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.)

Summer is coming to an end, and it's officially time to start the fall activities. And with the start of a new season comes new movies and shows. One, in particular, is the final season of Netflix's Dear White People, airing September 22. A great thing about this show is that it sparks healthy conversation. Past seasons have explored topics like double consciousness, sexuality, and the Me Too Movement, but it's done it in a way that still allows the show to feel relatable and fun.

Period pain. Lawd. Could there be something that is more annoying, especially since it happens every 28-30 days? Like, c'mon. If you've ever wondered about the science behind it all, basically, we need our uterus to contract, so that it can shed the lining that accumulated, just in case we conceived in between cycles. And so, what basically happens is, the prostaglandins levels in our system increase which trigger inflammation and also period pain, so that the blood is able to flow from our bodies.

One of my favorite things about the changing seasons are the new vibes and new energies that change welcomes with it. September represents a transition from the white sand beaches, bottomless brunches, and undeniable romantic vibes long nights, festivals, and impromptu road trips often thought of when we think about the summer. In its place comes romanticism in a different approach. Pumpkin spice anything, the excuse to cuddle up, and the leaves of the trees turning warm shades sparks joy in a different way as fall begins. Perhaps what I am most excited about though are the 2021 wellness trends that come with it.

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.
