Taye Diggs on Being Single: 'I've Never Had Game'

Taye Diggs and football player Jon Beason have fun with some sideline equipment during Duracell’s interactive tour of MetLife Stadium on Thursday (August 27) in East Rutherford, NJ.

The 43-year-old Murder in The First star, who was also joined at the event by singer Lianah Sta Ana, went on The Wendy Williams Show that day and discussed being a single dad.

“I’ve never had game. Period,” Taye said. “I was really nerdy, but these days, you know, I’m a single dad. So, it’s like, if I see somebody it’s literally, ‘So, do you have kids? Is he out of diapers yet?’”

When asked about his recent split from Idina Menzel, he answered, “I’m hanging in there. I mean, it’s not awesome.”

He was also asked if he’s seeing anyone at the moment. “I’m hanging out with people.” Taye has been connected to model Amanza Smith Brown, who he brought to the 2014 MTV VMAs.

    He is the biggest phony out there. I have no respect for him but I would have slightly more if he was just honest and said, “I like sleeping with other women and partying all night.” He looks like an idiot when he says he’s “not awesome and he’s hanging in there” and is then pictured all over LA (where he currently isn’t working and his child does not live) going out to dinner, clubs, and award shows that he has literally no reason to be at.
    It’s more and more clear that his family life was cramping his style so he ditched them. It’s also interesting that his split came right as his wife returned to working full time on broadway for the first time since she had her son. It’s as if the expectation I’m presuming she might have had for him to pitch in more was too much for him. How could you possibly expect this 43 year old man to stay home at night with his son when there are so many clubs and strip joints to go to?
    But karma is a funny thing and as soon as that happened his wife had the best professional year of her life. She’s going through this process with enormous strength and grace, the complete opposite of how he’s been handling it. Any Broadway show is grueling, but she is carrying her show on her back and. Plus the subject matter is so close to home, I really don’t know how she gets through it nightly. She’s always complimentary of him in interviews and saying he’s a good father and a friend. Personally I think she’s just saying that to keep it easy and drama free in the press and of course out of respect for her son. He, on the other hand, in this interview called her his “baby mama”. They were together for 18 years and everybody knows who she is–why not just call her by her first name?
    If anyone looks like the textbook definition of “baby mama” and all that usually implies it’s his new girlfriend.
    In another interview he made it sound like idina was silly for reading books about parenting and researching schools that encourage creativity (—I’m not making this up). I guess actually parenting is just not attractive to him. I guess that’s why he likes Amanza so much. She apparently has 2 kids but can find a lot of time to be out and about including flying to New York to cavort with him. They deserve each other.
