Everyday is Mothers Day Gift Ideas: TV Drama & Book Reviews

The Royal tour continues and now we are going from tea sets to books. On blog, I’ve talked about so many books and television shows, but out of all the entertainments posts that I’ve written, Victoria consistently makes me smile. If you’ve been following my blog, you would have heard me talk about the new season of Victoria and the novel, but sadly I didn’t have the book at the time. I did promise to read it and feature it on my blog and that day is here! Special thanks to St. Martins Press for sending me the book.

I got the book and let me tell you how descriptive and the elegance in the vocabulary within every dialogue was unbelievable. Daisy Goodwin accurately matched the characters in the mini-series based on the novel and I must admit just like the show, the book left me wanting more. Below is a video of me talking about the novel and other books that Daisy Goodwin wrote. Keep your fingers that I get a chance to read “The American Heiress & The Fortune Hunter also by Daisy Goodwin.

My Sweet Audrina: Movie Review

The Lifetime network has once again surprised me with their new movies. One, in particular, is the latest plot twisting thriller taken from the novel by V. C. Andrews, My Sweet Audrina. Initially, when I tuned in Saturday night, my expectations were sky high. Since the first four V.C. Andrews movies took social media by a storm with Flowers in the Attic.  Although, My Sweet Audrina is a completely different story with a troubling revelation.

The mystery of a grim family secret is intriguing. The plot is based on Audrina living in her family’s secluded mansion, and is kept alone and out of sight and is haunted by nightmares of her older sister, First Audrina, who was left for dead in the woods after an attack. As she begins to question her past and her disturbing dreams, the grim truth is slowly revealed.  The movie is starring India Eisley (as Audrina), James Tupper,  Seth Isaac Johnson, and Chronicles of Narnia star Willam Mosley.

Wow! that’s it I can’t tell you anymore, because I don’t know if you’ve watched it yet. Let’s just say the movie threw me for a loop and kept my attention, which is very hard to do.

The Wrestle Mania Is Over For This Hulkamaniac

The hall of fame wrestling legend Hulk Hogan  has body slammed himself into a whole lot of trouble. According to the National Enquirer, Hogan made an offensive remark concerning his daughter sleeping with a African American man. Pardon the language According to sources, he said: “I mean, I’d rather if she was going to f*ck some n*gger, I’d rather have her marry an 8-foot-tall n*gger worth a hundred million dollars! Like a basketball player!

“I guess we’re all a little racist. Fucking n*gger.”

Well that did not sit well with a lot of wrestling fans, especially the WWE. According to the National Enquirer, It has been reported that the WWE has acted swiftly in the wake of The National ENQUIRER’s explosive report – FIRING Hulk Hogan! In a statement to The ENQUIRER, The WWE said: “WWE terminated its contract with Terry Bollea (aka Hulk Hogan). WWE is committed to embracing and celebrating individuals from all backgrounds as demonstrated by the diversity of our employees, performers and fans worldwide.”

Hulk Hogan has been captured on tape spewing foul-mouthed racial slurs – including the N-word.

This is a very sad day for the WWE universe and to all of the Hulamaniacs.
