Rashad recently said that people often confused her character with who she was in real life, specifically as a parent.

“People say, ‘Oh, oh! You’re just the perfect mother!’ And I look at them and smile and say, ‘Thank you.’ But you know it’s easy when you’re scripted and the children are scripted too,” she said during a chat with The Breakfast Club. “In real life, there are no scripts and there’s no handbook. It’s really something, it’s really something as a parent to come to that place where you understand, ‘Yes I’m the parent but, hey, I don’t know everything,’ and, ‘Hey, that is a mind and a human being and a spirit and soul in development.'”
