The Gossip Game "Steppin Out" Review
Ms. Drama Queen
Kino, Kim O’s husband demands a threesome. Stating that she promised him that he will receive a threesome as well as anal sex, which he affectionately refers to as “dookie love,” after marriage. Though the threesome is suppose to happened at the 10 year mark which there are not at yet. Kino has no problem bringing up this threesome idea in front of Viv and her husband on their double date. I did find it amusing that when this notion of a threesome was first brought up, Kim tried to shush Kino. It may have been because of they were in public, but I want to believe that it was Kim’s way of reminding Kino that they are on reality tv and this is a private matter.
After Sharon is stood up on a first date, she interviews Tianna Wallace, the late Christopher Wallace’s aka Notorious B.I.G daughter. Tianna has only done two other interviews, one with XXL magazine and the other was with Hot 97’s K. Foxx. K. Foxx deems the interview that Sharon did as mediocre , and feels as if Sharon doesn’t know her place in the industry. Couple that with the fact K. Foxx just got a job with Extra, a company where Sharon had an interview but didn’t get the job claiming the reason was because Extra already had an English personality. There was a lot of undertones between these two. Jealousy is coming from Sharon, who prides herself as a serious journalist, and is now wondering how a “radio DJ” has a more prominent position than she does.
Last week I noted that “Ms. Drama” is delusional, and this week she played the role. A series of non apologies, a photoshoot fit for an R&B diva who’s in the twilight of her career, and a rebranding party. Years without sexual contact may be to blame for “Ms. Drama’s” mindstate but that would be putting a negative label on all the good people who are virgins or practicing celibacy. “Ms Drama” performs a dramatic monologue that was incoherent and all over the place, the twirl at the end didn’t help.
“Steppin Out” was hit or miss. The Kim O threesome situation was made bigger than what it was, and in the end turned out to be a non issue. I’m excited to see where this K. Foxx/Sharon Carpenter rivalry is heading. And I hope this is just the tip of the iceberg that is “Ms. Drama” and “Jasfly” friendship turned frenemy. "Frenemy" is a portmanteau of "friend" and "enemy" that can refer to either an enemy pretending to be your friend or someone who really is your friend but is also a rival (from wikipedia). All that being said, it still feels that “The Gossip Game” is missing something, and I have no idea what that something is. I just hope the producers do and put it in the remaining seven episodes.
