Another season of BITCHASSNESS!!!

I didn't know this was scheduled to come back!! Especially since Diddy has his show on VH-1. Not sure If I can deal with 2 Diddy shows on air at the same time...

The Real House Wives of ATL

So I watch Bravo a lot. LOVE their reality TV shows. So they decided to do an ATL spin off of their "Real Wives of" shows. I'm not soo sure I'll be watching it. Go Here to view the preview "trailers" (the site that has the videos made it so that they can't be embedded. How whack is that....) Only watch trailer 1 and 2.

My issues are as follows:

1. You know how on the Dave Chappelle show he would spoof well known "Mainstream (meaning white...i try to be pc every now and then)" TV shows by doing a "Ghetto" version. Watch the first trailer (not the full 10 me after 2 min you will be sooo irritated you'll turn it off). Does it not come across as a spoof. The shit just doesn't seem natural. And by that I'm not referring to the possibility of blacks being successful and having money as not being natural. The way they are talking just seems super contrived and unnatural.

2. Look at the second video (again, its like 10 min, I promise if you watch the whole thing you will be frustrated. When they show the house does it not look like a scene from "Cribs"??!!! I'm sorry...but I've watched all of the other "Real Wives of" Seasons and I don't remember them dedicating so much time to show how those people were living. The detail is ridiculous. It's a it offending only because they make it seem as if extravagant living is a rarity. Almost as if they have a huge ass house in the middle of the projects. they NOT live in a community with other big ass house just like the folks in the OC???!!! Why do they have to "cribafy" it. Their not rap're business people like everyone else.

3. NeNe.....I mean her name speaks for itself. Like...who are the producers??? Do they not know that if you associate with anyone named NeNe its bound to be a ghetto experience. You can take the woman out of the hood but you can't take the hood out of the woman. ***shaking my head*** This is why we ain't neva gon be free....

4. "What I want out of this divorce is a lump sump...some 7 figures...." direct quote from the trailer...****sigh**** PRE NUP...thats all I have to say.

Folks, it looks like its shaping up to be a ghettofabulous season. It's a little premature considering the show hasn't aired the first episode but I'm going to go ahead and say that The Real Housewives of Atlanta is reason #5,013 why we ain't neva gon be free... (To be confirmed Sept 16 when the episode actually airs)

New Yorker...this doesn't help...

Why would they think this helps??!!! I realize and understand that the New Yorker is a publication for people that are of a higher intellect. Yes there are those of us who are educated and can immediately see that the cartoon is meant to satrize the ridiculous rumors that surround the Obama campaign. However, Average Joe Schmoe living in Kalamazoo with an 11 grade education won't see all that. All he'll see is tonight's news with the cover of the New Yorker. Is he going to pay attention to whats being said...probably not. He's just going to go off the visual.

Although the intent was suppose to be good, it's just a bit irresponsible on the New Yorker's behalf. They can't realistically say that they didn't know the controversy the image would cause.

This, to me, just shows how racially insensitive America can be. Kinda like when your in college and there is a kid who hasnt been around a lot of black people and says stuff like "yo yo what up" everytime s/he speaks to someone black because s/he 1. thinks its funny and 2. thinks thats how black people really interact. When in reality its offensive.

And I know there will be people that will say "This isn't a black and white issue. People are overreacting and need to get just see it as a joke. If Hillary had been the candidate and the New Yorker had an illustration of her on the cover it wouldn't be a big deal". To that I say think about it like this...Will the New Yorker create an illustration to satrize McCain? Or better yet, why didn't The New Yorker satrize McCain first? And can we just admit that americans aren't that bright. Think of someone like Bush looking at that. I doubt he got the joke at first glance. Just saying....

It'll be intresting to see this unfold over the next few days. Oh and I'm mad they have Michelle looking like a Neo-Black Panther....don't make no damn sense!!!!

Reason #5....and #6...

Thank you Jesse Jackson for confirming that we can never just be happy and supportive of each others success. The more disapponting side of this whole thing is that just when we thought there was finally a black leader to look up to and crush all the stereotypes, another black political leader has to step out and (as my mother would say) show his ass!!! WTF Jesse??!!! It's not like someone intercepted his phone call or someone happened to come across a stray email. Negro you are on LIVE TV!!!! SERIOUSLY...what's your life about. The song "Hi Hater" (youtube it) comes to mind when I think of the Jesse Jackson Obama relationship. Jesse is just mad that Obama has been able to do what he has always wanted to do but couldn't. Obama is living Jesse's American Dream. I'm sure that sucks. But damn Jesse...MAN UP!!!

Here's what he had to say for himself....
