WHEN LOVE KILLS: THE FALICIA BLAKELY STORY Red Carpet Screening and Q&A with Lil Mama, Lance Gross, Tami Roman and Tasha Smith

TV One really outdid itself with its latest original film, When Love Kills: The Falicia Blakely story! If you have ever been a fan of the network’s Fatal Attraction series then you will really love this movie. Marking Tasha Smith’s directorial debut, the film is based off a true story. Falicia Blakely (Lil Mama) was a young woman who became a stripper and pregnant when she was only sixteen years old. Abandoned by her daughter’s father and living with her troubled mother (Tami Roman), she is forced to grow up and work to make ends meet. Her luck seems to change when she meets Big Dino (Lance Gross), a drug dealer and charmer. Her life spirals out of control as she sacrifices her life, body, and ultimately her freedom all in the name of love.

Indeed this is a story that has all the angst, danger, and makings of any traditional Lifetime movie! Tasha Smith is an excellent director. Her guidance coupled with this amazing cast of actors really makes this film awesome. Lil Mama’s acting chops are Grade A and we cannot wait to see her in more productions!

TV One definitely knows what it is doing and we can only hope things go up from here. We need to see more films like these about real people, especially young women. Most people have no idea just how prevalent sex trafficking is or that most women are in prison based on something surrounding a man.

The Mini Room is a small room–kid-sized, to be exact–made like real lego pieces! A near kid-sized Emmett, from The Lego Movie, was even there! Check out a few photos from the awesome event, attended by our very own Michael “Hey Mikey” Fanning below!

 

We absolutely enjoyed ourselves at the event as you can see. We especially enjoyed the special backpacks/goodie bags we were given. It was filled with Lego Movie: The Second Part paraphernalia, including lego blocks and people featuring Lucy and Emmett from the movie. We have no doubt we are going to love this film when it comes out; and you will to. Be sure to catch it in theaters nationwide, Friday, February 8th!

Cynthia Bailey hosted an island-themed launch party on Thursday, October 25th at The Bailey Wine Bar in Grant Park for her new signature  flavor, “Peach Bellini,” under her new partnership with Seagrams Escapes!

Cynthia was joined by her Real Housewives of Atlanta (RHOA) co-stars Nene Leakes, Kandi Burruss, Porsha Williams, Shamea Morton, Eva Marcille,  Shamari De Voe,  Tanya Sam, Yovanna Logan and their significant others.  Also to round out the evening was the surprise return of Kenya Moore.  You can find Seagram’s Escapes, Peach Bellini on shelves in February 2019 at your local retailer.seagrams peach bellini

Events like these–and the surprises and drama–only have us even more stoked for the eleventh season of RHOA. As an Atlanta native and resident of The Peach State I was all too excited when Seagram’s announced the Peach Bellini flavor of their wine cooler collection. The beverage is sweet and refreshing; and smooth enough to actually serve as a chaser when you combine it with vodka! Happy drinking, and as always, DRINK RESPONSIBLY!
