“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.”
