Essence cover

10 Mar, 2014

longLong covers the April issue of Essence and talks about her son being disappointed after auditioning for his first role.

I was so nervous Massai wouldn’t get the job. I didn’t want to have to break disappointing news, so I explained to him that as long as he gave it his best that’s all that mattered. I also told him that life has highs and lows, wins and losses. Just as I was saying all this, the phone rang. It was my agent with the good news. We did the happy dance and started packing our bags.
