Yeah, Eric needs to be careful.
Not sure if the sick baby Prince had with her and died was from his or her genes.
He needs to find out b4 he bust up in dat.
Problem with folks today they see a big butt and a smile and don't consider the medical history. Not only do you have to think of STD's but what kinda problems the family has. sickle cell anemia, downs syndrom, cancer, depression, bipolar disorder, etc.
Good for them. Just because their high profile marriages didn't work does not mean they dropped dead or are undeserving of finding happiness with someone else. Everybody is somebody's ex, whether you're famous or not.
BAsed on what Eric said, he and Halle were having problems before he stepped out. He knew it was wrong, but it was no different from other troubled couples--except they were famous. He's still hot, so he will always have pretty women hollering at him. (Mayte is Puerto Rican, for previous posters).
And Halle is pretty, but something's not right about her.
yal can call that man a whore, sex fiend or whatever but I'm with Oprah on this one, what the fuk did Halle expect if she ain't giving that man none? talkin bout she tired all the time, hell he go get it from somewhere...Halle wasn't giving that man none at all, and here he is laying every night next to the sexiest woman in America and she won't budge, shyt I'll go to the next best thing too!
Dude had a sex addiction. He went into treatment for it, several times...he talked about it openly!
That didn't have anything to do with "Halle not giving him some"...would you give him some after he's been running around sticking it to every nasty ho out there? I wouldn't.
To blame Halle for his sex addiction is like blaming a bartender for another person's alcoholism- That's just plain IGNORANT.
calm down tmarti30 it ain't that serious for one, and from what she stated on Oprah she didn't make it out like that was the reason, she stated he wanted to do it all the time but she was just tired, and like Oprah stated well what do you expect for your man to do? but yes I am aware of his sex addiction, but even if he didn't have one Halle don't like to have sex point blank, she states she is always tired....
and besides she do all her fukin in movies, lol... no time to get it at home, lol
Can U stupid people read? That is not Mayte that is Manuela Nelson. Prince second wife. He did not have a baby with her. It was Mayte his first wife and the baby died of a rare brain disease. Have some compassion for gods sake U people are so evil. But that was funny @ Missnellypoo....lol
If Halle truly doesn't like to have sex, she must not be getting it from the right man...all she needs is for someone to break her off proper and holding out won't even be an issue!! Oh yeah, LMAO at chinababbi!!
Well SOMEBODY had to date his broke ass. I never liked Eric Bennet because he has a sh1tty attitude and we all saw THAT, especially when he was married to Halle Berry. If this chic is smart she'll get FAR the fvck AWAY from HIM and never look back, cuz he ain't sh1t.
Well, I don't know what she does, but I would assume he makes more money than she does, so he can't get alomony from her. I wonder how she is handling his sex addiction, wit a check that hot, I would develop a sex addiction too, cause I would be fuck--- her every chance I could get.
She was link to somebody else in Hollywood not to long ago. Oh thats right Tommy Lee who been with all of Hollywood! Remember when her and Prince had a retarded child together and it died this was back in the 90's when she was married to Prince they both was on Oprah! WOW!
They look great together! I see that Eric likes gorgeous women. Don't fault him for the Halle break-up. Halle is totally beautiful & fine, but obviously she ain't doing something right...Eric and her 1st hubby Dave Justice cheated on her!!! I believe she is a cold, dry fish in bed!!!
Isn't it funny how we have these fantasies about our favorite celebs, but what if their whack it bed. Everytime I LL Cool J, my panties get wet, but i would hate for him to b a short man...WOW....LMBAO.
Halle is very pretty, but I think Eric Bentover is gay. That's y he's addicted to sex, cuz he's having sex with the wrong sex. I bet if he stop faking and get him a man, he would b satified.
LMAO @ MsNellypoo-good one about the hotcurlerz....TiVo...just an fyi...this wasn't the wife Prince lost a baby with. It was his 1st wife, Mayte.
She looks good in all the pics but the 3rd one. She has that wide mouth joker smile in that one...
@ VAL & StrongBlackWoman...I agree with you guys because even though Halle is pretty, you can tell she got issues. Do ya'll remember the interview with Christopher Williams? He was talking about how he wanted to clear up the rumor that he was the one that cause Halle deafness in her left ear. It was Wesley Snipes who did that...but he did agree with Dave that Halle has problems because he said she was jealous, insecure and didn't know when to turn the acting off. Yes, Halle is pretty but if she is a corpse in bed, or just didn't want to give it up, oh well if she got cheated on.
I always thought that was odd how all Halle's exes said she was a bit nutty. She has even admitted that she had issues steming back to growing up without her father.
I think Eric and Manuela look nice together.
I didnt even know Prince had second ex-wife..his first wife was a lot prettier..Manuela is a latino name and his first wife was Puerto Rican..so I guess he loves the latinas..thats so weird that Prince is such a superstar and no one knows anything about his personal life..anyway Eric is a good looking man, but his actions made him unattractive to me
and I agree with the people who said that Halle is not totally innocent in her failed relationships..I think she was going more for looks and popularity..she said she was so attracted to David Justice and thought he was so gorgeous that she just had to meet him, he was the hottest baseball player around at that time..then Christopher Williams was gorgeous and he was also hot at the time..ok not hot, just becoming known on the scene(oh well, he didnt quite meet expectations)..then Eric Benet was also a good looking man who was becoming more popular in the R&B world and had a successful ablum and tour when they met..now her current boyfriend was the most high profile male model when they met..she probably sees a pretty package and wants to believe they will be the perfect man
What? Are teens running MTO? Prince has always been into "women with melanin".
Good luck with his sexual addiction, girlie. Wear double condoms, don't give him your heart and make sure he's going to appropriate treatment for his serious DSM-IV diagnosis. ::shiver::
missnellypoo....LOL.. I'd share my curling iron, flat iron, and Mizani hair spray with Prince...Hell, I'd get up early enough to curl his hair for him...It's them da*n eyes of his...get me everytime..
Eric...not a fan...Halle seems sweet...She may be crazy underneath it all, but hellz bellzzzz so am I...I wouldn't want a piece of him either, knowing he was a sex addict and what he'd been running around with behind my back..I'd rather see that woman alive w/out an STD...She probably faked being tired...
He's going to cheat on her too why doesn't he find a crackhead he can date so he won't get insecure and ...cheat....and then cheat again.... and then ask her to pay for "sex addict rehab" like he's f**kin sick. Then come out after a year and she finds out he has already cheated again. He was such a pain maybe a fugly woman will make him a one woman man he can feel special.
IF THE GIRL IS PRETTY THAN SHE'S PRETTY NO MATTER IF SHE'S A HYBRID OR NOT, DAMN. YOU CANT TAKE SOMEONE LOOKS AWAY. THE GIRL IS PRETTY AND THEY LOOK BORING AS HELL BUT SHE'S PRETTY.
Misinformation is killing America! Pink Tequila, neither Christopher Williams nor Wesley Snipes caused Halle's deafness. She has stated several times over that it was a boyfriend from back in da day (May have been her 1st husband/WHITE GUY)who used to bash her ass on da regular and intentionally hit her in the side of her head on a boat they were on! Eric Benet is a pimp, even though he's a lil soft, and this broad is a lil long-in-da-toof. She's seen better dayz, but we all know that running around with one of Prince's exes ain't nuttin' nice!!! Imagine the "places" she's been! Wheeew!!!!!!!!!
I agree with whoever said that shit about people thinking Halle's pretty because she's a hybrid. First off the ho ain't nowhere near fine. She's cute. CUTE people. She don't look no better than the average woman out here. She just invests tons of money on herself. She has her PR people TELLING you dumbasses that she's the sexiest woman alive.....next thing you know, you dummies are parroting that shit. She's NOT by any means. Gabrielle Union, Sanaa Lathan, Nia Long and a slew of other Black women are much more beautiful, much sexier, and FAR better actresses than Halle Berry. Stop letting those crackers dictate to you what OUR idea of beauty is supposed to be. They consider her ass beautiful and acceptable to be Blacks' ideal of beauty because the ho has a white momma. Duh.
As far as Eric goes, do ya thang! You got a bad rap dealing with that egotistical bytch, but she always blames the man for all her issues....i.e. Dave Justice, Wesley, Christopher, and now David. AS ol' boy said, "What is it about YO pussy that keeps attracting all these fucked up men?"
@ebonyblanko: Halle's first husband was David Justice. The white guy she dated was a dentist long before she became famous.
It does appear she goes after attractive men most of the time. Wesley Snipes is no where near attractive.
@email2michael: Prince's baby had some sort of congenital defect. He seemed embarrassed about it but that's how it was born.
They are adorable and I hope he's happy.
And MTO...what the hell was that comment about Prince and dating women with that much MELANIN???? HUH????? Prince has always dated women of color and non color. Remember his mom is white...and if he choses to date whomever he wants then I gues that's his damn business!! Don't talk about my Prince aiight!! (pacing back and forth at my desk contemplating jumping into cyberspace for a cyber beatdown of MTO!!)
@SothenIsaid...whatchu know about the DSM-IV? LOL...lemme find out there actually ARE intelligent lifeforms posting on MTO...
As far as Eric and Manuela-good looking couple. How long will it last? Sad but true...
And is it just me...or does homegirl resemble Jack Nicholson (The Joker) or Jim Carrey (The Maks) SANS the cake makeup? Ssssssssssmmmmmmmokin!!!!!!!!!!
Agreeing with laughingatyall. Here Here!! I have been saying for years that Halle is White America's idea of a beautiful black woman. She's crap. She'll be getting wrinkles, crinkles and grooves before any of the other 'browner' sisters will. As far as Halle acting, she can't. she could be playing the most sophisticated and elegant woman with pride and will always end up looking like the crackhead from Jungle Fever. She has no range as an actress and she's the clumsiest clown out there. Damn near every movie set she's been on, she's fallen, something's fallen on her or she's broken something.
Oh yeah, best wishes to the young lady that has taken up with Eric Benet. He may be a sex addict, but he still looks like he'll steal you're panties and wear them. Is he just a sex addict with women? Or do his conquests include men?
Sex addicks do has sex with both sex. They addick to sex and it done matter who or what wif. So they gots problems and so Eric most likely bi.
Whoeva say Halle aint pretti just HATA! It a shame some people hate her because she ain black enuff in they opion. What we gone do-start blood test to see how much African blood vs. Europe blood you gots? Most of us black folks gota lil Europe in our vein too, so it done matta. Beauty be beauty and Halle be beauty.
Eric a tired busta tho. He gone need go back to REHAB. That girl gone probably get some diseases from that cheata.
Prince's mother ain't white. Her name is Mattie. She's light, kinda looks like Etta James. His father was on Good Morning America a long time ago and killed the rumor that Prince was half-Italian saying both him and the mother were Black.
@namaste. I saw Prince's father in a magazine too. Back in the '80s Prince said he was half-Italian and Ebony did an article questioning why several celebs were saying they were mixed. That's when people found out Paula Abdul is not black--her roots are Middle-Eastern (Abdul). In the article, Paula said she would be whatever people wanted her to be. When she was a Laker cheerleader she only dated black men. When she became a famous singer, she married and dated only white men. I guess her taste changed.
There is so much misinformation on this board that it is giving me a headache. Manuela/Mani is NOT Latina. She is black/mixed - she has a black Egyptian mother and a white Italian father.
Prince and Manuela were together seven years, which by today's standards ain't that bad - especially for celebrity marriages.
Prince's women typically look like him, so they are similar to him in melanin content. So that caption is pretty stupid. Mayte, his first wife was Puerto Rican. However, his list of ex-girlfriends is most black/mixed women. He also dated Nona Gaye for three years before he married Mayte. So folks need to get off that tip with Prince. At least he's not like all these so-called brothers like Reggie Bush running around exclusively with white women.
I'm not a fan of Eric Benet's,and it has nothing to do with that ice queen Halle,if she can't keep any of her men happy,that's her problem !
I never understood why everybody made such a big deal because he married Halle Berry !!!!!
YOU CAN SEE TWO TRAINED GOLD DIGGERS A MILE AWAY!
SHE USE HIM AND SHE'S A ''FAME''HOE!!!
she never loved prince just a gold digger who didn't know how special he really is. she's an ugly squint eyed hag. prince should spit on her especially everyone can see this is a very strategic planned revenge photo. he's better without this leach. she is butt ugly. and a low life charity-robber phoney.
mayte was with tommy lee and he has hepatitis c before he met her and he gave it to pam. this manni has a serious case of the ugly. don't know why he bothered with this manipulator. he should just hang around with good friends who are honest. love will find him someday. good luck princy. be glad you don't have to wake up to this aligator toothed dragon witch ever again. her charity is a fake. she has noooooo source of honest income except she's a con artist. her favorite charity is selling overpriced walmart candles to the poor or stupid rich.
also sick of this ''Egyptian phoney images'' if your black crap!!! black people are not inbred!!! for centuries like Egyptians. if you go with egyptian blood you will have a retard. her grinning loser face makes me sick. no education, just a degree in using people, fame hungry lowlife
Egyptians are married to their sisters and brothers for centuries inbreed incestuall nasty people. look at her face her nose is huge her eyes look evil and that big mouth spews lies and hate for a guy that gave her everything. manni you suk, and stay out of the press you fame hore. we could care less about you. go back to your shack in canada.
I think they look good together. I hope knows about Eric Benet's "sexual addiction." LMAO He messed around on Halle something terrible!....Then his broke barefoot azz gone make a song talkin bout "I wanna be loved, faithful and true." FAITHFUL AND TRUE?! NICCA WHAT!!! How you gone say that after what you did? But that is still a beautiful song. Hey we all deserve a second chance, right? Hopefully he has learned his lesson....yeah right.
SHE IS MOS DEF A NYMPHO, IF SHE CAN HANG WIT THAT DIRTY DYCK DOGG BASTARD!
HE LET EVERYONE KNOW BOUT HIS SEXUAL APPETITE, SO I KNOW SHE IS AS MUCH OF A FREAK AS SHE LOOKS!
THEY BOTH ARE CREEPY LOOK'N AND YOU CAN TELL SHE NEEDS TO INVEST IN NEW MAKE-UP!
"THAT SH*T MUST BE FROM ANCIENT EGYPT"!
KAUSE, IT LOOKS OLD AND CRUSTED!
WHY DOES HE ALWAYS LOOK DIRTY AND SCRUFFY?
BESIDES MOOCH'N OFF OF OTHER CELEBS, WHAT DO THE BOTH OF THEM DO N-E-WAY?
TEABAGG'N, SALAD TOSSERS GET NO MERCY FROM ME...
SHE NEEDS TO QUIT COLLECT'N ALL THAT NUT IN HER MOUTH, KAUSE HER CHEEKS ARE GOING TO EXPLODE!
AND THAT BUTTMUNCH'N BOYFRIEND OF HERS, NEEDS TO QUIT ROCK'N DA SH*T STAINS ON HIS FACE, LIKE A AFTER FIVE SHADOW!
WAKE-up y'all. Egypt in AFRICA!!! They aint all inbreed, some of pharohs be doin that shit, but some of the last ones be GREEK from Alexander the Great empire and so you cannot call an entire nation of AFRICAN peoples inbreed. Anwar Sadat look like my dad, so y'all betta step off! :)
Oh and Eric probably downe.
This is the reality of Miss Manuela story. She was a fan who set her goals on meeting (and catching) Prince. Every hard core fan at that time knew he was in a bad situation with his first wife as they had just lost a baby. Manuela knew Prince weakness for beautiful, young, skinny woman and took what she had and used it to catch him. In which she was successful. She caught Prince at a very vulnerable time in his life and his wife at the time grieving over the death of her and Prince child is the one who suffered twice in a short period of time. So this Manuela is nothing but a social climber who can easily be detected in Hollywood. Nobody wants Eric Benet and nobody wants Manuela. She took what ever she can get to stay in the Hollywood scene. She will always be known ONLY for being "Prince ex" and one day "Erics Ex", and THATS ALL! Look at the woman? She has the Jokers smile (evil and sneaky) with a droopy left eye (her left eye). She 's not the first Hollywood social climber to get around and she won't be the last. This woman is all about money, little does she know, Eric don't have any. But I guess he has what she needs for now... ACCESS to Hollywood!
Posted this in the wrong area on this site::
This girl was a die hard fan who purposely left her family in Toronto to move to Minneapolis to try to get near Prince. She used to buy bootlegs from online fansites of Prince.
When Prince's marraige was failing, she moved in on Prince. Prince and her were messing around while he was technically still married to Mayte. Manuela faked her interest in being a Jehova Witness so he thought not only is she a good trophy wife but someone he can be spiritual with.
After being married to him for five years she figured she had nothing to lose by leaving because she can live the fame life off his money even after getting a divorce.
She's no longer a Witness by the way...go figure. It was all fake.
TBoss: You are so correct and thanks for pointing that out. Manuela did play the Jehovahs Witness and all that until she got Prince. She lagged in her studies after nabbing him and of course she is no longer a JW. She not only used Prince, but that religion too. The Joker alright!!!
