chris-brown-karrueche-tran-thatgrapejuiceIf you’re going to try and tell your side, I’m guessing if you can’t get on Oprah’s couch her network is the next best place. So, it’s not hard to understand why Tran chose that outlet to give her first interview since finding out that her on-again, off-again lover for the past four years, was the father of a 9-month-old via social media.

Within  minutes of stepping into Karruehe’s home Iyanla asked what her purpose was for doing the interview. Her response, “I want to be able to clear it up and tell my story—my side,” but did she really? Can she or should she ever really try to make the public understand her story? Does she even know where she’s at in her story? Seems all this does is open her up to more public scrutiny, they’ll never truly know her or all the different facets that is, was or will be their relationship.

Although we’re not quite sure if she met her objective for sitting down with Iyanla Vanzant, here is what little we did learn about their tumultuous relationship after her #FixMyLife sit down:

“I wanted to love him. That’s what he needs, love,” said Tran.

She wanted to be the Beauty to his Beast but unlike the fairytale she got caught up and unfortunately there was no saving him. If anything give her kudos for trying to go about it the right way. If we all just genuinely loved people (not saying she genuinely did or didn’t, but that agape love is something we need more of in this world) and although we know they’re only human (again, she said it!); being that he’s famous and she’s famous by association (according to Iyanla, wasn’t that slight shade?) to the public they’re treated like anything but. Sorry, but fame and celebrity dehumanizes people in our society.

However noble she tried to be by loving him, taking him to church, meditating and doing yoga, until he learns to love himself he won’t be able to accept or reciprocate her love and the same goes for her, she can’t love him until she first gives herself that same love.

“I was under the impression that it was a friend type of… not a friend, but not what it became to be. I knew… I didn’t want to believe it [because] I loved him.”

Ignorance is bliss…would they have lasted as long if she was honest with herself about his infidelity? She admits to knowing that Chris was still dealing with Rihanna but in her mind if she said it was something else, it became something else and she was completely okay with it.

“I was under the impression that it was a friend type of… not a friend, but not what it became to be. I knew… I didn’t want to believe it [because] I loved him.”

Love doesn’t make you do stupid things, denial, naiveté, ignorance now any combination of those will but love on the other hand would slap you across the forehead with understanding and make you ask, if they’re just friends why am I not joining them for these outings? It was all in her face, yet for some reason she kept holding on. Guess although she was left alone in the condo while he attended the basketball game with Rihanna, she was left alone in Chris Brown’s condo and for her that might have been enough to make her break away from reality.

It doesn’t seem the interview served her purpose but one thing we surely heard loud and clear, is that Karrueche Tran still loves Chris Brown and although right now, she’s saying there will be no reconciliation, if only he could change…she’d be all for it.
