 photo 31A5B9E6-7636-4884-AD73-E45E257FD067.png_zpswg7u2kor.jpeg

The annual White House Correspondents' Dinner, dubbed the Nerd Prom, takes place tonight in Washington, DC.  Journalists and entertainers mingle with the political elite. It is a must see event each year.

This will be President Obama's final White House Correspondents' dinner.

So folks... Set your DVRs!

Coverage begins at 6PM followed by the dinner and speakers. The highlight of course will be when President Obama steps to the mic. Larry Wilmore will host.


Side Note: I will miss President Obama and the First Family when the second term comes to an end. It has been an absolute honor and blessing to have President Obama as Commander-in-Chief and Michelle Obama as First Lady.

Vice-President Joe Biden has been an excellent VP. One of the best President/Vice-President partnerships in history. The level of respect they have for each other proves the type of men they are. The professionalism and work ethic is second nature to both.

Prince Rogers Nelson, known to the world as Prince, passed unexpectedly Thursday. As I type this... it just seems so surreal.

Prince recently endured a medical emergency and seemed to recover quickly. He even resumed performing. So I was shocked and saddened upon hearing that hepassed today, just days after his medical emergency.

There are simply not enough words to accurately describe the phenomenal talent and artistry that radiated from Prince. His stellar body of work, the music, the authenticity of his craft and spirit will forever remain.

Prince's legacy lives on.

May he rest in peace.

Sending prayers and condolences to his family during this difficult time.

Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna are officially engaged. Earlier this week, reports surfaced that Rob popped the question. This was confirmed when Blac Chyna posted a photo on Instagram showing off her seven carat diamond engagement ring.

The Kardashian family have been a wee bit quiet since the announcement. Of course the fact that Kylie is dating Blac Chyna's baby daddy and Kim Kardashian and Blac Chyna are former BFFs, this is a recipe brewing that will shape up to be one of the most talked about and watched weddings... when and if it ever happens.

 photo 50FE7684-9C94-4A4D-A5CB-80F312284D7D.png_zpsolsldcns.jpeg

High Strung is directed by soap opera veteran (The Young and the Restless) Michael Damian. This must see romantic musical drama is infused with the off the chain choreography of Dave Scott. The trailer definitely makes the case as to why folks should check it out.

Damian has several films under his director's belt including Love by Design, Flicka: Country Pride and A Princess for Christmas.

High Strung is currently in limited release. However in my opinion, the film should be in wide release. To find out if High Strung is playing in a theater near you, visit the movie's official website.



RUBY ADAMS (Keenan Kampa) is a dancer from the Midwest on scholarship, living her first day in New York City. JOHNNIE BLACKWELL (Nicholas Galitzine) is a British musician, playing for money in the subway tunnels. Ruby’s world is classical and disciplined; Johnnie’s is improvisational and street smart. When a hip-hop battle gone wrong throws these two artists together, they immediately clash but can’t deny it when sparks begin to fly. Their lives quickly get entangled in the pitfalls that come with competing in New York City. With the help of a dynamic dance crew called The SwitchSteps, Ruby and Johnnie must find a way to save Ruby’s scholarship and keep Johnnie from being deported. In an action-packed extravaganza combining cutting edge hip-hop with contemporary and classical dance, the two must navigate their opposing worlds and prepare for a competition where winning or losing will change their lives forever.

The wait is almost over. Sylvia Day's final Crossfire novel releases Tuesday April 5, 2016. Tomorrow is the day!

It was inevitable what I was going to choose as the book of the month selection for April 2016. Several months ago, bestselling author Sylvia Day announced the highly anticipated release date for the final novel in the crazy popular Crossfire Series.

The fifth installment titled, One With You, will be the finale in one of the most intense, beloved, deep, complex and powerful stories about the relationship between deeply scarred individuals and the darkness they've had to face both together and individually.

A couple that had to find peace with not only their relationship issues, but with their own baggage and the demons they battled daily.

Through the highs and lows; the storms, the trials and tribulations of Eva Tramell and Gideon Cross' tumultuous relationship, one thing has always remained constant...
