See 'Black-ish' star Tracee Ellis Ross on 'Essence' covers
Tracee Ellis Ross is perhaps best known for her role as Joan on Girlfriends. This year, however, she’s come back into the spotlight with Black-ish, playing Rainbow on ABC’s freshman comedy, created by Kenya Barris.
Now, she’s on the cover of Essence for its March split-cover issue, discussing her career and comedy upbringings: “I grew up watching Carol Burnett and Lucy,” Ross told EW. “They taught me that you can be glamorous and gorgeous and still be roll-in-the-mud funny. Realizing that one didn’t take away from the other gave me the license and freedom to do what I’m doing today.” Keep on doing it, Ross.
