I am in the mood for some gossip this morning. All food and no work-out can leave us constipated and sick. This year 2013, I can't rememberdoing any post other than Food, Food, Food and Food. Ahn Ahn. I sincerely apologize to any one of wives connection Readers who may have become obessed as a result of reading my Food Diary. When I had a separate Food Blog, things were easier for those who are not really into food and cooking stuff. Ever since I imported the Food Blog( joy Ojay kitchen Diary) into Wives connection. There has been a kind of power struggle.
The food blog has ruled longer than necessary I think. Right now is time to do both, eat and then relax with some juicy Marriage Tip, Parenting Tip, Relationship Tip, Entertainment, Fashion and even *hot gossip.* "why not"?
Back to our own Mercy Johnson, Before Marriage, Mercy was like the most talked about actress in Nigeria. At a point, she was the Most Searched Actress online. I don't know if another has taken that place now. There were a few posts I published here about Mercy and these posts stood as number one on my Most Read Posts for a long time. I had to take them down while doing some Blog Clean-up and Maintenance.
We (myself inclusive) love to just talk about Mercy Johnson. Most times, the reason I decide to see a Nollywood movie is the title. There are some titles I see and just hiss and pass. However, when these funny titles have Mercy Johnson as one of the casts, I sit down and watch. Fortunately for me, however and whatever the title sounds like, Mercy Johnson delivers. She never disappoints. If it meant acting Dumebi the dirty girl, Mercy will come out of herself, transport her whole being into that character and "live" it better than anyone would have imagined.
When I see Mercy cast as a house help I laugh before settling down to watch the movie. Why do I laugh? Mercy will not ACT, she will become the perfect husband snatching house help She will become the Revolutionary house help. She will become the perfect house help that will eventually turn Madam into a beggar. She will act it so well that some of us will watch, think through, and go send our house helps packing. That is how far she can go to affect her fans.
Mercy acts The Married Woman and you are sure to see some truth in her character. sometimes she acts like she is acting you and your husband at home. You watch her act Madam and you just see yourself in there. You relate automatically. She acts The Controlling Wife, and a lot of women see themselves in her acting. She acts The Submissive Wife, and, after watching, you feel so guilty that you go apologizing to hubby for being headstrong and rebellious all these years.
Then, we hear about Mercy's engagement, we read the mails from her hubby's ex-wife to bloggers, and all hell is let lose on Mercy. We totally forget that she had put smiles on our faces. We talk, leave comments, write and even haul insults. Mercy's fans just overnight, turned into her worst enemies, before her Marriage. If not all, then almost everyone believed her husband's ex, and turned their backs against Mercy.

The pregnancy rumors that started immediately after marriage nko? Most People started to wear magnifying lenses when around Mercy Johnson. I guess some ladies may have gone to see their Opticians, to get them cleaner eyes or glasses that can See-through a woman's dress into her bump. I also suspect that some of us may have asked our Doctors to produce Pregnancy Scanning eye glasses that'd enable us see even a day old embryo in her Mother's womb. Why? we wanted to be the first to know when Mercy Johnson is pregnant.
Then, the pregnancy became obvious and we started regular visits to blogs that wrote anything about Mercy Johnson's pregnancy. We searched virtually everywhere for stories about her pregnancy. Those days, when I check my Traffic Sources, I see many who landed at my blog with searches such as; Mercy Johnson is pregnant or not; Mercy Johnson Miscarriage; Mercy Johnson baby sex; Mercy Johnson delivery date and so on. Curiosity!
We just wanted to keep prying and to know a little bit more about the lady that made TV 'fun at home."
Finally, Mercy and her husband make The Famous Trip Abroad. We then cleaned our ears very well and re constructed our "hearing antennas" to be the first to know when she gives birth; to be the first to announce to our friends and Neighbors; To be the first to know whether it's a boy or a girl.
Abi na lie?
