Robin Givens's man couldn't be American. She had to get a foreign dude. If she can (allegedly) take a punch from Mike Tyson and she, her mom AND Don King take his money, what black guy (hell, what AMERICAN guy of any race) would want to get with her after her divorce? That's Robin's mail order husband.
