Nikki Baheri Confirms Sleepy Hollow Tea


During season two of Sleepy Hollow star of the show Nikki Beharie was NOT invited to record voiceover commentary for the second season DVD box set [click here if you missed that] and was later killed off at the end of season three [click here if you missed that].

Nikki confirms there was some funny stuff going on...

In a new interview promoting her stint as host for the current season of AfroPopDocs Nikki admits,
"There’s a whole history behind that, that goes back to the very first year. It’s kind of one of those hieroglyphic, look at the puzzle pieces kind of thing. You know? Diehard fans know what’s been going on, I’ll say [my leaving] was mutual, sure."

This reminds me of the Lauryn Hill situation. Nicole does herself no favors when she's allegedly rude to staff, but it seems like the Fox publicists did everything they could to make her look bad. They allegedly even told her the wrong call times so she'd show up late. (Her agent went to Fox corporate with proof so you see that story went away.)

It also seemed as though the writers were trying to marginalize her character. No one was feeling Ichabod's wife's storyline and really wanted to see the two leads have a relationship. It's like the writers didn't want it and couldn't stand the idea of it. Welp, we do know it aired on Fox and we know what they think of Black people...

@2:38 - Allegedly. But then how were they able to keep her on the set?

After the Thomas Gibson kicking incident, I put nothing past white folks on working on the set:

Imagine if a Black actor had kicked a white writer? He'd have been escorted off the set and blackballed. Virgil Williams had to go to HR and the EEOC and only THEN was anything done.

It's so funny how people will bend over backwards to explain away the bad behavior of a white actress but Nikki (who was wrong if she was being rude) gets no second chances or chill. How many chances did Katherine Heigl have? How many shows? She had to cross how many white producers AFTER she told Shonda Rimes that her material was "subpar." Miss me with that BS 3:20.

@4:13pm I definitely see your point, but it's clear now more than ever that there is a double standard when it comes to white vs. black actors in hollyweird. Cue Isaiah Washington, Caseys Affleck and Nate Parker Robert Downey Jr. (Let's talk about the # of chances he had).

I also remember reading about Nikki being a problem on set from another blog. Not saying it's right but it is what it is.

Pull the same shit on her they do with all actors who push back against a network with sexism and racism, try to demonize her. She stood her ground and left that bs behind. End of story.

Hollywood doesn't like any women that stand up for themselves. Hollywood is anti-woman and loves women that can be controlled and manipulated. This is why you have very few Meryl Streep's and Viola Davis's because older women are usually more sure of themselves and vocal and, add aging looks on top of it, Hollywood don't like that. They young, dumb, yet to come chickenheads like Disney starlets, Rihanna and the Jenner girls.

whataminit...I thought Hollywood was the utopia for everything progressive and liberal in the world.
Gays, Transgenders, women ..all the conservatives and republicans were bad .

All of Hollywood were a 110 percent behind Hillary for POTUS.
Surely they can't be be Anti-woman.

^Hunnaaaayyy Hillary has taken so many L's since she ran against Obama. Chii, she was never going to be president. There is an unedited utube clip of the Simpsons that foresaw all this

I saw an interview with her on Arsenio Hall show a few years back. Her demeanor was a bit off. I thought she was joking with Arsenio but now reading this and the comments maybe a rude person is really who she is.

Sleepy Hollow was a show about DEMONS
I'm glad Niki left the show, she knew
that shit was wrong.

Here we go with the black woman bashing, rumor-mongering and flat out lies. And I bet that none of you keyboard monkeys ever jump on a blog to bash any white actresses. Cowards. Good luck to Ms. Beharie - she's beautiful and the show's not the same without her.
