The T.O. Show's Kita Williams: 'I Do Not Condone Women Who Date Married Men'

Kita Williams is one of the feisty publicists responsible for maintaining the reputation of Cincinatti Bengals wide receiver, Terrell Owens. She was often seen on The TO Show as the perpetual single lady until it was revealed in season two that she had been dating a man named Joe for over a year. However, just when it seemed like Kita found her perfect man he revealed that he was legally married but separated from his wife, which didn't go over well. Despite the fact that Joe planned to get a divorce, Kita felt that she should have known early on and that the only way they could move on is if his actions really backed up his words. Here, Kita explains her views on marriage and why women need to value themselves and make men work for their love.


Love comes with flaws sometimes, but I do not condone women who date married men or women who are with a man and knows that he’s married and are okay with it. I know that there are some women who don’t care, obviously, and there are times where he says, “I’m getting a divorce” but the question is are they really going to do that?

With Joe, I feel I had the right to know [if he was married], even if he thought it wasn’t a good time for it to come out. I was more upset at not having the option to opt out of [the relationship] before being in it. Don’t get me wrong, he’s a great guy and has been nothing other than a man besides telling me. He knew that I would opt out of it before knowing his whole situation so that was the hard part. I’ll admit, my emotions got the best of me but in those moments I felt bamboozled. He has since filed for divorce and started the process and I’m trying to figure out what direction this relationship between he and I will take. Joe is fighting for love right now but I’m gonna make him work.

I’ve had third degree burns from love, and since I’ve been burned from love I never looked to love as being the answer to my happiness. This is probably why "the cookies" is one of the things that’s very important. No matter how old you get, when you have sex with someone, you are connected forever. When I got out of my previous relationship, when I met Joe, is when I decided that I was gonna keep my cookies in my cookie jar. I felt like it was time for me to focus on Kita. Sex is one thing, but intimacy with a person is another. You get that when you know someone and it’s priceless so that’s when I held off on the cookies. I think if women understood more that sex isn’t just a physical act and that we actually hold that power, men would act right. I’m not saying act right in terms of obey me or abide by my rules; I’m saying in terms of the chivalry, in terms of the old school traditional, as my mom says, “courting.”

Joe also understood that I wasn’t just giving up the cookies and he was okay with that. In the relationship that we were in, we both had to be open about everything. His marriage situation is something he kept?like I kept my cookies?he kept that in his cookie jar and the one thing I will say is and whether it's Joe, whether it’s Jeff, whether it’s Jabar, marriage is a covenant that you take before God and I take that very seriously. When you take a covenant before God, to me, it’s something you can’t play with and because I didn’t know I was highly upset. ?As Told To Starrene Rhett

ESPN's Michael Jordan Docuseries 'The Last Dance' Pushed Up To April

Basketball fans have been going through withdrawals since the NBA has suspended its season because of the coronavirus, but they'll get the next best thing. ESPN has announced that its Michael Jordan documentary The Last Dance would be released in April instead of June.

The Last Dance, a ten-part series, will now begin on April 19. It tells the story of Jordan and the Bulls' last championship season in 1997-1998, and includes never-before-seen footage from an NBA Entertainment crew that followed them around that year. ESPN also spoke to more than 100 people close to the team.

"As society navigates this time without live sports, viewers are still looking to the sports world to escape and enjoy a collective experience," ESPN said in a statement. "We've heard the calls from fans asking us to move up the release date for this series, and we're happy to announce that we've been able to accelerate the production schedule to do just that. This project celebrates one of the greatest players and dynasties ever, and we hope it can serve as a unifying entertainment experience to fill the role that sports often play in our lives, telling a story that will captivate everyone, not just sports fans."

The NBA suspended its season after two-time defensive player of the year Rudy Gobert, of the Utah Jazz, tested positive for the coronavirus. Had the season not been suspended, fans would be preparing for the NBA's playoff race. Other sports leagues followed suit after the NBA's decision, and other athletes, including Gobert's teammate Donovan Mitchell and Brooklyn Nets Star Kevin Durant, have also tested positive. Mitchell and Gobert have since been cleared of the virus.
