Venus. The greatest highlight of the weekend.

I watched the last show of Venus; the play brought by The Actors Workshop Beirut and directed by a brilliant man called Jacques Maroun. This is Maroun’s third play after Reasons to be Pretty and Ka3eb 3aleh.

Venus stars Rita Hayek and Badih Bou Charkra, and Sunday was its 64th show – a great run!

I only wish that I have watched it before so that I can drag you all and force you to watch it. Then, you would refer to this play as the best 2 hours of your life; okay fine your week.

In case you missed it, I have top lined the best moments for me.

  1. Rita Hayek. I am starting with the best thing about the play. And it wouldn’t be enough to dedicate 10 bullet points to explain how good this actress is. Breathtaking honestly. Pretty, genuine, multi-talented, charismatic and under-celebrated. By far the best in town.

  1. Okay now that I have relaxed and can move on from Rita. I absolutely loved the stage and the set-up. And how the accessories keep coming into the scenes without you noticing their source and without any of the actors leaving stage for a second.
  1. How you don’t want it to end. And 2 hours pass so fast. You want to watch it over and over again. You keep hoping the end was only an intermission.
  1. How you watch an hour and a half of the play, and think that Rita is so much better than Badih. Compared to her, he seems okay. And then right there towards the last half an hour when you least expect it, he proves to you why he was chosen for this part and how amazing he is. Because 1 min was enough to turn everything around.

Haifa Wehbe, taking trash and prostitution globally.

I fought it hard. But then couldn’t anymore. I did it. I watched the new Haifa Video Clip, Breathing you In. I had a few Xanax-es, drank a few coffee cups trying to avoid it. But it wasn’t doing any good. I clicked play.

And then all hell broke loose.

The clip starts with a scene from Gravity and you keep waiting for Sandra or George to show up. But then you get Casper and Haifa!

You then go back in time to see Casper’s abs, because why not. That brings so much added value.

Then she starts to sing! And your ears bleed.

Because I am breathing you in, you get me started when you begin. Deep huh?

What follows is this:

1. A silly and cliché beat, that you think you have heard back in the 90s.

2. Some singing that you cannot understand because of her bad English accent and the amount of voice filtering to hide the fact that she cannot sing.

3. Haifa making her usual sex faces. Because this sells.

4. Some terrible dance moves

5. Haifa flying into space wearing a modern type furniture item upside down.

6. The moment where you can see Haifa’s vgg.

7. That moment when she travels to space to touch the hand of her lover. How romantic.

8. That ugly red hair and old fashioned make-up. Someone should tell her that this look is really becoming trashy and deja vu. Too Arabic and too common and the furthest away from class. haifa 222

9. The usual top view of Haifa chilling in a garden

10. How thankful we are that Haifa is now singing in English disregarding the fact that this country needs a good image and good credit. At a point she was a superstar and we disregarded that she couldn’t sing and used her body to entertain. It was her decision. But now that she has taken trash and prostitution globally because that is the only acceptable next step for artists with an added value.
What is her added value? – Showcasing another Lebanese girl, with minimum talent, respect and input trotting the globe and sharing her assets.

If you missed it and want a combination of being pissed off, having a laugh and puking a little bit. Here it is:

Dancing with the Stars Week 3. I wasn’t Impressed and this post is boring!

So, the third week of Dancing of the Stars is back, and there is a void. Wayna Jane?! Because quite frankly I didn’t feel like slapping anyone in the face after she left and MTV took that away from me.

So I have to deal with what I have left, and quite frankly it was average this time around.

Let me share with you the highlights, that I had to squeeze out of me:

1. Call me crazy, but there was a lot of nakedness on the show last night.

Amina   Chloe  Ibrahim 2

Dalida  Raed Rony

2. I really liked Carla’s dress, and her mistakes were brought down to a minimum last night. Good job for on a lot of the funny jokes. Bravo Carla.

3. I still have no idea who Reine Ashkar is, sorry! And Reine, that lying on the floor beginning of your Charleston wasn’t very flattering my friend. This program is G rated.

The Sisters. The Lebanese Kardashians. The Epitome of Silliness. The Reason You Want to Slit Your Wrists. #YouAreNotAlone

I don’t know how many brain cells I have, but I am sure that almost 100,000,000 brain cells have been killed yesterday. I did the mistake of watching The Sisters. Why? Because I was bored and I really had some time on my hands. We all heard so much about it and I couldn’t have missed it.

all

I find it really weird that it is timed so close to Women’s Day. How ironic that these women represent our society. 3 of the most self-centered, personality lacking, no-cultured, low IQ-ed, spoiled rich girls of the Lebanese community.

While women all over the world have struggled to make a place for themselves, to celebrate respect and women achievements, Alice, Nadine and Farah portray a version of women that wrecks all the efforts of great female figures. Sorry ‎Margaret Thatcher, ‎Malala Yousafzai, Audrey Hepburn, Benazir Bhutto, Maya Angelo, Bronte Sister, and the list goes on.

How are we supposed to be respected and appreciated while we see 3 plastic women, showered with money and free clothes (I didn’t know that) share with us their daily meaningless stupid lives. I don’t care whether they go to the gym, and how they fight and how they shop and takes photo-shoots.

But anyways, let’s meet the lovely cast:

  • Alice: the eldest sister, bossy and pushy and has this annoying way of speaking. Also scary on close-ups.

  • Nadine: Also self-centered and silly, but has a bit of sense of humor.

Dancing with the Stars Episode 2 Review. The drama continues. Carla still says the darnedest things!

I had to go out to a birthday celebration last night (Thank you Mavis, I enjoyed it), and was bombarded with messages and notes asking about my comments on Dancing with the Stars. So, I stayed up late last night to watch the re-run and give it to you. As usual the show didn’t disappoint me. The drama continued, and here are my highlights:

1. Kif we2feen sha3rato la mike Boladian? Ana baddi. Mike

2. Reine Ashkar, with a Samba that looked more like oriental dancing than anything else. Which reminds I don’t even know who she is. What does she do again?

3. Anthony and Chole’s beautiful dance.

4. Darren was even more handsome last night. Was it that bowtie? Or the slight tan? I have no idea. But that man is too cute. dareen 2 Continue reading

Dancing with the Stars, returns! And so does my over-dramatic Review!

Dancing with the Stars is back on MTV and I enjoyed last night’s first episode of the first season. Absolutely love MTV’s production quality and creativity.

It included a great lineup of celebrities, cute couples, nice music and I especially enjoyed the graphics and editing.

I spent quite some time with a few statuses on Facebook and Twitter. But I would also like to share a few highlights from last night’s episode, for everyone who has missed it:

1. Rony Fahed. This guy is too cute! With Grey hair and they way he can shake that waist! And and he’s not dumb! Imagine that. Might replace that Elie Stephan crush. But still too early to tell.

Roni

2. Carla couldn’t count four 5s and said 30 instead of 20. Next time she should be allowed to count on her fingers or use a calculator. Leish la2.

3. Wissam and how he makes all of Carla’s jokes less lame and less cliché every single time. This guy is not only Charismatic but also witty and in control. I absolutely love him and his hosting skills.
