Hey, how can Evelyn, Tami and Shaunie be mean to anyone if all the folks they were mean to aren't on the show anymore? Bullying problem solved! Just get rid of all the victims. (Including Jennifer Williams who was slapped and wouldn't drop the charges and Royce Reed, who all the other women decided they hated many moons ago.) Although, this is probably for the best for Kesha Nichols, as girl should have never, ever done that show. Got that, ladies? If you challenge the big three in the world's worst illegally pledging sorority you will get dropped from the line. Also: Don't come to me crying when Kenya Bell finally goes all Michael Myers on you. You guys throw drinks, bottles, yell and slap people. She stabs folks. She's not stuck on Vh1's Basketball Wives with you, you're stuck on Vh1's Basketball Wives with her.

Vh-1's Basketball Wives wrapped its fourth season this spring and it was a boozy haze of fights, bullying, more fights, more bullying, pettiness and finally Tami Roman and Evelyn Lozada (who used to not care all that much for each other) coming together to form Rage Wonder Twins all over Tahiti. So, naturally, the reunion had to be about "Hey, we're not bullies in stilettos! Look! We're all going to sit here and pretend to be normal. We're normal. Look, NORMAL! Tee-hee!"
Hahahahaha. No, girl. Y'all not normal.
Ray J., Brandy's less talented, Z-list, porn star humping, soulless brother, has his own Flavor of Love/I Love New York/Rock-of-whatever-the-name-is-of-that-show-with-Bret-Michaels-and-the-80-year-old-cougar-groupies reality "dating" show.
From what I can gather it's about Ray J. and a bunch of extras left over from all the other reality shows they were rejected from. (Not pretty enough to open a suitcase on "Deal or No Deal," ladies? Too "hood" for "The Bachelor?") The abomination is co-produced by his mother. Sigh. Brandy, apparently, is not involved and for the love of "I Wanna Be Down" I hope she stays far, far away since she's got issues of her own. Never mind that last part. She's in on it too.
I know you all have poo-pooed my calls for the President to use the "bully pulpit" to decry the turdification of our culture (JFK, HSTruman, TRoosevelt all did with stunning success in transforming the American psyche; and yeah, culture has more influence on politics than policy in America folks). Here's the latest offense: VH-1 (yeah the execs and producers need to go to Gitmo) and For the Love of Ray-J. And who is Ray-J? Brandy's talentless retard of a brother, famous only because he hid his braunsweiger in the bubble butt of Kim Khardashian in a sex tape. Nothing more need be said. This makes I Love New York look like Hill Street Blues and the seminal Flavor of Love like M*A*S*H (TV show AND film). And isn't this long-minted racism: promoting a young black man purely on his hypersexuality, misguided ego and big wang? Ooops...that's right it's 2009, not 1909.
While I don't expect the president to get involved as Christopher has suggested, could someone, anyone talk to Viacom about this? I mean? Why? What is WRONG with Viacom? As I commented on Christopher's site:
Does VH-1/Viacom have some special welfare program for talentless colored people born without shame who are tangentially related to slightly more talented and/or famous black people? It's like the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, only it's more like Six Degrees of OJ Simpson.
Re: Kim K., who did the nasty with Ray J., is the daughter of the man who was one of OJ's buddies and defenders, you know? Until the Kardashians all decided he probably did kill Nicole. So really, for Ray J., that was two degrees to OJ. It might take me a little longer to find Flavor Flav's and New York's connections, but I'm sure they're there.
Surely these trainwreck shows must make the big dollars because, Sweet Jesus, capitalism is the ONLY way you can justify their mere existence.
