Underappreciated Actress of Color #47: Tichina Arnold
I loooooooove Tichina Rolanda Arnold. I loved her on Martin, and I adored her on Everybody Hates Chris. She's an excellent comedic actress, a sultry beauty, and an all-around bad-ass woman.
Born in 1968, Tichina is a New York native. She got her start on the stage, later moving to film and television, and in 1998, she briefly worked as a designer, creating "China Moon Rags." Unfortunately, she stopped once her daughter was born. These days, she and her band KNOW Pressure play shows regularly in the Los Angeles (you can follow them on Twitter).
The lil sis and I have always felt Miss Thang here was was the prettiest woman on Martin. *nods* We maintain this opinion...no disrespect to Tisha Campbell. But light skin does not automatically a beautiful black woman make.
