Now in its fourth season, the sequence is stuffed with familial drama, and included within the turmoil is Carissa (Demetria McKinney, Motherland: Fort Salem) who’s again and combating studying to belief once more. After changing into embroiled in lies and drama through her [now] husband Cameron, Carissa ended up behind bars after she was betrayed by somebody near her.
Now she’s out of jail and dealing on getting her prices dropped all whereas persevering with to battle her largest adversary, Alexis (LisaRaye McCoy, The Household Enterprise).
As season 4 of “A Home Divided” continues streaming on ALLBLK, Demetria Mckinney chatted with BOSSIP about Carissa persevering with to fire up drama amid all of the lies and deception on this surprising cleaning soap the place EVERYONE will get their palms soiled.
Let’s speak about season 4 of “A Home Divided” streaming on ALLBLK. An outline for this season says that the “saga continues and the truths are revealed whereas the household additional unravels”—how a lot of this unraveling is due to Carissa and her antics?
I imply, I don’t know why everybody retains making an attempt to make me out to be the dangerous man. I’m simply formidable, ambition is a should! Fact be informed, quite a lot of it [the drama] is due to her. Carissa is unquestionably a catalyst for lots of the issues taking place throughout the Sanders household. However as you see, a part of the drama that continues to unfold and the truths that proceed to disclose usually are not simply hers—there’s infants and stuff, there’s [problems with] the financial institution and stuff, however sure, Carissa has, has positively dabbled in all of their issues and created issues.
For many who don’t know, how would you describe Carissa? I really feel she’s a bada** and sort of rebellious.
She’s positively opposite to me. In a phrase; savage. I believe we’ve seen it within the and it resonates due to the reality. By any means crucial, by any neck crucial, Carissa is gonna get what she’s after and he or she thinks that she’s doing it outta love. That’s the chilly half, don’t let her love you!
Carissa’s largest adversary on “A Home Divided” is Alexis. How a lot of this battle between them are we gonna see in season 4?
, we’re gonna get little tidbits of it. I’ve been speaking to the creator of the present Dan Garcia and I keep in mind once they first informed me Alexis was approaching to be my nemesis, I used to be like, ‘Ya’ll higher decide the suitable one!’
I’m all in my bag as a result of I really feel like Carissa is “dangerous lady materials”, after which he Dan Garcia] says, LisaRaye and I’m like, ‘Ahhhh—okay! Alright, I’m cool. It’s cool!’ it was simply such nice power on set.
So I’m hoping we get to see an entire, complete, lot extra within the SEASONS to come back. You see how I’m placing that universe, already?
“A Home Divided” is the longest-running sequence on ALLBLK, why do you suppose that viewers maintain coming again for extra?
Half one is as a result of Dan Garcia has one thing completely different occurring in that nugget of his. I don’t know the place he comes up with these plots and these plot twists and the way he ties all of them collectively on this wonderful, cute, package deal however it’s so enjoyable to be part of and even watch afterward.
I believe the opposite half is, I believe folks actually simply join with the characters. there’s someone for everyone, whether or not you’re workforce Alexis, workforce Carissa; we’ve all been cheated on, we’ve all had these moments of indiscretion—they [the characters] simply level out so many realities in our actual life, however we don’t get any of the results for it.
We simply get to take a seat again and watch the chips fall the place they might and benefit from the fall the entire time.
Why do you suppose viewers are so into seeing not solely the Sanders household’s drama however their black wealth and legacy as properly?
As a result of I believe we oftentimes in historical past have gotten the brief finish of the stick so far as illustration. It’s at all times that we’re on the come up or we’re not making an attempt to come back up or we received a behavior or a child mama and it’s at all times amidst this backdrop of “want.”
So with the Sanders household, we received 99 issues however MONEY ain’t it. So it’s good to see folks up within the higher echelon nonetheless have points, it kinda makes us really feel like we now have the flexibility to attach with this different aspect that they’ve at all times sort of tried to cover from some mainstream media.
Networks like ALLBLK are right here as a result of we wanted a spot to place ourselves in our areas our manner. We’re telling the gamut of the story and I believe that’s the factor, I believe it’s lovely as a result of it sparks conversations like; ‘How will we create generational wealth just like the Sanders household?’ Let’s broaden our horizons!
“A Home Divided” season 4 is presently streaming on ALLBK.
