"I’m dating. The thing is is that I’m done — I can’t say that I’m done totally with American men, but I’m very excited about my finds over... [Wendy: In Europe where the Counts are?] You know what it is? I think there’s a cultural difference with men from other countries. They are not as bitter and jaded and closed up as a lot of the men here. I’m not saying all men. I can’t say that I’m done with American men. I’ll never say that."
Somehow, viewers took that to only be directed at Black men. In a later interview with Hip Hollywood, Henson revisited her comments to clear up any misunderstanding. "I was misquoted. [The media] said I was done with Black men," she said. "I have a Black son, what are you saying, what does that mean?"
"I said that I have started dating other cultures, so it was a celebration of other cultures and not a put down of my own. That's stupid. Why would I say I'm done with Black men. That's dumb. [...] Broaden your spectrum."
