If I Could Talk To Lisa Raye...

Dear Lisa,

Lisa Raye, I actually vision you being an Oscar winner, but honey, you have got to start looking inward and examining who the real you is. I just don't think you GET IT yet. You have had a good life, yes. Better than the average person. But at the same time, I think there is none so blind as those who do not see. In life, we are challenged by things, and if you lost everything...WHO WOULD YOU BE?

Not a day goes by that I don't think about having a conversation with Ms. Lisa Raye. She's got a hit reality show, a new prime time show, Single Ladies Stacey Dash LisaRaye VH1 Show
Hello Beautiful, and she's got a new jean line. The woman has been on her hustle ever since her marriage ended. Nothing seems to get in her way. I love her drive, determination and confidence, but....and it's a big BUT, there are a few things that annoy me about Lisa, and I feel it inhibits her from truly evolving into a great actress/person.

Lisa is extremely narcissistic, superficial, unrealistic in her view of the opposite sex, a pseudo-intellectual, egotistical, arrogant, and talks a little too much. She could really use some education regarding the fact that the world doesn't revolve around her. When her "so called" friends, Star Jones and Vivica Fox didn't return her phone calls, uh...what did she expect? You attract exactly what you are? Did she return phone calls? And were they really her friends? For those who've seen Star and Vivica in action, we know that's a big NO.

But, like attracts like, right? thinks the universe tells us in various ways how we need to grow.
What would you say to her if you could have a conversation with her?

Lisa Raye is a black woman who I dearly respect. It is not a crime for her to have high standards and to regard herself as the 'diva' that she truly. I wish that more black women would feel like she does. She wants and expects only the best.

You can have high standards, but don't act surprised when you aren't attracting the quality of friends and men you desire if your focus in on nothing of substance.

At times, she comes across as arrogant, narcissistic and shallow.

Lisa has game. No doubt about it, but she also needs to grow more as a person.

That's just my opinion.

P.L.E.A.S.E.... Liked her before I heard her real life mouth going. Sometimes seeing the real person live and unclose isn't in their best interest ....
