REALITY BYTES: PCO90210 is BAAAAAAAAAACK BABY!
We’re two whole days away from the big premiere & I am tickled pink! It’s been 5 ridiculous months since I’ve posted on the blog, I apologize, but I have been super busy with shooting season 2 of Private Chefs of Beverly Hills, planning my new interactive cooking class called Plate Dates, working on a photo series for Single Serving, setting up my Opensky store & let’s face it more people were reading my Facebook than my blog so I needed a chance to regroup & get jazzed about something to talk about. My friends back home have pink viewing parties in my honor so every week I send them a cocktail recipe & a shot game. Hmmm what will the shot game be for this season? Here are the episode descriptions for this season from Food Network:

NOW…. back to the shot game:
Every time you hear Stuart say “really?”, place his hands on his hips, squint his eyes or makes you think dirty, dirty thoughts about him swimming buck naked in a pool full of Lucky Charms…. take a shot.
Every time Brooke says “fantastic” or looks like she wants to kill a client or makes you INSANELY jealous because she just popped out a baby FOUR MONTHS AGO & looks thinner than you…. take a shot.
Every time Jesse aka the “Propmaster” holds up a prop, hums a impromptu Negro Hymn & Spiritual, really wants to tell the client to go fly a kite but instead nods his head, closes his eyes & simply with a wave of his hand puts a positive spin on it instead but says in his confessional EVERYTHING you were thinking… but only funnier…. take a shot.
Every time Brian says “Yumsters”, “get it in”, “Chesapeake Bay” ANYTHING, “I just gotta do me” or speaks in the third person…. take a shot.
Every time Sasha challenges Stuart, flirts with a client, uses a big fantastic word or hypes up her food…. take a shot! If she makes you wonder why in the hell she’s rocking a flower & a hairnet like someone else I know… take TWO shots! Just sayin’.
Every time you see my double chin, I mention Haiti or being Haitian, bug my eyes out, look like I want to leave or may cut someone or you see ANY of my pink crap take a shot.
Alright, alright all jokes aside you may get alcohol poisoning from all of these directions but what you CAN do is tune in on Tuesday make some of our recipes that is up here on Food Network’s website & enjoy this wonderful cocktail with your friends as you laugh at our expense.
