On the premiere night of VH1 newest reality series Atlanta Exes, cast member Torrei Hart found out with the rest of us via social media, that the same ex-husband she was airing out her grievances about on the show — was now engaged.
Yup, in same time VH1 aired it’s second episode of Atlanta Exes featuring Hart, Tameka Raymond, Monyetta Shaw, Sheree Buchanan, and Christina Johnson, ex-husband Kevin Hart posted a photo on his Instagram with his current girlfriend Eniko Parrish showing off her new engagement ring, with the caption, “She said YEEEEESSSSS…… #Happy #MyRib #iF**kingLoveHer.”
The photo was then reposted by many of Kevin’s celebrity friends Dwyane Wade, La La Anthony, Kelly Rowland, and Lebron James , all congratulating Hart and his new fiancé. While many couldn’t believe the coincidental timing, we spoke to the Torrei who has grown to be much more resilient, and says she wasn’t surprised at all.
What was your immediate reaction to hearing the news of your ex-husband’s engagement?
I wasn’t shocked at all. The thing about me is I come from a line of strong women. I’m a very spiritual woman, I’m very in tune with God and the universe. I wasn’t shocked, I was prepared for this for a very long time.
Prepared, like did Kevin give you a heads up before he posted?
No. He wouldn’t do that. No, I didn’t get a heads up.
The episodes that aired last night were filmed a while ago, how are you feeling now after the premiere and the announcement?
I don’t care that he moved on, that’s not the problem. The thing is when he first moved on, it was during the marriage. It’ all about how things were done. That was the problem – there should be more respect your children’s mother. He could of waited before my kids were all around her that fast, especially when she was a part of the marriage when we were still married. And I know people like to say I’m still talking about it, but no, now I’m on show called Atlanta Exes – I have to talk about it. (laughs) First time on the show I have to talk about who I am, who I was with, and what happened – that’s the show. But that’s when it FIRST happened. Right now it is what is, and I accepted the situation for what it is.
So would you say you’re unbothered?
It is and will always be about respect, and how he did things, but I don’t want to beat a dead horse. I knew this was going to happen anyway, so it wasn’t a shock. We can all move on.
