Unfit Boyfriends = Unfit Dads (It’s Not Rocket Science)

3 06 2010

My main concern during the first episode of vh1’s Dad Camp was that about half the women had been with their boyfriends for at least a year before they got pregnant. One couple had been together for four and a half years. Now my question is this, how can you be with someone for that long and as soon as you become pregnant you’re surprised by the father’s actions??

These men did not change overnight. After all this time, you had to have known that they were cheaters, that they were irresponsible, that they didn’t have jobs, or that they’re alcoholics or smokers… This was apparent BEFORE you got pregnant, yet you loved them and stayed with them regardless of this.

Now I’m not saying that it’s ok for the men to act this way, but if these women had condoned that behavior for this long, why stay and why not protect yourselves effectively?

Forget a Cocktail, Ray J Needs a Shot

9 02 2010

Is everyone else thinking what I’m thinking??  What the ****!  Everything started off in the expected vh1 reunion show normalcy… then out of nowhere here comes Cocktail (the winner of last season) strutting onto the stage. I was soooo not expecting that.  Cocktail started out nice enough, but then went into how Ray J was a dirty dog basically, claiming that he’s not a “one woman man”.

Here’s a little bit more of what went on backstage:

Berry and Ray talked backstage for much longer than what you saw on the reunion. At one point, it appeared that he was crying (she definitely was). Pretty hilariously, as Tanika attempted to get him back out onstage to finish the reunion, he back-talked her. “We need Ray to get to the bottom of this. We’ll have him when we get back!” is how she set up the eventually aborted final segment. “I ain’t comin!” yelled Ray. A bit later, she said, “Ray, come out!” “No!” he yelled back. “Now! You say you want an aggressive woman…” Tanika joked back. Finally, she said as a way to conclude, “I have a feeling it’s not over…” and Ray narrated from backstage, “It ain’t over! It’s never gonna be over!” The fact that he and Mz Berry came back out and could be seen embracing after most people had left the studio…

Watching all this unfold, I got a feeling that Cocktail cares a lot about Ray J and is either upset at the fact that he’s moved on or is upset at the fact that he played her (so she says).  Either way, the girl is upset and her tirade has very little to do with her concern for Mz Berry.  This was all a way for her to put him on blast to make herself feel better about their situation.  If Mz Berry wasn’t upset enough, I was upset for her!  That was HER moment and Cocktail Kanye’d her.  She basically took the mic and said, “Look, Mz Berry, Imma let you finish but…”

But nothing, take your a** back home and chill the hell out, please.  That was so declasse. I’m excited that Cocktail made the reunion much more entertaining but at the same time, I’m mad at how it ended.  There wasn’t enough time to end it properly.  😦  Well, if you’re as upset as I am and want to hear Mz Berry’s side, tune into TALKOFTHETOWN411 at midnight TONIGHT!





Giuliana & Bill… “Bellissimo”!

20 09 2009

Do I watch Giuliana & Bill for her humor, loving relationship, or her style?? Her style is so fierce, whether she’s on a construction site, the driving range, or in a cooking class. When I’m not taking note of her ensemble, or wondering where I can get her nail color or accessories, I’m laughing my butt off at all of the random comments (like “big ass front wedgie” lol) & situations (like trying to cook a homemade meal for her husband).

I just can’t get over how real and down to earth she is. She has this aura about her that’s so fun and easy going. And Bill is no bore himself. He seems like a really sweet and patient man so far. They compliment each other and balance each other out.

Giuliana is definitely on the right network. Her style is molto hott. I look forward to the rest of the season and hopefully (crossing my fingers) many more seasons to come. The pink and white apron, omg, makes me want to get in the kitchen and whip something up just so I can look good doing it! What accessory or attire am I going to fall in love with next Wednesday?

Giuliana & Bill… “Bellissimo”!
