Exclusive Interview: M.J. Fièvre (“A Sky the Color of Chaos”)

One of my favorite times of year in South Florida is November, when the Miami Book Fair International rolls into town. This year, M.J. Fièvre debuted her new book, A Sky the Color of Chaos, a memoir detailing her tumultuous childhood in Haiti and her journey towards understanding her father.

I was excited to learn more about Fièvre’s book and her writing process, and in this in-depth email interview, you can also learn more about Fièvre’s literary process, what she hopes the book teaches readers, and how she came to better understand her father and herself.

A Sky the Color of Chaos is avaiable from Beating Winward Press and can be bought at outlets like Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Books-a-Million.

Exclusive Interview: Necar Zadegan (“Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce”)

Bravo’s Girlfriends Guide to Divorce is coming back for a second season Dec. 1, and Necar Zadegan, who plays divorce attorney Delia, has given fans a sneak peek at some of the season’s drama in this exclusive interview with COLOR.

Zadegan, known for her roles on RakeEmily Owens, M.D., Masters of Sex, Archer and Extant, is having tons of fun playing the smart-dressing divorce lawyer who is now grappling with a realm outside of her divorce-filled life; weddings and marriage. I was happy to speak with Zadegan about her role as Delia, what’s on the horizon for the character, and her interaction with the show’s fans. Returning fans already know the score, but for new fans coming to the show, get prepared for some fun, some fashion, and some humor. As Zadegan said herself, “They’re friends who buy makeup and wear great clothes and carry great bags and in the interim, comedy ensues. That’s the season in a nutshell.”

It goes without saying that Donald Trump being anywhere near a highly popular show like Saturday Night Live would cause friction, particularly after his horrifying statements on Mexicans during the early part of his campaign. The statements caused him to get fired from NBC. But NBC basically recanted on their stance against racist and discriminatory speech by allowing him to come back to host Saturday Night Live. But that’s not the only way the show mocked the anger many Latinos have towards Trump for his prior statements.
