Condola Rashad Addresses Orlando Bloom Dating Rumors

condola-rashad-denies-orlando-bloom-dating-rumorsCondola Rashad and Orlando Bloom set temperatures rising with their updated version of Romeo and Juliet, but could the same be happening off stage? Ever since the latter split from Victoria’s Secret wifey Miranda Kerr, sources say the Lord of the Rings actor is on the rebound with his Broadway co-star.

Although the two have graced more than a few red carpets together, Condola insists their relationship is nothing more than a friendship.

“Orlando and I are co-workers and friends, that’s all. The fact anyone thinks anything more I guess means we’ve done a good job portraying passion and love in our performance. People are addicted to shock and extra drama so they’ll go to any measure to credit that,” she tells the Daily Mirror.

In related news, the actress is also calling out Wendy Williams for name checking her mother, Phylicia Rashad, in a recent episode of her talk show.

“You can perpetrate lies about me all day, even though as women in this business,we should be helping not slandering each other…Never come for my mother though. You should have more respect than that ma’am. #KickRocks,” she tweeted.
