MCM: Riverdale’s Charles Melton

Do you know what day it is????? It’s Man Crush Monday and this one is long deserved. IScreenshot_20190311-152729 should have featured this guy right after Cole Sprouse. Today, I am rewriting my wrongs. He needs to know that I see him. I’ve always seen him, and if one day we cross paths the answer is yes. Yes, I will be Mrs. Charles Melton. Hey Playlisters! I binged watched a little of Riverdale this weekend. I wasn’t able to even make a dent because duty calls. I was able to watch 2 episodes and I had to ask myself. Well, honestly I asked Veronica but we all know she can’t hear me. I acknowledge that it is more the writer’s fault because she isn’t real. But, I have to know, Veronica how do you work around Reggie and not want to jump his bones? It boggles me. So, I’ll ask the actress that plays Veronica, Camila Mendes. Camila, how do you work around your boyfriend and not want to abandon the storyline. Camila, you’ve made a stellar choice. If you would have dated Archie in real life, then I would have to take you off of my faves list.

What can I say? Charles Melton is HOTT. Riverdale, if the only reason you hired him is Screenshot_20190311-152753eye candy then Camila and I thank you. I mean, yes. He is a great actor, but besides that…he’s hot. Sorry to go into a rabbit hole right now, but Veronica…girl. Reggie is 6 feet. Archie is only 5’11, and he wines a lot. Your dad wants to kill him. Reggie is the obvious choice. Again, I get it…the writers. I know. Anywho this leads me back on track with what I was saying. Charles Melton is in the 6-foot club.  Again Camila, excellent choice. That’s why I like her. She makes excellent choices.

Ok back to his talent. He will be in a few upcoming projects. The Sun Is Also a Star co-starring another MIP fave, Yara Shahidi. It is in theaters in May 2019. He will also be in the highly anticipated Bad Boys for Life with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence; set to be in theaters 2020. I’m glad he’s making great career moves because I’ll be able to look at him longer. So other than he’s talented, tall and hott that’s it for your MCM.

Molly from Insecure,…Girl. ***Spoiler Alert***

So, I love Insecure on HBO. I stan it. Well, not literally but I definitely wait all week for it. I was actually watching when it was Awkward Black Girl on youtube from the first episode. So, my fandom runs super deep. The characters have changed a lot, with some cameos from the original cast. However, it remains centered on Issa’s character.  I think besides Issa, my favorite character is Kelly whose real name is Natasha Rothwell. She’s also a writer on the show. Which makes total sense, because she is hilarious.  We didn’t come to talk about Kelly (I’ll save her for a later post), we came to talk about Molly(Yvonne Orji). I don’t usually write recaps, reviews or talk about shows on here but Molly. Girl. You brought me out of my dark blogger’s cave.

Molly. She frustrated me so bad, I had to make her name a one-word sentence. I judged her super hard being in a friend’s with benefits relationship with her open marriage friend. I didn’t say anything though. I just looked the other way. It’s just Molly being Molly. When Andrew came along on this season, I prayed she wouldn’t screw it up. One, he seemed like a nice guy. She’s really good at messing up with nice guys. Secondly, the Interracial community needed this. Thirdly, I didn’t want her to be the professional black woman who couldn’t be happy with a man. We had enough of that with Being Mary Jane (Oh Mary Jane is way worse than Molly, btw). You know what, her screwing things up with Andrew isn’t the only thing I’m side eyeing her for. I kind of saw that coming because let’s face it. It’s Molly. She also stated she wanted a black guy (hey no judgment on that) so I didn’t really see the writers letting this work out anyway. I actually think that they only incorporated Andrew because of Issa Rae’s book, The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl. If you are not privy, there was a lot of hoopla about Issa saying Black women need to date Asian men. It was some other things stated that some people found offensive. Blah Blah Blah. Anywho, I think that was a way to subtly defend herself. Enough with real life.  We’re talking about the fictional characters we are all friends with in our heads, lol.

*****Spoiler Alert*****

Molly went on a second date with Andrew the following day because she had to cut their first date short. She was working on a project with her co-worker (we’ll get to that later. It ties in with her shittiness) and she needed to finish work. They go on the date, and they are joking around with each other (I would like to insert that this date felt awkward from jump…but whatever).  Molly says to Andrew, “Say’s the guy who kissed his homeboy’s girl.”(or something to that effect). He say’s, “Say’s the girl who slept with her married friend”. Feel free to comment the exact words. Anyway, Molly catches a BIG TIME attitude with Andrew and shoots back, “You don’t know the situation.“. She then tells him she’s ready to go and leaves him in the bar/restaurant. Ok, this part alone made me give Molly stabby eyes. She felt like her comment was totally ok to bring up. It was fine that she dug up something he told her to use as a joke. Because men are shitty, I can say what I want. When he brings up something shitty she has done, she gets mad. He’s now at fault. He made a bad joke. I’m upset. How dare he. That’s basically her attitude. Why was she able to say something to him that could be taken as offensive, but he can’t. She can dish it, but she can’t take it. She villanized him and used the “I’m looking out for me” motto over something she created. Molly creates a lot of her own messes. Personally and professionally. She gets in her own way. So far, she appears to be a good friend. She hasn’t messed up in that way at all…yet. When it comes to other people she only cares about her career. She can’t see how her actions lead her to these events. I think she’s terminally blind to it. It’s going to take her falling out with someone important to her. More than likely a friend, for her to realize she is in her own way. I think she needs to have a sit down with her therapist.

Her professional screw up is when she gave that presentation while her partner was away. He was wrong for micromanaging her. It’s annoying to have someone breathing down your neck while you’re trying to do your job. It’s frustrating when a difference in style becomes an error because it’s not how they would do it. I get it. But, to give a presentation that you both were working on alone. That’s wrong. You are essentially taking credit or the bulk of the glory for a project. You had a team member, and you are being a bad team member. That’s something that people who only look out for themselves do. That is also something that makes you not only a bad team member at work but in life. You can’t be a good partner to anyone when you only look out for number 1. Being a good teammate means helping someone up when they fall and working together. Even when it means you will have to share the credit with someone you aren’t necessarily excited about. Speak up for yourself, but that doesn’t mean stabbing someone in the back. I sort of want to Tyra Banks yell at her, because “I’ve never in my life yelled at a girl like this!”. Get it together Molly, “When my mother raises her voice at me like this, it’s because she loves me! I was rooting for you! We were all rooting for you!”. That’s a warning girl. Pull your life together and see your therapist. Figure out why you’re smiling in the wife’s face at the baby shower like you weren’t sleeping with her husband. It is not only his fault. He told you he was in an open relationship with his wife. It is not only his fault that he laid down with you. You let him willingly. You knew he was married. You knew his situation up front. Let’s stop this, “Everyone does Molly wrong. Everyone is mean to me garbage.”.  You’re better than this girl.

Ok, rant over. If you disagree sound off in the comments. If you agree, sound off in the comments. If you want to comment, sound off in the comments. Hey, just comment, lol.

Why there is no MCM this week

Hey Playlisters, I’ve been floating the idea for a while to have a Zaddy of the Week that isn’t a celebrity (as of yet, lol). Every week I feature someone who is known in the social/media sphere. This week, I wanted to find a guy who is a little less known. If you know of someone or if you yourself would like to be featured please email me at pinkhairblogger@gmail.com or shoot me a DM via Instagram or our facebook page. In the email tell me a little about yourself (first name, social media, age, schooling, job, hobbies, past and or current charities, relationship status and any additional info you would like to include). I really will like to make this a thing so feel free to reblog, repost, share this blog. If you submit and you’re not chosen this week there is still a possibility that you are featured for an upcoming blog. I would really like to make this a thing on the blog. I took a slight gamble by not featuring anyone for MCM since that’s sort of my thing.  I’m really excited to hear from you guys! As always thank you for supporting the blog and don’t forget to check us out on social media! Besos!

Grown-ish did an episode about dating as black women and you need to watch

Grown-ish, the Freeform spinoff to the ABC hit series Blackish starring Yara Shahidi did an Episode about Black Women and dating.Screenshot_20180308-002037 It perfectly summed up the situation. The episode entitled, It’s Hard Out Here for a Pimp, guest starring the very very yummy Diggy Simmons touched on something that has been a bit of a hot topic in the bwxm/ambw community. That would be the infamous dating hierarchy,  research that was put out by OkCupid about dating trends. Placing White and Asian females toward the top as the most desired, and Black women and Asian men at the bottom. Although the series on slightly touched on Asian men, it did go into full detail concerning Black women.

The episode hit all the bases as quickly as possible in its short 30 minutes (plus commercials) ranging from the angry Black woman who has an attitudediggy and is difficult to deal with, colorism in dating and the double standard of interracial dating preferences of Black women versus Black Men. I felt this episode is what we needed to continue the conversation of Black women’s place in the dating world. I don’t want to go into too much detail and give the episode away, but I strongly suggest you take a look at it. As a bonus, you will be heavily rewarded with more than generous camera time of Diggy Simmons. Seriously, he’s going to have to be Zaddy of the week because he is sexy.
