The iconic MC went on to drop some knowledge about love and divorce.

“If you have anything to protect going into a marriage, get a prenuptial agreement so there’s no confusion if it comes to an end,” she advised. “As a matter of fact, make sure you protect all of your assets with proper insurance, financial and estate planning. Our people are far behind the wealth gap; get a financial education and do what is in your power to protect what God has blessed you with.”

“Focus on love and truth. Be careful what you say or imply about others. No one is perfect and we all have something that we need grace to cover.
