My Divorce Is Not The End Of Life And My God Has Given Me Cheer And Joy
Story by ADUNOLA OLADAPO/Nigerian Tribune
Click for Full Image Size Kate Henshaw has been a leading light, one of the veterans in Nollywood for a long time and she is still waxing strong. In this interview with ADUNOLA OLADAPO, she speaks on issues bordering on the movie industry, her personal life, among other issues. Excerpts

What inspired your new dreadlocks hairstyle?

Itís not dreadlocks, I keep explaining to people. These are natural twists. On my last birthday, I decided to make a lot of changes in my life. I decided to reclaim my hair because I really had lovely hair growing up, and the first time relaxer ever touched my hair was when I was in the university.

After years of using too much chemical on it, I decided to just make a complete turnaround. Now, my hair is healthy, itís long, itís lovely. And I would never let relaxer touch it again. I donít fix artificial nails again. Iím back to natural nails. I just put on some long-lasting polish. I fixed my nails for over 10 years but Iím tired of it now. I want to be healthy in my old age.

Your divorce came as a shock to a lot of people. Why did you take that decision?

Shock? Have you not heard that Seal and Heidi (Klum) have divorced? Havenít you seen people who have been married for 20 to 25 years and divorced? Iím not perfect; no one is. We all have our low moments. It doesnít mean Iím a failure. Everybody goes through bad patches in life. Life must go on, whether we like it or not. Itís always better to part under good circumstances than for someone to be in jail, or die, or to be hurling insults at each other. There is no need for that.

It seems you donít regret your divorce, because you always have this cheerful look?

Itís God. Looking back at my life, where I came from, I never even thought I would be an actress. I never even thought I would have an opportunity to meet people, to be a role mode. So, itís not for me to feel self-pity. Iím grateful to God every single day. I choose to be happy. I am a happy person. Someone encouraged me with these words yesterday: ĎEvery problem you have will resolve and dissolveí. So, my divorce is not the end of life and my God has given me cheer and joy. That explains why I am always happy and cheerful. No regrets.

Will you remarry?

I am not sure about remarrying but I will love again. Iím a lover, not a fighter. Iím only going to be very choosy. I donít know about marriage, but, maybe, love.

Youíve kept your daughter away from the limelight. Is this deliberate?

Yes. You want them to kidnap my daughter? When they see her picture, then they will know who she is. I remember somebody sent a card to me through her school and I was so surprised. They just dropped it on her desk and I was wondering how the person knew my daughter attends that school. Should she decide to step into the limelight later on, that would be her call, not mine. Iíve managed to keep her away and Iím sure Iíve done a good job. Now she is not even in the country and itís better she schools there.

KATE IS NOT A PRETENDER
NANCY | 3/26/2013 12:19:23 PM |
Kate like other divorced women knows when to say , "enough is enough" and to quit a failed marriage.
Unlike most married women in Africa and Asia who are so desperate that they are ready to continue to suffer and to pretend by swallowing every shyt heaped on them in their marriages ; just to bear "Mrs" and to remain in their pathetic and shameful FAILED marriages.

Those women who have chosen divorce are not mad or s****d and they are not pretenders who appear to the whole world to be "happily married" when they are not , at all.
A woman does not have to leave her marriage before she can be FREE to be fcuking around .If she wants to fcuk other men every day , even in her husband's house, what stops her? Afterall majority of married women are fcuking around every day and they are even worse than prawstitutes living in some brothel.
She who is afraid of being single again and who does not know when to quit a depressing marriage; will quit by force ,one day ; either as a dead body in a coffin or as a mental case bound for the lunatic asylum.
After then,her "almighty" husband who she wants to die for , will marry another woman within 3 months.
A word is enough for every wise woman.

Wake up!!!!!!!!!
Ugo | 3/26/2013 1:34:06 PM |
Kate, why talk about old age now? Life begins at 40 and I am sure u are just between 39 and 42. Your life has just begun. Stop feeling old.
Didn't u hear about Dr Bisola who remarried at 53? She had 3 kids frm her previous marriage.

Wake up, my dear. Your life has just began. You can still remarry and hv another child. If one door doesnt close, another one will not open.

You and Genny have done a great job keeping ur daughters frm the public. It is good for the kids.

Babe | 3/26/2013 2:43:43 PM
Look at Kate o! It is true.
Joy and peace are really showing on her face and body.
Since her divorce , truly , Kate has changed . She is looking fresher, younger and more beautiful. Good for you gurl!
But why is it that a few months after women divorce, they start looking fresher, happier , younger and more beautiful?
People are saying it is because when women leave an unhappy marriage , their lives are now free from the problems and stress in their former marriages.
Kate is not the only divorced woman that I have noticed is looking much better than when they were married .
My 45 year old hairdresser was in a very unhappy marriage to a very bad husband for over 20 years. They were always quarrelling and fighting until they finally called it quits about six months ago. She left the man and did not open her shop for many months .
I was in her saloon two weeks ago and I couldn't believe the change in her.
All her customers who came into the saloon that day were shouting and complimenting her about her glowing, fresh skin and overall beauty.
Infact , she was looking 10 years younger than before .
People were asking her , " Mama Dan, look at you o ! So you fit fine like this ?"
So all the ladies wanted to know which cream she was using.
Her reply was " My darlings , just be thanking God for me that I am alive today!
I won't deceive you. This is not the result of any cream, at all. My face cream has remained the same for many years now. But my life has changed and I thank God for His mercies.
Nowadays I am very happy. People say am always smiling and looking PEACEFUL .I agree because I have peace of mind now and I thank God who delivered me from that man . Today I sleep well well and no more stress and wahala in my life. The future looks very brighter!".

Jade | 4/1/2013 6:00:45 PM |
You were right about qualifying it, you called it unhappy. But there are people out there who are still enjoying a blissful marriage. Women blame men all the time and I am not saying that they are always wrong. But we also make wrong choices sometimes. You see a man smoking, drinking, clubbing etc and you go marry him. We get married and you think it's all about the body and sex. We don't know that we are in a battle field. It amazes me how some women sleep lalalala, they don't read the bible, they don't confess words. Evil people are working all night and if someone tells me about the same concerns in Christian marriages, I have a reply already. Christians too get it wrong. We need to walk in the light of the Lord and be close to God. The devil is planning evil against marriage cos it's the bedrock of the society. One day the witches in South A fasted for 210 days in order to break marriages. Marriages broke including that of the Evangelist of the largest church in SA yet Christians are eating for 365 days.Women stop thinking it's all physical that's why the men get tired and are insatiable. Instead go and ask God to show you which one among them is your husband. Start form that premise.
