Sonja And Willie Sitting In A…Restaurant

|

Everything leading up to the extended scene above from this week’s Brandy & Ray J: A Family Business was thick with drama: Brandy’s clash her manager Ryan, Sonja’s dizzy spell, Sonja’s unwillingness to let go of the family business, Sonja’s unwillingness to get in the car, etc. It was then a nice relief to come upon this scene of unadulterated sweetness, in which Willie serenades his wife with a song he wrote for her. He even made her cry (we never thought we’d see the day!). Adorbs, y/y?

    Willie is too sweet. I think it is wonderful that after all this time, he is still in love with Sonja. I hope they get a chance to rekindle their relationship now that Brandy and Ray J are grown. I loved the song!!! He is a really great guy!

  2. Shelby J says:

    I am so glad that Brandy called Ryan out today, he is all about Ray. They better not slip on Brandy because she is on fire and she still had it on lock. I got goose bumps when I heard my girl rap with Timbaland.

    I was also so happy to see Sonja come to Brandy when she was crying, you can really see that she is trying to mend things with Brandy and they are trying to have a better relationship.

    Why is Ray J always talking about he is keeping it real, when in all honesty he is not keeping it real. He can handle the party business and leave the singing to Brandy.

    BRANDI, I LIKE YOU, LOOKING AT THE SHOW, YOU ARE RUDE, YOU ARE A DIVA TO THE TENTH POWER. MONEY DOES NOT MAKE YOU TALK TO PEOPLE ANYMORE. YOU TREAT YOUR MOM LIKE CRAP. DO YOU REALIZE HOW YOU MADE IT YOU WERE 15, A MINOR YOU NEEDED YOUR MOMS PERMISSION TO DO ANYTHING. YOU HAVE NOT HAD A CD IN MONTHS AND SUNDAY, YOU CAN GET MORE BEES WITH HONEY THAN YOU KNOW WHAT. HAVE A LITTLE RESPECT FOR OTHERS PLEASE. THE LAW OF THE LAND DONT DISRESPECT YOUR MOM. YOU NEED ANGER MANAGEMENT. IM NOT LOOKING FORWARD TO YOUR NEW MUSIC, RAY J I WILL BUY. YELLING AT PEOPLE WONT GET YOU ANYWHERE, BUT A LOT OF NO THANKS. YOUR ATTITUDE SUCKS

    Watching the show right now and I must say…I think Brandy is in denial about the part SHE has played in where her career is: she is a mom now and lets not forget all the foolishness that played itself out regarding her daughter’s father and her not being married (the mtv special/lies)etc. In addition to that the whole “brand nu” rap idea is lame. The rap game is already falling off, so what she’s trying to do with that would come off as a gimic.
    Furthermore the music business is fickle, so truth be told she’s not what’s hot anymore. Ray J is younger, more trendy and is “currently” riding the wave of his prior reality shows. Just my thoughts. Regardless I wish them both the best.

    The father is such a sexy, considerate man. The mother is not deserving of such a wonderful man.

  6. William Sims Jr says:

    I hate the damn show

  7. sexybb says:

  8. TB says:

    All I have to say it that in life couples do come to part in their life that they forget what bought them together. I love Willie Sr. for letting Sonya know that “baby I do not want to grow old with no one else but you.” She has been a big part in her kids life and Ms. Norwood, if you are reading this, its time to enjoy your life now. Your kids are grown and they will continue to find their way until the end of their time. Its time to for you to enjoy your life with your husband. In watching the show for the past few episodes, your children have grown, but as Willie Sr. stated once your gone, everyone will continue to live. Enjoy your life and don’t let that man go!

    He’s a keeper!

    I like watching this show, because i really love brandy’s music, she is absolutely talented when it comes to her music, i can’t stress that enough.. As for her little brother, to be honest there is nothing musically talented about him, he just sucks so bad it is pathetic to say the least and i am not saying this because i am hating or anything like that i am jus speakin the truth…. ray j is a stuck up spoilt little mama’s boy, the only way he makes his money is by being paid to party, and coming up with stupid shows like for the love of ray j.. when he said to brandy’s friend you need to check my bank account to me that was very concited of him, especially coming from someone who really isn’t doin so well in the music industry, so if i were him i would jus shut my mouth up.., sonja favours ray j and that is so sad when brandy is the one who is makin her live the life she is, due to her music and what not….. i think sonja should treat brandy fairly as well and not let ray j get away with everything, like the episode where the stripper came to the office , for one brandy n her dad had nothin to do with it, but for some reason brandy was the main target of tht incident when it should have been ray j, which isn’t fair.. brandy love your music, this rappin thing well we’ll see how far it takes you, but i love you for the music you sing, and not for the rappin, but follow your heart on this one….. ray j if i were you instead of tryin to check pple about your money situation and who u made and what not, i would jus take a chill pill coz brotha the only reason u r knwn is becoz of ur big sis brandy, afta all we only knw u as brandy lil brother, so chill out, u really haven’t done ne thing that has put u on the map, except that one weak song, wht’s it called?? ahhhh yes one wish, so boring, at least that kinda put you on the map, bt not on some level you r tryin to elevate yourself to… b humble and relax, n pls start actin your age, n stop hidin behind ur mother all the time, sonja stop spoilin this grown **&%@&%$+*+*++^ boy, he becomes very annoyin to watch… same way you threat brandy do to ray j too

  10. Poetic says:

    I don’t care what anyone says. Ray J isn’t even on Brandy’s level as a singer. There are SO MANY more male singers who are much more talented and attractive. Even though he’s her brother, doing a duo with him is a killer move because she has to sing on his level, which is just average or below. He sings as if he’s almost whispering. WTF? His arrogance is annoying. He acts like a spoiled, greedy, materialistic brat. He acts as if everyone should be bowing down to him. He said, “Check my bank account.” For real! I wish the best for both of them, really. I would love for Brandy to be back on top. Regardless of what has happened in the past, she’s still young enough and she can stil sing. It’s funny how I can remember her songs, but not Ray J’s.

  11. A.B. says:

    Hi, I`m A.B, from P.R, and I was wondering how or what do I have to do, to get a meeting. With Sonja, I think she`s a great manager, and every artist like me wishes to have people like her on oure side. So, really I’m looking forward for this meeting.

    wad up

    wad up me chillin

  14. Clarence says:

    wait a minute, i’m sorry but Brandy your a actress and a very good actress, most singers and rapper’s are trying to be actors and actress,in which you’re already a actress i’m just wondering if you’re putting all of your energy in the right place, just think about it the music industry isn’t the same , and most black people like watching T.V and Movies , just maybe you should focus more on movies, i believe you could be a pretty good story teller, you and Ray have a story to tell, book and movie deal, and you can still roll your profits back into the family business , where you can then find and develope new talent

  15. lisa jackson says:

    Thank you sonja for giving your husband a chance to love you again. Do you know how many women wishes they had a man like yours. slow down sonja i have four kids and i understand where you are coming from its the point of knowing your kids and you feel like they are’nt ready yet but just keep on praying god will fix it for you especially where you can spend more time with you husband. In the situation you’re can lead to a stroke are a heartattack so take it easy and be with your hubby your hubby isss a handsome man.lol

  16. Monique says:

    It’s beautiful to see true love in this world, in the industry. Willie I would call you a smooth mo fo, but you were just keeping real with your lady. You’re a great man and I wish in the future if I get crabby with my man he reminds me why our two souls joined and why we fell in love in the first place. I’ll be watching.

    keep on rockin in the free world :)

    Why are you foling around with ray j. you are your own star let him do ray j and brandy get back to doing brandy, isnt it obvious that you were fine, he is coattailing off of you. Porn stars are never successful at more than one thing. Brandy please hurry back the business needs you not brandy and ray j. He is not a star, who wants to hear his music. Not me. You are a great sister for fooling with him may be once you’re done with this he will see that maybe he should be helping to manage you

  18. jay mroton says:

    sorry i meant fooling around with ray j is a disaster.
