Bougie Babes! We couldn’t end season 3 without a BANG! Baybee we brought back one of our faves to completely close us out & this is one for the books!

Between the low self esteem and jealousy, this episode was full of tremendous fire works! Johnise said she likes her man on the slim side so she never had these issues however Erica could relate because she has had slim to thick!

Episode 72: Gatekeepers of HBCU Culture (Part 2)

Episode 71: Gatekeepers of HBCU Culture (Part 1)
What's up Bougie Babes!!!! Its October so that means its HOMECOMING SEASON! In honor of this most poppin' occasion, we decided to focus on a college-based discussion that is making waves on the internet. A few weeks ago, several news outlets were featuring a story regarding an African American USC student who decided to start her own all-black majorette dance team at USC. She received high acclaim, and was even featured on Jennifer Hudson's talk show for creating a unique space that didn't exist prior at her predominantly white institution; however, reactions from Black Twitter tended to question why the USC student didn't choose to attend an HBCU if she was seeking a majorette dance experience. When our special guest, Kevin Taylor, entered the chat and posted about how attending a PWI doesn't lessen or devalue the black-ness of an individual, we knew we had to talk about it and speak on it. He's a good friend who has experience in both HBCU and PWI settings. Between reminiscing on our own memories from NC A&T, and breaking down what lead to Kevin's transition to UNC Charlotte, the conversation is just pure recreation. Grab your snacks, drinks, edges, and yearbook. We're getting you ready for homecoming!

Episode 70: We Need Our Ass Beat!
What's up Bougie Babes?!?!?! This week, we got a lil' silly in the Bougie Den and decided to explore scenarios that we thought warranted a good ol' ass whoopin! Peep it! We out here touching on a plethora of topics from childhood and parenting, to social squabbles and being tried in adulthood. Do you believe in corporal punishment in this new age? What are some of your experiences that you feel warranted a sizeable ass beatin'? Has there ever been a time where someone received a beat down that was not well deserved? Depending on the cohost or the scenario, our takes tend to vary, and lets just say that since this was a late recording (and some of us were either drinking or exhausted), we veered off course into the rant territory quite a few times; but its all laughs! Grab your cocktails, your edges, and your weapon of choice (belt or switch) as you listen to us just cut up!

Episode 69: Respect The Resignation!
Bougie Babes!!!! We dive in on a prevalent pressing topic this week that was introduced via social media. Our very own Erica Patrice was captivated by a recent post from a friend announcing that they were leaving their job after 21 YEARS of service; and lets just say, the post was rather spicy! In all honesty, it was quite intriguing. You KNOW we had to get to the nitty gritty on what sparked this big change, and this week's guest, good friend of the show Darlene, let us know some thangs about what lead to that life-changing moment! Tons of nuggets and gems in this one here! Have you heard of the new "resignation revolution" that has been on the rise? What is causing it? Is it due to stress, reprioritizing what's important in life, or is it instigated through corporate politics and structural changes based on trying to return to a "new normal" following the wake of the pandemic? Is it ever too late to start over or enter into a second act career-wise in your life? Honey!!! We discuss it all in this one! Grab your popcorn, some good ol' liquid courage, and maybe even your pink slips. This episode really helps put everything in perspective. ***

Episode 68: Amen! And Amen Again!
Bougie Babes!!!! We welcome "Reverend Dr. Ashley" to the Bougie Den as we discussed the question, "Has the black church changed post pandemic"? Since the pandemic, has the idea of church changed for you? Would you rather stream from the comfort of your own home versus the assembly of the saints?? Church typically provides a corporate experience; however, is it more about your religious walk or the actual church (brick and mortar)? Did the pandemic allow you to get right with God, but reveal your true feelings about the church? Many of us experience church through obligation or ritual and not see that its about God's love. Most parishioners have not returned and those who have have a different experience or thirst for God - or maybe even some of the pastors are exhausted. Also, we discuss the recent blockbuster movie "Honk for Jesus. Save your Soul!" which offers a lens into the dynamic of the black church as it navigates scandal. Grab your water & turn it to wine - its a celebrate from on high!

Bougie Babes! We had some awesome conversation this week discussing expectations and how they effect our lives, relationships, friendships, work, and families. What do you do when your expectations aren't being met? How do you handle the expectations that others place on you? Should satisfaction be placed in meeting expectations or should we not even have them at all? We give it all up in this discussion. Grab your cocktail, blunt, notepad and a pen because this episode is full of juice, and gems! ~KJ

Bougie Babes!! We welcomed a fan of the show to the Bougie Den who is also out here touring the world with major artists! Kisses to celebrity guitarist Ari O’Neal who came to rock out with us about adulting versus life as a kid. We addressed how we thought life would be as an adult when we were babes but baybeee we had no IDEA. Ari loved being a musician but had no clue she would be traveling the world. The cast addressed foods they used to love versus the A1 quality taste they have now because we are bougie AF!!

Episode 65: Unpopular Opinions
Bougie Babes! Have you ever felt like everyone else was drinking the Koolaid and you just couldn't get with the flavor? Is there a trend amongst your friends that you are starkly against? Any popular foods or restaurants that you can't get jiggy with no matter how much your fam tries to convince you otherwise? In the Bougie Den this week, we explored the notion of the controversial 'unpopular opinion' amongst the categories of music, food, and entertainment. We also went a little off the rails and started revealing our most cringe-worthy pet-peeves. The laughs are abundant, so grab your popcorn, drink, and edges and prepare to cackle whole-heartedly tonight!

Bougie Babes!! Listennn...the Bougie Den was filled with all kinds of emotions on this one. Hunni we addressed how we want to be courted and loved. Do you think $500 is appropriate for a date? That question literally opened up the BOUG in BOUGIE!! Johnise and Brandon address beautiful moments in dating and relationships which warranted love and admiration. Kev isn't one to speak on love however he explains he isn't opposed to spending a little coinT on a deserving someone. Erica relayed her most romantic date and it was epic.

Episode 63: Beyoncé & Her Impact On the Black Community
Bougie babes!! This episode was recorded during our live event which streamed on Facebook, YouTube and Twitch. When you think of Beyonce – what comes to mind? King B or does she bite off of everyone’s music? The Bougie Den comes together to dissect her new album Renaissance or B7 – Does Kelis have a pending lawsuit against Beyonce “sampling” her music or is her issue with the Neptune’s – specifically Pharrell? Why couldn’t Kelis be happy like Big Freedia and Twinkie Clark and consider it an opportunity to collaborate. Then, to make matters worse – Monica Lewinsky took it upon her irrelevant self to even have comments from the song “Partition.” Grab your Henny, cuz we have plenty!

Episode 62: My Friend Betta NOT...
Bougie Babes! Listennnnn.... we turned up & out on this episode. We invited our good friend LoLo Alexis back in the Bougie Den to address the code of friendship which at times can be referred to as the "Bro or Sis Code". Baybee we addressed friends and their privileges or boundaries with respect to your significant others and exes. Have you ever had a friend jump in your boo's DM's or they put kiss emojis under your exes social media posts? Well come on in as we address these crazy scenarios and more! This episode is litty so grab the popcorn, your drank & your edges because this one is for the books hunny! xoxo

Episode 61: Blazin' Them Boundaries
Bougie Babes!!!! We gathered in the Bougie Den this week to tackle the topic of setting and communicating boundaries, and it got quite interesting! While one of us has seemingly no qualms with setting anyone straight, we all broke down the dynamics within different environments and relationships that can make having that convo so necessary, and how changing circumstances can create the need for boundaries. Sometimes being the 'go-to' person or having that "Black Bougie Magic" can make you an easy target to be taken advantage of. How is it possible to set boundaries in your friendships/relationships, in your professional life, or with your family? And how do you react when your boundaries are crossed? How should you deal with friends finessing your boundaries? We also break down the different types of boundaries because trust, there are much more than one. Let me tell you, the discussion was thorough and plentiful this time, so its an extra-long listen! Grab a supa-sized snack, a double cocktail, and hit the focus on your phone so that you won't be disturbed while enjoying this one. Its a doozy!

Episode 58: Levels to Dating & Cheating
Bougie Babes!!! In this episode we unpack what is considered “cheating?” Are there certain non-negotiables that you and your relationship cannot rebound from? Do you have experience dating an unloyal hoe? Is one person not enough for you or do you prefer an open relationship? If there are infidelities in your relationship clearly there must be a willingness to hash out any differences and a commitment to change. However, there are levels to relationships and folks like to speed thru the process of talking, dating/friends, exclusively dating to being in a full-fledged relationship that ultimately leads to marriage. How dare you make assumptions about being in a relationship when terms of agreement have not been discussed. That is the quickest way to be embarrassed or left in the dark! Has someone ever tried to tell you that “you for the streets,” but technically you are still single and free to mingle?! Millennials have the game all screwed up and they do not value building a friendship before developing a relationship – you may get hit with “no new friends,” or “let’s be friends with benefits.” If we wine & dine does that automatically make you mine? Has your woman tried to cut off access to the goodies until you make her an honest woman and put a ring on it? So-called relationships and cheaters will wear you the fuck out! Chuck the deuces, because sometimes leaving may be the best method! Grab your Henny ‘cause we have plenty!
