This week I interviewed Brian Smith on Worth More Than Rubies. Brian is the author of Mama's Lies Daddy's Pain.
In his book, Brian delves into "Baby Mama Drama" like never before. The female character in his book has allowed the male character in the book to believe that he is the father of her daugher 17 years. But, he really isn't
Jamal, the male character, has done everything for this child and in the end the child snubs him as well.
When I read the book, I must say that it angered me. Having been a single mother myself, I never received a dime from my sons' father. So, I personally find it reprehensible that a womam would do something like this.
Now, I have heard the other side of the story in which someone suggested that negative attention is better that no attention and maybe this "Baby Mama" did this because she still had a thing for Jamal. How pathetic!
Anyway, it makes me wonder if some "deadbeat dads", who know their "baby mama's, may have a point when they don't want to send money to them. We're talking about mama's who use the money for hair, nails, and boyfriends, instead of the children.
What do you think?
