Will & Heather Packer Share The Keys To A Successful Marriage

Celebrity News

With Will Packer being the man behind so many of our favorite romantic comedies like Girls Trip, About Last Night, What Men Want, and many more, it's hard not to wonder how he is so in tune with concepts that women love. Perhaps his secret sauce is being a great listener and valuing the input of women. Madame Noire got the chance to speak to this mega-producer and his wife, Heather Packer, to figure out firsthand what he thinks men truly want, and what the couple learned from each other during their relationship.


When it comes to the question of what men want, Will thinks that the answer is not too complicated. He explains:

"I think men want to learn, I hope. At the end of the day, men are simple creatures. What you think men want, that's what they want. I'm glad this gift doesn't actually exist, because it's dark in there when you're talking about the mind of a man...I think for me and the men that I know, we really are just trying to please women that matter to us."

That desire to learn makes it more obvious why he and Heather have such a successful romance, being that she is a woman that he has learned a great deal from. The two wed back in August of 2015 after meeting at the Essence Music Festival in 2009, leading to his proposal on stage in the Superdome in 2013. Will describes Heather as much more than his lover, but as his best friend and cheerleader:

"She is someone who always pushes me to not talk about what could happen and not talk about what I hope would happen but claim it as already happening. She is somebody who has taught me that I can actually help to manifest success in my life if I speak it into existence and if I believe it so fiercely and so strongly that I have no choice but to go out and make it happen."

The support is mutual with this dynamic duo, as Heather describes being drawn in by his creative spirit and his ability to dream big. When questioned about what she has learned from her husband that has helped her grow and evolve as a woman, she explains:

"Oh wow. [I have learned] So much. He's such a go-getter, such a goal setter. I give him the support he needs, but he supports me back and he encourages me to follow my dreams as well…his tenacity. His spirit."

This couple proves that love is transformative and evolutionary, often helping people reach new heights of success and personal growth. It is always refreshing to see great examples of Black love both on and off screen. Cheers!

Ever since Chlöe and her sister Halle Bailey have been creating their own identities outside of their group Chloe x Halle, Chlöe has faced Beyoncé comparisons. Modeling her performance style after Beyoncé is no surprise since both Chlöe and Halle are signed to the "Formation" artist's label Parkwood Entertainment and so there's no doubt Queen Bey has influenced them in more ways than one.

While it's important that we're always proactive about taking care of our immune system, if there is any time of year when we tend to think about it more than usual, it's right when the fall season arrives. Cold weather has something to do with it. Cold and flu cases spiking have something to do with it. Wanting to make sure that we stay well enough so that we can enjoy some holiday time off probably plays a role in it too. And while things like rest, exercise and not smoking all help to keep our immune system healthy and strong, it's important to know how much diet plays a part in all of this too.

Y'all. Y'ALL. A couple of weeks ago, I decided to get a humidifier (which is basically an electronic device that helps to put humidity into the air). The main reason why is because I read an article that said that COVID thrives in low humidity. I'll get into that in a second, though. Anyway, what I thought was going to be a quick trip up the street ended up being a day-long endeavor because I had to go to four different stores and all of them had inventory issues. Most said it was because of the labor shortage that's been happening all over the country.
