CANDID PICS: TRACEE ELLIS ROSS SPOTTED IN HOLLYWOOD; GOLDEN BROOKS ON THE WRITER'S STRIKE'S NEGATIVE EFFECTS ON 'GIRLFRIENDS.'

Girlfriends star Tracee Ellis Ross was spotted walking her little doggy after having lunch at Fred Segal in West Hollywood, California yesterday (January 28, 2008). We very rarely see candid pics of our favorite black sitcom stars such as Tracee. But there's a reason for that. The ongoing writer's strike has forced a lot actors (specifically those who are a part of a sitcom and/or drama series) into an unintended temporary leave of absence. So, don't expect to see any new episodes of Girlfriends or any other sitcom or drama-related television series any time soon.

According to Ross' co-star Golden Brooks (who plays Mya Wilkes on Girlfriends), non-working actors equals non-paying actors as well. And although Brooks or her co-stars aren't getting paid their contractual salary, she still supports the writers. "Look, I agree with the strike. This needed to happen because the writers are just not protected and they're not treated with the respect and the value that they should be. Let's say Snap Back (the episode Brooks wrote) airs and it airs over and over and over again and I don't get any type of compensation for that rerun or for that DVD. It all comes back. And everyone — from craft services to grips — needs to be protected, respected and taken care of. And that's what it is at the end of the day."

The cast last day on the Girlfriends set was Friday, November 9, 2007.
