Who says sistahs can't sell covers? Well, basically everyone who works in the magazine industry, but I've never bought that bull ish. Soap Opera Weekly must not be buying that logic either, because not only did they put former The Young and the Restless star Victoria Rowell (ex-Drucilla) on the cover of this week's issue, but the actress was also interviewed in a full-page, front-of-the-book piece on her diversity fight with Y&R, CBS and Sony. Here are a few excerpts from the steamy read:
"I saw an inequality from wardrobe to writing to media opprtunities to coverage in magazines. Anytime you're the whistle blower, or any time that you are the one who's bringing attention to something that has been practiced, you will be hated and you will be villified," she says."
"I do not enjoy having to change lines to create an authenticity for the black family."
To find out what else Rowell had to say, and what she feels would be the "sweetest justice", pick up the February 1 issue of Soap Opera Weekly on newstands today.
