Actress/producer Issa Rae is gearing up for the new season of her hit TV show Insecure. But she's caught up now, in a new controversy. One of the actors she worked with on her previous show, is spilling tea on Issa.
The tea that her former co-star is spilling, is that Issa is "fake" and a "bitch." Before Issa was on HBO, she had a web series and her love interest was a character named Fred. The actor is on his Facebook page calling her out.
Apparently Madison and a few other people that helped Issa create the show Awkward Black Girl never got the recognition when the show was rebranded Insecure and picked up by HBO.
Issa is known for having a "difficult" personality in Hollywood. She also reportedly has a short fuse, and a very detail oriented personality. But Issa is also known for having a good heart. She is one of the most loved players in Los Angeles.
Here's the guy spilling the tea:
As a child, Rae lived in Potomac, Maryland, where she grew up with "things that aren't considered 'black,' like the swim team and street hockey and Passover dinners with Jewish best friends." When she was in sixth grade, her family moved to the affluent View Park-Windsor Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles where she attended a predominantly black middle school where Rae said she was "berated for 'acting white'" and initially found it difficult to "fit into this 'blackness' I was supposed to be." Rae graduated from King Drew Magnet High School of Medicine and Science, where she started acting. Her parents divorced when she was in high school.
