MS Congeniality – S2 E3 – Jerika Broussard

November 8, 2017

We go artsy-fartsy this week as we tour artist Jerika Broussard’s hippie shotgun home.  We see naked people art and try on some of the wildest shoes I’ve ever seen. Jerika also takes us to her mural at Fishbone Alley and signs her name to it right here on the show!! If this Mississippi girl isn’t a stereotype stomper, I don’t know who is.

MS Congeniality – S2 E1 – Cruisin’ the Coast 2017

October 8, 2017

I’ve always wanted to drive an antique car at Cruisin’ the Coast in South Mississippi, but most car enthusiasts are a bit too scared to lend me the keys to their precious rides, if even for 5 minutes!

"Singer Fashionista Poet"

MS Congeniality [EP 22] – Ladybug

April 26, 2017

I bet you never dreamed I’d be interviewing a 5-year-old, but the day has come. And honestly, it’s my cutest interview ever. Ladybug, also known as the Fashion Doll, has over 50,000 followers, fondly referred to as her Ladybuggers. She was even the youngest model signed to her agency, and was recommended to me as a must interview. As a singer, fashion model, and overall personality, Ladybug is wowing her fans by simply being herself. What’s fascinating about Ladybug is her ability to fearlessly belt out Somewhere Over the Rainbow right after giving me a tour of her fairy houses and favorite toys.

"Party of the Century"

MS Congeniality [EP 19] – MS Bicentennial Celebration South (Pt 1)

April 5, 2017

I hope you enjoyed the inside perspective of this truly historical event. Mississippi should be appreciated for the beauty that it truly is. A place where diversity forms a fabric that holds us together. A place where blues, big bands, military salutes, and passing out beads are the norm!

She never stops shining and sparkling, even when she takes out the trash…with a crown on. She may live an eccentric lifestyle, making blueberry wine at home, collecting teddy bears, and crowns…but there’s no denying Sonia is not your typical Mississippian.
