Blind Item #12

I'm not sure this is exactly how it is supposed to work. This permanent A++ list athlete pays someone to "witness" on her behalf. Apparently everyone in the family does the same thing.

SerenA Williams?

MDAnderson said...

Has to be Serena. She is a jehovah Witness.

sandybrook said...

Billie Jean King or Martina Navratolova?

MDAnderson said...

I don’t expect her and Venus to knock on people’s door.

MyDogSmiles said...

I'm still not convinced that Serena is "female."

Troy Dyer said...

+1 Serena
GOAT don’t need to knock on doors

J said...

I'd like to witness her playing the 250th-ranked male tennis player.

Organized religions get pretty weird sometimes.

Serena

@dog - me neither....

Sd Auntie said...

the Queen of Tennis and Olympia's mama. she should have a birthday party for her lil one.

Substance D said...

Gargoyles like Serena are usually on churches, not in them.

Me Again said...

Prince used to go door to door and witness when we lived in Minneapolis. It was weird to open the door and see him with his brochures.

And Substance D.... stop being so nasty.

Mean Man said...

Prince was a Jehovah's Witness. He personally witnessed. The Williams women also don't do anything regarding flag ceremonies, besides the JW doctrine to not salute the flag. I think the Williams Family just doesn't want to adhere to the JW tenets while avoiding being de-fellowshipped from the JW community.

J said...

I have distant cousins raised in a Jehovah's Witness home. Their parents discouraged them from getting educations, forbade them from going to college. Now they're in their 60s, wonderful, kind people, and they are painfully aware of the impact of their parents' harmful, hateful policies against learning.

Fuck Jehovah's Witnesses.

Louzianagal86 said...

It’s Serena... You are required to go out into the community and “witness” to people. So she doesn’t do it herself so she hires someone... not a JW here, just know a few who are...

J said...

Although... last time they knocked on my door one of the three was a very hot mid-40s lady. Should have asked whether she could witness with me privately.

Aquagirl said...

I’m with you J. I met a group of JW’s casually (on a boat) a few years ago. One woman actually bought her laptop on the boat (which I thought was I’ll-advised because we knew we might get wet). It had an orange cover & I joked that it matched our orange life jackets. Halfway through the trip, she started telling my friend and I that they were JW’s and wanted to give us a power point presentation. Which she proceeded to do even though we weren’t interested. There were 6 of them (3 couples) and they were so annoying. I just wanted to enjoy the sunset on the Hudson River & she just kept trying to recruit us. Creepy.

I have to admit, if Serena Williams showed up at my door wanting to talk to me about her religion, I would invite her in and hear her pitch.

Jesus Christ

Guesser said...

Jehovah's witnesses are supposed to do it themselves,the Jacksons did,Prince did. My neighbors used to hand us anti Catholic literature,knowing we were Catholic.

Honey Bunny said...

Serena W.
And she still looks better then anything that you call a date @J.

J said...

How nice, Honey Bunny.

As they say, looks are in the eye of the beholder, so I won't comment on the veracity of your (typically) unsubstantiated claim.

But I will say that I would never date anyone who believed in a creed which discouraged education. On the contrary, I would encourage any relevant child-protection agencies to monitor Serena's family to ensure children either get proper schooling or are removed to a safer home post-haste.

Brayson87 said...

Why do people watch tennis again? I mean it's not as bad as watching golf but it still makes baseball seem exciting. I would replace all tennis matches with...beach volleyball. That is the ruling.

Brayson87 said...

@J, I would argue that NPR is often pro-education, or was it just pro-teacher? I'm pro-teacher when they're in their 20's.

Plus side of hating book learnin', no student loans to worry about.

J said...

Yeah, we don't have to worry about Serena's kids doin' any of that fancy multivariate math. Whether they're inclined that way or not, mommy will make sure to keep the books out of their reach... in the Lord's name.

J said...

I dated a kindergarten teacher some years ago. She was great (fantastic, lovely person), but I couldn't handle the way she talked to me (and everyone, really) very slowly and simply... hard for her to leave her working habits at the school.



Gen-z99 said...

Why cause she black?cause we all know they aren't females lol

Gen-z99 said...

I pray to god that child don't inherit those god awful Bantu features.

Dusty said...

Prince used to go door-to-door to witness, I don’t see any reason why Serena can’t.

JW... gotta love em.
One of them caught me running out the door, a couple weeks ago. She was at the back door. Talk about balls!! Stomping thru my back yard!! what if I had a Rottweiler?

Anyway...she goes, "Do you think suffering is forever? Yes, No, or Not Sure?"
I stared at this creature in disbelief.
Does she realize how dangerous it could be.... Knocking on a strange back door with a rude question??

Astra Worthington said...

GenZ, probably because Serena literally looks like a man? Nothing to do with race, I’m sure everyone has seen manly white, Hispanic, etc, women. I think she’s probably spent her life doping or “performance enhancing”, as they ALL do it, every single one of them. Reminds me of Joanie Laurel/Chyna from WWE, who became rather less manly when she stopped the steroids. Maybe the same would happen to Serena if she stopped competing.

J, that’s so funny you say that. I know someone that used to work with teachers and my god, he cannot stand them! Said they were the most incompetent bunch of people he’d ever dealt with. Couldn’t fill out their forms, couldn’t figure out the math, formulas, etc, for the various entitlements, benefits and paychecks. He said they were all highly educated but absolutely incapable in real life. He also said they spoke to him like he was a child and did that to everyone. They had very messy and drama filled personal lives, as well. He always says “those who can’t do, teach”, because that’s what he saw. They were pretty capable at their jobs though. He said he’d never date one either lol.

J said...

No, Susan was very capable, Astra. She just paced her speech noticeably slowly and once I noticed it I couldn't un-notice. As a person I have nothing but praise for her. She's great.

rabbit said...

I used to pray to a different god that Prince would knock on my door. No, I got the guy from the temple. He wore a gigantic belt buckle, and had all kinds of worthless bling. He was everywhere.

Astra Worthington said...

That’s good, J. I’m glad there’s at least one teacher that has it together, out there! Lol you would have to be a certain kind of person to be able to deal with other people’s kids all day, every day, especially nowadays. Basically I’m glad someone is willing to do that job.

Pute Shute said...

Tommy Sotomayor calls them machines...Tell em Kyle Reese: "Listen, that Terminator is out there. It cant be bargained with, it can't be reasoned with and it will never stop until your are dead!"

Mary said...

JW’s are sick and twisted.

Aquagirl said...

@Rabbit: Love your comment but wondering if you could clarify—did you live in Minneapolis @ the time so that it was at least a possibility that Prince would show up? ❤️

Aquagirl said...

I’m with you @ Mary. Idk if you saw my comment above. I was just having an enjoyable evening with my friend. The woman next to us was with her 4 little granddaughters, just enjoying nature. We were on a sloop on the Hudson River in NY State that was donated by Woody Guthrie (it only holds about 12 people) and we were assaulted by this bitch with her power point presentation who then asked us a million times to come for lunch (they lived in an upstate NY location) and kept asking for our email addresses. So unacceptable.

If I was a slave owner in a south, I would have purchased an 18 year old Mike Tyson and the Williams Sisters and I would get rich selling their offspring as breeding stock for hard labor. Then I would sit back in my wicker rocking chair, on the porch of my splendid antebellum mansion's front porch, smoking a fine Virginia cheroot and drinking gin and tonics for my malaria you see, solely for medicinal hygene. As the liquor filled my veins with fire, I'd contemplate the coming civil war with rage at the insolence of those damn yankees for trying to ruin my perfect and beautiful life.

Red Velvet Boots said...

I have a friend who is a JW. I've attended one of their services and JW convention of some sort. It's a very strange religion.

Brayson87 said...

@J, I went through a teacher phase years ago, they're generally wonderful women who dig witty guys. Very playful and talented with their hands. Usually they're single because they want to be, or there's a reason. Like one I dated one who looked like a certain actress. What I didn't realize was that the teacher was also copying the mannerisms and clothing style of the biggest tv character the actress had ever played. I'd never seen the show. Years later I did and was like WTF kind of sh!t was that about?

J said...

Lol Brayson. People are nuts.

Freebird said...

I’d have told her where to shove it. Ain’t nobody ruining a sunset boat trip like that for me!

Kimberlini said...

There's a LDS church close to where I live and their people go door to door quite frequently. A few years ago, they came around the day after a big event was supposed to happen. I opened the door and said, "I thought you people were supposed to be raptured!" I loved seeing their jaws drop. May not have been the right religion but it still worked.

Melissa MM said...

A few years ago I worked in a place where half of the people are JW. Nice and friendly people with little to no education. No birthdays, christmas,etc; and apparently they have arranged marriages.
I befriended a guy who had an eye problem, I even offered to help him find a clinic and pay the doctor's bill but he refused.
I think they don't believe in medical treatments, either.
