My ex husband and I aren’t fighting, we still talk because our divorce wasn’t a bitter divorce, we understood each other and decided to get the divorce. We’re still friends.

For me I don’t marry because of money, I don’t love a man because of his money. If you’ve money it’s a bonus. If you’re a street sweeper and I think I like you and I’m in love with you, I’ll even buy the brooms for you to sweep the streets with.”
