Serena Williams is really not doing a great job recovering from the victim-blaming comments about the Steubenville rape that she made during an interview with Rolling Stone. Her first apology was incredibly lame, mostly because she referred to it as “what I supposedly said,” insinuating that the reporter had misinterpreted her words that were not actually meant for the article.

“What happened in Steubenville was a real shock for me. I was deeply saddened. For someone to be raped, and at only sixteen, is such a horrible tragedy! For both families involved – that of the rape victim and of the accused. I am currently reaching out to the girl’s family to let her know that I am deeply sorry for what was written in the Rolling Stone article. What was written – what I supposedly said – is insensitive and hurtful, and I by no means would say or insinuate that she was at all to blame.”

Williams has since come out with a slightly more convincing apology, but seems more annoyed that what she said was published instead of the fact she said it. The tennis star said she reached out to the Steubenville rape victim and her mother and ”we came to a wonderful understanding, and we’re constantly in contact.” Regarding her comments, Williams said: Keep reading »

“Do you think it was fair, what they got? They did something stupid, but I don’t know. I’m not blaming the girl, but if you’re a 16-year-old and you’re drunk like that, your parents should teach you: Don’t take drinks from other people. She’s 16, why was she that drunk where she doesn’t remember? It could have been much worse. She’s lucky. Obviously, I don’t know, maybe she wasn’t a virgin, but she shouldn’t have put herself in that position, unless they slipped her something, then that’s different.”

– Allow me to parse this quote from Serena Williams‘ about the Steubenville rape victim, which she shared in an interview with Rolling Stone. By asking if the sentencing for Ma’lik Richmond and Trent Mays was fair — they got one year and two years, respectively, by the way — Williams’ seems to be implying that she thinks the punishment might be harsh. After all, “they did something stupid, but…” Because raping someone is just “stupid”? Not the first adjective I would use, but okay. Williams then goes on to criticize the victim who, by all accounts, was doing what all her other fellow classmates (including the rapists) were doing that night — drinking at a high school party. Should parents have serious conversations with their children — girls and boys — about underage drinking and binge drinking? Of course. Does that mean that the victim is responsible for the despicable things those young men did to her while she was passed out? Absolutely not. And what does her virginity or lack thereof have to do with anything? But what I find most bothersome about Williams’ statement is that she starts off by calling what the rapists did “stupid,” but then says that the victim is “lucky” it wasn’t “much worse.” So which is it, Serena? Are the rapists in this case simply “stupid” or are they capable of “much worse”? Also, saying “I’m not blaming the girl” before BLAMING THE GIRL doesn’t negate the fact that you’re, in fact, blaming the girl. [Rolling Stone[Photo: Fame/Flynet]

UPDATE: Annnnd Serena has already released a statement apologizing, sort of, for her comments. Read it after the jump: Keep reading »

I am obsessed with Serena Williams. In fact, she’s kind of my idol. I mean, this woman can serve a tennis ball at 128 miles per hour(!), win $38 million in prize money, wear a lycra catsuit at the US Open, swear at line judges, guest star on “Law and Order: SVU,” sell clothes on the Home Shopping Network, and become a certified nail technician. She is a goddess. Needless to say, I think she looks sizzling in this tight red dress she wore for a post-gold medal appearance on “Letterman.” Paired with embellished platforms and big, beautiful hair, this outfit is freakin’ fierce. Game, set, match! [Photo: Splash News]

French Tennis Player Says Men Deserve To Be Paid More Than Women

Today's Lady News photo
  • French tennis player Gilles Simon recently said male players should be paid more than females at Grand Slam tennis events. When there was pushback against his remarks, he only dug the hole deeper, saying, “My point was that I have the feeling that men’s tennis is actually more interesting than women’s tennis. As in any business or anything, you just have to be paid just about that. It’s not because we play five sets and they are playing three.” Not surprisingly, Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova both vehemently disagree. What do you think about his remarks? (I’m not going to pretend to know much about professional tennis here.) [ESPN, Sports Illustrated] Keep reading »

Serena Williams Gets Fined, Again, Bringing Her Tab Above $93,000

On Sunday night, Serena Williams was not pleased with a line judge at the US Open. During a match against Sam Stosur, Williams got frustrated and snapped at said judge, “You’re out of control … You’re a hater, and you’re just unattractive inside … Really, don’t even look at me.” These words were pretty tame for Serena—I can just imagine a coach doing drills with her to practice saying “unattractive inside” instead of an expletive. But still, she was given a $2,000 fine for the incident. So does Serena regret her words? “I don’t even remember what I said. It was just so intense out there,” she explained. “I guess I’ll see it on YouTube.” [Newser]

Oh, but this is not the first time Serena has been fined. After the jump, a full rundown. Keep reading »

Quotable: Serena Williams Knows It Hurts To Be Beautiful

“One time I was at the net — one of the few times I come up to the net — and I hit a volley and my earring hit me in the eye and I couldn’t see. I eventually had to take them off. Now I practice in my jewelry before I play. You know, you’re on the court, you’re grunting, you’re sweating. It’s not your best look. So I just try to accessorize a bit.”

Serena Williams has her priorities and those priorities include accessorizing. [Style.com] Keep reading »
