Not that the incident should go unmentioned, Keeno2, but there is a difference between being abused and provoking someone's ire, and we must take into consideration a few facts:
a) We, the public, are getting information from opposing camps. Being that I wasn't there myself, I can only speak for what I hear and see. I see bruises, but I have also heard that Mrs. Misick (and entourage?) got physical with Mr. Misick (and entourage?). I can't say what happened or who started the altercation, and in this type of situation, you can't really depend on the word of the opposing parties, because they aren't going to be impartial because they have images to uphold, being celebrities, as well as they both are trying to come out clean on the other side of this divorce.
b)These are indeed celebrities. We know all too well what happens when a celebrity is accused of some nefarious deed, especially when the accusation is being wielded by another celebrity. The incident becomes salacious, and opinions are tainted. Given that fact, one can only hope that the local authorities and whomever is handling the divorce proceedings can do so as impartially as possible, and not aggravate the situation further by rousing the rabble.
c) This is not the average Drunk Joe slinging Poor Suzy halfway across the living room every ***. We don't know if this is the first time or not. If it is, there is a more tactful way to handle this already incindiary situation, while sending the message that this is unacceptable, regardless of who or how many times.
Given the couple's status, and how things have played out thus far, it would make sense on her part, in regards to the divorce proceedings, to try and come out of this as not seeking immediate attention. What I mean is, handle this abuse situation privately, if it needs to be brought up in the divorce, so be it, but not before, and not directly to the public media. I know that's hard to do, given that they are indeed famous, but it has been done.
The average abuse victim, who may well encounter truculent and biased law enforcement officials, may become (more) dispaired at their situation because they don't have the support, resources or status to garner such attention until their situation becomes well past 'dire'. Sad but true.
By making a big splash about this incident, Mrs. Misick is inadvertantly enforcing the negative notion that in order to get out of an abusive situation, status helps. Trust me when I say that the "shame" of catching a daily beatdown quickly ebbs to be replaced by fear and trepidation, bred to rise by isolation in most cases, which is how the abuser gets away with it, as you pointed out, without actually killing the person.
I've said all that to say that in THIS PARTICULAR SITUATION, as this is an article about LisaRaye and Michael Misick, and didn't directly mention the 45% of the American population who endure domestic abuse on a regular basis that we don'e see spashed on webistes and rolling up in Rolls Royces until their funerals, given the limited and biased information we are getting, it's wise for both parties to either air *** and socks or respectfully decline the spotlight until this entire situation is completely settled.
Hope that response was mature and informed enough.
