If you ever complained about Essence Magazine’s predictable rotating cover subjects, the December 2011 issue offers a treat with beautiful actress, Tasha Smith. The star most recognizable from her hilarious role in Tyler Perry’s “Why Did I Get Married?” and “Why Did I Get Married Too?” talks candidly to the magazine about her life’s challenges and triumphs and how religion, family and Perry helped her overcome the past and excel in the present.

She wears a stunning winter white knit dress and furry vest accented by gold jewelry on the holiday issue’s red cover.
