My Life Trip

My thoughts on . . . well, pretty much everything.

ANTM Cycle 10 . . . September 10, 2008

Filed under: Pop Culture,That ish is funny to me!,TV — jden723 @ 8:33 pm

is not getting better with time.  LOL!

 

Here’s my view of the top 13:

Isis – Deep fried hot mess on a stick.  Of course you have issues with her face Miss J . . . “She’s a dude.”    I have no problem with her being a dude if she was hot.  But she is not.  So whatever point Tyra is trying to prove is loss in the sauce with this one.   I’ve seen better on Maury.

 

Analeigh – She’s aight in a “I work at Sonic”  kind of way.

 

Samantha – Hooters girl.

 

Hannah – Did she present herself in a way that legitimately caused others to view her as prejudiced?  Of course she did.  Did she pull the typical move that every white girl I have ever encountered that made prejudice remarks pull?  The crying, “OMG, they are horrible for thinking that of me,” move.  Of course she did and of course that discussion took place with other white women who don’t get it because it doesn’t effect them.  (Ok JDen, pull-up you are having flashbacks to being one of only a handful of black girls in your high school and living in college dorms where you were also one of few.)  Stepping off soap box.  I don’t find her very interesting to look at. 

 

 

Nakeisha – Ok, now come on.  I thought the big wannabe Grace Jones lookin’ chick with the bad teeth (Marveta maybe) from a couple of seasons ago was bad, but this girl is  . . . seriously. 

 

Lauren – I find her look weird.  They think she’s hot, guess we’ll be seeing her around for a while.

 

Niki – I love that comment, “Love child of Poisin Ivy and the Joker.”  So true.

 

Clark – Face is very angular. 

 

Marjorie – Just weird.  I guess her picture was cool.

 

Elina – One of my faves.  She does favor Angelina Jolie in her picks.

 

Sheena – The hoochie thing is just funny.  The whole fake boob thing – even funnier.

 

Brittany – She’s beautiful.  Not sure if she is gonna stick around.  Tyra doesn’t seem to like the pretty ones.  I mean the woman actually said she has proven she can make a million $ a year doing catalogs but not top model.  WTF!  That’s probably more than every contestant in every cycle combined.  None of them become TOP models.  Again, she has issues with the pretty ones.

 

Joslyn – Very attractive as well.  The weird baby talking is aggravating.

 

Overall favorites: Elina and Brittany.

My America’s Next Top Model contestant new season review!  I will post it asap.  I am writing it as we speak.  I started out speechless looking at this latest batch of  . . .  well, you’ll see.  Stay tuned.

 

Diddy and Aubrey . . . August 27, 2008

Filed under: Celebrities,Pop Culture,TV — jden723 @ 4:04 pm

artistic differences or lover’s quarrel?

I think the latter.  Once again, I think his behavior lends itself to the rumors.  When you look at how Diddy has handled his other woman problems: JLo, LaurieAnn, now Aubrey, its more like scroned high school girl than business man.

Just my 2 cents.  What’s yours?

BTW Aubrey is hot mess on a stick for real.

 

(Update) New Dancing With The Stars Cast . . . Seriously August 25, 2008

Filed under: Celebrities,My social commentary,Pop Culture,TV — jden723 @ 10:52 pm

Are they trying to kill the show.  Check out this list of cows, crows, who’s?, what’s?, and huh’s?

Cloris Leachman – Ok, aside from the fact that she is 82.  She might be one of the only two that I kinda like.  You go Phyllis!

Susan Lucci – The only other one I like.  It makes sense.  Erica Kane on Dancing With The Stars.  Of course!

Lance Bass – Well, after the space debacle, he is the only one that really has no job.  At least the weird little bearded dude is “Goin’ Country.”  Not sure if this will get him anywhere like it did for Joey.  He constantly looks surprised which just weirds me out.  If you can’t get a big career boost from being the gay N Sync guy . . .

Tony Braxton – Can we say Vivica Fox.  I am so not looking forward to the vampy, throaty, half naked, don’t I look hot thing.  Unless she is EXTRAORDINARY (and we have seen her dance –  she would have to make the transformation that Janet did between Dreamstreet and Control) America probably won’t buy it because too many people don’t know who she is and those who do know who she is watch but don’t vote.

Misty May-Traynor – Beach Vollyball olympian.  Again, seriously?

Maurice Green – Track and Field Sydney and Athens.  Hot body but really.  Wasn’t he the one everyone couldn’t stand because he was an arrogant azz who spent time licking his tongue and acting an azz on the medal stands?  I ask again . . . seriously?  He is a brother, maybe he has rhythm.  America was fooled by Emmit Smith’s non-dancing azz.  Yes, I am still bitter about America’s obsession with sports figures taking over my dance shows.  And yes, Jerry Rice and that Taylor dude from last year sucked too.

Cody Linley from Hannah Montana.  Let’s face it, he’s not even Hannah Montana.  People love the Cheetah Girls and that little girl was off the hook and she got the boot.

Kim Kardashian (obviously the “cow” in my opening) – Ok, now this is just wrong.  She is not even a Star.  And can you imagine her making a big deal out of showcasing her booty in those gowns?  Good grief.  She has already cut her toe and has to get special shoes made according to her publicist.  Let’s hope by the time the show starts the producers come to their senses and cut HER.  No matter, it will take care of itself.  Unless she is amazing the older crowd will ignore her and be put off by her shameless trashiness and I can’t imagine anyone else voting for her any more than they would for Paris Hilton.

***************************************************************************

Brooke Burke – Well, I guess when you need a job, you need a job.  It could be worse.  Yeah, Brooke Hogan would definitely be worse.  Yet anothe rperson that will have middle America going “Who?”

Rocco Dispirito – Ok, now I am going “Who?”  And I don’t take that lightly, you know how I loooove my pop culture.  At least he has a real day job.

Ted McGinley – Is there any ABC show they don’t put him on?  They must have him on speed dial.  I still won’t forgive him for what he did to the nerd in “rEvenge of the Nerds.”  Ok, I won’t forgive him for Happy Days and Married With Children either.  He is the Guttenberg of the cast.

“Comedian” Jeff Ross – Clearly the Adam Corolla of the cast.

Warren Sapp – ABC’s determination to convince us that football players can ballroom dance continues . . .

 

My obsession continues . . .

Sorry I have been out of the loop folks.  A sista has been dealing with things for real. 

Oddly enough, my obsession with all things trash TV has continued.  LOL!

As they say on VH1, “Watch and Discuss” . . .

Gone Country 2 – Lovin’ It!  I mean really, this is CelebReality gold.  A drunk Sean Young, a bitter Irene Cara, a sad N Sync’er (what the hell is his name), Sebastian Bach, Makayla Gordon (if I wasn’t a faithful American Idol watcher, I would be saying “Who? as well), way past his prime Lorenzo Lamas, and last but certainly not least, the greasiest-headed Jackson of them all – Jermaine “I am so retarded I named my son Jermagesty” Jackson.  I mean really, how could this possibly be bad?  LOL!

Outsiders Inn – Lovin This Too!  Maureen McCormick a.k.a. Marcia Brady a.k.a. Batshyt Crazy has decided to lease a BnB.  She calls upon her friends Carnie “Reality Chunkster” Wilson and Bobby Brown to help her run the BnB.  Does any of this make any sense?  HELL TO THE NAW.  But its awesome.  Carnie is the cook.  Does knowing how to eat qualify you as a chef?  Okay.  Bobby Brown is the director of entertainment.  Now, for the record, I love me some him.  But really has Bobby actually “entertained” anyone other than with his problems since My Perogative?  Well, no matter, throw in this bag of mixed nuts, some moonshine a.k.a. Tater Water, some locals right out of Deliverance, some other C/D list celeb visitors and you’ve got real humdinger of a show.  YeeeHaaaaw!

Queen Bees:  Gold Stars all around!!!  I am a little late to the party on this one, but I am catching up on the episodes.  Think Bad Girls Club for high school girls with a live-in therapist where they take the top “Heather” from several areas and try to change them in to someone we can tolerate.  But they kick them off when they lose to many gold stars.  Last week they threw Peerez Hilton into the mix and one of them ended up being called a younger cracked out Whitney Houston.  Okay granted, even a blind man could see the girl’s weave was jacked, but dayum! 

I Love Money – Yes.  I am still watching.  Why?  I just can’t stop myself.  I need help, you haven’t figured that out by now.

I Wanna Work for Diddy? – Why?  He’s an azz.  I am trying not to watch, I really am.

 Making the Band 4 – Not sure if I will stick with this one.  One word – “Aubrey.”  If she gets hit in the face with an iron maybe.  First episode definitely confirmed to me that the rumors were true about Diddy and LaurieAnn.  Situation jumped off like a lover’s quarrel and seemed to resolve itself as one.  The relationship tension between the two was so obvious, they probably should have edited it better.  But then again him and Kim “that’s my baby daddy” Porter have broken up so he can flaunt his escapade with LaurieAnn without the nagging.  By the way, both bands are booty.  Donnie is worse.  Not sure what is worse than sounding like azz, but if you come up with something, let me know.

From G’s to Gents  – LOL!  Need I say more.

The Hills – I never have, just won’t do it.  Can’t make me even if my eyes are glued open. 

Bridezillas!  – Awesome, gets more awesome every season.  Of course nothing tops the one chick getting left at the alter.  But I am lovin this show.  My 18 month old now yells “Biiiiiidezilllas!”  I don’t know which one this season has been craziest: The bride who was trying to eat herself into a new dress; the bride who wants everyone to be miserable and have a no fun wedding; the bride who got the groom a personal trainer and ate donuts during his training (did I mention she was as big as a house); the bride who quit her job without telling the groom and drives a jaguar and lives in a nasty house that is the brick equivalent of a doublewide; or the bride who told the guests she was gonna put out a bucket for cash at the wedding to reimburse her for the rehearsal dinner.  Its crazy on top of crazy.

Big Brother 10 – Still watching it.  Say what you want, the joint was definitely more interesting with Libra in it.  Don’t know what Ollie is gonna do without April, he has been getting it on the regular the whole time in the house.  Now that his “cuddle” partner is gone, I fear he may just get with the Long Island Troll Doll.

More to come.  Any suggestions?

 

Today might actually be the day . . . July 17, 2008

Filed under: Celebrities,Pop Culture,That ish is funny to me!,TV — jden723 @ 11:06 am

when Whoopi finally looses it and slaps the tar out of Elizabeth Hasselback.  The chick wouldn’t shut up.  First, whoopi ends the initial segment in frustration because Elizabeth wouldn’t acknowledge that Barbie looking like a ho shouldn’t have to be the end of the world as we know it.  Then she tries to argue Whoopi into submission about the word n!gger.  Whoopi was pretty much done at that point and just took her simple butt to school so “grandmomma break you down on the back porch about REAL life” that Elizabth began a tearful “we shall overcome” moment.  It was priceless.  I wanted to slap her.  Whoopi basically told her you can’t tell black people what they should and shouldn’t do about that word because you clearly don’t understand where that comes from and acknowledge that everything still isn’t the “same” for everyone.  She calaims that she did acknowledge that and Whoopi came back with “well you don’t sound like you do.”  Woo wee Whoopi!  Joy and Barbara just wanted Elizabeth to shut up and at one point Barbara basically just told her to let someone else talka nd took her to school a little bit too. 

And to think, all of this began because Fox has released some more sound bites from Jessie “mush-mouth” Jackson saying the dreaded “N” word.

 

Big Brother is back! Discuss BB10 with JDen July 15, 2008

Filed under: Pop Culture,Reality TV,That ish is funny to me!,TV — jden723 @ 1:41 pm

Ok, so its only been a few days, but what do you all think so far?  From what I can tell on the feeds, the old cuz (Jerry) already has some drama going on.  it seems that his initial alliance with the other dood has already fallen apart.  What do you think of Libra (the black woman who has to let you know in her every intro that she is raising Jenny and Allan Willis – for those of you who get that reference you’re my kind of people)?  Do you think she stands a chance or will her whole “I am a diva thing” that she bragged about on the pre-BB10 commercials creeps out and be her undoing in the face of the inevitable alliances between the young cool guys and the best friend clique of the bikini brigade?  What about Roid Rage guy and Dale Gribble’s dad (again, if you get that reference you are DEFINITELY my peeps)?  Is the hagged out hair dresser from New Orleans even worthy of discussion?

ALERT****

Ok, just read some stuff based on the feeds.  Drama jumped off between Michelle, Angie, Libra, and Jerry.  Brian and Dan are definitely doing some major scheming and one of their targets for nomination if Jerry will use the POV to do it, is to save Brian and put up somebody like Libra.  If not, they are going to try to get a tie vote and hope they can sway the house as the drama fester between Michelle, Libra, Angie and Jerry today.  Old man Jerry won HoH and POV.  Go on “old cuz “!(that will be his name for the purposes of my blog).
