Divorce looms for TCI Premier and First Lady Lisa Raye

Commentary as in the “opinion' of the Michael Misick and Lisa Raye divorce RUMOR by Anthony Hall

Alas, the premier of the Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI), Hon. Michael Misick, and Hollywood actress LisaRaye McCoy-Misick will not be living happily ever after. Because, just two years after their fairytale marriage (complete with Grace-Kelly tiara), they seem headed for divorce.

Clearly, for the people of the TCI, this is big news. But I fear prurient interest in what caused this marriage to become irretrievably broken down might overshadow what it portends for the leadership of our country – especially regarding its relevance to the unresolved allegations of rape and corruption against the Premier.

All the same, I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge the general assumption that our First Lady is leaving her husband for the same principled reason many Americans, especially self-respecting women, thought U.S. First Lady Hillary Clinton should have left her chronically unfaithful husband long ago…

However, I feel obliged to comment on this pending divorce for the same reason I felt obliged to defend First Lady LisaRaye in recent article against charges of bringing the TCI into ill-repute after an old photo of her, scantily clad, appeared on the cover of a men’s magazine. Namely, I feel it’s important to help fellow TCIslanders put this matter into perspective vis-à-vis the breakdown of good governance in our country.

It is no secret that many TCIslanders resented the fact that the Premier married an American woman. And I have no doubt that many will greet the end of their marriage with unbridled glee.
