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!
