Bravo has grasps the attention of all of “black” twitter once again with its newest show Blood Sweat & Heels. And let’s just say, as the previews portray the ratchet is sure to come out. Le Sigh. I was really excited and rooting for this show because I thought it was about entrepreneurial strong women and their careers and friendships. BUT I should have known positive television rarely exist anymore. Don’t get me wrong, a few of the ladies I adore.

However, when an older woman dates a younger man, she is considered a “cougar” and “trying to get her groove back”.
