Actress and former First lady of Turks & Caicos, LisaRaye was gracious enough to grant Sandrarose.com an exclusive interview with her while she was in town for the Trumpet Awards last weekend.

The interview with LisaRaye took place in her swanky hotel suite at the Hyant Grand Regency in downtown Atlanta. She looked gorgeous in a floor length off white feathered gown custom made for LR by a local L.A. designer (I'll post his name in a minute).

LisaRaye talked candidly about her ex-husband, former Premier of Turks & Caicos Michael Misick:

Had my husband... sat down and communicated with me, and said to me 'this is what's going on. I don't know how I got myself into this mess. I need your help, I need your support. Can you help me figure it out'... With my swagger? Because I was married. We were one. So you supposed to be the ride or die.. as the wife, yes, you hear some mess about rape... and it happened in the house... she was a young girl. I'm thinking about my daughter. As your wife, yes, I'm pissed at you! Give me that!

LisaRaye also discussed her daughter's schooling in Europe and why she didn't pay her tuition after Misick pulled his support. She talked about the drama with Vivica A. Fox who was in her wedding:

When you're friends with someone there's stories that you share that I believe that you keep between the two of you no matter what happen. That's your friend and you're supposed to go down to the grave with those stories.

LisaRaye touches on her new reality show, the 'Cougar thing', her foundation, her new book deal and a movie that she's producing.

Parts 2, 3 and 4 after the break!

Special shout out to J. Peak, Sr. PR of Peakpublicity for making it happen! Thanks to Nokey XL of CTE for hooking up the video!

    Sandra-
    She didn't answer the question about her daughter's schooling and I'm officially not liking Lisa any longer-y cuz she wears white all the time...

  • http://thecubiclechick.com STLVixen

    Looking forward to reading the interview. Hopefully there are some tender morsels of juiciness, not a fluff piece.

    :waiting:

  • mirsmommy

    Next thing you know, she'll be wearing white lipstick and eyeshadow. :sad:

  • missy

    Did you ask Lisa if she feels "players club" is her best acting performance ever..if so did she think she should have been nominated for an oscar or golden club.....

  • http://thecubiclechick.com STLVixen

    Wait why does LisaRaye look a little like Deelishis in this pic? Or is it just me?

  • Al-Ameera

    :rofl: @ Missy...Girl you are insane!

    But I was thinking the same thing, both questions

  • http://chitchatta.com Yadda Yadda

    I didn't see anything in there about that chick from 106 & Park giving the business to her husband. What about how all the people on that island hated her? What about the pinky toe? C'mon Sandra you have GOT to do better!

  • missy

    I also hope you asked Lisa why everyone (Tony Rock) was calling her a biatch and she was the reason "all of us" ended?

    I hope she realized tony rock and elise neal needed those jobs *SMH* selfish..

  • gypsyeyes

    This is how my interview would go with her:

    Me: What the hail kind of feathers are those?

    Deelishis/Lisaraye: Well what had happened was big bird got doused with bleach and when he was on the ground I asked whatever his name was(the designer) if he could do something with those feathers and 'WALA' my evening dress.

  • CorporateHoodB-tch

    Serious Questions:
    Why didn't she take over her father's businesses after he passed away? R.I.P. David Ray McCoy (my parents knew her parents)
    What sparked her to leave her hometown and move to California?
    Did she know anyone in California before she moved there?
    How did she meet Tupac? Did she have to audition for the video?
    Did she always want to be an actress? Or did she just end up doing it because the opportunity presented itself?
    Finally, what's up with the all white? I remember her father drove an all white Benz...but I don't remember him wearing all white...no disrespect

  • gypsyeyes

    Hey Crazy(I like calling you that)- It was OK. Amber and Gary are back together and she said that she coulf be pregnant. Maci and Ryan broke up (Team Maci)I love Bentley. Catelyn and Tyler are still together. Farrah crazy azz is still looking for love. I can see someone giving her her own show one day. It was pretty boring. New season starts next week.

    Soooooo....I haven't been watching Bad Girls that much this season...but I saw that clip on that other site... I didn't know "The Incredible Chin" was such a hoe!!!!!!

    How could she be :hump: with the lights on and the door open...

    DEAD when she prayed to God that the guy had a big penis...

  • CivilEngineer

    @mirs...they're all pretty crazy!! The extra emotional girl with the dark hair takes the cake! She's in love with the gay boy and doesn't wanna admit it...poor baby

    Obviously, I don't learn names. Is Andrew the black guy?

  • gypsyeyes

    that's what the 15 year old says. She'll be like, and guess what that garden tool said.

  • gypsyeyes

    Ty is the black guy!!!

  • crzasallgetout

    Umm Lisa Raye is delusional. Does she REALLY think she's somebody special? She's pole dancing Diamond. That's what she'll be remembered as. And why does she come off as Ghetto everytime I hear her speak. How do the first lady look since they'd never seen one that looked like her? She's full of herself I see.

    ________________________________________________________

    Nah, Andrew is the one that wears the animal hats, and sleeps with a stuffed animal.

    Yes, I forgot her name, but she is extra emotional, and madly in love with that boy. (I can't remember their names either. But she said that she and her mom haven't spoken in over a year. And the last time they spoke, her mom told her she never wanted to see her ugly face again. :sad: Who says that to their own child??? :shrugs:

  • CivilEngineer

    Thanks @gyps...Andrew is the horny white dude that gets no play?

    And don't think I forgot you're supposed to be in the attic. You have 5 min to get up there or the lights will be left on while you and Rhinoman make magic :rofl:

  • crzasallgetout

    @mskay,
    On her husband: If he would've told her from jump then she'd been down with him. SOmething about he has 30k people backing him in Turks and how she has 30k in Southside Chicago alone doing the same.
    On her daughter: It was his idea to send her daughter to school. She(the kid) showed up at her door one day and was hurt. They are now bonding in LA now..code for I can't afford to pay for school.
    Will she marry again: Yes because she wants to be loved BUT he has to be wealthy, wealthy, wealthy, and I think wealthy. haha

    Oh and she said something about how they(his people) have never seen a first lady that looks like her. But she gave Michelle a shout out.

    That's about it. She's ghetto

  • CivilEngineer

    @mirs...I remember her saying she has no family and she wants the house to become her family but calm the hell down. She's constantly mad about something somebody else did...it's hard to want to bond with somebody whose constantly nitpicking everything!

    On the subject of the real world I can't stand that needy girl she needs to get a grip. My mother and I have no relationship what so ever, but geesh I am over it and not looking for love in all the wrong places like she is. Mom mom wished me and my son dead and said she wished she flushed me and my brother down the toilet... She is certified crazy...but I went on and I live my life and do right by my boys..

    She answered the questions without throwing anyone under the bus. Yes, the man is supposed to bring home the bacon and the woman is supposed to cook the bacon for the family.

    Viv betrayed her, I have a best friend who better not ever tell the things she knows about me and I will do the same.

    LisaRay was on All of Us but she made a choice to get married and it appeared to be a better situation for her. She wanted a husband and title.

    LisaRay for future reference don't use the word swag anymore let people say you have swag. How to do it be yourself and tell the truth Please practice speaking in a mirrior or record yourself to playback. You can step up to the next level but it takes work not just a name and pretty face.

    Today's world the more sh*t people know about you the better chance you have to secure a fan base. Below on how to answer the money question.

    I was so upset when my daughter called home and informed me what happened I said baby come on your plane ticket is ready, its not the end of the world. Being involved in that marriage took a toll on my finances. I could not afford the tuition because it was pricey. We all start over sometimes.

    I liked the Lisa Raye interview. IMO, she seems down-to-earth :shrugs:

  • speaknoevil

    I like Lisa Ya'll...i really do :)

  • NubianJ

    Americans Black or White are so judgmental! I like LR even more because she made sense..........throughout all the ghetto mannerisms but she still made sense. She looks damn good and who said you have to sound like a valley girl from cali in order to be considered not ghetto? She still has a little hood in her but so does Michelle Obama. I think we need to stop this crab in a barrel syndrome right now!

  • Candi Apple

    @Lovely One

    I liked the interview and I like her. She has come a long way she needs a better team of people. She needs to be groomed a little she could go past what she has accomplished thus far. Will and Jada may have blackballed her a little. Now she has to show and prove

  • gypsyeyes

    Her interviewing skills suck! Just keeping it real. Listen I for one don't feel like the valley girl thing would have been a good look. But good grammar is vital for any interview. As long as she has been in the game she should have a speech and voice coach.

  • Terry .W

    SANDRA!...is that your voice?..you sound more polite than some of your posts.lol. Nice to put the voice to the person tho!

  • crzasallgetout

    WTH!! How did this become a black and white issue? Both races can be ghetto. LR just seems ghetto in this interview. Michelle may have hood in her but you'd never know it by the way she speaks IN PUBLIC

  • gypsyeyes

    @Crazy-you took the words right out of my mouth. Why does everything go to the race issue. We can't use that for everything. Oh Lord, I ran out of gas.If I wasn't black the gas would have lasted longer.Oh Lord, my pen ran out of ink, if I was white it would have kept on going. Gimme a damn break. If you can't speak you can't speak. This happens to be a blog about black folks so therefore they get the brunt of criticism.

  • KaraZ

    "Had my husband would have sat down"??? Really??? Does this chick have a high school diploma? I hope she didn't pay for it, she needs a refund stat!

  • Al-Ameera

    I like her. She is who she is

  • Al-Ameera

    Ok so after watching the interview, what is so ghetto about her? I think she is very animated and just seems like she is being her. She actually is very well spoken, she has an accent but she is from Chicago, that's how they talk.

  • KaraZ

    Al-Ameera, she was well spoken to you? Sorry she had major problems with conjugating verbs and noun verb agreement, 6th grade grammatical errors. I understand speaking in vernacular, but even then... I think she was trying to sound proper.

    Lisa gets a fail, because this woman was a first lady of a country, why did she not take the time to polish herself? Most people in her position with common sense would have used the opportunity to become more cultured and refined versions of themselves. She sounds like a common girl, not someone who should have someone like Michelle Obama on speed dial.

    Why you trippin Karaz? You missed what's important. She looks better than every other first lady that has ever existed. That's got to put her in the Guinness Book of World Records or something.

    Seriously though she made less of a fool of herself than she usually does. I only had to wince a couple of times. Good job Sandra. You were born for this.

  • KaraZ

    @Bird, my fault, my fault, you right! I mean who really cares if you sound semi-intelligent when you're the best looking one in your mind! Never mind that Carla Bruni Sarkozy was a real model (not just on mall catwalks or in her warped mind) in her former life or that most first ladies are extremely well educated and actually play an active in their husband's administrations by executing their own pet projects to add to the nations they represent. But oh no lisaRaye, Princess of Zamunda, Turks & Caicos chapter, you're the prettiest, adding actual value to your husband is optional for you.

    Dummy

  • Al-Ameera

    @ Karaz. When I say well spoken, no, not like she went to Harvard but for the most part she kept the conversation going. Nothing big but she was just regular and did good for who she is. Dang ya'll she was first lady for all of a year or two and was over here acting and whatnot, how much "polishing" did you expect to go on?

    Comparing her and Michelle O is so not fair. Michelle went to Princeton and Harvard and is a professional woman. Of course she is polished. Lisa raye is a hood chic turned good (for lack of a better way to put it) so putting it in perspective, yes I think she did good.

    Now take her EX who went to the best private schools, has a business degree and a law degree, was a praticing attorney and a politician for years and was soooooo polished and well spoken....He is also a cheater, corrupt as hell, a potential rapist and homosexual. With all his big paper and polishing he is still just another n*gga. At the end of the day that stuff don't mean sh*t!

    Ya'll are way judgemental on here.

  • KaraZ

    So stating what is evident is being judgemental? I'll be that then. She did not do well for who she is, don't give her a pass, she had been out of the hood for years, and let hr tell it she was a princess with grace and class. #FAIL

    LisaRaye has had years of having a moderately high income and if she were interested would have buffed her rough edges up, but she's seems too concerned about her "swagger" (her words) to actually get some actual substance. I don't expect her to speak several world languages or understand all cultures, but dang can she actually get a good command of her first (only) language? Can we actually look at her and hear her and think classy, rather than her having to remind her of her alleged grace and elegance.

    If she was carrying on like this, no wonder NOBODY in Turks & Caicos liked her.

    As for her husband, he's no different that most other politicians worldwide, but he's not the one sitting in the white plumage talking to Sandra.

  • Fionafine

    Adultish?? Maybe she should have taken her daughter's spot at the fancy school.

    @Al-Ameera everything you said... yep, I agree.

    ***********************************

    Actually Lisa brought that up. She basically said, "Michelle is cool and all, but she don't look like me." She's said that time and time again out loud for people to hear. But you are right it is not fair to Mrs. Obama who is also from the south side of Chicago, is a professional educated woman who has been married to the same gorgeous, intelligent uber successful man for many years to be mentioned in the same breath as this superficial hood rat. Yes, I totally agree that was not fair. I for one don't expect dignity and class from this woman.

    With that said, Miss LisaRaye needs to lower her standards. She can't expect to get the same kind of man Michelle can pull. She needs to get herself a wealthy drug dealer like her mama did. It worked for mama and it can work for her too.

  • FloridaChick813

    It might just be me, but she is a bit much..

    all those facial expressions, and hand movements...

    Ol girl looked like she was at a BAPZ audition..

    I couldnt even stand to watch the whole ineterview :rolleyes:

    Exactly @ Bird she is a hood chic, I never said she wasn't. So knowing that, I expected what she gave. I am comparing her to other hood chics NOT Michelle O or Jackie O (the real one) and compared to lets say a Fantasia, Tiny, Toya, Ne ne etc. Yes she does speak well. I am holding her to the lane she is in not world leaders.

    @ Karaz, to say because she has had moderately high income...I don't get it, all of the women I have named aboved have high income and they are not polished (in my opinion), hell MJB, Monica, Lindsey Lohan, Paris Hilton, Britney Spears are all very wealthy and we are not on here talk about how ghetto they are.

  • http://myspace.com/thegameoncw Bird

    Al-Ameera

    Now that you put it in context I totally agree with you. For a hood chick Miss LisaRaye does have it going on. I think mama and daddy instilled in her that she is above the hood chicks who date the men that were several levels below her daddy. She IS Winter Santiaga. I'm starting to think Sista Soulja based that book loosely off Lisa's life.

    Chi-town STAND UP!!! I have a newfound respect for LisaRaye after watching the interview, but I must say she is so hood! She definitely looks like and has speech similar to Beyonce. Good luck to Lisa with her future endeavors! :)
