Venida Evans

Evans told The Detroit News, “Baby, it’s a roller coaster ride. But I’m having a lot of fun… There have been a lot of ups and downs. But suddenly I’m experiencing a real up-kick, which is scary but exciting.”

On May 21, 2009, she also appeared on ABC’s Who Wants To Be A Millionaire winning $8000.

Evans referred to herself as a “flavor of the month” in a 2009 interview with The Detroit News.  She was referring specifically to the sudden interest in her career after working as an actress for more than thirty years.
