We can’t cover every news story ourselves. Fortunately, there are a lot of great sources for reality TV news and gossip. Check out these links from some of our favorite sites in the March 24 edition of Tuesday Morning Tea.
Whether you agree with the results or not, the people have spoken. The People’s Choice Awards went down on November 10 and there were some big winners in the reality TV categories. And even the people who didn’t win showed up
to get some press enjoy the party.
I’m not gonna lie, I wish I got an invite because there were cast members from some of my favorite shows in attendance and I would just love to see them all interact. Real Housewives, Vanderpump Rules, The Bachelor, and Keeping Up With the Kardashians cast members showed up for the award show.
Confession: I can sit through 1oo’s of hours of “unscripted television,” but I have never once made it through an awards show. Except maybe the MTV VMAs one year while I was in college. And even then, I only made it through because I was too hung over to move from the couch where my roommates were watching.
However, I do find the People’s Choice Awards fascinating. Because the awards are voted on by the viewers, it makes for some… interesting results. For example, last year’s nominees for “Drama Movie of the Year” included Red Sparrow and A Quiet Place – both legitimate movies with plots and acting and character development. Wanna know what movie won? “Fifty Shades Freed.” That’s right, we the viewers chose soft porn over a movie starring Academy Award-winning Jennifer Lawrence and one starring America’s favorite human, Jim Halpert. America’s voting habits make me nervous.
After only ten days of hanging out for a check therapy, the Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition couples must decide if they are ready to commit to their relationships or walk away. I recommend that they walk away, briskly. Or at least most of them should. One couple will take the next step and another will cut ties completely.
When the group gets ready to leave the strip club, drama ensues when Waka Flocka gets a little too friendly with some random women. In usual Tammy Rivera fashion, she goes all the way off when she sees her husband smiling in another woman’s face. I wonder if she did that when he actually cheated all of those times in the past. After returning home, the men and women discuss what will happen at the end of Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition. Honestly, it doesn’t seem like most people will change and their partners aren’t going to do anything. So, I guess all of this just for the viewers’ entertainment.
Last night on Marriage Boot Camp Hip Hop Edition, things get interesting when the couples have a surprise lie detector test. The couples are put on the hot seat and DECEPTION is definitely indicated for some! The Bootcampers go out as single men and women for a night of debauchery at the club. Relationships will be put to the test. Will this exercise make them stronger? Or will it expose more secrets?
Judge Lynn Toler lets the couples know its lie detector day. A group of men and women in black stand in the front of the room and look at the couples like they are inmates. Everyone is allowed to give their partner one yes or no question. Tammy Rivera asks if she is enough “woman” for her husband. Her question is revised to find out if Waka Flocka can be committed. We already know that may not be true. He has cheated on her a thousand times. Waka asks if Tammy trusts him. He better not fail this test or his wife may go crazy on national television.
Last night on Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition, it was another day and another explosive fight between Soulja Boy and Nia Riley. Things go all the way left, when Nia attempts to talk to him while he is in a mood. Fed up with the drama, she lies in another bed and plays on her phone. Soulja Boy is enraged that he is being ignored and a shouting match ensues. He jumps in her bed screaming and grabbing at her legs. The fight is so loud, half the house wakes up and runs to Nia’s aide. I doubt this is the first time something like this has happened. They both seem content complaining and then going back to each other. Nia, give up on him!
Jessica Dime and Tammy Rivera pull Nia aside to console her after the fight. She is so frazzled that she can’t even get her thoughts together. Later, Soulja Boy gives his side of the story to Tammy and Waka Flocka. He is upset because earlier that night she broke up with him. The next morning he apologizes and attempts to mend things. It seems like they go through the same cycle every episode. SMH…
Last night on Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition, Karl Dargan tried desperately to explain why he was up after midnight talking to another woman. I must say, he is totally committed to lying and denying everything to his wife. The experts question why Lil Mo would stay in this marriage. Dr. Ish brings out photographic evidence from the cameras that captured his moment of infidelity with a woman he claimed was his “sister.” Lil Mo leaves her meeting with the experts and shares the photo and the story with the whole house. Most would be embarrassed, but she doesn’t seem to be!
Lil Mo realizes Karl never came to bed and is asleep on the couch downstairs. She brings him back to their room to get some answers. Karl goes back to sleep to deflect from the conversation. The next morning, they engage in a shouting match. Things take a turn for the worst when Karl tries to slam the door on Lil Mo as she tries to confront him. He is clearly in denial and wants to ignore the problem rather than discuss it. They both step away from the camera. She begs Karl to say something to give her peace of mind. I was sad to see her so desperate to be loved. She let him publicly embarrass and disrespect her and their relationship. She gives him an out and even kisses him, despite him admitting the truth. SMH….
