#TBT Boys On The Side

Boys_on_the_Side_posterHow many times have I expressed my adoration for non other than Whoopi Goldberg!  Whenever she was announced or attached to a film, I was always the first to see it and Boys On The Side was no different.  I also adore Drew Barrymore and knew about Mary Louise-Parker waaaaay before WEEDS came along...lol These three women under ordinary circumstances would have no reason to be friends, but become bonded for life on a ride-shared trip to California.  They all have challenges...Jane a lesbian, Robin suffering with AIDS, Holly running from her past, seeking one-night stands and a good man.  It all results in girls on the road, reaching understanding, respect, and care for each other.

Featuring a young Matthew McConaughey and pre-Dextar James Remar...Let's roll on down the road with girls looking for Boys on the Side...

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!!!
