#Ad It’s been so rewarding to have served as a voice of inspiration to these incredible women in partnership with @gillettevenus so they can elevate their voices in the industry. Going through this process has inspired me–we need to see more work from female perspectives. A few words of advice to those who are just starting: Make an effort to know a bit about every department that goes into production–it’ll give you greater respect for all the pieces that go into bringing a story to life. Stay curious, and never be afraid to ask questions. If someone rolls their eyes at you for wanting to know something, that’s their problem, not yours. #hershotxvenus

Relationship, Marriage, and Divorce
According to various sources, Alexander and King met in 1994 and started a relationship, dating for three years before deciding to marry. They had a son together and things seemed to be going well until 2006, when it was announced that King was divorcing from her husband. Reports later started surfacing that the he had an extramarital affair, and was actually caught in the act with the woman by Regina. While the details about who the person he was seeing was not publicly, many sources state that it had been going on for some time. After her divorce, Regina took custody of their son, and raised him as a single mom. Prior to marrying Ian, it was known that she had a relationship with actor Curtis Baldwin, but details about their relationship have also been scarce.
After the divorce Ian moved away from the spotlight, and there are no details about his current endeavors, including about his current relationship, if there is one. He has remained in contact with his ex-wife since they have a son together. Regina on the other hand has moved on, and started dating others. In 2007, it was reported that she was dating actor Nicholas Gonzales who is five years younger than her. However the relationship, was short lived. She also became romantically involved with professional basketball player Quentin Richardson, but things did not work out.
In 2013, she began a long-term relationship with actor Malcolm-Jamal Warner, best known for his work in series such as “The Cosby Show” and “The Resident”. They stayed together for two years, but things also eventually ended. Despite that, the two remain in good standing, and Malcolm congratulated her on her recent Emmy win. Many talk shows have interviewed her about her relationship status, and she has said that she would not mind dating again, but the qualities she is looking for have become stricter. He has to understand that she puts a lot of time into her work and her child. She is also more open to date men who are as financially successful as her, and not just dating her for the money.
