    S04.E15: Nobody Else Is Dying

    Please, Simon threaten Mickeys existence by threatening to send her to jail. It's kill or be killed. People stuck on his damn orientation, and I don't care in this case because he threatened her with her freedom end of story, she fought back. Who told that fool to follow them upstairs? Who told him to point another person's gun at them, which he stole out of her bag. Whatever, it's his damn fault that he's been sentenced to now live life in the closet. Bye Simon, just bye.

    Asher is a cheater, he was messing around with some girl we never saw when he was with Bonnie . She confronted him about it. She wanted to know why he started to stand her up and that's when they discussed some girl he was messing with.

    And that's the issue here. Not that the black girl Is morally compromised as someone else posted, Asher murdered an innocent woman in cold blood, they all cheat, they all cover up murders, you name it. The issue is that Mickey not be judged any harsher than the rest who have done about the same or worse. Stop looking for her to do the right thing Or be some voice of reason. I'm ok with that evil gleam she gets in her eyes, it's scary and you hardly ever see a black female character playing that angle. They're the friend, sexless, and annoyingly morally superior and that's BS. Poor Simon my ass. She's right he would have held it over there heads. I actually think she's worse than Anna because she's had to be, given how she grew up. Anna at least had a loving mother and a sister she seems close enough to. Her home looked nice despite her pervy uncle who messed with her. Meanwhile, given Mickey's start one would say she never had a chance. Asher is right she needs to give in to who she is, own it and NEVER apologize for it.

    Race & Ethnicity on TV

    I didn't forget it, I mentioned her trashing Oprah at the beginning of my post and failing to play the Hollywood game of going to promote the movie Precious. Gabourey Sidibe had less than Monique in terms of her own money and resources, and nothing to wear as Gabbie has mentioned in her autobiography which is awesome by the way, and she took her ass wherever TPTB asked her to go and guess what? She stays employed, Lee looks out for her. You gotta play the game. Monique, is crazy, because at that point she wasn't shit in Hollywood in terms of being mainstream and she was first a comedian, that's where she was buttering her bread. So if you want to enter into a new field you have to pay your dues. And true, not everyone pays their dues, but a lot of folks have to so... She went off on Oprah about something that I do believe Oprah pulled on Mo. I do believe Oprah and her show pulled some shit on Mo, that they thought would of course be good for ratings, but might help Mo and her family out. But it was as much for ratings and you don't play with someone's sexual abuse. So the story goes, Monique suffered sexual abuse at the hands of her brother. The Oprah show decided to bring on Mo's parents who she doesn't talk to because I figure they took the brother's side and didn't believe Mo. Oprah of all damn people should know what it's like for your parents, your mother not to believe your claims of being sexual abused by a family member, since that is exactly what her mother did to her. I remember she had her mother on the damn show to talk about what went down in her family and asking her mother in front of millions did she regret not believing her. So for her and that show to pull that with Mo was awful. That being said, Mo said that she had confronted Oprah about this at a party that Oprah invited her to with a bunch of other black actresses in the industry and she, Mo, said that Oprah had apologized, but that she claimed she didn't know her staff was bringing on the parents. Wait no, she didn't know that Mo didn't know that her parents were going to be on the show. Yeah Oprah, bullshit, I love Oprah, but no one is a saint to me, even Mother Teresa, LOL. I'm sorry, we are all human and all exhibited unattractive behaviors from time to time or very often. Oprah pulled this shit on Mo for ratings and gave a half ass apology with that I didn't know nonsense. And that as far as I'm concerned, is at the root of Mo's anger toward Oprah and she has let it spill over into her behaving unprofessionally when it came to promoting that movie Precious. And even more importantly, her husband gets all my side eye, she needs to get rid of his ass.

    Yeah, Wanda does have crossover appeal, coincidentally she use to write for Chris Rock's weekly show on HBO back in the day. I've seen her audiences and the one's I've seen look majority white. But the question is how big are the arena's shes performing in? How much money is she pulling in for her shows. If she's not pulling in the big bucks for her current work, then Netflix can justify paying her less. But given her work behind the scenes in the industry, lower than 500k seem way out of line, that's too low.

    Race & Ethnicity on TV

    Before Mo'Nique went off on Oprah, before she decided not to play the Hollywood game of movie promoting for Precious, she was well known at least in the black community as one of the four queens of comedy. That's how I know her, she's a queen of comedy. So in the world of black comedy and black female comedians, she was it. The difference between Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock and even Kevin Hart is that those men have sort of crossover into the white folk territory when it comes to their audiences, particularly Chappelle and Rock and they have very diverse audiences and have most definitely had more success in tv and film when it comes to their projects. So yeah, they deserve more money. But Mo'Nique had definitely made it as far as black female comedians go. I wouldn't say she deserves the same money as the guys I've listed or Schumer and NOT because I think Schumer is a better comedian, no she isn't, at least not for my taste. Schumer has her moments, but please, she's not all that. But Schumer has had more, um, consistent success in her tv and film projects and she is more currently visible, so yeah, she should get more.

    I know it's a style; I know it's suppose to look like that. I didn't imply in my post that I didn't know it was a style. My post was about folks bitching about her hair not looking "royally"done. I have no idea if they know about this style. But I also stated that it looks like mostly the haters bitching and for those evil folks, nothing Meghan does will ever be good enough. I'm loving their misery though, they are so very pressed. Now, why should she pay? That was my overall point. If the palace starts bitching like the haters about her not having "royally" styled hair buns then they should provide her with a hair stylist. The money should not come out of her pocket, especially if she does an engagement or more per/wk. When she was an actress, specifically for red carpets, that is not money that she had to she'll out once a week, there aren't red carpet events once a week throughout the year. So yeah, she could pay for it. Now, if they're going to be rolling her out on the regular and want her hair to look royally done, they need to get her a stylist.

    From Across The Pond: Royal Weddings and Scandals

    Yes, and I see folks on boards who are the haters for the most part, so nothing Meghan does or will ever do will get rid of that kind of hate they have for her, but they keep commenting on her messy bun for example. Now I'm going to guess that because she is not officially a royal, they haven't shelled out any money for the kind of assistant who would be at her beck and call to do her hair and make up. Because I don't believe Meghan knows how to do her hair, because she hasn't had to for at least a decade. She had hair and make up done for her on the set of the tv show Suits for years now where she spent like fifteen hour days. Those actors put a cap on their heads and head out to the set and get hair and make up done there for them. And when she has had any red carpet event I'm thinking she gets a makeup team for that particular event to get her ready. But I don't buy for one minute that she has someone like Kate and even Camilla may have to do her hair and make up on a daily basis. She has the security team, and it seems like an assistant, but that girl doesn't look like she's the hair and make-up assistant. I think at this time, the royals can't justify shelling out money for wardrobe, hair and make-up. Not that Meghan needs any help with make-up, she can do her own make-up, if she must. She's done make up tutorials, she knows how to apply make-up. But for some reason I don't see her being able to do her hair so that no hair is out of place. Could she pull off a decent pony tail? Maybe but...Point is, I don't think she's getting the allowance that Kate and Camilla are getting for hair, make-up and wardrobe yet, so she's doing her thing, keeping elements of that California girl that she is. If they want that to change sooner rather than later, then they need to get their people on her service to do her hair so that no hair is out of place, you can't expect her to do it, sorry. Like I said, I don't think she's capable of doing all the neat proper, royal styles to her hair and that includes a neat bun. She's got a lot of hair and it's thick even with the blow out, it's naturally thick and curly. A blow out just temporarily straightens the curls out a bit, but all that hair is still there in its thick glory and she can't pull up all that hair by herself so that it's royally neat, nope. And she's on video saying she has a lot of hair heck, you can see it in the childhood pictures. There's one with her in these thick glasses, and the hair is all the way down her back, thick and everywhere. You can see that long thick mane again in the picture her ratchet sister keeps peddling with Meghan leaning on her shoulder, hair, think, long, unruly, just everywhere. Which by the way, I might add, is great odds for their future children's heads of hair, because with Harry's hair genes, they're going to need a lot of help, and hope. That head of hair Meghan's got presents much hope, LOL. So, if they want her to dress and wear her hair in neater styles like Kate or similar to, then Charles is going to have to write a check to allow for that wardrobe and hair stylist to be purchased. But again, she's not full fledged royal yet until (insert time) on May 19th 2018. Until then, she's doing the best she can. She's probably wearing that bun because she's been to at least two events that involved kids and she wants to be hands on. You don't need hair falling all in your face when your going to be hands on with kids. Not to mention, the rain there, it rains a lot there doesn't it? Mist, fog, that's not good for the frizz factor when it comes to her hair, so she just puts it up. I get it. At any rate, I'm pretty sure she's getting notes after each of these events on how she does, because I saw one adjustment she's made and it's to that hand wave. She's brought in it in, her elbow is lowered and it seems a little mousier when she waves.

    This was adorable and him saying release her she's mine, good lord. It was cute and hot at the same time. But then I felt a bit of caution, because while he was being funny, he does strike as someone who could get a little bit possessive and controlling. I mean the situation of just being in that family lends itself to being controlled. But Meghan and Harry are not only cute, they ooze hotness. They're just hot. He leaned over and was whispering something in her ear at their latest outing and she has this coy smile on her face, it looked so hot. They cannot keep their hands off each other in public so one can only imagine what the hell goes on behind close doors. I won't compare Meghan and Kate, because I hate comparing women. I will just say that Kate is going to be queen and William king, so both of them have carried themselves with that in mind. I do think that both of them are more introverted, but I think they know how to have good time as well, they just can't let loose like Harry and Meghan.

    I'm here for this, good actors in it and I'm happy for Jerrika Hinton after Shondaland royally fucked her over. Oh the diversity, now I just have to check out that the representation is on point, because that's the real key. Because you can stick as many faces of color as you want on my screen, but if their characters are over in some corner somewhere with two damn lines and no center story ever, or if the story they have is the usual stereotypical one then you're not representing and you're not fooling this viewer.

    I know it's not possible, but I feel like I want them to just run away somewhere and get married, because of all the hate. People's weddings and births should be happy occasions, a bride should be happy, and if you can't be happy for her/the couple then just go away. I'd bet big bucks that, that is exactly what Harry would want if he could do it, for sure.I'm glad she closed down her social media sites, although, she had to, they aren't allowed to have their own private social media pages.

    This too, because I just added to my previous post, that Harry knows a thing or two about having substance abuse problems and getting in a bar fight when I was talking about Meghan's brother, who for the most part, has been far, far less evil and hateful towards her. He just seems truly very weak to me because I think he genuinely has substance abuse problems, but he has yet to call his sister selfish or anything else. And this last comment, was out of line, but I didn't think he was hate/ blaming his sister for his drunken fight with the fiance' I thought he was saying he couldn't take the spotlight on the family. That being said, I'm going to call his weak ass out on that, because if he'd just shut up entirely, there wouldn't have been the continued spotlight on him. STFU like your father, don't even say anything good to the press, say nothing. But once again, that's an addict's journey, and he's far from the step of taking responsibility, he needs to drop his addict fiance' because that seems to be what they have in common and get on track. His sons seem to be good young men, and his ex-wife seems to have her shit together so...But other than that, the sister is the worse, he's weak but she's just flat out evil.

    From Across The Pond: Royal Weddings and Scandals

    Yeah, she is a bit scary IMO, she seems obsessed. Like if she could strangle Meghan in her sleep, she would. And she had the nerve say that their brother was the crazy one, nope, he seems to basically be suffering from substance abuse problems, he seems very weak but no where near as vindictive and hateful toward Meghan as Samantha has proven to be. Speaking of substance abuse issues, Harry knows a thing or two about being in this state, and getting in bar fights as well so...But I digress, that seems to be the only one who comes off as utterly hateful, and downright deranged. "God save the Queen" and Meghan,LOL. No seriously, the hate is real and scary. Cause I bet you anything she's getting all kinds of death threats, no way she's not, from the Alt-right lunatics. Now the threats wouldn't reach her of course, they'd probably not clue her in to the specifics or the number of threats she was getting. But I was wondering if the protection agents would even tell Harry because Harry looks like he is very fragile when it come to Meghan. I think if he knew, he'd probably try to put that girl on lock down for utterly paralyzing fear he would have for her safety, like a total end to any rope line greetings of the public. You know because of his mother, he's got some serious issues when it comes to her safety. This is joke, "I want to be your tampon.." says Charles to Camilla, enough said. LOL, when I heard that, yeah, that's class for you. WTF? When I first heard it I said eeew, then I busted out laughing. No one in the royal family should be thumbing their noses at anyone, divorces up the ying/yang, and the lot of them are not highly educated, they don't have half the education that Meghan has had. Once again, it's the entitlement of just their blue blooded whiteness that literally makes them and worse the Alt-right folks think they are better than.

    Oh lord, why doesn't she just fade away. Or why doesn't she focus on the children she supposedly lost custody of. I know they're grown but still, she could be doing that instead of harassing her baby sister. I mean how in the hell does a mother lose custody of all three of her children, it's got to have been bad for that to happen as courts at least in this country tend to favor mothers. I mean not even shared custody but full custody was awarded to someone other than her. STFU Samantha, the ship back to your sister's good graces has long sealed, you are toxic, and blood or no blood you have to cut toxic people out of your life and put yourself first, something tells me Meghan is partly where she is in life because she's mastered this. She cuts them right off, LOL, awesome. I'm impressed with her. The haters of Megan call it selfish and whole lot of other ugly terms they've directed at this young woman, I call it being hella smart. Speaking of the haters, the ones who pounce on Megan for simply existing, now they're outraged at her wearing pants? Are they forgetting the countless times that Lady Di wore pants, I know I've seen receipts of Princess Diana in pants. Those pants were awesome that Megan had on, loved them.
  15. Me neither, what I want is more Michaela Pratt to NOT be written as the white female character's friend and to NOT be written as the stereotypical strong black woman who cleans shit up but no one NEVER EVER seems to be there for her, for anything. Because she's strong remember? She obviously doesn't need any to support and care for her. What I want is for PN to stop trying to pit Michaela against Anna and then hyping that shit up on twitter as some kind of housewives catfight, this is what you do with the only two black female characters on your show? It gets serious side eye from me. Still waiting for Peter Nowalk to get his stereotyping ignorant ass to wake up, and ignore the teachings of ignorant Shonda. What I want is for annoying ass Peter Nowalk to start spreading the wealth on this show when it comes to the secondary characters in the main cast, which is all of them who are not Anna and stop centering everything on secondary Laurel while leaving everyone else the fuck out with the scraps that are left. But no, now he's gonna tie up the fucking hour with that annoying ass character Olivia Pope. A character who is based on a real person who I highly doubt is as annoying as Shonda's trifling ass has made her seem on the little screen *eye roll.* I don't watch Scandal, don't give a shit. And no, as a black woman I don't care to see the powerhouse black female actress Viola Davis and the very good black female actress Kerry Washington on screen together if it has ANYTHING to do with Scandal, and in the hands of Shonda and Co., no thank you. HTGAWM is slowly creeping onto my shit list like Grey's did back when I use to watch, because Shonda's little protégé PN, is following her annoying ass way of writing and running a show.
