Robinne Lee Offers Gal Pal Gabrielle Union Some Marital Advice
Great news is always sweeter when you have girlfriends who are genuinely happy for you to celebrate with. Actress Robinne Lee is totally elated by the news of her “Being Mary Jane” co-star and homegirl Gabrielle Union’s recent engagement to Dwyane Wade.
“I’m so excited!” Robinne gushed to Vibe Vixen. “I can say now, but we got the email earlier Saturday and she said ‘don’t tell anyone yet, we haven’t released the information yet,’ but we were all screaming and crying in our remote places and texting her like, ‘I can’t believe it, oh my gosh, oh my gosh.'”
She went on to recall where she was when she heard the news.
“I just came out the dentist office and I was standing there in the mall, the tears were streaming down my face, I just feel so happy for her. They’ve been together for a while and she so loves him; she so loves those kids too. They’re just a family. They’ve been a family for a while, so I’m really happy they’re making it official. It’s a good thing.”
Unfortunately, the talk of Gabby’s recent engagement is now stained with news that Dwyane recently fathered a child outside of their relationship, which could be pretty challenging. Thankfully she has married friends who can offer support and advice—including Robinne, who says that communication is key in any marriage.
“We talk about this [building a strong marriage] all the time; this is nothing she hasn’t already heard from me, but communicate, talk, keep the lines of communication open. Learn to trust, be honest, be friends, and support each other. Think of yourselves not so much just as lovers but you’re a team now, you will be doing everything for team Union/Wade.”
