Let’s just get right into it, shall we? Relationship adviser Tionna Smalls recently made another appearance on the talk show “Bethenny,” and during a heated battle of the sexes debate on whether men can be monogamous, she dropped this gem:
“Men are going to cheat. If you put it in your mind that a man is not going to cheat you’re fooling yourself — especially a man with money. I’m not saying you have to accept it, but you have to respect it. That’s number one. Number two, you better hope your man is just humping another chick and not falling in love mentally with another chick.”
I can already guestimate one of the first questions you have, which is who is this chick, so let me go ahead and lay out her resume. Tionna was the relationship coach tasked with helping TLC member Chilli find love on the VH1 reality show, “What Chilli Wants.” She also starred on MTV’s “Girl, Get Your Mind Right!” and is currently the host of a new online radio show titled, “Tionna Talks.”
Now why should you care? That I can’t answer for you, other than to ask whether you believe Tionna’s conviction? Men and cheating tend to go hand-in-hand in a lot of women’s minds, and you can tell by the passion with which Tionna states her case in the video below that she clearly is a strong believer in the doctrine of the male philanderer. But while all men have the capacity to cheat — and likely have at least once or twice in the past — I’m not completely certain a woman is fooling herself is she believes the man who made a commitment to her won’t cheat on her. But if that is the case, Tionna is right that us ladies don’t have to accept it, but we also don’t have to respect it either. There’s a simple thing all men who are incapable of being monogamous can do to make everyone’s lives easier and that is stay single. That’s about the only choice that’s respectable when it comes to this topic. But that’s just my personal belief.
Check out Tionna in the video clip below and tell us what you think. Are all men going to cheat eventually?
