‘L.A.’s Finest’ Stars Gabrielle Union & Jessica Alba Talk Quarantine: Chores, Homeschooling, and Drinking
Jessica Alba and Gabrielle Union have something to celebrate in quarantine! The second season of the crime drama “L.A.'s Finest” is back this June, and FOX just announced it will air Season 1 in the fall. “Extra's” Nate Burleson chatted with Jessica and Gabrielle, who also talked life in quarantine with their families.
Jessica is self-isolating with husband Cash Warren and their three kids. She said, “It's been really interesting… I've set up a desk situation so I can do conference calls with my business in my closet.”
They are also teaching their kids about chores, “Picking up after themselves has become a game. We time them. So it's 'Alright... clean the kitchen. You got 10 minutes.' And then they want to do eight minutes, and I'm like.. 'Yes!'”
Gabrielle told Nate about homeschooling with husband Dwyane Wade and the kids. Nate said, “I heard Zaya said she was gonna do it on her own?” Union replied, “Yeah, she overheard us talking to somebody who was like… 'How you doing with new math?' I was like... 'I didn't know old math.'”
The actresses show off their crime-fighting skills and agility on “L.A.'s Finest.” Gabrielle said, “We both work out. And there were times Jess and I would see each other at the gym and were like, 'Alright... high five, let's go!'”
They are thrilled that fans can see them on FOX, too. Union said, “There was some drinking… quarantine drinking... celebratory quarantine drinking." She asked, "Jess, what were you drinking?” and Jessica answered, “Tequila," to which Gabrielle joked, “I think there was a lot of tequila and whiskey.”
Season 2 premieres June 8, 2020, on Spectrum Originals, and Season 1 will air on FOX in the fall.
