Poprah Keeps It Real – Episode 4


Once again, we present the always-outspoken Poprah’s take on the latest episode of I Want To Work for Diddy. Below, she discusses the Downtown Team’s crumbling infrastructure, her conflict with Red and Brianna’s sad, sad departure.

As always, you know I’m gonna tell ya like it is. And there’s no need to rehash the whole episode because I’m sure you saw it, right? But I’ve got some juicy stuff to tell you that you didn’t see. Where should I began?

Okay, first of all when I’m watching the show, some of the stuff that happens on the other team, Downtown, of course, is as big a shock to me, as it to you. Because we don’t always see what they’re doing while we’re doing our tasks, there’s no time to worry about them, we’re just trying to save our sorry-ass team. We did not know they were spying on us, and that gave Boris, the balls to wear the super-hero gear. They might have lost without that. Damn.

Anyway, I was also shocked and delighted to see that Downtown is not the model of perfection that they put on to be. We all already knew the tension between Laverne, and Boris, the Annoy-is, but who would have thought that the “Bobbsey Twins,” Kendra and Stephanie were having some serious issues, and not everyone thinks Mike is a God, even if he does. Don’t get me wrong I wasn’t looking for problems on their team, I honestly thought they were just this “supercrew” that clicked so well, and our team was just the anal retentive “house of doom.” But it really gave me some clarity because they really acted like there was never any tension on their team. Was it sheer genius or are they the masters of “the fake?” Cuz they had me fooled.

If I don’t like you, you will know it, because I will straight up tell you. But I will let you know that I can respect you enough to get the job done. This industry requires a lot of ass-kissing, and phoniness, and that’s the part I hate about it. But I did realize that for me to stay in the competition, I’d have to start playing that part of the game, even if it is sooooo hard for me. Cuz I just I like to keep it real. Let’s just do our freaking job and keep moving. I don’t have to be your friend and I don’t care if you like me. I act when I’m in a movie, for me, this opportunity was for real, and I was real about it.

I was surprised that they didn’t include our team’s interview with Cassie, a gorgeous and talented, Bad Boy recording artist, as part of our viral video. Unfortunately, ninety seconds was so short that couldn’t use her footage in our video edit, so maybe that’s why it didn’t make the show. But Red, was like a “groupie’ when he met her, and once again, that exemplified that he’s so out of touch with the real industry. During our interviews he was interjecting questions, even though he was the camera guy, not the host. For the record, people, that is a major no-no. Camera people do not interrupt the interviews unless there is a major technical error, or they are also producing which was Brianna’s job.

Red must have short-man syndrome (Napoleon complex), or something because he never wants anyone, especially me (a woman) to tell him anything, even though he knows, and we know, he doesn’t know jack. Talk about frus-tra-ting! What do you call that? Diddy would call that, “bitchassness”.

This is why I was determined to get rid of him, knowing that he was still working against me with a vengeance for no reason, other than needing someone to blame. This time, thank God, it wasn’t working. I just didn’t want to risk him badmouthing me again, when I was finally making headway with the rest of the team. That’s why I pulled the “girl power” speech. It’s a game people, and they’re forcing me to play, sheer talent is not enough here, it’s a microcosm of bulls***. And I’m here to win.

Before I go, I have to talk about Ms. Brianna. As you guys know, we did not hit it off when this show started, it almost came to blows. But we squashed that, like real women do, and I really started to get to know her. She, unlike most of the people in the house, was real. Angry or sad, like you or not, she was real. That I respect. She really does pull out her lashes and refuses to eat the ends of French fries. But quirks, attitude and all, I really was sad when she left and Red’s dumb ass stayed. Her attention to detail was an asset to the team. She was just out of her league. When it came down to it, she was honest. She didn’t vote against me just because, she supported me when it came down to being fair and I can work with someone like that all day. I cried when she was eliminated, I really felt her pain.

Now, word to the wise, watch fake-ass Suzanne. She’s the wolf in sheep’s clothing, for real. She told the other team that she really poured Ciroc in her nose for our viral video, knowing damn well it was only distilled water. Boris called her out on it like, “Suzanne, didn’t you tell us you really poured Ciroc in your nose?” She was like, “Uh, I just said that for TV, you know how it is.” Me and Boris both knew it was bullcrap. Suzanne will do anything, in this competition or in real life, to get over or look good. Diddy BEWARE! It’s that serious, she’s got some serious integrity issues and you can’t afford that no matter how rich you are. Thieves and liars will destroy an empire. Can you say, En-ron?

Love you guys, always real, your girl,
