Adrienne Bailon On Being With A Man Who Will Pray For You

If you get you a man who can pray for you, it can sustain your life.

When Adrienne Bailon and Israel Houghton married in 2016, it was no quiet affair. Israel proposed to the now 35-year-old talk show host shortly after a scandalous divorce with his ex-wife and mother of two of his children and the Internet was shook. Although Adrienne and Israel say that their story has been less than perfect, one thing that has been consistent in their relationship is prayer.

In a recent episode of All Things Adrienne, Adrienne Houghton opened up her faith journey and why she still chose Israel despite his imperfections. The host said that while before meeting Israel, religion wasn't a major factor when it came to choosing a partner, she soon learned that she had to adjust her rubric:

"It was really important to me to marry somebody with the same faith as me but I didn't realize that and I wasn't conscious about that. Because I had dated people before that didn't attend church and later on in the relationship, it became a weird spot for us cuz I'd be like, 'Hey, I really want to go to church' or I'd want to listen to worship music. And they'd be like 'Eeh not so into that.' So that was extremely important for me. I think it's beautiful to be able to bond over something like that."

Adrienne said that another thing that makes her fall in love with her husband every day is his selflessness in prayer. Get a man that's rich and you can pay the bills; but if you get you a man who can pray for you, it can sustain your life. According to Adrienne, the quality that she appreciates most about his husband is that he has consistently been a spiritual warrior on her behalf:

"That was really, really important to me. And I just feel really, really blessed to have someone in my life that I can pray with, someone that prays over me. Someone that covers me, that I can worship with. I just think that that's so special. That means so much to me."

While Israel and Adrienne may not have the fairytale love story we dreamed about as kids, what they have works for them. When it comes to critics of their relationship, Adrienne asks for them to trade in their insults and offer some empathy:

"My answer to people who want to be controversial or think that I'm controversial or that think that I don't represent a perfect Christian, my answer to that is please pray for me. We're all a work in progress. We're all under construction."

While she says that her DMs are always open to constructive criticism, she suggests that those who disapprove of her choice in a partner worry more about their own spiritual journey:

"So many different questions of drinking wine or listening to worldly music. Some people it doesn't affect their walk with Christ, other people it does. At the end of the day, it's about your heart and your relationship with Christ. That's between you and Jesus. That don't have nothing to do with me. I'm on my path, you're on yours. I felt like if we all did that a bit more and joined mind your business ministries, that's where the love of Christ really is."

There is no way for me to hide the absolute joy unspeakable that I have about the fact that fall is just a few days away (September 22)! While there are a billion-and-one things that I adore about this time of the year, one of my favorites is preparing warm dishes, on purpose, to contrast the cooler weather that's headed our way.

It's been 573 days since my last New York Fashion Week. That's one year, six months, and 24 days. The last time I was in Manhattan, February 2020, was just as Big Rona was placing a chokehold on the world. I would have never guessed that while I was living my best life in the NYC streets, a pandemic would soon change my life completely. Because of the state of the world, there were no shows in September and by February 2021, the fashion houses were trying to figure out how to put on runway shows which led many brands to the digital space.

If you haven't heard by now, Yahya Abdul Mateen II is the 'it guy' in Hollywood. He currently stars in Nia DaCosta's adaptation of the cult thriller Candyman, and he hasn't slowed down since. His appeal? His unwavering charm, his statuesque gladiator silhouette, and unfamiliar name that commands the room. But he's much more than that.

I was always content with the shape of my body. I never really had major weight issues either. I inherited my small bone structure and my small frame from my mom. I guess you can say I have those good Caribbean genes. I have long arms, long legs, and a short torso. But I also carry my weight well. So, when I gain or lose weight, the distribution of weight is evenly proportioned. At 36, I'm fully grown. I stand 5'4", a DD+, and I don't know where all this ass came from. Now I have a butt I never used to have.
