In addition to working on her quiet-as-kept relationship with the Rev. Al Sharpton, actress and former First Lady of Turks & Caicos LisaRaye is also starring in her own reality TV show!

They say LisaRaye is P/O at her “friends” Vivica A. Fox and Star Jones for abandoning her in her time of need. But that’s typical of how we turn on each other in the black community. Black men stick together, but black women are our own worst enemies. That’s why I can count my female friends on three fingers.

From That B*tch:

Word around the Internet is LisaRaye will be using her new reality show to target her former best friends Star Jones and Vivica Fox. They say LisaRaye is angry because her pals didn’t stick by her through her divorce. She claims to have hosted Star on the Turks and Caicos Islands for 3 months while she went through her divorce from Al Reynolds, only to have Star turn around and take Michael Misicks’ side while LisaRaye was going through her own divorce. LisaRaye also accuses Vivica Fox of betraying her by telling Michael Misick her deepest darkest secrets and Duane Martin of providing Michael with a mistress. They say she’ll have some words for Rocsi, too.

Star Jones wrote a well thought out letter in response to Bill O’Reilly‘s racial slur toward Michelle Obama on a recent show. As you all know by now, O’Reilly was talking to a caller who was angry at Mrs. Obama for saying, “for the first time in my adult lifetime, I’m really proud of my country.”

O’Reilly responded in his famous tongue-in-cheek way by saying, “I don’t want to go on a lynching party against Michelle Obama unless there’s evidence, hard facts, that say this is how the woman really feels. If that’s how she really feels – that this is a bad country or a flawed nation, whatever – then that’s legit. We’ll track it down.”

To date, only two influential blacks have responded to the slur: Jesse Jackson and Star Jones In Jones’ letter – which is reposted in its entirety on Black Voices.com – she said:

What annoys me more than anything is that I get the feeling that one of the reasons Bill O’Reilly made this statement, thinking he could get away with it in the first place, and then followed it up with a lame apology in a half-hearted attempt to smooth any ruffled feathers, is because he doesn’t think that black women will come out and go after him when he goes after us. Well, he’s dead wrong. Be clear Bill O’Reilly: there will be no lynch party for that black woman. And this black woman assures you that if you come for her, you come for all of us.” — Star Jones Reynolds READ MORE…
