The Reality Called TV
We are lovers true and through and though
We made it through the storm
I really want you to realize
I really want to put you on
Ive been searchin for someone
To satisfy my every need
Wont you be my inspiration
Be the real love that I need
Im searchin for a real love
Someone to set my heart free
Im searchin for a real love
- "Real Love", Mary J . Blige
I have a confession. I am addicted to reality tv. I am one of the Americans who tune in to these shows, laugh and cry with the players, and pray for drama to go down.
Here is a questions for you? Have you seen Flavor of Love? OMG, why in the sam hell would a group of women fight over Flava Flav? Last season every one fell in love with Hoopz, darling Nikki, the actress/model who seemed like the most sane. Publicty for her career? Definitely...The hubby called her out far in advance..."Candee, I think that is the chick in King this month". Now she is being linked to everyone from T.I. to Dwayne Wade (yeah, read that on crunk + disorderly). On the season premier, he dismissed several girls for having their agents send them there to better their career.
So Flav is back for a second year, to find a "real love". Now did anybody happen to see the slim pickings for this year? A ghetto white girl who got her ass whipped over which bed she was sleeping in, a lesbian trying to hook up with other girls, a tattle tale spilling everybody's business, and a big girl that shits herself and the floor...all on the first episode! I have never seen so much multi-colored weave, gel, smoking curling irons and head scarves in all my life. There were times where I couldn't tell if I was watching VH1 or BET Uncut. Women dropping and wobbling, all to impress the Black Chiuaua...Doesn't Flav remind you of the little Taco Bell dog? You quiero hoochie mama. The worst part is, he get it from his mama!
Now for all of you who saw it, I have one question for you. How in the world could Somethin' have shit on the floor? She had to have on a thong to actually have shit a turd on the floor. And that makes it 100 times worse. How can she ever show her face in public again? But she kept it real. "My stomach got me fu*$ed up. I had to go." Now Flav is a good sport, he laughed it off and joked "If someone smells something funky, its me, because I'm the shit." That ho would have gotten the mop and the clorox and went to work on my marble floors.
I wish you the best of luck Flav, I'm rooting for you man. I'll be watching. Why can't I switch the channel? Beacuse we all wanna see folk on tv, more trifling than we are. That why "Cops" became so big. We love to see people at their worst.
Did anyone see that episode? Please Please Please give me some feedback on what you thought. If you didn't, set the DVR for it, Sunday's at 10 pm on VH1. Tell me something else, does this whole circus he has going on kinda leave a blemish on the positive messages Public Enemy construed in the 90s?
