Malika believes this show will help her step out of her comfort zone and also help her surround herself around other actors! “One of my most challenging moves to date has been stepping out of my comfort zone,” stated Haqq in a recent interview. “At the same time, I know I need to grow and surround myself around other actors, so joining the cast of Divas seemed like a leap of faith in the right direction.”
“Hollywood Divas” will air this summer on TVOne where you can catch Malika and the rest of the Diva cast members.
