Actress Vivica A. Fox is bucking the current trend of putting her personal life on public display for television cameras. The 47-year-old star of Set It Off and Kill Bill said she is avoiding going the reality show route to preserve her relationship with her man.
“I will be getting married soon,” Vivica said, referring to her engagement to fiance Omar “Slimm” White. “When we got engaged it was the #1 trending topic of the day on Yahoo! so we thought everyone would be interested in seeing the wedding and the whole shebang.”
Vivica told reporters at the recent Comic Con event in San Diego that she knew she’d made the right decision after meeting with reality tv show producers.
“When we went there, they were like, ‘What do you guys fight about?’ Who are your friends that are a mess?’ So I was like, ‘I don’t want to start off my marriage with creating drama’ because we get along very good.”
“I try not to live my life in a fishbowl. I have to turn off,” Vivica said. “If I’m on all of the time, how will my husband ever get to know me as his future wife. I have learned to turn off and to be able to hang out with my family and my friends and not be so on.”
