2. Sinbad’s “It’s Just Family”: It took me a couple of episodes to warm up to this show, but I love it now. It’s a breath of fresh air from all the negative reality shows I see on television (not that I’m an angel when it comes to watching them). The show is positive, funny, clean and entertaining. Plus any show that makes me want to get up and exercise is a winner. Sinbad replied back to a couple of my Tweets. I exercised because of that episode where they went to that dance class, and he was the reason why. His tweets to me:
3. Grapefruit: For obvious reasons. Those things are delicious. I wash dishes with grapefruit dish liquid, drink grapefruit juice, eat grapefruits. I’m all about grapefruits!
4. “Jumping the Broom”: I saw this film on Mother’s Day and loved it. I’d seen “Fast and Furious” twice so far, and I loved this movie as much as that action flick but for different reasons. It was nothing like I expected—not stereotypical, loud, or over the top. All of the actors were playing different roles than I expected. I was just ecstatic to see Tasha Smith not being the loud, angry black woman; Angela Bassett doing a great job of playing a snob, which she seems nothing like in real life; Loretta Devine not playing the overly nice, sweet mother-like character; Mike Epps doing some serious acting in the middle of his hilarious jokes; and so on. I loved everybody in this film, and I can’t wait to buy it.
5. Kelly Rowland’s “Motivation”: I had no idea Kelly Rowland had a new song out until I read a blog about it on the Baltimore Sun’s Wesley Case’s page. (By the way, I enjoy his blogging.) I watched the video thinking three things: 1) Yes, this video is the sexiest song I’ve heard all year. Go Kelly! 2) I temporarily understand why Lauren London had a kid with Wheezy and why it took Toya so long to get over Wayne. What he lacks in looks he makes up for in wordplay. That cat said “finder’s keepers.” That was clever! 3) There was a scene in “2 Fast, 2 Furious” where Tyrese (who played Roman Pierce) snatched off his shirt, rolled it around his sleeve and busted his hand through a car window. Brian O’Conner (played by the equally gorgeous Paul Walker) then reached around him and opened the unlocked car door. He didn't need to take his shirt off, but I didn’t give a damn! I gasped when I saw that scene in the show and rewound it when the DVD came out. Same thing for Taylor Lautner when he snatched off his whole shirt because Bella scraped her face after she fell off the motorcycle in “New Moon.” I didn’t care. I rewound it. Why in the world Kelly has on a purple swimsuit is beyond me. I think she should have on more clothing, but I’m sure the fellas won’t agree. The swimsuit looks completely out of place, but then again, neither one of those scenes above made sense and I liked them, so guys, enjoy Kelly in her purple swimsuit.
Note: While I’m on the topic of Kelly, “Gone” has a cool video, but “Dilemma” is so much better. She’s interacting with Nelly more (dancing, singing, making crazy faces, dating, trying to run him over, laughing). Either way it goes, I love those two “working” together, but neither video compares to that “Cater to You” performance. Now that was the best! Should they ever cross that line, they’d be a gorgeous couple!
