I’m a star ya’ll!
OK not exactly but maybe one day? When Wendy Williams was fresh on the TV scene I was in her studio audience. I was even in one of her commercials for the show! Unfortunately I don’t have any pictures from my moment of fame back then.
But alas, my time has again come!
There’s a brand new show airing this month on the Food Network called The Baker Sisters. Earlier this year they came to Atlanta to film an episode at Cami Cakes Cupcakes and I was in the building! I had sooooo much fun and the show’s crew was very professional about everything. I wasn’t able to get many photos because of the rules on set but it was a day to remember. And I got to eat a bunch of cupcakes for FREE?! Can you say “dream job?!”
Confession: before last month, I’d never watched A Different World. Go ahead, take away my Black Card. It’s been revoked on occasion before. When I was young the show wasn’t syndicated yet. I remember seeing a couple of episodes as I got older. But all I could remember is that Dwayne Wayne wound up with this crazy chick named Whitley Gilbert, Sinbad was in it and Mr. Gaines ran a restaurant at the college (yes, the college, I didn’t even know the name of the school). Because I’m not a big TV watcher, I didn’t place any importance on watching this or any other show.
Enter this guy who started calling me “Freddie.” Yeah, that might’ve been a cute way to flirt if I actually knew who the hell Freddie was. Since I suffer from mild narcissism, I decided to start watching the show on Netflix from the first season because this Freddie chick just had to be awesome. I was beginning to lose my patience because she doesn’t show up until the second season, but that’s not the point of this post…
I recently returned home to Maryland from Georgia. And boy was it an experience! I mean that in a good way!
I was told so many different things about Atlanta…
“You’ll never find a man there, everyone is gay and the DL culture is crazy!”
“It’s a close second to DC. You will love it!”
“You’re going to encounter racism – it’s right in your face.”
Sheesh! I didn’t know if I should be excited or scared. Never one to let other people’s opinions dictate what I do, I packed my leopard print suitcase and hit the road anyway.
Orange is the New Black – #OITNB for short, is currently one of my favorite shows. It’s a Netflix original series which means that all the episodes are released at once so you can watch them back to back instead of waiting a week between episodes. One of my best friends introduced me to the series right after the first season and I have been hooked ever since.
