WCW: 15 Haute Mama Paula Patton Moments
Paula Patton is buzzing around discussing her divorce from Robin Thicke and how she actually just now feels like she’s becoming ‘an adult woman’ as she states she went from living at home to moving in with Robin Thicke at a very young age. But this 39-year-old mom is pushing life in high gear as she prepares for the release of her new film Warcraft and upcoming documentary Women Hyphenated.
The haute mama spoke with The Meredith Vieira Show and had this to say about her new phase in life:
Meredith: We are back with Paula Patton and you went through a very public breakup with Robin Thicke and everybody wants to know how you’re doing?
Paula: You know I’m doing really well. It’s been a long year and a lot of challenges but I’ve grown quite a bit and just getting used to change.
Meredith: That’s the hardest thing of all just accepting the new reality.
Paula: Absolutely it is and embrace it and just be thankful for everything I do have. I live in a place of gratitude and growing up in many ways I think, I moved from my parents hosue to moving in with Robin, and now I’m like becoming an adult at this old age. I’m really like a real woman now.
Meredith: Kids sometimes say things that really get to you and your son said something to you recently that I think a lot of working moms have had said to them and it’s a tough one. What did he say to you?
Paula: It is true. Really, I took a lot of time off to be with him and then I had to pack for a trip because I had to go to work and he said, ‘Mommy I don’t want you to go to work.’ It’s the challenge of being a working mother and it’s the first time he ever said that to me because I did work when he was a baby but now he is more aware of everything, so what are you going to do? It’s sort of the trials and tribulations of being a woman. Right?
Meredith: After you said that and then walked away.
Paula: I cried. I called my mom and I cried and she said, ‘Darling, I had to work. We all hear that.’
