The life of a triple threat entertainer is paved with more roadblocks than you think—just ask D. Woods. We know her as 1/5 of Diddy’s handpicked girl group Danity Kane, but this reality TV alum has been carefully crafting solo stardom in both music and film. While the work to get there has been challenging and plagued with plenty rumors (more on that later), 2014 is proving to be a major breakthrough.
This year, fans will get to know Wanita Woodgett as lovestruck “Leslie,” the resident PK (preacher’s kid) of Blackbird, an indie darling headed by Oscar winner Mo’Nique and Grey’s Anatomy’s Isaiah Washington. With reviews already calling the small project a major success, we had to chop it up with Woods about her experience on and off the set.
Keep reading to see when Mo’Nique predicted D.’s future, why we should stop bashing the word “ratchet” and lastly, what exactly happened with Danity Kane.
