Tomorrow night = Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion part one.!!!! As I am a life member of Team Nene, I have been preparing myself by reliving some of my favorite Nene Moments….

Moment One…. THIS Phone call… The whole thing can be found on BravoTV.com but this is enough to give you LIFE!

And then Nene kicked Sheree off the show…. “You could use a bl-eaching.”

“Dirt and Grass” ~ Phaedra “I think I tweeted Neverland.” ~Nene Leakes

The older that I get…the more I find myself like Nene. How? Nene has no f*cks to give and no time for BS, BUT she also has a mad shady side and can stir the pot a bit… Now that I think of it, it sounds nothing like me….

beylaugh

Anyway I hope y’all tune in to watch the first part of the Reunion tomorrow. The reunions are the best part of Real Housewives franchise. I promise if you start watching…you won’t stop.

Need a prievew? Here ya go….

Trash Travels: My Night with The Read

So this past Tuesday night, I got the chance to attend The Read’s 1-Year Anniversary Show in New York with friend of the blog, Brash!

Needless to say, it was amazing. For those of you who don’t know, The Read is a podcast featuring Kid Fury and Crissle, two friends who are fantastically smart and witty who discuss celebrity news, take letters from their readers, and then read whatever is annoying them that week.

It’s a fantastic show that allows you to lose yourself for an hour and just laugh. If you haven’t listened, just here…go laugh.

I got to New York about two hours before the start of the show and made my way to the venue (after stuffing my face).  I got there a little early and got in line because seats were first come, first serve.  It was great to see the line form for the event though this annoying boy and his baggy leather pants needed to shut up. 

This was my first chance to see the show live after jealously hearing about it all year. So Dustin introduced our hosts after a fly playlist and dance off.

Cue a little dance from Fury.  Some of my favorite lines from last night include the following:

“She doesn’t even get eye boogers. They are like crystals!” -Crissle on Lupita N’yongo

“I was inspired by Ellen, so here is one bag of the Purple Doritos” -Kid Fury being gracious

“Da Brat needs a limited edition strap.” -Crissle on Da Brat

“I can offer her a Netflix password.” -Kid Fury on being in this situation

“Nene’s teeth look like 30 iPad minis.” -Kid Fury on the DWTS cast

“Cabbagepoochie” – Kid Fury on Chris Brown’s girlfriend/ex/boothang

“DON’T DO THIS BLACK PEOPLE!” -Crissle on the audience reaction

“You’re far outside your business.” -Kid Fury

But the best revelation of the evening was that Kid Fury loves Cookout.  Being North Carolina born and bred, Cookout is a treasure to me.  The many late night meals and deliciousness that I’ve enjoyed from that establishment.

As I was writing this, Class and I just reminisced about ordering a Big Double Burger Cheddar Style.    Ugh..college was great.

Also, Crissle’s story about the lacefront eyebrows???  I cackled.  It was too much.

But anyway, I really enjoyed my time.  I thought that the Read really translated to the live format and both hosts were a delight.  There was room to sit and the venue was comfortable.  If they come to your city, I’d highly suggest going to see them.

Have a great day and give the show a listen!

Is this Black History Month?

THROWBACK!!!!!

Once upon a time, Reality TV was simple. They threw people up in a house and let them deal. This is when the Real World was GREAT! Here’s a short flashback of when the Real World was relevant.

Coral SLAYS. The Miz SLAYS. This was an INCREDIBLE season. I remember watching every single episode. Coral was on this show to educate the people! She was reading before reading was cool. OKAY?!

Example two:

So now you know not to call people “Panty-Droppin freaks”. Important life lessons I needed to know back in the day.

So what is todays lesson? Coral said it best….Don’t celebrate your ignorance brotha! We want reports from those that didn’t know it was Black History Month (No but really).

Happy Monday Y’all!

Oh and they made up by the end of the season. It wasn’t all hate. MAN I miss this show/season!

Go on and follow, like, and find us on twitta yo (ClassNTrashShow!

Dear Frank Gaston,

Listen Frank. We love you and all you do for Bey. Really. We do. She KILLS the choreography you give her. However, Queen Bey can you call Yanis and get some new routines? Y’all get into this!!!! I thought my bedroom choreography slayed until Yanis happened and showed me how it done….in heels. Let me go practice. If you hear that I broke my neck, you will know EXACTLY why. 

A  real post is on it’s way…I just had to get this out of my system. Carry on #StanMomentOver

 

It’s Britney B*tch!

I love Ms. Britney Jean Spears. I really do. However, someone out there in the internet had the nerve to ask, “Why does Britney Spears always get snubbed at the Grammy’s?” Excuse me?! Britney is the princess of pop but she has fallen off of the throne. You can’t be mad at her either. All she wants to do is have a family, raise her kids, drink a frap, and eat Cheetos. CAN SHE LIVE??! Yet y’all keep demanding more from her and she drags her lazy butt out on the stage only for people to be disappointed in her performance. The Grammy’s haven’t snubbed her, they just recognize that she lacks depth. I understand that at one point she served us aggressive hair flips and fierce choreography….

But recently…. not so much….

 1)   We all understand that Britney does not sing live a lot of the time. (Trying to be nice here.) Why? Because this is what it sounds like live….

Girl what are those notes? What are those runs?! Is anything about this Grammy worthy?! GURL BYE! PLEASE keep it real and don’t lie on this girl and say those were flawless vocals. Can you imagine at this years Grammy Britney following a P!nk or Adele performance? That would be downright RUDE!

 

2) I can already hear the Brit stans saying, “Well Britney is a dancer. It has always been about performance not about her voice.” That’s good and all but we can’t forget this gem….. 

When Rihanna is laughing…you REALLY have a problem.

 

3) Okay FINE that was a low blow. She was going through some things I get it. She was really slaying the dance scene during the femme fatale era correct? WRONG.COM She was just as lazy and uninspired as ever. 

::lazily pops chests, jumps in air, flips blonde extensions::

I just don’t have the TIME. Whitney Houston….Celine Dion….Mariah Carey… THOSE women win Grammys….Britney Girl, you can win all the VMAs you want. 

4) Maybe the Grammy’s are a bit upset that XFactor allowed her to judge SINGERS…. Out of all the people you could pick to judge SINGING, she might be the least qualified. Who are they going to ask next? Cassie? Ciara? Mickey Mouse? You failed Simon Cowell. 

5) This Gif sums up how many bothers she has left to give…

I will give credit where credit is due. The new Vegas show looks really cute! I’m not flying out to Vegas to see it because frankly I can listen to the Cd’s and give fierce choreography in my apartment; BUT it does look like she is bending her knees more and flipping her hair with some passion. That should be applauded y’all! (No shade….okay a bit of shade.)

Moral of the story is: Entertaining? YES! Grammy award winner? No to the ma’am. Case closed. Bloopity bloop and plonk. 

Am I the only one who thinks that if she wants a Grammy, she better work b*tch? What are your thoughts? Does Britney still have “it”? Go ahead and follow @ClassNTrashShow on twitter or just follow this blog and let us know in the comments! (Go do it now…RIGHT NOW!) 

Pour it up, Pour it up!!!!

HAPPY FRIDAY Y’ALL!!!!! ::shimmies::

Well for today’s post I decided to share my love for Miss Rihanna Fenty. As a PROUD and very vocal member of the BeyHive, a post praising Rihanna may seem a bit off. Fun fact Friday: I own three Rihanna albums. SO for your Friday post I decided to present to you the top 10 reasons why we should all appreciate the woman known as Rihanna.

1) Let’s be honest. Despite how I feel about her being called an icon (rolls eyes), Rihanna is a stunning Barbadian beauty. There is nothing about her that isn’t pretty. Congrats Rihanna you win all of the beauty prizes. Pretty hurts, right?

Image

2) Birthday. Cake. THIS SONG SLAYS. That beat hits and all parts of my body go round and round, up and down. Jiggle. Shimmy. Let’s be clear; the version with Chris Brown needs to go die somewhere. I only support the version with JUST Rih. STOP GIVING CHRIS BROWN MONEY. Thanks.

3) Trying to get your workout on? I DARE you to turn on “Where Have You Been” and tell me you don’t run a little faster. Don’t believe me? Try for yourself.

4) Perfect party music. There is no denying it, Rihanna is internationally known to rock a microphone. We all know her and know her songs. Turn on her music everywhere and everyone will be united in body rolling, raising their dranks (yes I meant to type dranks), and getting all of the LIFE to some Rihanna. If you don’t think this is true you haven’t seen a room full of people RUSH to the floor when Birthday Cake plays or you haven’t seen #TeamTrash show everyone how the Rude Boy Choreography REALLY goes (No Shade).

5) This.(Navy fans don’t get offended we allllll have embarrassing videos out there somewhere.)

6) Rihanna has NO TIME to deal with “da Hataz”.

Image

7) Rihanna also taught us how to deal with all those pesky pregnancy rumors (I hate when that happens.)

Image

8) She taught us how to get our live bands in CHECK when they mess up.

9) Has your man or woman been acting right all week? Try out these sexy lap dance moves tonight. #AlwaysClassy

10) OH my bad; has he been acting wrong? Oh girl, NO!!!! TIME TO BREAK SOME DISHES! (But this really is one of my favorite Rihanna Songs.)

What are some of you’re favorite Rihanna moments? Hope y’all have a beautiful Friday and enjoy the weekend. Don’t forget to follow us here and then head on over to the Twitter and hit that little follow button @ClassNTrashShow. Stay Classy!

“I don’t keep up with Joneses, I am the Joneses.” – Nene Leakes

Linnethea Monique Leakes (Nene Leakes) is a real housewife of Atlanta and one of my Queens. Now before you roll your eyes and stop reading give this a chance! Nene has a humble beginning: small town girl, stripped to pay the bills (bandz made her dance! Ayeeeee!), married rich, became a real housewife, became an actual actress outside of reality TV, saved her marriage, and managed to not make a name for herself merely by hopping on different trashy reality shows and fighting with people. Now yes, she can be loud but she keeps it real.  She described herself perfect; “Let me get you to understand I don’t bully anybody. I stand up for what I believe in and I’m very honest and I always tell the truth. I’m not a liar, I’m not manipulative and I don’t stab you in your back because I will stab you in your chest.”

So here are 5 life lessons that Nene has taught us.

1)   “Close ya legs to married men!” But really. It’s 2014. These trollops have GOT to stop sleeping around with married men, women, or both(didn’t want to leave anyone out). Just don’t do it. While I’m parked right here, all those cheaters in general, go somewhere else with that. Until you do right, your life will never be right. OKAY?! (snaps fingers in Z formation)

2)   “You touch me girl, I will wear that wig off your head. A straight hooker. Andy, I’m gonna respect you and let you do this interview next to this trashbox. Trashy hooker. Go on.” – Listen, sometimes you need to check someone and let him or her know what time it is. I try to remain calm, cool, and collected at all times. The problem is that it tricks people into thinking you are weak and they can walk all over you. No ma’am, not today or EVER! God gave of mouths, voices, words, and opinions. USE THEM (Wisely. You probably don’t want to pop off at the president of your company or Oprah). Don’t let anyone steal your shine.

3)   “I’m just not into trying to convince people to like me. I always say to myself, ‘It is what it is.’ I walk into a situation knowing that people are either going to love me or they’re going to love me or they’re not, and that’s OK. I’m just going to be me. You can’t be everything to everyone.”  Y’all I just ran around my room in praise in worship. Not everyone is going to like you in life. Point. Blank. Period. Don’t stress over it and REALLY take the time to appreciate those people that love you for YOU! Can I get an amen from the choir? It’s one of those lessons that people learn in their own time, but once you learn it your REAL friendships become stronger.

 4)   “I think that everyone is saying all kinds of things about ’rich.’ Not only am I rich from doing some of the things I’ve been able to do, but I’m rich in spirit. I’m rich in health. I’m rich in every possible way.”  I’m just as guilty as everyone in believing that while money can’t buy happiness, it surely can buy you a crap ton of things (or at least pay off my car and student loans). If someone put a million dollars in your bank account today, TRY and tell me that after you body rolled, whipped your hair, and popped your booty, you wouldn’t be ten times happier! That being said, while we all wait for this money to magically appear, we do need to begin shifting our focus to the richness in life that we have. Yes, it is hard to believe that we are rich in life every time an agent from our student loan providers calls wanting more money that we CLEARLY don’t have, BUT at least we are alive to receive that phone call, right?!

 5)   “I am here now because I am supposed to be here. And I guess when it is my time to cross over there, I will be over there. I am not religious, but I am spiritual, honey. My day is coming!” Be Patient. Be Daring. Be Bold. Be Great. Know that nothing in life lasts forever, so if you’re going through something, it has to end. What we can’t do is kick are feet back, eat Ben and Jerrys Milk and Cookies Ice Cream (GET INTO THIS FLAVOR THO! Thank us later), and expect life to change in the way we want it. Hard work is always rewarded at SOME point in life. If you’re really feeling down and out ask yourself, what would Beyonce do? Oh you know, Perform at the Presidents inauguration, Perform at the Superbowl, wake innocent people up early in the morning for a PEPSI COMMERCIAL (still pressed about it), go on a sold out world tour, be a wife, raise a child, OH and record a flawless album with accompanying videos (Girl WHAT and HOW?). Stan moment over but really….go and be GREAT y’all!
