I know I’m not the only one who has often wondered why Halle Berry has a difficult time with relationships. As hot as she is, you’d think a man would do everything in his power to make things work with her. In last year’s September issue of Vogue magazine, she revealed that she realized we are not meant to go the distance with everybody. She is currently dating French actor Olivier Martinez, who she met on the set of “Dark Tide”. Although they’ve been getting pretty serious, Halle recently revealed that the traditional form of marriage is not for her, and she won’t be getting married again.
“I wish I had known then that I was not the marrying kind. It would have saved me a lot of time, heartache and grief over the years.
I made all the wrong choices when it came to love. I have been an idiot. But, now, it is like a gift to myself – seeing more clearly and making better decisions. One thing was unavoidable. My father left us when I was young and that did affect my life. If I had a good father in my life, growing up, then I do not think I would have made the mistakes I made. I would not have been lost in love. (more…)
Halle Berry is featured on the cover of the March 2011 issue of Ebony Magazine. This is right on time as Halle is smack in the middle of a custody dispute with her daughter Nahla’s father, model Gabriel Aubry. They’ve been trading accusations back and forth for a couple of weeks now. Gabriel’s camp has accused Halle of being overly controlling and going into crazy bouts of anger. Halle’s camp has hit back with accusations of him calling her the “N” word. There have also been reports that he would go off the handle when his daughter was referred to as being “black”.
It really amazes me that one of the most beautiful women in the world finds it difficult to have a successful relationship. I used to think the men were mad to let a hottie like Halle go but now I’m not so sure. Could Halle be a difficult person to deal with? I wish I were a fly on the wall. In the interview, she opens up about her thoughts on her beauty, interracial relationships and considering her daughter to be black:
On Her Daughter’s Race
What I think is that that’s something she’s going to have to decide. I’m not going to put a label on it. I had to decide for myself and that’s what she’s going to have to decide-how she identifies herself in the world. And I think, largely, that will be based on how the world identifies her. That’s how I identified myself. But I feel like she’s Black. I’m Black and I’m her mother, and I believe in the one-drop theory. (more…)
We rarely ever see Halle giving interviews on her private life. She hasn’t given a proper interview in 3 years. Somehow, Vogue has managed to give us great insight into Halle, her thoughts on her split with her long time partner and baby’s father Gabriel, and how she views relationships now. Halle’s appearance on the cover of the fashion magazine is the first time a black woman is featured on the cover since Naomi Campbell’s 1989 cover. The only reason she is submitting now, she says, is that Vogue made her an offer she couldn’t refuse: the September cover. “What that means for a woman of color and what that means in the fashion world, what that means to pop culture, there was no way I could say, ‘No, I’m not going to be on the biggest issue of the year.’”

Halle Berry is in South Africa shooting her first movie since she gave birth. The 44- year old actress has been swimming with great white sharks as part of her starring role in new film Dark Tide. She was spotted as she prepared to shoot wearing a bikini and wetsuit.
In the movie, she plays Sara, a diving instructor who is drawn to close encounters with white sharks on an isolated island. The shooting takes place off of Seal Island where sharks prey on the thousands of seals that live on the island during the breeding season. (more…)
