Oh no they didn't?.. Scandal in the Buppies preview

Tatyana Ali “Buppies” Teaser: Down Low and Chick Fights

On Saturday, the first peek of Buppies, Tatyana Ali and Julian Breece’s dip into the emerging world of straight to the web television shows, was posted on a few video sites. Watching the clip I was just about to say that it looks and feels like every..  and then this happens.

down low scandal

Now you know why I used that chick in the top pic - scandal. I believe that uh.. bonding.. happens just before she kisses the same guy. Is that her boyfriend.. down low? Up high, and she was teaching them techniques? It’s hard to tell exactly what’s going on since it’s just a preview, but here you go..

The 1 minute impression? It doesn’t look like anything I would sit through. The theme looks like something ripped from the pages of a black romance novel, way too predictable. I’m also someone who has only watched one Tyler Perry movie for the same reason and look how broke he is for not getting my dollar.

Translation: Do you Tatyana.

But if I may speak in my $1000 suit, build a site or get in a Hulu kind of situation. TV on the web works if you do it right.

I liked it! It looked professionally done to me and way better than that Tyler Perry show. Tyler Perry?  I love your blog, but that was low boo boo 😉. I’m a Taty fan tho so I’m excited. It just a preview so we should be patient.

Soooo looking forward to this. I’m wondering how far they are going to take that story line. It’s sort of reminiscent of Noah’s Arc, which of course was canceled. I hope this doesn’t have the same demise…

Hey Steph..

It’s going to be a web only show.
Not sure where it’s going to be posted yet or when it debuts, but I’ll let you know.
