While attending the Soul Train Awards, I had a quick chat with TMZ producer Raquel Harper, and when I tell you she was such a breath of fresh air and energy, know that is exactly what I mean.

The mother-of-two dished on her kids and remaining authentic, in an industry that loves to change people.

On her recent level of success:

Thank you! I appreciate it. It’s really a blessing. I thank God and my mama.

She continued:

My kids motivate me. Every time I look at my kids and I have a better situation, they motivate me and make me who I am.

On authenticity:

I’m just gonna be me. Nothing fake about me other than few tracks (starts laughing). I can’t be anybody else. I’m just Raquel. You tune in and you will tune into exactly who I am right now.

How can you not appreciate this gem? She’s hella friendly, funny, and embraces who she is. We need more of that.

Be sure to tune into Raq Rants every Tuesday on BET @ 11PM/10C.
