On Friday, listeners of The Breakfast Club were drawn into the melodrama of DJ Envy and his wife after his co-host Charlamagne made him “The Donkey Of The Day” for not being at his best at work over the last couple of weeks. Envy finally fessed up and revealed that it had everything to do with issues he was having in his marriage and him not treating his wife the way he should. He then called her on air.
Now, the catcher is that the entire incident was probably filmed for an episode of Housewives of New Jersey. Envy’s wife has been added to the new season which is sure to bring in a whole new demographic to the show and spice things up a bit, however, it does not take away from what Envy said about his wife which pulled at listener’s heartstrings. He spoke up for a lot of men in long-term relationships when he said:
“You know I’ve been with [my wife] for 18 years and sometimes you don’t treat the person that you’ve been with well, You treat them like they are always there and it has been a point where I treated my wife like s—. You know, just the small things you don’t do anymore.
Its not a problem [with her], its me. I’ve been with wifey for a long time, since high school.
At first, things are great and you do what you are supposed to do as a man to keep that relationship going, and then it gets to a point where your wifey is your right arm. When it’s there, you use it, and you don’t really appreciate it like you should until something happens or you get into a situation where you hurt that right arm and it’s like, “Damn! I almost lost my right arm.” It’s one of those things where you don’t appreciate the person the same and you don’t do things to make them feel special like you should.
I don’t care who says anything at this point, the only important thing is getting my family back to where it needs to be and getting wifey to understand that I appreciate her and I love her.
When you start making money, instead of saying, ‘I’m sorry’ and doing those good things, you buy things. Instead of me being there and telling her, ‘Baby, you look good’, and ‘Let’s go on a date’, it’s ‘Here is this Birkin bag,’ Instead of saying, ‘Lets go do spontaneous stuff like we used to do’ and make her feel appreciated, its like, ‘Here are these Christian Louboutin shoes’ and you see a smile and think you’re doing good but you are digging a deeper hole. When she’s out, she gets compliments in the malls whether she goes to lunch and that’s not you.
The reason I am saying something is because I don’t care what people say or how I look, the only thing that is important is that she understands that she is my queen.
You always think you can buy her something to fix it, and that’s what I thought, but there are not enough Birkin bags, cars, jewelry, watches, or shoes in the world that can fix being true or being honest.”
