Queen Latifah says it is “surreal” that Chris Noth will no longer appear on The Equalizer following sexual assault allegations against him.
“It is such a dicey, delicate situation that requires a great deal of respect,” Latifah told People. “That’s a personal thing that he’s going to have to deal with.” Noth starred as ex-CIA agent William Bishop who was an old friend of Robyn McCall, portrayed by Latifah.
“Chris’ character’s obviously a big part of the show, and it was amazing chemistry, amazing chemistry,” the Emmy winner added. “And my feeling is justice has to prevail, regardless. I just want the right things to be done, you know?
In other news, Meagan Good tells xoNecole.com that divorcing Devon Franklin is “the most painful thing I’ve ever experienced in my life.” After nine years of marriage, the Harlem TV series star and the preacher announced their divorce in December.
“Still grieving, still hurt,” Good added. “It’s going to be a long time, but at the end of the day it has made God, even more, my lover and even more my husband, and even brought our relationship to new depths and new heights so I’m in gratitude for that.”
