Leaked Video Shows NFL Star Ray Rice Punching Wife in Elevator A MonthBefore Wedding

Above is not the picture of the victim.

Leaked footage of Baltimore Ravens football player, Ray Rice punching his wife in an elevator, has been posted online.

In the video, Rice is shown punching Janay Palmer, his then fiancee, in the face twice, knocking her out. He then drags her unconscious body out of the elevator.

The incident took place in an elevator at Revel Hotel in Atlantic City on February 15th this year, The Independent reports.

As a result of the incident, the National Football League (NFL) declared a two-match ban for Rice for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy.

The ban was announced on July 24th.

According to reports, NFL authorities saw an earlier abridged version of the video months ago, which did not show the full extent of the violence displayed in the currently leaked full-length video.

With the release of this new video, many have condemned the NFL, stating that a more severe punishment should have been given to him.

According to reports, Rice and Palmer got married just one month after the assault.

A short clip of the video published on TMZ can be seen below.


What baffles me is that she still went ahead to marry him one month later. 
Please who can help me understand why people in physically abusive relationships find it so hard to walk away...


  1. She probably likes the battery, the money and the money. Most of these women endure this shit cos of money.

    After a while, you hear of divorce.

    So sad. Clare

    So sad. Clare

  3. Tis kind of love intoxicates like X0,lol
    Well guess she stayed for some other reasons. I. Couldnt deal a slaap, so i wont dare punches

  4. I think they are always cowed into submission. That requires fear..and blind love. Due to that, they chose to stay. Whatever rocks their boat.

  5. Like the story I shared two days ago, no one understood why she stayed despite all the beatings. We thought maybe it was the gifts she gets because she didn't try to leave at all then.

  6. I don't have a comment on this... It struck a nerve so i'll just pass.

  7. Please, we need help. A colleague has just left an abusive and stormy marriage. She had to relocate to Lag and I've been trying to get her a job here but everyone is making empty promises. This lady has a beautiful daughter who clocked one two months back. She's been doing the hand to mouth living and has nothing to fall back on. She's taking care of her daughter alone. She read mass communication. If you have a job to offer her, please mail me on I can't bear to see her suffer any long. Please help. Thanks.

    1. Where's her family? List reputable recruitment agencies and let her walk in to speak with consultants. Be wary though, some men will want sex first. Visit job sites and register. She shouldn't be desperate. That may leave her open to exploitation.

  8. There were other attractions, the importance of which outweighs the battery (I think).


  9. Thelma, in Nigeria, some women stay in abusive marriages, because of;
    Religious belief
    What would people say

  10. The way he appologised is prolly one of the reasons why she stayed. If he says "I love u" with the same sincerity as "I'm so sorry baby", I wldnt blame her...

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…


Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…


I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Closed Chapter...

Hello everyone, yesterday a friend said to me, Thelma I love your blog, I've told so many people about your blog, I think you're a very good writer but I feel there's something you're not doing right"

This friend was the first person who won our beauty of the day contest back then in 2014. Then we had met just once through a mutual friend. I mentioned the blog to her and she became an instant reader. I wouldn't have exactly called her a friend then but yesterday as we sat down waiting for our Uber to come get us from Wal-Mart, she's definitely my friend and I knew she was coming from a good place when she said she had much higher expectations of my blog.

Me too.

But you see, in the last year or so, maybe even longer than that, I haven't felt much joy in blogging. It began to feel more and more of a laborious chore, one which I hardly reaped any fruits from.

I really love writing, I love sharing my life and my experiences with others and I've enjoy…
