Crystal Renee ‘: Fatima is loosely based around Crystal as far as her demeanor and her demeanour, but a good deal of the storeys that I share with Tyler go to all of the different characters.

BOSSIP: How difficult is it to poise labor as a Consulting Producer and playing at the same time?

Crystal Renee ‘: I consult with Tyler as far as things going on and what things we’re dealing with dating in Atlanta. The first season I was costume make, I was consulting producing and acting and it was insane, so the second season I was like we need to find someone else to do the costume design because it was just too much. Season 2, both acting and consulting was a lot easier because most of my work is done on the front end so by the time we get to camera I can precisely focus on acting.

BOSSIP: Have you always wanted to act?

Crystal Renee ‘: Since I was a child behaving has been a passion of mine. I used to give speeches on my mothers fireplace mantle, like following address for the purposes of an honors show, since I was around five-years-old.

BOSSIP: Similar to Fatima, your religion are crucial to you. Can you talk about how your spirituality has helped you manifest your action points?

Crystal Renee ‘: My journey wasn’t the original passage that a lot of people go through when they pursue acting. My faith played a big part because there came a point in time where I had to positioned my religion in God and allow him to order my gradations. Even when things weren’t croaking the space I thought they should. Especially around the times when I started going callbacks from auditions all of a sudden Tyler asked me to be his stylist and a costume designer so I was at a crossroads like,’ Do I take this undertaking or do I continue to chase this dream” and as you’re getting older you too miss stability so I was like’ alright Lord I’m just going to trust you on this and take this hassle .’ And everything terminated up works out and I couldn’t imagine it to work out any better, for it to be on a show that I actually cured develop, that I’m actually developing on. I was there from the beginning of the see. It’s actually super narcotic to see how things unfolded.

BOSSIP: What are some of the comments you get from your best friend about the picture?

Crystal Renee ‘: They love it. My friends and family will be like,’ That was Crystal right there. Certain things that they know me .’ The past pair escapades with the shower vistum I had people stumbling me who I hadn’t talked to in years talking about,’ Oh so this is what we’re doing ?’ One of my exes stumble me like,’ Oh you indicating out now ,’ and I’m like’ I’m just doing my job .’ My pa retained inviting my momma,’ Is it over? Is it over? Is it over ?’

BOSSIP: What’s it like working with Devale Ellis, who comedies your ardour interest Zack?

Crystal Renee ‘: I could not be luckier to have such an amazing place partner. Devale he’s patient, he’s a educator, I learn so much better from him and he takes the time to help me develop my attribute and my skillset. Because we shoot really fast, sometimes he can see me get overwhelmed and he’ll be like,’ Hey take a overpower, you got this .’ And it’s vice versa more, like one day he came to me like,’ Crystal I was essential to carry this ,’ because he had a super long daytime and his ability was just fried, and I was like,’ I got you !’ So we lean on each other. We’re really good friends, I’m friends with his part kinfolk, his wife. So it just attains on camera that much easier. I trust him. I super love D. We call him the Dad of the cast, because he’s like,’ Alright guys, we gotta do this today .’ He treats us like we’re his kids.

BOSSIP: We watched his wife( Khadeen Ellis) your statements saying she approximately jump-start in the shower with you guys for the gender incident.

Crystal Renee ‘: Yesssss. I enjoy K. She is so funny but she was so serious. One thing I love about his wife is she is so confident in their union, because you only never know when you have situations like that with someone who is married. It was something I was apprehensive about. It was the first sex scene I ever lived, I was super nervous and on top of that this man is married and I wanted to be conscious that there is a wife at home watching this. When I met her there was an instant bond. It was funny because “hes having” announced, it was right before we had to shoot that situation and he told her,’ Crystal is super uneasy because we have to go shoot this shower incident .’ K was like,’ Girl you better go do your thing.’I think when she said that it really helped me like,’ You get this’. It was one less thing I have to worry about. She genuinely cured me.

BOSSIP: This show is a little wild, some of the storylines are doing the most, do you ever say this is a little extreme?

Crystal Renee ‘: It’s go hard-boiled or go home and let Tyler Perry do his thing. Once I impart my input on dating and those type of things it’s Tyler Perry’s show after that, so whatever he writes, that’s what we film. He’s known for the cliffhangers. It’s funny because when we’re reading the scripts we’re like, what’s about to happen next? We’re just in suspense like everybody else.

BOSSIP: We’re waiting for everyone to figure out that Zack’s new girl is Andi’s co-worker. How small is the world?

Crystal Renee ‘: What’s funny is the character Fatima has no idea that Zack is Karen’s ex. You know Zack and Fatima have only been out to dinner one time. Everything else has been at the house and the one time we did go out nobody investigate us. And he never says Karen’s appoint. It’s just an ex and every time he says something, Fatima is like,’ I don’t want to hear about her.’

BOSSIP: Is there a reading in that? Do women need to do less at home dates? Or at least know the ex’s name so they know they’re not going to get their mane done by her?

Crystal Renee ‘: Absolutely. Communication is key. I think it’s important. There’s 50/50. Sometimes your past is your past, I don’t care but likewise I really want to make sure I don’t know that person because if it’s somebody that I’m really cool with then that’s a no go.

BOSSIP: That’s a real Atlanta thing more — Atlanta is so small the dating circles are like if you didn’t date that person one of your friends may have or you may have dated one of his friends, it’s one of those things that is really perilous in certain cities.

Crystal Renee ‘: Yeah and that’s something I certainly stroked cornerstones with Tyler on. This metropolitan is so tiny. It really is. It’s like a dating kitty. And you don’t know who’s dated who. I’m happy we got to touch on that because it’s so true.

BOSSIP: What’s next for you? We adore the contents you organize outside of TV, all the video lessons you announce on social media.

Crystal Renee ‘: I’m auditioning, trying to book more nonsense. I’m really excited about the pulpit this has given me and the potential that wait in the future.

As far as the video lessons, I’m super creative and it’s something I “ve been wanting to” do. And I adore editing. It’s something about creating the contents and revising it and putting it out there and going that feedback from certain people who tried recipes or made interior decorating suggestions that I had, my hair videos they adoration those. It’s something I have a lot of merriment doing and something I obviously want to take to another level with my firebrand, whether that’s something like having my own whisker produces or my own interiors argument. It’s something I unquestionably want to think about.
