Sherri Shepherd Releases Trailer for Her Upcoming Talk Show ‘Sherri’

Hello World,

My sincere condolences to the people in Uvalde, Texas who are grieving the loss of their children and loved ones. I don’t understand why our government doesn’t seem to want to make it harder rather than easier to access guns in the wake of increasing school shootings, but that is another post entirely…This post is about Sherri Shepherd…

Sherri Shepherd is getting ready for her talk show “Sherri” that will debut this fall! Check out the new trailer for “Sherri” below. Sherri begins the trailer by saying, “It is my lifelong dream to have my own show, and it’s finally happening. I am so excited to welcome you to the official kick off. This is my time.” Congrats to Sherri again!!! We will be watching…

Yolanda Adams & Serayah Star in ‘KINGDOM BUSINESS’ on BET+, Available May 19!

Hello World,

New Show Alert!

The Kingdom comes first, but at what cost? Executive produced by DeVon Franklin, Holly Carter, and Kirk Franklin,  KINGDOM BUSINESS premieres 5/19, only on BET+!

About KINGDOM BUSINESS: Denita Jordan is the Queen of Gospel Music at First Kingdom Church and Kingdom Records in Atlanta. A superstar whose music has been heard around the world, she is determined to guard her family and its many secrets at all costs. Her husband Calvin Jordan may be the Bishop at First Kingdom, but Denita is the true leader, and she has little tolerance for insurrection among her family and employees (and ex-employees). Suddenly, there is a new powerhouse performer on the Atlanta gospel scene — a young pole dancer, Rbel, whose talent and pedigree may bring her closer to God and gold than she ever imagined.

KINGDOM BUSINESS also touts a stellar lineup of talented recurring guests stars, including Tamar Braxton as “Sasha”, La’Miya Good as “Essence,” Aspen Kennedy as “Zyan,” Kiandra Richardson as “C.J. Jordan-Walker,” Kajuana Shuford Marie as “Dani” and Sam Malone as “Dex.”

Film Producer DeVon Franklin is Back on Social Media After Divorce from Meagan Good, Releases New Audiobook ‘It Takes a Woman’

Hello World,

Sadly, at the end of last year, film producer DeVon Franklin and actress Meagan Good announced they were divorcing after nine years of marriage. Shortly afterward, DeVon announced that he was taking a break from social media which I can appreciate. As is said in the Bible, there is a time for everything under the sun, and sometimes we need to retreat and rejuvenate so that we can return. And it seems that DeVon has done just that! On April 13, DeVon’s birthday, he posted a picture of himself with the words “Love Wins” tattooed on one arm and “Live Free” tattooed on the other. Pretty drastic to have those words tattooed, but my healing doesn’t look like your healing and vice versa.

Below is his post about his social media break…

It looks like he is taking a break from dating as well because it appears that he celebrated his birthday with his dudes. If that’s true, that is wise because it takes time to unpack what happened to dissolve a romantic relationship much less a marriage. When I was dating, after a relationship ended, I took six months to just be…

Check out pictures of DeVon and his dudes below…He looks happy and refreshed…

And not only has he returned to social media, DeVon has released a new audiobook “It Takes A Woman,” which features his mother, Paulette, as well as his great aunts: Aunt Nuna, Aunt Ida, Aunt Enis, Aunt Donna and Aunt Sondra. I imagine in the last few months, he has spent a lot of time with them discussing what happened in this marriage. If you’re smart, you consult with the elders of your family especially in times of distress. Here’s his social media post about “It Takes a Woman” below…

I have something special for you today…a new audiobook from Audible! IT TAKES A WOMAN!
Part of my journey of healing has been working on this audiobook. I put my heart and soul into this and I can’t wait for you to hear it!
My mother, Paulette and great aunts: Aunt Nuna, Aunt Ida, Aunt Enis, Aunt Donna and Aunt Sondra have made such an impact in my life when they stepped in to raise me and my brothers after my father died, and TODAY, I’m so grateful I get to share their wisdom and voices with you.
In this audiobook you can hear, first hand, GENERATIONS of wisdom! You not only hear my voice, but the voices of my great aunts and my mother.
I didn’t want the voices of our women to get lost in the sands of time.
If it wasn’t for the women that raised me I don’t know where I’d be! 🙏🏽 Can you relate?
From tragedy to triumph, for the first time I tell my family story. It will make you laugh, maybe cry but I hope it will uplift your soul.
I know you’ve heard the African proverb, “it takes a village to raise a child,” I also say, IT TAKES A WOMAN, and that’s why it’s the title of my new Audible Original.
START LISTENING RIGHT NOW to #ITTAKESAWOMAN on Audible at (and please let me know what you think)

I wish both DeVon and Meagan well as they navigate their new lives…

Aside: I actually interviewed DeVon back in the day! Check out that interview HERE.
