CENTERPIECE FILM: TV ONE PRESENTS PREMIERE OF 

 ”UNSUNG” FEATURING CECE PENISTON

 
CeCe Peniston

 


CeCe Peniston burst onto the ’90s music scene with the infectious anthem
“Finally”, taking over the charts and becoming one of the most successful dance club artists in history.   A soulful singer with the range to take on any song, CeCe effortlessly sang R&B, dance, gospel and jazz, and went Top 5 with hits like “Keep On Walking”, “We Got A Love Thang”, and “I’m In The Mood”.  But after the huge success of her first hit, CeCe became synonymous with a narrow formula, leaving many of her fans and her record label wanting to hear little else. CeCe pushed for a greater R&B focus but ultimately alienated her core audience and ended up without a record deal.  Off stage, she struggled through two failed marriages and the loss of nearly her entire fortune. But CeCe’s tenacious spirit carried her through.
In this revealing episode of “Unsung”, CeCe candidly reveals the story of her rise to fame, her struggles to find her place in the music business and the heartbreaking personal setbacks she’s struggled to overcome.

Thicker Than Water” follows Ben and Jewel Tankard with their blended and extended family as they live, love and laugh through the perils and pleasures of life. Self-dubbed the “Black Brady Bunch,” this southern family integrates their strong religious conviction with their penchant for the finer things in life. Under the watchful eye of the patriarch and matriarch, the Tankard children, although young adults, still live at home and must abide by Ben and Jewel’s rules. With the belief that “God wants us all to be millionaires,” the Tankards aim to be the best and brightest in everything they do. Along with their drive, comes a healthy dose of rivalry proving the adage, “You can choose your friends but you can’t choose your family” especially true.

SPECIAL FEATURE:
TRUTH HALL THE SERIES

Purchase Tickets Here

Back in the dorms of

TRUTH HALL, Lashon, Denise, Amber, Jazae and Colette were the best of friends. Several years later, the bonds that held them together in college prove strong enough to keep them connected well into adulthood. Based in different cities, the women’s lives are deeply entwined via smart phones, computers, smart TV”S and other modern technology. When they crave a break from their individual worlds, Lashon, the movie star of the bunch, whisks them away to Hollywood for a weekend soiree.

 Back in their respective cities, the women become immersed in their own chaos, love, joy, pain, divorce, affairs, conflict…life. The brief moments spent on an ichat with a trusted friend somehow makes it all seem bearable. Many people lose tough with old classmates and friends, but the women of TRUTH HALL are a new breed, refusing to allow their friendship fall by the wayside.

 

When it is all said and done, adulthood has revealed their true selves…parts of them that were hidden in college. And now with all secrets on the table, we find that only real friends can hand the TRUTH.

Prince Harry Rocks at WOMAD w/ ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT

Posted on 02. Aug, 2013 by in News

 

** NO CREDIT ** FAMEFLYNET - Exclusive: Prince Harry And Cressida Bonas At The WOMAD Music Festival

Prince Harry and his girlfriend Cressida Bonas were spotted at the WOMAD music festival over the weekend —  where the one & only Arrested Development were live in concert! (Wiltshire, England)

E! News Online posted that the 28-year-old prince and the blond beauty joined a bevy of their friends as they listened to artists like Ed Harcourt and Arrested Development.

And not even the rain could dampen their moods, the royal covered up with a hat (the same one he wore to Glastonbury a few weeks ago!) and coat while his gal pal brought a bright blue umbrella to tie her over for the occasion. But just as important, he was joined by over 5000 other wonderful fans that partied with AD.

“We were totally surprised to hear that the Price came to our show, he didn’t watch from backstage, he was dancing WITH the crowd. I thought that was cool!” – says lead vocalist Speech.

Pls Sign Petition for Marissa Alexander (Warning Shot Case)

Posted on 14. Jul, 2013 by in Brainwashed, News

  • marissa-alexander-4x3120424055341-marissa-alexander-story-top
  • Target: Florida Governor Rick Scott
  • Sponsored by: Susan Vaughan

PLEASE CLICK HERE TO SIGN PETITION

The Stand Your Ground Defense failed domestic abuse victim Marissa Alexander – who didn‘t shoot anyone. Since urgent pleas for a new trial fell on deaf ears, it’s time for the Governor to pardon this innocent mother.
Only after enduring a year of violence from her husband Rico Gray, who has a documented history of abuse, did she arm herself for protection.
The next threat came just nine days after giving birth to their daughter. Gray, in a rage, cornered her and threatened to kill her. But instead of shooting him, she aimed upward. The only thing she hit was the ceiling.
Gray ran into the street, claiming she threatened to kill him and his boys. Marissa, on his word alone, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
For protecting her life and children she was just sentenced to twenty years in prison, even though Gray has recanted. There’s no excuse for Florida to deny this responsible mother her freedom.

Tell Governor Scott to PARDON Marissa NOW!

 

A Letter directly from Marissa (FROM PRISON) to us all:

Hello Everyone,

I want to thank each and every one of you for writing me, praying for me or even thinking of me in your heart and are continuing to do so.  For the most part, I’m hanging in there, as well as one could in this environment.  Prison is definitely NOT what’s happening.  It’s dreadful here, but hey, it’s suppose to be, it is after all captivity.  My good days out weigh my bad days only because God is my source of strength.  Please know that you all inspire me thru your communication and please know that the prayers that you offer up on my behalf are being answered.  I’m so very blessed to have some of the most extraordinary people and organizations who are committed to supporting and encouraging me in every way.

I will continue to believe in our justice system.  I choose to do so because I have complete trust in God, and we are still a nation that has this fundamental belief embedded in our core, displayed in our courtrooms and written on our money, and more hopefully in our hearts.

Truly I couldn’t begin to express to you how much I appreciate your wonderful letters of encouragement.  Please know that I do not take your time and kindness for granted.  Your heart-felt concern I am most grateful for.

With all sincerity & respect,

Marissa Alexander
