Episode 7 : When the Praise Go Up

See, I am getting better… sitting here two-strand twisting my hair, but this post will go up on time if it kills me! So, What is Lisa Raye up to this week?

Take 2 in 5, 4, 3, 2, 2, 2, 2, #ALLWHITEDiamonds

Okay, Lisa Raye said that “celebrity” is overrated. She also said that they have the same problems as the normal person. Ummmm… I don’t know what it feels like to go purchase a pair of Louboutin shoes and to have my black card declined. Hell, I wouldn’t even get cleared for a black card yet alone to be bold enough to try to purchase some Louboutin.

LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The comedian that sang to a vagina cracked me up!

Ummmm wait, did Lisa Raye just say that she cant do jury duty? Umm… excuse me, but regular people have to do jury duty.  And pardon me, but I think that this outfit that Lisa Raye has on when Kai says that she is thinking of getting a breast reduction is the same one she had on when she was double-dutching in stilettos 4 episodes ago. If it is, then they need to do better editing. If not, then celebrities do repeat outfits….lol

WOWZERS!!! The camera men were allowed to be in the bathroom when she lifted her bra to let her mother feel how heavy her breasts were. But damn… I know exactly how Kai feels. I want a breast reduction too. Lose weight first, then breast reduction….okay back to Kai…lol Wait! They said that they still have scars?!!! Ummm…second thought. But that is a cute bra that she is wearing though.

I personally think that Kai is beautiful the way that she is…. But I understand that it is all about what makes YOU feel better about yourself. Okay, soooo can I be a model with L.A. Models ? I mean, I am just asking because they are taking Kai as a plus size model.

Okay, Joe eXclusive is back? He scares me.  Is that CHIN!!! Oh, my bad, Natalie Nunn…lol. Wait, and Tanisha… is this a Bad Girl’s Club reunion or something? Is Fresh Pain a club? Or what? Well, whatever it is…. It is janky!I mean the set up was crowded where the models came from and I was not impressed. But… it is what it is.

Oh snap! I thought that Lisa Raye was going to all Caesar, the Dog Whisperer, but noooo she calls Patrice Ryan, the pet psychic. LMAO!! Lisa Raye said, “Damn, who knew that Diamond has so much to day”….lmao!

That’s it?! *sigh*

Next week: Ummm black folks in the woods?!!!! This has comedy written all over it. And I think thatQuincyis going to stop being Lisa Raye’s personal assistant. Sad!

Take 2 in 5, 4, 3, 2, 2, 2, 2, #CrimeMurderFamilyAmen !

LMAO!!! King Charles called Cardinal Rovere a clown. Well put!

I must say, it humors me to see that both the French King and Cardinal Rovere are being played by the 15 year-old Lucrzia….lol. Never underestimate a woman at any age! lol DAYUM!!!! The pope in the friar’s robe tripped up the King of France too.  Good call!

And the way that Cesare snuck up on Lucrezia…. he better be happy that they are in a time before guns… because he would have been shot if he snuck up behind me like that. lol

The way that Lucrezia fainted made me laugh a little. I mean we saw it coming. I called it! Sforza, you are NOT the father…lol. Where is Maury’s great-great x infinity grandfather…lol?

Sneaky, sneaky, sneaky!!! I think that the Pope is looking for this “precedent” for the cardinals that left the vatican to prove a point and his control. Shame, but I like it!

Ursela Bonadair (sp), now Sister Martha, is going to hide out Lucrezia until the baby is born. Soooooo, they were hiding pregnant women back then too? I thought that was something they started in the 50s. lol.

DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYUM!!!! Wow! The French King just straight hijacked Cardinal Cesare as a legget(sp). Hmmmm. Yeh, I smell a set up!

Okay, you can’t convince me that the Pope isn’t a pimp the way that he is straight out Holy Pimp Slapping these cardinals for leaving the vatican under threat of invasion from the French Army. Vice Cardinal Sforza just dropped a ton of his private land over to the Pope….lmao! He pimp hand is strong! I wonder how does it feel to be hoe slapped by the man of God?

And Cardinal Rovere…. this Christian ninja right here….lol. He is brave as hell.

Yes, Cesare, you are a hostage of the French Army…lol…! BUT DAYYYYYYYYYYYYYUM!!!! Did you and Micheletto just kil the two French guards that were suppose to protect you? GANGSTA BORGIA!! lmao!!! I mean Micheletto killed old doo with a cheese cutter….lol.

OH SNAP!!! Is Micheletto about to kill Giovanni Sforza?!!!! Damn. I suggest that no one mess with Lucezia…lol.  If all brothers were so eternally protective. Where are they taking him? I mean, they had old dude in a potato sack. lmao!

LMAO!!!! Lucrezia just said that her husband Sforza is impotent. And then the Vatican lawyer suggested that he publicly prove his potency. lol… hilarious!!! Sforza looks pissed!!! lol.

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaait! How pregnant must Lucrezia be to already be showing? The time laps is confusing. And these two ugly fugly looking hooker are enough to make me never be turned on again. And I mean, really…….would they demonstrate sex IN the vatican in FRONT of the Pope and the college of Cardinals? LMAO!!!! Yeh, they pimped you , boo!!! lmao! I wish getting an annulment were still this easy! And then the news travels fast and the court jesters outside cracked me up. Shame!

So ladies, you should not worry. Lucrezia was a teenage pregnancy as well! lmao! Statistics start early in the Christian faith…lol. And she had a boy!!!! Awww how sweet. Lucrezia is a single mother…lol.

Dang!!! So plague kill the people of Naples, or was that the aftermath of Micheletto?

How strange for parents to reminisce over your children while your whore is standing in front of you.

Wow… that last scene with the entire family was beautiful. I can’t WAIT for it to come back on. I am going to miss it… I wont know what to do with myself in its absence!!! I guess I will survive.

So, truth be told, I have been spelling Giovanni’s name incorrectly. His name is Giovanni Sforza. Wowzers! And all this time I have been calling him Swartza…lol.

Ummm. Really. Juan is in a whore house when he has his brother’s wife at is disposal? Really. And I saw more saggy breasts in this whore house than should have been allowed , but I guess that a body is a body, right. And ewwww, Cesare dipped Juan’s head into the whore house bucket water. Yucky!!!

Damn, poor Paulo. I mean, really!!! Sforza, why must you whip him just because he wont tell you where Lucrezia is headed. But will you shut the hell up so that you may survive this whipping!!! Damn, Paulo… just hush! No need to get sassy with Sforza while he is whipping you. OUCH!

And again, I will NEVER understand why Juan was placed in control over the Papacy Army. SMDH.

Cardinal Sforza suggests that they abandonRomein the wake of the French Army coming towards them? Hmmmm I wonder if he has joined forces with his cousins. And why does Cesare not wear the cardinal hat like the rest of the cardinals? But at least the Pope will stay inRome.

My mouth almost fell off my face when Lucrezia and her father’s mistress, Julia, encountered the French Army on the road toRome.

Okay, Preach Juan. I SOMEWHAT agree with meeting the French Army further away from Rome so that they cannot use their cannons to destroy the walls of Rome. I mean, he is looking a little thuggish; straight loving his swagger. Go Juan! It’s your fight day! Lol.

WOW! I forgot that Micheletto (the Assassin) even existed. I wondered what happened to him.

Ummm… yeh, Cardinal Rovere is so bold to walk to where Julia and Lucrezia are being held by the French Army. But I must say, Lucrezia is a smart cookie; especially since they have been invited to dine with the French’s King Charles. And the way these ladies are playing King Charles at the dinner table should be patented…lol.

HOT DAMN!!!! The way that these chained cannon balls tore through the front line of the Papal Army was purely gross. Now, I do wish that the graphics persons would have given greater detail to the dead bodies… they look fake as hell. Lol.  Yes, Lucrezia is such a smart woman… the way she ran across the field to negotiate this offer to her brother, Juan, on behalf of King Charles’ bloodless entry to Rome is genius. Now, if in fact King Charles is aimed is to attackNaples, then Lucrezia just made the biggest and simplest military move I have ever seen in my entire life.

OUCH! Cesare calledRomean “old whore waiting once more for her ravishment”. Hmmmm. I wonder how this will play out.  And Juan used the word “lemming”? That term was used back in 1492? I just thought it was a video game for Sega…lmao. The more I stare at Juan’s hair it just looks like he gets his hair done at the same place as Donald Trump’s comb-over.

Now, try as he might, The Pope cant make me believe that he isn’t hiding….lol. He wants to hid in the simple garments. But It was a nice touch how he said it was to face his enemies the same way that The Savior faced his in his final hours. GENIUS! Scandalous, but genius. Man, those sandals look like some worn down American Eagle sandles.

And now, Cesare is trying to get his mistress to flee from her nunnery. Woman, RUN!!!

Wow! I cannot wait to see next week’s Season Finale!!!!

I am ready to see Lisa Raye’s journey…..

Take 2 in 5, 4, 3, 2, 2, 2, 2, #ALLWHITEDiamonds

WOW!!! Like listening to Lisa Raye tell the story about how these preachers tried to scam her dad via religion! I get so pissed when humans try to tell you the will of God and proclaim that they can do it. Soooooo what kind of tutelage does Luther McKinistry give?

Lol. Okay, I bout choked when I heard Lisa Raye say dang instead of Damn. But I do understand what she means when she says that she wants to hear a Bible story that speaks to her. I think that I can go several months at church without hearing anything from the Bible that speaks to me… but then there are moments when they do and I can’t explain it. And yes, I understand Lisa Raye because I too want to know the Rules of Christianity.

OUCH!!! Lisa Raye didn’t get any alimony?  Ummmm….. I can’t even comprehend one hundred MILLION dollars. As the premiere of Turks and Caicos, how do you go through a hundred MILLION dollars? Dear LAWD if you ever give me ONE million…. I will hold on to it until my great, great, great, great grandchildren die!

I might need to go to the Woman Thou Art Loosed conference one day, cause LAWD knows I am tied up! First Lady Serita Jakes doesn’t age a BIT! That woman is beautiful to me.  LMAO!!!! I love how Candid Lisa Raye is being with them. LMAO~~> First Lady said that Lisa Raye is going to have to put a cap on it when it comes to sex.  Ummm… where can I purchase this “cap” because I’m trying to behave too, but I feel you Lisa Raye!

Okay, I have to admit….. I am JUST NOW learning that his name is Thomas Dexter Jakes….lol. I knew T.D. wasn’t his name but I took it how I was given it…lol. Bishop does the scripture about Paul on the road toDamascus. He said that we find too much time deliberating over what God plans for us. I almost cussed!!!! I needed to hear this sermon.

Soooooo how much do I have to pay to get a one-on-one sit down with Bishop Jakes? I’m willing toget a second job to raise the funds if you will let me know how much his time costs. I know everyone wants to have a moment of his time…. So I’ll wait.

I LOVE how Bishop said that I am ALLOWED to ask questions until I got answers. “People can take your stuff, but they cannot take what made that stuff” Hmmmmmmmmm. ”When God says wait…. It means wait. In the Greek, in the Hebrew, in the Now”. Mmmmmm. I swear…this right here touched MY soul. WOW!!!!

Okay… this episode was WORTH watching. I don’t think that Lisa Raye can understand that she has blessed SO MANY PEOPLE by filming this episode. Mmmmmm… I’m Loosed too.

Today was packed with soooo much to do. I discovered how to take notes in church on my Nook Color, cooked dinner for the week with my mentee, and managed to pick out all of my clothes for the week. Why, you ask? Because… I am turning my life around for the better…..and I want to have more time and energy to come home and blog for all of you wonderful people. So, all of that to say, Sorry for being late with posting this blog but I still love you… please still love me. lol.

Take 2 in 5, 4, 3, 2, 2, 2, 2, #CrimeMurderFamilyAMEN!

Okay, soooooo there was too  much going on for me to pay attention while I was cleaning my house. Yes, I clean at 10pm on Sundays…lol.

First off.. still calling Roman Police on Joffre’s wife. THAT IS SICK!!! You will NEVER make me like the fact that children had to consummate their marriages to older people. Just flat-out nasty! And Sanje (sp), Joffre’s wife is still having an affair with Jaun. SHAME ON JUAN!!!!!

Lucrezia is still getting her groove on with Paulo, with the helpf of Francesca, the maid servant. Swartza was getting better and wanted to get his groove on until I think that Lucrezia slicked the floor and made him slip and hurt his leg again, preventing him from having sex. Rumor has it…. they havent slept together since Swartza broke his leg. So, in my Maury voice, in the case of the morning sickness being exhibited by Lucrezia and found out by the pope’s mistress…. Swartza, you are NOT the father….lmao! Paulo, looks like you’re gonna be a baby’s daddy! lol. But….only Lucrezia and her father’s mistress know about this.

Speaking of mistresses, Cesare seeks out to find the woman whose husband he killed. She was housed in a nunnery which fell under his cardinal house. She fought and held on to her vows as a nun and pushed him away. I have a feeling that he will be back….and eventually she will give in. Girl, you know you want some Cesare!

Rovere is still at it. The King of France has marched through a city ( can’t remember which) and killed a bunch of innocent people. Children and women were slain in the streets. And the fight choreographer had a thing for showing slashed necks as if nothing else could be stabbed. I think I got the picture after the 5th slashed neck. Rovere pleads with the King to allow him to march ahead to Florence and seek Florence’s surrender so that peace may follow instead of the massacre that occurred that day. I would too if I heard the voice of Uncle Fester’s earlier premonition of the bloodshed that would follow if war were to break out in Italy.

The King of Florence was straight gangster. He made the King of France ride with his lance backwards and even lowered the gate to the city low enough that would make him have to ride with it backwards. Rovere and the Florence king spoke of rumors of the both of them being excommunicated if they participate or surrender to the King of France. The King of Florence sai, ” Well, I guess it will have to depend on one’s definition of Surrender.” CAN WE SAY GANGSTER!!!

Well, the entire Swartza family is joining the rest of the country and will allow the French Army to march through. Despite the promise Lucrezia’s husband made to support the Pope when he married her, he is joining the decision of his cousin’s and will not protect the House of Borgia. SHAME ON THIS BROKE LEG, LIMP DICK HAVING HEATHEN!!!. Did you not hear me say, YOU ARE NOT THE FATHER! hahahahahah.

If anything else occurred? I cannot remember. Blame it on my busy life and not on my willingness to entertain. See ya next week. And Scene!

If I remember NOTHING else…. my future husband, Chef G Garvin, is on this episode. So, shut up and let me watch this episode.

Take 2 in 5, 4, 3, 2, 2, 2, 2, #ALLWHITEDiamonds

So, I had a very HARD day at work. I have a migraine and really wanted to just come in and go straight to sleep, but I needed a pick me-up…….this is doing it!

Waaaaaaaaait! Did Candy just sit there and say that the best mac & cheese was the kind with the government cheese…lmao!!! That was funny. And wow!!! This cook-off challenge literally came out of nowhere. So I guess that there was more conversation that got edited.

I am looking at the outside of Lisa Raye’s house…. and I must admit, it doesnt look like it would be a house that Lisa would choose. Why in the hell is the house not white? I’m just saying.

Okay, so now Lisa Raye is trying to be on her Sonja Norwood? And I am listening to Lisa Raye being a “momeger” and it seems so casual and laid back and not very manager-ish. And then she threw in a pitch for them to send her clothes in a size 6…..lmao! Hood fab.

I would go to buy Apple Bottom, but I dont have an apple or a bottom….so I would be in penalty for stepping foot in the store…lol. As president of Donk Deficiency Anonymous, I have to represent for the assless. lol.

Beverly Johnson’s daughter, Anansa, is gorgeous!!! But then again, I have to say this…..she looks like what the modeling industry wants plus size girls to look like. She has the slanted eyes and high cheek bones with the long hair. I want them to let everyone be represented. Can we get darker skin tones, kinkier hair, etc. I am not knocking either of them for working out their hustle….but I want the industry to give someone who looks like me and not someone who is shaped like me. Is that too much to ask? Either way….they both are beautiful.

I want a photo by Derek Blanks!!!!!! He will superimpose the Royal Wedding in Kenya if you ask him too! lol.

Kai is ROCKING this Apple Bottom photo shoot. The one with the black dress and she is standing up…… PRICELESS!!! That is gorgeous!!! I want that dress….. *googles*

HERE COMES MY HUSBAND!!!!!!!!!!! Damn, his hands even look sexy as hell. Dear Lord, I have NEVER prayed to you for a husband, so the fact that I am coming to you now should tell you how serious I am. Please let me be found by Chef G. Garvin….lol. Wait, no lol… I’m serious! Yummy… he looks as delectable as his food is. *shivers* LMAO!!! Did Chef G. Garvin do the Huxtable Jump-back at the “from the side” joke? hahahahahaha.

CANDY BETTER BACK THE HELL UP OFF MY MAN!!!!! *Takes off earrings* *Blocks her prayer* Y’all think that I am playing…. I want G. Garvin.  I want to be Mrs. Chef G. Garvin….lol.

And……. I think that Lisa Raye tried to burn their throats with that burger….lol. But at least she won the cook-off. The only thing that is starting to bug me is these little 2 word commentaries Lisa Raye does. “It was down to the wire” or “What was I to do?”. They needed to fill up the 30 minutes? lol.

Awwwww…. it is over? Chef G. Garvin is gone already? Okay, so…. who out there can get me a date with Chef G. Garvin?This is not a TEST or a JOKE… I’m so serious. Do I need to cook? I can cook for him. I’m from the south where in order to breathe in your house you have to cook by the age of 8. lol.  But this was a good episode to watch. Next week’s episode looks good too. And scene.

I should have written this last night, but I had to prepare for this morning. But, rest assured that I did at least watch the show…. so, shall we?

Take 2 in 5, 4, 3, ,2 , 2, 2, 2 #CrimeMurderFamilyAmen

Okay, off the bat…. this episode was clearly a reflection of a sexually oppressed writer. I think the only male butt and female’s breast I didn’t see in this episode was Vannozza ( the mother of the Pope’s children) and her husband. There were freaks to the left of them, freaks to the right of them….lol.

So, outside of all the blatant fornication, there really was some progression in the plot….I think. Rovere was still milling about the country trying to bring France to Rome’s front door. Which to me is the STUPIDEST thing to do. Why kill innocent lives just to bring down the papacy? I feel like I should have called on the Charmed sisters. P3 to the rescue!!! But he succeeded in getting the King Charles of France to agree to begin a war, right after he showed him the destruction that a cannon can do to a castle wall. Yes, I have always wanted to shoot a cannon into the side of my own castle wall……sign number one.

Lucrezia has quickly settled in to her role of Battered Wives 101. After setting up Swartza to fall off the horse, where he subsequently broke his leg, she has taken on the role of his caretaker. He immediately apologizes for the way that he treated her merely because she has Borgia blood in her veins. She wipes it away as she has more tricks than this up her sleeves. She later mentions to Cesare that she finds that a confined husband is a more tame husband.  Her an Paulo kick up their sexual raunchiness up a notch. Yes, nothing says “freak me baby” like poison ivy in the ass after a romp in the forrest or sex on an old, creaky maritial bed. Even the servants are helping to keep Paulo and Lucrezia’s sexual activities under wraps. Swartza once heard the bed squeaking from the room he now sleeps in due to his injury and seeks out the cause of this noise. He was under suspicion that some sexual activity was going on, but the servants stopped him in the hall by showing him that the noise he heard was merely the squeaky butter churn. CLEAR GENIUS!!!

Juan was supposedly next in line to be married, as Cesare is now a cardinal and cannot be married. They show the bastard daughter of King Ferrante of The House of Aragon (Naples). It is agreed that Joffre, the youngest who I believe is only 13, will be the one to marry her. Juan makes up some excuse that he must go check out this betrothed woman on Joffre’s behalf. Upon getting to Naples he has dinner and is given Sancia, the Dukess ( which is my first time hearing the term), as a tour guide of the castle. Sancia and Juan found it rather erotic to have sex on the table of the embalmed dead people who King Ferrante kept in his castle. Yes, THIS was new levels of freakdom for me.

Another level of Freakdom is that Sancia still married Joffre Borgia, and moments before entering the marital bedroom to consummate their marriage, she was behind the wall having sex with Juan. Yes, I find it highly creepy and a means to file a child molestation charge on those who felt it okay for a 130year-old Joffre to consummate his marriage with this 20-something-year-old illegitimate child of King Ferrante.  The scene, down to the fade out was rather creepy and uncomfortable to me. Just saying….. But at least his mother was allowed to attend his wedding. And oh… Cesare and Vannozza picked up on the subtle clues that when it came to Joffre’s betrothed wife…. Juan already hit that…lol. Well, they gave that impression, any way.

Cesare, which I find it interesting to keep hearing everyone pronounce his name Chess-ah-ray, finally gets some booty from the nobleman’s wife. For 3 weeks they broke her wedding vows and some of his Cardinal vows as well, just for her to discover that her husband was found dead with knife wounds to the chest. She feels guilty, gets all dramatic, Cesare says that he will hunt her down and she will never get rid of him, and she joins a nunnery. *Cues Shakespeare Abridged* “Get thee to a nunnery!”

Juan happens to be at his mother’s cottage when her husband shows up; not to be confused with the Pope, mind you. He gets enraged and beats the living spit out of this dude. All under the premise that rumor has it one of the Borgia children are indeed Vanozza’s. Juan confronts the Pope, to which the Pope replies “You are our son”. I think he was speaking in the papacy sense, as in You are the son of the Pope, The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. I don’t think that he means, Mine and your mother’s.

There is soooo much here, and judging by the simple Google search that I did to find Sancia’s name, this series could go on for YEARS!!!!! I don’t want to spoil it, but research showed me that people get married more than once, and the debauchery continues! STAY TUNED!!! Amen

Episode 4: Birth of a Runner

Just ready to see this week’s episode… nothing special to say before hand.

Take 2 in 5, 4, 3, 2, 2, 2, 2, #ALLWHITEDiamonds

I simply LOVE watching Lisa Raye in the kitchen with her mother!!! Those are moments that I wish that I could have had with my mother, so I am more than jealous. *Sigh* Wait til you all read my book when it gets finished.

I simply, Simply LOVE the t-shirt that they gave her for her birthday that said “My friends call me Lisa Raye” LMAO!!!! I simply AGREE with Lisa Raye about the black attributes that people only applaud when someone else has it. She mentioned Bo Derrick’s braids and she mentioned Kim Kardashian’s ass. Yeh, it only becomes a big deal when people do what we have done for centuries and what we do/have naturally…. but PLEASE don’t get me started on this. The next time I see a KKK member… I’m gonna wish him skin cancer as he tries to get my natural melanin….lol.

Sidebar: Okay, so this whole “Stacy lost Lisa Raye’s Louis luggage” thing is getting on my GOT DAMN NERVE! Okay, let me put this in perspective. Rewind with me now. The first episode, Lisa Raye asked if the airline had lost Stacy’s luggage and then made the remark ” Let me not put that in the universe. But at least I’ve got mine”. I’m begging you, watch the reruns with me, Lisa Raye is HOLDING HER OWN LUGGAGE while she makes that statement and she is talking about celebrities showing up in town at airports. Now, as fans are requesting pictures and autographs, clear as day, the cameraman catches a glimpse of Lisa Raye walking away from her bag and it is in every shot in the background as she takes pics with fans. You can see the luggage behind them unattended. LISA RAYE walked off from her own bag.  And I must make the connection to the episode with her make-up artist, where she offered to carry her make-up artist’s bags for her. So you can carry someone else’s bags but you cannot carry your OWN and then you get made because someone else didn’t check YOU for your OWN bag? Get out of here on that.  So, be grown, and carry your own shit!

But at least I am glad that Lisa Raye and Stacy got over it and that they have moved on from this. It was a learning experience

Wait… did Quincy just say that he has Herpes Complex 10 because Lisa Raye kissed him? LMAO! I love that man! Lawd knows that I do!. And Lisa Raye said hat they fight like cats and cats.

But wow!! Lisa is 43 and truth be told…. she doesn’t look a day over 29. And I am not trying to gas her up…. but truth be told. I need to het on my Lisa Raye game…lol.

Jemisha’s (sp) fundraiser was a very WONDERFUL idea. But wait, what kind of treatment is going to be performed for her Sarcoma Cancer(sp) that could help Jemisha that she can only get in Germany? I will continue to send prayers in her direction. I wish that there was a website that we could go to so that us regular people could send money to support Jemisha. I want to support and send funding support DIRECTLY to her. Will inquire as to where I can do that. I mean, a sister aint balling outside of a budget, but every little bit counts and I think that I could skip a few meals to make sure she has a fight chance. What? SHut up… you would get sentimental too if you were human. I just don’t dog people out via my blog and in real life all the damn time. I have a heart….and I want to help. So, get ya game up and help too.

I LOVE Jemisha’s look that she is rocking for her fundraiser. JUST GORGEOUS!!!!! Yummy… DeRay Davis. I have some back story on that man there! lol Don’t worry… nothing scandalous, just a story on how I first met him while I was at Auburn University…but I digress. Glad that he is hosting this fundraiser with Lisa Raye. ANd the man who gave $200 is fine as hellllllllll………. NAWL!!! Elise Neal is in a girl group called Elise & Assorted Flavors? Okay, maybe I would have has to hear that in real-time. Or replay. Ummmmm…yeh. Okay, this comedian, Donovan, talking about the lace fronts is funny. He can stay.

AHAHAHAHAHAHA! They didn’t have to clown dude that they called Hustle Simmons. lmao! But he did look like how Russel would look if he were tall and fine. What? I’m just saying. Damn, Brooke Valentine?!!!! Where has she been? Girl Fight was my joint back in the day; that and MisBehavin’s Beat that Bitch with a Bottle. Okay… Ummm I should have been paying attention to KD/Katy Aubert or whoever that was, but I was so distracted by the cameraman all up in her crotch!

WOW!!! Management is paying for Jemisha’s flight over to Germany. Man, I really feel like I should do something. This is just beautiful. Dont ever let it be said that black people can’t get together for a cause without being arrested or shot 9 times. We have our moments,and this was a moment to be proud of! I salute Jemisha!

Okay, so they did give a link where we could donate to the cause for Jemisha if we so choose. The link is: www.JemsLifeForASPS.org

All jokes, and freedom of speech aside, I am making a vow to go and donate SOMETHING to this cause. If you do nothing else…..please go make a donation. Hell, you all don’t leave comments below so you can use that time to go make a donation. And no, I don’t know her….and I don’t have to know that I want to help.

Next Week: HOLD THE HELL UP!!!!!! Is my husband on next week’s episode! Yes, you didn’t know. I am married to Chef G Garvin in my head. And no… it is not my inner fat girl speaking…. this is my Southern woman recognizing a beautifully crafted and talented gentleman!!! Lawd have mercy!!! See y’all next week…lol

Lisa Raye~Birth of a Runner

In Take 2: Film/TV Reviews on 25 April 2011 at 12:06 am

Episode 1: My Intro to Lisa Raye

Episode 2: Take 2, Literally

Episode 3: What Chilli Wants?

So, last week was one of those shows where I had to face what was going on in my life as I blogged. Yes, it is hard to know that I am in the same boat as a woman who is beautiful as hell….and know that she will get a relationship before me.  And not to mention that the entire week was filled with a ton of relationship challenges….the guys that I came in contact with last week challenged me to the core.

With all of that being said…. I hope that this week’s episode does NOT make me look inside of myself.  Well, let’s go.

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

I know that I just said Take 2 above…..but that was Thursday when I thought I was ready to write this. So, to say that I am late in writing this would be an understatement. I am sooooooooo sick that it is not even funny. I hate spring and I hate that if I think about getting sick…..I am down for 3 weeks. So, to everyone who was looking for this to be posted on Friday, my deepest apologies. Please know that I have been well medicated, dehydrated, and plain knocked the hell out and preparing for Easter Sunday. I would have rather been writing this.

Now that it is Sunday and I just woke up from a coma after church at 10pm after only an hour or so of sleep from last night…yadda yadda, yadda….I figured I could write this before The Borgias came on.

Take 2 (Literally) in 5, 4, 3, 2, 2, 2, 2, #AllWhite

Okay, so Lisa Raye is running her first 5k marathon for the Susan G Komen: Race for the Cure. Hmmm…. I will take Lisa Raye’s cue and I will begin to condition myself to run my first 5k marathon all the way through by spring races in 2012. I think that is a believable time frame, right? And so does her trainer not have a last name?

Okay, so remember the cousin that lost the suitcase? Isnt that her assistant? Why have we not seen her since they have returned from Puerto Rico? Did she fire the poor girl? And truth be told….. karma is a bitch. Because watching all of those reruns of that episode Lisa Raye did joke about her cousin losing her bag and boasting about how she had hers. And in several shots when the fans are taking pics….the Louis V suitcase is visibly in the background, and not even Lisa Raye is near the bag, but….I digress.

Now, on to this new stylist. Wait, back up. Joe eXclusive……I don’t know if his outer appearance would have made me trust him enough to even give him an opportunity to dress me, but I guess I could learn not to judge a bargain basement book by its cover. What? You thought that just because it was Easter that I would be easy on him? BWAHAHAHAHAHAH! You know better. Okay, back to this new stylist. Her name is Okera. She pronounces is Oh-k-ear-ah. Cute. Too close to okra to keep my humor in tact. BUUUUUUUT!

I love her mother’s house….the little bit that we got to see. And the dog, Diamond…is so cute. Now, if i could get my dog, Stanely Blu to give a high-five he will be the coolest dog in the neighborhood…lol. Right now he’s smart, but too smart for his own good…lol. Wow… how about I am just now learning about Circle of Promise….wait, no, I take that back. I remember Gabrielle Union mentioned it on The Mo’Nique Show. My Aunt Sharon, is a survivor of breast cancer… so to watch this episode hits home for me, too. Now, Lisa Raye putting on make-up to run a race continues to remind me that there will be something that I dont understand about her in every episode….lol. I guess it is a celebrity thing. But I do see Lisa Raye caring for her make-up artist touched me so very much. THAT is not a celebrity thing, that is a human thing. Those are moments that I love to see in Lisa Raye.

Man, I am watching them run and I am wondering….why are they running so damn fast!!! Slow it down people… I am getting tired just watching them. I would do what I call the “fat girl shuffle”, that’s more of an accelerate walk …less of a jog yet more than a walk. But I applaud her for her effort. Lawd….did I promise to be able to do that by next Spring?  YEA!!!!!!!!! Lisa Raye finished the race!!!!!!!! That really touched me. Okay… so yes, I can do it! Well… I learned a ton from this episode….can’t wait for the next.

Sincerely,

The Borgias~The Borgias in Love

In Take 2: Film/TV Reviews on 25 April 2011 at 12:02 am

Episode 1 & 2: The New Tudors?

Episode 3: Stench of Borgia

Episode 4: Something Borrowed

Today is Easter Sunday….I wonder what debauchery will be brought forth in this episode. Hmmm…whatever it is, I pray that it is worth asking for forgiveness.

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

WOW!!! How creepy to have Lucrezia come out of the water that way, all pale and float into the painting in the ceiling!!!!!!! PERFECT ENTRANCE AND BRAVO TO THE CINEMATOGAPHER & DIRECTOR!!!!

I still feel terrible for Lucrezia and the man she was forced to marry. Shame! I know for a fact that I was born in a time where I too am given to option to love the man I marry. Who would have thought this would have ever been a perfect choice for her. Shame on her father! That last episode and every scene with Lucrezia and her husband Swartza….still bring emotions for me. Great job on the writers!

Now, Cesare and this woman who he met at his sister’s wedding….wow! Dudes back then could meet a woman from a dance, catch feelings and be ready to kill for her? Where did that part of the male chivalry and romance go?….lol. So this woman is married and yet, that does not stop Cesare from wanting her.  And of course Cesare’s mother brings forth the idea that he could leave the church to have a life with this woman if he so dared. Wow…. Cesare told the woman that he would put her heart “in fear of its life, but he would never harm it.” WHO WROTE THAT?!!! I need to follow them around to obtain such genius.

I need for them to speak more clearly!!!! I just missed a very important line due to mumbling!!! Something about threatening Lucrezia’s husband with some kind of possibility. It would have to deal with Giovanni Swartza’s nephew, i suppose.

Rovere is spending all of this time traveling; first Naples, then Florence, and now Milan? Oh wait…..so it was not Lucrezia’s husband (Swartza) that the Pope spoke of…but his cousin is Giovanni Swartza. But wait… did he (Giovanni) just pee through the floor onto his nephew for him to drink? EWWWWW! But at what point was Rovere fulfilling his cardinal duties?

And I must find out more about this Machiavelli from Florence; the same who spoke with Rovere and now seeks out Cesare. Wow… the clever wordplay of this episode is enough to make me touch myself……like watching this guy take baths as Lucrezia watches. Oh…so the handsome servant is Paulo. Hmmmmm…lol

LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The revealing for the portrait for Princess Silvia from Navarre(sp) almost had me choke on my Sauvignon Blanc…lol. Juan’s face was simply priceless….lol.

But help me understand, is Lucrezia so longing for companionship that after being practically raped she is so connected to the servant, Paulo? But I guess some victims behave differently. But brilliant to have Paulo mess with Swartza’s saddle to make him fall.

LMAO!!!!!! So the Cardinal (Swartza) was caught with his cousin, twice removed Jerry Lee Lewis style, leaving his room with sexual purposes floating in the air when the pope walks in. Funny how the pope said, “I would hope more than twice removed”.  And his going to Milan killed the Duke that was chained in the floor, the nephew. Wow…..thsoe people had not a care in the world.

I quote “Now my best would break your promise, Borgia” . Even the Assassin is a poet, I see.

Wait… does the pope carry a flask? Ummmm….so communion is a daily ritual for His Holiness? lol.  *takes a sip*

Damn, Cesare…… a dude disrespected your mother and you killed the Barron? Remind me not to say anything about your mother, Vannozza(sp).

So, Swartza did fall off of his horse and broke his leg… back then that could almost be deadly if not set correctly. But I think that this should be a warning to the heads of households who do not properly treat those who support them. I make a personal reference on that sentiment. Oh, what I would give to return to 1492………And Scene.

Sincerely,
