Judge Mooney, Paul Mooney and me...
by Paula Neal Mooney
The Los Angeles Daily News is reporting that Dave Chappelle is hooking back up with his "The Chappelle Show" alum Paul Mooney for a BET pilot called "Judge Mooney," featuring Paul Mooney as the judge.
Paul "Judge" Mooney said the new "Judge Mooney" show will feature him trying real cases, but giving a Paul Mooney-styled version of the events.The new show should be interesting, especially in light of Mooney's vow to stop using the N-word in his routine in the aftermath of Michael Richards' tirade. I followed suit in light of the feedback I received after writing about the whole mess.
I'm not Paul Mooney's daughter!
Judge Mooney should be a good turn for Paul, and me as well, since plenty of folks often find my blog by accidentally typing "Paula Mooney" when searching for the comedian.
Recently, some blessed person even asked if I was Paul "Judge" Mooney's daughter.
How kind of them not to say Paul Mooney's mom, I responded, but set them straight that I'm not at all (that I know of) related to the funny man.
"Aren't you glad you married me?" Mr. Mooney asked me as I chuckled while reading up on the new Judge Mooney show.
That was my husband speaking, not Paul.
"Yep," I answered, thinking way beyond the influx of search-engine traffic headed my way.
I sure am.
