Tasha Smith is best known for playing Angela on Tyler Perry's TV series, "For Better or Worse" (OWN), as well as for her work in Perry's box-office hits "Why Did I Get Married?" and "Why Did I Get Married, Too?" She has certainly played the reactive woman onscreen, but the actress, acting teacher, and entertainment manager takes umbrage at the "angry black woman" stereotype often perpetuated by reality TV shows. Soon you can see Smith -- who has conquered addiction herself -- in feature film "Addicted."

What can you tell us about "Addicted"? That movie is based on Zane's book "Addicted." She writes a lot of sexy black novels that are really explicit. This one is about a woman, played by Sharon Leal, who's dealing with a sex addiction. She's a beautiful woman who was abused in her past, but basically she's trying to deal with her addiction, because it's about to destroy her marriage and her relationship with her children and her job.

Spruce up your PC for spring with these top apps

Posted: 28 Mar 2014 11:25 AM PDT

Every machine needs tune-ups, and that includes your PC. Without regular cleaning and updates, your system performance suffers, slowed down by hefty files and unneeded software. Fortunately, many fine -- and free! -- utilities can do the system spring cleaning for you. Here's a roundup of our favorites.


CCleaner is one of our go-to, no-nonsense Registry cleaners. It scans your PC for junk files, unnecessary Registry entries, and unused cookies. It's good practice to run these scans at least once a month.

Revo Uninstaller

Revo Uninstaller is an alternate uninstallation utility for Windows. What it lacks in speed it makes up for in completion. Revo not only removes programs via default uninstallation, but it also performs a scan deeper than the stock Windows remover to uncover any renegade file crumbs left behind.

Should I Remove It?

Sometimes you have no idea whether you should remove a program or not. Should I Remove It is a good resource for determining which programs to remove, especially if you're confused about "extra" bundles in the form of adware toolbars.
