Bravo has a hit. I love this show. I also love Janeane Garofalo who is one of the main characters. She always plays the same character and intense overbearing know it all. Which she does so well. It is this small community of what seems to be Step-ford wives. With a twist is seems that the women are making the money with house husbands. At least two of the characters.
Abby McCarthy makes her living as the author of a successful series The Girlfriend Guide to ??? She is the Martha Stewart of kids, husband and family. Well she is living a lie. The husband roles in before the kids wake up smelling of sex. Wow that must hurt. He can’t wash his sweaty balls before getting in the bed with his wife. Clearly these people have money because there social circle is created by the school there kids go to. Which looks extremely expensive and exclusive. So there are the divorced or going through divorce women. The outcast of the school. She aligns herself with these women as she see her marriage going down the drain. While she is lying her ass off to her publisher because this is how she makes money. Since her house husband don’t have a job she needs money coming in. How about his ass won’t even fake it. Then her gay brother with his own marriage issues is not even supportive of his sister. Kept telling her she will work it out.
Well Lyla Janeane Garofal and Phoebe played by Beau Garrett her now friends are trying to get her to accept the fact that her marriage is over. The delusion of this woman is crazy. Abby ends up melting down promoting her book and letting the cat out of the bag about her jacked up marriage. This is a well scripted and acted show. I will keep you posted on the progress.
I haven’t written in this blog for a long time. Life took over. I have my shows I keep up on and I felt the need to write a review on this series. James Spader is an unbelievable actor and makes the whole series come alive. It is hard to find actors of his caliber. Most of the actors on the show are decent. Except for one glaring problem. Megan Boone who plays Elizabeth Keen is the worst actress. She only has one look through every episode.
She never deviates to far from that same facial expression. I don’t know how James Spader can deal with it. Rumor has it he has issues with her acting skills. Who ever cast her should be fired. It is very clear her acting abilities are lacking. I am glad it isn’t enough to break down the series. The writing, storyline and Spader make it easy to turn to the Blacklist, regardless of her bad acting. I really feel she needs to take some lesson and learn her craft. Or I can’t see her career going to far after this series.
I will have to say I am not a country music fan at all. I do remember when this young girl came on the scene at 15 and made a splash in the country music industry. I worked for the entertainment community briefly and I have to say, Country music fans are the most loyal I ever scene in life. This girl is now a woman who acts like an adolescent teenager. She stole someones husband and cheated on her own. It seems that she see’s Eddie Cibrian as some sort of prize. I hate to tell you sweetie. Whatever he does with you, he will do to you. So she better watch out because Karma is a bitch. I really could careless about her or her life. These articles about her and the ex-wife keep appearing on my favorite gossip column. Not to say his ex-wife is right in this fight. I do believe she has more of a reason to be mad then this trick.
So today I was reading my usual gossip column and this article about LeAnn Rimes foolishness caught my attention. I do not have a twitter account. So I don’t follow anyone. So clearly twitter puts a voice to the celebrities. Which they really need a public relations company to screen. A PR company will make a babbling idiot sound like they have a PHD. That is what they are used for to set an image. It seems so many celebs fuck up on twitter. Which they end up saying random apologizes that are far from believable. You meant what you said the first time. Someone told you that you fucked up and it could mess with your income and here comes the apology. She stated that her husband kids will always be hers. I didn’t copy the whole thing because it was a bunch a nonsense. The reason this interest me is, because she is talking about someones children. That did not come out of her twat. The jist is a fan called her out on talking about her step children mother. Which is beyond tacky. So I totally agreed with the fan. She really feels justified. Instead of being the bigger person and keeping her big mouth shut on the subject. She brings her up every chance she gets. Brandi Glanville (Cibrian ex-wife) can also throw petty shots also. Not to say it is right.
But she stole her husband, split her kids time and she is bitter. The children Brandi gave birth to will never be yours. If Eddie finds a new wife which is not far from possible, you probably will never see those children again. Which makes them not yours. The fact that you have no biological connection to these children makes you disposable. You are in their life from an adulterous relationship that stole their father from their mother. If you are so happy with your prize. Someone else’s man. Why don’t you shut up and enjoy your prize. Instead of starting shit with the man’s ex-wife. If she starts it first be the bigger person and bow out like an adult. You went on national television and said you were wrong. Except your lump make you music and shut up about that woman’s kids. All this shows is with the money, the fame and the man you are just a little girl with low self-esteem.
What comes around goes around ten fold. I hope you are ready for it. Your fans don’t even seem behind you!!!!
She only got five years. Actually she got fifteen years. Five years on three charges to run concurrently. She was found guilty of 9 out of 13 charges. The jury did not believe that she didn’t have an affair with her boss. The boss that killed her husband. A fact she denied on the stand in her boss’s murder trial. I do not believe her boss would kill her husband if he hadn’t rode the party train.
I have to say when this first happen and I watched the news. I was shocked. First of all he was killed in front of the daycare where he was dropping off his child. I instantly felt the wife had something to do with it.
I know every one reacts to death differently. Her husband was shot dead like an animal and this woman was cold as ice. She acted like she didn’t even know the man. When she was on the stand for her boss’s murder trial she was cold a defensive.
When I watched her being questioned by the prosecution I thought, wow you would never know this woman lost her husband. Then when she finally was put on trial and found guilty. Then the tears showed up. I was like damn. She should no emotion for her husband. When her ass is on the line she is a crying mess.
She got off easy. Five years for what she did. I know I am the court of public opinion. If quacks like a duck it is damn duck. I feel bad for her husband family. This woman had been in there lives for many years. Then she bought this man in her life and he destroyed her family. When she was crying I felt no sympathy for her at all. I am glad she got sometime, but not enough.
Clearly she didn’t appreciate her husband and let him fall victim to this foolishness.
I found this show very randomly. It was cancelled on ABC after two episode. They did give us the whole first season online.
I have no idea what I was doing when this show was on. I would have pulled for it. I actually like the characters, writing and show concept. Now that reality TV has taken over the television these days. I have to say this was a great take on a scripted drama through the eyes of fake reality TV.
If you are board one day take a chance and watch the first season of this random series that wasn’t given a chance.
The story line follows a class in their senior year at 2000 for a documentary. Then fast forward ten years 2010 and they find these people. So much has happened over these ten years.
Enron scandal, 9-11, Black president. They show you how their lives have changed in these ten years. Also what still haunts them from their past. I would have loved to see season two. Oh well it made my weekend very interesting learning about these characters.
This is the wife of Brandon Stark. A lord and good friend of the king. The series begins with this family. You realize all the children in this clan do not belong to her. Jon Snow is her husband bastard child. How did he bring this baby home and expect her to suck it up, we never know.
It is clear he is not accepted as an heir. Her son likes to climb and witness the queen sexing up her brother. Jaime Lannister pushes her son from the tower window so no one learns the secret. This is when you see the strength of mothers. She was by his side everyday. Until she realized someone was trying to kill her son. Then she knew there was more to the story.
All this leads to inevitable war after her husband is slain by the King Joffery Lannister. Her oldest son Robb Stark claims to be the king of the north and the war begins. She guides her son in this war. Which he was not ready for and made several big mistakes.
She was more loyal to the welfare of her other children. She only knew how one child was doing during most of the series and that was Robb. The other four were out in the world and she prayed they were alright. She wanted to deal with the Lannister’s to get her daughters back safely. She let Jamie Lannister go which created a problem between her and Robb.
Robb should have paid attention to some of her advice. Such as not marrying the woman he fell in love with. Doing his duty and looking beyond his self to marry one of Walder Frey daughters. This decision marked the end of the Kind of the North and his whole army. His mother tried to warn him. The last scene when everyone was being killed. Catelyn had Walder Frey wife and yelled let her son go or she would kill his wife. Frey immediately said I will get another one.
Her reaction was perfect when they killed Robb. You could feel the pain of her child being killed in front of her. Then she was killed.
She is a very good actress and I appreciated her part in this series.
This was a very good movie. Now when you think of IRON MAN, you think of Robert Downey Jr. What is IRON MAN without smart ass Robert Downey. I am sure you have watch other Marvel comic movies, where the movie sucked. A lot has to do with the actor. It is the actor that brings Stan Lee character to life.
Robert comes with his own type of swag. He is condescending and kind of asshole. All the years of the drama in his real life: it wouldn’t be surprised if he was really a condescending asshole in his every day life.
You see the human side of Iron Man in this movie. He is a man with a suit. Who is he without the suit. He is human man with a smart ass mouth and anxiety attacks. Also in Robert Downey asshole manner telling the little boy not to be a punk about his father leaving was classic.
He is having anxiety attacks from his adventures with the Avengers. Nice touch to bring in that movie into this one. Since I actually saw the Avengers the tie in was smooth. I would have love to see more with Don Cheadle. Who I also feel is a great actor. Who has been underrated over the years. In this movie he came with his own suit IRON PATRIOT.
It was a nice touch that the Vice President was in on the plot of evil. Politics were under attach in the movie. Granted the bad guy didn’t car about politics. He wanted to show the president as corrupt to further is desire for power. Not the greatest story line, but entertaining. I think it warrants a go see. I would give it a B.
I watched two episodes of the new show by Tyler Perry Love Thy Neighbor. I wish I could get that hour back. I been watching the commercials and thought I would give it a chance. I could see the ghastly acting, but the mother character did seem a little funny. I am not a fan of Tyler Perry T.V.
I am actually not a fan of most of his stuff. No, I am not hating that he is making money off his work. Good for him. It bothers me that his stuff is so bad!!! I love comedy sitcoms. Frasier, Girlfriends, Living Single, Two and half men the list goes on and on. The reason those are great comedies and Love Thy Neighbor can’t even attempt to be on their level. The acting in Love Thy Neighbor is beyond awful. Not to mention the writing and plot sucks. Who the hell hired these people? Did they take any acting classes? Who ever is the casting director needs to be fired!! Clearly Tyler is no Shonda Rhimes with Scandal and Grey’s Anatomy. That woman has some major skills. That no one can deny.
I was talking to a co-worker. We both agreed that all T.V. shows by Tyler, the actors seem to be reading the scripts from a teleprompter and have no acting skills what so ever. Mama Hattie Mae had a few cute moments. Eventually her character got over the top and annoying. The daughter played by Kendra C. Johnson acting was beyond bad. I don’t know what works in plays but it clearly doesn’t work on television. I lost interest in her character and story line immediately. The son Danny played by Andre Hall acting was equally as bad.
The two characters that were the friends and coworkers of Danny, were the worst of the bunch. The white guy Sam was a reject Jim Carey type. His lines were no more believable than his character. Then Drew the one with the crush on the grandson Danny. Her lines seemed out-of-place every time she opened her mouth.
Beyond the bad acting the storyline was retarded. It was outlandish and unrealistic for a half an hour segment. A health inspector shows up and in five seconds says the place is closed down. Then all of sudden the inspector comes back to help fix the place. He felt bad for doing his job. So he wants to help because he thought the daughter was an attractive lady.
I know situation comedies are fiction. But come on Tyler. You couldn’t do better than that. I never been a big fan of the plays. Maybe that is where the basis of this comes from. I have no understanding how Tyler and Oprah couldn’t see this show needed a lot more work.
Did they even test this with audience. If so did they pay the audience to say it was good. This will not be a break out universal hit like The Big Bang Theory.
Or since Tyler has made so much money, he can make any type of shit and we are supposed to believe it is gold.
There are a few movies I did like of Tyler. Dairy of a Mad Black Women, my first introduction to Madea,The first Why did I get Married, and The Family that Preys. Now I am sick of Madea and the same structure of every movie. A downtrodden woman needs saving. She thinks all men suck and is bitter. Then a good man shows up in her life and saves her in some kind of way. Which seems to be the plow of countless Tyler Perry productions.
Funny that is part of the story line in Love Thy Neighbor. Can we have an original thought. I guess not the combination has made Tyler a lot of money. I don’t hate the player just the game. I wish him luck and all the people who like his stuff. I feel it has gone downhill and I will not give another Tyler Perry production a chance. Good luck OWN network. Oprah has went from ground breaking television with her day time talk show. To reality show and sitcom trash.
This is the character you love to hate. She is the Queen and the wife of the King Robert Baratheon. When you first meet her she has an evil feel to her. She seems nasty for no reason. Once you get to know her she is a straight up Bitch. That is also sleeping with her twin brother. Which brings me back to the V.C. Andrews books I use to love. If you ever read flowers in the attic the brother and sister were sleeping with each other.
All Cersei children are not the kings. They are her brothers. A well hidden secret in the beginning. By season 3 everyone knows the freaky mess going on in the Lannister family.
She did make a good point. When you have incest children. You might get a crazy one in the mix. She is talking about her son Joffrey. Joffrey clearly has some problems. Since he found it fun to tortured two prostitutes. I think he is spoiled and entitled and couldn’t wait to be king.
You get the point that she is ruthless bitch that is only concerned about herself and her family. The one she can’t stand up to is her father. Who pimped her out again. It was clear she was forced to marry Robert Baratheon. By Season 3 she is forced to marry Loras Tyrell.
What I found hilarious is when the match was being formed by Cersei father and Loras grandmother. They debated what was more trifling. Loran sleeps with men or Cersei sleeping with her brother. By the end of the conversation the merging of empires was the only choice.
I have to say Lena Headey is a very good actress. I believe she is an evil bitch. I love when your watching fantasy stories and the characters fit the part.

I love this character. He might be little in stature, but he character is big with skills. This guy Peter Dinklage is a great actor. He plays his ass off in this part. You know his father only helps him out of obligation from being his father. He killed his mother in child-birth. Which clearly everyone blames him for and rubs in his face. He loves the prostitutes and they seem to love him. He throws his money around to get whatever he wants. He is like Rodney Dangerfield he gets no respect. You feel sorry for the way they treat him. He is a side-show freak with money. Then you can’t feel bad for him because he knows how to handle himself. He is smarter than everyone else. You know he will survive the bullshit.
Out of the three Lannister kids he is the best one. The other two had an incestrious relationship and had three kids. The father knows this is true but never seems to acknowledge it.
Tyrion is a condescending honest caring asshole. He plays it very well. The line his constantly uses. I didn’t mean to offend you. Which you know that is exactly what he meant to do. Some characters are great when you read them in a book. They come alive with great actors. I believe he brings life to this character.
Equal to Lafayettte in True Blood. Lafayette was supposed to be killed off, but viewers loved his character so much they kept him alive.
