Who would have ever guessed New Edition singer Ronnie DeVoe and his wife, Shamari DeVoe, were in an open marriage?!
Shamari spilled her “Real Housewives of Atlanta” newbie tea while playing a game at Cynthia Bailey‘s barbecue and Ronnie was not happy about it at all.
He asked his wife, “You felt like it was cool to just talk about that at the table?” He then ask, “Was y’all drinking?”
Ronnie told Shamari, “Everybody don’t have to know every damn thing!”
The Blaque singer explained how she was young when they got married in 2006 and she still had things she hadn’t “experienced.”
So rather than cheating on Ronnie, she approached him with the idea of an open marriage and he agreed.
Unfortunately, their open marriage almost ended their marriage.
When I first met Ron, I just turned 21-years-old. I didn’t experience everything that I needed to experience.
That’s why I went to him and I asked him instead of cheating on him.
It just kinda backfired. My open relationship was a little more deeper than his.
There were times where we were both hurting and we didn’t want to deal with it anymore and we thought about walking away from each other.
You can see from the clip, even discussing their past open relationship is a painful topic for Ronnie and I’m sure that’s why he didn’t want their business in the streets and broadcast to the world.
Some RHOA fans suggested maybe “Love & Hip Hop” would be a better fit for Shamari.
