Tichina Arnold on her career’s longevity:
“I’m definitely blessed to BE doing the same thing that I’ve loved & that I’ve BEen raised up with & that’s show business. To continue to BE in show business and to still have a body of work to display my talents & my gifts is just a blessing in & of itself. I’m just really happy that I’ve BEen doing it for over 30 years…I’ve BEat a lot of odds.”
Tichina Arnold looking back on the impact that ‘Little Shop of Horrors’ had:
“That truly was an experience for a little black 15 year old girl from Queens. We didn’t think back then that ‘Little Shop of Horrors‘ would BE a big hit.

Little Shop of Horrors didn’t catch on to years later & it’s shocking to know that to this day, people & kids still like it. It’s like it still almost has a cult following.”
Tichina Arnold on fighting Lupis:
“My sister, she actually has Lupis, she actually has 7 diseases, so she has committed herself to working for Lupis & with the Lupis Foundation of America. I see how it affects her life & I had to get involved. We were traveling and when she [Tichina’s sister] was diagnosed with Autoimmune Disease, we had to catch a flight for an appearance & I’m walking thru the x-ray & I turn around & I’m talking to her & when I turn around and look at her, she’s just looking at me crazy. I’m like come on, let’s go & she says, ‘I can’t tie my shoe”. I had to walk back through the x-rays, so something as small as tying your own shoe can affect those with Lupis. That really had an affect on me…”
