Cherise Nicole Derek Luke Boris Kodjoe Baggage Claim

Two of the sexy men from the upcoming film, Baggage Claim, joined me for a very candid and entertaining interview!  Derek Luke portrays ‘The Guy Next Door,’ and Boris Kodjoe portrays ‘The Jerk.’ Let’s just say the men definitely were cast in the right parts because when we began our discussion on women gaining weight in a relationship…their opinions couldn’t be any more different!  Boris Kodjoe quickly said that getting fat once you are already in a relationship is absolutely unacceptable!  While, Derek Luke believes a relationship should be built on more than just looks and it shouldn’t matter.  Although this debate was hilarious, it poses a real question.  Would you stick around if your significant other gained weight?  Do you feel you both are required to ‘Keep it Sexy?’  Have you ever gained ‘love weight’ in a new relationship?  Talk to me people!!

Derek Luke:

“That’s part of my character. Part of my character is about commitment.  You know what I’m saying?  So, even if you doing the humpty dumpty, it’s commitment, cause you know what? The dude could go humpty dumpty! He could go from six pack to one pack, you know what I’m saying? ”

“That’s why marriages are failing in America and across the world, because there’s no commitment.  Because commitment is the key to success.  You can go up and down.  It’s about where you land.  It’s about your commitment.  Cause sickness, weight, that’s in your confessions when you get married. “

Boris Kodjoe:

“O.K. Part of the deal is…you got to keep it sexy.  Got to keep it sexy.  Because it’s easy getting married, but it’s not as easy to stay married.  And part of that is, like I make my wife, my girlfriend.  She’s my girlfriend.  So, we got to keep it sexy….What if I gained 200 pounds? And then she’ll look at me like..really? And I couldn’t even blame her if she started looking around.  Because I took her off the market, so I have to deliver, what the market could possibly deliver for her.  So, I gotta take that place. Right? So, I got to fulfill those things that the market could’ve given her.  I’m the market now, so I got to keep it sexy.”

Hilarious!  But also very interesting!

Baggage Claim hits theaters on September 27th!!
