My Man May Be Triflin’ But He’s Paid: Celebrity Women Who Are About That Life

November 30, 2012 ‐ By Meghan Williams


"Vanessa and Kobe Bryant PF"


The women in this list are partners to men who’ve found success in a variety of industries: business, music, sports, and politics. Though the source of their men’s money may differ, the reasons for these women’s refusal to give up on their relationships are mostly the same – which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It’s reasonable that someone might think twice about ending a relationship for fear of losing a standard of life, but shouldn’t there be a point at which it gets to be too much, regardless of what stands to be lost?

Here are fifteen women who have ignored the cheating and accepted the reality that their men will never commit – all in favor of keeping their fame, money and lifestyle. Would you stay if you were in their positions?

    They say everyone has a price tag…..but as for me, yes it all sounds great, the fame, fortune, status….but at some point you get treat as the product you are…

    Its depends on whether I’m in it for the money only, or both love and money. If its the latter, trust a sister, he would have already put a ring on it, so I’d have left him from the very first transgression and use that green as consolation. If its just about the money, who cares, he could be with a man too..

    “She gon’ be rockin’ chinchilla coats If I let you go. Getting the house off the coast

    If I let you go. She gon’ take everything I own If I let you go” Whoever wrote that song made it in honor of every rich man’s wife.

    Kathie Lee Gifford was the side chic to Frank while he was married to his first wife. I think what comes around goes around. Most of these women if not all of them are in it for the money so they deserve the messes they have!!! Sorry but my sympathy is for the women of this world who try with an open heart and get messed over and deserve better!!!!

    • Anesha Johnson

      I can’t stand Kathy….so f*cking annoying and hypocritical

  • Diana

    you guys forgot Rihanna and Chris Brown but I guess their relationship might be a bit too immature for this list

  • scandalous7

    money, fame, and fortune is hard to refuse.

    • Anesha Johnson

      But at the end of the day you’re still a doormat….ijs…nothing directed at you……

  • Fiedah

    WTF does “about that life” mean? Doing anything to be able to have red bottoms and Bentleys? I don’t get it. So it’s okay if he gives you AIDS just as long as you look good going to the dr’s office?

    • CarlaKah

      I just died!!! LOL

  • PhD.

    It is what it is..dirty pigeons still fly as high as doves. Triffiling but…not everyone can read.

  • Why do you have Naomi Campbell on there? She’s the mistress.

    • Anesha Johnson

      Beautiful pic…..Naomi is just a mess all the around….so sad….

    Chicks in the hood stay with Raquan and them for a lot less than what these celeb have.Ray Ray had 3 kids on you,no job and ebt card that doesn’t swipe from.time to time but your a&# ain’t going anywhere.

  • As long as they aren’t deluded on what it is. He gets some pretty woman to bare his children and to place house with and gets to do who he wants when he wants and know his wifey ain’t going anywhere as long as he keeps the diamond rings and lifestyle flowing. I mean if they like it I love it.

  • heyheynow

  • candice fox

    • ConfusedByThis


  • realadulttalk

    I kinda died inside at Vanessa Long–ain’t enough money in the world for me to deal with that.

  • JustSayin

    Are you really surprised? There are men RIGHT NOW out there broke, useless, Bummy and just all around BOOTSIE but have faithful wives! Why these women any exception? Cuz it’s in the news? Ha! They are living the life right now. Their job is to love their husbands… Keep those secrets and look pretty. Nannies, maids, cooks, security and business professionals handle the rest. They just turn a side eye when their husbands hire “professional” help when it comes to that “other” department.

  • sheena

    Hey if you have to deal with this crap from a regular $15/hour, 9-5 boyfriend, what’s now oh so wrong for these women to stay with their mega, ultra rich husbands. shhoooooottt……

    • Anesha Johnson

      I’ll tell you why it’s so wrong because it sends a terrible message to their kids, “hey it’s ok to get treated like shyt, as long as he’s rich he can cheat on you, infect you, beat you, abuse you…whatever…..
