Coining soon-to be classic phrases like ‘catch fire’ and ‘shady boots’, this southern bred diva proves there is more than meets the eye.
Recently, the Memphis native sat down with media partner theJasmineBrand.com, dishing on the REAL reason she opted for reality TV, what her least proud moments on the show thus far, comparisons to Tamar Braxton and her BFF, Mariah Huq.
Peep excerpts from the interview below.
On the real motivation behind reality TV:
For me, I just looked at the greater platform it would give me. Ultimately I would like to be an actress, to get into some scripted writing – not off the cuff reality, scripted. So I saw this as a stepping stone as possibly getting me there and then opening up many different avenues for entrepreneurship, writing my book – I’m currently writing my book, which is going to be hilarious.
On if she feels famous yet:
You know it’s so weird, I’m still Quad. It’s really funny that you say that. I had this girl, I know she was every bit of 26 or 27 and she was literally in tears crying like ‘oh my God, oh my God’ and I was like ‘What’s wrong? Are you okay?’ and I was like is Michael Jackson behind me, or is Oprah behind me? Because at some point I have to turn around and start crying too. And it was me.
On why she’s so proud of her best friend, Mariah:
I’m gonna say this. I get emotional because I know it’s hard. It’s hard for us overall. But a black female. You see that. So I’m really happy that God blessed her with the vision and she in turn blessed me with the opportunity.
On how her husband feels about the show:
Initially when we got in this, he had some reservations. He really did. But as we talked about it and talked things through and came to an agreement, ever since then he’s been totally supportive. And I really appreciate that.
On Being Compared To Tamar Braxton:
You know, there might be some similarities but we’re still really different people. I love her personality. Give me someone who’s over the top. And I will live for them. I see sometimes where she’s kinda loud and I would say I’m loud too. But I see her heart. She has a really great heart. She’s a very ambitious woman and she thrives to make her mark in life and I love that. I love to see that.
