Short n Sassy

I went back to my texturized look after rocking a wig for close to a month. Yeah I tried to stick it out, but I missed my short, no fuss, perfect for summertime short style. Nothing against wigs, weaves, and the ladies that love em, but the short style for the summer is what I prefer.
Now for the future, I may get a wig or weave for those special occasions, but this chocolate covered sister likes a low maintenance look so I can hit the streets without worrying if a wig is straight and looks natural, and one that allows my scalp to breathe.
What's your look of preference for the summer and why is it your favorite look to rock? Sound off in the comment section!

Paula's Post Baby Gigs

Paula Patton is ready to try her hand at television. She is in negotiations to play the new ADA on Law and Order :Special Victims Unit. This would make the umpteenth time they have recast the part.
Nonetheless I would like to see Paula stick to movies. She was terrific as the teacher who befriends Precious in the movie of the same name and as the gold digger Morgan in Just Wright (which inexplicably flopped at the box office).
Other projects on tap: This Wednesday, where Paula will play a "pimpstress" which sounds promising, and the romantic comedy Jumping the Broom.

Info on Vanessa's Housewife Character

I was so happy to learn a few weeks back that Vanessa L. Williams would be joining the prime time hit Desperate Housewives. After watching her for the past few years play bitchy Wilhelmina on my much missed Ugly Betty, I knew V would bring some extra spice to the aging suburban dramedy.
Here's the deets: Vanessa's character Renee Filmore -Jones was Lynette's college rival. She moves to Wisteria Lane, married w/ no kids, and from what I've read, time has not healed all wounds between the two ladies.
I just hate that Blair Underwood has been cast on another show. He would've been perfect as Renee's hunky husband :)

Gabrielle Joins Army Wives Spinoff

Gabrielle Union has not had much luck in the t v series department. Her latest, Flash Forward was cancelled after one season on ABC, but there is some good news on the horizon. The hit Lifetime show Army Wives will be spinning off a series based around the Pamela Moran character, and Gabby has been tapped to be a co star. The only details I have is that she will be playing an Atlanta police officer. I will post more info as it becomes available.
Since I am a huge fan of Army Wives, I am sure this show will have sharp writing along with a great ensemble which makes AW such a ratings powerhouse for the basic cable network.

Halle's Fragrance Takeover Continues

Halle Berry has made a name for herself as a fragrance maven. In August she plans to expand her line even further by releasing Reveal, her latest. Halle states that the scent will be floral, and the commercials for the fragrance will feature her speaking directly to the viewer .

I am happy that Halle is expanding her brand, but I want to see her on the big screen again in a starring role where she isn't a mutant. I actually liked Monster's Ball ( unlike most who viewed it as a slap in the face of black womanhood)and wanted to see more dramatic fare from her . The last movie of hers I enjoyed was Things We Lost In the Fire pre Nahla. Perfect Stranger was a mess with a genius ending, but Halle needs to show the world again how powerful she can be in a feature film where it's not all about her gorgeous looks! Frankie and Alice, a movie that has yet to see a release date has her portraying a woman with multiple personality disorder. It also features Chandra Wilson and Phylicia Rashad. The supporting cast alone is enough to peak interest, so what's the hold up studio?

Until then I will be looking forward to her latest perfume which comes out in August!
