Happy 2014!

2013 has been a really interesting year for a variety of reasons, but I am confident that 2014 will be the best year ever! I rediscovered some friendships and mourned the loss of others.

The ups and downs of our business continued on another level and a multitude of lessons were learned...hopefully for the last time.

My spirit had been beaten and then replenished by the very entities that broke it down in the first place.

I guess what I am saying is I am continuing to juggle this merry-go-round called life and it always finds a way to surprise me!

Be open to your surprises in 2014 and let them stretch you in a direction never seen before!

Happy New Year Friends and Family...

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 UBNRAdio.com, 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!!!
