I started out having no ego. A lot of peole see where I am now and they think it was given to me.
– The Tao of Diddy
Sorry it took a little while for me to get to this. Spent two hours watching Hip Hop Honors. Now I don’t even know why. It was alright but I wasn’t really impressed with the overall show. Now, I can get to the IW2W4D Finale!
Last week was hot because we saw the PA hopefulls flail on their first day at Bad Boy. Poprah got her shit READ by Diddy himself.
Yo. the look on Kim’s face when Diddy hit her with the, “thank you for applying for the position” line was pure confusion. She was flabbergasted. THEN, after she tried to explain herself, she came up with the real reason Diddy cancelled her: She’s overqualified for the position. Ohhhhhhhhhh. Okay. NOW the personal assistant position is a waste of her time. Poprah/Kim, spare me. You were so gung ho about this position ALL season long. Now that you’ve gotten the boot, working for Diddy is bullshit? I can’t believe how some people can convince themselves of anything. Overqualified?
Anywhoo. The Janelle Monae challenge continued: Put on a showcase. Looks like it went off without a hitch.
Like the wise man Teddy Riley once said. It. Ain’t. Over. Mission 10 jumps off: Present Your Case & Get The Job! The remaining 3 (Mike, Stef and Suzanne) must give a presentation to Diddy explaining why they should be the one to get the job and bring 3 items which represent what they will bring to Bad Boy. Kind of like show and tell, but for reality television.
I love interviews. I shine in an interview. Just get me in the room and I’m going to let this Bourgie Charm work it’s magic. So I was hoping they went in there and ripped it. Mike got up 1st. His message centered around him growing up as a knuckle-head from the Bronx who has drive and a passion to succeed.
Suzanne focused on a dream, Diddy’s dream, that she is committed to achieving as well.
Stefanie relied on the element of surprise. She promised that she would surprise Diddy if he hired her. He was surprised, alright, by the Jack-In-The-Box type of toy she brought as one of her items. Diddy hilariously felt like the monkey popping out of the box looked like a little Sambo and told her to put it away. SUPRISE NIGGA! Judging by the smile on her face, I don’t think she even knew what a Sambo was. I don’t think she’s ready to work for Diddy, yall. Diddy didn’t think so either. Bye Stef.
Left with Mike and Suzanne, Diddy was ready to go on vacation. Derrick, his stylist, directed Mike and Suzanne to pack the clothes without wrinkling them or crushing his hats… in an hour. About 25 pieces of luggage needed to get filled so Mr. Combs could diddy bop in Cannes. Once the pair lugged all the bags to the airport and loaded up the private jet, Diddy, Phil Robinson and Capricorn landed in a helicopter. Elimination right on the runway!!
Their weaknesses pointed out (Mike needs to grow up and Suzanne needs to learn how to run with the bad boys) they know that only one of them will get on the plane to Cannes.
Diddy: “Suzanne, you ready to come make some history with me? Congratulations.”
JAW DROP. I really thought Mike was going to get it. I know that brother is heartbroken because I could tell he really put it all in there. And to just watch that plane take off? Ugh.
Oop… back to Teddy Riley. It. Ain’t. Over. PARTY AIN’T OVER! Diddy stopped the plane and brought Mike on board. Diddy: “I got like 10 companies. Means I got a lot of room. Won’t you come with us?”
Now that’s an ending worthy of Sean Combs. It made me smile. I think Suzanne’s a bit dry, but she does have a good head on her shoulders. Mike is the spunk and sass of the two. Together they might actually add to Bad Boy. Hopefully now Mike has time to get a haircut, cuz he was looking peasy as hell on the finale.
Hmm, now what show will I keep tabs on for yall now?
Oh, and if you can’t get enough Poprah, I’m sure she’ll be around. In the meantime, You can buy Poprah’s single, “Up In The Club” at myspace.com/therealpoprah and check out her big girl clothing line at fatabulousclothing.com!
