Speaker 1 (00:31):
Nephew A subject he makes excuses for her body count.
Dear Stephen Shirley, one of my oldest friends got reacquainted
with a girl we went to high school with, and
he was so excited that she wants him. He is
trying to marry her. My husband and I invited them
to dinner, and I purposely did not tell my husband
anything about the ladies past. I let him meet her

(00:54):
and form his own opinion just from sitting and talking
to them for two hours. My husband said that my
friend is so caught up by her beauty. There's nothing
I can do or say about this girl to make
him leave her. This woman is thirty three years old now,
and she slowed down a lot and said she's in
love with my friend and ready to be a wife.

(01:15):
She left high school early to go to Arizona to
live with a pro basketball player. I heard she later
got a ged, but there's no proof of it. After
he dumped her, she got with the Chicago Bulls player
and moved to Chicago to be with him. That didn't
last because his wife found out about the affair and
ran her out of town. There have been so many

(01:36):
rumors circling that she has been having sex for money
to keep up the lifestyle. Then she started selling the
expensive gifts that she got from her man. From her men,
she has been called a professional side chick for years.
Her only saving grace is that she's beautiful and that
her body's still tight. But now that she's got lots

(01:58):
of mileage on that perfect body, she wants to settle
down with my nerdy friend because he's wealthy. I asked
my friend how he could overlook her body count, and
he said that she never had any children with these men,
so he's allowing her to wipe her slate clean and
start over. My husband said it's too late. My friend
is sprung, but how can he overlook her body? Count?

(02:20):
Mind your business? I mean you're judging this woman who
could very well be more mature now change for the
better and ready to settle down. I mean, these are rumors.
You said it in the letter. These are things you've
heard about this woman. How do you know if a
word of it is true? Is she selling her body now?
Is she a gold digger? Now? For her to have
done all the things you claim and her looks and

(02:43):
body are still intact, I'll just say this, she doesn't
look like what she's been through like many of us.

Speaker 2 (02:49):
And so what.

Speaker 1 (02:51):
If your friend is mesmerized by her beauty? Men are visual,
don't you know that? And they love beautiful women. Your
friend's wealthy. You say, well, that's what many wealthy men do.
They go after they married, they date beautiful women. Look around,
look around. Businessmen do it, athletes do it, entertainers do it,

(03:13):
and on. This is life and how the world works.
I mean, I would be way more concerned if she
was a horrible person and you said she was ugly
on the inside, But you didn't say that, So I
don't get what your problem with any of this. Is
your friend is a grown man. Your husband is right,
it is too late. Your friend is sprung and they're

(03:33):
in love. I think you need to worry about your
own marriage and let them be happy.

Speaker 2 (03:38):
Steve.

Speaker 3 (03:40):
You know what, I see a letter full of redemption,
and then I see this hater them. Yeah, okay, Now
I want to read the letter line by line and
I'm gonna point out the redemption, and then I'm gonna
show you the hate, because that's all it is. And
then maybe I had time to do all this, and
then y'all can ask me questions on the second half.

(04:02):
How can a man do this? Okay, let's go din Shirley.
One of my old friends got reacquainted with a girl
we went to high school with, and he's so excited
that she wants him. He's trying to marry her. Now,
my husband and I, now, so this is a woman
writing this letter. Now, so my husband and I invited

(04:25):
them to dinner, and I purposely didn't tell my husband
anything about the lady's past.

Speaker 2 (04:31):

Speaker 3 (04:32):
Your husband don't know the lady, right, I let him
meet her and form his own opinion, and for sitting

that there's nothing I can do or say about this
girl to make him leave her.

Speaker 2 (04:47):
Okay, now we've got that out the way. Now let's
start going.

Speaker 3 (04:50):
This woman is thirty three years old, and now she's
This woman is thirty three years old, and now she
has slowed down a lot. That's called redemption. That's the
called learning from your mistakes. Slowed down a lot. But then,

Speaker 2 (05:06):
Though?

Speaker 3 (05:07):
She said she's in love with my friend and whether

young person. Oh my god, I heard, oh hearsay rumor.
I heard she later got a ged, but there's no
proof of it.

Speaker 2 (05:48):
Okay, so what Wow?

Speaker 3 (05:52):
She thirty three after he dumped her, she got with

I thought this was her friend right now? No, no, no, no, no, no,
the demand is her friend friend. Oh that's why she

(06:13):

Speaker 1 (06:55):
All right, Come on, Steve, let's recap today's letter. The
subject is he makes excuse since for her body count.

Speaker 3 (07:02):
Here's this woman who's got this male friend and went
to high school with him, and he'd have met this
new girl. Obviously, she didn't care for the girl back
in high school, so she invited them out to dinner
with her and.

Speaker 2 (07:14):
Her husband so he could pass judgment for herself.

Speaker 3 (07:18):
After two hours of conversation, he decided this man ain't
going nowhere because she sprung on her looks.

Speaker 2 (07:24):
Let's get this out the way. Damn. She fine, she's beautiful.
Listen to me. I'm talking about putt all right now.

Speaker 3 (07:40):
You say the woman is thirty three, and she'd have
slowed down a lot. Okay, redemption, people change. She's in
love with my friend and ready to be a wife. Okay,
that's good. She left high school early to go to
Arizona LID with a pro basketball player. Okay, you make
mistakes when you're young. I heard she later got a GED,
but there's no proof of it. You know, GEDs don't

(08:02):
really up your life that much. I'm just gonna go
and tell you that right now. High school diplombers ain't
trying that much for me either. So I got a
high school diploma. I ain't ever been able to flash
that in nobody faith. It's out of high school diplomb out.
I ain't ever been able to flex with that work.

Speaker 2 (08:18):
Not now. Damn time.

Speaker 3 (08:21):
After he dumped us, she got with the Chicago bull
player moved to Chicago. That didn't last because his wife
found out about their fam and she ran her out
of town.

Speaker 2 (08:31):
Okay, another mistake.

Speaker 3 (08:33):
There been so many rumors, rumors, rumors, ladies circling that
she's been having sex for money to keep up the lifestyle.
Let's stop right here. She's been having sex for money.
Men use money for sex. It's been the exchange since.

Speaker 2 (08:52):
The beginning of time.

Speaker 3 (08:54):
Women have give sex for money, men give money for sex. Now,
if it's a direct transaction, that's prostitution, yep.

Speaker 2 (09:06):
But the other transaction is called dating. Yep.

Speaker 3 (09:11):
It's called dating and expensive ding ding ding ding, whining
and dying ding ding ding ding.

Speaker 2 (09:21):
All right.

Speaker 3 (09:21):
Then she started selling the expensive gifts she got from
her men. That's because you know, she decided to change
her life. Let me sell some of this stuff. It
don't mean nothing to me no more. She has been
called a professional side chick for years.

Speaker 2 (09:35):
Okay, so soul.

Speaker 3 (09:38):
Her only saving grace is that she's beautiful and her
body's still tight.

Speaker 2 (09:42):
Let me tell you some about that same man.

Speaker 3 (09:44):
That's Helen, that is Hella, Hella. Don't you underplay this girl.
Don't you not give her her full credit?

Speaker 2 (09:52):
Now?

Speaker 3 (09:54):
Her only saving grace is that she's beautiful and her
body is still tight. But nah, that she got lots
of knowledge on that perfect body.

Speaker 2 (10:03):
You don't know that, right, She's no clue.

Speaker 3 (10:07):
And Shirley said something that stunned me and her her idea.

money and all that. Is that what you're talking about?

Speaker 1 (10:40):

She want to settle down my herdy friend because he's wealthy?

Speaker 2 (11:02):

He said, she ain't never had no kid with.

Speaker 2 (11:11):
These men, chill. Yeah, damn right though, damn right.

Speaker 3 (11:17):
And so now he's allowing her to wipe her slate
clean and start over.

Speaker 2 (11:22):
God, did my husband.

Speaker 3 (11:27):
Say it's too late? My friend is sprong? Your husband right?
But how can he overlook her body count? Let me
tell you how we can overlook the body count. You
can't count what you can't see. You can't count what
you don't see. You can't count what you ain't looking at.
And you got more rumors in this letter then you

(11:48):
got facts. You got more Hear'Say in this letter than
you got facts. Because right now, all I saw on
this letter for this thirty three year old woman, all
I saw was two men, an Arizona ballplayer and a
Chicago ballplayer.

Speaker 2 (12:03):
That's all I saw in this and letter.

Speaker 3 (12:06):
And now your friend, which holds onto the fact of
what I tell women all the time when a man
asks you your body count, your maximum number is three Arizona, Chicago.
And now the nerd, Hello, she's standing strong to me,
But how can he overlook her body count?

Speaker 2 (12:24):
