Brandy and her mother Sonja, have a heartfelt conversation about Brandy's painful past.
Brandy, the same way u r talking about this on the show is the same way u can talk about it in an interview. I understand that u feel like u shouldnt have to explain yourself to anybody but comin from A FAN of Brandy, I never knew the truth because i never heard anything about it from YOU! I dont want to think those things about u but when u jus dont talk about it, it only leaves me to believe what the tabloids say. Yes, its ur business but when ur in the public eye, its everybodies business because media makes it that way these days. Ur fans r the base for ur career n we would like to know the truth........ FROM YOU, mama. Much love hun.
brandy hold ur head up and move on. u dont need to discuss this again! your heart is in the right place!
I LOVE YOU BRANDY...AND ITS NOT YOUR FAULT...IT WAS AN ACCIDENT. JUST KEEP GOD FIRST AND FORGET THOSE EVIL ASS PEOPLE THAT CALL YOU NAME AND JUDGE YOU! THEY SOON WILL BE JUDGE THEMSELVES. YOU HAVE YOUR FAMILY, FRIENDS, FANS AND ESPECIALLY ME IF YOU EVER NEED A SHOULDER!!!!
...and ive been wonderin why bran's been lookin so different after all these yrs, i was thinkin ok she's only agin Ronique, calm down...but she said herself that red lines are developing near the corners of her pupils because of stress since the accident...ive been depressed and my heart goes out to her, im so sympathetic and feels as if she's takin the words right outta my mouth if i were to be blamed on for something this tragic...i just wish people will leave her alone about it, (media, fans, haters, etc...) its been 4 yrs and i'll defend her anytime because thats what tru fans do, smh, i Love Brandy
The family isn't even out for blood so where are you getting your information? What goes around comes around? Are you kidding me? She's got to live with that everyday!
I'm amazed about how some of you all are speculating on what she should talk about. She doesn't owe us anything but music. Everything else is a bonus. This one episode told me all I didn't need to know but found out anyway. If I was in an accident where somebody died, I wouldn't want to talk about it either. There were more cars involved. Let that family mourn alone.
At the end of the day, Brandy does not have to relive that situation. She DOES NOT owe the media a damn thang! all they are trying to do is be nosey and so that they could switch the story up umpteenth amount of times as they did before. Let her talk about the situation when she's ready to. And that may be five years from now or hell-maybe ten years from now. But let her be ready. Me, I wouldn;t want to hear about the situation. It is NOT her fault. And just because she's Brandy, like her mother said, she will get the blame for it all because she is an celebrity and she's not suppose to hav feelings???? GTFOH!
Hi Brandy, u r a strong black woman just like your mother, just remember God is Love and so r u and always keep your head strong and continue to give me the beautifil music that u gave me over the years. Ziva Gibson.
Brandy doesn't have to tell you anything if she isn't ready. so you and everybody else needs to deal. do you tell others about things that you went through when you're not ready? it's called a testimony and many of us have one, but we told it when we were ready. her story can help others i'm sure, but God has to work on her to make her stronger in dealing with it. just like he does with all people.
my goodness, what's wrong with you people. you are vipors!
I agree with Brandy for wanting to be low-key regarding the accident details. However, if she really wants people to know what really happen and stop the speculation, the best thing to do would be to open up about it. Ray-J, what can I say? You know you were not being a loyal friend by letting someone tell you that your friend was not good enough to be on your record. With friends like you, who needs enemies?
Melocanari I don't agree just because Brandy has a reality show doesn't mean that she has to make her whole life public. The show is about "A Family Business" not about Brandy's car accident. If someone doesn't wanna talk about a situation as intense as that then they don't have to talk about if there not ready. I don't understand why you said that Brandy was "immature" and "ignorant" just because she didn't feel the need to talk about this. You need to understand that ppl morn in different ways. When she is ready to talk about it I'm sure she will do it. It seems like your blaming her just as well as the media did. You said "has she even thought about how the family feels" why wouldn't she? Just because she didn't express it on the show doesn't mean she doesn't think about the family. Even if Brandy does get on tv and does this interview its not gonna help the women's family its gonna help Brandy. Brandy said in this episode that she doesn't feel that she's the victim she said that the women that lost her life is the victim. Brandy was not the only one involved in this accident but she's being cornered and blamed for the whole thing. So what I'm saying is that to a certain extent Brandy is a victim also. Brandy was not saying that she a victim of the accident she's saying she's a victim of the media and she is. They don't know what happen, you don't know what happen, I don't know what happen, the world doesn't know what happen the only ppl that know what happen are GOD, Brandy and the others that were involved. Its like your trying to tell Brandy what she should do. This is not your situation its hers. I support Brandy through whatever decision she's gonna make about this whole thing. As far as Brandy's album that don't matter to me because if your a "Ture Fan" your gonna support that person even at there lowest point especially if it was an accident. This WAS A ACCIDENT DO YOU GET IT AN ACCIDENT. THIS HAPPENS EVERYDAY TO "REGULAR PEOPLE". Brandy is a "Human Being" just like everyone else. Yes she's a celebrity but at the end of the day she still human. Your making it seem like Brandy is not owning up to what happen just because she doesn't want to talk about. You said "Strong souls speak on there actions" well Brandy isn't strong enough right now to talk about it. Did you not hear Brandy say "Its hard for me to talk about it in front of my family and friends". If its hard to talk about it in front of the ppl closest to her then how hard do you think its gonna be to talk about in front of the whole world? I'm not ready for Brandy to talk about it until Brandy is ready to talk about it if she never talks about then I'm not gonna fault her for that. Just because Brandy is grown doesn't mean that this situation is easy to deal with. You said "Please do not let us hear ur â€˜sympathy and compassion for the victim and the tragic storyâ€™ when u have a new product to sell" shame on you if you think that Brandy would do that. Since you think that you know everything or your telling Brandy what she should do How would you deal with this situation? Would you talk about it if you wasn't ready? Your making it seem like since Brandy doesn't want to talk about this it somehow means that Brandy is not owning up to what has happen. Realize this Brandy is not asking for sympathy for her involvement in the accident she wants ppl to understand that it wasn't all her fault being umm she wasn't the only one involved but ppl are continuously blaming just her. Seems like you said all of these things based on how your friends or family felt about it seem like they had a big influence on the way you commented.
kimba Huh? When did Brandy think that she was above it all? Please tell me because I would really like to know.
Sorry. She had said after the "accident" that she wasn't paying attention. Your driving in a car on the highway....PAY ATTENTION!! What if the tables turned and someone wasn't paying attention and Brandy or RJ was killed, they would be out for blood.
Brandy thinks she's above it all, but as the saying goes,,,,,what goes around comes around.
Brandy I feel your pain, we all have some things in our charted life we dont understand. I personally have been involved in several car accidents, whereas I was the victum several times. Just, not tragic! My heart goes out to the family and you for their lost. One thing for sure, we dont wake up and plan a day like that!! I have read several articles on the accident, and something you come to learn, what point death occured was unknown. Don't take the sole responsibility, and say why her and not me. That question doesn't belong to you. Accept what has happened, pray for her family and other victums like you both. Practice safer driving habits, and keep life moving. People do forget and forgive, in time her family will accept what has happened and move forward also. You are Brandy/ Bran Nu- we still love you and got your back girl!! Teddybear giver in Florida.
Brandy, your personality matches your fatherâ€™s sensitivity and understanding. You are also a very bright lady. However, I think that it is time you borrow a little aggressiveness from your motherâ€™s character and let the world know that you are the solid star of the Family Business.
Your aka may be Bran Nu, but honey you are not brand new.
You should have a wall in your office showcasing your past successes: Cinderella, Cinderella w/Fairy Godmother (legendary Whitney Houston), Cast of Moesha, Cast of Thea, and Artists of the I Wanna Be Down (Remix). I know there is a career balance to keeping up with your legacy and trying to move forward with something new. But your fans do not want to forget that you were the first black Cinderella â€“ Cinderella with braids. You made micro braids fashionable on Moesha and every little girl wanted to look like you. Moesha also provided the spinoff of The Parkers, which garnered MoNique. We donâ€™t need to talk about the impact of the I Wanna Be Down Remix; MC Lyte, Yo Yo and Queen Latifah. Come on now. Itâ€™s time that you get the respect you that you deserve. Throw up a poster or sumthing, girl.
Brandy's mom is so pretty! I love her and this family!
just because Brand a celebrity, she don't have to tell you a damn thing. if she is not ready to give her testimony, she doesn't have to give it. Brandy girl keep ya head up. people need to learn to be merciful.
you are not wrong marlon star, but someone's life has been lost. brandy is in the public eye, regardless of whether she wishes to share things or not. when u are requesting money from souls u av neva met to buy ur product and support ur rather large pockets, u may wan hold some compassion and sympathy for those u av a hand in hurting. u dont think so, bredren?
no disrespect to u brandy star...i can def understand that u dont feel ready to share this story with anyone, and ur not ready, ok. I have to wonder have u listened to urself speak when u say certain things, that can be so offensive? u will be able to speak on this tragedy any time u feel good a ready to share and wit some of the biggest names in the business to help u get ur story out to the people. Let mi ask u though, have u thought of the family who will never really heal from this same tragedy that u feel a victim of urself? I am almost sure that when ur new album comes to the shelves, you will be wishing, hoping and praying that ur fans will support u again and maybe gain some new fans, right? Well, why would u request from us the public to place our hands in our pockets to support u, but u do not feel it necessary to maybe even honor the family by simply acknowledging their pain publicly? I feel, u do not need to explain what happened, but speak on how u feel about it and how u feel about the family. Whether u wish to admit this or not, u r a public figure and people do look to ur words. So I mean come on, starâ€¦a life was lost, and for those who donâ€™t know the story, feel u are responsible for it. Although there are many sides to a story, the people will only believe what they are told and what they see. Tonight, when u said u â€˜donâ€™t want to talk about itâ€™ and â€˜why should u talk about itâ€™, u didnâ€™t gain sympathy, starâ€¦u gain a whole lot a nasty vibes from many. Ur vibe was cold and uncaring to the family, but ur tears were very clear for u and ur position in the messy matter.
I love ur voice, personally. But I am sorry, star, the way u r portrayed on air, is arrogant and very immature. U are grown nowâ€¦no more â€˜I wanna be downâ€™â€¦time fi step up ur game as a grown up. Strong souls speak on their actions and what they have learned from them. Enlightened souls share the sufferings of those they contributed pain to and help them up from their tough times. Ur support is waiting for u to become that person we know u can be. Sistren, please return the compassion and care that ur supporters miss...or at least we had the illusion it was there. I see u recording, star. Please do not let us hear ur â€˜sympathy and compassion for the victim and the tragic storyâ€™ when u have a new product to sell. Now that is truly distasteful, u gotta be better than that. Just a perception from a soul who sat in a room full of people watchin your show, and the reaction was just painful to hear. It made mi afi write to u tonite. Bless star.
I agree about its her life but someone did lose their life, I just look at it as what if it was one of my family members that was going through this.
