Shay’s Still Defending Scrappy And Their Relationship: ‘He’s Not Perfect At All And Neither Is Your Man. So Don’t Judge’
Wait, did Shay just take a page out of the Mimi handbook of excuses for staying with a foul man?
Remember when Mimi tried to tell everyone she wasn’t the only girl in the world whose man ever cheated on her (while ignoring the fact she’s the only one who stayed for 15 years)? Shay is sounding eerily similar defending the way Scrappy played her at the “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta” reunion last season. WRUG Media group tried to get to the bottom of the ridiculous hold Scrappy seems to have on Shay’s life — even after he proposed to another woman right in front of her face — and all she had to say for herself and Scrappy is that he’s not perfect (stating the obvious) and he’ll always have a place in her life (but why?).
Check out the highlights:
The current status of her relationship with Scrappy
“Scrappy will always be apart of my life. I will tell you that. Like I said, it started from a friendship and we’ll always continue on. That’s something beautiful that we have. Sometimes I feel like we shouldn’t have stepped over that boundary of becoming more that just friends but it happened. I can’t take it back. It is what it is. And I have a genuine love for him. But he will always be apart of my life.”
What she’s attracted to in Scrappy
“Everything. He’s a great friend first of all. We’ve been friends for over 5 years. And I think in a relationship, you should become friends before you’re lovers. And that’s something that we had that was very special and that we still have. He’s a cutie pie and he’s genuine, and he’s sweet and he’s nice. He’s not perfect at all and neither is your man (points at camera). So don’t judge.”
If she was humiliated by Scrappy’s proposal
“Well of course I was. I think anybody in that situation would be. But I can’t give you everything because there’s a lot that’s happening on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta season two. Um, there is no marriage. I will tell you that. But that’s not my business. He’s my friend and that’s just it. Whatever happened happened. Sometimes you have to learn to move forward and leave the past the past. And like I said, he’s not perfect and neither are you. Neither am I. I’ve doing lots of things in my past that I will take to my grave you know what I mean? So it just is what it is. I’m a forgiving person and it just is what it is.”
On people thinking Momma Dee is manipulating her
“Um, I think opinions are just exactly what it is, it’s an opinion. And I respect everybody’s opinion. I don’t have to agree with you to respect it. I love Momma Dee to death and she loves me. And at the end of the day, I make my own decisions. Yes, Momma Dee wants Scrappy and I together for her own reasons, you’ll have to ask her. But she comfortable just knowing that we are [her and Scrappy] definitely friends. And you just never know what could happen in the future. We are just friends.”
I wonder what Erica thinks about Scrappy always being a part of Shay’s life…although after last night’s episode, maybe that’s no longer a concern of hers.
