First, sorry for being AWOL for so long. A brother's been distracted by a few things and needs to redevelop some focus, so while I got a little bit I thought I'd relate my view on acting, or more specifically, how Ol Ty could *never* kick it with a shorty actress. Now I'm not saying I'm the jealous type, but I can't say I'd be feelin' seeing some buster gettin' busy with my boo - I don't care how 'professional' they were about it. Anyway, word reached the basement recently that ex-spouses Rick Fox and Vanessa Willams are kicking it again on the set of ABC's Ugly Betty! Now, last I heard the split was fuel by speculation about Rick being at a party in the shower with a chair and a revolving line of blonds. Given that, Vanessa must be jonesin' for a Fox Fix to ever be in the same room with homey, let alone playing lovers on TV...
For my loyal Malone Zone Basement Dwellers, y'all will remember I weighed in on Rick's dumb a$$ way back in August 2004 (including the fact that it was Rick who dropped the papers on 'Nessa - talk about a bold play! Get caught then act indignant!) so while it's possible that time heals all wounds I have to think that there's something else going on up in this mug. Exhibit A: Southside shortys don't play that noise. It's a wonder Rick didn't end up with a face full of hot grits or accidentally walk into a knife twenty times for some
Okay - I know Vanessa is 50/50 northside/southside so it's possible that the northside 50% was encouraging her to be a little more reasonable and to think about the kids. Yeah, yeah, whatever. That doesn't get you past Exhibit B: Vanessa may be getting a little long in the tooth but I have to believe that she could pull some
Then again, maybe it is all about acting and 'Nessa's being the bigger person and trying to throw ol boy a bone now that he's retired from basketball and is trying to get his acting career off the ground. Wow - have homeboy/shorty relations evolved to that point yet? If so, I have to give 'Nessa big dap on that and reiterate the point I made in that August 2004 post - Rick, you still a big a$$ dummy.
