Rickey Smiley: We Get Away With A Lot

Posted: Updated:

Rickey Smiley has a lot going on. He's hosting Dish Nation five times a week and has a new movie coming out this weekend. Smiley joins Paula Patton and Taye Diggs in the new romantic comedy "Baggage Claim" and talked about that and the show, which airs right here on FOX.

"Just the funny part of talking about pop culture...you will actually sit there if you watch Dish Nation and laugh because it moves really fast and it goes from Seattle to LA to Dallas back to Atlanta and it's a lot of fun."

Rickey had worked with the director of Baggage Claim before on the Ice Cube comedy "First Sunday"..he says that made the shoot even more comfortable.

"It was a lot of fun, they kinda let me be myself." He also says guys shouldn't be scared off by the words "romantic comedy"...

"A guy would leave there and say 'hey you know what? I wanna get married. I wanna love somebody. I don't wanna get married, I wanna stay married.'"

Rickey says during the premiere he even looked around the theater to see how men were reacting to the flick..especially the ending.

"I'm looking around and I'm kinda checking the dudes out...and the guys were like...trying not to cry."
