Lisa Raye Gives Her Thoughts On Gold Diggers

We have this discussion here all of the time so it was nice to hear a non BA member discuss the topic of "Gold Diggers" and when a man or woman should be considered one. Should a person be considered a gold digger simply because they desire someone with money or is it deeper than that?

Lisa Ray sat down in an interview with Sister 2 Sister's Jamie Foster-Brown to discuss the misconceptions of Gold Diggers.

Jamie: What’s the biggest misconception about you?
LisaRaye: That I’m a gold digger.

Jamie: That ain’t no misconception. What the hell is that? You just said that you want a billionaire. What’s the difference?
LisaRaye: 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?

Jamie: What’s the difference between a gold digger and wanting to have a better life?
LisaRaye: 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. She just wants you to do what you’re supposed to do for her and she’s not feeling she needs to do anything.

Jamie: Mm-hmm. Yeah.
LisaRaye: 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.

What do you say? Do we agree with Lisa Raye?

I think that LisaRaye's response was very eloquent and ladylike. She read ms jaime for blood in a nice~nasty way! But I agree with everything she said. You have to be equally yoked and be able to give as much as you receive with any man, especially a baller.

So LisaRaye is a billionaire? So how is she equally yoked? I think all this dancing around the fact of being a gold digger continues the misconception that its a bad thing. If you want a man of means there is nothing wrong with that.

Lmao @ Lisa aiming for 'God's Throne'. She has to get an Arab for that. Just be careful though, Misick was tame and they don't play.

 Lisa raye is damn near 50 and still gold digging.

I liked her answer, I don't think she was saying SHE'S a billionaire, but she DOES in fact have her own money and can provide for herself. It's just nice to have a man that's over and above what you already have. That's not bein a gold digger. And she clearly explained what a gold digger is. A chick who really has nothing but what's a man to have and give her everything.

Ally having your own is understandable, but that doesn't make you equally yoked. That is not the same thing. Most women say that they don't want to date a man that makes less than them. If she is making $1 mil and she marries a dude making $5 mil she is marrying up, which is also understandable, but setting an amount and saying that you want a billionaire is gold digging. When the main objective of the relationship hinges on how much a man makes that is gold digging.   Again a concept that I don't have a problem with, but blurring the lines of its definition makes it sound like there is something wrong with it. Embrace your inner gold digger.

That's all I'm saying Luv! That is what I was saying about the hoe that's a hoe that we were protecting yesterday! CLAIM YOUR ISH!!!! Don't try to make it sound like it's something else or pretend to be some virtuous woman. Lisa should have said something like " I have placed a value on my feminine essence, my womanly attributes AND what I bring to the table. As such, I believe that my partner should be able to enhance the value I have placed on myself. In so doing, he provides the stability in a partnership that I have sought to create for myself as an individual." Lisa does have a career UNLIKE that gold digging THOT Evelyn. Eve couldn't even keep her shoe store open one second after Chad tweeted her. She brings NOTHING to the table besides cooch and she plays on low levels like having child support babies INSTEAD of at least setting her standards higher like Lisa and striving for BILLIONS. I'm not being "catty" I'm just saying there is nothing wrong with being a gold digger, just claim your ish.

In my opinion a gold digger is a woman who actively pursues men solely because of their wealth.
