Jody Watley Responds To False Allegations and Slander in Powerful Essay

Jody Watley, never one to bite her tongue responds to false allegations and harassment in a powerful blog in response to former Shalamar colleague Howard Hewett and on air morning show personality Tom Joyner.

Watley continues to be reluctant to be drawn into drama manufactured by others, but had to speak out to this.

The line was drawn with the latest round of false allegations designed to undermine her legal trademark rights and success with launching the new Shalamar, as well attempts to damage her reputation. In a poignant essay Watley recalls being bullied as a child, and recalls how she was raised to have self-worth and value. She talks about misuse of her likeness and potential damages as a result a catalyst which led her to look deeper into the trademark before applying to the USPTO under legal advisement. Nothing illegal whatsoever, more like sour grapes from others.

It was a trip to remember for Nate, Jody and Rosero. Blues Alley was celebrating 50 years as one of America's longstanding first class music venues. It was a bit of a first to have the pop, disco, r&b dance experience as the fans and staff alike got in the groove. This trip also saw the group get together to take in a movie together exemplifying their natural camaraderie,

Here are a couple of recaps from those in attendance pulled from the Official Shalamar Facebook Page:

""Shalamar takes the Blues Alley to Church" The number "Second Time Around" concludes and the music goes mellow, the ever so reflective Watley says ".....was written when I was a girl it meant something then and now it means something else.. the audience knew it was none other than "Full of Fire" stripped down for good measure. ‪#‎Applause‬. Always communicating with the band, Nate and Rosero, Jody finishes the first verse and asks Nate to sing it on! Rosero brings something new to the group almost in the vein of Barry White, more on that later. Jody asks him to "Talk" about love, everyone listens...Watley then asks the audience to reflect on the things going in this crazy world and if they are happy about being in the present to shout it out, of course we all do what Watley wants..lol! Then the audience is asked to sing the refrain (Its all about love..) acapella...goosebumps... If that was the only song they performed then it would be alright because the song had such a whole new powerful meaning in that moment, "Its all about love..." ‪#‎BurnItUp‬."  - Dotun Illuyomade

"Thanks kindly for the great performance last night. The new Shalamar brings energy to the stage with the one and only Jody Watley.
We saw her in a small intimate venue called Rams Head On Stage in Annapolis, MD, which was nice because it allowed for her to come off the stage and be up front and personal with her fans.
The two cats sang and danced their hearts out; what a good combination.
We are sorry the flowers didn't get delivered prior to the show and I'm glad Ms. Watley was close enough to me to ask or else we would not have known. Therefore, right after the show we sought out her flowers and saw to it that she received them.
If you get an op t see this show take it. Thanks kindly for taking me and my husband back to the good ole days but with brininging us current with your new music which is fantastic.
Much success to Jody Watley and Shalamar!!
Peace and love until we see you next time, "  -- Cliff and Juanita Cage Lewis
