So happy for her! She's really doing something post OLTL.

Thrilled to see primetime recognizing Tika's talents. I miss Layla more every time I watch Gigi forced on Cris.

Definitely agreed. I'll try to Netflix her movie Stomp The Yard 2 (I wish Columbus was back for this) and then we have The Game and finally GG! I can't wait to see what's next for her. Ugh she's toxic with everyone on that show - can't wait until OLTL cuts their loss with her.

It's amazing. As talented as she is, they kept wasting her and she leaves and instantly books all these gigs. It makes OLTL look so bad. Her chemistry with Mark Lawson and David Fumero should've been enough to secure her spot on the frontburner for years. Stupid execs!
