The LisaRaye McCoy-Misick & Michael Misick soap opera continues. The fairytale is definitely over for the pair who had a Grace Kelly style whirlwind romance.
The romance had started beautifully. Three months after meeting LisaRaye, who appeared in the 2003 sitcom "All of Us," Misick popped the question with a 10-carat diamond ring. Their 2006 wedding at the exclusive Amanyara resort featured an orchid-covered altar and a sugar-spun horse and carriage with miniatures of the couple inside. Vivica Fox and LisaRaye's half-sister, Da Brat, were in the bridal party, and Misick paid $4,000 just to ship her wedding dress there, saying, "I want to give her everything she wants." The couple honeymooned in Bali, which we guess is where you go when you live in Turks and Caicos.
The couple made a social splash in New York as sexy LisaRaye played the role of first lady and Misick, just 41, hugely boosted tourism on the pristine 40-island cluster, where Keith Richards and Bruce Willis have homes along the world's third-biggest barrier reef.
But the marriage deteriorated quickly amidst charges of infidelity. LisaRaye was accused of having an affair with former Miami Heat point guard Gary Payton, who separated from his wife this week. And Misick allowed BET veejay Rocsi to hold court in the mansion while LisaRaye was away, angering his wife.
Payton's spokesman denied it, and BET wouldn't comment on Rocsi.
A friend of the prime minister told us: "LisaRaye is nothing more than a gold digger. She wants a cash settlement upwards of several million dollars."
Jetter shot back: "That's what she should be doing. She deserves spousal support. She hasn't been going on auditions and things, so she devoted her time to him and hasn't been working as much. It's not like she's coming in like Rocsi, just being on BET."
Oh, no she didn't!
According to a very reliable source, the reason behind LisaRaye’s shocking public meltdown last week was not because her husband, Turks & Caicos Premier Michael Misick, was tapping a much younger chick than herself. It turns out the real reason was LisaRaye found out Misick had hired a private investigator to tail her while she partied it up on the arms of a much younger man here in the states. Apparently, the private investigator collected all the evidence the Premier needed to prove LisaRaye was an adulterer. For LisaRaye this meant two things: she will lose her coveted “First Lady” title (to Rocsi, no less) and her days of raiding the Island coffers to finance her extravagant lifestyle were over. source
The First Lady of Turks and Caicos LisaRaye was spotted at LAX airport. Watch a news report from the Turks and Caicos islands to see a distraught LisaRaye in tears after the incident. The women of Turks and Caicos have also united against the First Lady and said they don't like how she's talking about the Premier to the press. There were rumors of a divorce at the beginning of the couple's marriage.
*Just months into her new marriage LisaRaye had to start dodging rumors about her wedded bliss. The actress and First Lady of the Turks and Ciacos Islands, is taking the negative attention in stride and chalking it up to celebrity, all while denying the rumors the she and new hubby, the Honorable Michael Misick, are having trouble.
Rumors recently surfaced last month that the starlet and the Premiere were headed toward splitsville, built on the grumblings that Misick had fathered a child of a Miami woman and that the people of the islands were not particularly fond of their new First Lady LisaRaye. But the actress says it's all false.
"There were some rumors going around that Michael and I were getting a divorce and that the Islanders were saying they don't see me down there a lot," she reviewed. "I don't really know how these accusations came out that Michael and I are getting a divorce. Especially when I am still in my honeymoon stages right now. It's just not true. I've had a good handful of people calling me.
Being in the business, I've grown to have a thick skin. And I know that when you're hot, people want to talk about you - so I take it and reverse it and say, 'Ok, if you think that my life is that interesting, that you want to talk about it or start gossip, then go ahead." source
