I rocks with the lighter nation

You could never tell from my pics or the RBW playlist, but I do f*cks with the lighter nation. My first best friend back in elementary school was from the lighter nation. Her name was Colleen. I never knew what a Peanut Butter Fluff sandwich was until I spent the night over her house. All we ever have in my house was PB & J. Its so funny because we recently found each other on Facebook and she lives in NYC too...crazy!

I have a slew of white homies, but there is nothing like having a white homegirl around every once in a while. I feel like I'm missing out on something though because I don't have a lighter nation friend that's the epitome of the lighter nation. I have the Italian friend (they don't count), I have the Jewish friend (they don't count either), but not just the plain old lighter nation that denotes the fact that they have even the slightest bit of melanin in their skin.

Until I find me one... I decided to compile a list of 5 people that I would like to be friends with, you know... just in case they read my blog and would like to be my friend as well...lol.

(Disclaimer... I have no idea if any of these people aren't regular white, so excuse me if one or more is Italian, Jewish, etc.)

1. Ellen Degeneres -

I freakin love this chick. Hands down she is my favorite lesbian, and seriously, what kinda person are you if you don't have a lesbian friend. Especially one as fun and free spirited as Ellen. I have to dance with this chick before I die.

2. Lily Allen -
I know she's british, but who said foreigners can't count. Have you heard her new CD? If you haven't you are playing yourself. Now I have been trying not to curse in 2009 but Lily told me that its okay to in certain circumstances because this is my jam.

I love this chick because she doesn't hold her tongue about anything and I know she would never bull shi*t me. With that same token though, she looks like she has a smart a$$ mouth and we would probably get into it all the time, and then like 2 hours later make up...lol.
Plus she straight called out men that aren't good in bed.
"I’m not going to suffer with a man who doesn’t care about giving me pleasure." The singer tells Spin magazine, she blames decades of women faking orgasms for giving men the idea they’re OK in bed: "I think the orgasm problem is as much women’s fault as men’s. We fake orgasms, which gives men the impression that what they are doing is sufficient, which, quite frankly, it isn’t."

3. Kendra Wilkinson

The chick is a die hard football fan. She can rock with me any day of the week. Plus she's not the prissy snooty type like most of the others that live with Heph.. She's cool as hell, knows how to party, and she's not a dumb broad like the majority of them airheads in the Playboy Mansion.

4. Pink -

I have been riding with this chick since she actually rocked the pink hair. Her new album Funhouse gets heavy rotation. Why did I ever like you is my favorite. I swear I could have wrote this song myself.

I love her because I know that if we ever got in a tussle, she would have my back. Part of me even feels like she would be the reason we got into the tussle in the first place.

5.Kate Hudson -

I love her personality, the roles she plays, as well as how she is always effortlessly fly. She isn't always in front of the spotlight, doesn't frequent every red carpet possible just 'cause, and she seems genuine all the time. Plus she is goofy as hell, as am I.

Honorable Mention

Brittany Daniel -

Just because I got a hunch that this chick grew up in the hood...lol; Plus she looks fly as hell with short hair and if I can have a white BFF that can rock the short do as fly as me, we're going to be hella fierce...lol.

So if you could be the BFF of any famous white chick,
who would it be and why?


Bella February 18, 2009 at 10:23 AM

the first paragraph cracked me up because im white... im from NY...and MY name is Colleen... and i will tear a peanut butter n fluff samich UP. lmao

p.s. i wanna be friends with Pink too.

Myowne February 18, 2009 at 10:33 AM

One of my best sister friends is a white woman with blond hair and blue eyes named Toya. There is no one that is famous out there that could possibly have my back like this chick has and does, and I have her back too. Yes, her real name is Toya and yes, she grew up in Grand Rapids just like me. I love her dearly. Real friends come in many color-coated packages. BTW, I like Pink too. She would have been fun to hang around with in my hey-day...and even now when I just want to do some thangs...

Beautifully.Conjured.Up February 18, 2009 at 10:40 AM

I would be BFF with Katy Perry and Kelly Clarkson because both of them seem to be down to earth yet can have a good time. Plus, I love their music.

StarzGazR February 18, 2009 at 10:46 AM

I am sooo feeling this post!! I know i hardly ever comment but you and i agree on the whole white BFF thing!!

I completly agree with you on:
Ellen Degeneres- SHE SHOULD SOOO be a character on the L word!!

Kendra Wilkinson- she's like the realest and prettiest playboy bunnie there is!!!

I dont know why i had never heard of Lily Allen but thanks fr putting me on- i'm feeling her son!!

and kate hudson is like the most down to earth white girl out in hollywood =)

Jada February 18, 2009 at 10:56 AM

Eb and her 2520's! My best friends in grade school were two 2520's. Amber (3rd grade) and Brandy (4/5th grade). Those were my girls true blue!

But I never really thought about it as an adult as I think a lot of us become conditioned to hang out with those who look like or similiar to us.

Now...I love me some Kathy Bates though. I think she would rock as a friend/confidant.

BTW...I know you're a music fiend. I'm sitting here listening to some old Teedra...do you know where I can find some of her newer music?

Amber-Alert February 18, 2009 at 11:28 AM

im sorry u said colleen and all i could think of was the white lady in my office who has all of 5 teeth i got distracted lol lol i would be friends with pink any day...pink holla at me!!! but i'd be friends with jennifer aniston just cuz she seems lonely and needs a good laugh lol....but for real kate beckinsale (is that how u spell it) i just like her for some reason

The Jaded NYer February 18, 2009 at 11:32 AM

Well I do have white friends, plenty of them, but if I could choose famous white ladies:

Lily Taylor
Parker Posey
Minnie Driver
Ani DiFranco
Janeane Garofalo
Shannon Doherty (she'll definitely have my back in a fight! lol)
Winona Rider (she got the 5-finger discount, yo! HA)
Jennifer Jason Leigh
and yeah, Ellen 'cause she's mad cool!

I think that's it for now LOL

ShellyShell February 18, 2009 at 11:52 AM

My bff is white! I've known her since Pre-school and our bdays are two days apart! We talk everyday! My other cool chicks name is Colleen met her the first day of 8th grade!

Is that Brittany Daniel or her twin with the short cut? She has an identical twin sister.

I would be friends with Pink cause she seems like cool people. She likes to chill, drink and like you said I'm sure she'd have your back in a fight!
Also with Kim Kardashian. Not for the smarts but for that fact that chick looks fierce everytime you see her!

Alexandra Wentworth she's married to George Stephanopoulos who was a Clinton Advisor and host "This Week." She's an actress and comediene and appears a lot on Oprah's live panel on Fridays. She seems silly and tells it like it is! I think her and I would have fun over a few martinis!

Of course Ellen. She's just so damn silly! I love it!

Anonymous February 18, 2009 at 12:09 PM

"Fuck You" is my new fav song!

I would definately be friends with Kendra and Pink. Kendra does NOT play about her football and Pink says whatever she feels, both of which describes me.

& Gwen Stefani because she seems cool and her style is out of this world

IntrospectiveGoddess February 18, 2009 at 12:29 PM

I always liked Ellen too, I really like that British actress thats in that movie Confessions of a shopaholic she seems mad coo

Oh and Sandra Bullock I love her acting and she just seems like a real coo person I would want her to be my friend!

Sherri February 18, 2009 at 12:35 PM

I loooove Ellen too!
how the the heck do u get cabs in NYC without white friends? lol

how've u been?

Meshia February 18, 2009 at 12:49 PM

I have to admit, I fuckin love Pink.

TravelDiva February 18, 2009 at 12:58 PM

This is a funny post.

Hmmm. Leah Remini from King of Queens and J Lo's current BFF. I've seen her in interviews and she seems real and has a kind of dry, sarcastic wit that would crack me up.

Eb the Celeb February 18, 2009 at 1:00 PM

@bella - That is too funny... you look latina in your pic... I thought the only white reader I had was Melody.Darlene... I used to love me some PB & Fluff... so much that her mom used to put 2 in her lunch so that I could have one.

@myowne - lmao at your white friend name being Toya

@Starz - Happy to put you on to Lily... I love her!

@jade - what is 2520?

@jaded - daaaaaang your list is long...lol

@Shelly - Fo Real, Brittany has a twin? I did not know that so it may be her...lol

and I know I would have to slap the ish outta Kim if she was my BFF... but her sister Khloe, me and her could rock hard body.

@lady C- yeah Gwen is a good one too!

@Sherri - LMAO... Chicks... no matter what color you are.. dont have trouble getting cabs in NYC... its only the bruthas

Anonymous February 18, 2009 at 1:27 PM

I would kick it with Ellen too. Ellen just so cool.

My other choice is the girl from "Boy Meets World" who played the character Topanga. She looks food now!!

Ms. Liryc February 18, 2009 at 1:34 PM

Eb, I can definitely relate to this post. I know what you mean. I have some friends of the lighter or rather fairer nation and they don't seem like the white girls that I thought they were.

I would love to hang with pink, I have loved her since that "there you go" Single.. and have rocked with her since, and I loved britney since her Sweet Valley High days, I think I could rock with a chick like that.. totally my kind of girl to hang with..

If I could hang with another one it would be Lauren Conrad... I love her style and she seems like she's just the cutest little thing.. Also it would let me get to meet Brody Jenner who is so freakin sexy, but that's another story..

The Second Sixty-Eight February 18, 2009 at 2:01 PM

Pink and Ellen are the chicks! I could hang with them myself. I suspect you are right about Brittany Daniel too.

Eb the Celeb February 18, 2009 at 2:54 PM

@ShellyShell - Ok I did some research... Are they really identical? If so I cant tell them apart so I'm almost positive that the short hair pic is brittany... here are a couple pics of them together and I can so tell which is which. The twin's name is Cynthia



@Epsi - Tapanga is pretty chunky now I thought. But I always loved her too.

Tuotierugif >^..^<© February 18, 2009 at 3:11 PM

I would hang with all of then except kendra....lmao I'm a hater I know...;)

Southern Girl February 18, 2009 at 4:40 PM

I like this list, and it's funny because Brittany Daniels has a twin sister.

The F$%K it List February 18, 2009 at 4:42 PM

I have tons of white friends, and I love them like cook food. My girl Stacy we worked in hell together and we speak daily, I wish she'd come home, damn TN

Now for famous white friends: I'd definitely say Ellen like everyone else. She's so down to earth.

Pink because I know she could so be from Brownsville with that attitude.

Christina Applegate, who doesn't love Kelly Bundy! and now Samantha Who? She's tough and honest. I feel like she would ask me those silly girl questions, and I'd laugh.

but the friends I do have are the bestest ever!

ok that's all for now. Work to do!

Anonymous February 18, 2009 at 4:49 PM

25/20 is for white people. Y is the 25th letter of the alphabet and T is the 20th letter. 25/20=YT Get it?! lol

I love love love Pink. She's is a friend in my head. I could hang with Kendra and Ellen.

I could also be friends with Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian. Kim would get on my nerves. Plus I want Reggie!

CC February 18, 2009 at 6:36 PM

I got a few white gal pals but none so tight their true blue and tight like glue. I'd like to be pals with someone like Ellen Page from Juno. I like the smart asses like myself.

Ms. Independent February 18, 2009 at 6:44 PM

I definitely think Ellen is a cool white chick. I'd want to chill with her.

Also Angelina Jolie is gonna make my list too.

The singer JoJo she's kinda young but her voice is bangin and she seems cool.

Sandra Bullock...I'm not sure why but I think I'd like to kick it with her.

Miss BB is... February 18, 2009 at 8:48 PM

Ellen for sure and Scarlett Johansenn b/c she seems really snazzy and I like that in my friends.

Something about that Kate Hudson that makes me raise an eyebrow.

Oh yeah...

I like Anne Hathaway and Nicole S. from The PCD.

DollFace February 18, 2009 at 10:12 PM

My white BFF would be Rachel McAdams! There is something about that chick that I LIKE!!!

suga February 18, 2009 at 11:19 PM

Ive always had white friends, especially in jr high and at my first full time out of college. One was named Cathy and she was a freakin' riot (even though she claimed being 1/4 mexican...which i think was a lie)!!

I'd love to kick it with Pink but that chic from the playboy mansion is too much of a ditz for me to deal with.

Even though she's actually South African, I love love love Charlize Theron.

Smarty Jones February 18, 2009 at 11:26 PM

Hmmm, if I had to pick just a couple, it would definitely be:
* Ellen DeGeneres, because she's so damn cool and really doesn't care what she says. She seems to be a really genuine person.
* Reese Witherspoon because she seems funny as all hell and I am quite sure we would hit it off great!
* Sandra Bullock because she seems to be crazy as all hell!
* Kathy Griffin, because, well, she's Kathy Griffin
* Amanda Bynes because she seems to be a sweet, funny person. Well, she makes me laugh anyway
* Leah Remini, but wait, is she Italian?

Anonymous February 19, 2009 at 12:47 AM

either brittany spears or Demi Moore

grown February 19, 2009 at 12:58 AM

Ellen is good peoples.

I like Angie Jolie. She seems to have "ethnic tendencies" so we'd probably get along well. And she needs a black friend so someone could finally take a comb to Zahara's head.

But I wouldn't take my man around her. I ain't no fool.

Angel February 19, 2009 at 4:54 AM

Id also choose Sandra Bullock as if I was white thats what Id like to look like.

Pink definately!!

mp1 v.8.0 February 19, 2009 at 4:52 PM

i thought pink was hot when i was younger.

i still think pink is hot to this day.

that is all.

faith February 19, 2009 at 5:58 PM

Peanut Butter and Fluff is the business. i looooove me some Ellen Degeneres. She can dance her lil' behind off. My white chick BFF would either be Jessica Biel or Britney Spears.

{Diamond} February 19, 2009 at 9:27 PM

It would, no doubt, be Ellen Degeneres. She is too hip! lol

clnmike February 21, 2009 at 8:35 AM

Lill Allen is the ish.

Im jacking this one.

Deutlich February 22, 2009 at 10:37 AM

The lighter nation?

I have never heard that used before.... and I all kinds of love it. I might have to adopt it.

Eb the Celeb February 23, 2009 at 12:28 PM

@Southern Gal- Thx for hipping me to game

@Ms independent - yeah I like Jojo... she's never going to blow though

@Oyin & Faith - Fo real.. Britney? She would get on my damn nerves I already know.

@Deutlich - I cant even remember why or when I started saying that. I made it up one day randomly and it stuck. You can surely spread the word about it...lol

Dope Fiend February 23, 2009 at 3:24 PM

yeah, me and pink can be best buddies!

Athena Nike February 23, 2009 at 6:57 PM

Enjoy your blog
Angelina Jolie(though my Ex was adamant there is some black in her, that 1 drop allowing him to lust for her without guilt)
Toni Collette
Sheryl Crow
I can't be around silly white women...

The Girl From Park Heights February 24, 2009 at 12:29 AM

I very obviously fucks with the lighter nation literally myself and love me some Ellen and Lily (just got her new album and am rocking it out).

As for my BFF, I've always loved Gwen Stefani. Even though she's from Orange County, she just blends right in with us and I love her style and creativity.

Also Bethanny from Real Housewives of NY, she's down.

T.C. February 24, 2009 at 9:05 AM

it would definitely be PINK she is just that type of chick that i love to hang around, real, down to earth, keeps it 100 and is loyal if she messes with you then she messes with you period the end...

i dig many of the folks on this list as well...esp lily and ellen

Funms-the rebirth February 27, 2009 at 2:31 AM

it would be Ellen..........gosh i love her so much. she makes life seem like so much fun and for a white woman, she sure can step

I.Am.Spoken.Word. June 19, 2009 at 1:00 AM

Haha....this was funny...my closest friend is white. You gotta have a posse of white friends...it's a must.
