“It’s definitely different. This one is fast-paced. Candace is kind of a tornado and she’s brought all these people to their knees. As the story progresses, you’re going to see why [Candace treats her mother like she does]. My [real-life] mother calls me after every show like ‘Girl, I would have smacked you. That would have not happened in my house.’”

Though she uses the professional name Tika, Sumpter’s real-name is Euphemia, which is Greek. She says family folklore says “Tika” came from her grandmother sighting a tiki bird, a beautiful blackbird, and that’s where the name came from.

Sumpter promises the next episode of “The Haves and the Have Nots” will be explosive. You can tune in to all the drama on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on OWN and catch full episodes here.

  1. I knew her from somewhere, but couldn’t think of where, when someone wrote she was Evangelines sister on one life to live I realized that’s where i knew her from

  2. I have been a fan since she played “Evangeline’s” baby sister on One Life to Live. Glad to see she is finally being recognized. Keep up the great work, Tika.
