Vibe Magazine is causing a MAJOR uproar today with the release of this new cover.
The cover features features Evelyn (Basketball Wives), Chrissy (Love & Hip Hop), Tamar Braxton (The Braxtons) & Kandi (Housewives of ATL) and labels them as role models.
Considering theres all bad girls on the cover, Kandi kinda sticks out like a sore thumb... She's a good girl... I'm wondering if they really wanted NeNe, but she wasn't available?
In the article, the writer is not condoning the bad behavior, yet merely stating that it exist and these are the women who are being looked up to.
Welcome to 2012... a era where bad behavior is admired and even rewarded and put on a pedestal.
Many ladies vented on Twitter about feeling disappointed, disgusted and offended that Vibe would label those women as role models (with the exception of Kandi).
“Vibe Magazine is bugging the hell out with this cover. Meet your next role models. Huh? If these are the role models of today, i need to move to Another planet. What kind of fuc*shit are we promoting to our children. I'm so disgusted right now.” (Tionna Smalls)

Dear VIBE magazine: really?? Those are my new "role models"?! I think not. And P.S. That is not Kandi's good side in the photo.— Jordanna (@Pink_Prez) May 22, 2012
