Here we go back to Phillipes… Once again, I have never been a fighter and I refuse to start at this age especially on TV. I don’t consider myself a role model but I do know there are young women that watch Basketball Wives. Fighting on TV sends the wrong message to our youth. It is not ok to put your hands on someone and think it is acceptable. There is no reason as grown women we can’t be mature and discuss our feelings without putting our hands on another. Expressing your feeling through violence is WACK!!! For someone whom I have shared many laughs, cries, good and bad times with to say they are going to wait around the corner for me just saddens me. All of this because of what? A blog? We aren’t friends? Isn’t this what you wanted? And yes I think it is only right to pull back from a relationship with someone that works for someone who refers to me as her enemy. That whole situation is just a recipe for disaster and I have enough craziness with my pending divorce to deal with. I haven’t done anything to anyone on Basketball Wives where violence should be the answer. I haven’t slept with anyone’s man or harmed anyone’s family. What does fighting resolve? After the fight, we still aren’t going to be friends. So lets just all be mature here and move on from the pettiness….
Going through a divorce is like experiencing a rebirth. My life is constantly changing which to me is a great thing. I am happy, experiencing new things, meeting new people and trying to build my company. Through my challenging divorce process, my friends have been my rock. My friends from elementary school, high school and college have all remained in my life. These girls were in my wedding and have supported me through the demise of my marriage. One of my best friends since I was 14 is Angela Yee and she is still my ride or die chick to this day! Yes I have met some new friends; don’t we all meet new people as life goes on? I have other friends in the same business that have experienced the same things I have gone through and we have formed a bond. I really don’t see anything wrong with that. We all have a life outside of Basketball Wives. I think it is extremely childish to worry about who is friends with who! Last time I checked I wasn’t in middle school, and if we aren’t friends why do you even care?
I don’t even know what to say about this Kenya and Kesha drama. I don’t have a problem with either of the ladies and I like them both. All this drama is just too silly to me. It a shame that as women of color there is no sisterhood but instead a bunch of catty fights. In every relationship, whether it is a friendship, family or a spouse there are bound to be differences but it’s a shame nobody can get along. It all seems very juvenile to me but I am just in a different space in my life. I just wish everyone can get along but I don’t foresee that happening anytime soon. Very sad…
“Life is too short to waste any amount of time wondering what other people think about you. In the first place, if they had better things going on in their lives, they wouldn’t have the time to sit around and talk about you. What’s important to me is not others’ opinions of me, but what’s important to me is my opinion of myself”- C JoyBell C
Hugs and kisses,
Friends since 14 and counting!!!! I love you ANG!!!
