Happy New Year, and good riddance to Winter (even though Spring came in with a nice snow storm in New York). I am back from my "blog-atus" or blog hiatus. A lot of things have happened so far this year, the most obvious being the "Chrihanna" situation (who started blending celebrity names anyway? Horrible move).
My take on abusive relationships is this, no man should hit a woman for any reason. A female can hit a man only if she caught him doing something that could jeopardize her emotional and physical health (cheating with another woman or, even worse, another man - then she could kill him... j/k). Otherwise, ladies should keep their hands to themselves. If you have to consistently hit your man, you need to leave the situation because it is unhealthy. Good for Rihanna for finally leaving Chris.
Chris is 19! He has a lot of nerve beating on any female at his age. Sure he saw domestic violence growing up, but, think about it... he allegedly beat up Rihanna because she got mad at him for getting an alleged booty call from someone he was sleeping with during their relationship.
I would feel a little sympathy for him if photos didn't come out of him jet skiing and smiling in Miami. A little remorse? Just a smidgen? Please?
Rihanna has split, for now. Some women don't get a chance to walk away.
Now on another topic:
I thought Barack Obama was hilarious on The Tonight Show on Thursday night. I thought at the moment he made the Special Olympics comment in reference to his bowling was not malicious in intent. Upon further review I can see where the Special Olympics people would be up in arms, but NO ONE ELSE.
Come On! The "uproar" over this screams watchdog group.
It was like Republicans and Obama detractors were glued to the television waiting for something they can criticize. Lord knows they got on him for filling out an NCAA bracket on Sportscenter. The man is a human being. Must everything he does be political? Plenty of Republican Congressman have shown they use plenty of leisure time in bathroom stalls, with Pages, and women not their wife, etc. Can Obama have an interest in sports and focus on the economy at the same time?
I guess not.
Just my thoughts ladies and gentlemen...
