Talk about a way to wake up this morning. Mike Tyson was on the Today Show this morning and he was supposed to talk about his new Broadway role (which is kinda odd, in itself). But instead, the former heavyweight champion, drug abuser and convicted rapist got all weird and talked about all the women he just “had” to sleep with and the fact that he was a “prostitute hunter.”
Tyson was attempting to describe his new and improved self, even going so far as to say he was a “wimp” and a vegan now. But when asked what brought on all the changes, Tyson said:
I just threw up the white flag. There was too many prison cells, too many jails, too many lawsuits, too many bankruptcies, too many women, too many venereal diseases, too many everything. I got tired. I really got tired of, you know, like every time a prostitute –- I would head back from a trip — I had to sleep with her. So I just said, ‘I’m going to live a different life.’
Say what??? For once, Ann Curry was at a loss for words.
But then, perhaps after seeing the shock on Curry’s face, he went on to say:
I’m sorry! I’m sorry! I was a prostitute hunter!
Yep, he said that. And yep, I’m sooo interested in seeing his Broadway debut because he just seems like such a changed man now. Right!
