To Be A Contestant, You Must First Want to Compete…

I’m not sure if this has happened to you, but have you ever found yourself as a contestant on a show you never signed up to be on? I know this sounds weird but bear with me.

In life there are people who absolutely love to star in dramatic films. Don’t get me wrong these people are great. They have even won academy awards, Oscars you name it. If you are trying to make it big, these are the people who will make a name for you in the ‘biz”.

However, if you are anything like me, “show biz” does not really interest you. You won’t find me auditioning for “The Real World”, “Desperate Housewives”, “Bad Girls Club” etc. Will I watch these shows from time to time? Of course. But I’m not trying to co-star in any of them. I’m not looking for a competition and I am definitely not trying to be the next “New York”.

With that said why is it that people are hell-bent in making others co-stars in their drama filled lives? Did I ask to be on “The Love of Ray J”? Of course not. I do not recall signing up. So how did I get on the season finale? I think the more alarming question is why did the “winner” put me in the script?

It’s quite perplexing. I know that in order for these shows to get ratings, the plots have to be out of this world, they have to be low down and dirty, full of back stabbing and fakery. But dude, you skipped a whole line of auditioners to choose me? I mean, its crazy when one day you’re sitting home flipping through the channels, to then stumble across your image in a reality t.v. show. If that’s not crazy I don’t know what is.

You all know I am all about education. So, Beware of the fake ones, and just sip your champagne with the real ones. How will you know who is real you ask? It is hard to tell now a days. But basically it is the ones who are NOT smiling in your face while holding a knife behind their backs. The ones who do NOT say one thing and do another. The ones who do NOT lie in your face for no reason.

In all honesty, we have all had a fake moment. We may have had several. No one is perfect. However basking in your fakeness is no bueno. Being arrogant is definitely NOT a good look. So, if that’s you, I would suggest you do like Jay-Z and change clothes. Perhaps humility would be a better look.

Any who, you know what I always say. If you think this blog is about you, it probably is. Leave the script writing to someone else and sit back and listen. You may actually learn something. Peace, love, and chicken grease.
