  On June 10th, Joanna Hernandez, better known as Cocktail from VH1’s dating reality show “Love of Ray J,” announced on her Twitter that she and boyfriend Ray J were no longer together. She also announced the news on her personal MySpace page. 

 

On her website, Hernandez states that she and the R&B singer turned actor are still friends. She also states that while on the recent For Love of Ray J Tour, she and her recent ex boyfriend were “acting.”

“… When I was on the show, I truly fell for Ray. I invested my time, effort, and emotions into him and wanted things to work. But the reality of reality television is that it doesn’t always work. Ray and I are no longer together. We have not been together for awhile now but we have remained friends and when we hang out we have a great time. I miss him very much and respect what decisions he has made. He is a really cool person and someone I feel connected with for sure but aside from that, I can’t say. As for the tour we just did and “acting” like we were together, it comes with the show. What people saw of us on tour was real. When we are together we have a cool chemistry. We have fun and enjoy each others company. But at the end of the day I wasn’t the right person for Ray and although it hurt me at least he was honest about the situation before it went any further. I do want to end this on a positive note, I am happy. I am having fun, living life and doing me. I have a lot of projects coming up and you will see a lot more of me for sure. “

On April 21, Ray J’s older sister and fellow R&B singer Brandy Norwood, said in an interview with  Atlanta’s radio station, The Beat, that she could had certain woman in mind for her brother.

“…I am going to get killed for saying it cause I know her, but I would love to see Ray J with Keyshia Cole. I think Keyshia Cole and Ray together, she would balance him out. She won’t take anything off of him and Ray would have to settle and step up his game.”

When the Oxygen channel came out with the reality television show, “The Bad Girls Club,” I refused to watch it. Now, after two and a half seasons I am glued to the show. I just finished watching the marathon. Though the girls, or characters, are interesting, they are not phenomenal in any way. The real appeal of the show is the drama, arguments and physical fights between the roommates in the Bad Girls Club house. I fell deep into this trap this week while watching the violent show. While watching the marathon I was cheering on the roommates when they got into bar brawls with customers and clapped my hands when one of the roommates that I didn’t like got cussed out by a roommate I did support. I watched the drama and nodded my head with the confrontation. That is, until the newest episode. The episode that aired this week, Amber M. was attacked by three of her roommates. In the fight her hair was snatched, she was punched, slapped, pushed onto the pavement and kicked once in the head. After the fight Amber M. retreated to a different hotel room and the other roommates celebrated their actions. This episode disgusted me and made me take another look at the image that I was supporting.

Females getting into fights is not a new trend in reality television. However, it is a trend that needs to stop. As women, we should be conducting ourselves in an honorable way. We should not be calling each other “bitches” “sluts” or “whores.” It saddens me to see women tear each other down.

Women insulting each other also opens up the door for others to do the same. I a a firm believer that, if you keep calling a female a bitch, a male will feel that he can, too. As women, we disrespect each other too much to have a man doing it as well.

I am tired of seeing the rip between women widen.

Friendships

So……..

 I accept all types of people as there are. However, I have a new perspective of people and who I keep close to me as friends. I know even more than before that I cannot trust everyone. I also now know more than ever what characteristics I want in my friends. I have associates and friends. I’m not sure what to call people who fit in between. 

I do not want  friend who I cannot 90% trust. I don’t want to always have to censor what I say, for fear that it will be told to someone else. I also don’t want to have to baby someone all the time. Goodness, I am 20 years old. I am not a mother. And people are not my children. 

I want friends that I can count on. I want friends that give to me what I give to them. For a year and a half! Ipoured more into someone more than they gave me. I love all God’s children- but I am NOT doing that again. I refuse. At least I hope I don’t again. No, I won’t. I’m already in the process of it fulfilling promise.  

 If a person does not want to be saved,

don’t waste all your energy trying to save them.

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day

So, it is Feb 14th, also known as Valentine’s Day. Too often, individuals who do not have valentines are bitter on this day. I, for one, do not really care. Each year, I bake a goodie and pass it out to all of my friends. I did not this year because many of my friends went back home for the holiday. Still, I feel fine.

I do not think that Valentine’s Day should be a day in which single people should feel bitterly aware that they are single. Valentine’s Day should be a day like any other day- we should be showing our love ones that we love them. Why only show it on one day.

And, I hate, but understand, how people scramble to find a mate for this one day. But still….then what, you go back to being alone. 

My ex boyfriend cheated on me in October. Months later in February, I am not about to be leaning over my dresser crying. I am single, but that alone does not define me.

I am: beautiful, a Christian, a college student, a journalist, a daughter, a granddaughter, intelligent, very funny, kind-hearted, loving and giving. I am single but am using my singular relationship status to live my life boldly!!

Amen, sister!!!!
