Viola was a presenter at the ceremony. Viola is one of my favorite actresses so I was super nervous to speak to her.  I remember how I tripped over my words when she was in front of me, but through the power of editing you don't get to witness that.  One day I hope to get a chance to do a sit down interview with her. She has so much wisdom to share in the journey that lead her to the amazing place she is in right now.  Watch my interview below.

Quencie Interviews Jenifer Lewis

Is there a movie that Jenifer Lewis has not been in?  Check your DVD collection or your TV guide and I'm sure you will see her name come up more than it doesn't.  This veteran actress is a treasured legend, especially to Black Hollywood.  She is so good that she makes you love and hate her at the same time depending on what role she's playing. Who didn't love her in 'Jackie's Back'? And who didn't hate her in, 'What's Love Got To Do With It' starring Angela Bassett or 'Not Easily Broken' starring Taraji P. Henson.  

I had the distinct honor to sit down with Jenifer Lewis in the backyard of her Hollywood mansion.  If you liked Jenifer Lewis before, be prepared to fall in love with her after this interview. Her honesty, words of wisdom, and humor, are what you will immediately feel after watching this interview.  Watch my interview with the original Dreamgirl below. You will walk away inspired.
