Brandy Calls Ryan Press a Gift


Brandy describes her engagement to Ryan Press as very spontaneous and says Ryan is truly a gift...

From People
"It was a spontaneous thing for my fiancé," she said before ringing in the New Year at LAVO Las Vegas "He just felt it."
"He worked really hard on the ring. I'm not a big diamond girl, but I really love this diamond he did," she said. "It just represents how he feels about me, and I'm really blessed to have someone like him in my life. He's truly a gift."

Brandy is so basic and blah. How was this engagement "spontaneous" when she begged him to marry her? Has-been, Avatar-looking ass bitch.

So basic and blah chicks aren’t worthy of love and marriage? Only exotic chicks should have husbands?

he looks like a very confident, secure man, a secure man doesn't doubt his relationship because of what other people say or his boys, friends, a secure man lives according to his beliefs and has a mind of his own, therefore this relationship might last for long time. and they both look like they enjoy each other's company.

straight hair, thin lips, and a thin ass nose so everyone can see your boogers does not make you exotic.

and ignore the first comment troll, don't feed them. let'em starve!

10:29, By you even mentioning Nicole's comment just proves that you didn't ignore her. Dumb ass.

Gasp!

Wow. I'm amazed that the Black women here have not declared Ryan "gay" or on the "down low". You know how a lot of Black women denounce their men and claim them to be gay if they're not tatted up and thugged out.

Awe, I'm so happy for her. How can someone be mad at an engagement? You have to be miserable and bitter to be mad at somone else's joy, must suck to be you.

Brandy will NEVER be Sane because She’s Super Co-Dependant, STILL has an Eating Disorder,
Hooked on Prescription Pills and Murdered Someone

The bitter snide remarks in here are coming from unwed, single baby mamas. I get it!

Congrats Bran. There are no negative comments in here though. Simple-minded bitches on RWS love to keep up drama. Why aren't you hoes at work anyway? But I bet you got a broke ass nigga laid up in ya crib with ya snot-nosed kids that aren't even his.

@RnB

Please provide evidence of a current "eating disorder", and her addiction to prescription pills. I totally missed this tea. Also, in case you've been living under a rock, she was found not guilty of vehicle manslaughter, so again, I ask where are you getting these alleged theories?

Brandy is gonna rack in another 200+ comments simply because she is engaged to be married. Smh.

@AnRnBThug,

You speak of Brandy being "co-dependent". You may be on to something. I remember the fake marriage with Robert Smith, the huge back tattoo she got of another guy she was dating and now this engagement that she basically asked for. Maybe she just wants to be in love? That's considerable.

Anonymous said...

So now Brandy has stans? LMFAO. Where was all of this support when her album dropped? Phony hoes.

Lovely said...

@ 10:31 what you talm bout homie? most of the tatted nigs are GAY!


and a lot of Black women do NOT denounce (lol @ the word choice) "their" men. Black women stay baby'n knee gros and going to war for em!

10:47, That's unfortunate babe, because Black men, most of them, do not go to bat for their women. They call you every "bitch" and "ho" in their rap songs and they further degrade you in their music videos.

You should really look her up before you ASSume. Brandy been having stans. They are some of the most loyal, not crazy but loyal. Take a look at her twitter and see her retweets from fans. They are the ones who bought the album. Just because she didn't debut with pop star numbers like Taylor Swift and Rihanna doesn't mean she has no fans or isn't loved.. Btw the week her album released some of your favorite singers were tweeting her and praising her unmatched vocal talents.

Women in general (not just black women) come in many shapes, sizes and forms. But when a Black women is natural curvy with a little extra weight, she is disgusting fat, but when a Black women is naturally thin put could add a few pounds then she has an eating disorder. I would love for rnb to give us your ideal of how all Black women figures and weight should be.

Anonymous said...

@11:02
If she was a "has-been" she wouldn't be appearing on this and many other blogs weekly you fool. Has-beens don't released critically acclaimed albums, they just fade away in the dark and are not seen nor heard. I think you need to reassess your definition of a has been and stop saying shit just to sound cool and fall in line with the rest of the group think displayed on this site.

Anonymous said...

11:10, Most Black women who are "curvy" aren't in shape though. Too many Black women think that they're "thick" when in all actuality, they're borderline fat. I hear most Black women bragging on their "fat asses" and "thighs", but they never brag about working out or toning.

Anonymous said...

11:15, Brandy is a HAS-BEEN. You mad? LMFAO.

Brandy admitted to having eating issues as a teenager.....don't know if that applies today. As far as this "spontaneous" engagement.....GIRL BYE.

Anonymous said...

So Brandi has had 3 high profile relationships in a decade and that makes her co-dependent? So if a person is married or in a seriously relationship in their 20’s; it does workout but they find love and get married 10 years later that makes them co-dependent. But seriously, some people enjoy companionship of another person but are content with staying single. But here’s a well keep secret……Some married people are actually happy and are madly in love with each other. Life doesn’t stop at 30. So if you are fortunate to live a long life you might want a happy relationship well past your 20’s and 30’s.

@11:16, I can agree with you. My only point is that if you are Black women that is either 20lbs overweight or 10lbs underweight you get racked over the coals for not being a perfect form? I’m just curious to know what is considered perfect weight and form for Black women. And what is perfect form for Black men. I see just as many disgustingly fat Black men that look like they are 50 weeks pregnant and have juicier booty’s that and most women but they are considered Fly, why the double standard?

RnBDiva is clearly gay. He's way too critical of black women, it's a facade for his fear of vagina. I would like to see a picture if him and he had better look like Laz Alonso they way he goes in on the physical appearance of black women, he also had better have abs of steel and a body like Mechad Brooks the way he wants women to be in the gym 24/7, nigga what you looking like?

Anonymous said...

11:48, Just because a man is "critical" of Black women doesn't mean he's gay. How ignorant and unintelligent are you? Maybe his preference is Latino women or Asian women. Black women think that Black men are exclusively and ONLY in favor of them and that's not true. Not every Black man wants a Black woman, DAMN.

Thank you! You made perfect sense. You might have to type in Ebonics and use a couple of profane words for the illiterate and the challenged next time. Some of these hood readers don't understand unless you insert a couple of F you's and the like.

Anonymous said...

@11:37 & 11:42, by comment was based on the comments from Rnb @ 10:36 and Ms. Lee at 10:44. They both stated that they thought that Brandy was co-dependent because she has had about 3 high profile relationships in the last decade. Don’t get the logic that if you were married or have a serious relationship in your 20’s and now 10 years later you found love again that you are co-dependent. People break up and divorce every day. Just because this happen in your 20’s doesn’t mean that you’re not worthy of love later in life.

Are you his mouth peace? Most black men into Asians are bi. Asians, like cave women, I mean white women sexual deviants and they turn their men out. Latinos have the most odd shapes, love handles, butt on backs and their bodies rapidly deteriorate after 30 so come again, if he truly is critical of body types Latinos should be the main ones he picks apart. I never said anything about black women being exclusively reserved for black men, don't put words in my mouth.

Anonymous said...

12:03, So you've surveyed EVERY Black man that is "into Asians"? And now White women are "cave women"? And Latinas have "odd body shapes"? I think it's funny that you've just stereotyped these women, but as soon Nicole or someone else talks about Black women, you're up in arms and trying to get Snitch to ban them. This is why I don't take majority of Black women seriously because 1. Most are hypocrites and 2. Most are just too hard to deal with. And so what if you didn't say that Black women aren't reserved exclusively for Black men. You're ACTING and TYPING like they are by saying that a Black man who's critical of Black women are gay. I see why some Black men are critical of Black women like you; you're masculine and combative. Peace.

Listen, I have a lot of life experience. I also watched her realty show and I pay attention to details.
First, She ADMITTED to having bulimia in the past. It’s VERY hard to overcome that, especially when you still rail thin. If you did
overcome it you would hold at least a little weight. Brandy is skeleton thin.
Second, She killed a Woman with Her car. Accident or not that will affect anyone TREMENDOUSLY. That Woman Had kids & a family, she’s gone now…you did it. Nightmares begin, you have trouble sleeping, you need help. Doctors get involved, drugs get prescribed. You NEED those drugs now.
Third, Look at Her eyes, She looks like she has Jaundice. No one else in Her family has those yellow eyes so it don’t run in the family, She’s unhealthy (bulimic….maybe)
Forth, Her co-dependency is clear, She has lied, hid, and chased men…A LOT There’s no question that she’s insecure.

You a damn lie. Lmao happily married women don't come on blogs and make negative remarks about other women who are excited about thier engagement. If you were truly happy with your "marriage" you would be happy and congratulating others.

Riddle me this, if you are not attracted to Black women then why do you even bother with them? If I’m not attracted to say Asian men would it make sense for me to go on Asian Entertainment blog and tell all the Asians over there that they are unattractive. Why are you even on a Brandy page on this blog? Btw, Black women can be attracted any man they want to be attracted including Black men. What gives you the right to tell Black women who they can like?
As far as Black women think that Black men are exclusive to only them, well news flash Black women already know this. They know that the majority of Black men hate them except for when they need a place to live after they’re released from jail or fired from they’re job and they need a rent free place to stay. If a Black women ain’t being used as a Mule them she’s of no value.

Anonymous said...

1:26, To me, Brandy is needy, thirsty even. Her track record with men isn't stellar. Also, why would I congratulate a pressed and forced engagement? If she weren't so vocal and obsessed with getting a ring, maybe my comments would be different. Furthermore, you're ignorant and again, your comments rarely make sense. What does the objective of my comment and my marriage have to do with anything? All married people don't have to congratulate engaged couples. The hell? Married people know that marriage is a lot of works. It's not all diamonds, sparkles and smiles. Get the fuck out of here and get you a man and a life. You need not respond back to me. Goodbye.

Well I would love to hear your armchair psychology on Kim K. Let’s see, she has dated at last 10+ men in the last decade, has had 2 failed marriages and is currently pregnant with one man’s child while still being married to another man, all under the tender age of 32. (Brandy is same age btw,)All this for the sake of competing for the love of her life Reggie Bush. I was going to throw in sex tape but that has been down to death.

THIS IS OUR FUTURE. Very Very SAD!!!

Idiocracy is a 2006 American film, a satirical science fiction comedy, directed by Mike Judge and starring Luke Wilson, Maya Rudolph, Dax Shepard, and Terry Crews. The film tells the story of two ordinary people who take part in a top-secret military hibernation experiment, only to awaken 500 years in the future in a dystopian society full of extremely dumb people. Advertising, commercialism, and cultural anti-intellectualism have run rampant and dysgenic pressure has resulted in a uniformly stupid society devoid of intellectual curiosity, social responsibility, and coherent notions of justice and human rights

1:49, We're talking about Brandy, not Kim, but I see how you weaved Kim into the equation to repel attention away from Brandy. Brandy will be 34; therefore, her and Kim are not the same age.

Anonymous said...

@2:35, you are right, I made the comparison because I'm curious. Black men love to tare Black women down who have made a few mistakes or have had adversity in their life, but when a non-Black woman who is 10 times worsts, the Black man will always excuse her. Why don't Black men give Black women the benefit of the doubt like they do other women who are worst?

My Mistake about the age difference, when I googled Brandy’s age it gave 33. Considering Brandy is 34 the 2 yr. difference in age doesn’t improve the stats.

Kim's got middle child syndrome. Can't live up to the orders legacies and can't set a good example for the younger, so she tries to find her own self thus fucking up lives in the process. She makes really poor choices and only chooses to benefit herself.

The first comment sums it all up for me. How "spontaneous" could it have really been if she kept harassing the man in the press? She might as well have gone to the rooftop and said "GET ME MY RING!" GTFOHWTB!

Ms. Lee said...

3:18, I'm not the person your comment/reply is directed to, but I'm just going to keep it real with you. The Black community has regressed, is not unified and is still suffering from the affects of slavery. Some reports state that the whole "Jim Crow" letter was fake, but the basis of what it reads still holds true for many Black Americans. I have no idea who dropped the ball or even when that ball was dropped, but I feel as though rap music has contributed to the war that Black men have against Black women. Listen to the lyrical content and imagery of a lot of their music. We're "bitches" and "hos". Come on. What man calls his Queen a "bitch" or a "ho" for the entire world to see, hear, rap and dance along to? I feel like a lot of Black men excuse and save non-Black women because they feel as though having a non-Black woman will propel them into some astronomical status in White America.

everybody's favorite topic is BLACK WOMEN, BLACK PEOPLE, BLACK MEN, BLACK KIDS the world can't stop talking about us, including tragic mulattos who have lost their identity, racist trolls, and gay black men, BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL

congrats Brandy, you may or may not have issues, you may or may not have begged your man for a ring, but at the end of the day, you are creating the life you want, you are creating your happiness, so congrats!

WHITE MEN AREN'T EXCLUSIVE TO WHITE WOMEN.

so really kill the noise, if you wanna date snow flakes, fine, but preaching about it on black blogs gets a big YAWN. go to TMZ.COM and get your snow flakeness on, it's really that simple.

A baby is a gift, not a man, who can and will hurt you. Stop being so love struck Brandy. It's almost as if you can't believe he actually wants to be with you. What are you trying to prove?

I find that black and latina women behave this way when they get engaged. It's like they are saying "hey I moved up in rank, I'm better than the rest of you". "Look at me and my new status". Whatever.

Anonymous said...

@ 10:11 AM 10:01 AM Is not reaching. Nicole didn't come right out and say it, but it was certainly implied.
The first sentence reads: 'Brandy is so basic and blah.'
The third sentence reads: '... Avatar-looking ass bitch.' I left out Has-been on purpose.
It's very clear in sentence 1&3 Nicole doesn't find Brandy very attractive and she can't understand or is shocked that a good looking brotha (He's not ugly IMO) is marrying her. So, 10:01 is correct in her interpretation. If Nicole would have left out sentences 1 & 2, the post would only focus on how Brandy begged this guy to marry her.

The majority of the comments on any given topic turn into a black woman bash, and retaliation to that.

Was anyone THERE to hear her BEG this man for marriage?! She does NOT have to lower herself like that! This is precisely WHY "SOME" of our people get NO where, because we can't seem to SUPPORT POSITIVE unions & things we as a people NEED, to represent POSITIVITY & BALANCE! People don't seem to be HAPPY unless someone is HATIN'! Just condemning the union B4 she can walk down the aisle! It's a SPECIAL kind of SAD, that DYSFUNCTION in OUR community is what people choose to celebrate, & what makes things POP for folks! A DAMN SHAME indeed!

Anonymous said...

People are mad at Brandy because she is considered an average to ugly Black chick not worthy of love. Her only mistake by going in a public forum and professing her love to this man and letting people know that she wants to be married to him. Did it even occur to people that maybe she made those comments because this man is loving, kind and good to her. That maybe he treats her daughter well. That maybe he is kind and respectful of her family. Sometimes when people are REALLY HAPPY things just slip out. I really don’t know anything about this guy, but it is nice to know that she didn’t fall in love with a tired thug, ex-con, wanna be rapper with 3 baby mamma’s trying to make a come up. People just hate the fact they can’t find anything negative about the guy. It looks like she found a nice, decent, and easy on the eyes GENTLEMAN. I say good for her. Congrats to Brandy and also my personal muse Mellody Hobson. Smart girls ROCK, even the Brown ones. LOL
