Nna na wa o! This America's Top Model has entered joromi stage sha. This episode was too freaking hilarious I was cracking up badly. I don't know why some people just don't like to mind their business. If they are so concerned about Nnenna's boyfriend, they shoud go and marry the boy now.
Let me start from the beginning. So they began the show by talking about the 'John-Nnenna-Palava' with everybody chiming in as advisers and soothsayers on how Nnenna's focus will be lost because of John. Then they went to some fake go-see with an actress who was really mean and cut throat. Kai, she really messed with some people's self esteem. How about she said Nnenna looked like a 'woman-but-man' aka transvestite, and that her stomach was big. As in I am sure Nnenna wanted to back hand the woman sharp sharp. The look on her face could tell it all. It was funny the way Nnenna was like 'I don't think my stomach is not that big' . She had to calm herself down. But the woman yapped all of them badly. Only Jade took it well and laughed about it and used it positively. Only a Biatch can take out another Biatch for real. So Jade won and she had to pick a friend, Nnenna of course, and they got a surprise. Err go the John-in-the-box story.
My first issue is with Tyra who felt she was doing Nnenna a favor by bringing John to the house. Missisu, na who send you message or are you DHL? Then my second issue is with Nnenna; let me just send this warning on behalf of some of my naija sistuhs whose contingency plan you have just jeopardized. Babes, we know you have made it and will have all sorts of men lining up at your 'door-mot' after this show is done. But please, biko, maka chineke, don't be burning cable for the rest of us that don't know what tomorrow holds. My friend and I are concerned for John's kind and ask that you please stop treating him like a 'boy-boy'. If this continues, all the white men will be stigmatized into thinking that's how Nigerian girls treat their men. They'll begin to fear us, stop chasing us and flee at any of our advances. You have also put our sisters who are in such relationships in danger of losing control because their boy-boy bobos would have open eye. Abeg consider awon ajebota babes now.
But na wa o. John must be suffering from the after effect of 'Akpu Power,' because the bros is whipped. Talking about I'll do any thing for you Nnenna. I was really not expecting him in that 'carton' (if na naija boy, he for enter?) and neither was Nnenna who was hoping to see one of her sisters. Did you see how Nnenna's face fell and how she rolled her eyes when she saw John. Oh My Gawd!!! She was so irritated and was faking the smile and laughter the whole time. I don't blame her at all. His behavior is highly embarrassing. May be it's just me an dthe Nigerian romance syndrome that highly lacks that kind of expression.
Anyways after all that 'Ah-Johny-Boy' left. Then they had the-main-the-main photo shoot where the were all supposed to be dolls. Hmh Hmh...can somebody show me who the idiot stylist or where all the ideas and characters for the models are coming form, because somebody is lacking seriously. If it is Tyra, I am highly offended by what they are putting Nnenna through. Some how I feel they are using her africaness for laughs just to see what the outcome will be. I mean of all the 'baby-dolls' in the world that I have seen, and trust me I have seen a lot because I didn't stop playing with and buying dolls till I was 16. I was one of those that used 'Home Economic Projects' as an excuse to buy dolls and make doll dresses. In fact in one of my college drama class projects on building a set, I went and bought some dolls and remade a scene from Midsummer Nights Dream. Why in the world did they pick an obviously 'white-curly-haired' doll for Nnenna. This is the second time they have come with that BS, the first being the so-called Frog Princess that looked like 'Willie Willie'. I mean they could have picked something else, even a Bratz doll or Golliwog. Heck we have a freaking Patti Boulaye looking Nigerian Barbie that they could have picked.
In there somewhere Joanie spent long hours at the dentist fixing her teeth. Poor girl was in pain the whole time and still nailed her pictures. So did Danielle, who refused to close her gap. Is it just me or can'tTyra make up her mind. One day she wants to change the industry and show that beuaty comes in different pacages, another day she is basically just perpetrating the negative side of this business which does not accept all as equally beautiful. I personally like Danielle's gap and don't see what is so ugly about it that they want to close it up.
These pictures from last weeks photo shoot were also on point. It is supposed to be a Payless shoe ad but I guess the UPN webmaster decided to amputate the picture. I am really digging that berry lipstick they used on her. In fact I went and bought the L'Oreal HIP version of that color. It is the one that Oluchi is wearing in the look-book. Look for it at your local drug store.
This is one of my favorite head shots of her so far. Not to sound funny but something about this picture evokes an image of Super Eagles Supporters Club at a football match. It is the 'Naija Green' and the 'Area-Boy' looking dude with white face. That his T-shirt and Face cap look like matching brocade fila and danshiki like you would see at soccer games.
