Tempest Bledsoe in new movie to air on Oxygen

with 3 comments

Known for her role as Vanessa Huxtable in the hit sitcom “The Cosby Show”, Tempset Bledsoe returns to television in the movie “Husband For Hire” in which she plays a lawyer. The movie will air on the Oxygen network Saturday.  Bledsoe sits down with Black Voices for an interview in which she talks about her hiatus from TV, The Cosby Show, and her talk show. Here is a snippet:

Do people still call you Vanessa Huxtable?
Yeah all the time. Even on the phone, ordering anything like plane tickets. Apparently my voice is very distinctive, so before I even give my name, people know ho I am. I get called out all the time. But you have to embrace that. There are a lot of actors who fight against it as they are struggling for an identity of their own, it kind of irks them. I totally embrace it. Its love and respect for what you did and the show had such a profound effect on so many people, so it’s never a negative thing. People usually say, hey Vanessa, and I let them know that I’m Tempest, but it’s always love.
