It’s like an abusive relationship that we keep coming back to…
Honestly, many of us on the HH staff have been over the Kardashians for years now. Not in a hater way, just in a way that we feel like it is no longer necessary, nor fulfilling, to follow them, like them, watch them or support their various business ventures or brands (many of us never did in the first place, but we digress).
But, for the few of us that did enjoy watching the show or following their social media antics, this most recent ‘KUWTK’ trailer is the straw that has broken the proverbial camel’s back.
We know a few of these chicks are pregnant, but of course, not a baby bump in sight. Instead, Kylie has gone into hiding (not featured in the trailer at all) and Khloe has some big secret and everyone is crying and can’t believe it (pregnancy, duh!). But the way that ‘KUWTK’ plays it’s viewers like fools has just gotten to the point that it’s unacceptable.
This trailer doesn’t make you want to watch the show. The trailer makes you irritated that they string you along and pre-produce their lives to achieve ratings gold. It’s annoying and we’re over it.
Oh, and let’s not even start with the Blac Chyna shade. That girl was just getting the last laugh. Let’s not forget what your family did to her first! But anywoo…
Y’all can watch if you want. We won’t be. But I’m sure we’ll see the long-awaited baby bumps on our IG timeline in due time. Until then we won’t be keeping up. (but if you want to see the trailer below)
Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!
Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.
In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.
“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”
What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.
“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”
Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
