I was sitting at home when I had the most random thought, 'Where in the world is Ananda Lewis?' Don't ask me where that thought came from. It's not like I was watching an old episode of Teen Summit or something. It was seriously just a random thought.
I mean seriously, I can't be the only person who misses this sista. Before Free, LaLa Vasquez, the girl hosting 106th and Park now (I seriously can't think of her name right now), Ananda Lewis was the woman holding down the Veejay landscape. She was the sista from Howard University that was holding it down on BET during the time when it was actually safe for your self esteem to watch the channel. She was the beautiful intelligent female that all the brothers wanted and all the sistas wanted as one of their girlfriends. Ananda was seriously that chick that always represented us well and man do I miss her.
Ananda served as the host of BET's 'Teen Summit' for three years before moving to MTV. She left MTV in 2001 in order to start her own talk show, 'The Ananda Lewis Show'. I must say I had high hopes for her talk show, but unfortunately it only lasted one season.
So, can someone please tell me what's up with Ananda Lewis and why we don't see her on TV anymore? Her presence is sorely missed.
