EYE FOR AN EYE

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now I know I’ve been neglecting you guys and I’m sorry.  My other career has been keeping me busy. There’s something I want to speak on and I know I’m a couple of weeks late but there’s no reason why I still can’t bring this subject up.  Now, I know everyone has seen the last episode of Basketball Wives, Miami (I have to call it that now since it has now franchised….LOL) and the infamous scene where Eric throws a drink in Jennifer’s face.  When I saw the previews I was thinking, he is such a bitch! How dare he throw a drink in her face!  Buuuuuuuut, when I saw the full scene my feelings changed. 

Let me explain to yall the type of person I am.  I believe in equality between all races and sexes (the rules change when it comes to the elderly and the babies).  I believe once you do something to someone that person has a right to now do the same thing to you.  I spoke on the Chris Brown, Rihanna situation briefly…….in no way do I condone domestic violence on anyone’s behalf but if I hit someone I do expect to get hit back, male or female.  No one was there but the two of them and there are rumors that she began hitting him first.  I’ve always hated to see the women who argued with their boyfriends and constantly smacking them up aside their head while their man is yelling “Yo, Go Head” 50 thousand times before he ends up smacking her.  If I hit a man I’m prepared to get hit back and will most likely loose my battle but at least I knew what I was getting into.  Some of you may not agree but that’s just the reality of the situation.

Getting back to the matter at hand……So Jennifer’s punk ass decides to throw a drink at Eric once he gets up and walk away.  If she was going to throw the drink she should have been woman enough to throw it in his damn face.  Eric was probably thinking the same thing I was thinking so he was determined to show Jennifer that he was more of a WOMAN than she was and threw the drink in her face.  I say congrats to you Eric because in some sort of way I saw life coming back full circle.  How many times within the 3 seasons (I think 3) did we see Jennifer bitch out, opted to not throw hands but throw drinks instead at other women?  The other women never had a chance to throw them back at her because she hid behind Evelyn.  In a way this was Karma coming back to slap Jen in the face.  Unfortunately it was done by a scorned man but it was done.  I think it brought her ass down a couple of notches.  

Men don’t for one second think that I’m saying it’s ok to hit your girl and throw drinks in her face.  In this particular instance it was appropriate.  And Ladies don’t you think you can go around hitting men and it’s ok just because you’re a woman.  It’s not ok, now a days they are just as hard on women when it comes to domestic violence as they are with men .  Word of advice from R.L. EVERYONE, KEEP YOUR HANDS TO YOURSELF AND YOUR DRINKS IN YOUR CUPS!

 

 

Risque’s Newest Celebrity Fan!

LOOK OUT! Risque has gained another celebrity stan and this time I happened to snag a very handsome, upstanding young man.  It only makes it better that he’s from my home state of Virginia.  I’m speaking of none other than Mr. Nate Parker.  You may have seen Mr. Parker in a little movie called The Great Debaters, among other great movies.  I had the great fortune of working with him recently and he’s a great down to earth man who reminds me a lot of the characters he portray.  A strong minded indiviual who stands up for his rights and doesn’t have any problems proving his point if you’re wrong.  Enough about him…..LOL

Nate actually asked me for a copy of the book and of course I was happy to give him a copy.  I promised Nate that I wouldn’t post this until he checked out the book and approved and he did!  So thanks Nate!  It was a pleasure working with you, good luck in all your future projects and I hope you enjoy!
