Here’s what else is happening…
“Blood, Sweat & Heels” is really trying a lot of folks’ patience. Members of Black Twitter have complained that the show seems to focus more on the six cast members’ social lives and inner friction instead of the inner-workings of their careers. Even though Sunday’s episode took a closer look at their professional lives, we also watched two of them–Mica Hughes and Melyssa Ford–completely show their asses. Completely. Thus undoubtedly adding to the exisiting drama. Yeah, Mica and Melyssa got wasted and exhibited truly uncool behavior during their “girl” and fellow cast member Geneva S. Thomas’ work-related social gathering. I tried to go easy on these two, but Black Twitter refused. The drunk friends engaged in couch dancing, spread-eagle splits and loud talking. Mind you, Geneva’s boss, Uptown magazine CEO Len Burnett, was there and the two introduced themselves to him, with Mica hoping to get work. Yep, Geneva’s wish that they would “drink bleach and die” is harsh but understandable. No question harsh words will be exchanged over this next week. In other Geneva news, she and cast mate Demetria Lucas kissed and made up during a very mature conversation about the former’s dismay about the latter writing a blog post about a discussion all of the cast members were engaged in (no names were mentioned). Their meeting took place after the girls confronted Demetria ambush-style during Mica’s dinner party about writing the piece.  I’m sure Demetria’s calm, cool and collected approach with Geneva gained her a new crop of social media followers. Until next time …
