Africa reminds Tribble that life is what happens while you're busy texting, and shakes her head at Africa's non-apology.

I will sum up this whole alcohol-fueled performance with two words: "Girl bye!" I wasn't here for it and neither was Monica or Megan. We had a great night and wanted to end it on a high note. What exactly was she faux apologizing for? Causing a scene at my birthday party? Making the snide remarks inside? Someone clear that up for me. . .I'll wait. SMH. . .

The only surprisingly good thing to come out of this after party was Vawn and I's moment in the parking lot. I don't know the exact moment that something changed between us, but it did. When he asked me out, I felt like I had to throw caution to the wind and say yes!

Tribble and Justin. . .LOL! Ladies we all want to be a fly on the wall when a guy is talking about us. This was definitely an eye opener.

Ricco and Angela are my glam squad; they know me very well and I respect their opinion. As Angela said, "text is the new call, " but I still would like more effort, at least in the beginning. To all the men in the world: if you are really interested, pick up the phone! I don't mind texting at all, but not the first time I hear from you. I wish Tribble had been more forward. Even though Vawn and I have been working together he formally asked me out, and it made all the difference for me. So guys, be a lion!

OK this dinner. . .wow. Totally blew me away. Vawn paid attention to things I've said in casual conversation and put together an amazing night for me. I had a very specific opinion of him and this dinner was the beginning of me seeing that maybe I was wrong. The whole dinner was very sweet and endearing and I saw a more vulnerable side of Vawn. Is it bad to kiss your friend!?! So here's to mixing business and pleasure and not having it be an epic fail!

Em's party was a lot of fun. I'm glad the re-introduction of her dad and Justin was without incident. I didn't necessarily feel awkward about seeing Tribble. He didn't really follow through and life is what happens when you're busy texting. He is a great guy and I do want us to be friends. . .I just think that now isn't the time for us.

Oooh Emily and that temper lol!!! Drinks and Justin are dangerous. We have all been there.

Hope you guys enjoyed! I'll also be blogging about my hair/wardrobe on the show at and other updates at

See you next week!

The Fighter is Not Who Tribble Is

Tribble on why he apologized to Vawn, what he won't apologize for, and why he shouldn't get thrown under the bus.

So this show starts off with the "fall out" from the episode before. Emily came over to my house and brought me doughnuts (thanks for the temptation). Vawn is talking about "being grown men and not letting it spill in the streets," but he was the one that came after me. I never put my hands on him until after he touched my face. I was happy to get out of there, trust me. I wasn't going to wait around when it was about me versus the world in that room.

And I don't remember ever actually touching him. He ripped the mic violently from me when I was trying to finish what I was saying. Did I go too far? Maybe. But I felt what I had to say needed to be said, and just because it didn't coincide with Vawn and his panel's views, doesn't mean that he can come rip the mic from me. That, combined with him touching my nose, was what really set me off. I know for a fact that I didn't put my hands on him until after he touched me. Twitter comments reflect this.

I’m glad that Emily is saying I almost got my ass beat. Thanks a lot Emily for believing in your boy! I stood my ground until about 10 of his boys came after me. Plus, I wasn’t dealing with a rational person at that point.

All that being said, I am over this whole situation. I have apologized to Vawn about HOW I approached the situation and getting heated in the moment, but I am not going to apologize for WHAT I said. That is my viewpoint and I am completely entitled to stand up for what I believe in. When I apologized to Vawn, it came from the heart. That dude -- the fighter, the aggressor -- that’s not me. I acted out of character and I am sorry about that.

This is the second show in a row that Africa has completely thrown me under the bus. I realize that you are being loyal to your man, but baby girl, you don’t know me. Saying I came incorrect and not to play, as well as saying I was completely in the wrong about what went down at the forum is a little ignorant. I realize that I am not your man, but at some point I feel like she needs to take a step back from the situation as a whole and look at the writing on the wall. I just think she is caught up right now, and I hope she doesn't mean some of the things she is saying. Same goes with Alex. Just because both of these girls are going after Vawn, doesn’t mean they have to say I am in the wrong. Did anyone see Vawn’s actions that night? No one wants to call him out on ANYTHING that he is doing and when I decide to stand up, I get crucified.

I am glad that my girl is mending her relationships in her life. With Emily 2, I love those two together, and being that they are both feisty as shit, things are gonna come up, but it’s no reason for them to stay mad at each other. With Justin, I am glad that there is some closure. It is sad because I have been through so much with those two, but at this point, I feel like some total time away from each other is best for both of them.

Africa’s show, however, was awesome. Her Lipstick Junkies have come a long way, and I can’t wait to see where they go from here!

Thanks for watching this season of The New Atlanta. Stay tuned for what happens from here, and as always, feel free to check me out on Instagram (@tribblereese) and Twitter (@tribblereese). I’m always on those and will be able to get back to you faster.
