On her new role on BET’s ‘The Game’:
How cool is that? I’ve never done that before, I’ve done guest spots on TV but for me to have that schedule is so different and new. I’m excited. I get to learn a lot about myself in this experience.
On how she maintains her faith in Hollywood:
I’m more of like a spiritual person. [I] have normal friends. They don’t read blogs. They don’t care. There is always a rumor that I’m dating someone that I never met before and people have their judgements or ideas of who I am and they know nothing.
On if she’s dating Trey Songz:
We’re not together. No, we just took a picture together. [Those rumors] don’t upset me because I know him, he’s a great guy but no I laugh at that. Me and my brother were walking down the street one day and they said I was dating my brother and I was like, ‘That’s funny’.
On gal pal Victoria Beckham:
“Victoria is so funny! And I have such appreciation for her style.”
On what clothing she’s been wearing most often:
“A lot of Victoria Beckham. Her sheath dresses. They’re just so easy.”
On life after ‘Desperate Housewives’:
“I miss the consistency of going to work. Same people, same routine.”
On the difference between shooting a movie compared to a TV show:
“On a television show, you basically make a movie a week. Movies take three months—it’s crazy. They’re so slow, it’s like vacation to me.”
She’s been studying the Constitution as well, both for herself but also as a way for her, as a Democrat, to comprehend the Right.
