Each week, Hit The Floor creator James LaRosa provides us with some photos from his personal archive to give us a look at life on the set of the show. This week he shares with us some hilarious shots with McKinley Freeman and Tichina Arnold, some gossip about Sommore’s roast of Derek Roman, and a very Game Of Thrones-like pic of himself in the roasting chair. Read on for some great backstage gossip now!
Roman Family Therapy isn’t going so well here. LOVE LOVE LOVE Tichina Arnold. So down to earth, but so f***ing talented. I’ve loved her since Little Shop of Horrors. She was the perfect person to play Mary Roman, who comes by on a rare occasion to get a basketball signed to flip online for a designer bag. Ah, a mother’s love. When Mary starts talking about all the things she was there for in Derek’s childhood and the list amounted to one thing, that suuuucked to watch. Poor Derek. My mother has a little crush on McKinley and was pissed at me for how this episode ended. She might’ve been a little upset that I named Mary after her. Oh well, if Derek can get by without a mama, so can I.
