Interview With a Bastard - Part 3
The following is an excerpt from Avah LaReaux's interview with Channel Six reporter Renee Toliver
I know you've been speaking with Marcus. I told myself I would take your decision to interview him first in stride, but I must admit I'm confused by your decision. This entire situation came about because Marcus felt like he was "wronged". Oh, please. Spare me. Had the player been on his game, none of this would have ever happened. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying we didn't have an actual relationship or that I don't care about Marcus because I do. But what you and all your colleagues need to understand is that he is not the helpless victim he wants to make himself out to be. We were together a lot longer than we've been apart and quite honestly, his foul attitude toward me is unwarranted. But why am I surprised? Typical Marcus, right? And I'm sure he tried to put all of this on me didn't he? You can be honest with me, honey, I'm no threat, really. I will tell you this, never find yourself alone with him. What? We are taping?

Interview With a Bastard - Part 2
The following is the continuation of Avah LaReaux's interview with former Charlotte Storm outside linebacker, Marcus Clayton.
I'm sure you are probably thinking the worse of me, right? You are probably saying, "how could you have been raised in a Christian home and still turn your back on your religious teachings?" That's the point. I grew up thinking that Christianity and religion were the same. It wasn't until I was grown and had exhausted all those things that I had been so religious about that I realized I didn't have a relationship. Had I been baptized? Yes. Had I been faithful in church and in private? Yes, and that still wasn't enough once I reached the NFL. All the praying and reading didn't matter if I didn't believe. And believing meant nothing if I didn't know what to believe. Was God loving and wanted the best for me or was He just waiting until I messed up to throw my mistakes in my face, punish me, and tell me it was my fault. One thing I did know was He couldn't be both.
Anyway, I digress. What was the question again?
