“black-ish” and “Survivor’s Remorse” broach the topic of spanking and the Carters renew their vows. Plus, there’s my weekly watchlist and what’s hot (Leslie Jones joining ‘SNL’ cast) and not (Boko Haram’s latest kidnapping).
The weekend’s almost here and there’s lots to dish about today! Find out why Pharrell Williams named his new CD “G I R L,” who’s the latest star to join BET”s “Being Mary Jane,” which Bravo shows are returning for a second season and what recently canceled show found a home at BET.
Hello World! I hope you enjoyed your weekend as I spent the latter part of mine watching Oprah Winfrey interview Kevin Hart, observing the ladies of “Blood, Sweat & Heels” try not to kill one another and skimming headlines for news about your other favorite celebs.
If there’s anything reality TV shows have cemented in my mind it’s that most people don’t change, they just get older.
When “Blood, Sweat & Heels” star Demetria Lucas said she was “sometimes disappointed in how we behaved,” last night’s episode showed me what she meant.
“Blood, Sweat & Heels” is really trying a lot of folks’ patience. Members of Black Twitter have complained that the show seems to focus more on the six cast members’ social lives and inner friction instead of the inner-workings of their career.
If you’ve been watching Bravo’s “Blood, Sweat & Heels,” then you already know author and relationship blogger Demetria Lucas doesn’t mince her words.

Drama, high heels and career-minded women made Sunday night extra special for Bravo and the ladies of “Blood, Sweat & Heels.” The reality show debuted with 2.5 million viewers–the highest-rated series premiere in the network’s history.
