I Tried To Stay Out Of It (Part 4)


An Open Letter To Vivica Fox


Dear Aunt Viv (as the gossip blogs call you):

Don't get the wrong idea....I have absolutely nothing against you. I think it's very brave that you go out and do your thing, from producing your myriad of straight to DVD movies, to Quentin Tarantino, to "Dancing With The Stars", to "Curb Your Enthusiasm", to dancing practically nekkid at some bootleg award show behind...ummm...I think it was Mobb Deep, to walking every red carpet in the United States, to celebrity "Family Feud"---you are there---with a beautiful, radiant smile on your face. I admire you for that.

But lately things have been going on that are quite alarming. I shouldn't say lately, cause it kinda started with the rumor that you climbed 50 Pennies home estate wall in Connecticut, was caught, then arrested....all while he wasn't even there and out of town. I let that one go cause I know people can be unkind and like to start rumors.

But then you started showing up around town with the unflattering balding hairlines at places like The Ivy for crissakes, the papparazzi haven of the new world. Couldn't you at least go to a drive-thru if you are hungry, or at least wear a hat?

The "Dancing With The Stars" thing was very thin ice, but I let that one go too, cause you seem very nice and were very gung-ho about it.

But this latest debacle with the sex tape thing? Uhh, not good.

I don't believe for a second that you purposely put that out to get publicity as some suggest...I really don't think you're that starved for attention (at least I hope not). And I really don't know if it's even you, it's hard to tell. And if it is you, everyone has been in a compromising situation or two.

But that's kinda my point---it's time for the public shenanigans to stop, Viv. Hire a driver so you don't go through the public humilation of a DUI. Have your girls (or even your gay boys, I know you know Norwood) around you to keep you from going home with random strangers and low budget 20-somethings. Maybe get a new agent or manager to help make better choices that will make people respect you as an actress and Black Queen. Maybe just start working behind the camera and building a stable empire like Salma Hayak, and only act once in a blue moon. I'm just sayin'.

When women get to a "certain age", it is time to not be placed in a position of public fodder and speculation. It's undignified. If that's how you want to roll, that's great, I understand, but keep it behind closed doors, kay? You might want to give Jack Nicholson a call and get a few tips.

Oh, and the Forever 21 sweatsuits? Let those go too.


I say this with love,


Invisible Woman

And the Congregation said "Amen." It's sad to see Viv go out like this.

I've always loved her upbeat and accessible attitude. It's as if when she turned 40, she went into some kind of downward spiral.

It does need to stop. People have just lost of all self respect and dignity.

AJ said...

It's sad to see folks self-destruct in the public eye. Hopefully some of those in her circle will help her to get it together sooner rather than later. And I so hope that is NOT her in the video.

longlocks said...

She needs some sort of an intervention.

Camille said...

LOL! I love this. Glad you posted it. Viv needs help. Seriously.

MsMarvalus said...

I think 15 cents did something to her that seriously f***ed her up...she ain't been right since...

chocl8t said...

She's making other 40+ black women look really baaaad. Viv, get yo s**t together...

Regina said...

My how the mighty have fallen. Someone better get this chick some help and fast before she loses it all together. I also agree that 50 was the beginning of her downward spiral. Good Lord what did he do to her?!? She has lost her everloving mind!

Bohemian Hippie Chick said...

An intervention is definitely in order. As far as that hairline goes, headwraps are always a nice accessory.

Jancie said...

The sex tape isn't her, it Adina Jewel. The whole think has something to do with Sandra rose.

Batemen E said...

(commenting on the letter)...I second that motion

theblackactor.com said...

Ah, Viv...

Whahappen ma? Whahappen?

Her antics notwithstanding, I think she lost major credibility with the alleged work done. People don't take her seriously. I haven't followed her work lately but wonder if she will ever really be able to have a closeup.

Vivica Fox looks very different now. Everyone can see it and it is a topic of conversation...

like it is now...

rather than a conversation about her riveting portrayal of, er Jane Doe, in such and such movie.

I think she has a long hill climb up to be taken seriously. It's possible, but only by her work -- and not by her offscreeen activities.

I could be wrong.

theblackactor.com said...

long hill climb up?!

I mean long climb up hill.

LMAO at me.

Urban Thought said...

LOL... If only she would read this post. Not that she would pay much attention.

I've never understood celebs and DUI's. You can pay someone to drive for you or take a cab, you can afford it.

Invisible Woman said...

You guys are too funny...but she does need an intervention, or at least some trustworthy folks around to advise her that she will actually listen to.

Believe it or not, I didn't even think of her plastic surgery when I wrote this...that's how raggedy her ish is right now that there is so much else going on.

I read that it was Adina Jewel too, not Fox, but the fact that lots of folks think you are capable of being the person in that video speaks volumes. I mean, if someone had a Patty Labelle lookalike and said it was her sex tape, we'd be more inclined not to believe it, cause we don't see Patty going out like that.

Hmmmm, maybe I should have used a different example, but you know what I mean!

And BHC---maybe you can send her a couple of your headwraps. Blackactor: don't worry, I am constantly making mistakes in comments, including here.

Eb the Celeb said...

Everything here is right on

Darkbrotha said...

she used to be one of myfavorite "B" actresses. guess i have to watch her on a different screen now if she's gonna make flicks like that. not that i don't mind.

i wonder if she can still breath through that nose?

Bohemian Hippie Chick said...

IW, I'm gonna have to send her a few headwraps, some incense and a meditation DVD...hopefully she'll find her Chi and be peaceful. :)

Invisible Woman said...

@BHC-girl, send it FedEx!

@darkbrotha: speaking of which, I might have to check out your "other" site too--lol!

darkbrotha said...

:) dang...you remembered that! i can't remember what i had for lunch yesterday.

Invisible Woman said...

DB: LOL!!
