Before his debut as a coach in Lifetime’s “Married at First Sight” DeVon Franklin spilled some relationship advice as he walked the red carpet after revealing some of the most important lessons he’s learned from the actress since their divorce Meagan Good.
Speaking to press on the red carpet at the 2022 BET Awards, Franklin admitted he had to hold himself back from assigning blame after finalizing his divorce from the “Harlem” star. The pastor filed for separation after nine years of marriage. In their joint statement, the couple said: “No one is to blame; We believe this is the next best chapter in the evolution of our love.”
Speaking to the New York Post, the best-selling author told reporters, “In everything I’ve been through, I’ve found this [It’s important to] Resist the temptation to blame, take responsibility.” The producer added, “Sometimes in relationships it’s very easy to say, ‘Oh, that person is the problem.’ No, look in the mirror and say, ‘What is my role in this and what can I do to change myself?’
Last month, given their recent split, the pastor defended his decision to take part in the 15th season of reality television series Lifetime. In a lengthy post, Franklin addressed the matter, explaining that he agreed to appear on the show before his divorce.
He continued, “I wanted to tell them ‘no’ because I was ashamed, and this voice in my head said, ‘You’re a failure; How can you help someone save their marriage when yours didn’t work out?’ That voice in my head also made me think about what “people” would say? Would ‘people’ agree or disagree?”
However, Franklin shared that after sitting with the idea for a while, he realized that he couldn’t let other people’s opinions stop him from taking on the opportunity to help others.
The producer told the Post that counseling others taught him a lot about how to approach his next romantic relationship effectively, saying, “I’ve learned that I have a lot to offer and that I’m passionate about love and relationships and that also wants to see how people find their persona.”
