Apologizes to police


Henson apologizes to the Glendale Police Department for her allegations that the police had racially profiled her son.

I would like to publicly apologize to the officer and the Glendale Police Department. A mother’s job is not easy and neither is a police officer’s. Sometimes as humans WE over react without gathering all of the facts. As a mother in this case I over reacted and for that I apologize. Thank you to that officer for being kind to my son.

No Good Deed

Film Appearance

In this drama directed by Sam Miller, Henson plays Terri, a devoted wife and mother of two, who lives an ideal life that takes a dramatic turn when her home and children are threatened by a charming stranger who smooth talks his way into her house claiming car trouble. Co-starring Idris Elba, Lesslie Bibb and Kate Del Castillo. Asked she would open a door to a stranger:

No! ( laughs ) And I say that because of the way my house is situated if I’m all the way upstairs. I’m not coming downstairs. I don’t care how fine you are. I don’t like unexpected guests anyway. So I’m like why are you ringing my door bell when you see all the other houses on the block? Why mine? So no, I wouldn’t.

Here is the thing. I never mix business with pleasure. I’m saying this to the young girls out there. Whatever you do in your private life should be just that private. You know if you a hoe girl be a hoe behind the scenes. Seriously, I mean that because if you’re having sex with them. Why would they ever want to work with you again. Think about it.
