Quinta Brunson to Sit Down in Conversation With Oprah Winfrey
Abbott Elementary creator and EBONY's 2022 Power 100 Entertainment Powerhouses awardee Quinta Brunson is slated to sit down in conversation with Oprah Winfrey for a new special. Set to air on OWN, the two will discuss Brunson's success and how her relationship with her husband never required her to "dim her light."
"To be 100% fully me requires a lot of stuff that a lot of men do not have time for," Brunson said in a clip. "My husband, that's what I mean by him being the biggest support, that there is no need to dim me at all. That allows me to love him fully and be the person that I want to be, and am meant to be."
