Letâ€™s get right to it. Part 1 of THE moment that we have been waiting for all season went down on â€œI Boned A Baller,â€ I mean â€œBasketball Wives,â€ this week. The moment where Evelynâ€™s assistant bops Jennifer upside the head.
They have teased this episode to no end. I think I saw this teaser before I even saw a preview of the first episode. They made us feel like this was going to be a fight for the record books. I was thinking in my head â€œThe Bad Girls Clubâ€ better watch out because itâ€™s about to go down. Especially since the assistant came in the dinner like she was an undercover detective with those shades and terrible coffin wig.
I call it a coffin wig because the only thing itâ€™s good for is to bury someone in and should not be on any personâ€™s head that is alive and well. I was extremely hype for what was about to go down and was let down miserably.
This being an epic moment in reality show history is the farthest thing from the truth. Do they give out Razzie Awards for reality TV show fights? This fight would definitely win the award for THE lamest fight in reality TV show history.
This assistant heifer walked all the way around that Last Supper table just to tap Jennifer upside the head and hand wrestle her. The chicks held hands in the air and rocked back and forth. I felt conned. I felt used. I felt taken advantage of.
VH1 knows they were dead wrong for making it seem like World War III was about to go down and Iâ€™ve seen toddlers fight with more conviction than those 2 girls did. Iâ€™m hoping next week it gets turned up a notch when Evelyn runs across the table but Iâ€™m not holding my breath. It will be interesting since it didnâ€™t seem like there was anything in close parameters for her to throw and we know thatâ€™s all she does.
I know when it gets to the second part, Jennifer better keep Harlem out of her mouth. How do you go from living with someone in Harlem to talking crap about Harlem? I live in Harlem and I donâ€™t appreciate it.
Plus, Harlem is not cheap. Jennifer tried to make Harlem seem like itâ€™s the scum of the earth in NYC. I would have been mad too, especially when someone that still has keys to your house doesnâ€™t even speak to you. What part of the game is that? Gosh, I wish that assistant had really bopped her across the head because what she did she could have stayed on her side of the table for that. She just wasted a walk.
Besides the fight, the other highlight of this episode was finally getting a chance to see this new boyfriend Royce has been talking about all season. Iâ€™ll give it to Royce, she keeps a younging around and this one was a cutie. But there were several things I just canâ€™t deal with.
First of all, he lets Royce punk him. She really sat there and made that boy say he was in love with her over and over and over again until her heart was content. The boy was already uncomfortable being on national TV in Miami where itâ€™s always hot with a sweater vest on by the beach. Where they do that at? I was crying laughing. Who even still wears sweater vests in 2012?
Then just when I thought Royce has turned classy for this season, she leaves dinner to get naked. This obviously was not either one of their homes on this beach so why are you getting naked in public? She didnâ€™t even spend money on a good Victoriaâ€™s Secret bra, Royce took off that trench and presented that 5-7-9 bra and panty special. I was rolling. Then she had to say over and over again about how good he can eat and she wasnâ€™t talking about the food on his plate. Well, all right, Royce. That alone will keep any girl happy, sweater vest or not, so keep doing what it do boo.
Itâ€™s a sad day in reality TV because â€œLeave It To Niecyâ€ was only picked up for 8 episodes. Right when it was becoming my favorite show, TLC has taken it away from me. Iâ€™m hoping they will bring it back for another season since it seemed to get a lot of great feedback.
The final episodes had Niecyâ€™s son trying to be an actor and handing out his head shots like they were party flyers. Also, her middle child learns how to drive and has a birthday, and the only viable gifts in Niecyâ€™s mind was to get her some weave. Now, I know hair is expensive but my mother better not wrap me up some weave and make me open it up as a gift. That is an obligation as a mother to keep your daughterâ€™s hair done on the regular, not to present it to her on her birthday.
My favorite, lil Dia, the true star of the family, always has a master plan to get her way. She was obsessed with not getting braids and being able to wear a weave as well. At 12 years old. Iâ€™m glad Niecy shut that entire notion down. But Iâ€™m with Dia on making her wear braids all the time. This is not the Brandy â€œI Wanna Be Downâ€ era. Let Diaâ€™s hair follicles breathe. Putting in those braids back to back are going to tear up her edges. I know you saw those edges on Da Brat on June Ambroseâ€™s show last night, Niecy. You do not want your child to grow up with no edges. That is what excessive braiding does to your hair.
Thatâ€™s the only comment Iâ€™m going to make about Juneâ€™s show. I refuse to watch. In the opening credits she has pictures showing she styled Mariah Carey, Jay-Z, and Kanye West. Well, why are they not on this show, boo boo? Why could you only get D-list celebs like Da Brat, Jaleel White, etc. to come on national TV and validate your skills?
Every episode I watch I feel like my friends and I growing up made more magic with my Barbie dress up house than she does with these household names that we wish we could forget because they havenâ€™t done anything worth talking about in 10 plus years.
They all need Jesus so letâ€™s move on to â€œMary Mary.â€ This past weekâ€™s episode, the gloves come off between the group and their baby sister Goo who acts as their stylist. Goo was beyond out of line asking for a monthly retainer, especially since no one had seen these other clients she so-called has. Girl, you better keep the getting when the getting is good.
Goo really shows out and plays that baby sister card to the fullest. In turn Erica did pull that sister card when it came to getting clothes for her when she didnâ€™t work for them anymore. Itâ€™s natural for families to go through things like this especially when money is involved but as long as everything comes together in the end you know the disagreement is still rooted in love. I still think Goo needs an attitude adjustment though.
La La and her â€œFull Court Lifeâ€ led me to several revelations this week.
First La La is the queen of being friends with R&B chicks that used to be. We all know sheâ€™s friends with Kelly Rowland (who Iâ€™m not going to throw shade at because she finally figured it out and has been about her business lately), and Ciara and this week she had Christina Milian on.
Sidebar â€“ Milianâ€™s daughter looks exactly like her father The-Dream. Sheeesh. OK back to La Laâ€™s friends. Itâ€™s hilarious. Itâ€™s like, as soon as their career turns into a #nobodycarestweet they befriend La La. She probably hangs out with Brooke Valentine too. Sheâ€™ll probably be on the season finale. But I digress.
The second thing I observed is that La La looks really pretty when she wears her hair back. Like, I caught myself staring at her a couple times like, â€œWOW, now I see it.â€ For a while she just looked like a regular chick to me but with her hair pulled back in a ponytail, she is really pretty.
Third observation is that La La is a smart cookie and not going to play herself on national TV. Every time the going gets tough and she feels Melo is about to act up she cuts them cameras off. That is commendable. The whole world doesnâ€™t need to know everything about your lives. Especially when you arenâ€™t going to get anything out of Melo when the cameras are in his face anyway. Smart man. Melo really cracks me up. He shuts down every camera.
Last but not least on this weekâ€™s re-cap is Part 1 of the reunion of the â€œReal Housewives of Atlanta.â€ So much going on that I have to use bullet points.
Truth be told, the reunion was better then the entire season. Besides the trip to Africa, this season has been pretty forgettable. It would make me so extremely happy if with Nene leaving and Sheree rumored to being let go (because really how can you be a housewife when you have no house), that they would also get rid of Cynthia and Kim. Make Marlo a regular, keep Kandi and Phaedra, and get all new girls.
We all know Kandi isnâ€™t going anywhere anytime soon anyway since sheâ€™s dating and getting ready to move in with the production manager. Go, Kandi! I heard that Toya (Lilâ€™ Wayneâ€™s ex-wife) and singer Monica are being considered. I could definitely see them being thrown into the mix. Letâ€™s keep our fingers crossed.
FYI, you donâ€™t have to wait until Sunday for part 2 of this 3-part RHOA reunion. They are airing part 2 on Thursday so make sure you follow me on Twitter @EbtheCeleb, because you know I will be live tweeting the shenanigans. See you then!
