Second-tier Destiny’s Child member and Diddy wig inspiration Kelly Rowland believes that a gal should know if her dude has had a penis (other than his own) in his life before getting on her. Kelly is in the middle of whoring out a Lifetime movie she’s in, called Love By The 10th Date (SUCH a Lifetime movie title). It’s about relationships, and there’s a bisexuality/men on the “down low” plot line. So Kelly gingerly dipped her toe in Vivica A. Fox’s pool who may have sounded “just the teensiest-tiniest bit homophobic” during an interview with the New York Post.
“There are some women who are not finding the real truth about their partner’s sexuality until they go through their man’s phones,” says Rowland. “But it happens with guys too, not just women. I can’t tell someone how to feel about dating someone who is bisexual or had a past gay experience, but it’s proper to ask in today’s times.”
Kelly spoke on a whole mess of relationship topics in this long-ass interview about the movie which makes me think the NY Post didn’t have much going on in the way of celebrity news that day. Sure, Kelly (maybe) gets invited over to Beyonce’s so her son, 2-year-old Titan Jewell (for real?) can have a playdate with Blue Ivy. But the name “Kelly Rowland” accompanied by the words “Lifetime movie” did not require the amount of bandwith used.
The movie also tackles open relationships. Kelly said wouldn’t be in one, but she’s happy for Mo’Nique’s.
Rowland, who’s been happily married for the past three years to her manager, Tim Witherspoon, says she’s not one to judge anyone who’s in an open marriage — including the much-publicized open marriage of comedienne Mo’Nique.
“None of my girlfriends that I know of have open relationships,” she says. “But Mo’Nique has the biggest smile on her face and seems happy. I just feel like I’m not in any position to judge anybody. We’re in a new time and space where sexuality should be talked about — whether you want to be with two people or three.”
Kelly’s character practices celibacy until she meets the right guy.
“I can truly relate to my character because I remember having my own celibate moment, where I was like, ‘I am not playing games anymore,’” says the Grammy-winning singer/songwriter/actress, 35. “I got to the point where I was like, ‘God, I want a husband!’ ”
Oh, and it goes on. Kelly wanting to know where the dick has been before it’s in her is fine, but she better not think for a second that I forgot when she called Freddy Krueger the “f-word.” I understand that a nightmare creature is trying to skewer your character with his shish-kebab fingers in your character’s dreams. But that is no excuse for such slurs, Kelly and Freddy vs. Jason’s writers! (Actually, Freddy called her something equally offensive in that scene. Who wrote that script? Mel Gibson?)
