Tonight, after watching a quite ridiculously edited episode of Big Brother and before tonight’s episode ever of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, I found myself flipping around for something good to watch. I happened upon the Oprah interview with Rihanna. I was about ten minutes late, which it seems as though was spent on touching dead grandmother stories. Let’s see if there is anything interesting enough about to happen to make me publish this blog.
This is my first time watching Rihanna speak on TV. I wasn’t expecting a particularly high level of intelligence, but she seems extremely immature. I don’t mean that harshly. She literally seems like a 13-year-old in every sense of the word. It’s amazing to me that with all that she has been through she still has this innocent naiveté about her.
Meanwhile, I got new cable boxes today. They worked great when the guy was here and for the last couple hours I have had my signal drop several times until finally there was none. Now I am trying that reset the box strategy they recommend. Don’t you hate that? /grrrr
The reset didn’t work on the new TV but the bedroom TV has some intermittent connectivity. Rihanna is talking about reconciling with her father. I read something just today about her father calling her fat. She’s actually in Japan with her father now. Why is he living in Japan? I dunno. Anyway, I heard her tell Oprah that she had forgiven Chris Brown and how that doesn’t make her like other victims of domestic violence. But I’ve yet to hear the answer to the question, “Is Chris Brown one of your true loves?” or however inanely Oprah worded the question. It looks like I missed it, because Rihanna is now giving her mother a house and there are four minutes left in the show. So tell me, did I miss anything important? If my fancy new TV every gets along with the new cable box should I watch the interview again? What did O say about the interview before she started? Was there the expected line about how deep and pure Rihanna is and how she is nothing like the nymph she is perceived to be?
Whut I miss? Oh Time for RHONJ and it sounds like the TV is back! Cross your fingers!
