Good, 40, and her husband of nearly 10 years, DeVon Franklin, 44, announced their split just days before Christmas 2021. The picturesque couple's news came as a shock to some fans, though others suspected things went awry when neither Franklin nor Good made any appearances on each other's social media accounts.
But aside from matching social media posts confirming her decision to divorce, not much has been said about the process of unleashing her life. However, Good has opened up about mourning the end of the relationship and how she is being pruned in various ways to thrive in the future.
"I've learned not to be a crowd pleaser so much," she told People at the May 9 Hollywood Confidential event, which recognized her for her career spanning decades. Speaking more about the lessons she's learned over the past year, she added, "I've learned that not everyone is going to understand you or like you, and that's okay. And knowing who your tribe is and being genuinely grateful for that, and knowing that sometimes they're not your tribe — that's okay too.”
She continued, "It's been a lot of changes, like a divorce." Now more than ever, the actress says she's increased her intention to "love people and treat them with respect and never let how others treat you, integrity." of who you want to be. I think this season I'm learning to live differently again."
Without a wedding ring and without the ordeal of being a cloth man's wife, Good has reverted to a sexier and more revealing version of herself - much to the delight of fans. "She's single and got circumcised lately lol," one fan wrote under her 'Coachella' look.
