Michael Ealy Discusses Starting a Family, Joining Twitter

Actor Michael Ealy spoke exclusively with Loop 21 about his plans for starting a family, and eventually joining the wildly popular social network, Twitter.com.

Ealy, who recently wrapped shooting the comedy flick, “Think Like a Man,” says he’s tired of people creating Twitter and Facebook pages that he doesn’t run.

The 38-year-old ‘Barbershop’ star also said he wants to wait until he can have all of his children with one submissive woman rather than spreading his seed in multiple industry sluts like other irresponsible stars have done.

Loop 21: You said that growing up you had a mother like Claire Huxtable, yet a lot of people don’t think the ‘Cosby Show’ ideal can exist. Is that how you’d like your household to run?

Michael Ealy: I would love to have a complete family. I’d love to do it all at once. I‘d love to be able to give to my children what my parents were able to give to me. And if I’m blessed to be able to do that, fantastic. If I’m not, then life goes on. You have to do the best you can. There’s plenty of people out there doing the best they can every day. Some people are okay with it, and some people are like no, this is how it’s supposed to be. I do think we have to bring the family back; I do.

Loop 21: Is there a reason why haven’t you joined [Twitter]?

Ealy: I have been fighting it. I have been fighting it. I think more than likely, and I haven’t really said this publicly, but more than likely I will be on Twitter in 2012.

Loop 21: Why 2012?

Ealy: One, I don’t have time to do anything right now. I just don’t. And two, you know…I’m not done with this show until early next year so I just can’t physically do anything like that until next year. I know it’s just a matter of touching a couple of buttons on your phone, but believe me, this interview is difficult. When I tell you this schedule is a grind; it’s a grind. So, probably the top of next year. I remember talking to Kevin Hart and Taraji about Twitter and they kind of talked me into a little bit, so next year I’ll try it. …I’m more so concerned about people running Twitter and Facebook pages that I don’t run, but they’re allegedly mine. So I want to take control of that.

    GM Auntie!!
    I actually love this posts its nice to know there a some black men that exist that are into a family unit and raising children WITH the mother. I’m goin to be 30 this month and have no kids, never been pregnant, and am extremely, dare I say it …RESPONSIBLE in my adult sex life. I am the last of my home girls that hasn’t fell into being a baby mama. I have really mixed feelings on this turn of my generation being nothing but random baby mamas and kids growing up in broke unprepared households born to parents that won’t except their life should be about raising their child now. I feel like its really bringing down our race as a whole, these young women and men are taking part in breaking down the already weak family unit and dynamics we have given up and got accustom to it seems. I don’t try and be condescending but I didn’t come this far to be a “baby mama”, so I’m on the mindset of no ring no womb, plus I’m not in the least bit interested in being a single parent, I’ve seen it done…and been raised by one, I’m good.
    thank you Michael for standing out.

    News source Retuers….wrote “The woman who claimed teen singer Justin Bieber fathered a baby with her has dropped her paternity lawsuit, but Mariah Yeater’s lawyer said on Wednesday she is pursuing her claim out of court.

    Sources close to Bieber said on Wednesday that arrangements were underway for the DNA test to take place soon.

    Chicago attorney Jeffery Leving said on Wednesday that Yeater had dropped the lawsuit but had a new legal team and hoped to reach a private settlement with Bieber’s lawyers.”

    Hey all :waves: (speaks anyway even though none of yall rude bishes speak anyway) :rofl:

    I think I have to agree with the judges, Dominique is a bad bish but she just dosen’t have “it” imo. The big eyed girl, who’s eyes really creep me the fluck out, does have a brand that pic she took in the salad was fierce even the homely girl looked girl with that bow and arrow. Imo both of those chicks have “it” for runways, cover girl, couture. I agree with what someone else said that one bish’s attitude stinks to high heaven.

    I think people now just automatically ask for donations, especially when it’s a celebrity. I’m not giving anything. He had a daughter. well, so do many of my friends, siblings, and countrymen. If anyone is that financially irresponsible to not even have a life insurance policy, even AFTER you have kids, something’s wrong with you. there’s nothing wrong with me for not giving.

    People that knock the Cliff and Claire way or think the family was so perfect obviously were not paying very good attention to the show. From episode one there were issues with the family. The kids were getting bad grades, stealing money out of moms purse to buy a darn light up shirt, sneaking out of state to a rock concert, shacking up, breaking up, sneaking in, sneaking out, getting drunk, telling family business all types of craziness. Cliff and Claire sometimes had their tiffs or disagreed about things pertaining to the kids. Cliff and Claire weren’t “poor” and didn’t call their kids a-holes and fast tail heffas, but they did check ‘em. And that’s why I still love that show. Better ask somebody. Lol.
