Hollywood is known for many things: cheesy celebrity home tours, beautiful palm trees, gigantic movie studios and microwave marriages. So when Black Bridal Bliss was approached to feature husband-wife duo, Kam and Ricky Horne, Jr. for Marriage Matters, a hefty dose of skepticism arose. Kam knows the entertainment biz well. The stunning Los Angeles native began modeling and acting at the tender age of 13. The mother of three was a regular on the Tia & Tamera Show which aired on the E! Style Network, Bravo and Oxygen. Hubby Ricky is a writer/director/producer who has worked with industry notables like Kim Fields and Lindsay Lohan.  The Hornes were refreshingly down to earth and candid about their ups and downs since saying “I Do” — dishing on everything from blending families, raising a special needs child and planning a wedding without supportive parents.

Hollywood is unpredictable but we have something that’s stable and that is each other.

Black Bridal Bliss: How long have you two been together and how long have you actually been married

Kam: We met in 2004 and started living together in 2006. We got married in 2007 in St. Lucia.

BBB: Are either of you from St. Lucia? What made you decide to wed there?

Kam: No, neither of us are from there but we wanted a destination wedding. It was an easy decision for us.Our parents weren’t 100% supportive of our relationship. People are fortunate to have supportive parents. We didn’t. We may still do a big ceremony for our 10 year anniversary.

Ricky: We had four guests there and they were all Kam’s friends. It wasn’t about them. It was about us.

BBB: Kudos to you guys! How do you stay grounded raising a family and staying in a committed marriage in Hollywood?

Ricky: My homelife makes it easier to do everything else. Family puts it all in perspective. And our love for God does not waver. My allegiance is to my family and God.

Kam: Yes, Hollywood is unpredictable but we have something that’s stable and that is each other.

3 Ways to Beat the Marriage Winter Blues

The Christmas tree is securely stuffed in its box, the New Year’s champagne glasses are stored in the cabinet and the outdoor landscape looks bleak and dry. You have nothing to look forward to, the kids are back in school, and you are back to the daily grind of life. You may feel blah and bored. You may be wondering what you can do to beat the marriage winter blues. Well here are three things you can do to feel the heat of a spring love.

1. Start planning for Valentine’s Day. If there is a restaurant you want to try, consider making reservations, especially if you know it’s a popular spot for romantic dinners. If you don’t want to go out, make plans for a romantic night at home or even a family night of love with the kids with games and/or movies.

2. Start planning your spring break or summer vacation. Peruse vacation magazines or visit your nearest travel agency for vacation ideas. If your budget doesn’t allow for a big vacation, consider becoming a tourist in your own city. Many of us never visit tourist attractions in our own cities. Check with your tourist bureau or look on the web for free tickets and discount coupons. If you bank account allows, reserve a hotel room in your city as well.  Many hotels offer reasonable romantic weekend packages.

3.  Break your weekly routine by incorporating a date night in the middle of the week. If you don’t go out, make a special dinner at home or call in an order at a local restaurant. Make that night a time where you don’t talk about work or use electronic devices. Even if it is just a couple of hours, you will notice the increase in intimacy. If you have small kids at home you can still have some alone time. After you put them to bed, watch a movie together or if you are both into sports, watch a ballgame.

Whatever you can think of to break the monotony in your daily life will help eliminate the marriage winter blues. Before you know it, your marriage will feel like a spring romance and you won’t feel like your relationship is cold and boring.
