TWO GIANTS OF BLACK ENTERTAINMENT….A LITTLE BIT OF EVERYTING….3RD INSTALLMENT

 

UNIVERSE AND WEAVE IN HARMONY

UNIVERSE AND WEAVE IN HARMONY

This week and weekend has been difficult in the entertainment world.  Issac Hayes and Bernie Mack have passed away.  Their creativity touched our lives in ways we could not have imagined. 

I was terribly shocked when I heard it on the radio about both black men.  Issac Hayes was a part of my youth and growing up in the seventies.  I grew up hearing the theme of Shaft on the television and movie theatres.    My recollection was a drivng theme song that you could sing and enjoy.  There were not as many black television programs on back then.  So that was a part of my youth.

Bernie Mack was and is a part of my son’s youth.  We would sit together and watch Bernie Mack and his television adoptive children go through problems that families go through.  Some of the problems were rediculous…some so funny and hilarious….some cute and sentimental!

Yes,  we must applaud these two steller men who have taken their final bow…and wish all who come in their path  walk in their foot steps- to take up their mantels and promote more entertainment for all.

 

Thank you Bernie Mack.

Thank you Issac Hayes.

Rest in Peace.

UNIVERSE AND WEAVE IN HARMONY

UNIVERSE AND WEAVE IN HARMONY

 

 

Was yesterday for REAL?  Did Ms. Jones….Hot 97 officically sign off the radio?  What was that all about?  I was driving and listening to Ms. Jones and she and DJ Envy was talkin’ some stuff about this is their last show and all like that?  What did I miss these past few weeks?  I mean, like, you know,  Ms. Jones was making all kinda Jokes about Wendy Williams when the EEO drama came up…and NOW???!!!  What happened to Ms. Jones? 

But then it seemed like a joke or somethin’…because she was sayin’ that they were having a good-bye hello party someplace…and then she said that she will have her own television show on BET!!!!  WOW!  GOOD LOOK MS. JONES…YOU GO GIRL!!!!!

ALL JOKES ASIDE!  I am happy for both SHOCK JOCKS..WENDY WILLIAMS AND MS. JONES!  THEY  ARE ANSWERING TO THE COMMUINTY OF YOUNG PEOPLE AND THEIR MUSIC!  WENDY OF COURSE IS A gossipnesta….Diva of how to draw out celebs and their personal ish….Ms. Jones is good at being very hip, very ghetto, very aware of community issues..i.e. Sean Bell.  (For example,  Ms. Jones had been on the radio that next day after the court  case was settled regarding Sean Bell,  but she allowed her audience to really,  really vent!  Even Ms.  Jones Vented.  She vented so much that she actually used the forbidden “N” word on a caller.  I was like “Wow”!  She really had CAUGHT SOME FEELIN’S ABOUT that case and she expressed it very clearly although very ghetto in delivery. )

So getting back to her new television show….Let us see who will beat who in the ratings!  Wendy Williams with her querky,  supersize me,  size 12 toes and super highheeled shoes….also extreme hairstyles and over the top HOW YOU DOIN’S—VERSUS  Ms. Jones with her Shananay sounding straight from the hood, candy store going,  girl around the way voice and delivery….with side kicks D.J. Envy,  etc….Good luck Ladies…and keep pushing it….so that other youngsters coming up will follow behind in the roads that you  will pave for future Radio/TV personalities!

Nope…you guys will NEVER BE OPRA!!!!  But you just might beat out Tyra Banks talk show ….for sure….Especially Ms. Jones.

Ms. Jones has her heart, and her hear to the streets.  Suddenly Wendy seems to have NO PATIENCE WITH EXTREMELY GHETTO….DONKEY TYPE FOLKS….AS SHE AND side kick Charlemane state.  Wendy hangs up because she just ‘CAN’T’—

nO MATTER WHAT….DO WELL…..SPEAK WELL….AND BATTLE IT UP LADIES…JUST BATTLE IT UP!!!!  BUT NO HOOD NONSENSE PLEASE…REMEMBER AMERICA IS WATCHING YOU….FOLKS YOU LEAST EXPECT WILL BE WATCHING….JUST KEEP A GOOD BALANCE BETWEEN JOKES,  AND STUFF.

Ms. Jones said her show will be on BET in September……wow!  she will have to bring hard to catch up to Wendy’s steam….based on how Wendy does for those 6 weeks on Fox Den Bar  Cable.

Oh, an by the way…..NO MORE TRYING TO HURT ONE ANOTHER….HUH LADIES?  PLAY NICE……OKAY!?

Charlemane…be nice to Ms. Wendy….she done had a tough year chile!—Charlemane….dance with Ms. Wendy and you do not have to say HOW YOU DO’IN?! iF YOU DO NOT WANT TO….JUST DO THAT LITTLE DANCE “LITTLE MAN”—IT JUST SOUNDS CUTE ON RADIO….LAWD,  KNOWS HOW IT’S GONNA LOOK ON TV!!!!

So is Ms. Jones really off the radio though?  Can  anyone out there tell me?

Wendy did not loose anything….she still got her radio show and also gets a TV show too!—-Hi—haters!

Wendy Gurl….stay strong and do it…..as you say Wendy—-Go hard or go home!

And Ms. Jones…you stay strong and stay you!!!!

THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM….REFLECTIONS ON WENDY WILLIAMS JUNE 20, 2008 BROADCAST

 Open http://www.sitchin.com/elephant.htm in a new window.

Wendy has a laugh that is sometimes forced….sound of happiness?  Sound of pre-tend fun?  Sound of real enjoyment when you are tickeled pink by a “funny”.  I am not sure.  Sometimes it sounds that she is laughing at herself.  That is okay…I do that sometimes too. 

Yesterday Wendy and Charlemane sat on the radio and talked about her up coming show and going to LA to get ready for her show on July 14, 2008.  Wendy talked about people going into her office (PINK ROOM) her frig and taking bottles of  her  LIQUOR. 

 She discussed putting locks on the frig…Charlmane told how he sits quietly in the morning and people come in and take things.  They made references to the cleaning lady  and their security guards which created the ELEPHANT INTHE ROOM syndrome and huge laughter erupted and they giggled toward the end of the show.  Charlemane even made reference to SUPERMAN RAPPER…and IceTea issues and then they went off air at 7:00. 

So Wendy is still here folks….making jokes about the Elephant in the room.  Wendy has made statements that she has suffered for trying to have a family like atmosphere with her staff. 

 She vowed to never have a closeknit group of interns and staff ever again on Thursday… 

She made reference to her having a pole up her you know what because of her being SO GIVING and understanding of her work staff.

  She said she wants to keep everyone working for her on a formal basis and never again allow anyone to get that close to her.

I listened and wondered, how many of us on regular jobs have allowed people to come home with us….only to find out that our private lives become public when that co-worker gets back to work. 

Every smiling face HAS TEETH…PEOPLE! 

 I could relate very well to that view on life.  Some people might say that is being very negative….

I reserve the right to choose my friends. 

 Just because you work with someone and have a close working relationship does not mean that you should bring these people into your personal lives…

There is no  contract available that will prevent someone from making your personal private business public. 

Hey,  even the pastor of my church told me (when I explained that I am so tired and unable to function on the level of cleaning in my house) …..

…..”IF YOU DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR ….NO  ONE  WILL COME IN….DO NOT INVITE PEOPLE IN YOUR HOUSE…AND YOU CLEAN HOUSE WHEN YOU ARE READY….JUST DO NOT OPEN YOUR DOOR!…..

I laughted a hearty laugh when the pastor said that to me….because I knew exactly what he meant.  So I hope Wendy Williams learns that same thing. 

 Your private business is just that….PRIVATE….Keep your marriage, children,  hurts, shames,  angers, illnesses,  financial problems to yourself and you may find that you will not get so many hard stares…

And definitely do not allow co-workers to visit your home to see you argue or fuss with your mate, and  children.  Everybody has eyes, ears, mouth and a nose. 

 Learn from Wendy to protect your privacy and  your family as well. kEEP THAT elephant out of your house too.

Tell people of your victories…but not of every defeat…..they don’t care….they just want to have something to gossip about.

Well,   Till next blog…..

She’s Back! Wendy Williams of the Wendy Williams Experience- DA DA DA DAAAAA! The Queen of All Media! Sounds Positive and Strong

Today while driving and thinking on my own personal issues I switched from  Hot 97 for HIP/HOP music and checked in on Wendy!  Well,  despite the issues of the Nicole Spence complaint Wendy is still on the air. 

 She sounds like herself, and she and Charlemagne are Yuck, yuck,  yucking it Up!  Talking about advice hour, and Wendy answering her own telephones. 

 It seemed almost like nothing negative had ever been talked about on Hot 97 from jealous Ms. Jones.  It seemed like the shocking news had never been.  And I wished it were true.  But through it all Wendy has stood tall. 

 The first few days she appeared stressed and let her listening audience know it.  She really does talk to her audience.  Yesterday Wendy stated,  “I don’t trust people!”  I silently agreed with her in my head for my own reasons. 

 I hope that she deals honestly with her situation.  You know….she is like the “friend in  my head” radio personality.  Although I would probably never tell anybody some of the things she has been known to say or discuss. 

Wendy would ask the questions I would never ask.   Some or many of  Wendy ‘s  opinions I do not agree with but are food for thought on alot of levels.  You can learn from just about any body.   But anyway,  I digress….So Wendy and Charlemagne sounded like their old selves today. 

Thank G-d for second,  third, and fourth chances….uh….Howard Stern……uh….Don Imus….uh Shock Jock that harressed Hot 97 side kick of Ms. Jones in the morning….(what is that guy’s name anywhooo?) 

Think about it fellow bloggers….

Till next time

riveroflifelisajoy

P.S.  Maybe Tyler Perry should write a play about  Black Journalist, and the lives they live….Oh,  forgot….Wendy  has her own  movie coming out!  —When is that movie set?   Summer time seems like a good idea?!

I  can’t wait to see that movie about Wendy Williams and her life.  Ca’mon Ms. Jones @ Hot 97….make your movie too!    Get  moving!   Maybe even get a  perfume deal too!

LOLOL!   Till next blog…..

WENDY’S BREAKS HAVE BEEN CUT SHORT? –Wendy Williams and the continuing EEO dispute

I was listening today as I went about my daily personal errands and I heard Wendy Williams and Charlemange.  I was annoyed because I heard this Old School R & B Music. 

 Wendy interviewed Robert Verdie, (some high haute fashion guy).  They had quick banter and silly jokes and some discussion on fashion and designe.  Quite boring.  Suddenly Wendy states,  “Talk fast,  they cut my breaks and I have to play more music!”  I felt rushed and frustrated! 

 I heard Wendy stated before a this celebrity interview that Wendy was asking on air about an apothercery in her commuinty.  I wondered why Wendy would ask for something in her neighborhood on the air like that. 

Why would you do that?  Even her side kick seemed uncomfortable with her highlighting her  neigborhood.  Strange I thought. 

 I began to worry about Wendy.  Although she is accused of committing and EEO violation —I do not think that she is beyond reproach like IMUS.  I do not think anybody knows where Howard Stern,  or Don Imus live. Please take care and continue to highlight the funny stuff and the celebrity gossip that you do so well!

 

What does Wendy Williams, Eliot Spitzer, Detroit’s Mayor Have in Common?

Life Starts Here—Painted by RiveroflifelisajoyWell, I guess you can figure that answer out….can’t you?  But the bigger question is —-What will all of those listed names above in the title of this little writ…..do about the future that they will live….and their families will live?  No one is without sin…..”ALL OF HUMANKIND HAS SINNED AND FALLEN SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD……HE WITHOUT SIN  —CAST THE FIRST STONE”— We all know those scriptures and statements made by Jesus Christ and his deciples right?  So what am I trying to say here?  

Look,  if you take up public office, service to the community  try and decide what you want before you make that final choice.  You hurt more than yourself when you create  scandalous issues that hit the law offices and the media.  No one is perfect….but it is so difficult when the above listed persons admit, or have committed bad behavior and my child and their children are not tarnished by these things. 

We can not isolate ourselves….we have to interact…be social….or professional on our jobs…..but fraternizing,  sexual harrassement,  using  public monies for private sexual escapades  should not be!   How much supervision did Governor Spitzer need?  He is a grown man,  a leader in the country, and a guide toward elevating our state toward greatness, and better ecomonic policies and lifestyles for people like me…..low,  low middle class or struggle and write out my stress in this blog.   But when I find out that he can affort to pay $2000. 00 per hour for sex….and I can barely pay the $1600.00 per rent and have to go to the Food Pantry after I pay rent…..I feel a great deal of anger at Governor Eliot Spitzer.  I work and can not get a raise for more than 3% per every three years at my job…..but Governor Eliot Spitzer thought that a prostitute deserved to be paid $2000.00 for two hours worth of   ((((((((    WORK????    ))))))).  oH,  wowowowowowo!   A prostitute who uses her body deserves $2000.00 per  hour to use her body….but I a single parent can not even get a decent raise,  can not afford to pay rent, buy food,  sneakers,  clothes,  music lessons for my kid,  attend college to better myself,  and prepare college education for my kid…..but Eliot Spitzer had the right to decide that a prostitute should make more in two hours than I make in one week?!!!!! 

WOW! 

Again,  even Wendy Williams of 107.5 WBLS has been high lighted for alledged abuse of  Nicole Spence —look….Wendy Williams is not a famous politician…..but she I am quite sure is getting paid a pretty penny because she HAS THE GIFT OF GAB!   She can talk up a storm,  make jokes,  skits,  and all like that.  She sponsors college students, and visits other states, writes books,  advertises for various doctors (due to her love of  plastic surgery) and goes on trips for WBLS etc., etc., etc.,!~   Doesn’t that mean that she is held to some type of standard to respect the intelligence of her listening audience, and the intelliegence of her employers as well? 

I am always in shock and how much people who can talk so much, get paid so much and give little or nothing to the people who helped to get them to where they are.  They actually think that they are either better than their audience sometimes.  I do not think that of Wendy…..but I am a bit upset at the mess that the media and her circumstances is causing.  Especially with the minds of the  young people who wish to follow in the foot steps of Wendy as a Radio Personality! 

The Detroit Mayor is a strange case!  It seems that his personal love affair is possibly going to land him in jail?  This society is out for blood.  YOu cannot create a mess that you cannot clean up.  Blogging and writing, and any form of communication in today’s society is being watched and monitored at an all time high.  So why would a sitting Governor be so loose with his behavior.  Doesn’t  it seem that when a person reaches a certain level in life that someone would sit that person down and talk to them and say look….” You are a sitting Governor,  or YOu are a sitting Radio Talk Show Host,  or Look you are  a sitting Mayor of a major City in the most Powerful Country in the World!  You must remember to conduct yourself as though you were on television,  camera,  microphone at all times…..your conduct,  your attitiude,  your demeanor and your personal and private actions are being watched closely and from a far…..You are a leader…..conduct yourself as a leader…..remember future generations depend on you.  You have the power to shape destiny….for your children, your children’s children, and the world……Think before you act……

That should be the birds and the bees of public, and private and media leaders! 

So What I wish for the previous people discussed today here are…..that they come to realize that NO MAN IS AN ISLAND—–

I hope and pray for the best for all of the people I mentioned here today.  I cannot judge them.  I am not a lawyer, and I definitely am not G-d above.  But  I admonish my readers….pray for yourselves,  your governmental leaders, for the actors, and actresses,  media personalities,  and business leaders and the governments of our world…..our future depends on your tolerance of one another, and our support of one another. 

Have a good day!
