Hello Ladies and Gentlemen and Everything In Between:
I’m writing this on the first day of Summer, and next week, the weather is going to be in the 90’s!!
I know you heard about Chad Ochocinco smacking his lawyer’s butt and being put in jail for 30 days but then apologizing and having his time in jail shortened to one week.
SERENA OPINION ON THE SIXTEEN YEAR OLD RAPE
But it was her recent comments she made to Rolling Stone about the high school boys in Steubenville, OH who were accused of raping a teen girl. People said she was victim-blaming when she spoke up saying the victim was “lucky” (likely meaning lucky something worse didn’t happen) and that girls should be taught how not to get themselves in situations like those (being drunk and not in control).
I’m not blaming the girl, but if you’re a 16-year-old and you’re drunk like that, your parents should teach you—don’t take drinks from other people. She’s 16, why was she that drunk where she doesn’t remember? It could have been much worse. She’s lucky. Obviously I don’t know, maybe she wasn’t a virgin, but she shouldn’t have put herself in that position, unless they slipped her something, then that’s different.”
Serena’s most recent statement
alluded to her words being misconstrued by RS
. She said:
“What happened in Steubenville was a real shock for me. I was deeply saddened. For someone to be raped, and at only sixteen, is such a horrible tragedy! For both families involved — that of the rape victim and of the accused. I am currently reaching out to the girl’s family to let her know that I am deeply sorry for what was written in the Rolling Stone article. What was written — what I supposedly said — is insensitive and hurtful, and I by no means would say or insinuate that she was at all to blame.
“I have fought all of my career for
women’s equality, women’s equal rights, respect in their fields — anything I could do to support women I have done. My prayers and support always goes out to the rape victim. In this case, most especially, to an innocent sixteen year old child.
Cast of “The Best Holiday”
I watched this movie a 1000 times on DVD when that was all I had. NO CABLE WAS MADE BY DVD’s!!
Paula Deen got fired from THE FOOD NETWORK for racist comments such as the “N Word”
Pauala’s Apology: “I want to apologize to everybody for the wrong that I’ve done. I want to learn and grow from this. Inappropriate and hurtful language is totally, totally unacceptable.”
This time, Paula seem more relaxed and offered a more “detailed” apology.
“Your color of your skin, your religion, your sexual preference does not matter…I was wrong, yes, I’ve worked hard, and I have made mistakes, but that is no excuse and I offer my sincere apology to those that I have hurt, and I hope that you forgive me because this comes from the deepest part of my heart.”
Unfortunately for Paula, the two attempts were not enough to save her gig at the FOOD Network. A spokeswoman for the network told TMZ that Paula Deen’s contract would not be renewed when it expired at the end of June.
Although the FOOD Network didn’t offer any specifics about the non-renewal, it looks like they couldn’t stand the heat…and put Paula out of the kitchen.
I know you heard that my TEAM HEAT WON!!!!
Congrats Lebron James, who is marrying his high school sweetheart Savannah Brinson, the mother of his two kids!!
Adios Amigos, Until Next Time
