Okay, so if you have no clue about the Rob and Chyna fiasco you must have a very important life. Well guess what, some of us don't, well we do, but this episode of juiciness is better than any Netflix show that is being scripted by talented writers or Shonda Rhimes imagination.
The real life, real time of watching and waiting while drama implodes and explodes has given many of us a reason to ditch our mundane problems to forecast judgment in the Rob Loves Chyna ratchetrama series. Yes, this gives us life because unlike reading television show reviews or waiting for our friends to give us the scoop - this shit is going down in front of our eyes with a ringside seat.
As someone who loves social media, I couldn't help noticing how the reactions towards the drama unfolded on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. The firestorm of automatic slugs happened first on Instagram. Now I am into Instagram but not like you would think. Hell, check out my page and you can see for yourself. However, in a ploy to break a record in giving the most Facebook love reactions, I decided to befriend a lot of beautiful makeup driven divas to my timeline, and it was through them that I witnessed the realness of Rob Kardashian.
Many of the ladies were supportive of Rob and blamed Chyna for messing up a good thing due his genuine love for her which makes him a perfect ten in many women eyes (I'm sure being a Kardashian doesn't hurt either). But Rob's narration of being heartbroken quickly spiraled into an abyss as he unfortunately came across as a bitter but funny clapbacking baby daddy. He gave us pictures, stories and scandal even Olivia Pope would have hell diverting (did he say TI and Tiny paid for Chyna's box?!?!). YES, this shit is messier than eating a slab of saucy ribs.
But it is the witty Twitter folks who cleverly mixed in creative gifs that made this soap opera solid gold. The comments gave me hyena laughter. Snoop's antecedent of Rob being a sucker vibrated my funny bone and the fact that he resembled my messy aunt who loves slaying her truth had me in tears. This dramamedy is the entertainment we need to feel a little bit better about our current situation. Finally something not presidential but more Hip Hop and Hoochieish but real (thanks Dette for that awesome phrase) to ease our hardship for a day. After all, it's not every day a black woman get over on a Kardashian.
There were a couple great parts for me: understanding why folks questioning Rob's need not to have surgery when he paid for Chyna's, Rob naively believing his love could conquer Chyna, his announcement as being his wife certified drug dealer but couldn't keep her loyal, and most importantly his fabulous skills in building up publicity for Chyna and her new boo. Meanwhile, Chyna ate up the attention faster than Kylie can appropriate black culture. I have to admit he threw a blanket of shade when he said Chyna was mad that his little sister took her man. I hollered.
YAS!! The drama is solid gold, I give it 4 stars, two thumbs up, and can you believe it was for free! This rachetragedy is better than watching The Transformers at the movies (spare your coins and 3 hours and thank me later). Rob K gave the world a break by entertaining us for 3 hours, across 2 social networks, with nudes, costly robes, drugs, babies, money, TI and Tiny, and more for free.
The only thing I'm waiting for is 45 to tweet how the Kardashians' are making America great again by being rating machines. Rob got me sipping on lemonade tea instead of recapping the live anniversary of slain unarmed POC and halfway forgetting Trump's game of Russian roulette with our democracy. In the voice of my great hellish Christian friend, "Won't the Kardashians do it!"
By the way - who side are you on?
No one's I am just taking in all the sauce and tea
Rob because he was blindsided by love
Chyna because she finally got over on a Kardashian
