The Gossip Game "Ratchet to Ratchet" Review
“Ratchet to Ratchet,” is essentially part two of “Trading in the Gossip Game.” Picking rup where the last episode ended in the middle of the “Ms. Drama” and Viv war of words. These two both talk a good game but punches are never thrown. Later in the episode when they went back and forth again Viv started to take off her earrings and “Ms. Drama” did like everyone else who was watching this episode and just sat there. I want to believe “Ms. Drama” continuing sitting because she knew Viv wasn’t going to do anything, but I know its because “Ms. Drama” is all talk.
“Ms. Drama” is delusional. Seriously, whenever someone tries to talk some sense into her she ignores them completely. Sharon tried and failed, Kim O. tried and failed and even her good friend “Jasfly,” who flat out told “Ms. Drama” that she doesn’t listen, had to abruptly end their lunch date because “Ms. Drama” was being irrational. “Ms. Drama” is prototypical hypocrite, she can’t see her own hypocrisy or in this matter her own “ratchetness.” As stated by “Jasfly,” “Ms. Drama” doesn’t take responsibility for her role in the now two confrontations the she and Viv have had.
Viv is too sensitive when it comes to “Ms. Drama” or who she called “Muttley.” Muttley is a Hanna-Barbera character who first appeared in Wacky Races in 1968, sorry Viv. Viv didn’t want to give the year of the appearance of Muttley because that would hint at her age. Um Viv no one is going to mistake you for a spring chicken. Her husband “Kraze,” gives her great advice on how to handle the situation, but that went out the window the next time her and “Ms. Drama” got together. She was in “Viv Mode” and saw all red!
The Cult that is Hot 97 added a new chapter when Eebro, who is K. Foxx’s boss, accused on air that K. Foxx has seen all the rappers’ johnsons’ and in fact that’s how she got her job. Obviously K. Foxx was offended by the statement and was upset that there isn’t another person she can talk to about her boss but her boss, I guess Hot 97 doesn’t have an human relations department. Nonetheless, this confrontation started hot but quickly fizzled and all was well in the land of Hot 97 again.
Two episodes in and “The Gossip Game” doesn’t really have any other storylines when it comes to everyone else on the show. Kim O. is still trying to portray women in hip hop better, “Jasfly” is still working on her “Power vs Hot” article and that’s about it. Sharon Carpenter being set up on blind dates isn’t going to work unless “The Gossip Game” is her backdoor pilot to her own “Flavor of Love” type spin off. The preview of the next episode doesn’t seem likes its going to deviate from the formula, but hopefully someone or something throws us a curveball, because with eight more episodes to go this could get stale pretty quickly.
