I love this picture of Chenoa Maxwell, just kicking up her heels on a Saturday night! I don’t know who’s car she’s on, but the guy can’t be too mad at her, right?
I love it when I can mix business with pleasure. And that was certainly the case when the cast members of OWN’s “Love in the City” brought their East Coast vibe to Philippe Chow in Beverly Hills on Saturday, May 17, 2014 for a viewing party.
My client, two-time Emmy-winning celebrity hairstylist Kiyah Wright, along with her BFFs — that is, actress-turned-photographer Chenoa Maxwell and breast cancer survivor Bershan Shaw mixed and mingled with fans, while watching the latest episode of their docu drama on Oprah’s network. These girls have been friends for more than 10 years! Imagine … doing a reality show with your best friends! Unfortunately, bestie Tiffany Jones couldn’t make the road trip out West this time around, and missed all the fun. The event was hosted by Eyelash Guru Ja’Maal Buster. I’m so glad the producers of ReelUrbanNews.com were there to capture all the fun. Plus, you can see me in action at work and play!
Friends, tastemakers and beauty professionals took over the atrium and bar area of the high-brow Chinese restaurant, mixing and mingling and watching “Love in the City” on big-screen tvs before the season finale.
In attendance included prolific tv writer and producer Mara Brock Akil (“Being Mary Jane,” “The Game,” “Girlfriends,” lit manager and producer Adesuwa McCall of MetaMorphic Entertainment, life coach A.J. Johnson, plus other beauty professionals at the top of their game, including celebrity makeup artist Terrell Mullin, celebrity hairstylist Roberta “Robbie” Rogers and NBA/NFL fashion stylist Brand Williams.
A good time was had by all as everyone celebrated sisterhood in the truest sense. There was no fussing, fightin’ or brawlin’! lol
Since April 12, 2014, “Love in the City” has been giving audiences a slice of life in New York City from some Black girls’ point of view. The new reality show follows the lives and loves of four African American women, who’ve been friends for more than 10 years.
The series is produced by CORE Media Group. D’Angela Proctor, Jen O’Connell, Rob Lee and Lenid Rolov are executive producers; Paulina Williams and Glenn Stickley are co-executive producers.
