Actress Zoe Saldana is not holding back any feelings towards her ex-boyfriends. In the August issue of Marie Claire Saldana opens up about current and past relationships.
Zoe is currently married to Italian artist Marco Perego but was once in two high profile relationships in the past, one with businessman Keith Brittion which lasted 11 years and a on again off again relationship with actor Bradley Cooper.
Advising others not to settle, revealing she had to walk away from a relationship where she was disrespected by an ex and reminded us that past flames don’t belong in our lives they are an “ex” for a reason. (Aint that the truth !).
Catch highlights from the interview
On her relationship with husband Marco Perego: “I don’t do the ABCs. I do what my heart says, what my heart feels. So from the moment
I met my husband, we were together. We knew.”
On the biggest thing she’s learned about relationships: “Not to settle. If you’re not happy with a person, leave. And wait until you find that one person who makes you feel good about yourself every single day and is not expecting you to change, but to grow.”
On disrespect: “I have been in relationships where a man has disrespected me, and I don’t need to be friends with that man anymore. I don’t want to be the one going, ‘I’m cool, because I’m friends with all my exes.’ There’s a reason why you’re called an ex. I crossed you off my list. Moving on. You cross a line, you need to know that you’re going to walk this earth knowing that there’s an individual who has no respect for you.”
On dream roles: “I would love to play Nefertiti or Cleopatra or the Queen of Sheba. We preserve more male history than we do female. We have to preserve it. No more complaining. We have to do it.”
On growing up in Dominican Republic: “I had many female bullies growing up who wanted us to be submissive and to follow and to kiss ass, and that’s the last thing any Saldana will ever do, honestly.”

Beyonce told y’all “if you like it then you should of put a ring on it,” and that’s exactly what Kevin Durant did. Back in 2011 Kevin Durant tweeted that he wanted a girlfriend that played basketball and hinted at Monica Wright. 2 years later Kevin Durant took Beyonce’s advice. Just weeks after singing a deal with Roc Nation Sports, Kevin proposed to his girlfriend Monica Wright. The funny thing about this story is fans of the movie Love and Basketball know that Nia Long played leading lady Monica Wright in the movie and ironically Kevin Durant’s wife not only plays basketball but has the same exact name. A true Love & Basketball moment. Congrats you too !
Before Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa had a baby they had been teasing fans with the idea of a wedding. Back in May, Amber took her Instagram and uploaded a picture of the bottom of her gown with a caption that read “Can you guess which dress I’m getting fitted for today?” but the couple wanted to wait until baby “Bash” was born to officially have a wedding. Well the two made it official yesterday and tied the knot in a small, courthouse ceremony. Amber Rose tweeted “yay me and my baby are officially married!!!” and posted the above picture on Instagram. Wiz also shared his excitement on his Twitter, tweeting “Me and Amber got married today. Weddings this fall. Thought I’d let yall know.” Congrats to them !
Im about ready to grab a mic and snatch me up a baller ! Seems like R&B singers and basketball players go hand and hand. Monica, Tamia, LeToya Luckett, Keyshia Cole and recently Keri Hilson are not the only one with baller boos. Singer Elle Varner and Knicks guard Imam Shumpert seem to be more than just friends.
Last year, Iman posted a photo of the two on his Instagram with the caption, “@ellevarner <—-talk about a good friend! Gotta love her!!” Elle added more fuel to the fire recently by posting a filtered-photo of two hands in the sand on her Instagram. Iman also uploaded a clip on his Vine account, with the caption “Found me a mermaid…and brought her to #Aruba.” Sand+Aruba hmmm! Sounds like the two were on the beach in Aruba together if you ask me *side eyes*.
Either way I am happy for the two, they make a cute couple ! Go girl !

It seems like this messy divorce lasted longer than their 72 day marriage did and in the end NOTHING got accomplished, well at least on Krim Humphries half it didn’t.
Kimyee (Kim Kardashian and Kanye West) can now live happily ever after, today the judge dissolved the marriage between Kim and Kris which took 2 years to do. Kris tried to get $7 mill out the deal but he ended up walking away NOTHING.
According to reports this whole ordeal has cost them about $300,000 each in attorney fees and lets not forget about the multi-million dollar wedding. Kris had many attempts to reveal that the wedding was nothing more than for publicity for Kim’s reality show but all of them fell onto deaf ears.
This is the second time Kimyee has filed for divorce. Do you think hear wedding bells for Kim and Kanye in the near future ? Third time is the charm, right ?
