My Top Four Favorite Asian Interracial Couples


My Top Four Favorite Asian Interracial Couples

Khloe Kardashian Odom and Lamar Odom

Khloe Kardashian Odom and Lamar Odom

Hi everyone!

Considering the news of Heidi Klum and Seal's decision to divorce, just wanted to write about my favorite interracial couples - mainly Asian interracial coupling. I really wanted it to be my top five, but it was like pulling teeth with couples I actually adored. Three out of the four I have listed have Black males, figures haha. Trust me I didn't mean it to turn out that way, but I couldn't think of many off the top of my head except for these. Whether they're together or not, married or dating, I adore them for one reason or another:

1) Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom (married) - Their relationship seems genuine. I like them because they take their relationship sincerely because A) they got married first, B) then decided to have children. I wouldn't put divorce past them, considering everyone is getting divorced nowadays, but for as long as they stay together, I wish them well. New season of "Khloe and Lamar" starts Sunday, Feb. 19 at 10/9 c. Woot woot! Plug, plug.. because you know I'll be watching. **There was a dispute between my boyfriend and I on whether you would consider Armenian to be Middle Eastern or European. For as much as I would call it, I think Armenian is Middle Eastern; take it how you want.**

2) Connie Chung and Maury Povich (married) - "Maury" was one of my favorite shows growing up - before it got uber trashy. I was really young when I first heard that Maury was married to Connie Chung and was so delighted to know he had an Asian wife. I want to say this was one of the first times I actually noticed interracial marriages - weird I know.

3) Kimora Lee and Djimon Hounsou (married) - Good wholesome family every time I see them together. Also love the fact that she's still friends with her ex-husband, Russell Simmons. They really show how divorce and re-marriage can work with new spouses. Plus have you seen Kimora lately? Hot tamale, she really kicked her body into gear after that baby. It looks like Kimora is happy and not worried about being fabulous all the time with Djimon - does that mean no gold toilets?

4) Karrueche Tran and Chris Brown (dating/dated?) - Whether Chris Brown had a terrible past with Rihanna, is still hooking up with Rihanna, or dating Karrueche <--in no exact order lol.. I'm still head over heels to know that Chris Brown is dating/has dated a half-Vietnamese girl (for obvious reasons), but also because they're so cute together! Yes, I Youtube stalked them to see if they were really dating when I first heard, and I approve. (I know I'll probably get people who will say that I'm stupid since he was abusive, but if he truly meant he was sorry and has learned from his mistakes, he has probably grown up from that).

Man, when I tell you I was pulling teeth trying to find celebrity Asian couples that I liked, I meant it. I found an interesting article on why you may see less celebrity Asian couples in the U.S. in general, so imagine the difficulty of finding celebrity Asian IR couples. It came from a blog called "the Fighting 44s." Looks like the blog retired, but still has good reads.

I've got the list below if you don't feel like reading, but you're gonna have to read the article if you want full reasoning:
1. Lack of Asian American celebrities.
2. Lack of Asian American male celebrities.
3. Privacy.
4. Asian Americans aren’t as scandalous (yet, anyway).

Let me know what you think..What are your top faves? Doesn't have to be Asian interracial couples - it can be whatever you like, and be nice. :)

Me also, but we would look better. On the red carpet.

Black women are very unique and, they are an extremely different breed of
women. There are many stereotypes related to black girls and,
you will discover the girls very interesting. Black women have
a dark skin and, they are understood for their
nature of being aggressive. It is very fascinating how black ladies have the tendency
to stimulate interest and debate. The girls can be found in all parts of
the world and, the most popular black ladies are African Americans.
African ladies are understood to be really calm and modest.
It often ends up being really hard to tell the women apart physically due
to the fact that they have similar features. African American girls are
children of previous servants who were generated from Africa, several years earlier.
They have a really long history of battle and final triumph.
The black community in America has actually
needed to battle many battles just to be heard.

Are you cheating on me?

Me too! I hope Chris keeps it together and continues to date her, he's less likely to be in trouble it seems being with Karrueche. Rihanna and Chris had a good run, but their love was poison - too much of a "sex, drugs and alcohol" lifestyle.

I liked Gabriel and Halle Berry! Seal and Heidi. We can't forget them :(

Yeah I liked Gabriel and Halle too!

How about former basketball player turned politician, Kevin Johnson and educator Michelle Rhee! Now that's a real power couple!!!


Kola Boof, one of the women rumored to be Osama Bin Laden's mistresses is making claims that she is also sleeping with Djimon Hounsou, husband of Kimora Lee, and get this -- she says Kimora knows ALL about it and there's nothing she can do to stop it!

"Oh wait...Djimon Hounsou (in a round about way) told me that I was TOO DARK. But he fucked me many times after Kimora had baby" Kola said in the midst of a Twitter rant yesterday, "Yeah....I fuck that bitch husband more than she do. And she know it & don't say shit about it. She accepts it."

Kola goes on to make claims that she's still having sex with Djimon on occasion, drops a list of hotels she's met him at and taunts Kimora several times via her twitter page. She makes claims that Djimon was her man first and that she even slept with him while Kimora was in labor. "He was my man...FIRST. So how do you know what "disrespect" was shown to me??? Maybe I was PAYING BACK the disrespect. And I STILL do. Fuck that trifling Ugly Hog ass Bitch."

Yikes from what I read she seems like a psycho..allegations and miscommunication.

ewwwwwno way!

I think we're missing the point here: Why did she even have a baby sehwor? What on earth could she possibly need? I would have rather heard about her having a sehwor after the birth, because then at least the point would be to show off the new baby.

All have have to say is ???? Sorry not sure what who you're referring to..and what is a sehwor??shower?

I used to find it really odd that ploepe would tell me "Oh, I had a friend who was Asian, but she was Korean" or whatever it was. But as you say, they are just trying to relate to you, to identify somehow with you, and though it's a bit ignorant of a person to do so through these means, don't you think a little slack could be cut because they are well-meaning? Perhaps a gentle comment of some sort indicating that it is unnecessary for them to use this particular means of identifying with you might work. Honestly, if you figure it out, please let me know, because I am often just gobsmacked by ploepe's ignorance - not malicious by any means, but ignorant nonetheless - and have no idea how to make it clear that while I am not upset or offended, their words are not acceptable (such as comments about their own "chinky eyes" - a very common occurrence in the past few months; I actually have large, round eyes). Thanks for the post... food for thought, for sure.

"Oh, I had a friend who was Asian, but she was Korean"

i am truly very confused what a person is trying to mean when he/she says something like that. That is very weird. I find I deal with ignorance too. I know they don't mean any ill intent by being ignorant, but it's still like, really? you think that? kind of reaction on my part.

It definitely does bother me people still use the word "chinky" like it's an appropriate word to describe an asian person. I'm in med school, but I can say the school I'm in has very few asians in it. I'm one of the asians. And I found it both humorous and kind of wtf when numerous people in my class called pomegranates as "chinese apples". And then one of my classmates on another day actually said "chinese people are ____" She did not use a derogatory term, but she was basically saying chinese people are known to do ____ like it was a fact.

I dunno what to tell you. When I'm faced with these kinds of problems, I usually dont say anything because I too don't know how to stand up to it. I don't want to come off as angry and mean, but i honestly doubt if i said anything that it would change their opinion...

I can name other asian interracial couples! Josh Holloway from the abc show Lost. He married his girlfriend, Yessica Kumala, who is a native of Indonesia. they have a daughter together. =] Then there's also Coco Lee, a Hong Kong born singer who married Bruce Philip Rockowitz, a Jewish-Candian businessman. I don't think they have children yet.

And also don't forget Maya Soetoro, President Obama's half sister (they have the same mother, obviously). Maya's father was Indonesian, and she married a chinese candian named Konrad Ng (they have two daughters together).

In the UK, there's ex-tabloid News of the World owner Rupert Murdoch and his wife Wendi Deng. Lol, i also am remembering Miss "Tiger Mom" Amy Chua and her jewish husband, Jen Rubenfeld (2 daughters, if I remember correctly).

There was also American football player Tiki Barber and his now ex wife Ginny Cha (two boys, and last I heard she was pregnant with twin daughters). Tiki also has a twin brother, and he also married an asian woman.

One last couple I'll mention is Gotham Chopra, son of Deepak Chopra. Gotham is indian, and his wife Candice is chinese. They have at least one child together ... I can't remember if the baby was a boy or girl. Well, that's it from me lol =D

My favorite couple is ex-tabloid News of the World owner Rupert Murdoch and his wife Wendi Deng! What a perfect match! There is also Florence Sloan and her husband the MGM mogul--Don't forget that! Another match made in Heaven. :)

It's obvious the writer wen't out of her way to name only asian-female/non-asian male couples as her "favorite" asian IR couples. If Chris Brown and Tran really were one of your "favorite IR asian couples, than why the so unsure about their relationship status??

I noted them as one of my favorite couples, whether they last or not I do not know. I simply like them being together. And those are my favorite couples black/asian - doesn't matter which gender combination.

Herbysan and Melissa Lee !! Woot woot!
