Diva Database: Tasha Smith

The 2007 World Talent Style Lounge Portraits

Most divas are known for “keepin’ it real.” Few do it better than Tasha Smith as Angela in Tyler Perry’s “Why Did I Get Married?” and now the TV spin off, “For Better or For Worse.” She has a knack for saying what most people won’t and loudly, for maximum impact, which makes her roles in movies like “Daddy’s Little Girls” and “Jumping the Broom” so memorable. She earned critical acclaim opposite Charles Dutton in the HBO series “The Corner.” In real life, Tasha Smith is a diva with a head for business. She runs a well-known acting workshop, has her own line of wigs and created a unisex fragrance with her husband called “Us.”
