(this one is long overdue)
okay, if you’re not familiar SCHOOL GIRL CRUSH is a post i do on the crushes my friends and i had as adolescents. usually, if it’s an actor i like to highlight the character they played that made us fall in love with them.
mister OMAR EPPS is tough. none of my friends can decide if it was when he played “Q” in “JUICE”, “MALIK” in “HIGHER LEARNING” or “QUINCY” in “LOVE AND BASKETBALL”. either way, he was too cool for school…
recently OMAR made a VIOLETTE purchase (yes you heard me!) and when i found out i mentioned it to ELLE and KARL. they immediately reverted back to their young selves.
KARL (my FILIPINO/GERMAN friend) said the funniest thing that made me choke on the water i was drinking at the time he sent me this message…
“O-M-G! You know I used to french kiss my pillow and pretend it was him and I was Tyra Banks which was easy since every time I looked in the mirror, I saw a black girl.”
when i saw this BLACK STREET video for “BEFORE I LET YOU GO”, it was like a harpoon going through my middle school heart. maybe because it was the rumor that he had married the lead in that video, SHARI HEADLEY (“Lisa McDowell” in “COMING TO AMERICA”).
ELLE just mentioned to me that he married KEISHA from TOTAL (also known as “the hot one”) and that they have a lovely family. how perfect is that! the guy we all had a crush on married to the girl we all wanted to be like! i love that.
(thanks for the support OMAR!)
