On the Tube today: Sherri Shepard of The View


"On the tube today" Sherri Shepard of The View, started talking about the lack of black people on television still. She talked about how all our shows are getting cancelled and if Sondra Rhimes wasn't the creator & writer of Grey's Anatomy then we wouldn't see a black chief of staff on TV. But what was interesting to me is when Barbra Walters said that she checked and there is at least 1-2 blacks on 20 shows. I have a problem with that! I still don't think that's enough. It's getting back to the point where the only time you see shows with more than 2 blacks is on BET or TV-One. That's why I try to support Tyler Perry and his shows on TBS, because I feel that he is at least trying to open up doors for black actors.
After all these years we should be so much further than we are today!


Sherri also took the time to plug her new show on Lifetime. In this show she actually allows her husbands mistress and their love child to move in with her. This seems interesting, but how long will it last on TV.

Savvy Shoes: It's Time to Make Lemonade!


"It's time to make lemonade" is a slogan I adopted for myself many years ago. It's a spin off from the phrase "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade". It's my way of telling myself that when the world gives you something that's suppose to be sour or (negative) just put a little sugar in it and make it sweet (positive).So remember don't worry about "lemons" especially if lemon happens to be the color of a cute pair of shoes.

I love these sophisticated lemon slingback peep toe shoes by Oscar de la Renta. They are made in a soft satin fabric, accentuated with an origami flower on the toe, and a uniquely designed 4" cork screw heel.
This shoe retails for $665.00

Savvy Cuisine: How to Make a California Roll


I love eating sushi and maki rolls, so when I went to a Japanese restaurant the other day I watched them (like a hawk) make one of my California rolls. Right then and there I decided that I was going to try to make my own maki rolls again. I did try a few years ago (that lasted a hot minute) but I just couldn't get them to look appetizing. So I found this video and it looks pretty simple, so I'm going to try it. The way I look at it, I may save a little money in the long run. Then again, I know myself, after the first roll I'll be placing my order again.

Savvy Shoes: Fringe Benefits


I love these magenta suede peep toe pumps by Christian Louboutin (even though the shoes cost a mortgage payment). But what really stands out to me on this shoe is the "fringe" dangling from the ankle strap. It's very stylish and adds a little pizazz to this 4 7/10" shoe.
This pair retails for $1095.00 and is also available in black.
