From San Francisco Magazine:

Willie Brown looks even more like Smug Pepe the Frog than Donald Trump does

Who Needs Love When You’ve Got Willie Brown?

Lauren Smiley | Photo: Aya Brackett and Drew Altizer | November 28, 2013

Ten years a trophy girlfriend—but still willing to work!

Sonya Molodetskaya—Russian refugee, aspiring boutique owner, mostly absentee immigrant rights commissioner, and decade-long lady friend of ex-mayor Willie Brown—has a zebra pelt on her living room floor. … The collection includes the tan mink parka that she was wearing when she stepped off the plane at SFO at age 24, back in 1996, after her parents forced her to leave her social life (and boyfriend) in Moscow and reinvent herself as a Russian Jewish émigré in the Outer Sunset.

But hers is no typical immigrant tale, as evidenced by the tower of orange Hermès boxes in the closet, the shelves of stilettos, the 2011 Jaguar convertible in the garage across the street, and the giant black-and-white painting on the living room wall: Molodetskaya wearing a lacy bra and—what else?—a fur, mob-wife style. …

“I can’t live this life sober,” she says in a rich accent that rolls out like a blend of Moscow and Queens. She’s joking—sort of. …

As we sip wine from the cellar of Molodetskaya’s financial district loft, we finally arrive at the juicy topic: her arrangement with the famously philandering ex–California assembly speaker and two-term San Francisco mayor, who technically left City Hall in 2004 but is still widely considered a one-man shadow government. She almost always calls her companion “Willie Brown,” even to his face, as if he were yet another brand name in her closet. (“He doesn’t like when people call him Willie,” she says. “I don’t think he likes his name.”) At 79, Brown could be Molodetskaya’s father (she’s 41); in fact, he’s five years older than her father. Not that age has slowed him down. “He’s never really been faithful to anybody,” she says. “He was always a playboy. So did he change for me? I don’t think so.” …

Molodetskaya’s candor makes it clear that she doesn’t live in the same über-PC town as the rest of us—she lives in Willie’s world. After all, her boyfriend and benefactor is a man who, in his titular Sunday column in the Chronicle, name-drops his political cronies, roasts his foes, and openly states that all contractors lowball bids—or ought to. A man with a stable of children ranging four decades in age, the youngest of whom was conceived with a fundraising associate during his marriage to Blanche Brown (they are still married, but have been amicably separated for decades). A man who back in the ’90s dated Kamala Harris, then a deputy district attorney in Alameda County, currently the state’s attorney general. A man who now has one half of the Bay Bridge named after him.

… Brown rose from segregated Texas shoe shiner to self-made San Francisco kingpin, and Molodetskaya has a similar rags-to-riches tale, having climbed rapidly from refugee saleswoman to society doyenne. Admittedly, her rise was fueled mostly by the power of association with the city’s most famous living politician. But it was also a product of her own disarming and, dare I say it, sincere charm.

  1. When these “refugees” left Russia, in 1996, from what persecution, exactly, were they seeking refuge? Since arriving in San Francisco, twenty years ago, as a 24-year-old woman, has Willie’s current girlfriend spent a few years traveling in outer space, at nearly the speed of light, or is there some other, more mundane, explanation for why she now is reputedly a 41-year-old woman?

  2. Has she had any children? I just wonder what happens when he dies and she’s maybe 50.

    Steve noted that we used to have words like ‘adventuress’ which were useful but un-PC. I assume ‘kept woman’ suffered the same fate.

    I don't know if she has children, but she does not have any with Willie Brown.

    Willie Brown only has four children, three with his wife. His daughter Sydney was born in 2001.

  5. San Francisco has a sizable Russian and Ukrainian Jewish population, especially in a neighborhood called Richmond. Although they are being pushed out of the Richmond by an increasing number of Chinese immigrants. There is not as many Eastern Euro Jews there in 2016 as there were say in 1996.

    I eat at a mom & pop sandwich shop owned by a Ukrainian Jewish family, but they are not religious because they serve non kosher sandwiches that mix meat with cheese. Phenotype wise the family looks a lot like people from the Caucasus region, they have similar looking phenotypes as the Tsarnaevs.

    To that end here’s a story on BB King’s estate battle, 15 kids by 15 women but none of them maybe his biological kids because he’s had a low sperm count his whole life.

    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/features/bb-kings-estate-war-15-897351

    The year since then has been decidedly less peaceful. While neither of King’s two marriages resulted in children, he managed to leave behind a vast family: 15 kids from 15 women. If that family history weren’t complex enough, King’s authorized biographer Charles Sawyer wrote in his book, The Arrival of BB King, that doctors found the musician’s sperm count too low to conceive children. In 2015, Sawyer told The Guardian that he had given King the option to remove the reference and that King declined. Either way, King claimed 15 kids as his own — never disputing his paternity — and of the 11 who survive, many now are fighting with King’s appointed trustee over his estate, a fortune that family members tell THR could be worth between $30 million and $40 million when royalties, asset sales and rights are taken into account. Many of the kids point to a 2007 will and trust that they claim grant them generous allowances. But King’s longtime business manager, LaVerne Toney, who is now the legal trustee of King’s estate, asserts that she merely is following a 2014 trust, which names the children but doesn’t provide for them with specific monetary gifts. According to the trustee’s own legal filings in Nevada, King’s estate also is far smaller than the children allege: $5 million and change spread across a few Wells Fargo bank accounts. But the kids have assembled teams of lawyers to fight the estate’s guardians. The litigation could continue for years.

    $5 million seems far too low to be the true value of the BB King estate; I'd guess the trustee is lying.

    Even if people don't buy albums any more, I can't believe that no car company is ever going to use "Tired of Your Jive" or "The Thrill is Gone" or (more appropriately, perhaps) "Paying the Cost to be the Boss?"

    BB King is kind of interesting as a foil to Willie Brown, since his lyrics tended to be a one man War on Women and their various claims and demands and betrayals. But classic blues is from a world in which black relationships, at least in the common culture, involved an expectation of commitment that could then be failed, rather than no expectation of commitment at all.
    , @anonymous-antimarxist
    Maybe BB King's ex-wifes can re-coop some by having King's image be the face of those "Paternity???" and "Don't sign that birth certificate" billboards you see along the interstates that run through the ghetto.

    In fact BB King could appear along side his good buddy "President Cuckoo's Egg".

    , @anonymous-antimarxist
    Which again furthers my point.

    Many black women would love to claim prestigious paternity for their children if offered the chance and would easily opt for the sperm of the "talented 1%, hell very talented .1%" if given a chance.

    Instead of a life long criminal dindu nuffins ghetto lottery winner having 13 kids by 11 baby mamas and those baby momas each having a couple more bastards by another hoodlum, you could have a easily have a million baby mamas having a single child by lets say Denzel Washington, Tony Dungy, Neil Degrasse Tyson.....

    And that would dramatically and irreversibly improve the quality of the black gene pool without anywhere near the cost of funding prison space for the next generation of sociopaths.

    I have always had a soft spot for Willie. I enjoyed reading his opinion columns in the San Francisco Chronicle and I especially enjoyed his movie reviews.

    A co-worker's Russian Jewish cousin emigrated to the US and brought with him Russian painted lacquered boxes which he then sold for many thousands of dollars, paving his way for a new life here.
  11. “… Brown rose from segregated Texas shoe shiner”

    A profession he is still eminently suited for.

  12. Russians are white Africans. They like bling. They like shoving their wealth in people’s faces. It is no surprise that Russia is the only white country where the people willingly embraced communism rather than have it forced upon them (by the Russians, of course). If you lived in a country of Russian capitalists you would have been a communist, too.

    And given their love for and protection of guys like Willie Brown (and Bob Filner, Anthony Weiner, Elliot Spitzer, Bill Clinton, Neil Goldschmidt, Anthony Villaraigosa, and Gavin Newsome) until their sexual behavior was finally made fully public, Democrats will have to do a really, really, really good job explaining why I shouldn’t vote for Donald Trump because of his “misogyny.”

    A couple of points to quibble. First, Russians did not willingly embrace communism. That's why they had a major civil war. Second, those who forced it upon them weren't necessarily Russian.

    Also, you might have to change your narrative about Russians being the only whites to accept communism. Though it might not be communism in the Soviet sense, the sheep of Western Europe are embracing full subjugation as we speak. And unlike the Russians, the Western Europeans are being subjugated without the force of arms.

    It sounds right to me. Ed McMahon worked until two or three years before his death and he died broke, spent his money on ex-wives and kids.

    BB King was raised in segregated Mississippi and poorly educated. Even educated blacks spend money on their families and don't do well with investments. When half of your earnings go to taxes and you give money to 15 kids and dozens grandchildren and great-grandchildren, not much is left over.

    Look at the countless number of young athletes whose fortunes have been wiped out by spending on family and friends and far fewer children than BB King.

    Yeah yeah yeah, feel free to quibble. The Germans, as we all know, "embraced" Nazism despite the fact that the Nazis never won a majority, either. Not really the point. The point is that the communists were strong enough to win control of the country. That relied on having a large share of the population sympathetic to communism.

  23. fnn says:

    Long time Chicago Tribune Baltic correspondent Donald Day (sister of Dorothy Day, founder of the Catholic Worker movement) on the Russians: “In my twenty years residence in Riga I sought to avoid close association with Russians, all shades of Russians. It was not actual dislike, for the average Russian is a very likable person. My articles were often quoted in Russian language newspapers published in Europe and I was invited to Russian gatherings and functions. These invitations I did not accept, not even to the annual Russian navy ball which was one of the season’s most enjoyable functions. I knew many of these White Russians and some of them I felt instinctively that I could not trust.

    In my earlier contacts with the Russians I was impressed with the great similarity existing between them and the American Negro. Both races are artistic. They have natural gifts for music and dancing. They have a childish love for adornment. Just as the Russian peasant will hang up his new pair of boots beneath the ikon in the comer of the wall to admire them better, so the Negro will place his new shoes on a table to contemplate them with the rapture of a child.

    It is remarkable fact that the best bass voices in the world are to be found among the Russians and Negroes. Both are collective minded, they like to live in groups. Both are lazy and not inclined to work except under compulsion. They are both irresponsible and unreliable. If you send either a Russian or a Negro out to do something for you, you are never certain that it will be done the way you want it to be. This sounds childish but they are childish in many ways. They have many of the good and bad characteristics of children.”

    I've noticed the same myself. Russians have an over-confidence in themselves. Like to fight. Bratty, demanding leaders. Have major social ills, like drugs and alcohol, but lack the self-introspection to consider their behavior problematic. The country has a low birth rate but an abundance of white children that need to be adopted.

    Russians are white Africans. They like bling. They like shoving their wealth in people's faces. It is no surprise that Russia is the only white country where the people willingly embraced communism rather than have it forced upon them (by the Russians, of course). If you lived in a country of Russian capitalists you would have been a communist, too.

    And given their love for and protection of guys like Willie Brown (and Bob Filner, Anthony Weiner, Elliot Spitzer, Bill Clinton, Neil Goldschmidt, Anthony Villaraigosa, and Gavin Newsome) until their sexual behavior was finally made fully public, Democrats will have to do a really, really, really good job explaining why I shouldn't vote for Donald Trump because of his "misogyny."

    I would so love it if we could develop viable alternatives to fuel the economy, industry and transportation, perhaps powered by sunshine, breaking wind or at least the lashing tongues and empty windbags of our elected representatives and fourth estate media personalities.

    Then we could finally tell our Russki mafioski friends and those gentle and friendly oil sheikhs, “No thanks, just store it where the sun doesn’t shine.”

  27. When I first moved to SF in the 1980s, I asked a friend how Willie Brown could be both Speaker of the Assembly and a bigwig in a law firm that did lots of business with the state. Wasn’t that a conflict of interest?

    The response was: “Haha, that’s our Willie Brown!”

  28. Adventuresses would rather Willie Brown than all those Silicon Valley millionaire nerds. Tells you something. Even money can’t compensate. For high male IQ.

    A couple of points to quibble. First, Russians did not willingly embrace communism. That’s why they had a major civil war. Second, those who forced it upon them weren’t necessarily Russian.

    Also, you might have to change your narrative about Russians being the only whites to accept communism. Though it might not be communism in the Soviet sense, the sheep of Western Europe are embracing full subjugation as we speak. And unlike the Russians, the Western Europeans are being subjugated without the force of arms.

    Even successful blacks are an embarrassment, smh. It's just instant gratification to them, no notion of long term planning or leaving behind a legacy. Just seeds scattered to the wind. Polygamy would be more preferable to this lifestyle.

    To that end here's a story on BB King's estate battle, 15 kids by 15 women but none of them maybe his biological kids because he's had a low sperm count his whole life.

    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/features/bb-kings-estate-war-15-897351


    The year since then has been decidedly less peaceful. While neither of King's two marriages resulted in children, he managed to leave behind a vast family: 15 kids from 15 women. If that family history weren't complex enough, King's authorized biographer Charles Sawyer wrote in his book, The Arrival of BB King, that doctors found the musician's sperm count too low to conceive children. In 2015, Sawyer told The Guardian that he had given King the option to remove the reference and that King declined. Either way, King claimed 15 kids as his own — never disputing his paternity — and of the 11 who survive, many now are fighting with King's appointed trustee over his estate, a fortune that family members tell THR could be worth between $30 million and $40 million when royalties, asset sales and rights are taken into account. Many of the kids point to a 2007 will and trust that they claim grant them generous allowances. But King's longtime business manager, LaVerne Toney, who is now the legal trustee of King's estate, asserts that she merely is following a 2014 trust, which names the children but doesn't provide for them with specific monetary gifts. According to the trustee's own legal filings in Nevada, King's estate also is far smaller than the children allege: $5 million and change spread across a few Wells Fargo bank accounts. But the kids have assembled teams of lawyers to fight the estate's guardians. The litigation could continue for years.
     

    And these B B Kings and Willie Browns seem to find some white women, regardless of I Q, to hobnob with? Amazin’, ain’t it? Or not!

    Has she had any children? I just wonder what happens when he dies and she's maybe 50.

    Steve noted that we used to have words like 'adventuress' which were useful but un-PC. I assume 'kept woman' suffered the same fate.

    I don’t know if she has children, but she does not have any with Willie Brown.

    Willie Brown only has four children, three with his wife. His daughter Sydney was born in 2001.

  35. @fnn
    Long time Chicago Tribune Baltic correspondent Donald Day (sister of Dorothy Day, founder of the Catholic Worker movement) on the Russians: "In my twenty years residence in Riga I sought to avoid close association with Russians, all shades of Russians. It was not actual dislike, for the average Russian is a very likable person. My articles were often quoted in Russian language newspapers published in Europe and I was invited to Russian gatherings and functions. These invitations I did not accept, not even to the annual Russian navy ball which was one of the season’s most enjoyable functions. I knew many of these White Russians and some of them I felt instinctively that I could not trust.

    In my earlier contacts with the Russians I was impressed with the great similarity existing between them and the American Negro. Both races are artistic. They have natural gifts for music and dancing. They have a childish love for adornment. Just as the Russian peasant will hang up his new pair of boots beneath the ikon in the comer of the wall to admire them better, so the Negro will place his new shoes on a table to contemplate them with the rapture of a child.

    It is remarkable fact that the best bass voices in the world are to be found among the Russians and Negroes. Both are collective minded, they like to live in groups. Both are lazy and not inclined to work except under compulsion. They are both irresponsible and unreliable. If you send either a Russian or a Negro out to do something for you, you are never certain that it will be done the way you want it to be. This sounds childish but they are childish in many ways. They have many of the good and bad characteristics of children."

    I’ve noticed the same myself. Russians have an over-confidence in themselves. Like to fight. Bratty, demanding leaders. Have major social ills, like drugs and alcohol, but lack the self-introspection to consider their behavior problematic. The country has a low birth rate but an abundance of white children that need to be adopted.

    $5 million seems far too low to be the true value of the BB King estate; I'd guess the trustee is lying.

    Even if people don't buy albums any more, I can't believe that no car company is ever going to use "Tired of Your Jive" or "The Thrill is Gone" or (more appropriately, perhaps) "Paying the Cost to be the Boss?"

    BB King is kind of interesting as a foil to Willie Brown, since his lyrics tended to be a one man War on Women and their various claims and demands and betrayals. But classic blues is from a world in which black relationships, at least in the common culture, involved an expectation of commitment that could then be failed, rather than no expectation of commitment at all.

    $5 million seems far too low to be the true value of the BB King estate; I’d guess the trustee is lying.

    It sounds right to me. Ed McMahon worked until two or three years before his death and he died broke, spent his money on ex-wives and kids.

    BB King was raised in segregated Mississippi and poorly educated. Even educated blacks spend money on their families and don’t do well with investments. When half of your earnings go to taxes and you give money to 15 kids and dozens grandchildren and great-grandchildren, not much is left over.

    Look at the countless number of young athletes whose fortunes have been wiped out by spending on family and friends and far fewer children than BB King.

    A friend of mine used to work at the BB King Blues Club in NYC. BB didn't own the club. Rather, the club paid him only $10,000 a year plus a gig whenever he wanted. That was the total compensation for use of his name and image. An estate of $5 million therefore seems just about right.
  37. @anonymous-antimarxist
    Which again furthers my point.

    Many black women would love to claim prestigious paternity for their children if offered the chance and would easily opt for the sperm of the "talented 1%, hell very talented .1%" if given a chance.

    Instead of a life long criminal dindu nuffins ghetto lottery winner having 13 kids by 11 baby mamas and those baby momas each having a couple more bastards by another hoodlum, you could have a easily have a million baby mamas having a single child by lets say Denzel Washington, Tony Dungy, Neil Degrasse Tyson.....

    And that would dramatically and irreversibly improve the quality of the black gene pool without anywhere near the cost of funding prison space for the next generation of sociopaths.

    I like how you think out of the box.

    Otherwise you are hoping that D’Shawntavius gets killed or paralyzed before polluting the gene pool with his bastards, causing endless future generations of misery for the entire nation.

    Yeah yeah yeah, feel free to quibble. The Germans, as we all know, “embraced” Nazism despite the fact that the Nazis never won a majority, either. Not really the point. The point is that the communists were strong enough to win control of the country. That relied on having a large share of the population sympathetic to communism.
