Nollywood actress, Doris Simeon, seems to have put behind her the collapse of her marriage to movie producer, Daniel Ademinokan, behind her and has decided to move on with her life. Doris who has pushed her energy into her business venture, believes that if a marriage is not working, the best thing is for one to take a walk instead of staying and getting killed in the process. She was reaction in an interview with City People magazine when the question arose over her broken marriage which was occasioned by the dalliance of her husband and fellow actress, Stella Damasus, who has since moved into Daniel’s house as a live in lover. Excerpts from the interview:
You seem to have moved on after your marriage break-up, what really led to the break-up?
Obviously, life, goes on. Shit happens. If it is not working well, walk out of it. You don’t have to die on whatever it is. It is just one of those things. What has kept you going after all the controversies? My God and the advice of my parents. Though, they are late but their prayers and the way they groomed me to this level before they passed on has really kept me going.
How where you able to stand after the whole saga?
It is not easy but I just had to sit up and think about it, if you die in your agony, what would be left for whoever you have behind? It is better to sit up. That is why they said, ‘when there is life, there is hope’. Sit up and think of the next step you have to take and think of how to be a better you and affecting people’s lives positively.
Did you think it could happen?
Nobody would ever think of anything bad to themselves. Everything that happened, God knows it.
Did you see any sign about what happened?
No there was no sign.
