Mexi-Fanta, Downton, & Suzie

MEXICAN FANTA ORANGEEven though it is so unhealthy, once in a while I allow myself a Mexi-Fanta in a glass bottle.  Mexi-Fanta is made with sugar instead of corn syrup and it is undeniably fucking sublime when served ice cold.  I justify the imported prices because glass bottled soda is cute to keep around and offer company as a fun alternative to the usual choices. SODA WITH STRAWDOWNTON ABBEY SEASON 4 LADY MARY AND GEORGEAre you watching season 4 of Downton Abbey?  I don’t want to spoil it, so I’ll give you a few days to catch up.  The ingenious among you will be able to figure out how to watch it even though it is airing now in the U.K.  The premiere was a snooze, but I’m holding out hope this show recaptures some of its season one glory.ANNA AND BATES

SUZIE KETCHAMBasketball Wives lost its luster a few seasons ago, but we need to address the Suzie situation.  I thought it would settle, but whatever “dental” work Suzie had done has rendered her unrecognizable.  I thought her cute little lisp was charming, and now she’s down right reptilian.  Unfortch.    SUZIE BB WIVES

Roman’s Revenge

Shaunie O’Neal has gifted us all with a little gem this Christmas in the form of the return of Tami Roman as the newest cast member of Basketball Wives.  Some folks may remember Tami’s spicy blend from the original Real World L.A., which aired waaay back in 1993 (before some ya’ll bitches was even born).  Tami famously demonstrated the double negative bitch bounce, “it wasn’t not funny,” before joining pitchforks with Beth and permanently running David out the house.  Observant ones know that this incident wasn’t the first or last time a black man has felt the sharp end of MTV‘s bigot stick.Since her days on MTV, Tami married and divorced Kenny AndersonTami and Kenny have two teenage daughters who Tami claims she’s raising (financially) alone.  Her fishy pre-nup story doesn’t jive with legal precedent, so there’s probably a whole lot more to that story then she’s admitting.  Kenny is currently remarried to an older version of Sagen from Running Russell Simmons and playing stay-at-home daddy to a new batch of kids.Tami brings a down-and-out element to the otherwise boughetto (credit Kandi Burruss via Ali & Murphey Lee) ensemble cast.  Already Evelyn and Jennifer got their noses in the air cracking on Roman’s food-stamp past.  Expect Tami’s ladylike self-restraint to maintain for about two more episodes, max.  Theme your Sunday morning brunches around a wig snatch ya’ll.
