In Case You Missed It: Oprah Interviews LL Cool J

LL Cool J Simone Smith and Oprah

Rap legend-turned-actor James Todd Smith, aka LL Cool J, opened up to talk show Diva Oprah about the darkest days of his childhood and the abuse he suffered at the hands of his mother’s boyfriend.

LL, 45, and Oprah, who turns 59 tomorrow, are soon joined on the couch by LL’s devoted (and long-suffering) wife Simone, 43, who remained with her wayward husband all those years while he sowed his wild oats — because that is what a wife and mother is supposed to do.

LL Cool J Simone Smith and Oprah

Simone said “Putting God first” and “Praying grandmothers” helped to keep their marriage together. Simone added: “A lot of compromise, picking your battles and, you know, respecting each other,” also helped to keep their marriage on an even keel.

Great interview by Oprah. Remember to thank Yardie for making these full videos possible for your viewing pleasure!

    Her parents on the other hand..her dad and mom have been together 33 years Married for 31. They were each others first everything. Her dad jst left her mom after 31 years of marriage for someone else…

    True statement.. Not condoning unfaithfulness but that’s sooo true. Most men aren’t ready to be married before 28-30. I haven’t found any that are really, truely, ready to be married. Branging yo money home, taking care of bills, sharing bank accounts etc.. however, I’m not ready to do that either LOL!!

    I am a married woman, so I understand her reason for staying. Ladies, if you leave your husband if he cheats, know that the next man will cheat too. So you may as well stay with the man you are married to, work through it, and continue to raise your kids together. I’m not condoning men who cheat I am simply stating reality. MEN WILL CHEAT. Period. What is NOT acceptable is bringing home diseases, babies, and putting these side bitches ahead of your wife and family. That is all :coffee:

    —————-
    I have to seriously disagree with you. You cant say the next man will cheat because not all male population are cheaters. I know quite a few men, young and old who NEVER stepped out and dont plan on it because they believe in the saying “happy wife happy wife” and theyve all told me they’d file for divorce before they’d think about cheating if the situation got that bad.

Too many women have given themselves anger and mental issues stemming from a man’s infidelities.

    Straight up.. Im not married but I can understand your viewpoint, a lotta ppl may disagree w/you though. Personally, after 8 yr breakup, me trying to date is sooo foreign. These dudes now are trifling and I aint sleeping w/them b/c you dont know what they have. AND I dont have kids so I dont want a man w/kids and it’s hard to find a man w/o kids and crazy baby mama drama.. My ex- is a hardworker, got his own, no kids etc.. We been doing this since we were 17. Maybe we just needed to grow? BUT at the same time, woman deserve a man that can be with them only?? IDK.. life is sooooo hard :)

    Honestly just listening to them and how they’ve talked about their wives/gf is the teller.

    But a woman knowing she’s not worth the boolsheet her husband/bf is giving her should be all the reason for her not to settle for the boolsheet. A lot of women put up with mess just because they may feel they cant find anything better…some of its a mental thing.

He took care of his kids, his wife, his home, and made sure he worked his ass off for his family. Getting side cutty, didn’t mean he didn’t love his wife and children, it meant he was doing what men do. Grandma KNEW what he was doing and guess what? She still made sure his dinner plate was on the stove when he got off work.

SO far I have NEVER had anyone call me or confront me or any inkling that he is/was/ or has cheated … not to say he hasn’t because I won’t swear on nobody ding-ling BUT he can’t even remember his ATM PIN number so I highly doubt he that smart (love you BABES *kiss*) LOL stop letting the media DESTROY the notion of a productive, positive image of the BLACK FAMILY the MASTER’S plan is ALWAYS in full effect!!!!

    @ Ty

    If a woman bases her self-worth on whether or not a man cheats on her, a cheating man is the least of her problems.
    ___________
    Your self worth can not be dictated nor based on what someone else is doing. The key word is “self!” Some females dont know what it is so they can’t grasp it. Its basically self esteem, respect, and comprehending ones own value. If you have those traits, staying with someone that cheats becuase you think the next man will wouldnt even be a second thought :coffee:

    Back in the days of my Grandma, Great-Grandma etc….these marriages lasted years. Do you really think Grandad, Great-Grandad didn’t get him a lil cutty on the side every once in a while??? He took care of his kids, his wife, his home, and made sure he worked his ass off for his family. Getting side cutty, didn’t mean he didn’t love his wife and children, it meant he was doing what men do. Grandma KNEW what he was doing and guess what? She still made sure his dinner plate was on the stove when he got off work.

    When I say ALL MEN CHEAT, I mean 95%-99% of them do. Hell, that’s close enough to ALL to me…you do the math. If you are a woman and you choose to leave your husband for cheating, that’s your choice, but please believe he wasn’t the first and he won’t be the last. You may as well stay single or keep packin them bags every few years. JMO. :coffee:

    I understand you said ALL men but ALL men are not put on “blast” like our men… and the BLACK women is what 12% of the population but 64% of the new AIDS/HIV cases so while ALL men may cheat ALL WOMEN are not AFFECTED like BLACK WOMEN are we need to raise our standards as BLACK WOMEN on what we will and WILL NOT ACCEPT … I am not e-thugging sis just putting out food for thought…..EVERYTHING we take into our mind, body and souls is OUR CHOICE….

    I never said that I had confirmation that ALL of the men I have dated have cheated on me. What I said was that all men cheat. What can I do if I have never caught my husband cheating? NOTHING. Out of sight, out of mind. But if I did catch him, unless this bish done been in my house, pregnant, or he bringing home diseases and not taking care of home. I aint going nowhere. Lemme guess, You must be single.

    I am a married woman, so I understand her reason for staying. Ladies, if you leave your husband if he cheats, know that the next man will cheat too. So you may as well stay with the man you are married to, work through it, and continue to raise your kids together. I’m not condoning men who cheat I am simply stating reality. MEN WILL CHEAT. Period. What is NOT acceptable is bringing home diseases, babies, and putting these side bitches ahead of your wife and family. That is all

    I co-sign 100%. I think many relationships would last longer if people gain the maturity to know that FOREVER is a LONG time and takes a helluvalot of emotional intelligence which many of us are truly lacking. We are all human and make mistakes! I think you must weigh your options. If a man is TRULY good to you, do you blow it all off because he made what becomes known as an obvious mistake in judgement for whatever reason. I THINK NOT!!! MY MAN TREATS ME LIKE A QUEEN AND IBEDAMN IF IMA LET ALL THAT HE DOES FOR ME GO BECAUSE HE A HAS A LAPSE IN JUDGEMENT!!! :love: Again, we are all human and wouldn't know what we would in the face of different difficult situations!

    Simone, 43, who remained with her wayward husband all those years while he sowed his wild oats — because that is what a wife and mother is supposed to do.

    no way can you be for real? And what is a man supposed to do? continuously step out on his family? bring the possibly of disease and drama into his home? that is not what a marriage is Ms. Rose. There are plenty of people who have marriages where infidelity and compromising your morals is not an issue that is no way to live. Sometimes the statements amaze me

    I’m sorry but this is the most ridiculous thing I’ve read in a long time. I’ve told my husband that if you want to cheat, if you feel that you need another women so bad that you just have to have her than by all means go and get her. BUT BE VERY CLEAR YOU CAN’T COME BACK HERE!! I love my husband we’ve been married for almost 15 years and together for more than 20. However I love myself more. To tell a man that I’ll stand by you and just hope beyond hope that you don’t bring a disease back to my home and my body is just ridiculous. Sorry I ain’t having it. I’m not interested in HIV, AIDS, syphilis, or any other shat that’s floating around out there.

    Another thing to stay in a rotten relationship for your children isn’t doing your children a service either. Because in the end you raise little girls that become women that will accept the same bullshat that you’re accepting putting her life in danger. You also raise men that are putting their own lives in danger by thinking it’s okay to cheat and stick his weeny in anything that’s wet. Personally and this is just my personal preference I’ve raised my daughter to know that she’s worth more than some tired as dude that can’t put not only her feelings but her well being ahead of his weeny.

    So cheating makes the entire relationship rotten? I agree with teaching our daughters self-worth, but I think we also need to teach reality!!! The truth is how in the world do you know that YOUR husband has been COMPLETELY faithful all of these years? DUDES GAME MAY BE SUPER TIGHT! :facepalm: Truth is one never knows! :shrug:

    I stick by what I stated earlier, Men cheat. Men will react differently when their woman cheats because MEN AND WOMEN ARE NOT THE SAME!!! We are not supposed to react to things the same way. I am NOT with my husband just for the kids, I am with him because of the way he treats me in addition to him being a GREAT father. The real issue is these ratchet ass whores out here that sleep with married men. If they wouldn’t make themselves available to married men, men wouldn’t have anyone to cheat with. But since there are such hoes out here…I have made the decision that if I found out my husband got some cutty on the side, I cannot say that I will pack up my ish and leave.

    OMG! This is the craziest thing I have heard in a long time. So you don’t mind if your husband is sleeping with “ratchet *ss whores”??? These ratchett ass whores carry diseases honey! Do you know the fastest growing HIV population??? Black women between ages 30-35!!!Bottom line if your husband is stepping out on you, he is disrespecting you and endangering your life. You are a victim. See how you feel when your husband falls in love with one of these “ratchet *ss whores and leaves your nutty *ss. I bet you won’t be singing that same tune!
