It’s been a while since we’ve seen Lauren London on the big or small screen like that in a big role, and that probably has a lot to do with the fact that she has a three-year-old son at the house that she’s a doting mom to. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably already know that the gorgeous actress brought her son into the world with the help of rapper Lil Wayne. The shock over their choice to procreate together (more or less, the fact that she wanted to get down with the get down with him) has come and gone, and clearly, London is back to work, but it doesn’t mean people don’t have questions about it all. Well, really, just Wendy Williams does.
While on The Wendy Williams Show with Brandy and Jay Ellis to promote season 6 of The Game, in the short time that London was on the couch, Williams asked the actress about her new character, Keira Whitaker, a child star who is a “hot a** mess” on the show, but she really spent more time inquiring about her “baby’s father” (Wayne) and how having the baby at a time when her career was hot might have affected it after she had him. She made it the central topic after London brought him up as a reason why she doesn’t engage in after-hour shindigs with the cast. Here was their exchange, which starts around the 2:55 mark in the video below:
Wendy: Lauren’s baby’s father is the rapper Lil Wayne, and you two are no longer together, right?
London: No. We’re great friends though.
Wendy: You’re friend’s And you co-parent?
Lauren: Yes, of course.
Wendy: And is it difficult being a single parent in Hollywood?
Lauren: I think it’s difficult being a single parent period. For me, with my job, luckily I can bring him to work–
Wendy: –Cause I remember early in your career you were in a few projects and then you fell off the map. Then you had the baby. Do you feel as though you lost traction?
Lauren: You know what…No, because life happens. As an actor, your depth as an actor comes from life experience. And I think it just gave me life experience.
Wendy: How is Lil Wayne doing health wise?
Lauren: He’s great! His album comes out today! He’s really good.
Wendy: More money for you, girl…
Lauren: I make my own though.
Wendy: Isn’t that nice?
Lauren: Yes, my mother taught me well.
So glad to see that London handled such a line of questioning with class, because she could have been mum about it all, or acted a fool. Much respect, because we know how Wendy’s mouth can get. Check out their interaction below and let us know your thoughts!
