Terrence Howard Gives An Update On Jussie Smollett
Loni Love: You have a personal relationship with Jussie. How is he doing and when was the last time you spoke?
Terrence Howard: Well, I spoke to him about three weeks ago and he’s holding up pretty well. He still feels as if he was mistreated by the political system, by the criminal justice system. You’re innocent until proven guilty, but he feels he’s been convicted, based on, you know…
Amanda Seales: The court of public opinion.
Terrence: The court of public opinion, and I think that I can see where he stands with that. And he’s holding up as best as any man can under these circumstances and one of the things I’ve tried to remind him is – if you’ve done everything you can to avoid a circumstance or a situation, then apparently you are in that situation because there is something either you or the world is supposed to learn from it. So deal with it with as much grace as you possibly can.
Tamera Mowry-Housley: Wow! Those are wise words.
Amanda: Ok, drop a gem on ‘em! That was a gem drop.
