And that's understandable. She just finished back-to-back late nights (wee hours in the morning) of shooting final scenes of the 6th season of BET's The Game, returned home to Los Angeles to spend the holidays with her husband, and this was supposed to be her day off. But we have to talk: About her character and alter ego, the fiery “Tasha Mack-alicious,” frenemies in the sportsworld lifestyle, her commitment to children and the arts, and, of course, about her beauty and hair tips.
AMBERmag.com: What is going on with Tasha Mack this season?
WR: Baby, she is going through some changes; a lot of self discovery that opens up some self realization of who she is and finally accepting that. Tasha has been looking for love in all the wrong places and this season we will discover why as we go back to her roots and see how her childhood and becoming a teen mother shaped her. There are some peaks and valleys. We’ll be unraveling and getting to that scared little girl on the inside to that lion on the outside. Because we all know that if you ain’t right wherever you’re looking for love it will be wrong.
AMBERmag.com: How does the show open up?
WR: Malik’s character is dealing with his girlfriend (played by Tika Sumpter) getting out of rehab but not being completely rehabilitated, and those demons are following her. She’s trying to latch onto him (and him her). We’re dealing with his set of issues and I guess it’s the choice he needs to make because I’ve given up Derwin as a client and I’ve chosen to take him on and his stuff isn’t together. Melanie and I are in the outs and I’ve cut off all ties with her. But I don’t want to have egg on my face of having to deal with the negative consequences of choosing family first.
