:D Serena looked good and was quite funny on Letterman. He seemed a tad too "fresh" for me, though.!!!:) :) :) :)

He managed to be charming, but was always creepy to me.

Oh, yeah, Dave sure was trying to stir something up between Serena and Venus. I didn't like that "little sister is runnin' her ragged" remark and I don't think Serena liked it either. Overall, Serena was very charming, pretty, and protective of Venus' feelings.

I thought Dave was pretty good, and a bit refreshing, he seemed really into the WTA and the tennis game. he even made a pot shot at the ATP tour. That was cute. I think his remark was beingfunny and honest not trying to stir up trouble.

Serena looked okay with her fashion and all, but sister girl has got to get back to her dark hair. That light blonde is just too much and her complexion doesn't go with the Euro color.

hey dawn :)

I personally think Serena looked fine! Hair color and all. Actually, I think today was the best that I've seen her with the blonde hair. We rarely get to see either sister with their hair down. And her outfit suited her well.

Sometimes Dave can come off as being a bit mean with his jokes, but he was really great with Serena. Overall I liked Serena's appearance on Letterman.

Dave was being dave. If you thought he was being mean, he wasn't. He's not aware of how sensitive he should be to the Williams sister matches etc. issue.

Serena was great. She was very funny, handled herself well. A good talk show guest.

Sorry I didn't see it (way past Grandpa's bedtime) but I agree with Dawn Marie-- this white girl weave doesn't suit Serena nor is it flattering. Maybe if she died her roots the same color as the weave it might look better, in my humble opinion.

Serena's going to wind up hosting one of those talk shows. I don't know if it'll be any good, but her personality works really well on TV. Venus only looks like she's enjoying being in front of the camera about a third of the time. Serena will go serious on you if she doesn't like the question, but basically every minute she's on camera she looks like she's just basking in it.

Some people are comfortable being the center of attention. Some aren't.

I really don't get it. Since when is Venus not comfortable in front of a camera. I have seen her on Jay Leno show, & she looked lovely, & sounded great. i don't think we need to compare those young women.They are both great in their own way. I have seen Venus in many interviews since she came on the tour. A very articulate & confident young lady.

Roseie - I didn't mean to imply that Venus wasn't good on camera. She's great. Personable, informed, well spoken.

But, to use a personal example, I've done a bit of professional acting. My sister refuses to voluntarily get in front of people even for a reading. But everytime she has to do it, (her job requires this) she gets rave reviews. SHe's GOOD at it. She just would prefer not to. I think Venus is like that. Venus herself says she'd rather stay home with a good book, while Serena's more social.

Serena was great!!! The hair color is a bit too much.

Yes, I heard Venus say she likes to be left alone. That's ok.I also see she let Serena bully her a little, I think most things don't bother Venus. I like that about her. She does not crave the spotlight, but if it's there she enjoys it & move on.

Serena is young and she is just doing her thing with her hair. Maybe she is making a social statement about society's obsession with blond hair. Martina Navratilova dyed her hair blond and it is not her natural hair color. Just because you have black skin does not make it wrong to dye your hair blond. The Williams Sisters break old stereotypes, not only on the tennis court, but also on the fashion world.

Beige her roots were dyed this time.:)

My opinion has nothing to do with people who are black with blonde hair. I just think the blonde is way too much and doesn't bring out her true beauty. It's too light. Also I like Venus alot better in front of the camera and during interviews. She also has great fashion sense. .:) I do think in a few years Serena will come out of this Euro phase. It's not like my butt hasn't gone down that YELLOW brick road before.:)

In short, it's nice to see Serena on TV and I am happy for the family.:) GO TEAM WILLIAMS.

I think Serena looked great last night. I love her and Venus' laugh.

I liked her hair because she likes her hair. IMO - she along w/all of her sisters, believes in trying new and different hair and dress styles. This is just a fad Serena is going thru. She knows the real deal. She knows who she is - so whilst she's young - she wants to experiment now and get most of it out of her system.

I love Moms hair any old way - so what can I say? My high school graduation pic showcases me sporting my fine afro. I think Moms knew since she was on her way to Africa, her afro would be a nice choice. The color is her shouting "I'm proud of all the different hair styles my people have and wear." She is making a statement - saying that she loved the old days when wearing afros was the in thing that we all did. At least the ones of us that are older and can remember those days.

Serena is a jewel and Venus is a gem. They both are so quick-witted - and IMO the work was not hard - as it pertained to Serena handling her own last night. She is hanging tough out there in L.A. I'll say - and she held her own w/Dave.

Don't even get me started on whether or not I think she should even be out there like that in hollywierd. That indeed is another topic and discussion for another day.

Otherwise - she done good.

She's become so well-known for it, though. It's almost like the singer "Pink". For the rest of her life, she's going to have to have Pink hair. :(

Come on, why are we bending over backwards on this hair thing? In my opinion it is really too much ... length, texture, colour... it is not as if she even decided to dye her own hair that colour.
Let's not pretend and forget all the 'angst' around hair among black women.
What is wrong with her own hair?
Talk about role models!

Like you said, It's your opinion. Not right or wrong, just your opinion......

By the way, what does Serena's hair color/styles have to do with being a role model?

I agree that the blond hair thing doesn't work... but I've got no idea what hair color would work on her anyway... :(

Maybe something like Venus' would be cool

And why does Letterman have to be kissing all over the women's hands whenever they come on his show? Have you ever seen the level of flirtation he and Janet Jackson often attain when she's there? He irks me. It was a good interview though, I'll give him that much.
