Earlier this week, we told you that former Flavor of Love contestant Chandra “Deelishis” Davis aka London Charles was denying allegations that she injured herself while fleeing an attack from her estranged husband. The 35-year-old Detroit native recently made an attempt to clear the air and do away with the circulating rumors in an interview with Hot 107.5′s Big Greg.
The DJ asked her the question that many are pondering the answer to, which is whether or not domestic violence had anything to do with the incident that recently occurred involving her husband. She responded, “No.” She also denied ever being abused.
“It’s crazy to be ridiculed for something that happened to me. I’m not a domestic violence victim, but I’ve been victimized in this circumstance. For me to be the person that has to bear the weight of all of it, I’m a survivor. I’m going to be okay.”
Davis also made it a point to address the overwhelming amount of people who taunted her on social media regarding the incident.
“Someone sent me a tweet that said, ‘Deelishis now you know how Rihanna feels.’ That’s not funny. It’s not funny and it’s sort of embarrassing. Everybody has their own domestic situations, whether it’s just an aggressive argument or it gets physical. I mean everybody has that. It’s unfortunate that when you’re a celebrity, your stuff has to be aired everywhere.”
“What if this really happened? What if I fail-jumped from a building or a second-floor window? Is that funny? Is that something that you joke about? Is that something that you make your topic of conversation to the point where I’m ridiculed for it?”
Davis also discussed why the allegations bothered her so much.
“You don’t want to be known as the person who is beaten or has been subjected to domestic violence even though its not true, I don’t want to be associated with anything like that.”
We have to agree, domestic violence is no laughing matter.

Yesterday, we told you that many speculated that the circumstances surrounding a recent injury suffered by former “Flavor of Love” star, Deelishis aka Chandra “London Charles” Davis had something to do with the model being assaulted by her estranged husband, Orlando Gordon. The speculations didn’t exactly sit well with Davis for two reasons. One, she insisted that she never jumped out of a window to escape being assaulted by her estranged husband. Two, she expressed that she doesn’t owe the public any explanations for what goes on in her personal life. The 35-year-old Detroit native recently utilized a few of her social networking pages to deny the rumor and blast those who are spreading it, beginning with her Twitter page.
She shared a few words about the drama with her followers on Instagram as well.
“I DONT ‘OWE’ ANYBODY SH**, ESPECIALLY NOT ANY EXPLANATIONS BUT THIS RADIO STATION OUT OF TOWN JUST BURNED MY BISCUITS IF I HAD BALLS THEY’D BE SQUEEZED TO THE MAX PISSED! STOP JUST REPORTING ANYTHING YOU HEAR! I HAD A LITTLE ACCIDENT YOU FU**ER, IT HAPPENS IM GOOD, IM NOT SUPERWOMAN LEAPING FROM TALL BUILDINGS AND FOR THE LIFE OF ME I AM NOTTTTTTTTTTTTT SCREWING DATING FU****G LICKING TRICKING ANYTHING CLOSE TO THAT WITH @therealmichaelblackson(SCREAMING TO THE OF MY LUNGES [Lungs]) CAN A B**** LIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVE (NOW MY HEAD JUST SPENT AROUND LIKE THE EXORCIST …….OK IM BACK…AND NOW I ONLY WANT WORLD PEACE MY LOVES ,” she posted.
If you’re unsure as to why she’s denying romantic involvement with Michael Blackson, the reason is that Blackson was also in Davis’s home sleeping in another room when the alleged dispute first began.
Davis filed for divorce against Orlando Gordon last year following his indictment on federal drug trafficking charges. He was out on bond at the time of the alleged assault, reports The Jasmine Brand. We can certainly understand her frustration with false information being spread around, but according to Detroit News, police reports actually confirm that there was a violent domestic dispute that occurred in Chandra’s home involving Gordon and that she jumped out of the window to escape Gordon’s attack. Whatever the case, we hope she gets well soon.
What are your thoughts on Chandra’s reaction to the media?
Remember our recent story about Deelishis who denied that she beaten up by a bunch of angry strippers?
Turns out the big bootied model and reality TV show star was telling the truth, but what she didn’t say was that she was assaulted by her estranged husband, Orlando Gordon.
The 35-year-old Detroit area (Farmington Hills) resident posted a message on her social network site saying she tripped on icy stairs while wearing expensive designer shoes.
“I am fine & will be even better in a few days!” she wrote.

I don’t know about everyone else, but it seems to me that there has recently been such a loose usage of words like “classy,” and “lady” in our society. While watching TV there is usually a gaggle of women who not only discuss their classiness with quotes like “I’m a classy azz b!tch…” -Catya Washington of Bad Girls Club but defend it, like my favorite quote, “I am a fucking lady…” courtesy of London Charles, aka Deelishis, from Flavor of Love 2. The debate is so prominent now that you can find women in stores, on the street, or in classrooms spouting out about how “classy” they are.
My husband once told me about a time he took his grandmother grocery shopping and they ran into his old friend, Theresa.* (The name has been changed to protect the ignorant.) She and her three year old daughter were in the checkout lane when she saw a girl that she had been beefing with. The argument covered a myriad of topics, including ugliness, stupidity and promiscuity. When the topic of “hoe-ness” was discussed Theresa adamantly exclaimed, “Whatever, b—-, I’m classy! You’re the one who…” and before she could finish her sentence Theresa, her daughter, and other innocent bystanders promptly got a face full of pepper spray, courtesy of the girl she was arguing with. While her eyes were burning with pepper spray, Theresa blindly swung her fists in the girl’s direction, not checking on her daughter or anything. Classiness at its finest, I suppose.
It makes me wonder, what institutes a woman into having class? Is it dependent on socio-economic factors, like how much money you have in the bank, or having expensive (or expensive looking) things? When these topics of class break out, there seems to be an accompaniment of revealing the names of designers that the woman in question is wearing or how much she spent on such objects. Bragging about “red bottoms” and Gucci paraphernalia seems to come with the territory of identifying class these days. Now, I’m not saying that you shouldn’t buy your favorite designers if you have the money. Just know that buying them doesn’t mean that you’re buying class. You’re just buying material objects. A woman who has a large wardrobe, full of things made by Chanel, Fendi, and Gucci, could be the same woman who abandons her children, or leaves the grandmother to raise them for her while she’s out in the streets. Is that class? Paris Hilton has millions of dollars and is able to afford all the top designers; but honestly, is she typically regarded as a woman who has class?
When I think of classy women my mind immediately goes to women like Dorothy Dandridge and Eartha Kitt. Classiness wasn’t defined by what they had, but by persevering through tumultuous times with a level of grace and elegance. Their behavior was an indicator of maturity and inner strength. A woman who used to walk away from a fight was considered the classy one by society’s standards. But now, we have women who are trying to show class by yelling the words “lady” and “classy” as a battle cry to all who will listen, before they pounce on the offending lady/ladies.
But hey, maybe that’s just me.
But what do you think, readers? Are women using these terms too loosely?

By now you might have learned that former “Flavor of Love” winner, Deelishis, whose real name is Chandra Davis, will appear on the new reality show, “Motor City Wives.” While we could write a whole post about this fact alone, this one is a bit more serious. In a very candid conversation, Deelishis details how she was raped at 18. In the video below she explains how it all transpired.
Wow on so many levels.
First off, I want to commend her for sharing this story. So many women and young girls find themselves in situations like this and never share this information for fear or shame. Secondly, I have wonder what kind of man she married? Under no circumstances should a woman be blamed for being raped. Regardless of what someone initially allows, the moment the word/s “stop,” “no,” and more explicitly, “I don’t want to have sex with you” come out of someone’s mouth, you’re done. While I want to shake some sense into her husband, I know that there are plenty of ignorant people who believe women “set themselves up” for rape based on trivial things like what they wore, where they allowed the men to take them etc. Even the woman in the video said something about men being different from women.
Sure men are different from women but I just can not believe that a man doesn’t, can’t or won’t understand what a woman means when she tells him no. A man who doesn’t stop after the word “no,” is a rapist. Point, blank period.
While I’m glad she didn’t allow him or the other ignorant woman in the room to make her question her lack responsibility in the situation, I sincerely hope they had a legit conversation about this traumatic event and what it feels like to be taken advantage of in this manner. If anyone should empathize with her, it should her husband.

See what Shaunie and Andy Cohen started? A new reality show is attempting to come to TV and it is digging up some women we haven’t heard from or seen in a long time.
“Motor City Wives” is the latest “wives” saga in development, and it will feature “prominent” women in Detroit who, in my opinion, had humble beginnings. The stars are Ayanna Kilpatrick-Ferguson, sister of former Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick; author Valencia R. Williams; Sara Stokes, from MTV’s Making the Band; and Deelishis, the winner of Flavor of Love 2. Now you see why prominent is in quotations.
It’s not clear what exactly these women will have to talk—or most likely throw drinks and fight about—but leaked details say Deelishis will get confronted by Ayanna’s husband about possibly sleeping around with her brother Kwame.
The show hasn’t been picked up by a network yet, so there’s still hope that this series may never see the light of day. But even so, I find it disturbing that women are literally trying to get on TV now by shooting their own demos, and undoubtedly creating their own drama.
Would you check out this show if it makes it on air?

When you were a little kid, did you want to be like fifteen different things when you got older? That’s many of our stories, but somewhere along the way we start believing that we have to choose and that we can only be one thing. The scenario is a bit different for celebrities though. Money, power and access play a huge role in what you’ll be able to see and experience in this life. Once a celebrity has reached a certain amount of success, it seems they start to branch out. And that’s a beautiful thing. We should all pursue all of our goals. But in some cases it’s better to stick to what you know. Here are some celebrities whose extracurricular activities left us scratching our heads.
