Star of hit TV show The Haves and Have Nots visits NYC for Fashion Week
Fans know Angela Robinson for the devilishly manipulative role she plays as Veronica Harrington; a high powered Savannah, Georgia attorney with a dark and shady past. Don't you just love it? Ms. Robinson comes to this role as a seasoned performer with a list of credits for her work on stage, screen and film. Many may remember this award winning actress for her Broadway performance as Shug Avery in the play The Color Purple. She’s also had prior movie roles and has appeared in the long running hit television show Law and Order Special Victims Unit.
While I waited to gain access into the collections at Vanderbilt Hall, I was gabbing on the phone when suddenly this statuesque beauty appeared in front of me with two escorts. Since it is Fashion Week, I have to talk about the clothes. She wore a stunning floor length, short sleeved pumpkin spice jersey knit wrap dress, auburn streaked hair with wispy bangs and a pop of cinnamon lip gloss. I instantly dropped my call (translation: hung up the phone immediately), then gently approached her for a selfie request and a photo. After all, she plays Veronica - right? I can tell you now folks, Angela Robinson is nothing like the character “Veronica” she plays on “The Haves and the Have Nots”. Not that I thought she ever would be. She graciously indulged me in conversation, humor and most importantly her time. And, she looked fabulous doing it! But of course, it’s New York Fashion Week! #NYFW.
