In college, men often called me a “cockblocker.” That’s because I wouldn’t let them put their paws on my drunk friends. We’d be stumbling, I mean dancing, on the dancefloor and a slimy dude would come from behind and grind on one of my girlfriends. My friend would stare at me like a deer in headlights and mouth “help me!” And so, I did.
That’s what girlfriends are supposed to do – help gal pals when in danger, in pain and if self-destructing. Katy Perry knows a thing or two about this. One of her dear friends is Rihanna, and she had this to say to Elle UK about her BBF’s wild ways:
“I love her [Rihanna] and every time I see her, I’m reminded of the light that she has,” Katy says. “There’s a lot of dark in this business,” Perry continued. “I know a lot of people out there with the most detrimental entourages — they are the root of their demise. It’s really unfortunate but you can’t save these people. My days of celebrity saving are over.”
So, Katy Perry is most certainly not a “cockblocker.” She no longer suffers from the Save a Ho complex that I once suffered from. Once Chris Brown and Riri reunited, Katy kept her distance. And I get it. What else was she supposed to do? Rihanna was going to do what she wanted. We all do what we want, as women, as friends.
And sometimes the girlfriend that mouths “save me” just doesn’t want to be saved.
Cameron Diaz and Gwyneth Paltrow
Cammie and Gwynie have been everywhere lately. And Gwyneth definitely believes in helping her girlfriends out. One of her infamous quotes is: "The best way to mend a broken heart is time and girlfriends." Cameron also helps out her gal pal. In an interview, Paltrow admitted to having a hairy pepa. She says, "Every time I have a bikini wax, Cameron Diaz holds me down." Now that's a serious BFF. Photo Credit: Google Images
