Dahling Lisa Vanderpump, Leaving Real Housewives of Beverly Hills?

Dahling, Season 10? We’ll See 

After eight seasons,has the Crown grown too heavy for Ms Vanderpump?  or has her cast mates had enough? 

Is she or ins’t she leaving #RHOBH? only her dog Jiggy know for sure. 

On Reality TV, no man or Vanderpump is an island.   If your castmates have had enough of you and refuses to film with you, its OVAH?   Its all bout da drama.

In October ,when filming of the ninth season began, there were rumors about Vanderpump missing in action.   She did not attend Camille Grammer’s wedding with the rest of the housewives.  Those rumors were confirmed by castmate Lisa Renna who said on Instagram, Vanderpump hadn’t shown up for work in six weeks. 

The rumors are swirling, is she over her castmates? or are they over her?   She missed the France vacation and she and Kyle maybe at odds as the two close friends haven’t spoken in weeks.   They say she feels excluded, others say when she’s invited she doesn’t show.  Many of her segments were filmed without the other castmates  

Lisa Vanderpump  has had a rough year.  In May, her brother Mark, reportedly committed suicide in England. 

Lisa and Kyle are the pillars of the show.  They have been on the show since its premiere in October 2010.  Fans wonder if the show can survive the loss of Vanderpump?  However, should she leave RHOBH, she will still appear on Bravo on her very popular show Vanderpump Rules. 

So, if this her final season,we’ll know after the reunion.

Clinging to the past


28 years ago “Fresh Prince of Bel Air” premiered on NBC. Starring, a 21 year old Willard Carroll Smith Jr (as Will)

Last week, I came across a video of Janet Hubert on Facebook. While most people know Will Smith, few people know Ms Hubert by her given name. However, she is known the world over as the original Aun’t Viv, she was 34 years old, when the show premiered.

M’s Hubert, was replaced by Daphne Maxwell Reid at the beginning of the fourth season.  Rumors suggested  Ms Hubert was difficult on the set of the sitcom, bumping heads with cast members and it’s star.

For the last 25 years years, Mr Hubert has been in a one person feud with Will Smith. She has blamed him for her inability to get work, her financial situation and  her son’s attempted suicide.

In her July 16th (2018) you tube post, she directs the video directly at Mr Smith. In addition to Smith, she attacked Perez Hilton, the black community and called Bet and Vibe the nigger networks.

It’s clear she has been trolling the Smith family, wife Jada and their children. She wants a face to face meeting with Smith .While she does acknowledge, Mr Smith’s kind words about her, she want’s to talk to him about events that took place more than 25 years ago.

When I look at her other you tube posts, she quickly lashes out at anyone who questions her or disagrees with her.  It appears she is angry with former cast mates reserving  most of her ire at Will Smith and Alfonso Ribeiro who has been critical of her. From what I’ve seen, when ever she is on TV, Will Smith is front and center.  She insists the cast members dislike each other.  However, the cast seem to be in contact with each other and speak well of other cast mates. With one exception in 1993, where he told a Atlanta radio station she was fired, he has had nothing but positive words about his experience with Ms Hubert.

While Smith and family have gone on to live their lives, its seems Ms Hubert life is stalled in the past and its very clear that she is comfortable looking rearward. Every now and them the Smith’s are asked to respond to something Ms Hubert has said to the press and from what I can see both Jada and Will are gracious.

There are many Ms Hubert’s who despite their words find comfort in the past. Blaming an event, an individual or individuals, a parent or someone or something  that prevents them from moving forward. With a well rehearsed story, so fresh it seemed it happened yesterday.

Many of these people need this narrative that was so damaging that they are unable to move forward.

For many of us, it is an excuse. Everyday people with challenging lives are fired, everyday someones heart is broken, we lose someone, and we are disappointed.

Hearts take time and isn’t a preset healing time. While some heart’s heal sooner that others, there are a few people who are so broken, they reject the healing process, they pick and reopen the wound to perhaps, keep the story fresh.

For some, the benefit of reliving the event is the sympathy it generates. Rarely does the narrator include a timestamp, when the event took place. In doing so, it reduces the impact of the story.

One wonders if these people are able to move on. Janet Hubert has spent 28 years angry. A lifetime.

This morning Roseanne tweeted

“Don’t feel sorry for me, guys!!”  “I just want to apologize to the hundreds of people,and wonderful writers (all liberal) and talented actors who lost their jobs on my show due to my stupid tweet.”.

“Guys I did something unforgivable so do not defend me,” she wrote. “It was 2 in the morning and I was ambien tweeting-it was memorial day too-i went 2 far & do not want it defended-it was egregious Indefensible. I made a mistake I wish I hadn’t but…don’t defend it please. ty.”

.

“Overshare”

What ever happened to calling a friend?  Perhaps it’s a need for attention or public validation, but someone you know is or has posted something very personal on social media, placing her careers and reputation at risk.

I know of one person who has lost three jobs for venting about those jobs on social media.  A woman who lost her job  after up loading pictures of her simulating a sex act on social media.    ___________________________________________________________

One person, after being fired deleted his Facebook account and opened another with a different name, inviting his friends to join him on the new account.  After getting the new job old habits re-emerged. Complaints about clients and co-workers, in less than two weeks he was fired from the new job.

9 Things You Should Never Share on Social Media

https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/9-things-never-share-social-media/

______________________________________

Why do some of us Overshare? 

Professor Russell W Belk of York University in Toronto says: The feedback of friends, family members, acquaintances, and strangers therefore provides continual criticism and validation.

“When we’re looking at the screen we’re not face-to-face with someone who can immediately respond to us, so it’s easier to let it all out—it’s almost like we’re invisible,” said Belk, of the so-called “disinhibition effect” that online sharing helps create. “The irony is that rather than just one person, there’s potentially thousands or hundreds of thousands of people receiving what we put out there.”

Still, something seems amiss when people feel it’s more important to express a desire on Facebook for the president to be assassinated than it is to, say, exercise tact or avoid losing your job. (Yes, she was fired.)

 

Another crucial ingredient encouraging online exhibitionism is, as stated by Belk, the “tension between privacy and potential celebrity.” For some people, the longing to be popular far outweighs the longing to be respected, and their social media accounts can verify this.

It’s A Free Country,What’s the big deal? 

Unlike a private conversation between friends. A posting on social media is memorialized.  What you’ve said to a certain extent is now a part of history.  Ideally the user should use the same level of caution then he or she would in an open conversation.

One can have an political opinion, an impression, when the opinion, impression crosses the line of civility the authors reputation and potential carreer could be damaged.   Students randomly tweeting and making racists or insentive videos have been tossed out of colleges all of the county, well after they attempted to delete the statement or  video.   Now apart of record, many of these students had difficultly finding a new college and that video may forever inpact their careers.

More and more employers are accessing your private social media to get a sense of who your are*    From her previous Tweets on social media ABC knew Roseanne was a risk. In the past she has been critical of the Obama Administration and has posted some controversial  theories and opinions online.   Before Roseanne2, she admitted that she had made people angry and said she would stay offline. She slipped, leaving ABC with little choice, to the cancel the show.

*Accessing one’s social media account isn’t difficult as few people vet new friends.

The Internet is public. Remember that. So even when you think you are posting something privately, once it is out into the Internet ether, it is out of your control and potentially can be used against you in the future. This is especially important in a job search. Even though a future employer (assuming they are not the government) may not be able to access your private posts, it is common to begin including coworkers as future friends. They will have access to your stuff. Keep it clean.

With that in mind, here is a list of things you should never post on social media:

Mean spirited gossip, insults, pictures of careless drug and excess consumption of alcohol are red flags for employers.

Roseanne,Donald and You

For some of us, social media is an important part of our daily lives.  Throughout the day we are checking for texts, pictures, comments and likes.  For some nearly, all their social interaction is via an electronic device.  With one push of a button, you can interact with hundreds, millions, and receive acknowledgement from hundreds and millions more.  For some its intoxicating, and for others its an addiction.  These people   on social media, every day several times a day.  Some purposely post controversial topics to stimulate traffic on his page.       Is this you?    Can you refrain from texting or Social Media for 24 hours?

Update:  Looks like Roseanne’s Twitter silence lasted a couple of hours. As she feels her co-stars threw her under the Bus.   Her tone seems a little less apologestic than this morning.   

 

F-Kanye up? Come on now!


A rapper with alleged ties to Snoop Dogg called on the Crips to F.up Kanye West.  The order came over Sunday morning in an Instagram video, according to CBS Los Angeles.

This is all over Kanye’s public support of President Donald Trump.

The video has since been taken down.  The problem is, some misguided person, just may try to take Kanye West out.  We’ve seen this with our current President, who’s I said that, but you got to wrong has resulted in attacks on Muslim’s and other brown skinned people.  If he is associated with Snoop Dogg, we can only hope Snoop will denounce the message.

You can actually purchase this hat online.  There are “Make Kanye Great Again” Tee shirts. 

That’s America!  

I love that tweet. ” Make Kanye Black Again”

Kenya is a proud black man.

Kanye West is an American Citizen first and performer second.  As a citizen, he is free to join any political party he chooses.    However as a citizen and a performer, he risks alienating his fan base.

His support of President Trump is curious.  Many years ago Mr West called then President George W. Bush  racist, due  on his lack of support for the Katrina victims in New Orleans.  When President Trump and his father has a long history of discrimination against blacks and other minorities and there lies the outrage.

I agree with Chance the Rapper, when he says “Black people don’t have to be Democrats “  I think some of his fans  might forgive Kanye should he chooses to become a Republican.

The outrage is the support of an individual who’s has supported white supremacists, reportedly called African Nations shithole nations and systematically dismantling existing programs that effect  LGBT communities and People of Color.

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve never been a fan of Kanye West his talent is undeniable, I struggle with his narcissism , much like the narcissism of our President. However while I don’t agree with his admiration of Donald Trump, I admire his courage.   A few years ago I admired the courage of the Dixie Chicks.  You remember the Dixie Chicks.  Google um.

Who knows, Pandora?  Kanye West

(Read it Slow) A man who threw a banana peel at Dave Chappelle is suing him.

The man was angered by something Chappelle  said at show, He threw a banana peel.

From: Page Six

A man who threw a banana peel at  Dave Chappelle  during a 2015 performance in Santa Fe, New Mexico, is suing the comedian and a man presumed to be his bodyguard.

Christian Englander’s lawsuit filed Friday contends the presumed bodyguard struck Englander twice as he was being restrained.

Englander, who is white, has said he had no racial motivation when he threw the banana peel at Chappelle, who is black, but was angered by something Chappelle said during the show.

Englander faced charges of battery and disturbing the peace, but they were dropped because Chappelle was unwilling to participate in the prosecution.

Englander’s claim he was assaulted wasn’t mentioned in the police report, but his lawyer said it would have been raised if Englander went on trial.
