You Haven’t Learned Yet?! 15 Celebrities Who Keep Chasing After What’s No Good For Them

December 19, 2012 ‐ By Meg Butler

What’s that saying, “Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.” These celebrities need to take a good, long, hard look at what that quote really means. There isn’t a person walking this earth who hasn’t gotten involved with one — maybe even two — men or women who they knew were no good from the start but just couldn’t resist the temptation to see what that be like. We can give that a pass. But when you keep chasing after the same thing — even the same person in some cases — that has left you heartbroken and worse off than you were when you met them we have no choice but to consider you insane and in need of a (wo)mantervention. Here are 15 celebs who just can’t stop chasing after what’s no good for them.

Stuck on Stupid: Fantasia Barrino

It hurts me to see Fantasia so thirsty for Antwon Cook. She is really trying to make this work even though he let her be the other woman, dumped her, almost drove her to suicide, and then moved on to Kendra James. Now they’re back together and the beef she recently had with his family doesn’t bid well for their future success. Good luck chasing that dream girl.

  • it aint always the “D”. if that was what they were after, they would get it and scoot. these women are foolishly trying to change these men who clearly like the things they are doing. get the “D” and put them out afterwards!!

  • ohemma afia

    comments like this are so annoying… this isnt the wall street journal or the new york times.. this is an entertainment blog… get over urself… if ur looking for “relevant articles” read the GRIO or the Huffington post black voices…lets get real… are u going to call out the editors of People magazine, US weekly, Cosmo etc… for their journalist to reflect “real” journalism….NO.. this site is no different…

  • Star

    uh…lol…pause…while glancing at the title of this article….when did Kaylin Garcia become a celebrity??? o_0

  • Suchalady

    I cringe when I her people call Joe and Kaylin cute or say they want a relationship like theirs. They are soooo hungry for attention with their instagram relationship. It’s gross & sad.

  • Manifesto

    More copy edit fails courtesy of MN: Draya Michele has only one “L.”

  • Joy

    This is so quite entertaining and funny.

  • Troker

    You ‘journalists’ need to be more responsible and stop being so slanderous in what you write. Christina Milian got with the Dream way after he was with Nivea. He still a dirty dog but get sh*t straight.

  • I dunno about Halle. Yeah she *seems* to have bad luck with men, but c’mon… what’s the common denominator in that equation? Didn’t Halle also blame the *two* people she hit with her car in separate hit-and-run accidents? And claim to be haunted by the ghost of Dorothy Dandridge? Halle is cray cray; and I would take anything she says with a million grains of salt. For example, not for one second buying that Gabriel Aubrey–who dated her for years (and is Canadian for goodness sakes–ever met a racist Canadian??)–is a racist. Halle reminds me of my crazy aunt who always claims that a guy was “gay” when they break up. Funny how your exes always have the same problem wrong with them *after* your relationship ends….

    • IllyPhilly

      Bwhahahaha. I am mad I missed this article when it was new. I’m dying though.

  • Domechecka!!!

    You guys need to check your facts dummies…. Christina Milian starting dating The Nightmare aka The Dream in 2009, Nivea and The Dream were officially divorced in 2007. It would have been more fitting to have Alicia Keys and Swizz Beaks on this list seeing as he cheated on his wife Mashonda (See they were actually married, until X-Tina and the Nightmare).

  • heyheynow

    I didn’t know halle’s ex was racist and joe budden lord he needs help…I mean this list is pretty good I don’t know why people are saying it’s shade..but Rihanna should be up here clearly come on now don’t tell me the author is rihannanavy…lol

  • Amarossa

    so what if Ciara’s man don’t admit he’s dicking her down??? Jay-Z and Beyonce hid their relationship for years and still got married, so what’s your point? Silly article, this.

    • heyheynow

      hold hold don’t put beyonce and jayz in that category…b and jay certainly had hints that they were dating one another in songs and people saw them out,,,it’s rumored that ciara is dating dwight yet we see them no where she already had bowwow diss her and 50 like she just need to chill with dating athletes and rappers just get you a regualar man honey

  • chris brown and rihanna……freakin idiots……..just reinforcing the modern day relationship checklist……guy has anger issues along with pyschological problems……girl has no self esteem……guy not as in love as girl, girl fell in love in less than a year……guy is rumored to do drugs, girl probably does the stuff too (we’ll find out on Behind The Music in 10 years)……couple gets married…….couple have kids…..couple gets divorced after a year or 2. PATHETIC. Anybody who thinks they are CUTE are sick and ignorant.

    • curlyk

      I agree. The behind the music for them is going to be SO good lol. Probably the E! True Hollywood story too. I just hope they aren’t dead or completely strung out by the time it airs =/

      • IllyPhilly

        CTFU!!! You know it’ll be three baby mamas by then. but Rihanna will be proud to be the one engaged to him for five years.

    • i can’t buy the whole “low self esteem” when talking about Rihanna. she;s young, beautiful, and rich, and has millions of fans….she is very happy with herself. her and Chris love drama, just like any other young adult. they will grow out of it. just like we all did.

      • OMGItsHer

        Marylin Monroe was also beautiful, young, rich and had many of fans. She was still extremely depressed with low self esteem…..sooo that doesn’t count.

  • Bri

    Rihanna should have made this list.

    • KJ23

      Drake should have too.

  • curlyk

    but what if Cassie doesn’t want a ring? O_o every woman’s dream and goal isn’t to get married and have kids. Just because hes older than her doesnt mean shes dumb for being with him. And why weren’t Rihanna and Chris Brown on here if you were going for an accurate list? I love her but shes thirsty for him while he isn’t checking for her half the time. He’s thirsty for Karrueche while she isn’t checking for HIM at all. And if she is, its done privately. I’m confused. Some of these couples or former couples make sense to be on here. But a lot of this list is judgement in my opinion

    • sabrina

      Agreed. I think some of these were actually a tad bit rude and even mean — especially with the name calling. And some of the things stated as fact were never necessarily proven…like Laura Govan sleeping with Shaq. That should still be cited as “allegedly.”

    • Suchalady

      Chris isn’t checking for Rihanna but he’s checking for Karrueche? All sorts of wrong. He dropped Karruche publicly for Rihanna, per his own words. She’s the one that won’t let it go. She’s so thirsty that she’s still telling her friends (Milian) that that’s her boyfriend.
