Desperate For Love
Did anybody watch Love & Hip Hop Atlanta? Now, I know that it seems like VH1 just has it out for Black people looking like fools but honestly I thought this show was going to be a little more classy for some reason. Every show has drama but I couldn’t even finish watching it after I saw Mimi pretty much allowing herself to be degraded on national tv. In case, you didn’t watch, she’s dating this dude named Stevie and he’s pretty much been cheating on her their entire 15 year relationship.
And the thing that got me is that she knew. I’m sorry but I have standards and I’m not about to overlook no man’s creeping regardless of how much money he has or how much I think I love him. Love is an action not emotion and his actions have clearly being saying that he couldn’t give two rats about her. Did I mention they have a two year old daughter?
If I was crazy enough to stay with somebody like that, we certainly wouldn’t be having unprotected sex. AIDS and HIV is catching!! I know people want to talk about it’s 2012, but sleeping around is never cute no matter how fun and hip it looked on Sex & the City. And she was all talking about it’s part of the lifestyle of being an entertainer. Says who?
There are plenty of people in the business who have morals and self respect and respect for their partner. They don’t have to cheat and knock up other women. In the end, I had to stop watching last night’s episode because the message that Mimi was sending out didn’t sit well with me.
You don’t have to be so desperate for love that you lower yourself to being somebody’s play thing. Trust me, I was almost that young girl. Thank goodness I was able to catch myself. I don’t want to sound holier than thou (because Lord knows I’m not), but the Bible tells us what love is SUPPOSE to be in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 and Stevie’s “love” for Mimi isn’t any of those things!
Did you watch? Could you overlook 15 years of cheating?
