*On Friday, Nov. 9, the ladies of The Real discussed the best way to tell someone they’re no longer invited to your home, and co-host Adrienne Houghton relates how she handled this situation. Also, is crash-dieting the best way to handle all that holiday food coming your way?
And Orlando Week comes to an end with a very special Hotline Bling winner!
Later, Chad Johnson and Michelle Williams stop by to talk about their new reality show, Chad Loves Michelle. The couple discusses Michelle’s struggle with depression and the toll it took on their relationship, as well as their decision not to have sex before they get married.
Michelle Williams and Chad Johnson Talk No Sex Before Marriage
Jeannie Mai: And another thing you guys have been open about leading up to the marriage is waiting to have sex before marriage.
Michelle Williams: Mmhm. Yes.
Jeannie: So, how’s it going? Let us know that.
Chad Johnson: Here comes the questions.
Michelle: We still waiting.
Jeannie: Ok, still waiting. Yes. I mean keep it real, girl. But, why? Why that decision?
Michelle: Go ahead.
Chad: Well, I mean. Obviously… she passes it off to me. Obviously we are both committed to our faith. So, that plays the first and foremost part of our, you know.
Tamera Mowry-Housley: Amen.
Chad: But, also, I wanted to make sure Michelle felt that she didn’t have to give me anything physically in order for me to, you know, for her to win my affection, my total affection and attention and connect spiritually, you know, mentally, intellectually.
Loni Love: So, there ain’t been no, no, no, nothing?
Tamera: Oh my gosh, Loni!
Michelle: The struggle is so real. And when we first started dating and Chad said ‘sex is not an option’, and it took the pressure off of me so that I don’t feel like I had to have sex with him to keep him.
Tamera: That’s nice.
Jeannie: Wait. Chad said it first?
Michelle: Yes. He said ‘it’s not an option’. I said ‘well, come on, Jesus,’ and look what I got. (shows ring)
