“I have learned to deal with three failed marriages, which has not been easy, especially when there’s children involved,” Berry told the audience, according to Entertainment Tonight. “As women, we go into marriage thinking it’s going to last forever and that this is our prince on a shiny horse.

But Berry did say she learned a lot from each of the heartbreaks. “In every one of those situations, as hard — and sometimes embarrassing — as it was, I learned so much about myself,” she confessed. “All of those relationships were necessary for me.

It’s been a difficult part of my life.”
