Bitchie breaks down why . . .It sucks to be Halle Berry.
Most of us were first introduced to Halle as the junkie girlfriend in Spike Lee’s Jungle Fever (or Halle’s one and only turn as a video vixen in R. Kelly’s ‘Honey Love’). The attraction was instant. By the time 1992’s Boomerang hit theaters, Berry was the new brown skin ‘It’ girl. But it was her portrayal as the title character in Alex Haley’s Queen that would solidify her cross over appeal. People Magazine hailed her as one of the 50 most beautiful in the world, she became a red carpet mainstay and landed on the wish list of just about every heterosexual male in the free world.
Meanwhile, amidst the rise to fame, in 1993 Berry met and married baseball player David Justice, whom she’d divorce three years later citing Justice’s infidelity. Four years later Halle would begin dating R&B singer Eric Benet, whom she’d later marry and then divorce, following the admission of his many infidelities.
So what’s with all these dudes cheating on Halle Berry? We’ll get back to that in a second.
