Please pray for my friend....

Hey y'all. I haven't left blogville not at, all just missing in action. Away visiting with one of my closest friends Ms Lyle Dorsey aka -La Consuelos Leilei. My friend Lyle is HIV positive and very ill at the moment. I needed to go spend time with him cause he was dealing with so much and wasn't sure how much longer he had to live. Before I proceed, let me tell you all a little about my friend.
They say every fashionista has a gay moose, well mine is my dear friend Lyle. He is my biggest critique and adviser. Lyle used to be one of the best hair dressers/make up artist you could ever meet in the Northeast, my girl will have you looking like a diva in a minute.
He is also one person who can put you straight, tell it like it is.. Case in point: I just flew into Dallas, where he currently relocated to since he got ill to be near family, rented a car and, checked into a hotel and proceeded to go see him..getting to his apartment I knocked and he rushed out to meet me. first words out of him mouth:
Lyle: Bitch! Where are your bags, tell me they're in the car!!
Me: I'm glad to see you too, they are in the hotel room.
Lyle: Hotel! You bourgeois bithes kill me, I'm out here fixing your ass a room and you got a hotel, I should slap you in the mouth, scrawny, half dead motherfucker.. You look good, a few extra pounds but you alright by me..is that Balenciaga?.. I hate your ass, come here girl, oh I've missed your bourgeios ass...
That's my friend. We had a lot fun the few days I spent there, he's much better though, still stressed and distressed but he danced and sang for me,mixed me a tape of love songs, we went shopping and got pedicures were he proceeded to curse the Chinese lady out and accuse me being prejudiced against other races right infront of the lady.
I had to leave and head back to New York and he just sat there crying. I have never seen my girl cry but he did and guess the words out of his mouth right after the "crocodile tears"
Lyle: What are using on your face (I'd been breaking out over stress)
Me: Lancome why?
Lyle: You need to get a refund honey, on a scale of 1-10 right now booboo, your face is a 6 and that is not good enough, you need to get into the beauty supply store and get you some ambi, it's all but $2. You need to quit hanging around dem white people with their products.. it aint for you booboo, you're black!! And oh yeah, you been real grouchy since you got here.. I suggest you let someone play around in that "monkey" catch a tail or something. You too young to be this uptight.
Me: Thanks lyle, you are a real inspiration.
Lyle: Bitch! I tell like it is, aint no way around the truth.
He asked me almost every half hour while I was with him to to pray for him, and I do, I really do. I just hate the fact that it's gonna end like this for him. He chose this lifestlye and lived it roughly I must say- He was a Serial dater, a complete flirt and charmer. You can tell from the before and after pictures that he has lost a lot of weight, but he still retains his fabulous personality and run way walk.
Please pray for Lyle, HIV/Aids is real and can happen to anyone.

Ive tried all i can 2 understand gay ppl and accept em but i just cant

Ive been humbled myself and i dnt judge ppl but hard as i try i still dnt feel sori 4 d gay guy or aristo babe thats hiv positive

We have the heart of God being made in his likeness and shpuld not judge or condemn anyone, my friedn is very gay but has a gigantic heart. He's still my friend and will always have a place in my heart. I don't necessarily support his lifesyle but I keep praying for the repose of his soul. Thx for the concern though.

It's not over until it's over. I said a prayer and I'll say more.

BOBBY said...

Jummy just so you know and while you are there, that your husband can come home and give you AIDS. Just so you know.

AIDS is no respecter of Sex, Race, etc.

It can happen to anyone.

So please think before you speak or write!

You think only Aristo babes & Gay men catch the disease? Think again.

jummy said...

bobby no be fight nah

i totally agree any1 can get aids
im just saying i know how i feel is wrong and should try and be more empathetic but i dunno y i dont feel sori for gays and aristo babes more like they called it upon themselves

Hi 2 cents i love your blog and i want you to know youre such a woman of strength for keeping your baby. I am a single mom too and can relate to you its not easy.i am a fahionista like you maybe we can hook up sometimes am in ny too.
About your friend i have strong views about gays and am not going to bring any up but i feel so sorry for its such a short life
I totally agree with jumy bobby its a free world and and shes entitled to her own opinion which doesnt have to be palatable by you or anyone

I read her comment and dont see any big deal about it she didnt say she doesnt feel sorry for ALL aids patient she said she doesnt feel sorry for aristo babes and gays you cant force anyone to feel sorry for anyone
Its you that should read stuff well before bringing up her husband into this

Lets keep things civil we are all adults you shouldve made your point before casting aspcertions

Now thats my 2 cents
