Over the past few weeks, I’ve heard of and come across certain stories that make me wonder, “What the heck were you thinking?!” One of them is the story of Desmond Hatchett, a 33 year old Knoxville man that has fathered 30 (yes, you read correctly THIRTY) children with 11 different women. Mr. Hatchett has asked the state of Tennessee to assist him in his child support payments because he can’t afford it anymore. I not only blame him, I fault these women. When I ventured into internet dating, a man messaged me that had 7 children. I quickly deleted his message without responding and never looked back. (Crazy thing, he also messaged my sorority sister (in a completely different state than me), too, but that’s a post for a different day.) What made woman number 6 or 7 (let alone 10 and 11) think, “Oh, he’s a catch, he’s cute-let me go ahead and sleep with him”? I swear, people are stupid. I tell my friends this, but I’ll share this with you all, too. People, America, my SGITC readers-think about the person you’re about to sleep with. Could you see yourself having a child with this person? Could you imagine this person being in your life forever? If not, keep it in your pants!!!! I honestly feel sorry for these children. This has to be the most disgusting thing I’ve seen in a long, long time.
For my fellow “Basketball Wives” viewers, how many of you all wanted to slap Kesha last week? Yes, Tami was wrong and WAY out of order, but why was Kesha acting like a punk? UGH!!! I was so disgusted watching that whole episode. And now Tracey Edmonds (ex-Mrs. Babyface) and Shaunie want to put this mess on the big screen??? #icant Who is going to pay to watch these chicks in a movie theater? Not I. I feel like these reality shows have gotten out of hand. And to show how these little girls are looking up to these reality stars…I have started watching “Tanisha Gets Married”. (Don’t judge me.) Tanisha was a cast member on “The Bad Girls Club” and has gone on to host the BGC reunions and other shows on Oxygen. During last week’s episode, a little girl went up to Tanisha to get her autograph and told her, “When I grow up, I want to be on ‘The Bad Girls Club’.” Tanisha quicky corrected the girl and say, “No, you don’t!” Let this be a lesson to all little girls and young ladies in the world-even the women who are ignorant, crazy, and deranged on these shows want you to strive for more.
UPDATE: Can I also add that I’m quite perturbed that Tia Mowry AND Pooch Hall are leaving “The Game”??? So, I guess this means the show will have it’s last season next year. It’s been real.
I’m not a lawyer (even though I had hopes of being one until I turned 23), but I don’t care what anybody says, George Zimmerman needs to stand trial. If he had stayed in his car, Trayvon Martin might be alive today. The media needs to let authorities do their job. But I will say this will be tried in the case of public opinion before it gets to a courtroom. And I know he has a family and other loved ones, but if your brother, son, husband, or whatever did something wrong, you need to let him know he was wrong-end of story.
That’s all I have for today. Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city!
