A Woman's Worth

February 8, 2009

Wow. Chris Brown shanked Rihanna? So disappointing and shocking.

Right after reading that story on People I saw the one with Tameka Foster being in serious condition in Brazil after plastic surgery. After my lengthy rant on the ills of the entertainment industry (Sorry roomie), I was just wanting to go read to babies in South Africa and live on the shore somewhere down south . The one thought that hit me was "Go Rihanna for pressing charges."

Nobody ever thinks they will one day be assaulted by someone who says they love them, but it happens and can happen to any of us.

And once it does, the ball is in your court.

I can only imagine the thoughts going through her head and what was said to get her to let it go and not ring the alarm. She put her own pride aside and what people would think to say this is wrong and Im worth more than this, and stood up for herself. Im sure in the coming days and weeks more of what really happened will make its way to headlines (on Jessica Simpson mom jeans naseauting levels I suppose). But one thing I do hope comes as well is that more women realize they are not alone, it can happen to anyone, including the young and beautiful, and that you matter and deserve respect!

    I heard about these stories one right after the other last week. When I heard that Rhianna's people were like what's up with Chris performing at shows on her tour when that was not in the plan, even closing the show, I thought if this is true then he may have a controlling side. I even heard that she told her people to back-up off her man regarding the show. Now I heard all this on the radio, but don't know how true it is. Maybe it all true, but I'd love to see what they both have to say.
