Parental control

I was watching MTV this evening and i saw that the next programme was titled "Parental Control".I thought to myself o.k,what are these people up to again they just have some crazy ideas for TV programmes-if it's not "Next",it's "Room raiders".Parental Control,for those that have not seen it involves the parents interviewing "suitable" partners for their kids with the mother and father providing one candidate each.The daughter/son now has to go on dates with the 2 people picked while the parents and the present boyfriend/girlfriend watch everything going on.What amazes me about the show is how this particular girl was talking to her boyfriend's parents,if that was Naija she would have received some nice slaps.
I can imagine my parents coming to tell me they had candidates for me to date,i would know there was something seriously wrong.There are some shows that would never work in Naija sha.



I was watching a Nigerian film where this babe was sleeping with her ex.They didnt get married because he wasn't ready and there was pressure from her mother for her to start giving her grandkids.Anyways she meets someone else who was ready to marry her,fast forward some years-she has a kid but her husband was usually out of town.So she called her ex to act as her splackavellie.I was now wondering do people have that person in their life that could ever tempt them to cheat on their partner.My friend stated once that she suspects that i could be tempted to cheat on my husband with my Ex(that's how much i liked him),i want to believe that's not true though.

The premiership is back and i know that's what will take up my weekend.I am so excited and nervous at the same time,i hope it will be a back to back premiership title for United.I should put a tenner on it,Hehe!

Have a lovely weekend!

I HYAVE SEEN A FEW EPISODES OF THE MTV 'PARENTAL CONTROL' SHOW. MATCH MAKING IS TOO MUCH FOR ME. ALL FOR TV.
I WOULD HOPE THERE IS NO ONE THAT WILL TEMPT ME TO CHEAT ON MY HUSBAND (NOT MARRIED). I HARDLY LIKE MY EXES TO GO BACK TO THEM AFTER A WHILE SO....HAVE A BLESSED WEEKEND

I feel so good. Wow, that was one of the best ManU matches I have ever seen...to end goalless with all their purchases.
And see how everyone shouted about Rooney's foot. No one remebered McCarthy had a more serious injury. Hmmmmmm!

Nyemoni said...

No, I haven't seen parental control, but when MTV says parental control, then I can hazard a guess regarding what it's going to be like..and Yeah,,,the premiership has started...

La Reine said...

I'm glad for the video at the end cuz I was all "Splacka-WHAT?"

Parental Control is a crap show, but MTV is supposed to be playing Music anyway.
---and sometimes the parents as well at the child and their boo need to be slapped, for coming on the show.
That's just me

Manda said...

princesa said...

Looks like thats the koko on TV this days.
So did ur team win the match?

Ugo Daniels said...

Ok, OFF TOPIC. How does it feel like havin a goaless draw on a first match and Roomney out for the next 2 months. I don't know 'bout you BUT i feel fcuking xcited.

Am i terrorising you? ;)

Omosewa said...

Was it the epe movie? That was just wrong. Lol@ hot slaps if it was Naija. Please teach me how to get into football. If Naija isnt playing, i cant watch for 30secs sef,lol

יש (Yosh) said...

"ARRANGEY" marriage?! Rubbish, kelebe, nonsense. Show or no show, I don't sanction it!

Loving your comment on my post! :)Thx for stoppin by!

Vickii said...

There are some crazy mtv shows ... date my mom for example.

If I was in a relationship and I had someone in my life who I genuinely thought I might be tempted to cheat with, I think I'd have to cut them off from my life totally because most of the time, we're strong enough to resist those kinds of temptations and I wouldn't want to find out what would happen if I ever lost that strength.

AN IBO DUDE'S CORNER said...

never seen it

will look out for it

Anonymous said...

I cant stand Tv anymore........too much crap on. Its always reality this reality that. I'v always loved TV but i cant blieve how much i hate it now. The Sweet Sixteen one is the most annoying, why would i want to know what some spoilt kid got for their bday? I cant be bothered to see parental Control , I'm sure its equally crap!

Good Luck with the premiership, I dont know jack about football but u & ugo always make it seem like such a big deal. Maybe i'l jst become a footie fan from now on since there's nothing more exciting on Tv anyways, lol!

Confessions of a moody crab said...

Chelsea forever...you guys should better watch out. On parental control, is the programme not same as date my mom? Anyway, that stuff would never work in naija.

eddiie said...

Hehehe,...the PG thing doesnt work as far as i have researched....

Now days kids shy away when its Kissin or betyond time..The parents pretend to be seriuos and life goes on...

Its just put there for formalilty..Otherwise there is nothing PG do...

Parental control is just to make sure the Media houses dont get into open trouble just because they didnt put up a precatuion..

The b;ame for me is on parents...They seem too busy for their kids..

But thats the world we live in today..

Naija Vixen said...

Babes...update!!! This has to be the worse start to the prem ever...i was too vexed to care...and i had liverpool and arsenal fans in my house...and you know them folks dont have sympathy! So....UPDATE!!!

lovita said...

I watch parental ctrl and it's just crazy...I can't imagine my bro's Gf talking to my parents like that, I'll whoop her behind befoe kicking her out of our house

About the ex thing.. Anything can happen these days. You've once known the person. You've been with the person...Old flames might spark when you see... someway somehow, you've got a soft spot 4 that person.

l love the song. Girl, that was nice. I really don't know much about parental control but l know in the states.......lately a lot is going on.

SOLOMONSYDELLE said...

Are you kidding me? There is really a song called Spakavellie or whatever? Jeez...

As for parental control, that show can be addictive. Watching these young children yap grown folks. But, for real, if that were Naija, boy, they would have to call police to arrest the parents for coming close to killing the useless children....

Vera Ikeji said...

I am not really a TV person so i haven't seen the MTV Parental Control thingy. To sports. I enjoy watching sports whenever i can, especially on weekends. I can't believe how Man. City made Man U. run around the field without scoring any goal. I felt sorry for Man U. wt the way they kept scampering to score goals. Ball possession must have bn 65%-35% to Man.U.
Man. City had only one good chance at scoring and they did. Richards is a VERY fantastic defender, he kept frustrating Man. U. by blocking off a lot of chances at goals.
End result Man City 1- Man. U. Nil.
Sorry. It is well. Lol.

Atutupoyoyo said...

I dey fear show face for work today na so-so abuse they just dey rain on top my head. We need a win fast!! The confidence is slowly eroding.

Nyemoni said...

Hey girl, wey you? Have a nice week!

classybabe said...

@confessions of a moody crab,we all know Man.United is the best team,hehe
@eddie,I have seen some kids watching some films at cinemas which they shouldn't have,that's the sad reality
@naijavixen,this is our worst start in 15 years and i am not finding it 4ny at all.The boys are playing well but the goals are not just going in.It's like we are the new arsenal
@lovita,me sef i would have sent some of those boyfriends/girlfriends out of the house,the 2 episodes i saw they were just too rude
@yankeenaijababe,like the song myself,shemar moore even makes it better
@solomonsydelle,i was surprised when i heard the song,i hadn't heard it in a while but looked for it so people would know what it meant
@veraikeji,i don't understand how we didn't score against city,we didn't test that keeper enough
@atutupoyoyo,not only you,people have been making fun f me seriously,2 points out of a possible is a huge shame.we cant seem to buy a goal,hope our situation gets better fast oh
@Nyemoni,been around oh.Have a great week too!

Miss Opeke said...

I hope U R still in BlogVille and have not thrown in d towel too??? Abi, it is b/c Man C defeated Man U on Sunday??? Abeg let's know whatz up...Take care of U...

femme said...

nice slaps ke? me am married and still dey fear my papa face. who born me do boyfriend in front of my parents?
realty tv can be eeehhh!

princesa said...

UPDATE!

Writefreak said...

I haven't seen the show but it doesn't sound good..some shows will definitely not work here. I think cheating on one's spouse is more of a matter of principle, any such person that can be of remote temptation should definitely be cut off!
