Rutina Wesley appeared today on the ‘The Wendy Williams Show’, where she chatted with Wendy about her role on True Blood. She also discussed the identity mix-up at this year’s Emmy-awards. Regina King was confused for Rutina, and King was so offended that she fired off an open letter blasting the Emmy people.
Rutina commented: “It’s funny to me that we would be mixed up, as we look nothing alike. It’s a Hollywood thing, though, and people need to be very careful of that.” Wendy added: “We as black people say ‘we don’t all look alike’.”
