Woman Crush Wednesday

Self-proclaimed Awkward Black Girl, Issa Rae is definitely worthy of WCW this week.  As usual when it comes to TV Shows, I always get on the wave late and I didn’t know anything about Insecure until after the season finale aired and everyone was talking about it, so of course I had to get the free trial of HBO and catch up on the show and see what it was all about.  My GIRL Issa.  At the time I had only lived in LA for about 5 months, but felt as if I could relate to the show to THE T.  Since the show, my girl Issa has definitely evolved.  The media is saying she went form a size 8 (although she looked and was probably more like a size 10 or 12) to a size 0 and I saw her in person at the Essence Festival and she is definitely now a size 0.  She is also just gorgeous and amazing and an excellent writer, actress, and I really wish she would stop playing and give Kofi Siriboe a chance because they would make cute chocolate babies! 🙂
