BET’s “Sistas” & “Zatima” Star Crystal Hayslett is all smiles this week celebrating writers and her podcast!
During the episode, she spoke a little about the strike which is currently over for Writers (WAG) but still in session for Actors (SAG).
After the huge announcement about the writers strike finally ending, she sent out an IG story supporting the writers:
This week Crystal was joined by comedian Kountry Wayne during a new episode of her hit podcast “Keep It Positive, Sweetie” where she shared a fun fact with fans about her pay for both “Sistas” & “Zatima”. She even shared that “Zatima” was suppose to be filming right now.
During the episode, she stated that she makes more money on “Zatima” than on “Sistas” which makes perfect sense because she’s the lead on “Zatima”.
Watch the full episode here:
Due to the strike, “Zatima” Season 3 was put on hold and we cannot wait until the show can film again! Fatima is pregnant so we know it’s going to be a must watch!
