So Vivica, would Frankie from Set It Off know the “procedure” for a good ole’ hater beat down?
The veteran actress has evolved from her days appearing in soaps and countless cameos including The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Martin, and Family matters.
Don’t forget her breakout roles in Independence Day and of course, Set It Off, where she played the brains behind the bank-robbing betties.
The 57-year-old has been a constant fixture on the Lifetime network perfecting her skills and versatility.
During the press run for the network’s Keeping Up With The Joneses, Fox admitted to concerns about working with the female-driven network.
“I will never forget when the Lifetime network came into my life, I got teased,” per KGET.
“What they didn’t realize was that they were the first network to offer me a starring series after ‘Kill Bill’ (“1-800-Missing”). I had to kind of go away and take myself back to the drawing board and have a resurgence in my career.”
Certain cable shows and select networks have been categorized in the past as dead landmarks for actors.
However, Lifetime gave Fox a bigger blessing. They have ‘helped cultivate her career in filmmaking, producing and lead actress.
Now in its second season, Fox says she’s grateful for LMN because they know their audience.
“Lifetime was the first network to give me my own series back in the day. And, my relationship with them has just really… They’ve turned me into a filmmaker, and I’m very grateful,” she said.
Speaking of grateful, the producer told 360 Baseline that she doesn’t mind playing her villainous character.
“Someone on Twitter sent me a message and said, ‘Oh my gosh Vivica Fox, I’ve seen you act for so many years, but this is one of the times that I hate you, and I love it.'”

“I’m very honest with my agents and my management team about roles that I don’t want to do, so they don’t even approach me with it,” she said about choosing her projects.
In 2000, X-Men debuted in theaters to Marvel fans’ delight. The film adaption is based on the comic book and popular animated series that appeared on Fox Network during the 90s.
Storm, the franchise-leading Black female character, is by far one of the most beloved. Fox says that’s one role she came close to getting. However, it was awarded to actress Halle Berry.
“The only role that I really wanted that I came close to getting was Storm, but they cast Halle Berry, she said. “She did an amazing job. So, I could say that was about the only one, yeah.”
No less, the multi-faceted entertainer no longer needs an introduction.
