Christina Johnson is one of the rare Atlanta Exes that has a great relationship with her ex-husband CeeLo Green – one might even say the ‘exes’ get along too well. So well that it’s sometimes as if they never broke up! In fact CeeLo even advises Christina on dating.
Christina is now dating Willie Wallace, whom she met through Sheree Buchanan, and says that Willie not only respects the relationship she has with her ex, but everyone gets along great and she is completely over being Mrs. ‘Lo! She also discusses the Tameka Raymond issue and if she feels Atlanta Exes accurately portrayed her and her life. Christina also reveals she is launching a makeup line called Butterfly EFX with Hollywood Exes star Drea Kelly!
Let’s start with the good stuff – her love life! “Yea I’m really happy,” Christina shares. “I’m so grateful to Sheree for setting us up.”

“It feels like it’s been forever,” Christina gushes about finding true love Willie. “People used to tell me all the time, other women who were married to celebrities, ‘You’ll just know when you know.’ Cause I’m like, ‘Gosh, when am I ever going to move forward and get over ‘Lo? When am I going to be able to move on? I meet people but this isn’t it.’ And they’re always like, ‘You’ll know when you know.’”
“So with Willie, I just kind of knew. I mean, we were comfortable with each other. I can be 100% of who I am around him.’ I could just be Christina and I wanted that,” she shares with VH1. “You don’t want to have to be faking it with anybody or making yourself out to be something that you’re not. It just felt like home to me. And everything that I do, he’s so supportive. We support each other in everything.”
Among Willie’s positives is that he gets along great with Christina and CeeLo’s two children – and he’s also great with her famous ex-husband – which is one of the many things Christina adores about her new man.
“I think that’s one of the other reasons that I kind of knew Willie was the one – because he wasn’t threatened by it. He’s very very understanding of it. We’re very open and honest with each other and everything. I think he just wanted to make sure that I wasn’t still in love with him,” Christina explains. “I let him know that wasn’t the case, we moved forward.”
“CeeLo is going to meet Willie for the first time this weekend,” Christina reveals. “I think they’ll end up being cool as far as Willie being in our children’s lives and us being together.”
“Today we were on the phone for two and a half hours. Good gracious. And I remember we talked a little bit about Willie’s relationship with King and he said he was fine with it. He’s like ‘I know my son and he’s not going to just go follow anybody that he’s not comfortable with. So if he’s comfortable with him, then I accept it.’” Christina does share that cameras will not be present for the big CeeLo/Willie meeting! Dang.
Moving on, Christina is ready to talk all things Atlanta Exes and unlike some of her co-stars, she thinks she was accurately represented on the show. “I just feel like this was the greatest project to be a part of just because I’m able to be 100 percent of myself,” Christina praises. “You can’t ask for more than that, especially when it’s reality television.”
Unlike Tameka, Christina says she was always prepared to be shown by what she gave the cameras. “I feel like I kind of came into the project with the idea of, ‘If you don’t say it, they can’t play it,’ And just didn’t say anything that I would regret or be ashamed of. I was 100% myself and I feel like even with the edits, it represents who I am. I mean it’s true to life, that what you see is pretty much Christina 100 percent.”
Which means, if there is a season 2 (which judging by ratings, I am positive there will be!) Christina is on board! “I can’t wait until they call us. I just feel like so many people are being moved. And even though we have our bouts, we’re a sisterhood. So I hope we get to do a season 2. I really do.”
But does Christina hope that Tameka will be part of any subsequent seasons?
