This is a whole new world for me," she said. "I'm not an expert on this, or I don't analyze these things. I'm just sort of living my life."

Holly recently opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about RJ, who was diagnosed with autism at the age of 3.

RJ is going on 13. Loves all sports; MLB especially. By the way: Puberty plus autism? Challenging! Even more than for typical adolescents. It can cause aggressive behavior and depression. Big transitional hurdle. Another thing you don't read too much about. We are seeing some regression which is not fun. But he is verbal, affable, he has friends and plays team sports - all of which we were told he'd never do."

Holly and her husband, former NFL quarterback Rodney Peete, are also parents to Ryan, 12, Robinson, 7, and Roman, 5.

Rodney Peete & Holly Robinson Peete: Autism Started To Consume The Marriage

In the May issue of Redbook, Celebrity Apprentice star Holly Robinson Peete and her husband, former NFL quarterback Rodney Peete, reveal their rocky past that brought them to the brink of divorce and how they found strength to face their son RJ’s autism diagnosis.

Holly, on dealing with their son RJ’s diagnosis: “We went through this emotional connection, and we just cried in each other’s arms. We didn’t know what the hell this autism thing was. We were both in denial for a few weeks.” Rodney adds: “I stayed angry and blamed the doctor and was still in denial—while Holly basically rolled up her sleeves and did what needed to be done.”

Holly, on how they disconnected after RJ's diagnosis with autism: "We did have conversations, but Rodney shut down. Part of being in denial is that you don't talk about your feelings. I would do these all-nighters with him, and the poor guy would just lie there in bed curled up. I'd say, 'Are you listening to me?!' until 3, 4 in the morning. He wouldn't respond, so I felt disconnected from him. He didn't understand what I was going through, or what his son was going through — or he wasn't trying to. I don't think we had any conversations that could get us anywhere because he hadn't come to terms with his feelings."

John Mayer’s dick is affiliated with the KKK

Because John Mayer’s interview with Playboy had way too many gems for us to be able to include in just one post, here’s part II, which if we’re right with our estimations will get him shot in the heart by next week, or at the very least cause him the loss of a kidney…or the obliteration of his KKK dick. You never know what his enraged black brothers might do. Yes, that’s right, his brothers, because did we mention John Mayer is black?

MAYER: It depends on what I picked up. My two biggest hits are “Your Body Is a Wonderland” and “Daughters.” If you think those songs are pandering, then you’ll think I’m a douche bag. It’s like I come on very strong. I am a very…I’m just very. V-E-R-Y. And if you can’t handle very, then I’m a douche bag. But I think the world needs a little very. That’s why black people love me.
PLAYBOY: Because you’re very?
MAYER: Someone asked me the other day, “What does it feel like now to have a hood pass?” And by the way, it’s sort of a contradiction in terms, because if you really had a hood pass, you could call it a n-gger pass. Why are you pulling a punch and calling it a hood pass if you really have a hood pass? But I said, “I can’t really have a hood pass. I’ve never walked into a restaurant, asked for a table and been told, ‘We’re full.’”
PLAYBOY: It is true; a lot of rappers love you. You recorded with Common and Kanye West, played live with Jay-Z.
MAYER: What is being black? It’s making the most of your life, not taking a single moment for granted. Taking something that’s seen as a struggle and making it work for you, or you’ll die inside. Not to say that my struggle is like the collective struggle of black America. But maybe my struggle is similar to one black dude’s.
PLAYBOY: Do black women throw themselves at you?
MAYER: I don’t think I open myself to it. My dick is sort of like a white supremacist. I’ve got a Benetton heart and a fuckin’ David Duke cock. I’m going to start dating separately from my dick.
PLAYBOY: Let’s put some names out there. Let’s get specific.
MAYER: I always thought Holly Robinson Peete was gorgeous. Every white dude loved Hilary from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. And Kerry Washington. She’s superhot, and she’s also white-girl crazy. Kerry Washington would break your heart like a white girl. Just all of a sudden she’d be like, “Yeah, I sucked his dick. Whatever.” And you’d be like, “What? We weren’t talking about that.” That’s what “Heartbreak Warfare” is all about, when a girl uses jealousy as a tactic.


Which One Would You Hit??
