My husband has made it no secret that he’s madly in love with actress Sanaa Lathan (on screen!), just like I’ve made no effort to hide my weekly panting over actor Shemar Moore when we’re watching new and repeat episodes of Criminal Minds. Think we sound crazy, right? We’ll maybe not. I look at this way, we could waste time and energy being jealous of some celebrity neither of us have ever met, or ever will, and pick an unnecessary fight whenever they come up. OR, we could admit that we’re both human and although we’ve chosen to love and want each other most, that doesn’t mean we’ve gone blind.
Besides, as a woman, I have enough daily insecurities to work through without wasting even a moment of my life comparing myself to a woman who has a professional trainer and a hair and makeup time. What would be the point? I can however grin and take comfort in the fact that maybe my husband sees a little something in Ms. Lathan that he loves about me. It’s not as unlikely as it sounds. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that she’s always been one of my favorite actresses anyway, and we both happen to share a birthday too. And if that’s not interesting enough, how about this little doosy of a fact: Shemar Moore was born almost 10 years to the day before my husband. (They’re both Tauruses!) I’m no astrologist but I sense a cosmic connection that’s bigger than us possibly going on there, don’t you? But I digress…
What I’m really getting at here is that in life we make choices. Gibran chose me and I chose him, and thinking someone else is attractive doesn’t make those choices null and void. If you ask me it solidifies them in a way. It’s nice to know that even though my husband occasionally find other women to be beautiful too, he chose this beauty to spend the rest of his life with and that’s a hell of a compliment if you ask me. Now, that being said, I wouldn’t go as far as to say Gibran loves the idea of me being glued to the television whenever Shemar is on it, but he’s certainly not going to lose any sleep!
Have you and your husband/wife shared your celebrity crushes? (Because let’s be honest, you know you have them!) Or would it be best if you just didn’t go there? Cast your votes, people. I’m dying to know!
