Guests were treated to an interactive conversation with the cast and crew, led by Ava DuVernay, where they were able to preview the series through episodic clips and engaging discussion. Following the conversation, attendees had the opportunity for a Q&A with the cast. 
Throughout the night, guests vibed to the sounds of DJ Princess Cut, sipped on refreshing cocktails, sampled an array of tasty food selections and flicked it up at the ever so popular Mirmir photo booth.
We really loved this event, and of course, getting to meet some of the truly amazing media, personalities, and socialites. Most of all, however, we enjoyed “Cherish The Day!” The show is going to be amazing from the clips we saw. Love, Black love in particular, really deserves its day in the sunlight. Thanks OWN for this amazing new anthology series. It may be just what the doctor ordered.
“Cherish the Day” will have a two-night premiere on Feb. 11th and Feb. 12th at 9/8c on OWN.

OWN never ceases to amaze us with its amazing series and original content. The network continues to push the envelope with self-care and love, and we are not talking about “Super Soul Sunday!” Instead one of its reality series, a vitamin/television show, “Family or Fiance,” has stolen our hearts and attention!

 

The event took place at The Gathering Spot, and began with a light lunch of various salads, croissants, cookies, chips, and of course “Cocktails & Cupcakes.” There Atlanta’s biggest in brightest in media gathered to ask longstanding questions about “Family or Fiance, and sought relationship advice from Tracy McMillan. Tracy discussed, among many things, how the concept of the show came to be, how they come up with the challenges for the show, difficult moments for her to watch, and even what to wear on a first date!

The overall theme of her discussion with us all was that we all want love and we have to know what boundaries to set in place for them for the sake of our romantic relationships. She also relayed that “people ultimately want to be together, but relationships are all about compromise and communication.” We can definitely eat (bites cupcake) and drink to that (downs Plushberry Lemonade)!

Catch the season premiere of “Family or Fiance” this Saturday, January 11th. Check your local television listings for showtimes!
