Under The Stars...Literally

IMG_6357A year ago, Tony Sweet announced on air that I would be his permanent Co-Host for his internet entertainment radio talk show - "On Air With Tony Sweet".  It was also around that time that we interviewed Jeff King, Rebecca Amis and Suzy Amis (wife of Oscar winning director - James Cameron) about The Muse School located in the mountains of Calabasas here in Southern California. For those of you not familiar, The Muse School educates children based on their interests and how to respect the earth through sustainability.  I love the concept and I adore Jeff, Rebecca and Suzy.  Clearly, it is a mutual love fest, as they requested I host their "Under The Stars" Fundraiser this year that literally was under the stars of the Calabasas mountains on The Muse School Campus.  We had silent and live auctions and were treated to a special video from Jeff King, who was absent this year.  However, he offered to eat a GIANT beet if a certain number of donations were reached!!!  Can't wait to see that one!  In the house with support were 20th Century Fox Chairman Jim Gianopulos, CAA, ICM, Cirque de Soleil and many, many more!

A few days later I received the most beautiful arrangement of roses from Muse to say "thank-you".  I say..."it was my pleasure"...

For more info on The Muse School, fundraising events, open houses, etc...,  please go to www.museschool.org.

Here are a few photos from that night!!!

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!!!
