Cherise Nicole & Phylicia Rashad


Cherise Nicole (CNikky) and our associates EURweb caught up with the legendary Phylicia Rashad during the NBC TCA’s.  Ms. Rashad is most known as the most treasured mom on television as Claire Huxtable on the Cosby Show.  She has since been seen on Broadway, winning a Tony for her betrayal in A Raisin In The Sun, on Lifetime in the new adaptation of Steel Magnolias and on the big screen in films like Just Wright and For Colored Girls.  Now she is on a new show on NBC called “Do No Harm,” that debuts next Thursday, January 31st at 10pm.

The show is about a  brilliant neurosurgeon who has to battle his own alter-ego so that he can live a normal life.  Ms. Rashad plays a no nonsense Chief of the hospital that tries to keep the main character in line.


Her poise, grace and sophistication are un-matched and no one on television has come close to being as influential as Phylicia Rashad.  In addition to talking about the show, we asked Ms. Rashad “If she’s ever felt bad about herself and if so..how did she overcome her insecurities?”

“Loving oneself, isn’t hard, when you understand..who and what yourself is.  It has nothing to do with, the shape of your face, the size of your eyes, the length of your hair or the quality of your clothes.  It’s so beyond all of those things and it’s what gives life to everything about you.  Your own self is such a treasure.  You have to sit kind of quietly and ask, Who am I?  Who am I really?”

Love her forever!  She is such an inspiration.  I am truly honored.
