And if you’re working on a comedy, you can’t really deal with what’s going on so like a lot of women, especially in America, I ate!! So I gained a lot of weight but lost it again around the 4th season.But like a lot of women, I go up, I go down, part of being a woman, isn’t it. You’ve obviously done a lot of interviews since you’ve been in the country, what is the weirdest question anyone’s asked you?She gets dumped, she gets fat, she has fashion disasters and just a whole lot of things that I could personally identify with.Rachel True may not be your "always in the tabloids" kinda celebrity but to me, she's a star!Rachel : ( You know it’s funny coz I’d be walking in a mall and look at everybody checking who looks like me , but it’s a tricky question for Black people in America because we want to connect with something.We’ve sort of been shunned in our own country for a long time so I think it’s only natural that people may wanna refer to Africa as the muthaland but the truth is that I’m an American gal and I realize that there are cultural differences between us so I would never say “ Brown Shuga: Mzansi knows and loves you as Mona Thorne in Half n Half.Rachel: Ahh, I haven’t really been asked too many weird questions but I think the weirdest has been “ because really I’ve been working.I’ve come here, do interviews, go to set, maybe go to the mall so I feel like I wish I could tell people what the most exciting thing is but I still have to do it.
