Update: Wanda Sykes


Who was pregnant? Wanda or Alex? Wanda nose has some serious "spread" to it! Usweekly has reported that Wanda Sykes is a "new" mom! Wanda and her "mate" gave birth to twins. Funny - there are no pictures of Wanda's ex-husband David Hall (of seven years) or her current "wife" who goes by the name "Alex". I wonder if David Hall is currently living life as "Alex".


A Wanda Sykes Interview:

“When did you realize you were a lesbian?” and “Why did your first marriage end?”

“This is weird,” she complains. “This is for The Advocate, right?” Right. “So why do you need to know this stuff? Isn’t it just preaching to the choir?”

“I actually made the choice to be straight as a kid,” she says. “Early on I knew [being gay] wasn’t gonna fly. No way. And from the teachers and church and all it was, This is wrong! What’s wrong with me? And you pray and ask God to take it away, and you bury it and bury it, and you shut that part of yourself off. Then you try to live the life that you’re supposed to live.”

She and Hall divorced in 1998, but Sykes is careful to clarify that her marriage didn’t end because of her sexual orientation. “It had nothing to do with that. My marriage was fine. I think it was just…I don’t want to get too much into that.” She hesitates, and then continues, “It’s just that when you bury a part of yourself, you can take those relationships only so far because you can’t be totally open. Once we were divorced there was a defining, liberating moment of, OK, I’m free of this marriage, now what? It’s kind of like giving yourself permission. I guess that’s when I started actively dating women.”

In 2006, Sykes went on a weeklong, end-of-summer vacation with friends to Cherry Grove, one of two predominantly gay communities on New York’s Fire Island. (“I’m not making that Pines money,” she says of the neighboring, ritzier enclave, Fire Island Pines. “But it’s so nice over at the Pines. Nice coffee shops, gourmet foods, and all that crap over there.”) It was a nasty, rainy day, but on the ferry ride to the island Sykes spotted an intriguing woman. “She had on this black trench coat and was carrying a computer bag,” she says. “I was like, We’re going to Fire Island -- what the hell is she doing with her laptop?”

It wasn’t so much the trench coat or the laptop, though, that sparked Sykes’s attention. “She just caught my eye,” she says. And that’s when something happened that she’d never experienced before. “It was like a voice inside me saying, See? That’s what you need, Wanda. That’s what you need.” Sykes’s eyes well up with tears as she tells the story. “She’s beautiful, but there was just this aura about her. We’ve been inseparable since.” Inseparable and protective: Sykes, walking a tightrope, will not say what her wife does for a living. In fact, she tells the whole story of their meeting without once uttering her wife’s name. Later Sykes decided to give us her first name, Alexandra, for the article. “She’s not in show business. I want her to have as much of her private life as she can.”

Two years later, emboldened by the California supreme court’s ruling in favor of marriage equality, she and Alexandra decided to make it official. “This was it,” Sykes explains. “We’re in love and we want to spend the rest of our lives together. That’s why you get married.” So they rented a small hotel in Palm Springs and were married in a simple ceremony before about 40 friends and family members. “We had an amazing weekend. I don’t like to talk about it. It was a very special moment for us, for our friends. I like to keep that.” Sykes is happy—and obviously sentimental: “Even looking at the pictures, I just go back to that moment and get all teary-eyed.”

  1. Damn I use to like Wanda Sykes. Now not so much. Not because of the possibility of her being an intersexual but because just like the rest of the Bast---s in hollywood she is being decietful. Now don't get me wrong, it really is none of our business what her medical condition is, however if you got children and you are not openly claiming them then you have something to hide. Which to me appears that you are a part of this whole Boule shit. I'm telling yall that these are the descendents of the 200 fallen angels!!!

    Hey, if anyone is interested in seeing actual pictures of TRUE HERMAPHRODITES please log in to www.hermaphrodites.us.com. They show everything! It is amazing how their vagina is located right under their penis. They don't have testicles their testes split to form the labia. this is some real shit here yall!!!

  2. Sometimes the vagina is located on the exact location of the anus. I went to the www.hermaphrodites.us.com website and you're right THEY SHOW EVERYTHING but that site is in serious need of an update!

    I am a little salty at "Wanda" because she has a lot of secrets!

    Clearly she admits to them when she said, "It’s just that when you bury a part of yourself, you can take those relationships only so far because you can’t be totally open."

    Her marriage failed because her husband knew nothing about her "past". I bet you that never met her immediately family members.

  5. ARE YOU SERIOUS?

    There are two predominantly gay communities on New York's Fire Island? Could this be the reason why they call it "fire island"? Filled with hermaphrodites?

    "Cherry Grove, one of two predominantly gay communities on New York’s Fire Island. (“I’m not making that Pines money,” she says of the neighboring, ritzier enclave, Fire Island Pines"

    ........................WOW!

    Think about the movie that "Prince" directed: Under the Cherry Moon.

    "Under the Cherry Moon is a 1986 movie directed by and starring Prince as a gigolo named Christopher "Chris" Tracy and Time member Jerome Benton as his partner, Tricky . Together the pair swindle beautiful French women. The situation gets complicated when Christopher falls in love with heiress Mary Sharon (Kristin Scott Thomas) after planning to swindle her when he finds out that she receives a $50 million trust fund on her 21st birthday. Mary's father Isaac (Steven Berkoff) disapproves of the romance and provides an excellent adversary for Tracy."

    When celebrities take the New York ferry to "Cherry Grove" during the wee hours, they feel as if they are riding under the "Moon" as they head to "Cheery Grove".

    Prince drew his inspiration from his many trips to Cherry Grove. You see, Prince real father didn't approve of his romance with a well known "celebrity" hermaphrodite (living life on the downlow).


    I see that many people are taking the late night ferry to "Cherry Grove". You can't tell who is really a woman or who is really a man. Men with ovaries and females with a penis.

    Watch the movie and "pay attention" to the subliminal messages.

  7. This is the most misinforming site on the web. Read a book instead of creating biased garbage.

  8. I think that what you said was actually very reasonable. However, what about this?
    suppose you typed a catchier title? I am not saying
    your information is not good, however suppose you
    added a post title that grabbed folk's attention? I mean "Update: Wanda Sykes" is kinda plain. You ought to look at Yahoo's home page and
    note how they write article titles to get viewers to open the links.

    You might add a video or a pic or two to grab people interested about everything've got to say. In my opinion, it would bring your posts a little bit more interesting.
