Episode 145- IDK Who Needs To Hear This
This week KayTheRebel dropped an episode filled with unsolicited advice. LOL. Be happy when people find love (even if it doesn't fit your standard). Many of y'all have twisted the definition of loyalty to your liking & need to quit the BS. Forgiveness is trash; it doesn't do anything except encourage ppl to keep playing with you. Stop personalizing other people's journey. Not everyone is worthy of blessings.

Episode 143- Please Stfu
On this 90 min episode, KayTheRebel and her guest @WittyEmpress918 practically emptied the entire clip. After months of watching men on social media platforms overly use 2 words (submission & aggression), they felt it was time to speak up and set the record straight. Both ladies felt those words are being misused in the midst of creating false narratives when it comes to how women are perceived in the world of dating. They're challenging men to really study the true definition of those words and alter their perspectives. Essentially when you're pointing the finger at women; there are 3 pointing right back at you!!!!

Episode 125- The Purge IX
This week KayTheRebel felt like it was time for another venting session. She brought on her bestie @WittyEmpress918 to add a different perspective to her thoughts/opinions.

Why are folks coming for Jeanie Mai after announcing her pregnancy? Are you really being private or just saving face in your relationship? Why do couples have multiple babies back2back and act surprised when turbulence follows?
