Bravo's Top Chef Stirring...I Mean Swirling It Up In the Kitchen!

Oh goody!  I've been scanning all over the blogosphere to catch a microcosm of coverage on the semi-interracial lust couples on Bravo's Top Chef. 

Color me late to the party on this for I care not:

Ok first love story occured between Barbadian beauty Tamesha and hot-n-spicy Angelo.  Now before Tamesha got the ax, Angelo followed her around the house like a love-sick Chihuahua. 

Shamelessly whispering in her ear and professing his feelings for her, Angelo left the other contestants feeling a bit uneasy.  As on cue, the usual  suspects were straight hating and giving Sweet T plenty of advise. Recently, Tamesha has been quoted saying the two are "just friends" but we can dream can't we?

Next  up we have the storyline between Tiffany and Ed.  Don't quote me on this but I believe these two are also eleminated.  I'm currently trying to catch up on the shows via On Demand, and I'm about 2 episodes behind.  

For your reading pleasure, here's an interesting link about Ed and Tiffany after the jump...

Catch full episodes over at Bravo.

Viva la internet!

Def Leppard's Guitarist Swirls it Up On Wedding Day!

Love Bites? Well, not for Def Leppard lead guitarist Phil Collen. The British rocker married costume designer Helen L. Simmons on the beach at Florida's Ritz-Carlton, Palm Beach resort in a sunset ceremony Friday. "We've been looking for each other our entire lifetime," Collen tells PEOPLE. "To say we're ecstatic this day has finally come is putting it mildly. It could only be us for each other." People Magazine

A few reactions from some readers over at People Magazine (surprisingly most were positive):

From Mindy:
I've loved Def Leppard for over 25 years, but Phil is a skank. He is not blessed, he will not have a long and happy marriage. This is his third time, the last wife he cheated on and had two kids outside of the marriage. He makes it sound as though this is his first time finding the love of his life.

From Bev:
Congrats, Phil! I am a long time fan and wish you and your beautiful bride a very happy marriage!

From Pricilla:
Congratulations. Being married is wonderful when you get to enjoy a lifetime with the person you truly love.

From Deborah:
How long into the marriage is he going to cheat on her? He's a rich horny old man. He changes his girlfriends like people changes underwear.The people on here wishing him well must not know his track record very well.

From Facebook User (responding back to Deborah):
Gosh sound like one bitter old hag he 
dumped back in the 80's...he must have really broken your heart for you to be so angry...get over it already...Wish them joy and happiness...and life will work out for them as it is meant too...Stop being so angry and bitter...your life will be better for it!
LOL folks are a mess!

"Hipster" Dating In Brooklyn

Looking for love? Got five minutes and some Ray Ban wayfarers?  Speed dating, a party where groups of people have micro-dates over the course of an evening in a sort of amorous musical chairs is being rebranded as a younger, hipper alternative to online dating.  In Brooklyn's Williamsburg neighborhood, an event called "The Internet Killed Your Social Skills" is drawing crowds every first Thursday of the month, filling a bar with a sea of 20-somethings in fedoras.  Julia Segal, 25, founded the event, nicknamed "hipster speed dating," as a way to polish up the dating skills that online dating and social networking sites, such as Facebook, have helped to obliterate.  Since it began six months ago, the event has gained enough momentum to warrant a second night. Soon hipster speed dating will come to nearby Park Slope- Ryan McClendon

Park Slope…really? I thought Park Slope was filled with pretentious married yuppies with children.  Who knew?

Can We Please Let It Go?

So I was invited to an interracial get together a few days ago.  I had an amazing time- great food, great wine, and interesting people. There were men from all walks of life: white collar, blue collar, computer analysis, teachers, and entrepreneurs.  There were various races present too: Caucasians, African-Americans, Asians, and Haitians just to name a few.   

But here lies the issue:

At one point during the evening, a young black woman leans over to me and whispers, “I always wanted to know why black men came to parties like this.” Then she glared over to the two black men having a lively conversation with three white women over glasses of wine.   I looked over at her and said “I’m hoping they’re here for the same reason you are…to meet people and fun.”  

Suddenly she snapped out of her fog like daze and said, “Um what I’m saying is, I’ve dated white men before…my last boyfriend was white, but like, since I’ve moved here, black men, don’t really seem interested.”  Now keep in mind there was a bi-racial man (Asian/Black) sitting next to her and heard our conversation.  He interrupts her and asks, “Then why do you care what black men are doing?”  So she spends the next 10 minutes trying to back-pedal her way out of the question.  However “bi-racial guy” still tries to flirt with her (hard too) but her head was still stuck on the “brothas” at the party-and it showed too!

Just to be fair, black women aren’t the only ones who just can’t let it go and move on.  I came across a very impressive website dedicated to Asian men and the women who love them.  It’s been around for about four or five years now.  There are active forums, galleries, and members can create individual blogs.  If you are in a relationship with an Asian man, there’s a support system in place where you can discuss cultural and relationship issues.  I believe the main purpose of the site is to reinforce positivity as well as uplift Asian men.  A concept I believe many would agree that’s needed in the Asian community.  

However, many of the Asian men spend most of their time on the site blogging about …wait for it…Asian women!  Topics like, “why are Asian women dating white men”, “we love our Asian beautiful women”,  “why are Asian women dating/marrying out” are blogged and discussed quite often. 

Of course the writers and forum members are met with the usual “you guys are so sexy there are plenty of women who love you and find you beautiful and yada, yada, yada.  In one of the forums there was even some talk about hooking up with white women just to get back at Asian women.  For a minute I thought I was on Black Voices or the Young Black and Fabulous site.  The similarities were uncanny.  How creepy is that?

At first I thought about joining but I asked myself why? Instead I exited the site thinking to myself, “Wow, is this how non-black men feel when they hear black women spouting off about black love?”

I'm Out!

When Interracial Dating Goes Wrong: O.J. Simpson Set to Marry Pen Pal

The actor has fallen in love over a series of letters that the duo exchanged with each other and he has proposed to her for marriage, she will now be his third wife.  The pen pal called Anna is a young blonde; she had sent her picture to Simpson who flipped after looking at the picture and is believed to be a spitting image of his late wife Nicole. The former football star had been acquitted of her murder in 1995.  

Simpson is currently serving jail time at Nevada’s Lovelock Correctional Centre for armed robbery case in Los Angeles- Entertainment Biz


Orenthal just can't seem to stay out of the spotlight can he?  I hope Blondie leaves a trail of breadcrumbs leading to the chapel... 

That is all.

Dating Expert Says Black Women and Asian Men Make Beautiful Couples

African American women sometimes feel they are under attack from a constant stream of negative information from the media. ABC News and “Nightline” both recently featured long segments dedicated to the problems black women face finding suitable mates. And with many African American men struggling with low graduation rates and high incarceration, those problems don’t seem to be going away.  

Many black women have taken to dating outside their race and are looking at white, Latino and Asian men — and that is good thing according to dating expert JT “The Asian Playboy” Tran.  Tran says that African American women and Asian men have a lot in common, because they are often avoided by members of their own race. He urges both groups to open their dating horizons.
