My Guiltiest Pleasure

I watch the Bad Girls Club. There, I said it. And not only do I watch the Bad Girls Club, I love every minute of it. This was not like my Flava of Love phase (where I watched with barely concealed confusion and disgust.) Nope, I love The Bad Girls Club and I watch it because these girls are insane. And they're not in this house battling over some washed up rapper (sorry Flav) or trying to win a modeling contract. Nope, they're just there to be bad and the audience is there to guess who gets kicked off first for fighting. (Hey, Portia, I miss you.)

This is the fourth season of the show and while last season's girls were my favorites...This season's girls have grown on me. Mostly like a fungus but they've grown. Here are the girls I like: Portia, Flo, Natalie, and Annie. Yep, that's it. I know Portia's not there anymore but she was my favorite. Portia, Flo, and Natalie are all loud, in your face, I'll knock you out kinda girls. if they have something to say they say it to your face. Amber and Kate, well, not so much. And Annie well, I'm not actually sure why she's not on The Real World. She's not loud, she's not mean, vindictive, she's not bad at all. But then again maybe she has a slow fuse and it takes her a few weeks to heat up.

So, as far as I know, The Bad Girls Club isn't scripted. Well last season, the girls said the producers told Tiffany to play the peacemaker... Anyway, it seems these girls are honest, too honest. Which brings me to Kendra... How can you actually say that you're not sending Natalie home after she punches you in the face because you need her connections? It's one thing to use someone, but to say it out loud to all the girls in the house? And Natalie...don't buy your friends. They don't last and there's no warrantee. And really, Kendra, Miles from Moesha? I can't deal. I keep expecting Moesha and Niecy to interrupt their hot tub time with a lecture about safe sex.

Coming up: Flo and Amber get into a fight and I pray Flo wails on her. Here's hoping one of the former Bad Girls stop by. I wanna see Kate go toe to toe with the original Boston, last season's Whitney.

A New Decade? Wow!

Happy New Year! Wow it's been about 4 months. Bad bad bad. I know! I was inspired to write this post by Alex of Alex's Blog-A-Zine. So if you read this, thanks Alex! Anyway, I did see I Can Do Bad All By Myself and I was shocked by how not bad it was. Sorry, that's the best compliment I can give Tyler Perry, I tried and that's all I got. And I downloaded Whitney Houston's CD and I like it...Because it's Whitney and I'm a fan. But I miss old Whitney. You know the one that hit those crazy notes. Her voice is kinda husky and throaty on her new album. But I'll take what I can.

So since its 2010, I've noticed a few crazes that make me wish for things from 10 years ago. Like this whole Twilight/Vampire Diaries/True Blood craze. Does anyone else miss Buffy? You know the Vampire Slayer? When most vampires were bad and Buffy killed them with her awesome skills and witty banter? Aah the good ol' days.

Now when it comes to music I am all about Trey Songz. But remember when R. Kelly was the king of R&B? What happened Kells? Oh, yeah you peed on a few girls and we all turned on you. And in turn it seems he may have lost it after Trapped in the Closet Part 97. And what's up with Usher? I mean does anyone remember 8701 and Confessions? Now he's just dropped off. Way off. And where did all the girl groups go? I miss TLC, Xscape, En Vogue, SWV and Destiny's Child. And don't get me started on boy bands. I was never into Pretty Ricky or Day 26, but if I didn't love me some B2K... I can't stand Omarion, though. I wonder why?

Well these are just my ramblings. I've gotta go, there's a Buffy marathon on and I'm missing my tween years. Love ya and enjoy the New Year!
