This coming Wednesday,

Terry McMillan will FACE OFF with her gay husband

...on OPRAH.

Terry

Now I love Terry and all, but to me, this is looking very suspicious.

Just in time for NOVEMBER SWEEPS...Terry McMillan and her battling Gay Husband are "peaceful enough" to get themselves booked on the same show?

Huhm.

And in the past...to think I argued with my beloved ABM when he suggested that Terry's divorce was just a perfectly timed Publicity Ploy to get attention for her new book.

I didn't think that could be possible, but the sudden "Boxing Match" on OPRAH is quite odd.

One thing's for sure.

This thread should be blowing up on Wednesday after the sparks have flown.

I'm going to break my rule and actually watch T.V.!! :-)

As a thinking human being and a BLACK man I am appalled.

But it is a piece of marketing genius.

I won't watch it, I'll just wait for you guys to bring the highlights.

I think the whole thing was sick. I can not believe Terry did that, for money, for book sales or to "cleanse".

She definitely put herself out there in a train-wreck-sort-of-way, however, I think she was sharing the unadulterated truth of what it's like to be cheated on--and in that manner. I respect her honesty and courage--most people are too fake to be so brutally raw.

It's obvious she is still hurt and angry. However, I don't understand how she couldn't tell that dude was/is gay!!!! I know she said he is "sensous"--but damn--he was sashayin' in their wedding video and holding his hands real funny--and his voice and overall mannerisms are completely feminine.


I totally side with her--I hope he never gets ANY of her money--not even a penny!!!!

Ms. Kola,

Did you ever have your story told? I am assuming this is the Kola Boof of the Bin Ladin Boofs?
