Basie Skanks from OWN’s ‘Greenleaf’ aka Jason Dirden & Disney’s Princess Tiana aka Anika Noni Rose Just Got MARRIED!

Hello World,

Y’all already know I love love! Who knew that Jason Dirden (one of our faves Basie Skanks from OWN’s Greenleaf) and Anika Noni Rose (Disney’s Princess Tiana) were even dating  and now they have a whole wedding spread in BRIDES magazine! Apparently, they got married back in October AND Deborah Joy Winans (Charity Greenleaf from OWN’s Greenleaf) was one of the bridesmaids! Additionally, Anika Noni Rose is 50 years old so her story is yet another story that proves you’re never too old to fall in love and get married! Check out all of the glorious wedding pics and read about their love story below…

If there’s one thing actress and vocalist Anika Noni Rose knows well, it’s the importance of timing. Whether it’s hitting her marks on stage, holding tempo in a song, perfectly delivering a line in her latest show Let the Right One In, or falling in love, timing matters. Anika first met fellow actor Jason Dirden in 2014 when both were cast in the Broadway production of A Raisin in the Sun. “We were friends for a couple of years, actually,” Anika says, but the timing just wasn’t right. “We both went off and did our own things and were disconnected for a while and then swung back.” A few years later, they had the timing down pat. “It was the right moment for both of us to be open and available for the possibility of what we have now,” Jason explains.

May their union be blessed…
