BET’s “Sistas” & “Zatima” Star Crystal Renee Hayslett is not only one of our favorite actresses and stars on TV but she’s one of our favorite humans as well!
Crystal is about her business and she’s going to always keep it real when things need to be kept real.
In a recent interview with BET, Crystal spoke about how “Zatima” relationship is more realistic than what a normal TV show would share and we whole heartedly agree!
“We take a lot of time to craft our characters and make sure that people see us as human beings and see themselves in us. We don’t want to have a glorified, perfect relationship that isn’t attainable. As a woman, I’ve watched television and the different types of love onscreen that’s not reality. We’re giving people reality — if you love someone and you stick with them, things can be beautiful and it can be your own fairytale.”
Speaking on Social Media and how it has ruined the idea of relationships, she shared:
“I feel our show is going against what you see on social media because it only shows the highlight reel of people’s lives and doesn’t give couples a real chance to thrive. I think [Zatima] is bringing back some of that reality into the viewers’ homes so you can see this is what people deal with or if Zatima can make it, we can make it, too.”
Crystal is always going to give it to you bluntly and Real and that’s what we love about her!
