Three words to describe “Release the Kraken”; raw, rachet, and dirty. This risqué production took the audience on a roller coaster of laughs, relation, and oh-no-they-didn’t. With 22 year young writer, Chris Patterson, and the amazing improve group there was no “rachet” subject that went untouched. The diversity of the cast made it so no one group could run and hide behind “oh they were racists” or “they discriminated”. They even included the audience in several improvisations such as “The Twerk”, and of course I was called up. (Lol)
After the production wrapped they held a Q&A for the cast and audience. I opened the floor with “I am an actress myself so I understand the masking, however, what was it like preparing yourself to perform such vulgar and offensive material?” Each stated their personal experience, agreeing that it wasn’t easy but director Phil Williams made the space a no-judgement zone which helped them become a family. I followed with a question toward the writer, Chris, “you are so young and your material is creativity wild, where did you go and what went through your mind when writing the skits?” He replied that even though many of his writings reflected urban entertainment such as rap artists and reality tv, he wasn’t into any of that. He merely researched and even had help from a reality guru to assure the writing was “on the money”. He explained that his intent was to never offend anyone, however in order to address issues you must attack them head on. He further explained that our generation was so lost in the rush of social media, glam, and rudeness that many don’t know that this is how they really appear…

Naté- I am sitting here with Ms.-Hard-Work herself, Nichole Bess. How are you?
Nichole Bess– I’m good.
Naté- Exhausted I’m sure. This is city number…?
Nichole Bess– This is my first.
Naté- This is your first stop?
Nichole Bess- This is my first stop.
Naté- Ok, so congratulations on an successful event. I heard a little on what inspired you, but can you tell our readers your initial inspiration?
Nichole Bess– My initial inspiration of OWNit is my great grandmother, my grandmother, and my mother are all passed away and they all passed away with a secret, an untold truth. So one day as I sat back and thought about it and I was like “they could have never lived. What type of life is that? To have died and then something come out about what you never told.” So my mission is to make sure that women don’t die an un-lived life.
Naté- That is beautiful. I feel like women especially hold a lot in so sometimes how we’re feeling gets pushed to the back burner. So I applaud you. It’s so inspiring to see a woman finding her purpose. With organizing the tour, how did you go about picking each city? Was it a focus on region?
Nichole Bess– I actually googled which cities had the highest number of female entrepreneurs and made the schedule based on that.
Naté- Smart business move! You have a large following. What would you tell to someone who sees you as inspiration?
Nichole Bess– The one thing I would say is just DO IT. Just go for it. No matter what it looks like when you get there, just get there and walk in that. No one knows your purpose besides you, right? And it’s your obligation to God to get that done because He put you here for that reason.
Naté- Thank you so much for sitting with me and sharing. You are an inspiration to so many women. Continue being a business bombshell, a great mother, friend, and girl boss and congratulations on your engagement
Nichole Bess– Thank you!

Who run the world? Sporty Girls!!
Their mission is to cultivate, enrich and challenge young women to participate in non-traditional sports, while fostering and developing lifestyles skills. With all donated items going to Love Beyond Walls, Sporty Girls Inc. set out to collect new and used clothes for homeless middle and high school girls.
Garb Shoetique provided a venue where these precious little girls and beautiful young women all donning a bit of pink, joined together to give big with their Big Give. The event offered an entertaining quality while focusing on the issue of giving to those less fortunate than ourselves. Terrance and Cecilia Lester with Love Beyond Walls accepted boxes of donated clothing that surely will make a difference for many well deserving teen girls who could have, but will not go without thanks to the efforts of those who realize that sometimes all you need is a helping hand…and a nice pair of sneakers.
These girls, participants in sports ranging from golf to swimming to tennis, fiercely stomped down the pink carpet to make a statement in their athletic wear that every girl can be sporty!

I had the pleasure of attending Heel My Heart’s Heels 4A Cause Strike Out Domestic Violence Bowling Event with special guest from VH1’s Atlanta Exes, Domestic Violence Ambassador Christina Johnson. This event was a great time for a great cause, starting the evening with the serious issue of domestic violence survival but ending the night with food, laughs and of course bragging rights to the winner of the bowling competition.
Mostly all teams boasted of how they would be the winners by the end of the event, however competition was not the real goal. Nikki Chaney about a dozen teams together to create a bigger awareness and assist in her own way in helping to end domestic violence. Although the night was a night of competition, everyone came out a winner.
