    celebrities are human like us, they have ups and down! why don't the press leave them alone! the press can even cause divorce!

    They have kept their lives under wraps for many years and I hope they don't start to let it unravel in the media now. They have to remember that people have phones nowadays and nothing is secretive anymore. I hope he is not having an affair but if he is I hope they can work it out as I'm sure it is not his first time.

    Pauletta, stick by your man. Unless you seen him cheating with your own eyes, disregard any and everything that is being said.

    it would TRULY bum me out if these rumors were true; I have always respected and held Denzel more than a cut above other men, especially entertainers. it would bum me out even more if he were cheating with a White woman; I always thought he was respectful of his Black heritage and would not 'mix and match.'

  5. Marilyn Williams

    being in love with your husband, and not being respected, makes a woman lose track of her worth. Love should NOT drag you down – or let you be treated in any way less than deserved.

    @Marylyn Williams, thank you! It's so demeaning and humiliating for women to stand by men who think so little of them, they cheat on them and disrespect and dishonor them and their marriage vows. I have no use for any man or woman who cheats.

    30years? Come on the Washington's appear to be too wise not to think that, like everything in their environment has had a change of some kind. Why wouldn't how they see and relate to one another? It's got to be a "bi_scuit" managing a life with style in a fishbowl.

    They are also Christian and that makes me doubt it even more. May God protect their marriage and good words from Pauletta. At the end of the day, he knows where HOME is and that is with her.

  11. Amparo Yabar

    She does….that's why she knows what she offers her husband and stands strong…Satan will always try to fight her strength but our Lord is stronger than anything and anyone… she has the right weapon in her heart, GOD.

  12. Tonya Lovinglife Webb

    If Sanaa and Denzel are in love they should be together. This has obviously been going on for many years now. She knows and it's time to move on Pauletta to be with somebody to respects you because this can't be making you happy! Life does go on plus he's going to have to pay anyway which is one of his biggest reason (PERHAPS) as to why he hasn't divorced yet! You both need to Love yourselves enough to walk away with some self respect & dignity bcuz the rumors are only going to get worse!
