Writer's Block: Things You Don't Want to Know

If you knew that a friend's significant other was cheating on him or her, would you tell your friend the truth or keep it to yourself?


I...would tell. Mind you, I've had a boyfriend cheat on me ... and my bff at the time knew and didn't tell me because was also sleeping him. The cost of friendship may be at stake...but a true friend will always have your best interest at heart. So therefore, you should always have your friend's best interest in mind when you think about whether or not to spill the beans.

Writer's Block: Take Your Chances

Do you think people deserve second chances?


Depends on why they need the second chance.

I should have stuck with Chocolate Brown.

So after all of the things I did for my cousin, she finally did my weave but (oh yes there is a but) I'm not really feeling this color, and its already annoying. I just got it done. How horrible is that? Its a brown that's not quite chocolate and not quite honey. oOMG!

My best friend just lost two grandma's in two months. And its not like the grandma you never talk to...they were close. First she lost her's then her husband lost his. Its so....depressing. I need sake.

Wha- huh?

Writer's Block: Close Encounters of the Celebrity Kind

Have you ever met a celebrity in real life? Who was it and how did your paths cross?

Yeah. Eva Pigford, winner of America's Next Top Model season 3. We went to the same church for many years.

I met Tyra Banks. I got to talk to her after we taped her show when it was still in LA. She gave me hug. It was nice.

I met Bruce Willis when he got his star on the Hollywood walk of fame. Same with Destiny's Child. I guess I was just in the right place at the right time.

Life Sucks

Today is the anniversary of the death of Elizabeth Short, also known as the Black Dahlia. What real-life murder story are you most fascinated by?


I am actually kind of interested in The Black Dahlia. She was was murdered around the corner from where I currently live in Leimert Park in Los Angeles.

Writer's Block: Misdirected Mail

Have you ever replied to or cc'ed someone on an email that was definitely not intended for their eyes? Or received one that was about you but wasn't meant for you to read? What was the email about and how did you react?

I had the unfortunate time of receiving an email from my former Artistic Director not two hours after she let me go from her dance company. I was quite shocked to find that some of the things we had discussed were twisted for the benefit of making her look better.

First of all apparently dancers couldn't get along with me. At least that's what they said behind my back. To my face they appeared as if nothing was wrong. When I was let go she accused several of the dancers of saying I had animosity towards them, but in the email it was quite the opposite. Suddenly I was the one with all the problems. By the way, I was CC on every email she sent because she forgot to take me off the list.

I didn't respond until I got the latest one. Which said basically that two of the newest understudies were going through the same thing. The veteran dancers sort of "ganged up" on them say things like "her personality doesn't mesh with us...she's too aggressive" or "she's such a diva" or "She's too snide". The majority of the comments I know not be true. The email went on to say that She had enough of letting dancers go, so they were either gonna get along the company would be the dissolved. Mind you, besides me, she let go of FIVE dancers because the veterans couldn't get along with them.

I had enough. I take one of her classes, so I waited till most of the dancers who had crossed me arrived. Then she and I "talked". Although I did get kinda loud (on purpose) I basically said, If all of these things are true, then why did you basically tell me I was disposable and unworthy of finding another method of dealing with the problems. Clearly, there IS and WAS another method. I dare you to tell your dancers just how much they really mean to you, which dancers you would chose over others and how much crap you would and will take from certain dancers, even going so far as to reject numerous other girls who are clearlytalented? I dare you to explain it to them.

Needless to say she was pissed off. There were whispers behind me of 'Ohmigod. How did she know? What's [insert bitch's name here] gonna do?'

Oh well.

RIP John Lennon. The list of sudden and unexpected celebrity deaths is long—Princess Di, Heath Ledger, Kurt Cobain, Marilyn Monroe, and many more. Which one affected you the most on an emotional level?

Most recently, Heath Ledger's death affected me the most. It was so unexpected and so tragic that I could even sit through the previews of The Dark Knight. I would cry every time. That's what he is going to be remembered for, being lunatic. But I will remember him as William in A Knight's Tale. He was young, fresh and determined.
