Provoking Thoughts: VH1’s ‘Single Ladies’ Tackles Marriage/Kids

Given how deliciously atrocious the acting it, I’ve found myself absolutely sucked into the VH1 scripted TV show, Single Ladies. If you follow me on Twitter you already know how obsessed I am as I “live tweet” every episode each week. (Sorry lol)

I usually find that I identify with Val, the fabulous Stacey Dash’s character. She’s conservative when it comes to dating, and a hopeless romantic. She wants to be swept off her feet by Prince Charming and will accept nothing less than that.

Well, this season, she started dating an older man who pretty much appears perfect. The young’uns on Twitter freaked out on this as if Stacey is a spring chicken. She’s in her mid-40s, folks! And nobody was all “ew, Demi Moore is so old & gross. Why is Ashton with her?” Some of these young’uns think 30 is old, so I dismiss that group and their corresponding opinions.

ANYWAY… aside from being loaded, he’s a southern gentleman who is down to take things slow and treats Val like a princess. The problem lies after Jerry catches Val trying on a wedding dress for a friend. He saw how her eyes lit up and realizes he needs to discuss “marriage” with her. Val is excited, but Jerry aint bringin’ nuttin’ but bad news, sistagirl!

I Love the New Millenium

Really VH1?

You couldn’t wait until the 1st decade was in the books to roll this out?

I’m not going to lie. I loved me some “I Love the 70s” as well as the 80s and 90s version of the weeklong special. And while I enjoyed the 90s the most (because I was old enough to remember everything they talked about), I still thought they made it too soon.

So now, they’re airing “I Love the New Millenium” prematurely. We aren’t even through 2009. Stupid move, IMO.

Way to jump the gun, VH1.
