Rolonda Watts Disclosed What Her Ex AL B. Sure Surprisingly Did For Her
Let’s first confirm the long-standing rumor for those who didn’t know: YES, former daytime talk show host, Rolonda Watts, has now confirmed that her man was Al. B. Sure back in the day! Rolonda (61) is 9 years older than Al B. (52), but that didn’t stop her from getting her cougar on when they were both at the height of their careers.
During their relationship, Al B. was a front-runner of the New Jack Swing sound and had tweens, teens and 20-somethings all kissing his Right On Magazine posters taped to their bedroom walls, good night EVERY night; while Rolonda was on national TV discussing serious topics with her mostly middle aged, middle class audience of working women and stay-at-home moms, about issues ranging from drug addiction to gay rights.
So yeah, on the surface they did NOT match, which is probably why they kept things on the low. But if folks really paid attention to what the New Jack Swing cat was saying in his songs, it’s easy to see how Al B., then 20 years old, pulled an almost 30 year old Rolonda Watts…dude had an old soul and was spittin’ some SERIOUS grown folks game on wax. Just listen to songs he wrote, like “Ooh This Love” (1988), “Naturally Mine” (1988), “U&I” (1992) and any of the others.
Rolonda Tells What Al B Sure Did For Her
Anyways, Rolonda recently did an interview with AlwaysAList to promote her new romance novel, Destiny Lingers, but she couldn’t help revealing something she’ll never forget Al B. Sure did for her while they dated and it shocked the hell outta her.
Rolonda: “Al B. and I really dated and we still care deeply for each other—though we are not in love. My fondest memory was when Al B. asked a group of friends over dinner what each of our dream gifts would be. I said a sapphire blue and gold Rolex watch with diamonds marking the hours. Al B. later presented that very gift to me in a sound proof room in his studio next to a white baby grand piano. I almost fainted! I will never forget that moment as long as I live. He is a very special man to me.” -via AlwaysAList
Like we said, the brotha had game. I wonder if we’ll see these two hooking back up anytime soon.
It’ll be a shame to let that new couple name we just created for ’em go to waste- RoBSure has a nice ring to it. 😜
