Torrei Hart, comedienne, upcoming “Atlanta Exes star and ex-wife to Kevin Hart held an exclusive interview with Sister 2 Sister‘s Magazine Jamie Foster Brown, about life post her relationship with Kevin Hart. She discusses the challenges she faced emotionally, her healing time and her thoughts on Kevin Hart’s approach in dealing with the post-split :
“It’s so painful. I just feel like there’s ways to do things, too. When we first split up, I took a lot of time to just heal. I feel like he hasn’t even really healed, because he went from one relationship right into another relationship.”
As discussed in an earlier blog post “Kevin Hart Talks About Eniko as Wifey Material and It Does Not Take Away From His Ex-Wife!” Kevin Hart discusses his satisfaction with his current relationship with Eniko Parrish. He has in more than one occasion described his current girlfriend as “my rib“.
“The way that she stepped up to the plate and just accepted me for who I am, accepted me as a man coming in with kids and not even blinking an eye. I think she’s shown that she’s a woman who has my back. And that’s what you want when you’re in the position that I’m in and you’re in the entertainment business. Everybody’s going to question everything you do. Everybody’s going to question everything you say, but you have to come to a strong decision of what’s right and what’s wrong. And right now, the one thing I can say is right is having that woman in my life.”
During Torrei’s interview she expresses how she is not surprised that Eniko is a great rib or support system for him, because Kevin is already a successful millionaire. She describes a huge contrast in being a “rib” when everything is “peachy”, then being a “rib” when a man is struggling to reach his aspirations and you are his support system:
“It’s easy to be somebody’s rib when you’re a millionaire. That’s just me being as honest as I can. Me, for instance: You’re working at City Sports and I’m taking you to your shows, you’re driving my car, you’re crashing my car several times, and I’m still there for you, supporting you, went out and got a job for the phone company and still making sure I got your back so you can pursue your dreams…That’s what ribs do!”
Torrei further discusses how her current relationship with ex-husband Kevin has improved:
“We go through our periods, but I would say that we’re getting closer. We’re working through stuff.”
Ending any relationship, you must allow yourself to heal. However, everyone heals in different ways. Some people need to take time to themselves and others feel the healing process begins once they allow themselves to open their heart to another. There is no right or wrong way about it. As long as you eventually reach your “happy place” in life and move forward from the negative energy that resulted in the demise of your previous relationship…You have succeeded.
“Rib” in your side:
I somewhat agree with Torrei, it is hard to fully appreciate the term “Rib” in reference to someone else, when you have been in the trenches with a man before he became who he is. Not to discount Eniko, as she may have well would have been that woman who would have held it down before everyone knew Kevin Hart as “Kevin Hart”. But, to Torrei’s credit, I would probably also wince or give Kevin the “side eye” when making the reference of “Rib”. Can he use another term? However, Eniko is giving Kevin the support system that he feels he needs today in his current state. That’s all that matters. While he may be a millionaire, the famous saying goes “More money, more problems!”. With fame comes the positive and the negative. Maybe, to Torrei’s point, the negative is easier to swallow when you can buy what your heart’s desire. But who am I to judge as an observer, an ex-girlfriend, ex-wife, friend or whatever. Every bond is unique. I support their union as long as they are both happy and pushing each other to be their best.
