We all know Meagan Good, and for those who are not familiar with this beautiful, talented, actress, I have provided a link from Yahoo Movies for you, if you would like to read a brief bio on her. It’s impressive! Like most of us were when we young and happy, we did a lot of not so classy things; however, we are not famous so our skeletons can safely remain trapped in our closets. Unfortunately, some of Good’s skeletons got out. Social Media, especially Jacky Jasper the King of obtaining celebrity dirt, whose website is Diaryofahollywoodstreetking.com by the way, has posted statements on their blogs pertaining to her being a former escort. Posts read that her clientele included rappers, athletes, dope-boys, and if the money was right, other women. In addition, some have alleged that she likes to party and sniff cocaine, and there are a couple of pictures posted of her on the internet looking “white boy” wasted that could most likely support that statement.
My first time of ever hearing about Devon Franklin was on Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday show. He was bright, handsome, and confident answering questions and sharing knowledge that he had acquired and placed in his book Produced by Faith. As Oprah listened for “Aha Moments,” I observed him and listened to some of his accomplished works. Franklin was in the entertainment business and was once an assistant to Will Smith. One of his biggest accomplishments; howver, is being a 7th Day Adventist Pastor.
With that being said, I was surprised to hear that Meagan Good was dating and then marrying Pastor Devon Franklin.
After watching pictures of the BET Awards show, I was honestly shocked to see how this Pastor’s wife was dressed. I was even more boggled that the Pastor allowed his wife to be viewed by an audience of this magnitude in such a revealing manner. The Franklins are an attractive couple and the need to get attention in this fashion caused somewhat of a stir. Comments were made on Social Media questioning Meagan’s outfit of choice.
Bossip.com has an exclusive on Meagan’s respond to those comments:
@adriannacolbert That’s the thing Girl- is that I don’t feel convicted about this at all .,my spirit is saddened that our people only know one way to think and process things.. I’m not any less holy because the dress I wore -I may not be who people think I should be -but I’m morphing into exactly who God wants me to be.. My excuse is never “I’m going to do me” and I don’t feel that I need to make an excuse or defend or what I wore .. I know I have a responsibility -and I’m working daily to fulfill the full potential of all God has created me to be.. A dialogue was started about my character, integrity, my walk with God and my Husband -simply based on a dress that I wore.., Of course I’m going to have a reaction to people saying negative things… It’s just sad.. Makes me sad not regretful.. My heart and spirit is always open to whatever my Father would want to share with me… And my spirit tells me to be exactly who I authentically am -because that’s what’s going to reach who I was authentically designed to touch.. people like me who are often misunderstood and told their cut of God’s promise -because they don’t look the role …when God doesn’t care about us “looking the role”..he is always cared about bringing us in -and us being whatever we need to be to bring Those left out in .. And it just makes me sad that us as Christians can’t see beyond our initial reaction and don’t seek God before the attack other brothers and sisters …and never think for one moment that: God knows what he’s doing and he uses everything for his glory .. and he has a plan for every specific situation.. I had intentions on anything .. Merely picked a dress I saw and loved … God knows my heart and that I didn’t do anything wrong .. And he will use even people’s thoughts to bring him glory – See more at: http://bossip.com/797822/sit-down-haters-meagan-good-claps-back-at-angry-black-church-folks-mad-at-her-bet-awards-boob-baring-blue-dress/2/#sthash.ARmO4S1F.dpuf
Ginger’s Thoughts – Meagan, your actions may have came from a spirit, but it certainly was not the Holy Spirit. Your Husband should teach you that women of God represent true beauty and confidence. They thoroughly understand that they were meticulously made by God and so the need to act “thirsty” for anything is removed. Personally, that dress proved to me that you are not ready to let go of your past lifestyle, and at the end of the day, your husband, Pastor or not, is only a man….
