I can’t do the happy dance while typing… or wait, maybe I actually can. (Hey, multi-tasking is my second name). I won’t even get into how absolutely thrilled I am about the renewal of my new favorite show for a second season, because you got a pretty clear idea how much I love Necessary Roughness when I had the chance to share my pre-finale interview with the super bright and lively (and yes, handsome!) Marc Blucas and football superstar (and super charming himself) Terrell Owens last Friday. Let’s leave it at this: this show has a perfect combination of my favorite elements. Sports, not too much drama (except for that final cliffhanger), great lines, a great dose of wit and a decent dose of romance that doesn’t overtake the whole show.
I still haven’t recovered from that super sweet in words [what woman wouldn't want a man like Marc Blucas's character Matt to tell her he's wasted a lot of time with the wrong women and now he's ready to be with the RIGHT ONE while looking her in the eye over a romantic dinner?] and super hot in facts [hello 6' 2'' super strong Matt carrying Dani while kissing her and making her fantasies come true.. literally!] reunion between the two of them. It was long overdue and I can’t say it wasn’t worth the wait. Hell, Matt would have had me at “are you in?” last week, but I digress. Dani took a week longer but she saw the light and obviously told him they belong together and she’s just scared because well, he may be a keeper. Hello, Dr. D? You may be the therapist but here’s quick advice: you don’t bump into men like that often. Not even on TV. So waiting, buying time? Not an option. Glad you came to your senses and decided to be with Matt. Now enjoy it because we are not all that lucky! Get it? Good. Also, Callie Thorne? Dead jealous you got to film those scenes with him. And I am not the type who gets jealous. But even I have my limits.
Now, onto the main protagonist of the Necessary Roughness finale AND of the below-attached photos, Mr. Mehcad Brooks. The awfully talented (and gorgeous!) actor was in a great mood as he left the Wendy Williams show in New York today. This of course goes regardless of the gigantic cliffhanger Necessary Roughness left us with last night, with Mr. Brooks’s character Terrence “TK” King being shot by a deranged rival team fan as he went out to his favorite club to celebrate. I think we all know the show wouldn’t be the show without TK, not to mention he’s one of the lead actors, so he WILL be back, but we’re all wondering… how will that happen? And what new challenge awaits Dr. Dani to once again save TK from himself? Those questions shall go unanswered for quite a long time, as USA Network still hasn’t announced the comeback date for Necessary Roughness, but it seems like it won’t be back before next summer. I am about ready to BEG USA Network executives to reconsider this and make it come back in January, when the playoffs are actually taking place? PLEASE think about it, USA Network execs? Respectfully desperate-to-get-more-matt-and-tk-asap me. Oh and, thank you.
Good thing we have Mehcad Brooks looking like nothing can keep him from smiling to keep us entertained meantime. The fact he’s an incredibly smart and humble guy doesn’t hurt either. What? This sounds too good to be true? Well sometimes dreams do transform into reality. So take that, Cinderella! We have Mehcad Brooks!
And while we (im)patiently wait for Season 2 of Necessary Roughness, throw a smile back at Mr. Brooks!
