In a revealing interview with UnsignedTheMagazine.com, actress LisaRaye gave a little more insight into her recently broken heart, her philosophy on life, making amends with her ex- husband, the former premier of T&C Islands; and her strained finances.
LR described her current status as "so on the market":
You’ve got to do something different and step out on faith. You cannot bring your old baggage into something new. Learn from that, move forward and give love a chance. Love is a wonderful thing, it’s very powerful. I’m a fan of marriage, I’m a fan of belonging to someone and I would love to belong with someone because it’s easier to fight life with a partner than not. Someone to have your back, bounce ideas off of, to encourage you and build you up, someone that’s ultimately your best friend.
Her philosophy on life and her finances:
“Prayer, and failure is not an option. I love life, I love living life, and I love laughing. I prefer to look at the glass as half-full instead of seeing it as half-empty and trust this, I had my ‘Lord Have Mercy’ Fund off to the side. That’s the money that you need to have when it gets bad, but I’m still in this economy like everyone else thinking about, ‘okay, where’s the money coming in?’ My reserves are dwindling down, so that is why I’m back to business, back to doing me, back to my career, so I’m very grateful that I have an opportunity and a place to return to, that my fans are telling me ‘we want to see you on the big screen, we miss you, welcome back.’ And that speaks volumes to me.”
What the 42-year-old Diva didn't touch on in this interview was her (failed) reunion with her 20-year-old daughter Kai's father.
He was the mystery man that I told you LR was dating earlier this year. LR and Kai's father were an item until a few months ago. Earlier this year, he was scheduled to fly into Atlanta's Hartsfield airport with LisaRaye.
My photographer was set to capture the exclusive photos of the two lovebirds together as they arrived. But unfortunately, things didn't work out.
LR refuses to talk publicly about why her 2nd attempt at love with Kai's father didn't work out. Their rekindled relationship will be the focus of the 2nd Season of The Real McCoy.
Watch LisaRaye's The Real McCoy tonight on TV One to see why LR almost passed out in the Mojave desert. There are only two episodes left!
