TV FAB: Jackée & Ex Husband Elgin Charles Dish On Co-Parenting & Getting Your Weave Right On "The Talk"

Elgin Charles and his ex-wife, Emmy award-winning actress Jackée, dished with the ladies of "The Talk" yesterday about their modern family, their former marriage and of course...weavalicious do's and don'ts.  Watch a "Beverly Hills Fabulous" weave demo after the jump...

 

 

Elgin Charles, the star of VH1's upcoming  "Beverly Hills Fabulous" reality show, stopped by CBS chat fest "The Talk" yesterday to promote the new show and give the ladies a lesson in weave-ology.  But first, he sat on the couch with ex-wife, actress Jackée, and the two flamboyant personalities talked about their life together.

Elgin revealed that he and Jackee were married for seven years but have since divorced, while remaining great friends.  In fact, they currently live together and co-parent their 17-year-old son.  Yes, our eyebrows were raised too.

One of the hosts asked the twosome why they got a divorce.  While I extra confident I knew the answer, both answered that Jackée didn't want to be married.  I mean, I can think of a few other possibilities as to why this marriage didn't work.  But I digress.

The duo then gave the ladies a brief history of the "weave" and Jackée revealed that weaves have been around for many years but the secret was kept from black women in the beginning.  She first learned about them from Loni Anderson and Suzanne Somers.

Jackée told the panel she is serious about her weaves and would snatch hair from a small pony if she had too.  Hilarity.

 

Watch Jackee and Elgin talk about meeting and dating:

 

And watch Elgin show off his famous "weaving" skills:

 

This show of his is going to be something else....

 

The Randomness:

1.  A man getting a haircut engages in a knife-fight in the middle of the trim and flees the scene with his hair half cut off.  Story

Although he is clearly

Although he is clearly gay...we don't know how he was 17yrs ago. Was he as flamboyant as he is now? Was he in denial and then realized that it's better to accept himself as he is? We don't know what went/goes on in these people's lives.

They probably was Cat

They probably was Cat fighting all dayum day! LOL!! yeah I said it and spelled it "dayum"... What probably happened is Jackee being the "Strong Black Woman" as she say she is thought she could change him and come to find out she couldn't. LOL!! There's no changing ole dude. He is clearly gay and she had to have known. I have nothing against gays at all, I'm just shocked she had to go there.

This is kind of embarrassing

This is kind of embarrassing to me. All black women don't wear weave ALL the time. Some of us actually take care of our hair and let it grow and wear our own hair out. I hate when I walk down the street and people think I have weave in my hair just because its long, thick, and pretty. Or they think I'm mixed with something when I am clearly a very brown skin black woman, It's because of ignorant stuff like this. We need to do better. And I'm not saying we should all have long hair because I've had short hair and shoulder length hair. It's just the fact that black women should have HEALTHY hair instead of wearing weave.

yes i agree i have natural

yes i agree i have natural long hair AND get asked all the time if its weave i have to let them pull it to see its ALLLLLL MINE grown by me and healthy
constance's picture

Yes, you are right about one

Yes, you are right about one thing, black women do not wear weave all the time. In fact, we wear many types of hair styles and each of us have a specific hair texture, which makes us very unique. Unique, but still human where as we still like to explore different styles and express our creativity or sexiness through the means of makeup and hair... like many women. I don't find this to be embarrassing at all. On the other hand, you blame black women who wear extensions for how people perceive you, when it is their responsibility to educate their self. Stop giving people the excuse to be ignorant because of something so small as hair extensions. You embarrass yourself for putting so much power to something like hair.

HIS FRUITY, PATOOTY ASS

HIS FRUITY, PATOOTY ASS MARRIED HER..............USED HER FOR HER 'STAR CONNECTIONS'.....BECAUSE REMEMBER BACK IN THE DAY, JACKEE WAS THE SHIT, SHE LOOKED GOOD AND WAS STARRING IN A TOP SHOW. OLE BOY USED HER FOR HER CONNECTIONS & MONEY TO LAUNCH HIS FIRST SALON, BUT HER NASTY ASS KNEW EXACTLY WHAT SHE WAS MARRYING. JACKEE HAS A VERY, VERY BAD SEXUAL REPUTATION. SHE WAS DATING A TEMPTATION YEARS AGO AND SCARED HIS ASS OFF. SHE TAKES FREAK-ISM TO A WHOLE NUTHA LEVEL.
