As with any ensemble couple series there is always the struggle relationship couple and the “This is the Situation” couple. You must tune in so you can make your OWN identification of who truly runs Charlotte. All the couples are definitely winning as relationships are hard work and you will see how each couple is dedicated to putting in the work! I think this is going to be my new favorite show now that Love Is… is no longer airing.

Own Describes the show stating the following:

To Have and To Hold: Charlotte follows the real challenges couples face, from financial stress, to issues with intimacy, to the ups and downs of parenthood. The tight-knit couples like to let loose and have fun, and while these passionate and often opinionated friends may have their differences, they will ultimately do anything for each other. As marriages and friendships are put to the test, will they have the love and strength needed to thrive or will some of these relationships crack under the pressure?

She and her husband self fund this entire event to raise money for their non-profit organization “Keeping Family Connected.” Purchase tickets here.

This non profit provides luxury uber rides for families of incarcerated that have no transportation to visit their loved ones. Keeping Family Connected was created after the release of once (wrongfully accused) incarcerated Letitia Scott-Jackson; when she had no access to her family especially her kids because no one was able to provide them transportation to see her. This was an awful feeling she never wished anyone else to experience. Once released she and her husband decided to devote their lives to families of the incarcerated to make processing this new temporary way of life a little less painful for those grieving. Keeping Families Connected is definitely an organization that walks the walk and is not just about lip service.Screen Shot 2019-05-28 at 5.31.30 PMPlease join the above mentioned celebrity talent. Scrapp Deleon from Love & Hip Hop Atlanta (and newly released from Federal Prison in Georgia) will actually be a guest speaker at this event to drop gems of knowledge and comforting words of wisdom to the families that may help ease the pain of their situation.
