The Quis Box meets Papi Chulo RADIO and I hope you all are ready. We are about to talk about everything pop culture, drama, juiciness, and everything in between. Censorship won’t be present. Here you will get it straight with no chaser…just some real unadulterated chit chat.
First off let’s talk about one of my favorite reality shows, Basketball Wives. Recently, this show aired the finale of its sixth season. For those who are not aware of this show, let me briefly update you. It was created by Shaunie O’Neal who is the ex-wife of NBA legend (and my favorite NBA player) Shaquille O’Neal. Shaunie is also the executive director of the show, or rather the HBIC. Originally when this show started years ago, it was based out of Miami. After about the second or third season, they extended the franchise to Los Angeles. Over the years there have been so many cast changes, divorces, location changes; to where now it is all based in one city, Los Angeles. Now the show is comprised of Shaunie O’Neal, Tami Roman (ex-wife of Kenny Anderson), Jackie Christie (wife of Doug Christie), Malaysia (ex-wife of some dude who use to play for the Chicago Bulls), and Evelyn Lozada; who as Tami Roman put it, “F*cked her way through 3 players’ associations). As if you didn’t know, Evelyn was engaged to Antoine Walker (NBA), married Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson (NFL), and was engaged to her 2nd baby daddy Carl Crawford (MLB). Who I recently found out from Bossip, done broke up. By adding Shaunie, Tami, and Evelyn to the show brought the Los Angeles franchise a significant increase in ratings. Cause Lord knows, the Los Angeles franchise needed a spark. Let’s be clear, this came along with a lot of D-R-A-M-A!!!
You had one girl who allegedly lied about having a miscarriage and according to her sister had an abortion. She have a celebrity stylist who admitted that she was sleeping with and was in love with a married ex-NBA player. Malaysia brought ex-cast member Brandi Maxiel around and that turned sour ‘cause no one that mattered wanted her around. Then there was my one of my top 3 FAVORITE basketball wives, Evelyn Lozada, who returned. This season was the first season that fans saw Evelyn Lozada be a part of the franchise in four years. In the mean time she worked hard on improving her image and had her own show on the Oprah Winfrey Network for 2 seasons. Baby there was so much drama and messiness this season and I loved every bit of it, minus anything associated with Jackie Christie. The real drama of the season was between Evelyn and Jackie Christie. First off, I think Jackie Christie is bat shit crazy and I don’t even know why she’s on the show anymore. I use to be able to tolerate her ignorance and foolishness but now it’s just beyond ridiculous. She looks a damn fool on TV and at somewhere around 50 years of age she has shown herself to be full of more shit than a baby’s diaper.
The issue between Evelyn and Jackie came about because Jackie’s oldest daughter who she has been estranged with for years, created a GoFundMe page for medical bills for her son. Of course the media went crazy because how Jackie got all this money (allegedly), you’re on a very successful show, and your daughter gotta create a GoFundMe page? The daughter has been very honest for a LONG time as to how Jackie treated her (a dark skinned fat girl) compared to her other sister (light skinned and smaller). Well Jackie’s grandson, who to this day she has never seen and doesn’t know his DOB, had a very bad accident at daycare. Well the picture of the child’s accident moved Evelyn to donate the $3,500 that was requested. Of course people being messy and wanting to create drama, alleged that Evelyn did it because she was trying to come for Jackie. I’m not sure who or what Jackie Christie is that would make her think THE Evelyn Lozada needed to waste her time coming for her but that was the underline tension during the season. Evelyn and Jackie don’t get along and prior to this past season never even knew each other. So why would Evelyn care two shits about this psycho woman. At one moment it seemed as if Jackie and Evelyn better understood each other and was working on a friendship. Then Jackie exhibited actions and lies that caused Evelyn to have enough of her. Jackie through around allegations of Evelyn being in her family business. When the situation was not Evelyn’s fault but the fact that Jackie’s daughter had their family business all in the freakin’ media. Jackie’s daughter would reach out to Evelyn and Evelyn would respond, but folks wanted to put all the blame on Evelyn. Personally, Evelyn and Jackie aren’t friends so they have no obligation to one another. I don’t see no issue with Evelyn responding when Jackie’s daughter would reach out to her. There were arguments, there was lots of outside opinions involved, and of course there was Jackie acting a damn fool in public and every chance she got. Shit really hit the fan when the women took a trip to New York and Jackie called Evelyn’s daughter a Build A Whore. Now just like me, you’re probably wondering what the hell is a Build a whore is? It’s when a parent grooms their child to grow up and become a slut…a whore basically. Now you don’t come for no one’s child and I don’t care how mad you are, children and spouses should be off limits. Of course Evelyn wanted to take this heifer’s head off. Lord, as the season progressed you had to be on egg shells to have them both in the same room. Personally I appreciated how Evelyn paid Jackie dust, ‘cause I’d a dang near spent most of my damn coins to pay someone to really fuck Jackie up. Jackie was so extra it was ridiculous and it annoyed me how her friends Tami and Malaysia enabled her foolishness. Although I love everything about me some Tami Roman, I sometimes felt as if she wasn’t being has transparent as she should’ve been with Jackie. However, I understood that she wanted to pretty much mind her damn business. It also didn’t help the drama of the show that Jackie’s daughter who she’s been estranged from, wrote a book about her that Evelyn, Jennifer (who I was so glad came back and her and Evelyn made up), and Shaunie all had advanced copies of. As soon as this book is released, I will be buying a copy. Just like Shaunie said about Jackie on the season finale “I am so done with Jackie Christie!” Personally I think Malaysia needs to return as a main character and Jackie needs to be fired or reduced to a smaller role. It has gotten to a point where Jackie Christie taints Basketball Wives more than she helps it. Lord, let’s move on. Enough about these women. To see how the drama continues, I will definitely be watching the reunion this coming Sunday at 9pm on VH1.
When I tell you those Kardashians will always keep them a check going. You can’t even look in the media without seeing at least one person from the Kardashian/Jenner Clan. This time I’m not talking about Kim nor Khloe. It’s all about the youngest. So Kylie Jenner who had an interesting relationship with her famous ex rapper boyfriend Tyga, now has her own spin off show. It’s called Life of Kylie. Keeping Up With The Kardashians has been on for 10 years, and now the baby of the family has stepped out on her own. Just like all of the other Kardashian shows, this one also comes on the E! Channel. My expectation going into the first episode? This was going to be foolishness and I wasn’t going to watch it past episode 1. I was pleasantly surprised. I actually really like the show. It showed a kind of infectiousness to Kylie’s personality actually. My heart went out to this girl. This was someone who didn’t ask to be famous. She was kind raised in this famous family, because Keeping Up With The Kardashians started when she was like 6-8 years old. So basically she had no choice but to be a part of this life. She was forced to be in front of the cameras at a very young age. The poor young woman knows nothing else. Everything about what I saw was someone who is forced by her family to be in the lime light, forced to be on social media, and forced to live her life constantly in front of the cameras. Yes, I’m sure she doesn’t regret all the money she has. But she looks so miserable around paparazzi and cameras that I feel so sorry for her. I’m sure if she could make her money without having to be so accessible to the public, she would. It’s clear from the show that she hates the life she lives, but she feels she has no choice but to live it. It’s as if she feels trapped within her own life. I just hope she doesn’t go cuckoo or lose her damn mind, or worse…all because she wants out, but can’t, and loses control. God forbid anything happens, I blame the momma and daddy for taking away her youth. We shall see what else I notice and how the future for this young woman goes…that’s it on them for now. Let’s move on to something else.
So to know me is to know I LOVE everything Rihanna. I am a proud member of Rihanna Navy and RiRi can do no wrong to me. Well except for some of her menfolk, but that’s neither here nor there. So I’m online, just scrolling, and Lord have mercy Jesus what did I come across??? But my Rihanna Fenty dressed in an amazing carnival costume. I always marvel at what this woman wears. I don’t care if she is half naked, which she is in the picture, or fully clothed (which is rare)…this woman’s beauty is ridiculous. This week in her Island of Barbados, they are celebrating what’s called Kadooment Day and she is their honored guest. Between the teal colors, feathers, and bedazzled outfit – this musical superstar was absolutely stunning. All these idiots that have been fat shamming her lately, because she has gained a few pounds are absolutely stupid. Rihanna has natural beauty and a womanly figure that women all over the world pay ridiculous amount of money for. The fact that folks are fat shaming Rihanna proves how superficial a bulk of our society is. Women all over the world suffer from fat shaming every day and some don’t handle it in the best ways. Nothing is more special than a woman who embraces and celebrates everything that she is regardless of shape, size, or color. It is obvious that Rihanna along with her banging body, extra pounds, new billionaire boyfriend, and all her other successes ain’t worried one bit about anything negative and I just love the glow and freedom she possesses. Reign on Miss RiRi…Reign on!
