Emmys 2016 Recap: Red Carpet and Winners


Emmys 2016 Recap: Red Carpet and Winners

Could you feel the good vibrations on the red carpet last night?

Hopefully, you got a chance to watch the Emmy Awards. In this blog, we will experience it again. In case you missed it, you'll also appreciate my recap.

To begin with, the interviews set the tone for the night. There was a little something for everybody. Are you much into fashion and style? Did you enjoy seeing the actresses and actors strutting their stuffs?

We saw John Travolta and Amy Schumerarrive on the scene. Naturally, Amy said something inappropriate. And Travolta was cool like he's been- for the past 40 years.

The Emmys literally started up their engines as host Jimmy Kimmel hitchhiked with TV and showbiz's biggest stars. To start it off, he got a little Carpool Karaoke for us from James Corden. Of course, Jimmy was kicked out of the car because of his bad singing. Other celebrities including Julia Louis-Dreyfus kicked him to the curb.

Entertainment award shows are the highlight of an entertaining season. After all that hard work, talent is rightly rewarded by the Television Academy. There were tons of winners Sunday- too many to name everyone.

Jeffrey Tambor was the talk of the Tinseltown because of his performance in Transparent. It seems Transparent owned the night. In fact, Jimmy Kimmel handed Tambor an Emmy when the show first started.

Tori Kelly sang a beautiful Hallelujah honoring the memories of those we lost this year ending with Prince. Louie Anderson won the first award. Were fans pleased to see Mr. Robot take home an Emmy or what? Plus, Game of Thrones and Veep were recognized with multiple wins.

Moreover, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story won big. Courtney B. Vance and Sterling K. Brown took home Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor, respectively. You also saw Key & Peele receive their respects they paid dearly for on the comedic side. It's all about sacrifice.

To be honest, the Emmys were dull but enjoyable with coffee. I don't fault the nominees because the TV shows themselves are incredible. I suggest more music and/or better clips next time. Otherwise, Everything was all good.

Why Keke Palmer Is a Premium Entertainer


Who chooses Keke Palmer? The entertainer does everything right. Plus, she looks good doing it!

Without question, Keke Palmer has her hands full as an actress, presenter, TV personality, and singer. It seems she has too much talent for her own good. I'm a fan because I recognize premium entertainment when I watch it. And Keke Palmer is a premium entertainer. 

What is a premium entertainer? Someone who delivers the best goods and services at the best cost. Keke is never overpaid, although she always works overtime. In other words, Palmer knocks it out the park and puts the ball in the hole. 

How does she control herself? How do YOU control yourself in her presence? The celebrity presents carefully crafted images. What you see is what you get. Moreover, Keke's unbelievable and unforgettable.

Remember the name Keke Palmer for years to come. She could play First Lady Michelle Obama in a movie. This actress is highly capable of winning Golden Globes and Grammys. Maybe, even an Oscar.

She has incredible range not only as an actor but as a singer too. I spent some time watching her music videos today. Her sound is rock solid. She could shake the ground with that voice. I almost lost track of time looking at that sexy girl.

Right now, Keke Palmer is a major brand name. Who doesn't want a commercial starring the actress? You've seen her face and body on countless magazine covers for a host of reasons.

Crown the Scream Queens star victorious. Also, don't forget to check out her new movie called Pimp. Keke plays a female pimp situated in the Bronx named Wednesday.

Finally, I choose Keke Palmer as one of my favorites because she's a professional. The True Jackson, VP star is true to her craft. She can be my Vice President, that's for sure. She does what it takes, and she has what it takes.

Who Are Your Favorite Real Housewives?


Do you want to blowup overnight? Is it your time to shine and be famous? Would you like to have your own reality TV show? 

Can you picture the camera crew literally waiting all day for you to BLOW UP? You see blowing up can take on multiple meanings. Anyway, let's put more meaning behind our words; and at the same time don't take someone's bullshit too literal. 

You don't have to watch a reality show to know we don't live in a drama free world. But, there's hope thanks to Hollywood. Instead of concentrating on all the violence, you can choose to focus on Exhibit A: Kim Kardashian or Exhibit B. Kylie Jenner

In the words of the Beatles, give peace a DAMN chance! You see that I put a twist on it. The fact is reality TV allows an escape from the real world.

Are you a single mother? It's hard paying rent sometimes. It's a struggle but be "thankful for what you got and keep on pushing." Curtis Mayfield told us that.

Are you a housewife? You can just relax and be yourself. Feed the kids. Get them off to school. 

Then, go shopping. Get a manicure and pedicure. Cook dinner. Clean house. 

Now, it's time to party. So, Sh-shake your money maker. The only caveat is it is all on tape for everyone to see. But you get a fat check at the end of the day. 

Here's an idea. Why not make a private reality show right now? Call it Me-Time.

Do you watch the Real Housewives? Who are your favorite stars? What franchises do you like better? My two favorites are Bethenny Frankel and NeNe Leakes. I like New Jersey (RHONJ) and Atlanta (RHOA) and Beverly Hills (RHOBH) more than the rest.

If you asked me, I had enough of Wendy Williams. Bring back the Bethenny talk show. I think they didn't want to pay full value for Bethenny and settled for Wendy. Chime in your comments.

Ranking the Real


Do you watch daytime TV? Maybe you're watching the Real right now. The Real is one of my favorite talk shows. There’s no other show quite like it.

I love the Real cast because they don’t hold anything back. Every last one of them makes a contribution. But, let’s be real...who does the best job?

  1. Loni Love

I’m partial toward comedians, so Loni Love gets the edge. Plus, she contributes more value to the show because of her humor. Who could forget her performance in Mall Cop 2, where she brings down the house?

Loni Love reminds me of a younger Whoopi. Does anyone else see the familiarity. They both have a similar style and stage presence. Loni controls the set like an air traffic controller.
  1. Tamera Mowry

The Sister Sister starlet has transformed into a reality TV supernova. Without question, Tamera adds class and a mixture of spice. We value her opinions because she’s honest about her life.

The wife and mother is relatable to her audience. Tamera opens up and tells the truth about herself. What is more, she’s a strong believer in God.

  1. Tamar Braxton  

As the youngest sibling, I can identify with Tamar. She is smart, talented, generous, and kind. Braxton would rank higher but she’s absent sometimes. On the other hand, absence makes the heart grow fonder.  

  1. Adrienne Bailon

Adrienne always comes up with sensational stories. She shows appreciation and gives gratitude. Perhaps, the most perky of the bunch- no one questions her spirit. Bailon loves dancing and many single men love dancing with her.   

  1. Jeannie Mai

Fashion expert Jeannie Mai specializes in clothes, so she’s the fashionable #5. In order to survive, people need clothing. And in order to thrive, you want an eye for fashion like Jeannie Mai helping you fit in your clothes.

What’s your ranking of the Real cast? Tell me in the comments.

The Like Factor of Michael Strahan


What makes you like someone? Why do certain people have a special effect on you? I believe there is something called The Like Factor.

You’re either likable or you’re not. You have it or you don’t. And Michael Strahan has it. Plus, the personality is a likable guy.

He has a big stature minus the big head. All this means he wears big pants with the deep pockets. He also wears many hats. Best known for Live! with Kelly and Michael. Right now he hosts Good Morning America.

Next up on his plate is serving as host of $100,000 Pyramid. Have you seen the commercials? He says something along the lines of “this is not what mama had in mind when she told me to get a summer job.” That’s another reason I like Michael Strahan.

The celebrity cares a great deal about his family.  He speaks highly of his father who is an army veteran. We have that in common. Army Brats stick together.

Moreover, Michael Strahan is becoming more like LL Cool J. Ladies love this most eligible bachelor. It wouldn’t surprise me if ABC arrange for him to appear on the hit TV show- The Bachelor.   

At this point in time, Michael Strahan can bank on his good name. Frankly, he is the bank with a $55 million net worth. Who wants a bailout?

For the most part, he keeps it light. He’s not afraid to try new things. In Entertainment, it’s important to be adjustable. That’s why I go with the flow.

The Like Factor of Michael Strahan has a very strong effect on people. His charisma plays a large role in his appeal to a wide audience. He’s famous for his sharp intellect and powerful work ethic too. All these qualities and more define his status.

Let’s Take a Selfie with Ed O’Neill


 Photo By: Wikimedia Commons

Summer is a day away and the weather is perfect. The sun is shining, so you are smiling. Let’s take a selfie with Ed O’Neill.

If Bill Murray ticks off the clock, Ed O’Neill has the time. What if Netflix gave this actor his own Christmas special? What is the real O’Neill like?

I don’t get into gossip. I just call them like I see them. Although Ed’s old school, he’s cool enough to be on Instagram.

First, Married with Children may be the most watched TV show ever. It clearly is one of the most watchable. Who’s watching Married with Children right now?

Fans love characters like Al Bundy. Do you think Ed O’Neill hates being called Al Bundy in public? I don’t think so.

Moreover, Modern Family remains on top of the TV show rankings. People pass remotes because grandma must see Modern Family. Maybe, you have DVR so everybody is happy.

You rarely see Ed in movies but when you do he’s the most interesting man in the world. That’s my version of the popular Dos Equis commercial. Jokes aside, his performance in the Bone Collector was no laughing matter. He demonstrated his dramatic knack in the film.

Plus he seems laid back. So laid back, he didn’t recognize Britney Spears. Here’s why I give him the benefit of doubt…

Beautiful women constantly surround Ed O’Neil. Christina Applegate. Sofia Vergara. So he doesn’t see Britney Spears as the average person does. Also, Britney wasn’t dressed like a pop star when she asked for a selfie.

It’s interesting how long Ed O’Neill’s been in business as a leading TV actor. Can you believe Married with Children will celebrate its 30th anniversary next year? What is more, this year Ed O’Neil will celebrate his 30thanniversary with his lovely wife Catherine Rusoff.

Funny Girl Margaret Cho


Comedy pushes limits. That’s why Margaret Cho is your pusher woman. She represents her hometown San Francisco beautifully. What a beautiful city and woman. Let’s celebrate Cho because that’s what we do here.

Too many celebrities get chopped up and spit out for no reason. I prefer celebrities like Margaret because she speaks her mind freely. Should we start punishing people based on their life’s perspectives?

The Korean American comedian is very vocal about change and social issues. Some will take what she said and twist it in a knot. That’s wrong. Although there’s a price to fame, it shouldn’t cost everything.

You see Cho can be extreme like Russell Brand. As a standup comedian, her comedy compares with Amy Schumer. And the comedic actress plays great supporting parts too.

Picture Margaret Cho and Ken Jeong in a movie head-to-head. Margaret Cho gets recognized because she developed her talent. Who watched Cho on the View? Her and Whoopi have awesome chemistry. You can’t fake it.

Plus Margaret Cho’s brand is built to last. Can you believe she’s 47? Her face doesn’t look a day over 35. I admire celebrities that extend their time in showbiz.

Hollywood and entertainment are the most superficial businesses. You gotta constantly prove yourself in order to make it. The funny girl has done just that.

Whether through music, on TV, or in movies, Margaret Cho’s name rings your bell. Does she have poise and grace or what? Yet her filthy mouth barks attention. I would love to see her live in person.

Funny Girl is a 1968 musical film starring Barbra Streisand. Funny girl Margaret Cho creates throwback material by paying homage to Lenny Bruce and Richard Pryor. She is a true comedian who breaks through glass ceilings.

What is more, we appreciate Margaret Cho for entertaining us and rocking the microphone for all these years.
