Just started watching this show and I must say…it’s a nice change from what you have been used to getting on BET.
Gabrielle Union is really a very talented young lady and I’ve been a fan for years. I’m very happy for her. I honestly believe with the right part; this young woman could win an Oscar. I like her natural ability–she’s very comfortable on screen and would you believe that she once felt that being dark-skinned was a hindrance. Yes. Believe it or not, Gabrielle Union–as beautiful as she is…actually felt self-conscious about her complexion. I remember reading the article in 2010.

Yup. Gabrielle had issues as is reflected in the speech overview she gave at that luncheon. Link: http://sides2truth.com/2013/06/24/the-re-up-i-saw-dark-girls-how-gabrielle-union-proved-its-point/
It moved everyone in attendance.

I’m happy Gabrielle has grown up and I urge her to continue her growth.
Here’s an episode from her hit show Being Mary Jane from season 1. )
