Hi guys! Thank you all again for watching. Sorry to keep you waiting. . .
Between raving at #TomorrowWorld and moving into a new place, things have gotten a little hectic, and I am finally able to sit down and give you all my full attention. I think that tonight's episode showcased a completely different side of everyone. Didn't it?
First there was Emily. I know that Emily has always been a firecracker, but this week, we saw her explode. By day, she is a respectful businesswoman trying to get her store back together, but at night, she is not to be messed with. If you cross her, she will go off AND have you kicked out. And this time, I was nowhere in sight. Maybe I shouldn't take it so personally?
Tribble: Poor Tribble, this week we really got to see a whole different side of his personality. He really put himself out there by trying to talk to someone who he normally wouldn't have talked to just to be CRUSHED in front of his friends, and by the all mighty Queen Africa. Tribble seems like he is such a good guy who isn't used to rejection, and this week, I really felt bad for him. I used to think that he was a ladies man with so much self-confidence. I really hope that this doesn't ruin his black girl experience, especially because I am #TeamTribble.
#Team Alex all the way !! I did not get a good impression of you from the previews but after watching the episodes I realize that although you are spoiled (blessed) you are a really cool individual and Africa certainly owed you an apology on behalf of the person who almost ruined your celabratory dinner. So for her to turn it all around and to expect you to "bow down to her highness" because of her friend once again trash talking and starting s*#*^ with you at her birthday is not only absurd but hypocrital. Not to mention her reaction to you when you did try to apologize to her was obviously an attempt at belittling you and making you look insignificant in front of Vawn; jealousy party of one. So do you baby, I like you am a fun loving person who has so called friends and people who look down upon me because of my tendancy to be so open with everyone regardless of their opinion. But just like you, I give them one chance and if they continue to disrespect me than it's full on war!!
Africa went from classy to trashy faster than Vawn could heat up their dinner.. Lmao.. I didn't like you at first, but I'm beginning to like you now... I love your personality.. Even if your cast to be the villain.. #TeamAlex
I'm #TeamAlex & I'm here for the drama. Alex went out of her way & Africa & Emily STILL was trying it. I'm looking forward to you putting your foot down & teaching them to not take your kindness for weakness by whooping her you know what. Was into this blog entry girl! Keep it up
I didn't that I would like Alex but I find her young, animated and fun. If she wants to be a trophy wife, so what...at least she honest. She shouldn't have to explain and define herself to Emily...it is what it is. Besides she has her own business and she is college educated so it's not like she doesn't have other options if so chooses. Emily needs to get some business and stay out of others.
Africa is a lady, and cream always rises to the top. But wow spending $729.00 on some buster jeans just to look cool? Ha Ha your a lame, and it reads thru the TV - don't try soo hard you buster. and return those pants !
I'm not going to talk about your behavior since ( without reading ) i'm guessing you are getting your ass handed to you by the other commenters. I just want to say that I was really pleasantly surprised to find out about your rave business. Very Unique and industrious! Cool stuff lady! I hope we get to learn more about that and less about the drama as the show goes on...tuning in!
Alex, I am not a fan. You are soooo fake. You are not cute (at all). I don't mean to be harsh, but you have a lot of growing to do. A real woman would have apologized to Africa. She out-classed you big time!!!! You can learn a lot from her. Please grow up and stop acting a like a little self-absorbed brat. It's not all about you.
Alex you come across as very sensible and likeable on this blog, but boy do you come across as something else on screen. You really seem almost like a sociopath on the show. Let us see a warmer side to you and show some vulnerability so you are more relatable as a human being.
I loved this blog! It gives me a better insight into Alex's head. I was really quick to take Africa's side, but I also got that Alex just wanted to give her time. I agree that, if they had been true friends, Africa wouldn't have gotten so upset at her for something so small.
I didn't quite understand why Emily was getting so upset with her at her own dinner. Just because Alex wants kids and to take good care of her husband, doesn't make her any less of a person or less intelligent for that matter. She is a college-educated woman who clearly values a lot more than just money and material (even though she likes those things and there's nothing wrong with that).
I also looked through Alex's Twitter photos and feel like I saw more of who she is and it is definitely not a one-dimensional woman who only lives to live off her Dad. She's into good music, helping others, educating herself, having a good time, and building friendships. I'm a huge Alex fan now. Like, she's awesome.
I'm sorry, but I think you are just a spoil hater! You never really liked Africa...let's be clear! and you don't want Vawn.
He is just a sideways attempt for you to poke at Africa. I knew girls like you myself. They saw me in places and circles that they themselves wished to be inside. So they pretend to be a friend only to come inside my world and attempt to devour my friendships with others. But it never worked for any of them. Because I always kept it real and I am geniune and sincere. Those are the same qualities I see in Afrika. Those are the same qualities that you lack. You want to be the "IT GIRL". you really need to quit girl! You say your goal is to be a trophy wife? You first have to behave like a grown woman. Keep watching Africa you might learn something about that. But right now??...you behave like a bully on a playground. And you say you all that! Looks and sounds like insecurity to me.......I'm just saying.
While I agree with your assessment on most of the situations and other people on the show, the fact of the matter is you waited too long to apologize to Africa, and your only REAL sincere attempt to apologize was after Vawn charmed you into it, but other than that you weren't really trying to apologize.
Furthermore, you need to get real about your looks or lack thereof, and also you're too young, immature, lack real world experience and culture, etc. to even remotely be qualified as a "trophy wife."
Men with REAL wealth (not hood rich or ghetto rich) and who are worth their salt, have culture, life experience, education, etc. are going to look for women who have ambition and other things going for them so I suggest you really develop yourself and get some substance because your looks or lack thereof are not going to help you.
Finally, last time I checked you're still a black woman who's not very cute, and this is still a very racially divided and class divided world, the economy is still bad and with the exception of the 1% who are doing okay, most men (wealthy or not) are NOT going to be interested in supporting a woman or someone who doesn't pull their fair share financially. You grew up in a middle class family, and somehow you think you're rich or wealthy because your dad in his own misguided way tried to spoil you and bought you furs, but honestly you need to develop some ambition and substance and class and build some REAL wealth and quit trying to play a spoiled brat. You haven't really earned the right nor can you really afford to especially in this struggling economy.
Alex, you do not have to be hateful. I know your mom raised you better than that. If you would stop your excessive drinking and focus on your future, it could be a bright future. Stop the hate, it is not a good look on you.
I do agree that I was very disappointed in Africa swallowing Yawn's tired lines, but in future episodes it looks like you are going after him yourself. Why? You just acknowledged that he was a playa. Drop the mean girl act and focus on building your career, then you can marry you a trophy husband.
@LChesson38 This is when you know you dealing with little girls. That you EXPECT an apology from Africa, because her guest (Emily) had an opinion about being a trophy wife. Only little girls would attend a party and be followers of a host all night long. I can't believe none of those young ladies sitting at that table desires to achieve anything else but a husband and baby in life. If so, that's when they should have shared their thoughts like Emily. Instead they sat around giggling like the were in the school cafeteria.
Grown women get together for an occasion, and will be themselves, have opinions and be respected. Maybe even a debate, but not these little women.
Which is why the grown women (Africa & Emily) excused herself and made the decision to leave. Because I guarantee grown women, don't & won't even been having that conversation about her future husband and what our daddy do for us.
acting? seriously? she's a is a spoiled brat who has never been told that she's not that special and she's really not that cute. I feel bad for her father. She obviously has no relationship with her dad and views him as nothing more than a blank check. so sad that all she aspires to be is "trophy wife." She is no prize and a real man would see right thru that.
agreed! she is NOT even remotely attractive.
