Desperate And Delusional
Being Mary Jane took desperate and delusional to new levels in this weeks episode. Did you watch? Mary Jane (Gabrielle Union), the lead character is having an affair with Andre (Omari Hardwick), a married man. In a previous episode, she confronted Andre’s wife Avery (Robin Lee) and gave her all the details of their affair. On last night’s episode, Mary Jane was invited to speak at a women’s empowerment luncheon. Coincidentally, Avery was invited too and ended up at the same table seated next to Mary Jane.
Up Your Sex Game
Since Avery knew all of the women at the table, she thought it was the perfect time to discuss her husbands affair. When asked how she found out, she replied, “His mistress told me.” She then said to Mary Jane, “You seem to be knowledgeable about these things, how would you handle it” and Mary Jane replied, I would up my sex game.”
Cheating Is A Choice
Women are upping their sex game every day of the week that ends in “Y” and husbands are still cheating all across the map. Great sex never stopped a man from cheating and it never will. Cheating is a choice. If you’re banking on a good sex game to keep your man, you have more problems than a little bit. Andre made the big mistake of telling Mary Jane how sorely his sex life was lacking and she used that information to humiliate Avery who is hurting terribly as her marriage falls apart. When it was time to step up to the podium to empower the ladies, here’s what she said:
You know I had this great little sisterhood speech all prepared but I seem to have left in my purse at the table. I don’t want to talk about sisterhood today. I know there’s a lot of professional women here but I want to speak to the younger girls. You guys signed up for this mentorship program because you want to be successful. You want to be your mentors. Everybody tells you, do your best so you can be number one. But there’s another position.
You know I found that being number two gives you all the glory of being at the top without all the pressures of the number one spot. You see the job of any great number two is to figure out what the number one is missing, what they refuse to see and what they’re doing wrong. So you know, take your time, learn, be patient, get better…you will get to where you’re supposed to be if you do the work. Because remember, if you don’t, somebody else will.
Go Get Your Own
Seems like many women today think like Mary Jane. They’re fine with settling for crumbs. They’ll take anybody just to have somebody because being single today, especially after you reach a certain age screams something is wrong with you. I believe it takes a woman of strength and unshakable resolve to remain single in a world that supports being number two. I’ll never forget the words of the late Elizabeth Edwards when she sat down for an interview with Oprah Winfrey to discuss her cheating husband. She said, “Its okay to want what I have but go get your own.” Exactly!
And you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife. And you shall not desire your neighbor’s house, his field, or his male servant, or his female servant, his ox, or his donkey, or anything that is your neighbor’s.–Deuteronomy 5:21
Something to think about…
What say you? Is a good sex game enough to keep a man? What are your thoughts on being number two? Would you settle for being number two?
