‘I’m really gonna miss everything’

Well, guys, it’s the season finale! And you know what? I’m kind of glad that it’s over. Between the ignorant antics and the over-the-top drama, I’m excited to get out of the house– especially after the crap that went down recently. How are two grown ass men gonna get into a physical altercation over who was more “about that life” than the other? Who gives a sh**?! And then to fight and not land any blows on each other, but hit everyone else in the vicinity? Talk about collateral damage! I got hit in the head. Kyle received a scratch above his eye, and, worse, Tiffany was hit in the face, which landed her in the hospital!

I’m not gonna lie, though. The argument with Kyle and Milan was funny as hell. I mean, I get where she’s coming from—she needed to use the phone to check up on her mother after a round of lipo, and Kyle was just having a casual conversation with one of his buddies. I think surgery is probably higher on the priority list than small talk. Still, Kyle’s antics this time around were pretty damn funny. Kay and I were cracking up in our room! And then when he still continued the conversation with himself after Milan hung up the phone—priceless! Kyle is definitely a top-notch a-hole, but he sure is funny!

Now, the final dinner was actually really amazing. The setup was gorgeous, the food was on point, and the service was impeccable. Chris joined us, and the house felt full again, instead of the awkward emptiness that permeated the place when he was evicted. I mean, as much as I complain about my roommates, they’re still my family. We’ve been through a lot of crap together. We’ve laughed a lot, argued a lot more, and we’ve formulated a bond over the time we’ve been together. The dinner allowed us to reflect on everything and I realized how close we were to the end. It made me kinda sad– the window was closing for this amazing opportunity and my regular life seemed so boring in comparison. Yeah, I’m happy to get away from the constant drama, but sad that I’m having to close this chapter in my life. Part of it was a helluva lot of fun and I’m really gonna miss everything.

‘Thank God This &@#! Is Ova’

June 24th, 2009

fb_ch6_ep17_chris2

It has been a long season, and it seems like everyone in the house is at each other’s throats and fireworks are about to fly at any time… and it comes true as Milan and Kyle have it out over the phone. I guess Milan thinks that we should obey her, but why would we do that? I mean, we are PLASTIC! So don’t look for help from me, Tiffany, or Paul.

I’m at my end with Brandon; he has been trying to be something he is not the whole time living in this house and I can’t stand this dude at this point. I really don’t understand how I can warn you not to mess with me and you would still try your luck. I mean, haven’t I embarrassed you once on TV? Why put yourself in that situation twice? Makes no sense, but I guess I’ll have to give you some “act right”… lol. I guess with the cops showing up and Tiffany going to the ER, I may have pushed it to the limit and my time has run out because I get kicked out the house… I mean, it’s only a few days early so I’m not really trippin’, especially because I end up coming back for the final dinner.

What can I say; the house isn’t the same without me… But at the same time thank god this ish is ova before I killed someone… and now me and Tiffany will finally get some alone time…

The Finale Has Finally Come

June 24th, 2009

fb_ch6_ep17_tiffany2

Yes, change has finally come! The first Black president of the United States of America has been elected and we got to witness this as a group. I can’t speak for everyone, but it was exciting for me. Besides all the good news, of course there had to be drama in the house. Milan and Kyle got into it because she really wanted to use the phone and felt as though Kyle was taking too long to get off and hung up on his phone call. Now, that argument was definitely a funny one, and by the way, I don’t think anyone should ever hang up on someone’s phone call. SMH.

The most drama of it all was the big fight between Chris and Brandon. It started over something dumb and on top of that, I got hit in the nose in the process! You know I was mad about that! On a better note, I think one of our better memories was definitely the final dinner. We really sat and talked about our experience and what we learned about ourselves and each other. And we did this with no arguments whatsoever.

This experience was one of the best in my life. I wouldn’t give it back for the world and if I could do it again I would. The people that I’ve met and the places that I’ve seen have been great and I’m so grateful for everything. Oh, but please believe if there is a reunion show, security may be needed! Lmao

‘It’s a damn shame’

June 17th, 2009

fb_ch_ep15_allison

Seriously, the fighting is getting annoying at this point. I mean, if there were really acceptable reasons for arguing, I’d understand. But come on! How is Milan going to call us all plastic when she has fake hair, wears tons of makeup, etc? Granted, I like Milan; there are many good traits about her that I think are amazing. But to be upset at us for being annoyed that she was a no-show was just stupid. Were we not supposed to be bothered that she not only put herself before us AGAIN, but Faye and her two children?

Then, finding out Brandon was the one that snitched annoyed the hell out of me. He and Kyle talked the most crap out of anyone, and he has the nerve to throw us all under the bus to make himself look better. At this point, I don’t trust him at all.

AND THEN we had this really unnecessary fight between him and Kay. Why? And to push the girl? Listen, I understand that a woman should not use her sex as an advantage and get up in a man’s face as she did. But to violently shove a woman against the glass in retaliation is just wrong. Brandon is a buff dude– he’s much stronger than Kay. His behavior was, in a word, despicable.

Not that Kay is to be excused, either. Yes, Brandon was egging her on, calling her all kinds of names, and she had to do what she had to do, but she took the wrong action and started the physical altercation.

At this point, I’m so glad we’re almost done. We’ve been given so many great opportunities to grow and learn and become better people. But in the end, none of it was retained and integrated into our character. In many ways, we’re still just as childish, snobbish, self-centered and ignorant as we were when we first arrived on the yacht. It’s a damn shame.

Alumni Area: ‘The semester is almost over.’

June 16th, 2009

birthday-love

Hey, BET.com. I know it’s been awhile, but I’ve been very busy with new projects! But for those of you who don’t know me, it’s RAY from season 3 Virginia State; the BEST season! I have to shout out New York, Aysia from “Baldwin Hills” and Poprah from “I Wanna Work for Diddy” for stopping thru my birthday party in West Hollywood last month!

Wow, can you believe the semester is almost over in South Beach? With the attitudes and friendship alliances changing from episode to episode, you would think they were trending topics like on Twitter! And someone needs to call the recycling center because it’s a recession and you can get money for recyclable goods – like PLASTIC! Apparently, Milan has a handful of plastic she feels she needs to dispose of!

We pick up this week with Milan, who was a no-show, and the cast appears to be unsympathetic toward her non-participation because she wanted to eat. On one hand, I see how they can be a little salty since it was supposed to be a group effort. On the other hand, I think it was fake as hell for people to talk about her behind her back, when she initially was assisting earlier in the day.

I found it funny how the main person who was boo-hooing for Jesus and trying to change was the main one in the middle of the behind-the-back talking …. who else but Kyle? Mind you, even after their blow-up, she had his back and was defending him throughout his various confrontations in the house. But Brandon, I have to point the finger at you too, boo! You had your fair share of input along with everyone else so for you to tell her everything that was said, it made you look like a snitch. Bad decision! Don’t yall think Milan had a right to be mad?

In all honesty BET.com, I’m not at all pleased with the level of respect the females are shown on this season! This would not have flown on any other season – especially not with the likes of Deirdra, Anya, Krystal, Vanessa, Jenna and Ashley! I still feel some type of way about how Kyle blew up on Milan on the boat, belittled Allison repeatedly, got in Kay’s face over some ribs and now Brandon gets into a semi-altercation with Kay in the van! Is this the image of Black men that we want our younger viewers to see? That it’s okay to yell at women, belittle them and call them out of their names? Regardless of any prior dealings or encounters, no female should be called out of her name and put on blast like that! Brandon seriously lost some cool points with me on that.

Tune in next week as the drama reaches an all-time high for the finale – Brandon vs. Chris! Which team are you on?

In the meantime, you guys can check out my daily blog – http://raysbleujuice.blogspot.com for today’s leading urban trending topics … with a twist!

‘A Diva Moment’

June 10th, 2009

fb_ch_ep15_chriscries

So I drop a few tears… yeah, and??? I mean, I’m not ashamed at all. It hurt my heart to see what I saw at Faye’s house. People often see me now and wonder why I walk with a chip on my shoulder, but it’s because I’ve lived through my version of Hell. I have been homeless before, and I also come from a broken home where my mother worked hours on end to provide for me and my brother. So for me, seeing Faye’s situation, a woman that was trying to do right, hit close to home. I just don’t think that anyone should have to live like that, especially not kids…

The best thing about this situation is the fact that my whole cast felt the same way. When we were given the choice between a cast trip or helping this woman and her kids, there wasn’t any discussion. It was a unanimous decision. WE ARE GOING TO HELP FAYE!!!

We bust our butts putting this house together, from bargaining for furniture, to shopping for groceries, to getting decorations for the house. The only thing was that when it came time to bring everything to the house and set it up… “Has anyone seen Milan???” Once again Milan has made a situation — that is supposed to be about helping others — into a diva moment. And it’s obvious that the house is getting tired of it…

So Emotional

June 3rd, 2009

tiffany

This week, emotions come to a high when Kyle feels like he’s had enough and is ready to go back home. I definitely felt where he was coming from; we were all homesick and just emotionally drained. It was different for him though because unlike the rest of us he had no one, no friends or family. So he packed his bags and didn’t really want to hear what any of us had to say. In the end, the person who you would least expect to get Kyle to stay, Brandon, got the job done and Kyle didn’t leave the house. I didn’t know what that was about but Brandon got his props for that!

Kay and Paul’s relationship started turning into something more than just friends, or so we all thought (SMH). But Paul started making it clear he didn’t want Kay. We didn’t really believe him though, because of all the flirting and time they spent together. Poor Kay really got her feelings hurt. Then out of nowhere this beef between her and Brandon starts, and I could have sworn they were “really good friends.” I wonder what all that’s about, hmmmmmm…..

‘Life in the House Is Crazy’

June 3rd, 2009

ch6_chris

Life in the house is crazy as always. Tiffany and I are still feeling each other out. I mean, there is obvious chemistry there, but we’re not as open as Kay and Paul are … or should I say were??? I think Paul was, at one point, feeling Kay and it’s obvious that Kay was also feeling Paul, but I think that where they envisioned this relationship going was definitely different. Lucky for Paul he already got a taste of birthday cake (or did he), because I think he finished any chances with Kay when she overheard him saying that he’s really not feeling her like that… Well, I know this much: Allison will sleep better now, or should I say she might not be sleeping now???? And I really wanted Paul and Kay to work out. It was cool with me and Tiffany not being the center of all the attention in the house…

Kyle, where are you going??? What happened???? What is going on??? I mean, even if you leave, where you going, back to Tally? On a Greyhound? Boy, you better relax with your original iPod, that ride is tooo long and you know your iPod only lasts for 20 minutes at a time… and look at this, out of all people Brandon is the one that is there to help you??? I guess people do change, or is this just Brandon jumping sides of the fence again??? Only time will tell…

‘That Girl Doesn’t Know What She’s Missing…’

May 27th, 2009

fb_ch_ep13_allisonkay

I was so glad to have a moment of peace in the house. Dr. Nixon’s visit helped a lot with our dynamics, and allowed us to slowly dissolve the boundaries of formed alliances. I became much more comfortable around my housemates, and my days became a lot less drama-filled and allowed me to focus on being me, rather than defending myself. This, of course, allowed me to explore my friendship with Kay.

Now, I can’t say I had strong feelings for her. Certainly not the same feelings I shared with Pioneer. However, who can blame me for not being interested? She’s sexy as hell, intelligent, and wacky– my kind of girl. She teased me constantly, whether purposefully or not, making my sexual desert I was thrust into even hotter. And then she admitted that she would sleep with me out of everyone else in the house, and that she’d previously had a lesbian relationship! Score! I knew it would make our nights have a bit more sexual tension, which is always fun.

Well, it would have, anyway, if Paul weren’t in the picture. I can’t really blame her for picking him over me. Granted, he snitched on her, but that’s beside the point. Paul ain’t my type, but I can understand the appeal. He’s a good looking dude! And I’m, well, yeah. You know. Awkward, strange, etc, etc.

Speaking of awkward, do you know how not cool it is to wake up in the middle of the night to the moans of a girl that you want, and you’re not the one making her do the moaning? (I woulda done a better job than Paul, but eh.) I didn’t know if I should just go back to sleep, if I should leave, or if I should jump in (kidding! … sort of). It sucked. I was a bit hurt, but she’d made her choice. What could I have done?

Though it’s not an experience I would wish on anyone, I can’t help but chuckle when I think about it. Anyway, that girl doesn’t know what she’s missing, because no man– no man– can please a woman quite like another woman. Hah!

Finally Some Help

May 21st, 2009

bbi_ch612a_s1

So we finally get some help! A family therapist, Dr. Nixon. Much needed. Huh? It was definately a relief to have her come in and make us talk out our issues like adults. Even though we all said we would try to work on our challenges (flaws) that were pointed out during the session, it didn’t happen.

The next day we had to do community service, and we had a pretty good start (disregarding Milan’s statement that women don’t dig), until it started raining. Milan didn’t want to get her hair wet, and the group didn’t really agree with that. I understand where Milan was coming from because I would have been upset had my hair been straight. But I guess everyone at that point in time expected her to put her “Diva” ways to the side and suck it up because of the talk we had the previous night. In the end, we got the job done and felt good about it.

Team Kyle and Team Allison came together and EVERYONE was accepted into the group! I’m wondering what’s goin’ to happen next with Kay and Paul, or should I say Kay and Allison. I’ll take either one LOL.
