In a recent interview at Radio One Fest in Miami, Monica dished on her relationship with hubby Shannon Brown. The couple, who met on the set of her “Love All Over Me” video have been married for two years and counting. While talking with T.T. Torrez, the singer recalled how she met and fell in love with Shannon, her thoughts on having her relationship on reality TV and more.
On how they met:
We met on the set of my video shoot “Love All Over Me.” That was the first time I had ever laid eyes on him, but I knew it wouldn’t be the last. It was instantaneous. He was very genuine. He’s so easy on the eyes. You kind of get over the outer appearance doing what I do after a while. “It doesn’t take that long in this business, you see how ugly people are on the inside, so with him is was really interesting I think to me that the first time we met he was talking about his grandmother.”
On fighting the relationship at first:
I fought a lot of it because I was a single mom with two small boys so I was fighting it. I stated praying for confirmation. Sometimes as a woman you have to be OK with not knowing all the answers. I started asking for confirmation and I enjoyed every second with him instead of thinking so much and try to map out how it should be. I sat back and let him be a man and let him lead him into what we are now.”
On doing a reality TV show with Shannon:
We are new in our marriage, it’s only been two years. So cameras following us around right now, no. But maybe later. It’s not anything that I am against, but I think us building a foundation, we don’t need that right now.”
Very wise woman! I’m sure she doesn’t want to fall prey to the reality TV curse that seems to plague relationships. You can just out the rest of interview over at Radio One.
