Giselle “The Wassi One” Braces for Hurricane Irma, Says She’s Staying Put in Miami.

Published

In the past few days, tragedy has struck the Leeward islands, Hurricane Irma- a catastrophic weather system that has pummeled islands like St. Maarten, Tortola, the British Virgin Islands and Barbuda, making its presence felt more than anything in years. Now, en route to South Florida, the system promises a direct hit to Miami and surrounding areas. Carnival ambassador, Giselle ‘The Wassi One’ Blanche told Ebuzztt she’s holding firm, praying and ensuring that all supplies required are in order.

Giselle says she left New York on Wednesday and made her way back to Miami to secure her Carnival work, home and family.

On Wednesday, Giselle returned to Miami from New York, having taken part in the West Indian Day Parade there. She said everyone told her she was crazy to return amid warnings of the impending hurricane and its possible effects, but she could not turn her back on her loved ones back at home in Miami. “This is my home, this is where I live and this is where everything that I love is. Miami carnival is around the corner too, so with that being said, I have to secure the work that we’ve already done, ensure all of that is taken care of,” she explained.

When we contacted her, Giselle had been in the middle of placing Hurricane shutters on her windows and removing objects that could be uprooted by the wind from outdoors, and bringing them indoors. “Everybody’s taking precautions. We’ve bought all the canned goods and water and stuff. Our prayers are up, precautions are being taken and I’m sure everybody, at this point are on their knees praying that we make it through this and the other two, we hope they go away, but if they come, we’re ready for them as well.”

Wassi told us her parents, son and loved ones are all in Miami.

The effects of Irma are expected to be felt on Sunday in Florida. Many areas have been served mandatory evacuation notice. Giselle reminded us that one of the worst hurricanes to have ever hit South Florida, Hurricane Andrew, marked its 25th anniversary recently. “I think that also has Floridians shaken up more than usual. My area has not been up for evacuation so I’ll be staying in my home,” she said. Wassi told us that she would prefer to be there, to see for herself, versus hearing about it. “The anxiety would kill me- the type of person that I am. I need to be in my home where all the people that I love are- my son, my parents, my significants. We’re not leaving, we’re gonna rock this out together,” she said.

The Washington Post this evening reported Federal Emergency Management Agency administrator, William ‘Brock’ Long as saying, “Irma is likely to make landfall in Florida as a dangerous major hurricane, and will bring life threatening wind impacts to much of the state, regardless of the exact track of the centre.”

Barbados’ Rihanna Does 30 Right! Makes Huge Business Move Like Only She Would!

Published

Rihanna’s 30th birthday celebration included a big business move that could see the Barbados born Beaty rack up that dough, even while partying like the rockstar she is. Yesterday, even while celebrating the commencement of her “dirty thirties”, the Fenty brand creator released a new limited edition Fenty Beauty product- the Trophy Wife Highlighter. The super pigmented, metallic gold cream-to-powder was an instant hit when the brand debuted back in September 2017, according to Elle.com.

Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty Trophy Wife highlighter is available in a limited edition online.

The “Work” singer was certainly celebrated yesterday. A number of top tier celebs offered birthday shouts to Rih, among them ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown and DJ Khaled. Rihanna was pretty modest in her approach to the big 30th celebration however, posting via Instagram, an incredible “thank you” to her mother for her role in her life.

“10958 days ago @monica_fenty became a mother for the first time to her only daughter!” the singer wrote. “Today is just as much your birthday as it is mine! I love you mom!”

She also made sure to show her appreciation for the hard work and sacrifices that go into being a mom, writing, “Thank you for carrying me, birthing me, raising me, supporting me, teaching me, and loving me unconditionally! The woman I am today is because of everything that you are!”

“I thank God for perfectly hand picking you to be my mother when He sent my spirit to you! You are the greatest! Thank you!” 

RIHANNA

The Fenty Beauty Killawatt: Dirty Thirty highlighter ($34) now comes in a gold box that reads “Dirty Thirty” and the product pan is engraved with “XXX.” Currently, it’s only available on Fenty Beauty’s website.
