I know y’all wanted me to recap this show but I’m not sure why y’all think it will be such a big deal. Do you think Iyanla will try to fix Amber Rose’s life? I long, long time ago when Iyanla first started to appear on Oprah I thought she was wise and added her book, In The Meantime to my already extensive self-help book section of my library. I still think that is a fantastic name for a book about dealing with those times in life that seem to be, well, “mean.” Now that I’m a lot older and a bit wiser, I’m not that jazzed by Iyanla anymore. Just got the picture above up. Is Amber going to wear shades the whole interview? I think that would be a first.
Amber is apparently going to wear sunglasses to whole show. Thus far Andy has not dared to mention it. Either he asked or was told the deal off camera, or he’s once again failing to ask the obvious question. Or most likely he is waiting for us to do it. Let me go Tweet.
Holy crap the bartender is Eddie Jackson who I have never heard of and apparently he is a former football player for the Panthers who is now a chef. My life has improved drastically for having laid eyes on him. If the world were to end tomorrow leaving behind only me Eddie and Banjo, I’d be really good with that. Sorry everyone else in the world. But look at him and you will understand.
They have a cute game called Fix My Wife. They have a quick montage which is funny. Then he asks Iyanla how she would react in certain relationship situation that housewives have had.
- If someone in the relationship was allegedly faking a serious illness? I’d pack.
- If one spouse was going to jail? That depends on the nature of their relationship.
- If the husband has an affair? It depends on the wife. I personally don’t play that.
- If the daughter doesn’t approve of her mother is dating? That is none of her business.
- If the children openly curse in front of their parents? Soap in the mouth. (RUN KJ RUN!)
Amber Rose plays Plead the Fifth
- Rank these Kardasian /Jenners from least…? Amber interrupts to plead the fifth before the question is even out.
- Amber posted on Instagram that every female artist she asked to attend her slutwalk wanted $30k-40K to appear. Name one. She doesn’t want to name names but, “It was like five of them.” I don’t know why I expected Amber to be well-spoken. But, um…noe. Then she jumps in to say it’s a non-profit organization. Um, I am not sure I believe that she registered her Slutwalk as a charity.
- As we know, Kayne West… I am not talking about Kanye.
Andy is pissed and says that Amber just had the worst Plead the Fifth ever. She didn’t answer a single question!
Questions for Iyanla
Do you follow up with the people you fix on the show? Iyanla says that there are only two she does not follow up with . They are DMX and Sheree because they were the only two that were unfixable on the show. Iyanla says she promised DMX that she wouldn’t and Sheree was not receptive. Amber says DMX is her favorite rapper and Iyanla says, DMX is not well. He’s just not well.
Would you try to work with Sheree again or do you believe she’s unfixable? Iyanla says she doesn’t believe she is unfixable but she doesn’t want to engage in the process again. You can tell Iyanla wants to get off the subject of Sheree as one of two shows that were unsuccessful in helping the person.
How many times during the 11 years you and Oprah weren’t talking did you almost call or write her a letter? Iyanla says she did write her letters and send her birthday cards. It wasn’t that they weren’t speaking at all, they just never talked about what happened.
How could you help Nene Leakes not be so defensive and take ownership for her wrongdoings? (I had to paraphrase the question because the caller rambled) Iyanla is all like, wait what? Is she asking me about Nene Leakes? I haven’t got a clue! I ain’t never had a conversation with Nene Leakes!
Andy asks if she knows about Amber’s slutwalk. Amber explains it. Iyanla says she understands the concept but she is from the generation where calling a woman a slut is not acceptable in any form. She says it will take women of her generations some time to be able to embrace the whole slutwalk concept. I’m thinking there is probably not enough time on earth remaining for that to happen.
Questions for Amber
What can you tell us about Blac Chyna and Future? (News today was that Blac Chyna got a large tattoo that says future on her hand today) Amber smiles and says “that’s BFF confidentiality.” Steam is starting to come from Andy’s head. He says, we’re going to take a break and try to find some stuff that Amber can talk about after the break.
After the break, Andy says “lots of people” want to see her without her sunglasses just for a second and she says “I’m drunk, sorry” Andy lets out a heavy and says, “okay she doesn’t want to do that” and I can tell that Amber may just be on the way to overthrowing Scott Baio as his least favorite guest.
Amber says, am I the worst guest on this show ever? Andy sternly quips back. “You’re in the running!”
What is one thing we can do to get a butt like yours? She says that’s really sweet…then, um, um, um I guess squats. I do a lot of squats. Wow she’s a fascinating creature!
Are you #TeamNikki or #TeamMiley ? I love them both. Girl Power! Miley’s mom managed her for a bit. She thinks the beef at the VMAs was real.
Andy plays a game that involves balancing things on Amber butt and Iyanla has to guess if it will. Neither Amber or Iyanla want to play the game but at least Amber stands up to put her giant ass in Andy’s general direction. They manage to get through three items and it was ridiculous.
This was the longest WWHL in the history of the world. The things I do for you people.
