    Once a man cheats ladies please just leave!!! Don't stay trying to fix a man... He is who he is! Let it go because you deserve so much better! Also, the man of your dreams is out there. You just have to start praying for the exact man that you want & you will manifest it. Try it! Remember it's not you, its him!

    This was recorded in 2004, Halle’s daughter was born in 2008. What’s she talking about “being married/having a daughter.”????

    When Eric Benet and David Justice "clapped" when Halle was going through her third divorce, I thought no wonder she's had three husbands. The first 2 were jerks. Which decent man applauds at the demise of another human being? It spoke volumes about who they were and what they were capable of.

    Happy that Halle kept it moving and is still doing her thing today! It was sad to see the pain in her eyes in this interview, and hear the tears on her voice. Like she said, she still loves him. I believe that though they aren’t together, Eric is the love of her life.💔

    Halle if Eric had infected you with H.I.V would you want to save that marriage? Women end your marriage once your husband is unfaithful. Also count your blessing that he has not given you a terminal disease.

    She's not even beautiful. Black Americans are least travelled and have no self confidence in their own racial background as to being beautiful. If they travel to East Africa and other parts of Africa, they'll find the most beautiful women in the world. They have been brainwashed by their white slave master to believe in mix race children to be beautiful. That's why they look up to these people, to just end up being played like this.

  • Yoda Ydyxz
    Yoda Ydyxz Month ago

    Was that her white husband she's talking about? Isn't it funny how black Americans make the most money to the one who doesn't look like their own? Now she's paying millions of dollars child support to the father. Like a slave devoted to his white master. She's just repeating history. The history of plantation.

    What people here don't realize is that one goes outside of the marriage to TRY to deal with the problems in the marriage. IT may not be Halle's fault for Eric's mistake but she played her part in the disintegration of the marriage. It always takes two

    • dtopandgo
      dtopandgo 25 days ago

      @Rahr That's untrue. People who don't know how to deal with conflict cant communicate or are being emotional abused by their partner will go outside. There are always problems on both sides for an affair occur

    • Rahr
      Rahr 25 days ago

      That's false..people step outside their marriages to deal with the wrong things they have carried long before the marriage. A faithful person who gives up leaves..she/ he doesn't cheat. An unfaithful person ALWAYS cheats and finds ways to justify it.

    Oprah seems clueless. She repeats every statement that Halle made as if she wasn't sure if she got it right or something.

    Some men cheat cuz they had their heartbroken by the one he LOVED TRULY so now he goes around f'in every girl in sight to get over it ,or to avoid it from ver taking place ever. Again

    He didn’t have a sickness. He had the opportunity to sleep with lots of women. Whenever a man gets caught sleeping with lots of women they blame sexual addiction. But before they had the opportunity they were okay. What changed? The opportunity gained from fame and fortune which allows you to now have access to lots of beautiful, willing women.
