“I think a lot of women need to hear — and not saying it is right for you, but you also need to understand — when you give power to somebody, that’s also a power move itself. He is not going to have power if I don’t give that to him,” she explained.

“I have that power to be able to share that with him. To say, ‘I want you to lead. I want you to do what you do well as a man that I am trusting you to do. Take in my thoughts, my wishes, my dreams and then compute that into a vision for us that I can feel safe and secure knowing that you can lead us,’” she continued.

“By the way, he wouldn’t have that if I wasn’t a powerful woman to be able to give him that. I just want women to remind themselves that you are the powerful being and a big part of the picture if you are able to do that in your household. There’s a beautiful dance that can come out of it, and it’s no different than what Brandon [Armstrong] and I do every week on the dance floor. If I don’t give him the ability to lead me, you are not going to see what you saw tonight.”

Here’s what she originally said that caused some debate and conversation online.
