DC Guys

Ebong Eka tells us why his relationship with Lynda is so strong. 

Oct 15, 20100

 

The men/househusbands finally have a chance to share their thoughts about the show. Don't get me wrong, I realize the men/househusbands haven't normally played a role on the reunion shows from other cities, but we appreciate this opportunity to contribute. On the other hand, this particular season has been an absolute anomaly filled with copious amounts of delusion from one of our cast members. I'm pretty sure many of you know who I'm referring to. We've all experienced some of their craziness and therefore have been directly affected in the process. So it's only fitting for the men/househusbands to respond to their nonsense in kind (well verbally of course).

I have to say that the Real Housewives of DC has been both an enlightening and interesting experience for obvious reasons. The experience was enlightening, because I learned so much about the world of reality television and nuances of producing a show. This experience was interesting, because the different personalities of the cast members led to internal conflicts during the show. 

There has been a tremendous outpouring of support towards Lynda and I from fans everywhere. We hope our lives and relationship have been positive experiences for everyone watching. As for marriage, we'll cross that bridge when we get to it ... privately. I think it's more important to continue to build a solid foundation and enjoy life together first. People who stop me in the street usually say the following: 

1. I love you and Lynda on the show. Your love for each other is inspiring/encouraging!

2. We love you guys because you keep it real!

I'm so pleased you have a blog! You and Lynda seem just wonderful. As for which side of the brain, I use both. I was a music major in college, am a visual artist now and run a marketing company with my husband. When running a company, it is dangerous to neglect one hemisphere for the other.

Lots of positive thoughts to you and Lynda! Keep shining and showing the world what graciousness is.

Ebong you are the epitome of what a real gentleman should be like and how to behave. Gotta love you sugar! You have it all, and Lynda is a lucky woman to have you in her life!

Erika, I didn't find your character that interesting on the show. Kind of like Kim G. from NJ who managed to end up in the reunion and didn't belong there. You are not a housewife. Once you are, then we can learn more about you. Simon and Mario as husbands from NY blog regularly.

Ebong - it is refreshing to see an interracial couple (finally!) on the Housewives franchise. My Dad and stepmother have been married for over 20 years and are also an interracial couple. Love holds no boundaries. You and Lynda continue to do your thing because the both of you are fabulous!!

In this day and time, we are focusing on bullying and it I am shocked of how this women gang up on Micheale, it is just stupid and sets no good example for our young children of today, Lynda and the others seem to forget the real purpose in life, let it go against them! Move on to more productive issues! Mark

Ebong, you should be cloned. You are a role model and a class act. You give me hope that there are real men out there. All the best to you and Lynda in every aspect of your lives. Namaste.

Ebong, I can see why Linda is in love with you. I think you explained the Salajis to the tee!! When I first watched the DC housewife's I was put off because Tarque was always on the show. Next year they should do the DC housewife and CD husbands minus you know who.

Ebong,

You are a really classy man and you and Lynda are fantastic together! The magnetism between you comes through the TV. I hope to see a lot more of you (and a lot less of the Salahis) next season.

Bravo please post! Why is Bravo not allowing Erika to blog however Lynda's boyfriend is? Erika is being bashed over and over again and is not being able to defend herself. Ebong has an agenda and it is not "protecting" Lynda. Loved his personal plugs.Hope to see Erika as a cast member next season minus Cat and Lynda.

Congratulations sir, your lady is beautiful inside and outside. I admire you for seeing that and grabbing her up. You both have shown the world what having class means. I thank you for that. Keep her tight to you and stay well.

As the man said, all the questions will be answered next week! This man has conducted himself with nothing but dignity on this show and in his blog. Not sure what you are reading but maybe you should "take the high road"

Okay okay - you are a hunk! Lynda's a great gal and you are good for each other. But . . . Ichiban's my man . . . he stole my heart!

You are a gentleman, a handsome one at that, and one who appears to have a good soul. Lynda is a little dynamo who had to meet her match in a man twice her size, albeit with a gentle spirit. Nice guy in you, Ebong, nice guy. Lucky Lynda....and her kids.

Enjoyed your comments and appreciate your and Lynda's commitment to one another. Very loving and sweet. You conduct yourselves beautifully and I really admire you for it. Don't you think there is just a tiny bit too much profanity and vulgarity these days?

I LOVE LOVE LOVE YOU EBONG!!!!! And I love you and Lynda together- what a fantastic couple you two make. I appreciate you honesty and that you are standing up for Lynda. Tareq should be ashamed at his behavior, both on and off the show. To throw a glass of wine on a woman is disgusting, and I hope you put him in his place next week!!! They really are living in a delusional world!!!

I wish you (and Lynda) nothing but the best!!!! Thanks for your blog- loved it!

I love watching and learning about you and Lynda via the show. As you stated, your relationship is built on love, learning and mutual respect, and that comes across delightfully clear. Age is just a number and skin tone is just that, a tone of one's skin. Neither has to do with love, and you two are a fine example of that :) Kudos and congrats!

I am a bit lost on the left brain as I am right brained practically all the way. I did, however, in university enjoy the math and science I was required to take. Other than balancing my check book and baking, lol, all of it was for naught, though I did appreciate the processes and did quite well. I appreciate a person who is clearly evenly balanced in both, such as yourself.....I find those folks rare though, in my everyday life. Or perhaps it is just the company I keep? Artists, too many damn artists, methinks.

Peace to you both and never lose sight of what is important. It is something that Michaele Salahi talks about a great deal, but I don't see it in practice in their lives: LOVE.

Ebong,

You and your beautiful Lynda are absolutely fantastic. I love watching how much in love you are with each other. You are always articulate and kind, loving and sweet. All the things that all men should be regardless of where they come from or their race. Lynda's right. A man is a man and a woman is a woman. When the lights are off, you don't see any differences. God bless you both and we hope to see you next season.

And the badmouthing continues. Can't any of you take the high road? It's not like you were personally offended, damaged or blamed for what the Salahis did. I find all the outrage misplaced. Thou all doth protesteth too damn much.

So jealous of Lynda. ;) You are a lovely person and everyone deserves an uplifting partner who brings out the best in us. You and Lynda are fortunate to share that. I am not one to care much about the lives of people I only "know" through television but I am so sad for the fallout everyone had to suffer due to the Salahi's actions. That is so unfair and I wish they would recognize the consequences of those actions.

Ebong, you are a classy guy! I loved your blog and your relationship with Lynda. It is refreshing to see a relationship of mutual respect for one another and such acceptance by everyone around you. Imagine what this world would be like if everyone got that memo!! Looking forward to your blog next week....
