NOT A PRESIDENT

As I get ready to hit downtown Los Angeles to protest Trump and the new administration, let me share a piece I wrote for THE FIGHT magazine last month where I write about attending the first anti-Trump rally here in L.A. and why it’s important to watch, call out, and protest anything Trump does that

Starting Over in Recovery

Day One can be hard as all hell for someone who is getting sober for the first time. But Day One can really suck some major assage for someone who is getting sober again for the second, third, fourth (or more) time after a fender-bending slip-up.

Chi Chi made headlines last year when she found herself on girl interrupted status (more like girl intervened) after she posted a video on

BUT I’M NOT SORRY

Below is a personal ditty I wrote about being on the receiving end of an amends.  It was like… Opposite Day.  I’ve written about this before with not much closure until this point. The article was published in the latest issue of The Fight Magazine. Luv, Me === MAKING AMENDS Amending my past behavior has

ALL DANCE, NO TEA

Photo by Paul Vallejo The White Party Tea Dance pretty much concluded my White Party weekend, because by the time that Sunday morning rolled around, my ass and face had completely collapsed.  I was WRECKED!  Lack of sleep, being sick and being exposed to the elements of the hot desert sun had taken its toll. 

ALL DECKED IN WHITE

Having innocent fun under the sun at the pool party was one thing, but the real event and ultimate test to see how I handle my shit in a circuit party setting would be at the actual White Party which is the mother of all circuit parties. For the big WP, I gave you a
