*Vh1’s new hit show “Love & Listings” is back for season 2 and there are new faces joining the cast. “Love & Listings” follows young and successful black professionals in the real estate industry.
The show showcases the ups and downs of dealing with a high-end clientele and the pressure of selling luxury homes. But this season, newcomers Maverick and Devon add a different element to the show. Maverick and Devon are brothers and cofounders of SocaLocations, which focuses on luxury vacation rentals and locations for film and TV shoots.
It’s always exciting and refreshing to see black professionals in spaces we see mostly white men. It’s also inspiring to see us create our own lanes in those spaces, and that is exactly what Maverick and Devon have done. They both started in the entertainment industry when they were young. Devon was a model and Maverick was a child actor. As Maverick got older he stayed in the industry but was more behind the scenes and that’s where he discovered the need for his business skills.
“I did a lot of PA work and I just kind of shadowed the location guy. I thought his job was really interesting, and I was like well maybe I can do this,” says Maverick.
Even though the brothers have been in the entertainment industry for years this is their first time as cast members on a reality TV show. With most reality shows, the drama is what drives it. Our correspondent L.Marie asked Maverick and Devon about their initial thoughts on joining the show.
“We didn’t know what to expect honestly,” says Devon. He also went on to say that of course they will show the business side but will also show their personal lives.
“Everything is about balance though, we love to have fun. We’re not just the business guys,” says Maverick.
Seems like they live by the work-hard-play-hard motto. So, to see these men in action make sure to check out “Love & Listings” on VH1 every Monday at 9/8c.

‘What Have You Done for Black People?’ Obama Sits Down in Person With The Breakfast Club (Watch)
*President Obama’s jam-packed book tour for “A Promised Land” stopped by The Breakfast Club Wednesday morning for a wide-ranging interview, including the ongoing question by that one Black person in your orbit who keeps asking, “What has Obama done for Black people?”
DJ Envy asked Obama how he takes it when people question what he’s done for people of color, or say that he hasn’t done enough.
“I understand it because when I got elected, there was so much excitement and hope… And I also think we generally viewed the presidency as almost like a monarchy.In the sense of, ‘once the President is there he can just do whatever he needs to get done and if he’s not doing it then it must be because he didn’t want to do,’” Obama said.
He then pointed out that the current president appears to be able to “do what he wants” because he “breaks the law.” But Obama said he was very confident in what he had done for “Black folks” during his time in office “because I had the statistics to prove it.”
He said that among his accomplishments for African Americans, 3 million more Black people had health insurance who didn’t have it before, the number of Black folks in prison dropped for the first time in years, 30 percent fewer people were in the juvenile correction system, Black poverty dropped to its lowest level since 1968, Black businesses and income rose, and data shows that “millions of Black folks were better off by the time I left office.”
After Charlamagne Tha God pressed him to be more specific about his policies that aided Black people, rather than the “rising tide lifts all boats” answer, Obama conceded, “There is no way in eight years to make up for 200 years.”
Here’s Obama’s full interview with DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne Tha God.

*Singer Fantasia has announced that she and her husband of five years Kendall Taylor are expecting their first child together.

Fantasia has two children from previous relationships; 19-year-old Zion and 8-year-old Dallas.
The singer gave birth to Zion as a teenager and last year she posted a series of photos and videos of her daughter in honor of her 18th birthday.
In the caption she wrote: “I remember the day my water broke. It was the scariest feeling in the world. We lived in Winston Salem at the time and Papa Joe had left the house for a second and so I called the ambulance. Zi, I was terrified because I was so young and I wanted to give you the world but I didn’t know how I was going to do it. You came a little early and at the time I was thinking it was because you were either nosey (lol) or you heard all my cry’s and felt you needed to come on out and protect me. Now I see it was the protection part and still to this day you go hard for Mommy!”
Fanny also recalled a funny memory of Zion as a toddler and the family pet.
“We had a dog named Diva,” she explained. “Zion would hit her from time to time, she was 3 years old, and Diva would always get her butt right back. When she did, Zion would run in the room crying, ‘Diva Said, Diva Said.’ I told her DIVA CANT TALK ZION!!”
In a second post she noted of watching her daughter grow up: “[I’m] having a hard time with this 18 thing.”
