STEPHANIE WILL "LOSE IT"

Givens told the entertainment site that Lancaster is already suspecting something's up, and she will confront her husband first. However, she doesn't make the connection to Bella right away. As Givens said:

"She genuinely thought Bella was a friend and that friends wouldn’t do that. Now, if you think about it, she’s already had a friend take a man from her. So Bella must be crazy.”

Robin implied that, when Stephanie finds out about the betrayal, she will lose all control.

"She finds it all out and all hell breaks loose, she told TV Insider. "And Stephanie is like a little tornado, you want to keep her calm, so I don't know what Bella was thinking."

THE CHALLENGE AS AN ACTRESS

For Givens, getting to play such a complex woman on screen has been a total delight and a challenge at the time.

According to the "Riverdale" star, the creator of "Ambition" conceived Stephanie as a heartless, cunning, and successful attorney that wasn't capable of being funny or vulnerable. It was Givens who changed that.

The actress believes that people always get put into a box, and there's an idea about how they would or wouldn't behave depending on the notion others have of them.

"I just wanted, literally, to kick out of that box," Givens said. "It was really important for me to shade her differently and I wanted people to enjoy her, even if they weren't always agreeing with her."

"Ambitions" airs Tuesdays nights on OWN.
