Vanity/Mani connection?

[NOTE TO ALL: No Vanity/Mani bashing, posts will be snipped/removed.

Stay on topic. Any posts that are off topic, derailing thread etc will be snipped or posts removed.


Anyone not following the above will be dealt with. You want to talk smack then go somewhere else on the net - luv4u]


**************



I have to come out of lurk mode to ask you guys about a conversation I had in one of my Facebook Prince goups. Mind you.....I'm just repeating what someone said and asking if anyone here can verify????

This chic on Facebook said she met Vanity in the audience at a Prince concert during the lovesexy era. She said Vanity made a comment about no one being able to replace her and then left the area and eventually ended up on stage sitting on a speaker with Cat glaring at her and Prince playfully smirking at her. Here's the part that she swears to but I had never heard before.......This chic swears that P was seeing Vanity after he was married to Mayte and that Mani was the contact person between P and Vanity? Has anyone heard such a thing?????

^^LMAO @ Mani being the contact person between P and Vanity. Nah, Mani wanted P all for herself lol she had a plan and sticked to it, there's no place for another woman.

Prince and Vanity kept in some form of contact until around 2012.

Some Mani fan is giving you the business. There was no reason for her to be a go between for Denise and Prince. None.

Yes to the highlighted. And he didn't need Mani for that.

I know both ex-wives acknowleged Vanity's passing.....here is what Mani wrote....

Manuela Testolini on FB
February 15 at 5:55pm ·
Just heard about Vanity. Shocked and saddened. I had a few interactions with her and she was always sweet. Always trying to do better and be better. She even offered to help with my charity. I'm sorry for her family and her congregation. RIP my fellow Canadian xoxo

Yes. Denise left her brother in law a box of her things, and included was some of her writings amoung other things. He has filled in several blanks for us.


I have no doubt that Prince and Vanity was together during his marriage to Mayte, and more then likely during his marriage to Mani.


I don't think Prince could get her out of his system, nor could Vanity get Prince out of hers.

I would totally believe this. In fact Manuela worked for Prince before she became his main girl. This could have been something he asked her to do when she first started working for him. Who knows. I do believe Prince and Denise were on again off again for many years.

I do believe there was contact. I believe there was a deep connection between them. There was a lot of love and respect. I just really can't see it being romantic in any way.

Oh. I haven't read his reports. Did he shared her writings as documentation?

He has shared some of what she wrote, although I don't believe any pictures of documentation. He is a very kind and interesting fellow, writer, poet. Look up his name Toban and read some of his posts. He still pops in from time to time.

I will definitely look it up. Just a thought: If his claims are true, do you think Denise would want her clandestine dealings with Prince revealed, especially if she was having an extramarital affair with him? Also, is Toban working on a book about Denise (aka Vanity)?

I am sure Prince would reach out to Vanity when her ex became a convicted serial killer. Hallmark doesn’t make a card for that.
