We’ve got a lot to discuss …

B4F57250-68DD-47FC-AD37-187E2385E71A

Monday Night: OC Part 2

  • Two minutes in and my blood is already boiling against Vicki.
  • Oh, a Vicki apology? And now I guess we’re done with the cocaine comment … ?
  • What does David do for money?
  • Next season I want to see Shannon with a nice man!
  • “We shouldn’t show it if you didn’t remember it?”
  • Tamra talking about how Shannon is so reactive …

  • What New York trip are they talking about … ??
  • Shannon does play victim, but I also think Tamra exaggerates.

Next week … looks like the Shannon/Tamra feud continues, and we finally get to hear all thoughts on Shane’s dweeby personality. 

Wednesday Night: Dallas Part 1

  • Hahaha Brandi’s face during that “meditation”
  • I wouldn’t say LeeAnne carries the show, but she does make it VERY entertaining!
  • That was D’Andra’s big secret … ?? Heresay?? So DUMB!
  • I’m so happy to see Cary stick up for Kameron and LeeAnne … honestly I really enjoyed Cary this season (even if it did seem like she played both sides).
  • I. Relate. To. Stephanie. So. Much!! and because of that I just love love love love her.
  • “I don’t need to know who looks at your pussy” BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!
  • I so so so so agree with Stephanie that the feud with Brandi and LeeAnne is tit for tat and deep rooted in last season.
  • Andy is so much like a therapist, well, at times …

Next week … looks like Momma Dee will be here (this time choosing to defend D’Andra), we discuss “phone gate” and D’Andra continues to go in on LeeAnne (about Rich!).

In closing…      same dress??

 

Movie of the Week: Life-Size 2 (pocket-sized post)

Nostalgia and Christmas …

can warm even this cynic’s heart. One of my besties came over to watch it, we gorged on pizza, honestly, it was just what I needed to end a treacherous Monday. The movie was not great (what, like you expected it to be?), but there were so many great moments, that the film in it’s entirety is excused.

Tyra

Image result for life size 2

Straight up, girlfriend is, gor -gina! I looked up pictures from the first movie and she’s stunning then, but 18 years later? No wrinkles in sight, flaw – less !! Not only did she look just like a doll, she acted just like the character from the first movie. Plus, she was funny; she had so many laugh out loud moments. Honestly I would have preferred an entire movie just of Tyra.

References

I’m a sucker for anything late 90s/early 2000s, aka my childhood (Movie of the Week: Hey Arnold! The Jungle Movie … hello??). The Parent Trap and Life-Size inspiiiired me to be Lindsay Lohan (who really is having a moment without being seen, what, with this reboot, and Ari’s “Thank You, Next” video). There was a brief reference to her character in this version, but what I liked most was how Lindsay’s Eve doll gave the 2018 Eve doll a pep talk. Also, who caught the ANTM reference??

Image result for we were all rooting for you gif

If you’ve seen the first movie, watch this one. If you like sappy, Hallmark Christmas movies, watch this one. It’s not completely terrible. The main character is terrible, but Tyra makes up for it. Plus, the guy in it is pretty hot. And, if not for all of that … not only do you get an original version performance of “Be a Star” in the film … you get this one too!

RHOC Reunion Part 1: “Low Blow Gunvalson”

“Lies A. Minnelli!!”

Best quote of the night! Or it possibly could have been Kelly calling Vicki a fart (“silent but deadly”)! Overall, part one of the OC Reunion was basically just a Kelly vs. Vicki match, which was super surprising to me because I thought they were all good. Guess not.

Image result for you're like a fart, silent but deadly kelly dodd

Researching their feud a little more after watching last night, Kelly said that she thought the two of them left the reunion on good terms, but watching the promo brought back the emotions for Kelly in regards to Vicki’s hurtful words and accusations. Honestly, I had no idea how serious it was between the two of them, so much so, that Kelly said she wouldn’t return next season unless Vicki was off the show.

Image result for kelly dodd gif

At first, I thought their fight was over Vicki setting Michael up on a date and not telling Kelly, only to then double date with Michael and his female friend (who it turned out was a mutual friend of both Vicki and Kelly!!). Strike one Vicki. Not only did Vicki strike out there during the season, but within the first 10 minutes of last night’s reunion, Vicki had strike two in which she showed her hypocritical side (a very big side of  her) when she said she didn’t want to be a “party girl” anymore, or one who went to out bars all the time, yet got wasted in Mexico at Andales this season (and also partied it up intensely again in Jamaica).

Image result for vicki gunvalson jamaica

Eek!

Strike two ya hypocrite. But honestly, the straw that broke the camel’s back for how absurd Vicki is came when she spouted off that Kelly not only does cocaine, but she’s never with her daughter, only to then backpedal and say that their visitation arrangement is between “you and Michael.”

Image result for kelly dodd and vicki

Image result for kelly dodd and vicki

What was most shocking to me as I watched (and not just because I’m team Kelly) was how nonchalant Vicki was in saying everything. She kept such a straight face and seemed to just blame it on the fact that Kelly called her fat or compared her to a fart. Even Tamra and Shannon couldn’t seem to get through to Vicki that the accusations she was making were intense. But …

Image result for vicki gunvalson jamaica gif

She accused David of beating Shannon, Eddie of being gay, and then there was the Brooks of it all. She ruins relationships and hurts families through her words (& lies) and here she is now doing it to Kelly. Strike three Vic. I really hope she’s not saying these awful things just to secure her spot on the show, but I could totes see that happening now that OGs can be cut (ahem LVP). Ahh, suppose we’ll see how this ends in the next two weeks (it’s a three parter right?) with the continuation of the reunion. But for now … whose side are you on?

Movie of the Week: A Star is Born

“I’m off the deep end, watch as I dive in…”

I realize this movie has been out for what seems like forever, and MHH had yet to review it. Honestly, I wasn’t even sure I was going to because I had so many mixed emotions regarding the film. It took me a couple weeks to process what I watched, but I think I’m ready to discuss now!

The Good

1. Bradley Cooper’s acting.

Image result for a star is born bradley cooper gif

I like Bradley Cooper as an actor, but I don’t think I like like him as an actor. I don’t run to the theater to see a Bradley Cooper film, but Star is Born may have changed that. Not only did I believe him as a singer (and don’t mind listening to him on the soundtrack), but I completely bought into the fact that he was a troubled addict. He made his character seem so sloppy and in constant need of a bath with that greasy hair. He absolutely committed to the part, brought pain to the story, and should without a doubt win all the awards for his role.

2. The music.

Image result for a star is born 2018 gif

Whether you’re a fan of rock, country, or pop music there is something for you in this film. Whether you love “Born This Way” Gaga or Joanne Gaga, she’ll give you something in this film (I more prefer Joanne to be honest). Fun fact: if you didn’t know, many of those festival performances were real, including an actual Coachella performance. Don’t believe me? Click here to read about it!

My favorite Gaga solo songs included “Look What We’ve Found” and “Always Remember Us This Way;” oh! and if “I’ll Never Love Again” doesn’t win every Best Song category during award season, the whole system is SERIOUSLY DISTURBED! I loved all the Cooper/Gaga collabs too, including “Music to My Eyes,” “Diggin’ My Grave,” and OBVIOUSLY “Shallow.” Even if you don’t think the film will be your cup of tea, watch it just for the music!

The Not So Good

1. Lady Gaga as Ally

Image result for a star is born cast lady gaga gif

I don’t blame her acting and I’m not here to announce that she is a bad actress. This happens with some of my favorite actors/actresses and Lady Gaga falls into it. I simply could not suspend my disbelief with her while watching. I never bought into the Ally/ Jackson love story because I just kept seeing Lady Gaga next to Bradley Cooper. I did mention how great BC acted and yes, he became his character, but honestly I think he needed a different lead (albeit I have no idea who could have played the part … so maybe I should just shut up now).

2. Sadness

Image result for a star is born 2018 gif

Warning ** spoilers ahead  **so maybe stop reading now if you haven’t seen the film.

I had no idea prior to watching that Bradley Cooper’s character was an alcoholic and drug addict (come to find out this is the case in all three films). Not only that, but his demons with his father and his brother were hard to watch too. While his ending was ruined for me by a friend, everything leading up to it, especially the scene where he called her ugly and the Grammy speech, were torture to watch. I had a really really hard time being emotional at the end of the movie while she was singing “I’ll Never Love Again.” If anything, I felt anger. I was angry at Cooper’s character for leaving Ally. If she was his absolute, one true love, he should have got clean for her … regardless of what that dweeb manager of hers said. I was so pissed at him for leaving her in the end and honestly, it ruined the movie for me and that’s why I can’t love it as much as the rest of the world.

All in all, see the movie. In fact, see it twice (I think I need to re-watch it myself) and see the Babs version as well as the Judy Garland version. The music is too too good for you not to see it. Bradley Cooper is too too good for you not to see it. And I’ll always love Gaga, she can do no wrong (Can we please talk about Lady Gaga?), so there is the third and final reason to see the film.

Then come find me and let’s discuss! 

Riverdale: So Bad It’s Good

Who here watches Grey’s Anatomy? 

And if you thought this was a Riverdale post, I’m going somewhere with this, I promise. I was a Grey’s STAN until the show got out of control: Meredith almost drowns, the whole Denny debacle,  George’s death, the hospital getting shot up, the airplane crash, Lexi & Mark’s death, etc etc etc …

Image result for seattle grace mercy death gif

My whole point with the Grey’s reference is that the story lines got so so so far gone, I couldn’t watch anymore. This brings us to Riverdale. Is the show heading in the Grey direction? Let’s investigate.

Season 1:

Image result for season 1 riverdale gif

Aka .. the best season. Honestly, the show could have stopped after its first season because everything came together brilliantly. I loved how the entire season was centered around who killed Jason Blossom … and the big reveal (regarding his father) was the perfect twist. While Archie was intolerable this season (remember when he was banging his teacher?!), the sub plots with Chuck Clayton, Polly Cooper, & Fred’s business made up for it. The mystery surrounding Jason got solved in the end, leaving us all excited for a second season and nonstop wondering where the show will take us.

Season 2:

Image result for season 2 riverdale gif

Things started to get a little out of control in season 2. While I suppose the plot of the Black Hood was interesante, I felt it was too similar to the first season (hunt for a killer again … ??). THEN there was the Nick St. Clair of it all, Jingle Jangle, Bughead drama (ugh and her striptease?), Mayor and Sheriff boning, the Riverdale Reeper, and Hiram Lodge.

Image result for hiram lodge gif

The plot line with Hiram acting like a “mob boss” and getting Archie to do all this dirty work of his (as a high schooler no doubt) was so ridiculous and I felt had nothing to do with finding the Black Hood (which I thought was the central plot of the season; was it not?). Then there was the whole mayoral campaign between Fred and Hermione, plus the second MOST RIDICULOUS sub plot EVER: Chic.

Image result for chic cooper gif

Seriously … WHAT did he have to do with the story line besides get Betty and her mom wrapped up in murder? Zip, zilch, nada! Speaking of Betty’s f’ed up family, the final nail in the horrible coffin that was season 2, was the reveal that Hal was the Black Hood.

Betty we all have a darkness in us!

Image result for roll eye gif riverdale

Season 3:

After all of that, the show could not get any more dumb. Enter Gryphons and Gargoyles.

Image result for gargoyle king riverdale gif

I’m not even going to waste my time describing my thoughts on this plot; I’ll let the image above speak for itself.

And yet … and yet … Riverdale is one of the shows I watch live every week; I never let it back up on the DVR. Why is that? How does something very far gone with ridiculousness hold my attention so close that I abandon my husband for an hour every Wednesday night to see what happens? In fact, it’s more of a “must know” what happens feeling.

Perhaps, the show knows how out of control the story is; maybe the writers and actors are all in on the joke.   Image result for shrug shoulders emoji  Or, perhaps it’s a show made for teens, starring teens (or close to it) and it’s not something to be taken too seriously. It helps viewers (especially teens) escape from the pressures of the real world … I mean, reality is pretty messed up, but at least we don’t have to fear a Gargoyle King.

Image result for am i right gif

Regardless, I’ll keep watching, but remember Riverdale …     Image result for riverdale gif

 

Housewives Updates … and Happy 100th post!

Image result for 100 gif

I can not believe my silly little hobby has reached its one hundredth post! I would like to thank my husband for leaving me alone with the upstairs television to watch Bravo (or maybe he leaves me alone because I’m watching Bravo …?), Instagram & Twitter for allowing me to connect with other pop culture fans, as well as trash talk those celebs we don’t particularly like, all my friends who love the same shows I do and gossip about them with me (Mack = Housewives, B = Bachelor, Lyssie = Queer Eye), and anyone who chooses to read what I write or take an interest in it … and for all those who don’t? You’re missing out!

Image result for your loss gif

Obviously, #100 had to be Bravo related because without Bravo, MHH wouldn’t exist … see below for my thoughts on everything Housewife related from this week. Don’t forget to view all 99 past posts by clicking up in the right hand corner. Follow me on IG and Twitter too! Happy reading and here’s to 100 more!

  • OC: I almost had to write up an entire post about psycho Shannon, however, I guess everything worked itself out between her and the ladies in Jamaica because she made up with everyone on last week’s episode. Gina, though, continues to keep that plot line going on tomorrow’s episode, stirring the friendship pot between Shannon & Tamra. Oh! And the reunion was recently filmed; looking forward to that!
  • Dallas: LeeAnne should not, should not, should not have used the word “alcoholic” but I don’t think I can ever be team D’Andra, no matter how in the wrong everyone else is. I also decided that Stephanie is my new housewife QUEEN  —> love love love her! Their reunion films soon too!
  • New Jersey: Season 9 starts this week. I’ve been so disappointed by the past few seasons of NJ, yet Andy says this season brings it all back to like, early season vibes … do we believe him? Guess we’ll find out Wednesday!
  • RHOA: Premiered tonight (yes, it’s on the dvr; will probs watch tomorrow before OC)! Congrats goes out to Kenya who gave birth to her first child … and a second congrats to Kenya because we don’t have to watch her this season! 😀
  • Beverly Hills: These ladies absolutely WON Halloween (Rinna as Erika Jayne?! DEAD!), so I’m very very pumped for them to return to my television, especially because there is going to be some maaaad drama with LVP I think! Pretty sure she won’t shoot with the ladies, or they’re currently not wanting to film with her!
  • Pump Rules: While they are technically not housewives (except for Lala, who I predict will soon transition to RHOB), did you see the trailer for the new season!? ANYONE AS EXCITED AS I AM?!?!?!?! If you missed the trailer, I posted it below. I’m ready to see how the Brittany/Jax proposal went down, see James’s robot girlfriend get shut down by Lala, see where Scheana has been (besides salty on Twitter), and finally see Stassi in a positive relationship (and Beau on my screen!) … oh, and see how things haven’t changed much for “That was so trashy” Kristen.

Hope you all have a wonderful, drama-free week!

Movie(s) of the Week: Bad Times at the El Royale, First Man, a Simple Favor

The hubs and I needed an escape from our busy lives, so off we went to the movies! We couldn’t decide on just one, so we saw two. Then, my best friend called, asking for a girls’ day at the movies! I couldn’t pass that up either, so here we are for a review of three popular films currently in theaters!

Image result for lets all go to the lobby gif
I’m never quite sure how to write my Movie of the Week posts (for all of them, click up in the right hand of the screen!). Do I write a review, as if readers have seen the movie? Do I write a promotion, in which I leave out spoilers and more so convince readers to go or not go? I decided today I’ll walk the fine line between both and you can skip over or read whatever you choose (although I’d prefer you read everything, as well as like and subscribe –> enter email in top right!)

Bad Times at the El Royale

Image result for bad times at the el royale poster

A bunch a strangers meet up one weekend at the famous El Royale hotel, yet nothing is quite what it seems. I. loved. everything. about. this. movie!! EV-ERY-THING! Let’s start with the opening scene where a man buries a bag in the floorboards of a hotel room, only to not make it out alive. Flash forward to either the 1960s or 1970s (let’s call it an even 1965), where guests are starting to arrive back at the hotel. Okay you think, I know where this is going … obviously all the guests are there to get the money. Which, could not be further from the truth.

Image result for bad times at the el royale gif

Each character has a unique story and is featured during different sections of the movie, where the audience learns their background and motivation. And, if you think you’ve figured out what will happen next, you’re wrong … I mean, unless you’re correct, but I find that very unlikely because the plot twists here are not normal. When I read or watch a movie, I just want a really, well-told story, and El Royale provides that. In closing, while the film has many Quentin Taratino vibes (“imitation is the highest form of flattery”), I would completely give it a 10/10, encourage you to see it, and give HUGE PROPS to Cynthia Erivo; she stole the show!

First Man

Image result for first man poster

Ryan Gosling portrays Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon. Claire Foy, who LOVE from The Crown, plays Gosling’s wife. I enjoy a good biopic and have always enjoyed films about space: Armageddon, Apollo 13, Hidden Figures, however, I could not have been more displeased with this film. In fact, my husband and I did something I’m not sure we’ve ever done before: we walked out.

Image result for first man gif

I am very disappointed in us for leaving, but the movie was soooooooooo slow and sooooooooo boring … and fairly confusing. Basically, early on in the film Armstrong’s daughter dies, then all of a sudden he’s going on a space mission (which I thought was to the moon and found out was just a trial run), all while he’s having probs with his wife?? Maybe seeing two movies in one day was a bad idea for the hubs and I … or possibly so much went on in El Royale,  I couldn’t track this one? Or maybe it was the two glasses of wine I had at dinner before? #whoops. I’m sure when First Man is released to DVD, we’ll try watching it again. Gosling, Foy, and the American people deserve that much from us.

A Simple Favor

Image result for a simple favor poster

Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively star as best friends with dark secrets in this film based off the novel by Darcey Bell (which I obviously read and so should you!). My favorite thing about this movie is you never fully know who to trust or who you should be rooting for. Is Kendrick the evil one or is Lively? Or, in the end, is it ultimately the husband who commits all the crimes & sins, and keeps all the secrets?

Image result for a simple favor gif

This movie is twisted for including topics like incest, sibling murder, fake deaths, and all around insane characters. I feel like Blake Lively has Serena wan der Woodson vibes with her classy outfits and sassy attitude, all the while oozing sexuality. I can’t pinpoint who Anna Kendrick channels, probably that of a mouse. Henry Golding (from Crazy Rich Asians) is another added bonus to the film. I don’t think this film is a 10/10, but if you’re a Lifetime Movie fan or appreciate a crazy ass plot, then I definitely recommend A Simple Favor for you!

American Music Awards 2018 Recap

I don’t even know why I decided to watch this award show. I don’t know any of the performers or winners besides Taylor, Mariah, and Jennifer. I mean, the AMAs I grew up obsessing over brought me moments like these …

Image result for american music awards justin and britney

Seriously, the only thing I listen to is a rotation of Taylor, Justin, and Sam Smith (with some Shawn Mendes thrown in there; I LOVE HIS NEW ALBUM!). Other than that, I only listen to podcasts. Snobby much? But, I live for an award show or possible pop culture moment, so let’s get into it!

Hour 1:

Image result for american music awards 2018 taylor swift

The beginning of the whole show was my favorite part for many reasons: a) I was still awake for it b) Taylor Taylor Taylor Taylor Taylor c) the Shawn Mendas performance (la la la la love him!), d) that Ella Mai song (!!) which is now my new jam! e) seeing Mariah (note that I didn’t type “enjoying” Mariah).

As far as everything else, I’m a little peeved Justin Timberlake wasn’t nominated for favorite pop male artist, but whatever, I get that the awards are for mainly mainstream music. I’m a lot peeved by Tracee Ellis Ross; can she be more annoying and thirsty? I don’t watch Blackish, so maybe that’s why I don’t get her. I mean, she danced well and made a few funny comments … buuuut, well, I guess I’ll just stop there. Give me more Taylor.

Hour 2:

Screenshot 2018-10-09 at 8.23.32 PM

The middle of the show started strong with Cardi B performing, again, don’t particularly love her like everyone else, but I really think it’s just me not being in tune because I’m an old lady. I still listen to music that was popular twenty years ago and I won’t change. Anyway, I was really really happy to see Shawn Mendas win an award (but for adult comtempory waaah??), could have totes skipped the Halsey performance, and while I adore JLo so much, I didn’t necessarily enjoy the song she sang and felt it was a little too plug worthy (she looked a-maze-ing though!)

Hour 3:

Image result for eeek face

I turned it off. It really had nothing to do with the show, but more so with the book I’m currently reading and wanted to finish, The Dark Matter. Oh gosh, am I officially really old? The only thing I wanted to see that I missed was the Aretha tribute (which I caught on Twitter the next day).

I find that these feelings of not enjoying music award shows increases with each one I watch. I skipped the VMAs this year, the Grammys were boring, and here we are with me shutting off with the AMAs before the show was even over. If you know anything about MHH, I live for an award show (any kind), I mean click up in the right hand of this page and see all the posts written about awards shows from the past year and half. But, I think music award shows are slowly fading into the background for me, mostly because I choose the music I listen to; I don’t let award shows or the charts decide for me.

Image result for okurrr gif

Plus, Tracee Ross Ellis is so damn annoying!

Movie of the Week: Crazy Rich Asians

Image result for crazy rich asians gif

Unless you’ve been living under a large rock, chances are you’ve seen a preview for, or have heard someone talking about Crazy Rich Asians, the new film based off the novel by Kevin Kwan, starring Constance Wu and Henry Golding. The premise is simply: he’s rich, she’s not, they’re dating, how will this work out?

Image result for crazy rich asians gif

Like any rom com, it doesn’t work out at first , things get messy, but they all live happily ever after in the end. It’s a great film for mothers and daughters to see, to fall in love with love, or to help you realize, that at the end of the day, you are enough … don’t change for anyone. However, the movie wasn’t anything life altering for me as promised by the reviews. The film is a cute story, rather predictable, with humorous moments. The glamour, music, and actors, though, was what I enjoyed most!

Image result for crazy rich asians glam

First up, the glam: the colors, the parties, and that moment when Araminta Lee, played by Sonoya Mizuno, walked down the aisle with the water and the grass and those cute little lighty things the guests held up! M – A – G – I – C – A – L !!!! All the colors reminded me of La La Land, but what I loved more was the film was set outside of America. We got to witness the color, splendor, and glam of Singapore (and honestly Singapore better dish some cash for the free travel promotions!). Story aside, the film was just magnificent to look at.

Image result for crazy rich asians soundtrack

Boosting up the visual beauty of the film was the music; honestly, it was just as important to the storytelling as was the backdrop. The wedding scene wouldn’t have been as beautiful as I mentioned if not for Kina Grannis singing “Can’t Help Falling in Love” in her angelic voice. The glitz and glam and fun outfits wouldn’t have fully popped if not for songs like “Material Girl” & “Money (That’s What I Want)” … and sung in Chinese! The music helped fuse the setting with the storytelling, while also making the film more lively.

Image result for crazy rich asians glam

So yes, we have an enjoyable rom com plot, but the setting and soundtrack enhance the film. However, something more needs to go into the mixture to be complete and that something is the cast. Let’s just go down the list shall we? Constance Wu is not only one of the most gorgeous women I’ve ever seen, she also played her character beyoooond! Like, pleeeease Rachel Chu will you be my new bestie?! Henry Golding, with his British accent and nonchalant attitude towards his family’s wealth? Hubba hubba. No words can even describe how much Awkwafina’s character adds to the film, and finally … Gemma Chan. If Rachel Chu is my new bestie, then can Astrid Leong-Teo, ohh I don’t know, BE MY WIFE?! Her character is kind, poised, beautiful as hell, and all around my favorite character from the film.

Image result for gemma chan gif crazy rich asians

Overall, an enjoyable film to see on a Sunday afternoon with both my mom and mother-in-law (who loves me by the way; nothing like in the film LOL!). While I wasn’t on the floor from it’s greatness (ie … To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before), the setting, soundtrack, and cast made it a fun experience!

Emmy Recap

Yesterday and all day today, every time I scroll Instagram, E! shares another photo from Monday’s 70th Primetime Emmy Awards. So I thought, I’ll write a recap, and here we are.

What I learned from watching the Emmys is that I clearly don’t watch as much TV as I thought I did … or I just don’t watch what is important. I was so beyond bored as I sat through all the Comedy and Limited Series awards. I don’t watch a single one of those shows. I get my comedy from Real Housewives and a Parks & Recs Netflix binge … the only limited series I watched this year was Waco, which I saw was nominated like once and lost.

Soooooo, what I’m getting at is … you were looking for my thoughts on the first two hours of awards?

Image result for I have none gif

One thing we can discuss? Fashion!! Some of my favorite looks included Emilia Clarke, Sandra Oh, and Ellie Kemper.Image result for emilia clarke emmys 2018Image result for sandra oh emmysImage result for ellie kemper emmys 2018

My favorite couple looks were ScarJo & Colin … and obviously Jessica & Justin! Which, now that I see them side by side, maybe they were my favs because they were so similar??

Image result for scarlett johansson and colin jost emmys      Image result for justin and jessica emmys

As for bad fashion? I was NOT here for Regina King as a highlighter, Tracee Ellis Ross as a teen girl’s comforter, or Chrissy Ty-ginn’s high neck chain gang look. Not posting pics because they were truly heinous (name that movie!).

Side bar: Why did I spell CT’s name like that? Haven’t you heard?? We’ve been saying it wrong all these years … along with Ariana Grande’s name! Plus, Burt and Ernie are gay together, and Kylie Jenner just tried milk in her cereal for the first time … LIKE, WHAT IS THE WORLD WE LIVE IN AND THE BULLS*** THAT MAKES THE NEWS?! That I then must report on …      Image result for side smile gif

Moving on … I don’t know if it was the wine I was drinking, but I thought Colin and Michael were really funny, although some jokes and skits didn’t land (especially Maya Rudolph & Fred Armisen). In fact, much of the show felt like SNL skits … but honestly, I didn’t mind because I love Saturday Night Live. Clearly I have good taste because it won it’s 65th Emmy during the award show (at least, google said it was the show’s 65th award).

Image result for snl gif

It wasn’t until about two & a half hours in that I started getting excited. That was about the time Darren Criss won for American Crime Story and John Mulaney won for his stand-up! And if those two awards didn’t wake you up …… did the unexpected proposal??? You can read the whole story here! As cynical as I usually am, I thought it was super sweet!

Finally, just as I was about to turn the show off, I started to hear Game of Thrones, Westworld, This is Us, and The Crown. My category has arrived!

Image result for drama

Seriously, I was like a proud momma seeing Peter Dinklage, Thandie Newton, and Claire Foy win! Then … Game of Thrones taking Best Drama Series?!

Image result for who saw that coming gif

I mean, I hoped, but you don’t take over a year, almost two, off and still win do you? YOU DO! I’m currently reading the second book in the series in prep for 2019 and just so I still have some GOT in my life (I also play the theme at any jukebox bar I can find!). Bend the knee, it’s still the best on TV!

I live tweeted the show; always go check me out on Twitter (find links when you scroll alllllll the way to the bottom of the blog –> IG is there too!). On deck this week is #RHOC & #RHOD, plus the hubs and I started watching Mayans M.C., the Sons spin off, and I plan to watch Sierra Burgess soon too!

Happy reading, happy watching, happy discussing all the ridiculousness pop culture offers us!
