Last month social media users ripped actress Meagan Good to shreds over the revealing navel-plunging gown that she wore to the 2013 BET Awards. While the seductive little get-up would’ve been no big deal for the old Meagan, folks had a hard time seeing the newly married preacher’s wife in a dress so sleek and clingy that it required her to go braless. Although the Think Like A Man Too actress initially responded to her critics, explaining that the dress didn’t make her “any less holy,” she recently followed up during an interview with out sister site, Bossip.com, where she revealed that her husband, DeVon Franklin, being dragged into the controversy is what hurt the most. Check out some of what she had to say below.
On married life:
“Awesome. I love being married. It’s the best thing that I’ve ever done. He’s the best partner, lover, best friend that I could ever have. I’m just really thankful and grateful.”
On the BET dress controversy:
“Even with the stuff with the dress, part of me was upset. Not so much for myself because I’m confident in my decisions and I know that my heart was in the right place when I chose the dress that I wore. I know that there will probably be other people down the line that people don’t like. My relationship with God is tight. I don’t think God is concerned with those kind of things. If he ever was to say, ‘Don’t dress like that,’ then I wouldn’t do it. But I don’t feel that in my spirit, so I don’t feel convicted about it.”
On the public slamming her husband about the dress:
“I hate to see my husband come under fire because people can be so narrow minded in their thought and in their approach. People don’t look at the good stuff you do like going and talking to kids in prison or going and talking at churches or going and talking to youth groups and all of these different things and all of the positivity you’re putting out there to build God’s kingdom. It just breaks my heart that people look for the one negative thing and try to attack you and break down everything that you’ve done.”
