Screen Shot 2019-07-12 at 9.24.30 AMFrom the co-writer of Girls Trip comes First Wives Club, an original scripted series that celebrates the friends who are there when you need them the most.

We loved Ronreaco Lee in Survivors Remorse on the Starz Network and numerous other fim and television shows. But we get to see Ronreaco Lee in an entirely different acting mode as he plays the nerdy husband Gary in ‘The First Wives Club’ coming to BET.

Lee joined  2 of his castmates in a panel during the Essencefest at a BET event during festival weekend and everyone gushed about their roles on this new series. Keep logging on to BET.com for updates.

Everyone knew the Central Park 5 Story when the 5 teenagers from NYC were sentenced in 1989 but to see this story unfold on the big screen and feel the  pain and injustice these boys endured; especially Korey Wise. We were simply not prepared.

Screen Shot 2019-05-28 at 5.38.20 PMScrapp 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.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. 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.
