Wendy Raquel Robinson Grammy Awards 2011 – GRAMMYs Guided by TurboTax

Hey I’m Shira Lazar backstage at the Grammys brought to
you by Turbo Tax with Wendy Raquel Robinson. Hey. Hey, and what are you up to here at the Grammys? Well, I’m just kind of hangin’ out. Actually I’m runnin
into a lot of old friends. I just saw Bobby Brown. I haven’t seen him since we
worked together and promoting The Game actually. Yeah, so let’s talk about The Game. Let’s talk about The Game. The Game is on, it is on fire. BET just recently picked it up and we broke records. How exciting? Yes, it’s beyond exciting. We were the highest rated, scripted, half hour television show in cable television history. For our premiere we got 7.7, close to 8, yeah. How is that possible? Exactly, you know we had been on CW for the first three years and then we were cancelled and BET picked it up, but the momentum from the fans and from the media it just grew and grew and grew into something that’s just amazing. Yeah, you only hope for that, right? Exactly, you only dream about that. It’s really interesting that that happened. Yeah. I guess it’s just like the perfect audience and the right show. It was a good fit. It’s kind of like
Cinderella. You know, she put on that shoe and was like Oh my God I’m the one. Are you gonna be shooting now, again? Yeah, we just finished season four so the episodes are airing now. We come on Tuesday nights, ten o’clock eastern, seven o’clock pacific standard time. Now do you have one person that guided you through
your career to get to where you’re at today? You know I want to say my mother was very instrumentalwonderful choices. in a lot of things, just keepin’ me grounded and I’ve just been really really blessed to have had great representation and made wonderful choices. You know what I mean? I want to say it’s a divine
intervention too, just being spiritually there where I don’t have to compromise anything or feel that I need to do anything that’s outside of my realm to justify myself as an actress. I’m a stage actress. I came from the theater first. Yeah So I’ll always go back to that and that’s my first love. So I want to give a shout out to my professors,
a lot of my acting professors at Howard University. Hey, big ups to you. So yeah, they’ve been great mentors and just really inspirations in my life and Debbie Allen was a huge mentor for me. Okay Yes. It’s always good to have mentors. Oh yes, we
need them, especially in this business. Yes, I agree and thank you so much. Thanks for having me. Check her out on BET’s The Game. Hey. It’s on right now on Tuesday. Yes. So check it out. Thank you so much. Thank you for having me. Sponsored by Turbo Tax. Turbo Tax guides you step by step to the maximum refund you deserve.
