Malinda Williams Speaks On What She’s Learned About Love And Co-Parenting With Mekhi Phifer

August 28, 2014  |  

Malinda Williams has been our girlfriend in our head ever since “The Wood” and maybe even further back than that. The petite actress known for rocking fabulous pixie cuts always brings humor and realness to her characters on TV and film, and when Malinda stopped by the office recently we were pleasantly surprised to find that she’s exactly the same way in real life.

Promoting her upcoming TV One movie Girlfriends’ Getaway, airing August 30, Malinda talked about her, Essence Atkins, Garcelle Beauvais, and Terri J. Vaughn “cutting up” on set, but then she also got serious and talked about life as a two-time divorcée and what she’s learned about love as a result, as well as how she manages to co-parent with her first husband Mekhi Phifer whom she says is not the easiest to get along with. Anyone surprised?

Check out all that tea and more in the video up top and tell us what you think. Make sure to tune into Girlfriends’ Getaway at 8p on TV One Saturday night.
