{blackbabes} Serena Williams: Young boys need domestic abuse education

 

NEW YORK — Serena Williams says the conversation about stopping domestic abuse shouldn't just centre around women, but men as well.

The tennis superstar says education about domestic abuse should start when men are young boys.

"I think expanding the conversation to men and expanding the conversation to young boys, it's so important," she said in an interview on Wednesday.

"This is a human rights issue. We should all be treated the same. We should be treated equal. With domestic abuse, it doesn't care what colour you are, what background you're from," she continued.

"It's important to get the message out there — to our young men, to our boys, to our daughters — to let that new generation, and let the generation now know that, let's stop this. Let's change this. Let's create a better us."

The 23-time Grand Slam singles champion is the ambassador for the Allstate Foundation Purple Purse initiative, which aims to help stop domestic abuse and what it calls the financial abuse that can accompany such relationships.

Williams says being the mother of an infant daughter makes the issue more important to her.

"This could be something that my daughter could face and that's not cool," she said at a Purple Purse event. "I want her to know that she can always talk to me, and talk to other people. That maybe she doesn't have a voice, maybe she can't use her voice, but we can be her voice, we can support her in so many different ways," Williams said.

Williams was pregnant with 1-year-old Olympia Ohanian when she won the Australian Open in January 2017. She returned to Grand Slam play last month at the French Open but had to withdraw after reaching the fourth round due to a pectoral chest injury.

Williams says she anticipates being healthy for next month's Wimbledon tournament.

"Oh that's a plan, absolutely, absolutely, and I've been working toward it," she said.

She also spoke about her father, Richard Williams, and his upcoming induction into the American Tennis Association's Hall of Fame. Williams coached Serena and her fellow champion sister, Venus, from when they were children until they were winning titles as adults.

"That's really wonderful and I know he is really excited about that and I am, too," she said. "I was just with him yesterday and we talked about it. It was great."

{blackbabes} Venus Williams and ex-Giant get flirty on-air

 

Don't expect Rashad Jennings to following in Jesse Palmer's footsteps as the next "Bachelor."

During an interview Tuesday on "Access Hollywood Live," the former Giants running back said romancing 30 women at once will never apply to his dating playbook.

"I couldn't do it, I really couldn't because I would change the show," Jennings, 33, said of the long-running ABC reality series. "Honestly I wouldn't give the audience what they would want to see. I could not be kissing 30 different girls at the same time."

He later added: "They're having good fun, but at the end of the day, I believe personally — and it's just my personal convictions — I don't care if we're talking about proposals, big weddings. I don't care if it's an extravagant wedding that cost millions of dollars, I don't care if it's one knee and a $50 ring, the proposal means nothing if it's not built on something solid. I don't think I'm going to have enough time to build that and what I want."

Though Jennings won't be handing out roses to ladies in waiting anytime soon, Venus Williams gave the one-time "Dancing with the Stars" champ a ringing endorsement, as she listened to the discussion ahead of her own "Access" interview.

"It sounds like he doesn't want to, but it sounds like if he did it would be so entertaining. I would definitely tune in," Williams, 38, said via satellite. "But honestly, he is really good in that seat. I was enjoying every moment."

Following Jennings and Williams' playful exchange during the Q&A, host Kit Hoover suggested the athletic pair swap numbers.

"Maybe we want to exchange some [phone numbers] … two single people?" Hoover said. "Venus, I don't know if you felt it, but I felt it! I felt some heat."

Jennings later quipped, "I'm catching what you're serving."

Williams was last linked to Nicholas Hammond earlier this spring.
