From the mind of Witch Hazel | Posted in Brew Quotes, La La Vazquez, single ladies, Tyrese, What's your call? | Posted on 09-22-2010
In Sunday’s (sorry, clearing the TiVo takes a minute) premiere episode of Carmelo Anthony & his new wife, LaLa’s reality show on VH1, LaLa’s good friend Tyrese drops a bomb that got me wondering… is he right? During a conversation between the two on “LaLa’s Full Court Wedding,” Tyrese quizzes her on whether she’s really ready to become a wife (after years of being in a relationship that’s already birthed a son). When Lala tells him yeah… Tyrese says this:
“Why are you not hanging out with married women who’ve been married for a long time? You can’t be in the spirit of being married, hanging out with a bunch of single people. I’m not telling you to get rid of all of your friends but they are not in the same space that you are in.”
The comment sparked a Twitter debate that made him a trending topic. Perhaps he was simply trying to say, “dump the chick with the sex tape and the one who let Bow Wow hump her leg.” *shrug*
Anyway, so, does he have a point there? Is it even possible in the media-driven “day of black women don’t get married doom” to try to surround yourself with married women? I know I can count my married friends on my fingers…on one hand.
What’s your call?
