In very weird and strange news today, the NYPost is reporting that Tila Tequila is claiming to be dating Ray J. Which is interesting because Ray J is suppose to be dating Cocktail, the winner of his reality show – For the Love of Ray J.
According to the Post, Tila posted a blog at 3:45 a.m. this morning she stating “my baby is Ray J…..and no man has made me feel so loved and so happy in such a long time.” She was apparently trying to clear up “rumors” about people saying she is dating Diddy and Tyrese (even though no one has heard any of these “rumors”)
“Tila Tequila is officially dating Ray J!” she said “I think we make the cutest couple…. don’t you?”
Ray J added fuel to this rumor by posting the following on his twitter today – “@officialTila love u more!!!! you my future wifey.” Which is even more interesting because he posted the following to Cocktail on Friday via his Twitter – “@cocktailvh1 what’s up baby.. You know I wish u were here with me.”
So are Ray J and Tila really dating, or just being attention whores? And How does Cocktail feel about this? Only time will tell.
Update: Cocktail just posted the following on her Twitter – “Tila Tequila is doin waaaayyy too much! She better fall back on that bullshit! She wish she had my man. Ray is all mine!”
Lasting longer that most reality relationships, seems like Cocktail and Ray J are still going strong as a couple. The above photo was reportedly taken last week.
It will be interesting to see how this all plays out as VH1 has greenlighted a 2nd season of For The Love of Ray J. The show got some very good ratings. Cocktail talks about her feelings towards Ray J and being in love with him in her VH1 interview below –
What has your communication with Ray been like since the show wrapped?
If we don’t talk everyday, we at least text each other. We make a point to see each other at least twice a month. That’s just what our schedules can fit. He’s on the road and doing stuff, and lately, I’ve been on the road as well, with appearances and whatnot.
What’s the status of your relationship? Is he your boyfriend?
Yeah. He’s my boyfriend, and the fact that I’m not seeing my boyfriend as much as I’d like to is different from what I’m used to. I would love to see him everyday and have him come home to me every night. But that’s not what it is, and I have to take it for what it is. I’m patiently learning his lifestyle. I expected this, but I’m sad now that I’m going through it. But it just makes the times I see him even more special.
Do you love him?
I do. I’m in love with him. I’m head over heels. When I tell my girlfriends that they’re like, “Are you kidding me?” No, this is the only man in my life right now that can say anything to me and make me fall into tears. It takes someone that I care about to go through with that emotion and show my vulnerability. I know I cried every three seconds on the show, but I care about him so much that he can say anything, the sweetest thing, the most horrible thing, and I burst into tears. I’m so overwhelmed.
What did you think when that was turned on you and your participation on the Bad Girls Club became a plot point? Did you think you’d be eliminated?
No. The girls were kind of talking about it early on. When I entered the house, they told me I looked familiar. I kind of just drew the attention away from myself. I knew then that I would have to address it to Ray at some point, but I didn’t early on because I didn’t want him to think I was there for the wrong reasons. I knew that if nobody said anything and I was the first to later on, maybe he’d get to know me a little bit and not eliminate me because I was on another reality show. I thought I could at least get to the point where he gave me the benefit of the doubt.
That was good strategy, too. Any thoughts on being portrayed as a gold-digger on Bad Girls Club and then ending up with a guy who makes considerable bank on this show?
The whole gold-digger thing was honestly something I said to better my chances of getting on a show that I thought had a different purpose. I thought that by saying I was something I wasn’t, it would give me an image. I thought it was going to make me more of an interesting character for people to watch. That’s the only reason I said things like that. If I was really like that, I would come out in things that I say or my personality. I’m a social worker. I’m not into that. If you look back on my roster of ex-boyfriends, none of them are wealthy. None are famous. Nothing. I’m a down-to-earth type of gal. I don’t date men for their status. If people judge me on saying I’m a gold-digger three years ago, so be it. But it was for entertainment purposes. I wanted to be on TV. And it wasn’t even like I was a main character. I was a replacement, and I was boring.
