Amanda Seales Is Always Protective of Her Sisters From The Industry

Amanda shared about her relationship with former co-star Issa Rae and addressed the rumored feud between the actresses in the HBO dramedy Insecure.

Calabasas, California: In the April 24 episode of Club Shay Shay, Amanda Seales discussed various issues, one of which attracted considerable attention.

Amanda shared about her relationship with former co-star Issa Rae and addressed the rumored feud between the actresses in the HBO dramedy Insecure.

Here’s a little backstory to their feud. In 2019, Seales could not attend the next edition of the “Black Emmys party.”

Key Takeaways

  • Amanda Seales is very proud of her parents and does not shy away from showing the love and appreciation she has for them.
  • Her “sister,” Nada Mays, is a Registered Dietitian.

The Get Your Life star was initially invited and on the guest list. But, she was reportedly removed by Rae’s publicist, Vanessa Anderson.

Later, Rae discovered this incident, cleared her name, claiming she had nothing to do with it, and asked Seales to speak to her publicist.

Upon talking to Anderson, Amanda found out that she was the one who removed her name from the list. The reason why Anderson removed her name was because she disliked the Crimson Hearts Collide star.

This did not end there. Another rumor started after a ‘false‘ narrative of Issa surfaced about her Insecure co-star’s poor behavior on the set.

Talking with the podcast host Shannon Sharpe, Seales also strongly disagreed with Lil Rel Howery, the Insecure guest actor’s emphasis on the female empowerment of Rae’s work style.

She wasn’t empowering to me,” Seales said.

“She didn’t feel like I deserved to be protected. I’m only giving a portion of the situation. But that was my experience. And nonetheless, I have still always protected her because I felt like it was my responsibility to do so. But it is not.”

Amanda always felt that she needed to protect Issa, who is doing something that few people get to do.

The Comedy Knockout star’s protective nature towards her friends and colleagues made people wonder about her family, who instilled such great manners in her.

Amanda Seales’ Parents, Afro-American Father & East Indian Mother

Amanda Ingrid Seales was born to her African-American father and East Indian mother, Annette Seales, on July 1, 1981.

Her parents played a huge role in her life and deserve all the credit for her successful career.

In 2018, the American actress dedicated a post to her father on Father’s Day.

The post included a picture of her from her childhood with her parents and a caption that read, “This pic got bout an 8hr life span on my timeline. Happy Father’s Day to all the dads that show up EVERY day, not just for “family” pictures, lol Real Ones, You don’t get enough recognition, but you’re integral to shaping young hearts and minds into solid thoughtful adults…”

Similarly, Seales is forever grateful for the role her mother, “great Nettie,” played in her life.

Sibling Sister

Although there hasn’t been any distinct information regarding her biological siblings, Amanda has a few sisters in the industry.

In 2019, author Demetria L. Lucas posted on Facebook to wish Amanda a happy birthday, referring to her as “Lil‘ Sis.”

The post showed their relationship and how proud Lucas was to see her little sister grow.

Similarly, in 2021, in one of the episodes of Small Doses with Amanda Seales, she announced that the episode featured her sister.

In the announcement, she emphasized, “yes, I have a sister,” who is a first-generation American descendant of Palestinian refugees, Nada Mays.

Who Is Nada Mays?

Nada Mays is a Johnson & Wales University alumna who earned an Associate of Science (A.S.) degree in Culinary Arts, Baking, and Pastry Arts and a Bachelor of Science in Culinary Nutrition.

Later, in 2021, she completed her Master’s degree in Community/Public Health Nutrition from Saint Elizabeth University.

Following a Dietetic Internship at Overlook Medical Center, Mays became a full-time Registered Dietitian.

She also worked as a Brooklyn Drive Down Diabetes Program Supervisor at CAMBA and started her own venture, Nutrition by Nada, in May 2022.
