November 7 of this year will mark the 25th anniversary of THE announcement – when Earvin “Magic” Johnson revealed in a press conference that not only did he have HIV, but because of it he was retiring from the NBA.
Standing at Johnson’s side was his pregnant bride of only a few months, Cookie. And now, a quarter century later, she is finally sharing what it took for her to muster the strength to be there, and continue to stay with him.
But the moment from her upcoming memoir “Believing In Magic” that Big Tigger talked about in today’s Trending Topics is when she “relives the night her husband broke the devastating news to her and the humiliating ordeal she had to watch him go through in ts immediate aftermath.”
Including “the humiliating part” afterwards when Johnson locked himself in a room and called “the long list of women with whom he had been intimate, to inform them.”
“Believing In Magic” is due out Sept. 20.
