Who Wants to Work for Diddy?

I’m not sure about you, but I can promise you, there’s no way I would want to work for Diddy. Don’t get me wrong, I respect the man, but some of the tasks he has the cast of this season’s “I Want to Work for Diddy” show on Vh1 seem to be – uhhhh – ridiculous!

I haven’t watched every episode this season, but I got a chance to tune in this past Monday. The show is quite entertaining and amusing, but I have to wonder, are these people (the contestants) really serious? Out of all the contestants, the one that strikes me as the “go-hard” of  this season is Ivory. If you watch the show, you know what I’m talking about. I watched in disbelief as she rubbed Cassie’s arms in order to “warm her up,” then gave Dawn (ex Danity Kane member –  just in case you forgot who she was) a foot bath and massage.

I guess this type of “go-hard or go-home” behavior is what keeps the ratings up. Last season it was Poprah (who made a ‘guest’ appearance as a mole for Diddy this season) and this time around its Ivory!

Don’t worry; we see your hustle Ivory. At least you have left an impression on the viewers, because the rest of the cast is rather uninteresting.

  1. I love I Want to Work For Diddy. It is one of my favorite shows. I would even love to be on the show.

    But honestly, I don’t think they even had auditions seriously… at least not for the Personal Assistant candidate. The people on the show seem like they were picked to fill roles that would be interesting for television.
    Ivory’s role: Black Aggressor better known as ‘Le Bitch’

    Let’s just hope there is a job waiting for the winner this time.

  2. Hmmmm… There is no way I would do this. Whether it’s real or just acting. I love the show because it’s entertaining to see how far people will go just to get a little fame! SMH

  3. Very good stuff with good ideas and concepts, lots of great information and inspiration, both of which we all need.
