So I had recently stumbled on some jabs being taken at Basketball Wives Royce Reed and decided to further inquire. Although harsh, I understand why peoples panties are in a bunch. Royce, who has recently decided to take back her BF Dezmon, is clearly another victim of reckless ride-or-dieness, a topic I’m pretty passionate about for reasons I’m not the proudest of! So although I’m not an avid BBW stan, I did want to take the time to offer some perspective, especially since this isn’t the first time Royce has gone H.A.M. defending a lover. Plus, I like Royce! Minor Disclaimer: There may be a lot of sister-girl-ness going on here! Be advised.
I had to write because I think you’re acting and I’m kindly requesting a stop to the silliness. We understand, the boy is professional hott damness, but be honest with yourself, is he really worth you out here looking Sweet 16? As I’ve said before, in another blog inspired by another notorious ride-or-die chick, rude gyal Rihanna (who is looking quite regrettable nowadays might I add) love is blind, deaf, and defensive. And here you are, exercising all 3 handicaps! Lol, come on Royce! Not sure if you’ve taken an objective point of view at your hopelessly devoted behavior, but here’s what’s been accomplished thus far:
First you broke down like a brat outside the ice cream truck after your father expressed concern about your boy-craziness. Daddy I luuhhh him, you don’t understand! Wah, wah, waaaah! Basically the same spat Ariel had with King Triton. After all was said and blubbered you declared the die hard authenticity of what you an tall T.I. share.
Then, you received some real bad news. Publicly…
Yet, even in the wake of the revelation that your “committed” lover has freaky fingers– you still ran for the super-save-a-cape to defend his dishonor! (Really?)
NOW, that the big ugly truth has proven itself evident, you decide to keep on digging out your own hole. Instead of taking the time to retract some statements or at least find shade under a sombrero and some silence, you instead take a visit to iPower 92.1 radio and issue this statement.
The situation is crazy and I understand why he did it, it was wrong as hell, but the fact is he never cheated on me. I love him, he loves me and it wasn’t time to walk away. I’m not gonna leave him for the one thing he did wrong when there were so many other things he did right.
Royce! What. Is. Really. Good? You’re out here looking silly! Lol, like really silly! Your man, your cute, adorable I’ll-show-you-mines-if-you-show-me-yours tenderoni is NOT about that monogamy life. And I understand, there’s a little apron hanging in every woman’s heart, just yearning to domesticate someone we find kissable, but we have to choose wisely. Do you really want to have to teach a man how to respect you? Or at the very least, teach him how to not embarrass you publicly? Sounds exhausting and makes me want to take a nap…
In the event that you decide to ride your “committed” relationship until the wheels fall off (which should be annnnnyyyy minute now) please keep this in mind moving forward: A woman is supposed to complement her man, not mold and recreate him. Remember? “It takes me just to complement the deal! That’s a GOOD look!” In all seriousness (I was just poking fun before, but I’m putting on my bifocals now) from the outside looking in, you’re drowning in the same quicksand as most other women, the natural born desire to rehabilitate –which is a good thing and shows that you have a patient heart, but that’s a quality that should be reserved for child-rearing, not man-molding. Like I said, we’re complementors, meaning if he’s a good catch, you, being a fellow good catch, will further enhance his greatness. However, if he’s sub-par (and let’s be clear, sexting the ex, is beyond sub-par, it’s sub-zero) you’re going to exhaust your good lovin, which is a charcoal paved road that leads to bitterness.
Geez Royce, doesn’t this story just get sadder and sadder? Now I don’t even need to take a nap anymore, I just want to cry But we won’t go there (we’re big girls), let’s just make better choices, yeah?
Sincerely, someone who wants to you see be the best basketball BM you can be,
Would you take back a lover who was sexting their ex? Do you think she’s right for standing by her man? Where do you stand on the matter? Do you even know who Royce Reed is lol? For additional keeping it realness tweet us @wwmdtv!
