Vivica A. Fox Tears Up When Speaking On Her Ex “Slim” And Wanting To Have A Child At 49
We told you yesterday about Vivica A. Fox speaking to BET about her dating standards, and how she won’t date a man 30 and under after splitting with her tenderoni fiancé Omar “Slim” White (the two had a 20 year age difference). But there seems to be a deeper story behind their split, which Viv opened up about with Bethenny Frankel on her talk show. She said that she realized she was trying to marry him and move down to Atlanta so that she could have a family, but she truly wasn’t happy.
“We broke up three months before the wedding. Kids wasn’t the issue at all. It was just that it wasn’t right. I had to be honest with myself, I wasn’t happy anymore. He’s a great guy but he just wasn’t for me. My family, my sister, my brother–my brother lives in Atlanta, and I was about to move my life to Atlanta and they could see that I wasn’t happy. They said, ‘You’re just doing this because you want to have a child and you want to move closer back East to the family.’ My family lives back East. I just had been for the last 20 years so focused on Vivica and my career and what was the next job and what was the next thing I could do to…[breaks down]
You know what I mean? I wanted to do something different. I wanted to have a child. And I wanted to be closer to my family.
You get to that point too where you’re like, you can’t [have a child] and then you get a lot of people who are like, ‘Oh well, you can adopt’ and maybe I can. But I did want to try to have my own child. Because I’ll never forget when I saw Halle Berry one time and how happy I saw that she was with Nahla. I said, ‘Nahla has brought you so much joy.’ And Halle said, Vivica I wish I had did it years ago, I would have had five.”
That’s really deep, and we hope that Viv does try her hand at adoption, because it’s obvious that she wants to be a mom and has enough love to share with a child. Check out that short aspect of her interview with Frankel below and let us know what think.
