Well the hope that MoNique could turn these poor examples of women into respectable young ladies was flushed down the toilet with the VH1 Charm School Reunion. Saphyrri and Leilene actually turned their lives around in a positive manner. Of course, their accomplishments were completely overshadowed by Brooke being proud to be known as a whore, Schatar being proud to be known as dumbass, Crystal being known as a potty mouth and don’t let me forget Shay and Larissa who brought her ghetto ass mama with her.

It was true embarrassment to black women and blondes everywhere. Brooke was dumb enough to say that black women are more conservative while her behavior was the norm for blonde haired, blue eyed white girls like her. Becky-Buckwild, was quick to check Brooke telling her that her whore like behavior didn’t represent her, after Brooke went to her for confirmation of her claims. The most disturbing and disgraceful part of the show, was not the fight between Larissa and Shay, because we all saw it coming and well, we expected it. The moment that Black America wanted to crawl under a rock came when Larissa’s mom rolled her big ass out of the audience to try and check MoNique, when she should have been getting at her vulgar mouth daughter.

I will say that you could tell that Shay had some home training because, when MoNique, her elder, told her to be quiet, after making a complete fool of her self by arguing back and forth with Larissa, she shut up…out of respect. She even apologized to Larissa and America for her distasteful behavior and childish name calling…add one more lady to the show. MoNique made a heartfelt speech about the plight of black women and how we are view in society and how we help to shape that negative view. In the end, Larissa and her mother listened and Larissa responded like the scared little girl she is.

In it’s quest to change America’s view on young black women Charm School failed miserably and VH1 got another highly rated show at the expense of black women.

Saaphyri at 2007 BET Awards

Saaphyri  wins!!! It came down between Leilene, the stripper, and Saaphyri, the hoodrat. Yes, between the reformed stripper and the remade hoodrat…the hoodrat wins! Don’t feel sorry for Leilene though, she won an agent as her consolation prize. Saaphyri even got those God awful ugly Ugh boots back. I thought that my eyes would roll out of the sockets, when she fell to her knees thanking god and crying…that was not charming. I don’t know, maybe she was that moved. Who am I to judge?

It has been apparent that Saaphyri had won for the past week or so though, with her popping up at celebrity events during the week leading up to the BET awards. The only other Charm School ladies photoed were Goldie (Courtney) and Boots (Larissa) and we all know neither of them were going to win. Plus, it was evident by her full body overhaul that she had come into some money. I wonder if she put a down payment on her own house? If so, then good for her!

A part of the show that I really did enjoy was after Shay was railroaded off by Becky, Saaphyri and Leilene, MoNique brought her back as the surprise judge to decide who would go on to win the $50,000.  Lesson learned: Watch who you step on as you climb your way to the top.  Shay stepped up and proved that she was a REAL woman after all. When put in a situation, in which many of us would most likely seek revenge, Shay rose to the occasion and put her personal feeling aside and make her decision…kind of. The highlights of the show can be see on Vh1’s VSpot.
