So I was thinking

it's sunday...and the most of what i've done today that i would consider productive is I returned Something New to BlockBuster...if ever there was a bad black movie made that was touted to be good...it's that movie. I was not happy with it at all. The story line wasnt developed properly. If you saw the preview, the clips shown were the only mildly interest parts of the movie...everything else was like WTF? I had a giftcard so it didnt really pain me that I rented it. Thank God I didnt buy it though i was tempted. I usually buy movies if I want to see it because renting it forces you to watch it for a specific period. Oprah said it was good...me and Ms Winfrey are going to need to have a 1-0n-1 about that.
I was thinking about reality shows today. I went to work and a colleague was asking if we were going to watch the show Flavor of Love. Has anyone seen it? I cant stomach that show. I mean why would anyone want to date a guy that walks around with a big clock around his neck. I was told some lady shit on the floor...may I ask why? I was also told there was a white lady who when Flavor Flave was tryna get closer to her was like "This isnt me"...yeah...you think?
anyways I was thinking...
i thought it would be interesting if we had Big Brother: Bloggers or Survivor Bloggers or The Bachelor Bloggers or the Amazing Race Bloggers...you get the idea. Every reality show but with bloggers. Just imagining the particpants would be interesting.
For Big brothers, I think Miguel, NaijaBloke, Delot, Mojo, Sola, Morountodun, Dipo and for the ladies Onada, Uzo, Bijou, LondonBuki, Low, Nneka, Rose-Tinted glasses
For The Bachelor: hmmm...who will be our Bachelor...I have one person in mind but I want him for myself for now so I wont share that :-). Do yall have any suggestions. I think Miguel is single...Mojo...how could i forget...that's one seriously eligible bachelor....anyone interested?
For The Bachelorette: since Temmy is now single...maybe when she's ready to mingle she can do it. Belle seems like she would make a wonderful candidate...she's got humor...she's smart...she's from Ijebu..neeed I say more? Not sure if Ms.May is single but yeah...she'd be great too. Soul...her aura is so...beautiful...we have to put Mosaic in this one so that if she wins we can crash her wedding :-)
Amazing Race: For sure LondonBuki cuz she probably already has what it takes...and NaijaBloke (he needs motivation for panting after 7 flights of stairs...lol)
Survivor: Again may I suggest LondonBuki, Temmy, TaureanMinx, Low, Olawunmi, most definitely Delot...infact Delot should be in all the shows, well except the Bachelorette. NaijaBloke along with all the Ijebu babes out there, BGT, Biodun.... How would we divide the groups... More Crazy vs Less Crazy. Ijebu v Non-Ijebu...hmmmm
American/UK Idol: my blogger boo for sure...baby can sing! and Me....dont worry...ear plugs will be provided...lol...and Miguel, brother can blllooooooowwwww
how can i forget
Top Model: Adaure hands down...abeg that girl can work it o dont play.....Ms May with that Freakum dress...oh yeah...she can work it too...Low, Onada and Icy for sure
***updates***
Top Chef: Miguel most definitely...we have to test his cooking skills. Low can throw down and me I try small...Kulutempa perhaps
RealWorld Blogsville and RoadRules: oya..NB...
**more to come..this is all i could think of right now...all lists subject to change. If your name isnt listed, self-nomination is allowed.
anyways, I was just thinking...
hope your weekend was great

Diamond, THANK YOU for telling me about Something New. I saw the preview and was thinking I was gonna ask my sis to buy it for me from the U.S. The preview makes the movie look good. I don't think I'll bother!

I like your reality blogger idea...LOL!!! I never really knew what Amazing Race was about, just checked it out... umm... OK! LOL!!!

I agree with Miss May being in the NTM cos that Freakum dress was beyond HOT!!!!

Yes Onada oh! With that HOT dress I saw in her pics! And for sure, Low and Adaure... fab dressers!

I sent you one song, hope you got it. Will send a couple more during the week, been so busy!

Have a fab week Girl!

My blinging lady, i don't understand this ur yarns. Could you please break it down. As for that Flavor Flav or whatever fake name he's called. That dude isn't all that. I wonder why people would want to even date him sef, with the yeye clock he wears on his neck. Saw the show once, and i was pissed for wasting my time, watching it.

Uzo said...

But i loved Something New. Loved it.

I love the idea of the blogger reality show. I want to be in more than Big Brother. I would love to be in the Amazing Race. My favorite reality show of all time. I love travel and adventure so i would fit right in. Who would i pick as my partner? That would be a right pickle.

Ehm...The Bachelor part of your blog....You have someone in mind but you want him for yourself? Ah....No comment..Actually a lot of comments which i think i shall save.

Cherub (former Bijouxoxo) said...

Oh i get it now. Gosh! I can be so slow sometimes. Anyways, i'm interested. I was going to comment on that one too, about the bachelor u have in mind and want for urself. Hmmm... Diamond, what of BF? You can't just "jabo" him like that. My blinging lady isn't innocent afterall, she's eyeing some bloke on blogger. What makes me think i know the person sef?

diamond said...

@Buki. you have two opinions on that movie. the dialogue was boring. the concept was great but bad execution

@bijou...you're studying too much that's why. take a break. i always offer people wine to relax...do you drink...if yes, have a glass of red wine on me...room temp only!

as for as the Bachelor part...hmm...I'll keep him to myself for a while but I want to know who you think it is Bijou. You may know since you read my blog...

my boyfriend? Aihammed off'd him couple posts ago...so you know...lol

diamond said...

@LondonBuki...forgive my manners...I cant believe I didnt send you a Thank You email. I got it...thank you thank you...you're a sweet heart

Cherub (former Bijouxoxo) said...

Madam Diamond, is this person a blogger? Do i visit his blogs? Do u live in the same State or not too far? If yes, then i know the person.

I don't drink, but in May i had a sip of Alize and in August i had another sip of red wine, I don't care what u say, i still don't drink.

diamond said...

bijou...now you've really sparked my curiosity. tell me and i'll confirm yes or no

Onya Baquebeich said...

I want to be in Bachelorette as well...i'm open minded...lol.
Yeah you've got someone in mind for the Bachelour but want him for yourself. Sounds to me like you're about to do an Ulrika Johnson...ever watch Mr Right? She hosted the show and then proceeded to have the main prize for herself. Think they had a baby et al.

ms may said...

Thanks for the love o! God bless you and londonbuki for thinking I could even be a candidate for NTM...my head dey swell small. LOL. As for the Bachelorette, that situation may be playing out in my life right now......just kidding o! LOL. I dunno, I haven't really gotten into any of the reality shows but I could def get into the blogworld version.

And I enjoyed Something New o...I agree that the story wasn't developed as much as it could have been but let's remember it's Hollywood...they still have a long way to go when dealing with interracial issues including in romance. It was still a cute movie though and inspired discussion with my girlfriends.

NaijaBloke said...

Yes o.. for the amazing race,hmm.. dont be fool by me panting after running 7 flights of stairs o.

For the survivor issue ..Bring on the IWAs(Ijebu Women Association) as long as it is not going to be anywhere in Ogun state,cos they can request for supporters from any nearby village.LOL.

@Xoxo ..U took a sip of Alize in May and a sip of wine in August.Gurl how in the heck can u remember the month,abegggggg ..Ama send u a bottle of Alize ASAP for ur maximum enjoyment.

Nice post o.

mosaic said...

Your mind really got going with the ideas. But, brilliant ideas! LOL. Hmmm...maybe we can get some type of contest going online. Have fellow bloggers vote or something.

Also, who is this "blogger boo?" "Blogger Boo" LOL............where do you pull them from.

DiAmOnD hawk said...

@mosaic...your name is missing...i think we'll put you in The Bachelorette...you know i was thinking we really should do something interactive that will get all the bloggers involved...but that's where my own thinking stopped

as per my Blogger Boo...oh yes...you dont have one?...we'll work on that :-)

@LondonBuki...it seems ive been outnumbered...my suggestion is to go to BlockBuster (i assume they're in england as well) and rent it first....

Icy said...

hahahahahaha that would be interesting to see. I'm with you babz... I CAN NOT FOR THE LIFE OF ME STAND FLAOR OF IFE.. eeeeeuuu groooosssssseeee Everything else.. I'm with you lol!

The Life of a Stranger called me said...

This will be quite interesting to see..LOL.

Cherub (former Bijouxoxo) said...

My blinging lady, u're a typical Nigerian. Answering a question with another question. U didn't answer the 3 questions i posed. Answer them first, then i'd e-mail u to tell u my top 2 choices, but i think it's the first one. I don't want to put it in the comments section, JUST B'COS ...

@NB: I remember the months, 'cos i hardly ever drink. It's really rare. I forgot to include that i also had half a cup of Budweiser in August too. As for the Alize offer, i say a BIG NO, THANK YOU to that. Don't turn me into an "omuti." It's not even right for me to take anything alcoholic.

DiAmOnD hawk said...

what if i said yes...what would your response be...and if i said no?...well he's a blogger for sure...
as far as the same state...it depends...define state? lolllllll
and do you visit his blogs...im sure you must

never tried Alize before...how'd it taste...im really not much of a drinker...just the occasional wine...either cook w/it...or just use it to relax

Cherub (former Bijouxoxo) said...

U're just making things complicated. C'mon, State as in the same State in the U.S. Which one is what if i say Yes or No in this matter. Is it Yes or is it No to the 3 questions i posed above? You know i visit his blogs of course, 'cos i've commented on some of his posts.

Aliz has this kinda fruity taste to it. At least, the one i tasted. It doesn't taste too alcoholic though, so u could get drunk on it before u know what's up. In your village back in Nigeria, did u use to cook with wine? I see u're now Yankeenized. Keep it up, just remember no Naija man will eat food cooked with wine with you sha.

DiAmOnD hawk said...

LOLLLLLLLL.....we do not live in the same state...O YA...this suspense is doing me in for real

im going to do a recipe post and give you the recipe for Chicken Marsala...Keep your man chicken marsala...using marsala wine...it's heavenly...but u have to diet for a couple of days before that

Cherub (former Bijouxoxo) said...

Chei! That has already knocked off one of 'em. Talk true o. Does he live in the U.S and do u both live in States that are close. C'mon give the sista a clue now. Answer only these questions no more clues after that and see if i won't get it right. I'd mail u sha when i think i've got the answer, 'cos i don't want trouble.

Abeg, keep ur chicken marsala recipe to urself. I don't want, abi na by force.

diamond said...

@Delot...i havent heard of Ms.Johnson but Im going to google her now...that's funny though...they should have a clause against somn like that, non

@Ms.May...the movie definitely gave something to talk about...was going to blog about it...about going beyond our defined parameters...i dont think that movie is worth buying...only renting

diamond said...

i want you to try it Bijou...you'll love it...or beef stroganoff...i have a simple recipe for it...

the answer is no to part a and b

Cherub (former Bijouxoxo) said...

So he doesn't live in the same State as you, not even close and he doesn't live in the U.S. Oya, gimme the recipe lemme try it. I luv cooking, especially trying new stuff out. I'm e-mailing u now.

DiAmOnD hawk said...

madam detective...are you sure you and uzo are not working together...

Cherub (former Bijouxoxo) said...

Did u get my mail? Oya, i'm awaiting ur reply. I'm innocent o. Uzo and i aren't working together

Belle said...

Oh wow!!!! bwahahahahaha... awesome idea maaan! Where can i sign up for the bachelorette? Can i bribe someone so that i'm definitely chosen?? LOL

So who is this mysterious bachelor candidate that you want to hog?? ehn? Didn't they teach you in sunday school that "sharing is caring"?!! ehn? shiooooo!

Uzo said...

Okay. I give up. Can we do some sort of blogger show thingy. Like an online version of somethingg. You bloggers are mad mad mad but i love it.

diamond said...

yeah...uzo...i think it wud be fun...se u'll plan it. enlist the help of olawunmi and delot

@Belle...you know during sunday school...there were some kids that would be hanging outside and running around...that was me...missed so many lessons :-)

Mojo said...

OOOIII!!!!!!
no fair! is the survivor blogger restricted to ijebu's or yorubas as a whole? if so, i grew up in lagos and the locals have dubbed me "Oluwachijioke". I would be looking forward to a head to head against Delot, there's a pending battle- watch this space.

ps- Thanks for the blogger bachelor nomination, Something New was pants if u were expecting a lot. it's quite watchable but bland as it doesnt actually give u anything new.

diamond said...

o no Mojo...it's not restricted to Yoruba's at all...my error if it seems that way...

you and Delot...now that should be interesting

olawunmi said...

me i am vexing o. i want to be on big brother too dammit!!!!

diamond said...

ma binu...i'll update the list...i wasnt sure you and delot together would be great for the others you know...you'd be like the "chill town" of blogsville you know

Miguel said...

Diamond thanks (shedding tears). I'll like to dedicate this award to the nurses that screamed when I was brought into this world... I actually thought they were singing come to find out years later, they were terrified...lol...

But wait oo you've never heard me sing so how do you know i sing?

Cherub (former Bijouxoxo) said...

Sit down there Miguel, I say u just sit down there and shine ur eyes very well. Were u not at Rhyna and BJ's wedding and did u not sing? Did u not tell us u were going to sing? U think u're still annonymous, right? Your cover was blown a long time ago.

Gosh! I know too much stuff for my own good. Sapphire Aster thinks i'm a stalker sef. If i become a private investigator/ detective, i'd make it.

Nneka's World said...

Hey Diamond, thanks for my nomination into the the big brother house, when do we start, any ibo gyals allowed into it?

My lord the comments here have been making me howl with laughter!!

Anyway i have a clue who the blogger you want to hog to yourself is.... is it......R......
Oh well

NaijaBloke said...

Me sef dan vex now,me sef wan be The Bachelor jo and enter me for the Super chef as well.

All the Ijebu Women Association be warned cos this hunk has started his training sessions for "Survivor" cos I have been hearing hints that it is going down in Alaska during the Winter season.

Miguel said...

Bijou...I am still anonymous ooo do you know how many people sang at Bj and Rhynas wedding? lol... Diamond didnt make it to the wedding so my question is valid ooo

temmy said...

Ok,(cough cough)For the Bachelorette: I quite agree with you. I am ready to mingle but not ready to pick(if u get me point).
Survivor: Uhmn, na me go be class captain o.

Great idea you have here darling. Will add more to the list as i browse the blog world!

Who is this guy that you want for yasef now, i thout you love all your blogger friends? rmbr that LOVE IS SHARING O! Lets share him now.Ok,at least share the name. Biko.

DiAmOnD hawk said...

Nneka...is R...A? LOL

hmmm...Miguel..you're not anonymous to me. :-)

@Temmy...it's for his sake that I dont want to share...we'll see

@NB...alaska in winter abi...it's only you that will be there! lol

Cherub (former Bijouxoxo) said...

Okay, we've all been happy about this idea. Even we've tried to decipher Diamond's blogger bloke/ crush, some failed woefully *shakes head in pity* and some came close, really close and some even discovered they're no longer annonymous on blogger while some others are going to Alaska in winter. Infact, a lot of drama has been going on here, that i really can't wait for this reality thingy to start.
So back to the topic, how do u want to bring this wonderful idea to life?

Biodun said...

LOL, this post cracked me up, I am a couple of days late, but o well, yes o bring it on, I will like to be on survivor n you had it on point o, ijebu's vs. non-ijebu's lol. You didnt like Somethin New ke, that movie was burns, loved it o

The Life of a Stranger called me said...

If all these comments have anything to do with the real stuff, this is better than any show I've watched.
I can't wait to read up the goings out. When will it all start.. Terribly excited.

Dipo Tepede said...

I am very interested in the BIG BROTHER o.

Kindly keep me posted.

When is it starting?

TaureanMinx said...

Lol, survivor MEEEE? They'd all beat me up and throw me into cyberspace! But im ready sha lol. Im single toooo though! lol.

NaijaBloke said...

Now this thing has gotten to a stage here now that we have to start pairing ppl.

Diamond ..oya quick add "Real World Blogsville and Road Rules"" to the list.

Oya all the Lads in da house to one side and all the Lasses(make I for yen like a jandoner).Oya pick ya partners for the Road Rules and we will take it from there.

Then each pair will have to come up with a task for the whole group as a pair to do,but we have a problem on who will be the Judges sha.

Olawunmi said...

[rubbing hands together excitedly]
