HomeTVBETTatyana Ali on Young and Restless Gig: “When The Black People Have a Party Roxanne Shows Up” Jillian Bowe January 11, 2013 10 Comments Tatyana Ali swung by Bravo's Watch What Happens Live last night to chew the fat and promote her latest television project, Second Generation Wayans. Host Andy Cohen asked Ali a viewer's question wondering when she will be back in Genoa City on The Young and the Restless. Ali cracked to an amused Cohen and R&B singer T-Boz of TLC: I'm recurring, so a couple times a month. I'm mostly in there when the black people have a party. When the black people have a party, Roxanne shows up." Gotta love her sense of humor! 10 Responses thecourt99 January 11, 2013 i CRIED when she said that…. Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 January 11, 2013 She’s got so many other irons in the fire that she really ain’t stuttin’ Y&R anyway………… Log in to Reply lance_prentiss January 11, 2013 @alstonboy, you are so correct. It’s a shame that TPTB are wasting her talents (and others) on the show. I saw her on Watch What Happens Live last night and I laughed out loud whe she made that statement. Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 January 11, 2013 Lance_prentiss– Yeah, I like Tatyana. She is nice and sweet and actually doesn’t ignore her fans on Twitter like so many other celebuNOTS. Log in to Reply lance_prentiss January 11, 2013 LMAO! I so agree. She is so down to earth and doesn’t have a big ego from being a celebrity. I wonder if our girl VR cosigns Tatyana’s comments:) Log in to Reply truthtakestime2000 January 11, 2013 GET HER ON! LOVE THIS GIRL ON MY Y&R AND WHY SHE ISN’T ON MORE IS LOST ON ME! Log in to Reply Divatude58 January 11, 2013 Well, she just gauranteed that she won’t be on for the next 6 months and probably comdemned BJ to not having anything happen in his love life this year….come on now, you know that the black actors on Y&R are punished severely for speaking about anything to do with race as related to that show and airtime and SL. I am glad that she doesn’t need Y&R. She could really come on and steal CKs little but of thunder if given hald the opportunity that CK was given…but there can only be 2 black female true characters on that show at a time. One is Lily and the other must be paired with Neil. Devon will continue to suffer in the romance department without a third. Log in to Reply Peridott January 11, 2013 LOL, well she’s right. I don’t think she condemned BJ. TPTB have no interest in Devon, with or without Roxy. Log in to Reply pferrando January 12, 2013 No offense to her, but she really has never been a major character. They really SHOULDN’T trot her out for these events. It’s silly. My suggestion is have Devon and her announce their engagement, and have them exit the show. Neither is used properly and I doubt that with all the new faces coming on. Log in to Reply hey mon January 13, 2013 Get her on. If Tyler can be given air time each and every day, with this ridiculous s/l about him hankering after the CEO’s wife/daughter, then Roxanne can and should be on.
