Bridal Magazine Jinx Claims Another Victim


Both Kelly Rowland and Ciara were featured on the cover of bridal magazines just as news broke that their respective weddings were off [click here and here if you missed that]. 

R&B singer and former 106 and Park VJ Keshia Chante suffers the same tragic fate...


Although it is an honor to grace the cover of Today’s Bride, it is also bittersweet because I decided to not get married. It hasn't been easy. It's a hurtful, gut wrenching experience. I gave it a long hard look and had to make the most painful decision of my life but I know in my heart, it was the right one. I was 21 years old when I began dating Ray. We were together for 7 years. I spent the majority of my 20's with my first real boyfriend & the reality is, what you choose to accept at 21, is not necessarily the same for 28, or forever. I was unhappy for quite some time but I believed loyalty & patience took precedence over my own contentment. Over the years, I dedicated & sacrificed a lot to support his career & well-being only to realize I lost myself, compromising my own hopes & dreams in the process. The relationship became unhealthy. Countless chances were given yet not enough changed. Ultimately, you can't help someone who doesn't want to help themselves. A few months before the wedding, my gut reaction was to finally accept that it just didn't feel right. I was no longer willing to accept less than what I deserved. So many of us get caught up in the pressure & expectations to get married. We should follow our hearts & make decisions for ourselves - not to appease social norms, or try to appear "perfect" for others. Weddings are beautiful but they should be about the celebration of a beautiful life & union! Despite all of this, Ray & I will always love each other. I respect him & our time together immensely, simply it is time to move on, and that’s ok. We only have one shot to live our best life and it's time I live my life for me. xx

Poor thing, that sucks. Although she shouldn't have typed out the long explanation because it makes her look worse.

The man dogged her for 7 years yet she still accepted a ring and posed like a happy soon to be bride. I hope she learned her lesson for the next man.

I googled dude. Thought he was a white boy being that he's an NHL goalie. Lo and behold he's a brotha!
I can tell by his photos he's a straight up dawg.
She's a smart girl to move on if she knew he wasn't treating her right.

I'm glad she told her story because it's good advice, and you never know who she may influence. Who she is, is irrelevant.

She posed on the cover out of thirst and desperation.

He's probably dogging her for a White girl.

Good for her! It is never too late to find love. It is best to end it when you know it just is not right in the long term. She will be better for the next guy because of her experience. Because of that, she will find exactly what she is looking for.
