Backstage With Wanda Sykes!

Backstage With Wanda Sykes!
ummm… and we’re still geeking! Daddy and I attended Wanda’s Philly standup as her ‘personal guests’, fancy, huh?! *raises glass and drinks… liberally*


This woman is a masterful story teller, even more gorgeous in person and don’t even get me started on that glorious hair! O.M.G.! Sorry for the dramatics, but this ish is real.

We drove four treacherous hours through the mountains to get here and it was like *flips hair and pops bubble gum*… so worth it. I laughed so hard a little pee came out. If she’s coming to a town near you, drop what you’re doing and run, RUN to the theater.

    Great interview. But don't know how everyone else has failed to comment on the cuteness of Boog's slippers. Love 'em.

    Stop it! ack! I was on Facebook doing the happy dance for you.
    So awesome that you got a chance to meet one of the great storytellers around.

  • Jeannette says:

    It was during the 2009 White House Correspondents' Dinner that it hit me that Wanda Sykes was such a genius at comedy. She had my stomach hurting from so much laughter.

    Ok, I'm officially jealous! Your hair looks better than ever in that photo! I have some lacio lacio. I may have to give it another shot!
    So cute that the baby is pretending to talk on the cell phone!

    OMG! Awesome that you met and spent a bit of time with Wanda. She is totally awesome!

    You both look fantastic in the pics. Your hair looks amazing and I think I see the effects of the Lacio Lacio conditioner on your hair. I bought some, tried it and it makes my hair so bouncy and shiny like nothing else has! Love this stuff!!!!

    So cool, Nikki! I really admire Wanda. And you look great, girl. You could've been a model! πŸ™‚

  • Valencia says:

    BTW…I was kidding about being jealous, Nikki. You deserve every bit of success and recognition that you get!!

  • Valencia says:

    She DEALT with breast cancer and kept it moving! I loved her to the max before but hearing her attitude and seeing her overcoming this thing, it has taken it to an even higher level. I'm not going to lie. I am SOOOO jealous! I love her. I'm hoping to make it to see her in VA next weekend. I won't get the CN VIP treatment but I would be honored to be around her all the same. You two look GORGEOUS in your pic together.

  • MzTashonda says:

    Wanda looks great. Now I thought she was currently dealing with breast cancer? Either way she looks great. I'd love to see her act.

  • CURLYNIKKI says:

    girl, that's not even a cell, that's a damn remote control… Boog thinks everything is a cell. And that photo with her mouth open… she's saying, 'hellooooo'!

  • I Am Your People says:

    Boogie + cell phone = way too much cute! And I'm not jealous at all that you met Wanda Sykes. Nope, or champagne backstage, noooo πŸ™‚
