VEN (NEW YORK) –– MSNBC‘s reality-challenged amygdala-highjacked, homophobic television personality Joy Reed sat down with VEN‘s Senior Relationship Correspondent Dr Joyce Milgram Sunday, to discuss the recent controversy surrounding the anti-gay postings on her now-defunct blog from 2007.
This is what she had to say.
VEN — Let’s get right to it — Joy, why did it take you so long to come clean on having written the posts attributed to you on your former blog? First you said it was a forgery, then when that proved false that your blog was hacked, and when that proved false finally — and seemingly against your will — you reluctantly admitted the posts were yours.
Why not just tell the truth from the beginning?
Joy Reid — Joyce, in my mind I was telling the truth. I’m sure y’all have heard about astral projection and such things as the astral plan and the aramashmic record?
VEN — The astral plane and akashic records? Yes, I’ve heard of them.
JR — Well, that’s where I was at that time. In another dimension. I had dissociated myself from the terrible things President Trump was doing to America at that time.
VEN — But those homophobic posts were written between 2007 and 2009, well before the Trump presidency.
JR — Correct. That’s why at first I could not believe that I had actually written them.
VEN — But ultimately you were forced to acknowledge the posts. Can you tell us what prompted them?
JR — I was dating the love of my life at the time, De’Various Marteen (with two ‘E’s) who danced with the Alvin Ailey Company. I come home one night, and there he is in MY bed with my hairdresser, Mr Cornelius. And who hidin’ in the closet? A New York Yankee who shall remain nameless!
VEN — And then what happened?
JR — I don’t really know. I traveled in my mind to another planet where there were no gay black men.
VEN — For how long?
JR — About 9 years. Eight or 9 years.
VEN — But you kept working at MSNBC and posting homophobic tweets during that time?
JR — A New York Yankee, Joyce. A goddamn NEW YORK YANKEE! In my closet! Wearin’ one my dresses! An that bitch ass homo De’Various standing there all homo’ed up lyin’ right to my muthaf**in face! Sayin’ we ain’t onna down low, we jess frens! Bullshit, you faggoty azz bitch! What kine frens be necked in muh bed!
VEN — And that’s when you projected yourself to another planet?
JR — Yes, where I lived very peacefully — homo free — for several years.
