"As-Salaam-Alaikum," "Peace be unto you"

RedefiningHERstory Presents: 
“Da Get Down on Social Media's Streetz" 

Today's Topics: Muslim Judge Sheila Abdus-Salaam… Found Dead, R.I.P. Charlie Murphy, Janet Jackson’s Divorce, and Kandi Burruss’s Lawsuit?!?

Now... before we get started... “Da Get Down on Social Media's Streetz” will showcase content that discussing trending topics on social media. You know those topics that make you cry or even laugh… or the ones that you mentally classify as being rich people's problems… 

Or the ones that make you say… in your Jay Kyle’s voice… You know… Jay... the mom from My Wife and Kids… okay… this Jay that says… “What Type of Foolishness” is this while shaking your head and thanking GOD for the fact that… you may be poor… or not where you want to be… but at least you got some sense about yourself and if you every get your chance… or hit that dang lottery… you will show those fools!! 

"Da Get Down"... for short... was coined by my lovely twin daughters and their friends... Wow... teenagers can be so creative at times... when you can finally get them off those dang cell phones... Let’s begin…


Muslim Judge Sheila Abdus-Salaam… Found Dead


Trailblazing Judge Sheila Abdus-Salaam, New York State’s first Black female judge to sit on New York State’s Court of Appeals.

The Princeton Encyclopedia of American Political History dubbed Judge Abdus-Salaam the first female Muslim to serve as a U.S. judge and is nationwide widely hailed as being that.  
A spokesman for the New York Police Department, stated that although it is too early to tell how the judge died, their investigation is trying to rule out… or maybe… determine… whether the judge committed suicide which was confirmed by the New York City Medical Examiner, reported Corky Siemaszko, a NBCNews.com writer.

Judge Abdus-Salaam’s body was found floating in the Hudson River, Wednesday afternoon near Manhattan. 

The judge’s body was fully clothed with her MetroCard in her pocket with no obvious signs of trauma on her body, explained Siemasko.

Reports have stated that the 65-year-old judge, who resided near Harlem, spent the weekend with her husband, the Reverend Gregory Jacobs, in New Jersey.

As a trailblazing jurist, Justice Abdus-Salaam’s legacy has “distinguished herself as a champion of the poor and downtrodden and as a hedge against the powerful and politically-connected corporations,” reported Siemaszko.

“She also wrote a landmark decision that gave the non-biological parent in a same sex couple visitation rights after a breakup,” continued Siemaszko.

Now... can somebody please explain to me... and you can leave your comments below... how the "H-E- DBL- HOCKEY STICKS"... can a a New York City judge... just up and disappear after spending the weekend with her husband?!? Now my Spidey Senses are telling me... something is afoot!

This story here is close to my heart and I will be following this one closely. As a Black Muslim woman who is aware of the ideologies about Islam and its followers… I pray to ALLAH that this wasn’t a hate crime. 

Reports have also disclosed that Judge Abdus-Salaam also held the New York Police Department to an ethical standard and oftentimes would get on them if the conduct was deemed questionable.

RedefiningHERstory: One Blog Post at a Time would like to send our condolences to the Judge Abdus-Salaam’s family and friends. I pray that we find out… in a timely manner… what really happened to this trailblazing Judge… so her family can finally have peace and closure. May ALLAH Bless her family, friends and all! Less move along…

R.I.P. Uncle Charlie Murphy


As you all know… unless you have been living under a rock… that one of the funniest man alive, Charlie Murphy, passed away at age 57 from Leukemia.

Murphy was a well-known Black American comedian, actor and writer… and big brother to one of my favs… Eddie Murphy. Do you know that my kids had the nerves to ask me who Charlie and Eddie Murphy were… 

Shucks... they can tell me about the Martin Luther Kings and the Malcom Xs, but can’t tell me about Uncle Charlie and Eddie… well after I dusted of my old DVDs and made them stay up all night while I reminisced… they’ll never ask me that question again… The nerves of these kids for not knowing their Black history!?!

But seriously… Murphy’s popularity soared as a contributing writer and a funny attraction to the Chappelle Show which was a sketch-comedy series on Comedy Central.

Comedian Charlie Murphy dies at age 57
Murphy who passed away Wednesday was secretly suffering from Leukemia. 

MedicineNet website explained that Leukemia is a disease in which cancer attacks a person’s blood cells which hinders their body’s ability to fight various infections. 

It is oftentimes referred to as being the blood cancer.

“While the exact cause(s) of leukemia is not known, risk factors have been identified, including radiation exposure and exposure to benzene,” explained MedicineNet website.

Murphy’s untimely death will leave a huge void in the entertainment industry. RedefiningHERstory: One Blog Post at a Time would like to send our deepest condolences to the Murphy family and friends as well as to his adoring fans.

Rest in Peace, Uncle Charlie… you will be missed!

Numerous reports have stated that the impending divorce of Ms… oops… I mean Mrs. WHAT HAVE YOU DONE FOR ME LATELY?... well… I can think of $200 million things he has done for you lately… has hit the motherload of all come ups!


Jackson who has been rumored to have converted to Islam… I better throw in an allegedly… I don’t want any future problems to arise over these rich people problems… will be about $200 million dollars richer from her five-year marriage breakup from husband, Qatari businessman, Wissam Al Mana over his controlling ways.

According to a report released by New York Post, the prenup entitled Jackson to $100 million if the couple stayed married for five years, and it would double… meaning she would get another $100 million… if they had a child together.

Well… it seems to me… that Mrs. IN CONTROL… is also… rolling in dough… after 5 years… 3 months… 7 days… 5 hours… 33 minutes… and 11… oops… 12… took to long for me to type out my thoughts… oh man… 13 seconds of marriage! Um... side note... I just made up those numbers after 5 years... honestly... I'm not really that invested in this story... but you might be... so moving on...

50-year-old Janet Jackson  and  husband Wissam Al Mana
Now… some of the New York Post’s sources have stated that she isn’t leaving because of the money… 


It’s strictly because of his traditional Islamic customs and she wants to get back to being that sexy icon that we all know her as being… yeah okay… is that the story we’re telling Janet… allegedly… telling Janet... Because if she were standing here... 



I would be looking at her with the grandmother's peer... you know... looking over my glasses... not thru... but over because my Spidey Senses... once again... are telling me that something's afoot here… because by my calculations... let me see if I got all of the facts...

Um... 5 years + 1 baby boy = $200 million... all I know is.. I think... I GOT JIPPED... and one or three of those baby daddies owe me some money... and those kids of theirs... better work on their attitudes around here!!

Now... if you don't agree with me... then you're more than welcome to leave your comments below and let's discuss it further... because l can think of… let me think… off the top of my head… $200 million other reasons Janet's leaving… Just Saying!!

Well… we at RedefiningHERStory: One Blog Post at a Time... wish Mrs. Jackson, her rich azz… oops… I mean… controlling azz husband… allegedly… and their precious bundle of joy all the best… and may ALLAH bless their situation... okay...I better move it along… before I get my crazy self sued…

Johnnie… You Done Gone and Made Kandi Mad!


My… my… my… Johnnie… Johnnie… Johnnie… and I’m not talking about that sexy soul singing one… you know… that Johnnie Gill… not him… the other Johnnie… from the House Maiden show… yep… that one…  Look what Phadera has gotten you into?!?

This situation first was brought to our attention… and Girl… I had to clutch my pearls when I found out… and I can assume Kandi Burruss did too… on Season 9 of The Real House Maidens of the ATL.

To get everybody up to speed… you know for those who don’t watch the show or may have forgotten how this started… well… Girl, let me tell you… see… what had happened… well… better yet… here’s a clip…


Kandie’s ex-employee Johnnie Winston got upset and waltzed his ridiculous azz to Phadrea’s office… you know… she’s supposed to be an entertainment attorney, but her last client… tried to blow the building that houses her law office… the “F” up… according to the Word on the Streets star correspondent and leader of the Old Lady Gang (Tha OLG)… Mama Joyce… Kandi’s mom… allegedly

Well… Mr. Whining Pants Winston decided to sue Kandi… oops… allegedly… wait… hold on… do I have to write allegedly if we watched it play out on television?!? Okay… whatever… Johnnie is trying to sue Kandi for not paying him his overtime wages when he was working as her assistant… now… although he no longer works as her assistant… she occasionally hired his services as an event planner… remember… he was the event planner for her outrageous… Coming to America themed wedding…

Well, the story goes… according to RadarOnline.com, that Mrs. Buruss has filed her own lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern Division of Georgia… try to say all of that... 3 times fast… well… allegedly… that ungrateful azz Johnnie… has made statements that “were not only slanderous, defamatory and calculated to injure [Kandi’s] public persona and professional brand, but were also in breach of the Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Agreement signed by Mr. Winston.”

Well… once again… my Spidey Senses are telling me that this is all for publicity for Whining Winston to get some free publicity for his… soon to be failing… event planning company. It seems to me… and this is just me guessing… that Kandi was probably his biggest client and kept the money flowing in and dumb-dumb allowed himself to be played by his greed…  

I betcha somebody wishes that when they took their sensitive azz over to Plotting Phadera Parks’ office… they would have carried that Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Agreement over there with them… Just Saying!

Well… since Season 9 has come to an end… and this blog post… I know… I know… but I must get my Soulful Sunday content written… I’m sure this will play out on the finale… but we dang for sure know it’s going to play out on social media… so keep checking your FB and Twitter feeds…

Well… that’s all the time I have… please leave your comments below and until next time… and as usual…

Stay Blessed Queens!


May ALLAH Continue to Bless Us All!
