1. Kandi Burress A Mother’s Love Trailer
Everything happens for a reason. Although Real Housewives of Atlanta’s star Kandi Burruss relationship drama between her mother and fiancée is heartbreaking to watch, she is taking that lemon and turning it into more coins. All season, Kandi and her fiancée Todd have been seen working on their first stage play, titled A Mothers Love, and now the official trailer for the play is here! Featuring Kandi, Shirley Murdock, former Danity Kane member D. Woods, 112’s Que Parker, and RHOA star Porsha Williams, A Mother’s Love tells the story of a daughter who is in love, but must deal with her mother’s disapproval of him. Sound familiar? surprisingly, the play looks really good and Kandi recruited some wonderful singers for it! On April 8, fans will be able to purchase the play and CD here, and only time will tell if the play goes out on the road!
2. TGT Takes Over The Arsenio Hall Show
My life was made this past Monday night, as I was able to virtually spend an hour with three fine men! Tyrese, Ginuwine, and my R&B husband Tank-also known as TGT- made it up for failing to appear on a scheduled appearance of The Arsenio Hall Show, by returning for the whole hour! Along with performing some fan faves including Sex Never Felt Better and Next Time Around, TGT even took the time to answer some fan questions.
