Good grief, I am such a slacker. I haven’t named an Afrobella of the Week in two weeks! That’s what I get for giving myself another deadline, I suppose. I mentioned that the latest Afrobella of the Week would be an unusual choice. And I guess she’s not a beauty in the conventional sense, but she always looks good as hell. Ladies and germs, I present to you Miss Wanda Sykes. I love Wanda! She’s funny, fierce, and fly.
Check out my girl in Pootie Tang, for example- one of our favorite movies. I can’t tell y’all how many times I’ve seen Pootie Tang, and you can’t tell me that Biggie Shorty wasn’t a bad bitch (in a good way).
Wah dah tah!
Wanda makes the perfect foil in so many comedic roles. If I see that she’s part of a film or television show, I know that it will be at least 40% funnier than I had previously assumed. Because of Wanda, I will be giving The New Adventures of Old Christine a shot.
Wanda’s become the go-to sassy black woman, and she takes those supporting roles and steals the show. The role I enjoy her in the most is on Curb Your Enthusiasm. I love how she just shows up at the perfect time to call Larry David on his racism.
Now she’s gone completely natural and I think she looks beautiful. She’s rocking the highlights, and her hair is short and oh so pretty. It suits her persona so much more than ever before.
I can’t wait for Wanda’s latest HBO special, Sick and Tired. Judging from her recent appearance on Jay Leno (in which she made me laugh so hard I cried, with her jokes about that sick bastard Mark Foley), she’s in top form.
Congratulations, Wanda! You’re Afrobella of the Week!
