The key to a healthy diet for me is moderation and proportion. I’ve learned how to eat smaller portions to stay on track with my glucose levels. I also try to move a bit every day, even if it’s just a walk around my neighborhood, because that helps keep my glucose numbers down.

Yvette Nicole Brown on Politics, Mayor, Her faith, Diet
I always love how, in articles where you’ve talked about diet and exercise, you’re like, “I have a number I look at, my glucose number.” It’s not about weight or clothing size, but the state of your health.
Yvette Nicole Brown: Yeah, because that’s very vanity focused — you know, “How small is your waist? How big is your butt?” And no shade: That’s great if that’s what floats your boat, God bless. But I’m a simple kid from East Cleveland. I’ve never been the Halle Berry type, and I’m not trying to be Halle Berry. I’m just trying to lose the diabetes. I always make sure I make that distinction because I was fine being chubby.
Yvette Nicole Brown: Did I hit you with feels? [Laughs.]
I’ve followed you on Twitter for years, and you’ve always spread a message of kindness and inclusivity. We talked about that back in 2012, but I don’t recall you speaking out on politics and current events as much as you have the past few years. Have you become more politically active of late?
Yvette Nicole Brown: I have voted in every single election I’ve been able to since I turned 18, and not just presidential. I vote for everything. My mother instilled in me that it’s very important to do your civic duty. I do jury duty when I get called. I was not politically vocal publicly five years ago because there was no need to be.
Do you worry about fans who might not want to hear the message?
Yvette Nicole Brown: I say this all the time on Twitter: At the end of this, if three people are following me, and one is a fan and two are family members, but we all have health care and we ain’t been bombed by North Korea? God bless. I’m fine. [Laughs.] That’s why I had the platform in the first place, to fight the good fight.
Earlier this year you also talked about your own experience with salary inequality. You found out that, as a series regular, you were barely making more than a white male guest actor. What was the reaction to your speaking out?
Yvette Nicole Brown: There’s been a lot of support. I didn’t see any backlash, actually. My Twitter feed didn’t light up. I think people knew I was speaking from love. I’m not ever trying to tear anyone down. I believe honesty is the best way. I believe people’s hearts are good and they’re not trying to be not good. If anything feels unfair, it’s because a person’s not aware. That’s why you have to speak up. I do it because I can.
You’ve been vocal about the importance of faith in your life. How do your religious beliefs guide you?
Yvette Nicole Brown: I don’t have a career without my faith. It doesn’t exist. Just go on the red carpet once and have one wayward nail-color issue, or wear the wrong length skirt, and everything is dissected by strangers across the world.
Let’s get back to The Mayor, where you play the mother of the title character, an adult man. I think that’s new territory for you as a series regular.
Yvette Nicole Brown: If there’s any vanity in me, it’s the vanity of, “’I don’t want to be the mom of a grown man!” [Laughs.] Once you move into the mom-area of your career, all that’s left is grandma and then it’s off to pasture. So that’s where the one bit of vanity came in, where I just said, “Well, I’m just too youthful and vibrant to be…”
What about the character herself, Dina? What’s her appeal to you?
Yvette Nicole Brown: I love that Dina is smart. She has had a life that has been difficult in a lot of ways because of some choices that she made when she was younger, but none of that has defined her or defeated her.
Your first big break in series television was a two-episode guest arc on Girlfriends, a show created by Mara Brock Akil. Around the same time, you got a job on a short-lived show starring Kevin Hart, The Big House. Were those roles pivotal for your career?
Yvette Nicole Brown: They changed everything for me. Right before I booked Girlfriends, I was dropped by my agent. And I mean the ugly dropped. Like, “Pick up your pictures at the front desk, don’t even come up to the floor … and boo, we hate you.” It was right before Christmas when they dropped me. Pilot season was starting, and I didn’t have an agent.
What was it like once you got on set?
Yvette Nicole Brown: I was terrified. I didn’t know what I was doing. But the four women who played the girlfriends were so kind and welcoming. And I say this to the boys on The Mayor all the time: “How you start is how you finish.”
