Flex Alexander opens up about past eviction from LA home

Flex Alexander — who starred in hit UPN sitcoms “Girlfriends” and “One on One,” and is married to singer Shanice — recalled to Page Six how the Hollywood couple was evicted from their LA home in 2010, with their kids, when they hit hard times.

“It was a real estate crash. We bought a lot of property so the hard times came along and I continued to try to hold onto that property and pull from savings,” he said. “Real estate was a great way to attain wealth and it was something I wanted to pass down to our family and our kids. So I tried to hold on — but I should have just jumped ship early.”

He and his wife have opened up about their financial struggles on their OWN reality show “Flex & Shanice,” which ended in 2016, but Alexander says he doesn’t regret going public with their story of bankruptcy.

“I never had regrets. I am from the projects in the South Bronx and that type of stuff don’t faze me,” the 50-year-old said.

These days, their careers are back on track, and he’s also been DJ’ing on Zoom. There’ll also be a “One on One” holiday marathon in December.
