Tyler Perry is back with For Better or Worse. In the new television series, Tasha Smith and Michael Jai White reprise their roles as the hot-headed, no-nonsense Angela and her “Please Baby, Let Me Explain” husband Marcus from the popular Why Did I Get Married movies. Upscale sat down with the onscreen duo to get their takes on love, life, laughter, the lessons in between—and the mistakes that they’ve learned to never make again.
Still riding high off of the critical acclaim from For Colored Girls, Janet Jackson, 44, is fit, fabulous and finally at peace with herself. With her soon-to-be-released book on fitness and weight loss on the horizon, she’s spreading that love to girls and women everywhere.
