For the record, the guacamole at Rosa Mexicano is fantastic. I mean, really, really good. And the fact that they make it in front of you, in a "rock", makes it that much better.
Watching Kim sing is like waiting for someone to get pulled off the stage at the Apollo. I could never keep my eyes open for it. It's like watching someone getting whacked in a horror film. You know it's coming, but you can't watch.
NeNe has officially lost her mind. it certainly comes off like she's a bit vindictive and it seems like she's the one doing the manipulating. The joke is becoming her.
I felt bad for Kim and NeNe in this episode. There's no way they can actually be like the characters on the screen, is there? The others are becoming increasingly clumped together.
Deshawn's just floating by -- when they start to show her, I get snacks now, and Lisa is just too smart to get sucked up into the drama.
Sheree, for me, is making a huge comeback on the likability meter. She's more than just a pretty face. Her relationship with Kim seems to be forced, mostly from Kim's side, and I'd say she's being pretty politically savvy (it is election day, for the record, and I voted for Obama).
I think I like Sheree now. There, I said it. I think it swung during the shot of Sheree's face when Kim spelled cat with a K. It was more than priceless. It was almost as if she thought she was getting Punk'd. As if, maybe the whole series was fake and it was just set up for that one moment.
From the local scene, three restaurants came into play this week. Rosa's, which I mentioned is a very good Mexican place with it's original outlet in New York City. They serve great green garbage made with stones... i.e. guacamole.
The brazilian steak house - never heard of it.
And there was a shot in front of Souper Jenny. They sell, wait for it, soup. It's a great idea, a great name, and I've had great soup there
