Last week, before I got sick, I had the pleasure of attending my very first Atlanta press event! If you are new to the blog, I recently moved to Atlanta, from California in the fall. Take a huge leap of faith, taking the chance to grow the brand, and to explore more of the country- I went for it! So you can imagine there will be more “firsts” to come! LOLOL So, when I got the invite to attend the OWN Press Reception of ‘Love Thy Neighbor’ and the ‘Haves and Have Nots’, immediately, I was curious and excited!
Now, this day was unique- as this had to be the coldest day in life. EVER. So, trying to figure out how to dress, be presentable, and to stay in great spirits? Took a little bit of me! LOL! But it was pretty cool! At the fancy Twelve Hotel: Atlantic Station, we were met with four cast members from the shows- and surprise, one was a fellow Cali friend!
The OWN Press Reception
Tyler Lepley (The Haves and the Have Nots) Patrice Lovely, Palmer Williams Jr and Kendra C. Johnson (Love Thy Neighbor) greeted us and then they took turns answering questions about the new seasons airing NOW on OWN. It was fun, because you didn’t know what was going to be asked and the four of them were lively and quite playful!
After the group Q & A wrapped, the actors broke into one on ones, and I bee-lined it for my girl, Kendra C. Johnson! We hugged it out, she was shocked I was there, we giggled like little girls and my boo Kiwi snapped these pics of us!
