Meagan Good has a new leading role on NBC in the network’s newest drama “Deception.”Â Â And today, she stopped by Wendy Williams’ show to dish about how she nabbed the role and baby talk.
Here are the Highlights:
On Meagan’s friendship with “ATL Housewife” Kenya Moore
I know Kenya. We actually were putting together a film a few years back. And I’m happy for her now that she’s single. She wasn’t at the wedding.Â We “KNOW” each other.
On the wedding to husband DeVon Franklin
We had 200 people.Â It was more people than I wanted to have. But we have a lot of family soâ€¦.
I auditioned once and got the part. The second time I went in, I didn’t realize it was the actual testing.Â This is my third project with Laz Alonso.Â MyÂ husband is really good friends with Laz so [the love scenes] are kind of weird because it’s like kissing your brother. There’s a mutual respect between both of them though.
On her siblings
I have an older sister and brother.Â And a stepsister and a younger sister.Â My youngest sister is in a singing group and my older sister is a singer as well.
On her husband
DeVon is a preacher but he doesn’t have a ‘congregation’. He does speaking engagements. We met 6 years before on a christian film and he called me into his office and told me if I needed anything to definitely let him know.Â Then we met again when he exec. produced Jumping The Broom.Â And here we are.
We were celibate for 10 months before we got married. I had to pray on it. When I told [my big sister in the business] Tasha Smith, “DeVon is my husband”, She was like, “you know he’s celibate right. Like real celibate.”Â Meagan said, “I am too.” But it was only for 2 months.
On having children
“The only pitter patter I’m going to hear right now is my niece Penny and her little sister on the way.”
On her eyebrows
I tattoo’d them 2 years ago. The area I grew up in, there were a lot of spanish girls. And they used to shave their eyebrows off to draw them on. When I started doing that, they didn’t grow back. So I had to tattoo them on.
