POSTER GIRL FOR BAD BEHAVIOR

When we first heard about, YaVaughnie Wilkins, the jilted lover of a very rich man and her poster project, it seemed like a story straight out of a tabloid. Instead, her love story was straight out of a tabloid. We felt her pain upon learning that the man she thought was hers for keeps was going back to his wife for keeps. We’ll never know the nitty-gritty - with or without it all of our lives will go on. And we hope she will too.

Recently, we watched an interesting documentary about the flamboyant congressman Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Apparently when he and his wife, the fabulous jazz pianist Hazel Scott divorced, people tried to get her to talk about him and their marriage. She said something very poignant, “My mother taught me that some things should stay in your room.”

Ms. Wilkins, who probably has many rooms to have afforded such a campaign, didn’t watch this documentary. Maybe the posters had already been printed or maybe she had already been dumped. We may have felt her pain but we’re not feeling her foray into the public relations business either. Yo, YaVaughnie, can you spell dignity?

We think of the good she could’ve done with the money spent. She took a very low road to high places, major billboards up in the sky for all to see. If she has any money left, we suggest she send it to Haiti. In fact, maybe she should go to Haiti and see for herself something to be really brokenhearted about.

All is not lost; it’s never too late to start minding your manners. But for now, we suggest she go to her room, regroup and come out with all the grace and dignity she can muster. We're rooting for her.

Yes and No! I'm very happy HE was exposed. She is absolutely wrong for seeing a married man BUT, let's not forget - HE IS A CHEATING BASTARD! And, he doesn't get out of this so easily.

If she has the money to spend, she just made a huge statement.

Clearly her heart is broken and she is a women scorned. Once, she's done losing HER MIND, I'm not sure if it just might be to late for grace.

But, seriously I feel bad for the wife.

liked it..think it's good..point well made.. and of course well written as always....none the less...

.i'm still glad girl friend she did what she did.....

too many guys sneakin aorund with so many women...and they get away with it....

between her and tiger's wife breaking his face...it gives them something to think about......!

and what she did is the only real way to get back at a guy of that calibre.....except ...and i liked that

she did it all with messages of love as opposed to hate....the only other thing that would have hurt him

the way he was so careless with his feelings...and i'[m not talking about the fact that he decided to go

back to his wife...but the fact that he hid he was married...introduced her to his children and that type of thing.....the only thing she could have done was said he had a small penis.....once you say that to a guy....

or publicly about him.....well that hurts the most....and there is no chance of anything....like bernie

madoff's girl friend !!!!!!

I can't believe she "played"
herself like that.

She should have spent that
money on a psychiatrist.

A man gonna be a man IF YOU
LET HIM!

The huge statement she made
is that she's a pyscho-bitch.

I wonder if the lady on the billboard ever stopped to think that having the relationship with the guy was, in itself, an outrageous act of hostility toward the other woman and the guy's family. Has she no conscience? Has she never thought that that same thing would probably happen to her if she managed to get him to leave his wife and family?
