I grew up watching 106 and Park. In fact I am in the generation when Free and AJ were the hosts and it was actually cool. It was a part of every teenagers daily regimen around the country. Unfortunately, time went on, I grew up and so did Free and AJ, so BET thought they needed some younger hipper hosts for the next set of high schoolers. In comes Rocsi and Terrance J. Now, Terrance is harmless, he is a cutie and kind of lame. However, from day one, individuals, many of them women were not feeling Rocsi. Many of the reasons I heard were she is not really Black she is Latino why is she hosting a BET show, she is funny looking, too skinny, I don’t like her voice and so on. Here we are years later and Rocsi is still disliked by many. However, now, everyone has access to blogs where they can properly express their dislike.
I never had a negative opinion about Rocsi. She seemed like a cool person and I ignored the rumors of her sleeping her way to her position because she seemed like a hard worker. She also hosted a daytime radio show in Chicago while simultaneously hosting 106th and Park in New York. That sounds like a gruesome work schedule. I respect that. Then the drama hit. Rumors started to spread about Rocsi not only being a hoe but also being a hoe that likes to sleep with married men. More specifically, Lisa Raye’s husband T&C Premier Michael Misick. Raye went on from show to show and she would discuss the affair with some respect to her ex and Rocsi but Rocsi never denied or confirmed it. Even when pictures emerged of her with Raye’s husband still no response from Rocsi. So, when I saw her interview posted on Honeymagazine I just knew that she would finally clear her name and dispel all of the negativity that has been coming her way. On the contrary, Rocsi chose to not speak about it.
“And although she won’t discuss what her manager refers to as the “LisaRaye situation,” she did touch on her relationship choices. “With men in my life, I’ve always made good choices. I would love to think that. It’s just really hard to trust people, and that’s just coming from not knowing everybody’s intentions,” Rocsi says.”
Really? So this is your opportunity to clear your name and stop some of the shade that is thrown your way from women and men alike and you do not want to talk about it? This is your opportunity to let people know you are not a home wrecker and indeed one of the hardest working chicks out there and not because you lay on your back. You do not want to talk about it. Which brings me to the this conclusion: Bitch you did it. Sure she has her right to her privacy but screw all of that! I know if I was in her position and my good name was being thrown around on blogs and by an accuser like cow shit I would be one of the first ones to nip it in the bud. I would shout it from the mountains above “I did not sleep with that lady’s husband!”. Instead she chooses not to discuss it and refer to it simply as the “Lisa Raye” situation. If the rumors are not true, I cannot understand how you or anyone guiding you would feel that ignoring the situation helps to plead your case. Especially when Lisa Raye is on radio shows discussing it regularly and there are pictures of you and the man circulating the internet.
Damn Rocsi. I go to so many of these blogs and see the comments and women are trashing you. I held out hope for you that this was all some rumor created by haters to cause more confusion in your life and career. However now, it is becoming more clear to me that perhaps this was never a rumor and Lisa Raye has reason to feel slighted by you. You broke up a home. That is just not the business. Perhaps the reason why you do not want to talk about it is because you feel ashamed of your own behavior and decisions. Am I judging? Perhaps. One thing is for certain. I am so damn disappointed with her.
