    she is perfect - this is the reason that you can be the best person but if you are married to a cheater, abuser - your value is zero in his eyes - BOUNDARIES - ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

    Halle Berry is White !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Next time she excepts an award on behalf of her people , she should remember she's half white. And guess where she got her looks, & if she didn't have those looks, she wouldn't be excepting any awards, because she sure can't act !!

    "Perfect marriagres" are false...they do NOT exist. If you have deluded yourself into some narcissistic fantasy that you have the perfect marriage you are in for a REAL awakening when the truth comes out.

    I left my ex boyfriend for asking a girl he had a crush on out to lunch as a goodbye because she was moving away! She didn’t even respond! I found it in his Facebook messenger and he admitted he was still attracted to her but would have brought me with him had she said yes (why would I want to go?) I didn’t believe him and dumped him for that. For having female friends he was attracted to as BFF’s. And he lied to everyone else and said he only asked her to lunch before he met me but he asked her twice. I wish I would’ve screenshot the conversation with the date. She kept him friend zoned and she knew about me but that wasn’t the point, the point was he should not have been asking single women out to eat behind my back. I was head over heels in love and it crushed me but there was no remorse on his end. Never in a million years would I stay with a man who was sexually cheating on me, the emotional affair was just as bad if not worse. I’d rather be single than share my man with other women it’s so ridiculous, I can’t imagine Halle Berry putting up with that when she could have any man in the world she wanted. But love is blind. Men are relationship pursuers but women are the relationship maintainers and we always try to make things work even at our own expense.

    There are very attractive people of both sexes that get cheated on. Doesn't mean anything is wrong with them.Sure there are good looking people in relationships with less attractive people that wouldn't cheat. It's all about the lack of morals and ego.

    I just feel so sad for her. I got cheated before by my ex, women after women after women.... it’s depressing. How can other “MEN” be so blinded with their dicks? I don’t really get it. Cisgender and transgender alike give all their best, give all their love to their men. But still nothing. Nothing.

      She was talking about Eric Benet's daughter whom she adopted when she married Eric Benet. I wonder what happened with the adoption when they got divorced. I remember Eric Benet was trying to sue her for child support when they were getting divorced because Halle had adopted her. I don't know if the aoption was finalized though but she referred to the girl as her daughter and seemed close to her.

Halle's ex-husband Eric Benet is retarded for cheating on Halle with another woman LOL. Any man that cheats on Halle with another woman is retarded LOL. That's sad that Halle thought about killing herself because of Eric Benet dealing with another woman.

    Jay-Z got it right when he said in his lyrics never go Eric Benet. These kind of men are clowns ,self-destructive jerks who don't even value themselves similar to the guy who did Sandra Bullock wrong. That's just to show you no matter how much money you have you can't get away from Human Nature, and some people's natures are worse than others.

    And last but not least he just not loving you like that the fact that he had to have so many women proves at and also proves that whatever is wrong with this man happened long before he even started dating women like the fact he might be gay to begin with
