Korto Came So Close To Winning

Posted in Africa, Fashion & Style, TV on October 15, 2008 by missmwabi

I am so proud of Korto for coming so close to winning Project Runway.  I know she was dissapointed not to be declared the winner but she has to be proud of making it so far and getting praise from some big names.  I would not be surprised if a big name designer has scooped her up as they did Austin Scarlett back in Season 1.  Korto’s talent is undeniable and I would buy her designs in a heartbeat.  I look forward to seeing her future in the design world.  I loved her walking the runway with her daughter..what a moment.  Congratulations Korto, African girl.  You represented us well and you ROCKED!

Enjoy her entire collection from Bryant Park.

Kimora’s My She-ro :)

Posted in Celebrity, Fashion & Style, TV on October 9, 2008 by missmwabi

I soooo enjoy all things Kimora Lee!  I have no shame.

I just love the way she runs her business, how she mothers her kiddies, how she takes no crap…I could go on and on.  I love how she gave the Barbie people heat when they tried to bully her.

I dvr and watch The Fabulous Life over and over and read all magazines KiKi is in.

I was over the moon the other night when E! aired her true Hollywood story.  It was great to see her humble beginnings, her old interviews, her Mom and yes both Russell and Djimon saying wonderful things about her.  The internets try to make mountains out of mole hills about Kiki and Russey but like Will and Jada they all along with the new loves in their lives and they have their multi million dollar business and gorgeous girls at heart.  Speaking of their girls, how do I love Aoki Lee?!!! OMG, she is so the business.  I want to see her in her teen years.

We already know Tyra and Kiki have been friends forever but I was surprised to see Kim Porter as one of Kiki’s bridesmaids, who knew?  I didn’t even know they were friends.

Amanda = Nadupoi on Exiled

Posted in Africa, Foolishness, TV on October 6, 2008 by missmwabi

Meet Amanda.  She’s one of those spoiled brats on MTV’s Sweet 16 who want the moon and the stars from their willing parents and don’t even give a thank you.  MTV knew there were on to something with this one. The show got people talking….you were either a parent who couldn’t believe the crazy demands from these kids or you were a teen who couldn’t wait to get your own elaborate sweet 16 on a not so elaborate budget.

Well, MTV went back to the drawing board and came up with Exiled.  Exiled is a show that takes former Sweet 16ers and places them in parts of the world unlike their own to teach them about life…or something like that.  Uh huh.

Amanda is sent off to live with the Masai tribe in Kenya and she in true TV fashion can’t stand it for 75% of the episode then suddenly switches gears and becomes a new person with a whole new perspective, just like that.

The gem of this episode had to be Josephine, Amanda’s host.  Josephine keeps her cool throughout the entire episode.  If MTV really wants to impress me, they need to bring the hosts from these countries to the U.S. and give them a week of extravegance and tape that.

Barack Obama on The View

Posted in Africa, Celebrity, TV on March 31, 2008 by missmwabi

Barack held his own with the ladies from The View.

You know there are some opinions on there!

I love that he shook Elisabeth’s hand while hugging the rest of the ladies. lol

Sherry even went as far as telling Barack that she was for Hillary until she heard his race speech and now she wants to campaign for him. Go Barack!

Watch Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4.

Sheg Off Oprah’s Big Give

Posted in TV on March 31, 2008 by missmwabi

sheg

Contestant Olusegun Sheg Aranmolate was on of the 10 chosen contestants by Oprah Winfrey for the show Oprah’s Big Give.

He did well as he made it all the way past the half way mark and was the sixth person to be booted off.

Sheg gave big but the judges felt that he didn’t ask a family in need what they needed.  Instead, he gave them what he thought they needed.

Sheg and his father started a foundation, The Aranmolate Foundation for Deformed Children.

There is no question that his appearance on the show will only help him in anything he does.

Oprah does have the magic touch and it is safe to call her Sheg’s Fairy Godmother in this case.
