Erica Ford & Kheperah KearseAt the @BET House Party Real Talk with Erica Ford


During this conversation, Erica Ford asked me, "How Do You Heal in the Midst of Trauma?" Typically, the process of healing from trauma begins after the situation has passed. However, research shows that most Black African American descendants of slaves have experienced a lifetime of trauma due to what Dr. Joy DeGruy has identified as post-traumatic slave syndrome and ongoing systemic racism, with 1 in 3 suffering from some form of PTSD due to cumulative stress.Ironically, while we work on healing from generational traumas of the past, we are simultaneously at risk of being re-traumatized by the extreme acts of violence we are constantly witnessing and experiencing on a daily basis, whether on social media, on the news or in the streets..This constant state of mental and emotional stress keeps the blood and body acidic, causing many of the pre-existing conditions which led to the highest rates of Coronavirus-related deaths in the Black community.Now more than ever, it is imperative to exercise daily practices to prevent cumulative stress and continue to break deeper generational cycles of trauma at the cellular level, so that we can restore and sustain mental/emotional wellbeing.

Little People, Big World

Youtube

Kicking off this week's Reality Reel, TLC's Little People, Big World is preparing to say goodbye to its latest season and part of the family's past. The show, which follows the Roloffs as they upkeep their family farm while navigating life at four feet tall, has been airing since 2006.

Over fourteen years later, the family is wrapping up on season 21.

This ending of a season is especially bittersweet as the Roloffs are packing up to move and saying goodbye to the farm and family home.

Amy Rollof told us how hard it has been to make the adjustment.

"You sometimes don't think that you can get through it. And moving...I was like "where am I gonna go?" Like, my life is forever changing."

She went on to reveal the hardest part of it all...

"It's always been hard for me to watch my own show. To tell you the truth that is the hardest thing about doing this show for so many years."

Counting down to the season finale, Amy has been doing Instagram live sessions where she answers fans questions while sharing some favorite recipes. She currently runs her own shop called "Amy Roloff's Little Kitchen" where she sells home goods, kitchen supplies, apparel and more.

Check out this new series: I Love a Mama's Boy

The trailer is as awkward as it sounds. On this new show, viewers follow a few couples across the country who bud heads over who the most important woman is in a relationship. While the girlfriends are certain their priorities should come first, their boyfriends are convinced that mother knows best.

We talked to just one of the couples, Emily and Shekeb, ahead of the season premiere.

Explaining the situation, Emily said:

"I'm never, you know, prioritized in his life. You know...in my eyes, I wanna be number one."

Shekeb gave his response:

"It's not so bad though. I'm trying to keep the balance."

We hope to see the two find some middle ground on the show!

I Love a Mama's Boy premiers October 35th on TLC.
