Even though I touched on a lot of things during last week’s “This Week in the News”, there were a number of things I failed to mention. So today’s post is going to cover those topics and my thoughts on them.
Even after the issue with Rihanna, I was still a Chris Brown fan. He admitted his mistake, took anger management, and took his punishment. (Plus, if we can forgive R. Kelly and Michael Vick, why is Chris Brown different.) And let’s face it-the boy is uber-talented! So imagine EVERYONE’s shock when C. Breezy lost it on GMA with Robin after she asked him about Rihanna. (If you didn’t see the video of the interview, watch it here.) IMHO, I don’t think she went in that hard. Chris needs to learn to control his temper. And someone made a really good point-Ike got questioned til the day he died about his hitting Tina, so Chris isn’t going to be any different. If he didn’t want to address it, he should have told Robin that when he got a preview of the questions. Unfortunately, this is going to be following Chris as long as he stays in the limelight. I am anxious to find out what will happen on his appearance tonight on “Dancing with the Stars”.
About 2 weeks ago, I mentioned that Carmelo Anthony may have a love child in NY. Well, my girl LaLa went on Charlamagne’s morning show to address the rumors, how she’s done with having kids, and discussed some other things. One thing that I can say about LaLa is that she always stays professional and diplomatic, even when we think she should throw people under the bus! 🙂
Lastly, after a bitter divorce and a long custody battle, Dwyane Wade won sole custody of his sons. As I stated in a previous post, we shouldn’t necessarily applaud fathers who are in their children’s lives, but I will say I’m glad he fought for his sons. How many men, especially professional athletes, fight for SOLE custody of their children? Not too many I know. And the good thing is that Wade wants the boys to have a great relationship with their mother, so I hope they are able to be adults and co-parent.
That’s it today, folks! What else happened last week that I missed? Or what’s happened in the past few days that you want to share? Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city!
PS Can I say I HATE Chris Brown’s blonde hair?!? UGH!!!
