With the return of Black Love on OWN, Saturday, September 5 we’re introducing the Black Love community to the season 4 couples.
Bill & Kristen
Years married: 19
Residence: Los Angeles, CA
What we love about them: “You know how I knew you liked me? Your mom told me. I’ll never forget, it was Thanksgiving. So I said, “Let me just call her and say happy Thanksgiving.” And her mom was like, “Are you, Bill? Oh my God, Kristen won’t stop talking about you.” We can all agree that Mama contributed to a match made in heaven!
Memorable Black Love quote: “Everyone’s dating online, social media, or DMing, and you cannot get the same feel from a DM. We would stay-up, sit on the phone, and fall asleep on the phone. It’s that connection and that energy. You cannot get that unless you have one-on-one contact. That was so intense [for us]. I read energy really well, and so I was drawn to his energy. I didn’t know why because the public persona really didn’t match what I thought, but inside, I was drawn to his energy that is bigger than life.” – Kristen
