Getting All the Longevity Tea with Our Fave Fabulous Auntie, Vanessa Bell Calloway
We’ve loved legendary actress Vanessa Bell Calloway since, like, forever. From Coming to America to What’s Love Got to Do With It?, Calloway has wowed us on the big screen. Now she’s on the small screen, starring in BounceTV’s Saints and Sinners — she even directed an episode. She paid us a visit to talk longevity in Hollywood, her squad of girlfriends (which includes Tina Lawson and Cookie Johnson), staying fabulous in your 60s, and secrets to her 30-year marriage. Plus, we talk Kanye’s slavery comments, Kelis dishing on Nas, and the Bill Cosby verdict. #yesgirlpodcast Yes, Girl! hosts: Cori Murray @corimurray; Charli Penn @ManWifeDog; and Yolanda Sangweni @yolizama Producer: Steven Psyllos @stevenpsyllos Audio engineer: Chiquita Pascal @ChiquitaPaschal Music: Gold Standard Creative @gscdotnyc
