Lisa Raye~What Chili Wants?

In Take 2: Film/TV Reviews on 15 April 2011 at 4:02 pm

Episode 1: My Intro to Lisa Raye

Episode 2: Take 2, Literally

        So, today I feel HORRIBLE! I think that death came and raped me last night and left me with all kinds of illnesses…lol. All curable, of course, but still illness just the same. My head hurts, ear is throbbing, TMJ on the brink of world domination…you name it, I’ve got it. So I went to work late and left early. I slept from 4:30pm until around 11:30pm……and I woke up so that I could blog about the Real McCoy. So y’all better appreciate this mess!

Take 2 in 5, 4, 3, 2, 2, 2, 2, #Lights,Camera,Diamond

        Okay… sooooo there is something to be said about how sick I am. I forgot to set my DVR and sooooo I have to wait until later today for it to come back on. I apologize for being late, y’all. Blame it on death and not my heart…lol.

        So, I have been sick all day, I slept, worked from home for a minute, went back to sleep and woke up in enough time to catch it at 3pm.

        Well, Well, Well. I need to find out more information about Divas Simply Singing event and The Diva Foundation founded by the all around diva herself, Sheryl Lee Ralph. This is the first time that I have ever heard of this event, and what a great way for me to do it. I have a great suggestion for the organization and I wonder if I can get it to her. But for those who have not watched this show yet,Divas Simply Singing is an event that raises funding, provides testing, and information for AIDS/HIV testing.

        And I get the whole entire scene with Lisa Raye crying when Sheryl talks about finding her blessing in her husband, Vicent. Sheryl said that people have to stop saying that there are no good men out there in the world and begin to understand that you just havent come across yours. And the whole” we can be Betty White” joke when Lisa Raye said that she isn’t getting any younger stung.  This week of all weeks is NOT the week that I needed to watch this particular episode. I understand why Lisa cried, I wanted to cry too. I feel like every time I lift my head up I am hearing another guy tell me that I am not what he is looking for. I have heard every reason in the book. So Lisa Raye, honey, when you want to cry again…call me and I’ll bring Ben & Jerry…lol. We’ll both find our guy one day while our ovaries are still functioning….at least mine.

        Now, the two of them heading over to the Shawn MacKenzi Agency to see a matchmaker made me cry laughing. So, does Jasmine Diaz, the matchmaker, ask everyone the same questions, or was that asked just for the show? But, I must disagree with Lisa about money being the top of my list. But again, she and I are two different people, so I can’t judge it…. I just don’t agree or understand it. I agree whole heartedly, the size of the penis does not matter to me as long as you have enough not to pee on your nuts but enough to work it. Too much penis looks nice, but it hurts and is useless, so men need to get that out of their minds. Only loose women, women who started off with huge penises, and damaged women actually like the gigantic penises. And I know they will tell me otherwise, but I want what works for me…and huge doesn’t work for me.  Wait… did Lisa just say that she wake Quincy up every day….naked? lmao! All that view wasted on a gay man. The world is so cruel…lol.

Now….WHAT the hell is Joe eXclusive?!!!! People actually let that man look like that? I mean, I am all for self-expression, but self-destruction… your friends need to produce an intervention!!!!  This blonde hair and nails on this highway tar black man is not working for me. An amber brown is the lightest that he should EVER go. But who am I to judge…again…I just dont get it.

Okay, so….Lisa Raye is at Meso Solutions to get her cupping done. She has all of these cups on here and they suck the fat cells up to the surface to erase the cellulite dimples that appear. And she even got a butt lift, naturally with this suction action. Hmmm….let me google how much this technique actually costs…..brb. Boo, hiss. I was able to find spas who do it, but no price was included. Moving on.

        I loved how Lisa Raye helped to raise money for The Diva Foundation. It was hilarious to watch her make people give money into the hat, auction style. I saw B. Scott through the curtain, the guy who played John Coffee, and many more. It makes me wonder can regular people come to this event as well. Hmmmm… Is that Omarosa?

       On to the date. WOW! Okay, so she is like me. I, too, hate roses. But can I get a guy who wants to send me a lilly…hell, a flower period.  J. Alexander Martin, the owner of FUBU is Lisa Raye’s blind date. And he has never been married, and doesn’t have any children running around and he is sitting there waiting for Lisa Raye. HOLD THE HORSES! J. Alexander said that he loves Lisa Raye because she is a sign of the women from his generation; she is ghetto and bourgsie (sp). But for Lisa said that it is easier for men to eat sushi because they eat pussy all the time….smdh. I swear, why can she get away with saying stuff like that?  And J.Alexander is the perfect gentleman from what I saw. I wish that there were more guys like him floating around in my area. And if there are….where can I find them? *Sigh* See, this show hit too close to home this week. LAWD!!! Give me something that I can judge and criticize…lol. I have more fun judging….lol.

       Okay, this was a great episode, something that I needed to see.  But it does remind me of What Chili Wants….lol

The Borgias~Stench of Borgia

In Take 2: Film/TV Reviews on 15 April 2011 at 12:06 am


Episode 1 & 2: The New Tudors?

        Primed and ready to write. Sitting here blogging and webcam chatting with my boy Steve (interesting to say the least since it is booty call hours….and that is where I shall leave that) But he has perked my interest to write more honestly about this episode as it comes on. Yes, I too am turning down cuddle time to blog. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME!!!!! My grind is starting to take a weird turn for the lonely! lol. This is the 3rd time I have done so. Oh well!

        Take 2 in 5, 4, 3, 2, 2, 2 Crime, Murder, Family, Amen

        Wow…. I love this show. I have to remember how to spell everyone’s name. Of course I know Juan… but Cesare… I must try to remember. Wow…did Rodrigo just say that he thought that Jesus was crucified by Romans…lol. Funny.. WAIT!!!!

        The prince of Naple’s voice is highly annoying. And this Cardinal snitching on Borgia is retarded. But what was the purpose of a room full of dead stuffed people? I am so confused. entertained, but confused. So much dramatics just to rid the stench of Borgia.  So were the dead his father’s advisories?

        It baffles me why the father would send the stupid son to war? What does the pope get out of keeping Cesare there? OH MY WORD!!! Why is the traitor helper dude sitting in the banquet hall full of dead people just staring at them? I am soooo creeped out by that. Yuck! So not sexy. I have to see if there is any truth to a banquet hall full of dead people as soon as I can figure out whose house this is supposed to be.

        I guess I will have to watch this long enough to figure out why Cesare doesn’t want to be a cardinal. And why are men giving men massages? Wouldnt they have done as the Greeks do and have the women massage them?And they had face masks back then? lol. funny.

        HOLD THE FUCK UP! Did they just kiss the Pope’s SHOE & his pinky ring? Get the hell up out of here! Oh hell nawl!!! You’d have to banish me from the damn church. I have a hard enough time grasping the concept of drinking after damn strangers out of the communion cup… and now I have to kiss a mofo’s shoes?!  Talk about faith! If it takes that for me to follow God, I’m switching to Allah!

         And damn!!!! The assassin got caught in the pool, but I was typing and didn’t see how. Damn! But I did catch a glimpse of the Cardinal’s package. He has more faith than a mustard seed….I likey! But the Assassin failed. Yet, how do you get your ass whooped under water? Ok…it came on again directly after so I got to see how the assassin turned around to get his weapon and the Cardinal caught him in the pool and recognized him by his scars.

        And I know that the last episode had hem trying to bring out the pope’s extramarital affairs, but he is just bold about it now.

      And the muslim from Constantinople (sp) is actually quite cute. Lovely.

        And wow, they want to marry off Lucrezia, but isn’t she only 14 years old? Ewww creepy!

         I think that she and  Jem ( the Muslim) should date.  Wow, it is cool to see Juan & Jem call each other brother. And to think there was a time where Christians and Muslims werent burning each others Holy Books. smdh.  And Juan is a horrible swordsman.

        WAIT!!!!! The Pope just told Cesare last episode that their papacy stops at murder and then he contemplates killing Jem for 400 thousand ducats? I cringe at the thought that a man of God would consider such a proposition. This really is testing my overall faith.  I mean, he didn’t call Jem a heathen until he was seen dancing with Lucrezia.  Shame…..and it begins;separation between Muslim and Christians.

        I swear, this incestual chemistry is creeping me out between Lucrezia and Cesare. But I guess that is what they did back then. Wasnt it Henry VIII’s family that was full of incest so badly that they had the mutated jaw?

         WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAH!!! Jem wants to become a Christian based on the fake Christianity that the House of Borgias has granted him in his stay. My heart just dropped out of my chest! And now this confession will give them a reason to kill him as long as he confesses his sins before God before he is killed!. Reminiscent of Hamlet’s father, right?

        And it baffles meat how the pope’s mistress is allowed to spend so much time and have such an influence on Lucrezia.

        Poor Jem! He is dying such a horrible and painfully slow death. I want to cry. Shame. And then the black man gets blamed for him being poisoned.  I am literally ready to yell at my television screen as if I can change history. Talk about great cinematic play. but it shames me to know that the vatican floors are paved with blood in such an unrighteous fashion.  I can’t watch this….. NO, JEEEEEEEM! I hate Juan’s stupid ass for smuggling Jem. Ah! if you knew how it makes me want to scream as a Christian right now you would understand my hatred stems from a raw place. I needed not watch this.

        And how DARE the pope pray for protection in the wake of such sins! Do Catholics really think that they can continuously sin and continuously ask for forgiveness? Is that how it works? AH!!!

        Next week looks enticing!!!! And I hear that the mother is not invited to the wedding? oooooooh! Yummy!

        I am falling in  love with this show and have no way of understanding how I actually have emotional reactions to each scene.  I’m confused. In short, it is soooo hard to watch and type for this show. It gets so good that I want to sit and watch, but then I will forget my immediate responses. Shame. What is a girl to do?
