Empathy and Eyebrows an Interview with Danni Starr

Hey Cuties,

On Friday I had my most Carrie Bradshaw moment of all times. Sex and the City is one of my favorite movies, and I’ve seen every single episode and the movies a million times. Don’t keep sweaters in my oven like her but I am a writer. Carrie is a writer in love with fashion and love. She has her girl tribe and tramps around the city looking for inspiration on her next article. Duh… that totally sounds like me.

Mi and Danni

Backstory: I was first introduced to Danni Starr on Bridezilla in 2011. I then watched her on Marriage Boot-camp in about 2013/2014. From then I began to follow her on social media. I was thrilled to find out she moved to the DC area. Eventually, she and I would meet up at a DistrictMotherhued event.  We hit it off instantly as if we were old friends. From there we would continue to run into one another at events and chat and take selfies. When I heard she was coming out with a book I had to interview her.

Our Carrie Bradshaw moment took place at a cute coffee shop downtown in Washington, DC.  We sat at the bar along the window and took in the natural light from the sun. It was radiating all over our melanin as we chatted; we could chat all day.

  22. Kiwi

    You are an awesome interviewer Mimi. I actually followed Dani since her Bridezilla day. Dont ask me what compelled me to follow her even after she acted a fool on that show (I know its fakeish). I am actually shocked she is no longered married to them I used to be like #Goals but hey its life. She is a beautiful woman and I can tell she has matured and grown since being introduced on WETv. I am going to listen to the full interview (now) but happy she is an open book – LITERALLY with her new book. Many blessings Dani if you are reading. Hey Fellow Aquarian Im an empath too!

    • MimiCuteLips

      Thanks Kiwi, I wanted to ask the questions others would ask. We could have chatted for hours. It has been incredible watching her transition. The interview was so good.

  25. Tiffany H.

    I have never heard of Dani Star before. We often wonder why we go through certain things but I think we have to go through things in order to help others. This book will help other women with issues they have.

  26. Brytnie

    I’ve never heard of Danni but I will definitely say she is truly inspirational. I love listening or reading other authors process when writing a book and juggling other public figure jobs that require a lot of attention like working on social media and radio…WHAAA?? She’s amazing and I’m definitely going to do my homework on her now. Every field that she has worked in happen to be interest of mine and my exact passions! She was super transparent and down to earth during this interview!

  27. Olivia

    This was such a great interview! Thanks for sharing such a great book on an important subject. I love the hashtag #blackgirlmagic Danni is so beautiful! I will have to check her book out!
