Each week that The Gossip Game airs, one of the show’s ambitious cast members will share their reactions to that Monday’s episode by writing a guest blog entry exclusively for VH1. Up to bat this week is Vivian Billings as she discusses the personal matter unveiled during episode five.
So Monday nights episode was a difficult one to watch. For starters, when I agreed to do this show it was under the pretense that the show would focus on my career, how I go about getting my stories, reporting the rumors, and how those rumors can sometimes affect my relationships with the artists and celebrities I write about. However, my storyline was switched up when Steph Lova decided to talk about one of my children’s sexuality.
Granted, Steph Lova was provoked by my cousin Star, but that’s who he is. That’s Star’s job to be a shock jock. This is what he’s known for and this is the way he has been portrayed over the years. This is nothing new to me. So it bothered me that when Star insinuated that I said Steph Lova was gay, that she would immediately throw my child into the equation without having asked me first if what Star was saying was true. If nothing else, I would have thought Steph Lova would’ve given me the benefit of the doubt, but she didn’t.
And while she wasn’t stating a fact, Steph Lova proceeded to talk about my son’s sexuality as if it was something to be shameful and disgusted of. This is what made me irate! So when I asked Steph Lova to meet with me, I have to admit it wasn’t to really talk. I had heard the interview Steph did with Star a week before our meeting and I dreamed of laying hands and feet on her. Mona begged and pleaded with me to remove my pins from my hair in an attempt to get a dialogue going between Steph and I, but unfortunately, Mona’s attempts at getting me to remove my hair pins and put on shoes went in vain and the end result was me spitting on her and getting detained by a number of security guards.
The reason for the spitting was purely out of disrespect. I wanted Steph to feel violated and while she cracks jokes on Twitter saying I didn’t spit on her, let’s face it, you had your shades on when you walked into the venue, but when you left, you didn’t have them on. So, so much for that lie.
At the end of the day, I was defending my child’s honor and nothing more. As a parent, I’m sure you’ll understand where I’m coming from when I reacted the way that I did. I do NOT regret anything I did when it comes to Steph Lova. In fact, if I could do it again, I would! That’s just how I’m feeling.
