There’s no question that when it comes to picking men, Halle Berry’s good choices detector is broken. If Halle is vinegar, she goes straight for the baking soda. Halle Berry has been married three times, and all three were varying degrees of bad. Even the men she wasn’t married to have been dragged – literally – into her husband troubles. But it sounds like Halle might have recently reached a moment of self-actualization.
Entertainment Tonight says that during a Q&A at the 2017 City Summit and Gala at USC on Saturday, Halle admitted that she knows her three marriages have been more of a bomb than Catwoman.
“I have learned to deal with three failed marriages, which has not been easy, especially when there’s children involved. [As] women, we go into marriage thinking it’s going to last forever and that this is our prince on a shiny horse. That’s what fairy tales taught me as a kid…and I’m kind of anti-fairy tales today.
But we go in there with that hope, so when it falls apart it feels like a huge failure and a huge disappointment. I’ve often felt guilty and responsible. I’ve suffered a lot of pain and anguish.”
Halle adds that all of those train wreck relationships have taught her a lot about herself and that each bad relationship was a “lesson.” Yeah, the lesson is that Halle needs a better screening process for potential boyfriends and husbands besides being hot. Halle also says that her most important job right now is being a mom to 8-year-old Nahla and 3-year-old Maceo.
I would say it’s probably a good idea that Halle lay off the fairy tales. Or at the very least, just set more realistic expectations. The prince-on-a-horse types haven’t been working out for her. So maybe she needs to look away from the Gastons and browse the talking candlestick holders? Although it’s Halle Berry we’re talking about, which means there’s still a chance that relationship could end with a public screaming match between Halle and a feather duster. Errr…maybe just focus on Halle for the next couple decades.
