Does Wanting A Man With Millions Make You A Gold Digger?

Single Ladies star LisaRaye defines a real gold digger

Single Ladies leading star, LisaRaye McCoy is dishing out on the true meaning of a gold digger. The actress says there is nothing wrong to have the niceness things in life and even better, men who can afford those nice things. In a recent sit down with Sister 2 Sister Magazine, she calls herself, ‘a platinum digger’.

LisaRaye has always been tagged one of Hollywood’s most famous gold diggers but over the weekend, she sets the records right by breaking down the definition of the word to media hot, Jamie Foster Brown.

What’s the biggest misconception about you?That I’m a gold digger.

You just said that you want a billionaire. What’s the difference?

Why is that considered a gold digger? Do we say that when the White girls say that? Do we say that when we take our kids to the Ivy League school and they go to bar mitzvahs and all of those social events? But when we’re Black, they got to be, "She’s a gold digger." How is that?

What's the difference between a gold digger and wanting to have a better life?

I think that She just wants you to do what you’re supposed to do for her and she’s not feeling she needs to do anything.She also added:

"I don’t feel that that’s right because, to me, as much as you want to receive you have to learn how to give as well and appreciate that gift of being able to give. That’s a blessing to be able to do that. So if you are being blessed by having this person in your life and vice versa, then you both are going to succeed together because he’s evenly yoked with you."

Well, LisaRaye is right about one thing, she’s not a gold digger, she’s a platinum digger. Back in 2010, she told Vibe Magazine:

"People think that I’m a gold digger. I’m digging for platinum. I can’t do nothing with a Burger King man unless he own about 20 or 30 of them."

She also told Essence Magazine that same year, after her divorce to Michael Misick:

"I’ve never dated anybody who didn’t have money. I was my own millionaire when I got married … Honey, I was digging for gold in high school; I’m past platinum now! [Laughs] I hope your mama told you to get with someone who can take care of himself so he can take care of you and what you’re bringing to the table. That should be the definition of digging."

"Now, She ain’t saying she’s a gold digger, but she ain’t messing with no broke n*gga" i(n Kanye West voice).
