Is it me or does it seem Prince had more candid photos with Mani than Mayte? Not an issue, just interesting.

I wonder if and when her book will come out?

I've thought the exact same thing. Whatever caused their relationship to go south they did appear genuinely happy together for a time.

Agreed. Thanks for posting. Although I must admit that when I see how happy he looks in these photos, and think about how it ended, it makes me so sad for him.

Good points. The happiness I see from him is more of a peaceful and relaxed happiness.

Could I be wrong about her? God, it's all so confusing! I've never liked her but I agree, he's always seemed much more candid and truly happy with her... maybe I've got her all wrong... lovely photos.

Probably because Mani was with Prince in non stop photos from videos tours and photoshoots from being in the band. There are many others with them at parties in Europe, fashion shows, with other celebs etc.


Mani wasn't in the band so the pictures would be much different.

Absolutely, that's how I would describe the look on his face.

I wonder how old Eric feels about this post...and all the previous posts that seem a bit initmate to be from a married, mother of two, ex-wife?

There have to be MANY hundreds or thousands of photos we haven't seen of these two or of each other, including the private day-to-day ones. They were married.

It is a mystery of what happend in that marriage. He seemed happy with her and you do not want to think he was that self-destructive that he ruin a good thing.

She's no diffferent than any of the others. He was happy with her until he wasn't.

I mean if he did have sex he would break every rule Jehova's have regarding premarital sex so Prince is really just friends with them all anyway.

Okay before all the Manuela hate begins, I want to say a few things.

1.) People are complicated with multiple and contrasting characteristics within them, and their motivations are often varied and multi-faceted as well. Maybe she partly posted this in order to be remembered as part of the narrative about Prince, to counter Mayte's assertion that Prince is/was her husband. But that picture is truely lovely, warm and rare, and she was completely respectful of Prince's aversion to birthdays (even seeming to apologize for celebrating it) and she seemed to be able to back up what the picture was about.

2.) Maybe, highlighting and honoring the good times is all we have. In other words, when people are truely able to find moments of warmth and connection and when insecurities, self-interest, distrust, ambition, and miscommunication melt away and people just jell with one another--its all good.

Human beings are a hot mess..but they are also capable of wonderous moments.

IN OTHER WORDS---I LOVE THE PICTURE> THANKS MANUELA> and no its not a bad thing to honor an ex-husband who died unnecessarily and alone. It doesn't mean she doesn't love her current husband. Love comes in different shapes, sizes, and forms. It can be tainted and even a bit ill-conceived but it doesn't mean its not there. Love is whatever you want it to be as Prince said in the song "Love". Maybe, Manuela is just acknowledging that by honoring a fallen man..

When I see photos of them they look like a happy married couple. I never got that feeling from Prince & Mayte. I know different decade and she was in the band and all that. But I just get a happier vibe from these photos.

I see what you mean and I agree.
I wonder if Mayte has any? I don't see her posting any. Maybe she had so little say-so that she had none? Or P wasn't into personal photography so much yet.

One thing though...I do wish Manuela would be direct - just once. There's always some lack of transparency, i.e. hinting that Prince said something to her to make her laugh, but not saying what. There always seems to have to be some attempt to cause a mystery with this one.
Only Prince can make mystery attractive.

Her statement didn't bother me. It was probably a private moment between the two of them. That doesn't need to be shared with the public imo.

I know. Man, she comes across so much like she's trying to be slick. I've never liked her but sometimes I think I could be wrong. But you're right- she should just say it. I still think she's going to be releasing a coffee table book of photos like this of she and Prince. confused We'll see...

_--- nice pic
--- she is not a performer so their pics would be candid or paparazzi/ awards shows stuff.
--- his relationship with MG was a big,MGM type production And according to MG their mutual love of performance was a major point of connection between the two of them.
If it's magic, then why can't it be everlasting.....

I would look forward to that. But please, no cryptic quotes next to each photo. Just truly loving and authentic.

She's no diffferent than any of the others. He was happy with her until he wasn't.

Thank you! It takes time to realize a relationship grows apart with circumstances of life.

There are many candid photos with other women as well. Just look at Prince and Andy Allo for example.

This is my normal life. These marital standards cannot be recreated with money.

Sure she was respectful of P not celebrating his birthday.rolleyes rolleyes

M2 didnt celebrate either when she converted to JW and then quickly left after the divorce.

This ex is a slick one.

M1 and M2 need to quit.

Both are desperate for attention.

There is a reason he left both these women behind and didnt look back.

After reading these statements, it reminded me of a response "keepinitreal" posted about Prince and Mani looking so happy in the photo of them at the basketball game. (way back in 2004)

I don't know for sure who 'Keepinitreal' was for sure, but IMHO, it sounds like it's the Purple One himself. This is what he said on coments about judging the happiness of a couple by a photo:

keepinitreal

minneapolisgenius said:

Preciousa863 - Okay let's get real again. Just want to get real on three major points:

1) U is right Mani DONT look nothing like Vanity or Mayte. But she is trying hard to imitate them due to possible personal insecurities. In the eyes of God and Jesus all people are beautiful so to say one is more beautiful than the other is rather shallow in my humble opinion. Beauty begins within spiritually and the only person we should be imitating is Jesus.

2) True, people do have their personal preferences. But for a person to change themselves with hair weaves/extensions, makeup, and hoop earrings to TRY to become what they THINK a person wants is a self-esteem issue in my opinion.

3) Don't be so sure about yourself on the divorce rumors. Read the body language in the photograph. Also if I recall Prince and Mayte had numerous photographs together prior to their divorce. I am not sayin the rumors are true or not. I am saying a photo opportunity does not automatically equal a happy relationship. ---Just Keeping It Real ---


About that last, my husband and I have similar body language all the time, and it's not like we're ever getting a divorce anytime soon! nuts They're at a game! What, are they supposed to be all over each other so the public can "tell" they're happy?


Minneapolisgenius - I thank U have made the assumption that my observations are purely based on a picture. eye have observed body language between Prince and Mani on numerous occasions in person not in a picture. And on the real ...out of pure love... if your husband is giving you that kind of body language I think you should talk to him about it. ---Just Keeping It Real---[/quote]

Well I'm just going by this picture posted here, as everyone else is. You need to make clear what your situation is (i.e. you work with Prince, or whatever) if you are going to be posting things about how much you see them together on a regular basis.

What's wrong with Prince's body language here? I was comparing this picture, to how I might look with my husband if we went out. I'm sure if people saw us sitting like this, they wouldn't say, "Oh, look at their body language. They must be having marital problems!"

And couples DO have fights, arguments, and problems sometimes. Sometimes it may show in their body language as well. But you jump to the conclusion, that because of what you've seen, they're headed for divorce. Not just them for that matter either. You just implied that my husband and I were having marital problems and that I need to "talk" to him about it, just from one comment I made.
Boy, you sure are perceptive. But then I forgot; you have the inside scoop on them. Sorry.[/quote]

minneapolisgenius said: Obviously U did not read my post completely or correctly. I specifically stated that I was not saying the divorce rumors are true or not. I specifically stated a photo opportunity does not equal a happy relationship. But it appears U are answering your own question when U stated couples do have marital problems sometime.
