Vivica A. Fox is no longer engaged to ex-boyfriend Slimm. Though the actress was ready for marriage and kids, she spoke to Access Hollywood about the “red flags” in relationships and being distracted by good looks.

Read excerpts and watch the interview below:

“I was ready to do the family thing but unfortunately things didn’t work out. I had the courage to end things before we jumped the broom and wasted a lot of money. I’ve been married before and if there are warning signs, you should pay attention to them before you get families involved with all the hoopla.”

“Sometimes when you’re successful you just have to make sure that someone is coming to you with real intentions. That means taking the time to get to know them for real and make sure they’re not dating you as the celebrity but they’re dating you as a person. I mean you are who you are if you are a celebrity. But that does make it a little bit difficult to make sure that someone isn’t marrying you for a shopping spree.”

“I told myself I’m going to try something different next time ‘cause I happened to fall in love with a six pack and a smile and look what that’s gotten me.”
