I’ve been meaning to write about the show Girlfriend Intervention for awhile now. But after seeing the first episode of the show I wanted to watch a few episodes before I gave my honest opinion.
First let me tell you what the show is about. The shows appears on the Lifetime network. It’s about four black women who go to the homes of Caucasian women and give them makeovers. They redecorate a room in their home, help them build confidence, a new hairstyle, and of course a new outfit. Basically helping them find themselves again.
Okay I’m going to be honest. The only person I recognize on the show is Tanisha Thomas. I’m actually a big fan of hers. I don’t know why but I just like her. It may have something to do with that she has qualities that I don’t. I actually like the other women as well. Anyway let me tell you what I like about the show. I love the transformations. I have yet to see a look that I didn’t like. The women in the end always seem to be more confident and happier. I think it is great that they pay attention to the whole woman and not just the way she is dress. I think my favorite episode so far was last week’s episode where they helped a woman who had battled cancer. I think makeovers are great.
Now for what I don’t like about the show. There is only one thing that I don’t like and that is how they are constantly saying black women this and black women that. I don’t get why they don’t just say women. Cause not all black women are accepting of things like their curves. I know I’m not. I mean I get the whole concept of the show but I just don’t like it. I think the show should just embrace all women. Black women are different in many ways and maybe we are a little more accepting of some things but it isn’t just us. Other than that I really like the show. I just wish it were more about helping the women. Oh and I also hate the term basic woman. No one should be referred to as that to me it just ugly to refer to someone that way.
Have you seen the show? What do you think?
