You had a long stint on The Game, and now your branching out with a hit reality show, new sitcom and product line that launched. How do you define yourself?
I really feel like I’ve grown as a person, and an actress. When I was on The Game I was able to do so many things. I was able to really stretch as an actor. Today, I’m a mom, and I have a whole new perspective on life and that definitely ties into my acting now.
