Tisha Campbell On Her Fear Of Dating & Being Happily Single For The First Time In 22 Years

Sis had 99 problems, but a d*ck ain't one

Celebrity News

Last February, Duane Martin and Tisha Campbell filed for divorce and a slew of messy headlines ensued. From restraining orders to financial misappropriation allegations, the estranged couple has made it clear that after 22 years of marriage, they're ready to close one chapter and begin another.

And in a recent interview with Hollywood Unlocked, Tisha revealed that after enduring her messy split, she may have had 99 problems but a d*ck ain't one. The actress, who has rarely talked about the tumultuous divorce publicly, opened up about being "happily single" after more than two decades. She explained:

"I am but I'm not looking for anybody right now. This is the first time in 22 years that I've been—and I'm scared. I think I'm scared."

Although Tisha may have lost a partner over the last year, she gained a newfound perspective. Tisha explained that because she married young and moved in with her husband immediately after moving out of her mother's home, her divorce has been the first time she's ever had a chance to stand on her own two feet:

"I know that I'm smart. That's what I see. I had to learn a lot in the last couple of years and I'm smart. You gotta understand, I went straight from my mom's house to my husband's house."

While Tisha and Duane's divorce may have gotten pretty nasty, one thing that hasn't is Tisha Campbell's bedroom. The 51-year-old actress explained that although she's happily single, she isn't quite ready to mingle. As a single woman for the first time in 22 years, Tisha says dipping her big toe in the dating pool isn't a dive she's willing to take anytime soon:

"You know what's funny? I can't even be that. Still. Me and my friend had a conversation about the responsibility of who I am. She said, 'You can't even have consensual nothing because you're going to play yourself out.' And I said, 'That's not fair.' It's a different day and age. When I look at millennials, they're more fluid and I'm not even talking about with their sexuality. I'm talking about with them just being able to—in my day, in the nineties, we were looked down upon for just embracing our own sensuality."

Tisha says that while her previous marriage proved unsuccessful, she's not quite ready to give up on love yet. The entertain says more than anything, she's grateful for the "beautiful devastation" that acted as a catalyst for her growth.

"I think that when you go through things, unexpected it is a beautiful devastation. This person told me embrace the pain, every tear because you're growing from that and you're going to be a different person. You're going to be a phoenix. And in the moment, you don't believe it. It sounds so cliché and you don't want to hear that shit. But it's f*ckin true."

How To Focus Less On Who You Attract In Dating & More On Who You Entertain

The law of attraction is tricky. A few years ago, I felt something was deeply wrong with me because I kept attracting people who hurt me. No matter how hard I tried to fix myself, and alter my energy, the same type of people kept coming my way. I'd talk to my friends about it and ask them, "Why do I keep attracting this type of person? Why do I keep having the same experiences?"

Here's Why You Should Ditch Fourth Of July And Have A Family Reunion Instead

“Who made the potato salad?” As summertime kicks off, this is the universal question that, without fail, will be asked at every barbeque and backyard kickback over the coming months. With the Fourth of July also nearing, summertime celebrations and cookouts will be in full force. However, as the tide begins to turn in this new day and age, more Black Americans are celebrating Juneteenth, instead of the Fourth of July, because, after all, there were still over 250,000 Black Americans enslaved in Galveston, Texas during this so-called Independence Day.
