Things That Make Me Say Hmmm…

Let’s see things that made me say hmmm…this week were:

1. Celebrities in Foreclosure:  Honestly, I don’t really understand how some of these celebrities can into foreclosure if they are claiming to have millions of dollars in the bank and successful businesses.  Now we all remember at the reunion show for the Real Housewives when Andy asked Lisa if the rumors of her and Ed’s house going into foreclosure were true.  And she said no that they just downsized to a house that they already own.  Well, leave it to Yahoo to dig up the facts.  According to them and Georgia court records, Lisa and Ed’s house did in fact go into foreclosure along with a few other celebrities.  Hmmm..why didn’t she just answer truthfully from the beginning?  You can’t say it’s personal because you were on a reality tv show about your personal life.  Check it out here.
2. MTV Shows:  Let me just say that I am very disappointed in MTV and the direction their shows are going.  Starting last year after Teen Mom started turning into a train wreck with Farrah still acting stupid towards her mom and then Amber abusing her ex boyfriend/daughter’s father, Gary, I pretty much stopped watching anything on their network.  As a mom and having had my grandmother, my sister and a few other relatives be victims of domestic violence I found it hard to sit there and watch that trash.  Yea, I called it trash.

Domestic violence is a huge problem amongst young people and that little fine print they put at the end of episode didn’t cut it for me.  I remember the days when MTV didn’t allow participates in their shows to be violent towards other castmates.  Now it seems like they encourage it.  I mean you have throw downs on the Jersey Shore, the Gaunlet, Teen Mom and now their new show Skins just takes the cake.  That show is legalized child/teenage porn.  And they have the nerve to say that they are just portraying the secret lives of American teenagers.

Hmm…bullshit.  MTV was in such a hurry to put out their over sexed up, drugged up version of Degrassi, I don’t think that they even thought about the message they were sending out with Skins.  After Taco Bell pulled their sponsorship and other companies threatened to do the same MTV decided to move the show back to a later time slot.  However, a later time slot does not change the target market of their show.  Just means more kids will be sneaking to watch tv when their parents go to bed to see a bunch of teenage/child actors smoke pot, drink Grey Goose and have girl on girl action.

3. Gucci-And no I’m not talking about the clothing label, but the rapper.  These nut went out and got an ice cream cone tattooed on his face!!  OMG!  What’s going on with the rappers these days?  Why can’t more of them be like Jay-Z, 50 Cent or Common?  When you achieve celebrity status, it is just manditory that you have to do better.

Getting a tattoo on your face isn’t really smart.  Let’s start with the fact that you’re putting a needle with ink near your eyes that you use to see.  And then there’s the fact that laser tattoo removal leaves scarring.  So, you’re either going to be old with a wrinkled tattoo or get it lasered off and risk looking like you have African tribal markings (which would be way better) on your face.  Check out a pic of the tattoo here.

So what things have made you say hmmm…this past week or even today?

    2. Yeah some of that stuff on MTV is too much. I have seen only the promos for the new show Skins and I am feeling sorrowful for what is going to be on TV when my kids grow up. It's all so trashy now. (But I do love my Jersey Shore now..Lol!)

    3. He is an idiot. He looks crazy and he will regret it in a few years. So whatever.

    @K.Rock-Yes, I am already setting the parental controls now.

    @Mimi-Oh lawd. Who would give those two their own reality tv show? Just something else to add to the destruction of Black tv shows.
