“Lesson learned…”

Shamari DeVoe Speaks On Her Previously Open Marriage To Ronnie DeVoe

Shamari DeVoe is speaking out further on a revelation she made during the most recent episode of “Real Housewives Of Atlanta.”

As previously reported Shamari shockingly said that at one point her marriage to Ronnie DeVoe was open, but only with women. She admitted to bicuriously bedding two girls while she estimated that her husband slept with 10.

“The only thing he couldn’t have is me being with another man. As long as I was able to go about in my bicurious ways, then I was cool with that. I didn’t want to be with another man because I had my husband.  I ended up sleeping with two women during that time, he probably slept with about 10. I started the open relationship and I stopped the open relationship. I realized the grass wasn’t greener on the other side.”


Now Shamari’s revealed in her Bravo blog that their marriage is completely closed and she’s “learned her lesson” about opening it up in the first place.

According to her she and her hubby are “destiny partners.” She also added this; “If you’re thinking about trying open an open marriage, please don’t do it!”

“It’s not that I have any regrets, but more so, I take it as a lesson learned. I learned that we ARE destiny partners and that we will never allow anybody to come between our love bond again. We went through a lot of heartache and pain, but we stayed committed to working it out and were able to overcome our challenges and use our story as our testimony.

There may be couples in similar situations that don’t have the courage to share, so I’m willing to take on the burden by sharing my story. Some couples may not be completely honest in their relationship because of fear of being judged by their partner or even losing their partner altogether.

So if you’re thinking about trying an open marriage, please don’t do it!!! Figure out how to get back to what brought the two of you together and speak to each other’s love languages. I’m a strong advocate of communication and honesty in relationships and extremely passionate about families staying together.

Wow, sounds like Shamari’s never bringing anyone else into their bedroom again. Open marriages clearly work for some couples, but it sounds like it’s pretty difficult to balance.
