Mandie Taketa Biography

Mandie Taketa is an American actress.  She is best known for Man’s band! The Movie (2007) and Unsung Hollywood (2014). She was previously married to Wayne Brady.  She is quite accomplished in her own right as a yoga instructor, a physical therapist, as well as a bodybuilder.

Mandie was born on March 3, 1976, in Hawaii, United States of America. She is 45 years old.

Mandie Taketa Family

Mandie was born in Hawaii, United States of America.  She is the daughter of Hawai’i Carpenters’ Union head Ronald Taketa. Mandie was lucky to have her father actively involved in her life as he taught her both acting and dancing, at a tender age.

Mandie finished her elementary and high school education in Hawaii and though she had a full dance scholarship at the University of Hawaii, she decided instead to pursue a dance and acting career in Los Angeles.

Mandie is known for her role as Vicky in the independent comedy film Man band! The Movie. She has also participated in various competitions ranging from dancing, acrobatics, bodybuilding, and cheerleading to paintball. She is also a successful entrepreneur who owns three different companies, a film production company that specializes in wedding films  Anything Everything Productions, Adell Body Works, and This Lifetime.

Wayne Brady Mandie Taketa

Mandie got married on April 3, 1999, to Wayne Brady, an American actor, singer, comedian, and television personality.  Wayne is mostly known for his work on television including Whose Line Is It Anyway?, The Wayne Brady Show, Don’t Forget the Lyrics, and Let’s Make A Deal.

Mandie’s ex-husband has also appeared in numerous movies and voice-overs and has released two albums A long time Coming (2008) and Radio Wayne (2011). For his contributions to the industry, Wayne has won a couple of awards which include: Daytime Emmy Award for hosting The Wayne Brady Show and 30000 Reason to Love Me, as well as a Prime Emmy Award for the comedy series Whose Line Is It Anyway?

Despite the divorce, the former couple has remained close friends.  Mandie also bought a home in Wayne’s neighborhood so that they could easily co-parent their daughter. The couple who now live “super close”, remain committed to co-parenting Maile and want to give her the closest experience to living in the same house.

For years, Mandie’s husband secretly battled clinical depression.  Wayne hit rock bottom on his 42nd birthday and suffered a complete breakdown after the tragic death of his close acquaintance and fellow comedian Robin Williams who committed suicide following a longtime struggle with depression.

Mandie was by her ex-husband’s side and helped him recover from the hard times.  Wayne had a mental breakdown and later credited Mandie for helping him recover. According to Wayne, though Mandie may no longer be his wife, she is more than his best friend who can go the extra mile for him.
