‘Wanting a billionaire doesn’t make me a Gold Digger.’ – LisaRaye

lisaraye-beauty-shop-movie-premiere-arrivals-kI7lhaSingle Ladies actress LisaRaye is not shy about the fact that she enjoys the finer things, which is why it’s not totally surprising when she says that she wants to be with a billionaire. While some would take her desire to be with a wealthy man as an admission of being a gold digger, she says this couldn’t be further from the truth. In an interview with Sister 2 Sister, she says:

“Why is that considered a gold digger? Do we say that when the White girls say that? Do we say that when we take our kids to the Ivy League school and they go to bar mitzvahs and all of those social events? But when we’re Black, they got to be, ‘She’s a gold digger.’ How is that?”

She went on to describe what she believes makes a woman a gold digger.

“I think that a gold digger is a woman that wants to be taken care of, but she’s not bringing anything to the table. She just wants you to do what you’re supposed to do for her and she’s not feeling she needs to do anything.”

The 46-year-old beauty added that couples should be equally yoked.

“I don’t feel that that’s right because, to me, as much as you want to receive you have to learn how to give as well and appreciate that gift of being able to give. That’s a blessing to be able to do that. So if you are being blessed by having this person in your life and vice versa, then you both are going to succeed together because he’s evenly yoked with you.”

What are your thoughts?

    Sweetheart I’ve got news for you. Even when the white girl says that, we’ll still call her a gold digger.
    What exactly are you bringing to the table? He is an established billionaire, I’m assuming in dollars for that matter. Are you a billionaire? Are you even a millionaire? 1-10million don’t count in this case, he is a freaking billionaire.
    Don’t bring race into this matter, it only establishes your dumbness.
    Oh one more thing, what in your equally annoying, Obama hating colleagues’ name has kids going to ivy league schools got to do with gold digging?

    Still on the haunt for a ‘money bag’ at 46 when the money bag has a choice of getting himself a younger chick, then he’ll pick you? Hmmmn……….., I think not! Your biological clock’s ticking dearest, wake up from your slumber. On the other hand, you may be lucky like Ana-Nicole but even she was younger.

    This low self esteem issues that blacks battle with, thereby necessitating the need to compare themselves with whites beats me silly. Its so ridiculous.
