Rice says it was a ‘mistake’ to not apologize to wife, Janay Rice, at the press conference following the elevator incident, during an interview with Matt Lauer which aired on Today.
The reason why that press conference was the way it was, was because we were still under legal situations. So there wasn’t much that could be said, but I’ll be honest, we were nervous, I was nervous, and that was the first time we were available to speak. And I made a horrendous mistake not apologizing to my wife.
Rice discusses the elevator incident involving her and her husband, Ray Rice, in an interview with Matt Lauer at her home in Baltimore that aired on Today. Rice talks about her silence over the past six months.
That’s been the hardest part, is having so much of your life made public and have it all be negative. That’s the hardest part. Is not having control over anything that has to do with you. It’s a natural thing for a human to want to come out and say, ‘No, no. That’s not me,’ or, ‘No, that’s not true.’ But it’s like a battle that we just can’t win.
