If you weren’t aware, actress Vivica A. Fox is the star of a show called Face the Truth TV on CBS. Along with a team of experts (including psychologist Dr. Judy Ho, Judge Mary Chrzanowski, attorney Areva Martin and life coach Rosie Mercado), Fox helps real people deal with real problems by providing possible solutions — also with the input of a the audience watching at home.
During an episode this week, Fox actually opened up about her personal dating issues while helping a guest with their own. She admitted that she used to prioritize the wrong things when she was trying to figure out who to date, and years later, the 54-year-old actress is attempting to do things differently. Among the things she’s looking for in the next man who comes into her life, that includes a man with a good sense of humor, someone who makes her feel butterflies, someone who likes to have fun — and oh yeah, a man who has his own money.
“To be honest with you, for the longest time, I used to be like girlfriend, just one ol’ lustful little thing. A six-pack and a smile used to get me every time, you know,” she said. “But now I’ve grown up and honestly I am looking for a good partner. I need someone that’s gonna make me laugh. I need someone that’s gonna make me smile. I want a man that when I see him, he gives me butterflies. That every time his number pops up on my phone that I get excited to see him.”
When a co-host also threw in “good sex!” as a must, Fox said while that is important, she’s looking for a deeper connection.
“I’m going to take the time to get to know some person because before I used to put sex before getting to know a person and trust me…I’m single,” she said. “So now I’m taking the time to get to know someone that loves to travel, that loves sports, that loves to have fun, that enjoys life, and got his own money.”
Fox may be single now, but she’s been married before. She wed singer Christopher Harvest in 1998, but they divorced in 2002. She was also engaged to club promoter Omar “Slim” White for 10 months before they broke things off. But Fox admits that out of all of the men she’s dated over the years, 50 Cent, interesting enough, was the one who got away (even though they’ve publicly feuded for years).
