KARRINE ON HER MARRIAGE TO DARIUS McCRARY: 'Darius is my husband. Darius and I are married. It's confusing, I know. But when a man walks around with a ring on his wedding finger and tells everyone on the set of his new film that this is his wife, not too many people are going to be able to keep their mouth shut about that.
JAMIE: Karrine, did you all have a ceremony?
JAMIE: Why wasn't I invited?
KARRINE: Because Darius and I, we're not going to do things traditionally...
JAMIE: You're not going to let the world know?
ME: What in the hell.....?
We have made a commitment to one another. We call ourselves husband and wife, he wears my ring and I wear his. Darius and I don't want to have a paper wedding at this point in our lives, but we wanted to make a commitment to each other and to our families and let people know that we are together and we consider ourselves husband and wife because that's the way he introduces me to everyone. We're very much together. I don't know. What did yall hear? Because Darius was gone for five days because we were figuring out what we were doing. No one understands my relationship with Darius. Even though people in his life, my life also, they can't understand it, we're still made for one another and love each other.
KARRINE ON DARIUS' DECISION TO MOVE IN WITH HER: He moved in in July. He had told me he was with Shakiri (Hightower) until July...but all of a sudden something just clicked and he was like, 'I don't need to be there. I want to be with you. What am I doing over there? I belong here.' So that was a decision he made after a day of being at my house with me. He came and he moved in. Only because my son's school is here, we decided that we would stay in my house until we buy a bigger house together. So he liquidated all his stuff and his properties or whatever. Everything was fine. He's been living here since July.
KARRINE ON DARIUS FIVE DAY LONG EXCURSION AWAY FROM HER: Well he was gone for five days. Yes, Darius left me for five days to give me time to look at the scenario. And within those five days, because I love him so much, I miss him, I couldn't even get out of bed for five days. But talking to him in those five days and pointing out these things to me, the way he described me to myself is the way I describe my mother to some people. That's when it hit me, like, I am turning into my mother, and my mother's 47 and by herself. Three kids by three different men. Nobody ever stayed, nobody ever married her, nobody ever even moved in. I never had a man around me. My son never had a man around him that way. And so here was Darius who loves me uncontrollably, who loves my son, and who will say, 'I love your son,' which is something (my son's) own father has never said to him. My son never heard that from a man. So my son and I had to learn and adapt to having a real man at home loving us. So he gave me that time. I know he was angry. I'm a bit of a bitch to he honest; I'm am overbearing bitch, which is a curse.
So you must have spoken to him in those five days and then he came back home. And we needed that time because I was gone for a while and he was in transition. He's been home. So you spoke to him in a five-day window. He's home and we're more committed now more than ever. There's some things we had to get taken care of because I had a habit of--because I've been alone for so long, I've been running my life by myself for so long, it's difficult to know how to let a man come in and be the husband and lead a little.
KARRINE ON HOW DARIUS' FAMILY FEELS ABOUT HER: His mom loves my son. His mom loves me. It's the whole family here. Sister and brother and they're like, 'oh, we love Karrine!' There's a whole unity here and its not just me and this guy like it was me and Bill (Maher).
KARRINE ON DARIUS LEAVING HER IN THE DARK ABOUT HIS S2S INTERVIEW: This is my first time hearing that Darius spoke to you. I think Darius was speaking to you from a place of hurt and saying things that other people wanted him to say. Because he was only gone five days. He went and talked to you then came home and didn't tell me a thing. I can't believe he didn't tell me this! But it's okay, because my Wayne article comes out in VIBE in a couple of weeks. We're going to confuse everyone.
