On Sunday after I watched the tom foolery that is Basketball Wives, I watched the premiere of the new show "Single Ladies" starring Stacey Dash and Lisa Raye McCoy. I can honestly say that in the first 10 minutes I thought that I might really like the show. Then my feelings quickly changed. The script became very messy in so many ways and I found no way that I, or any or my friends for that matter, could relate to such tom foolery.
The issues that these women were dealing with, none of my female friends would deal with in a million years. Not in our 20's, 30's, 40's or beyond. Not never. I am honestly upset that Queen Latifah has her name on this. I really thought she would have been able to do better depicting the single life of young black women. As I watched the show via twitter along with my many followers, I found that I was not alone in feeling that this was a poor depiction. I have been single and I have many single friends, and I have never heard such stories and accounts and girls night out. I'm just saying.
I feel that Lisa Raye was not acting at all and was just being herself. And the fact that her name has to be Kesha...it bothers me. Anyone who knows me knows that I often refer to hood rats and the uncouth as "Kesha" and the fact that she was all too ratchet and even a video hoe thief...I rest my case. Every single character was hustling backwards. They are all playing themselves out and attempting to use it as some sort of power. What a shame.
And let me further note that I believe the alleged altercations between Stacey and Lisa Raye behind the scenes was attributed to wardrobe. I'm going to go on the record and say that Lisa Raye was jealous that Stacey got the better wardrobe. Lisa Raye looked like her wardrobe selections came from RAVE while Stacey looked as if she was off a runway (minus those god awful acid wash jeans with the rips in them).
You can judge me, but I will probably continue to watch it just so I can talk bad about it. So until next week ladies....
*peace love & couture*
