2. Why didn't Julian leave with his wife and kids after she found out about the video? He just stayed behind? With THAT kind of crisis going on in his marriage? SERIOUSLY? AND WHY IN THE HELL HE SHOWING EVERYONE ELSE THE DAMN VIDEO BUT HASN'T TALKED TO HIS WIFE ABOUT IT?????????
3. When did they practice the dance routine? I can see Mia arranging to have matching costumes at the ready...but the dance routine? That took practice. When did they do that?
4. Can we stop with the dating White people jokes already? It's 2013.
5. Yall know the fertility clinic wouldn't have put them embryos in without being paid in full first right? Trust me on this one.
6. Who is Shelby's baby daddy? How'd she get on that show she was on?
7. They delivered a breech baby. In a Lexus SUV while speeding. Oh...and if they were in snail traffic one minute...how did they end up FLYING down a damn near empty interstate the next?
8. Shelby and Quenton being disrespectful getting busy when they did?
Maaaaaaan...this looks like it's going to be HYSTERICAL! LOL! I'm stealing myself for the weird looks now when I'm in line without kid one geeked for the movie to start. LOL! Oh...and I need that AWESOME song! Do you think your kids will be interested in this one?
There are lots of random movies that I adore. Like...I could watch them over and over again and generally do whenever I run into them on television. "Billy Elliot" is one of those movies. I ADORE that movie and it just makes me smile and smile and smile.
See...Billy didn't come from the sort of family who even knew what the ballet was. In fact...when questioned about why he loves ballet during his interview...he's honest when he tells them that he doesn't know how he even got interested in it in the first place.
Yall already know why I didn't care for old girl on Grey's. I'm sure I don't have to say it.
And yeah...once she did that bullshit about the Emmy...I was completely done with her.
After she won an Emmy in 2007, the next year she refused to submit herself, publicly bashing the writers for not giving her good enough material. And if that weren’t enough, she fought with Shonda over her contract, and once she was let out of it — she failed to show up for her last day of work!
Girl...AIN'T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT AND YOU KILLED DENNY SO GO SIT DOWN SOMEWHERE HELL!
So...even though she was all out in public being unprofessional and whatnot with her boss and colleagues, folks still kept giving her roles and big money to play those roles. I guess they thought it was Shonda and NOT little miss sunshine huh?
So now...she's back to television with a new drama coming on NBC. She's going to be a CIA agent with a complicated personal life. *YAWN*
I think I'm busy that night.
Then...The Hollywood Reporter put her on blast so tough...Shonda probably read it, folded it neatly, and put it to the side without nary a chuckle because a woman with class would not gloat over the final checkmate of the game she ended YEARS ago and kept it moving.
So what are YOUR thoughts? Do you think had Hollywood paid attention to how SKD treated Shonda/Grey's they wouldn't have lost so much money playing around with her? Do you think she's just getting a bad rap because she stands up for herself and has uncompromising standards as it relates to her work and career?
"Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men’s sins: keep thyself pure." 1 Timothy 5:22
Aiight...yall know I'm not big on organized religion. It's just...well...a lot and my experiences with the leaders within organized religion have been such that I decided I'm good without it. I get my church on tv style, read my own bible, use my own brain and experiences to decide what's what and have thoughtful and insightful conversations about religion with friends I trust in this area.
T.D. Jakes was one of the few "men of God" in organized religion that I respected and trusted. Sure...his lavish lifestyle makes me feel some kinda way knowing there are plenty poor parishioners in his church but hey...he makes it honest so spend it as he wishes right?
Tyler Perry makes movies. We all know this. And he's made a LOT of money doing so. He's an entertainer.
T.D. Jakes is a "man of God."
So when an ENTERTAINER "lays hands" on a "man of God" and the "man of God" starts talking in tongues (SIDE EYE SIDE EYE SIDE EYE) from the ENTERTAINER'S touch...JESUS TAKE THE WHEEL.
Yeah I said it.
Now we all know that if Tyler Perry gave me a million dollars and put his hand on me I'd be tongue twisted and couldn't speak correct english for a few minutes too. I'd be twitching and jumping and shouting too.
But I'm not a respected "man of God" who leads MANY in his flock.
I'm feeling some kinda way and know it's a private, personal thing I have to figure out how to justify the man I respected with the caricature of who he was on that stage as Tyler Perry "laid hands" on him like in a damn vaudeville show.
But it's probably just me.
What say YOU?
What did YOU think when you saw it and/or heard about it?
I saw Fruitvale Station a while ago and I hope you go see it this weekend. Even though you know what happens, you're going to hope, wish and pray it doesn't right up until the moment it does.
I read somewhere that they are hoping the film helps to heal our nation but I honestly don't see that. Nothing has changed since Oscar Grant's death so be prepared for the feeling of helplessness.
I will say that after I watched it, coupled with other things happening, I was driven to try and figure out a way to help the other Oscar Grant's of this world. It's a good movie and Michael B. Jordan is a star.
Did you go see it yet? I know someone who had a fascinating discussion with her son after the movie. He was puzzled as to why Superman cried after he had to kill the bad guy and she told him that it was because Superman never wants to kill. He only wants to help. He never uses his strengths and gifts to hurt. He's a good person.
Her son walked away with a major lesson that he probably wasn't even looking for at his age.
One of my favorite movies on EARTH is "Love and Basketball." I mean...it seriously doesn't get better than this movie for me. I watch it every.single.time I see it on and think to myself how awesome it is. Like...everything about it was good.
I met a stranger who reads the blog in an airport recently and we got to talking. She told me how much she enjoys the blog and I asked her a few questions about why she doesn't comment. She says that she never comments on blogs or websites she reads but if there was one she would comment on it would be mine because it's her favorite as far as real life goes.
Then she asked me why I didn't do much gossip cuz if I did that...she'd have her complete fix. LOL!
So I told her that I don't watch reality television shows so I don't really have much to say about them. Every now and then I'll say something based on the comments from my timeline and I go check out what they are talking about...but not much. She then said...too bad I didn't watch them because commentary from SIP regarding would probably be funny as hell!
Prolly so bruh...prolly so.
I was talking to The Robinator about it and he said hey...what if we could find someone to do the gossip stuff for you and well...that made perfect sense to me. Give the people what they want right?
So...yall know me...I like to take things a notch up so we decided to find out how to bring the good gossip to you in the classiest way possible so yeah...today...we introduce you to CelebTV!
Just click on the link up top and well done videos (by a third party) are there for you to check out at your leisure.
I wish I could stop grinning...but I can't. It's available in Blu-ray and DVD and there are lots of bonus DVD extras to include commentary, screening Q&A, audience reaction, interviews of some of our team members and even a deleted scene which we thought would be an alternate ending but the focus group audience hated it so we took it out. LOL!
Such an amazing journey and we've learned so, so, so much since "sisters." and our other short films on the Training Camp
I know I should say more but seriously...I can't. I'm just so flipping happy.
Please tell your family, framily and friends about it. Share our journey and let them know how we've been writing things down and making them happen and that we believe they can do the same.
Yall wanted options. We're trying to give you some. And you know good and well we're working hard to provide it to you.
Yes you heard correctly. We've inked a deal with Magnolia Pictures. THE Magnolia Pictures of Mr. Mark Cuban fame. We're so proud and humbled and we know this means we have to keep working even harder to be part of such an amazing, amazing team.
It started here for me. Writing stuff down. Making stuff happen. Working my butt off. Thanks to all of you guys for your continued love and support. You make it easy to do what we do.
I do not feel comfortable with him seeing this movie EVEN WITH PARENTAL GUIDANCE.
Why? The "relationships" Mr. Bond had with 4 women in the movie. Women who were all, seemingly, STRANGERS to him.
Like...Bond basically just GETS.IT.IN with random women he barely knows and frankly...I didn't even think about it until E was invited to go see the movie with a friend. Then I was like...um...I'll have to pass that by his mother because Robby and I saw it this morning and well...um....no. It's not 13 year old boy friendly.
IN MY OPINION!
I just feel like the Godson is at the age where he's really into girls and I'd rather he be more of the "courting" frame of mind than the RUNNING THROUGH IT frame of mind.
And now I'm annoyed.
Cuz I thought nothing of it as I was watching the movie.
So what does that say about me?
I told him mom what was going on and told her what we think of the relations with LACK OF RELATIONSHIP in the movie.
Her answer? Good call.
And now I feel like we need to go see all PG-13 movies BEFORE the kid does.
What's the last movie YOU felt wasn't appropriate for your child or a child you love even though the rating suggested it should be?
