Funny woman Roseanne recently posted a response to all of the hoopla regarding the Rihanna and Chris Brown situation on her blog and I couldn't agree with her more. Her comments reflect what I feel about this situation and made me think of something I read a while ago that shows that Rihanna might not really be the damsel in distress everyone is trying to make her out to be. A few years ago in an interview with Complex Magazine, Rihanna had the following to say:

“We talk all the time now, but we used to fight - and when I say fight, I don’t mean arguments; I mean physically fight. I hit the older one (brother) in the face with a glass bottle… My mom was pretty upset.”

Below is a little of what Roseanne had to say about this situation in her blog .

Rhianna is violent too and that is one of the reasons why she is back with chris brown. She thinks she has him right where she wants him now. His career is over, and he is working her to help him get it back. She thinks that since he needs her and has shown some contrition, that she can call the shots now. Violent people are control freaks, and she thinks she is in control right now. Violent couples also have passionate make up sex, and that keeps a lot of battered and beaten women hooked. Once she realizes that her fans and their parents are going to write her off completely and end her career as well as his if she stays with him, that might convince her not to do that. Her publicists and agents and lawyers and producers are all telling her not to risk she and brown's tandem endorsements (they don't care if she lives or dies, as long as they get their money). She is being played and used and isolated from her father.
