Give the viewers something they do NOT wanna see. And with just 2 episodes, that’s what Marrying The Game has done.
We thought this show was about Jayceon and Tiffney’s relationship. It’s not. Then we thought it was a ghetto remix of “Bridezillas.” Wrong again. This show is about planning a wedding. Ya heard? Planning a damn wedding!
And what’s wrong with that? Nothing. But when you add Jayceon “The Game” Taylor to the mix, that’s where things go left. Because NOBODY wants to watch Jayceon plan a damn wedding, not even Jayceon himself. SMDH.

About us: Mainstream media tends to ignore certain shows. Sure, they spill tea about the cast when they get married, divorced, or have a run in with the law. But they never provide solid, journalistic insight about the television series or the individual episodes. Does that help program your DVR? Nope.
So a group of friends with interests, education, and backgrounds in theater, advertising, journalism, interior design and fashion started blogging about those shows. ((and we tumble Once Upon a Time just for fun)). Hope you enjoy.

Recap / Review: The new girl, Zuly, immediately starts checking for Rima and Falen. Of course, that turned into a make-out sesh in the Jucuzzi, which turned into a full-on, dry-hump situation in the bed. First with Rima, and then with Falen. The next morning, Falen blamed the booze. No, Cupcake. Alcohol doesn’t make you immoral. It makes you honest. N-E-wayz.
Julie and Rima had a pretend wedding. They never explained WHY, but then again, it’s the Bad Girls Club. Senseless behavior is a pre-req to get into the house. Also, WHY was Ashley jealous of that wedding? Now that, I do know. Because she’s co-dependent on Rima.
And speaking of Rima, she got into a fight out in public with Mehgan. The Policia arrived, and while Mehgan was in custody, the house decided to ignore her completely. That’s when Mehgan packed her bags, and took on Rima and Falen, both at the same time.
What can I say? Mehgan beat them gurls like a prison guard surpressing a cafeteria riot. Best. Fight. To date. And I seriously enjoyed watching Falen get a beat down. When it was over, Mehgan volunteered to kick rocks. Bye, Mehgan! Take care of that $700 weave.

Recap / Review: The lucky 13 moved into the Top Model Sorority House, where Tyra spilled the tea about the new rules. She said the call-out is now based on three new scores.
The Viewers + The Judges + The Challenge = Final Score
This qualitative and quantitative system will determine who stays, and goes. Plus, the winner of each challenge gets $10K added to their “scholarship account” that she can redeem IF she wins the whole competition. What’s more, the Best Photo winner gets to sleep in the “Tyra Suite.”
Now let’s talk about the challenge. The girls had to “work the runway, and show personality. The winner was Yvonne, and the scores were posted in the house for all to see. Then, we have the photoshoot were the girls were posed as taxidermy. After that, “only 12 will continue on in the hope of becoming America’s Next Top Model.”
Finally, to save time, we combined the call-out with the scores.
Remember, The Viewers + The Judges + The Challenge = Final Score
Leila, 5.4 + 30 + 5 = 40.4
Nastasia, 4.6 + 23 + 9 = 36.6
Brittany, 5.3 + 22 + 9 = 36.3
Laura, 6 + 25 + 5 = 36.0
Kristin, 6.7 + 24 + 4 = 34.7
Kiara, 4.3 + 22 + 8 = 34.3
Yvonne, 5.8 + 18 + 10 = 33.8
Allyssa, 5.1 + 20 + 7 = 32.1
Victoria, 5.2 + 19 + 7 = 31.2
Darian, 4.9 + 16 + 8 = 28.9
Maria, 5.1 + 17 + 6 = 28.1
Destiny, 4.9 + 17 + 5 = 26.9
Jessie, 5.37 + 13 + 4 = 22.4 - Eliminated
I’m still not sure how I feel about the new judging system. I’ll have to give this a few more weeks before I can form an opinion. But the ”second chance” is a great plot twist. We’ll find out next week what the 12 remaining models think of the “Comeback Series.”

Recap / Review: Tamera’s pregnant, and tried to keep the news quiet for the first 12 weeks. But can she keep it from Tia? Nope. Tamera had morning sickness in Tia’s car and threw up on the side of the road.
Tia tries to balance her Book Tour with her first Mother’s Day. Despite her demanding schedule, Tia finds the time to gets new glasses, pick out new outfits for public appearances, and celebrate Mother’s Day with family photos and a massage.
It was a good episode, but we still need the producers to stop editing the “Coming Up” segments in misleading ways.
Time slot: Wednesday, 9PM, EST
Recap / Review: The first segment was basically “filler.” Mayte lands a movie role. Sheree takes her husband motorcycle shopping, but they don’t make a purchase. Andrea touches up her tattoo so it represents her son, and not her ex husband.
And while Andrea was still high on the fumes of “closure,” she persuaded Mayte to pack up her wedding China that boldly features the Prince Symbol. Mayte got emotional, which tells me that Mayte should put those dishes in the box, and move on with her life.
Jessica received another request from ex husband, Jose, to move back into the house. No comment. This whole scene looked staged.
The main plot point was Andrea planned a dance showcase to promote her Master Dance Class and help raise awareness about her charity foundation. She recruits all the ladies to add a few more watts to the power of celebrity.
Then one hour before the show, Andrea suffers an injury. But she hops on crutches, and ladies of Hollywood Exes gave a well-choreographed performance. They were great! And overall, so was Season One. Let’s hope they come back for Season Two. Whatever happens, we’ll be watching.
LHHATL: ”Girl, I got a lot of mugshots. I got a hundred mugshots.” [Audience Laughs] You know what? When Joseline is not on the defensive and openly expresses her opinions, she quickly wins people over with her brutal honesty and ghetto humor.
LHHATL: Jose, why did you get azz-naked in front of the executive producer, and pee on a stick? Then ya’ll turned around and filmed it? From every possible angle, ya’ll both look crazy.
LHHATL: Did they call and color coordinate these outfits? And why did the inside lining of Joseline’s dress match this fuchsia color too?
LHHATL: At what Strip Club was this sliding down the pole? Like a Pawn Shop, Check Cashing type of place? Even there, it had to be the Monday morning shift.
BGC: I never did like this chick. And with each passing episode, I like her even less. Somebody torture this fake, scheming bitch until she begs for her passport.
BGC: Damn, Rima. To quote Destiny’s Child…
You nasty, Girl. You nasty. You trashy.
You classless, Girl. You sleazy. You freaky.
N-A-S-T-Y, ya’ nasty. F-R-E-A-K, ya’ freaky.
Girl, where’s your P-R-I-D-E? Put some clothes on.
BGC: According to Falen, “Mehgan, you’re using me to get into clubs. Get VIP. Whoopty-whoo. But for you to come at me? You’re cut off! You think you’re a schemer? You ain’t met nothing yet!”
Falen, please. Since when are you “V-I-P”? If anything, you RA-GOH-DEE. And why 7 episodes later, you still haven’t thrown some hands? Weak, bitch.
LHHATL: Say what you want, but Mona Scott-Young was an excellent host. She was unbiased, shut down several arguments, and she wasn’t afraid to ask the tough questions. I’m just glad that is wasn’t John Salley. He needs to go.
