Well, well well. What do we have here? Kirk and Rasheeda sitting down for an interview…together. Just as their marriage is unraveling on our tv screens every Monday night, the two are hitting the interview circuit. They sat down with an radio program in Atlanta, Streetz Morning Grind, and discussed why Kirk asked Rasheeda to get a blood test and why Rasheeda thinks he really came at her sideways.
Then in the second part of their interview, the two speak on whether they’re together right now and whether or not they want to be married to one another.
First Rasheeda explains why Kirk came at her the wrong way.
“It’s like we’ve been in a marriage for a long time and you know how it can get. It can get bad. And unfortunately ours played out in front of the world. He’s said some stuff that made me want to go in, in in. But I’m looking at it like, I’m in a place in my life where I’m so secure– for him to come at me in the crazy ways and say some of the crazy stuff he’s said. I’m really looking at him like ‘You need to deal with your issues because it’s you.’ A lot times when men come at you sideways with them crazy little remarks and little smart comments, it’s their own insecurities and something he needs to get straight.”
Then Kirk explains how he felt about Rasheeda’s mom confronting him.
“It was one of them things where I was saying what was on my mind. Then Rasheeda mom all in the marriage. She was going off on me like she was my mother. But she don’t know what I know. She don’t be where you [Rasheeda] be. She don’t know where your joint be.”
You know what– cuz he sounds like a fool.
Kirk explains why he asked Rasheeda to get a blood test
Three years ago, all of a sudden, I get a phone call. Somebody says yo I need you to get a blood test, I think this child may be yours. SO another man is raising a child. I go take the little swab test, it’s my son. So I found out I had a kid three years ago. For me as a guy, you can’t always believes what a woman tells you.
If that scarred you, I’m sorry that that scarred you but don’t come at me sideways like that. Something wrong with you.
Then in the second part of their interview, they get down to the current state of their relationship.
Are ya’ll good now?
Kirk: I’m working on it. That’s what I can say.
Rasheeda: I ain’t did nothing. I’m very pregnant and trying to stay focused and stay strong and stay stress free so I don’t have any problems during this whole little term.
Do you still want to be married?
Kirk: Of course. I’m working on it. I’m trying to find myself back in a decent place. But I’m not going to be working on it and somebody telling me, ‘Go do whatever and You do you.’ I’ma try but it gotta be both people.”
