I had taken a break from film to star on Broadway when a respected actor friend, Seth Gilliam, recommended me for this indie film to be produced by Baby Face’s film company ‘Edmonds Entertainment’.

The script was hysterical, I didn’t mind that the characters had alternative lifestyles following my previous role as Sally in Con Air.  I thought it had meaning and the cast was terrific.

I had a really fun time making this, it was like a party that wouldn’t stop LOL.
