After hosting BET’s “106 & Park” for seven years, along with co-host Terrence Jenkins,(who recently joined E! Online), Rocsi Diaz is also making on her grind, as she is now the new host of “Entertainment Tonight.”
With that being said, the hostess is saying goodbye to New York by doing a photo-shoot with PYNK Magazine
, because she’ll be moving to Los Angeles to be closer to her new hosting gig.
In the mag, Rocsi talks about who’s her favorite shoe designer (Christian Louboutin), finding it hard to date regular guys because they tend to get scared of her celebrity status, her thrive for success and wanting to support her family along with marking her mark in the industry.
She even dished about her celebrity friends and who’s she closer to:
“Throughout the years, I have been able to become friends with a lot of people in the industry like Lala Anthony, Gabrielle Union, Tyrese Gibson, and Ludacris. They were my friends from my radio days before BET.”
However, Rocsi is saying she is excited to have been apart of the BET family because it was a great chapter in her life and loved every minute of it. But she’s looking forward to the next chapter.
She also revealed that entertainment was never a career choice for her, when she was growing up:
No – not at all. Every little girl dreams about being an actress one day or something like that but I was the complete opposite. I wanted to be a whale trainer and swim with them and everything. It wasn’t until college that I became interested in entertainment and radio.
Despite her silence about dating Eddie Murphy, she admitted that, “I have a big crush on Lenny Kravitz. On 106 & Park, he gave me a shout out on video for my birthday. I was really touched.”
The former BET host then ended the interview with wanting to be very successful, starting a family in 10 years while working, traveling more often, having her own star on the ‘Walk of Fame’ and winning an Emmy or an Oscar.
