Who is dating vanessa williams
My mother's always been extremely independent, and my father never gave her ultimatums: She was able to be who she wanted to be.
My expectations for a relationship were modeled on what I learned from them.
So I made the first move—he would never have approached me because I was with my daughter.
I found out he was from Buffalo, which is also where my mom is from.
It’s great when that syncs up with what you want, but sometimes it might be later in your life when that happens. My husband was my manager so we were working on my career together along with raising children.
That means you have to be independent and make decisions.
The kids' schedules came first and my career came second, even though I was the main moneymaker. When I'd go away to promote albums, my husband came with as my manager, which was a good thing. You hope your partner understands the kids have to come first a lot of times.
The bottom line is that my family and my children will always come first, and that was something he had to come to grips with for it to work.
I’m not sure if he would consider it a sacrifice, but that’s our agreement.
