Aretha Franklin REVEALS Wedding DEETS And TALKS ABOUT Affair With Late Night Talk Show Host!

Aretha Franklin has revealed deets about her upcoming nuptials and opened up about an affair she had with a late night talk show host! Deets inside.....

The Queen of Soul is in love and ready to share it with all her fans. During a recent interview, she talked about beau Willie AND revealed she once had an affair with a late night talk show host.....but who?  Was it Tavis Smiley? Arsenio?  Jimmy Kimmel??  Read the highlights below.......... 

On why she’s getting married again at 69:

“I like being married. It’s an institution that I like. .So momentarily I don’t see any reason why I shouldn’t be married. I need taking care of a little more, I think. Let someone else be strong. Sometimes what you’re looking for is already there.”

On planning the wedding:

“You know I am very hands-on. There is no way in the world anyone else could do my wedding other than myself, along with whomever I select to do various things.”

On how Willie proposed:

“We were … just kind of talking along those lines, and then it got very serious. I just said, `Is that a proposal?’ and he said `yes.’ And that’s how that happened; we just kind of talked into it.”

On the wedding dress:

“I’d love to see what they [Donna Karan and Vera Wang] would do custom for me, without me saying anything. They’re known for kick butt (dresses).”

On the location:

“I’m kind of leaning that way ["the exclusive Hamptons"] because it’s closer to home, and more friends could get there easily."

On her dream performers:

“I would love to have Smokey (Robinson) sing, my dearest, oldest friend [along with gospel singer Karen Clark and Stevie Wonder].”

On her previous relationship and affair BEFORE Willie:

“We had an intimate affair. (He was) one of America’s late-night talk-show hosts. At this point I’m thrilled it didn’t (work), and what I was looking for was already here.  We’re very compatible, and he supports me and I support him a lot, and he has given me specialized attention that I don’t think I’ve received from anyone else. I receive a lot of male attention, but Will is more special than all the rest.

 

 

Congrats Ms. Franklin!

As rich as Miss 'Retha is, it

As rich as Miss 'Retha is, it bothers me when she doesn't dress for her size. If I had her money, I'd be laid head to toe all the time.

ARETHA is the QUEEN OF SOUL.

ARETHA is the QUEEN OF SOUL. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but come on with some of the derogatory statements. She earned the right to wear spaghetti straps if she want to! She even shut Oprah's ass down one time on her show. I dare one of yall to say that ish to her face. But you wish you hadn't. Get it Aretha. Wishing her much happiness, spaghetti straps and all....lol. R_E_S_P_E_C_T!!!!!! your ancestors young folk!

Most of the comments on here

Most of the comments on here are have me cramping in my stomach with laughter. If some talk show host was hit that is was back in the day(60's), trust me, before most of you were born.....allllll-right

Lawd have mercy! Aretha is a

Lawd have mercy! Aretha is a hot mess and half. This Willie dude is NO GOOD. He's younger than sons, and he's a male pimp golddigger. Aretha is paying for the dyck and this man is out to get her money. I can't wait until her biopic comes out because her story is really quite tragic and sad.

Aretha, please NO spaghetti

Aretha, please NO spaghetti straps on the dress. Spaghetti straps are NOT your friend!!!!! Please consult a stylist because the mirrors in your home must have come from circus/fair. And another thing - wear a bra on your wedding day. Your breast are always sagging to your waist or kicking up sparks from the curb.
