The Things Celebrities Do…

Happy Friday, folks!  Let’s get right to the news because we have no time to waste!

First, can we talk about Kim Kardashian freezing on stage with Prince?!?!?  Ya’ll know I heart Kim K., but she embarassed me (well…really herself) when she got invited to dance with Prince ONSTAGE and froze!!!  Even if I didn’t have any rhythm, I would have faked it.  I mean, how many people can say they danced with PRINCE-ONSTAGE?!?!  But Kimmy redeemed herself when 2 hours later Prince invited her back.  This time she was able to dance.  And I should hope so.  She moves everywhere else.  And speaking of Kim K., can I just mention that I hated her Super Bowl Skechers commercial and the fact she was whining about her nipple showing in “W” magazine?  Yeah, whack commercial and whining for no reason.  Pressing on…

I am SO disappointed with Mark Sanchez’s “alleged” relationship with this 17 year old.  But I feel more for this girl, not because I think she’s innocent or anything of the sort, but because she can’t make up her mind if she wants the world to know she banged an NFL quarterback or if she wants to keep him her secret.   Mark should have known that it was not in his best interest to mess with some kid…and that’s exactly what she is.  I’m really torn on this situation because I feel like they were both in the wrong.  But I have to think if I had the opportunity to be with a multi-million dollar athlete at 17 would I do it?  Probably not.  I actually came across a professional athlete while a Junior in high school, and I let him pass me by…but that’s another story for another day.

So, Rihanna is lessening some of the stipulations on her restraining order on Chris Brown so they can have contact?  I won’t comment but you guys can…

Another thing I’m not touching?  The whole fiasco with former N.Y. Congressman Chris Lee.  But you guys can.

In case you missed the FLOTUS on the “Today Show” this past Wednesday, take a looksie here!  #WeLovetheFirstLady

Ok, I’m finished!   What do you guys think about this week’s news?  What did I forget to mention?  Enjoy your weekend, be safe, and I’ll be back on Monday! Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city!

Today’s Black History Month fact is about my alma mater, Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University!  (The # 1 HBCU on the HIGHEST of 7 hills!)  FAMU was founded on October 3, 1887 as the State Normal College for Colored Students.   Florida A&M is currently the only publicly funded historically black college or university in the state of Florida.   FAMU has such a rich history and continues to be one of the leading institutions of higher learning in the US to grant undergraduate degrees to African-American students.

My Obsession with Mark Sanchez

Happy Tuesday!  I hope you all had a great MLK weekend and were able to give back to your community in some way.  I had a phenomenal weekend, even though each day was busier than the previous one.

If you don’t know, I’ve started to get into enjoying/watching/learning about the sport of football.  It started about 5 years ago.  I thought watching the Jaguars games together would be a great way for Southern Dad and I to bond.  (Growing up, my sport was basketball, and bad-a$$ Latrell Sprewell was my man.)  Even though he gave me the side eye at first, once he saw I was serious, he actually started answering my questions and teaching me a little bit. (Yes, I know this story has absolutely nothing to do with my title, but just stay with me; I’m giving you backstory.)  So, this love for the Jaguars grew into a love of football.  Though the Jaguars will always be my team, I enjoy watching good match-ups, like the play-offs.  Last week during the divisional round, I was able to get a good look at Mark Sanchez, quarterback for the New York Jets.  Noticing he was a little cutie, I looked him up on Wikipedia to check out his story.   I shared with my soror @ISayWord, who is my football watching buddy, that he was 24, originally from California, single (the most important thing on the list), and enjoys going to plays on Broadway.  I was further impressed when I found out he gives back to his Mexican community by volunteering and speaking and working with kids.  It was after this research that I decided Mark and I will be married.  We can go to Broadway plays together, volunteer, and just enjoy life. 

Now, I have to admit I wasn’t going for the Jets last week when they were playing the Colts.  I mean, HELLO!  They were playing the Colts.  But to everyone’s surprise, the Jets pulled out a win!  And they surprised everyone again on Sunday by beating the Patriots.  I guess I should stop underestimating them, especially since I’m going to be Mrs. Mark Sanchez someday.  I told my mother last night about the marriage and that she was going to have Blaxican grandbabies, which was alright with her.   She asked if that meant I was going to be moving to New York, to which I replied, “Probably so.”

So, if you have any tips or suggestions on how I can meet Mark, I’m all ears.  I don’t want to get arrested, so nothing illegal folks.  Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city! 

P.S. I hope you all realize this is a little tongue-in-cheek/satirical.  But if I EVER have the chance to meet Mark Sanchez, I’m on it!
