[Vivica in this months "Upscale Magazine"]
"I'm still learning from that experience," She says with a quick chuckle. "I just trusted too soon. I do that and it's sad because I'm generous and giving by nature. I thought I could deal with someone who I thought was on the same level, but Vivica will always have love for 50. I think there's a couple of people who you really truly love and people, for some reason, thought I was only with him because he could do something for me. No, I loved him and I'll always love him. The saddest part is that I really liked him as a person because he's old fashioned. He's like a very quiet storm." She loved him so much that she wasn't even really hurt by all those darts and arrows he slung at her in the press following thier breakup about how she used him. "He didn't mean it," she said slowly. "He likes to shock peole. Deep down in his heart, it was just him recapturing his manhood"

It doesn't affect me what people say. I 'm in the entertainment business and people like to see you look good. If there are steps I have to take to look good, I'm going to do it. I don't hold it against anyone else, but if people want to hold it against me an create their own stories, so be it. If they were in my shoes and they had to do what they had to do to look good, then they would understand my journey. When I look in the mirror I still see Vivica and that's all that matters to me. If I still look the same that I did 20 years ago then something must be working"
50 puts it down, point blank, aint' no chick gonna let a man humiliate her and still talk about the love she has for him unless she's Shar Jackson.
