LeToya Delivers In “Second Generation Wayans”

LeToya Luckett as 'Rochelle' on 2nd Generation Wayans

“Does ‘Second Generation Wayans’ Deliver?

This is this question Ebony Magazine‘s “Entertainment & Culture” writer Michael Arceneaux posed in his review of the new BET comedy. The show stars Damien Dante Wayans, Craig Wayans, George Gore III, and Tatyana Ali, but LeToya is posed to be the break-out star of the show. Read what he has to say about LeToya’s performance below.

So far, the most hilarious thing about the show is former Destiny’s Child member LeToya Luckett. Luckett, who’s been quietly building her acting resume in recent years, plays Rochelle, the mother of Craig Wayans’ son.

Admittedly, her character is a familiar trope many would understandably like to see go away – the baby mama from hell. If nothing else, LeToya plays the character well and flexes surprising comedic chops, particularly when she dismisses criticism over her son with Craig calling her by her first name with “I don’t need to advertise I’m somebody’s mama. My son knows who I am.” She’s the breakout star of this show, proving once again that the Houston, Texas native knows how to make an impression when given the right opportunity.

Be sure to watch the premiere of Second Generation Wayans TONIGHT at 10:30/9:30c pm on BET!
