A gentle snow is falling over New York, and I’m wrapped snug in a blanket with a hot mug of tea, reading about Chris Brown and Rihanna going public again at a Lakers game. In short, all is right in the world.
There’s nothing I like better than being warm when it’s cold out, or getting a late Christmas card in the mail, or hearing that an battered woman has gone back to her abuser! That’s the thing about this season…it really warms your heart. Sometimes you start to think that the world is a hopeless place, but then you remember that Breezy and RiRi found love in that hopeless place, and there’s literally nothing that you can do to stop it.
You can write indignant posts about it. You can do it every day, and there have been some weeks that I almost have, but nothing can keep these two crazy kids away from each other. It’s the age-old romantic story of a man who didn’t know what he had ’til it came back again with a big black eye and a bloody lip. It’s a beautiful world, one without consequences or shame, where you can not only continue your life as usual, but actually have a more successful career post-assault charges.
These two turtle doves have been dropping subtle hints at us for months now — appearing in various stages of undress on Instagram together, recording a song together called “Nobody’s Business”, and just blatantly being a couple — but they refuse to acknowledge what we all know. No word on why that would be. I’m sure it has nothing to do with the fact that Chris used Rihanna as his own human-shaped punching bag. Mmm. My heart is going all pitter-patter.
The two showed up together at the Lakers vs. Knicks game at the Staples Center last night. They sat next to each other courtside and left holding hands. You know, as you do when you want to make me, Alexis Rhiannon, completely overwhelmed by passionate feelings of…heart-melting romance. Or something.
Oh and the Lakers won 100 – 94. I guess in the middle of all that canoodling, they found some time to play a quick basketball game while no one was watching.
