DISCLAIMER: I got a request to do a review of this interview(x…x) & I said would do it because reviews are fun. This review is solely for comedic purposes. I do not claim to know any of the people or their lives that are in/mentioned in this video. If you are easily offended, I suggest you stop reading now. If you already know that this is not your cup of tea then why sip on it? You feel me? Okay.
Recently, Tony has been on what seems to be an Around the World in 80 Days tour where he has appeared fucking EVERYWHERE. Since May 2014, this guy has been working the press HARD. He has been going extremely HARD to stay visible on every screen & source of media that is out there. So in promoting his new show The Divide(airing Wednesdays 9pm on the WeTv), Tony stopped by the Sway in the morning radio show.
I really enjoyed this interview on a whole because it was fun, chill/laid back, informative without being too messy. Now messy is good but too messy requires a clean up. So on a whole with messy(not too messy), this interview was great.
I love that Sway mentioned Ghost but not in the normal asshole way that people mentioned Ghost. Like normally, everyone who mentions Ghost is all I hate you/I’m still mad at you for Ghost/I never liked you because of Ghost. The normal response for me when it comes to how people react to Ghost is
But Sway simply said: “Tony Goldwyn who played the dick.”
To which Tony said: “That’s right I was the dick.”
Tony saying the word dick.
It is then established that Tony in Ghost was: “The dick of all dicks.”
Heather(one of the morning show co-host) told Sway that it is too many women in the room & that he had to use some other language because ”the dick of all dicks" make us ladies feel some type of way. ”The dick of all dicks" to me sounds like his dick game is strong & he the best out there. I’m glad to know that I wasn’t the only one taking the comment for the double meaning that it could have.
Tony made a slight joke with the whole ”dick of all dicks" comment saying that sounded more like Scandal. Everyone laughed & Heather used this moment to try to cop a feel on my bae. Look at the 1:24 mark to see Heather trying to be slick. Heather…
I digress tho. The fact that Scandal was brought up was an amazing segue into the most important question of the interview. Tracy(one of the morning show co-host) says: “This is going to be a keep it real moment. We’re going to go into Scandal real quick because I feel like this is mega accurate if I can say that I can speak for all black women. When Fitz is doing those love scenes with Olivia Pope, we live vicariously through Olivia Pope…”
I just want to say that I feel you & I understand Tracy G. I get it. I swear Tracy was speaking to me on a spiritual level when she asked this question. She was trying to professional but there is really no professional way to say, “Look here Tony, when your Fitz is putting it down with Kerry’s Olivia, every woman in the world want to be Olivia Pope. We is living through Olivia Pope so I’m saying we all fucking you in our minds.”
How can you say that professionally? You can’t so I get it Tracy. Girl, I get it.
Now I was on YouTube watching this video to write this review. I was reading some of the comments & these stuck out to me
ELOISE R ROBERTS 2 days ago:Wonder what Black Woman did Tony Disrobe, not recently according to him.
LovelyEllieL 18 hours ago (edited): Whoever she was, she must have rocked his world! Lol Because his face lit up like a kid in a candy store when Tracy asked him that question. Then, he responded without hesitation or reservation ;) Great question, b/c it confirmed what so many of us suspected all along.
Sonyag 17 hours ago: +LovelyEllieL I thought this for a long time too. There is so much natural chemistry with Tony and any other woman of color that he must have hit it hard in the past. Whoever that woman was, must have changed his universe forever. :)
I would like you all to read the bold & then direct your attention back to the above gif of Tracy asking Tony the question.
“Whoever she was, she must have rocked his world! Lol Because his face lit up like a kid in a candy store when Tracy asked him that question.”
Bitch…did Tony not light up like a Christmas tree? The stories. The stories he must have about being with a chocolate goddess that smells cocoa butter.
They come back from there little break & Tracy continues: “Cause I always like to see how art reflects life, right. Obviously we have seen Fitz, the white man, feel very comfortable disrobing a black woman, Olivia Pope. It makes me feel very special inside…”
Tony answers: “Yes Tony Goldwyn has…”
*you hear someone in the background say “Yes!” & some sound effects*
Basically the church was like…
Tony continues: “Not recently. I’ve been married for a long time so let me just make that clear in case my wife is listening.”
This was my response to that last part.
Now I’m not going to go into it but I say all the time, it is not only how you respond(as in the words you use) but it is also what you choose to respond to. Take of that what you will but the above side eye gif is still my reaction for reasons.
I digress tho. After that was all said & done. Sway says: “Yeah, that blackberry boy, that juice…”
Tony breaks out into his smile laugh & Sway is like: “Tony ma maan…”
I just want to give a shout out to scandalousbazinga for pointing out to me the simple fact that Tony understood the reference. I was just looking at Tony’s face & I just didn’t catch it but once I did it was
But um…Anthony, what you know about that blackberry juice?
Ol’ girl, whoever she was, was just so unforgettable that you remember that juice after all of this time? It wasn’t recently because you have been married for a long time but that Shea butter goddess was just so incredible, that good good was so strong that you remember it many, many years later.
When Tony think about that blackberry juice, he turns into Drake in this gif.
Hold on one second…
So after that the interview goes on and we talk about Scandal & Bellamy Young/Mellie Grant for a little bit. Tony talks about how Mellie was only supposed to be a character for about 3 episodes & then there was going to be a divorce.
I pause the video & just stare at the screen like this for awhile.
Anyway…they go on & Sway is saying how Bellamy Young was on the show recently & he tells Heather to tell Tony what Bellamy did.
Heather says: “She rubbed you Sway. She rubbed your cheek. She gave you a kiss. She rubbed your thigh. She rubbed your shoulder. She rubbed the inside of your thigh.”
Tony replies: “She’s a rubber.”
Other small funny parts for me was at the 7:10, 7:30, & 8:18 marks.
- At 7:10, he did this small recite of what he calls Bellamy’s “nice southern girl”.
- At 7:30, you can tell he was going to say how Mellie was banging Andrew but he caught himself. I think that is why he laughed so hard when Sway was like: “Yeah man, he was banging her out too.”
- At 8:18, Sway had previously said that Tony was going to be acting in The Divide but Tony told him how he was co-creator, producer, & director. Sway says: “Oh! Oh, you balling! You balling now!" & Tony replies: "Hell yeah!”
Just ball on Tony…
So the talk about The Divide & then Heather asked him what he does for fun since he works on a hit show & has just created another show that sounds like it is going to be a hit.
Tony says: “Um…well first of all the fun is the work man. I mean my job is the most fun. I pinch myself every day when I go to work. I can’t believe I get to do this but you know beyond that fun…I try and just…hanging out with my family, I have fun with my wife, my kid, I have two daughters, yeah…”
Me zooming past & not touching the above comment
They go on to mention that he comes from a showbiz family, more on The Divide. Right before they end the interview they take 2 phone calls.
Quincy from Detroit: “How was that first scene kissing Kerry Washington?"
Tony: “Magic, dude. That’s all I can say. Or what do you think? No, it was amazing. Kerry is just…she’s a very extraordinary lady. And um…and she’s beautiful and all the rest of it. So..it’s um..she’s quite a human being to wrap your arms around on a regular basis.”
Sway goes on to say: “Damn. It seems like your relationship is similar to mines and Bellamy’s…”
Earlier in the interview(start at 4:35) Sway said: “If there is anyone that I have had a crush on on that show because I know Kerry well so Kerry is like a buddy, it would be Bellamy Young.”
So when Sway said: ”Damn. It seems like your relationship is similar to mines and Bellamy’s…”
Did he mean…
“she’s quite a human being to wrap your arms around on a regular basis”
I just want to make a note of Sway’s face right after Tony said, “Magic, dude.”
That is all…
The next caller was Garrett from Texas: “I just want to say, Tony…from another white man, I just want to say thank you because now a lot of the black ladies are showing us a lot more love.”
Tony & Sway’s reaction faces to the above statement from Garrett
Like seriously look at their faces. Both of them look so damn joyous. Hands crossed together in the prayer position as they both think about that blackberry juice.
Garrett from Texas: “I just want to say, Tony…from another white man, I just want to say thank you because now a lot of the black ladies are showing us a lot more love.”
Tony: “Really?! Alright!”
Garrett: “Thank you sir.”
Tony: “You’re welcome. You are so welcome.”
Can I just say that I loved Garrett’s comment? I swear I heard the voice of a thousand white men singing Young Jeezy’s Put On in Garrett’s voice. It is like, all Garrett’s life he waited for a chocolate sista to pay him some attention & because of Tony, it was possible. Garrett gone end up naming his next child after Tony & shit.
Then Tony talking about some: ”You’re welcome. You are so welcome." He so welcome Tony? You remembering that blackberry juice again, ain’t you homie? I see you Tony.
All joking aside. I thought Garrett saying thank you to Tony was cute because so many times, people use Scandal as a way to come down on black women who date white men or who are now trying dating outside of their race for the first time. Some people use the Olitz relationship to try to shame black women for dating outside of their race. It irks my soul that black women who choose to date a non-black man is labeled as self-hating or some toy for whoever they are dating. I loved that Garrett, this white man called in to thank Tony for the love that he is receiving from black women. You could just hear in his voice how he is getting more play from black women and it is something that he has wanted for awhile, something that he appreciates. Me personally, I appreciate Garrett’s appreciation. Garrett is in Texas living the life he has always dreamed about. Tony is around making love connections for folks who didn’t even know what their lives were missing.
Just bless Tony…
I bet the Friday after Vermont Is For Lovers, Too aired, Garrett got some much play he thought he was drafted to a team. He thought he made the league.
Oh, Garrett, your life will never be the same. Just ask Sway & Tony about that blackberry juice. They live for it. I heard it makes you look younger. And to some folks it is so good that they never forget the taste even if you haven’t had it in recent years.
