He sets his Sightseeing features back to love
Devon Franklin, motivational speaker and ex-husband of actress Meagan Good, gives newlyweds tips, tricks and tea for navigating the troubled waters of marriage as the newest relationship coach on Lifetime’s “Married At First Sight.” The new season begins July 6 in San Francisco.
The New York Times bestselling author says the pain of his divorce after 9 years of marriage to Good, 40, helped in part his ability to help new brides and grooms – who are meeting at the altar for the first time – have happy endings after Result.
“Throughout everything I’ve been through, I’ve found that … [It’s important to] resist the temptation to assign blame [in relationships]. Take responsibility,” the 44-year-old told The Post exclusively on the 2022 BET Awards red carpet.
“In relationships, it’s often very easy to say, ‘Oh, that person is the problem,'” he continued. “No. Look in the mirror and say, ‘Okay, what’s my part in this? And what can I do to change myself?’.
He and sex therapist Pia Holec join “MAFS” veterans Dr. Pepper Schwartz and Pastor Calvin Roberson as coaches for the upcoming season 15. The two join the show while former sex and relationship guru Viviana Cole is departing.
Franklin tied the knot with Good in June 2012 and announced on Instagram in December 2021. According to US Weekly, the divorce was finalized on June 2, 2022
In his Breakup Bulletin, the Breakthrough producer wrote, “After much prayer and thought, we have decided to step into our future separately but together forever. Celebrating almost a decade of marriage together and an enduring love.”
“There’s no one to blame, we believe this is the next best chapter in the evolution of our love. We are incredibly grateful for the life-changing years we’ve spent together as husband and wife,” he added. “We are also very grateful to God for the testimony created in both of us and for blessing our lives together.”
And as the newly appointed “MAFS” expert, Franklin said counseling others taught him a lot about how to effectively address matters of the heart going forward.
“I’ve learned that I have a lot to offer and that I’m passionate about love and relationships,” he told the Post. “And I want people to find her.”
Despite his enlightened take on romance, when Franklin was asked if he was ready to start dating again, he dodged the question with a resounding laugh and ended the interview abruptly.
