Denzel and his wife of 30 years Pauletta covers the August issue of Ebony and they talk about how they’ve made their marriage last for this long…. And she addresses or shall I say indirectly addresses the mistresses that try to get in the way or how Ebony puts it.. Keeping him grounded through all the temptation. But knowing that your man cheats and you stay, kind of says alot about you. See Pauletta is from the old school days of working it out and staying with your husband through thick and thin or for better or for worse. I think if a woman wants to stay with a cheater it should be because she wants to, not because she put in “those years” because if that’s the case she’s put in some other years as well..like years of damage with setting a bad example for their children who don’t know what is and what is not acceptable in a relationship or to their self esteem.
Pauletta goes on to say:
I live with this man. I see the down part. I see the sad part. I see every part. He has and knows he has that stability in me as his wife. That gives him strength, regardless of if he misuses it. I can’t dwell on that. But I do know that gives him a great platform to go and fly.
So you see I highlighted that part….Of course she would say this and deal because all these years she was Mrs. Washington and never really Pauletta, the actress or singer. We don’t know the person because she didn’t invest thoroughly into establishing herself. Like Kobe’s wife Vanessa Bryant, she will be known as the Mrs. and not as an individual person. Her identity is tied to her husband and that’s dangerous part. This is why a man feels he can cheat. HE KNOWS YOU’RE NOT GOING ANYWHERE. Your lively hood and everything depends on him all the way. So regardless if the women doesn’t leave, the men eventually will, and that’s because they know their worth from watching you destroy your own. Anyway the latest issue is on newstands now… Check out his new movie with Mark Wahlberg called 2 Guns out August 2nd.
