For an August 12 segment of her show on BlogTalkRadio, Becky "Buckwild" Johnson makes it clear she likes being famous. The segment's main goal? To help her get back on Flavor Of Love. Those who are aware of the former rap hypeman's train wreck of a reality show on VH1 will know that the series has been brought back for a third season.
During the second season, Ms. Johnson, who was a contestant for the heart of Flavor Flav, dropped out of the race because she was on the verge of violating her probation. It's believable that Buckwild loved Flav. For all the black-acting she did and has done since that season ended, it is clear that she is in desperate need of attention and feels somehow that her being white makes her plain.
Ms. Johnson needs to know a little secret — being black is no more a paradise than is being white. The trouble is the brothers and sisters that Becky associates with aren't being real with her — they are merely posing. Not all African-Americans like the same things or act the same way. In fact, she would be surprised to find out that some black people are as dry as the white people she attempts to disassociate herself from.
Yes, I said it. There are such things as "dull black folks". I'm one of them.
I suppose the only way you make it in life is by wearing a pair of rose-colored glasses and never seeing the forest for the trees. In her case it got her on Flavor Of Love, Charm School and as a result — a following on her online talk show. The more we see of soul sista Buckwild and not Becky Johnson, the more people won't know what's real.
