Tracee Ellis Ross

Tracee Ellis Ross is enjoying life as a 45-year-old single lady with no desire to have children. The actress opened up about her single life in the November issue of InStyle magazine.

Ross says she is "very pleased" with her single life after dating a series of emotionally unavailable single industry men.

"It's sort of fascinating to be 45 and single and childless," she said, adding that she is "happily single, not at home crying about it."

At first the Black-ish star bristled at the "very personal questions" asked by the interviewer. But then she embraced the opportunity "to choose [to] become fodder for public conversation."

She continued:

"Some of the ability to reflect on what I really want comes from pushing up against a society that shames me for not having the expected trappings [a husband and children]. I'm very pleased with my existence these days. Have I had to learn to make friends with loneliness? Yes. I think if I were in a relationship, it would be the same."

Ross is the middle daughter of R&B/Soul legend Diana Ross.

Growing up in a fish bowl, surrounded by unlimited wealth and celebrities, helped give Ross a perspective on life that most women never experience.

Rather than rush into a loveless marriage, she chooses to love herself and to just say 'no'.

When asked about her self-care regimen, the Team Natural, makeup-free star shared:

"The 'I woke up like this' thing? Bulls--t! Black-ish is in HD, darling! There's no Vaseline on the lenses, At 18 I might ave woken up like this. At 45 I f---ing work for it. I love potato chips more than anything in the world, and so I work out hard. I put masks on my face I take care of myself. And, by the way, to me self-care does not mean going to the spa, It's learning to say no. It's snowing yourself so you can make choices that are an expression of you. That's self-care."

  • Karen Brady

    I love you Tracee.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™
  • ViolettaBliss

    I heart Tracee....

  • hottlanta

    Yassssss that is ms. Ross daughter .Gotta be brave 2 b single n happy as a mofo. Betta say it

  • hi-liter

    Shit, I wouldn't be too mad if I was her. Children and marriage aren't meant for some.

  • Mz_Opinionated

    Her and Gabrielle Union are the same age with the exact same birthday and they are both beautiful. I have heard Tracee say this same thing time and time again. She is probably more peaceful being single. The last person I remember her being linked to is Akon's younger brother.

  • TransMichelle

    I don't know. It's like those fat girls who always claim they so happy being fat then after they lose weight they talk about how miserable they were being fat.

  • Coy little wink

    Real talk! Kids are wonderful but they can stress you out with worry.

    My best friend is a guy who is divorced. He always told me to enjoy being single...marriage is what society says you should do but its not all its cracked up to be...

  • LYRICS

    I hear her loud and clear!!

  • ohdearme

    Good for her, I wouldn't marry just to marry and having children in the mix without the marriage isn't worth it to me. Enjoy and love yourself and life how you wish.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    People in relationships can be lonely as well. It's entirely possible to be happy and single. Particularly when you are successful and you don't "need" a man.

    That being said, there is something to be said about male energy and companionship. True, you can enjoy that without a relationship, but it's different (IMO) when you're in a healthy committed relationship.

  • Navybeans95

    I feel her on so many levels..my kids are grown and gone and I have one grandchild... but y'all, I can be alone whenever I want because I refuse to live with anyone...I'm like kicking people out when I'm tired of looking at them....No, u can't spend the night, I want my queen size all to myself...lol..my food is all mine...no u can't use my favorite soap...love it

  • supastar

    I love her, she looks good. Good for her.. She has come a long way from Girlfriends.

  • SpiceGirl

    Oh wow....I thought she was my age(just got her by 3 tho)....any who...still looks good....I'm not single...but I am childless.... And I love it! About to be a Great Auntie..so life is good.

  • Navybeans95

    And it's better to know this early so you're not wasting time...real talk..

  • dru and neil

    That part rang so true!

  • Dollface

    Yea... i agree a 100%! The world pressures women into thinking they're supposed to have husbands and children. Not me!!!! I can do without both.

  • dru and neil

    Not the same thing. Some folks do not like kids, they just don’t like them. She may just be tired of men in general. The older I get the more women I meet that don’t have the energy to be good girlfriend anymore, it’s work. When you’re young, you don’t mind because you still believe in the fairy tales, get older and you start looking at men very differently. They are work.

  • Trace da Ace

    Amen sis!! I'm happy that she is in a a good place with it. Some folks feel the opposite, but each their own. Create and maintain your own happiness, on any and all levels.

  • Lanegra??

    A whole job. I'm in a committed relationship and between that in my career it's a lot. Add on being a step mom. I'm exhausted smh. But I was happy alone which allowed me to go into a relationship knowing myself and my boundaries.

  • hi-liter

    True, I definitely agree.

  • Bashi22

    Auntie Sandra kind of gal childless

  • Alextra Ballard

    I agree with you...Motherhood is definitely not meant for some.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I need to have this attitude until I have kids. If Kenya is preggo at 47 surely I can’t wait

  • Kimocha

    Well... I'm single and in my 40's and childless too... I have a son who is grown and moved out long time ago... So it's just been me for a while now and I can relate to Ms. Ross very much and have to say I love being single too. I get to walk in my crib how I want.... Come home when I want... Cook or not cook if I want... Do whatever the hell I want and I Love It!

  • Anonymouse

    You’re not childless if you have children

  • Alextra Ballard

    Tracee is definitely a style Icon...she is truly amazing

  • Anonymouse

    Life isn’t meant to be spent alone. Marriage is incredibly beautiful and blessed when you wait for the person God ordained for you. Children are a wonderful added blessing.

    Ms. Ross is missing out.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I always love what she has to say, so authentic, such a lack of pretense, just real talk!

  • Renee26

    I like Tracee

  • the chosen one

    i will high 5 you on that.

  • the guest

    Agreed.

    However, I do think women who face the world having never married and never having never had children are courageous.

  • Renee26

    Ummmm she's still waiting patiently for that spouse you speak of... Good mates don't grow on trees.... and there's nothing wrong with not wanting to have children out of wedlock.

    Based on the write up it appears that her life is still full of pleasures regardless

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    I can't relate to this. But I lover her spirit! #movingon

  • Kimocha

    You're right... But I was thinking more about little children in the home when I said that...lol

  • Fire & Ice

    ???

  • Mrs. S. O.

    I don't think she's shunning male "energy" but if she has never met her match then there's not much she can do at this stage in her life. At 45, you have to just let go and let God. If the right man didn't show up in your prime then he's not coming lol

  • Mrs. S. O.

    Childless is childless. That means no birthdays, holidays, graduations, etc EVER....except for other relatives.

  • Mrs. S. O.

    It's not that hard lol. The women who are childfree and never been married can't miss what they've never had lol

  • oshh16

    Taraji would beg to differ. Love or the possibilities of love don't expire after a certain age. If that is what one desires, never lose hope.

  • Mrs. S. O.

    Many came and left this world with no children or a spouse. They lived and died like everybody else. And the women with no kids live longer statistically.....look at Betty White, she's 96.

  • Mrs. S. O.

    You're inspired by a woman who 1. isn't married yet and 2. her relationship has not stood the test of time. Get a grip on reality lol. Taraji was dipping it and doing it back in the day which is why she has an adult son now.

  • Kimocha

    Ok... Got it... I'm thankful for my son too... he the only one I got.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Tracee is bae in my head lol...she is right there's nothing like being a single successful black woman but I wondered when she realized that being a mom wasn't for her??? I dont know if I want to be married but I do want to have atleast one child...the thought of me leaving this earth and not having children literally frightens me...

  • Blaque Mahogany

    At no point did I say she was shunning male energy, nor did I imply she was desperate for a relationship. I actually said the opposite.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Children are a wonderful added blessing.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Yes they are but they are not for everyone. Perhaps the path that 'God has ordained for her' doesn't include a mate and children. Maybe whatever lessons she needs to learn on this earth require her to be single...

  • Judi Jupiter

    Agreed.. I want NONE... I'm 38, as are my friends and 8 out of 10 of us are childless. We love being able to go out when we want to the things we want, travel when we want. It's awesome. I know so many people with kids and 85% say its overrated or they wish they would have waited.. I'm good...

  • Guest

    Exactly. I like Tracee tho.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    So beautifully stated by Tracee!!! Know You. Everything Is Not for everybody.

  • oshh16

    I gave an example of love after the age of 45 and there are countless others. . . Be it first marriages, second or third. Love does not have an age limit like I said.

  • monique

    Maybe these stars should date regular guys.

  • monique

    I tried to ignore that sentence. Some people just don't understand.

  • ViolettaBliss

    Maybe she could not have a child. I wonder why everyone jumps to the conclusion that a woman without children simply did not want them.

  • ViolettaBliss

    Not everyone is lucky enough to find that person to have a beautiful family with. And not every woman is able to have children. Ms Ross sounds like she is doing just fine....

  • tia

    Marriage is indeed a beautiful thing and children are a blessing.
    However, marriage is not an ACCOMPLISHMENT either. I know plenty of married "miserable and lonely" folks and individuals that have no business being the vessels to this thing we call "life." To each it's own and good for her.

  • tia

    Marriage and having children are not an accomplishment. It's not for everyone.

  • Trey

    fascinating == lonely

  • http://batman-news.com MzTee

    I turned 50 this year. I'm single and childless as well. I love ME and it shows in everything I do. I am living my best life and reject society's definition of a successful woman. I define success for me -- no one else can do that for me.

  • TRUTHbeabsolute

    I completely understand.

  • http://batman-news.com MzTee

    Child...when I read that sentence I was like, no boo. She should have written child free or empty nester.

  • NaeNae2015

    "However, marriage is not an ACCOMPLISHMENT either"

    THIS!!!

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    I can dig it

  • hottlanta

    Wow she is missing out on swollen ankles high blood pressure n pregnancy diabetes. She is truly missing out on tractor trailer truck size labor pains and she gotten see the stats from CDC of women who actually died in childbirth n wonder is she gonna be a stastistic as well. She gonna miss that foul order onw has after giving birth. She gonna truly miss the feeling of being stitched up like a turkey at thanksgiving. Lets talk about the glorious post pardum depression all new mothers love that have them thinking they r crazy. She gonna truly miss the baby sucking on her once perky breasts that now look like cow udders. She gonna truly miss that baby weight gain that no matter what u do goes nowhere. She is truly gonna miss even though she is married n all of that stuff only 2 wake up one day she gotta raise the kid all by herself when she thought once she got married n had the kid she wad gonna live happily ever after . u see no one ever tells women these things b4 the baby comes. We fall in love with the cuteness n say ahhhhh. I gave my coworker the 411 about having kids she said no one never told me those things. I said women lie about that all the time then got the nerve to attack other women who made the concious choice not 2 have kids.

    Sorry azz husband n jeffrey dahmer kids ==miserable n wanna b single again

  • Evelyn Lattimore

    I would be depressed as shit.

  • hottlanta

    If she was a man she wouldnt have 2 explain herself yet women made Steve harvey rich n a relationship expert after 3 wives.

  • Junkanoo

    Lies she probably cries on her pillow nitely. With so many people looking for someone it's a shame it's so hard to find someone decent but it is

  • Applebootay

    Single does mean Dackless...know the difference....

  • Applebootay

    ???

  • hottlanta

    Being alive n living your life in fod grace is a beautiful thing. Marriage was not meant 2 keep score as 2 one up somebody that is single as if u e better than them. When l see women do that l dont say a word. They wound up being divorced sooner or later. Remember when tamar would flash that ring as if she won the lottery. Now she wears a glove on that hand like it is snowing outside.

    But I was happy alone which allowed me to go into a relationship knowing myself and my boundaries.

  • Rayne

    That’s what I’m seeing.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    I so agree with all you've said. bottom line, we need to learn to be content with self, no matter our 'status' because the more at peace we are with self, the less likely we are to allow some knucklehead to jeopardize that peace just so we can say we 'got a man'

  • dru and neil

    Yes when you are involved with someone and actually want them to be happy, possibly progress to real commitment or marriage you have to be on duty 24/7 for your man. It’s a second job keeping your home perfect in case he pops on over, staying a certain size, keeping yourself up physically at all times, i.e skin, hair and nails, (I had a man once who seriously would notice when I needed a fill) keeping food on the ready to prep, maintaining a rosy disposition towards his ex, the kids, his friends, his fam, keeping a regular f*ck schedule even when your tired, staying completely smooth and shaven 24/7, putting on a show at work functions...so much time is spent strategizing your relationship, sometimes you even lose friends. A lot of the stuff we do as women, is to turn corners in our relationships, and it’s a ton of WORK a huge balancing act.
    Folks get tired...and don’t let him get sick with a cold, might as well cancel all plans, he will need you more than a new born baby.

  • hottlanta

    The trophy goes to________________. Dr. Phil n Oprah made a lot of money off people who live in dackless marriages. I be damned if l go thru all of that shyt 2 get married n a mofo tell me all l am gonna get is a hug everyday. Yall betta check yall phones for an emergency broadcast signal n it wont b no test either.

  • Blaque Mahogany

  • dontgetblocked

    I find that a lot of women are jealous of a single, childless women. We can do whatever we want and buy whatever we want. Most of us have great careers. Not everyone wants to come home to a whining man and whining children. Many mothers convince themselves that being a mother is the end all be all. Nope! Enjoying your life to the fullest is really living...even if it's by yourself.

  • dontgetblocked

    Why? She has a loving family. She's rich and famous. The reality is women stuck in loveless marriages are crying themselves to sleep at night. Not Traci.

  • Bashi22

    My think they used these influencer people. To controls population now some black women wants to be like Tracee. Mind you Tracee comes from money both patents. She as tons of brothers and sister with nieces and nephews. I’m just doing a conspiracy theory. Lol just another view because Tons of blackwomen are doing great only need a baby and husband. Let me stop

  • Bashi22

    Companionships is great for mind and soul. One that’s perfectly imperfect to each other.

  • Jethro
  • Junkanoo

    I like her but it's not too much to ask to have a decent partner come on most want some one to chat with other than friends, family or people online.

  • T Willis

    Oh, they most definitely prop up specific individuals to program a message. That’s why one of the biggest pop stars dances with her crotch out and appears illiterate. It’s all about programming a specific image, lifestyle, physical features that signal extreme attractiveness verses the latter. There is a reason for everything. Even Ms. Ross’s message.

  • T Willis

    We’ve become individualistic society. I wouldn’t be surprised if she genuinely just doesn’t want them.

  • Coy little wink

    No its not but if you don't have one that doesn't mean you cry at nite...and just because you have one doesn't mean you don't cry at nite! Happiness comes from within...circumstances are external

  • T Willis

    Lol yes that’s exactly it

  • Junkanoo

    It's hard to gauge where black women are some are OK with a career and relationship free others are searching high and low with no luck. Sometimes I think being single is not good but relationships take a lot of work if your lucky enough to find someone worth count your blessings if not try not to feel bad about .

  • T Willis

    And what about the large amount kids that become responsible, respectful members of society? Why do we have to focus on the negative to counter a point? If you go through life being too self-aware of the negatives in every situation, then you’ll never experience the beauty that life can truly offer.

  • hottlanta

    Really. U c what happened 2 mary j. He was trying 2 get checks for his whole family. Sherri shephard ex regular guy husband had her thinking wanted marriage n a baby soooooo bad. Now we c why he wanted it so bad. He wanted a check once a month. Imma b like Oprah sex me n get your shyt n go home.

  • Bashi22

    Good point black are easily influenced they don’t used critical thinking.

  • hottlanta

    Chile these negoes dont die they multiply.

  • Quitedeliteful

    People aren't lying when they say they don't want children....

  • SweetTEE

    2 sides of this here coin. Some women are really ok being single with no kids- the others want just that and some of them put on a smile and say they are ok, but really they haven't found the right one.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Not only are they a lot of work but their ding-dings might not work. Who the hell wants to be bothered with that???

  • T Willis

    I’ve never been a fan of Ms. Ross. I don’t find her attractive (NEVER!), not now, and not 15-20 years ago. I think she’s an overrated actress and “fashion/style icon”, who’s fame rest solely on her mama’s career. I can see her not being built for marriage or kids. Narcissist usually aren’t. Yes, there are women and men who go through life never having that yearning to start a family or whatever. However, I feel like celebrities who have a platform should trend carefully when speaking so flippantly about their choice to singledom lol. The wording in her comments come off a bit shallow lol. I mean, I ain’t 45, but I am 33 with no children and unmarried, and I’m not pressed for either option, however, if I had to made a statement about my lifestyle and/or life choices, I would be way more cautious in my wording. Children and marriage, are both sensitive subjects, especially amongst black women (which appear to be the demographic that she’s targeting) who, for the most part, aspire to those social milestones.

    I just think her individualistic lifestyle and careless delivery is ... a little alarming... although not surprising considering she grew up in extreme wealth with (probably) little awareness of the effect that words and the delivery of said words can have.

  • Judge Mental Will

    Just like her character on Girlfriends. Life imitates Arts eh....

  • hottlanta

    Married folks always talking smack about single women but when they need some money who do they run to. They feel like u don t have husband or kids u got disposable income 2 give 2 them. Be counting all your vacation trips more than u do.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Tracee Ross(whom I worked with more than once) was not what I expected her to be.

    But a lot of men find her VERY attractive. White & black. So it shouldn’t be hard for to find a man.

  • Malcom Flex

    Good for her I wish more black women would have the good sense not to procreate since most black (in america) births are out of wedlock and kids in single parent homes are deprived more. Nothing to argue or debate about.

  • Malcom Flex

    She's hiding in plain sight.She likes the ladies....

  • Malcom Flex

    Lies. She sitting on piles of millions of dollars she earned and from her mama Miss Ross. Plus she dates females she's not lonely

  • dru and neil

    My friend broke it to me that that’s what I got to look forward to when I feel like dating again now that we are older, erectile dysfunction. She said her mans is already shut down and they are only early 40s. Great.

  • Malcom Flex

    We need more Tracee's too many dumb and broke black females breeding with dumb and broke community dick. Black people aren't going anywhere. Tons of black women are single mothers and struggling but yall keep lying, though.

  • Malcom Flex

    WHY? She's fit, pretty, got millions. While I'm guessing you're a striving single mother of two?

  • SoChlo

    I feel people who talk about they are happily single, happily unattached to anyone who truly loves them unconditionally are lying to themselves. You can’t escape your humanity. Humans are social beings and have an urge towards intimacy. Pretending you’re subhuman and feel completely fulfilled being alone (in the sense of intimacy) is false. Just my opinion.

  • Malcom Flex

    Especially not black women as most are never married single mothers.

  • Malcom Flex

    Yall are smart. Most of the women in my family are single mothers and they ALWAYS be needing money and babysitting.

  • Malcom Flex

    Don't do it unless you're making 6 figures or married to a hard working man.

  • Rayne

    She looks dragged to hell and back.

  • hottlanta

    How many black women on that hit show 16 n pregnant.

  • KB

    Exactly

  • KcoolMuziq

    I’m not insinuating that she does. I don’t do that.

  • hottlanta

    You got a problem with single happy women but aint got no problem with women like cardi b who married a man with a boatload of kids when she had no kids n going 2 jail every week. Kudos tracey for wanting something better n not settling 2 please the public. For that l applaud your happy single childless life for not wanting 2 bring a child into such mess. That is child abuse n thank u for wanting 2 b with a man where folks know your name and not a number like wife number 3. I see u love yourself a lot 2 not put up with the foolishness. I salute u for having relationship class which is missing 2day .

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    She has said before that she didn't want kids...but never alluded to the fact that she "couldn't" have children...

  • Quitedeliteful

    And if they get on that diabetes medication it's a wrap! Men have got to stop eating like they are 14 when they are 40! Not only that, when you do find a man who still has working parts he doesn't want to be in a committed relationship because there are so many women in need of his 'services.' I have a neighbor who is handsome, in-shape, dresses well and is an all around nice guy BUT he is out here living his best life 'dating' as many women as he chooses. He knows he has the advantage over his peers.

  • ViolettaBliss

    Why would she open herself up like that in an interview? It's not an easy thing to admit...

  • Malcom Flex

    FOH
    How many black women 16 n pregnant IN THE HOOD. I was just waiting for the liars to show up. Most black females have an out of wedlock, period. The truth may hurt and it's still the truth.

  • Malcom Flex

    I did and I do.

  • Malcom Flex

    Some black women are SMART they watched the struggle queens getting knocked up by community dack, always needing a free babysitter. I knew this thread would bring out some nonsense. Fact is most black females have an out of wedlock the ones smart enough not to poverty breed are rare.

  • Malcom Flex

    To all the black women who are waiting for marriage before they have an out of wedlock, keep up the good work. Don't listen to the liars pretending kids are free and not a lot of work without a man/husband in the house. As the kids, especially sons, suffer from mother's selfishness then they wonder why so many black males swirl, they want to have anybody that doesn't remind them of their selfish mama.

  • Logan Roberts

    Men & children will age you so quick. Proceed with caution.......

  • SweetTEE

    Umm.... did you misinterpret my statement? I did say SOME.. because my ass is one of them... I'm literally 32, no kids, single ( I am engaged though), educated and gainfully employed. I purposely did this and I have said it numerous times here. So yea, my entire comment was correct.

  • IamAllnatural

    I ?? Tracee, she’s beautiful and seems so down to earth. I totally agree with her because I’m single and childless as well. I hate when people act like I want a husband but I can’t get one. Almost any woman can get a man. I’m happily single and whoever I feel like being bothered with, then that’s who I deal with. I hear so many married people saying if they could do it all over, they would not be married. It seems like a lot of work, sacrifices, and stress. I don’t deal with any of that, which keeps me healthy and looking young.
    I don’t want to be married but I sort of, kind of want a baby. But the thought is scary because I feel like that life changing event might be depressing since I’m so used to doing whatever I want, when I want to. I won’t force anything or settle for less. I will leave it in Gods hands, what will be will be.

  • Malcom Flex

    For one I don't keep track of fonts statements here. I misread what you wrote sis, hell, I'm at work so let me get off.

    It’s not breed we just need to teach economics, entrepreneurs and e-commerce . How to eat healthy, to do basic tax, how to manage money. I guess the churches are failing. I’m quite certain there are about 20 -30 churches each inner cities. They teach them to sow seed for God and love offering. Yet still no money throwing for the above mention ( e-commerce, economic, stocks, bonds, compound interest etc.

    Just because you’re not married doesn’t mean you’re lonely and lack companionship. In these times marriage doesn’t mean much to people since the divorce rate is so high. No thanks, I’ll pass on that.

    I love Tracee. I agree with her views on self care, which is so very important. Many people sacrifice their own identities just to be in a relationship. Also, many sacrifices need to be made in a marriage. After all, you are supposed to "become one". Marriage is not for everybody. It is a ministry and a lifetime commitment to be taken very seriously. Same with becoming a parent.

  • Miss Thang

    "anyone who truly loves them unconditionally"
    No romantic love is unconditional. Please stop telling that lie. There are conditions to romantic love!!

  • SunSoy

    I assuming you will get shot by the police tomorrow with that attitude learn some respect and comply be less threatening!

  • Miss Thang

    I'll be dammmmmned if I'm going to stay with a man I no longer love or make love with. So, I know marriage is not for me. God bless all those who can handle it.

  • Lady_Elle

    There are ABSOLUTELY conditions for romantic love!

  • Miss Thang

    I wouldn't wish Camille Cosby's life on my worst enemy. I would be in the loony bin if I were her right now. Wasted your whole damn life with this nasty, horrible man.

    What, that’s terrible!?

  • Joe Friday

    If anyone is lying it’s the married people. Most are unhappy and miserable. Dealing with loneliness (yes- lonliness within the marriage), money problems, STD’s, side babies, and being tied down to a relationship while the other person is “doing their thing.” But yall want to tell us it’s peaches and cream and shame people for being single. Yeah, ok.

  • Joe Friday

    Yes!!! In the U. S. All you have to be is 18 and competent in order to get married. And people waive wedding rings around like they earned an advanced degree.

  • Li-Wright

    Hmmm....I predict that she's going to be a late comer. She's going to find a man, probably of another race, and marry late in life. It happens.

  • Eileen

    I was thinking the same thing...there is NOTHING empowering or wonderful about being inhuman! My parents were married till death do you part and my dad has been in heaven for 5 years..my mom is very wise she does not have this I dont need a man I am empowered bulsh-t mentality she still wants a relationship with a new man they were married for over 50 years.I say go for it Mom...

  • Eileen

    girl what kind of married people yo hanging around!

  • dontgetblocked

    That's interesting. I never thought about it like that.

  • Eileen

    romantic love is conditional, the love needed to sustain a marriage through everything! is unconditional

  • Eileen

    You must PRAY for the right one!

  • dontgetblocked

    I think the key is to be married to the right person. What single women are saying is that they are not going to settle. Nothing wrong with that!

  • Eileen

    Expand your horizons...I have two dates this weekend with two different gainfully employed house-owned not renters white men!

  • Eileen

    I dont know what her problem is sometimes beauty can get in the way....I guess

  • dontgetblocked

    A lot of married women would be surprised what their men really think about marriage and what he does when she's not around. Who do you think are in strip bars? Heck, they walk up to me in grocery stores trying to get with....wearing their wedding rings. If only the wives knew.

  • Eileen

    I agree with you...well spoken!!! I have expanded my horizons I am dating non-black men my how different it is

  • dontgetblocked

    70% of black children are born out of wedlock. More than any other race.

  • Eileen

    Why do black folks carp whine and b-tch so NEGATIVELY about marriage. I was married for 28 long years and it was a "marriage" and eventhough we divorced I dont regret one moment of being married to him!!! I am now dating another wonderful man and I am excited about the future...

  • Eileen

    yuck no intimacy...

  • Eileen

    you mean ...shut up LOL Ms. Cosby choose her position and she will get through this...

  • dontgetblocked

    White women tend to have more family support. The mother usually has a father or stepfather, mother, grandparents and more to help out. Because they're white, they get jobs easier and move up. Then because white men like to marry, they get a husband and add children. Suddenly, they go from a single mother to married mother who is gainfully employed living in a nice home. Black mothers stay single due to our weak men and struggle to raise their children.

  • dontgetblocked

    She is not and never has been a beauty. She has style, a nice butt, and curly hair...which men like. She's a high-yella mixed girl. To some people that's perfection. The only thing I like about her is that she's funny and not afraid to make a fool out of herself.

  • dontgetblocked

    They also want you to babysit their bad azz kids because "You have nothing to do". Or..."You only have to worry about yourself." Yes, bish. I made this choice. Don't throw your hectic azz lifestyle on me. I'm chilling with a glass of wine. You go bathe the kids.

  • dontgetblocked

    And maybe some women can't physically have children. You never know a person's story. It's hard to adopt if you don't have a partner. I say don't judge other people just worry about yourself.

  • dontgetblocked

    You're only 32 and engaged. So you're not single and you more than likely plan to have children. We're talking about older women who are reaching the end of their child-bearing age and are single. How do you fit in?

  • Eileen

    so true!

  • TheOwley

    She's living the best life, rich beyond anyone's wildest dreams, beautiful. If anything she should get an anonymous sperm donor to avoid the "he issues" like him wanting to be a kept man, child support, etc. If you find a husband that chid is yours 100% if he decides to leave you and many do.

  • Eileen

    so sad but true!!!

  • dontgetblocked

    I've never been married so I don't complain about it. I think some people are afraid to be by themselves and always have to be in a relationship. I don't feel the need to share my time with anyone unless it's positive. If God brings a man my way who adds to my happiness...so be it. However, I'm not going to just let any fool into my space just so I can have a man. Been there. Done that. One thing I can say for sure is that the wrong man can phuck your life up.

  • Judi Jupiter

    Hell's no.. My niece is 20 and just gave birth to twins 7 months ago... I love the little munchkins, but when they start crying I avoid them like the plague...lol.. my friends decided that when it's time for us, it's time.. and we're men and women combined... loving life...

  • SoChlo

    I was referring to children as far as unconditional love.

    ouch...they been b-tch-raised by their mothers getting too into their emotions and wm ain't having it! Respect AUTHORITY!!!! but how can you do that when yo mama keep saying " my baby, my baby" I notice ww dont do that their husbands raise the boys and the boys expect it! I have seen wb get really pissed from 0-100 when their mothers try to assert authority but their dad intervenes and to let them know respect your mother because I do! Notice I dint say mama They say "MOTHER"!!! mama is too close to mammy! I'm just say-n

  • Eileen

    and that is why the majority are still democrats

  • Eileen

    there is some truth to that...God NEVER intended man or women to be alone...we need each other! Of the opposite sex of course!

  • Eileen

    then you will be happy and the child will be lonely...get te husband FIRST!!

  • Eileen

    So freaking NEGATIVE!!!

  • Eileen

    NEGATIVE AGAIN as if black women should not want a husband and family...M Lord what has happened to us...

  • Eileen

    materialistic pleasure no mention of God...

  • Eileen

    That dress was way to big on her and she has access to any man she could ever desire so whats up Ms. Tracee!!! whats really going on...really

  • Finn

    Her being unmarried isn't surprising just her being childless.... Hopefully she's living her best life..

  • Eileen

    selfish

  • Eileen

    and look who she is marrying...water seeks it on level. I wish them the best because his baby mama dont look to happy

  • Eileen

    I knw a women in her 50's with syphillus! I'm ike isn't that an old school disease ? and why do bm not get checked out when they know they have desieases?

  • hottlanta

    So freaking real. I forget 2 put on there r u ready 2 deal with a handicapped child. Yes we prepare for a NORMAL healthty baby. How r u gonna handle it when your baby comes out disfigured n handicapped. Some mothers reject their kid because no one tells them their child would come out that way. It takes a lot 2 have a baby n u know it. Stop with the liés.

  • Eileen

    it is not good to be alone...please bw stop perpetrading this crap

  • the guest

    I have an aunt who always says even when women are married we can't lose ourselves. That advice is grounding. I take care to go to a movie or lunch by myself when I can to keep a sense of self.

  • Gail

    Whatever makes you feel better about yourself....tell yourself. But, the truth is....the worthy among us have a husband, kids, degrees, AND a career.

  • Logan Roberts

    Tracee & Janet Jackson there is something about them I just never cared for ?

  • Gail

    That 'friends' sh-t gets old and meaningless. Today my husband of 25 years and I looked at our kids' birthing videos. So what if we have to schedule our European trips around our kids' internships or sporting events. There's nothing more fulfilling than watching your babies slay. NOTHING.

  • Gail

    But you HAVE you son to cherish. You're not childless, you're an emptynester. We all look forward to that day lol, but we wouldn't trade our kids for anything.

  • dontgetblocked

    Is it better to be with a man that verbally, physically, or mentally abuses you? How about a man who cheats and brings diseases and babies home? Or a man who sends you off to work while he lives off you? Most times...alone is better.

  • dontgetblocked

    But what is he bringing home to his rock...diseases and bastards?

  • ClaireHuxtable

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Agreed. You can't have a successful marriage and family if you're selfish and not willing to think long term. It's not all about you and it's not always automatically easy.
    Many people should have stayed single and/or waited to have children.

  • tintin

    I love her. She is just a chill woman

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Enjoy every moment and allow Him to send who you need when they are needed.

  • Judi Jupiter

    I'm glad for you and yours. But it's not for everybody. I think the best thing is that some people realize, instead of having babies that they dont want the responsibility. We happen to like one responsibility. Us, and there is nothing wrong with that. We have nieces, nephews, God children that complete our needs for wanting to be around children.

  • MissHarlem23

    She has a great insight on life, know your limits, alot of times people find themselves in sticky situations bec they settled for the husband and kids and are still not happy, and the fact that society is giving them a hand clap for doing the "expected" is not beneficial

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Respectful Question~ why is the wyte woman always fat to huge & marginally attractive?? I see that sooo often.
    Why is she seldom a star?

  • ClaireHuxtable

    I don't see it as being subhuman. I think we seek companionship that we feel completes us. We seek others with similar worth & expectations. By the time you're in your 30s & 40s, you no longer want to settle for less than what you value.

    Most women are done with casual s3xual h00kups at her age. They desire fulfilling permanence which may be difficult to find.

  • Jussjess25

    So. Not everyone wants kids. It's her choice. Or maybe she can't have children. Not everyone can reproduce. Stop judging HER life.

  • http://www.pureromance.com LA

    Your first paragraph is true.. All these comments on it's better married or single is crazy. I say do what makes you happy. I learned to be content and happy single, now I'm in a serious monogamous relationship. Guess what?!? I'm still happy. This works for me.

  • dru and neil

    And if you’re not Florence f*cking Nightingale you will certainly hear about it.

  • Oya Shango

    Actually, I am not judging her. I am making an honest observation based on history. Many women later begin to regret not having children or at least one child later in their lives. They do not realize the significance of it until its too late. Clearly, it is her life and her decision. However, it will be her sister's children that will someday bury her and inherit her wealth and legacy. That is a misfortune.

  • http://www.pureromance.com LA

    Whew.. I am learning now how much work a relationship is.. It's give and take, but a great journey nonetheless. I'm learning a lot about myself as well as him. I love the companionship we share. We respect and support each other. Not to mention the monogamous sex.. Lol.. This works for me.

  • Dainese

  • SweetTEE

    I was always taught that you're single until you are married. And at 32, people are already constantly asking questions and are concerned as if I'm 45. And technically I want kids, but recently found out that I have issues conceiving, so that's an issue that I think I have in common with these women.

  • SweetTEE

    You are another one who has an issue comprehending what I said. Did anything I say sound like judgment? I gave different examples based on experience...like do you really not know women who fit in all those categories? I'm having issues myself....**deep sigh**

    Because she thinks being a mom is about fendi strollers n how many likes she gets on the internet.

She is raising the baby in an abusive environment. Mothers who luv their kids dont raise them in abusive environments

  • dontgetblocked

    You never know. Maybe she couldn't have children physically or some other circumstance. That's why people shouldn't judge. You never know why a person is childless.

  • hottlanta

    Some people when they die gives all of their money 2 charity bcas their alive kids wasnt shyt.

  • SoChlo

    I don’t mean intimacy in terms of sex, I meant it in terms of being close and forming a bond. In a healthy relationship, no one knows you bettering or accepts you more than your partner. I think our points are the same. People seek that level of companionship which is totally normal and human nature. It’s not a bad thing to admit that.

  • SoChlo

    Exactly!! I would hate to be that jaded. All of the married people I know and in my circle (myself included) are very happy and consider our spouses our best friends.

  • SoChlo

    *sigh* I didn’t say unmarried people are lonely and lack companionship. I said it is human nature to seek intimacy (not meaning sex) and companionship from other people.

  • Renee26

    She didn't mention materialistic things either... No need to reach for negativity just because she was born into money.

    She discussed self care and being confident in who she is which gives me the impression that she's a very grounded individual. She doesn't need to profess her praise to God in an interview to appease bible thumpers... Her spirituality is HER business

  • teather

    Funny! I can relate. It's interesting. I'm a year or so older than she. Ppl freak out when you say you have no kids. They freak out even more when you don't have a man, dog or bird. LOL! There's nothing at all depressing about it. My peace of mind is at its highest. I can come/go as I please. When I want "company" that's the easiest thing in the world. I have no responsibility but to myself and my parents. I feel SO good. I am not tarnished by a old relationship; I love love. I am older and wiser and can recognize what's best for me. If you never spent any time alone, it would probably break you. I don't get "lonely" per se. Sometimes I guess you get sorta melancholy over having to do EVERYTHING yourself. Tracy doesn't have this issue with her personal assistants and such. It does get tiring. Yet I am blessed happy and ready to mingle when the time presents itself. In the meanwhile, I'm healthy peaceful and happy! :)

  • teather

    Tracy is wise. I like how she doesn't take herself too seriously. She may need a bit too much attention, but forgive her, SHE has time! ;) love her style and her attitude. She's a beauty.

    well at least she has four living brothers and sisters as well as nieces and nephews that love her. a lot of folks don't even have that while not marrying or having kids, but no matter what she says I think she is very very lonely and ALL of her siblings are married now with at least one child except for her

    Again, it is not time era's that I am referencing. There is just a stage of life that a woman goes thru that forces her to reflect on her life. Part of it is hormonal and part of it is how we are made. It is difficult to explain without making it appear to be a judgement call against her or any woman . You appear young, but someday when you past menopause, you might remember this dialogue and say "now I know what she means." . . . blessings to you.

    I pray to find a partner in life that will RESPECT/LOVE/SUPPORT me. But the way these men moving to get married or have kids w/a man is to set myself up for SingleMotherhood straight up. I'd rather have no kids & my freedoms then have children and struggle. #DeadSerious My siblings have more then ENOUGH children for me to satisfy my mothering urges.

    You don't have to find, build or be in love with a stranger. You can be in love with yourself. Go ahead Tracy. I'm not into feminism at all. There's no requirement to marry in this life. Just have your burial instructions in a will.

    We all gonna die without children in the coffin. I have a child who is now an adult with her own husband and children. I am proud of her. But, having children is overrated. I don't care who buries me. You can be happy with or without children.

    She has a few coins and celebrity. Trust that men are coming at her. She just hasn't run into THE ONE. You can be lonely in a marriage too!

    You are not alone if you have some kind of network: friends, co-workers, family, etc. It doesn't always take a husband and children to alleviate loneliness.
