Erika Alexander Schools Us On Rising From Rejection + New Hulu Series: ‘Wu-Tang: An American Saga’
So, listen… Sadly, our Hot Girl Summer is on its way out. But we’re determined to hold onto every single ray of sunshine we soaked up for as LONG as we can! Speaking of sunshine --- THE Erika Alexander (@erikaalexanderthegreat) aka Maxine Shaw Attorney-At-Law (Living Single) aka Cousin Pam (The Cosby Show) graced the Yes, Girl! Podcast this week! Do y’all know how many Black women went to law school because of her?! Erika had us laughing, crying and nodding in agreement as she gave us the real-real about bouncing back from rejection in the entertainment industry, becoming an internationally-renowned creator, and her newest role playing The RZA’s mother on the new Hulu series ‘Wu-Tang: An American Saga’ (Go watch now! It’s incredible!). If you don’t already consider her a friend-in-your-head, you will once you hear her absolute humility, honesty, and hilarity on this episode.
