Why Words, Wine and Women?

Hello to all, I’m Tara Johnson, the creator, executive producer and one of the host of Words, Wine, and Women™, an online women’s talk show dedicated to the real raw fun that happens when female friends meet a couple of glasses of wine. 

I have been talking about doing something like Words, Wine, and Women™ for quite some time. People always ask me why? Why embark on something like this?

It is a very simple answer. I miss women! Not in a romantic sense, I’m straight all day. I LUV LUV LUV men! (Hello somebody!) Nothing wrong with being a lesbian, I’m just not one. What I mean is I miss women in a sisterhood type of way.

Growing up, I remember women being the most important thing in my life. Boys were gross until middle school. I had sleepovers, movie dates and countless days walking around the mall (big ups to Georgia Square Mall in Athens, Georgia) with “my girls”.

As a pre-teen, I was a member of Del Teens (the youth group of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.®). All of these women (moms, professionals, singles) would take time out of their busy schedules to bring together young African-American females to engage in and appreciate the value of volunteer work, to learn the fundamentals and significance of cooperation, and most importantly, teach us the importance of being a woman. They empowered us. It was an unforgettable introduction to the very positive essence of sisterhood. These women, each different but with the common experience of being a woman, became my role models. They provided an example of what I could expect from my adult female relationships.

I saw my elder sister pledge Delta Sigma Theta and I even went on to pledge the Zeta Psi Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta at the University of Georgia. During college, I experienced the same thing that I observed as a child – women loving and supporting each other through everything. And not just with my line sisters, I mean period.

And then in adulthood as careers, reality television, ambition, insecurity, and maybe even some desperation set in; relationships between women today seem to be completely different.

Unfortunately, we live in a day and time where one woman throws an obscenity at another just as easily as she throws a table, a jab or a fake limb; but what I’m talking about goes beyond that.

I argue that men and women no longer like each other (a topic for another blog post) but I definitely don’t think women like each other. How many times have you heard a woman say or even said yourself, “Women are too much drama. I’d rather hang out (with men or) by myself.” We no longer truly and authentically celebrate each other. We smile and hug each other and then run back home and talk about each other.

I look at the younger generation with the cyber bullying, physical fights and social media hatred. I’m just confused as to what happened to the sisterhood I saw as a child.

I needed to create something that shows that different women (age, color, creed, social-economic status, education, background) CAN get together, have fun and enjoy a few glasses of wine…hell they can even disagree but it’s all good.

I wanted to bring those dinner/brunch/bar discussions most women have to real life.

This show is not a bunch of drunk women talking trash. This show is about the greatness, the love, the support, the empowerment, the challenge, the mystery, and the celebration of women! We hope you enjoy the ride as much as we do.

  1. I think for me it wouldnt mettar if I went to an HBCU or not, I think that I like the idea of a diverse group more than one that is historically Black. I appreciate them for all they accomplished and I know the tradition of it, but from what I’ve personally seen on my campus and heard from other campus a lot of undergraduates like to play into the stereotypes of the sorority/fraternity. I think its time to expand the definition of family to people of all ethnicities, being a part of a multicultural sorority/fraternity is a start.
