Read Your Contracts and Avoid the Groupies: My Advice for the Overseas Baller

This is by no means my Shonda Rhimes version of how to get away with bad behavior. But I have spent 8 years observing the good and bad of this lifestyle and I’ve given the side eye countless times. Many times I’ve wanted to offer my opinion because, well, I’m just that helpful (or possibly […]
