Judge Mathis Has Been Sued

This person needs to sit down somewhere. When she agreed to be on the show, she knew exactly what she was getting herself into. I don’t buy it.

*A woman who appeared as a litigant on TV’s “Judge Mathis” court show is suing Greg Mathis, Warner Bros and Telepictures claiming she was not informed about his current judicial status and was disparaged when Mathis referred to her as a hillbilly. To read more…

I Love New York 2

Last night I was doing a radio interview on The Just About Books Radio Show so I missed the premiere of I Love New York 2. 

Unfortunately, the time of this show conflicts with Girlfriends and The Game; so I will have to watch the show when it comes on the 2nd time. Speaking of The Game, can someone tell me what happened Monday night?

I did find this link for a show recap:  Episode Main Page: I Love New York 2: Let’s Do It Again

Monday Night is CW Night – Repeat

My friends know if they want to talk to me, they need to contact me before 7 pm; otherwise I will talk to them at 10 pm.

Monday night is a CW night:

Everybody Hates Chris – Got to love this show. Little Chris is always getting into something.

Girlfriends – I’ve been watching this show since it first aired. I admit it’s different now that the character Toni isn’t on there, but I’m still remaining faithful to the show. Last season Joan finally got her man. I wonder what’s in store this season. Please pay Jill more money so she’ll revise the role of Toni.

The Game – I just fell in love with this show. It made me want to watch football and I absolutely hate football. Well hate is a strong word; I don’t like football is a better way to say it. But anyway, this became one of my favorite shows last year.

9 p.m. I have to skip over to CBS and watch CSI Miami. Did anyone see CSI Miami or CSI this past Thursday?

Fall TV Line up – Watch Nights

The new shows start this week. I’ve been busy doing so many other things over the summer that it’ll be hard to get back on a regular TV watching schedule. With some of my favorite shows premiering season openers this week, if you call after 7 pm, you might not get an answer.

Below are some of the shows that I like and plan on watching. Game plan for the Fall – Work and Write books during the day and Watch TV and Read books during the night. 

Favorite Game Shows

Deal or No Deal – NBC (I saw it last week and this guy had the $1 million case but had accepted the offer already. I know he was sick.)

The Power of 10 – CBS

Monday night is a CW night:

Everybody Hates Chris – Got to love this show. Little Chris is always getting into something.

Girlfriends – I’ve been watching this show since it first aired. I admit it’s different that the character Toni isn’t on there, but I’m still remaining faithful on the show. Last season Joan finally got her man. I wonder what’s in store this season. Please pay Jill more money so she’ll revise the role of Toni.

The Game – I just fell in love with this show. It made me want to watch football and I absolutely hate football. Well hate is a strong word; I don’t like football is a better way to say it. But anyway, this became one of my favorite shows last year.

9 p.m. I have to skip over to CBS

CSI Miami – If I don’t watch any other show on Monday, I try to catch an episode of this show. I’ve been to Miami on many occasions and grant it, it’s an exciting place to visit; but it just wasn’t as exciting as this show. This show makes it “the place to be.”

Tuesday night

The Unit (CBS) – It’s just something about seeing a Black man in a positive role that turns me on and the fact the crew gets into some life threatening situations don’t hurt either.

Cane (CBS) – I saw the previews and the lead character, well he’s hot and truthfully that’s one of the main reasons why I’ll be watching it. The verdict is out on whether or not it’ll be a good show.

Wednesday  night – toss up

Criminal Minds (CBS) – I love these type of shows. One of the characters won’t be back this season which is upsetting, so I’ll see how it goes. I liked the original cast.

Gossip Girl (CW) – Based on the novels, I will give this show a chance and see if it’s something I would want a teenager to watch.

Thursday Night is the Night

UGLY BETTY (ABC) I didn’t start watching this show until it went into re-runs after the 1st season; but since then I’ve been hooked. I’m curious to see if Betty’s Dad will make it back across the border. Vanessa Williams role as the prima diva is hilarious.

CSI – Original (Las Vegas…CBS) – I hope nothing comes up because the cliffhanger at the end of last season will surely find me in front of the tube watching this on Thursday. The minature killer has struck again and this time close to home.

Without a Trace (CBS) – A good show bringing awareness to missing people.

Friday Before Leaving for a Date (well that is, if I have a date)

Ghost Whisperer (CBS) – Something fascinating about the paranormal.

Sunday Nights – Hmm

Desperate Housewives (ABC) – I didn’t watch too many episodes last season after the previous seasons ridiculous Alfre Woodard storyline, but I’ll see what’s happening in the first few shows to see if I want to return to watching it on a regular basis.

And whenever Lifetime brings back Army Wives, I plan on watching it too.

K’ Ville starring Anthony Anderson came on last week and I liked it so depending on the regular scheduled time, I will alternate watching it.

Well that’s my Fall TV Line UP commentary. What shows do you look forward to seeing and what shows can you do without?

Meet the I Love New York Contestants

I was surfing the net at 1 in the morning and came across this mess. I mean information about the VH1 Reality Show “I Love New York.”

I’m all for entertainment, but sometimes you can go a little too far. One of the contestants competing for New York’s heart is Midget Mac. He’s the one standing by New York in white. To read more…

2007 MTV Video Music Awards Recap

Video | Viva Las Vegas! Rate The VMAs!Britney Spears opened up the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards show with an okay performance. I didn’t like the outfit, well what little there was, but those were some slamming boots. Britney seemed a little stiff and some of her dance moves forced.I’m sure it was just Britney being nervous. Did I say I loved the boots?

Silverman did a few jokes. Some I got; some I didn’t.

Alicia Keys was stunning. I loved her dress and her hair. Rihanna won one of the first awards. Her dress was a little too long but it was a pretty color.

Fifty and Kanye squashed the rumors of a so-called beef during pre-show interviews as well as partnering to give out the Best Collaboration award, which Beyonce and Shakira won.

I love me some T.I. He had the crowd rocking.

Chris Brown is a very talented young man. I enjoyed his performance; although he did more dancing than singing 🙂

Army Wives Season Finale airs on Lifetime

Army Wives on Lifetime has become one of my favorite shows to watch. It’s hard to pinpoint why. Maybe because it reminds me of the time of when my fiance (now ex-fiance) was in the service and I was left behind when he fought in the Gulf War. Anyway, if you haven’t seen the show; definately check it out in re-runs. If you do watch it, chime in and let’s discuss.

Lifetime

Update: The summer’s hottest new series ended in almost a bang. Frank, Trevor and Chase are deployed. I like the way the show portrayed the emotional good-byes. It was realistic.  Some of the surprises was the person you thought would be pregnant wasn’t but someone you least expected to be pregnant was. It was appropriate that the show ended with them all at the bar. The surpise was when a disgruntle army husband walks in wearing a bomb. (I sort of figured he would be the culprit)…anyway, just when he gets ready to hit the trigger, the show goes off and Lifetime airs a clip of Halle Berry’s upcoming new movie. Now we have to wait until next season to see if he blows up the place, will anyone get hurt or will he come to his senses.

Star Jones on Court TV

Star Jones Reynolds is back with an exciting new show. It airs Monday at 3 p.m on Court TV.  I’m glad to see her back in front of the cameras.

I interviewed Mrs. Reynolds after her last book release (Shine: A Physical, Emotional and Spiritual Journey to Finding Love) and she was pleasant to speak with and she made me proud to say she’s a sister 🙂

Below is an excerpt from the interview:

Shelia Goss: Do you ever miss being in the courtroom?

Star Jones Reynolds: In some ways I do. The thing I used to love about my courtroom experience was working with the victims. The ability to impact on their lives and see justice for them is what really got me involved and interested in criminal law from the beginning.  That I miss. The adrenaline rush of being in front of a jury is the same you get from being on TV—just a bigger jury.

Shelia: When did you decide to make the transition from attorney to talk show host?

Star: I don’t think I really actually decided to make a transition. I think it was made for me. People liked how I approached the law.  It was an easy transition. I was never required to be a day to day reporter. On Court TV, I just talked about the things that I knew and loved—the law.

Shelia: Although you’re already in the public eye was it hard opening yourself up to write a book (Shine: A Physical, Emotional and Spiritual Journey to Finding Love)?

Star: One of the dedications in Shine speaks to making yourself vulnerable. I really attribute that to my husband. He convinced me that being vulnerable in print was not a sign of weakness, instead it was a sign of strength and you grow with every new experience. I think in some ways it was cathartic for me because it really meant that I had grown.

I think it has helped other people. So many women out there who think their own struggles (physical, emotional, spiritual, financial, or professional) are isolated and the sense you’re by yourself can be depressing; especially when you think their is nobody there that understands. When in reality that’s not true. You have sisters across the country and the world that face similar struggles everyday.

On paper, to look at me three years ago, everybody would have said, “she has it going on”, but what they didn’t know is that I was struggling internally physically, emotionally and spiritually and I didn’t know how to get myself out of it. I had to seek help in every area. There’s no shame in seeking help. The shame is in hiding it. The moment I started seeking help on this journey of self improvement, my life started opening up.

Shelia: What motivated you to write Shine?

Star: My story is a back drop for other women to find their story. It is not a memoir, because I say 90 percent of the book is of how I learned from my mistakes. I’m on this journey to shine and if you want to come with me—let’s do it together.

When you read Shine, you immediately take time to self assess. You immediately look at yourself and say, “Hmm what part of this book is speaking to me?” If you know you’re having real credit issues and you’re unable to get out of it, then that part speaks to you. If you know that you’re been that strong independent woman and you’ve always said, “I don’t need a man;” “I don’t want a man, what are you talking about,” but in reality the little girl in you goes home and you’re alone and you realize success is nothing without someone you love to share it with, that part of the book is going to speak to you. If you’ve lost your way spiritually and you realize that you can seek comfort with a relationship with God, that part of the book is going to speak to you. And that was my goal. I wanted every woman to find a part of the book that spoke directly to them.

Watch the show; get the book.
