Despite the recent controversy surrounding her relationship with fiance Dwyane Wade, actress Gabriel Union is in-love and there’s nothing anyone can do about it.
The Being Mary Jane actress chatted with Glamour about love and relationships. She even has some tips for the ladies out there come Valentine’s Day.
DO forget your “type.”
“It worked for me. When I met Dwyane, his ‘résumé’ looked like crap: athlete, going through a divorce, nine years younger than me. None of that screamed, ‘Let’s have a lasting relationship.’ Then, after I had a heart-crushing breaking with yet another immature jerk, I thought, it can’t be any worse if I date a fetus. Let’s just see what happens. Turned out he’d been on his own since he was 15. He had wisdom that comes with facing an insane amount of adversity. He’s sweet, funny, honest about his shortcomings. When I put my preconceived notions to the side, I found someone cool.”
DON’T put up with a friend-versus-boyfriend tug-of-war.
“Some friends act possessive and say, ‘You’re not spending enough time with me.’ Huh? Remember when we made our vision boards and the dude was in the middle? You’re sup- posed to be happy for me. Thankfully, my girls are like, ‘High-five!’ And D likes to be around them too. If there’s weirdness, either something’s wrong with the friends—or the boy. Investigate. And sift accordingly.”
DO show him your feelings. Daily.
“Dwyane generally gets up before I do to go to the gym, and he’s never left without kissing me and telling me he loves me. As for me, I am complimentary to the point where I am almost a little Chester the Molester-y. I think he’s so delicious. Watching him get out of the shower never gets old. Never. It’s not like he ever wonders what I’m thinking, but usually he’s thinking, She needs a cold shower!”
DON’T write off an ex (or get back together) without really thinking it through.
“When you’re debating whether to go backward or forward, you have to look at the original issue. [When Dwyane and I broke up briefly in 2013], it was because of distance and scheduling. I finished filming the show, then I flew to Vegas right away to start shooting Think Like a Man Too. I couldn’t take time off, and I missed some quality togetherness we desperately needed. Over the summer, I reassessed priorities. I’d always wanted an awesome career with back-to-back projects, but I realized I wasn’t willing to sacrifice my relationship for it. Moving forward, I decided my work schedule has to make sense for our family. Bottom line: If an issue’s a deal breaker, it’s a deal breaker. If your relationship isn’t something you’re willing to give up and you can compromise, do so.”

Selena Gomez covers the December issue of TEEN VOGUE.
Gomezhas been in the entertainment business for well over 10-years. And even though she’s been singing and acting on our television screens for more than a decade, Gomez says she is just getting started.
Check out some highlights from her Teen Vogue interview below!
On finding love:
“You fall in love and it completely consumes you. So a part of you is broken when that’s gone. And part of you wants to have that rebellious feeling where you’re just like, forget it- I can do anything I want. I’ve tried it, and I’ve never been that girl. I’m always going to be the girl you want to take home to your parents, not for the night.”
On Taylor Swift:
“The difference between Taylor and me is she was sixteen with the confidence of a 25-year-old. Actually I should say 80-year-old because she’s such an old soul. I was not that way. I was very sheltered until about eighteen or nineteen. I still live at home, and I’m 21! She does inspire me like crazy, but I wouldn’t change my path because it allowed me to figure out all that stuff and do it on my own.”
On her love for junk food:
“I eat junk. I’m from the South, so I love Mexican food, greasy pasta, and fried things. I do try, every now and then, to put something in my body that will be good, but, honestly, I’ve never liked working out. I need to be active in some way, though – that’s why I kind of secretly do it for my show. We have thirteen choreographed pieces, and it’s a 90-minute set. I consider that my workout!”
Jennifer Love Hewitt‘s steamy show, The Client List has been cancelled.

According to Deadline, Hewitt wanted real-life fiance and co-star, Brian Hallisay to play her character’s love interest in season three. But the head honchos over at the network said the idea didn’t make sense.
The Client List premiered on Lifetime back in April 2012.

Rihanna sports a short curly ‘do for the November cover of Glamour!
RihRih’s party days are over! The songstress revealed to Glamour that she’s opting to live a more mellow lifestyle. She also dishes on her perceived public image and her career.
On her perceived public image:
“It doesn’t p*** me off because they don’t know me so well, so it’s easy for them to draw conclusions and it’s their right to. How can they know anything different? But I tried to be as honest with myself as possible. Be realistic with who I am and what I love to do and what makes me happy.”
On her new lifestyle:
“Recently, I’ve become like a square. I hate partying. I’ve been so bored with it. Maybe it’s because its the same music every night. I don’t know y’all feel me? I don’t know, maybe we need some more DJ’s or something.
On her career:
“You work hard and you play hard. I’ve definitely been working a lot in the last 8 years, it’s been a lot of hard work, but I love it. I love doing what I do. I have a lot to celebrate, so you will catch me celebrating every once in a while because I work hard. I love what I do and I put my focus into that. That’s my priority. Being number 1 never gets old. It actually puts a lot of pressure on you. It’s a challenge in itself. It keeps me busy but I love it. I love to challenge myself.”
