“The Talk” Host Sheryl Underwood Opens Up about Being Raped & Having to Negotiate for her Life | Watch



Comedian Sheryl Underwood, one of the co-hosts on daytime talk show “The Talk”, tearfully opened up about being raped and how she negotiated with the man who assaulted her.

She recounted her experience while the ladies were talking about Kim Kardashian recalling her robbery and assault in Paris, where she (Kim) mentally prepared herself to be raped.

Sheryl said:

I looked at the footage with Kim and in her retelling the story, she looks traumatised. But for her to go through that process and try to think her way through it, I remember having a ‘this is it’ moment when I was raped, I just kept thinking, ‘This ain’t it. I am not going to die today. I refuse to die today. It’s not going down like this.’

So the only thing I thought was: ‘What do I do to survive?’ And I start talking to the guy and I said, ‘Don’t do this-this way. Whatever you’re going to do, finish what you’re doing — don’t kill me. And don’t take my ID. They’ll find you,’ I really want women to understand. Don’t ever let anybody take your power away from you. Don’t ever let anybody decide for you.

    99% of women have experienced rape to some degree. whether you say no to a boyfriend or husband who continues on with out actually paying attention to your no: its rape.
    Ladies, we have a duty to help raise new generation men who respect women.
    May God help us.
