There’s a quote that goes something like, “behind every great man, there is a great woman.” Well, I would like to introduce a new quote that I came up with, and it goes something like this: “Behind every washed up, bankrupt, ‘practice-loathing,’ ex-NBA-superstar, there is a woman named Tawanna (who tries to take all his loot!).”

World, Tawanna Iverson. Tawanna Iverson, meet the world. Now that you both have been acquainted, here’s a little more insight on the lovely lady. Tawanna has spent time in and out of the news (and wallet of ex-husband, Allen Iverson) recently for a number of different nonsensical reasons — however, her most recent rant just might take the cake (and by cake, I mean $40,000 of her ex’s non-existent money).

Uh, I don’t really even know what to say. I’m trying to think of some witty, light-hearted way to put it, but truthfully I’m drawing a blank. F*ck it, Tawanna Iverson claims Allen done gon’ ahead and kidnapped the kids! Wait…what!?

Tawanna claims that Allen asked for permission to take their 5 kids (ages between 3-16) on a quick respite to Charlotte, North Carolina, back in late May. The thing is, Iverson never returned the children. When Tawanna realized, “hey, I never got my kids back!,” she requested that Iverson meet up with her (bearing the kids) at a neutral site (a local Target). Are you f*cking kidding me?! WTF do you think this is Tawanna, craigslist? These are children we’re dealing with, not a used iPhone 4. You really couldn’t brainstorm a more efficient and protected place to pick up your effing offspring?? Target!?!? Target….

According to Tawanna, the kids have been held up in a Sheraton Hotel (in Georgia). Frankly, I can’t see that as a less fit home for these young whippersnappers when compared to the home of a woman who elected Target as the place (she felt was fitting) to pick up her “kidnapped” children.

Tawanna is “very concerned” because Allen is an alcoholic who drinks like a fish in front of her kids. Tawanna wants jail time for her ex-beau. I think Tawanna probably should’ve refrained from lending her children to him if this is how she really feels. It’s pretty evident that both these parents could use a little practice in the field. Practice? What are we talking about, Tawanna and Allen?

The Internet has made it possible to find pictures and videos of naked people doing basically anything you can imagine (and plenty of things you probably can’t), but there’s no comparing digital naughty bits to their real world equivalent.
