You could argue that the woman on the recording didn't really set up the man on the recording; instead, she let events play out in a way that seemed quite characteristic for the Clippers owner.

LISARAYE MCCOY MISICK: Offering up Some 'Gossip, Lies & Secrets' with Kenya Moore and Blu Cantrell on the Chit'lin Circuit.

Comments (13)

By Karu F. Daniels, AOL Black Voices

(l-r) LisaRaye McCoy-Misick, Kenya Moore and Blu Cantrell set to star in the urban theater musical stageplay 'Angela Dunlap's Gossip, Lies & Secrets' this fall.

She may have had an extravagant Caribbean wedding -- one fit for royalty -- in Turks & Caicos, but that doesn't stop LisaRaye McCoy-Misick from getting down to the nitty gritty when it comes to her work.

The 'Player's Club' actress, whose CW sitcom 'All of Us' was recently canceled, is getting back into the swing of things with a lead role in the upcoming chit'lin circuit stageplay 'Angela Dunlap's Gossip, Lies & Secrets.'

Former Miss USA and actress Kenya Moore and one-time platinum-selling R&B singer Blu Cantrell joins McCoy-Misick in a tantalizing tale about three entertainment industry-related women bound by an unspoken commitment to be each other's confidant and best friend.

After a string of bad investments, distracting relationships, and dead end writing jobs, authoress Sydney St. Croix (McCoy-Misick) finds herself at the end of her financial rope and needs to round up her "partners in crime." Her solution: call her friends and get together for their ritual "sister girl sessions," where "no holds barred" secrets are revealed and boundaries are crossed.

After an evening of sharing intimate and sometimes incriminating confessions and secrets, the ladies renew their weekly pact to "never tell another soul" about what has occurred.


All of that is fine and dandy until the ringleader gets her big break after being approached by a major publisher who commissions her to write a novel.

It is in that moment of sheer desperation that she makes a plot-twisting decision to save her career by breaking the sacred pact of her friends and divulge her best friends' (one an R&B diva, the other a TV star) innermost secrets... all of them.

Popular character actor Clifton Powell, former R&B singer and sex symbol Christopher Williams, urban theater sensation Patrice Lovely ('When A Woman's Fed Up' and 'Men, Money & Golddiggers') and husband and wife chit'lin circuit veterans Lia and Tony Grant round out the cast of 'Gossip, Lies & Secrets.'

Dunlap is an acclaimed writer, director and producer who helmed the hit stageplays, 'If These Hips Could Talk,' which starred legendary actor Billy Dee Williams and Tichina Arnold, and one of the highest grossing stageplays of all time, 'Why Good Girls Like Bad Boyz?'

The show kicks off Sept. 29 in Newark, New Jersey and will play 15 cities in total before wrapping up in Detroit during Thanksgiving week.
