“I was raped almost 35 years ago,” Huger revealed to Page Six, and she is now fighting against what she calls an “alarming” suicide rate among sexual assault victims. “The fact that I survived is part of my reality and I’m hoping that message resonates with the viewers,” she said. In what she describes as “a typical date that went totally off the rails,” the mom of two, now 54, isn’t hiding what happened to her, she’s vocalizing it on national television with a purpose.

“I am put in a very wonderful position to show that when adversity comes your way it doesn’t stop you, it can propel you,” she said of her platform as a Bravo fixture. “It is my responsibility to be real. I have no shame and I carry no burden because of what happened.”

 However, the name of her attacker is something she chooses not to disclose.  “I will never reveal his name, he has passed on,” she explained. “[But] I can say he was a public figure.”

“If he were alive today it might be a different story,” she said. “I’d like to have it out with him. But I forgave him a long time ago, that is why I lead I life I do today, forgiveness is a part of it.” Huger’s story will be told on Sunday night’s “RHOP” episode where Bravo cameras rolled as she received the ambassador award from Promoting Awareness | Victim Empowerment (PAVE), a non-profit organization that works to prevent sexual violence through education. She has worked with the group for three years, and said she “knew she needed to be a part of it” after attending a fundraiser that focused on teaching consent to middle school and high school students.

“For me personally as a survivor, I felt I had the responsibility to do whatever I could do to prevent another child from choosing death to end their suffering,” she explained. “If hearing my story could save one life it is well worth it, and I will do it again and again.”

Other PAVE honorees in past years have included Lady Gaga and Dr. Jill Biden. Huger was honored along with CNN’s Don Lemon in 2016.

 “I’m humbled for my name to be spoken in the same sentence,” she said “We’re champions of shattering the silence of sexual abuse,” she said, referring to the fact that many sexual assaults — like her own — go unreported.

I have been taking up for my sister neffe for years in return to be shitted on because her husband didn’t like me all because I spoke the truth ! This put a dent in our relationship for good I believe but that never stopped me from having her back . Now this new Situation is not only difficult but it’s sickening! @therealneffeteria how can u tell @breannabanks not to speak to me when I’m the one who supported her and gave her a roof over her head her whole pregnancy? (And I ain’t talking about the house Keyshia Cole baught) a brand new 3 story million dollar home ! Neffe when bree told u she was pregnant you threatened to come over and kick her down the stairs . Only reason you didn’t pull up is because I had that 9mm ready for whoever! Its crazy that this family is full of deceit,jealousy and betrayal! For Jesus sake. My niece is living with my Ex boyfriend . A man that you don’t even know personally, that’s not out of line to you? What normal person would be ok with this?

Bill Cosby Says Rape Allegations Could Just Be An Act Of Racism

bill cosby

Daughter of Bill Cosby says her father ‘is not abusive, violent or a rapist’ & that the accusations are “harsh and hurtful” and have been “carelessly repeated as truth.”

Bill Cosby said the sexual allegations launched against him could be due to racism during an interview Monday as the legendary comedian prepares for his sexual assault trial next month.

L.A. Reid has been accused of sexual harassment by a female assistant at Epic Records.

 “L.A.” Reid or Antonio Marquis Reid, as many know him by was just reported a few days ago of leaving his post as chairman of Epic Records. The veteran executive joined the Sony Music label in July 2011. During his six-year run, Reid signed such hit acts as Meghan Trainor, Future, Travis Scott, Fifth Harmony, and DJ Khaled, the latter of whom currently has the No. 1 song in the U.S. with “I’m the One.” He also brought Mariah Carey back into the Sony fold, after having signed the singer at his previous position as chief executive of Island Def Jam.

It is unclear what Reid’s next move will be, though he is an executive producer on the scripted drama “Cotton Club.” Reps for the label and for Sony Music would not comment.

For those who don’t know, Reid has been a large figure in the music industry. Reid got his start as a drummer, playing with R&B band The Deele, formed in his native Cincinnati, during the early ’80s. He later headed to Atlanta, where, in 1989, Reid and Deele bandmate Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds formed LaFace Records, a joint venture with Arista Records, and launched the careers of Usher, TLC, and Pink. In 2000, Arista absorbed LaFace and Reid became its new CEO.

He has seen some criticism along the way in the music industry, for being a big spender and now he faces yet another issue behind his reputable name.

Reports state that the reason for his abrupt departure from the label has come to light.
