While Keyshia “Fish Plate” Cole is running around handing out Floyd Mayweathers to love rivals, her ex-boo, Daniel Boobie Gibson is talking about their failed marriage to VLAD TV. Now I’ve always been a big fan of Boobie since the couples’ reality show, Keyshia and Daniel: Family First. He’s a cutie, and has some damn sense, but I really like what he has to say about love and marriage. As far as a youngin’ goes, he gets it!

A television reporter and owner of a marijuana activist club in Anchorage, Alaska quit during a live broadcast. Charlo Greene, who was reporting on efforts to legalize marijuana, revealed she was the owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club then said “f*ck it, I quit” and walked off! Damn, girl!

Hmmmm black, marijuana activist from Anchorage? Oh, she different! But I did read somewhere that the ratio of men to woman in Alaska is like 20 to 1! So Char and her Lands Ends gear be all up in the great frontier smoking blunts with the loggers? Okay, then boo.

CBS Pissed Off The Bajan Princess

2014 Summer Classic Charity Basketball Game

Rihanna is finally speaking out about CBS’ decision to yank “Run This Town” from last week’s Thursday Night Football broadcast in the wake of the Ray Rice debacle. The song included a Don Cheadle voiceover and was to open the game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Baltimore Ravens. CBS, presumably in cahoots with the NFL, opted to take a more serious tone and pulled the song and other parts of the pre-show. Rihanna, herself a victim of DV, was basically victimized again by having her project pulled from the show amid whispers of the obvious…linking her abuse to the current issues in the league. CBS decided to bring the song back, causing Rihanna to unleash on the twitters.

Now, CBS has again flip-flopped, deciding to scrap the song altogether (but will keep Cheadle’s part).

Do you think NFL fans are smart enough not to link Rihanna to the current domestic violence issues in the league? Will she forever be a “face” of DV? Or, do you think CBS/NFL pulled it simply to go with a more serious tone for the game? What’s your call?

Brewchies at the Movies: No Good Deed

No_Good_Deed_2014_movie_poster
Three of your Witches joined all the restless aunties in America this weekend at the theater to see Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson in “No Good Deed“.

Ya’ll know the premise by now; convict, doorbell ringing, bad judgment calls and a twist.

So let’s stir this cauldron a bit.

Acting:

Fleur:  Hmmm, Taraji is my DC boo but she basically plays the same chick in every movie. Looks like she borrowed Bey’s frizzy wig from “Obsessed” and gave it trim and a dark rinse.  I kept expecting her to call Idris, “Jody”. She still gets props though.  Idris was good but too restrained. Let your inner psycho go!

Hazel: Taraji joined Gabrielle Union at the school of “How to Portray Yourself in All Movies.” I love her. But, come on, be honest. She is the same person, every time. And, what was up with Idris’ accent? Was he Southern… generic “middle American?” Some words had a drawl, some didn’t. That bugged me a little but his shirtless scenes made up for it.

Piper:  So, Taraji will always be that around the way chick that you root for, but um er rah, I always go to her movies not expecting to see anyone other than Taraji, I don’t wanna knock her talent because well, there’s always her Oscar nominated performance in “Benjamin Button” right? but well, I felt like I was watching her play herself in an ‘Investigation Discovery ’ channel reenactment. So well, take that for what it’s worth. Also of note, and probably only bugged me cause y’all know a witch loves her hair hats, I kept wanting to heat up my curling wand and blend the front of her natural hair through the screen with the curly ‘fro they graced her with, but again, probably just my thing (the two textures really got outta sync the more terrified she became).

Plot:

Fleur:  The plot was ok. I needed more flashbacks to when Idris was a bad, bad boy for context. I also wanted it to be grimier, darker. You gonna be bad, then be bad! Like when he killed his boo, he should have bathed her, post-mortem, dressed her back up and propped her ass on the bed next to the Annabelle doll, you know, some sadistic shinnnaaaaiiiiiieeeeee.  Or he needed to at least get some cutty before he killed her. I mean wasn’t he in prison for five damn years?

Hazel: Is it Oscar-worthy? Not a chance. It was a step away from a Lifetime movie. There were some definite holes (um, police manhunt or nah?), but, I did enjoy seeing black people in regular movie roles. No slavery, Jim Crow period pieces. Just black people… being black and married, wearing pseudo-naturally curly wigs that shrink and grow with your emotions, being insane and of questionable judgment… you know, ALL the emotions. ALL the feels.

Piper:  Well as plots go, it was typical deranged fine dude who loves to get his kill on. It woulda been nice to see flashbacks of his childhood that show his mama beating him and maybe following it up with a bat in his anus or something, something that would explain his NEED to off the ladies. But we never got that, we only got fine deranged dude with awesome abs. I’m certainly not complaining, in the theatre I saw it in, I forgot I was at the movies because in one scene where he’s taking off his shirt, women were screaming “take it off baybay”! (or maybe that was me, which I’m sure my man did not find the least bit amusing)….. Anyway, the plot twist is actually the reason to see this, otherwise, it’s a typical “RUUUUNNNNNNN GIRL, HE FINNA KILL YOU!!!” type of flick.

Rating:

Fleur: I give it 6 out of 10.

Hazel: I give it a 7. I did not see that plot twist coming. And, my O.G. NYPD Blue boo Henry Simmons was a niiiiiice added bonus. (He, too, went to the same acting school as Taraji and Gab U. But, he fine tho!)

Piper: I’d give it a 6.5 out of 10

The Witches have spoken. What’s your take?
