SAY WHAT?: Tammy Rivera Calls Women Who Leave Their Men For Cheating Weak
Well this is VERY interesting. In a recent interview with Bleu Bombshell, reality TV star and businesswoman Tammy Rivera, who is the wife to rapper Waka Flocka, spoke about her new business ventures, living life in the public eye and being a mother.
But what will really stand out his her statement to why she chose to stay with Waka Flocka, after he publicly admitted to cheating on her. When she was asked about the pros and cons of being in a relationship on TV she stated:
“Some of the cons are being criticized and ridiculed from people who really don’t know your story, they don’t really know the truth. You only see what we allow you to see. That’s why so many people are so guarded with their relationship because they don’t want to be judged.
The pros that I would say on the flip side of that are those people who understand, and who are mature enough to understand that this is the world we live in, and we are grown people we are not judgemental. They love you for being real and honest and open to who you are. That’s the thing that I love. More people come up to me and they say thank you. The people that you’re able to help with your story. That’s the pros and that outweighs anything.”
Then she was asked why she stayed with Waka after he admitted to cheating on her:
“Because my husband is a good man. He’s a great man, and I think in today’s society everything is so disposable. Times are not the same, women nowadays you know they say oh let me just do this, I can go out and find me another man, niggas aint nothing. You know, all of that, and I get it. But then on the other side you have men who aren’t growing up with fathers, not making excuses for men to cheat, but you have men who never seen what a household is supposed to look like – my husband was never in a married household.”
“He had early stardom with his career, I think Waka was in his early 20s mid 20s when he dropped his first hit. So you have all these groupies, you have all these things but despite all of that, behind closed doors -this man loves me to death and I know he loves my child to death. He does anything for us. So, my mom always told me– you can find a man who can financially take care of you, you can find a man who might not be a cheater, might have it all together, might of grew up with a father in their household, but it’s hard to find real love and a person who genuinely loves you and who is willing to change, my husband was willing to change for his family. So why would I give up on my husband. I’m not that type.”
Tammy then stated that women who leave their men for cheating are weak:
“I think that’s weak of a woman to do that. It’s easier to walk away as opposed to than to speaking up! No we’re going to fight for this we got married. My family is worth fighting for.”
