So while I was doing some recapping Tuesday night and trying to sneak in watching The People v OJ Simpson, B. Scott, owner of entertainment site, LoveBScott.com, was on the phone with Nene Leakes, catching her for an exclusive interview fresh off her latest meltdown.
Be sure to check out the full interview at LoveBScott.com because is loaded with tea. I don’t want to step on anyone’s exclusive so I’m just going go give you a tiny taste and we can chat amongst ourselves after you check it out.
On rumors she’s a diva on the ‘Fashion Police’ set: “‘Fashion Police’ has really disturbed me. For people who know me, I’m a worker bee. I work my ass off. I really enjoy working. I’m not one of those people who’s lazy. I’m a go-getter. I’m a hard worker. I’m not one of those girls looking for a man to take care of me. I enjoy having my own coins. I enjoy being independent. To have someone consistently putting out a bad report about me, I feel like it’s coming from someone on the inside — and I’m sad about that.
This is a point that I can agree with Nene on. She is a hustler. She has a very strong work ethic. Unlike a lot of housewives she fought to stay on Dancing With The Stars which is the most physically demanding celebrity reality show there is. She also did two grueling winter break stints on Broadway and we never heard a thing about her professionalism there that I recall. There was the RHOA scene with the beleaguered costume designer, but I’m sure he has worked with plenty of different types of personalities. But even as I was giving kudos to Nene for her first Broadway role, she was trashing every single person on RHOA as well as Sherri Shepard who go the same role as she did. Sure she shows up to do the work, but she belittles everyone around her.
I do think she shows up to Fashion Police serious about her job. The problem is her social skills suck. If she ever had a shred of humility, it disintegrated as soon as she felt like she had won something by being the sole survivor of the originals on RHOA. She seems constantly worried that she will be outted as an imposter and hugely over exaggerates, and outright lies about things like her financial situation and her perceived “status” in Hollywood. She’s a big fish in “black reality.” Make no mistake that Bravo and VH1 have gone to great lengths to segregate the housewives franchises and reality in general for exploitative reasons. When this sentiment is expressed to Andy Cohen he makes it seem as though there is not a single black woman in all of NYC, LA, or Orange County suitable and willing to do the show. Apparently there are no white people in Atlanta or the Potomac either. Don’t even get me started on Potomac.
So Sheree Whitfield was on WWHL last night with Sherri Shepherd and apparently nothing happened. I was so exhausted from doing normal people things yesterday that I decided to recap today. It was on when I fell asleep and I don’t remember a single interesting thing happening. But since some of you don’t have access to WWHL I will give you a brief rundown.
We start with Andy complimenting Sheree’s “hair” and mentioning Sherri’s wig line. Sherri says she might do a wig like that and call it the “Sheree.” It’s about time Sheree bought some decent hair. So much better than her usual bagel head.
Sheree spent NYE at Kandi’s house. She says they stayed up all night playing games. I shudder to think about the type of Kandi Koated Knights games that go on in that house on NYE. Andy asks if Kandi’s new boy child, Ace, has a big head. Sheree doesn’t get the joke.
They show a clip of Real Housewives of the Potomac which Ben C will be recapping for you starting next week! Continue reading
Because I really didn’t pay that much attention to the video of it here. I mean I saw fugly shorts? Pants? Whatever they are but I didn’t realize all that was going on with her clothing that was covering her top half, which I also have no words for.
Then someone informs that she tweeted, “Just sat down with a bunch of mean girls turning up their noses, looking u up & down as if u don’t belong,” (note, I think she means to say ‘me’, where she types ‘u’.) Then she deleted it.
I’m pretty sure people were looking her up and down trying to understand what she was wearing. Are those track pants pulled up to the knee? That would explain why the crotch of the lower garment is…. um.. how it is I suppose. But why is she wearing strappy high heels with work out clothes? Is that top made out of like trash bags to help you sweat when you’re on the treadmill? Has she cut off one of her manbeaters to expose her belly button on a national morning talk show for a reason? Or does the top garment come like that? Seriously, I don’t blame any talk show host for looking her up and down in that. It certainly doesn’t belong on a ladies morning show unless you are maybe going to do a pilates lesson. And then, the heels? It’s all mind boggling. Continue reading
I have the crud and flee asleep waiting for them to get to her segment. I’ve got some sort of sinus drainage that burns like FIRE. Head cold. Sneezing, Coughing. Blechy feeling. And all I want to do is sleep. I see nothing here was worth waking up for. Continue reading
Whoopi Goldberg was doing a stand-up show in Canada at the Casino New Brunswick in Moncton when her tour bus burst into flames according to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
Towards the end of Whoopi’s performance, smoke was smelled in the theater of the casino where Whoopi was performing. The venue was evacuated without incident. There is no word if anyone was on the bus at the time it went up in a huge fireball. Let’s hope is was empty. Continue reading
This is a topic that I have wanted to talk about for a couple of days now. It’s controversial and I am of the minority opinion. It has to do with the Miss America Pageant, The View, Miss Colorado, Joy Behar, Michelle Collins and some stupid advertisers.
Let’s start with pageants. I’m from Georgia. I’ve been in pageants, I’ve judged pageants, I love pageants. Talent competitions in the Miss America pipeline of pageants have a talent competition. This usually involves some sort of musical talent. If you are hard up, you could twirl a baton, or tap dance or read a dramatic monologue. A monologue from a published work. Or maybe a comedic monologue you wrote. You don’t throw on some scrubs and ramble on about your favorite Alzheimer’s patient. That is not a talent. That’s just admitting you have no talent. What the hell did this woman do to win her state? Did she yammer on about a tomato garden? Seriously.
This whole debacle also detracted from the fact that she was the queen of stupid interview answers this year. This brilliant nurse was asked who she thinks should be on the $10 bill and her answer was Ellen DeGeneres. She’s a joke and I think she still came in third. Continue reading
