WORLDWIDE EXCLUSIVE: The Hosts of Former Literary Living Show, Joe James & Heather Covington Are Launching Their Debut Novels at the Same Time: Founder Addresses Rumors of Rival Feud Between the Authors of Tekila Nika & Soul Baby

DisilgoldSOUL USA- (October 23, 2007)- Heather says there was never a feud between Producer, Actor & Director Joe James and Heather Covington on air 3 times a week on the Literary Living Tv Show featured on the former Black Family Channel Network. “Whoever reported that erroneous lie is the same person who tried to evoke competition between Rosette M. Union and Heather Covington with a deceitful comment on Publisher’s Weekly Website in response to an article by Calvin Reid about the debut of the show.

The show was responsible for the network going up in 2 million viewers according to Neilson ratings bringing the network to 17 million viewers. Literary Living became a favorite, but folks felt that Rosette, producer of the show, executively produced by Tony Rose ( was pampering the co-host which is true. I needed a carry all bag, and as soon as I stopped using it, Producer Rosette M. Union asked for the bag to give to Joe James. I didn’t think anything of it, but I think Spaceman Patterson began joking around and spread the rumor when Rosette would do Joe James make-up and forgot about me. However, she made up for it by getting me a top make-up artist. People make mistakes. She probably didn’t realize she was showing favoritism. I mean here I was trying to get an interview with the Knicks team on the floor before the game and she abruptly wanted me to go to the entrance to get Joe because he might be lost! Yeah right! The print ad model for Mercedes Benz has got to know how to get around in Madison Square Garden.  (Giggles) I was not mad when folks stopped to ask his autograph. We all were trying to relax at Suite (–) which is where the celebs hang post Madison Square Garden games and thanks to NBA spokesperson Cal Ramsey getting  carte blanche access for helping out the winners of  his charity efforts with the youth  who get to meet Knicks players when they do well in school. And I kid you not, Rosette said she wanted to make sure Joe James was hydrated and needed to get him a beverage, but I now realize that Rosette is like a mother to us all, but Spaceman who is a top musician and editor of the show and enjoyed beating us all up and retaking sets may be the culprit. I had to get up at 2 am in the morning to meet the cast to do a voice over for a take. He was like Editor Dearest and Rosette was like Producer Dearest that day, but the show got done and was a success. I am sure these two prestigious people did not start this rumor. However, it could have been that braniac kid of Spaceman who is the next Denzel Washington. He took my posters I got from the Hip Hop Awards and never gave them back. I bet it was him. I called the Spaceman residence to get an official understanding and haven’t received a response about it, but he then calls back like nothing is wrong., so there must be something I uncovered, but I can’t say anything because his wife owns the best beauty product line sitting in Hueman’s Bookstore and I need some more free samples. Aw shucks! It’s like blackmail and the rumors are still continuing! Well anyway, Here’s proof that Joe and I are not feuding. I am on his cover and he is on my cover. There! As far as Rosette M. Union, she is working on a movie and Spaceman is the top musician wanted by recording artists.” -LOL
