“Elgin Charles, Jackee’s Effeminate Man And Ex-husband”


If you’ve ever tuned into VH1’s “Beverly Hills Fabulous” you’ll be greeted by the flamboyance of Elgin Charles. I love this show because this man is fierce. An older handsome African-American man, who sports purses, wears a shoulder length perfectly coiffed wrap at all times, switches his hips, turns his neck and whips his hair back and forth better than Willow Smith. And the man was married to actress Jackee Harry.

The reality show chronicles the daily and often trite happenings at the ambitious businessman’s upscale salon. Like most reality television programs, the show centers on the cast members’ and their personal flair.

Jackee Harry makes an appearance in one episode, where she meets Elgin for lunch and he assumed she lured him there for sex. Watching the former couple interact was more like catching a glimpse of two girlfriends having lunch, not lovers.

So what’s up with Jackee Harry hooking up with an effeminate black man? What makes an attractive woman decide to nest with a man who wants to paint hers and his own fingernails each day? Has the shortage of marriage-minded, eligible black men led women to make the ultimate compromise of sharing her man with another man?

According to statistics less than 50 percent of Black women are married. Additionally, almost 50 percent of marriages end in divorce and the primary culprits are money matters and infidelity. It’s obvious why Elgin is Jackee’s ex-husband, he comes across as having a little “sugar in his tank”.

Jackee and Elgin cohabit in the same home, where they co-parent their 17-year-old son. Ultimately, what makes a relationship work depends on the couple…and we know with these two it’s their business.

Still, when we look at women in the limelight who had effeminate mates (Terry McMillan, Star Jones and Valerie Ashford) we can’t help but question what went into their decision? Whether it was loneliness or love, a man shortage or just a good man, some men present themselves as straight when their on the down low all along.

  3. Black Women in the public eye, have always made poor choices in mates, this is nothing new. Successful Black Women, have always struggled to find partners of equal yoke. The attraction to Gay Men, is no different for Black Women as it is for White Women. Both have always found The Gay Man to be physically attractive, while overlooking the obvious.

  4. A successful, attractive Man, Gay or Straight is always going to be considered a catch for any woman if it brings about the desired result: ENVY from other Women! This plan always backfires in the end because of the obvious. My advice to women, would be one that is timeless: Don’t go after Men you want go after Men who want YOU!

  5. A man who is anything but masculine is an immediate turn off for me. But I can see why some women would like that. I imagine he may be much more sensitive to her needs. A lack of sensitivity/romance is a huge complaint from many married and dating women…

  6. My man must be man in every sense of the word. There should be no question as to which way he swings.

    1. His hair can’t be longer than mine.
    2. His nails can’t be longer than mine – and I have naturally long nails!
    3. Absolutely NO effimminate ways whatsoever
    4. No past homosexual relationsips.

    a man should be a man in every sense of the word and there should be any question about his manhood. That’s how it should be in my opinion.
