MALINDA

From acting to hosting, there seems to be no slowing down for Malinda Williams. The star recently sat down with Madame Noire (MN) to talk about her new show, ‘Exhale,’ that will feature herself alongside Rene Syler and Angela Burt-Murray discussing life’s issues.

Although she has been an actress for many years, Malinda told MN that she doesn’t mind breaking the mold to become a talk show host. “I’m at a point in my life and career that I feel I have something from my experience to share with others,” explained the star. “The world is changing daily. If you don’t know by now, the web has changed the game – every game. It’s changed everyone’s business. So I feel like if you’re not staying current and watching the changes in business, you’ll be left behind. As an entertainer, I have to meet people where they are. I’ll meet you in the theater, in your office, in your living room.”

In addition to hosting and co-producing ‘Exhale,’ Malinda also plans to do a bit of work with ex-husband Mekhi Phifer in the coming years. While many would have a hard time working with a former spouse, Williams told Madame Noire that co-parenting their son, Omikaye, has helped her reach a higher level of maturity in her and Mekhi’s relationship. “When you have a child, you should expect to be in the other parent’s life for a while, at least 18 years,” said the actress. “We weren’t going to spend the 18 plus years being miserable, so we got mature with who we were within our separation and when you do that you can say that what we have in common is far greater than what our differences could ever be.”

‘Exhale’ will premiere on the all new ASPiRE network later this year.

  1. I always think it strange that people become friends AFTER divorce. Like, couldn’t y’all have done this while you were married? Isn’t marriage about accepting your partner’s flaws and acknowledging that you have yours too, and deciding that you want to maneuver life around them, or perhaps smooth them out. I just don’t get how people only find patience with people after divorce.

    • Sometimes relationships begin one way and end another way. If we knew we were going to divorced before we married, certainly most of us would not. You go in hoping it works, but sometimes it doesn’t. The good thing is that these two adults made the decision to put their son ahead of their past marriage and work on building a strong parenthood for their son. I wish the best for them and thanks for showing this level of maturity that some people cannot comprehend.
