I was invited to sit in on a meeting with the CEO of Ashley Stewart. Having been plus size my whole life, I was immediately blown away by this young Asian man's passion for this almost dead urban Plus Size chain. He not only understood our need for affordable, hot, plus size clothing options, he also saw how loyal the Ashley Stewart customers and employees are. You can read about it yourself!

Anywho, after hearing James Rhee, express his passion, his vision and various community initiatives, I got to thinking. I said to him, you are doing a wonderful job for plus size women, but forgotten is the Tall Plus girl. I kept talking, he kept listening, and he set up the meeting to make it happen.

August 30th 2018, Ashley Stewart and I launched STAND TALL. This clothing line gives the Taller Plus Size Women stylish options that finally fit. The sleeves and in-seams are longer, there are dresses, jeans, jumpsuit's, business wear and button downs that give a woman shape.

STAND TALL is more than a clothing line, it's a movement that says to all people, "STAND TALL, believe in yourself and who they can become. Thank you Ashley Stewart for standing for us Tall Plus Girls! Stay tuned and be sure to give us feedback on what you'd like to wear....we have a lot to catch up on! Enjoy!!


The legend Billie Jean King, invited me and a guest to her suite for the day-session matches!


My first BIG3 game which happened to be the championship game in Brooklyn at the Barclays Center. Kicking it with MSG Madison Square Garden family, Liberty greats Teresa Weatherspoon and Erin Thorne and the Junkyard Dog himself Jerome Williams, former NY Knick and currently serving as the president of BIG3's youth reach program, Young3. The BIG3 brings out BIG NAMES. Hanging with a few! Rashad McCants, Chauncey Billups, LL Cool J, Smush Parker, Chauncey Billups, Spoon and Baron Davis and even the commissioner of the BIG3, Clyde Drexler.


What an awesome evening to sit courtside at the WNBA All-star game in Minneapolis Minnesota with Cynthia Cooper-Dyke far left, Taj McWilliams-Franklin close left (both former WNBA superstars) and LaChina Robinson (ESPN, Fox Sports 1 and FS South and more) on my right.


When the WNBA started, we were Rock Stars! Everyone felt the buzz as "WE GOT NEXT" swept the world of sports. Even celebrities were treating us like celebrities! It was so AMAZING and we felt that FINALLY, all of our years of hard work, could be seen right here in America. I am so grateful to be a part of WNBA history. Here's to my daughter and the future of women's basketball.


This photo was a Thanksgiving dinner give away. Each family received a turkey, and and ALL the trimmings to make Thanksgiving dinner at home. There was also a basketball clinic for the kids featuring myself, Jerome "Junkyard Dog" Williams, Teresa Weatherspoon & John Starks.


The Garden of Dreams Foundation is a non-profit organization that works with The Madison Square Garden Company and MSG Networks, Inc. to positively impact the lives of children facing obstacles. The Foundation works with 30 partner organizations throughout the tri-state area, including hospitals, wish organizations and community-based organizations, to reach children who are facing challenges such as homelessness, extreme poverty, illness and foster care. The holiday season is my favorite time of year and I always look forward to being a part of the Holiday Magic this foundation spreads. .


Madison Square Garden, will always be known as "The Worlds Most Famous Arena." It's held some of the most monumental events ever, in the sports and entertainment world. What most people might not know, is how MSG and it's employees, always come together volunteering time, money, and resources, for worthy causes.#HashtagLunchbag, was what we were doing in this photo.


This photo is of the 1997 Inaugural New York Liberty team. Looking at this photo always brings a smile to my face. We were all so proud and grateful, to be a part of this historic moment. The Liberty, was one of, if not the oldest team in the league. The majority of us players were seasoned European League veterans, who had already clocked anywhere from four, to my twelve years abroad. That to me, was what made us special. Every night, we played together and from our hearts. We also loved and really appreciated our fans!


On my birthday November 3rd 2016, I committed to logging an "I AM GRATEFUL" post on Facebook, for one year. It was "MY YEAR OF GRATITUDE " I wanted to share with the world. I listed five things I was grateful for each day, and those things ranged from A - Z. They were emotional, spiritual, common sense, food for thought, sharing, in your face truth, compassion, love, peace, encouraging, wake up people....everything. I was told by many what a blessing that post was and I agree. It opened me up to a deeper level of consciousness and taught me to really see, feel and hear. Often, I find myself acknowledging the beauty that is around us all day everyday,


The NBA is so awesome when it comes to community out reach. They understand the importance of making a difference in the lives of people and especially kids. Often, the NBA will team up with other powerful brands to create opportunities of a lifetime. This was one of those awesome events.

I sat down with Youth Media to give my advice to young women all over the world. #TEAMYOU (Click the video to watch)


Singing has always been a love of mine and I was a regular at a nightclub (Insomnia) in Italy. Here is a live performance with AffinitiNYC. (Click video to watch)


On December 6th, 2014, Arizona State University honored and hung my jersey in the rafters of the Wells Fargo arena in Tempe Arizona. I felt so proud to be there!


My beautiful, smart and very talented daughter A'riel and I. What a blessing she is and I am so grateful for her presence in my life.


Madison Square Garden is a living entity. There is something magical about playing and/or performing at the Garden that doesn't happen in any other arena. Having the opportunity to both play and sing at Madison Square Garden has been a true highlight and blessing. This photo is the newly renovated Stated of the Art "Madison Square Garden."


This was my "ONE MONTH REVEAL" on a new daytime TV series called The Revolution. It was an American health and lifestyle talk show with reality television components. The show transformed the lives of a few selected women by catering to our individual areas of need. The five areas were; fashion, fitness, physical health, mental health and personal space. I ended up losing a total of 67 pounds and was able to finally start dealing with transitioning my life into a new phase.


We were 3rd in the WCAA conference and posted a 25 – 7 record that season. It was the last regular season game of the year and USC was making a strong run for the AIAW Division 1 Championship. It was a close game and I had double trouble in the paint with the McGee twins (Paula defending me). As the lead fluctuated, I kept saying to myself “we can beat them.” That is exactly what happened, we won 53 – 51 and Louisiana Tech went on to win the AIAW Championship.


The last regular season home game is “Fan Appreciation Night.” In 1997, I sang the National Anthem for the first time at a Liberty game. The first time I ever sang the Anthem was at Madison Square Garden for a Knicks vs. Heat play-off game that same year (talk about scary). Singing the Anthem on Fan Appreciation night has become a New York Liberty tradition, and a complete honor!


The ceremonial tip of the first WNBA game June 21st, 1997. That day was like being on an emotional roller coaster. It was hard to stay focused on basketball because of the media, interviews and photos. We were also nervous because we knew the world would be watching live via NBC or at the great Western Forum in Los Angeles.


In October/November 2003 Spike Lee contacted me and ask if I would audition for a new movie he was making, “She Hate Me”. He told me what it was about and I said sure. I was so nervous because I knew I lacked acting skills but I went anyway. I auditioned, got the part and had an amazing experience working with Spike. To date, people ask me about that movie.


In November 2012 I happened to get stuck in Los Angeles during the Hurricane Sandy storm and remember watching TV in awe at the devastation. When the airports finally opened, I returned to NY and volunteered with the Madison Square Garden, Knicks family. We went out to various communities that were hit hard giving out clothing, coats, hats, diapers, socks, pajamas, gloves, and toiletries. These people had lost everything and yet they were hopeful – even though their home looked like this.
