My Rant for the Day

First things first- Can I say that I am beyond SHOCKED that news has surfaced Will and Jada have separated????  Yes, I know that I don’t know them, but let’s be real.  We hold celebrities to certain statuses in our lives, especially when it comes to relationships. weight, looks, money, etc.  And it seemed that the Smiths had it together-a beautiful family, talented kids, businesses, both were currently working.  I know more than a few of us thought that Will and Jada were the epitome of Black Love, right up there with Ossie and Ruby, Angela and Courtney, Bill and Camille, the list goes on.  I know it’s NOT going to happen, but we should leave the Smiths alone during this very personal matter. 

Next up, I saw “The Help” last Sunday.  While I appreciate my girls inviting me out and having a bang-up Sunday night, I really don’t know my thoughts on the movie.  I had no desire to see the film, but I didn’t have any plans (and they changed the time they were going just for me), so I decided to go.  “The Help” was an enjoyable film, but I don’t know if I liked it.  Honestly, I have to see it again before I can do a real Southern Girl Review.

I bought Beyonce’s “4” about a week after it came out.  I am probably once of the biggest Bey Stans there is, but I don’t think I’m a fan.  As I told a friend, I’m not a Ballad Beyonce fan (think “Listen”); I like more up-tempo, dance hits (think “Single Ladies”).  And since her newest album is more ballads, I wasn’t feeling it.  I have been listening to it more with the intent to give the album an honest listening to and determination in my opinion.  As of today, the jury’s still out. 

So, that’s my rant for the day.  No rhyme or reason, no logic.  Just my thoughts on some things that are going on in pop culture.  And for those of you who know how I feel about the Kardashians, I purposefully did not discuss Kim and Kris’ nuptials this weekend.  Until next time, I’m just a Southern Girl…in the city!

This Week in the News-I’m Not Feeling It

Happy Friday!  I have to be honest with you guys-I don’t feel like doing ANYTHING today!!! (And that includes writing on this blog.) Now, don’t get me wrong.  I love you guys, and I love writing, but I’m just not feeling it.  I want to go home, lay down, and take a nap.  To keep with the theme of “I’m Not Feeling It”, I’ll share some news this week of people or things that I’m not feeling.

First, let’s talk about Eva Longoria Parker filing for divorce from cutie Tony Parker.  Now, I must admit I didn’t think this marriage would last that long, but not because of infidelity.   I just didn’t think it was gonna work out.  And it looks like Tony cheated.  I haven’t seen the woman who is the alleged mistress but from reading people’s comments on Facebook, I think it’s safe to say the side piece wasn’t as pretty as Eva.   I will not use this post to talk about how or why men cheat on gorgeous women, but I will say it takes more than a pretty face to keep a man.   No matter what happens, I hope Eva and Tony find peace and happiness whether together or apart.

I’m not a Chelsea Handler fan, so I’m not that familiar with her jokes or her show.  As I was driving into work this morning, I heard a clip from her show earlier this week where she basically said Phaedra from “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” was living the “African-American” dream because she was an attorney and was married to an ex-con.  (To watch the entire clip, go here.)  It’s really in poor taste, but from what I gather most things she does is in poor taste.  And what is her obsession with 50 Cent?!?!

Uh, so I don’t watch “Dancing with the Stars” on the regular, but I definitely won’t be watching the finale now that Brandy has been voted off, and Bristol Palin is still there.  #thatisall

That’s it for me today, folks! What are some things you’re not feeling? Have a great weekend, and until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city!
