The OWN network came up with the ingenious idea of creating a show called “Black Love” where they speak with well-known celebrity couples about their relationships.
While the premise of the show doesn’t depict a median visage of black love for the 50 million or so regular everyday blue and white-collar black US citizens, it does a great job reinforcing some of the ridiculous standards that are based upon the situations that these celebs and their lives take in a 1%er Hollywood world. And the masses eat it up … But I digress.
Tina Knowles Lawson appeared in a recent episode where she talks about Tina Knowles Lawson… and somewhere in the clips, we’re to assume that she’s married to this random handsome guy beside her. I say that because in the clips that OWN provides, Richard Lawson doesn’t say much and I’m sure that’s by design.

David and Tamela Mann, aka Mr. Brown & Cora from Tyler Perry’s ‘Meet The Browns,’ are my favorite of the three couples who cover this year’s ‘Black Love’ issue and I feel they deserve the top spot in this post after maintaining a 25 year marriage.
The cute couple revealed how they maintain the passion in their relationship, stating:
Stay in love because when you’re in love, it covers a multitude of fault. Our relationship wasn’t based on good sex or having a lot of money. It was based on just straight friendship. That’s what has kept us.” –David Mann
“I pray and ask God to keep my heart and my eyes burning only for David Mann. I speak his name in my prayers, because I want the desire to stay, so when he touches me, I get chills.” –Tamela Mann
