Getting to the Juicy Details
Recently Kontrol Magazine had the pleasure of catching up with actress, radio personality, and reality TV star; “Ms. Juicy”. You all may wake up to the sound of her voice every morning or may even have a glass of wine and watch her on television, but that is just a sample of who this little lady really is. Ms. Juicy Baby whose real name is Shirlene King Person, was born in Corsicana, Texas. Although she was born in Texas, she has dubbed herself as “Queen of Atlanta” This powerful woman has been a part of several community events and is currently expanding her brand and business and has over 19 years in the entertainment industry game.
Ms. Juicy is currently wearing many hats as she is heard on “The Rickey Smiley Morning Show” and is one of the stars of the reality TV show, “Little Women of Atlanta”. How does a woman that wears many hats keep it all together? “There are times that I am working all of the projects at one time. I do get tired, but I have to keep going and remember why I am doing this” she recounts. Ms. Juicy stated that it didn’t just start with the morning show though so she is used to the grind. “Rickey actually saw me in a stage play that I was in. He loves little people, so he invited me to come on to the show, and I have been with him for years now. I was actually on his TV show as well, “Rickey Smiley for Real”, and because of that, doing “Little Women of Atlanta” was not too much of a transition,” she stated. There are some actors and artist that do not like to watch the things that they are in or even some that like to watch to critic themselves to find out what they’ve done wrong, or what they could’ve done better. Ms. Juicy stated that she likes to watch her work however, “I like to watch when the world watches. It’s always interesting to see when all the editing is done, and the final cuts come out. This season on “Little Women of Atlanta” I will definitely be involved more. You will see me take on a bigger role in which I help a lot of the ladies get their stuff together, and of course there will be drama and it is interesting to see how I deal with the drama.”
