I heard this too. I was talking to two acquaintances of mine about a year ago and they both said she was "bat s*ht crazy," but I'm not sure why they thought that.

And as for David Justice, wasn't he cheating on her with hookers? Um, gee, I'd be jealous too.

HB's been through a LOT with men. I can see how it would have an impact on her. But I don't know if she's crazy. I wouldn't know though.

She said:
I'm much clearer about what a relationship is, which is why I will never marry again. Gabriel and I have a great partnership and a lovely daughter. But I once was stupid enough to say, in a previous relationship, 'I'm going to be with this person for ever,' and realized, as I grew, that I don't know if for ever is possible.

Gabriel and I don't look at our relationship in terms of forever, we look at it as right here today. And today means being the best people we can be, the best parents we can be. It's wonderful, but neither one of us feels the need to attach ourselves to each other for life -- because it may not be that."
i've heard her say she won't ever marry again too. i understand after being burned twice. i do feel a little sad for the bolded statement. it may not last forever but it seems like you wouldn't ever feel just comfortable like you could relax if you both are approaching as "this may not be forever". i'm sure what i'm trying to say isn't clear. nothing is promised even with marriage, even with marriage and kids but to go into it with the mindset of this is all sort of a temp situation seems less settling. it reminds me of a great book i read awhile back called "buyers, renters, freeloaders"

i don't think infidelity is the cause of their break-up although it was for her marriage with eric benet.

Not necessarily. Some people really don't see romantic relationships as having to last forever. A divorce/ending isn't seen by all as a failure, just as a stage of life that has ended and it's on to the next stage. I'm not saying that it's stupid to stay with one person forever. If it works out that way, and only if it's actually happy (because I know way to many married-until-death people who have always been miserable or, at best, resigned, so longevity in a marriage doesn't impress me at all), then that's great. But not everyone needs to believe that their working towards forever in order to feel happy, fulfilled, and comfortable.

my mother wasn't married to my father and my child's father never married me. i think that sucks and still to this day i feel less valued than the children my father had with his wife even though they divorced.


I think marriage is important too...for the kids. The stigma of illegitimacy is mostly gone, but it's not all the way gone.

I completely understand her statement. I mean, if you go through two failed, highly publicized marriages that you thought in each "This is going to last FOREVER!"...you (generally speaking) may start feeling that way too.

Hate to say it but I heard these same things. I think Halle has had bad luck with men because she chooses poorly or has in the past... I saw her on The Actors Studio Guild tv show or whatever it's called and she explained how she watched her father beat the pure crap out of her mom and her sister almost everyday but for some reason he never hit her and she never understood why.

I mean the disaster with David Justice.. she had to get a restraining order on him..she claimed he bust the windows in the house and terrorized her.. among other things... Wesley Snipes hit her and made her deaf in one ear, and Eric Benet cheated on her.

So I think it's a combination.. she's a little off and because of her childhood and as a result she's made poor choices in men.

2 of the men that she dated that seem stable hinted as much in interviews I saw them in. One was Shemar Moore and thee other was Michael Ealy. They both seemed to try to be nice about it without coming right out and saying, "Baby-girl is CRAZY". But they definitely gave that impression.

I think with this younger man she feels a little more in control. Some of other men she's dated that we know of are sort of the type you can imagine always wanting to have the upper hand in a relationship.

And I think she felt ready to be a mother and felt confident finally. She's older, she's definitely a Hollyweird A-lister, and I think she really is "feeling" herself these days.. I mean at least that's how she comes off in interviews now. Given, that interview she gave to Tavis Smiley.. I couldn't help but thinking, "Halle is as nutty as a fruitcake.. and a drama queen".

I know.. I shouldn't say that.. in any event if she is preggers... good for her.

The local morning news repeated that she's 3 months pg. That the first baby was born via IVF and this one was conceived through artificial insemination. They didn't cite their sources other than mentioning the internet is abuzz.

I think it's so awful that the media, and the public in general, feel that this type of information is any of their business, celebrity or not. Whether someone is pregnant, how they conceived, whether they've gained weight.... all that is private unless they choose to go public, for a celebrity as much as anyone else. Why should they have to deny rumours, offer other explanations for why their stomachs don' t look flat, or any of the rest of it? Isn't part of choice for women being free from this type of BS? Because you have one or more kids already/are in a relationship/have talked about wanting kids/aren't pin-thin/see a doctor/wear a baggy top or carry a big purse you must be "suspected" of being pregnant at any given time? It seems this obsession with celebrity pregnancies only cropped up in the last few years, and enough already - women in general do tend to get pregnant - what is the big deal about when and how? (And people pull this crap on regular women too, and it's annoying.)

I agree. And if she is trying to conceive and is having trouble, there's nothing worse than having strangers speculate on the status of your uterus.

I didn't realize that Wile already posted it. Is is that me, but Halle doesn't seem crazy? Although she has seem insecure and always in search of an identity and figuring out who she is in the past.
