For Women Who Want The Ballerific Life!
We've been posting so much on Kerry Rhodes and his assistant/alleged boyfriend Russell "Hollywood" Simpson a lot this week so when the opportunity to talk to Hollywood myself, I had to take it. What an interview it was! To clear some things up Russell is Kerry's EX boyfriend. He and Kerry dated while Kerry played for the Arizona Cardinals. Russell says that he did not leak the initial photos of them together but Kerry was definitely aware that they were being taken. Russell says is not a jilted lover, just upset that Kerry tried to "play" him. He feels that when this news broke, Kerry should have kept quiet instead of lying and saying he was straight. He also confirms Kerry was in the clips from his reality show.
I don't even have enough words for an intro. I'll let the interview speak for itself. Check out some excerpts below and then listen to the ENTIRE interview!
Russell On How He Met Kerry
"I met Kerry about a year and a half ago when I went to Arizona for an assistant job. Me and my friend Alton went to Kerry's game. Kerry was injured at the time so he came up to our suite. He was interested in knowing who I was. He was looking for a new assistant and was interested in me and Alton. He wanted us to assist him."
"I got to know Kerry and we became very close. I moved in with Kerry at his home in Arizona. At first we were just friends and we were getting to know eachother. Then we got into a relationship. We were in a relationship for a whole year. I was there, people knew who I was, they saw me as his top assistant. I handled everything for him. No one went to Kerry for anything."
On Who Initiated The Relationship
"Of course he came on to me. I'm too fabulous to come on to anybody. That's not what I do. I have a lot of men that come on to me. I don't come on to men because I don't know what time it is for you. I would never come on to a man. Honestly, a lot of gay guys are like me. A lot of gay guys don't come on to guys. It's always the other way around. It's always the manly ones. Of course I wouldn't come on to anybody. Yes, I thought he was attractive but I thought he liked girls."
"It did not take place instantly. I'm a classy b*tch. You have to show me what time it is and he did. I was with it. It took us almost two months to sleep together. He made the first move -- as in kissing. Kerry says I was his first man he's been with. Doesn't matter, it still makes you gay."
On The Photos Leaking & Talking To TMZ
"They said 'Well maybe he he loved him like a little brother. Listen, if he loved me like a little brother, he f**ked me like a wife!" and that's just me being real with you. People knew something was up but they didn't know. It was just not normal for a guy to be like we were. You can see in the picture. A picture says a lot of things. You could see in the pictures that it was something there. The first set of pictures, I don't know how they got out because I did not put them out. If you go on my Facebook page you will see the same pictures but I always crop him out because it was nobody's business. Now what pissed me off about the whole situation is when he and I stopped talking and the pics got out. He said that he was NOT gay. To me he shouldn't have said sh**. If you're not going to tell the truth, don't try to make me look stupid. This is what I say: You can play Nintendo, You play XBox, You play lottery, You Don't Play Hollywood! I think he made a comment that he's as straight as an arm. An arm has an elbow dummy! What really set me off is when he had Alton the assistant call TMZ, say he was Me and say Kerry and I are just friends, he's like my brother."
On Their Breakup
"When Mike put out the pilot for the reality show people could see that it was something there. We decided to step back a little bit because people know. It wasn't a really bad break up. It's turned bad now and I'm at the point I don't give a damn. I'm not going to cover for Kerry."
On Kerry Taking Care Of Him Financially
"We went on a lot of trips, out of the country, Hawaii, whatever.
"He loved me so much that he did spend a lot of money. He definitely took care of me."
"Kerry did do a lot for me. He bought me a lot of things. He bought me the new Infiniti truck. I'm the type of person, if you buy me something, you're putting it in MY name. If you're buying me something you're paying it off. He definitely did the TWO things. You're not going to buy me nothing and it still be in your name because then it's your car. You're not going to buy me nothing and leave me with the payments. I don't think so!"
On Gay Players In Sports
"I just want girls to know my sh** is for real! This sh** happened! You can think that you got a boyfriend and all that sh** but THIS sh** is for real! It happened. I think that a lot of girls are lost because they play football. That don't mean nothing. You'd be better getting yourself a boy cheerleader."
"This is how I work. I don't date boys with girlfriends and I don't date men with kids. I'm selfish. I'm not the type to go with the downlow brothers. Either you're down with me or you ain't. Kerry was NOT messing with girls when he was with me. He was with me every single day, all day long. I have pictures. I have text messages."
"You can sit around and think your boyfriend ain't doing nothing. He probably ain't doing nothing with another girl because he's probably with a boy."
You guys have to listen to the interview in it's entirety! This is only a small bit of our conversation!
