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?

Those who have experienced an HBCU homecoming understand the assignment. Students, alumni, and family of a Historically Black College and University gather to partake in the excitement of celebrating the heritage and culture of the school. It's a time of joy, honoring traditions, and for some, reflecting on the good ol' days. Homecoming weekends are spent eating well, laughing plenty, and enjoying the sights; and there is plenty to see! (Spoiler alert: Sleep is not on the syllabus.)

A few days ago, I was having a conversation with some folks about songs that should've been official singles yet never were. One of the ones that I shared was Mariah Carey's "All Alone in Love" (a song that she wrote when she was only 15, by the way). To me, it's a perfect way to intro this piece because I have had enough personal experiences and counseled enough people to know that it is very possible to be in a relationship with someone — and still feel quite alone in it. Not because your partner doesn't love you. Not because they're up to some totally f'ed up shenanigans. It's just…even though you signed up for a true and lasting partnership, somehow you now feel some of the very words that define what being alone can feel like: unattended, detached, unassisted, semi-compassionless and perhaps even abandoned on some levels.

When I think about actresses who have been cultural figures throughout my lifetime, Gabrielle Union-Wade is truly one of the first names that come to mind. I can recall being on the playground in grade school urging my friends to learn the cheer routines from Bring it On just as easily as I can remember a few years ago watching Being Mary Jane, crying from the relatability of Mary Jane's life struggles (a story for another day). It's inspiring to watch a powerful black woman whose art has been a consistent source of entertainment and influence. Although I must say, I think many of us have grown to cherish her personal journey and stories just as much.

Feed-in braids have become one of the hottest hair trends on the scene. These types of braids are created by "feeding-in" pieces of hair extensions to the main braid so that it gradually grows in size. It gives the illusion that the hair is directly growing from the scalp, which comes in clutch for styles that requires synthetic hair. This type of styling allows for a more natural look at the hairline and it protects your edges and hairline from excessive tension from heavy hair extensions thus, reducing the likelihood of traction alopecia (or loss of hair from the hairline.) And for women of color, tight braids or pulling the hair back too tight is one leading cause of this type of hair loss.

As the winds cool and the leaves change colors, it is without fail that I get this invigorating feeling. Potentially a feeling left over from childhood where every September presents a new opportunity to reinvent yourself, or possibly the contagious buzz of fashion weeks across the globe with streets lined with inspiration for how to style fall's hottest trends. Regardless, there's no doubt that my love of fashion rears its head at this time and always pulls me back into the fold. The fun, albeit overwhelming, thing about this season is the sheer volume of trends presented on the runways. In many ways, we're taking a trip down memory lane, but in other ways, we're seeing the rules of fashion being reinvented in front of our eyes.
