Everyone’s favorite #WokeBae, Jesse Williams, is allegedly divorcing his wife, Aryn Drake-Lee.
I’ve decided I want to bow out. It was fun while it lasted. However, after careful review, I’ve concluded that The Woke Olympics just isn’t for me. I can’t compete.

You probably know Jesse Williams as one of the guys on one of those Shonda Rhimes shows that airs before another Shonda Rhimes show. Or perhaps as the racially ambiguous guy who really, really, really, really digs Ciroc.
Judging from the dozens of thirsty Bougie Black Girls on my Facebook page, Twitter feed, and GChat list, within the last week or so Jesse Williams — best known for playing one of the doctors on that Shonda Rhimes show that airs before Scandal — has cemented himself as 2014's holder of the Bougie Black Girl Celebrity…
