Lady Of The Month: Imani Hakim

As you know, we can’t have a gentleman of the month without a lady of the month. And this month we have none other than Imani Hakim, some of you may don’t know her by her birth name but if you grew up on “everybody hate Chris” than you will remember her role as Chris sassy baby sister "Tonya". She has since grown up to be a beautiful young woman, and now she stars in Netflix new movie called “burning sands” (which is a good movie I watch it last night, and I see now I need to pay my Netflix bill cause I'm missing some good movies) in which she did a quick interview with me about the film; and she also open up her love life and more.


Everyone knows you from “everybody hates Chris”, have it been hard for you to transition from that role since the have series have ended?


My transitioning from child to young adult star has been an amazingly great experience. I really have to credit my parents and manager for keeping me grounded. I try to align myself with the right crowd. I do meditation, yoga, and journaling which have also been major keys in helping me during different periods in my career.



   What advice you would give someone that chasing their dreams in acting?

I advise other artists to find another outlet that’s in their creative control to maintain themselves in between gigs. Dive into other things that make you feel good. Keep yourself busy doing other things that make you happy. It will keep you sane for much longer.”



  Would you date someone who is in the same career paths as you?

Yes, I would. Actors are beautiful people. We can be a bit over the top and dramatic, but we’re lovely and we feel things deeply lol.




         Do you think your career keep you from dating, and relationship?
No, I’ve been in amazing relationship for the past two years. If anything, it makes it easier. My partner supports me full throttle so all I have to worry about is keeping the grind going…lol.


            How do you stay in your own lane without fallen into the child star curse?

                  Where do you see yourself and your career in 10 years?
Producing and directing my own projects! Starring in everything! You may just get sick seeing me.



                What kind of men you are into?
The nice ones…. kidding. Seriously, anyone who supports me, uplifts me, loves me unconditionally but also has his own thang going. I’m lucky to have found all of that in someone I’m dating now. He really pushes me and makes me a better person every day, even when I’m not trying to hear it … lol




                  You have a new film on Netflix, can you tell us more about it?
I play Rochon, the girlfriend of Zurich [played by Trevor Jackson]. Rochon is a strong and independent young queen who knows where she’s going in life. She’s also a fashion major at the University they attend.



              What else should we expect from upcoming this year?
I have more projects that have not release date, but fans can keep up with me on social media. There is where I post future project dates.

The Top Five Worst Women To Be In A Relationship With

Well, I was asked, and I deliver so to speak. Even though I don’t post the letters of questions I receive from women, I still answer back. And I read these letters seeing how women answer their own questions, to why they have relationship problems. I knew if I wrote this article that I would be label as a “pick me” and that not even the case. I’m far from a “pick me” but I have observed certain behavior where I knew why these women were still single. This list is not only for my readers, writing this made me look at some of my actions as well in what areas I need to work on as I continue to grow as a woman. Before I wrote this, I had to ask 5 men, and these were the women they chose who gave them hell. Yes, I’m aware that some of these actions were fueled by the hand of men who let them down and broke their heart. But it's no point to carry that into your next relationship. Like I always say you don’t have to agree with me, but it has to be written. So, here are the top five wors…

When Hurt People Hurt: Nas and Kelis

You can’t fix what you didn’t break. Sometimes the demons we face, are not the person we’ve dated fault. We’ll never know the demons anyone truly face, until they decide if they want to take it out on us. We try to be there and show them something different but soon realize their demons are slowly killing us. As I come to learn a man is his mother image. A man is what his mother make him to be, he may carry out some of his father actions; but his character come from his mother. Like a woman is what her father tell her to be. Whether he speak it with his words or speak it with his actions (by not being in her life), a woman carry her father words with her everywhere she goes and in all of her relationships. That why sometimes when a man is reckless, if his mother understand his actions then no one else opinion of him even matter. Vice versa with a woman. We chose to play doctor but doesn’t stay around to fully cure that person injuries. We just add more cuts, to an already wounded soul…

Dating In Memphis: Top 5 Places To Go On a Date In Memphis

If you’re from Memphis then you know everyone favorite line here is “it nothing to do in Memphis”. Before last year I used to think the same thing. Going to the same hangouts, and eating at the same restaurants then getting on social media crying about how it nothing to do here or Memphis isn’t safe anymore. And of course, everyone favorite line "they shut down all the fun places in Memphis". It wasn’t until one night that I went out, and I had the time of my life at a place I never been before. The crazy part is I drove past this place several times not knowing it was a great place to hang out, and have fun (then the food was good). Since everyone here claim it nothing to do in Memphis, it leads to lack of creativity in the dating department. Well, this is where I step in and try to help. Dating is what keep the relationship alive. No matters how long you been with the person, you still have to date that person to keep that fire burning. The thing is nowhere in this univers…
