    DONT ASK TAYE ABOUT HIS WHITE WIFE!!!

    By L.T. Dinwiddie
    When Taye was recently questioned in an interview with Rolling Out magazine about his non-black wife – Idina Menzel, things turned down right hostile. Diggs, who burst on the scene in 1998 in How Stella Got Her Groove Back, was instantly the new black “it” guy of moment. His clean cut look and boy next door appeal set women’s hearts on fire.

    Taye, who was virtually an unknown actor before the popular novel of the same name came to the big screen. Had already been a working stage performer in numerous plays like, Rent and Chicago. But, his eye-popping performance in Stella, where Taye played the character of Winston Shakespeare, a twenty year old man who rejuvenates a much older woman’s idea on love and relationship, immediately made him a sex symbol. He followed up Stella with the surprisingly successful film –Best Man staring along side incredible actors like; Nia Long, Morris Chestnut, Terrence Howard, and Sanna Lathan.

    However, since the initial interest of those two films, many of his fans, particularly his females ones, have seemed to have moved on. Taye Diggs has had numerous acting and stage projects since his instant achievement of the late 90’s, but in his embarking on a new television venture – ABC’s DayBreak— the ratings reflected the cold hard fact that nobody cares what the “Welcome To Jamaica” star has to say or do.

    Though Taye is still trying to expand himself as an actor after two failed television series, a handful of slightly successful low budget films and his unnoticeable appearance on NBC’s – Will & Grace, where Taye played Will’s boyfriend. It doesn’t seem that he has been able to find a steady fan base or demographic to sustain his fleeting acting career.

    Many argue that Diggs has eliminated a large part of his fan base, which at the time was African American women, because of his off screen interracial marriage. While on the surface it appears that we live in a socially accepting society. When you scratch just one inch below the social surface you will find that interracial relationships are still very much taboo. At first Taye was reluctant to discuss his real life relationship. But, when word broke that the bright eye black stallion was dating then, girlfriend –Tony Award-winning stage actress Idina Menzel, whom he met while co-starring with her in the 1996 play “Rent, the sisters immediately responded with a “no ma’am”.

    Taye’s marketability seemed to plummet rapidly over night. The loveable, handsome guy that many couldn’t get enough of turned into the man that people wanted to forget and fans quickly move on. Though it is uncertain what the future holds for Taye Diggs, what is certain is that he’s going to have to find a loyal audience if he is to keep any kind of bank ability in Hollywood. FULL STORY

    Please! Don't blame the sistas for his lack of success. We really don't care all that much. Could it be his acting skills are average? Could it be the roles he has taken on are subpar? No, it has to be that the sistas are keeping him down. He needs to take some acting classes and get a better agent.
