Taye diggs dating wikipedia wildest dating show moments
During an interview with Van Lathan for the “Red Pill Podcast” (Feb.
21), actor Taye Diggs called out the black women that reacted negatively to his marriage to Idina Menzel, a white actress.
Calling it quits with Menzel also inspired Taye to create a new television show centered around single dads."Going through this separation, I'm realizing all of the adventures that I've been going through and I thought that this is would make a really good television program, if you followed a bunch of other single fathers in an urban setting and we were able to kind of take a peek into their lives and what goes into being a father, being solo, having a career, trying to have a dating life, dealing with baby mamas and nannies and sitters and schedules," Diggs said.
Ima be real with you, I remember the moment that my mother realized that your wife was White.
And when it happens to you personally, even though you understand the logic, there’s trauma there,” he said.
“I don’t know if I could ever mess with a white girl now. That goes against who I am as a person.” During a 2015 press tour for his children’s book “Mixed Me,” Diggs admitted he was comfortable with his mixed-race son not having an identity rather than to chose one race over the other.
My mother was like, ‘Aahh” She told me- – oh it hurt my feelings—at 13—I was reading this magazine. I want to marry her.’ And she said, ‘Oh honey, you’re going to marry a White woman.’ At 13.
But to this day, whether I’m out at the club or whatever, I still get, ‘I thought you only liked White girls.’ It’s been a life lesson of realizing you can’t cow tow.
