Following an incredibly candid evening (“I was terrified, because he told me exactly who he was—he was absolutely honest about his past,” she said on Black Love) he was forthright as he dropped her off at home. “He just said, ‘You are a very beautiful and nice woman, and it was a pleasure spending time with you,'” she remembered. “And he shook my hand.”
Then he called 20 minutes later. “I said, ‘You got home already?'” she shared. “He said, ‘No, I’m at the Ralph’s down the street, but I just wanted to tell you again what a great time I had and what a beautiful woman you are.'”
And another 20 after that. “He called again: ‘I just want to tell you I got home, and you are a beautiful woman. I’m about to go to sleep, and I just wanted to tell you to have a good night,” Davis recalled.
