Selling Sunset star Amanza Smith is opening up about her secret boyfriend of two years. Amanza was previously married to Ralph Brown, with whom she has two children. Ralph abandoned their family and went missing. This led the designer to file for sole custody as she raises their kids on her own.
While Amanza has opened up about the difficult situation with her former NFL player ex-husband on the show, she’s remained mum on her dating life. Season 5 of the real estate series focused a lot on the cast’s romantic relationships. Chrishell Stause, Emma Hernan, and Vanessa Villela’s dating lives took center stage, but not Amanza’s. At the reunion, which she attended virtually due to COVID, host Tan France asked about the rumors Amanza dated Zac Efron. While she debunked that, she didn’t share more about her current man. Now, Amanza is spilling more details and revealing if they will ever go public.
Amanza opened up about her current beau in an interview with People. The stager revealed that they decided to keep their relationship private early on. This includes keeping it off of her social media, which the 45-year-old called a “slippery slope.” Reflecting on how many people post couple photos on social media when they’re actually unhappy, she went on to say she wants the boyfriend reveal to be authentic. As for when that happens, the real estate agent shared, “I want to make sure that when we go public that we’re so 100% sure that nobody can affect the energy of that.” After her marriage to Ralph, Amanza publicly dated Taye Diggs, who appeared on Selling Sunset season 1.
The single mom revealed that her boyfriend is also a parent and is “amazing” with her two young children. “He’s just an amazing human,” Amanza gushed, adding, “Hopefully, one day I will feel comfortable to share with the world, but for now, I like having him private. It’s really the only thing in my life that people don’t know about fully.” She did share, though, that people have taken photos of them together. She also added that fans and followers try to suss out hints at his identity. However, no one has guessed correctly yet, which she finds surprising.
Amanza did share that all her friends know who her love is. Her boss, brokerage owner Jason Oppenheim, wants Amanza’s boyfriend on Selling Sunset. However, Amanza did not reveal whether or not her beau will appear on her reality show. She did share that she’s focusing on the positive reactions from the series’ fans. She told People, “I have a lot of fans that want to see me succeed because they’re rooting for me.” But she also added, “I have just as many people that silently hope that I fail. I don’t want to give anybody any reason to rain on my parade because I’m really happy.”
Fans of the real estate series have watched Amanza struggle with her ex-husband’s disappearance. She’s juggled being the sole provider and the only parent and moved into real estate to earn more money for her kids. This past season, Amanza had to deal with Christine Quinn’s drama, after previously being one of her few allies. Most viewers are surely thrilled to hear how happy the Netflix star is, even if he beau never appears on the show.
