UPDATE: Roseanne Barr Has Some Advice For Rihanna –
The former funnywoman has some things to get off her chest about this Chris Brown/Rihanna situation:
“has done what all abusers do: dis-arm his victim (rhianna). That is the key to getting off the hook. I bet he got all of the lawyers who stand to profit off of the conjoined endorsement deals that are pending for the couple to call her up and tell her that they know that chris loves her and that he told them all that she hit him first. I can tell by her language that their publicity machine is trying to save chris brown’s payday. the message she is sending out thru her publicity machine is that she is violent too, and provoked him into hitting her by hitting him first. (No mention is made of the fact that he had no bruises or cuts on his face). This is how domestic abuse is swept away. (no one remembers nicole brown anymore).
I just know from experience that this is how show business works to conceal and excuse domestic abuse. I also know from experience that it is common that the woman throws the first insult or punch. the big dirty secret is that violent men are with violent women and vice versa. They continue to stay together so they can continue to be violent, break up and then make up, involving all their families and their friends in the whole sick and stinking charade. They both need to go to jail, if in fact she did hit him or terrorize him psychologically. I lived through this crap, and I know how it goes. I know how I finally walked away from a restaurant deal, a clothing line, a production company with deals for four more sitcoms and a couple other things that I thought justified trying to excuse the abuse in order to keep.
Rhianna, don’t touch him or insult him or yell at him or try to humiliate him and you will be just fine. Find a way to say no to him and stay calm when you do it. If and when he tries to provoke you into saying the things that set him off, leave immediately, and do not return until he is totally contrite and realistic in taking responsibility for trying to escalate violence. An abusive man who can not take responsibility for his violent actions will never stop being abusive. (as jesus says: when your heart is completely broken, the journey of repentance can begin and that journey leads to peace).”
Check out what she had to say below:
“make me want to beat the crap out of him…he uses the language of the perpetrator just like every sleazy bastard who ever smacked his wife, kid mother or girlfriend around uses. you dirty bastard, I hope you go to prison for ten years. IT’S YOUR FAULT, ASSHOLE! as for all the mealy mouthed hollywood and music scene chicks that can’t bring themselves to condemn a misogynistic bully, let me say this: your time as whores for propaganda is ending, bitches.”
