Xfinity Hangouts: Introducing Black Film & TV Editor Kaila

editor kaila

Introducing Xfinity Hangouts editor Kaila— Kaila is the girl you call up when you’re looking to spend a fun and glamorous night in. She’s your newest best friend who’s always down for anything whether it be fun games or deep conversation. She’s extremely loyal and always keeps it real, making her the kind of friend with whom you want to share your secrets, knowing they’ll be safe with her. She likes to get to know celebrities as people, not just as someone who is famous. Sure, she’s seen you in that show and it was cool, but what she really wants to talk about is whether you prefer waffles or pancakes. She’s not the over-the-top fan girl celebrities want to hide from, she’s the girl they feel like they’ve known forever.

My favorite collection on X1...

Black Film & TV is by far my favorite collection on X1. I may be a little biased since I built it, but still! It encompasses everything I love about my culture, including every show or movie you can imagine with leading Black actors and actresses, full Black casts and so much more. This is also a space where I get to lean in heavily on major cultural moments, accomplishments, and topics.

My guilty pleasure show...

I’d have to say KUWTK. I actually hadn’t watched the series until just last year and to be honest I’m not a huge fan; however, during those dull moments when there’s nothing to watch, and when no one is watching me, I indulge a little.

My favorite celebrity interview so far...

Robin Thede is my favorite celebrity who I’ve interviewed so far. She and I clicked from the jump. She’s has an amazing personality, is absolutely hilarious and is opening doors for so many Black women which is something I truly admire.

The celebrity I’m dying to interview next

I would love to sit down with the entire cast of my favorite daytime talk show "The Real" (Tamera Mowry-Housley, Adrienne Houghton, Jeannie Mai, and Loni Love). These ladies are so inspiring, down to earth, and just plain REAL. They feel like my on-screen besties. To hang out with them would be an absolute dream come true.

If I didn’t do this, my job would be...

A lot of people don’t know this but I’ve always wanted to dabble in either acting or work as a casting director. Everything about a set and a camera gets me on fire! This kind of career has just always been my thing.

My deserted island movie/TV show...

If I were stranded on a deserted island there’s no doubt that I could watch and re-watch every single episode of "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" over and over again. This is probably my favorite show of all time. I have the box collection from all six seasons and even know the extended version of the theme song. Try me.

If I could join any TV cast it would be...

I would definitely join the cast of "Queen Sugar". It’s filled with such phenomenal actors and actresses and directed by the one and only Ava DuVernay. Need I say more?

Make sure you say “Hang Out with Kaila” into your X1 voice remote to check out all of my favorite things, celebrity hangout episodes, and more!
