Ms Drama: Generally speaking, I gained a better work ethic. I learned the importance of being persistent and consistent and setting goals – and working to accomplish them.
Capp The GodMother: In 2013 you premiered on Vh1’s “The Gossip” game. I watched faithfully. I will never forget that you coined the phrase “El Ratcheto” and “Hood to hood and Block to Block” What were your biggest challenges on that show?
Ms Drama : As a positive-minded individual it was challenging dealing with ignorance and aggressive individuals. It was challenging to pretend that we were put in “real” situations, when the situations/scenes were more or less contrived by a producer to cause a reaction. It was a challenge to not just walk away or disassociate myself from the foolery, as I would do in real life. I would have never entertained some the conversations that I did – unless on that show. It was challenging to literally not read most of those women for filth.
Capp The GodMother: Do you feel being on “The Gossip Game” help expand your brand?
