Actually, with “Half & Half” we were on the best schedule. I feel that you have to at least get in 3 times a week. He’s been left with a mess and I feel he’s going to do the best he can. Everybody I know, people on the streets, are ready to work.It wasn’t like your typical episodic where you’re working 12 to 14 hour days. He can’t do it alone, we have to change our way of thinking and doing things and, unless we all pull together, nothing’s going to get done. ” And because I AM wiser and older – I don’t have to make the same silly mistakes that I made as a kid.

I walk out in the bright cool afternoon to the gate of my apartment complex to greet my friend who I haven’t seen in several years. The woman who’s been nominated as best featured actress for a Tony for her performance in Fosse on Broadway, 3 time NAACP nominee for her role on the hit sit-com Half & Half as the glamorous diva “Big Dee Dee Thorne”, and has worked on a list of theatre, television, cabaret shows, recordings and films as long as my arm, strolls in wearing jeans and a sweatshirt, no makeup, glasses…and is as gorgeous as ever. It’s a way that I can lend my services with my talent. TALKING ABOUT TRAINING, WHAT ARE YOU DOING AT 48 YEARS OLD TO KEEP YOURSELF IN THIS KIND OF SHAPE?just well-rounded woman who knows who she is, who knows what she wants, and knows HOW-TO-GET-IT! And then with Reality TV, it’s just a really tough time for the art. Then I’ll go to the machines that work on the “pulley system” and I’ll jump from machine to machine doing 3 sets of 15, slightly raising the weight each set. I used to be afraid of raising the weight but even my doctor assured me that it won’t bulk you up and he’s right. It’s a combination of these things that I find really works. I’m just feeling so much joy for those two little girls! I…I guess I’m feeling the way that my parents did about Kennedy. One, I am proud of the man that he is…I believe in what he stands for and what his goals are as president. I did not CHOOSE him because he’s African American. I never thought, in my lifetime, that this day would come… Valarie: My number one hope, and it’s already started because we elected him, is that we finally become color blind.
Valarie: (laughs) A Kougar to ME is a Hot – Sexy – Wise – Great freakin’ sense of humor… Just to be in their company makes me happy, but it’s even tougher now. (She laughs) I haven’t traveled around the country yet with my shows, but I’ve performed in New York, LA, Palm Springs, Catalina…KM: IT DOESN’T SEEM TO BE THE BEST TIME FOR A STRIKE RIGHT NOW AND I’VE OVERHEARD A LOT OF PEOPLE SAY THEY’RE AGAINST IT FOR THAT REASON. Once you cut that stuff down, it changes your brain pattern and you don’t feel like you’re on a diet because when I hear that word “diet” I freak out. And as far as working out, I recently had knee surgery, so I’ll put the treadmill at an incline of 15 and I’ll just walk for 30 minutes – it works up a nice sweat. KM: WHAT CHANGES WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE MADE WITH BARACK AS PRESIDENT?
I work with incredible musicians, I collaborate with an incredible director and musical director. – and I try to be in the gym no more than an hour a day. For example, I’ll do upper body one day and lower body the next so I rest different muscle groups. I’d like to think that would also play a big part in the entertainment industry - for more minorities to be placed in leading roles. She’s everything we could want in a mother, a wife, and also a First Lady! She’s smart, witty, she’s a great mom – you can tell! And you KNOW she’s a great wife because look at the way President Obama looks at her! And I just want to add, I don’t know if it’s the public’s perception or the media’s of how everyone feels about what he’s going to do for us, but it’s going to take time.
KM: HOW DO YOU FIT WORKING OUT INTO YOUR BUSY SCHEDULE, FOR INSTANCE, WHEN YOU WERE WORKING ON “HALF & HALF”? (she laughs) Sometimes when you get old the memory goes! KM: I’M GOING TO TOTALLY SWITCH IT UP AND ASK YOU HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT OUR NEW PRESIDENT! Speaking from a woman’s point of view, an African American woman at that, it would be nice to see it get to a point where it’s OK to have more than one black female on a show! But there is a definite shift for a better world and he’s already started it by who he is and I’m ready to take the journey with him.
