I saw her on Broadway when she took over the matriarch role in August Osage County. I have no desire to ever see the play again or see the movie, because it would ruin my memory of her wonderful performance. I thought she was extraordinary.
Condola turned out to be a good actress.
Never thought much of her as Claire, I mean she was fine until that sixth season when she seemed to be in a bad mood every episode - called Rudy's friends "raggedy" and of course, the explosive episode with Vanessa and The Wretched.
Ayers-Allen may have been as capable as Rashad, but she was never as GRAHHHND.
What a FOOLISH question for you to have asked, OP.
I pity your EXTREME lack of intellect, and general crassness.
We don't think about those things.
She wanted fame, but fame costs!
She had to fight Ellen Holly for Al Freeman Jr. on OLTL
OP, your answer lies within the declaration of theatuh
That photo OP posted reminds me of how Phyl used to saunter around the set buck nekkid.
I have a friend who worked backstage at Dreamgirls for the entire run and said Phylicia was the best Deena Jones, period. When she didn't get the role after Ralph left, she quit and God bless her for having the balls to do so.
Has Victor Willis ever commented on his ex wife?
Is the story about her quitting Dreamgirls accurate? I thought she left long before Sheryl Lee left. Did she quit after they brought the LA Deena in for Sheryl Lee's vacation?
I like how she pronounces theater as "Thee - ah - TAH!"
me too r23
Still so close, yet Ayers-Allen seems to be the odds on favorite.
