Power couples

Several Hollywood Power couples got together for a group shot to show you young’ns that everlasting Love can be achieved when you put your partner first.

The couples pictured are L-R: Mr. and Mrs. Earvin “Magic” Johnson, Mr. and Mrs. James Todd Smith, aka LL Cool J, and Mr. and Mrs. Samuel L. Jackson.

Below is a bonus pic of reality TV stars Althea Heart, left, Erica Mena, center, and Amina Buddafly with their kids at The LEGO Ninjago Movie’s Back To School Bash.
 




  • WutizaGRANNY!

  • thrift.store.jungle

  • You Could Never

    Love can be achieved when you put your partner first.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    When did Magic put Cookie first? Before or after he came home with HIV? Asking for a friend. That friend is me.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yup. Married couples vs. Baby mamas. That’s what it looks like.

  • Coy little wink
  • Jen_no_juice

    Yay for the black love! Althea looking….? y’all sure that’s her?

  • Cali

    Sam Jackson!!!!! I love that man and L looks great too, Yall can have Magic…

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    There’s a lot of money in that top picture too. Combined net worth there is probably like $800 million. Black wealth is a beautiful thing too.

  • Karen Beasley

    lmmfao at you……..that was clever/funny ass fuk……

  • You Could Never

    Amina is married I still think. Her cheating ass husband could for all intents and purposes go right up there with the other 3. As @coylittlewink:disqus just pointed out…all 3 have cheated.

  • LuLu

    I was about to say… one is HIV+, the other is a rumored bisexual, the other is a former crackhead. Nah….I’d rather be single and in the second picture. LOL

  • Karen Brady

    L is a rumored bi?? Samuel really smoked crack?

  • Karen Brady

    Thank you. PUH-LEAZE

  • Ni Ni

    Does Sam and Latanya have children?

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    Indeed it is!

  • imright

    But according to you , in many many a post , Simone is long suffering! So you see how this seems quite contradictory in their ( LL and his wife) case! If he puts her first, where does the long suffering come in at?

  • stav

    Facts! Now Sandra’s glorifying them , claiming they put their wives first when she knows the tea on all these men. So contradictory!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Supposedly, LL hoed around a lot before he finally put that wedding ring on her finger. I’m assuming that’s what she’s referring to.

  • I want to be free

    They have a daughter

  • Renee26

    Nice pic of these couples….shows longevity and staying married for years on top of years is possible. I’m not sure about the putting your mate first comment because one of them up top was having unprotected sexual affairs and another admitted to being a dog for years when they first got together. IMO that’s not putting your mate first…but hey they all were able to overcome it and stay together so good for them!!

  • Renee26

    Yep….hung in there after all the BS

  • Karen Brady

    That’s our Sandra. These three men are a TRIP and we all know that.

  • Renee26

    They are also long suffering…just waiting on the ring. The top picture could be them if they suffer long enough

  • Karen Brady

    Do ya’ll believe once a womanizer always a womanizer or can one be reformed?

  • LuLu

    That’s what a lot of people say about L.L.
    I don’t know personally. But as for Samuel:

  • Renee26

    Depends…people only change for themselves. Some men get tired of the drama that comes along with it….others like the lifestyle. If he wants to do right he will

  • stav

    So he wasn’t putting her first then, and i’m certain that’s more than likely still the case. If she put up with all that before, including the gay rumors, she’s still putting up with it as his wife. That leopards spots hasn’t changed!

  • Ni Ni

    Ok, seems like he would be a fun dad.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    Long suffering wives club.

  • stav

    I believe one can change, however one must change their surroundings,mentality, and lifestyle. He’s still in an industry that does not value anything sacred, an industry that’s based on temptation.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    Not sure. I’ve never stayed to find out.

  • I want to be free
  • I want to be free

    I think they are very close. This is when she was younger. I believe she’s in her 30’s now.

  • Kimberly King

    All 3 couples look nice !

  • Ni Ni

    How sweet.

  • Karen Brady

    Excellent answer! Thank you.

  • Karen Brady

    I hear you.. especially the part about the drama.

  • Karen Brady

    Yep I always say I can’t imagine how hard it must be to date in the entertainment/sports world if you’re looking for solid and monogamous love. Hard enough with Joe Schmo sometimes.

  • Karen Brady

    Where pterodactyl Benzino at? Have he and Steebie made up yet?

  • Guest©

    In Sandra’s defense, no one is perfect, lol. Guess you have to pick your poison then stick with it?.

  • stav

    Exactly!

  • Renee26

    I don’t think those who date in the industry have the same standards as we do. I couldn’t do it because I wouldn’t last in one of those open relationships…money means less to me. A lot are opportunist who are ok with being cheated on as long as they are getting financial and materialistic benefits….there’s a lot of regular women who think like this too. I feel sorry for them because I think they lack a self love

  • Renee26

    It takes a lot of work for cheat or to have multiple partners and keep track of lies…call me lazy LOL

  • Scromes1212

    Broke dudes cheat just as much lol if not more. I think that has more to do with being a man then it does your profession.

  • Scromes1212

    Relationships are tough, glad they hung in there and made it work. I’m sure there were a lot of times both the men and the women wanted to leave. Salute to them for making marriage work how it’s suppose to.

  • Karen Brady

    Right.. for ALOT of them it’s like business.. they have contracts for dating one another, being a beard, etc. I’m a regular woman with what I believe are decent morals and decent standards and you can keep your money.. I’ll survive. And YES there are many many regular women out here who think like Hollyweird folk. I couln’t do it. I don’t want to share or be shared :-(.

  • MsPam

    James Todd Smith might be a faithful husband but the other two?! Nope! I’m not going to put my money on them.

  • Karen Brady

    Me too honey.. I ain’t got the time, desire or energy. No ma’am.

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Quitedeliteful

    This everlasting love is also long-suffering love. Can’t say I blame them tho… They are not walking away from millions of dollars and a privileged lifestyle.

  • hottlanta

    Love it/love it/love it.

  • hottlanta

    Folks saying if Magic didn’t have HIV it would not be with Cookie. I said he can still cheat because he knows no matter what he does she is gonna always be there. He stood her up at the altar 3 times and she talked about it like it was cute. Then he had the romantic nerve to say I would have sex with women at my house in my bed but I told women they couldn’t spend the night. The only woman that can spend the night her is Cookie. Wasn’t that special.

  • hottlanta

    Long money club.

  • YaYa

    Everyone looks healthy and happy!

  • hottlanta

    And the trophy goes to,

  • hottlanta

    Wealthy, healthy and happy.

  • hottlanta

    Samuel L. Jackson was married to another woman for a week and left her for his wife now. I read that in Essence magazine I was like well dayum.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Three times?!?!? Damn Damn Damn!!!! I know women stay in it for the money but you could only stand me up once. No way I will allow you to treat me worse than a house pet!!!

  • hottlanta

    Yep I remember reading about it Essence magazine but she said it on Oprah. When she got to the part where she said she was hiding in the closet listening while he went down the list when he was calling those women when he got HIV. Betta woman than me.

    Magic may have put Cookie first, but that b@st@rd had a whole lot of seconds, thirds, fourths, and fifths… that’s how he caught the package.

  • bashi

    Yes i notice that the ladies that makes their husband lead always have a successful marriage every time compared to the onces who wants to compete and be known in the public of being successful as well like their partner never last

  • RICHIE_RICH

    James Tood Smith like trannies boo?????

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Yea he was back in the 80’s

  • RICHIE_RICH

    When you marry it’s for better or worse? Well that’s what the good ole book say?????

  • MythCalledLove

    I never knew that Samuel L Jackson wife was on Blue Bloods. She has a serious resume on her own.

  • JENNYJONES1

    I GUESS MAKE THEIR HUSBAND’S LEAD AND SUCCESSFUL MARRIAGE MEANS LETTING YOUR HUSBAND CHEAT ON YOU UNTIL HE’S TIRED, NOT AS SUCCESSFUL OR CATCHES HIV. I DON’T KNOW ABOUT SAMUEL’S BUT THAT WAS DEFINITELY LL AND MAGIC’S MARRIAGES. RESPECT SHOULD’VE BEEN BEFORE EVERYTHING ELSE ……..JENNY JONES!!!

  • Akhenaton
  • JENNYJONES1

    WELL A MALE MILLIONAIRE TOLD ME THAT WHEN YOU MARRY FOR MONEY YOU PAY FOR EVERY CENT OF IT WITH YOUR HAPPINESS AND SELF RESPECT. THE HISTORY OF LL, MAGIC’S AND MANY OF RICH MEN’S MARRIAGES/RELATIONSHIPS SUPPORT WHAT HE SAID. I GUESS YOU CAN LOOK FOR YOUR SELF RESPECT AND HAPPINESS IN YOUR RED BOTTOMS AND MERCEDES WHILE HE’S OUT WITH HIS OTHER CHICK(s)………..JENNY JONES!!!

  • bashi

    No relationship is perfect everyone as fault. Tones of husbands/wives who are not famous and wealthy cheat, outside babies/ HIV/STD. I work in the healthcare field I see first hand. We are all human with lust but some can control theirs than others

  • Isignedup4this

    Yep I watched that interview and I said she has to be one of weakest women alive. He called off engagements and she was just super passive in the interview. A simple door mat. Her name should be Crumbs.

  • hottlanta

    She even wrote a book on how to keep a marriage together. Really!!!! I think I saw it on the clearance rack at Cititrends. Just because you have a penis and a ring doesn’t make you a relationship expert.

  • AnastasYah

    And Fat..

  • AnastasYah

    Gold digger Alert..

  • AnastasYah

    But blame the woman or women who cheats or even entertain broke men.Why are the women getting Amnesty?

  • hottlanta

    Awwwww this take me back when men were men. No pants on the ground, no mouth full of gold and everybody looking cracked out. Man those years were the best I wouldn’t trade them for NOTHING!!!!

  • hottlanta

    Haven’t we all gained weight. They have a bank account that surpasses their body weight a million times over.

  • hottlanta

    Why do people want trophies for stuff they are SUPPOSED to do. A lot of men can’t lean because they are always laying on their backs. Marriage was never meant to be a love contest as if those who stay married are successful and those who don’t stay married are successful. A person sometimes leaves a marriage to save themselves and their lives can be called successful as well. They can see when the relationship is over and no longer serving their purpose in life and can walk away to make themselves and their mate happy.

  • NicoleZee

    Why the hell did she stay with him after that??? Gross. She should be thankful she doesn’t have HIV or so we think. I would’ve killed him if I were her. I’m crazy!

  • NicoleZee

    They would still get paid in the divorce, so I still don’t understand why women stay with these nasty cheating rich dudes. Probably because of self-esteem issues. Most people don’t want to start over if they’ve been with the same fool since forever. When a woman gets a certain age she’s either the nurse or the purse, I’m not interested in being either one, but I’m not staying with some idiot just to have some money or someone in my bed either!

  • NicoleZee

    And she put up with all of that from an ugly rich man with HIV that treated her like rodent feces???!! Sad, just sad.

  • NicoleZee

    Rodents in New York get treated better. Sad.

  • NicoleZee

    A diseased penis. Disgusting. No way should any woman tolerate a cheater, specially one that has and spreads STDs. Gross.

  • NicoleZee

    LL cheated plenty of times. That’s why they call his wife long suffering.

  • MsPam

    Honey Hush! Where have I been?! ????

  • NicoleZee

    A tiger can’t change his stripes, neither can a cheater or a beater. There will always be women who settle for losers. Men will always have women to cheat and beat on. Sick and sad. I will never again in life allow another man to beat me, and he can cheat, but I will always walk right on out the door, I don’t give two shits what the incentive is, I can take him to the cleaners in the divorce!!!

  • NicoleZee

    Comment of the week :)!!!!!

  • NicoleZee

    I’m convinced that most men cheat and I’m also convinced that there are smart women that will always walk away. I’m not dying from AIDS and I’m not letting no man beat me to death. I’ll kill his sorry ass first next time any one of them puts hands on me.

  • sunni_daze

    All that black love

  • sunni_daze

    The way they are looking at each other.

  • bashi

    The reason they leave because they shouldn’t be married in the first place but humans over look the signs in our emotional feelings. Same as being married for 20plus yrs when the children off to college they divorce. Only reason they stay that long is because of financial situations. I’m sticking to my opinion I have seen that when the men leads in the relationship it’s more successful marriage compare to both celebrities in a relationship who wants the life light too it never work out. Last every one married for a lasting relationship that’s the objective not married to divorce then claim it was successful to a point nonsense to me ” till death do us part” .

  • hottlanta

    I am not trying to get you to change your opinion it is yours but I am not going stay with a man that is leading me to hell. He will go there by himself. Christian women don’t stay in abusive relationships because they know God will take care of them whether they are married or not. Some folks are taking the vows till death do us part to be selfish and kill their mates in murder suicide to take them with them because they see themselves as unsuccessful and a failure because the marriage isn’t working out. Is that nonsense to you as well.

  • isaiit

    Amina can suffer all she wants but Peter will never be in the position to take care of her with all those kids he has

  • Dowoop

    Oh dear! That is wayyy tooo much to put up with. I refuse to allow myself to look/feel this stupid behind closed doors never mind for all the public to see.

  • Dowoop

    He would have never been able to finish those calls. I would have lost it.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    I don’t understand why she stayed with him. Magic had absolutely no regard for her life.

  • Renee26

    That and he doesn’t have the mentality to do so…he damn near 55 and still acts like a teenaged boy

  • Dowoop

    You cannot blame another woman for what your man does. All women do not have the same morals and we cant expect another woman to have the same values that we do. What we need to do is pick men that have the same values we do.

  • Dowoop

    I’m all for the sanctity of marriage and in LL’s case if he got his hoeing out the way before getting married i can understand that. Some men are honest about what they are doing and will be upfront about it. Now i believe once you say i do you better get that hoeing out your system though.

  • Dowoop

    I think it was after…Lol.

  • isaiit

    Sad right

  • ShWa

    He made a song a long time ago apologizing to his wife so I think he was a cheater back in the day too but wised up.

  • ShWa

    Yes that was the apology song to his wife.

  • ShWa

    Hush was the name of the song LL made, someone just said it in the comments here, that was the apology song.

  • ShWa

    Oh that was u Pam, I’m doing too much heehee! 🙂

  • bashi

    where did religion come in to this. Every ethnicity under the sun with their own religion some do experience abuse yes. However it’s how you deal with. Don’t Ray Rice beat his .Does his wife live in a first world country that have every accessible to help compare to some other countries that practice different religions who don’t have access to help like America but still she stay. I would think they practice Christianity as well if I’m not mistaken.

  • friendofblog

    Crumbs. Dayum. #NoLies

  • friendofblog

    He left her azz with kids for
    Quincy Jones’ daughter until she got
    tired of him.
    And he’s rumored to be bi. All I know is he betta stay away from those Hollyweird doctors because his skin is looking like new leather.

  • APeachLikeMe

    I had to google her – Very impressive –

  • Quitedeliteful

    I’m guessing it’s not just the money because they would get a good sum in the divorce for sure. It must be the fame and the perks they would miss. I guess they would miss the perks more than their self respect….

  • Quitedeliteful

    Yup — red bottoms, fancy cars and beautiful jewelry are nice but they make cold bedfellows…

  • Quitedeliteful

    Really??? I know they always said she was an actor but I thought they were using that term loosely.

  • NicoleZee

    Probably so, plus money always wins. The older people get, they are probably less likely to want to start over or they think they can’t find anyone else. I just don’t understand how anyone can stay with someone that humiliates , disrespects, or abuses them or does that to other people. It doesn’t feel good. But for some people, having a fool is better than being alone. I completely disagree. Being alone is easy, it’s the loneliness that people can’t deal with. That is still no excuse to settle for some sorry nigga that cheats or puts hands on you. No ma’am! Contracting HIV or having bones broken in your face is not cute or funny, not one bit. I’ve been through enough shit with these sorry dudes. I’m thankful I still have my health, no diseases, and I’m still alive after surviving an abusive relationship. Never again!

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!

  • Sorry_Not_Sorry

    Exactly!!! The wives all probably still getting cheated on.
