‘Communication Will Save You Half The Drama:’ Christina Milian Offers Post-Divorce Co-Parenting Advice
Since calling out ex-husband, The-Dream, as a deadbeat dad a few years ago, singer and actress Christina Milian appears to be in a much better place. So much so, that during a recent appearance on “Good Morning America,” the actress and singer offered advice for co-parenting post divorce.
“Take a second and breathe. You know, have the best intentions. Pray on it,” she explained. “I think that communication will save you half the drama. You know, it makes things so much easier. And I think I learned that. I went to therapy early on in my divorce.”
Because she’s in a much better place since overcoming the initial hurdles of co-parenting in the wake of an ugly divorce, Christina says she’s in a position to help others.
“I feel like I’m in a good place, then all the better to just put it out there and hope that it can help someone else. She added, “We all figure it out,” she said. “Sometimes, you just got to take it, take the lesson, and learn, and know that this happened for a reason.”
As for when she feels is an appropriate time to introduce your children to a new love interest, the engaged singer says definitely take your time.
“I think it’s very important to take your time when introducing a new person into your child’s life. You want to make sure this is going to work out so you’re not introducing them to a new person over and over again because you never know who is going to be the one.”
Despite the unique dynamic of their blended family, Christina says four-year-old Violet has a great understanding that she’s deeply loved by both her mother and father—even though they’re not together anymore.
“My motivation at the end of the day was making sure that my daughter had two parents that were in her life consistently, She’s a really smart girl and I think she has a healthy understanding of knowing that mommy and daddy are no longer together but we both love her.”
How cute are these two?
They took their coupledom out in public and in front of cameras for Rihanna’s BFF Melissa Forde’s early birthday party last night. Everyone from Ri Ri and Drake to Christina Milian and J. Cole (with a woman who is NOT his fiancée) and more partied it up at the Supperclub in Hollywood. And though it was Melissa’s big soiree, Rihanna was seen smoking, drinking, dancing, hugging on and talking most of the time with Drake throughout the night in her bra top and pearl-adorned jeans. But Drake did take a picture at the party and post it on his Instagram to wish the b-day girl some love, saying “Happy Early Bday Dollas!!!”
Other famous folks there included Future (which is surprising since Ciara and Rihanna’s crew have past drama, but he did collaborate with Rihanna in the past), producer Mike WiLL Made It and Busta Rhymes. Check out images from their night out, including RiRi and Drake coming and going from the club and all the other famous folks having a ball on the next couple of pages.
Nick Cannon has singlehandedly managed to become the king of over sharing, so we’ve kind of grown to expect this sort of behavior from him. However, his recent off-air interview with Big Boy seemed to go a little far—maybe even too far.
“This is LA, that’s the whole purpose: to have sex with actresses, singers, models,” the married actor told Big Boy after being asked how many celebrity women he’s slept with over the years.
After being asked to name five of the women he’s been with, Nick responded:
“Name five? That’s easy,” Nick matter of factly replied before running down the list.
“Alright, Mariah Carey, Christina Milian, Nicole Scherzinger—I’m trying to name people that people already know. Um, Selita Ebanks.”
After naming four women who he publicly dated and most folks assumed that he had more than likely been intimate with anyway, he wrapped up his list.
“Oh! Kim Kardashian! Bow! This is easy.”
Big Boy, who was clearly thrown off by Nick confessing that he’d been with Kim, expressed that he had absolutely no idea. Nick then proceeded to joke that he probably forgot because of Kim’s high sexual number.
“Yes you did [know] Big. You just forget because there’s been a lot of people since me.”
Speaking of his sexual exploits, Nick also revealed that he and Mariah waited until their wedding night to become intimate.
“[The first time was] on our wedding night, honeymoon style in a house in the Bahamas. That’s a wonderful thing. That’s a real woman right there to make you wait until you get married!”
Before you get to ooh’ing and ahh’ing over his admission, you should probably know that he closed the conversation about their honeymoon night by saying, “I f***ed the sh*t out of her!”

Quiet as it’s kept, Christina Milian really has managed to do a pretty good job at keeping her name and brand out here. She was a cohost for NBC’s “The Voice,” had a role in David E. Talbert’s Baggage Claim, writes for the blog Momtastic, and recently released a song with Lil Wayne. On top of all that the “triple threat” is engaged to a producer named Jas Prince, and most importantly, is raising an adorable four year old daughter with her ex husband, The Dream.
Now, she’s taking it up a notch with a new reality show for E!
According to Deadline, the show will focus around Milian’s family, planning her wedding and balancing her career moves with raising little Violet.
Here’s the press release:
Since she was a teenager, Christina Milian has lived life in the public eye. Hit songs, movie roles and paparazzi focus have come, gone and come back again, but the one constant in her life has always been her family. Whether from her passionate mother and business partner, her strong-willed sisters, her hip-hop producer fiancé or even her adorable 4-year old daughter; everyone has an opinion about the next move in Christina’s career and in her life…and they all are more than happy to voice it! Drama, comedy and touching reality will all be on display in this fiery family docusoap.
The show will be produced by Banca Studio and G3 productions along with Lionsgate Television. Kelsey Grammer and Milian, along with a host of others, including Christina’s mother Carmen Milian will serve as executive producers.
What do you think about a Christina Milian reality tv show? Will you watch?
Violet, the daughter of Christina Milian and producer and artist, The Dream, celebrated her 4th birthday this weekend at the Los Angeles zoo. It seemed like such a fun time. The kids were running around with their faces painted. We love that Violet was Spider Man but also got a Brave doll she seemed to be quite fond of.
The party boasted some celebrities as well. Laura Govan brought her children, Amber Rose brought her son Sebastian Thomaz, aka Bash, Karrueche Tran, fresh off her breakup with Chris Brown was there and Tamar and Vince brought little Logan.
Check out some of the adorable pictures from the party on the following pages.
Sometimes, no matter how much you warn people that what you’re about to say is weird and gross, it is not enough. Christina Milian absolutely made us scratch our heads with something she said on the Bethenny show earlier this week.
The singer and actress appeared on the show and, of course, she chatted it up about her fiancé, music executive Jas Prince. While talking about their relationship and the way they get along, Christina revealed:
“He’s a ton of fun we are like best friends, okay this sounds weird guys don’t get grossed out but we act like brother and sister where we are kind of like catty and annoying with each other…but we get it.”
Yes, it did sound a little weird (especially considering she also said it a few months ago in Vibe Vixen) but saying they’re like best friends? I get it. She called him catty though…that’s an interesting description.
Christina Milian also opened up a little more about the wedding saying that it’ll probably be a fairly big event because Jas has a huge family. But she is watching how big it actually gets because they have a house and bills that still need to be paid. Yes, be honest about it all!
Check out the videos from Christina’s appearance on Bethenny!

On the wedding:
Love is in the air! This year has been full of celebrity engagements and and we can’t wait to see the lavish weddings that are to come. Some engagements were obvious, while others came out of nowhere. Hopefully they won’t all get married in a secret ceremony and share the details later or not at all. Check out these celebrity weddings we can’t wait for in 2014.
Brandy and Ryan Press
Brandy looks like she’s glowing these days with her music executive fiancée Ryan Press. They met in the music industry and became engaged in December of 2012. Before meeting him she had given up on love, but clearly that has changed. Congrats to the happy couple!
We told you in late November that Amber Rose had dropped most of her baby weight and was closer than ever to her goal weight. She showed off her curvaceous figure and encouraged new moms to lose weight at their own pace and do it the natural way. Now Tamera Mowry-Housley is showing off all her hard work and sharing how she was finally able to get back down to the size she was before baby Aden. Here’s what she had to say on Instagram:
Mommy did it!! Lost all my baby weight. Did it with hard work, proportion control, (hint; I even ate what I wanted at times) and with amazing trainers @michaelmyersfit and @msjeanettejenkins! No pills, no surgery, no starvation, just hard work. Thank you for pushing me even when I did not want to work out! But most importantly to love me where I was and every step along the way.
Acclaimed celebrity trainer Jeanette Jenkins also helped her twin Tia slim down after having baby Cree and she’s the one helping to keep Kelly Rowland’s abs right and tight. Black Celebrity Kids also says that Mowry-Housley asked for tips from Christina Milian, who said it took her nine months for her to get back to her teeny, tiny self.
Mowry-Housley went on to share a picture of her figure on Instagram, including her stomach, and her body was approved by baby Aden (busy munching down and NOT watching his figure *winks*). Kudos to her because she looks amazing! Definitely gives inspiration to those trying to get back to body before baby. It takes time, but it’s all worth it in the end!
Being a celebrity means you trade your privacy for fame and fortune, so you’d think stars would be more careful when they’re out cheating on their partners. You just never know when there could be an overly eager and stealthy paparazzi lurking in the bushes — as these famous cheaters found out the hard way.
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson met on the set of the popular Twilight movie back in 2008. Although they didn’t come out as a couple publicly, their relationship was no secret. Fans of the franchise were just as heartbroken as Pattinson when Us Weekly published photos of Stewart and much older director of Snow White and the Huntsmen Rupert Sanders making out like the plane was going down. Stewart and Pattinson tried to move past her transgressions but they eventually split up. Sanders’ ten-year marriage to wife and model Liberty Ross was also a casualty of their extramarital affair. Ross filed for divorce at the top of this year and is seeking spousal support.
