"The Young and the Restless" was my mother's favorite soap opera. She watched it every.single.day and she and her girlfriends and my Aunts would constantly discuss it. I started watching it here and there, bits of pieces of episodes long enough to know who the characters were. In college, I learned that lots of people scheduled classes around times their favorite soap operas were on and well, I guess I started watching a bit more of my mommy's favorite show. I'd record it and watch while winding down for the night and get just as excited as she did. Well...probably not AS excited mind you...but it was something to do.
It has been years since I've thought of Victor and Nikki. Well, I take that back. I was watching an episode of "Gunsmoke" recently and Victor was playing a bad guy and I smiled that I didn't know his real name because he's always been Victor to me.
I was in the grocery store the other day and this magazine was up front and center at the checkout line. It seriously made me smile. Victor and Nikki are still going strong I see. LOL! That brings me JOY!
Did YOU ever watch Y&R? Any of you still watch any soap operas? Do you record them and binge watch or do you catch them daily?
Why Victor and Nikki can't keep it together?
Last night I was watching a marathon of "Modern Family." You know...the first season when it was crazy funny. Once the marathon went off, this show came on. I was unaware of it before last night. I watched 6 episodes. Robby joined me for 3.
I love Todd Chrisley. He is my new favorite White guy.
And I don't even get down with reality shows but baaaaaaaaaaaby...this dude's personality BRINGS.ME.JOY! Some of his sayings? Old Southern belle STRAIGHT.UP bitchy!
I get it. You want people to get used to seeing your body without clothes on going about everyday life. You want people to not blink twice if they see you naked. I GET IT. You seem to be in some semblance of nake-id-ity every episode. WE GET IT!
YOU'RE ALL FEMINISTA AND WHAT NOT! WE HEAR YOU ROAR GIRL!
HOWEVER...If you've worn a bikini all day long...swimming, dancing, cutting the fool, riding bikes, going to the grocery store, etc...and you then sleep in it and walk around in it the next day? You are nasty.
Everybody else has changed three/four times and you're still in the same bikini.
I would NEVER eat from Hannah.
AND WHEN YOU PULLED THAT GROCERY LIST OUT AND GAVE IT TO MARNIE TALKING ABOUT IT WAS IN YOUR BACK POCKET KNOWING YOU HAD A WEDGIE THE ENTIRE EPISODE AND DIDN'T HAVE ANY DAMN POCKETS????????????? NO NO NO NO NONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONO! MARNIE...GIRL...YOU JUST MIGHT BE NASTY TOO IN YOUR JCREW FIT!
I just CAN'T with her. Just...ew.
P.S. I love Shosh. That is all.
P.S.S. If Adam isn't going to be on the show can we get a head's up? Robby only watches for Adam. LOL!
When will Black women learn that reality television is not their friend? No matter how lovely a person they COULD be in real life...they're not considered entertainment worthy unless their bitch claws are out. You can't be sweet and nice and make an impact in reality television...you have to "come for people" to be celebrated.
Why is that okay with so many people? Why are so many people so entertained by seeing Black women be so damn nasty all the time? If you knew Black women like that in real life you'd stear clear of their azzes so why is the shit considered entertainment?
Just a vent that it seems folks I've always thought had good sense and were lovely people have to be painted with their bitch light on full blast in order for them to be reality tv worthy. I didn't watch the show but just watched some clips this morning after reading folks flipping a head gasket over it.
For the past year, once every couple of weeks or so, I have to listen to The Robinator cuss up a storm about how there is never anything on television and yet we pay a straight GRIP for all the channels of nothing.
Basically...it takes us about 30 minutes of channel surfing to even find something reasonably decent to watch and it's usually something on the Discovery Channel. Dude has really started to taking a liking to Survivor Man, Moonshiners and some show about being dropped off naked in the woods.
I've decided to not look too much into that in the even it means I'm going to have to leave him soon because he's thinking about being one of those crazy out back woods people.
I was watching an episode of "King of Queens" recently and Doug and Carrie had an argument. See...Doug was volunteering at the church to protect the Nativity scene from vandals and another husband was out there doing the same. The wife of the other husband noted it got colder and brought her husband a heavy coat and some hot soup. Doug was all like...um...yeah...well...my wife is probably on her way.
Yall know I don't play the race card cuz it's tacky, overused and seriously...it just isn't needed as much as folks try and whip it out.
I've been side-eyeing SNL for a minute now because of the lack of Black women. I mean...REALLY! And they know folks have been criticizing them for their lack of Black women too. And they announce six new people and not one of them a Black woman? Five are White men and one a White woman.
COME ON MAN!!!!!
WHAT THE FUG??????????????????
AM I THE ONLY PERSON WHO IS PUT OFF BY THIS? AAAAAAAARRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!
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?
I have had a lot of conversations about "Being Mary Jane" since it aired. Well...not about the actual movie per se (even though that's how the conversations started) but about how women saw themselves in the situations Mary Jane presented.
ONe of the main conversations was about the married woman part. I was having lunch with two married women and one single woman. The movie came up and the inevitable question was raised.
"What would you do if a woman told you she was sleeping with your husband and you knew she was telling the truth?"
One married woman slapped the table and crossed her leg while saying, "I ain't never leaving that man!" And I blinked. We all looked at her like...WHOA and the questions started pouring out:
So...apparently BET made B. Scott change out of whatever he was wearing and wouldn't ALLOW him to wear heels during his red carpet pre-show at the 2013 BET Awards.
B. Scott was hurt and insulted. He feels discriminated against. Video response: Beat
What say YOU? Why would they even offer him the gig if they were going to not allow him to do him? I mean...doesn't EVERYONE expect B. Scott to be in full makeup and heels? Do you feel like it's something they SHOULD do? Is it discrimination in YOUR opinion?
