Who knew Rudy would grow up to be so hot? Keisha Knight Pulliam does a beautiful spread for Rollling Out Magazine. I hope to see her in more acting roles because she is just one talented sister, who we need to see more of.

During the interview with Rolling Out, Keisha Knight Pulliam talks about there being a “lack” of black men for black women to date. Check out her take on the issue:

I speak to a lot of women about shows and articles that suggest there are not enough available black men for black women. Do you think that idea is being perpetuated by the media, or is there really a lack of good black men?

I don’t know if there is a “lack” of good black men. But when you haven’t taken the time to get to know yourself, be OK with you, and articulate what it is you want in a relationship, then you can’t possibly find that person for you because you don’t even know what you’re looking for. Mostly, I think that if two people don’t work out, they just aren’t the right match, and there isn’t anything wrong with that. There is someone for everyone. But if you don’t have your stuff together, it’s not going to work. You have to really judge people [based] on what’s on the inside versus the superficial.

What are three things that you think every woman can do to keep a relationship strong?

Be who you are. The biggest mistake women make is trying to be who the other person wants them to be. And if that’s the case, that’s not the person for you. You can never love another person more than you love yourself. I also think people take stuff way too seriously. I’d rather laugh — not fuss and fight. You can articulate your point without arguing. When you’re arguing constantly, you just need to say, “You’re real cool, but you’re not
for me.

What can men do to help keep relationships strong?

[Laughing] Stop hoeing. Some men have a problem with being satisfied with what they have. Men have a tendency of always having a feeling that they’re missing something over there. And that’s not always the case.
