MillionaireMatch.com was able to catch up with a few of the stars and talk about love and relationships.
Millionaire Match: “Do you think it’s spiritually beneficial for a woman to abstain from sex?”
Danielle: “I think it can be spiritually beneficial for a woman to abstain from sex. It serves as an opportunity to pick substance over style. When I went through the phase in my life, my mom said to me, "You have to start saying yes to the nice ones. You never say yes to the nice ones."
“When I took sex out of the equation, it made it a lot easier to say yes to the nice ones. I figured, well, I’m not sleeping with them anyway. Then I found out what it was like to be treated properly. I started finding myself attracted to men who treated me with kindness and respect rather than men who just looked good with their shirt off and called when they felt like it.”
MM: “Do you think sex is overrated?”
Danielle: “No, sex is awesome. It’s so great. It’s not overrated at all. But I think sex is over publicized. I think sex is great when you’re having sex with someone you are super into.”
MM: “How do you feel about online dating?”
Danielle: “I think online dating is right for the right people. I have several friends who met their spouses online. I think it’s a matter of what your personal lifestyle is. If you are a person that works from home and you don’t have the opportunity to get out and socialize a lot, it’s probably for you!”
MM: “Is love overrated?”
Benzino: “That’s a good question. I never use to think that. I don’t think love is overrated. I think the concept of love is amazing, but there’s a lot of factors going into keeping that concept amazing and that’s why I think, maybe, we lack at it. I just think love is...especially when you see it on television and the movies, you hear about it and...it’s just so many factors that come into keeping love as beautiful as you want it to be. That’s the struggle. That’s the fight. So I don’t think it’s overrated.”
MM: “What can we expect to see on "The Next:15" ?”
Claudia: “You’re in for some treats and surprises. Someone actually tries to perform a musical number. That’s interesting. But I will say, you’re going to see a softer side of Laura [Govan] that you haven’t seen. You’re going to see Benzino become a dad and how he handles all of his emotions and outbursts. People think New York is a certain way, but you’ll see a softer side of her.”
