R&B Divas LA Season 2 Episode 1: Meet the new girls Chrisette and Leela James.

I'm finally back, it's a long story but basically didn't have the time to watch TV anymore.

I watched it a little late and it was a little boring for my taste. Nothing really happened, I feel like saying bring back  Princess Double D Dawn  Robinson or Kelly 'Straight Edge, vaseline and timbo' Price. I need me some drama. I know it's supposed to be positive but there is only so much awesomeness I can take.

They all meet up and Lil Mo's wig just takes over. Blonde? It's more like a gold hat on her head. It just take over the whole scene. I don't know. Anyway Claudette's hair is nice and shiny. They just go over last season like a recap yada rape, sucide and getting beat up. Then they start on the start on about the so called 'sistahood'. Please. I wonder who is getting paid the most this time. Claudette seems to have more air time so I reckon she's getting more this season.

Anyway Chante invites the Divas to a listening session for Leela James - who I never heard before now. Cut to Claudette's house. Play date with Lil Mo. So Lil Mo drops she left her man. WTF. She work up one morning and wasn't in love? Really? I think this is a story line because how can someone be so fickle. I just don't get it so excuse me if I don't believe that foolishness. Geez. You know these chicks will do manythign for a dollar. Actueally best way is to see if he's still managing her.

So new girl Chrisette is boring. She is an amazing artist and musican but I'm sorry, yes I judging but she's boring.There is nothing interesting about her at all, sure she'd nice but still boring. Okay I guess I'm saying she had no attitude that will allow her to stand out. She started with Riahanna on Def Jam with Jay -z and was a budding singer. Even at that point she gave an interview to 'Sister 2 Sister' saying how Riahanna was a star and they never met. At the time I felt that was a little strange but I totally get it now. She is an amazing singer, song writer, artist but star quality she needs to dig deep for some attitude to stand out. Just me.

So some singing cut to Leela James. She has a nice speaking voice. Very sultry and smooth. Nice singing voice. So the listening session ends with one song to allow Claudette to pimp her poturong project.

Interesting persson Michell'e - happy things are going well for her. What is it with bow ties and jeans. Okay they are talking about her albums. She's going all Dr Dre on that - she can't give no deadlines. Michell'e is a diva you know but quietly one.

She also wants to start a sucide foundation. Okay. So she meets Don Consouls son's who has created foundation to help those in need of care. She calls it travelling. Her mother died, then her grandmother then straved to death so it left her down. She was in a bad way. It's good to talk. Don's son says it's good to let it out.

Leela James is a gardener. Okay.

Boring Chrisette comes on. Yes, I know she's a great singer but she needs a little more attitude. Her mother is a manager I can see the resemblance.

To be fair this episode was just to establish the project -these women singing at a Puerto Rico carnival gig. So interesting in some ways.

Nothing much,.

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.

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.
