It’s been nearly two weeks since Meagan Good and DeVon Franklin announced their divorce on social media. It left many questioning what ended their nine-year marriage. During an appearance on “The Real” Wednesday, Jan. 5, the actress talked about taking a moment to embrace other “transitions” that took place this past year.
“It’s been amazing, like so many transitions. Projects that I prayed for, just health transition, just taking a moment to really take everything in and get myself, my spirit, my soul ready for 40,” said the “Harlem” star. ‘And It’s been a whirlwind with the show and the movies.”
She added, “It’s crazy. It’s a blessing.”
Turning 40 in August marked a special moment for Good to begin making some necessary lifestyle changes such as not drinking.
“I didn’t drink for April, May, June, July, and August,” she said. “I was like, ‘let me just take a beat because I really wanted to just focus on therapy and dive into some things that I experienced in the past that I haven’t spoken about publically yet. And one day, I will whenever God’s called me to.”
She added, “But I was like, I really need to deal with these things and just sit down and dig in and be really intentional about this next season and this next act of my life.”
The “Eve’s Bayou” star intends to continue navigating through life and her career with her faith as a significant factor in “every decision.”
“That’s everything. Faith has to come first,” Good said. “For me, it’s literally like the base that I build everything on. Every decision comes from that place.”
Meagan Good and DeVon Franklin met while filming the 2011 film “Jumping the Broom,” in which Good starred. The former couple got engaged in May 2012 and celebrated their ninth wedding anniversary in June 2021.
A joint statement to People magazine in December 2020 revealed that Good and Franklin separated four months before filing for divorce. A close source explained that the former couple struggled to spend quality time together because their conflicting “work schedules often kept them apart.”
“They moved really quickly when they first got together, and DeVon fell super hard for her,” the source told People. “It’s sad but it’s been a long time coming. Meagan is really busy with work right now and is doing her best to stay positive. After so long together, it’s a big life change for both of them obviously.”
