Buppies – FINALE – Pretty Wings

Published by TV Talker on Wednesday, January 27, 2010 at 11:00 am.

Buppies_110_main1Did ya’ll see this coming?

Drama for your mama!!!

It’s the closing curtain for BET.com’s first original web series, “Buppies,” and this last episode did not disappoint! We had drama up until the very last second.

Derek FINALLY said it!

He said a mouth full last week with his “I wasn’t ready” speech, but this week was the icing on the cake.

“I was a FOOL.”

I could have told ya’ll and Derek that nine episodes ago…LOL…but I’m glad this big head was man enough to look Quinci in her eyes and let her know.

And on the other foot, Quinci was woman enough to admit that she is “not over” him.

Despite the tension and history between the two, the moment is quickly broken with a SLAP and Quinci’s harsh words….

“If you love me, please let me go.”

That’s right Quinci! TELL HIM!

And where is Derek when Quinci has a major meltdown in her car in front of his house???

Let me guess…

…He’s not ready…AGAIN!

OK. So Quinci and Derek are not the perfect couple….does that leave Eliot and Priscilla to hold the title? What’s in store for them after their big announcement? Will they ride off into the sunset or is there more drama, intrigue and ever-changing friendships around the corner?

Quinci sums up “Buppies” in an instant and it’s so on point, I am printing it for all to read…

“Sometimes it happens in an instant.
We arrive in that place somewhere between wisdom and just plain growing up.
The truth is, we spend our youth rushing toward adulthood, scrambling for things to hold onto, things we can finally call our own.
Then we realize that being an adult isn’t just about holding on, it’s about living with the fact that some things will never be ours again….”

Until next time “Buppies” fans, visit the Buppies site for photos, video and more!
Watch the finale now!

Buppies – Come Close

Published by TV Talker on Wednesday, January 20, 2010 at 4:01 pm.

We find Eliot straight up speechless!!!!!!

But he quickly rises to the occasion with support, like a true gentleman.

Priscilla reminds him that he too had something to say.

OH YEAH. THAT!!!!!!

Will Eliot come clean?

In an interesting turn of events, Quinci finds herself sharing laughs with her ex, Derek, and she asks the question that we have all been waiting for since Episode 1.

“WHY DID YOU LEAVE?”

A tough question to ask, but somebody’s got to do it!

He admits to pressure from work to win the championship and not knowing how to be there for Quinci when her dad died. He wasn’t “ready.”

In short, he’s a boy not a man. But I give him some man points for finally stepping up to the plate and admitting his shortcomings.

Buppies – The One You’re With

Published by TV Talker on Wednesday, January 13, 2010 at 1:26 pm.

Quinci finally flees the house, and guess who she sees.

Your guess is correct!

Derek.

What does HE want?!!??

Well, for starters, he is looking like a professional tree boxer hanging outside the party.

Two, he confesses that Bitsy isn’t all that (but we knew that already), and explains why he brought her to the party in the first place.

Classic Quote from Quinci …
“She (Bitsy) went from shoe jack to lo jack in one day.”

My girl Quinci is clever with hers!!!!!

Moving right along…Nikki confronts Shaka about how he really feels. I don’t think Nikki is as “nice” as we think. She might be blonde, but I don’t think she is dumb. Shaka doesn’t admit to Nikki that he is wrong for how he has treated her, but he does come clean about how he really feels about his fancy corporate lawyer gig.

Where are Eliot and Priscilla? That crazy couple!!!!

Buppies – 99 Problems

Published by TV Talker on Tuesday, January 5, 2010 at 6:30 pm.

Buppies_107_Image_1_BLOGIn this episode, Shaka finds himself caught between a rock and a hard place named KOURTNEY.

Kourtney can’t wait to grill Shaka about his new friend, Nikki.

I mean really Kourtney, is it really any of your business or are you just serving up sista girl attitude in an attempt to check Shaka about who he hangs with?!!?!

What we learn is that Nikki is the daughter of the partner at the law firm where Shaka works and he refers to their friendship as “strategy.”  I bet Nikki don’t know that! LOL!

And last but not least, Kourtney can’t wait to introduce Quinci to Shaka’s girrrrrrrlfriend.

Classic quotes from Kourtney:
“You’ve been hiding a girlfriend for five months.  What are you, Janet Jackson?”
“It’s Rush Limbaugh in a sundress.”  (Wrong with a capital W, but funny!)

Based on the scandal from last week’s episode, I know everybody has been waiting for “the talk” between Priscilla and Eliot.  Well, this week, we got it!

A very nervous Eliot tries his best to come clean with Priscilla but Miss Prissy won’t let him get a word in edgewise and drops her bomb first!

What is Eliot’s reaction? What will he do?  Will he ever come clean about his past?

Buppies – Fear v. Responsibility

Published by TV Talker on Monday, January 4, 2010 at 3:36 pm.

We find out that Prissy Priscilla isn’t so perfect after she drops an explosive secret.

Didn’t you ever hear the expression, “everything that glitters ain’t gold”?  Well, Priscilla is definitely not glittering right now and her situation is anything but golden.

Looks like her “fear versus responsibility” method has finally caught up with her.

 Meanwhile, Shaka’s surprise guest makes herself at home and Kourtney is more than happy to sit and chat.

 Buppies_106_BLOG_PHOTOThere’s a lot for the perfect couple to discuss.  Who will say what first?

Buppies – Truth Will Set You Free

Published by TV Talker on Wednesday, December 23, 2009 at 11:08 am.

Buppies_105_BLOG

As much as we loved episode four, “The Fire This Time,” the story continues….

 Quinci surfaces with her shoes!  It was a wet victory, but a victory never the less.

 Looks like somebody needs swimming lessons.

Is it just me or have you noticed that the number of guests keeps growing at this birthday party?  Another uninvited person rings the doorbell and this time, it’s Kourtney with the shocked face.  Please don’t get brand new now, Shaka; it won’t help any!!!!

Last but not least, the NFL hottie keeps it real about how he really feels, but Eliot simply can’t handle the “truth.”

You know you want to comment, so sound off here!  Don’t forget to log on Tuesday at 3 p.m. for an all-new episode of BET.com’s original online web series, “Buppies.”

Buppies – The Fire This Time

Published by TV Talker on Wednesday, December 16, 2009 at 5:33 pm.

Well, well, “Buppies” fans…was this episode enough DRAMA for you?

Where else have you seen such a great storyline?…. Hmmmmmm….

Still thinking…..

The answer is “Buppies,” and episode four, “The Fire This Time,” bought it!!!!!!

This time, Quinci inquires about a familiar pair of shoes on Bitsy’s feet, and Truth confronts Eliot, head on … no pun intended.

First, let me talk about the ladies. Didn’t I tell ya’ll that Bitsy was short for ‘small-brained’ chick. Well, she really showed how “smart” she was this week. Quinci held it down when she saw her shoes on the new chick’s feet.

I got one word for everybody to NOT use in a sentence when telling where you get your fashion on….

JCPENNEY.

Did Bitsy really think Quinci would fall for that line? With designers stepping up to the plate and offering hot looks at stores like PAYLESS, I might have believed her. But I have not heard any buzz about JCPENNEY lately … have you?

Quote of the Episode: “What self-respecting woman slides her feet into another woman’s old shoes?”

Enough said! Hilarious!

And I guess you remember what happens next.

Hint: SPLASH!

Now, on to the guys. There has been something brewing between Eliot and Truth since Truth showed up at the birthday bash, and if you had not already figured it out…. BAM! It all came out in this episode. After three years you would think they had moved on …. But can they? Will they?

You know you want to comment on this explosive episode! Sound off and comment now!

Buppies – Stilettos We Lost In The Fire

Published by TV Talker on Wednesday, December 9, 2009 at 9:17 am.

In last week’s episode, Quinci’s crew advised her on how to approach her ex; and this week, it actually happens.

 Quinci faces her worst fears and approaches her demons…. the ex-fiancé, Derek.

Her awkwardness is quickly dismissed when he offers a big Happy Birthday hug and even admits he was surprised to receive an invite.

Derek did man up with a half-a** apology.  Although quick, he did part his sorry lips to say, “I’m really sorry about what happened between us.” This is the phrase that most jilted girls yearn to hear, but never do.

But wait, what’s up with Quinci’s ex’s new wifey, Bitsy?  Is she a little crazy or is it just me?  Is that her name for real or the size of her brain? And wait, what’s up with her rocking Quinci’s shoes…that is definitely a fashion faux pas.

NFL hottie Truth slithers in like a snake to introduce himself to Eliot’s girl Priscilla, only to be rushed off by Eliot for a little one-on-one conversation. What do they have to talk about?

What does Truth really want from Eliot and what’s really up with those shoes?

Buppies – The Case Of The Ex

Published by TV Talker on Wednesday, December 2, 2009 at 9:20 am.

Buppies_102_BlogQuinci makes her move and prepares to face the man that left her broken.  Meanwhile, she tries to figure out how he even got invited to her birthday soiree.

Come on “Prissy” Priscilla, who messes up on the Evite list?!!!?

How many times have you heard: check your list, once, twice and even thrice! I know she learned that one in etiquette class.

Not one to mess up, perfect Priscilla is quick to pull her synthetic hair 101 routine on Kourtney.  Kourtney checks “Prissy” in her own quick-witted way and keeps it moving.  Hilarious!!!!

Why is it that everyone knows at least one dude like Shaka…a true fake player.  He yearns to be a hip-hop artist but it’s clear that his rap skills are zero.  What’s up with his friend Truth? In my opinion, he doesn’t look like NFL material, or does he?

As Quinci prepares to face Derek, what do they possibly have to discuss?

Buppies – Let There Be Drama

Published by TV Talker on Wednesday, November 25, 2009 at 8:37 am.

Buppies_101_Pic1_BLOGIt’s official! “Buppies” has landed at BET.com, and it’s jam-packed with friendship, betrayal, affluence and drama.

We officially meet Tatyana Ali’s starring character, “Quinci,” the socialite daughter of a Hollywood celebrity, who realizes that her friends are her only real family she has left.

Quinci has had some tough breaks, so a 26th birthday bash seems fitting. She joins her crew – Priscilla, Kourtney, Shaka and Eliot – to celebrate what is supposed to be a small and intimate affair; but instead it’s a circus!

When Quinci’s name is not on the list to get in, I find myself having flashbacks of “ATL Housewife” NeNe trying not to be tardy for the party only to find her name was not on the list either.

Described as the “second worst day” of her life, Quinci presses on and tries to enjoy her day until the person she thought she would never see again is standing right in front of her face.

She says she is OK, but is she really???? What would you do? Comment now!

Find out what happens next! Tune in Tuesday at 3 PM for an all-new episode of the BET.com original webseries, “Buppies.”
