Many people may have their own opinion about women who go after “successful” guys or wealthy men. Some people call those women ambitious, gold diggers and more. Lisa Raye sat down with Sister 2 Sister Magazine’s Jamie Foster Brown to describe what a gold digger is to her:

Jamie: What’s the biggest misconception about you?

LisaRaye:That I’m a gold digger.

Jamie: That ain’t no misconception. What the hell is that? You just said that you want a billionaire. What’s the difference?

LisaRaye: Why is that considered a gold digger? Do we say that when the White girls say that? Do we say that when we take our kids to the Ivy League school and they go to bar mitzvahs and all of those social events? But when we’re Black, they got to be, “She’s a gold digger.” How is that?

I think that a gold digger is a woman that wants to be taken care of, but she’s not bringing anything to the table. She just wants you to do what you’re supposed to do for her and she’s not feeling she needs to do anything.

She also added:

I don’t feel that that’s right because, to me, as much as you want to receive you have to learn how to give as well and appreciate that gift of being able to give. That’s a blessing to be able to do that. So if you are being blessed by having this person in your life and vice versa, then you both are going to succeed together because he’s evenly yoked with yo

Lisa Raye commented on the topic in an earlier interview as well. According to NecoleB*tchie she said:

People think that I’m a gold digger. I’m digging for platinum. I can’t do nothing with a Burger King man unless he own about 20 or 30 of them.”

She also told Essence that same year, after her divorce to Michael Misick:

 I’ve never dated anybody who didn’t have money. I was my own millionaire when I got married … Honey, I was digging for gold in high school; I’m past platinum now! [Laughs] I hope your mama told you to get with someone who can take care of himself so he can take care of you and what you’re bringing to the table. That should be the definition of digging.”
