: LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Wayne Brady is officially single again. The 35-year-old comedian has been living separately from his wife, Mandie, for four years, but the couple's divorce was just finalized this week.
According to papers filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court, the pair married in April 1999 and officially separated in April 2006, citing irreconcilable differences. They have one daughter, 5-year-old Maile Brady.
"Mandie is my best friend. We still love each other and we are raising our beautiful daughter Maile together as a team," Brady said in a statement issued by his publicist.
The couple used a mediator to arrive at a final divorce settlement. Details about their child custody, child support and property-division arrangements were not made public.
Brady recently guest-starred on TV's "Everybody Hates Chris" and "How I Met Your Mother."
MTO why did you have to mention that he has an Asian wife? this isnt 1955, interracial couples are everywhere these days..idiots..at least it was amicable..sometimes people just dont work as a couple..I just hope that lil girl doesnt develop Waynes hairline..thats the weirdest hairline I have seen in a long time
Now why is it MTO can get the name of Wayne Brady's wife right but when it comes to some black celebs, the call them by either their character name or some stupid made up name like "dude with white shoes" or some stupid shyt???????????? I swear MTO, yall suck most of the time!
@ sayanything/gigi2007....you all know how MTO's backwards racist azzes are....Always race baiting. They threw "Asian" in there trying to get people to come in here and bash him for being with another race of woman.
Anyhow, Wayne is a very talented brotha. And it sounds like him and his ex wife are being civil and working together to do what's best for their daughter which is mature and commendable
mto does it really matter that she is asian..i dont recall yall saying "michael jordan's divorce from his BLACK wife is now finalized"..eff outta here with that racism..anyways I like Wayne. He'll find someone new soon.
WAYNE won't get a sistah. he will get another asian woman 'cause they like men with baby d*cks! seriously though i work with an asian chick and she does not believe black men have big d*cks cause she has never seen one...
wish I was not a black woman... Black women gets no love... I can't have no full black kids... I HAVE to have mixed kids, so they won't have it so hard....and if he is black, he GOTTA be High Yella.
I know...sounds Ignorant...but that's how I feel forreal.
@smores30: What difference does it make which ethnicity he chooses to date?
@smileypeach: You sound as if you can't find anyone for yourself and then deflect the blame onto black men who date outside their race. That's just a self esteem issue.
Most of the posters who are terminally single women, are the ones who can't grasp the fact that black men do date outside their race. It's not a life ending issue. It's not a life threatening issue either. Nor is it an epidemic. The majority of black people still do date each other.
maybe so, but I wish I wasn't a black woman... I'm so tired of being compared to white/asian women, Im tired of hearing that black women are loud and ghetto, can't take care of their man needs, welfare good for nothings... and what hurts the most is hearing this from Black men... all on TV talking about why they don't mess with Black Women cause we not good enough. Im just tired of being a black woman...if I could change my skin color I would.
What's the matter Smiley Peach....it may not be your skin color it may be your breath..or attitude or you may look like a combodian chimp....Black is not ur issue....maybe you need ur teeth fixed or butt injections...
or maybe b/c I'm a black woman... you cant tell me that if you had to pick out of 3 women that was white or asian or black you would pick black first... Black women are just not beautiful to most black men...the only ones they consider good looking is mixed. blk women are sterotyped to much to being these mean spirit, bitter, cussing, popping gum, trashy women... and I'm tired of trying to defend 'the black woman' all the time.
I wish you didn't feel that way, because black men that only date outside their race are weak and ignorant. So why would you want them anyway. White women put up with soo much disrespect that we wouldn't stand for. I know cause I've worked with white women who only dated black men and they got dogged out!!! They hate themselves and feel inferior so they marry white women because they feel like that makes them more accepted in society. I love my black men and I am an black educated business owner with a black educated man with a Master's degree and we're ready to show the world that black people are educated, well mannered, and aren't ghetto. I can't wait to have my lil black kids that look just like us and tell them how special they are because obviously these black men weren't loved or told it was okay to be black.
I never really liked that coon Wayne Brady, I mean ever since his daytime talk show I never clicked with him. Like he sings his jingles, he smiles really big for the white people, and he dances, you give him some watermelon and fried chicken, he'd be a regular minstrel show.
And I still think his daughter looks like Bubbles the monkey.
Honey, I truly feel sorry for you if you can sit there and say you wish yo weren't a black woman. Black women are the most beautiful race on this planet. True, there are some that choose to act ghetto, take advantage of WelFare, and have kids by different men or whatever. But NEWSFLASH, so do white women, hispanic women, and so on. You need to look in the mirror honey and love what you're staring at b/c you are only born with one body and one skin color. So if you don't love it, no one else will.
Now, as for Wayne Brady, yes he can marry whom he chooses to. But, I do understand where most women are coming from. It seems like black men marry outside the race once they get a little fame and money.
I know everyone is entitled to their opinions, but please try to refrain from making negative comments about my niece. No one should have anything negative to say about a child. That goes for you Bklyn Rouge
WAYNE BRADY WAS NEVER FUNNY..SORRY...I ALWAYS FIND IT FUNNY WHEN THESE BLACK MEN MARRY OUTSIDE THEIR RACE AND IT ENDS UP NOT WORKING OUT....I THOUGHT THESE NON BLACK WOMEN WERE
SUPPOSED TO BE MORE SWEET,GIVING,HUMBLE,AND CLASSIER THAN BLACK WOMEN...THEY ARE ALSO SUPPOSED TO NOT BE GOLDDIGGERS...IF THESE THINGS ARE TRUE THAN WHY DO MOST OF THESE INTERACIAL COUPLES IN THE PUBLIC EYE NEVER WORK OUT...COULD IT BE TAT THESE WOMEN ARE ONLY SWEET AND HUMBLE FOR THE STACKS????????I WONDER HOW MANY OF THESE NON WHITE WOMEN WOULD BE WITH THESE DUDES IF THEY ORDINARY MOES MAKING 40 GRAND A YEAR...BTW...WAYNE BRADY SUKS AZZ
SEE WHY MTO COULDNT JUST PUT WIFE!
AND SMILEY PEACH ARE YOU SERIOUS AND ARE YOU REALLY BLACK? OK I KNOW That ALOT OF BLACK MEN DONT DATE BLACK WOMEN BUT THERE IS SOME THAT LOVE BLACK WOMEN ALL MEN NOT TRYNA GET NON BLACK WOMEN!! WITH SOME MEN IT DONT MATTER RACE AS LONG AS THEY LIKE WHAT THEY SEE!!
BUT FU*K MTO ALWAYS TRYNA BRING RACE INTO SH*T EVERY BLUE MOON THAT I DO DECIDE TO COME TO THIS RAGDY ASS SITE THEY TALKING ABOUT RACE
You guys on MTO call Diddy's little girls ugly and call this little girl beautiful. WTF? This little girl truly has the facial features of a monkey. Not sure how she looks at a different angle or in other pictures, but seriously, in this picture she looks like a monkey.
I am really shocked at some of these comments , why does race have to be THE topic? we marry who we LOVE regardless of our race there's no law that states we should marry within our race ,we're supposed to be smarter then this ,do you see animals caring what color the other is ? NO i think not , i think thats is the problem we have today in our society we dwell to much on race instead of working together to make it a better place to live in. enough said i'm OUT
