Today's show was not as hot as last week but all the same it was still full of drama, all pun intended. Today's lesson ofcourse was to teach the models how to act, by showing them how not to act. Tyra's fall/ fainting spell was so obviously fake. As she needs to calm down with all that jumping around thinking she is some super star actress. Abeg.
WIth the theme being about drama, you know that had to play up Nnenna's issues with her boyfriend John. Spekaing of whom, that boy needs to be flogged. As in does he not know this is a competition. And why the heck is Nnenna allowing that 'winch' Jade to put her nose inside something that does not concern her. Who made her Dr. Phil? Stupid Amebo Oshi always having one excuse or the other and blaming other people. Why didn't Tyra kick her off? There should be no pity for her any more but they're probably just keeping her for drama effect, I imagine she'll be gone next week. The girl is majorly whack, that's why she hasn't been a model all this while. With an ego like that, she better form her own agency because no one will hire her. And is it just me or is she not beginning to look like one of those yellow-pepper house girls with that her dirty looking ankara that can kill all the fish in River Niger. All that's missing is a bucket of water. Plus me thinks Nnenna is getting awfully chummy with this Jade biatch of a girl. She'd better watch out.
So Furonda won the challenge and landed a 'role' on Veronica Mars. Ok UPN, like relaly, ya'll know you can do better than a one line secretary gig for a whole Tyra banks show. I mean get her a spot on Girlfriends or something.
They also got to hang out with Nick Cannon to do improvs like they do on his show Wild n' Out. It was so dry. But it was funny how Nnenna pulled out some Ras Kimono-Junior & Pretty Raps that didn't even go with the beat. Poor Girl, I am sure her naija friends are torturing her about her rhyming skills. Boyfriend and Jade adding drama aside, Nnenna's commercial was aight she got her lines down but it just lacked that hmph factor (Ms Jade again said she was boring). No particular person in my opinion did well but Furonda's improv lines were the best.
Next week's preview shows Brooke saying Nnenna is just a biatch. I wonder what that's about. I would hope Jade has not gotten into Nnenna's head and started influencing her. Anyway the show was not too hot so I don't have much to be colorful about.
Meanwhile it appears I have been relegated to weekly blogging. I am so busy during the day and just too tired when I get home that I just go to bed. I have been sleeping so much that I am now fat. I tried to do something fun this past weekend. Went down to Santa Barbara for a free 'play-play' photoshoot. My new hobby thanks to my discovery of model mayhem. Long story...will be blogging about that in due time. Bottom line I had fun and I am like where the heck was this website when I was 17. This headshot is from the shoot,MY HAIR GREW...YEE!!! I have to say I am having a reverse complexion complex. I WANT TO BE BLACK, I hate being so light skin. :)Can't wait to get on the beach and start tanning, paleness doesn't work for me at all. Oh is anybody watching Ocean and 8th on MTV? Love it!!!
It has also been raining here all week. I mean I thought 7 days rain was a phenomenon only in Nigeria. We have had 14 days of straight rain, landslides and all sorts of flooding, including an earth quake today. I wonder which 'Baba rainmaker' is causing all this havoc.
Some interesting items in the news this past week. I'll be brief
DUKE LACROSE TEAM RAPE: I am sure ya'll have heard about this investigation going on. Members of the Lacrose team at the prestigious preppy Duke University raped a black girl whose's a stripper attending the HBCU down the road, NC Central. Let me first say that I am upset that a young black woman attending University will stoop so low as to be a stripper. Then I upset with the fact that she returned to the house even after an initial exchange made her fellow stripper friends leave. Apparently the coach resigned today, going to show that this is not going away anytime soon. However, my beef is with the University and the people doing the investigation. As much as I hate bringing up the race issue, ya'll know if that was the UNC or NC State football or Basket Ball Team, ans this was a white girl were talking about, they would have bundled their black azzes to central prison. Guilty before proven innocent. That's the way it works for black people, but because here we have a bunch of rich white kids, it's a different case. They want to handle it with care. They are dragging their feet. DNA test results don't take that long to return. I wonder if they are cooking up a cover up. Anyways check out my old station www.abc11tv.com for the latest info.
KATIE COURIC: Ok I don't understand the hype about this woman. She's wack. Diane Sawyer in my opinion is so much better than her. But you go Katie, you've acheived what we all know would take a few more years for a 'sistuh' or a 'brother' to get. I mean let's face it, ABC didn't give Carole Simpson a chance because they felt America was not ready to see a black woman as an evening news anchor.
JILL CAROLL: Pretty damn good actress. This is the journalist who 'claims' she was kidnapped in Iraq. Gurl, you need to tell us whose payroll you are on because your story is too damn fishy.
MOTHER PARIS: I hear Paris Hilton has been picked to star in a movie as Mother Theresa because she is the closest looking to the late mother. I guess her 'praying mantis' look got her the role. This is either the worst insult they could possibly give this woman, or this could be Paris turning point to 'good' acting. She could end up surprising everybody.
CHARLES TAYLOR: Wow!!! I ever thought this moment would come but I am proud Nigeria turned him over. The guy was pretty dumb, tryin to pul that escape stunt, but he claims CID officials set him up.
FEMI FANI KAYODE: This is Obasanjo's mouth piece, and a very bad mouth has he. The guy can yab. Don't even attempt to cross him because he will wash you down. At first I was annoyed with him because I would expect better from someone like him. I mean if you are going to respond to issues, you should respond in a very classy manner and retort to inform. But not so for FFK. He will curse you, you father, your grand mother, your great grand father and your ancesters beyond. Just yesterday I read his response to Charles Taylor's claims about the CID in the LA Times. O'l boy said, 'that claim is a figment of his jaundiced imagination.' I bursted out laughing. Kai only in naija. Gotta love it man.
MY FAMILY: A handful of colorful characters. Funerals or not, tehre must be something dramatic that will make you laugh so hard that it would hurt. My peeps went to the village to lay my uncle to rest and I called to check in. Boy did my sister, Nnenne, have a mouthful to tell me. I wish I could divulge, but I can't, not just yet. Look out for it in my book which I will have to start creating time once again to continue writing. My year long writer's block had better unblock itself.
Ok so that's my week in one post. Laters peeps
