" My management and I were like, "Thank you, but no thank you." So maybe I should have made phone calls, but I didn't really think about it. I've talked to them individually at different times. But are we hanging out and having some wine and cheese on a Saturday night? I just had lunch with Mara [Brock Akil, the show's creator]; we met for a coffee like a month and a half ago. Akil has also had to deal with the sudden departure of Jones, who played real estate agent Toni before deciding to exit the show following last season over reported contract issues. I wasn't aware that he references me, I actually have that album and I'll have to listen to it again.
When the cast first came back for their seventh season, I sent them all, individually, every single person of because I was upset or wanted more money. It's so disappointing that because I wanted to dream bigger or experience something new, it received all this hoopla and drama around it. At the end of last season, Toni had a falling out with best friend Joan, played by Tracee Ellis Ross. As for Jones movie career, she's been busy breathing life into new diverse characters on the big screen with the same fervor and diva-next-door appeal in three new flicks.
magazine (Fall 2006 issue): "In order for the show to come back, the cast was not going to get the huge raises we dreamed of.
You end the show in like February and then they don't decide if they are going to pick you up because the upfronts until May. I was on the show for six years and I think that's a good run. If I were doing an interview about something I'm working on and someone wanted to ask me something, I have no problem answering it.
So why would I take my chair if I thought I was coming back? There's so much more I want to do in my career and so much more I want to know and learn, but my departure definitely had nothing to do with money. But for me to make a statement or a rebuttal, to me it's just silly. I wish I had a better answer or could tell you that I even thought about it.
