Real Housewives of Atlanta – The Blogs
Now we know how to get the Atlanta Housewives to write those blogs, just spread some lies about them. Kandi was quick to clear the air about her exact words when accused of saying that Kim wouldn’t be “holding no black babies”. Now Kim, NeNe and Cynthia have jumped on the blog bandwagon to ensure their stories are heard.
Tonight’s episode really aggravated me. So I have a lot to say!
See what I mean, they only blog when they want to clear up rumors or tell their side of the story…sort of selfish, no?
The ladies went to Africa, and because KJ was so young (2-months-old at the time) and Kroy was away at camp I obviously didn’t go.
Regardless of what Kandi says, I think Kim would have been on that flight if she could have been.
NeNe mentioned that I am materialistic and superficial, which I found funny coming from someone who says she is “very rich.” I love my Louis Vuitton, I love my YSL, and I will STILL die in Dior, but never have I boasted and made displays of my items in hotel rooms. I am very blessed and grateful to have what I have. I never take my things for granted, or the things I’ve been granted will get taken away.
It’s nice to see Kim thinking about being grateful, I doubt that God cares much about Kim’s Louis Vuitton but the sentiment is good.
Cynthia and Kandi seemed to think I wouldn’t attend the Africa trip because NeNe would stop me and I wouldn’t want to hold African children. Although Cynthia made the initial comment, Kandi co-signed, so she’s just as guilty in my eyes. You are supposed to be my friend, why are you agreeing with a hater? If Kandi believes I wouldn’t go to an African orphanage, then she doesn’t truly know me. I love children and always have. I love to take care of people, which is why I went to nursing school. Kandi says I am germaphobic, and yes, I like my house clean, and no, I didn’t want people around KJ his first few months, etc. But let’s be honest, as a nurse I have wiped many asses in my time, suctioned people, and held a basin when they were vomiting, so forgive me for being educated on all the germs that are out there, but there is nothing that a little hand washing can’t fix. “Germs” have never prevented me from holding a sick child, an adult’s hand, or walking into a less that sanitary place. End of story.
Kim’s nursing skills aside, I think she’d have made the trip and I think she’d have been just as introspective at that orphanage than any of these ladies were. I think that Kandi is holding her ground just because she’s stubborn and while she has legitimate reasons for her opinions I don’t agree, I think Kim’s eagerness to be on screen would outweigh Kandi’s reasoning. Kim wasn’t the only one feuding with NeNe, if Sheree could make the trip, I think Kim could as well. I think there would have been much more drama if Kim had gone.
In my eyes children in need are children in need. I have said this before, and I will say it till I die, I DON’T SEE COLOR, not with women, men, children, or adults. What they said was ignorant and rude. I do not need to explain that I am not a racist, because the people who know me know my heart.
I embrace all races, and if I didn’t, I wouldn’t be a cast member of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Need I say more?
I’m not a huge Kim fan but as I’ve said before, I don’t think she is racist at all, selfish and a bit stupid, sure but not racist.
All the talk about Marlo’s fashion… LOL! I swear, these girls are not smart! You can definitely tell who’s got extra time on their hands. Why would anyone care what designers you wear or where you get the money to buy them? Marlo wears designer, and I hold my own with designers myself, so it really doesn’t affect me the way it seems to affect these ladies. They say it’s all she talks about, but I find that strange. I’ve been around Marlo many times, and we talk about everything from family to relationships to fashion to business! It sounds like jealousy to me more than anything, because these are the same girls that were cool with Marlo!
I find it funny that NeNe says that these girls are not smart, what is she? Enough said about that! Who has extra time on their hands? Which one set up little displays of their designer shoes, purses and jewelry around their hotel room? Who helped Marlo and co-hosted a little late night pajama party? That is evidence of someone with too much time on their hands.
I’m sure that NeNe has had conversations with Marlo off screen about many subjects, no question but how can NeNe deny that Marlo talks about her labels every chance she gets? This is Dana Wilkey all over again! Jealousy? That’s funny coming from someone who picked a huge fight with Kim last season because she was beyond jealous that Kim was singing on tour with Kandi.
Let me take you back a few episodes. When Marlo was first coming around, she hung out with the Smalls! They loved her from what I could see. She was with the Smalls at the opening of Bar One where they all sat together and talked about me having a relationship with Charles…NOT! From what I understand and can see with these two good ole eyes of mine, they liked Marlo and were cool with her as long as she wasn’t cool with me!
You wouldn’t have to go back episodes if you’d blog regularly but we’ve beaten that to death. I don’t think the “smalls” had an issue with Marlo until they actually got to know her and she started bragging and setting up displays of her designer accessories. This doesn’t have anything to do with NeNe in fact, NeNe bringing Marlo along at the last minute the way that she did was pretty rude of NeNe yet the smalls handled it pretty well.
I met up with Marlo to talk about all the gossip that was going on with Charles and found it was unnecessary to bicker over lies! They dropped her because she was no good for the plan they thought they had. They were doing what haters do, being envious, conspiring, and trying to figure out a way to bring you down! They wanted so badly to have me and Marlo fight over a man I was NEVER involved with sexually! They were down with her! Yes, I’ve heard about Marlo’s past, and everybody has one. Some worse than others, but she treats me nicely, so I see no need to not do the same for her!
I will give NeNe much credit for talking openly with Marlo regarding Charles but I’m not so sure the other ladies were conspiring the way that NeNe thinks they were. The fact is NeNe did have one date with this guy and it simply didn’t work out and he moved on to Marlo. Sure the other ladies were interested in getting details and the dirt, it makes them big ole gossip’s, not envious.
As far as Kim not coming to Africa because of tension between me and her, it’s all lies. I’ve been in the same room as Kim a few times, and I give her nothing! I haven’t spoken to Kim in two years and have no plans to.
I think Kim agrees and she never said she skipped the trip because of the tension between “me and her” (grammar fun with NeNe) It was Kandi and Cynthia who decided that Kim wouldn’t go due to the feud. Kim didn’t go because she had a newborn at home. What do you suppose NeNe meant by “I give her nothing”?
The medicine man said my husband was a good man. I believe that! Gregg is a good person, which is why I married him, but a good man doesn’t always equal a good husband. I know what I’ve been through!
I think we can all agree that Gregg is a good man, not perfect but a good man. NeNe has dealt with a lot, we know he ripped her apart on the air last season with that radio flub and we’ve all heard the rumors of his cheating, which he denies. So will they move forward with the divorce? NeNe’s not talking but it’s not looking good for this marriage.
On to dinner with the Smalls. I said the Smalls’ boss was Kim. Miss Kandi didn’t like that, but she has no problem saying Cynthia changes her mind for me or Cynthia is my puppet. All of them have said that in one form or the other! Yes, I believe Kim is the boss of the Smalls, and I’ll say it again and again and again! That’s just my opinion, and all these ladies seem to have them. It’s only when I have an opinion that there’s a problem. Well there will always be problems then, because an opinion I will always have!
I’m not getting that Kim is the “boss” at all. In fact I think we learned that many months had gone by and that Kim hadn’t even spoken to Kandi or Phaedra and only briefly with Sheree. I don’t think there is a leader among the smalls, I think they’re all pretty equal and all friends, with the possible exception of Sheree calling out Kandi for her comments about Kim. I was a bit surprised that Sheree was seemingly showing some loyalty toward Kim while throwing Kandi to the wolves.
I notice that NeNe mentioned Cynthia being her puppet but she doesn’t deny it. It was right there on screen, Cynthia did change her tune when NeNe appeared at lunch. Cynthia does appear to want to please NeNe but I think it is more to ensure that there is no drama. Cynthia is quick to slam people who aren’t around (Kim and Marlo) then particularly in Marlo’s case, she sucks up to her face.
I like Cynthia and Marlo! We are all busy women, and it would be pretty hard for me to control people who lead such hectic lives. Besides, that’s not who I am as a person. I’m currently tri-coastal right now between Atlanta, New York, and LA. I just signed with a major brand and licensing company. I’m working on opening The L Lounge and getting various products on the market. I’m a lot of things at times, but one thing is for sure, I’ve always been the type of woman that stands alone, stands up for what I believe in, and doesn’t need validation from anyone! I’m a mom and a business woman!
I don’t think anyone questions that NeNe stands alone and stands up for herself, I don’t even blame NeNe for Cynthia’s behavior, it’s not about control, it’s about Cynthia choosing to keep the peace by saying and doing whatever she thinks NeNe wants her to say and do. Finally here comes the plugs for all of NeNe’s ventures:
Catch me as Coach Roz on Glee on Tuesday nights at 8pm on Fox! Tune in to see me on Let’s Stay Together this Tuesday night on BET. If you’re coming in or out of the Sacramento airport, visit my restaurant, Famous Famiglia. More stores opening this year!
I like Marlo. We are very cool, but we are not close. The most time we have spent together was in South Africa. Any time spent we spent together has been through NeNe. The two of them have become great friends and really connected. I am cool with all the girls (most of the time), but NeNe is the only one I talk to on a regular basis. I really don’t have a problem with Marlo, and like I said, personality wise, we are different.
Marlo loves fashion, and it seems to be a big part of who she is. I love fashion as well, but outside of my fashion school, fashion is not big priority in my personal life. I really don’t have an interest in talking about clothes, shoes, and bags all day long with Marlo or Karl Lagerfeld himself for that matter.
WOW, really Cyn? Does this woman really think that we’re buying any of this? She was thrilled that Marlo wasn’t able to join the Safari and she does not “like” Marlo, that is obvious. ”Fashion is not a big priority in my personal life”. Seriously? This woman was a fashion model, she runs a fashion / modeling agency. The fact is no one would be interested in fashion the way that Marlo presents it. She obnoxiously announces who and what she’s wearing and carrying, who would enjoy that? I don’t even believe that NeNe is ok with it! I think Cynthia is lying about liking Marlo.
I have no problem repeating any of the comments that I made regarding Marlo to NeNe (or Marlo) while on safari with the Smalls. I honestly didn’t think my comments about Marlo were a big deal. So what, I said that we have two different personalities and I don’t care to talk about fashion all day. That’s how I feel. What’s wrong with that? If I had felt like it necessary to discuss this with NeNe at the table, I would have. NeNe knows exactly how I feel about Marlo, so what else did I need to say. These ladies have had plenty to say about Marlo, so my two cents seemed “small” in comparison.
The problem with Cynthia’s line of thinking is that NeNe wouldn’t approve of Cynthia’s comments about Marlo and therefore Cynthia failed to repeat them in front of NeNe, in fact she completely changed her tune. This isn’t about comparing what the other ladies said about Marlo, and the fact that it was worse than what Cynthia said, it’s about showing loyalty to the “talls”.
I have never questioned where Marlo gets her money, her criminal past, or this 80-year-oldsugar daddy the Smalls seem to be so interested in talking about. I don’t care how any of the girls get the money to support their lavish lives, because it is none of my business. I absolutely do not have anything to prove to anyone, and I don’t wear anything on my sleeve. I don’t feel like material things validate me in anyway. My history and career speak for themselves. With my new business, expensive designer shopping sprees are far and few between. Thank goodness my best friend, Kithe Brewster, is a stylist and helps keep me together.
For someone who claims to “like” Marlo, she is certainly going out of her way to discuss her and to prove that she’s nothing like her at all.
Without question, Marlo rocks the hottest and latest fashions in this group! No one can touch her. While we may have a piece here and there, she is the walking (and talking) Gucciad! I think she even gets a lot of her looks straight off the runway. Fabulous! If you see me with an expensive designer look straight off the runway, please believe it came straight from a NY showroom and I’m wearing it for free. I have a family and a business to support. I can’t afford it, and make it a point NOT to act like I can. Marlo bleeds fashion, and I bleed The Bailey Agency School of Fashion!
More and more about Marlo, her entire blog has been about Marlo…what’s up with that Cynthia?
Next, I said I couldn’t PICTURE Kim in Africa at the orphanage holding African kids. I also said, “I’m not saying she WOULDN’T do it, I just can’t see it.” That’s just my opinion, like it was her opinion that my marriage wouldn’t last a year. Kim and I are not exactly best buds, we don’t owe each other anything. I really don’t care what Kim thinks about me, and I know she that she don’t care what I think about her.
Um…”she doesn’t care what I think about her.” (more grammar fun!)
Hello! I’m not her girl, Kandi is. So understandably Kim was not a happy camper when Kandi said her comments on the safari. I thought we were just having “small” talk. I could barely remember exactly what either of us had said by the time Sheree called to drop dime. So stupid! All of these girls have said all kinds of crap about each other, pulled wigs, produced free songs, and they still kiss and makeup. However I was a bit surprised that Kandi said anything that might piss Kim off, because I know they are best buds and go on vacations together. Anyway, I’m sure apologies have been made by now, and they have made up. I don’t think Kim is a racist.
Cynthia could barely remember what was said? Good thing Bravo was there to film it all, we heard everything that was said and so did you Cyn! Anyone know what “drop dime” means? I can guess but I haven’t heard that expression before. I’m sure you’re right Cynthia, they have probably made up by now but as they’ve both said, they haven’t been as close this past year as they’ve been in the past. I’m glad that Cynthia included that last sentence.
Kandi made it a point to say that she can see why people say I follow NeNe and have no mind of mind of my own. So I have managed by some miracle (without the help of NeNe) to have great success my whole life, have an amazing modeling career, start my own business, and get myself on the same reality TV show as the rest of the bosses, but I have no mind of my own. Come on now! We are all bosses, some of us are just bigger bosses than others. I work hard every day for mine same as you. You are a big boss for sure, and I applaud your entrepreneurial triumphs. Your successes are very impressive. Congratulations on it all! I have my own opinions same as you, and am far from being easily influenced. I say what I want to say, when I want to say it. I put myself in the drama when I want to, and I stay out of the drama when I want to. I follow NeNe on Twitter, and that’s about it.
I have some news for you Cynthia, Kandi’s not the only one who said that you follow NeNe but listing all of your accomplishments doesn’t really negate the fact that you did, in fact change your tune when NeNe joined the group. To some that certainly means that you don’t speak your mind when you want to, you speak your mind when the right people are around and you “stay out of the drama” when NeNe is around and might disagree with you. Saying that Cynthia “follows” NeNe certainly doesn’t mean that NeNe controls her whole life, and Cyn knows it, I think it’s obvious to anyone watching that you stay out of the drama not when you want to but when you’re concerned about NeNe or Marlo ripping you apart and being disloyal to the “talls”.
Project Runway All Stars by MichellefromNY
There are only two women left in the competition now that we’re down to the final six. They meet Angela at the UN headquarters. For the challenge, the designers need to design dresses based off of six different flags– Chile, Greece, India, Seychelles, Jamaica, Papa New Guinea. Each designer will select a flag and the colors and culture of the country will have to influence their look. Mondo won last week and chooses Jamaica. Michael chooses Greece. Mila choose Papa New Guinea for the color. Jerell chooses India. Austin chooses the Seychelles and of course mispronounces it. The designers sketch in the UN courtyard whilst playing with their flags.
They go to Mood, and not surprisingly, Kenley manages to find a polka dot print that inspires her Chilean dress. The designers go back to the workroom and Mila wants her design to be asymmetrical, modern, and predominantly black with red–which is classic Mila. Everyone takes a food break and Austin decides he can’t eat until he understands his design. He’s questioning his choice of the Seychelles because the primary colors in the flag is confusing him.
Everyone thinks that Greece is so up Michael’s alley with draping and Michael tells us in his talking head that he aspires to be like Marchesa. Joanna Coles walks in. She goes to Mondo and she does not know what country his flag represents. Umm, Joanna, you didn’t get the memo of which countries the designers will be designing dresses based on? Really? Anyway, he explains his sexy open back dress to her and Joanna asks him if she can wear a bra underneath. He responds negatively and Joanna sighs, oh so delicately in her prim British way of hers, and tells Mondo a stiff “good luck”.
Joanna goes to Jerell and she is concerned that it looks like a costume. She feels the sari idea is taking the idea literally, Jerell disagrees and Joanna wishes him a more disgruntled “good luck”. She goes to Michael and thinks the way it drapes is gorgeous. Joanna worries if it’s ambitious enough for him but then quickly wishes him and more hurried “good luck”. Do you think Joanna’s code word this season is good luck? Come on Joanna, you couldn’t think of anything more original? At least Tim Gun’s “make it work!” was original and exciting. A lousy “good luck” is brusque, simple, and has no emotional overtones. Where “make it work!” was commanding and exciting, “good luck” is dull and bland. Perhaps our dear Joanna could use a tip or two about branding as she seems not to understand its importance. But I digress.
She goes on to Austin and Austin explains his work. I am not liking the direction he’s going. The colors are off and look a little like pageant gone wrong. Joanna is bitching that he’s the third designer to not consider whether a woman will be wearing a bra with their designs, while Austin argues that his design will allow for a bra to be worn and peeked out. Upon hearing such blasphemy, Joanna destroys him with her British proper-code-of-dress-eyes and states, “no woman wants her bra peeking out! Are you mad?”. Well, Joanna, seeing as Austin thinks he’s a walking Jane Austen novel with that ridiculous mustache of his, I would say yes, he is kind of crazy.
Joanna moves on to Mila and Mila explains her half red, half black, half short, half long dress. Cool concept, and poor stuffed up Joanna is thoroughly relieved to see that a woman can wear a bra under her dress. Although, she is kind of condescending in her delivery. Don’t you know Joanna, being overdramatic on television doesn’t translate well? Tsk, tsk.
So Joanna check on Kenley and of course in-my-own-little-world-of-
Anyway, Joanna leaves and the models come in for their fittings. Austin waxes poetically how beautiful the blue contrasts with the skin tone of his model, but honestly, I’ve never seen an uglier color blue in my life. And my favorite color is blue. Mila really likes where she is at and knows the most important part of the dress is in how she finishes and fits it. It’s the end of the day, and the designers head back to their hotel.
It’s the day of the runway show, and all the designers have a ton of work to do. The designers are hustling, some lamenting on lack of time, others on not purchasing certain materials.
Runway time! Angela comes out in a chic drapey mulberry colored dress. Today’s guest judge is Catharine Malandrino. First up is Jerell. Oh my, he completely overaccessorized. The gold one shoulder dress with mesh details is actually kind of cool, but that green draped fabric to resemble a sari is far from cute. It’s way too literal and is not a good adaptation of the sari aesthetic.
Next is Kenley. Kenley’s dress is a long sleeved mini dress that is mostly comprised of the heart print (which looks like a polka dot) and is asymmetrically cut to reveal a ruffled striped pink skirt. I’m kind of bored with Kenley. This to me does not reflect the challenge at all and the dress uninteresting at best and tacky at worst. Kenley is kind of destroying my taste for anything polka dots. I feel like Kenley is kind of skating through the competition by doing her tried-and-true aesthetic and not ever pushing herself as a designer.
Austin’s dress is next and it’s awful. There are different swaths of blue tones that all translate as hideous to me and the pop of yellow in the center just makes this look read tacky and 1980′s prom dress. The construction is also pretty terrible with poor draping that looks as if it was tied together and not perfectly sewn and an overall unfinished look. Just bad.
Mondo’s dress is up next. It’s this fluid long sleeved black jersey gown that grazes the floor and avoids looking monkish with a sexy back cutout with a yellow and green alternating motif along the back to relate to the colors of the Jamaican flag. The effect is absolutely stunning. I’m in love with this dress. I think Mondo is going to be in the top three.
Next is Mila. Her dress came out amazing. It’s a half short black dress and half long red dress and another example of how to properly wear a one shoulder (or in this case, one sleeved) dress. It’s just so visually arresting as a dress and you cannot be a wallflower wearing a dress like this. The fit and finish is impeccable. I think Mila really nailed this challenge and she was able to really express her personality as a designer.
Last is Michael and his dress is a white grecian goddess dress that has such unbelievable draping. The dress just floats magically down the runway like a dream. I’m not entirely loving the blue ribbon detail at the neckline–it looks kind of like a pageant sash. The back is also a bit low in an unflattering way, not exactly sexy. The average woman would not look good in this dress, at least from behind.
Judging time. Kenley is up first. Georgina likes the attitude of the dress, that it’s young and youthful. Catharine doesn’t like that she didn’t go too far with the idea of Spanish dress. Isaac loves the spirit of the dress. Isaac also warns Kenley not to do this kind of dress again, in a classically condescendingly Isaac way. Finally! The judges are catching on to her copycat behavior. Dun dun dun. Unfortunately, I don’t think she’s on the chopping block this week.
Next is Jerell. Angela likes the modern white stripe down the arm. Isaac can’t get over how rumply the stripe gets on the arm and that it’s a little wonky. Catherine doesn’t like how the green draping conceals the cool bustier dress underneath. Georgina thinks there’s too many ideas in the dress.
Next is Michael. Georgina is on the fence over this dress, she loves the draping but can’t get over the pageanty feel. Catherine thinks the draping has been treated with too much volume. Angela thinks the blue bow on the dress would look better on a christmas present. Isaac thinks without the trim it would have been better.
Next is Austin. Georgina thinks it’s a pretty dress but is concerned about the color choice because it doesn’t match the colors in the flag. Isaac thinks the rucking looks tortured. Angela doesn’t think it’s the worst dress they’ve seen that season. Seriously? It’s hideous.
Mondo is next. Georgina loves this dress.Catherine thinks it’s well cut, but doesn’t like the way he did the hair. Isaac loves that he used this black matte jersey and it looks like a new textile but doesn’t like the back with the in-your-face green and yellow. Seriously?? I think Isaac is losing his touch in the taste category. He’s in love with Austin but doesn’t like the tasteful pop of color (which is really in right now) at the back? Truthfully, I haven’t liked his designs of the past few years so perhaps he’s losing his touch or it’s just me.
Last is Mila. Georgina thinks it’s really great. Isaac thinks it looks communist. Seriously Isaac? What the heck is up with you tonight?? Angela is bothered by the one side is long and the other short with two different colors. I feel like Angela just copies whatever Isaac says. She has yet to disagree with him on the show, while Georgina the beautiful brit, has the on-point comments and often disagrees with Isaac. Interesting.
The three favorites are: Mondo, Kenley (seriously?), and Michael
The least favorites are: Austin, Jerell, and Mila (why?? hers was way better than Michael’s and Kenley’s)
The winner is: Mondo. Hooray! He definitely deserved the win. Loved that dress.
And the person going home is…Mila. WHAAAAAT???? She went home and Jerell or Austin?? I feel like these judges have no idea what their doing, it’s kind of pissing me off. Allstars? Please. If you want an all-star show, get better judges.
And so, with Mila’s departure, we have lost another woman and Kenley is the sole one left. I do not think she has what it takes to win. But who knows with this pack of judges.
Thanks Michelle, great job as always! Lynn~
STOP! In the name of love, before you brake my heat. That is pretty much the best way to sum up each of the three separate occasions I have appeared on the hit Fox show, Glee. I have decided to write a two part blog about my Glee experience for y’all, due to popular demand obviously. Can I be totally honest first? I really didn’t see why anyone would care. Once I edit out all of the lovey dovey mushy romantic stuff, it’s tragically boring. I’ll get to the details of the shooting here in a second, first I’ll get the sickening love sick teenage girl crap out of the way. The details of this person and all that jazz will stay private, sorry, only WSL knows what they are…you will have to beat it out of her. Diana said it best really, it’s the only way I can explain all of it to you. If you haven’t figured out what I’m talking about yet, you may want to check yourself boo.
Now, I will highlight one of the three episodes I was in. Let’s start off with chatting about last season’s prom episode. Yes ladies and gents, I went to the prom. To be even more clear, I went to the longest mother fucking prom in the history of drunk teenage sex. You see, it took us- being the cast, crew, etc etc- 40 hours over a span of 3 days just to shoot the one prom scene! If you thought your bunions hurt, think again hos. For 3 long days I wore this horrid prom outfit, danced, and had to pretend to gawk in disgust when a male student won for prom queen…yes that was queen, you read it right. I’m sure at this point y’all are wondering how I was able to land myself on the set, well, have you ever seen that cover of Entertainment Weekly that showed two of the most influential characters on the show wearing Warbler jackets? I basically look identical to those two, it’s freakish really. You may also know that Glee shoots at Paramount studios? My former office was also located at Paramount studios, and if you don’t believe me I will be more then happy to flash you my badge. One of my strongest qualities happens to be my razor sharp social skills…mostly meaning I’m a lunatic who makes Bethenny look sane and people think I’m interesting to talk to. Yes yes yes this is a round about way of explaining, do you get it yet though? I can’t explain any further so I’m really hoping y’all are reading this before a few cocktails.
Anyway, the days started every morning at 7am, with my booty freshly planted in the hair and makeup chair. I grew to love my hair and makeup girl, Kesnia. She was Russian and as you know I speak fluent Russian…so voila match made in heaven. We would do a rehearsal and then BAM it was prom time kids. During the majority of the filming I was lost in the beautiful words coming from a particular individual, never have I been so captivated just by the presence of this person. When it would be my time to step up and the scene, I essentially was playing myself, all we had to do was make eye contact and I somehow gained all the confidence in the world. Ok, didn’t I say earlier that I was going to try to cut all the love bull shit out? Sorry, y’all I tried, but now writing this I see that it is pretty much all it was… OOPs. I will say this though, because of the Glee prom, I will never again be able to listen to the songs Jar of Hearts and Friday. Try listening to those songs for 40 long hours straight and then get back to me.
The days got extremely tiring to say the least. On day 3 of hour never ending prom, I had to tape a segment for the Doctors before having to tape Glee. That meant I had to be live taping the Doctors at 4am and be on the Glee set by 7am….ouchie. That was a bitch.
The double whammy in the filming was, I could never escape my infatuation. That’s because my infatuation lived and does live right next door to my place up in Laurel Canyon, oy. Remember in previous blogs I mentioned “the love I loved the most” “I miss Laurel Canyon” … All coming together now? The next Glee blog I will go into the actual process of filming and what it is really like to be on set of a monster show.
As for now, I’m ruling NYC. I am bumping all over the city from one photo shoot to another, lunch meetings, dinner meetings…and making some good cash-a-rino to boot. I’m planning two more absolutely fabulous events, that people will be dying to get tickets for. All that aside, I’m blessed with the best friends on the face of this Earth. Every night during my prayers I thank the lord for giving me friends that I consider to be family forever. Of course I thank him for them after I thank him for He Jong Liam aka Janet, my maid.
Before I go start writing part 2 of my glee blog, you know, the more adult and coherent version. I want to address one thing. I know it has been said that my relationship with WSL appears demented. Well, it is far from it. I think the people making those claims are just jealous of a very strong ever lasting friendship. I am not even going to bother listing the countless amounts of people who have a relationship with this dynamic. If I did not have WSL, Lynn, and Carly I would not be the person I am right now. Those three ladies have changed my life forever and I consider them my real true family..we are in it through the good and the bad for the long haul. Just yesterday, I had a health scare when my blood pressure shot up, well, WSL had me come over and settled me down. See what I mean? I’ll say it one more time… WSL, Lynn, and Carly are my family and I will not have any hater telling me my relationships are anything less then a blessing from Jesus Christ.
Now, you will have to excuse me, there is socializing waiting to be done… that is my best quality after all. Plus, writing this was kind of like a stab in the chest….ya dig?
Is there anything our Michael hasn’t done? Yes, he’s just 19 years old but he seems to have had the experiences that many won’t achieve in a whole lifetime. Thank you for sharing this with us Michael. Lynn xoxo

Are you afraid of mixing prints? Don’t be! Here is a foolproof method to do it with flair: 1)The easiest way to mix prints is by combining a printed top with a printed skirt. Printed pants can look costumey. 2)”Match” prints by finding a color on each that is the same or similar to one another. This will ensure that the prints will feel like they go together and was done intentionally. 3)The prints should not be the same size on each separate. For example, go for big dots on top and tiny bird prints on bottom. Also, wherever you decide to put the big print, that will be your focus, so don’t put the big print on your bottom if you want to de-emphasize a big booty. 4)Experiment! As with any new trend or style idea you try, you have to experiment until you make it your own. And once it’s your own, well, then, you will rock it!
