A couple of weeks ago Black women were abuzz when their latest hero Olivia Pope told the White President “If you want me earn me!”
It became the catch phrase among sistas at the water cooler on those high-paying office jobs of theirs.
Sorry, only a SIMP would fall for that game. Then again, the President in this show is a Grade-A SIMP pussy begging a mistress demanding she come to see him.
Seriously, there’s nothing for him to earn. Olivia Pope (aka Sally Hemmings 2.0) has no leverage in the relationship. How can a man earn something when all Olivia Pope brought to the table was sex? And how can a man earn something when he already gotten what he wanted from her?
Clearly Shondra Rhimes and her merry band of writers know nothing about Real Men or Real manhood, or how males who are involved in affairs conduct themselves. When a woman is a side piece, the man holds all the cards. He has the leverage. He has the power. Everything is on his terms.
And the general rule for side pieces is that the relationship can end at any time for any reason.
Basically Olivia Pope played herself.
If I had written that scene The White President would have laid down the pimp hand after she said “If you want me, earn me!” Then he would have looked down at her contemptuously and told her:
“Earn you? Bitch, fuck you!” and gestured for Secret Service to toss her ass out to the curb like yesterday’s garbage.
Because when you act like a hoe, you usually get treated like one. And a side piece is nothing more than a hoe who is just selling the pussy to one customer on an exclusive basis.
Usually when side pieces start making demands of the men they’re having affairs with that’s when they get dropped. Again, side pieces don’t control the terms of the relationship.
Only a SIMP allows a side chick to gain control over the relationship and dictate the terms of it. Remember, a side piece is not a wife. She has no ring and no papers on a man. She was the one offering up exclusive pussy in exchange for money, gifts and trinkets. She can’t ask for more from a man when all she’s doing is selling pussy at bargain basement prices. It’s not his fault she sold herself short and settled for an affair instead of looking for a marriage.
Bascially, the President in this show is a SIMP. Getting emotional over a side piece? Come on, that’s Bitch-Made™ behavior. Most dudes charge a side piece to the game and keep it moving. Especially guys with money and power. They understand that hoes come a dime a dozen, and to never love a hoe because all a hoe will stab you in the back. Street rules 101.
But on this show I guess he’ll be putting on a cape and the Woody Woodpecker galoshes and trying to Earn Olvia’s heart next season. Man, TV has gone downhill from the days of Pete Malloy and Jim Reed on Adam-12, Steve Austin, the Six Million Dollar Man, or James Evans on Good Times. Now those were Real Men.
Seriously, Sistas you need to stop watching stupid shows like this. Because they don’t match the realities of life. Any woman who tries to play the Olivia Pope game will be selling themselves short. As they say on the street, side pieces come and go. Why should a man buy a cow if he’s getting the milk for free?
Don’t be a dope. Understand there is no hope in Olivia Pope.
