Halle Berry’s ex Eric Benet and Prince’s ex Manuela Testolini are engaged and planning to wed this summer, and they both bring a lot of baggage to the relationship. Manuela (she’s Egyptian and Italian) was a lifelong Prince FAN who wormed her way into a job at Paisley Park, became an ardent Jehovah’s Witness with him, ended up his assistant, and eventually his wife. After five years, SHE filed for divorce in 2006. Singer Eric Benet struggled to retain his fan base after his wife Halle Berry labeled him a “sex addict” and packed him off to sex rehab in an attempt to patch up their failing marriage. Hopefully they both learned from their previous experiences.

    DAMN! That woman is HUGE! I can’t even envision her with the tiny purple one, she must have felt like she was having sex with a child! And check out those FEET!

    If Prince was going to have sex with someone smaller, it would have to be Vern Troyer’s sister.

    Change the face and clothing and she could be a Kardashian or Lopez.

    Survivors who endured any closely linked freak-selfish-artist relationship with Bloviating Prince or Halle deserves a few precious years of normal happiness with a nice person.

    I wonder if Halle Berry is jealous of Eric getting married. Seems she does not want any of her ex husbands or boyfriends Gabriel Aubry) getting close with anyone. She must think no one could possibly be as beautiful and desirable as her.

    I’m confused? She’s a hard core jevoha? How did she meet Eric benet? Jeovah followers are usually escorted everywhere by two other jeovahs women.
    Does she go and ask for money for those books on Saturday and preach the word of Jehovah Will she be converting the sex junkie to follow the word and follow Eric like a submissive slave listening to her husband.
    Sounds like a hard core celebrity chaser than a religious follower.

    OOOH! A story about nobody and a chick we’ve never heard of.

    Sounds like a match made in heaven, or not?

    I wouldn’t call a successful songwriter, recording artist, and producer a nobody. He’s had a string of R&B hits beginning in 1996. His most recent single Sometimes I Cry reached No. 1 on the Hot Adult R&B Songs Chart late last year.

    how come her feet are huuge?
    …..WAS SHE BORN AS A MAN, folks?

    She’s hardly huge, but those stretchy pants are not flattering, neither is the camera angle from which this photo was taken. The photographer must have been crawling on the floor.

    If she became a Witness just to keep Prince happy, I’m sure she’s thrown off that religion by now.

    Bettye Bluejay’s comment gave me a good laugh. Too funny.

    Bad camera angle for sure on Manuela Testolini.

    she’s much smaller than you!

    Opportunists, both of them. They deserve each other.

    Her name easily translates to Manuel Testicles. And she DOES look like a transexual come to think of it. That could explain the feet.

    Reta you must be a person of unseen beauty to feel you can criticize every woman on the planet.

    Meg: you are wrong. I do NOT criticise every woman on the planet. Funny how you pick ME to knock for my comment while everybody ELSE gets a pass. But on other posts where I stick UP for somebody, esp a woman I get knocked for those comments too. So you can’t have it both ways, now, can you? And why only ME do you object to I wonder? It really seems there is a lot of personally attacking me on this site.

    Reta, maybe for a change try saying something nice about people and others will stop reminding you how pathetic you are? See… once you point a finger at someone you are exposing yourself to SAME criticism. What’s exceptionally annoying about you is the fact that apparently you are a woman and you trash other women. Felling better after putting others down? Look at your own comments, they are the best mirror of who you truly are.

    Meg, you’re being very selective. Read the above comments from WOMEN. Let alone men. Now go read the posting on Catherine Zeta Jones. I am NOT a woman basher or hater. But I DO have the right, as does everyone else who comes to this site to say if I notice this woman looks like a transsexual with huge giant feet ,which OTHER people see as well. Jesus fucking Christ, you and Patrick go find someone else to ride for a while. I didn’t realise this was the “Say something nice” column. You want to jump all over MY ass but let a freak like strom get away with all his racist shit? Nice going!

    Both Manuela and Eric have been married to spouses who were more famous than the two of them. After being divorced, maybe these two taken the time to evaluate their lives and saw a quality in each other that none of us Need to understand. Eric has his persona and Manuela have hers,and this could possibly be an attraction and appreciation for each other that may last longer than both of their previous marriages combined.Evidently Eric thought enough of her to want to marry her, and since they are “rumored” to be engaged,there is hope for a future together for this young couple and his daughter India!

    I don’t trust her as far as I can through her. I’d watch out if I were Eric. She just seems…shifty to me. I was disappointed with Eric, but he’s an extremely talented man. I’m ALWAYS going to be a Prince fan, and I know he’s not perfect, but her…something about her sends my sixth sense tingling.

    Be careful Eric.

Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
