Cover Story: Tika Sumpter Rolls Out

Actress Tika Sumpter is looking extra sumptuous on the cover of Rolling Out Magazine. The 32 year old former “Gossip Girl” actress is making her most high profile big screen debut to date, appearing in the remake of the 1976 classic film “Sparkle,” set to hit movie theaters this Friday, August 17th.

Tika plays the role of Delores Williams, a part she says was beefed up by writer Mara Brock Akil. Whereas the original character of Delores in the 1976 film seem to be little more than an afterthought, Tika says her Delores will have an expanded role that will shock fans of the original.

Also on Tika’s plate is her upcoming co-starring role alongside Gabrielle Union in the upcoming BET original series “Being Mary Jane.”

The show’s pilot will air this fall, with the first season set to debut in January of 2013.


  1. This is the best I have seen her look. Usually she has on a horrid wig or bad weave. She is gorgeous in the above pics.

  2. Tika is a beautiful woman. I do like this type of hairstyle on her too.
    Here career is doing well and it is good to see all beautiful shades of us on the screen.

    She reminds me of how in shape I use to be….I’ve gotta get to the gym LOL
