Pay back’s a bitch- evidently a bald one. Amber Rose’s reaction to Kanye’s creep with Kim is quite admirably on some new 2012 ish: No beatdown’s were issued, no cars were keyed up, and no verbal cat fights transpired – nope. Instead, Amber found a sweeter revenge. She called the alleged Jezebel by her name, “homewrecker” (which according to Trayhova, you should never do) and moved on with her life. Rose took a higher road that led to new love. True, there were some vengeful pit stops sprinkled along the way, but for the most part Amber handled an infidelity ridden break-up better than the best of us. Peep how:
1) She Didn’t Cut a B*tch…
Let’s face it – the most cathartic response in the wake of infidelity is to rip flesh and take no prisoners. Hence the main reason we women tend to attack the other woman first, because we have a better chance at hauling ass victoriously! Geometrically speaking, her neck is much slimmer than his, therefore likening the chances of a successful headlock – so why not pounce toward probability? To the pissed off mind, this is a perfectly rational theory. But, to the emotionally sobered mind – it’s a messy move. Attacking HER, obscures your sense of worth, displaces aggression, and puts your pretty face in great danger (and chick let’s face it, you’re single now – you can’t afford to damage the money maker)! Amber’s reservation was an awesome power move – withholding retaliation and even slander for the after-math period of the break-up gave the former stripper … ready for it…a glow of class. So just imagine what it could do for you?
2) She Exercised the Fact that She’s Still Bad
On the day of rejection, even the most confident chick can feel super ugly. Before you allow the horny antics of you’re cheating BF to conjure those sh*tty internalized feelings of insecurity, DON’T. Exercise your appeal until that muscle swells into unremitting confidence. How? With a regulated dosage of juvenile ish – go on you deserve it! Yup, good ol’ fashioned immature payback; posting some pics of a sexier confident you on mutual social networks should grant you a healthy cackle – so do it! And if you’re the indulgent type, have a healthy hook-up with her ex. Amber’s rebound romp with Reggie must of stuck it to Kim really good (probably even better than ‘Ye did). Just make sure that your immature cheap thrills are governed by mature rationality. I.E. Don’t go tit-for-tat with payback nor dupe yourself into believing that your rebound is real love. Your rebound is just what it is- another opportunity to score. Do it, have a little victory dance, and get back on your hustle chick.
3) She’s the Type to Laugh at the BS
In all break-ups people are going to choose sides. Make sure you give your newly recruited opponents something to laugh at – quite possibly themselves! Amber’s “wateverness” to the whole “Yeezy, taught me dabbacle” could have pissed off many, but Rose rolled with the punches. Photoshopped images of her wearing a shirt mocking her own mockerey have surfaced the net. Although we can’t confirm for sure that Rose would rock the phrase, the image of the picture shows an image of a cool, confident, chick that would make light of her relationship’s demise (even if it feels heavy as hell). Why is this important? Because eventually your mind will follow your actions (as it always will) and bypass the wreckage.
4) She Thanked the Mistress
We always want to throw shade at the next chick, as if you were in a committed relationship with her. Smh. Despite the theory of the “Probability Pounce” I detailed above, resist the urge. Dude did you wrong. Chick was just a bystander- not innocent, but no where as guilty as he is. Sometimes, you have to thank the girl because they exposed the truth about the type of man you’re in love with.
“I want to thank Kim. Because if she was never a homewrecker, then I never would have met Wiz, and I wouldn’t be as happy as I am now,” -radar
5) She Moved On and Didn’t Look Back
As the saying goes, “The best way to get over a guy is to get under another one”. Quite possibly, perhaps, but then again maybe not. This euphemism is as sticky as female emotions. Hopping into a new love while still healing from old love is emotional malnutrition. If you’re still carrying duffel bags of resentment from the last dude, that weight is going to burden and sabotage what your building with next dude. In an interview with Wendy Williams, Amber confessed to having love for West, but as for wanting to go back, “Hell No.” Give yourself some well-deserved selfish time and then go find yourself a guy that worships the ground you walk on. Shoot, this homegirl from Philly can up and do it – so can you!
Do you think Amber let Kim get off easy? Or do you think her reaction to catching Kanye and Kim sitting in a tree was one that most women should do? Speak your truth damnit! Share the good word @WWMDtv
