R. Kelly’s Wife Seeks to Put All of His Business in the Street

Drea Kelly is an ex-wife on a mission.  Drea is expected to make R. Kelly’s life a little more interesting by writing a tell-all book about the performer that is sure to reveal some of the more interesting aspects of his personal life.  R. Kelly was accused during his marriage of having numerous unethical encounters with underage girls and some are wondering if his wife is going to spill the beans.

Drea stars in season two of the VH1 reality show, “Hollywood Exes,” and spoke about her book openly.   She is the mother of three of Kelly’s kids, and plans to title the book, Life Under the Red Carpet: My Life As R. Kelly’s Wife.

Rather than the book being gossipy and simple, Drea says that she is framing the book as a self-help guide for women, perhaps so they can deal with men like R. Kelly without driving themselves insane

“It’s not juice and grease, it’s really a self-help book for women. It’s really teaching women about how to get back to the true essence of who you are. If all this should go away at the end of the day, who are you?”

Drea says that the two are not exactly happy with each other, but that she remains committed to remaining decent for the kids.

“We have to be. We are. This is the father of my children, and we have to compromise, and we have to make it work for them.”

Drea also talks about what she’s looking for in terms of dating.  She says that she wants a grown man, not a little boy.

“I’m trying to get this together, like ‘how does this dating thing really work?’ I don’t want the ‘journal brotha’. Don’t bring me a journal full of hopes, dreams, want, ‘ what I might do.’ I need you to have it together because I have a son, I’m not trying to raise a grown man.”
