Frank Ski and fiancee

V-103's Frank Ski is ready to tie the knot again, 3 years after his quiet divorce from Tanya Parker.

The popular DJ popped the question to Dr. Patrice Basanta-Henry Saturday night at the Lobster Bar Sea Grille in Miami Beach.

Dr. Bernice is a gynecologist who practices at Atlanta Maternal-Fetal Medicine, according to the

SKi and Tanya wed in 1995. The couple had three sons together: Franklin, 17, and twins Blake and Harrison, 16. He also has a son Jarrett, 27, from a previous relationship.

Ski and Tanya were the epitome of Atlanta's power couple. She owned a beauty salon and volunteered at charity events while Ski helmed Atlanta's #1 morning show and ran his Frank Ski Foundation.

Their beautiful mansion was the site of Ski's annual star-studded Frank Ski Foundation Wine Tasting and auction.

In an interview with the's Jennifer Bratt, Ski talked about his proudest achievements: his sons.

“I am truly amazed at how great my kids are,” he said. “Watching them every step of the way be better than me has been really amazing. They’re so much better than me. Smarter, more talented. I sit back and I’m like, wow."

    I didn't know they got divorced , wow. That was messy to send in the family pic from the house, it was almost as if you were saving that to reference in a later story Sandra?

    Dr. Bernice is a gynecologist......

    Frank, you cheat or break her heart and she is going to make your ? fall off.

  • hottlanta

    Wow I saw this Sunday but I knew about the divorce months ago. He would be on the radio talking about single women like a dog and now his wife is now a single woman. He would always name drop and act as if he was the first black person to do something and he was the only one who had some money. The black folks in the city who has the serious coins didn't fool with his phoney azz.

  • Coy little wink

    Why did they divorce...was he cheating with this doctor?

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    That summation is spot on. I remember when their Sandy Springs mansion was on the market. I said then it was more than a job change - they're going thru something.

    He was a name dropping fool and rode hard for Bishop Eddie Wrong. I laughed to myself when the allegations broke and v-103 stopped the inspiration vitamin snippets that included Eddie Schlong.

    Sidenote: Sandra when you were the ish celebrity photographer back in the day, didn't one r/b singer slowly approach you in an aggressive manner at Frank's manse?

  • Nancy Drew is All The Way Up!

    I got nothing ...but congrats to the couple ....(oh, and I read that as annual winG tasting contest ?)

  • imright

    damnn so whats her name going to be now ?? Patrice Basanta Henry Parker ?????

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    Atl news. Congrats.

  • hottlanta

    Yep they gonna have to lower the font on the marriage certificate template to add another hyphen and her last name.

  • hottlanta

    Yep I remember when that stuff came out about Eddie Long folks called and ripped him to shreds because he didn't let people call in and talk about it. I remember when he had fake Nina on one day and they were saying how they would go to Eddie Long church together for night service. I am saying to myself really yall got off work at 10:00am and going to church together at night at 7pm. She was friends with Frank but would never say she was friends with his wife Tanya. Now I ain't a jealous woman but I ain't a stupid woman either. She would get on my nerves like Frank was the bee's knees. Folks would call in and say Frank I just love the way you talk about your wife I want a husband and marriage just like yours. Especially Wanda who got her husband Lavorius from a club on Glenwood, brought him home and dressed him up and called him her husband.

You can drink, dance and go out the glass sliding door to cool off. I went there to an Xmas party and ole granddad sitting next to me gripped my thighs hard. My friends was laughing at me because I didn't want to get jumped on in the club for whupping this ole man azz. He was so old folks would have felt sorry for him.

  • JerseyMom

    Didn't know he divorced his wife Tanya until yesterday.

    Sidebar: V103 should move Frank back to mornings and Ryan Cameron back to afternoons. I can't take Ryan's silliness in the morning. Ryan and Wanda do not have enough chemistry. She is a better fit with Frank.

  • Missy

    They look alike in that pic up top.

  • Dollmeshia Dee-Dee Clark

    the problem is Frank has tried to move to a more serious political forum ....he's over the hip hop trap house vibe

  • Karen Brady

    Eddie Schlong. :-)

  • MythCalledLove

    Yeah 40 years of taking no B.S. of being selective. Not everyone is meant for marriage. I was career driven marriage, kids were nowhere in my plan. No law said I had to do it. Also remember we hv had 9/11 & serious warfare this past war has left more widows than any other. So they might fall into 40 theory. Marriage is no joke. How many under 40 are stilk married? Or what number husband are they on? Someone told you that dumb ass rule and the one about living with cats is false too. Facts you say ?? It maybe harder to find love after 40 but it does not mean problems. I hv survived 47 yrs not one damn problem several opportunities but I chose. But getting my point across to those that think like you doesn't matter the real problem is you that YOU really believe that.. Sucks to be you I suppose living your life with a countdown clock. Damn your right I see the problem now.

  • MythCalledLove

    LOL..(Throws hands up) I quit

  • Nancy Watson

    Why can't people be happy for the man and wish him well. So much negativity in the air. This is the reason why there will never be any unity among black people because of they constantly tearing down each other. So sad ?

  • pynkrose407


  • Coco17

    Everybody know he was cheating it isnt new news

  • Coco17

    Really havent heard that one..

  • Coco17

    I figured he was divorced when I heard him talking reckless about marriage and how women act some months ago...he was going in like it was personal. I was like wow.

  • Coco17

    The ex use to brag and name drop too...smh so annoying

  • Coco17

    True, Ryan isnt that interesting to me. His co-host always out shine him.

  • Coco17

    No ryan was on hot 97 in the morning before it was 107.9

  • Lovely1

    I agree. Ryan Cameron was the shiznit back in the late 80s/early 90s. I used to love listening to Frank Ski in the morning.

  • Smokey’s Mom

    Hottlanta - your comments are spot on - great job and I couldn't agree with you more. Keep posting!

  • Scromes1212

    Your projecting lol relax, you'll find someone.

  • ThaRealist StudioGangster

    Possibly, it wouldn't surprise me. His personality give him a whole lot of options in woman. Instagram models and strippers are mastering there ability to hold a $@ck there mouth without gaging for 5 minutes. Celeb wives are to busy doing extra shit to the point where they can't suck a $@ck for 2 minutes without crying "I'M TRIED AND MY MOUTH HURTS". SO CELEB wives will continue getting cheated on by strippers and Instagram models
