202958
Published on May 13, 2021

Wanda talks about being out in public again, going on a plane for the first time in a while, celebrating Mother’s Day, her mom’s love of casinos, The Wall Street Journal publishing a picture of her at nine years old, her brother Harry being the funniest one in the family, working with Mike Epps on Netflix’s “The Upshaws,” having to shut down in the middle of production because of the pandemic, Kim Fields playing her sister on the show, watching the news less with Trump gone, and Liz Cheney’s great hair.

    One of the funniest women in the industry. Her gig on ‘Old Christine’ was hilarious. So wish that show was still on. Julia Louis-Dreyfus played old Christine. Clark Gregg played her ex. Best cast too.

    Funny, I received pajamas and a mug, but the words on the mug were: Promoted to be a grandmother, Est.2021. I read it without paying much attention to the words, I just said thank you, I break enough of them so it’ll be useful. My daughter looked at me and said, please read it again..then my jaw dropped..
    She is married for a few years now, and I should have expected it, but all of a sudden I was looking at her, you are my baby..:)

    I accidently discovered Wanda on YouTube in it’s early days when they would copy something from the 70s, 80s etc. TV, movies and specials and paste it into a video. I can still remember it now and she had a nice black leather jacket on for the set. She is a comedic assassin (thank you Mr. Seinfeld). Two words from that set: ‘drink man’.

    OLD, SCHOOL- FAMOUS “CELEBRITIES,” -Why are you being, pseudo- professionals? It has been, so long. You’re, annoying. From the audience- perspective. And, certain- famous, people, at, the Top- find you annoying- in agreeance, with their audience, and their fans. I am, still- a loyal, fan. Everyone else- is becoming- permanent- loyal fans. Or, permanent- enemies. Hello, it’s, ME!, Brittney Lee Hill Collier (Age: 33. Born March, the 12th, 1988.). My Destiny, is to be, a famous, British actress, and a Royal, for the, United Kingdom. To date, I figured out that, Henry Cavill (Age: 38. He is the famous, British actor, who plays, Superman. He played, Superman, in, “Man of Steel,” which came out in the year, 2013), Tom Ellis (Age: 42. He is the famous, British actor, who plays, Lucifer, on the American, television show, “Lucifer.”), Russell Brand (Age: 45. He is the famous, Comedian, and British actor, who married, Katy Perry), Johnathan Rhys Meyers (Age: 43. He is the famous, Swedish actor, famous for starring, on the show, “The Tudors.” He is also, very famous, for starring, in the movie, “Match Point.”), and Louis Garrel (Age: 37. He is the famous, French actor, exalted, for starring, in the movie, “Ma Mere.” He is also, very famous, for starring, in the movie, “The Dreamers.”), are supposed to be my, Husbands. That means, all 6 of us, have it in our, Destiny, to be the, Kings, and Queen, of the, United Kingdom. Gosh, I’ve been trying to figure out, which famous, White actor, was my Husband (or, Husbands), since the year, 2011, or so. 😀 HAHAHA! So now, I’ll be traveling, back, to the, United Kingdom, from Fullerton, C.A. (Fullerton, C.A., is in the, Country, of, the United States, within the, County, of, Orange.). My son, Reign Aston Disick, who is, 6 years old, and born in the year, 2014 (he is popular for the show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians. He was, Scott Disick, and Kourtney Kardashians, son.), will be joining us, in the, United Kingdom, as well. I went to the, United Kingdom, in 2020, during the, current, Global Pandemic. FACT. I’ve known the, Global Pandemic, was fake, since, it began. FACT. Now that I know who my, Husbands, are, I just have to wait, a month, exactly, and then I can travel, back, to the, United Kingdom, for the final time, to meet, and marry them. I will be, meeting them, in the Borough of, Essex. YAY, for me 😀 ! I have, 5, Hot Husbands. I’m so excited! They are, super sexy: beautiful, fun, wild party guys, intense, confident, cocky, and genius, Celebrity. I am lucky. I know (already), that they will, value, Monarchy, and Tradition, just as much as, I do, by the time I finally meet them in person. They better <3! Laugh out Loud. They’re my dream, Men. Tom Ellis, has 3 daughters, they are named, Florence, Nora, and Marnie. So, they are my, daughters! I have 3, daughters, and one, Son- already, how wonderful, to know! They have been making me so, proud 😀 . I made them this way. Their ages range, from 6 to 19. I, HATE, their current, Stepmom, Meghan Oppenheimer. She is, not, good for them. She has been, a bad person, and ugly, inside, and out, her whole, life. She is a, Nerd. She is, young, in her, 30’s, like me, and a, Classic Nerd. She is a, gawker (Defined: to stare, stupidly; gape. An awkward, foolish, person. peer, ogle, gaze, goggle, rubberneck). She stares, too hard. I am, Cool. I have always, been, popular, super social, well loved, and loving- outgoing, and a, crazy, truly wild, party girl. I am, a, Hippie. The type of Hippie, I am, is, Raver. I am a, Raver. We partied, hard, in my 20’s! We still party, hard, in various places. It’s, awesome! We are awesome! HAHAHAHA! I, AM, WHITE. I am, a, Traditional, White American, Female- from the, Deep South. My skin, is, light brown, so you can tell, that I am, a part, of the, Black, African American, community. However, I, AM, WHITE. WHITE, people, are, My people. They are my people. I am, White. That means, I am, NOT, a, Negro. I am not a, Negro. So, do not, pretend, that I am, Black, or a, Negro; Ever. If you do, you will not survive, this life. My story, is very interesting, so far, isn’t it? And, I still, haven’t even gotten out into the world! I haven’t even met, my Husbands, yet? What the heck, World? Beginning, in the year, 2000, Human Society, itself, has been, disobedient, disoriented- in disarray, and purposeless. That is why, I have not been, able, to live out my, Human Destiny. I, AM, happy- that I have the money, and the ability- as a, Middle class, American citizen. WITH FATHER GOD, JESUS CHRIST, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT, AT THE HELM- WE, ARE THE ONES, BRAVE ENOUGH, TO MAKE THIS, HUMAN WORLD: TRADITIONAL, NORMAL, PLEASING, AND BEAUTIFUL, AGAIN! MONARCHY! The answer, all along, was, MONARCHY! All other, Humans, may join me, as well 🙂 . I will see you guys out there! My life plan, is in progress, currently. I’ll be home, soon! At the, Top! I will not rush. I’m taking my time. This will be my, final voyage, so it has to go perfectly, one time. Note: I, AM, the, ONLY, person, who, is meant, to marry, Men of the opposite race, and from a different, Kingdom. -Brittney Lee Hill Collier, Thursday, May, the 13th, 2021. 9:38 p.m.
