Rocsi Diaz is starting to branch out in her career. In addition to hosting BET's popular show 106 & Park, the 28-year old beauty is getting into acting and writing her first book.
In a new interview with NBC's Peter Baily, she touches on those subjects as well as Webbie's ban from BET.
According to Webbie, the situation was a case of 106 & Park co-host Terrence J, becoming jealous after Rocsi hugged him, but she tells a much different story about the incident.
"It's really sad the way it was looked upon. It was like, 'oh he was banned.' In any light that a woman feels like she was disrespected... and I have thick skin. But when you're at your job and somebody sexually harasses you in a manner that is very vulgar and disgusting, you know I have no shame sticking up for myself and telling you you're improper right now," she said. "I'm at work, we're in a set, there's children around us, you're really out of line right now. I think people should more so applaud a woman sticking up for herself, and the people around her for sticking up for herself, than allowing that kind of behavior to happen."
Despite what happened Rocsi said she is still is a fan of Webbie's music.
"I still am I fan because I'm from New Orleans, he's from Baton Rouge. I love his music, I bounced with the best of 'em, but to have somebody that you really were a genuine fan of turn around and... I understand maybe there was some type of little crush, but there's a manner in which you speak to people," she continued. "He disrespected me, Terrence stood up for me, I stood up for myself and the network would not allow anyone to come and disrespect their host in that manner. It was really inappropriate, and it's really sad. I just hope that he just understands it. There’s never even been an apology, it’s been more of an upsetting incident [to him] because he can’t be on BET. His management has been super duper nice and they reached out to me. I think they've had problems with him before. If you youtube him you can see other interviews where he has been very inappropriate."
