I was never married to Lanre Falana- Nollywood Actress Stephanie Nora Okereke

The newly elected Vice President, Screenwriters Guild of Nigeria who has not been on the spotlight lately, talked about her failed marriage, romance with Jim Iyke in an interview with vanguard newspaper.


When the Imo state born actress was asked about her disappearance from the limelight she said 
 I have been everywhere. I only reduced the numbers of films I featured in and concentrated more on soap operas. And that was for two years. I have also been working on my talk show that would soon hit television screen.
When asked if she still has a crush on Jim Iyke she answered "I don’t hate him.
 When asked about her failed marriage to Lanre Falana she answered  
 I was never married but I was involved in a marriage process which got truncated along the line. Marriage begins with paying the woman’s dowry, traditional and white wedding. All these did not take place. My family didn’t support marrying a man who kept one woman in one place and plans keeping another one in another place. I attend Catholic Church and the marriage process in Catholic, begins with the intended couples tendering a marriage certificate issued by a court to the church. This was the main reason we were in court in the first place. That is because I am not a party to pretence. That marriage would have made me a sad woman. I have learnt not to judge a book by its cover.
When asked if she has plans to marry again she answered 
It has not been easy. You hardly can differentiate between a man who truly wants you as a woman because he feels for you , or one who wants to be seen with a known actress. Some men can go as far as taking a bet over you because you are a known actress. But when a good man comes around, I will settle with him. However, my Bible has not told me I can not make heaven as a single woman.
