It was all good two months ago

Now I don’t watch Hollywood Exes and I don’t recommend anyone else to either, but I am familiar with Andrea Kelly, and the news that she is divorcing her pretty boy barber after only two months of marriage is sad and funny at the Same.Dame.Time.

Not funny because I find anyone’s misfortune to be a joke, but more-so because how else are these fly by night relationships supposed to turn out? Grab you a dixie cup for all this cheap, store-brand tea.(You don’t even need a mug)

(Thanks to Madamenoire for piecing together all this Back-a-town mess)

Andrea Kelly married 36-year-old barber, Brian McKee back on March 6th.  In an interview with Hello Beautiful she couldn’t stop gushing about her God sent Kang.

“There’s a lot of men who say they love God, but a man who fears God, his soul is going to tremble at the thought, ‘this is someone who is my wife,’ and ‘do right by her.’ A man who fears God, his very first thought is, ‘What am I doing to please God that then is going to please her?’ That’s what I got, I struck gold.” 

(I can’t really believe y’all are using the bible to emotional blackmail men into being with y’all like this.  This is not what the good book was intended for)

That was her talking that single-black-woman-selective-scripture-translating mess they all seem to do in bible study when they’re tired of the Trade they want running the streets with girls younger than them. **side eye at her ex-husband R. Kelly**  Unfortunately, it doesn’t matter how many passages you read.  A light skin man with funny eyes is going to roam, and you can believe that now that he’s on a reality show, one of his lil boos will be coming looking for her moment to shine. Brian sent text messages (Why are y’all still texting mess?) to a woman he used to date asking her to wire him some money through. Sister 2 Sister published the story after the woman shared the texts with Kelly and All About Tea.(Everybody is in your business honey)

“I just got 3000 a month in bills with no job, car pmnt, student loans etc cell…i need help yesterday! !!! Need a couple western union a couple grand today!!! But we can do monthly on going or weekly…” 

Poor guy.  You almost gotta feel sorry for him. My expenses are nowhere near this but I know what it’s like struggling. Hey at least he’s not checking people’s mailboxes and stealing their identities **Looking at you Apollo Nida** All the women are wondering why he didn’t ask his wife for the money. I mean….you don’t wanna go to the same well too often.  This is how a lot of dudes like this are.  Let’s keep it real.  Dude is a barber.  His pockets aren’t long like that and Andrea knew what that was when she got with him.  But now that she knows the cat is about to be out of the bag, and she’ll be found out to be just one of many sugar mamas, she had to save face and that meant throwing poor Brian under the bus. She went straight to Da Twitta showing her Independant woman ass.

“I read you’re email and I want the world to know I FORGIVE YOU! And you stepped up like a WOMEN. I’M PROUD OF YOU!” 

“Gave over a year of my life for this… THE VERDICT: @DreaKelly guilty on all charges of being HONEST, FALLING IN LOVE,AND TRUSTING…..”

“I don’t care if you’ve been w someone for 22yrs or 22 seconds on the 23rd you find out it’s not TRUE-that’s your cue to end it…..CLARITY!”

“I will always love me more….. 1)Roll the dice 2)Bet on DREA 3)Win EVERY time. #free”

You go girl…witya dumb ass. They not cheering for you.  They are laughing at you, and all those same women would be more than happy to give your Trade a place to stay and pay his bills….like you agreed to do.

She played it well by rallying all the single misreable bishes on social media to her side, but so much of this story comes off inauthentic to me. If he’s such a God-fearing man then why not fight for your relationship? Why not counseling?  If he did so much for you back in March then why is he struggling so hard that he has to go to other women for financial help?  He was a barber when you met him, so I’m sure you all had some sort of financial discussion of what his responsibilities would be.

This will be the same type of woman next week talking about the “sanctity of marriage” in regards to gays next week, but this week she’s rolling the dice and betting on herself.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.  These church folks can find a passage to rationalize anything they do, but when it comes to putting their faith into works they’re betting on themselves. 

I don’t see her as the righteous one here and I damn sure don’t see her as a victim. I see her as a reality television personality doing damage control.  I also see her as someone who shyts on the vows of marriage with as much regard for the scripture as those people who use bible pages to roll marijuana.

Qmunity I’ll bring it to you because I know how shady I can get.  Is this a woman correcting a mistake early?  Or a fool trying to save face?
