DECODING JADA AND WILL’S "OPEN" MARRIAGE CONFUSION

  04/20/13 13:23, by etwire, Categories: Welcome , Tags: jada pinkett-smith, marriage, open marriage, rumors, will smith

Every time Jada Pinkett-Smith says something about her 16 year marriage to Will, people take it to mean that they have an open marriage. I didn’t really know why people thought that before but I think I do now. I also think I know what she’s really saying in interviews. You see, people get confused because Jada is so wordy in her response that it seems like she’s almost talking in code. This doesn’t help her deflect the comments on her marriage. It just looks like she’s hiding something.

As for the meaning of her comments, I think she’s saying that when she took her vows 16 years ago, she did not intend for her marriage to be an open one. However, if she should find out (or has found out) that Will has cheated, she is not going to leave him! This isn’t that hard to believe. Many women feel this way and do this. Some years ago, comedienne Monique said something similar. Ironically, people accused her of having an open marriage, too. I guess it depends on what you consider “open.” If staying with someone that has cheated on you means you’re in an open marriage, then I guess nearly 70% of marriages are indeed open.

DRAKE’S DENIAL

  04/14/13 23:15, by etwire, Categories: Welcome , Tags: chris brown, drake, interview, rihanna

Drake decided to speak his piece on the issues he has with Chris Brown. According several sources, he told a radio DJ that the media needs to stop preying on Brown’s insecurities and that Rihanna fell into his lap. This interview appears to be his confirmation of an earlier relationship with Rihanna.

I think Drake is in a little bit of denial here. Even if he dated Rihanna, it was pretty clear that she still had feelings for Chris. I think it was deeper for him than it was for her and, at this point, he should let it go. There is no use in being mad at Chris. Maybe Drake should choose woman that doesn’t still have emotional ties to another man. Then, he’ll get the love that he wants.

The cover of my second novel is here! The Cost of Love and Sanity will be released January 14, 2014 but it is available for preorder. It’s about a woman’s struggle with love, loss and faith. Her experiences force her to face the dreams she once held and the man she once left. Throughout the story, she goes through a myriad of emotions and has to come to grips with what she really wants and how to get it.

It’s a fairly deep novel and there is a definite message in it for women. Stay tuned for more information about it in the coming months.

HALLE HAS A THERAPIST

  03/31/13 13:10, by etwire, Categories: Welcome

Halle Berry recently admitted that she has been seeing a therapist off and on for 30 years. The actress grew up with an alcoholic, abusive father. Her mother put her therapy when she was a child and Halle says she turns to a therapist when she has rough times in her life.

I have two thoughts on this. For one, I’m glad she’s getting help. There’s nothing worse than a person that’s in denial about needing help. On the other hand, I have to wonder how good of a job these therapists are doing that she has to continue to see them for 30 years! Don’t get me wrong. I know some issues take longer to resolve but it just seems like there should be more progress. What do you think?

ATLANTA “HOUSEWIFE” AND FORMER BALLER HEAD FOR DIVORCE

  03/30/13 12:21, by etwire, Categories: Welcome

This week, The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Porsha Stewart learned through the media that her baller husband, Kordell Stewart, filed for divorce. Supposedly, she was “blindsided” by the news that her marriage was over, even though the court papers say that they were separated. Kordell has received a lot of heat lately. One of the main storylines on The Housewives is how controlling he is with Porsha.

Well, it’s unfortunate to see people end their marriage. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t see this coming but I will admit that I didn’t think it would happen so soon. I thought they would be headed for divorce by next year. Of course, not because I wanted them to, but due to the fact that there seemed to be a lot of issues (like kids and career) that they failed to agree on. I could also see Kordell getting tired of looking like the bad guy. Most people that came into contact with them felt that he controlled Porsha and even she suggested concern that this might be a problem.

Kordell probably doesn’t see himself as controlling or as a bad guy. As he said, “I have control but I’m not controlling.” (Whatever that means) My point is maybe this experience will allow him to take a step back and take an honest assessment of himself and his motivation for his words and his actions. In my humble opinion, Porsha seems like a woman-child, meaning she’s obviously not a little girl but she still has some little girlish ways. This may have caused some of the controlling issues. It looked like Kordell took on the role of a father instead of a husband to her little girl antics and musings. It’s almost like “raising a wife.” That’s a lot of work and, if that’s what it lapsed into, it’s probably better that they step back from each other. Maybe he can correct his latent control behaviors and she can develop the characteristics that will make her feel more “like a woman,” as she said to her therapist. Then, she’ll be good rather she has a baby and husband—or not.
