Unhappy? Don't Act Like Kirk Frost

Ask Demetria: The Love & Hip-Hop husband is an example of how not to act when your marriage is struggling.

(Continued from Page 1)

Whether this is a storyline for the show, and Kirk's antics off and on camera are all part of an elaborate script, or this behavior is a reflection of his true self, it's shameful. Kirk seems to believe that his public and very disrespectful treatment of his wife is "cute" or funny, but really he's the one who looks so stupid, and he doesn't even seem to know.

If a man is unhappy in his marriage, there's a much more graceful way to go his separate way than questioning his pregnant wife's fidelity -- for which he gives no cause -- or flaunting his anticipation of the demise of his marriage. At one point, Kirk respected Rasheeda enough to make her his wife. If he wants to move on, he should respect himself, and the children he shares with her, and go forward with decency or, better, public silence.
