Do Pretty Girls Have Problems?
Before U start with the “O…U are pretty…you’re cute”etc. Let’s be clear. I am talking the GORGEOUS chicks, U know, the ones that get thousands of likes and retweets..the ones that have the perfect body, beautiful face, pretty hair..yeah those chicks. Yes, I know most times it is makeup, weave and sometimes, even surgery. But they are the ones that get the “likes” the retweets, the shares, the comments..the guys that are willing to do almost anything for their attention., almost anything to please them.
I just saw a few beautiful women I follow on post some gorgeous pictures. As I stared at their pics, I thought “Wow, how pretty she is!”;then wondered, does she have problems? I don’t mean the every day, run of the mill problems…I’m talking the type of issues that regular chicks like myself go through. I have no problem finding a man, never did. I know I’m not the bottom of the food chain when it comes to being “sought out”, but let’s face it., I’m no ones top either. I know for a fact if I looked like even half of these chicks, things would be much different for me. There would be more of a “I don’t wanna loose her” or “Damn she fine, I can just stare at her all day” type shit.
I know, shallow way of thinking…just my thoughts right now, and times when I don’t feel my “hottest”. Yeah, yeah, it comes from within, blah blah blah.
But let’s be real, those pics that are liked and shared aint coming from “inside”! That shit is all outside shit!! Shit that I wish I could feel even if for 1 day.
What would it be like to post a pic and immediately get retweets and likes and “Girrrrllll!! Yesssss!! Sexy!! DamnMa“….
Eh, wishful thinking. My body is no where what it used to be after 2 children, 2 C sections…age is setting in..normal life crap.
Yes, we know it comes from within, however, it comes from the outside too. And for once…even for one day, Id like 2 be Beautiful…just to see if pretty girls have problems too.
Wednesday, September 26 2018 was the Big Brother Season 20 Finale’!!
Your final 3:
I am still beside myself as to how/why JC made it to the final 3. He calls himself the house ‘puppetmaster’…(side eye)
Part one for the final HOH (Head of Household) was physical, Tyler told Kaycee he would let her have that first win and go head to head with JC…however, he won and it was up to Kaycee in part 2.
Part 2 was slightly physical and mental-although JC came close, Kaycee got the victory, which left her to face Tyler, as planned, in the final part of this HOH.
I have to say, this season’s finale was the most boring and the most rushed show to date. (it became clear why it was rushed later in the show) One of the parts I look forward to is the Juror questioning. Dr. (winner of Big Brother 2), questioned the houseguests from the jury, but it was boring and rushed.
The final competition for Tyler and Kaycee was a mental one. Both tied until the very last question, answering everything the same. It came down to a tie breaker where they had to guess a number-which Kaycee came the closest and won the final HOH. She then was faced with the decision to take Tyler or JC to the final 2. Kaycee chose Tyler. Many (including me) thought this was a big mistake and she solidified herself for 2nd place. I honestly do not think Tyler would have taken Kaycee to final 2.
JC was the final eviction, he joined the houseguests, stating that he remained loyal and always defended Tyler. Host Julie Chen Moonves used this time to catch up on the 3 showmances! Yes, 3!! Angela and Tyler, Haleigh and Faysal and of course, Bayleigh and Swaggy. Perhaps the biggest moment of the evening and why the show was so rushed, was the unexpected proposal from Swaggy to Bayleigh. Of course she said yes! However, social media was NOT happy with realizing this proposal was more than likely the reason for the ‘rushed’ show.
The final vote for which houseguest will win the first prize of $500,000 came down to Bayleigh-who many felt was bitter toward Tyler for her exit..needless to say she voted for Kaycee. I was very surprised Kaycee won! I thought Tyler would still get the votes, but I think their answers during the jury questioning (although rushed) swayed any undecided jurors vote. The last prize was for America’s Favorite Player , who I was for sure Sam or Haleigh would get. But, it came down to Brett, Tyler and Haleigh. America chose Tyler! Tyler was so overcome with emotion, he cried stating he thought “America hated” him. It even got to me and made me cry…it was the first time I saw Tyler and not the ‘Big Brother player’. Very humbling and a great way to end the show.
Julie Chen Moonves announced Big Brother will be returning for season 21, looking now for the next houseguests…she never stated though whether she will return as host, due to the allegations of sexual assault from her husband from women who came forward. (She has already stepped down from The Talk).
Celebrity Big Brother will return for season 2…details and date: TBA Big Brother is a CBS broadcast around the end of June thru end of September.
This year’s Emmy Awards had everything from clever comedy, diversity, standing ovations, a marriage proposal and arguably the best award show opening I have seen!!!
The Emmys’ opened with some of the SNL cast: Kate Mckinnon, Kenan Thompson, along with Rupaul, John Legend, Ricky Martin, Kristen Bell, Sterling K Brown, and a few others. They sang “We Solved It”-about diversity in Hollywood.
The SNL Emmys’ take over also included the SNL news anchors, Colin Jost and Micheal Che as host this year, maintaining their perfectly timed one-liners. Many critics didn’t think they did a good job, some even said they didn’t look “happy to be on stage”. Maybe because I am a die-hard SNL fan, I always stick behind them and don’t nit-pick at their jokes. After all, there have been many Emmy hosts that weren’t “great”, and did and OK job (which I will not name 🙂 ) However, the show itself was soooooo good, I didn’t notice any ‘dead spots’ or anything boring.
Michael Che did a “Reparations Emmy” segment, where he went to actors/actress like Marla Gibbs (Jeffersons) and Kadeem Hardison (A Different World) and presented them with Emmy’s they should have won..not sure if they got to keep them, but the thought was nice.

Every year the fashion magazine, Harper’s Bazaar throw an iconic party, celebrating artists-this is an invite only event where celebrities wear some of the most extravagant designs (some even provide entertainment by singing etc).
This year, celebs like Christina Aguilera, Kendall Jenner, Winnie Harlow, Kelly Rowland, Christie Brinkley, Paris & Nicky Hilton, Evan Ross & Ashlee Simpson, Justin Therox, Russell Westbrook, La La Anthony, Dapper Dan and many more of course, including the most the talked about celebs that evening, Nicki Minaj and Cardi B.
This is an evening to be beautiful, sexy, show off your designer’s outfits, network and socialize!!! Instead, what was highlighted were women of color, not getting along and being “ghetto”..(for lack of a better word). Cardi threw her shoe at Nicki and went to go at her, Security quickly responded holding Cardi back, while Nicki showed no reaction. Somehow during the altercation, Cardi wound up with a knot on her head (which some say came from a security guard’s elbow).
What grinds my gears is how this had to involve women of color, women in the rap industry, just women period at an upscale event. All this did was demonstrate the narrative that women can not get along. I only wish that Cardi did not refer to the “Love N Hip Hop” version of herself, but the beautiful, talented and now mother that she is. This should not have been the highlight of the evening.

Recently, at the Southwest National Primate Research Center,( http://snprc.org/ ) located in San Antonio Texas, 4 Baboons escaped. The facility holds over 1000 Baboons and these 4 were a part of a group of 133 males not being used for testing. There are walls that fold inward so the baboons can’t jump out; But these 4 clever Baboons rolled a 55 gallon barrel (filled with grains), climbed on top and got out over the wall and pass the fence.
The researchers however, quickly was aware, chased the Baboons, caught them and safely returned them to the enclosure. Many on social media felt like the Baboons were tired of being subjected to medical experiments, and was hoping the escapees weren’t found., however, in less than an hour 3 baboons were found-the 4th not long after on his own.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (aka PETAhttps://www.peta.org/ ), has found that since 2011, The US Dept. of Agriculture (https://www.usda.gov/ ) has cited the SNPRC many times for “animal welfare related issues” which included deaths from adults to a baby Baboon.
Hopefully, the Baboons and all animals for that matter, held in this place or anywhere in the world where they aren’t free, handlers will ensure love, comfort and safety.
Billions of people use and rely on Uber. I have never used Uber and have always for some reason been hesitant and this story didn’t help any.
Uber recently announced adding a panic button to the app in case of emergency, where riders can easily contact 911. A university law professor of Denver, Nancy Leong, used an Uber for a ride to the airport. However, the driver said he was, “taking her to a hotel” instead! Leong said the Uber driver would not unlock the doors despite her yelling demands for him to do so. She banged on the window and luckily, caught the attention of some construction workers. The Uber driver finally unlocked the doors but also got out of the car and walked towards Leong! Thankfully, the car began to roll (the brakes weren’t on) and the Uber driver got back in the car then got away.
The driver (who Leong stated did not look like the picture in the Uber App), has been suspended.
Uber is teaming with Rapid SOS, a tech-emergency response, https://rapidsos.com/ . Denver will be the first to acces this app this summer. This will connect the passenger to an emergency dispatcher and the location of the Uber driver will show.
According to the Denver post, last year the Denver Colorado Public Utilities Commission hit Uber with a 8.9 million dollar fine because over 50 Uber drivers with felony records or vehicle offenses were hired. This only solidifies my concern with Uber and why I still prefer Cabs!
One of the best female singing group of all time. En Vogue are reunited..and I couldn’t be happier!!
This union includes original members Cindy Herron-Braggs, Terry Ellis (my personal fave) and a new addition, Rhona Bennett. (the original members were Cindy H.B, Terry E., Dawn Robinson and Maxine Jones).
Their single Rocket, from their new album, (Electric Cafe’) made the top 10 on the Billboard Charts. Between 1997 and 2001, original En Vogue members Dawn Robinson and Maxine Jones left the group, word is because of “contract issues”- however, Herron-Braggs and Ellis stuck together. Newest member Rhona has been with En Vogue during the last 14 years, is a former Mouseketeer (member of Disney Mickey Mouse club).
Look for En Vogue to tour May/June with musical legends Keith Sweat and SWV.
Here’s the mail, it never fails.
It makes me want to wag my tail.
When it comes I want to wail…MAILLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!
My email ringtone. I was a big fan of the show…I’m talking before I even had children. I even have a Blue’s Clues teddy bear that barks when you squeeze his paw.
While Blue, the puppy was adorable, what made the show for me, was Steve…played by Steve Burns. He was cute, and had a child-like quality from his voice to his mannerisms. Steve left in 2002, (the show started in 1996) and was replaced by Donovan Patton, who did OK, but didn’t grab my attention like Steve, which made me stop watching. By this time, I had a two year old daughter who was alright with the switch and continued watching. Some sources say Steve left to pursue music, while others claimed he left because he was aging. According to Huffington Post, Steven actually did leave because he was aging, and going bald; “I left the show because it was just simply time to go. I was pretty much playing a boyish, older-brotherish kind of character on the show. I was getting older; I was losing my hair; a lot of the original gangsters on the show, like the people who created it, were all moving on to other careers. It just felt like time. I just had a gut feeling like it was time to go,” said Burns. (Huffington Post)
There is talk Blue’s Clues will return, possibly with a female hosting the show. While I’m all for a woman being in this position, I’d love to see Steve Burns come back :).
