FLO KNOWS



It was great seeing Jennifer Hudson win a Golden Globe for her stunning performance in "Dreamgirls". I mean, the movie wouldn’t be a hit without her. I also loved that she thanked Flo Ballard whom her character Effie White is based.

Unfortunately, life doesn’t always imitate art. Unlike Effie White, who had a triumphant return at the end of the movie, Flo Ballard died penniless in the Detroit projects at age 32. Like Effie, Flo started the Supremes; but she was replaced as lead singer by Diana Ross and later kicked out of the group entirely because of her sass and large ass. Berry Gordy and Miss Ross did everything in their power to ruin Flo’s solo career. And in the end, Miss Ross became a huge star and Flo lost her house, her fortune, her health, and finally, her life.

Check out Mary Wilson’s fabulous book, “Dreamgirl – My life as a Supreme” for the real story of the Supremes,

Honey, my life would make a fabulous book. And if you know from my past blogs, I was the only alter boy not abused - the start of my insecurity.

HELLO GAYS!!! What about Beyonce bitching that she would have loved to play Effie if only she could have put on 20lbs.? Anyone want to say out loud how retarded, overrated, and boring Beyonce is? She is a singer dancer lipsyncher performer, NOT AN ACTOR. And she is a jealous spiteful EGO BITCH too. Sometimes sister looks like she is wearing a 14th street wig.

hey Jules, I happen to think bertha's ignorant (and plus sized) contributions give mister makeup's sense of humor a chance to come out and entertain us all.

for proof, scroll back to "get off my blog fatty"

Well just cause my name's Bertha doesnt mean Im a whale! Im actually a petite size 2 and was born and raised in Vegas. Im glitzy and glam. And I dislike negativity, as well as sterotypical fags. Oh don't get me wrong, I love homo's. Just not the ones who place thier permanent psychological damage on otherlike MM does. I mean MM is obviously smart and entertaning...but SO TRANSPARANTLY UNHAPPY that it makes me hope he will get himself into some good counseling! Im hoping MM can use his wit for good instead of the typical sterotypical gay bullshit which is the road he has been taking since I stumbled onto this blog.

Diana Ross is going to go to see "dreamgirls" with her lawyer she said today on the AP! I wonder if she will pull a donald and sue? After all, her career was never the same after all that Mary Wilson scandal came about and I'm sure Dreamgirls is not helping her one bit.

Honey, I wear my "negativity" like a badge of honor. And thank you for letting us bloggers know who you are Bertha dear. And for someone who claims to shun "negativity", you sure like to spew it out. Are you a republican? You know, say one thing and do another.

I am partial to Ann Culter. Crazy as she is. She has a bit of a vegas home girl pizaz! But Im an independant, NOT a Republican! Bertha

mistermakeup said...

Well, I kinda like Ann Culter, too. I mean, I don't agree with a word that comes out of her potty mouth, but she is good entertainment. Althougth her unforgiveable comments about the 911 widows probably has sunk her career.

Diana Ross said today she is filing a mega "Trump" lawsuit against "Dreamgirls"! I wonder what will happen next?

Maxine Ballard writes the True Story of Florence Ballard!

Florence "Blondie" Ballard, Diane "Diana" Ross and Mary Wilson met and
became childhood friends during the 1950's. Under the watchful eye and
skilled tutelage of Milton Jenkins, the friends later became the trio
The Primettes, ultimately transformed into the greatest female singing
group of all time – The Supremes. In 1967, Florence Ballard left the
group, and though much has been written about her life after the
Supremes, the true facts of her story have never surfaced - until now.
Maxine "Precious" Ballard Jenkins – the sister of Florence Ballard –
has written the true account of Florence Ballard's life, including her
reasons behind leaving the group, the relationship she shared with
childhood friends, Mary and Diane, and the dramatic turn her life took
in later years. The book also helps to dispel many of the rumors
surrounding Florence Ballard's death. Your view of Florence Ballard
and her life will be dramatically reversed after reading this book!
