5 Things: Roland Martin

Roland Martin, the host of NewsOne Now spills on old-school punishment, Vanity and sharing whips.

1. CLASSIC HITS

Good Times is one of Martin’s must-see ’70s sitcoms for one simple reason: “James whipping the kids’ behinds,” he offers. “That was like my dad. I was very familiar with the discipline style in the Evan’s household.”

2. YOUR BEAUTY, NOT YOUR…

“When I first met my wife I thought she was stuffy,” reflects the proud husband. “One day I saw her at a party and she had on the right pair of pants…I think God was trying to give me every signal possible. Then He finally said, ‘Show him the butt.'”

3. OFF THE MENU

“My favorite soul food spot is Sweet Georgia Brown in Dallas,” shares the 45-year-old Texan. “The cuisine is absolutely tasty and they also have huge pork chops.”
