Kontrol Magazine (Julian Lark and his team) did amazing work on the cover photo for actor RonReaco Lee currently starring on Starz Network’s “Survivor’s Remorse.” Lee is no stranger to the television sitcom world as his history on TV dates back to the days of the late 90’s as Tyreke on “Sister Sister”, Tate on Moesha, David on ER, oh and my favorite was Chris on Girlfriends and now  Lee definitely has found his calling playing the role of “Reggie” on Survivor’s Remorse! (You know his television series list goes on and on and on! I’m convinced  it’s almost as if this veteran actor’s role  on Survivor’s Remorse was tailor made just for RonReaco; it’s as if someone knew he’d be the perfect candidate to pull it off. Pairing him up with Teyona Parris as his wife Missy Vaughn definitely puts the icing on the cake.

RonReaco has definitely paid his dues to the film and television business and this cover is long over due. Lee is probably one of the most underrated black actors in Hollywood. No wonder he brought his talents to Atlanta where we appreciate his work 1000%. No tea no shade Hollywood. We just love us some RonReaco Lee in the South. Celebrity actors like Terri J Vaughn, Kim Fields, Sandra Norwood, Ashley Mills and the entire Survivor’s Remorse cast came out to celebrate. The night was so awesome I wouldn’t have been surprised if Lebron James had walked into the party. You missed a good one LeBron!

Special thanks to Dussé Cognac for the courtesy cocktails. The “Survivors Remorse” was the most popular drink of the evening. Trang Do and her bar staff were most courteous and efficiently whipping up cocktails all night. We really appreciated the beautiful Dussé models as well. So excited about what season 4 has in store. So get ready for August 20th, tune in on the Starz network. Congrats to RonReaco Lee! Now check out the trailer and then the photo gallery to see who showed up and showed out.

Blac Chyna Denied Entrance into ESPYS

Why did Blac Chyna decide to march down to the ESPYS Awards anyways with no invite thinking she was on the guest list? Everybody knows she ONLY was there to find a new sucker to lick. Well, the ESPY award FOLKS & security was NOT here for Blac Chyna and her antics. Don’t she know that Khloe had her  boyfriend Tristan put the NBA alert out that Blac Chyna was “OFF LIMITS”??? No not really but I can imagine the word was spreading.

According to Total Sports.com

“Blac Chyna “threw a fit” when she wasn’t allowed into an exclusive pre-ESPY Awards party, a source close to the event tells Page Six.

We’re told Chyna was not invited to Tuesday’s Body at ESPYs party at Avalon Hollywood — where stars like Lamar Odom (another Kardashian ex), Aaron Rodgers and Lindsey Vonn were celebrating — and that she “tried to crash.”

“They didn’t let her in because she wasn’t on the list and had a bad attitude,” the source said.”
