Nothing better than good food and good conversation. So glad we connected on Twitter so I could find this! Love you Nessa! Loved you since Polly! And now on Shameless I can’t believe it’s really you!

Vanessa, this was a good question, it gave your viewers a chance to see that just because they are professional men, doesn’t mean that they had a Superhero as well. I like the way they let their hair down, so-to-speak. Wendy made such a good point. People are always thinking that if you are from the hood, you can’t possibly talk a certain way, relate to serious issues and that you don’t know about anything outside of the hood.
I grew up in Compton, and my mom and dad always told us how to behave. It was eleven of us until not to long ago, when we lost a brother. There wasn’t much that we didn’t do as a family. Pathfinder camping, sports, music, academics, you name it, we did it. I am so lucky because when I hear some celebrities, (especially the ones who turn their nose up at the small people, such as myself) brag about what they have done for the first time, I say, “Huh? Been there, done that!” So I know exactly what Wendy is saying here. Kudos to you Vanessa Bell Calloway! Another GREAT show!

Revision, in my comment above, I was thinking faster than what I was typing.

Hey people, what can I say . . . I have kids! What I wrote earlier about what Wendy had said, actually belongs to episode 5 where Vanessa Bell Calloway asks her friends “What Flaws Have You Worked to Your Advantage?” Watch the webisode!
