No More Drama on Black Bridal Bliss

Yesterday I received an eye-opening email from a longtime Triple B reader who was upset about Monday’s Marriage Matters post on Evelyn and Chad “Ocho Cinco” Johnson. Read it below:
I love your blog so much so that it’s my homepage. But when I saw the post featuring the Chad O/Evelyn L martial drama, I had to change it.

I love your site for the positive images of black couples and the well-written content.

Hearing about those two is easily accessible on countless other sites. Seeing it on yours…delivered in the same way was a disappointment.

Hopefully, this isn’t the beginning of a trend.

Warmly,
M.G.

Whoa, right? This note means many things to me (too many to discuss now) but three main takeaways were immediate: 1) I have to continue to trust my gut — because I honestly didn’t when I wrote the Ev/Chad post. 2) Even though you guys don’t comment nearly as much as I would like, you’re paying close attention. 3) I will be forever grateful for the platform that is BlackBridalBliss.com.

As the founder and editor of BlackBridalBliss.com, I assure you all that Triple B will remain true to Triple B. There is no desire for the site to become the “norm” so rest assured that the type of well-written, balanced and uplifting content celebrating Black women and their road to bridal bliss that launched this site will remain. My sincere apologies for getting off-track. Every now and again we all need reminders of what is most important and why, and sometimes it takes frank words that initially “sting” to remind us of that. I have already responded to M.G. directly with a version of this but I wanted to publicly do the same. Now I’m just hoping she switches her homepage back!

Continue to spread the word about Triple B and know the best is yet to come!

      This post was greatly appreciated! Looking forward to reading more touching love stories + viewing the amazing photos.

    2. Hey Bridgette! I too am a daily reader of Black Bridal Bliss and seeing the Chad Johnson/Evelyn Lozado fiasco made me upset. Those two *sigh* I just can’t. Their whole “relationship” was/is like a slap in the face to those of us whom have been in abusive relationships before, me being one of those people that have. I frequent BBB to see and hear stories of beautiful relationships that blossom into life long marriage. Though I am not married YET I come here for encouragement and ideas and to learn more about what it takes to make a marriage work beyond 5 or 10 years. I plan on being in my future marriage, Lord willing, for the very long haul. BBB is a beautiful site and I am glad that you’ve decided to keep the drama at bay.

    3. Although I wasn’t upset by the post, I was disappointed. Kudos to you Bridgette for listening and keeping BBB drama-free :)

    4. Lovely! Black love doesn’t get enough coverage. Thank you for being the go-to coverage on that topic!

    5. Yes thank you. No drama. I get very happy and excited when I see couples in a positive way. So more of the loving. Thank You I love BBB and Black and Married with kids website. Its a breath of fresh air.

    6. I love seeing the positive representation of black couples in a way that it is not represented online! Thank you for what you do and keep up the good work! http://www.corettaselegantevents.blogspot.com

    7. Hey B, I really enjoy visiting your site and end up feeling like I’m a guest at some really amazing wedding of some really beautiful folx of color who are sincerely in love. The Chad and Evelyn feature actually sealed the deal for lessons learned. (1) Marry someone that you know! (2) Marry someone that is your best friend. That was my take away! I’m an avid reader of the blog and will continue to enjoy the features of other folx wedded bliss. On a personal note, that good ole gut keeps us honest. I can carry that lesson into all facets of life..
