This week's Throwack Video is New Edition's "Can You Stand the Rain?". I LOVE, LOVE LOVE THIS SONG! To be perfectly honest, I don't remember much about New Edition, as I was younger when they were popular, and not paying much attention to secular music (to be perfectly honest, I wasn't really allowed to listen to it) but I discovered this song when I was a little older, and I've loved it ever since. Oh, and I've always loved Johnny Gill's voice...do yall remember when he was on that episode of "Family Matters" when he sang "My, My,My" to Laura? Lol, remember how she was squirming all over the couch? Well I was FEELING her on that! Now? Not so much, but back then...oh yeah!

So I was watching "Cheaters" the other night and this episode came on. The man, the self-proclaimed "Old School G" was pretty much a hot mess! How he pulled one woman, let alone two is beyond me! PLUS, from his interaction with his girlfriend of 15 years (yes, I did say GIRLFRIEND OF 15 YEARS!) it looks to me like there could be some domestic violence going on...just some thoughts, right or wrong, just what I observed at the time. Sistas, we must never feel so low that we allow a man - any man - to put us through this kind of foolishness. An old adage comes to mind - "I can do bad all by myself," and that's REAL! You know the WORST part about the "Cheaters" situation? Sis stayed with him - after all of that she stayed with him! If he acted a fool in front of the cameras, imagine how he acts at home. SMH, we should add her on the list of people we need to pray for - her and the other millions of women who are in similar situations.
