Dr. Drew On Chris Brown & Rihanna

Dr. Drew Pinsky hit up Lance Bass’ SiriusXM radio show and made some eyebrow-raising comments regarding Chris Brown and Rihanna. He started off on a high note, discussing how difficult it is for a woman to leave her abuser. “On average, it takes a woman in a domestic violence situation eight attempts at leaving before she leaves,” Dr. Drew said. “They go back — they misinterpret the intensity as love. They think it’s so intense and great, ‘He loves me so much, that’s why he got so upset.’ We haven’t heard the end of this.”

Lance Bass then asked him if he thinks Rihanna has battered woman syndrome and Dr. Drew replied, “Let’s face it, she’s attracted to that …  Listen, I don’t fault either person. I don’t [say,] ‘Oh, it’s a bad person.’ These are human experiences. These are very common situations these days.” Keep reading »

Indian Judge To Abused Wife: “Why Are You Still Talking About His Beatings?”

Today's Lady News photo
  • A judge in India completely dismissed a woman in his courtroom in the most offensive, Pat Robertson-ian way possible: he told her “Your husband is doing good business. He will take care of you. Why are you still talking about his beatings?” The 28-year-old was challenging her husband in a domestic abuse case, but the judge told her that all women suffer in marriages and she should learn to deal with it. Justice Bhaktavatsala then helpfully suggested that the abusive husband take his wife and their son out to lunch. Facepalm. [Daily Mail UK]
