Trivia Crack and ME

10 02 2015

trivia crack

I had never even heard of “Trivia Crack” before the other day. It’s an online game, app, etc… Google Play lists it as:

Trivia Crack is the international smash hit game that pits friend against friend in different categories to determine who has the most trivia knowledge.

Okay, so the reason I am even mentioning this is because one of my friends apparently plays this and the other day a question about yours truly came up in the “entertainment” category! Imagine that…me a trivia question! haha

Anyway, she was amused by it and sent me a screen shot (BELOW). And — I’m happy to report she did answer that correctly. So, I guess this makes it official..I’m famous, right!?!? ;)

Holiday Ice Skating

24 11 2014

I laced up some ice skates and got to skating over the weekend with some of the crew from WAVY for the 10th Anniversary opening of MacArthur on Ice in Norfolk at the MacArthur Shopping Center. It’s part of their Winter Carnival this holiday season…good times!

I started ice skating when I was four and although it had been YEARS, okay at least a decade, since I last took to the ice…I didn’t fall and even managed to do a (very) small spin! :)

Here I am with Anita Blanton, taking a skating selfie….and below with my THRS Co-Host Chris Reckling!

Komen Tidewater

Do you tutu?? I recently participated in the “Do You tutu?” campain for the Susan G. Komen Tidewater organization. The promotional ad with me (and others) donning a pink tutu was to spread the word and promote the local “Race for the Cure” event in Hampton Roads.

The event took place this past Saturday and I was up before the break of dawn to do live shots for the station and get ready to emcee the event prior to the race. It was kind of fun to wear me news hat (literally) for the day, again! ;)

As you can see I wore a pink tutu once again, you know…getting in the spirit and showing my support for breast cancer survivors and the fight to find a cure. King Neptune made the photo too!! My tutu was courtesy of Amp’d Couture.

I worked on my selfies too…here I am with the other media hosts of the event… Face of Fox 43, Kevin Kennedy, Alabama Radio and Dominique Da Diva.

Here’s one more snap, me with the parade of survivors, the true VIPs of the day!



Gary Owen Interview

I got the chance to interview and hang out with comedian Gary Owen when he came through Hampton Roads last week. You may know him from “Think Like a Man” and “Think Like a Man Too,” he’s also been on Tyler Perry’s House of Pain. He’s a very funny, energetic, yet down to earth guy. I really enjoyed meeting him and even went to see his stand up show while he was in town. Check out the interview below where we talk about him being in movies, going to Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade’s wedding and why he likes “black!” Funny stuff…click play below!!!



Mo’Nique x Me

I met the very talented Mo’Nique during her visit to Hampton Roads when she came by my show to promote her appearance at the Virginia Beach Funny Bone. I really didn’t know what to expect…I think part of me still sees her as her Academy Award winning character from Precious! LOL! But seriously, she couldn’t have been more genuine and sweet…I was really in awe of what a true professional she is. I get to meet all kinds of people in my line of work and I can sincerely say she is top notch.

Check out the video below to see her interview. She came to the show with her friend and opening act TONE X, and we chatted about her doing the plank challenge, being Mommy’s to boys and she even shared her thoughts on Robin Williams, who coincidentally was the person who presented her the Oscar when she won in 2009. I can’t wait for the next time my path crosses with this amazing lady.

I recently hosted the “Face of Fox 43″ special announcement show at my station. Every year WAVY’s sister station Fox 43 selects a “Face of Fox” who will represent the Fox affiliate hosting community events, tv segments and be the social media extraordinare for the station!

My “The Hampton Roads Show” co-host joined me in doing the prime time special, where Tyrus Jones, was named the new “Face of Fox.”

Here’s a sassy shot of me…

Bobbing for Bananas

Things went  a little “bananas” on The Hampton Roads Show today… Special guest co-host Alex Scott joined me in studio, he’s a comedian/actor/writer and has appeared on Def Comedy Jam as well as BET’s Coming to the Stage, and most recently he was a writer for the Arsenio Hall Show. Well, we had a bobbing for bananas contest on the show today. I’ve never done anything like that before in my life….and well, you’ll have to watch the video to see how the competition turned out…
