The ratings are high than ever for the RHOA. Who wouldn’t want to see black women in ball gowns brawling? I mean that’s good television. Last night we witnessed Kenya Moore being the antagonizing witch that she portrays. That is her role on the show. Porsha Stewart is the “dumb” deer in the headlights who is evolving into an opinionated member of the hive. Last night Stewart got sick of Moore and of course she got in her face and dragged her to the floor, and everyone on set was surprised? Please give me a break. Nobody was surprised. The host Andy Cohen dismissed Stewart from the set, and on Part 2 of the debacle next week Cohen says with a straight face that physical violence is not condoned, and won’t be tolerated, but if he and Bravo actually believed that would they have shown the footage? No they are all thrilled. Ratings are at an all time high and that’s the bottomline. It is about the dollar. Over the next two weeks the rest of the housewives and the wanabee housewives will snipe and insult each other and when the dust clears Bravo will decide who will be coming back next season. Last night Stewart either assured she will be on next week or she eliminated herself from the hive, but if they let her go please don’t pretend it was the fight that caused her to be eliminated from the show because Bravo will simply be lying. Cohen stoked the flame last night and watched the house go up in flames and that’s good television to some.

Integrity-the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness.
Integrity has become as common as the sight of a unicorn. Our society rewards success at any cost. We are the cheerleaders for the shortcut. We applaud the phrase “by any means necessary”. We regard second place as the first loser. We are consumed with the results, and we pay little or no attention to the journey. We are slaves to the bottomline. So when we see someone with a true sense of integrity we are in awe. Yesterday I watched someone truly act out of a sense of integrity. He said “you can never go wrong doing the right thing.” His decison will impact his bottomline, but he had a sense of peace from knowing he did the right thing and in my eyes it was not only the right thing it was actually a thing of beauty.

Yesterday old news surfaced regarding Al Sharpton. Sharpton was an FBI informant back in the eigthies. He actually wore a wire and taped his conversations with some mob heavyweights. He says that he was dealing with corruption in the music business. Since the eighties Sharpton has turned his life around and now he is a respected member of the media community. He is still reviled by some but is this type of journalism fair? If we are the land of second chances are we willing to accept the Sharpton of today or do we vilify him for his behavior over 30 years ago? Share your thoughts.
Last week we heard alot of stupidity spewed over the radion. Boomer Esiason questioned a New Met’s decision to be with his wife at the birth of their first child. He subscribed to the team comes first philosopy. He went as far as to say his wife should have had a scheduled C-section prior to Opening Day. Sadly he must not have know that a C-section is major surgery, but at least he has apologized for his loose talk. Deion Sanders whiled appearing on the Tom Joyner Morning Show said that a future NFL prospect had “ghetto tendencies”. He went on to say that he meant the player was showing swagger and bravado, but when Twitter went wild on Sanders he denied saying it, but the transcript of the show proved he made the statment. He is just another loose talker, but let’s say a white former NFL great like Brett Favre made the “ghetto tendencies” remark. MSNBC would blow a gasket. they would be calling for his head. Sanders has nothing to worry about he is a black man making an offensive statement but he gets a pass and that’s the problem.
