Reality star London “Deelishis” Charles is covering the latest issue of Sister2Sister magazine. In the issue, the Flavor of Love Star talks about her pregnancy, her relationship with business man Orlando Gordon, and much more! The following excerpts are courtesy of RealGossip101:
Deelishis on naming her daughter Lexington Brielle: “Orlando’s name is a city. My name is a city. So we wanted to think of a city that was cute enough for her. So I was looking all over the map. He’s Orlando, Florida, and I’m London, England, and so we gave her Lexington, [Kentucky.]”
Deelishis on why she and Orlando decided to have a child together: “We had been trying. We tried for a little while. I said I was going to work on my album and I wasn’t going to do a reality TV for a while. And I was constantly getting work as far as hosting parties, but that was not something I wanted to do permanently. So I said, ‘Well, you know what? I’m going to really go hard with my music, and I’m going to go really hard with film. I’m going to audition for any and everything that I think is good for me in movies.’ So I said, ‘Listen, I may as well have my babies now–or my baby.’ I wanted at least one more because Jasmine is 10 years old and I wanted another baby and I made that very clear while we were dating. Just in casual conversation he would ask, ‘Do you want any more children?’ I would say yes and I would ask him how many he wanted. He said, ‘Well, maybe one or two. We both came from the same background mentally where we didn’t want a host of children, but we did want one together. He has a 5-year-old daughter and I have a 10-year-old.”
Deelishis on being pregnant the second time around: “Orlando talks about me now that I’m pregnant. He says that I am an emotional wreck most of the time, so he has to go into mute world; he nods his head. I think my father taught him this. I will speak and he won’t respond until I’m done with my yelling or venting or saying whatever it is I have to say. And then he says, ‘Okay, yes, dear.’ He has the honey-do thing down pat. So when I say, ‘Honey, I need you to do this. Honey, I need you to do that,’ he says, ‘Okay.’ At the beginning of this pregnancy I was very whiny. I didn’t experience this with Jasmine, but my first trimester was just miserable. I used to call Taj (of the SWV) and I would cry and complain because she had said her pregnancy with Eddie George–their youngest child was so bad the entire nine months. I said, ‘Well, you had to have found some release in some fashion. What did you do for that?’ She said, ‘The only relief was, like, loading up a gun. So I had to decide if I was going to pull the trigger or not.’ By the time I reached my third month, people said that if I wasn’t going to have one of those nine-month-long sickness pregnancies by the time I reached my third month, that I would be okay. That’s true. I’m eating a little bit better. I get around a little bit better because I was miserable. Orlando would cook and I would say, ‘Close the door. I don’t even want to smell it. I don’t even want you to sleep in this room. I have a little Yorkie puppy, and it was so bad I was considering giving her away. I couldn’t take the smell of her either. I went from a 36B to a 38DD. Ma, when I tell you I feel the difference, sometimes I feel like I’m suffocating. I can be driving and I have to unstrap myself in the back from feeling suffocated in the front. So flying has really become a problem for me. So, I said at the end of November that I was going to be done with flying by mid-December. And Orlando said, ‘Well, you can totally take advantage of your music.’ So I’ve been recording down in my home studio, and I’m excited about that because I never really took the time that was needed. I’m writing. A lot of this will be from me.”
“I’m very conscious right now and I think this baby is a different baby than Jasmine because I don’t typically like water unless I put some type of Crystal Light or some Tang or something in it. I’m not one to drink water. This entire pregnancy, I love water. I love it. I love it warm, cold, frozen. This baby loves vegetables and I’m a big fan of Boston Market’s creamed spinach. I like cooking now with vegetables; I don’t like fried foods. But I love vegetables and water and fruit.”
