“The best revenge is no revenge, go ahead. Be happy,” read a quote the “Best Man” actress shared on her Instagram on Saturday.
Long, 52, was showered with praise from several stars in the comments section of her post.

“Amen. Bitter or better ✨,” added Tanya Sam, a graduate of “Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
Singer Keyshia Cole commented “Facts❤️” while “Real Housewives of Potomac” star Mia Thornton wrote “Queenin”.
Long’s post comes days after Udoka, 45, was named head coach of the Houston Rockets after he left the Boston Celtics last year for violating the team’s code of conduct by having a close and consensual relationship with a female member of the Celtics team. .

I’m sorry to put the team in this difficult situation and I accept the team’s decision. Out of respect for everyone involved, I will not comment further,” he said last September.
That December, a rep confirmed to People that Long told them she broke up with Udoka after dating for more than 12 years.
“The situation is unfortunate and painful, but Nia is focusing on her children and rebuilding her life,” a source said.
The “Fatal Incident” actress also talked about how “devastated” their 11-year-old son, Kez, was after their father’s relationship became public.
“There are still moments when it’s not easy for him,” she told The Hollywood Reporter at the time.
“The most heartbreaking thing about all this was seeing my son’s face when the Boston Celtics organization decided to make a very special situation public.”
Long and Udoka started dating in 2010 and got engaged in 2015.
The “You People” actress is also the mother of her 22-year-old son Massai, whom she co-parents with actor Massai Dorsey.
