Baby shower drama isn’t exactly rare (anyone with “that aunt” knows this), but some kind of messiness expected to go down at Ray J’s baby shower. And I’m not talking about an accidental puddle that happened after an excited Ray J heard the word “shower.” I mean family drama between his sister Brandy and their mama Sonja Norwood, and his pregnant wife Princess Love. According to TMZ, things are so rough between Princess, Brandy, and Sonja, that Brandy and Sonja skipped the baby shower.
Ray J and Princess haven’t always had the most secure relationship, and I’m sure that has made family tensions tight. So it shouldn’t be surprising that Brandy and Sonja fought with Princess Love at a gender reveal party that was held a day before the baby shower. Princess tweeted (and later deleted) something vague about cheating and not staying in a relationship just because you’re expecting a baby. Brandy and Sonja assumed she was talking about Ray J, and they reportedly demanded Princess apologize to him. Princess told them to mind their own business, and to worry about their own bad relationships. That pissed Brandy and Sonja off, and they refused to attend Ray J and Princess’ baby shower. Sources tell TMZ that Brandy and Sonja’s absence at the baby shower was absolutely because of the fight at the gender reveal.
The day after the baby shower, Princess posted several pictures to Instagram of the party. And here’s where the plot clots: Brandy went into the comments and did damage control by congratulating her sister-in-law and explaining why she wasn’t there. Although she probably didn’t plan for Princess to reply with such sass.
Brandy hasn’t responded, and my guess is she won’t, unless she’s also prepared to do battle with whatever alleged text messages Princess has been holding onto. My guess is those are some hate-filled text messages. I can only speak from personal experience, but I know my most devastating blows are crafted while arguing to myself in the car ride home from a fight. I have no idea what Brandy said, but if it were me, and I was that keyed up, I’d probably lead with: “And another thing: who in the fuck holds a baby shower the day after a gender reveal? At what 24-hour baby boutique am I supposed to shop for that?”
