eSpot & Social Networking

February 23, 2010

ESpot Entertainment News is trying something new. Many of you are on Twitter and Facebook so I will be posting entertainment news on those sites.

I will continue to post on the blog though because it’s my baby and I can’t let it go 🙂

The blog will be a weekly highlight of the entertainment news from the week.

So if you’re not a member on my facebook or twitter pages, below are the links. See you here and there!



Shelia, why are you posting on twitter and facebook?
Answer: I love the world of entertainment and love to share the news with others. I didn’t want to give up eSpot because I’ve gotten over a million hits since its birth and people are used to getting great info from the site.

Time constraints have kept me from being able to update the site daily like in the past. As I branch out and grow in the entertainment field, it’s time for me to branch in this new direction.

I want you to come along for the ride.


2010 Grammy Awards Quick Recap

February 1, 2010

The Grammys belonged to the ladies this year. Only one person was missing in action this year and that was the song bird Mariah Carey. Ashanti & Jennifer Hudson would get the Best Dressed award from me. Rihanna would get the worse dressed.

I was online a lot last night sharing the 2010 Grammy Award moments with other music fans. Below are pictures from Essence and some live tweet comments from my tweet page:

Beyonce’s performance was good; although I would have preferred her doing Halo instead of If I Was a Boy. She was the big winner of the night with 6 Grammys. I was surprised she didn’t win Album of the Year (and so was Kanye…smile)

Mary J Blige was stunning and sang her heart out during the Haiti relief tribute. Also check out Mary’s new CD.

Jennifer, Usher and the rest of the singers during the Michael Jackson tribute had me in tears. I know I’m not alone when I say I miss Michael. Seeing his two kids come accept the award was priceless.

You’ll have to see my tweet responses below on what I thought about Rihanna. Hmm.

Is Usher and Chilli back together as reported on MediaTakeout? I don’t know but I sure know he’s looking good these days.

Lady Gaga will probably have one of the most talked about performances.

Excerpt from Twitter conversation:

Taylor Swift ain’t the only one surprised she won album of the year.

I can stop watching The Grammys now. Maxwell was the highlight of my night.

Never thought I would be jealous of Roberta Flack but I was tonight with her up there with Maxwell.

And u know I love me some #LLCOOLJ since I write about him in most of my books.

Bey had that look–I know I got this. Congrats on another Grammy

Feel like I grew up with Mary J. We’ve all evolved into grown women.

Okay I need more tissue–just when you think you’re having problems, all you have 2 do is think about our bro & sis in Haiti.

Jennifer Hudson can’t sing a bad note.

I miss you Michael.

If it wasn’t for FB or Tweet, I would be falling asleep on some of these performances. (yes, I was getting bored)

T Pain could have stayed at home. I love Jamie though.

MoNique Wins Golden Globe

January 18, 2010

Congrats to MoNique for her unforgettable role in the movie Precious based on the book Push by Sapphire.

Below are some of my comments on Twitter during last night’s Golden Globe:

Yes!!! Monique congrats on your Golden Globe 

I love that dress Monique has on.

I just love Sandra Bullock. I hope she wins one tonight as well. 

I watch the show The Good Wife–glad to see people winning that I actually want to win.

I also like Monique, Mariah Carey and Penelope Cruz’s dresses.

The organizers weren’t that prepared–on the red carpet…they didn’t have tents up and they all had to walk in the rain.

I knew Meryl Streep was going to win.

Every time I see Precious there are scenes that bring me to tears.

Kevin Bacon wins…I don’t recall seeing his performance though so I’ll have to check it out later.

Congrats Drew Barrymore–stop crying though girl–accept that award and get off the stage!

I want Drew to play one of my characters. She’s a natural.

True Blood or House should have won that one.

Okay I take it from the fellows responses Halle gets best dressed lol

I need the vitamins Sophia Loren is taking. She is ageless.

I saw Avatar 2 weeks ago–loved it.

I saw the movie The Hangover…surprisingly I liked the movie.

I’ve enjoyed sharing the Golden Globe moments with you all. I hope this week is all that U need it 2 B.
