If you will allow me to digress here for a second, this film answers a question I've had for some time. Whatever happened to Rolonda Watts? Now any of you who watch soap operas will know that she was a regular on the soap Days of Our Lives for 8 years. (I don't so I did't) But I remember her for completely something else.

A Mother's Love

If you will allow me to digress here for a second, this film answers a question I've had for some time. Whatever happened to Rolonda Watts? Now any of you who watch soap operas will know that she was a regular on the soap Days of Our Lives for 8 years. (I don't so I did't) But I remember her for completely something else.

You see, during in the mid-90's she had a syndicated talk show, back when they were looking everywhere for another Oprah. Now her show wasn't all the memorable or groundbreakiong. It only lasted one season. But I have to confess that I used to watch it all the time.

The reason why was basically because Rolonda would wear the shortest skirts that anyone was wearing on TV at the time. Couldn't help it. Had to watch it to see how she was going to tease me that day. Come to think of it, I don't think she ever sat down once on the show during its entire run. The television might have exploded

But at least she's still acting and doing a lot of voiceover work though I'm sure her taste in clothes is more consevartive nowadays, but then again maybe not. According to Imdb she has another film coming out this year Return to Babylon in which she plays Josephine Baker. I must assume that in the film she'll be wearing something more revealing than a short skirt

But to get to the point she's now in the inde film A Mother's Love which Magnolia Home Entertainment is releasing on DVD on April 24th 

Co-written and directed by Tim Alexander, the man who gave us Diary of a Tired Black Man, a film that believe it or not I have yet to see but so dying to, Watts plays "Regina Reynolds is a strong black woman in the truest sense! But her taste for the good life didn't necessarily include her husband Marcus or her daughter Monica. It truly takes "A Mother's Love" from Georgia to pray her down to earth".

I mean how can you not see a film like that? But here's the trailer which in an odd way strikes me more like skit for the old MAD TV show
