    I would LOVE to encourage that chick to get an abortion and keep her life moving… not because he suggested it, but because why bring an unwanted child into a ratchet situation?

    • kelis

      I think she should have the baby if she wants it, but also be prepared to have a child whose father wants nothing to do with him/her. The courts can make him pay child support but they cannot make him love the child.

      • Suchalady

        Yeah I would never encourage someone to get an abortion. The hurt from this man may suck but the pain of not having her child forever will be far worse.

  • Amanda

    I died when he oh so breifly mentioned Kreyshawn lmfao

    • Kordell’s Divorce Papers

      Who is Kreyshawn you speak of?

      • Keyshia Cole’s career memorial

        Perhaps you know her under her government name which is a SMOOTH Julie

        • J


        • Kisha

          Her real name is something like Anastasia Gail. LOLLLL

          • missmarchmommy

            I think her real name is Gertrude Abernathy lol

        • Mendeeceez


  • Kimz

    “Island dick…island pussy” lololol Big up Jamaica!!!

  • Kelly’s wig carrier

    Yaaaaaaaasssssss! I haven’t even heard the podcast yet, but yaaaaaaasss! Welcome back, shade twins!

  • hollablackgirl

    FINALLY! I been feeling like a crackhead trying to get my “Read” fix! Fury has me over here twitching and questioning my life for over a week waiting for this!

    • Yep It’s Kwanzaa

      right I refreshed the home page last Friday about 10 times just holding on the slim glimmer of hope that maybe….

  • ef

    Crying @ the New York quotes. The fact that I know most of them shows how legendary miss Tiffany Pollard is.

    • Boo

      HBIC legend, I ain’t forgotten. We ain’t forgotten.

    • Jazz

      Bitch, every time Fury spit a New York quote my soul jumped from my body and did the cat daddy. She was the best thing ever to appear on my TV screen and I live for her ratchet legacy. I get my life from this podcast…like….ya’ll down even know. So get your ass DOWNSTAIRS. Yasss!!

  • Keyshia Cole’s career memorial

    All the new York quotes were just….EVERYTHING. I MISS that delusional broad! She was briefly on DTLA for Logo but nothing since.

    And I’m also glad you discussed the Met Gala as SO many people didn’t dress in the dress code and it made me IRATE. Madonna & Miley, whose hair while not pretty was theme approriate, were the most prominent mainstream celebs to truly nail it while Julie Macklowe & Zandra Rhodes were my other faves.

    Great ep as always and man – those questions were crazy, especially the last one!

  • Ericc Chappell

    Yassss, ya’ll back this is the shit

  • Yayr.

    Filled out the survey. Fan from Australia.

    • Ericc Chappell

      your name though, Security this person is trying to kill me

  • Trenelle Doyle

    Mr. Fury…. I understand that you need a vacation every now and then, but please don’t do this to me again! I need my fix <3

  • ZJ

    Ricardo Tisci designed Kartrashyass’ dress. He and Anna Wintour shaded the hell of her with that floral monstrosity, and I’m here for every bit of it.

  • Yep It’s Kwanzaa

    Clearly Island dk and p*ssy is not the way to go look at Chris and look at Lauryn you’re two examples to stay the fk away from them.

    LMAO at Fury quoting NY the whole show I’m mad I actually remember these quotes and why she said them. Oh NY you were a bitchy Treat.

    Ana Wintour probably gave a smooth as look over her glasses concerning Kimberly’s outfit. I bet Kanye won’t get a plus one ticket next damn year lmao. Like after all those years of being snubbed and you show up looking like Ms. Doubtfire’s understudy.

  • Trenelle Doyle

    FUCK! I missed you Mr. Fury (Okay sis. I’ll calm down now.)

  • CadyHeron

    I MISSED THE READ! Yall returned to give me Life. YASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS for Tiffany Pollard!
    “Beyonce’? Bitch, you look like Luther Vandross.”

  • Maharaja Misty

    What was with these E. Lynn Harris, Tyler Perry Villain ass letter’s y’all got? They were so ..dramatic, I mean damn. I bet you TP woulda got the lightest, most edumuhcated sounding black person to play the role of ‘Aaliyah’s’ boss, that’s some Terrance Howard worthy shit. Jesus. (0_0)

    Anyway, if we are going to embark upon the topic of Bey’s ensemble at the Met, we need to discuss the growing suspension that Jay put another baby in her, and what that may mean for the rest of us with this new project. I know y’all don’t wanna speak that into existence (and yes baby’s are a blessings, and shit) but c’mon now. That arbitrary ass belt? Bey don’t do arbitrary ass belts, she does waist CINCHING OF THE GAWDS. These random tentative ass album snippets, Something is askew, and y’all know it. I am THEE last woman God put breath in to be on celeb baby bump watch, so if I’m saying this….Look.

    About the Kim Katastrophe. I’ve said this, and I’ll reiterate it, while I sometimes feel bad for the flack she gets, that slip cover ass dress, w/matching disrespectful gloves were completely avoidable. Kanye shoulda accepted Kim in her Intermix bliss as he met her, stop trying to make this woman ‘Chic’ sir. It’s only illicited more ridicule, and disdain. Stahp It.

    Also I am completely here for a Tiffany Pollard retrospect and an in-depth look at what she has done for my life, and the black diaspora.

    • Sticky-n-Sweet

      Maaaan…and now she’s all “Blue needs playmates” Well get a puppy! I need that single, and another, and another…

    • Yep It’s Kwanzaa

      Kim’s fashion sense has plummeted. People used to actually look forward to seeing her on the red carpet since she brought nothing else of value to the table. Kimberly Ann if you don’t tell mother west to stop dippin in your closet cause he is NOT a good stylist.

      And if Ana really does give the ok to the final looks and said okay to that SHE DESERVES A PARADE and a key to the city for being the shadiest heifa alive!

    • Marketing Gimmicks

      I am utterly hurt and broken that “Grown Woman” is starting to seem like it has a snowball’s chance in hell of owning edges for a lifetime. I watch that You Tube clip of Bey slaying in France damn near every day.

    • Adaeze Duru

      you ain’t shit talking ’bout black diaspora and Ms. I love NY. Making me laugh like a fool in public. for shame!

    • Jazz

      Kim in her Intermix bliss…my goodness.

      Who are you and how can we be friends?

  • Just Sayin

    yesssssss ! my week is complete. Scandal & The Read ! whooooooooooooooooooooooooo.
    okay, i will act like i have behavior now.

  • OhIts_Amanda

    Omfg the Tiffany Pollard quotes!!! Yas!!

  • RihannasVocalCoach

    The New York quotes….why could i visualize each and every one?! Also Anna Wintour gets a standing ovation for that LEGENDARY shade she threw at Kim. wow. I think she has been cooking that turkey for a lonnnnggg time. I mean, to block someone for so long then when they are allowed have them be the mockery of the met ball??? My hat is tipped to you, you nasty bitch. As for Krayola, at least she has found a valid excuse for being irrelevant. To the side jawn letter…on a serious note the man could be bisexual or just not your standard heterosexual male. Open minds and open legs can be quite an adventure and you have to be ready for that.

    • Kelly’s wig carrier

      “Open minds and open legs can be quite an adventure and you have to be ready for that” words to live by.

  • ChilliLipstick

    The shade in this show never stops lol.

  • ChilliLipstick

    That whole situation with the CEO and the baby. That man’s gonna get what’s coming for him, trying to force a woman to get an abortion

  • ✨MRC1981✨

    As always you guys did an outstanding job on The Read. Please keep up the good work. The commentary give me life!!!!!


    1) Those New York Quotes = YES!

    2) Ciara and Narcolepsy aren’t getting married, they’re just going to continuously take naps together and watch their careers fade away.

    3) Lauryn Hill didn’t go to jail for the whole tax evasion and the debt she owed. She went to jail because she put out that raggedy ass song that sounds like a 15 year old student with autism decided to get into a studio and rap her presentation for “Earth Day” Had she put out a song that was genuine, sounded amazing and wasn’t fucking cuckoo for coco puffs, she would be amongst the free.

    The judge heard that song and said:

  • Chrissy’s Mole ft. Chrissy

    OMG, me and my coworker were explaining to our white female coworkers not to EVER touch a black woman’s hair unless you don’t want your fingers or life!! This was a white man who told the white women this fact which opened the door for this convo. Can we say each one teach one?

    • Adaeze Duru

      white men learnt that lesson sometime ago

  • Kimz

    Oh forgot to leave this comment. Those who submit to asktheread and you talk about them on the show should put “Follow up!!” in the subject of their next email so we can know what happened :)

    Just a thought

    Kid fury is my spirit animal .

  • sam cook

    Whats really got my goat….lls !!!

  • Nene Leakes’ Edges

    This bitch said “I already wasn’t in line to get some…”

    I fucking can’t right now, wheres my damn casket.

  • Liquarius L

    “you would’ve thought we were gone like a black father.” – OMG!

  • CaramelHottie

    This podcast was EVERYTHING. Well worth the wait..

    1) Fury don’t sympathize for Kim. She doesn’t deserve a pregnancy pass cause clearly she’s not enjoying it.

    2) In regards to her dress, the REAL shade is that the man who’s been her man’s lover for years is the man who designed that fuck shit of a dress. Idc what the fuck you stans think but Kim is his beard and he’s been climbing Riccardo’s back for forever now…

    3) That last fan letter was pure trash! You mean to tell me you need a confession from a MAN who likes for you to put dildo’s in his ass, watches gay and transgender porn AND wants you to strap him down??!! Clearly she sent this in for the KiKi cause I couldn’t fathom anyone being this naive.
