LisaRaye enjoys the finer things and she’s not shy about it, which is why it’s not totally surprising when she says that she wants to be with a billionaire. While some would take the former First Lady of Turks and Caico’s desire to be with a wealthy man as an admission of being a gold digger, she says this couldn’t be further from the truth.
“Why is that considered a gold digger? Do we say that when the White girls say that? Do we say that when we take our kids to the Ivy League school and they go to bar mitzvahs and all of those social events? But when we’re Black, they got to be, ‘She’s a gold digger.’ How is that?” the “Single Ladies” actress questioned during an interview with Sister 2 Sister.
She went on to describe what she believes makes a woman a gold digger.
“I think that a gold digger is a woman that wants to be taken care of, but she’s not bringing anything to the table,” said LisaRaye. “She just wants you to do what you’re supposed to do for her and she’s not feeling she needs to do anything.”
The 46-year-old beauty added that couples should be equally yoked.
“I don’t feel that that’s right because, to me, as much as you want to receive you have to learn how to give as well and appreciate that gift of being able to give. That’s a blessing to be able to do that. So if you are being blessed by having this person in your life and vice versa, then you both are going to succeed together because he’s evenly yoked with you.”
I totally love LisaRaye and she makes reasonable points, but wanting to marry a billionaire still naturally gives off a bit of a gold digger vibe. But hey, who asked me?
