Tony Rock: LisaRaye Is A B–ch!

I was never that big a fan of All of Us.

While the show had potential given the cast and Will Smith and Jada Pinkett serving as executive producers, the show missed the mark.

It started off all right but as time went on as funny as Duane Martin can be (that is, if you love Out All Night), his weekly impersonation of Will Smith got old really quickly.

To be honest, the behind the scenes drama of the show seemed more captivating than what we saw on TV.

There was talk that Elise Neal was fired over complaining about not receiving as much money as LisaRaye. Her character’s exit from the show pretty much killed the premise of the series.

Though Elise seems to have moved on from her experiences on the show, not everyone is willing to let bygones be bygones.

While performing at the Improv in D.C., Tony Rock was asked about what happened to the show.

His response:

“What happened? Oh I’ma keep it real….. that b–ch LisaRaye! That b–ch LisaRaye got married to that fake prince dude from that Island and decided that she didn’t want to do the show no more. She just said f–k the rest of us. Then dude cheated on her, beat her ass and now they’re divorced! I’m telling y’all karma is real….”

I’m guessing he didn’t send her a wedding gift.

She became a wife and nothing is wrong with her taking time away to be a wife. She did not know her husband was being deceptive and going to end up treating her like that just like every other woman who had her husband commit adultery/abusive. Tony Rock sounds bitter because the show seems to be the only thing he had going that made him relevant. Somebody has got to be the star of the show, sorry! That is the way it is. Just wish they would have brought another girlfriend on the show instead of writing her out all together. But anywho, the show would have been cancelled anyway along with the other shows like girlfriends, etc. Get Over it Tony Rock, you are sounding like the B-atch..

Well, I can understand Tony’s point of view as well as Lisa’s. I can understand her wanting to be there for her husband even though he eventually cheated on her. At the same time, a job is work, especially when you sign on to do something, you should not only finish it but put your all and best into it. Single mothers do it all the time, but it’s a shame that they all could not work together and come to some sort of understanding because the show was really good and fun to watch. It had some very powerful and positive messages at the end. It’s sad that some of black shows don’t prosper like they should, when infact alot of them are way better than those dorky white shows!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dear: To Whom It May Concern,

I agree with 85% of the above two comments. However, I do believe tony may just be upset and not that he doesn’t have an investment exit strategy (meaning he doesn’t have anything else going on in his life financially prosperously speaking, but maybe he just clearly enjoyed the show and his character a lot which is why he may just be venting). Also, its understood that its sometimes hard to find the ideal acting roll that fits actors overall character. This is one reason why actors don’t take certain rolls.For example, You can also see this demonstrated from watching the Bet commercial regarding one male black actors being interviewed. I believe the actor stated “He does not take on projects that demean other black people”. Based on this previous statement its clear ethical values are at hand and it is an integral part of the issue when actors decide what rolls to take and not take. So, again it could be a lack of good rolls available. Anyway, when you first don’t succeed try try again is what Will Smith and Jada the two producers of the show must focus on which I’m 100% sure or believe their working on or at least seeking an alternative good quality show or some other project that is the equivalent. Will Smith and Jada are very successful and intelligent individuals. I’m sure they’ll manifest something in the near future that will be better or the equivalent (meaning project) which will meet or surpass their above show’s rating level if they do not have the same show continue for the next season.

i think she is a b**** too. she think she the s*** and thats why she got cheated on. you just dont drop everything for no man. im sorry thats where she messed up at. i dont care what he is or how much money he has bc eventually its 2009 women have to fall back on their own money. so in my opinion she a stupid broad and took away money from everybody else bc she was selfish. she couldve been married and still lived her life. i wasnt a fan of the show i thought it was cheesy manly bc of her. they needed another character. everybody else was cool to me.the show was a good concept but it just didnt turn out right especially when elise neal left that was the whole purpose of the show , that plot alone.

Good Morning! Lisa Raye

I dont think she owes anyone anything, except to herself. If she wants to go get married and have a life, then he should respect that and stop calling her those names, its not nice…

You are right Stacey-Dee….What they are saying isnot right…

Sounds like jealousy to me. Do you have a personal vendetta?
Maybe she left after she got married because she didn’t want to be in one place while her husband was in another. LisaRaye has her own money to fall back on, so it’s not that big of a deal that she stopped working for a while. Women do it all the time. As for him cheating, there’s no excuse for that. No person should be blamed for the misdeeds of his or her partner. That’s just low. Plus, the show had run its course. The premise didn’t work after Elise left/was let go. Tony just sounds bitter because he doesn’t have that steady TV job anymore. Besides, I always thought that he was the corny one. LisaRaye’s character was my favorite.

i think she had the right to decide to stop working to be with her husband. there is nothing wrong with that. if alot of actors and actresses would do that it would be a lot less divorce in the industryl. she had no idea that man was like don’t alot of people would find that out about their spouse. tony is just bitter because he cannot find nothing else that is putting that kind of money in his pocket. we didn’t know him before this and he is afraid we will forget him after this. he was funny on the show, but good things must come to an end. he should have had a back up plan.

lisa raye is not a good actress anyway…she would do much better in silent movies with no sound so you can only look at her and not hear her terrible acting…

umm bebefj123 tony rock doent seem bitter at all, they had a show and lisa ray just up and left it cuz she thought she was getting into a hppy marrige and stuff, tony raco has a lot of stuff going on for him , you sound like a angry for no reason sista!

gina lee said on June 19th, 2009

you really think Lisa Raye had that power? If the NETWORK wanted the show to continue they could have done so with a Lisa Raye look alike. As for the show… I loved it!!! and Niecey was the funniest character!!! I watch the reruns today which I believe are in syndication… so Tony’s getting paid!!!!

lisa raye is not all that..and Tony has a right to be angry because she messed up the show…Will and Jada hand picked her so without her there was no show…she was selfish and could have worked it out better than what she did…her nose was wide open with that fake break man… and then she ended up looking like the fool…
