The drama continues between LisaRaye and her estranged husband, Michael Misik. In case you’ve missed the action, here’s the cliff notes version:
LisaRaye has returned to the island after a round of partying in Atlanta during So So Def Weekend and in New York during Lil Kim’s Birthday. It seems she left the island to get away from all the drama and heartache surrounding her husbands legal battles and rumored infidelities with BET’s 106 & Park host Rocsi. Upon her return, she was denied access to the main house and in turn drove her vehicle through the barricades. Once inside, Diamond…I mean LisaRaye confronted her cheating husband and some sort of physical altercation occurred where she is said to have bitten her husband and an innocent bystander. LisaRaye was arrested. Prior to all this taking place, LisaRaye was filmed arriving at the Turks & Caicos airport, where she gave a brief interview to a local news station. You could almost see the crazy in her eyes…she just didn’t look right.
Peep the video and her “official” statement about the altercation under the cut:
“It is with great sadness that I have to announce that my husband and I have separated.
Last night, Wednesday August 13, 2008, an attempt was made by and on behalf of my husband to first prevent my entry into our home and then, later, to make me leave our home by force.
It was necessary for me to receive medical treatment for injuries suffered and in relation to those injuries I shall continue to assist the police force with its enquiries.
Whilst it is my sincere wish to avoid unnecessary conflict, I shall not be intimidated, nor shall those individuals whose job it is to protect and represent me.
I ask that my privacy be respected in these difficult times and I believe that the people of the TCI will understand and support my wish to receive the necessary independent representation from the legal counsel of my choosing. I hope that, in time, the TCI government will come to share that view.
Although I have always been a supportive wife even in light of the very serious allegations currently pending against the Premier, there are limits even for me.
I continue to have the utmost respect for the people of the TCI who have always shown me kindness and support. I vow to continue my work amongst the people of Turks and Caicos Islands.
Until recently I had hoped that I would be able to continue to assist my husband during what will undoubtedly be difficult times ahead for him. I do not wish to have to add to his difficulties.”
First Lady of the Turks & Caicos Islands.
