Broadway and The Cosby Show CD Barry Moss Memorial image

Barry Moss  was memorialized yesterday in New York City.   If it weren't for this dear sweet man, Wayne Cilento and Joey McKneely, my career on Broadway would have never begun.

To me... Barry Moss Was Broadway.  He and his longtime friend Judy Rich also kickstarted my career on television by bonding together over how to get me an agent.  They put me in touch with their best friend. ..a casting director for a very popular show.  He shut down his office and called agencies all over Los Angeles until he found just the right fit for me.

I loved him and will be forever grateful for making this little girl from the Midwest fulfill her dream on performing on a Broadway stage...Thank you Barry!!!

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!!!
