Red Table Talk: Sandra Bullock Speaks On Adopting Black Kids “I Have The Same Feelings As A Woman With Brown Skin”

It’s hard to believe anyone would take issue with Sandra Bullock, but the actress unpacks a lot of the criticisms she’s faced over her interracial adoption on the latest episode of “Red Table Talk.”

Facebook Watch premiered the latest “Red Table Talk” episode featuring Oscar Winner Sandra Bullock Wednesday, Dec. 1 at noon EST. In the episode, Bullock opened up about her motherhood journey and the moments that have shaped her. The usually private superstar talked about adoption, the traumas of the foster care system, co-parenting, the life-changing experiences that led her to seek a unique style of therapy, and what parenting two Black children has taught her.

Speaking candidly with Jada, Willow and Gam, Bullock opened up about how she was in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, where her mother is buried, both times when she learned about her babies.

“It makes me really emotional but … I feel beyond a shadow of a doubt that my mother brought me these children,” Sandra said.

Bullock, who is 57, also said she always knew she would become a mother — just not at a young age.

“I don’t know why that was the only route but I’m so glad the universe had me wait. Had me wait even though I was anxious and I was eager — and it went nope, you’re not going to do it the way you think you’re going to do it.”

She revealed that until the point that Louis came into her life, acting had been her everything.

“That was my joy; I was on a wheel,” she says. “But it’s hard when society is breathing down your neck going, you are supposed to do it this way. When Louis came into my life, he was put in my arms at 10 days. I just knew and I said this is my path.”

If you have been a longtime reader of BOSSIP, you likely will recall how we shared regular updates on Bullock’s motherhood experience after she adopted her son Louis in 2010 when he was just 3½ months old. Since then, she’s also become mom to daughter Laila, 8, whom she welcomed via the foster care system before officially adopting her in 2015.

Bullock also addressed criticism of her interracial adoption, admitting that things would be easier if she and her children shared the same skin color.

“To say that I wish our skins matched, sometimes I do. Because then it would be easier on how people approach us,” Bullock explained. “And I have the same feelings as a woman with brown skin being her babies or a white woman with white babies.”

She went on to muse that it would only take stepping inside her household to see how her experience is nearly identical to any other parent’s, regardless of race. She spoke about constantly trying to do things right and make sure the kids were on time and even mentioned setting aside time to fix her daughter’s edges.

In addition to talking about her motherhood journey, Bullock also spoke about the terrifying experience of having an intruder break into her home while she was there. Fortunately her son was not in her home that night, but ultimately the trespasser took his own life after being confronted by SWAT officers.

Crazy right?

Tune in for all new episodes of “Red Table Talk” on Wednesdays at 9am PT / 12pm ET on Facebook Watch. Sandra Bullock’s latest movie ‘The Unforgivable’ is out on Netflix Dec. 10.

Ashley Benson Rocks Daisy Dukes & Orange Crop Top Amid Rumors She’s Back With G-Eazy — Photos

Published

Ashley Benson

The ‘Pretty Little Liars’ alum showed off her style in a revealing ensemble as she was spotted solo amid rumors she reunited with her rapper ex.

Ashley Benson is certainly giving a reason for G-Eazy to get back together with her, if they haven’t reconciled already! The Pretty Little Liars alum, 32, looked simply gorgeous as she stepped out to run some errands in Los Angeles on Friday (January 21). Rocking a tiny orange crop top and skimpy daisy dukes, the actress — who split with the rapper back in February of 2021 — showed off her flawless figure for the daytime outing. She paired the casual look with a black leather motorcycle jacket, black sneakers, sunglasses and an oversized purple bag. Allowing her natural beauty to shine, she went virtually makeup free and swept her trademark sandy blonde locks up in a messy bun.

The outing comes after Ashley was spotted with G-Easy over a week ago in West Hollywood. The pair looked like they were getting quite cozy during the nighttime excursion. Ashley donned a stylish black overcoat with a crisscross patterned shirt underneath for the date, while G-Easy kept it cool in a grey hoodie and brown leather jacket.

The sighting comes after the pair were seen grabbing some lunch in the tony neighborhood of Los Feliz in Los Angeles the day after Christmas, according to reports. The news may come as no surprise to fans, as Ashley was also snapped in April getting into the “Lights and Camera” hitmaker’s black Ferrari in Pasadena, California, per the Daily Mail. The former couple can’t seem to keep it in the “former” category with all these public outings!

Back in February of 2021, Ashley and G-Easy reportedly called it off after being hot and heavy for almost 9 months. Eagle-eyed followers noticed at the time that the pair, who first sparked romance rumors in May 2020, unfollowed each other on Instagram. Although there was speculation the breakup came out of nowhere, a source close to Ashley told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that there was a reasonable answer to why the pair called it quits.

“Ashley broke up with G-Eazy because their relationship got to a point where they were arguing more often than not, and the romance had just lost its spark,” the source explained. “They fell for each other quickly in the beginning.” The insider went on to say that Ashley’s friends thought their relationship was an “odd pairing” after her two-year relationship with girlfriend Cara Delevingne. It also came down to the couple having “different views of the future.” “Ashley knew that it would be very hard for him to settle down so she decided to separate,” the source added.

Tony Bennett’s Wife: Everything To Know About Susan Crow & His 2 Previous Marriages

Tony Bennett has been married to Susan Crow since 2007. Find out more about her and their relationship here.

Tony Bennett, 95, is known as one of the most legendary singers in pop and jazz and has led a very successful life in the music industry, but he’s also led a life of love over the years. The singer has been married three times, including his marriage to his current wife Susan Crow, 55, and has been in the spotlight during each of them. The marriages also resulted in four children, making Tony a doting father.

Find out more about Susan and her background with Tony as well as Tony’s two ex-wives below.

Tony and Susan were married in 2007 after starting up a relationship in the 1980s. She has worked as a school teacher and has admitted to being a big fan of her husband for a long time. Being 40 years younger than him, Tony revealed that he once took a photo with Susan’s parents, Marion and Dayl Crow, at a show in San Francisco when her mom was pregnant with her in 1966.

“As fate would have it, Marion was pregnant at the time with … Susan! It’s a photo we all laugh about knowing the incredible turn of events that followed,” he wrote in his memoir, Just Getting Started, which was released in 2016.

He also opened up about how she went to his concert when she was just nineteen and that’s what started their romance. “When she was nineteen she had tickets to see me perform at the Masonic Temple in San Francisco and she put in a request to say hello backstage after the show, probably not expecting a response,” he explained in the book. “The request was sent to me, and it tickled me that someone of her age was so devoted to my music. I not only agreed to say hello to her backstage, but asked her to be my date for the evening, and that’s how it really all began … foreshadowed by a backstage photo taken in 1966!”

In addition to being Tony’s wife, Susan has been his caregiver ever since he was diagnosed with having Alzheimer’s disease. He announced the news in Feb. 2021 and Susan talked about the challenge in an interview with AARP. “There’s a lot about him that I miss, because he’s not the old Tony anymore,” she said in the interview. “But when he sings, he’s the old Tony.”

Tony’s second wife was Sandra Grant. Sandra worked as an actress in the 1965 movie The Oscar, which he also starred in, and that’s reportedly how she met the talented star. They went on to strike up a romance and live together before eventually getting married in 1971. The former lovebirds welcomed two daughters during their love story, including Joanna in 1970 and Antonia in 1974 before separating in 1979. Their divorce wasn’t finalized until 2007.

Patricia Beech

Tony married his first wife, Patricia Beech, in 1952. The duo met after one of his shows when she was an art student, according to Glamour Path. They made headlines during their wedding when thousands of Tony’s female fans stood outside the wedding venue while “mourning” and wearing all black. The former husband and wife didn’t let that stop them from starting their life together, though, and they went on to welcome two sons, including D’Andrea in 1954 and Daegel in 1955. They ended up separating in 1965 and eventually divorced in 1971.

RHOC’s Shannon Beador Reveals Sad Update With Ex David, and Unwritten Rule of Housewives

RHOC's Shannon Beador on Relationship With Ex David, Her Apology to Terry Dubrow, and Unwritten Rule of Housewives, Plus Talks Noella Bergener's Divorce

Shannon Beador offered an update on her relationship with ex-husband David Beador while appearing on Watch What Happens Live on Wednesday night.

Nearly a decade after their marriage imploded on the heels of David’s sordid affair with another woman, the Real Housewives of Orange County cast member, who attempted to mend her marriage with her cheating spouse, shared where the two of them stand today.

“We still don’t have [a relationship],” Shannon confirmed on the January 19 episode of the WWHL: After Show. “I’ll get in trouble for this. But if he’s on the phone with my daughters and he hears my voice, he hangs up the phone. He will not return a text. It’s unbelievable.”

Although Shannon confirmed she and David aren’t on speaking terms, she noted that their divorce is “done” and that they’ve “both moved on with our lives,” she with boyfriend John Janssen and he with new wife Lesley Beador, who he welcomed a daughter with in 2021.

As for her apology to Dr. Terry Dubrow, Shannon was asked on the show if she truly felt it was necessary to say she was “sorry” to Heather Dubrow‘s husband for sharing news of Nicole James‘ lawsuit against him with Gina Kirschenheiter and Emily Simpson.

“It was my intent to do that long,” Shannon confirmed.

She then clarified that when she told Gina and Emily about the legal drama, she told them not to repeat what she said.

“When I did tell Emily and Gina, ‘If by some rare chance that this is true,’ [I said], ‘We’ll never mention it.’ Because there’s this unwritten rule you don’t go after kids or businesses,” she revealed.

Also on the WWHL: After Show, Shannon weighed in on the ongoing social media drama between Noella Bergener and her estranged husband, James Bergener.

“I think it’s a shame that her ex-husband went on social media because I feel that she did need to respond that way,” she shared. “You don’t want to fight your divorce in the public eye. But I’m telling you she’s a very strong girl that was blindsided and I can’t imagine what she’s going through on camera. I still have nothing but empathy for her because it’s just a really difficult thing to go through. She was blindsided. He left in the morning and he never came home.”

The Real Housewives of Orange County season 16 airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
