Kahdijiha Rowe: “Being Black Was An Issue”



HipHollywood caught up with Big Rich Atlanta star Kahdijiha Rowe to talk about the show’s season finale, her explosive on screen fight with cast-mate Ashlee Wilson-Hawn, and the reality star’s new business venture.

Kahdijiha, daughter of music mogul producer Q. Parker, got into a physical altercation with Hawn during the taping of the Style Network’s reality show, that lead to a legal battle. “Being black was an issue, and that was sad,” the reality star explained when asked what prompted the fight.

“I don’t condone violence, I don’t condone for that to be the way to handle things. But being in that moment the way I felt, that was the reaction … It’s not over, it’s not done, it should be interesting,” Rowe shared.

While Ashley and Khadijia are currently battling their dispute out in court, Kahdijha has been shifting her focus elsewhere. The diva is getting ready to launch her new shoe store, Platform Addicts. “I came up with a collection of fabulous women’s shoes. They are affordable but they are fabulous,” the entrepreneur explained. “My motto is every trophy deserves a platform,” Kahdijiha added.

Kahdijiha plans on launching the store later this month. In the meantime, be sure to check out the season finale of Big Rich Atlanta Sunday night, at 9 p.m.


Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
