I’ve seen this situation before—where there are two chicks competing over one dude, who has interest in them both, and has somehow finagled a situation where he is openly seeing both ladies—whom are clearly cool with him, but whom are beefing with each other.
I’ve just never seen it with a chick as bad as Rihanna.
Then again, Chris Brown is pretty damn sexy himself. But I digress.
I could’ve sworn the weekend of the Jay-Z Barclays concert that my girl, Ri-Ri, had this situation locked up. ESPECIALLY after Breezy put out the official statement announcing the deadment of the relationship with Karrueche, citing Rihanna as the reason! But since then, Brown has been seen kickin it with both ladies—seemingly having a blast every time. Why wouldn’t he be though? He is all the way winning. He’s obviously either announced that he isn’t yet ready to commit to Rihanna (because as cool as Rihanna is, I can’t imagine she is, “Go on ahead and chill with your ex, Karrueche cool) or despite not being that cool, Rihanna is currently playing the “cool” role because of how she knows dudes react to perceived insecurity.
*rolls my eyes at dudes on behalf of the entire female population*
And it’s pretty clear that Karrueche is willing to take whatever Brown will give her at the moment, just to stay in the picture and ease back in…you know…remind him of why he loved her so much…
In the meantime, Rihanna’s bestie, Melissa Forde (a chick who will OBVIOUSLY hate any person who is mean to her friends—a quality I actually respect) took to Instagram the other day, in response to a comment made by a Karrueche-sider/Rihanna-hater, and, amongst other things, referred to Karrueche as a “rice cake.”
Immature, perhaps…But definitely still funny.
Of course, Rihanna later tweeted her bestie telling her to “Stop!!!!” Ummm hmmm…I know what I mean when I tell my homegirls to “stop it” when they’re engaging in ignorance against an enemy. I really mean, “hahaha, keep that shit going!”
Still, Brown was spotted attending a Halloween party this weekend, in which Karrueche was in attendance. But they didn’t arrive or leave together.
Yet in a total checkmate move, Rihanna was recently photographed leaving “The Montage” in Beverly Hills with Chris Brown’s mother, after having dinner. Apparently the two have stayed in contact with each other—even throughout the post-Grammy beating drama. And we all know how tight Breezy is with his mom.
It is undeniable that Breezy has Rihanna and Karrueche looking a little foolish in the public eye right now, but I suspect that neither woman is concerned with that. Both love him, and are in a serious battle—one in which public humiliation is of no consequence—to win him. I know that a lot of people out there are judging them—particularly Rihanna, who could probably have almost any man in the world—either available or unavailable, but—at risk of being slandered, I get it.
Sometimes, when you’re fighting a war—especially one of love—you can’t get caught up in
the little battles.
And I think Rihanna’s in it to win this one. For the long haul.
