Shemar Moore is a very talented and seasoned actor who's been linked to some very high profile ladies in the industry. When BET asked him about two in particular, Toni Braxton and Halle Berry, Moore opened up and expressed how one was "a wild ride" and the other was "a necessary experience".BET interviewed Shemar as he was wrapping up the eighth season of Criminal Minds:

When asked about Toni and Halle, Moore stated:

"Toni Braxton was my first Hollywood relationship. I was a baby, I did not know s***. I had just graduated from college, I had no money and I was on Young and the Restless. She called my agent when she was shooting a video in Miami, and it just went from there. I was like the little kid who found the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. It was a wild ride with Toni. She would never sing for me, though. That always bothered me."

 

When asked about Halle, Moore stated:

"She was the first woman to really knock my socks off. I fell hard for Halle. A lot of people now know we dated, but we had to keep it hush-hush at the time because she was fresh off her divorce from David Justice. I'm still grateful for that relationship. I was smitten not just because of who she was, but because we were so similar in so many ways. She was biracial, she was kind of going through the same things I was in Hollywood. Toni was a fun ride, but Halle was a necessary experience. It made me much stronger as a man, and knowing the caliber of woman I want in the future."

They also asked Shemar what he thought about Halle's current life and relationship:

"No, none at all. She's a tough cookie. I'm glad she's got a family now. If this love she's got with this guy is real, then that's what she needs."
