And the Cycle Continues

Excuse me while I pick myself up off the floor after reading the latest news…Chris Brown and Rihanna are back together (with her father’s support).Here is the latest scoop, The two are hanging out at pal Diddy’s  Miami estate working out their issues. Those issues seems pretty easily solved if you ask me…”you beat me up, I am done with you.” But I guess the issues go deeper than that and for some reason she is open to being him. Rihanna is 21 years old with the world at her finger tips and she wants to stay with someone who hits her? Although I was surprised, it seems the professionals say that her response is typical. The director of a domestic violence program at Manhattans Urban Justice Center says that ”the reality is that when you’re in an intimate relationship with anyone you tend to give people chances”.  While Rihanna has remained indoors during the Miami reconciliation, Brown has been out jet skiing and having a grand old time. Rihanna is a role model for so many young girls it is just hard to watch her send the message that it is ok for someone to beat you up as long as they apologize.

And here is one more appalling celebrity story for you. The divorce between Kimora Lee Simmons and Russell Simmons is final and all of the financial needs of his two girls Ming, age 9 and Aoki, age 6 are well taken care of.  Each girl will be paid $20,000 PER MONTH until they reach 19. The girls will also be provided with a car for their use until they reach 16 that is worth at least $60,000 and that will be replaced every 3 years. Honestly, what could the girls use all that money for every single month? What kind of message is that sending these girls and what kind of spoiled brats are they going to grow up to be? I guess there are some who are not affected by the economy. Now get this daddy is forking over all this cash every month yet he gets to see the girls only every 8th week during the school year and on selected holidays. During all of his visits the girls will be accompanied by a security guard as well as a nanny. That’s Hollywood for you huh?
In other happier news, Tom Brady, the New England Patriots quarterback, and the beautiful Gisele Bundchen officially tied the knot in California this weekend. It was a small private affair for the couple.
