The pictures I suspected would happen have finally happened - see the highlighted part from my February post above.
As expected, the continued scrutiny on the arrangement has created a need to exhibit proof of the marriage being “real”. The more people speculate and try to question the validity, the longer this charade will have to continue. Kerry isn’t going to do anything until she is ready. This woman is very savvy and very much in control of her life, her plans and how this will all come together.
Once again, this only proves that NA (and his counterpart on Tony’s side, JM) are part of this arrangement and playing their roles for their own benefit (n NA’s case) or because of their long history and connection (in JM’s case with Tony the father of her children). All 4 of them know what is going on, what their part is in it and what the final steps will be.
Once again, common sense rules the day. I’ve said from Day 1 of my blog that this is a mutual arrangement. NA was asked by Kerry to play a role, he will get benefits out of it via connections in the industry, and when the time comes, it will be quietly dissolved. There doesn’t have to be some big dramatic story behind it, the common sense of the situation is dramatic enough as it is.
I purposely held back on the hype of the NAACP awards appearance - that was Tony and Kerry being themselves and natural - just as they were at last year’s ceremony. That is the reality of things and it is glorious as the pictures and their love for each other shone through. However, I’m not naive enough to think that the rest of this story will not also continue to play out. We had our glimpse, and now it’s back to the game. A game that will continue to until Kerry (and Tony) are ready for it to change.
So I keep smiling. I’ve been 100% consistent and logical with my assessment of the situation and it has been proven out again and again, to the chagrin of those who are against Tony and Kerry and even worse, by those who claim to support them. However, the scenario continues to play out as logic would expect.
Kerry is no victim, nor is she a hostage. She is an incredibly intelligent woman who is managing herself through a very difficult situation the only way she can in order to preserve her career and image. She’s not Angelina - for obvious reasons, she doesn’t have the luxury of being able to survive a scandal like this. So she and Tony had to do something drastic to get to a place where they can live their lives as they wish. And they will have that one day.
Sooner than might be evident right now.
Now I will pull out this oldie but goodie gif to surmise my feelings about Tony and Kerry….
PS - To those who continue to come after me because I dare have my own opinions, keep at it - it makes it even better that I can continue to hold my ground supporting Tony and Kerry as this plays out rationally and according to Tony and Kerry’s agenda. That is the only agenda I care about.
