With her striking good looks, DeWanda Wise should be a household name. DeWanda turned heads, wearing a money green dress at the AOL Build Series in NYC on Friday.

DeWanda, 34, is best known as Nola Darling in Spike Lee's Netflix TV series She's Gotta Have It, based on his 1986 film. DeWanda plays a Black, pansexual polyamorous activist and artist who juggles three lovers (because one is never enough).

She's Gotta Have It (2018) is on MSN's list of 11 Underrated Shows On Netflix.

DeWanda is a vegan, which explains her svelte shape. She married fellow actor Alano Miller in 2009 after three months of dating. The couple reside in Pasadena, California.

  • Gloria

    She's super gorgeous and I loved She's Gotta Have it! Hope there will be a season 2.

  • Scromes1212

    That show is super unrealistic smh but she is a great actress.

  • McKay

    She is stunning. Beautiful girl....

  • Li-Wright

    Hi, can you be more specific about your critique. I've never seen it, but the critics think it's good.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I didn't even know that there was a show based on the movie. Anybody watched it?

  • Quitedeliteful

    So you give it an absolute thumbs down?

  • Scromes1212

    I only watched one episode and it wasn't bad just didn't seem realistic.

  • Alextra Ballard

    She reminds me of the old Jayda Pinkett...she is gorjus

  • Stan4NoOne

    You're ignorant AF. Being a vegan doesn't explain her physique, working out and eating healthy does.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Pretty lady....

  • MoniquetheGeek

    Sandra's Morning Glory

    She's gorgeous. I tried to watch the show on Netflix but never made it past episode 1. No particular reason other than I have a short attention span lol.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Some movies should stay just that. A movie. Show is ok but it had started to get on my nerves.

    She is gorge

  • KLo


  • starryeyed

    I've seen it and it's worth watching. At the least you can form your own opinion of it.

  • Coy little wink

    Married after 3 months of dating...?


    Yes it came out on Netflix last December I believe

  • starryeyed

    She's cute and a Baltimore native


    Nola Darling... my show! She fine fine

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    I watched the show and actually enjoyed it. I took me a couple episodes to get in to it tho. It's on Netflix.

  • I want to be free

    I wouldn't say that she's ignorant but misinformed. I have a friend who is vegan and she is heavier than me so I agree that it doesn't explain her physique. It's much more than that.

  • Kim’s Original Face

    She’s gorge! I gotta check that out I’ve been meaning too I’ll try this weekend

  • Alextra Ballard

    Chiile,that's a looong time to be married to someone that you've only known for 3 must. I guess they were hella compatible..Congrats to her

  • Mz_Opinionated

    *Slow Blink* What?! LOL! She is someone EYE need to know? Er um...Not really. Does she have any special talents? Eating ice cream with her feet? Reading of minds...I'm okay...I have no idea who she even is.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    She’s pretty.

    Still haven’t seen the new She’s Gotta Have It though.

  • queen of cups

    I need to leave Popeyes and Krispy Kreme alone. She does radiate tho

  • KLove

    my attention span is notoriously short....that said, the fact that i was able to binge watch this in one day says a lot....i hope there is a season 2.....i see a bit of myself in each of her 3 lovers

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Not gon lie
    Polyamory sounds real good to me

  • Alextra Ballard

    LOL...Ni see that was suppose to be my dinna. A wing dinner with dirty rice and a bisuit....sweet tea to wash it down..Smh

  • RealATLPeach36

    Yeah life would be easy

  • RealATLPeach36

    Dang I wanted someone to watch it with me while I drink wine..all my homegirls was like uuummm. I can’t get into it. I also binge Dear white people!!!

  • Peppermint Patty

    Yea...if inspector gadget and jada had a baby....a cute baby

  • Quitedeliteful

    A young guy on my job admitted in a meeting on cultural diversity that he has absolutely no interest in sex. Zero interest -- and he wasn't sheepish about admitting it. He sez he has a girl and she's okay with it. Shrugs...

  • queen of cups

    lolol Fridays are my Popeys day

  • queen of cups


  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!! You betta get on that salad line! I'll meet you there (after I get me some fried shrimp and fish...)

  • MistaO

    More mess, as if we don't have enough foolery being promoted. Idiots...?

  • Quitedeliteful

    Admitted it OUT LOUD!!! Seems like the guys in the department already knew. He's nice looking too. All of the young girls couldn't understand why he wasn't trying to hit on at least one of them.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Me too

  • dontgetblocked

    She aight!

  • $amantha

    I should know her because why??!

  • Gamer?? Chick

    Looking good in that green girl!

  • TMW

    I watched it. It’s interesting, but like someone up top said, it gets irritating and drags on the middle a little bit.

  • Miss Thang

    I saw an interview with her about a year or so ago and I love her personality! I don't watch the show though. You got a thing for her, Auntie? ;)

  • Miss Thang

    Some people are like that. I couldn't do it. Sex is an extremely important part of any serious relationship for me. It's so important emotionally and mentally. It's a major stress relief and creative/imaginative outlet for me. Nah, I couldn't do without it.

  • PlayerP

    She fly!

  • Bashi22

    She’s super beautiful and her eyes beautiful as well.

  • Bashi22

    He need to check his hormones out. Also food, environment, stress mental issues could cause this

  • the guest

    Ms. Sandra, this is a beautiful post!

  • Soda

    She's married to the guy who played Cato, the slave with the scarface on Underground.

  • Nik

    A sweet tea would be good right now.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!


  • Junkanoo

    Guess Sandra is done with Rita Oreo and now has a crush on dewanda wise. That green outfit is alright not outstanding but we all know fashion isn't a strong point for Sandra.

  • DroneRivers

    I loved her and her husband in their roles on Underground. Too bad they canceled that show.

  • KcoolMuziq

    I LOVE hazel eyes on a dark skinned woman! Like DeWanda Wise,Tyra Banks, Kenya Moore and Stacey Dash.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    You got to go to rehab to shake Krispy Kreme. LOL!!! When the hot sign is on....

  • Coffee1st


  • Coffee1st

    She is undeniably beautiful but there's something about the way she looks that keeps me from labeling her as stunning.

  • Lee

    Yeah me too. It took me a year to give it another try, and when i did.....
    You wont be dissapointed!

  • Alextra Ballard

    How young is he

  • Quitedeliteful


  • Quitedeliteful

    He really seems normal. He swears he's just not interested and he's not even concerned about it. There is a name for this but I forget what it is.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I'm surprised he has a girlfriend. I'm even more surprised that she's okay with it. I was shocked that he was comfortable with letting the whole department know that he isn't interested in sex at all.

  • Malcom Flex

    She looks great and should have a long and successful career.

  • Lady_Elle

    She is gorgeous!

  • http://realitytea.com/ Lady Chatterley’s Lover

    How is she 34 if the movie was made in 1986?

  • http://realitytea.com/ Lady Chatterley’s Lover


  • Zeta Aggie

    Netflix made a new series. It’s pretty good too. Closely mimics the movie.

  • Zeta Aggie

    It’s called scared-of-disease-and-baby-mamas ???

  • Zeta Aggie

    So random but what part of you is in each?

  • Robert lee Bennett OG


  • flowerinthemoonlight

    Yeah she is gorgeous and sexy.

  • Kaze

    Dam I want those shoes

  • stav

    Kenya Moore wears contacts! She's been asked several times if her eyes were real, never to answer, and we know if they were real she'd be quite eager to make it known.

  • Shira Harding-James

    That’s the best part!

  • Chocolate

    U ain’t lying! ???

  • http://www.pureromance.com LA


  • http://www.pureromance.com LA

    Dmn.. I m leaning more and more into vegetarianism.. Like serious thought...

  • Kayke

    He’s Asexual .... it’s a normal thing... but more females than males identify this way.

  • Kayke

    Couldn’t get into the show, at all....but she’s a beauty nonetheless

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Me either ?????

  • Alextra Ballard

    It's like one of the guys that I work with. He's very attractive, 32,has his choice of wimmen but he doesn't like to be orally stimulated...he doesn't allow it....but he has no prollum of givin..but not receiving. I thought most meniz liked that





  • Rayne

    Her eyes are gorgeous.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Before bleaching cream...?

  • KcoolMuziq

    She was thrown in a pool by Phaedra’s ex husband Apollo & her eyes remained INTACT!

  • Soda

    I read that it was too expensive to make.

  • Mints

    I have see her with that makeup off before I can make the call. However, she does have those sexy eyes and she's vegan which is always a plus

  • Mr. Poopybutthole

    you can wear contacts while in a pool

  • Mr. Poopybutthole

    do you know if he is he still a virgin?

  • KenHay

    And Nicole Murphy.

  • B.Loveitt

    She's on the show that's based off the 1986 movie.

  • B.Loveitt


  • Mikayla

    The top pic is stunning but when I saw more I realized it’s just her eyes. That big head is a no go.

    Googled more and she has other stunning pics but others with that big jawline. She’s hit or miss.

  • B.Loveitt

    KM hair and eyes are a topic of discussion on many pages, "Google" that is. She said there hers, natural and people who went to high school with her said the same. One even said fine a pic of her when she was a kid...she's always had those eyes. ????

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    I can tell you love those hood looks. It is nothing wrong with that but dont down women who like a clean look.

  • stav

    Exactly! Her head was not submerged under water, she was in and out within a minute.

  • stav

    Please Google her back in the day before contacts, nose job ,etc. She did a advertisement in a magazine for a hair product, her nose was big, and her eyes were dark brown.

  • Coffee1st

    I did too but i call BS. The slave narrative that TU could NOT be televised...it was too powerful and much closer to reality.
    There is no way "African-Americans" would still be walking 'roun today if we didn't fight as hard as this tv show portrayed....as opposed to the stupid, submissive, hyper sexualized, brutes they try to tell us we were (are).

  • Coffee1st

    Would have loved to see which direction Cato was gonna go....

  • Soda

    I guess they want us to believe that raggedy slave costumes & locations cost more than the fancier ones of Game of Thrones and other shows. ?

  • KcoolMuziq

    I don’t know what it is about black woman with REAL natural long hair and natural light eyes. They get hated on CONSTANTLY!

  • Real Proper

    I love her. I watched on her on the show Underground

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    WAIT! THATS NOLA DARLING??? Sexier back in the day! IJS


    Shes pretty.., and can change her look.

  • Louisville Is4TheBirds

    That back shot has me like ????

  • Louisville Is4TheBirds

    You dont have the will power. Stick to your carnivorous ways.

  • Jennifer

    That was such an amazing show and I hate that it's over ?

  • Judge Mental Will

    She look aggravating with that hat on, like janelle monae
