"Oh, we're just getting started."

Culture & Entertainment

Gather 'round ladies, our girls are coming back! That's right, Starz has officially ordered a second season of its comedy series Run the World. The show follows a group of smart, funny, and vibrant thirty-something Black women who live, work and play in Harlem. They are best friends, loyal to the soil, and looking to take over their way, as each navigates career highs and lows, hookups and heartbreaks. It's a beautifully written authentic and unapologetic show about friendships that we all wish we had.


The cast was elated for the news too, with the main ladies taking to social media to show off their elation. Continue reading for their reactions and character breakdowns. Are you excited for Season 2?!

Bresha Webb: "Thank you for falling in love with our sisterhood."

Bresha Webb's character, Renee is the free-spirited one of her group. She's soon to be divorced, highly educated, and honestly out here trying to live her best life before she has to admit she is aging. Aren't we all?

"Grateful! Gratefulness Is flowing from my heart! WE'RE BACK!!! I'm so ready to get back to Reneé'n with these beautifully talented Queens! Thank you to our wonderful fans for watching and falling in love with our sisterhood. Welcome to our family @rwilliamsbenary! Thank you to @lionsgate @starz @leighdav @theyvetteleebowser and everyone who made this happen. Let the FUN BEGIN! @runtheworldstarz #runtheworld"

Amber Stevens West: "Thrilled to keep telling these women's stories."

Amber Stevens West brilliantly portrays Whitney, a banker soon-to-be married, but struggling with her future husband's expectations of a wife.

"The news we've all been waiting for! So so thrilled we get to keep telling these women's stories. See ya in 2022! Xoxo #RuntheWorld"

Amber Bordeaux: "Oh, we're just getting started."

Andrea plays Ella McFair an up-and-coming 32-year-old writer recently dropped by her publisher. Since then, her boyfriend left for South Africa, and while she has found a way to keep living in New York, thanks to being Sondi's roommate, life certainly hasn't been easy. Of Season 2, she took to IG to say:

"Oh, we're just getting started. I'd like to share immense gratitude for every single person who has helped to make @runtheworldstarz a hit show. To the viewers, your love and support means so much! Thank you for taking this ride with us. I can't wait to see what's next for #EllaMcFair, her besties, and the other amazing characters."

Corbin Reid: "Grateful that we get to do this again."

Corbin plays Sondi Hill, a Ph.D. candidate with a focus in African-American studies. Sis is "woke" like the best of us, but thankfully, she doesn't play into the term, which we all know can dilute or complicate things more than necessary. Don't get her misconstrued, she can certainly read more into a situation than her friends, or bae Matthew. Of the renewal, Corbin says,

"So very Grateful to every single entity that made this happen, that I get to spend more time as #SondiHill and with all my girls, and that we get to do this again. It's official, @runtheworldstarz season 2 on deck baby!"

As of now, there are no details on when the show is expected to return. But we certainly can't wait to tune in to see what our new favorite ladies are going to give us. Congratulations to this talented cast!

We all know that advocacy for inclusion and equality should be year-round, since we all have to be our fullest selves all day every day. Identity is a key element of doing that, and for LGBTQ+ professionals, this can include the question of coming out at work. Some may wonder whether their personal business is, well, anybody's business at work, while others might want to feel safe in the office being out, loud, and proud. Either way, coming out in the workplace is indeed an issue that not only must be addressed, but addressed appropriately.

Love is beautiful and social media is a wonderful way to showcase and spread it. However, many times it's the content with a bit of controversy or drama tied to it that gets all the double taps. But as my father once told me, "It's fine to seek drama in your art and interests, but love should make you happy and feel peace." When he said that, it stuck with me. For a long time, I think I sought out excitement in my relationships and that can lead to a lot of unhappiness or unhealthy situations.

Simone Biles is a decorated U.S. gymnast who captured the hearts of many with her ambitious, yet graceful moves. However, over the past year, fans got to witness another side of Simone after the gymnast began expressing the issues she's faced regarding her mental health. The Olympic gold medalist shocked everyone when she pulled out of some of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic games, citing "twisties" as the reason. The twisties is a gymnastics term that is described as losing control of your body while spinning in the air.

The relationship we have and nurture with self lays the foundation for how we relate to and connect with others in our lives. Assessing the issues that discourage self-love from prospering are key in order to repair and reignite the freedom that comes when we finally believe the words "you are enough." I chatted with self-love advocate and lifestyle entrepreneur Shelah Marie – who you may remember from when her 2017 photo of doing yoga with boyfriend, rapper Ace Hood, went viral. Shelah's mission is to create a movement of total self-love and liberation for women of color through her platform Curvy, Curly, Conscious – a place where "self-help" meets "real talk" through virtual and offline events and retreats.

The first time I really learned about the five love languages was a year after a big heartbreak in my early twenties, and since then I've found myself exploring the love languages of each of my subsequent partners in an effort to be a better lover to them. At the click of a simple quiz, you'll know whether words of affirmation, acts of service, quality time, receiving gifts, or physical touch is the primary way you prefer to experience love.
