To Have and to Hold Charlotte – New Series on OWN Network
Atlanta Media were privy to a private Media Lunch with three amazing power couples from a new show on the own network. Pictured above the socialites “Alane & Yandrick, the fun couple “Christine & Darhyl”, and the Vegan, Nurse and health advocate Ursula and hubby Clinton. The great dynamic is that each couple pictured above considers themselves power couples and Christine and Darhyl are America’s Dream Couple and Lovebirds together since college. Darhyl has truly found his soulmate and they are elated that the key to their marriage going strong over 10 years is because they have a 48 hr rule (they do NOT go without having sex over 48 hrs). Interesting.
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?
Scrapp Deleon to attend the 3rd Annual Creation of Fashion Event on June 3rd in Dallas
Phaedra Parks is scheduled to be the host and mistress of ceremony at the 3rd Annual Creation of Fashion. Jamila T. Davis will also be a special guest as well as radio host Michael Moultrie. Letitia Scott-Jackson Co-Founder of Keeping Families Connected is elated about the weekend of events scheduled. 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.Please 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. Advocate Jamila T Davis who also recently served several years in Federal Prison will also be a guest speaker at the Third Annual Creation of Fashion Show.

Wendy Williams Promises to Help Journalist Dee Barnes Publish her Memoir and Produce Movie of her Life Story
Gee! When I was so excited about hearing my teenage friend Dee Barnes was heading to the Wendy Williams show. I had no idea that I was going to hear all the things that I was going to hear. I cried like a baby through the entire interview. Tears that I couldn’t take away the pain. Tears that that one night my friend was stripped of something that no one could help her cope with. Tears that this disgusting act of violence and assault was displayed on someone like Dee Barnes who didn’t have a malice bone in her body.
