Love & Hip Hop - what a show - Bye bye X Factor




So I've given up on watching X Factor aka the search for SyCo's new bitch and found a new series. Love and Hip series one. OMG! So much drama going down. I was thinking of doing a write up for each episode because it is just so fabulous. Right now I'm loving Chrissy Lampkin, Mama Nancy Jones and Emily. Those are my favourite. I love love Samaya. I think both Chrissy and Samaya have more in common than the others.

I think if not for the situation both Samaya and Chrissy would be friends because there is sort of honesty about those two that come accross. They don't take any rubbish or nonsense of anyone.

I love Nancy Jones (Jim Jone's Mama) because she knows how to work walk out of a  situation before it turns nasty. She gets provoked up to a certain point and then leaves. And even though she is a primadonna, drama queen and can extremely childish - she more often than not has a point. We know she is unpredictable and probably the sort of person you'll avoid but she speaks the truth and has self respect. She has dignity. Enough that when the situation is getting out of hand in a public arena she walks away. She is not going to hand her hang too much of her dirty linen in public.

Emily. Well I'm not sure it looks like she has botox in some shows. Then at the reunion she had her chest all hanging out. I felt like saying 'Honey you need to pull that top up and those bobos away.' She comes over very insecure at times.

Mashonda - ya'll let forclosure on your house? I just wonder how these couples hand handle their money.

Olivia - hmmm... I'm not too sure. She has the complete package but I think her mouth and personality may have played a part in her not getting far. It wasn't even the shows but the reunion that showed her up. And I thought if that is how you treat people Olivia I can see why you are where you are today'. As I said Olivia is the complete package till she starts acting up. Complete in that she has everything going for her - the look (she is beauitful), body and voice.

However and but. This is the big BUT none of those things stand on their own. Her voice does not stand out on it's own. There are plenty of girls who can sing like that and better. She is beautiful but doesn't really have a big stage presence to compenstate for other things. However together those units make it into a package. Now if she is nasty to others - she does not have enough TALENT to ride it. Nor has she taken all this time out to polish her voice to another level. She is still singing common hooks.  Her songs though meaningful to her they  are generic with common and predicable lyrics, rythmes and the chord progressions are a 'cut and paste' job.

She slags off/insults Samaya's game but she is really no better probably even worse off because Samaya has a presence due to her height. Samaya is trying to get recognised she hasn't been dropped from labels and living off past glory. J Records, G Unit etc are history for Olivia. She is now in the same space technically as Samaya.  Looking for a deal or waiting to make a record.

Growing Up Hip Hop Episode 6 Season Finale: A Question for Romeo- The Virgin Queen Angela or sexy Kristinia 'The Missing Kardashian Sister' DeBarges.

To my surprise I found this was the season finale, and I think due the lacklustre performance and lack of promotion by any of the investors or stars it may not be commissioned for a second season. Frankly when I found out this was the final episode in the series I thought it was an anti climax. Why? Well the cliffhangers were Angela's stalker who no one really cares about, and also Romeo driving away to have a threesome probably fake with Kristinia 'The missing Kardashian sister' DeBarge and her friend Ashley.
Oh well let's starts with my observations of this show. Will I be watching it again? I don't know. They even seem to having a reunion.

Def Jam and Phat Farm Founder Uncle Russell Gives Angela Simmons A Piece of Mind The show kicks off with Angela Simmons sprawled out on her virgin white bedsheets when Uncle Russ gives her a call for an update on the stalker situation. She tells him she’s made contact with the stalker. 


Uncle Phat Farm Russ goes crazy and yell…

Basketball Wives season 5 - Episode 4: It's all about Evelyn missing wife-headpuncher Chad and Tami seeking drama over what Shaunie said to Tasha Marbury. Suzie Ketcham says jaw surgery was to correct assault on her jaw used as punching bag by some unnamed ex of hers

This was show all about Evelyn 'Will-I-go-back-to-Chad' Lozada and Tami 'I'll-punch-you-in-the-face' Roman.  It's got to be the most boring Basketball Wives I've watched.  And it was so boring so I'll just cover some points and in no particular order. I hope it makes sense in some way?

UPDATE: NOTE: Tami confirms in her blog that her mother died at Tami's home surrounded by her family - that is Tami and her two daugthers who were with her when she died.

Evelyn continues to whines about Chad Johnson Ochocinco


Evelyn goes on and on about Chad Johnson Ochocinco till at some point I start to feel sorry for the man. This is too bad because I can't believe that I feel sorry for Chad Johnson Ochocinco. Never thought I would say this. POOR CHAD. Seriously, Poor Chad Johnson Ochocinco. I really do feel for him because it's like an nightmare that will never end. For him and for us. Evelyn too because she has that horrible gash on her forehead. No …

R&B Divas LA season 1 episode 3: Kelly Price, Chante Moore, Lil’ Mo, Claudette Ortiz, Michel’le and Dawn Robinson all go to Vegas, Chante Moore is all about female empowerment and self-marrage, Dawn Robinson reveals more about her hurtful and abusive marrage also struggles to have a child,Lil Mo and Chante Moore save the day singing at Boardway in the Hood.

This show is pleasant, honest and easy to watch. I think they have go the balance right in this case because I can see people like Chante Moore, Lil Mo, Michel'le and to some extent Dawn Robinson not standing for any behind the scenes rubbish - however time will tell since it's still early days.
These women are hungry  in a different way to the ones in R&B Diva's Atlanta. With the exception of Claudette Ortiz- these are very cast full of strong women and know their worth! I say that because Claudette Ortiz is the youngest by a good few years.

So given that the foolery that is Basketball Balls Miami will be starting with Tami, Evelyn Lozada and Shaunie O'Neil soon this is a good cool down show.

Lil Mo, Dawn Robinson and Claudette Ortiz bond over  'All we have being through' discussions.

It kicks off with Lil Mo, Dawn Robinson and Claudette Ortiz all discussing the monologues. Yada, yada, yada they keep on talking.


 For the hundredth time in the show Dawn Ro…
