    Good for her. I didn’t want to believe it at first but those stories about his constant cheating got really nasty.

    I’m not black, but why do successful black men always have to marry white women? CNN did a survey a few years ago and found that 40% of black women will never marry. That’s one of the reasons why.

    Marry your best friend, not someone you’re really attracted to . You have to really LIKE the person you’re marrying otherwise all the sexual chem and status or money or whatever won’t make it last.

    Wow, 1/4 of these comments are racist because this is an interracial couple! And the racist commenters aren’t using their real names! Such helpful contributions to the conversation.

    It’s a hollyweirds couple after all. Once you have two big heads and ne feels a little left out, sees the other in a successful project or hasn’t had a hit in a while, we’ll they gots to go….next

    Not sure. I have an idea but won’t go into it. I’m a single black female professional and i have decided to open my dating selection because of this very reason you speak of and I feel single black women are following suit.

    Can’t say I’m completely surprised. I never bought them as a couple. Surprised about the so-called cheating rumors.

    Wurry Says:

    Don’t know much about about them since they have been mostly able to keep things private.
    I’ve only read ‘blind’ items about her being difficult to work with.

    interesting..just saw a special with her and she made a comment about how they both got along better on stage than in real life. This makes sense now.

    @tick: What some black women laugh about is how white women go into these relationships with black men and LIE so much about what is REALLY going on. They lie to their families and lie to their communities, trying to make everyone believe these men adore and love them more than black women. HAR-HAR. I know non-famous white women who did this and years later, the truth came out that it was all such a SHAM! There are a number of famous black men who you couldn’t pay me to marry. And that’s the truth. No woman should lower her standards and marry a hound dog just to have a man. Sometimes the only thing that finally cures them is old age… as in one foot in the grave.

    eh Says:

    Nonetheless, I am sorry about these two. Wonder what it was They seemed to be solid for so long. I know he loves his son, but hope having a kid did not kill the romance between them. Many couples just expect everything to always be about them and their needs, but a child changes that — quickly!

    It’s sad to see a long term marriage break up. Me personally, I would always put my marriage before any career ambition.

    White women ain't heaven, huh? Says:

    Taye HATES black women. Whenever Taye’s acting career isn’t thriving he blames black women, especially African American black women. Read and remember, ya heard it here first, Taye will somehow find a way to blame the end of his marriage on black women.

    Taye’s a bigot, a cheater and a coward. The ugly manly-looking soon- to-be ex-wife idina is better off without Taye’s cheating ass. The white chicks can have you Taye.

    Oh, dear. Trust me, you can really find someone who does both for you. Care for you deeply as a person and be sexually attractive to you. If you aren’t attracted to the person then that makes sex a sorry proposition. That alone can destroy a marriage.

    She has a hideous jawline! What the hell did he see in her?

    Angel Says:

    I’ve never, ever seen them as a couple in public. Very weird. They’ve seemed to live separate lives throughout their ‘marriage’.

    Reba Says:

    Way back when he was on Thr View and she was in the audience. The camera turned on her and Taye totally dismissed her in front of millions! I was like ‘Woah’, how rude! I saw him at a club in Montigo Bay, Jamaica and he was sueeounded by women. You could tell he had a HUGE ego even back then.

    Reba Says:

    @tick: low self-esteem and poor self-image. It comes from centuries of oppression…
