Meagan Good has a new leading role on NBC in the network’s newest drama “Deception.”¬†¬† 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.¬† We “KNOW” each other.
On the wedding to husband DeVon Franklin
We had 200 people.¬† It was more people than I wanted to have. But we have a lot of family so‚Ä¶.
I auditioned once and got the part. The second time I went in, I didn’t realize it was the actual testing.¬† This is my third project with Laz Alonso.¬† My¬† 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.¬† And a stepsister and a younger sister.¬† 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.¬† Then we met again when he exec. produced Jumping The Broom.¬† 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.”¬† 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.
