Ms. Drama caught up with Lisa Raye to talk about the second season of her reality show. Raye opens up about the “good drama” in her life and why there is now no pressure since she has come to terms with who she is. She admits to making mistakes early on in her career, but believes she is stronger and has learned from them. Raye highlights her current accomplishments including her two reality shows and touches on the importance of censorship in music and film. She addresses the negative portrayal of women and her involvement in the stereotype. She explains why she a “body” girl and why being appealing to the male audience is a good thing especially for a 43 year old woman. She ends with her thoughts on finding Mr. Right and why a reality dating show is not for her.

Since the purchase of my flip cam almost 2 years ago, I have been on the proverbial mission to document all that is Ms. Drama. Surprisingly, those moments have led to some of the most exclusive and intimate conversations with artists, celebrities, moguls and the like. I never became Ms. Drama for the flashing lights, but to create a lane of opportunity when the doors weren’t exactly open for a personality that couldn’t essentially be fit in a box. My background is journalism, but my personality strives to expose the hidden story (as uncomfortable as it may be) through humor, a little sarcasm, and more often than not a good amount of tactfulness that is often swept under the rug by the brand of Ms. Drama.

Nevertheless, with flipcam in hand, I continue to document the world of “drama” in hopes that the appropriate platform will rise to the challenge of housing such a brand. Yet, with that thought – can this brand truly be housed?
