'm pregnant and she called me selfish just because like I got pain or something like that. But getting up in the middle of the night, doing something for her like I'm doing is all set up. But, you know, I respect you, bro. It's kind of hard to respect the fourth baby daddy.
You know, I'm saying I'm scared for my life, though. I feel like it's more hands on you.
Yes, yes, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Oh, yeah. It's easy for me to bro.
Oh, I know it's a one time incident, but that's what she used to know, that you're her past and I'm toxic woman. I'm not that guy. You know, I'm not your baby daddy. I'm not like that. Come home, get drunk and put my hands on your stuff like that. You know, I communicate, you know, just out to me, whatever the problem is with how to solve and instead of arguing back and forth.
But I guess I got her and nasty. And next I want to be I'm OK. And that's not what I want to buy my first child. I want to be our family, not just mine.
I feel bad for your brother. You know, I was somebody that's toxic. Oh, man. Are you taking care of yourself?
I'm sorry to want have my first child. And anyhow, I want to be. Are you to take the other kids to really drive me crazy?
Boy, if you don't listen to me, are you taking care of the three kids barely better or you taking care of them. So you are.
No, I'm saying like I do what he asked me to do for them or whatnot. Listen, if the roles were reversed and you was dating a toxic man with four different baby mamas who put hands on you, what would your girls be telling you to do, leave people telling me to leave?
But I just didn't listen.
I don't know why I really listen to your goddamn girlfriends. Your girlfriend is telling you right now. You said you fear for your life, you put hands on you, she makes you do everything you sound like you do everything and you're about to lose it. So you better leave alone before she hit you in a frying pan.
So greet your girlfriends. I'm Tony Checkout's envious. John Clayton. We telling you to leave my OK, actually, you would be late in a situation like this. Some would get outside. All right. You got she got three kids already from three different baby daddies. Got one on the way from you. Be a father to your child. But this sounds like a very toxic human that you'd be on the way. And she needs to get some healing.
And when she gets some healing and becomes the woman that you need her to be, then you can be with her.
I told her I thought I might get married before the baby get here. I thought, you want to do that. We don't have to go to counseling. I don't need it really. The stress is really putting a toll on my career.
You know what toxic people do? They never let things go. They can't move forward a bully. They intimidate, they lie, they create drama. They play the victim and they act out of fear and insecurity. That's all that person is doing to you right now. You got to go, bro. Be a father to your child. That's a very toxic woman. She sounds like the future of females. Repeat after me. I am strong.
I will not let her hit me anymore.
I will not let her hit me anymore. What? Not anymore. That's right.
I am strong. I am a good man and I am a good father.
I am strong. I am a good man and I will be a good father. There you go.
When you got that written down, that envy and why you just that's your daily affirmation. I'm trying to give him the self-esteem to make him feel good this morning. Man. Brother, you go out there, you have a great day and you take care of business.
I eliminate all toxic people from your life, man. Why we always give people more chances than they deserve.
Why do we do that, man? Low self-esteem. All right. We got more coming up next with a breakfast club.
This is your call and your opinions to the Breakfast Club top, come on, eight hundred five eight five one five one morning everybody is D.J. M.V. Angela Ye shall I mean the guy we are the Breakfast Club.
Good morning. Good morning. What's happening? Happy holidays. What are we talking about today? And if you're just joining us, we're talking about Mel B now. She does something I think is pretty odd you to explain what she does. She is. She actually got a tattoo removed of her ex. You know, she's getting divorced. And she got instead of laser removal for that tattoo, she got a cut out of her body and she keeps the skin in a jar.
That is called root. That is voodoo. Black magic. All right. You cut the name off your skin, put it in the jar, have a little witchdoctor, something, put a little whammy on it. Don't nobody touch that job, because if you do, the spell will be broken. And as long as that name is in that John Stephen Belafonte will have erectile dysfunction for the rest of his life, at the least, call for a frog to everything from pass goes in the garbage, nothing from the past.
No letters, no pictures, nothing. Everything thrown away. Uh, yeah. Actually have a lot of things from exes. I actually have all my letters and cards and notes that I used to pass in class and all of that and a huge bad.
Well, I mean, listen, I only a woman four 24 years married. Seventeen I'm know my woman. Twenty years married for OK, I'm forty. It's no excuse. Right. I don't even remember what an ex is an ex. Oh I have is really from high school because nobody really wrote letters after that. What I'm saying.
So if you're woman is still saving letters from high school, that letter really means a lot to her and that person.
But I have a lot to her. But I heard that wrote that letter, you know, could never be duplicated.
You know, I'm saying like, I also grew up as a as a writer, like when I was young, you know, you know, and I write a lot. And so I keep all of those things even from, like, my friends who are women.
Yeah, but you I married you imagine being married for 17 years. All right. And you been with this guy that you married to since you was kids, but you keep a letter from the exes. I mean, you keep in letter from when you was like seventeen, eighteen. Like those first feelings of love.
No, not those first feelings of love has not been duplicated at all. And so like. No, what are you talk no man has ever made you feel the way that that first person I always feel.
So I don't I don't know. Just we did not say whether we talked about Magic Fingers earlier. No, no, no magic fingers. But I brought those letters up. And what are you talking about? You just joined us to talk about nothing. What are you talking about? I told my nothing. You sound insecure. Natasha.
Hi. Good morning, Natasha. Good morning. You keep anything from your ex?
I definitely do not. The only thing I can relax is our son.
Oh, I'm glad you get back to you. I wouldn't let that go so deep that I had to get rid of the cell phone that I used to check cell phone because I would search and I typed in Bay and then he probably deleted it too, like, oh, I picked up. I was like, I've got to get rid of it. All right? I tell you, I manage.
You take your mama, Niger. What was that, mama? Did she call you lady? I know she called me.
She said baby. Oh, well, now do you throw everything away from your past relationships, everything away? Like, I'm not keeping that what was memory of it or my I or anything away. Like I want to live here. My wife and son is together. Like you will come over and still say, oh, you got my share. You just trying to find a way to come back and I'll be right to take away. Oh, you ain't got to come back from that, you know.
Now what if she gave you a Rolex? Oh, that's different. Not that's my. Oh, OK.
Now it is all about the cost of the gift. You ain't give it back. No Bentley. Yeah. Give it back. No type of car and you ain't going back. No jewelry. Oh no money.
No matter how you are going to be picky and choosy about what to keep and what you give away.
Well something that gives you you ain't got no choice but to keep like herpes khudairi money out there for everybody out there who gave them herpes. And you got no choice but to live with that and keep that for the rest of their life. Hello.
This is where I can do all. Rakeem, do you keep anything from your ex? Loubriel No need to. I've been married four years. My girl is seven and there's no need to borrow. You got a hold of the pennsbury. You might as well try to get back in that direction. Yeah, yes.
I feel I don't understand why, you know, somebody would hold on to something from the past, especially if they've been together for so long.
I imagine me with somebody who is 17 years old and twelve years old, that they would tell somebody why, why, why? Why didn't so close telling you? I'm just telling you, you can point a finger pointing, a finger pointing magic finger at me. I'm just somebody was writing letters to my wife when they were ten years old. She kept it as memories is, oh, that's so cute. And I birthed them. I don't like it when I visit a pastor.
You should have been married for forty years. How long you been married, seriously? Seventeen years. I've been together. Twenty four. Twenty four. You know, reinvaded bookkeeping stuff. That's what I said. And that's why I burned them letters up.
It's so crazy because I do have it. Like I said, I have a huge box filled with like. That is when my friends, when they went away out of town from is like everything together in a box, I haven't even separated it, but a recent X she used to steal this is off like high school and college, but no Rolex in high school.
No, I'm talking about a box of letters.
Oh, but my whole thing is what I'm saying is that it doesn't really I never thought of it like it's something that would be offensive to anybody. I used to be a nobody right now.
I even found a watch that somebody gave my my wife when I think they were like 12, 13.
I definitely ran over that watch with, my gosh, you still got all these little trinkets, all those little twelve days of Christmas. Were you buying her all this stuff? And you think you've been watching from middle school in ten years old. So maybe just little cutie cutie. I think that's cute, but they're all going now. It was going to grow up. We are going now and now. Watch. I ran over ten times. Memories are so cute.
Rebecca. Hey, good morning, Rebecca. OK, yeah. So I have like an Xbox I like not like the video game. Yeah. I was like, OK, me too. Yeah. So I dated this guy from like eighth grade to senior year of high school and I kept literally everything. But the weird thing that I kept was he gave me a lemon. Lemon lemon is great. Yeah, sure. The guy he gave me a lemon and I still have it in the box.
No, like rotten or anything.
It's a god damn damn it.
I know it doesn't smell or anything. It's like hollow and hard and I don't like him in his heart.
Why are you keeping it. That's disgusting. I hope it was like the reason why we started talking in the first place.
We bonded over Lemon.
You convinced me that it was like this really rare, like lemon from like Cuba or something like that. I like I don't even know.
Sounds like a red flag to me. He lied to you immediately. That came from that moment where all you fell in love with a man.
I gave you a lemon. Wait until somebody gives you an apple or a watermelon. You won't really be head over here.
You need to make lemonade out of that. No, I'm not going to do that. Don't curse. All right. What is moral of the story? The moral of the story is, man, let's say a prayer and salute everybody out there who is keeping things from their excuse that they can't give back like herpes.
Keep it locked. It's the Breakfast Club. Come on back. You're checking out the world's most dangerous morning show. Morning, everybody.
