More Media Whores Poppin Out of the Woodwork

Striving for relevancy, Robin Givens uses her only claim to fame to get out in the spotlight once more:

Robin Givens has a message for Rihanna: Get out now. The actress and ex-wife of former heavyweight champ Mike Tyson spoke about her own experience with domestic violence on “Larry King Live” Tuesday night, and told guest host Joy Behar that hearing about the pop star’s troubles with boyfriend Chris Brown brings back painful memories. “Even sitting now, you know, here with you, it shakes you up,” said Givens. “You know, you begin to sweat. You begin to feel sad all over. … It’s hard to sit here.”

Brown, 19, has been charged with two felonies after allegedly punching, choking and biting Rihanna, 21, on the day of the Grammy Awards. Sources report that the couple are back together.

Givens, who is now a spokesperson for the National Domestic Violence Hotline, called the similarities between her own story and other stories of abuse “amazing.”

“I find that my story is their story; their story is my story — down to the details,” she said. “He dragged me down the hall by my hair. He pulled me out of bed by my panties. He would like to choke me. He would kick.”

Givens described how Tyson’s emotional apologies made it difficult for her to walk away. “All of a sudden this person, this man that you love, that’s claiming his love for you, is crying, you know?” she said. “And then you’re consoling them. And it just becomes, I’ll never, ever, ever do it again. … I just love you so much. It’s so hard for me to handle how much I love you. And it just begins.”

Asked by Behar why she continued to stay with Tyson, Givens replied, “I was very bonded. And it’s hard to be bonded and save yourself at the same time.” Givens ended the interview with some parting advice for Rihanna. “The one thing I’d like to say to Rihanna, actually; as difficult as this all is, she does not have to answer to the media,” Givens said. “She doesn’t have to explain it. She has to take care of herself.”

How pathetic that ole girl is still harping on this tired story for some attention. Hey Robin, time to get a new hustle, and stop boring us with those stories of Iron Mike whipping that ass.

    I am a confessed Man Beater and I know who to get crazy with. Mike would not be one of them. I wouldn’t even date Mike because I would be afraid of him or Suge Knight.

  • BowTie-Pimp

    Doesnt she sort of look like rihanna in the picture

    Its all in the forehead

  • Mannie

    I THINK OT’S WRONG FOR A MAN TO PUT HIS HANDS ON A FEMALE BUT IFE MIKE DID HIT HER, SHE DESERVED IT.

    IF PEOPLE COULD NOT SEE THAT SHE WAS CLEARLY AFTER IS MONEY, AND TO RUINE HIS IMAGE, AND ALSO TARNISH HIS CAREER WITH THE HELP OF DON KING, THEN YOUR AN IDIOT.

    THIS WOMAN IS A PRIME EXAMPLE OF WHAT A LOT OF MEN WHO HAVE WEALTH FALL VICTIM TO. A CRAZY WOMAN WHO IS AFTER A GUYS MONEY AND NOT REALLY THERE FOR HIM AT HEART.

    AND LIKE IDIOTS,A LOT OF MEN FALL FOR THESE TYPE OF WOMAN, OHH SHE IS FINE, SHE HAS A NICE BODY, OHH I WOULD KILL THOSE DRAWS. AND THEN YOU END UP LIKE MIKE TYSON IN THE END, LONELY AND HEART BROKEN.

    I BELIEVE THE LAST VICTIM WAS TYRESE GIBSON.

  • pat

    not sure if robin got Mike for his miliions or not…im not mad at robin…cuz i know Mike whooped that ass….good she escaped with her life and hopefully with some dough

  • http://YAHOO.COM BROOKLYN

    Rihanna going to do what she want to do, people can tell her what to do but it’s her decison on how she feel about her boo.

  • She 4 real

    I saw her on the tube talking about it. I think he rattled something loose in Robin cuz she is a lil crazy!

  • STEFANY

    Every abused woman in America now has a story to tell in the wake of Rihanna and Chris Brown..I’m not saying what Mike did to Robin was right but she should shut the hell up she’s already had her time and we already know her story.

  • Sickofitt!

    Damm, I had a lot of typos in that post LOL.

  • c from stl

    Ok, no one and I do mean NO ONE deserves to get hit or have to deal with violence but this trollup does not get any respect from me. I saw her fake azz on Larry King last night and I was not impressed with her attempt to come off as the victim. Everyone knows that she was the queen of all golddiggers and had no good intentions towards Mike. Even though she does not deserve to get hit, she deserved the negativity that came her way because she definitely had it out for Mike. She tries to mask her dirty deeds by constantly harping on how he was violent towards her but she also was a villain in this situation.

  • sweet_lies

    well that explains what happened to her hairline.

    btw, i SWORE that was riri in the main pic! weird…

    on a serious note, what robyn is saying is right. she’s giving good advice and her explanaition for why women stay is accurate.

  • Elle

    Dr. Donald Dutton the author of the book, “The Batterer” said that it would take three years for people that are batterers to get their mindset to change. So even with intense counseling and group work, it takes a long time for a person to change.

    Does that mean that Rhianna will have three more years of ass-whipping before Chris gets his mind right and stop attacking her?

  • Speculations

    Ditto on she looks like Rhianna in that pic.

  • Elle

    If Robyn got any money from Mike Tyson, she EARNED every penny of it. Mike Tyson is extremely damaged and perverse.

    Robyn is telling the truth though.

    All kinds of men can be abusers. People are thinking that because Chris Brown is young, good-looking and rich, he CAN’T be a batterer, but he can and many men are.

    Hell, even our pastor was beating up his wife too.

  • Mia

    how can she compare C Breezy to that psycho Mike Tyson? Robin needs to just fall back…

  • The Twinz Mama

    Third on the fact that Robin looks like Robyn in that pic….

  • Elle

    C Breezy is Mike Tyson……..just give him a few years.

  • BrownPhillyYoung&Grown

    i had 1 “incident” with a guy…i ran soooooooo fast he probably forgot that i was ever there. RUN RUN RUN

    they always do it again

    he had a nerve to call me when he found out i was engaged…i fleed him so quick, he get’s no air time or conversation. i mean NONE. with his funny looking self. lol (sorry yall…i gotta flashback)

  • Awesome-0-3000

    Ms. Givens was stepping into those punches. Gold Digger Deluxe. Big swole chin, give me a break

  • BrownPhillyYoung&Grown

    when it comes to domestic violence

    RUN TELL THAT !!! (cops, your father, brothers, uncles, nephews, bad youngins in the neighborhood who likes you, lol)

  • Hope

    Robin didn’t walk away with Tyson’s money, that was Don King. And any idiot who defends Mike, a convicted rapist and known woman beater, is purely pathetic. Thank God for women like Givens who speak up and empower other women to leave their abusers. It is so sad that black women are so devalued by the black community that we enable men to continue to beat and kill our women by defending and excusing their bad behavior. I’m pretty sure that the life Givens is leading is much more productive than Tyson’s.

    @A mess indeed

    I’m assuming your comments were directed towards me amongst others and you are right but I have to say this. Those very same women that would so-called ‘miss the message’ that Robin was trying to get across should also take notes to not be a conniving opportunist like Robin was and then maybe they’ll pick a man that will not whoop their behinds. Maybe they will understand that having dollar signs in your eyes will blind you to what is in front of you. H3ll I can see Mike is crazy by just looking at him, but if you have alterior motives you might look past all that and walk into an f’d up situation all because of your desires to be ‘saved’. My main point is that yes, no woman deserves to get pounded on, but it’s hard to take advice from someone who already has their own negative ways that have nicely been put on blast!

  • Balls Deep

    That pic is priceless!!

  • KD

    I totally disagree with you saying she’s speaking to be relevant. Robin (as well as the whole rest of the panel who were on the show last night) are the best informed, have been there, and SHOULD be speaking out against this violence. Shame on you. 😦
