Below you'll find several excerpts I pulled from her essence.
She is truly funny! Well, how much are you in tune with your on-screen alter ego, Rochelle? Rochelle's my grandmother, mother and aunt all rolled into one, so I relate to her in so many ways. She's independent, stubborn and yet, through all of that, she still loves and cares for her family in her own special way. We have a good show and a good group of people and I think that translates to every race, gender and religious background.
Everyone can relate to the show on some level. We talking about your acting chops, but let's talk a bit about your parenting skills. How has motherhood changed your thinking? It's so funny after having Alijah, who's 3 going on 30, I said to myself, I'm a grown-ass woman, I don't have time for any kind of foolishness, it's all about her and my career.
Chileshe's into dancing and just joined Debbie Allen's Academy for dance and Debbie loves her. My daughter is definitely going to be in the arts and surpass anything I ever achieved. Laughs She asked me the other day, 'Mom can I say ass? I'm like, 'No you can't sing it, hum it, think it or speak it. So do you still keep in touch with Martin Lawrence? Yes, I still keep in touch with Martin.
I haven't talked to him for a minute. I talk to his family. Did you ever feel trapped in the middle of that past drama?

Honestly, Tisha and Martin never put me in it. They did a great job of leaving it amongst themselves. Although it broke up a family because the entire cast—we were all very close. It was something that happened and we dealt with it, but it's long been squashed. Are you living single now or do you have a beau? Laughs I'm seeing someone, but I ain't sayin' who.
I have so much respect for any man I date. I'm not going to drag him into the spotlight. You will never see me on the red carpet with anyone I'm dating.
I see the red carpet as work and I don't bring my men to work. In fact, if you want to keep a relationship in Hollywood your best bet is not to appear on the red carpet together! So does that mean you and singer Norwood Young, are not an item? Hell to the naw. Norwood and I are good friends. The night of Tish and Duane's premiere for Seat Filler they invited him to go as well. He does not like being in crowds by himself and he asked if I would go with him.
That's how that happened and everyone started saying, That's Tichina's new man. A few Black actresses criticized the Black female bloggers regarding the comments and rumors they've made about them.
Do you explore the blogosphere and read what they're saying about you? Yes, I love them! I think they are hilarious especially concreteloop. I really don't get offended by what they say. I remember one time I went to this event and I thought I was decked out.
I think my stylist was unavailable and I dressed myself, I can't remember, but you couldn't tell me I wasn't looking good and they said something like, 'We love Tichina, but she looks like Boy George! Another blog said I had chest hairs and I'm like, They trippin'! I look good and I don't have no damn chest hairs laughs! But it's only when the comments gets vicious that I can understand where folks are coming from about the negativity and hate, but I just don't take myself that seriously.
I love reading the blogs! You've also been under the same fire as Tisha and Duane regarding your sexuality. There have been silly rumors that you left your first husband for MC Lyte and dated her for a few years before hooking up with your daughter's father. Laughs No, not at all. You know you're not famous until someone accuses you of being gay. I know a lot of people in Hollywood so I can see them making up stuff like that.
It doesn't bother me. I pay it no attention. Why do you think it is that everyone is so fascinated with what celebs are doing in their bedrooms? Because it comes with the territory. It's our responsibility as public figures to be cognizant of how we're being seen.
