Watch Ray Rice's Wife Janay Speak Out After He's Reinstated To Play In The NFL

| Filed under: Sad SadFootballNFLMatt Lauer

Janay Rice talks about her husband beating her

After Thanksgiving, a judge ruled that Ray Rice was to be reinstated into the NFL after he was suspended for knocking out his now-wife Janay Rice in an Atlantic City elevator.

And since the legal proceedings are over, Janay gets to tell her side of the story now.

On Monday, she confirmed to Today's Matt Lauer that it was the first time Ray had ever hit her, and that she feels betrayed by the Baltimore Ravens for letting her husband go.

Janay also goes into detail about seeing the first tape, but refusing to see the second one because it was such a painful moment for them.

In the interview (below), Janay sounds extremely sincere, but there are still some aspects that are bothering people. Like, why would Ray spit in the face of his childhood sweetheart just because she grabbed for his phone? And how come he carelessly flopped her unconscious body out of the elevator instead of carrying her and making sure she was okay after he knocked her out?

The important thing is that she sounds like she and Ray are doing well, and we truly hope they are!

Ch-ch-check out the story, in Janay's words, and tell us your thoughts (below)!

    I don't believe that this was the first time he has hit her. Her interview showed classic symptoms of a battered woman. I think violence has and will always be a part of their relationship unless they both get help or they separate for the sake of their child. I wish them both the best.

    The justice system does not belong to her, or to any victim. Even though she didn't want him prosecuted, it wasn't her decision to make at that point. I wish them well too, but I agree with RealRealityGossip that this is not likely to have been a one-time problem. He should just take his punishment, not send her out on his behalf–on top of everything else. Ick.

    Based on the childish rant she posted after the elevator footage came out. I'm not sure i want to hear anything she has to say. We all know she has the battered woman syndrome. Blame everyone and everything else but HIM..

    This family is making bank off of Ray Rice's athletic prowess. Thus, they will accept an elevator beat down of grand proportions. Janay's mom seems a bit young. So sad that our society has come to this…anything for money.

    Who does she think she's fooling? If your husband so viciously beats you then drags your body by the hair across the floor, who cares how many times he's done it? Once is one too many! Violence desn't erupt this dangerouly on th first time, the victim is conditioned to tolerate it in increments; he just calls me names, now he just pushed me, now a shove, now aslap, now a punch etc. This girl isin denial and I hope she doesn't end up dead one day.

    Classic Battered Women Syndrome. It's really sad that she tries to excuse his behavior. That elevator knock down she got from him wasn't the first and won't be the last time he beats her.
