Cocktails with Claire x Miss Diddy LA Comes To Atlanta & KarmaJonez Got an Invite

.cocktailsclaire

I am so excited to be covering Cocktails with Claire Sulmers & Miss Diddy this weekend, here in Atlanta! These girls are doing big things, and they have been for awhile now. Sulmers, who is a Harvard graduate, and is fluent in French, has an AMAZING resume. You can read it here. Miss Diddy is equally impressive, a self made woman, who happens to be the ONLY woman party promoter in Hollywood. She is also a Hennessy (my favorite drink) Key Account Manager.

And while these ladies live two different lives on two different coasts, they both have one very important thing in common–fashion. They are INCREDIBLY fashionable.

Demetria McKinney Covers Adele’s “Hello” & Gives Me All the Life

You may only be familiar with Demetria McKinney from her brief stint on Real Housewives of Atlanta, but trust me when I tell you, this chic is different. As you could probably tell last season, Demetria walks to the beat of her own drum. She never really got caught up in the drama, and perhaps that’s why she didn’t make it to Season 8. But after hearing this cover of Adele’s “Hello”…I’m pretty sure she won’t be needing RHOA…like at all.

As many of you know, the last WE TV reality show that snatched my wig was “Cutting It in the ATL”. Those girls really had me going from beginning to end. And now, it looks like WE TV has another group of successful Atlanta businesswomen that they’re about to introduce. I was invited to the advanced screening of WE TV’s “Selling It: In the ATL” last night, and it was a blast! Click below for the tea.

Real Housewives of Atlanta Cast Revealed & Kandi and Demetria Collab

The anticipation has been building over the last few months about who would be stepping up on RHOA now that the head honcho, Nene Leakes had stepped down. And after Porsha Williams got kicked off of the show following a physical altercation with Ms. Twirl AKA Kenya Moore, it left fans wondering who we’d actually have left on the show. Well the votes are in.

Some Drama Happened at the Atlanta Ultimate Women’s Expo…I Was There

So I attended the Atlanta Ultimate Women’s Expo over the weekend, and just when I was all excited about so many women coming together without drama, I get wind of some nastiness between two of the biggest shade queens known to entertainment…NeNe Leakes and Wendy Williams.

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!
