In thinking about the future, Wright would like to see us take a page from the good parts of our past. "I would like to see our country get back to a place that we're respected around the world," he said. "When I'm travelling, it's hard for me to sit at a bar and, when somebody learns that I'm from America, they say, 'What is going on over there?' It's even harder when that just wasn't my experience in working with the first family. Again, I'm not a politically driven person and I don't know much about politics, but I do know good from bad, and what's going on right now just does not feel good to me."
He continued, "The thought that [Donald Trump] had a rally on Juneteenth, and where he had it, it's like, 'No one on your team thought that wasn't a good idea?' I mean, look, there's a lot of ignorance out there in the world, but we need more from a leader and also his people. Please, just, go vote."
How He's Been Coping in a Time of Crisis
To put it lightly, the last few weeks following the murder of George Floyd at the hands of the police has been a time of unrest — coupled with months of fear and uncertainty that comes with a global pandemic. But there has also been some good news in Wright's world: he landed a starring role next to Tamar Braxton on what can only be described as the hairstyling version of Restaurant: Impossible, called To Catch a Beautician that premiered on VH1 at the end of May.
