Tonight will kick-off a new season of OWN’s popular comedy series from Tyler Perry, “For Better or Worse.” Featuring NAACP Image Award nominated actress Tasha Smith, the two back-to-back episodes will air tonight at 9pm and 9:30pm ET/PT.
“For Better or Worse,” about the ups and downs of dating and marriage, centers on Angela Williams (played by actress Tasha Smith), the owner of a successful beauty salon, and her husband of 13 years, Marcus (played by Michael Jai White) who is a former professional football player. The series is based on Perry’s 2007 film Why Did I Get Married? and its 2010 sequel Why Did I Get Married Too? Led by the comical, over-the-top antics of Marcus and Angela Williams, the ensemble follows three couples: Marcus and Angela, Joseph and Leslie, and Richard and Keisha who are at various stages of their relationships as they go through the ups-and-downs of married life and dating.
If you tuned in last season, it ended with Angela convinced that her husband, Marcus, is having an affair. From relationships, to business partnerships, to stalkers – this season promises to be far from uneventful. With all of the lines crossing in love and life, it makes it difficult for everyone to keep their business and private lives from mingling.
Starring the vivacious and outgoing actress Tasha Smith, most notable for her work in films, you’ll get to see this New Jersey born actress BRING IT on the television screen for another season. Tasha Smith is a multifaceted actress whose work brings style and intensity to the subjects she plays on the big and small screens. She earned an NAACP Image Award nomination as “Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series.” Smith’s memorable portrayal of ‘Angela,’ in Perry’s box office hits, WHY DID I GET MARRIED? and its sequel, WHY DID I GET MARRIED, TOO?, alongside Janet Jackson and Jill Scott, sparked the creation of the spin-off series. Smith has co-starred in the #1 box office film, JUMPING THE BROOM (Columbia), starring Paula Patton, Laz Alonso and Angela Bassett. She also appeared in COUPLES RETREAT, ATL, THE GOOD MOTHER, THE WHOLE TEN YARDS and THE LONGSHOTS.
In addition to her work on the big screen, Smith is well-known for her extensive work on the small screen; most notably, her critically-acclaimed portrayal of the drug-addicted, ‘Ronnie Boyce,” in HBO’s Emmy Award-winning mini-series, “THE CORNER”; directed by Charles S. Dutton. Smith has also guest starred on numerous popular television shows such as; NIP/TUCK; MEET THE BROWNS; THE GAME; GIRLFRIENDS; ALL OF US; WITHOUT A TRACE; and STRONG MEDICINE; among others.
On and off the big and small screen, Tasha Smith seems to naturally command attention. She takes time to share her inspirational life story through motivational speaking, as well as mentoring emerging actors through the Tasha Smith Actors Workshop (TSAW). Her latest venture is as a beauty entrepreneur, where she has partnered with a top chemist to develop her new fragrance, US. Her mission is to make her fragrance affordable and available to local merchants directly within the community.
