VALENTINE'S DAY NIGHTMARE
We've all had bad Valentine's Days when it seemed everyone else in the world was in love but us, and we didn't get a single card - not even from that creepy stalker, but Regina's story takes the cake.
Apparently, Mr. Romance dropped no hints as to his changing feelings until that very special day, when he told Regina he "wasn't feeling it anymore." Thanks for the heads-up, pal!
Ever discreet, Regina refused to name any names
HE LOVES ME, HE LOVES ME NOT
But Mr. Romance wasn't content with breaking our Regina's heart, he tried playing some head games with her, coming over with flowers and saying "I still love you."
"Someone broke up with me on Valentine’s. (expletive) Yeah. I’m serious. Then he actually sent me flowers that said, ‘I still love you’ and I threw the flowers in the trash and he was upset that I threw them in the trash and I was like, ‘(expletive) you,’” Regina said.
WHO'S THE MAN THAT DONE HER WRONG?
Ever discreet, Regina refused to name any names, but she did hint that the timing - 2013 - would give fans a clue to the mystery man's identity.
“They’ll know. I love flowers but he thought that was right. What an ass, right?” she said.
WAS MALCOLM-JAMAL WARNER THE HEARTBREAKER?
Those in the know have already figured out that in 2013 Regina announced her break up with Malcolm-Jamal Warner with whom she had been living for two years.
Regina commented on the split on social media in March, so you do the math. Malcolm, how could you?
Regina was previously married to Ian Alexander Sr. for ten years, and they share a son, Ian Alexander Jr.
