VULTURE: The Girlfriends hive would be mad if I didn’t ask: Is there any chance of a reboot or movie?

Yeah, you can tell any studio in town: If they got 50 to 60 million, I already have the script. We can make an epic story and we can make a lot of money, but me hustling and knocking on doors begging to do this story is not where it is anymore. It deserves somebody to see the value in it and write that check. That’s what it’s about. People often think I have the power. Well, I have a lot of creative input, I know the vision of it, but I need the money. That’s what this industry is all about — supporting artists and supporting storytellers and hearing the audience for what they want and need. There still is a lack of value for what black women want, yet we have proven to be one of the strongest consumers in the marketplace. Yet we still are undervalued about what we want and need So, yeah, I have a script. It’ll be great. But I can’t keep worrying about that and hustling that because I wouldn’t have come up with Nuri and Yasir. I wouldn’t have helped launch Black Lightning. I have a lot more stories in me. Begging someone to see the value of Girlfriends, I can’t do it anymore.

Where does this unapologetic attitude come from?

The unapologetic attitude is a combination of not ever giving a shit and standing up for what you feel is right even if it makes you look bad. When I first started my career, I didn’t mean to represent Asian-Americans because I didn’t want my Asian-ness to define me. My first ever show was at Sarah Lawrence College and a young woman came up to me and thanked me for “showing her it was possible.” That moment never left me, and it was then that I realized that whether I like it or not, my actions will affect my people. I will always use my platform to fight for what’s right, and that includes walking out of auditions for one dimensional roles and standing up against ignorance from people who could potentially employ you. All my life, I’ve surprised people simply by interacting with them. By simply being me, I changed traditional attitudes on what people expect Asian women to be.
