What I Missed Last Week

Even though I touched on a lot of things during last week’s “This Week in the News”, there were a number of things I failed to mention.  So today’s post is going to cover those topics and my thoughts on them.

Even after the issue with Rihanna, I was still a Chris Brown fan.  He admitted his mistake, took anger management, and took his punishment.  (Plus, if we can forgive R. Kelly and Michael Vick, why is Chris Brown different.)  And let’s face it-the boy is uber-talented!  So imagine EVERYONE’s shock when C. Breezy lost it on GMA with Robin after she asked him about Rihanna.  (If you didn’t see the video of the interview, watch it here.)   IMHO, I don’t think she went in that hard.  Chris needs to learn to control his temper.  And someone made a really good point-Ike got questioned til the day he died about his hitting Tina, so Chris isn’t going to be any different.  If he didn’t want to address it, he should have told Robin that when he got a preview of the questions.   Unfortunately, this is going to be following Chris as long as he stays in the limelight.  I am anxious to find out what will happen on his appearance tonight on “Dancing with the Stars”. 

About 2 weeks ago, I mentioned that Carmelo Anthony may have a love child in NY.   Well, my girl LaLa went on Charlamagne’s morning show to address the rumors, how she’s done with having kids, and discussed some other things.  One thing that I can say about LaLa is that she always stays professional and diplomatic, even when we think she should throw people under the bus! 🙂

Lastly, after a bitter divorce and a long custody battle, Dwyane Wade won sole custody of his sons.  As I stated in a previous post, we shouldn’t necessarily applaud fathers who are in their children’s lives, but I will say I’m glad he fought for his sons.  How many men, especially professional athletes, fight for SOLE custody of their children?  Not too many I know.  And the good thing is that Wade wants the boys to have a great relationship with their mother, so I hope they are able to be adults and co-parent.

That’s it today, folks!  What else happened last week that I missed?  Or what’s happened in the past few days that you want to share?  Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city!

PS Can I say I HATE Chris Brown’s blonde hair?!? UGH!!!

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!
