Move over Barbara Walters & Co. There’s a new gaggle of talk mistresses in town (or more precisely, Motown) and they’re making more waves than a gale-force tsunami.
Meet All Girl Talk Radio—Tamika Montgomery (aka “The Conservative Ms. Tika”), Irresha Byrd (“Ms. Muse”), Jessica Hence (“Ms. Jai”) and Angela Smith (“Rambunctious Angie”).
“This foursome of Detroit-raised businesswomen, wives and moms,” Time reports, “has steadily gathered steam in recent months as their hot topics and smart, sassy on-air personalities have reeled in thousands of listeners a week, some as nearby as W. 7 Mile Road and some as far away as the United Kingdom.
“Taken together, they’re the masterminds behind a year-old show that sounds at times like a raucous, take-no-prisoners cross between The View, the sitcom Girlfriends and the casual chatter of four homies under the hairdryers at a west-side salon,” the magazine continues.
“The All Girl Talk hosts seem especially adept at, and keenly fascinated by, relationship issues, exploring the full gamut of intimate interactions, from the dynamics of romance to the tenuousness of friendships to the thorniest aspects of parent-child ties.
“Recent episodes…have included topics like ‘I’m Loved Sexually…But Not Emotionally,’ ‘What Do Women Really Want,’ ‘Church People: Are They Backstabbers?’ and ‘What’s Up With These Damn Kids?’”
Congratulations ladies—on hitting the, ah, big “Time.”
