Since the extended Ray Rice video hit the web, everyone's got an opinion on the NFL player's violent fight with his then-fiancée Janay and her decision to marry him anyway. Only the couple knows what truly goes on in their relationship, but some have come to Janay's defense. During a recent visit to Good Day LA, Mo'Nique took an unpopular position in the Rice situation.
"A lot of people are saying get rid of him, it was horrible what he did and it was. It was tragic for us to see that happen to that young woman… there's no excuse for that. On the other side of it, there's the beauty in it because you see this woman saying I'm going to stand by my husband," she said.
"The world saw him at his worst moment…I've been there to have my worst moments. There was a time I wanted to say domestic violence. There was a time I did say it. But the truth was we would just fight. And if I would lose, now I'm gonna call the police it's domestic violence. But if I won, we just had a fight."
Meanwhile, Evelyn Lozada is a name that has been mentioned throughout this situation, but in her case, she decided to divorce husband Chad Ochocinco after a much-publicized head-butting incident.
"I feel part of what happened was my karma for acting a fool! Thank God for life lessons & being able to grow," she tweeted in response to someone giving her props for walking away.
"God made me sit my butt down & I did. Took my time working on me. I have no regrets! I'm thankful for the lessons."
She's since moved on to becoming a new mommy with fiancé Carl Crawford and has been doing some major progress in cleaning up her Basketball Wives ratchet ways.
