The Return of Making the Flop


Well if you were like me the return of MTV's Making the Band snuck up and premeired and you were none the wisest. The only reason that I knew it was even coming on soon was the coverage of one of my favorite celebrities, Sean John Combs throwing a chair at choreogapher Laurie Ann. (did she not turn it in that blue unitard and fishnets... OW!)

Well a couple days late, courtesy of Comcast DVR, I caught the first show and the prevelance of mediorce talent often displayed on this and other reality shows. Unlike some of my friends the show is exactly what I expected. Hopefully none of these fellas actually think they are going to be the next New Edition... i mean I really hope they don't think this show is even about them and their struggles. This like any other Bad Boy venture is about Sean Combs. Yes the person whose only real hit in the past few years is a top selling fragrance but yet remains to stay relevant. (which is why I love him so much... dude is gifted)

Anyway watching these guys battle it out to be the next O Town or Danity Kane will at least give me something to watch during the summer reruns. And there are a few cuties that I wouldn't mind knowing more about (dude in the skully in the pic is ummm... ooo) And I will admit I am interested in knowing how long Chris, the dancer that can't sing to save his life, and the big boy, who had 2 grilled cheese sandwiches for breakfast, will last.

So Mondays at 10pm est, I will be watching Diddy's dream team which is comprised of New Edition's Michael Bivins, Grammy-winning producer Bryan Cox, R&B singer Joe, A&R manager how u doin Slam, vocal coach Ankh Ra and choreographer Laurie Ann Gibson, manager Johnny Wright, and singer/producer Mario Winans (where the hell you been), put together as the website says 'the perfect R&B boy band to follow in the footsteps of such legendary acts as The Temptations, Boyz II Men, New Edition and NSync.'

They will make a cd and evenutally fade into the background. I dont see much success coming out of this group.

I'm sure all of them realize that they're not going much farther from the show, but who knows maybe it'll be different this time, maybe they can take over from where B2K left off. If not, it looks like one ole butch queen party. They should bring back that house mother dude and then see what happens.

I just like to predict whose going home. I'm 98% sure...big boy, Chris the dancer( that boy really can't sing) and Dan the chubby white boy won't make it.

I watched this show for the first time this weekend. These boys were so dramatic. Sporadic eye candy was its only saving grace.

Ahh - Laurie Ann did it - yes...she did it! In any event, I love the show too. But what you said about Slam made me think of Wendy Williams...I miss her.

Are you saying Slam is cute and you would like to hollar at him or does he prefer men?
