“I Had To Learn To Stop Dating Little Boys” Vivica Fox Talks Love Life And Missing Motherhood With Oprah
This Sunday, Vivica Fox will sit down with Oprah for her “Where Are They Now” episode. Vivica’s a charismatic lady so you know she and Oprah gelled well together. Plus, Oprah’s able to ask questions most of us can’t get away with. Anyway, during their sit-down she asked Vivica did she ever regret the fact that she didn’t become a mother and her answer was very candid and a bit sad, actually. See what she had to say.
Oprah: Do you ever miss being a mother?
Vivica: Of course.
Vivica: If that’s the biggest regret of my life that I have was that I didn’t have a child but I’m a good godmother.
Vivica: Oh yeah, I bring the best gifts and throw the best parties. If that’s the one thing that I have a regret about, that would be that I didn’t have a child.
Oprah: I didn’t expect that answer.
Vivica: Yeah, that’s the only thing. I’ll never forget seeing Halle on the red carpet and she’d just had Nahla. And I said, “Wow she so beautiful.” She said, “Vivica if I knew then what I know now I would’ve had 5 of them.” And she said the joy I see in her eyes is just like no other high that I’ve ever experienced so I don’t get to see my eyes in a child.
Wow. It’s so beautiful but also really unfortunate for Vivica, considering it seems like it was clearly something she wanted for her life.
But on a lighter, much more hilarious note, Oprah asked her one of her staple questions: what do you know now that you wish you knew then. I would think Vivica would speak about something in her career. Instead, the conversation veered off into her love life and how she used to get completely distracted by a six pack and a smile.
Oprah: What do you know now, that you wish you had known then that could have saved you so much time?
Vivica: Just to have a little bit more patience. Not to basically fall in love so quick. I have a tendency– I would jump into the shallow end of the pool head first. Now I’m a little bit more cautious with getting to know people, especially for my love life.
Oprah: So what are you now looking for that you weren’t then?
Vivica: Gosh, a man more than anything else. I had to learn to stop dating little boys. I had to learn to stop falling in love with a six pack and a smile, honey. It used to just be the curse for your girl. I did honey. if a six pack and smile came my way, I was just the worse.
I can’t help but think of at least a couple of men she’s referencing. *Calls 50 Cent and Vivica’s former fiancé Omar “Slimm” White to mind.* I know she’s happy to be out of that phase…
You can watch these clips from the interview in the videos on the next page.
If it’s one thing Kenya Moore knows how to do, it’s make new enemies. As you know it’s been reported that the RHOA star is on the upcoming season of “Celebrity Apprentice” and though the show has yet to air, she’s already found herself in trouble with her competition. I don’t know what Kenya thought but apparently she set her sights on taking down fellow contestant Vivica Fox. Lawd why? Everyone knows that Vivica is as sweet as can be until you take her there. And then the hood comes out.
Apparently Kenya didn’t get the memo or was still going to test the waters because on the show she came for the veteran actress in the most juvenile way imaginable. She stole her phone.
And she stole it to tweet this message.
“This menopause id [sic] killing me I can’t think straight, im acting a damn fool half the time 50 just isn’t sexy.”
The tweet was deleted but according to the Daily Mail, all hell broke loose on set afterward.
“It was World War III on that set. Vivica cursed her out so bad that the entire set was speechless, even Kenya.”
And apparently Trump didn’t take too well to Kenya’s antics. Her firing was more severe than usual as he told her, “You’re the most evil woman I’ve ever met in my life.”
Sadly, Vivica wasn’t the only person Kenya tried to bait. She also antagonized Keisha Knight Pulliam. Smh. Who beefs with Rudy?!
Vivica’s phone was stolen last month. But in response to the news coming out recently, Fox posted this image on her Instagram.
For those who aren’t familiar, it’s a shot from her movie Two Can Play That Game.
She included the caption: “REALLY? The truth will be revealed very soon TRICK!! I’m just saying! MY PHONE WAS STOLEN BY U!!”
Lawd… It’s a shame black women act like this on television but someone like Kenya brings the worst out of people. And if she’s going to act a fool, I hope the cameras caught Vivica checking her.
As of now the official cast of this season as well as an air date for “Celebrity Apprentice” has yet to be announced but please believe we’ll keep you posted.
Good news! After so much success catching up with the underrated and often off-the-radar music stars in music with Unsung, TV One is about to bring us Unsung Hollywood. Same format, but giving us a back story on all the ups and downs of the careers and lives of black folks we love from TV and film. They already have episodes with Pam Grier, Kadeem Hardison and Robin Harris (to name a few) on deck, but we couldn’t help but throw a few options of stars they need to also profile out there. Check ‘em out!
Talk about a beauty. Dorothy Dandridge was the first African-American woman to be nominated for an Academy Award, but the road to getting the nomination, and how life went for her after the fact wasn’t easy. Dandridge had the type of story that (if any of her colleagues are still alive to tell it) had everything from financial struggles (accountants swindled her out of thousands and she owed back taxes), nervous breakdowns, affairs, career explosions and moments that stalled, and the reinvention of her career later in life. She only lived 42 years, but her life and career has been one that has influenced everyone from Halle Berry, Cicely Tyson and more.
Vivica Fox is newly single and announced, at 49, that she’s done dating men under 30. We think she could be on to something because we’ve got a list of gripes about our 20-year-old exes that’s a mile long. Here are the reasons we say “pass” when it comes to dating men under 30.
Have you ever watched a black film or TV show and thought to yourself, “Dang! He/she stays in a movie!”? It’s not that they’re the greatest actors of all time, but these people were just very good at getting in where they could fit in for a check. Whether they’re playing an aunt, a mom, a dad, an ogled over love interest or a shady character, these people have had some type of role, big or small in most of the movies we’ve tuned in to over the years. I dare you to look at this list and say you don’t agree.
We all love our classic films. We love to see a good story beautifully told through the vehicle of film. But every now and then, it’s alright to…indulge in something that’s a little less high brow and a little more ridiculous. That film is Booty Call. You probably haven’t seen it since it was released in 1997, so to refresh your memory, check out the trailer below.
Now that you’ve been updated on the storyline, let’s get into the behind the scenes secrets.
If you’re into playing games, you might have seen a bit of yourself in the 2001 film, Two Can Play That Game. It was all about the foolish things men and women do in order to keep the upper hand, maintain their sense of power in a relationship. That’s what Shante Smith (Vivica Fox) was doing when she noticed that her man Keith (Morris Chestnut) was “acting up.” You remember the whirlwind journey these two went through; and if you paid attention you might have even picked up on the take away message. You remember it all but we bet you don’t know these behind the scenes secrets. Check them out.
Some women seem incapable of functioning without a man at their side. You know the type: the ones who are always in a relationship, never single, and never trying to be single. I’m not going to say outright that this is a sign of insecurity, but I’ve always been one to believe that time alone is good for us ladies, especially if we’ve just gotten out of a relationship. Though some women may agree with me, clearly these 15 do not. And while their levels of desperation may vary, they all seem just as intent on being in a relationship, no matter the cost.
Is there a waiting list to date this woman because I can hardly remember a time when Jennifer Lopez was ever single. She had married and divorced actor Ojani Noa by 1998, then dated and broke up with Diddy by 2001, married second husband Cris Judd in 2001, but before divorcing him became romantically involved with Ben Affleck in 2002 only to be dumped by him before their supposed wedding, then she married (2004) and divorced (2011) Marc Anthony before finally meeting current boyfriend Casper Smart in 2011… and these are just the men we know about!
J.Lo is fabulous and all, but if things go south with Casper she may want to take a moment to be single and just breathe, or something.
While the GOP is working hard to keep Susan Rice, currently the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, from becoming the next Secretary of State, other groups are working even harder to get her approved.
A diverse group of African-American women leaders joined together today to show their support for Rice. The group teamed up with the Black Women’s Roundtable (BWR), an intergenerational civic engagement network of the National Coalition on Black Civic Participation, to launch a campaign to “express their unequivocal support of United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice and to encourage Senate and congressional leaders to treat the esteemed public servant with respect,” announced a press release.
“It is important that women from all walks of life come together to push back when we see someone being treated unfairly not because of her work, but due to politics. Ambassador Rice has had a stellar career and has served this country with great dignity. We can not sit back and allow those who long for the days when white male privilege persisted in America to ruin the Ambassador´s reputation,” Melanie L. Campbell, president of the National Coalition and convener of BWR, tells us via email. “It’s a new day and Black, White, Caribbean, Asian and Latino women have come together to say, not on our watch! We are demanding that Ambassador Rice be given the proper respect appropriate for any other Cabinet-level member of a sitting Administration.”
The group of high-profile women signed an open letter to the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. Among those who signed are: Ingrid Saunders Jones, chair, National Council of Negro Women; former Essence editor Susan L. Taylor, CEO and founder, National CARES Mentoring Movement; actress Vivica A. Fox, president, Foxy Brown Productions; and Dr. Natalia A. Francisco, founder and executive director, Women of Worth & Worship, LLC.
According to the press release, the letter sent to Senate intelligence Committee Chairman Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and committee ranking member Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) said that Ambassador Rice “has excelled throughout her career both in the public and private sector. Her commitment to international peace and the equality of all people should be heralded, not summarily dismissed for political gain and expedience.”
The letter even addressed the Benghazi incident as it pointed out, “While some members of the Senate have pushed back on their rush to judgment in the press regarding Ambassador Rice’s prepared remarks on the attack in Benghazi, we feel that the public integrity and reputation of this brilliant woman, who serves our country with great dignity, has been unfairly and unnecessarily attacked.”
Rice also got a major show of support from the incoming Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) chair Rep. Marcia Fudge, who at a recent press conference vigorously defended Rice’s qualification and accused the GOP of being both racist and sexist. She stated, “women and minorities tend to be the target of Republican attacks when they lose to Democrats,” reports The Loop 21.
In addition to the letter there is an online petition in support of Ambassador Rice. The twitter hashtag is #SupportAmbassadorRice.
What do you think of the Susan Rice backlash?

Another day, another dose of shade for Stacey Dash…
Ever since Stacey decided to publicly announce her support for presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Twitter, she’s been ripped to shreds, especially from the black community. The backlash was immediate with even a few celebs like Talib Kweli to Samuel L. Jackson tweeting their reactions. ‘Wait, did Stacey Dash Really endorse Romney today?! REALLY????! Is she CRA………..??!’, tweeted Samuel L. Jackson who recently starred in an ad campaign for President Obama.
The Grio recently caught up with fellow actress Vivica A. Fox and when she was asked what her reaction was to Stacey’s Mitt Romney support as well as if she thought the backlash was fair, she calmly ripped her for taking a photo in a ‘Baywatch’ swimsuit as a way to show her support
