Favorite Movie: Unconditional
Unconditional, starring my future husband, Michael Ealy... Laugh if you, want to- you know I am laughing, lol. This was an amazing movie provided by Christian Media. Although I am a Christian, I don't always like "Christian" movies. At times I feel they lack the authenticity of real life & struggle. I feel a lot of times it's a one-sided view of the world... but not this movie. This movie had so many different dynamics, messages, and nuances. More than anything, it has Michael Ealy, lol. Well, ok, a great message too...
Favorite Talk Show: The Wendy Williams Show
While I was sick, I sat many days on the couch, watching my pre-recorded episodes of The Wendy Williams Show. I started recording it, because after watching her interview w/the Think Like A Man cast, I really appreciated her authenticity and interviewing skills. For those of you who know me well, I'm a more "get to the point, ask what you want to know person". I hate when people beat around a bush; mind you, I believe a great deal in tact, I like for people to get to the point. Wendy, I feel, does this better than any talk show host I've seen. She gets the information we all want to know! Go Wendy!
Favorite Guilty Pleasure: Here Comes Honey Boo Boo
Yes... I tried that. I had to check out why everyone was raving and fascinated with this show. As we all know, the child pageant world is somewhat the trainwreck of southern society-- at least to us Northerners... But for some reason, we can't seem to turn away from the spray tanned, flipper wearing, big-haired little girls that go on about "Glitz" and "Beauty". The picture above pictures probably my favorite phrase from the entire series... and it came from the Belle of the show, Honey Boo Boo... "You Betta' Redneckonize!"
Favorite Reunion Show: The Real Housewives of New Jersey
Another Not-so-guilty pleasure of mine, is watching The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Last Sunday's episode proved to be every bit as volatile and "Giucy" as we thought it would be. One thing I wish they wouldn't do, however, is scream & talk over each other for long periods of time. I wish Andy had the Cajones to step in a little more and break it up. If anything, the viewers would appreciate it. This season's reunion is broken up into three parts, each one promises to be more revealing than the next. Teresa Giudice completely comes off as a fame whore in this episode with her attention-seeking antics and inability to let any other Housewife share her story, thought, and air. She even went as low as to try and turn a moment about Jacqueline Laurita's son, Nick's, autism, about her. She's proven to be one of the most narcissistic women on the show. The girl needs a muzzle. Then the nerve for her to come on Wendy Williams and try to "explain" more of why she acts this way. She's on there about every 3 weeks! Please. I'd love to hear more from anyone else BUT Teresa. I think I'm mostly excited to hear from Rosie, Kathy Wahkile's no-holds-barred, rough and tumble sister. Can't wait!
Favorite DVD of the week: Think Like a Man
Oh, yes, another reference to Mr. Ealy. What can I say? I'm a little enamoured with him, right now. I got to see a lot of his trueness in some radio interviews on Youtube & other blogs- and what I can say about him, is that he's one of the most grounded celebrities I feel like I've been able to relate to. That being said, this week's pick is for another reason... which I'll mention in the next Favorite...
Best Moment: My Brain!!
The fact that God has given me the ability to be technologically competant, is a huge blessing. I never take that for granted. Being a Single girl, living alone- I have no one to help me with the "manly" duties. I use that term loosely. You're talking about a chic that changed my own brake pads, and didn't smudge my fresh Cherry Red Manicure. I'm a beast, when it comes to taking care of business around my home. As it relates to the DVD: Of course I pre-ordered Think Like A Man as soon as I was aware of it's release date. Well, my actual DVD player is old & needs to be replaced. So, I was watching my brand new movie in my laptop on my Toshiba Player. Much to my chagrin, it was like watching an old Kung-Fu movie-- you know the kind, where the words don't match up to the dialogue. I tried to suffer through it... and at first wondered if there was something wrong with the DVD, itself. After cleaning it about 1000 times, I tried something else. By adjusting my power levels, I was able to figure out how to sync up my DVD. I felt so powerful in that moment! And relieved that I could watch my movie in peace!
Ok- I've written enough! Gotta save something for the next blog. Have a great week, everyone!!
