(via Yahoo) NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Actress Tempestt Bledsoe says she’s thrilled to be returning to network television on a show that portrays “a positive black family” similar to the long-running hit sitcom she was part of for roughly eight years — “The Cosby Show.”
“That show was my childhood,” said Bledsoe, who played middle child Vanessa Huxtable in the NBC show that also starred Bill Cosby, Phylicia Rashad, Malcolm-Jamal Warner, Lisa Bonet and Keshia Knight Pulliam. “It did so many things. It greatly influenced the kinds of projects I did. It helped form my core values, like my work ethic.”
Bledsoe and actor Anthony Anderson spoke Friday at the Essence Music Festival about the new show they’re starring in, “Guys with Kids,” which premieres this fall on NBC. Read entire story here.
