Former One Life to Live star Tika Sumpter dropped by The Arsenio Hall Show Thursday night to promote her new film Ride Along. The Haves and the Have Nots lead shared a tear-jerking memory of working with the late Whitney Houston on Sparkle. Sumpter recalled:
She played my mother, so that was the most amazing experience ever. That’s probably one of the biggest questions I’m asked is, ‘How was it working with Whitney?’ Whitney was everything. I’d kind of just be siting in a corner quiet and they’d be changing for the setup and she’s like, ‘You okay baby? Who do I need to talk to to make sure you’re alright?’ I’m like, ‘I’m good, I’m good!’ and she’d say, ‘I got you.’ So she was just like a mother, a motherly figure.
