Iyanla Vanzant has interviewed dozens of celebrities who have had personal woes play out publicly. But the Fix My Life host’s recent interview with Karrueche Tran about her troubled relationship with Chris Brown, seemed to garner a large amount of attention.
“Karrueche was a demonstration of so many young women, just like me, who make mistakes in relationships,” Vanzant told HipHollywood while at the premiere of BEING. “I really just wanted to talk to her about some of the pit falls because nobody has done that publicly. We look back and we say ‘this happened’ and ‘that happened,’ but nobody has asked, ‘what did you do? What did you do, how did you participate that this is the story you’re telling today?'”
And although Vanzant’s motive was to help the fashion designer, Tran revealed last week while on Big Boy’s morning show that she actually felt uncomfortable during the taping. “I think she’s great at what she does, she’s very inspirational and motivational, but I think her approach is a little different than how other people interview … Honestly it was a little uncomfortable the way the interview was going and there was a little bit of a break during the interview.”
Tran and Brown broke up back in March after news surfaced that he fathered a 9-month-old baby girl.
Tracee Ellis Ross Spills The Real Tea On ‘Black-ish’ Wage Demands + Deon Cole, Jenifer Lewis Weigh In
Tracee Ellis Ross is unveiling the truth behind recent reports that she was demanding more money for her time spent on ABC’s Black-ish.
Just last week, The Hollywood Reporter suggested Tracy was in negotiations and asking for more for not only going into her fourth season on the hit show, but because her male co-host, Anthony Anderson, makes significantly more than she does.
The report also claimed that if she didn’t make any headway, she might step away and consider guest starring on other shows.
Over the weekend, Ellis addressed the reports and didn’t exactly deny the claims. In a lengthy statement shared on social media, Ross said that she “was in renegotiation, like many actors find themselves in during the fourth season of a successful show.”
She continued, “I wanted to be compensated in a way that matches my contribution to a show that I love for many reasons, including the opportunity it allows me to reshape what it is to be a fully realized black woman on TV.”
She did, however, confirm that claims there were threats are false. “I wish I could have been called by the reporter to confirm that,” she wrote.
Tracy’s statement falls right in line with what her co-stars, Deon Cole and Jenifer Lewis, explained to HipHollywood on Sunday night during the 2018 SAG Awards.
When asked about Ross’ desire to earn more money, Lewis said, “Tracee should have more money, you should have more money, every woman should have more money because we’ve been in the background too long. ”
Television’s favorite mom continued, “We’ve got grab her by the pussy in the White House and women are not standing for it anymore. Black-ish is a very important show, we are dealing with all the pressing issues of our time … This is the time to look it in the face and address it and come through the fire. Women are not taking it anymore.”
Deon also shut down rumors that Ross would be taking a back seat, telling us “There’s two sides to every story. Tracee is fine, everybody is fine, and everybody is getting paid. Everybody is eating. It’s all love I promise you.”
