Larry Elder Has Something To Say About This Sterling Situation…

…and I, for one…am confused…

 

^^ Well, actually no…that’s not why…but carry on…

 

^^ WUT.

^^I’m sorry, what.

^^ Nobody ever said it was.

What’s…happening, here?

Yes, that’s what this is.  Pathetic. Another user mentioned that he is comparing apples and oranges.  And…that is absolutely correct.  Like, what? Another user also corrected him with the fact that it was Dennis Rodman who made the comments, NOT Isiah Thomas.

The least he could do while spewing out this crap is get his fact straight.

Porsha Williams Reveals Physical Abuse In Marriage

Porsha Williams spoke with Access Hollywood today about her new single and revealed physical abuse within her marriage to Kordell Steward. When I saw this the ONLY thing that came to my mind was the fact that I am not surprised.  Like, at all.

Abuse. Physical abuse.  Yeah. There were several different occasions that this happened. When you’re in an abusive situation, it kind of just builds, and it starts to get worse and worse. And people ask me, ‘why didn’t you tell anybody or call the police?’ or what have you. I just thought that I could make it better. I honestly thought after each situation that I would change this or I would change that, and therefore the outcome wouldn’t be the same. It doesn’t work like that.

I’m still realizing now that a lot of what happened, it wasn’t my fault.

Unfortunately, Porsha’s response is one that is very common for women in domestic violence situations

When we were going through the divorce process, we had to sit in deposition hearing, and he didn’t deny it. A lot of women who are in situations like I was in, I wanted to make it better. I was praying every day. I was cooking. I was smiling. The outside appearance was as if nothing was happening. Even though you’re being abused, you still love that person, you’re just trying to love them through it. And you’re trying to pray them through it and you’re not realizing that you can’t change a person, they have to change themselves.

I never went to the hospital. I never reported anything. There were [visible injuries], but I’ll tell you the ones that have stuck with me the most is the mental abuse. I had so much pride in being a wife and being a mother and what that meant to me was big. So for me to be told I was lazy, and that I was stupid and that I wasn’t good enough and that nothing I could do was right, that was really, really hard for me…When someone is constantly ridiculing you, I’m always trying to live up to what that person thinks of me, it’s hard.

If you watched the show then you know that Porsha took her role as a wife very seriously.  You could tell that she took pride in being a good wife, and hopefully someday a good mother.

We were a married couple so of course we had sex, if that’s what you are asking, but it did change. But when you are in a relationship and someone is being controlling and they are using that as power; they will use money, they will use sex, they will use anything to make you feel as though you aren’t worthy of better. And for me in the marriage, I thought I had no self worth. It wasn’t until I got out of the marriage that I realized that I am very valuable, I bring a lot to the table, I’m smart, beautiful and I am a great wife and I’ll never accept that again. EVER.

 

I’m glad that she has realized her worth!  Again, this situation is NOT surprising to me.  Not at all. The more Kordell talked, the more you could tell that he is one of those men who felt entitled and who more than likely treated Porsha like property. I can’t really put my finger on it, but there was just something there that screamed “something ain’t right.” That, plus the way Porsha was overselling their marriage was a huge red flag that something was terribly wrong.

But you know what the crazy thing is?  Even after he kicked her out, she was still in that office with the lawyer trying to work it out.

Ladies, a man who puts his hands on you is not a display of love.  Ever. It’s not.  Know that.

NBA Players Threatened to Boycott THE LEAGUE if Adam Silver Went Easy on Donald Sterling

Oh I am so glad this happened.

The NBA Players Association threatened to boycott the league if swift, punitive action wasn’t taken against Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling for racist comments he made against African-Americans, the players said today.

Roger Mason, the NBPA vice president, described a league-wide phone call that took place Monday night among players and league executives in which the players had threatened to walk if NBA Commissioner Adam Silver went easy on Sterling.

Earlier today, Silver announced the NBA had banned Sterling for life and asked the Board of Governors to force a sale of the team.

“We had a call with the commissioner, with the executive committee representatives [of the Board of Governors], and with players across the league, and the commissioner asked us what our views were,” Mason said today. “We made it clear the players were ready to boycott.”

{via ABC News}

This boycott was set to start tonight.  Not JUST Clippers players, but players ACROSS THE LEAGUE.

Of course, the biggest issue is that even with the lifetime ban in place, Donald Sterling still owns the Los Angeles Clippers. Mason made comments on that as well.

“I’m happy to come here and say today we’re happy with the decision but not content yet,” Mason said. “We want immediate action, we want a timetable from the owners when this vote [to force a sale of the Clippers] is going to happen. We feel confident that this is something that can be handled quickly.”

Kevin Johnson, mayor of Sacramento,  said the players spoke with him.

“The players asked me to represent them and they said to me, Mayor, we want you to tell Commissioner Silver three things are important to us: number one, that immediate action is taken, number two, that we need the players voice to be there, a collective voice, we need a seat at the table, and thirdly we want the maximum allowable punishment under the bylaws of the constitution, that there must be a change in ownership,” Johnson said to applause.

I absolutely love this.  Sometimes we are quick to judge and come to conclusions without knowing the entire story.  I will admit I am one who did this in this case. All while conversations were being had about what the players *should* be doing, those men were handling their business in a professional manner in the background.

Salute to the players, and everyone else who took action to make sure this situation wasn’t ignored THIS TIME.

Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion (Part 2 Review)

I appreciated this Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion.  Mainly because Cynthia FINALLY got a voice.

NeNe

-I’m glad that she let Kenya know that she violated Porsha.

-I’m here for NeNe getting Kenya together, guys. The look on her face after Kenya said, “Don’t make me call Marlo” was of pure stank and disgust.

-NeNe is a robot. She has zero emotion. She cares about nobody (not any adult at least).  DEFINITELY not any of these women.

-Oh did y’all catch Andy check her real quick (“We do give a sh*t and you’re on a show so….”)? YASSSSS Andy! Don’t you forget from where your (consistent) checks come from, ma’am!

-NeNe keeps on saying she is an excellent friend. WHERE ARE THE RECEIPTS, MA’AM!!!!!

Kenya

-I actually don’t know what to say about her.  She is ridiculous, delusional, and sooooo full of shyt.

-Kenya has WAY too much that can be thrown up in her face for her to be so messy, hateful, and just plain mean.  All of these women are talking to her like she is the scum of the earth and she can’t even come back with anything.  Ma’am, the skeletons in your closet probably outnumber ALL of these women’s TOGETHER.  You really should be the nicest person on this planet.

-“Well the moose has spoken, so.” <— The best thing she said all show.

Cynthia

-Look at her drinking the sweetest kool-aid out of Kenya’s ass.

-This scene where she says NOTHING when NeNe calls her HUSBAND a bitch STILL baffles me.

-“It’s to the point where people think I live up NeNe’s ass, basically.  That’s how good of a friend I’ve tried to be to her.” <— STOP IT TODAY!  That is NOT the look of a good friend! That is the look of a weak woman who REFUSES to stand up to someone even when they are DEAD WRONG!

-I’m with NeNe on this situation with Cynthia.  If you’ve squashed it, you don’t get to come back and get all mad again cause now people are seeing that you are ridiculously weak and won’t even stand up to NeNe for your HUSBAND.  No. You moved on and accepted that WEAK apology from NeNe, ma’am.  Should’ve dealt with it properly then.

-But I also agree with Cynthia.  NeNe can tell Cynthia that she’s wrong, but when the tables turn it’s a problem. <— Which is why Cynthia should’ve chunked the deuce at this friendship a looooong time ago.

-Ugh. Now I feel bad for her (these tears). I really do believe that she considered NeNe to be a friend, but she’s just GOT to get a backbone man.

-“I don’t want her to *feel* for me, I want her to RESPECT me.” – That sentence, complete with the look on her face when she said it, is the Cynthia that I need to see.  That right there.

-LOOK AT CYNTHIA!!!!! YASSSS!

-“I miss NeNe, but I’ll be okay.” <— Yes, Cynthia.  Yes.

Kandi

-“All my life I had to fight” <– LOL

-Kandi and all of this crying when she talks to/about her mom. *rolls eyes* Talking about her hurt feelings.  Girl your mom is a TRIFLIN broad who will continue to wreak havoc on your grown life….CAUSE YOU LET HER.

-Even now she is shading Kandi and her(now) husband. I can’t do this.  There is no way. No.

Mama Joyce

-I could tell, from the FIRST word out of her evil little troll mouth, that this here woman is not well.  At least bought a new shiny wig for the reunion.

-Wait. Mama Joyce has a Twitter? O_o

-Y’all.  She is an embarrassment.  If that was my mom I would’ve told Andy to excuse us cause we need to go have a talk in the back.

-“Do you work now?”  “Oh no, I don’t have to.” <– Y’all.  Seriously.  I actually don’t know what to say.  Is she trying to show out cause she’s on the show?  What is this?  You’re BRAGGING because your child takes care of you? I mean, I would take care of my mom too but there WOULD need to be some humility in there somewhere. I mean wow.

-The slit on her dress showing her thigh meat is offending me.

-Somebody tell this broad that “going through” a lot for your kids DOES. NOT. GIVE. YOU THE RIGHT to act like a complete ass.  Ugh.  I want Andy to escort her out right now cause Kandi sure can’t do anything with her.

-Isn’t this woman like 83? Sitting up here trying to get hand claps and cosigns from the peanut gallery?  I can’t with her.

Phaedra

-“If he strayed, it wasn’t with you, bound woman.”  <– LISTEN!

-She didn’t contribute to this hour but these looks and giggles she gave almost killed me.

HOLD UP!  It looks like next week’s show is about to be FIYA!!! YASSSS!!!!
