Vivica A. Fox Has Entered The Chat: "I Would Marry Again, But We Need Separate Houses"

"Once you get older, I think space is beautiful."

Celebrity News

Auntie Viv is in such a great place these days, which we love to see. She has managed to stay bookedT and busy, even during the pandemic, and as she has always been since arriving on the scene in the '90s, and you know she keeps her a bag nearby in doing so. Because of her experience in navigating Hollywood, when sis opens her mouth to discuss just about anything, we listen, as we know she's going to come with what we all really need to hear.


Additionally, she is a host on the hit show Cocktails with Queens–featuring herself, Syleena Johnson, and LisaRaye McCoy, where they discuss it all, no topic or current event is off the table.

Well, Ms. Fox took a moment away from the hosting table, to sit in the interview chair while visiting 'The Wendy Williams Show'.

The topic of her once-love 50 Cent came up, which for some reason, interviewers continually ask her about every single time for almost 20 years, to which Wendy then asked her if she would ever marry again.

"Absolutely. BUT. I wouldn't have a problem if he had a house next door, and I had my own. I met a couple of women that literally--I did a movie in Temecula and my friend, she has a very happy marriage, but then her husband has a little house down below, and they're happy and he pays for both."

Wendy agrees, as she continues:

"Well, once you get older, I think space is beautiful. There's nothing wrong with saying, 'I'll see you on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and you know, we can do the do, and have a good time, and you go back to your place.' It probably will last longer. Our world has changed so much that I just believe space is a beautiful thing."

Vivica was married to singer Christopher Harvest from 1998-2002, which she recently (and rarely) opened up about to VladTV. In the interview, she admitted their marriage started off on on the wrong foot, being that because she wanted a fairy tale wedding like all of the women around her, she rushed walking down the aisle.

"I did. I hate to say that. Everyone was having their Cinderella day and I just wanted one too to be very honest with you. Why the marriage didn't last a long time is 'cause I didn't take the time to get to know him. I felt peer pressure."

Her breaking point came after Harvest's group didn't get the recording deal they were planning on, she noticed he didn't pursue other opportunities with the ferocity she would have in her own career, and she wound up taking care of them both.

"He didn't go out and then pursue things with the same drive that I had for my career. You know, a woman doesn't like paying all the bills all the time. I can only ask for help so many times before I had to come to the conclusion that I didn't want to be the breadwinner in this family. My mother didn't raise me to take care of a man. And that was the deciding factor."

And interestingly enough, this new trend of marrying your spouse and having separate homes, is only growing in much of Hollywood, as actress and singer Keri Hilson, expressed the same sentiments.

She told HelloBeautiful:

"I'm like Mykah Jones (her television character) in that I love myself, I love my singleness and I love my alone time. Even if I were with someone, I still need me time a lot to the point where I could probably live in two separate houses with my own husband. I've done two separate countries for over a decade. I want to put myself in a position to find that partner and maybe accelerate the process in-between because I'll go years in between relationships."

Could you live in a separate home from your significant other?

Simone Biles is a decorated U.S. gymnast who captured the hearts of many with her ambitious, yet graceful moves. However, over the past year, fans got to witness another side of Simone after the gymnast began expressing the issues she's faced regarding her mental health. The Olympic gold medalist shocked everyone when she pulled out of some of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic games, citing "twisties" as the reason. The twisties is a gymnastics term that is described as losing control of your body while spinning in the air.

The relationship we have and nurture with self lays the foundation for how we relate to and connect with others in our lives. Assessing the issues that discourage self-love from prospering are key in order to repair and reignite the freedom that comes when we finally believe the words "you are enough." I chatted with self-love advocate and lifestyle entrepreneur Shelah Marie – who you may remember from when her 2017 photo of doing yoga with boyfriend, rapper Ace Hood, went viral. Shelah's mission is to create a movement of total self-love and liberation for women of color through her platform Curvy, Curly, Conscious – a place where "self-help" meets "real talk" through virtual and offline events and retreats.

The first time I really learned about the five love languages was a year after a big heartbreak in my early twenties, and since then I've found myself exploring the love languages of each of my subsequent partners in an effort to be a better lover to them. At the click of a simple quiz, you'll know whether words of affirmation, acts of service, quality time, receiving gifts, or physical touch is the primary way you prefer to experience love.

At the start of each season, I browse the net to get an idea of the latest styles and trends to look out for when adding to my closet. When shopping, not only do I love items that are hot for the moment but mainly those that I can keep in rotation year after year. I especially look for styles that are both modern and classic, giving off an effortlessly timeless vibe.

Kissing is such a fascinating thing — to me. The reason why I say that is because, if the person you are exchanging a kiss with is someone who is good at it, it can be the sexiest, most special and most exhilarating thing ever. On the other hand, if they aren't so good — it's just gross. I don't know about y'all, but kissing is such a big deal in my world that I once broke up with someone, in part, because they totally sucked at doing it. It was like, no matter how hard I tried to explain to them what I needed in order to feel like we were in "kissing sync", they would continue to go off and do their own thing. All over my face (yuck).
