Now for those who don’t know, Heather is a Houston born and Houston raised lady who, through her childhood, had the plans of being an actress and a model. However, lacking the height for modeling, her dreams of being a model were axed. This beauty then converted her acting skills into comedy and Is today loved for her hilarious performance and stunts on stage. She is also an artist with MTV. That said, shortly after taking on comedy and having her first show at Times Square in Houston, Texas, she got nicknamed the SBIC, which translates to sexiest bitch in comedy. This name stuck fast because, according to fans, she looks like the Trina or Nicki Minaj of comedy, and since then, she has been rising steadily through the levels of fame. In proof of that, recently, Heather launched her comedy album and recorded several other victories. Let’s take a look into that.

Cassandra Cooper

I am the founder/COO of the Ova Media Group, a multiformat platform specifically for women of color. From over-the-air channels, OTT, Mobile Apps, live streaming, Podcasts, and a music label. We broadcast as Ova TV over the air in 5 markets and on OTT platforms such as Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV. We can reach up to 250 million households domestically and abroad. We are already in parts of Africa, the Uk, and The South Pacific. The goal for me in creating this platform is to offer viewers an accurate and entertaining portrayal of the people we represent. We always want to be entertaining but make sure to stay away from stereotypes and anything offensive to the public. Influencing TV is a big responsibility as I have an opportunity to reshape a specific group of people’s narratives. I think about that often. I use my moral compass as a litmus test in terms of content. I ponder, is it entertaining? Is it educational? Is there a fair number of women and people of color, and does that story demand to be told? Every show will not be message-driven; sometimes, we are just dancing, others we cry, just like in real life.

There are literally 8 million stories waiting to be told; these stories transcend race, genre, and all deserve a voice. We, as creators, must stop being lazy and shy away from the status quo. Today’s audience is very in tune with their world and is looking for content that reflects that in some meaningful way. Netflix has shown us that in its original content.

Kimberly Jesicka

Running 5 iHeartRadio shows, owning TWO animated TV Networks, Doll owner of KIMILINA Fashion Doll. Pretty Little Things Curator, Kimberlicious Kouture makeup, and clothing line. The list goes on.
