Tichina Arnold has had a busy few months. The 48-year-old mother and actress was celebrated this past week at McDonald’s 365 Black Awards where she was honored for achievements in entertainment. There she talked about her new VH1 show “Daytime Divas” as well as her new single status.
“I hadn’t read a script this good in a long time,” Arnold said of “Divas” where she plays Mo Evans opposite Vanessa Williams.
The former “Everybody Hates Chris” star also divorced from Rico Hines last year. “I don’t know how to be single again!” she said of the split. “It’s sad. I don’t even know what to look at or what I’m into. Right before my second marriage I was really cool with being single. I’d fell into a nice rhythm raising my daughter, and then here comes the second husband.”
Arnold reveals she has no hard feelings about the divorce. “It didn’t work out but I’m not sad or upset about it,” she said. “Life happens. You’ve got to stay positive. And drink wine.”
“I always allowed the man to choose me,” she continued, “so I’m going to switch direction a little and give myself more time.”
