Tracee Ellis Ross Addresses Blackish Rumors


Last week there were rumors actress Tracee Ellis Ross was considering scaling back her role on the ABC hit show Blackish after realizing her pay was considerably less than her co-star Anthony Anderson [click here if you missed that].

Tracee sets the record straight...


Fun act: Anthony Anderson is also an executive producer on the show.

Aside from his role as executive producer, Anthony Anderson is the LEAD ACTOR and narrates the entire show. That alone warrants his higher salary. He obviously spends more hours in the studio and on set because his scope of work is entails more than hers as a supporting role.

She’s trying it. Equal pay needs to make sense and have some hard data to back it up. You can’t just be crying equal pay just cuz you’re a woman and the whole movement is big now.

Tracey don’t mess up a good things we’ve seen too many sitcoms and shows go to waiste because of the cast members gets a big head.

Maybe if she had used her Jewish father’s name she would have received more money,

She's not bad; however, is she really that great of an actress anyway?

How did her private shit get out like that? I'm starting to not be brainwashed by the bullshit. THEY DO NOT TREAT BLACK WOMAN FAIRLY, ANYWHERE!

She needs to keep her mouth shut... only reason she is on the show is because of her last name. She is not that good of an actress.

@8:22 AM, I agree with the part where Anthony has a larger part on that series which does warrant more money. However women deserve equal pay, institutions all across America women are getting paid less for doing the same job as men, that shit I do not agree with, I also think actress need to be paid the same as an actor when they are in a movie or sitcom together. In this case though I understand the pay difference, Tracee has already proven herself being part of a successful ensemble cast in girlfriends, which I wish they would do a reboot and has been involved in numerous projects, in front and behind the scene, so her status as an professional actress is not in question and ain't got shit to do with her last name, she stands on her own merit. Tracee you might want to fall back on this one, don't let this current bandwagon largely by racist attention whoring white women, which I never take seriously anyway's as the vast majority of them voted for Trump and tried to get Roy Moore a pedophile elected to office, which bitches are bipolar and are not even to be taken seriously, white supremacy still stands because they uphold and embrace it. How many white bitches you have ever worked with that was racist, entitled fake ass feminist.

If I'm reading correctly, she clarifies that the narrative in the original article that started the rumors is FALSE. She never took issue with her salary in comparison to her costar. She's saying that the show is successful and (as many actors in television do once the show is a proven hit) she's renegotiating her contract. People will make a negative out of any and every thing. Smh

She should save her coins to produce her own show or reboot Girlfriends.

Why is this bug eyed woman famous?

@ 11:36 It's equal pay for EQUAL work. Women may have the same job as a man but their role is different. There will never be equal pay because EVERYONE'S ROLE IS ALWAYS DIFFERENT. I make more than some men at my job and some make more than me. It is, what it is. Here's a question would she (or does any woman) complain when they make more than their male counterparts? Because that's true equality, voicing it when's it's the other way around not just when it's beneficial for them (women) or do they just wanna have their cake, eat it too and not get fat? Doesn't work like that.

Just an observation said...

Traci looks good! I wonder who's hair is longer, hers or Beyoncé. 😄

Side note: Where is my phony pony? I'm doing this look today, baby.
