I cannot and will not watch the Real Housewives of Orange County or New York, but I loved the first season of Real Housewives of Atlanta and am already sucked in to the second season. So far Kandi seems too grounded to be one of the wives, but maybe it's only a matter of time before she shows her stripes. What happened to DeShawn, did she die of dullness? I guess she is still getting her masters degree online in divinity ...

Bad commercials

I hate the Olive Garden commercials. There, I said it.


So it was Latoya in the giant brimmed hat at the funeral whose face you couldn't really see - are they trying to stoke the rumor mill or what. I think it's cute that the city of LA thinks fan donations might help to cover the costs of the MJ tribute event - they set up a site that collected $17,000 and then crashed.

The King

Gone, but alive in our hears and our sartorial memories.
Long live The King, Michael Jackson.

Michael Jackson Tribute 3

Ok, you got me with the kids on stage and Jermaine and Marlon and his daughter talking about him. But who was the mysterious woman with the enormous brimmed hat? Not helping the rumors that have already started about Michael not actually being dead.


Michael Jackson Tribute Part 2

Usher, we love you, but lose the sunglasses. It's not that bright in the Staples Center.

Michael Jackson's Memorial Service

I have mixed feelings about the Michael Jackson memorial service/tribute concert. It's part spectacle and part wake, doubtless befitting the man, the legend. I almost didn't watch any of it, but am now glad I did.

Tuned in just as Magic Johnson was telling a story about KFC - I have no beef with Magic, but putting him and Kobe Bryant together at the podium wasn't exactly the greatest pairing of orators the world has seen ... the broadcast cut out then and when it finally came back on, Jennifer Hudson was singing with some random white skinny chick dancing behind her.

I'm a little unnerved by the family all wearing matching outfits complete with sparkly glove.

Did they really have the coffin there?

how much weight has Al Sharpton lost? Bariatric surgery?
I thought his speech was good until he told Jacko's kids, "there wasn't anything strange about your daddy." Not sure history will agree with you, Reverend.

Enjoyed John Mayer's guitar version of Human Nature.

Brooke Shields is a dork.
