Drea Kelly Brags On New Hubby: ‘I Struck Gold’

“Hollywood Exes” star Drea Kelly is living proof that there certainly is life after divorce. If you caught episode one of the new season, you probably witnessed the curvaceous dancer shock her co-stars by announcing that she’s engaged to be married again! Though some were a little caught off guard by the big news, Ms. Drea seems to be happier than ever.

“Honey, Mr. Man, that’s my boo,” she gushed to Hello Beautiful. “He is just my best friend. That’s the only word I can use to describe him. [He is] someone who, even on my worst day, makes me feel beautiful. I just feel like I’m 100 percent me. He is my biggest cheerleader, the best coach and a dedicated man all in one. He pushes me to be better and there’s nothing that I feel like I can’t do [when I’m with him]. He’s just a wonderful guy. A God-fearing guy is someone I prayed for and he’s funny.”

“There’s a lot of men who say they love God, but a man who fears God, his soul is going to tremble at the thought, ‘this is someone who is my wife,’ and do right by her,” she continued. “A man who fears God, his very first thought is, ‘What am I doing to please God that then is going to please her?’ That’s what I got, I struck gold.”

As for whether or not she was fearful about getting married again after her split from R. Kelly, the outspoken reality star says no way!

“Not at all. I’m not one who gets jaded by another relationship because I believe life happens and if you live your life by being jaded by the experiences of life, you’re going to end up an alcoholic or depressed somewhere. You have to know that life happens. Good, bad or indifferent. You have to keep going. You can’t give up on the thing that God says is our birthright: to love and be loved. When you let go of that, you’ve now given up your power. I refuse to give up my power. Joy and love are two things I’m born with and I can’t give that up over a relationship. Being married again has always been an option for me.”

She also expressed a desire to share some words of encouragement with fellow reality star and new divorcee, Porsha Williams.

“That’s someone I would really like to sit down and meet because I understand what that’s like. I know what it’s like to go through it publicly and to not have that support system when everyone else is giving their opinions on what they think you were or what they think you did,” Drea explained. “I’d just want her to know that there are women in this business who support her that get it and understand it; I think me more than anybody.”

    • T. T.

      LOL! Girl well she always saying “Baby hair don’t care!

      • SunFlower78

        True, LOL

  • Yolanda Harris

    Drea is definitely my favorite on Hollywood Ex’s and she
    deserves every happiness. But she and that guy look ridiculous together. They
    don’t look like they “fit”. But putting aesthetics aside, I pray she doesn’t
    get her heart broken again.

  • Guest

    I hope she’s not moving too fast and missing any red flags. She’s very likable and I want to see her have the happy ending.

    If a fine young guy marries you for the money/come up, he better at least treat you well. I’m going through a divorce. I wish I could afford such a new one. However, I gotta try to find a real relationship. That’s harder! I don’t like that “bi” vibe he’s giving off though. However, if he does his job an treats you like a queen while he’s hustling, then it’s all good.

    • Guest

      I’m annoyed. What makes him look ‘bi’ because he’s a pretty boy? He doesn’t have a rep for fawking every chick in the industry, he isn’t a thug? With the kind of outlook some women have, you wonder why GOOD men are so hard to find.

      • anonymouse

        yeah, he’s so GOOD…..she’s leaving him now.

  • Me

    He is from my hometown and rumor has it he will mess with men and women to get ahead. He drives a white BMW that is claimed to be bought by Tyler Perry. I like her and would hate to see a RKelly “Trapped in the Closet”

    • folamix

      Something about him doesn’t hit me right. But I will give him the benefit of the doubt.

      • T. T.

        I’m glad I’m not the only one that sees there’s something that aint quite right with dude. Like Phaedra says “Something in the buttermilk aint clean”. I hope all of those rumors (and I have heard plenty) are untrue. I really want Drea to be happy because she’s an awesome woman, with that being said I will be happy for her because she’s happy and let them live.

  • NeaJ

    • Brooklyn Marie

      I think she is too old for “baby hair”…IJS LOL

  • guestyguestestguest

    I’m so happy for her. She is my fav on the show.

    • Tiffany Brown
