THE PART SHE PLAYED
LisaRaye, in fact, knew Jesseca before Da Brat did. She opened up about this during her interview with MadameNoire.

LisaRaye admitted she’s happy for her sister to have found the person she can be herself with and share it with the world.
“When you’re happy, you’re happy to share that news with anybody...you’re not trying to hide that kind of happy news. So I’m glad she’s living in her truth.”
THE PERFECT MAN FOR HER

While LisaRaye is still finding that perfect man, she’s been doing her part to help in the fight against COVID-19.
Describing what her potential mate should be, LisaRaye hopes he’s God-fearing, a good provider, and leader of the family. She also wants a man who’s generous in all sense of the word - generous with his feelings, financially, with family, and when communicating.
LisaRaye added that since she’s a businesswoman, she expects her potential other half to be a businessman who’s smart and can teach her new things. “That’s a turn on for me,” she confessed.
More importantly, LisaRaye would like a man to be loyal to her and have eyes only for her. “I’m older now. I don’t have time to be playing. I don’t want to be a notch on your belt. I want us to grow in love.” she explained
RESPONDING TO THE HEALTH CRISIS
While LisaRaye is still finding that perfect man, she’s been doing her part to help in the fight against COVID-19. The actress, through her mattress line, Sleep Black, donated mattresses to a couple of hospitals.
She also developed a line of mattresses that could easily be disinfected. The mattresses are wrapped in rubber or silicone so they can instantly be wiped down and reused.
