Robin Givens is having the time of her life taking part in a TV vixen on OWN’s newest drama, however the actress says the conniving diva is about to study some arduous classes.
Stephanie Lancaster is about to study that you may’t all the time get what you need. That’s what Robin Givens, the actress who performs the scheming lawyer within the OWN drama, Ambitions, says. The 54-year-old tells Hollywood EXCLUSIVELY that – though Stephanie might imagine she has every thing in management – she’s really on the verge of unraveling, proper earlier than the viewers’s eyes.
Over the previous few months viewers have watched because the legal professional has tried to interrupt up her ex-boyfriend Titus Hughes (performed by Kendrick Cross) and his spouse (her former BFF) Amara (Essence Atkins). But, whereas she’s obsessing over that, she’s been oblivious to the truth that her husband Mayor Evan Lancaster (Brian White) is dishonest on her with designer Bella Tru (Erica Page), the mom of his secret lovechild.
“With Evan, she addresses it early on,” Robin says, acknowledging that Stephanie suspects that her husband is being untrue (with out realizing who his mistress is). “She says, ‘You’ve been spending long nights. Everybody’s noticing.’ But I think making the connection… Really, I think she thinks [she and Bella are] sort of friends and I don’t think that Stephanie has a lot of them. She genuinely thought Bella was a friend and that friends wouldn’t do that. Now, if you think about it, she’s already had a friend take a man from her. So Bella must be crazy.”
But, within the Nov. 19 episode, there’s a touch that the mayor’s spouse received’t stay clueless ceaselessly. “Keep in mind that the audience is ahead of Stephanie,” Robin says when requested if she can provide followers a sneak peek of what’s to return. “So everyone is wondering how she’s going to react [when she finds out]. We definitely get to see finally how she reacts. And we get to see things kind of unravel a little bit for Stephanie because we’ve watched her set up everything, bringing Amara’s ex in, and then she loses control.”
In this case dropping management is an efficient factor. “As an actress it was nice to have her in control and now lose control and manage to scramble to put the pieces back together,” Robin says. Her character positively has been busy and that features making an attempt to control her sister-in-law Rondell Lancaster (Brely Evans) into promoting the household restaurant Thelma’s Place to safe a profitable actual property deal that she’s been engaged on. For Robin – who relishes taking part in Stephanie – she thinks the glam legal professional who works in her dad’s legislation agency isn’t a villain. She’s simply misunderstood. “There’s this genuine sense of I’m as good as the guys, dammit. But I do think she has a heart.” Ambitions airs on OWN on Tuesdays at 10pm.
