And lucky for me (and you) WE TV is launching a new Atlanta based reality show, called “Cutting It in the ATL.” This show highlights the lives of five experienced stylists who are giving each other a run for their money. I had the opportunity to attend the “Cutting It” press luncheon today, and we had a little bit of girl talk.

KarmaJonez Attends The BWFN’s Star Studded “Untold Stories” Luncheon

Yesterday I covered Day 1 of the Black Women Film Network Summit, and today, I’m going to cover Day 2! What an awesome experience! Although I enjoyed both of the days, I think Day 2 was definitely my favorite.

I started the day by stopping by the “Master Class” featuring actress Charity Jordan of the movie Selma. She talked about what it meant to be a person of color in the TV and film industry, but especially a WOMAN of color. She gave us a lot of great advice, and we even did some cool acting exercises to break the ice.

For me, her greatest piece of advice was, “If you’re in it for the money, get out now.” I think she made a good point about finding your passion. Your passion is something that you’d do for free. Money is always good, but if that is your only motivation, then it isn’t for you!

She went on to tell a funny story about the first time she hung out with Oprah. She said she had a blast…so much so that she ended up taking a fork and a piece of toilet paper from home as a souvenir! Ha!

After that, it was time for the Red Carpet, and honey, it was a sight to see! I ran into Real Housewife Kandi Burruss, Todd Tucker, Farrah Franklin (former member of Destiny’s Child), V Bozeman, Robbi Reed, Evelyn Mims, Latavia Roberson, V 103’s Ryan & Kysha Cameron, Will Packer and more!

After everyone hit the red carpet, we sat down for lunch, award presentations, and an awesome performance from the stunning V Bozeman. I think my favorite part of the luncheon was hearing Shante Bacon, founder of 135th Street Agency speak. That, along with Jaunice Sills, director of programming and promo planning at Revolt. These two women were both so young, so accomplished, and still so humble. And it’s always a pleasure to see Saptosa Foster, who is a PR extraordinaire! It was great to witness!

We also got to view movie trailers from some up and coming Black filmmakers. Truly inspirational! And can I just say that the host, comedian Jonathan Slocumb was a HIT?!

I met a lot of awesome people, and can’t wait for the next one. I’m convinced that #BWFNSummit16 will be even better than this one!
