The Best Man Holiday opens TODAY nationwide! Support this film...why?Nia Long said in an interview on ABC's "The Chew" that the studio would not financially back the film unless the cast assembled to do a table read to see if the chemistry was still there. I don't recall any studio asking for table reads of Grown Ups 2 or The Hangover you before green lighting these you?

Why did these talented brothers and sisters have to prove their worth? The proof should have been that it worked and broke box office records the first time.

Prove the studio wrong and make this a powerful opening that the film and it's stars deserve!

Hey My Fellow Movie Lovers...

A Bison, Virgo, devoted daughter, yoga and spinning enthusiasts, graduate of  the "mecca" - Howard University's School of Communications, former publicist, actress, branding influencer and "doggie mom" to an adorably smart-energetic maltese are just a few of the characteristics that make up the essence of me -- Carla Renata.

Formerly of, where I Co-Hosted "On Air With Tony Sweet", this Fall, I will be hosting a new show for Black Hollywood Live owned by E! Correspondent Maria Menounos  and am a freelance contributor for NPR's Weekend All Things Considered.

I absolutely adore talking about all things cinema and it is my sincere hope that although not every opinion I have will or will not be embraced, know that I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to share!  Enjoy and see you on the red carpet!!!
