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?

Your October 2022 Horoscopes Are All About Finding Flow & Alignment

October is a month of balance. With some energy moving direct and some energy moving retrograde, there is a middle ground to find this month between what is unfolding and what you are letting go. The month begins with Mercury officially moving out of retrograde and going direct in Virgo. Mercury this month is cleaning house and sprucing things up after the somewhat tyrant energy it’s brought over the past few weeks. Now that Mercury is direct, there is less interruption when it comes to daily flow and plans, and this is a good month to start setting things into motion.

The Myth Of The Sex Drive & How Libido Changes From Your 20s, 30s, 40s & 50s

No one prepared me for how horny I would be in my late 30s. All the elders in my life prepared me for random chin hairs, weight gain, and menopause but no one said a mumbling word about my sex drive. Something happens the closer you get to forty. I went from wanting sex here and there to wanting it all the damn time. Is there a support group for this? I can’t be the only one who has the sex drive of the Energizer Bunny. Upon my research to figure out why I felt like a cat in heat, I discovered several theories surrounding women and our sex drives–including one that says the concept of having a sex drive is a myth altogether.

Black woman with an afro and tube top laughing

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically. For them, being a villain means letting the chips fall where they may when you no longer allow other people’s ideas about you to restrict you from living the life that you want and deserve.
