And if you were already divorcing him, why at this point does his sexuality really matter to you?”

Well, I assume it really matter to her now because she also said he had a gay lover of 9 months, at the time of his confession. Now if he was having sex with both of them, and not using condoms, then it matters greatly.

(Btw: I’m no attorney, but I think she may have made a COSTLY error via admitting she’d already initiated a divorce, because it seems to me a judge might use that to make his confession null/void.)

Why is that? I see it just adding to a plate that’s already full. The main problem they are having is he's trying to nullify the pre-nuptial agreement.

@ “Given the damage the divorce is doing to your good-name, wouldn’t be better if you tried to reach a settlement with Jonathan ASAP so you can put this sordid affair behind you?

Who’s to say that she hasn’t? She also said in that interview, all this came about because she said No. Meaning -- you’re not getting from me what you don't deserve.

Had Tavis intended to conduct an authentic interview and not simply gratify a fellow member of the Black glitterati, the interview might have proven informative and provided a valuable cautionary tale for other Black women who might find themselves in a situation similar to that of Terri’s.

I'd would say, even so far, that they’ve learned a lot.

Lastly, Terri may discover it’s best that she gives this clown some modicum of her “How Stella...’” earnings (I thinking 1 – 5%) provided he signs an ironclad hush order. That might allow her to save herself further embarrassment and to return to more productive professional and personal pursuits.

She has given him some 'modicum" from the book, "How Stella ...". He admitted to that in the court documents. I don’t remember the exact percentage though.

And, why should she be embarrassed? He's the one admitting to taking money from her without her knowledge or consent, admitted to be confused about his sexual orientation for nearly all of his life, yet presented himself as heterosexual to her, trying to get out an legal agreement he signed before they married. etc.
