Lately .... I've been watching television in shock at the behavior of 40+ woman. It started with singer Keyshia Cole’s: The Way it Is show. She introduced us to her mom Frankie, during a visit they had in prison. In that interview Frankie was very convincing that she was clean and trying to change her life to be apart of her kids and grandchildren’s life. After being released she did the opposite, once home she started to party and run around Atlanta humiliating her children by acting there age and dating men their age. We then met Mama Jones, who is the Rapper Jim Jones mother. She is making rap songs and doing whatever she can do to get famous thru reality television. She's on twitter starting trouble with woman half her age. Then there's Momma Dee, she is the rapper Scrappy’s mother. She's an ex pimp and drug dealer. She appears on the show Love and Hip Hop Atlanta with her son. On the show she brags about her past and promotes pimping. These woman aren’t demonstrating behavior that could be confused as a #FirstLady.
My mom isn’t the most elegant woman in the world.t I get that everyone isn’t perfect. But let me be clear when I say my damn mom acts her damn age! I recently watched an interview with the singer Olivia, where she was asked about the twitter beef be with Momma Jones. Olivia states “ she doesn’t know where this animosity is coming from, but its clear she got what she wanted and thats her own show.” The interviewer then asked how do you feel about that being Jim Jones mother? Olivia responded “ At the end of the day things boil down to respect, I’m a woman just like her and nobody is going to sit around and be disrespected, I held my tongue a long as possible before I even responded.’’ I believe if want to be treated as #FirstLady than you have to uphold yourself to a higher standard.
