Moses Washington Speaks About His Opportunity of a Lifetime

I interviewed Moses Washington, a contestant on Spike TV's upcoming new show "4th and Long" with Michael Irvin. 

This defensive back always dreamed of playing football since he first played at 8-years-old and this was his opportunity of a lifetime

After speaking with Washington, I can't wait to watch his journey through the show which premieres on May 18th.

What makes you different from every other defensive back? What are your strengths?

What makes me different then all the other defensive back is I feel I have natural raw talent. A lot of the guys on the show just played football. I double sported in college and ended my college career running track. So I never got a opportunity to reach my full potential in football. I felt they have. Being that they played all there years in college.
Do you think your age is a factor? Do you think it hinders you or helps you?

Only thing that hinders me Is what I believe that I cant do. The Other factors what people say I can't control.
What did you learn from your time on the show?

What I learn about the show is that obstacles are fighting things you see when you take your eyes off your vision. There was so many things they tried to do to make you believe that you couldn't do to finish the competition. But understanding that, I found that my true strength resides in my mind .

What are your goals for the future?

To use this experience to inspire others and to serve the needs of people and my community.

Any advice for guys who dream of having the chance you were recently given?

Yea… There is no use trying to use your situation as an excuse not to try new things. The saddest summary of life is sum up in three phrases… Would have could have but didn’t… If you try you never fail. You just found another way that doesn’t work.

The I Love Money 2 Winner is . . .

The season finale of "I love money 2" aired tonight on Vh1

The final five contestants - Tailor Made and It from "I Love New York 2", Prancer and Myammee from "Flavor of love 3" and Saaphyri from "Flavor of love 2" - competed for the $250,000 prize.

This time the dead last loser - Saaphyri - was automatically eliminated. Her check was bounced bringing it down to the final four.

Honestly with Myammee as the paymaster - Saaphyri would have went home anyway.

So at this point, Myammee would be an idiot not to send Prancer home. 

Clearly Prancer is the strongest person other than her. If you want to win - you eliminate the actual competition. 

So to say the least, I wasn't surprised when Prancer's check was voided.

And then there were three - Myammee, Tailor Made and It.

Just a side note - is It really that retarded or is he all an act? For a second there I really believed it was all an act. But nope ha ha - It really is that stupid. So now it was really down to the final two.

By this point I wasn't a fan of anyone. However, I was very happy Tailor Made didn't win.

I hope every season doesn't end the exact same - with the winner being another strong woman who dated Flavor Flav.

Love Tough Love

The season finale of the first season of "Tough Love" aired last night. 

The great thing about this Vh1 show is there is a woman on the show for every girl to relate to. 

I personally most relate to Jessa's situation. Steve Ward said she changes who she is for every guy she meets and she has control issues. It is like Steve diagnosed me. 

While watching the show and not personally experiencing it - you can still learn all the lessons to help in your life. 

These women were all so different and through boot camp they bonded and you feel like you've bonded with them from watching their personal life unfold on the television.

I thought this show was brilliant and honestly I think I like this show more than "Millionaire Matchmaker" on Bravo. This guy is hot and I would much rather stare at him than Patti - no offense girl.

If anyone knows someone unlucky in love they should go to this website to sign up for the next season of Tough Love. 

I prefer to be the viewer and learn from their mistakes and not broadcast mine but if you are braver than me - you should totally do it. 

From Rock of Love to Daisy of Love

Daisy De La Hoya, the “Rock of Love 2” runner-up is the star of this new show.

Seriously they'll give anyone a show these days. New York was living proof of that and now they have "Daisy of Love".

She claims she's looking for a boyfriend - cough bullsh*t cough – more like looking for a music career. Her little performance was semi pathetic. 

Wait a second - is Brett Michaels her boss now? Is he making a profit off her?

Oh wait here comes 20 men plus Riki Rachtman, the dean from Charm School and Rock of Love reunion host.

Ha ha wait maybe this guy is the one making the money off her – he felt bad cause she got beat up real bad by Heather on the Rock of Love 2 Reunion episode. 

These shows are all about promoting yourself and your talents but I got to hand it to them, it keeps me entertained.

Okay lets talk about Daisy for a second - all that plastic surgery not good.

All the looking back is like looking at a before and after but she gets fatter instead of skinnier so it's like instead of a good diet commercial – a good way for girls to get heavier aka uglier is to have your heart broken by a rock star (who is grotesquely old). Sorry Daisy for that burn - she is still pretty though if you don't mind the plastic surgery. 

Daisy is not the only one here to promote herself. 

Hello 12-pack. What is he doing here? 

He claims he is here for a chance with daisy but this repeat reality TV star has a not so trustworthy past. 

Then there's the Triplets - at first I thought they were girls ha ha. They are a band called "Snake of Eden" from Sweden. They were like struggling artists the way they were attacking the fridge.

Why were they eating cold hot dogs? I think they thought they were sausages because they dipped them in tomato sauce. Gross!

They reminded me of Frenchie - a star from two of vh1's reality television shows - with the bleach blond hair and all the captions but there's three lol and they want an orgy? 

Then there was the Brett Michael's look-a-like. Clearly she is not going to chose the Brett Michael's B-team when she's already had the A-team.

Okay so in the first episode it's tradition to do the nicknames - first up NUTS oh wait FLIPPER (anyone else seeing a theme hear?). Just had to mention that.

This show will be entertaining enough for me to keep watching so we'll see how these tool academy loser's do with the fight for Daisy's heart.

Comedy via Celebrity Apprentice

Tonight's Celebrity Apprentice was so funny. 

Dramatic of course, because 3 people got fired and we are now down to the final two. But absolutely HILARIOUS - celebrity apprentice has never been so comical.

On a side note, Brande Roderick was much smarter than everyone was giving her credit for. I am really upset that she was semi-portrayed as a dumb blond. It's not her fault she's pretty and she was so funny with her "dumb brunette" comment. Seriously though, hair color has nothing to do with your brain. Bottom line i thought she was hilarious. 

This episode was truly entertaining. Brande with her singing ha ha - it's okay I think I'm tone deaf too girl. 

Joan Rivers cracks me up man - "Quack Quack Splash" ha ha. She had so many funny ideas for Clint and she's just always on - its great. 

So, when Brande gets fired it got down to the final three. The hilarious Joan Rivers, and then these two . . . 

Jesse James, married to Sandra Bullock "one of the most desirable women" and "one of the biggest movie stars" as said on tonight's show by Donald trump.


Annie, the best female poker player in the world whose kind of the devil - i wouldn't say Hitler (Joan ha ha) but she's devilish. She came onto the show so nice and then slowly got scarier and more devilish each episode.

At this point, it's clearly obvious that Jessy James will be fired next because it will get more ratings and be much more entertaining when its down to the rivals. 

And what do you know - Annie Duke and Joan Rivers are the final two. This should be good mwahahahaha (scary laugh?)

The Opportunity of a Lifetime . . . Literally

The Hall of Fame receiver Michael Irvin is launching a reality television show in which 12 finalists compete to become the Dallas Cowboys' 80th and last roster member when training camp opens on July 31.

Beginning May 18, the all-new-original series "Fourth and Long" - taped at the Cotton Bowl - will be presented in episodes airing on Monday's on Spike TV over a period of 10 weeks.

Ranging from 22-years old to 30-years-old, six defensive backs and six wide receivers will be battling it out for the opportunity of a lifetime.

This show is the football version of "American Idol". I expect it to be just as good but with more action.

I don't know a lot about football but this trailer leads me to believe its intense - and intense keeps me interested.

Who doesn't want to see an underdog succeed? or a nobody become somebody? I do!

Crushing on Cupid

There is something about Greek mythology that I can't get enough of.  I love the approach this ABC show took using Greek mythology.

A HOT main male character as "Cupid" plus many more attractive characters equals a key trait for a highly successful show. 

He is the god of love sent to earth to bring 100 couples together but no body believes him. Don't worry Trevor - I believe you.

Matchmaking and television have clearly become a popular team. This show is different because it's not a reality show like Bravo's "Millionaire Matchmaker" and Vh1's "Tough Love" but you never know if he will make a match or not on each episode.

This story line is original and intriguing while it still succeeds in having a hint of fact behind it with the Greek mythology.

I hope that Trevor and Claire eventually end up together and she becomes Cupid's wife as they hinted too recently in an episode.

I love the idea of that working out but I am that hopeless romantic that always roots for the 'happily ever after' ending.

This show could go on for a million season's and I would love it. Here's to hoping.
