Southeast Hip Hop Magazine: You are one of the current co-hosts of Blacktopia Round Table Talk Radio, could you tell us a little about the show?
Barbara the Cuntry Cleaning Lady: Blacktopia Round Table Talk Radio is a show produced by Some Guy Named Jay of Blacktopia, to show awareness/black empowerment, to inform and enlighten our culture and build one another one artist/poet/entrepreneur at a time.
Southeast Hip Hop Magazine: You've had a lot of amazing and interesting guests, who were some of your favorite guests and why?
Barbara the Cuntry Cleaning Lady: The best were the poly show [with Kevin Vernell and Teresa Sims], Tracy June [The REAL Orange is The New Black where she talks about her prison experience], and an open mic session we had. Raw may NOT be right but REAL!! It gets a lot of attention and that was how the shows I hosted got personal with the guests, NOT superficial.
Southeast Hip Hop Magazine: What has been some of your favorite show topics so far?
Barbara the Cuntry Cleaning Lady: All of them were informative and entertaining PLUS I think I set the stage for questions and BEING raw!!
Southeast Hip Hop Magazine: What has been some of your least favorite show topics?
Barbara the Cuntry Cleaning Lady: None I made each show work, because that's what was EXPECTED!!
Southeast Hip Hop Magazine: How would you describe your other co-hosts Some Guy Named Jay and Ms. Marie Jones?
Barbara the Cuntry Cleaning Lady: They are the stars, I'm the "cuntry" conscious.

Barbara the Cuntry Cleaning Lady: Real "cuntry" and raw, you either accept me or you don't either way I will shine!!
Southeast Hip Hop Magazine: How would you describe yourself in general?
Barbara the Cuntry Cleaning Lady: Confident, self sufficient, self reliant, go getter, entrepreneur, business woman, fighter, "cuntrified"!!
Southeast Hip Hop Magazine: A lot of new viewers may not know this, but after one of the original hosts Elizabeth the Great decided to stop doing the show, Some Guy Named Jay asked you and Tanisha J. Blanton to succeed her as the new co-hosts, then eventually Tanisha J. Blanton stepped down and her spot was filled by Ms. Marie Jones. How do you feel about that whole transition?
Barbara the Cuntry Cleaning Lady: This show belongs to the viewers!! Though they need to speak up more and because we are timed. I try to maximize the time slot!! It's spearheaded by Some Guy Named Jay, I've told him this in private. I saw greatness in him, and I've done what I can to help Jay promote that!! The best I can. (laughs) I'm a businesswoman and I go after clientele with my BEST ASSET my personality!!
Southeast Hip Hop Magazine: In what ways do you feel that the show has changed since you became the permanent co-host?
Barbara the Cuntry Cleaning Lady: Not bragging but for the better!! Like I said I set the standard for REALNESS and I know that!! The cuntry gull they thought didn't belong on the radio!! You don't want stagnancy or repetition in the sessions. I brought cuntry to the table at a whole new level!!
Southeast Hip Hop Magazine: What has been your worst experience on the show so far and how did you bounce back or learn from that experience?
Barbara the Cuntry Cleaning Lady: The hypocrisy and phony attitude vigilante behavior INSTEAD of teamwork!! It didn't hurt me I simply called them out, and SHOWED them WHO they were dealing with I haven't been in business for 17 years for nothing!!
Southeast Hip Hop Magazine: What would you like to see on Blacktopia Presents Round Table Talk Radio in the future?
Barbara the Cuntry Cleaning Lady: I hope to see the show soar with/without Bee. I'm going to leave a legacy: a "CUNTRY" LEGACY ayyyeeee whoooosa.
