Over the weekend, LaToya Tonodeo, who plays Diana Tejada revealed on his Instagram Live that Diana’s whole reaction to the news of Lorenzo’s death was cut out. According to Tonodeo, Diana did a lot of crying, but a lot of it cut. For example, per Tonodeo, after the sex scene between Diana and Salim Ashe Freeman asks her to be his girlfriend, and she agrees after a back and forth about not being sure when Monet Tejada calls a few times, Diana ignores it and then finally since she saw that she kept calling she figured that it was necessary, so then she answered it.
“After the sex scene he’s asking me to be his girl and I’m not sure and then I finally say yes. So, we become a couple then Monet is calling me and I’m ignoring her call, I’m not picking up the phone. Then I fianlly, I’m like f*** I should answer it,” said Tonodeo.
“And I answer the call and then she tells me and I’m balling crying like what happened in real life because when we finished that scene I couldn’t stop crying because of the trigger that I used to cry. All of it and they didn’t even use it and I was like are you kidding me.”
