Steel Magnolias: Re-Boot Commencing in 5, 4, 3 …

Standard

Who’s watching Steel Magnolias tonight? I’ve never seen the original, but I’ve heard a lot about it over the many years since it debuted in 1989. I’ve also seen bits and pieces of it on TV and I know a little bit about the story. However, I’ve never watched the original from beginning to end. I’ll probably watch this reboot tonight though, just so that I can participate in the social media convos!! LOL!! Oh, and, Adepero is my sister’s college friend … so, you know, gotta support ;)!!
Well, hope some of you will be tuning in with me tonight! Steel Magnolias airs at 9 pm EST on Lifetime!!

“Let’s Talk About Hair”

Standard

Did you watch “Reed Between the Lines” last night? The episode was called, “Let’s Talk About Hair!” It was all about the daughter contemplating relaxing her natural, curly hair (that she indicated she loved and gave her individuality) to attract a boy. I sooo want to learn how that episode came to the screen (wonder if I can get an exclusive;))!! I think that may be the first time I’ve even seen the topic of relaxed versus natural hair addressed in a sitcom! The one thing that bothered me was the way Tracee was flat ironing the girl’s hair though! It was like those TypeFAIL videos!! The girl’s hair was curly, she passed the flat iron over the section she was doing multiple times and pulled out a fine tooth comb!! I really enjoyed the premise of the show, but I watched that moment like, “NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!”  LOL!!

Did you watch the episode? If you did, what did you think of it?

Hair Crush Alert!!!

Standard

On Monday afternoon, Wei asks me if I can get off work early so that we can go to the city to see a viewing of the new show, Reed Between the Lines. A chance to see Tracee Ellis Ross, hair crush of almost every natural? How could I turn that down? But yeah, this is about all you are going to get today as it’s 6:47 a.m. and I’m supposed to be doing my sit-ups! So, here are some pics and I’ll try to give you more details and some GOC updates later tonight! But, check out the show tonight on BET at 10, after the BET Hip-Hop Honors (which I watch while on FB just to read and laugh hysterically at the running commentary)! It looks cute and they need our support to keep uplifting family shows on TV!!

  • Yeah, my hair was all oily with a pre-poo!! Banana clip bun to the rescue again!
  • Tracee seems so nice and funny. She had her hair in a simple ponytail with bangs. You should have seen her shoes!
  • Kanye West was in the house too! I was arm’s length from him, but Wei wouldn’t let me take a picture ;)!
  • Malcolm and Wei have been friends for a while. I really liked him. So genuine and smart.
  • Oh, oh, oh! And get this! Anna Marie Horsford (remember her from the Wayans Brothers? Love her!) was wearing a Sofistafunk skirt!

*Okay, I’m not going to get Abs of Steel in this morning, so I declare my intentions for Day 8 are to do it tonight and then C25K, week 1, on the treadmill.
