Torrei Hart Shows Off New Man, Says Successful Black Men Prefer Light Skinned Women

Posted in: ,

Torrei Hart has been divorced from Kevin Hart for more than 5 years and now, as he gets engaged, Torrei is showing she is ready to move on too.

The mom of 2 stepped out with her new man Reno Rankin at the “Atlanta Exes” viewing party held yesterday, and she also showed some skin. Her daring gown has cut-out panels around both sides of her waist, and slits up to her pelvis, Torrei wore a denim short to protect her privacy.

In an interview with Cherise Nicole to promote the VH1 show Atlanta Exes, the reality star talked about getting over Kevin Hart, her tools for moving on, and how she thinks black men feel they have to date outside their race when they become successful. She said,

On coming to terms with the divorce;

“Honestly, it wasn’t all Kevin’s fault. I won’t say it was all his fault. Cause I look back now and I take ownership of some of the things I could’ve did differently. But, I did question my beauty."

On Black men dating outside the race or going for lighter skinned women

"I did question like, wow, why is it that all black men, when they reach a certain level, they have to feel like they need someone of another race, or a different skin tone on their arm? And I’m just like, well why aren’t we looked at as beautiful? We’re beautiful black queens! You know what I mean?"

You know and I support them 100% And I don’t feel like, once I make it, I gotta go to the other side! You know? And not saying, cause I’ve dated outside my race, I have, but I just don’t feel, like I need it on my arm to feel better about myself. And I just feel like, sometimes our men do.”

On how she has been coping with the divorce, and not being bitter;

“You know they say, she done went crazy! Or BITTER! And it’s like no, did you forget what you did? You know, but honestly it’s about how we react to what they do. And you know, it’s about changing your reaction. And I was hurt. I was deeply hurt, I knew this man, way before any of the celebrity and any of the fame. And we had children and I thought marriage was forever, but it’s not.”

I just have to accept this situation for what it is and move forward now. That’s when I felt like a load is off. You know I just felt free.

On the tools to move on; Torrei said;

I was like, you know I did a little bonfire in my back yard, I put his name on a list, with everybody else, who during that time, you know, who I thought had my back, but didn’t.

You know, I was like, I forgive this person. I forgive this person. And I just did a list. And I went out to my backyard and I prayed on it. And I lit on fire and I buried it and gave it to God. And when I tell you honey, like chills. I really felt like freedom. I really felt free. So, that was just something I did. You learn what tools you need to get passed certain experiences that bring you down.”
