He & Tim wrote the book,"Six Days on a Raft" that they are turning into a feature film.

Candy Wang, Asian film star, pops in for a minute to say hello to our audience. 

About Bill Harrison

 Mr. Harrison’s faith and survival when World War II came to a conclusion on August 14, 1945, eight days after the first atomic bomb was dropped on Japan. The U.S.S. YMS - 472 was one vessel whose job was not complete at war's end. They were assigned to Okinawa Island with orders to sweep the area and destroy active mines. The men were already having thoughts of home, family and togetherness. The weight of the war had, finally, been lifted off of their shoulders. However, not a single one of them suspected they would soon be introduced to a new type of enemy. On September 16, 1945, thirty-three days after the war, a category 3 typhoon named "Ida" would catch the thirty-one man crew of the YMS - 472 off guard and send the ship to the bottom of the ocean. Six Days on a Raft is a true story of one man's experience on the Pacific Ocean while lost to the sea in a tiny life raft. As his comrades began to slip into the ocean around him he knew it would only be a short time before it was his turn to succumb to the elements. However, his epiphany about true faith would be the catalyst to a miracle rescue.

Angel Terron, Playwright, Tanya Thompson, Actress & Reggie Gaskins, Director join ML in studio to talk about their new stage play, "Angry Insecure Men" This piece is based on true events of abuse and domestic violence in Angel's life.
Today, multi ethnic Author Angel Terron embraces both her Hispanic and African heritage with pride. Her novel 'Reply Or Delete An Internet Love Affair' is a testament to her singular voice. Angel has grown into this industry and taken her writing skills to new heights. Starting her career as an extra in Tyler Perry's 'Diary of A Mad Black Woman', the film opened doors for her to pursue a dream in the industry. Being a part of Will Packer and Rob Hardy's projects really set her mind on doing what she thought would get her ahead, with her personal stories now being put into novels and scripts, she has now found her niche. All of Angel's scripts are based off her real life journey, from internet dating, to abusive relationships and dealing with society and mental health issues. This writer has what it takes when it comes to storytelling. Born and raised in Newark N.J by her father who is a pastor and her mother a model, she dealt with adversity from both ends when dealing with her own personal demons. Being a victim of domestic violence not only in one relationship, but three, gave her the strength to tell her story and how she survived.
About the Play
'Angry Insecure Men' the stage production is being presented on November 6th and 7th at 8:00pm in Los Angeles at The Wilshire Ebell Theatre at 4401 W.8th Street,Los Angeles, CA. ​The production is a true life story of the writer Angel Terron who was a victim of domestic abuse in three different relationships throughout the course of 12 years.
'Angry Insecure Men' has been a platform at several events to bring awareness to the disease of domestic violence. In October 2014 Angel launched a stage production that brought out survivors and reached the community to bring awareness to an issue that is becoming an epidemic in our society. This year she has established a bigger platform to bring more awareness and getting celebrities involved with her NO A.I.M Campaign. A portion of the proceeds of this current production will be donated to the women's shelter in Los Angeles.

Jamie Brickhouse, Author of "Dangerous When Wet... A Memoir" joins Mother Love via phone from NYC to allow us into his live out loud life.
About Jamie
With honestly and humor, Jamie Brickhouse chronicles his addiction to alcohol, to men, to good times, and to the adoration of his formidable Texan mother, Mama Jean, in his debut memoir You will laugh, you will cry, you will cheer for Jamie as he battles his demons, and you will fall absolutely in love with Mama Jean. From the age of five, all Brickhouse wanted was to be at a party with a drink in one hand and a cigarette in the other and all Mama Jean wanted was to keep him at that age, her Jamie doll forever. A Texan Elizabeth Taylor with the split personality of Auntie Mame and Mama Rose, always camera-ready and flamboyantly outspoken, Mama Jean haunted him his whole life, no matter how far away he went or how deep in booze he swam. Brickhouse's journey takes him from Texas to a high-profile career in book publishing amid New York's glamorous drinking life to his near-fatal descent into alcoholism. After Mama Jean ushers him into rehab and he ultimately begins to dig his way out of the hole he'd found himself in, he almost misses his chance to prove that he loves her as much as she loves him. Bitingly funny, raw, and insightful, DANGEROUS WHEN WET is the unforgettable story of a unique relationship between a son and his mother.

Mia Shante, Pole Dancer, Body Builder and Activist joins ML in studio chatting about her "Black Lives Matter" video she and her partner Sashja put together and dance out with other Black Polers to bring greater awareness to this very pressing issue of continued racism in America.
About Mia
About the Video
Dance has always been a catalyst for empowerment. As a powerful tool of artistic expression, its potency can liberate the viewer and incite change. After being bombarded with news and images per the recent upsurge in senseless killings, fromTrayvon Martin to Eric Garner to Sandra Bland, Mia Shanté knew she had to do something. Her spirit was calling her to dance out the trauma, the pain and the hurt. Shanté gathered together an ensemble of some of Los Angeles' top pole dancers to participate in a dance ritual to Michael Jackson's "They Don't Care About Us" and has released a performance video entitled,"Old fight. New Dance: Black Lives Matter," quakes with bold defiance while resonating with heartfelt compassion. Expresses Shanté, "In particular, I envisioned this as a piece for black women. We haven't really been highlighted during this movement. We have had to mourn the deaths of our fathers, husbands, brothers and children and often we are there to build the men who have been victimized back up. This video is to let people know that as pole dancers, we hear them, we feel them, we are them and to still hold on to hope. Black lives do matter."

Cocoa Brown, Actress/Comedianne calls in from her road tour to share her very funny take on life, love, motherhood and comedy
About Cocoa
"Brown is undeniably one of the most talented comics and performers of this generation" - The Newport News.
Virginia native, born Farah Brown, assails her craft with such passion and soul-searching veracity, when she claims a stage the ensuing act is nothing short of a force of a nature. Cocoa Brown audaciously draws from painful reminiscences and hard-knocked lessons, bravely weaving humorous tales that uplift, upend, and upgrade everything you thought you knew about comedy. What drives the comic who female fans nationwide have nicknamed the "The Truth"? The sheer will of a woman who survived the worst life had to offer and is still standing.The fiery performer, whose credits include Tyler Perry's critically acclaimed comedy series "For Better or Worse" on Oprah Winfrey's OWN network and a national commercial spot for Progressive Insurance Company, has assembled an extensive body of work. A career that began as an advertising associate for Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus and a writer for various sketch comedy shows proved confining for the dynamic performer. She honed her writing and creativity to pursue her dream of being a stand-up comic. A decade later Brown had nearly mastered the art of comedy. She harnessed its essence and purpose, performing on top rated comedy shows including BET's "Comic View" and "One Mic Stand", and "Showtime at the Apollo".Today, she exemplifies mind-blowing humor, daring drama and contemporary reality wrapped in a boundlessly energetic package. Whether she is performing in honor of the incomparable Richard Pryor or acting in films such as "Lakeview Terrace" with Samuel L. Jackson, Brown exudes skill and discipline. Those characteristics, along with her chilling story of struggle and redemption, inspired Tyler Perry to create "Single Moms Club", a feature film that casts the accomplished actress in the leading role. The movie hit theaters in 2014. The comedy veteran and rising star, fueled by Perry's powerful vote of confidence, is ramping up her ambitions in a relentless mission to become the performer many people doubted but even more admire. With a nomination for a Screen Actors Guild award under her belt, Brown has her sights set on an Oscar, an Emmy and a Pulitzer Prize. She is writing a revealing autobiography and producing her highly anticipated one-woman show, "Confessions of a Suicidal Diva".

That same year, Birdsall, wanting to do something for those affected by the Earthquake, flew on a relief mission to Haiti. She is now in the process of editing the footage of her journey for a documentary which she'll produce through her company Pacific Coast Entertainment, Inc.
In 2014, Birdsall was named Maverick Award Winner at the Action on Film Festival (prior award winners include Kim Coates, Michael Madsen, Talia Shire, David Carradine, et al). Two of her films, including comedy Going Very Badly (2014), also premiered at the Californian-based cinema centenary and stacked up multiple awards.
This year alone, the Malibu-based actress has no less than four major projects due for release including At The Edge of Time, which she also co-produced, supernatural drama Dawn of the Crescent Moon (2014), rom-com Courting Chaos (2014), and the highly anticipated Science Fiction film Robot Fighter depicting the overthrow of humanity by an Artificial Intelligence. You'll also hear Birdsall as the voice of the Starship Computer in writer-director Neil Johnson's Doomsday (2015).
Birdsall is currently filming the lead role in the independent comedy Who's Jenna...? (2015) and Rogue which has - despite still being in production - already developed a large fan base online.

Business was good from the start and over the next 9 years I'd built the company to the point where I needed to enter the 'cyber-world'. Today as I prepare to share that same passion for sports designs I ask you the customer to take a look and welcome.
Yours in fitness, Wayne "Violator" Mabry

Christy Curtis Buss, Choreographer/Actress and Entrepreneur joins Mother Love in studio to share her enthusiasm as she celebrates her 20th anniversary of her dance studio "The Studio Art Of Dance". She has her niece Jaice with her who chimes in about her life as well.
About Christy
Choreographer/actress and entrepreneur Christy Curtis Buss who is known for her choreography work on NBC's "Days of Our Lives," is celebrating the 20th anniversary of her iconic dance studio, Studio Art of Dance.
Buss, who is the daughter in-law of late Lakers owner Jerry Buss, is marking the anniversary with a VIP event at Staples Center next month featuring a number of celebrities and friends.
Having established the Studio Art of Dance 20 years ago, Buss has grown a small school into one of the largest private dance facilities in the country, with an enrollment of more than 400 students. The studio has helped teach students about dance, poise, perseverance, as well as about self esteem and confidence in one's self.
"The kids we have learned so much by the time they leave that it's not just about dancing and learning the necessary moves to take their talent to the next level," Buss said. "It's also about learning what it takes to succeed in their studies, career and at life. We really stress the positive values that we all as human beings need to be live a good life."
Born in St. Louis to a family with a strong background in dance – her mother owned a dance school – Buss became an elite dancer within a short few years. Her ability to learn new moves and a variety of dance styles seemingly ensured her success as a ballet dancer. Once in college, she injured her foot severely and thus ended her dreams of becoming a ballet dancer.
With dreams of becoming an actress, Buss moved to Los Angeles after winning The ABC-TV Special "All American Girl" in 1979. When she moved out west, her first endeavor was becoming a Los Angeles Rams cheerleader, where she was dance captain and was able to travel world. She then went on to join the Los Angeles Clippers Cheerleaders as a dancer and choreographer which led to her meeting and then marrying Johnny Buss, son of Lakers' owner Jerry Buss.
It was during this time that her acting career began to take off as she was cast in a number of television commercials and films. Acting on soap operas led to her choreographing for shows, such as "Passions" and "Days of Our Lives." Buss started her own business in 1993. She is now still running her business with over 450 students and three companies, while also choreographing with partners and groups for special occasions.
The Studio Art of Dance is known for its Children's Program based on the award-winning Miss Christy's Dancing Video-DVD Series. Awards include: The Parents Choice Seal and the Openheim Toy Awards in Gold and Platinum and featured on "The Today Show." The studio is also home of the Christy Curtis Dance Company.

About Bonnie
Senior Comedy Afternoons came about in response to a daughter's desire to please and more importantly amuse her 91 year-old mother! The story husband and I had taken her out to a comedy club for an evening's entertainment and she just hated it..! She just couldn't relate to the young comedians and the language being used and so..I got to thinking! Why not create something just for Seniors..? The elements that needed to be satisfied were an afternoon time frame in a nightclub setting, a nice meal served before the show and comedians that would serve up their humor fast and positively funny!.....with comedy she could relate to! And so, a few dozen auditions later, a club to perform in and some generous publicity from Los Angeles television station KABC Channel 7 and the Orange County Register, and Senior Comedy Afternoons was born!
We are a comedic company that caters to Seniors and their younger counterparts the "Boomers" by using comedians that are 50+. All our shows feature clean AND clever comedy and a wonderful luncheon with surprises along the way! Our audience members come from many groups like the Elks, the Red Hat Society, the Masons, Golf Clubs, Retiree Clubs, Senior Living and Retirement Communities and Assisted and Independent Living Communities, and of course the many Senior Centers who are all out to enjoy an afternoon of comedy and fun!

I grew up in a tough neighborhood in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I was raised by a single mother who was addicted to drugs, but she knew she wanted something better for me.

Many unforeseen challenges would lie ahead, but with my mother's love and support and with my hard work and dedication to my health and fitness, I persevered and overcame adversity. I played college football, earned a Bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice Administration from Sonoma State University and studied acting.

Laura Pursell, Singer/Actress joins Mother love in studio to share her passion for music and acting and growing with a famous father.
About Laura
Laura Pursell was born and raised in Nashville, TN surrounded by music (her father is pianist Bill Pursell, who had the hit record Our Winter Love (1963) and was a go-to sideman in Nashville for Marty Robbins, Patsy Cline, Chet Atkins, Boots Randolph, Johnny Cash, and many, many others. At 18, she was cast as Dick Van Patton's niece in a nationally televised Christmas special, The Gift of Song, starring a host of country music stars. Relocating to LA in the early 90's, she studied at the South Coast Repertory and Beverly Hills Playhouse and has starred in countless stage productions all over LA, including "Blue Moon Dancing" by Ed Graczyk, "In the City for the Summer" (Variety singled out her gritty performance), and the farcical, outrageous "And Then There was Nun" which played to sold out houses for 2 extensions, where she did a hilarious sendup of Gloria Swanson. She was a long time member of the Company of Angels, LA's oldest repertory theatre, winning a Dramalogue Award for her saucy, sword-wielding performance in the mainstage production of Zastrozzi. She appeared in an iconic video for Weird Al Yankovic, spoofing Tanya Harding in the "Mmmm Mmmm" song (where she did her own figure skating). She appeared in several episodes of "Days of Our Lives" and had a small but pivotal role in "The Landlady" starring Talia Shire. In 2013, she was cast as one of the three leads in a hilarious coming-of-middle-age web series called "Living the Dream", 2015, she had the starring role in "Only the Moon Howls", a moving one act which won the Encore! Award at the Hollywood Fringe Festival. Her performance was singled out for its "deep emotional access" and hailed as "heartbreaking", "truthful", "sensitive" and "vulnerable". A film version of the piece is planned for late 2015.
In 2014, she was back in the studio, recording with her dad, the Nashville String Machine, and a rhythm section boasting the best players in Nashville. "The Very Last Dance Hall Left in L.A." is a 10- track collection of jazz, country and pop standards, with 2 original tunes. An ode to an earlier time, this was a historic recording. It brought her dad back to re-record a tune he had actually recorded with Patsy Cline ("Strange"). He also revisited a tune he had previously recorded as a solo artist for Columbia (" I Can't Help it if I'm Still in Love With You"). And the co-writer of "Strange" (Fred Burch) helped shape the lyrics to the title track.
Bill Pursell is an American composer and former session pianist. He had a brief but successful career as a pop musician before continuing on as a session player

Lionel Ball, Film maker in studio to promote his latest documentary, "What To Do When You Get Pulled Over"
About Lionel
Lionel is originally from Detroit, but moved to Southern California at the age of four. His parents, Lionel Sr. and mother Juanita, sensed his great interest in movies at an early age. By age 11, they enrolled him in filmmaking program for kids at Los Angeles City College. At 12, Lionel got his first film camera, a set of lights, a projector and an editing flatbed capable of cutting 8 millimeter film.
Moving on to the University of Southern California originally as journalism major, Lionel found himself working on student publications. Eventually, however, he worked as an advertising executive for the university publishers' office. That engagement led to opportunity with McDonald's Corporation as the college marketing rep, and later as the company's marketing rep for south Los Angeles.
His experience in radio inspired Lionel to take formal classes in audio engineering and recording. When a lack of enrollment forced the cancellation of some of his audio classes, Lionel began to take film and television production classes at both LACC and UCLA. Eventually, Lionel's confidence in his new knowledge allowed him to venture full time in the entertainment industry.
Working in post production for the first few years, Lionel expanded his interest in production sound and built a second career as a location audio mixer that included over one hundred feature films. At the same time he also began producing a new talk show series for a public access channel for three years. The combination of his experiences in post production, production, and corporate management skills acquired before his entertainment career created several opportunities in both film and television.
Currently Lionel's career is focused primarily on creating and managing content. In the past five years alone he has created or produced over a dozen television pilots in addition to half a dozen feature films, live stage events, documentary and industrial projects.

Ken and Cheryl Scott want to change that.
Their mission is to ensure that law enforcement officers are properly trained and equipped to deal with mentally ill people.
At noon on February 16, 2015, my stepson, Philip McMahon, 28, was shot," he explains. "It was 12:42 am CST when my wife received the first news of Philip's shooting, an event that had occurred 10 hours earlier. From that point true information was almost impossible to obtain. The police wanted information but gave none. The hospital was not even allowed to acknowledge that Phil was a patient. Everything we got was from the media and they got what the authorities wanted them to say.
For the next five days we were living in hell.
Things have slowly become better, but..."We see a police officer, we become angry, we become nervous, we relive everything we went through. We see a crime drama on TV, we get angry, and we relive everything we went through. Events like these not only affect the victim. They affect family. They affect friends. They affect the society we live in," Ken adds.

About Magda
I am Polish, born in Munich, Germany, and raised mainly in Austin, TX, with stints in Moscow, Russia and Grenoble, France. My parents dragged my brother and me all over the world so often that I actually get nostalgic whenever I get a whiff of that plasticy-diesel airport smell. I've always loved traveling, and in each destination, I would always imagine what my life would be like and what kind of person I would be if I had grown up and lived there. Each place I've visited and each person I've met has annexed a little place in my soul, and together they've fueled my curiosity of human nature and the stories our lives tell. My love for writing and acting continued when my family moved back to Austin, and I started taking acting classes and performing in local theatres and independent films, as well as writing short stories, skits, and breaking down literary structures in novels and plays. At the age of nine, I made up my mind that I was going to be in the entertainment industry when I grew up.
After high school, I moved to Los Angeles after being accepted and receiving a scholarship to the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. After graduating from "The Academy," I've acted in independent films, internet projects, and plays around Los Angeles, as well as becoming involved in writing and producing.My debut in screenwriting (as well as producing, actually) was a web series called Miracle Mile Girls. It actually started out as little more than an experiment, but the pilot episode was accepted into the Cannes Film Festival, and the entire series got onto Funny or Die and other online platforms. Its unexpected success sparked my interest in producing and film finance.It also spawned, a blog dedicated to women, our successes and failures, big and small, in all areas of life and professional fields. /

Dr. K Andrews
Dr. Andrews has four degrees in psychology, including two in clinical psychology from Pepperdine University, and another from Ryokan College. Her formal education is bolstered by over 45 years of research on schizophrenia, psychoses, depression, anxiety, and substance abuse. Dr. Andrews research concerns discovering ways to eliminate disorders, rather than simply medicating them.
Prior to opening the Human Renewal Institute, Dr. Andrews gained 12 years' experience offering psychotherapy, and over 20 years' experience working as a life and mental health coach. However, it was a seemingly unrelated experience that had the strongest impact on Dr. Andrews' development of the Human Renewal process. That experience was her enlistment in the U.S. Navy, where she attended eight weeks of boot camp.
During boot camp Dr. Andrews was introduced to the specifics of behavior modification techniques. She marveled at how immediately and thoroughly change takes place under the right conditions, and learned how to create those conditions. Over the year, she also realized how permanent these changes can become, and learned to teach clients to establish lasting change rather than returning for treatment repeatedly as with traditional psychology.
Dr. Andrews travels the world teaching clients to take back their lives from debilitating psychiatric disorders. When asked what she likes about her work she replied "I see miracles every day, I get to witness people recreating themselves." Dr. Andrews is an honorably discharged U.S. Navy Veteran and former member of Iceland's NATO Defense force. She is also a retired recording artist and songwriter, formerly signed with Power Records in Atlanta.
Dr. Andrews has authored two books: one titled "The Little Things: Daily Little Acts of Love for Men Who Know How to Hold a Woman's Heart," and a series of children's books based on a character named "Dreddy Bear" who travels the world teaching children about unity and universal law. Dr. Andrews is also writing a self-help book on exposure therapy and planning a science-fiction novel. Dr. Andrews' long term goals include developing three additional HRI clinics in the U.S. and one abroad.

About Radhaa
I am an inspired award-winning indie filmmaker. Through my diverse experience as an actress, writer, director, producer and in PR, I found fascination with everything entertainment related. I am able to bring a unique perspective to all of my projects as a woman in film. My focus is on creating films that speak to the heart and the spirit of being human.
I knew there was a fire within me to start a project, and I went onto create my very first feature film about the power of second chances and the ability to change that is within all of us. I went on to create my very first feature film, Hope Cafe.
With virtually no budget or studio backing when I first started producing, with nothing but a dream, courage--and a whole lot of hustle--I learned some tough lessons, and did what it took to produce four films that all got picked up for distribution, with Hope Cafe winning Best Director and Best Actor at the Indie Film Festival in LA.
I love working on projects that are meaningful, with ridiculously talented creatives with great integrity. I am exploring projects that are woman centric and from the unique perspective that comes from being a woman.
My latest project I am Directing is called "Can You Still Love Me" is a short a character driven film that explores how shame shows up in a a relationship, and if the power of love is stronger than the pain of the past.

About Miguel 
Born into a family of nine children in New York, Nuñez moved with his family to North Carolina where he grew up and completed his high school studies. Following high school, he moved to Los Angeles with dreams of becoming an actor.
His experience in Los Angeles wasn't as good as he had hoped. For the first five years he couldn't land one acting gig for television or film and was forced to make money some other way.
By the early 80's he started getting nibbles from the industry, landing guest roles in series like Automan, The Twilight Zone, Amen as well as bit parts in films like Joy of Sex(1984), Friday the 13th: A New Beginning (1985) and The Return of the Living Dead (1995).
Film work began to pick up in the late 80's, although Nuñez continued to play nameless background characters like Man with Broken Nose' in Harlem Nights (1989) and Squad Member #4 in Lethal Weapon 3 (1992). By the mid 90's, however, he started to play supporting cast characters such as Dee Jay in Street Fighter and Bugs in Hard Vice (both 1994).
Nuñez finally landed time in the spotlight in the late 90's starting with a co-starring role on the television series, The Faculty playing Luis Jackson and a major role in the feature film For Richer or Poorer (1997). He also did memorable turns in Why Do Fools Fall In Love (1998) and Life (1999), playing Biscuit.
In 2002, Nuñez was cast in the lead role for the basketball comedy, Juwanna Mann, playing Jamal who is kicked out of his league and decides to dress in drag and play for the women's league
Still living in Los Angeles, Nuñez helps the homeless at the Union Rescue Mission through his "Sparks of Hope" program. He is married and has two daughters.

Justin Elledge "The Human MRI"© joins us in studio to share his gifts of healing from his personal journey to stories of helping others
About Justin
After many years of personal health challenges such as migraines, and chronic fatigue, Justin Elledge sought out a life of meditation and healing. In 1989 while taking a class in massage therapy his gift of healing for others began to manifest as he worked on those in need. Many clients felt a sense of deep calm and serenity within minutes. Though many experienced his healing touch, he followed a different path and he turned to the field of nursing for more than 5 years in 1992. 
His true abilities of Medical Intuition did not fully express themselves until much later. During "A Course in Miracles" retreat in Julian California he attended over the weekend of Easter in 2005 became a personal time of life, death and resurrection. While there, he performed energy work on a friend, Ananda to help relieve some pain in Ananda's upper body. As Justin knelt over him as he lay on the floor, an image of a broken rib appeared in Justin's mind's eye. Pulling back from Ananda, Justin then asked "Please show me where the pain is." Ananda then indicated by moving his right hand over his lower right rib cage. Justin then said with complete certainty, "You my friend have a broken rib." 3 days later, X-rays of Ananda's right side rib cage confirmed the break. And with that, whether sitting with someone in the same room, or halfway around the world, Justin's gift of being able to see what was causing a health challenge with his client's physical, emotional and Spiritual body, has earned him the title of "The Human MRI"

About Stephanie Stephanie Spruill (last name is one syllable, silent "i," of Dutch origin) grew up in South Central Los Angeles the third of nine children. Her parents loved jazz and gospel while she soaked up soul, pop and other strains among her peers. Stephanie had a natural affinity for drumming and rhythms but formally studied cello from elementary school to high school where she participated in musical theater as well. Singing in church and playing in orchestras taught her the value of being a team player as opposed to solely focusing on being a soloist.
Upon graduation from Centennial High School, Stephanie received a scholarship for music and theater at the Eddie Kantor Academy of Creative Talent then joined the African American ensemble Young Saints Academy of Performing Arts under husband and wife team Tommy Roberts and Evelyn Freeman. Here Stephanie gleaned her first major show business experience singing and dancing on television and on tour with Hollywood legend Danny Kaye. This included a stop at the White House where they performed "When The Saints Go Marching In." "When I saw President Nixon's guest the Duke of Windsor pounding his cane on the ground to my lead performance on the Edwin Hawkins Singers gospel hit 'Oh, Happy Day,' I knew right then and there that I had a gift," Stephanie fondly remembers. She opened her own Spruill House Music School of Music and Artist Development, Inc., and authored the instructional book and companion CD "Stephanie Spruill's 17 Points to Longevity in Show Business" – with the emphasis on business. Recently Stephanie appeared on the 87th Academy Awards singing with John Legend and Common on the Oscar winning song "Glory" to rave reviews. have been one of Country No one else can righteously claim to have sung at the White House for three separate administrations and before the Emperor of Japan the Queen of England and the King of Spain, superstar Glen Campbell's Rhinestone Cowgirls on stage and recordings, as well as one of Disco diva Donna Summer's "Bad Girls" on have toured the world for over five years as a featured singer with Spanish superstar Julio Iglesias to singing at The Metropolitan Opera House with the incomparable Placido the sole African American woman wailing on the climactic close of southern rocker Tom Petty's "Don't Come Around Here No More" and leading the chorus on punk rocker Billy Idol's rousing "Mony Mony" have sung among and contracted the chorus for Michael Jackson & The Jacksons' concert opening anthem "Can You Feel It" 
Her Spruill House Music School of Music and Artist Development, Inc. has enabled Stephanie to give back to the music community that so nurtured her by providing a platform to educate and motivate students on the rigors they will face in today's highly challenging work place.

About Michael
Over the past 20 years, Michael has been driven to make magic contemporary and to give it a wide, mainstream appeal. He has been featured on NBC's "The World's Most Dangerous Magic II" television special, The CW's "Masters of Illusion" series, and Pop TV's "Don't Blink" series, as well as "CBS Sports", "Entertainment Tonight", ESPN's "SportsCenter" and "Pardon The Interruption", "NBA on TNT", "New York Today", "FOX & Friends", "The Bold and the Beautiful", "Crook & Chase", and "The Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon".

In addition, Entertainment Weekly named Michael as one of the magicians they would like to see with their own television series, calling him "a great magician who can truly communicate with a TV audience".
Possessing a true passion for amazing live audiences, Michael has performed at Heinz Hall with Oscar-winning composer Marvin Hamlisch and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Harrah's Resort in Atlantic City and San Diego, Casino Rama in Ontario, Canada, Grand Central Station in New York City, Navy Pier in Chicago, the Four Seasons Resort in Lanai, Hawaii, John Paul Jones Arena in Charlottesville, VA, the A.J. Palumbo Center in Pittsburgh, on the red carpet of ESPN's ESPY Awards at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, and at The White House Easter Celebration. Michael was recently honored to be the first illusionist ever invited to perform in the National Independence Day Parade in Washington DC. During this remarkable celebration of our country, Michael levitated a girl high above one of the floats as it moved down Constitution Avenue while an audience of 250,000 people lined the streets. 
Last summer, Michael was one of the headlining performers in "Masters of Magic", a large scale production show which ran nightly for two months at the Grand Sierra Resort and Casino in Reno, Nevada. Presented on the world's largest indoor stage, a full acre in size, Michael caused a 500lb motorcycle to appear in mid-air, levitated 10ft into the air under bright lights at the front of the stage, created interactive magic with everyone in the theater at the same time, and melted his body through the center of a 7ft tall wall of solid, examined steel. 
Michael is currently starring in the CW television series "Masters of Illusion", hosted by Dean Cain (Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, Hit The Floor). Showcasing the world's top magicians and illusionists, Michael performs both grand illusions and interactive stage magic in front of the live studio audience, including shrinking a girl to the size of a basketball, vanishing borrowed rings and causing them to reappear baked inside a loaf of bread, and escaping from a platform suspended 20ft above the stage. Special guest Ace Young, star of American Idol and Hair on Broadway, assisted Michael onstage during the show for his "Walking Through Steel" illusion. Michael is also a headlining performer in "Masters of Illusion Live!" (based on the television show), the largest touring magic production in the world, and season 2 of "Masters of Illusion", featuring all new illusions, premieres on The CW in the summer of 2015.

June 2015


James Wilder, Actor/Director/Architect/Artist joins ML in studio to share is vast interests and his award winning Indie film, "3 Holes and a Smoking Gun" His Publicist Lori DeWaal gets all the credit for connecting us.
About James
For anyone who may have forgotten what a powerful and versatile actor James Wilder is, just check out his latest role in the indie psychological thriller "3 Holes And A Smoking Gun." For his stunning portrayal of a duplicitous washed up screenwriter, Wilder garnered a Best Lead Actor nod at the Red Dirt International Film Festival, Best Actor at the Winter Film Awards, the Independent Spirit Award at the Garden State Film Festival and the Recognition of Dramatic Excellence at the Buffalo Niagara Film Festival. Wrote the London Film Review: "(Wilder delivers) an excellent performance and burns up the screen." The film was also awarded the prestigious Grand Jury Prize at the Red Dirt International Film Festival and Best Screenplay honors at L.A.'s Downtown Film Festival. The film's DVD release is set for May 19.
The actor's indelible portrayals include an ambitious lawyer in the Emmy Award-winning drama "Equal Justice" (co-starring Sarah Jessica Parker) and the charmingly sleazy drug dealing seducer in "Melrose Place." His demonically authentic rendering of serial killer Carl Isaacs in the acclaimed Miramax film "Murder One" that led the New York Times to comment: "James Wilder, as Carl Isaacs, is a thoroughly malevolent character, one in whom evil rather than insanity seems to prevail." Wilder, however, is no one-trick pony. In fact, acting wasn't even on his radar when he started out as a street performer in his native San Francisco and later in LA, New York, and Europe. Renowned for juggling three running chain saws as part of his perilous crowd-pleasing act, Wilder was only 14 when he performed at the legendary Moulin Rouge in his mother's native Paris and was barely out of his teens when he staged a one-man show on Broadway. When Wilder did catch the acting bug he threw himself into it like everything else he does. He studied at the famed NY Actors Studio and quickly began getting high profile roles. At some point, however, the offers ceased being interesting and he turned his attention to his other many artistic pursuits.
Although not formally trained, he has become a formidable architect and designer who transformed a dozen empty lots throughout California into singularly unique residential art spaces that have attracted a stellar cast of celebrities and creative types. Over the years many of his properties-- collectively known as The Modern Villas -- have hosted long-term A-list tenants and served as sites for numerous photo shoots and exclusive events. One of his homes was even recognized by HGTV -alongside a Frank Lloyd Wright property -- as among LA's top three architectural gems. He also designs exclusive leather jackets and jewelry, refurbishes vintage furniture that he finds at auctions and flea markets, collects classic cars and commits to acting projects only when it inspires.
"3 Holes And A Smoking Gun" is one such project.

About Brian 
Brian Hooks is a highly prolific actor, comedian, producer, writer, and director. In addition to his starring roles in feature films (such as the 2008 smash hit, Fool's Gold, with Matthew McConaughey) as well as television (most notably as a series regular on UPN's Eve from 2003-06), Brian has also enjoyed remarkable success as a leading star, producer and director in numerous highly profitable independent films. Brian's first major role in film occurred as the central character in the urban classic, Phat Beach (1996), which was written and directed by Doug Ellin (creator of HBO's Entourage). The success of Phat Beach ignited considerable demand in Hollywood for Brian, as he thereafter landed roles in many blockbuster films: High School High (1996), Bulworth (1998), Beloved (1998) and Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me (1999). The big-screen notoriety was accompanied by his concurrent guest starring roles in many television series in the late 1990s, such as Cracker, NYPD Blue, Moesha, ER and The Parkers. 
This decade, while furthering his on-camera success with additional major roles in popular films such as Soul Plane (2004), Brian began to refine his position by redirecting some of his efforts to the off-camera aspects of production. After developing and producing a low-budget film which produced a remarkable five-thousand percent return (5000%) on investment, Q: The Movie, Brian was first able to observe the distinct advantages, and lucrative nature, of successfully creating and developing motion pictures. As a result, and backed by major film distributors such as MGM, Brian began to produce independent films in between his many film/television acting roles. Brian's procession of straight-to-DVD films have been so wildly popular and successful throughout urban America that he was once anointed "The King of DVD" by the urban media. Currently, his production career remains as stirring as ever, as he released a horror film thriller, 7eventy5ive (2008) (where Brian also makes his directorial debut). He starred in FOX Studios series The Ropes (2012) produced by Vin Diesel. He recently celebrated the success of his theatrical feature Laughing to the Bank (2013), which was written, produced, directed, and starring Brian. He's just wrapped production on the second season on the highly buzzed about Centric/BET show According to Him and Her.

Erica Austin, Creator of The "Against the Grain" app calls in from Chicago, IL to share her world travel stories and what led her to creating the adventurer tomboy Leslie.
About Erica
"My childhood was not the norm," reveals the Chicagoland resident. "I was born in Germany, lived in England and then in Nigeria, traveled Europe, vacationed in Amsterdam, and went to high school in the states. I was a fifth culture kid. I had to mix the German, with the English, with the Nigerian, with the American to form my own culture. I didn't really fit in anywhere and neither does Leslie in, 'Against the Grain.' It was great growing up around the world, but because of the different accents and customs I picked up along the way, I was constantly made fun of for it. It is my hope that Leslie inspires young girls and boys to realize that it is alright to be different and you are fine just being who you are!"
About the app
The "Against the Grain" app is an innovative platform that will change the way comics are viewed and read. Austin, along with her team of dedicated illustrators and animators, are changing the landscape of the comic industry and turning the rules inside out.

Dr. William Spady calls in from Utah to share his vast knowledge of the USA needing a paradigm shift in the way we are educating our future leaders and students.
About Dr. Spady
He is the head of ChangeLeaders. He is a sociologist and the self-proclaimed father of Outcome-Based Education (OBE). OBE is referred to by over 20 different names including Systemic education restructuring, Performance Based Education, Standards based education reform, High Performance Learning, Total Quality Management, Transformational Education, and Competency-Based Education.
His research is still widely cited in nations such as Australia which are still adopting OBE. Nevertheless, the names have been changed in the US largely due strong negative responses to these programs when they have been introduced to actual students and parents. All of these titles refer to a similar philosophy and a plan which implements radical and "systemic" change into schools. Many have researched the thousands of articles on the internet referring to Spady, with many showing the beneficial effects of his theories on actual children.
As detailed in his 2013 book Opening to Greater Realities, Dr. William Spady's 'amazing journey of spiritual awakening' began in 1975 when he participated in the Basic Training of a west-coast human potential development organization called Lifespring. Over the next decade he benefitted enormously from a series of advanced Lifespring workshops. In 1987, his work with a psychic named Barbara Binkley gave him a whole new perspective on the nature of his soul and its past incarnations.

As a mother of a child who endured 14 surgeries in 13 years, I never realized the luxury of having top surgeons down the street that had all of the knowledge to do the best job for my son.

What makes us so lucky to live in a country with everything we need to get help for our children, while others are so unfortunate. I work every day with a committed staff and Board to ensure that EVERY child and EVERY parent gets the surgery they need to live a long, healthy childhood. Medical care should not be optional or impossible.

Catherine Falk, Daughter of the late actor Peter Falk, joins ML in studio to speak about a bill she's introduced in NYC for visitations rights for adult children when their parent(s) have remarried.
About Catherine
Catherine Falk, the daughter of actor Peter Falk and Alyce Falk. Mr. Falk divorced Catherine's mother when she was 5 years old and remarried the following year. For 30 years, Mr. Falk maintained a loving relationship with Catherine despite constant interference by his second spouse. In 2008, Mr. Falk became completely incapacitated as a result of advanced dementia, possibly related to Alzheimer's disease. Mrs. Falk, however, failed to inform Mr. Falk's children of his condition and refused to allow his children to visit their ailing father. In December 2008, Catherine filed a petition for conservator-ship of her father in the Los Angeles Superior Court in order to find out her father's medical condition and obtain the right to visit her father. There is nothing within the Probate Code, however, that provides a child with the right to visit their ailing father, leaving it completely within the discretion of the court to grant such a right. After 7 months of very expensive litigation and two days of trial, the Court placed Mr. Falk in conservator-ship, appointed Mrs. Falk as the conservator, and ordered the conservator to allow Catherine to visit her father. Although the Court found that Catherine's actions in bringing the conservator-ship petition benefited the conservatee, it awarded Catherine only a fraction of her attorney's fees because she brought the conservator-ship petition in part for her personal benefit in order to obtain the right to visit her father.Even after the conservator-ship proceeding was concluded, Mrs. Falk continued to interfere with the relationship between Mr. Falk and his daughters. Although Catherine fought for her right to visit Mr. Falk, his other daughter Jackie did not do so. As a consequence, she was unable to visit with her father for the last three years of his life. Further, Mrs. Falk did not notify Mr. Falk's daughters when he was hospitalized in June 2011. Mrs. Falk also did not notify Mr. Falk's daughters when Mr. Falk died. Instead, they learned of the death of their father from media reports and their attorney. Mrs. Falk buried Mr. Falk without notifying his daughters.

Chris Gardner, Nadage August & Vincent J. Issac stars of the stage play "Sunset Baby" written by Dominique Morisseau.
About the play
A secret cache of letters brings together a former Black Power leader, his estranged daughter and her drug-dealing boyfriend in a powerful story of family and activism. 
Nina is a fiercely independent hustler and her boyfriend, Damon, is a thug, but they both are dead set on breaking from this life and finding a way out. When Kenyatta, a former Black Liberation leader and Nina's estranged father, shows up on her doorstep hoping to reunite and reconcile the past, Nina's life plan is thrown askew."The play explores the gaps between generations, movements and the effect that absent fathers have on their young daughters," said Morisseau. "That dynamic is so rarely examined on the stage: we usually talk about the effect it has on young black boys, but what about our girls?" "When Kenyatta reaches out to Nina shortly after her mother's passing, he has high hopes of burying the wounds of the past," she explained. "What he finds instead is a vengeful daughter who embodies everything contrary to the movement he fought in."

BARBARA GOLDBERG PRESIDENT & FOUNDER of "Wells Brings Hope" joins ML in studio to share her passion for clean water in NIGER, West Africa.
About Barbara
A native New Yorker, she began a very exciting advertising and marketing career on Madison Avenue. She founded Responsive Research, Inc. and spent over thirty years as a marketing consultant, conducting focus groups for Fortune 500 companies, including Bank of America, Coca-Cola, American Airlines, Johnson & Johnson, General Motors, General Mills, IBM and 3M to name a few. In 1975, she moved to Los Angeles where she continued to work and raise two children. In 1993, she founded Salon Forum, a non-business venture, to bring women together in her home for monthly events that support personal enrichment and connection. It has grown to include over 800 women.
In March of 2008, Barbara and other women of Salon Forum were inspired by one of its speakers, Gil Garcetti, to start "Wells Bring Hope." She saw it as an opportunity to "give back" and so decided to devote her full time to saving lives in West Africa. In January of 2009, she was one of six women who went to Niger, a life-changing experience. She began speaking to community groups and schools to inspire others to take up this cause.
About Wells Bring Hope
Wells Bring Hope is committed to drilling wells to bring safe water and sanitation to rural villages in Niger, West Africa, the poorest country in the world where contaminated water kills innocent victims, most often infants and young children. The burden of getting water falls upon women and girls who walk back-breaking miles every day to find water. The result? Girls don't go to school and women have no time to work productively to generate income.

Sgt Randy Franklin, (RET. LAPD) joins ML in studio to enlighten us on his initiative "The Police Liability Insurance Act". It would save tax payers a half billion dollars for police mis conduct and why it would make sure cops who are doing things and breaking the laws of their own handbook are held accountable for their actions .
About Randy
Until it all went bad, Randolph Franklin used to talk with pride about his life in the Los Angeles Police Department. Wear a badge for nearly half of your 50 years and somewhere along the way it becomes more than just a job. He was proud as well of the life he built on Woodlawn Avenue -- an unremarkable street set amid the gang violence and poverty of the city's southern swath. It's an odd place for a cop to live. But it was where a black kid from a Mississippi trailer park managed to buy a real house. It was where he turned an old, beat-up bungalow into a real home with dark red trim, marble fireplaces and trendy bamboo stalks along the edge of the lawn. In the early morning darkness of May 25, 2006, Franklin's two worlds -- his life on Woodlawn and his life in the LAPD -- collide
Franklin had no idea what his own Police Department would want with him. He asked for time to roust his 7-year-old daughter and 3-year-old son. He had 20 minutes, the SWAT officer said, or police would come in and get him.Before Franklin pulled open the front door and walked into the blinding glare of spotlights, he put himself between his little boy and girl and took their hands in his own. "I wanted the police to be able to see our hands," he recalls. "I didn't want to give them any reason to shoot us."Franklin is a tightly wound man. When he describes the LAPD's six-hour search of his house, his jaw clenches and he seethes words like "degrading" and "humiliating." He recalls how he was made to sit in the back of a police van with his children, guarded by someone wearing the same uniform he wore each day. He remembers how neighbors gathered to gawk as drug-sniffing dogs were led inside, dogs that left paw prints on his bed. He talks about the quiet fury he felt as his demands for an explanation were ignored. "They came into my house," he says. "That's my family. My reputation." 

Dick Gregory, Legendary Activist & Iconic Comedian calls in from D.C. to share his vast wisdom, humor and love with Mother Love and the world. He is coming to LA 4/25/15 to share his love up close at Maverick Flats on Crenshaw Blvd. Its a part of 2015 COMICS ROCK! CONVENTION.
About Dick 
Dick Gregory entered the national comedy scene in 1961 when Chicago's Playboy Club (as a direct request from publisher Hugh Hefner) booked him as a replacement for white comedian, "Professor" Irwin Corey. Until then Gregory had worked mostly at small clubs with predominantly black audiences (he met his wife, Lillian Smith, at one such club). At one performance he won over an audience that included southern white convention goers — that the Playboy Club offered him a contract extension from several weeks to three years. By 1962 Gregory had become a nationally known headline performer, selling out nightclubs, making numerous national television appearances, and recording popular comedy albums.
Through the 1960s, Gregory spent more time on social issues and less time on performing. He participated in marches and parades to support a range of causes, including opposition to the Vietnam War,world hunger, and drug abuse. In addition, Gregory fasted in protest more than 60 times, once in Iran, where he fasted and prayed in an effort to urge the Ayatollah Khomeini to release American embassy staff who had been taken hostage. The Iranian refusal to release the hostages did not decrease the depth of Gregory's commitment; he weighed only 97 lbs when he left Iran.

In 2001, Gregory announced to the world that he had been diagnosed with a rare form of Cancer. He refused traditional medical treatment – chemotherapy –and with the assistance of some of the finest minds in alternative medicine, put together a regimen of a variety of diet, vitamins, exercise, and modern devices not even known to the public, which ultimately resulted in his reversing the trend of the Cancer to the point where today he is 100% Cancer free. Gregory's going public with his diagnosis has helped millions of his fans around the world to understand what Cancer specialists have been trying to explain for decades, which is that "Cancer is curable." Gregory was honored recently at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., by a sold out house and a tribute hosted by Bill Cosby, with special tributes by Mrs. Martin Luther King Jr., Stevie Wonder, Isaac Hayes, Cicely Tyson, Mark Lane, Marion Barry and many more. His most recent book, Callus On My Soul, (Longstreet Press, Atlanta, Ga.) which became a best-seller within weeks of publication, is an autobiography that updates his earlier autobiography (Nigger), because as Dick says, "I've lived long enough to need two autobiographies which is fine with me. I'm looking forward to writing the third and fourth volumes as well."
In 2001, Gregory escaped death once again when a massive tree fell on his car in a storm in Washington D.C. crushing it completely, causing him to have to be extricated from the car by emergency crews. One witness said, "I knew the driver and his passengers had died when I saw the tree fall." Gregory said, "I knew that God had more work for me to do when I saw the tree falling. " He saved his own life by driving into the oncoming lanes of traffic. The word of the accident circulated the globe immediately in the media, underscoring the power, influence, and support that Gregory has earned from people of all nations. Doctor's at George Washington Hospital refused to release Gregory for a few days causing his first-ever "State of the Union Address" to African Americans to be delayed by a month. Gregory gave the first "State of The Union" address live on the Internet from Los Angeles on April 21st. Now the Internet address is the latest offering on a 3 CD set. Dick Gregory 21st Century "State Of The Union".

Herbert Dodell, Restraining Order Expert joins ML for both 2 & 3 O'Clock hours to share his vast knowledge, compassion and his stories from 3 sides of the law as Defender, Prosecutor and Judge.
His book, "From The Tench to the Bench " is due in late 2015.
About Herbert
Legal expert Herbert Dodell has extensive experience as a transactional and trial lawyer, Judge Pro Tem, mediator and arbitrator. He has been hearing and resolving restraining order cases for a number of years.
In fact, he's been on all three sides—as attorney for the Petitioner, as legal counsel for the Respondent, and as a Superior Court judge (pro tem) presiding over the case—so he understands all aspects:
· The vital need for the law and how to utilize it when necessary
· The benefits of filing a civil action to effect a more satisfactory result and avoid abusing the § 527.6 statute
· How to defend oneself when someone does file a capricious, false, or malicious petition against you

He's read many hundreds of applications. He's presided over several hundred cases, including prove ups where only the Petitioner is present. Dodell has granted five to 10 percent of those petitions.
During the past 50 years of his highly diverse law practice - exclusive of cases he prosecuted as a Deputy District Attorney of Los Angeles County - he's tried 99 jury trials, both civil and criminal, in both state and federal courts, a number of which resulted in multi-million dollar verdicts, and a substantial number of non-jury trials, with similar results.
He successfully argued before the California Supreme Court in the case of Essex Insurance vs. Five Star Dye House, Inc. which created landmark authority in the area of insurance law, including an insurance company's obligation to provide a defense where its insured has been sued. He is a published author in insurance law and has lectured frequently on the subject.
Previously, he's served as Director of Business Affairs for Warner Brothers where he supervised the legal department, negotiated agreements with major entertainment individuals/entities, and administered the studio facility.
*Judge Herbert Dodell no longer hears restraining order cases. He's chosen, at this time, not to accept assignments in that court as he's a consultant on the subject and wants to avoid any argument of a conflict of interest. He is now assigned to civil litigation, unlawful detainers, and small claims court, including appeals.


Shae Williams, Singer/Songwriter/Actress joins Mother Love in studio to share her soulful voice and passion for the stage.
About Shae
Every now and then, there comes a talent well beyond their years in the business that is hard to explain just how and why they arrived at their destiny. Perhaps (Shae) Keisha Williams was created for the purpose of entertaining others with her gifts of singing and acting even before she knew it. Shae possesses that something special which always placed her in the spotlight. It was Shae's church, Greater St. Marys MBC of Lake Charles, Louisiana, that first took notice of her powerful voice and on-stage brilliance at age 5. Growing up in the church like most African American young ladies in the south, gospel music laid down the foundation of her delivery and gave Shae the experience of developing an on-stage presence. Throughout her childhood, Shae took advantage of participating in every choir and theatrical production she could. Shae enjoyed taking a journey with her audience and realized at an early age that her life's purpose was to deliver a message through performing. By high school, Shae became an impressive all-state band clarinetist and a coveted all-state choir member. "I had scholarships coming from all over. I couldn't go to a festival or perform anywhere without recruiters speaking to me." During her studies of classical and jazz music at McNeese, her sharp attention to detail and creative edge became more refined. With an academic classical background in hand and the determination of a rising star, Shae followed her dreams and moved to Nashville, Tennessee, in 2002.This natural talent continues to practice live arts in true renaissance fashion, performing in urban theatre and currently recording her latest R&B album. Shae's critically acclaimed team includes Grammy nominated producers Alvin Garrett, whose musical catalog includes Joe, Johnny Gill, and Ruben Studdard, producer Roger Ryan whose production and performance credits include Whitney Houston, Wynonna Judd, Faith Evans, Oleta Adams and Kirk Franklin and Michael J Gaines, whose musical credits includes Cher, Kelly Price, Eric Clapton, Anointed, The Pointer Sisters and Shirley Murdock. A down south girl born with the gift of bringing life to the stage – Shae has the charisma to draw you in and the sensual appeal to keep you on the edge of your seat wanting more.

Playing at The Lillian Theater
About Denise
I was born in Honolulu Hawaii as Denise Yvonne Dowse (theatrically known at Norfolk State as Yvonne DuShay) the daughter of US Naval Officer Captain & Mrs. Herbert B. Dowse, both of whom are now unfortunately deceased. With a BA in English/Theatre, and an understanding of Physical Education (Thanks Coach Archie!), a plane ticket in hand and a diploma carrying Cum Laude graduate of Norfolk State University, I left the United States to travel to Bremerhaven, Germany to visit my parents who were stationed there at the time. My plan was to hang out and travel for a few months and then head off to New York to tackle Broadway - HA!! It was 7 1/2 years before I would return to the States and of all places, move to Los Angeles, California, where I've been for the past 20 plus years
If you do any television watching or channel surfing you may have caught me as Vice-Principal Mrs. Teasley on the long-running hit Beverly Hills 90210. I've guest-starred on shows such as Criminal Minds, Bones, Charmed, The Mentalist, The Guardian, ER, Any Day Now, Party of Five and the list has been blessed to continue! 
Some of my feature film work includes The Call with Halle Berry, Ray, Coach Carter and a co-star in Biodome.But always coming back "home" to the boards, I've done theatre around LA and have been seen doing; Three Times a Lady, for colored girls, Mysteries in a Silver Box, Club Termina, Long Time Since Yesterday, The Jackie Robinson Story, South of Where We Live, Hamlet (with the Los Angeles Women's Shakespeare Company), Othello and Life and Death: the Vaudeville Show which traveled to Cuba. I started directing in LA in 1995 with Long Time Since Yesterday by P.J Gibson (nominated for 6 NAACP Image Awards), and I won the 1995 NAACP Image Award as Best Director and Dramalogue Award for Best Director then I followed that by directing an original piece "The Chest" by Angela deJospeh for which I received 1996 NAACP Image Award as Best Director (nominated for 10 NAACP Image Awards). I also volunteer as a director for the Dangerfield Institute's annual Celebrity Roast to raise money for orphans and foster children at Christmas. I have directed Debbi Morgan's One Woman Show along with Malcolm-Jamal Warner, Bonita Brisker & Vanessa Williams shows – also One person shows. For the past 17 years I've spent my weekends at "Amazing Grace Conservatory - a Performing Arts Institute" for inner city youth ages 8-18 as their Resident Director, and an acting and speech. I directed their first full stage production, The Wiz done in the spring of 1997 with 75 - count em - chilluns and they ALL had at least one line, it was MAGIC!!!!! I do have a few more gray hairs because of it but it was well worth the hair dye. :) The production received 6 NAACP Image Award Nominations. I gotta tell ya - working with these children have changed my life and saved it. I've watched what a little bit of theatre and a whole lot of love and positive reinforcement can do for a child. We've had kids leave their gangs, kids go back and get their GED's, and have watched shy little flowers blossom – so, no matter how tired, depressed or whatever might be wrong with my day, after leaving my rehearsals and classes with them, my day is righted. I'm still single and live in a cute little house in South Los Angeles with my 3 love muffins – Buster (Lab Ridgeback), Shadow (Staffordshire Pit) and Gabby (pit bull). I do still enjoy the travel and this summer did the most!! Perhaps 80 o/o was work but you know me, I will always find time for a bit of fun! Denise Dowse was born on February 21, 1958 in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA. She is an actress and director, known for Requiem for a Dream (2000), Pleasantville (1998) andStarship Troopers (1997).

Norma J. Richards, Microbiologist/Science Teacher, Wife, Mother of 3 and Author of "Free Ride to College: A Guide for Grooming Your Children for Full Academic Scholarships, joins Mother Love in studio as part of her So Cal Tour to educate parents and others on this importany topic.
About Norma
What Norma Richards has accomplished is nothing short of a miracle. She managed to send her 3 children to college on FULL academic scholarships in engineering—saving her family close to a half million dollars in college expenses! Now known as the "Free Ride to College Lady," Norma Richards is on a mission to help other parents do the same. Norma's new book, "Free Ride to College: A Guide to Grooming Your Kids for Academic Scholarships," shares with the world, a simple plan to acquiring hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarship money! Faced with the prospect of having to earn or borrow hundreds of thousands of dollars to send three kids to college, Norma thought, "there has to be a better way!" A microbiologist and science teacher by trade, Norma set out to prove her hypothesis that her three kids could be groomed to earn a full academic scholarship—in spite of the fact that one child was labeled as a candidate for special education, another labeled as having Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and the youngest was almost legally blind. This "miracle mom" let nothing stand in her way. She did her homework and discovered there really is a science to acquiring a full academic scholarship to college. Her three children have proven it—and Norma's book, "Free Ride to College" is a hypothesis that works! A native of Flint, Michigan, Norma is a successful entrepreneur and certified science teacher in the state of Ohio. She earned a bachelor of science in Microbiology from Howard University in Washington D.C., and has called Columbus, Ohio home for over 30 years. Today, Norma travels the country inspiring, motivating and teaching parents and students how they too can earn a "Free Ride to College." And without the burden of their kids' college expenses, Norma and her husband now spend their time traveling the country, playing with their grandchildren and relishing quiet evenings enjoying HGTV and their favorite Turner Classic Movies—life is good! Free Ride to College: A Guide to Grooming Your Kids for Academic Scholarships, is available in eBook or print by visiting

About Charles
For over 30 years former Senator Charles W. Walker has dedicated his life and career to public service. Not only did he serve five terms in the Georgia House of Representatives and six terms in the Georgia State Senate, but he was the first African American chosen to serve as Senate Majority Leader; the second-highest elected position in the Senate Leadership. It is based on his profound personal journey, going from being the son of a poor sharecropper in the South to a successful politician and businessman, that inspired him to write this fascinating motivational memoir now available on Amazon and, "From Peanuts to Power: The Road to Wealth, Success and Happiness" (Reklaw Publishing, March 2015).
Walker has retired from politics, but he is far from "retired". In addition to now being an Author, he is also an in-demand Motivational Speaker, Political Analyst, and colorful (often controversial) media guest.
In his book, Walker not only outlines his fascinating journey of going from being a poor, young boy in the south whose father was a share-cropper, to working challenging jobs in his young adulthood, such as a Peanut Salesman, to eventually becoming a political powerhouse and successful entrepreneur & business owner.
Throughout this compelling life story he carefully weaves in the importance of wealth accumulation, the steps to achieve it, and 27 key life lessons he learned for overcoming extreme adversity.
Walker's main goal for writing this book is to help get people out of the poverty trap that millions of Americans are stuck in.

About Babs & Saba
Saba and Babs first met nineteen years ago through Women in Film and quickly became close friends. They've shared years of ups and downs, laughter and sadness, and have supported each other through life.
They have both been stand up comediennes, writers, producers, directors and actresses. As best friends, their chemistry and timing allows them to be the "one shot wonders" that they are in their YouTube show Classic Bikini Divas.
They both accidentally got into fitness and health when Babs chose to compete after losing thirty-five pounds and Saba thought it might be something to give her credibility for the fun workouts she designed. Being in show business most of their lives, they decided to document their year of preparing for their first Natural Bodybuilding Association competition together. Three years later, their YouTube show Classic Bikini Divas is still going strong. Surprisingly to both of them, learning so much about fitness and health became a bigger part of their lives than expected. A year later, they both became certified personal trainers and created new fitness websites so that they could share what they've learned with others. What makes these two women so special is that now Babs is turning 60 and Saba is turning 72, and they are still competing and winning!

Shaun Bullard, Star of "Match Made in Heaven" joins Mother Love in studio to share his experience as America's first African American Bachelor.
About Shaun
As a native of Philadelphia, Shawn Bullard is proud to be a 34-year-old owner of a successful real estate development company in the metropolitan area of the city for almost a decade. The successful businessman is a serial entrepreneur who owns several businesses in addition to his real estate development company, including a hair salon and restaurant in the city. He has been recognized by several notable organizations for his achievements as a real estate developer and investor. In 2009, the Fox School of Business announced Shawn as the winner of the distinguished "Be Your Own Boss" Bowl, making him the first African- American to win this honor.
Through all of his success, Shawn has remained humble because it did not come easy. As one of two brothers growing up in one of the toughest towns in America, Shawn had to overcome many trials and tribulations in order to stay on course. Shawn's mother, Maggie Bullard, played a significant role in his determination and drive. This drive would inspire Shawn to walk on to the Temple University football team, which resulted in a full scholarship for football. Shawn thrived in both academics and athletics while at Temple University. He credits football for his confidence, tenacity and hustle especially after losing his father to cancer when he was 22 years old. Not only did he start for the football team, he was also an All-American in track and field. His mother, Maggie, could not have been more proud the day he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Sport and Recreation Management with a minor in Tourism and Hospitality. Although Shawn was ready to enter the business world, his performance as a star football player at Temple led to a three-year run in the NFL. After his stint at the NFL, Shawn dedicated himself to manifesting his dream of owning a thriving business that would one day be family owned.


Nick Nielsen, Actor and Documentary Film Maker joins Mother Love in studio to share his passion for finding the truth about all the Bruce Lee impersonators with his film, "I'M NOT BRUCE"
About Nick
He was born in Texas but spent his child hood growing up in Washington and later southeast Missouri. He attended the Seattle Film Institute's total film immersion program. During his time at SFI, Nick was involved in over 20 projects that ranged from short films to documentaries to commercials. After graduating from SFI's program in 2012, he re-located to the greater Los Angeles area and began interning with Trigger Street Productions and Perfect Storm Entertainment until the beginning of 2014. After being around both major studios and smaller production companies, Nick, along with his wife/producing partner, Teresa Nielsen, and producer Isaac Taylor, decided to start their own production company with the hopes of producing and creating their own unique vision of entertainment.
The main project: I'M NOT BRUCE
The main project I'm working on is a feature length documentary on the subject of Bruceploitation (or Bruce Lee impersonators). A sub genre of films that came out after the untimely deaths of Bruce Lee that went on throughout the 1970's-80's. There several actors that went under pseudo names (I.E. Bruce Li, Bruce Le, etc.) and gave film goers the impression they were watching an authentic Bruce Lee film, when in fact, they weren't. The craze eventually died down in the mid-late 80's and most of the actors disappeared into obscurity. This sub genre has been mentioned in previous Bruce Lee documentaries but is always quickly looked over, like the black sheep of kung fu films. No one seems to want to talk about these films. But I do!
I'm trying to get as much research as possible before our ultimate goal, which is to travel to Asia (China, Japan, Korea, The Philippines, etc.) in order to find these Bruce Lee impersonators and interview them about this strange sensation of films. Other projects:CRITICAL FUMBLE

About Rhonda
She is probably best known as the star and host of USA Network's long-running, popular Friday night movie series, "USA: Up All Night." For eight years and 400 shows, RHONDA converted an entire generation into insomniacs as they became addicted to her tongue in cheek humor and self-deprecating antics. To quote the Los Angeles Times "She may not look the part, but RHONDA SHEAR is a comedy pioneer." The NY Post remarked, "There's no such thing as a little body language when you're talking about SHEAR, a petite, Barbie-shaped bundle of energy and intelligence which is likely to be overshadowed by other attributes." Even though Playboy named her "One of Television's Sexiest Stars" and Cable Guide heralded her as "One of Cable's Most Beautiful Women," there is more to RHONDA SHEAR than meets the eye.
SHEAR recently married her childhood sweetheart after reuniting on After seeing each other for the first time in 20 years, RHONDA and VAN FAGAN eloped after just 15 days. Van and Rhonda reside in Los Angeles, and not only are partners in love, but in business. SHEAR ENTERPRISES LLC was born after sharing one of Van's delicious Cajun dinners. After spending so many years in front of the camera, RHONDA decided she needed a quick and painless way to shed a few extra pounds. The newlyweds, wanting to work side-by-side, came up with SHEAR SHAPEWEAR over shrimp ettoufee. "I'm from New Orleans, have curves, love good food and I am not giving that up!" A cry that other women totally related to, SHEAR designs beautiful foundations for all body types. "I want all women to feel and look their best at a moment's notice. You can "Slip into Slim" with my "Secret Slender". I know what women go through everyday to try to zip up that favorite skirt".
With her successful line of lightweight seamless panties, beautiful waist cinchers, cutting edge control hosiery and camisoles with built in bras, SHEAR has taken the Hollywood concept of looking fabulous to women across the country. RHONDA SHEAR feels that "Foundation IS Where Fashion Starts." The concept has taken off! RHONDA'S exclusive celebrity line is in demand at the "HOME SHOPPING NETWORK" and HSN.COM.
RHONDA SHEAR is living proof that comedy can be sexy, and sexy can be smart. "The problem is that I'm this nice girl trapped in this bad girl's body," she says with a wink. SHEAR SHAPEWEAR is the beginning of another career as a designer for this cult goddess. SHEAR has certainly carved out her own niche in the entertainment pantheon, and in the words of The New York Post ... "Is worth staying UP for!"

About Judy
If an actor's strength lies in his or her life's experiences, then Judy Karman is as strong as Hercules. Growing up second generation in a small San Diego community, where her father was a tailor who became a local icon, Judy and her fraternal twin, Ruthie, were born late in their parents' lives. Their mom moved to San Diego from New York when she was eight months old and their dad was born and raised in San Diego. Starting over after raising two other children, Judy's parents were able to pass on many life experiences, enabling Judy to glimpse a world that she would later embrace as her own - show business. Her dad had spent time in Vaudeville, and after becoming a tailor, worked with many of the greatest names in the business, although as far as he was concerned, they were just everyday people. He passed this same humility on to his daughter Judy. Judy grew up, passionately took up tap dance classes, participated in Community Theater, and loved the summer evenings spent with her family in Balboa Park, attending the Starlight Musicals. She always dreamed she'd be up there on stage, performing for other families. That dream has never died. Judy spent time working in corporate America, serving as a trainer to both small and large groups and paving the way to her dream of performing for an audience. She also spent time as the only female and non-Sicilian on the Board of Directors of a Sicilian Culture Association in San Diego. During the 90's, she spent time behind the scenes, working with actors and producing movies. She even did a little acting herself and joined AFTRA, but the timing was not right and so she stepped back into her corporate roles. Judy has been a member of AFTRA since 1994, now SAG/AFTRA. Although she has just recently rejoined the world of acting, she has not been idle. She attended workshops and training sessions in San Diego and Hollywood, including 30 hours of intense training with accomplished director Tom Logan. Judy has appeared in the independent films, including "The Vision," which was created as part of the 24 hour Film Festival and later screened at the Portland Film Festival. She recently made a guest appearance on the Marie Osmond Show on the Hallmark Channel. That success lead to the show's producing asking her make a second appearance. The future indeed looks bright for this passionate comedic actress.

Amaru Lewis, Comic, Author Screen Writer, Father & Arthur Duane "King Arthur" Fields Producer, Screen Writer and CEO of King Arthur Productions join Mother Love in studio for a fun time about their careers and staying growing in the industry, Show Biz
About Amaru
If you needed a license to be a comic, this guy has one! Get this... his father was a notorious and very volatile pimp and his mother was a Jehovah's Witness... a schizophrenic Jehovah's Witness. Which means, if she knocks on your door, she'll answer it too! If that doesn't earn him the right to do stand up, then nothing will! As a skilled and accomplished screenwriter Amaru can adapt to his environment and make any situation into a humorous story. His comedic story telling can be mesmerizing at times. The screenwriter in him makes him visual but the kid and the quick wit in him makes for a good time at any club.
Amaru is the type of comedian who will the say things you didn't even know you wanted to say. The audience can be very diverse, black, white, in between. Amaru is able to connect with everyone in an attendance. It's more like listening to a friend telling you funny and relevant humorous stories about life, than simply listening to a "comedian" do "stand up". If Bill Cosby, Richard Pryor and Michael Duncan Clark decided to have a kid together, it would come out as Amaru. He's edgy without being crass, obviously loves his kids like crazy, and his smooth baritone delivery make him easy to listen to.

Helen Woo, Author of "SELF-AID - Inspirations to Turn Struggles into Success," brings her light, love & laughter as she joins Mother Love for a lively upbeat conversation!
About Helen
Helen Woo was born and raised in Chinatown, San Francisco, from a traditional old-school style Chinese family who immigrated to America only two months before her birth. Aside from having dealt with a very difficult upbringing, she was faced with numerous challenges in her life, including physical ailments (chronic pain from a severe injury, migraine headaches, acid reflux, fibromyalgia and arthritis), emotional and mental trauma (depression, abuse and family death), drug and nicotine addiction.As a single mother today, life is just beginning for Helen Woo, and she finally finds herself genuinely happy inside and out. Physically, emotionally and mentally healthy, she is here now to share her success stories.. And that gives her more incentive to want to help others get to a better place. Both men and women alike can overcome any bad situation if they only apply themselves. Helen Woo endured her life. It wasn't living. She experienced self-esteem issues, mental and physical abuse, grief, substance abuse, betrayal and depression. Yet she still managed to have a successful career that allowed her to build a bit of a nest egg. Later, when she invested it in a partnership with a close friend, only to have her partner steal all of the assets, that betrayal was the last straw. Alone and raising a son, Woo knew something had to change-and it wasn't the world around her-it was the world within her.
SELF-AID--an acronym that stands for Self-Aid (self-help), Esteem, Love/Laughter, Freedom, Attitude, Integrity, Dream.

About Cheryl & Sunshine, Noodles and Me:
In 2009, Ash-Simpson was diagnosed with Stage IIA breast cancer just three days before her wedding. And not only was she preparing for her nuptials, but she was also planning a big move to Southeast Asia to begin her new life with her husband, Richard, who re-located to Malaysia for a new job. "Sunshine, Noodles and Me" chronicles Ash-Simpson's treatment; loss of her hair, and her new lease on life in a country, far, far away. The documentary was shot on location in Malaysia, Singapore, Indianapolis and Dallas. Interestingly, Ash-Simpson's mother, now 78, was diagnosed with early stages of breast cancer at the age of 69; but today, both women are surviving and thriving.

Based in Malaysia, the international trade compliance executive, traveled halfway around the world to be a part of the sisterhood of women in pink -- which also included television personality Joan Lunden -- all fighting the good fight, against breast cancer.

The band then embarked on tour with Britney Spears. Following the break-up of No Authority, Ricky became the lead vocalist of Harlow from 2004-2009 during which time he released "Unstoppable" (2005), mixed and engineered by Jay Baumgardner at NRG Studios and produced by Grammy-winning producer Randy Cantor (Ricky Martin).

About Muaythai
Muay Thai Academy is the first Muay Thai gym in U.S, which has the original Muay Thai academic and training. We teach self-defense by using fist, feet, knee, and elbow as the weapons, which is called Muay Thai. For the past 18 years, the students not only here in the U.S. have acknowledged us but throughout the world. Our goal is to educate the students in the fighting style of Muay Thai. The goals are to improve coordination, stamina, fitness, bring discipline, modesty and have a bit of fun. We also offer competitions to enable student to gain fighting experience. We have trained majority of today's U.S elite champions and have been around for over 18 years. Muaythai is a martial art native to the country of Thailand. It is widely known as The Science of Eight Limbs because it requires its practitioners to be proficient with elbows, knees, kicks, and punches. Although the origins of Muaythai are not known, historical documents provide us with a scattered timeline showing the growth and transformation of Muaythai over the last seven to eight hundred years. Differing from the ring sport of today, Muaythai practitioners originally yielded their bodily weapons on the battlefield against foreign invaders and, at times, even against themselves. Civil disputes were often settled by way of Muaythai and many Thais practiced the art as a form of self-defense to protect themselves and their families. There were four major periods that helped to define Muaythai: they were the Sukhothai period, the Ayudhaya period, the Thonburi period, and the Ratanakosin period.

Laurie Kaman & Jane McCord are here to talk about their upcoming nonfiction film "LOWER 9" which is about the Lower 9th Ward in New Orleans and the mess that we've left there since Hurricane Katrina and the subsequent flood on August 29,2005. Today, almost 10 years later, there are still thousands of families displaced - still trying to make their way home! 


"The Spirit calls me, and I must go," said Sojourner Truth as she took leave of her family and set out to speak on behalf of women and advocated for abolishing slavery and promoted civil rights. A remarkable figure in history, Sojourner Truth's story is recreated for the stage in a powerful, musically infused, award-winning play that combines her actual words with slave songs and spirituals of the period. In honor of Black History Month, All the Way West Productions presents A Woman Called Truth, opening on Jan. 24at the Complex Ruby Theater in Hollywood. 
Chronicling Sojourner Truth's life from the day she was sold away from her family as a young child, to her earning her freedom and that of her children, to her famous extemporaneous speech at the Ohio Women's Rights Convention in 1851, known as "Ain't I a Woman?", Sandra Fenichel Asher's drama brings to life a fearless woman who did not allow her gender, race or lack of education stop her from becoming a champion of civil rights. Asher's two-act play has won numerous awards and accolades, earning the Joseph Campbell Award, and has been honored by the National Endowment for the Arts, the American Alliance for Theatre and Education, and the IUPUI Children's Theatre Symposium and is currently listed in Outstanding Plays for Young Audiences. 
"It's important to me that audiences see the truth about a woman called Truth. Every few years, I produce a play that celebrates Black artists or characters during Black History Month. What better way to do that then to bring the story of this courageous woman to the stage." says producer Harry Jones. 
Incorporating spirituals, slave songs and hymns, the play features three women and three men as well as a chorus for a cast of nine. Written with minimalist staging, the focus is on the words and lyricism of the time, with considerable attention to Sojourner Truth's own words by the playwright who approximated much of the title character's dialogue from published works and biographies by Olive Gilbert, Harriet Beecher Stowe and Francis Gage. 
This staging directed by D'Shaun A. Booker is faithful both to the playwright's vision and its original two-act version with dance, songs and a heavy concentration paid to the illumination of Sojourner Truth's personal and heroic story. 
A Woman Called Truth runs Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m.,Jan. 24 through March 1. There will be two preview performances on Thursday, Jan. 22 and Friday, Jan. 23 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $17-$22. The Complex Ruby Theater is located at 6476 Santa Monica Blvd. inHollywood, CA 90038. For reservations and information, call (310) 604-8158 or go

Stan Houston
Every actor dreams of that career-defining role, the one that lands him in a blockbuster film alongside big Hollywood stars. Well when actor Stan Houston was initially offered his 'big break' to read for the role of the racist antagonist Sheriff Jim Clark in the now Oscar nominated film, "Selma," he actually turned it down twice, and with good reason. Distributed by Paramount Pictures, Selma is a historical period piece that covers a critical episode in the civil rights movement. As a resident of Coffee County in the Southeastern area of Alabama, Houston actually lives in the same small town where Sheriff James G. Clark lived and died. Houston felt the dynamics of playing such a controversial role might just be too close to home. He eventually read for the role, and in a move showcasing director Ava DuVernay's dedication to authenticity, he was selected.
Houston has been acting professionally for six years now. "Selma" is his most significant booking to date. His larger than life portrayal of Sheriff Clark has garnered him international attention and acclaim. Performing directly alongside Oprah Winfrey, who plays civil rights activist Annie Lee Cooper, Houston's fiery, mean and unapologetic stance as Clark has left audiences stunned in hushed awe.

ML & Trayvon "Prime" Ellis discuss current events in the news 

Actor Clay Chappell is no newcomer to the big screen. As a working actor, he has landed some prime bit parts in several major films. He played a councilman alongside Dennis Quaid in the remake of "Footloose" and did a scene with Robert Duvall in the Billy Bob Thorton directed "Jayne Mansfield's Car." But his brief appearance in the cinematic drama, "Selma," a historical period piece distributed by Paramount Pictures, has been heralded as the showstopper which may just define his career. In "Selma," Chappell plays a southern registrar opposite Oprah Winfrey as Annie Lee Cooper, a Black women seeking to vote in 1965 when racial discrimination made voting very difficult. The scene, only a minute in length, sets the tone for the entire film, and is Oprah's only speaking role in the movie.
According to film critic, Derrick Bang "the scene with Oprah is a "landmark cinematic moment: a scene destined to be memorialized, and oft resurrected, for decades to come." Chappell's performance has been highlighted on talk shows across the country, including "Ellen," "The Tonight Starring Jimmy Fallon," "Barbara Walters," and "The Today Show." Not bad for an actor who has been working since 1996 to secure more than five lines in a film!
Chappell originally auditioned for the role of one of the klansmen in the film, but was asked by casting director Cynthia Stillwell to come back and read for the role of the registrar for the film's director, Ava DuVernay. After doing so, Chappell was asked back but couldn't make the third audition and thought maybe he had lost further consideration. When his agent at J Pervis Talent called him a week later, requesting a table read, he remained hopeful.

Traveling by canoe, plane, boat, train, on foot and hitching a ride on the occasional dump truck, David crossed some of the most remote Burmese terrain to capture the unique images found in the pages of the book.

Her handwritten endorsement of David's project asserts, "Truly an enchanting book - the pictures reflect the beauty and diversity of Burma faithfully."
"From the moment I first set foot in this magical land, I fell under its spell. I found it to be one of the most enthralling and visually captivating countries I have had the privilege to explore – truly a photographer's paradise," explains Heath, "I aspired to convey the soul of the beautiful Burmese people, their mystical culture and mysterious customs, in the most artistic way possible."

Karen Crespo, RN whom the doctors gave a 10% chance of surviving Bacterial Meningitis in 2010 after losing all her limbs,nose,top lip and part of her ear walks into to chat with ML with an awesome attitude and a joyful spirit!
After years of hard work in nursing school, Karen Crespo was finally enjoying the rewards of being a Registered Nurse at a Los Angeles hospital. But in 2011, Karen was diagnosed with a severe form ofbacterial meningitis. In order to save her life, doctors had no choice but to amputate all four of her limbs. With a less than 10% chance of survival, doctors and nurses were preparing family and friends for what they presumed inevitable. Thankfully, Karen survived a series of complications, reconstructive surgery procedures, and a 15 day coma.
Karen now has a second chance in life, but her life will never be the same. Karen has to make adjustments to her life with the help of modified equipment, accessible housing, and transportation.
We all want comfort and convenience in our homes, whether we have a disability or not. Karen's traditional home served her well when she was healthy, unfortunately it's not user-friendly now that she is living with limb loss. The ability to drive is equally important for her sense of independence. Driving means much more than simply getting from point A to B. When Karen lost her ability to drive she lost a significant part of her life and identity. When transportation doesn't work, other factors such as employment, health care, and economy are affected as well. Many of these necessary modifications are not covered by insurance or are very costly along with surgeries, specialty doctor visits, tooling aids for her activities of daily living, and medications. Thanks to technology, Karen was hopeful to live a normal life through therapy and customized prosthetics. But in late 2013, those prosthetics, which were specifically built to fit her, were stolen from her home. No one ever returned the stolen limbs despite the efforts of Karen, her family, and her friends. Today, Karen continues the fight for her prosthetics and independence through, and the fight against meningitis through her activities and outreach. (Read Karen's full story.)

Elijah King, Esq and his Mother Ra'Chel join Mother Love in studio to share his great news on becoming on of Unilever's New World Youth Leader in his quest to end hunger.
About Elijah King, Esq
My name is Elijah King Esq. and I am an actor, model, writer, director, and talk-show host. On this site you will have insight into my life as a child entrepreneur. I am 14 years old and strive to continue to walk through every door God opens for me. I hope you will learn how much it means to me to be in this business; To be an example to other kids who have dreams just like me. 
At the age of five, while living in Atlanta, GA, Elijah wanted to help address the issue of hunger in the community. He joined the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church and collected donations from people to help feed the homeless. Today, Elijah attends the City of Refuge Church and continues to help the homeless. He often can be found speaking to youth about following their dreams and making a difference in their community.
About Unilever Project Sunlight
Unilever Project Sunlight is helping Elijah King spread his message for a brighter future. It is Elijah's hope that there will be a future where no child goes to bed hungry.
There are 16 million children in America who are hungry. In the US, there is a skewed view of child hunger based on images of starving children from around the world. The truth is this could be anyone: a friend, a neighbor, a classmate. Now, he's helping us spread the word about hunger in America, and giving everyone a reason to Share A Meal. "Our moral foundation is at stake when we dispose of good food that could have helped another. How can we hold our heads high when we throw 70 billion pounds of food away a year while 16 million children in America have to go hungry for days, weeks, or even months? " In the US, one in five of Americans don't know where their next meal is coming from. Elijah is working hard to raise awareness of hunger in America and is doing so by sharing his visions for a brighter future by giving public speeches at schools and churches. Elijah has a dream for a bright future "Not only will every little boy and little girl in America have the food to survive, but no matter what their place in this world, we give them the respect and dignity to thrive in the face of difficulty."
Let's make this dream a reality. Help Elijah and us in seeing that no child should face hunger by visiting our Share A Meal page.

Kurt Koontz, Adventurer and Author of "A Million Steps" calls in from Boise, ID to share his life changing walk of 500 miles through El Camino de Santiago, Spain and how he got in 'touch' with himself, slowed downed his life spirit and relationships.
About Kurt 
Kurt Koontz grew up with a lot of the outdoors in Boise, Idaho. He studied business at the University of Puget Sound, then returned to his hometown to rise through the ranks as a sales executive for Micron Technology. While working, he traveled on business across the U.S. and the world. When he retired at age 36, he took to adventure travel—mostly by bicycle across Europe and in the Western U.S. and Canada. It wasn't until 2012 that he began writing about his adventures. That year, he walked the 500-mile El Camino de Santiago, the Spanish pilgrimage route dating from medieval times. This journey, he says, was a very different kind of travel. On the Camino, he lived moment to moment, not knowing where he would find the next meal or sleep the next night. As he walked the 1,300-year-old route, he heard unforgettable stories from other pilgrims and took a deeper look at his own life stories. Recorded in his journal and e-mails home, they became the foundation for his first book, A Million Steps, due out late this year.
He now lives and writes near family and friends, on a tree-lined creek in Boise.

Abdul Malik Abbott, Independent Video/Film/Documentary Maker and Jimi C. Dright, Jr. aka "Chopmaster J", Co Founder of the Hip Hop Band, "Digital Underground," join Mother Love in studio to chat about the group's 25th Anniversary and the making of their Documentary, "D.U. Days: Adventures in Digital Underground the Apprenticeship of Tupac Shakur," 
About Abdul
An Artist from birth and raised in Harlem, NY, Abdul Malik Abbott a former member of the Boys Choir of Harlem, attended the acclaimed High School of Music & Art as a painter and illustrator and grew up in the world of hip-hop. Wanting to follow in his father's footsteps as a photographer and filmmaker, Abdul received his (film) Bachelor's degree at the School of Visual Arts. He got his start in the biz working in the sound dept. on Spike Lee's "Do The Right Thing" & "Mo' Better Blues", as well as "Def by Temptation", "New Jack City" and 100's of commercials, movie & TV projects.
Abdul directed the hip-hop infused gangster drama entitled "State Property" (Lionsgate), starring Beanie Sigel & Jay-Z. Soon after a brief theatrical release, the modestly budgeted movie was released on home video and DVD and rose to be the 10th top selling video in the U.S. on Videoscan & Billboard and has grossed over 12 million to date. Currently Mr. Abbott is in post-production on a documentary chronicling the rise and fall of the hip-hop mega-group Digital Underground as well as developing several feature films and TV shows. Abdul also works as a videographer for such networks as BET, TV One, E! and Centric, shooting entertainment news programs and docs. He also serves as co-chair of the DGA's African American steering committee and for over 8 years has been instrumental in organizing informative industry panels and major events honoring fellow DGA members.
About "Chopmaster J"
Jimi C. Dright, Jr., best known as Chopmaster J, is a rap, jazz, and hip hop music artist, drummer, and producer who co-founded the group Digital Underground.[1] He also possesses the earliest known recordings of rap artist Tupac Shakur.
Recognized as one of the first hip hop bands, Digital Underground included Chopmaster J, Shock G, Money B, DJ Fuze and the then 18-year-old Tupac Amaru Shakur. The group's meteoric rise to fame in the early '90?s was accentuated with chart topping hits like "Doowutchyalike," "Freaks of the Industry," "Same Song" and "Kiss You Back." The band made waves with their colorful and costumed attire, animated stage antics and innovative dance styling and moves. Digital Underground is best remembered for turning hip hop on its proverbial head and invading the realm of pop with their 1990 pivotal Grammy nominated release "The Humpty Dance." "The Humpty Dance" climbed all the way to #11 on the pop charts, #7 on the R&B charts, and #1 on the Billboard Rap Singles chart. 
The group's contribution to history has tentacles that reach even further though. From their 12 inch drop, "Doowutchyalike" to their debut album "Sex Packets," D.U.'s music unfastened a door in hip hop that was previously non-existent, mixing mad merriment, mayhem and sex with rhyme, rhythm and rap. Factor in the detail that rap music's biggest legend, Tupuc Shakur, started his music career with the group as their roadie, dancer and emcee and the D.U. legacy is all but cemented in the annals of pop music history.

David C. Keeton, CEO of D.C. Keeton Home Improvements, joins Mother Love in studio to talk to us about the do's and don'ts of being a great contractor, tips on the importance of working together with the homeowner and how "He is the contractor YOU will LOVE after the job is finished".
About David
Ask anyone who has remodeled and they will tell you that the stress, the chaos, the feelings of anger, despair and frustration are all overwhelming at times. If you are about to undertake a remodeling project, stop and think about how it will affect your daily life.
The fact is, our industry is plagued with poor customer experiences. Most contractors either do not know or do not care how to properly deliver a quality construction project. They get business by offering an enticing cheaper price. Ultimately they use cheap labor and/or cheap materials. They show up late (if at all) and leave a mess or a poorly installed job. D.C. Keeton is the exact opposite of the contractor disaster stories you have heard.
When it comes to opening up your home, your most precious investment, to workers whom you know very little about, it is important that you feel a sense of trustworthiness. You need a team of licensed and bonded professionals, each an expert in their individual areas, to provide you with that security. You need to rest assured that the job will be done with proficiency and integrity in an expeditious manner.
D.C. Keeton Home Improvements is one of the most established and reliable remodeling companies in the greater Los Angeles area. Our objective is to consistently provide the highest quality products, reasonable pricing and exceptional customer service. Together, we can create a partnership to turn your vision into a creative and beautiful reality. We offer free consultations and estimates to find out if we are a match for one another.
Please email, or leave a voice message and your call will be returned promptly. I look forward to establishing a relationship for your current, and your future remodeling projects.

Melanie Rothschild, Artist & Author of "The Art of Mistakes" joins Mother Love in studio to share herpassionate love of art and how we ought to honor our mistakes. This tome is more a PRE-step-by-step guide than a 'how to' book. Whether you are a seasoned artist, or just getting started, learning to embrace and use mistakes can spell the beginning of a new chapter in your art-making the art you discover or re-discover within yourself is photography, writing, cooking or painting. 
Melanie Rothschild is a self-taught artist and a native of Los Angeles.
For over two decades her functional pieces have been sold in galleries and stores across the U.S. In 2007, she began the Paint and Air series, which heralded a major shift in her work. The Paint & Air series was born from a mistake. A gallon of spilled paint seemed too messy to clean until it had dried. Days later when it was ready to be chipped off the ground bit by bit, it came up in one glorious piece. Spilling paint became the craft . . . . an entirely new starting point. This then, becomes a painting in the most basic sense . . . . . all paint, no canvas, just paint and the air that has transformed it from liquid to solid. This "mistake" fed what was already a deep interest in the nature of the creative process and resulted in Melanie pursuing a graduate degree in the study of creativity.
How a "mistake" led her to find her creative voice and a new art technique, Exercises to help unlock your creativity 16 painting techniques to encourage creative thinking and experimentation, methods to discover how mistakes can serve your art and creativity, ways to see the world from a different perspective, helping to open different creative paths and why she thinks art teachers can be dangerous to a creative mind. 
Rothschild reminds us that we can and should once again trust our creative instincts and gives the reader permission to play and to not be afraid of making a mistake in order to find our artists outlet.

He was reticent about pursuing the performing arts, but every time he watched an inspiring movie, his heart longed to be in it. That's when he met filmmaker Rob Diamond. Rob had just begun another screenplay and told Landon he had the right look for the lead. Landon went to work, attending acting class several hours a week, learning all he could in order to win the role.

John Peterson, LA Talk Radio Host of "Radio You Can't Make Up", joins Mother Love in studio to chat about politics, family values, accountability for your actions and what we can do as a community to make positive changes now and for the future.
About John
I chose to name the show "Radio That You Can't Make Up" because I want to focus on things in life that you cannot make up. Whether it is a current event, a humorous anecdote, or miraculous story; I simply want to inspire thought. Not to think as I do, but to think for yourself.
What if you were told; "You only had one month to live." What would you do?
On July 1st, 2014, I began reading a book entitled 'One Month to Live.' The concept being you have just received news you have one month to live. How would that be received? Who would you go see? What would you tell them? To put it mildly, this book made me think. And that is my goal for this show: to encourage thought! I don't claim to have all the answers, but I do know a lot of the questions. One of my favorite quotes is from Henry Ford: "Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is why so few engage in it.

Mother Love shares her passion for November Diabetes Awareness Month , shares info on the state of Diabetes in America, the serious complications that arise from ill management, tips on how to better manage with support, resources medications and holistic methods and much more so we can "Get Better Together"
About Diabetes
More than 29 million Americans have diabetes, and about 86 million more are on the verge of the disease. People with diabetes are nearly two times more likely than people without diabetes to die from heart disease, and are also at greater risk for kidney, eye and nerve diseases, among other painful and costly complications. This year, in observance of National Diabetes Month, including World Diabetes Day on Nov. 14, The National Institutes of Health asks people to take to heart the lessons learned from our research. Type 2 diabetes can be delayed or prevented, and both types 1 and 2 diabetes can be managed to prevent complications. In type 1 diabetes, the body does not make insulin. In type 2 diabetes — the most common type, which has increased along with the obesity epidemic — the body does not make or use insulin well. A third type, gestational diabetes, occurs in some women during pregnancy. Though it usually goes away after the birth, these women and their children have a greater chance of getting type 2 diabetes later in life. As the number of people living with type 2 diabetes grows — and the disease has begun to affect young people — identifying safe and effective treatments is key to improving the health of people with diabetes and its complications and those at high risk for the disease.As part of NIH, the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) is committed to this goal. NIDDK-funded research has shown that losing a modest amount of weight — about 15 pounds — through diet and exercise can actually cut your risk of getting type 2 diabetes by as much as 58 percent in people at high risk

POPRAH, Television personality, actress, recording artist, writer and producer joins Mother Love in studio to share her vibrant passion to be a difference in the industry.
"Poprah", a name created to define a young woman who encompasses the vision, integrity, and passion of media icon, "Oprah Winfrey" and the creativity, drive and fortitude of Sean "Puffy" Combs. She created this name, to reflect her focus on building a multimedia conglomerate, which integrates the best of her many skills sets, talents and creative endeavors, as well as those of her mentors.
As an experienced television personality, actress, recording artist, writer and producer, she has had many successes that have spanned the entertainment industry both locally, and internationally. As one of faces on Vh1's Reality Show, "I Want To Work For Diddy", Poprah is well on her way to rivaling some of the best in business. She acts, hosts, sings, raps, writes, produces, and has her own clothing line for plus-size women, called "Fatabulous". "Yes, some of us are fat, but that doesn't mean we can't be fabulous. I'm living proof", she says. "That's why the line is called "Fatabulous". 
She admitted that she intentionally allowed herself to gain excessive weight after being disillusioned by the sexism of the entertainment industry. "I really wanted to be taken seriously and respected for my talent alone, like Oprah, Queen Latifah, and other women who I respected in the industry. It seems as long as I could fit into a size 5 to 7 jeans, the men of the industry always had some ulterior motive, never just business, and no matter what I wore or where I'd meet them, or how much I pleaded with them to just stick to business, they wouldn't listen. So I was forced to walk away, and sacrifice whatever opportunity they may have offered, because I refused to sleep my way to the top. "This journey has been long and arduous", she says but, I'm closer to dream than ever".
Poprah, is now the CEO of her own TV, Music and Film Production Company, Hollywood South Productions, LLC. "Hollywood South," is a respected and growing multimedia conglomerate, and the fruit of years of hard labor. First there was Puffy and there was Oprah. Now l.

About Aleisha
I was born in Arlington, Massachusetts but don't know anything about it because I went straight to LA as a baby. I grew up in a family with five brothers and one sister. At age 7 I began writing poetry and short stories. In junior high school, I worked for the school paper and added acting and directing to the mix. 
My love of writing goes hand-in-hand with my love of people, languages and cultures. In high school, I studied German and Spanish. At fifteen I got a scholarship for a summer exchange program and went to Germany then went again for a full year. I've traveled many countries in Europe and India.
At 19, I fell in love and married someone I met at church then had a preemie baby.
I joined a theater and wrote several one-act plays. It was at a film festival though that I realized I'd found my calling. I turned one of the novels I started into a screenplay.
I filmed three shorts, derived from my plays and acted in an award winning short. I also became crew for several productions from the filmmakers around me. Personally, I started going through some marriage problems and ended up divorcing my husband and moving to LA.
I've been assisting in other films and TV/web as cast and crew and also shot two PSAs for Help for Orphans, Int.
I am exceedingly happy as I got married in 2009 to an amazing and wonderful man, Byron Gore. You can check out his music We married on June 7, 2009 in a lovely ceremony at our home surrounded by many friends and family, even from the UK! It was wonderful.
Altogether I've written and directed over 50 shorts since I produced and acted in an internet sketch comedy show called Saturday Night YouTube! We've shot and aired 47 episodes.
I'm currently working on and wrote a romantic comedy about a woman coming back into the dating scene after divorce, called Chocolate is Not Better than Sex, which I am now producing and will direct in December. See the teaser


Jacqueline Pham, a self taught Chef with a diverse history, joins Mother Love in studio to share her true passion for all things cooking. The author of two cookbooks that showcase her culinary skills in French, Vietnamese, Indian and American dish shares her tips and tricks and brings turkey crepes with butternut squash and a smooth chestnut sauce! YUM!
About Chef Jacqueline
My name is Jacqueline (Jackie) Pham, and I started as a way to interact with other foodies. I am not a professional cook, I've never attended any cooking classes, but I just love to cook for my family and friends.
For me, cooking is an expression of love. I love to cook and I cook for the ones I love. Great food is nourishment for the body and soul. Whether it's a savory entree, a refreshing drink or a decadent dessert, we all have those favorite dishes that take us back in time.
I was born in the City of Light, Paris, France. My parents emigrated from Saigon, Vietnam in the mid 70s. From early on I was exposed to both cultures and cuisines. I love delicate French pastries and crave all the traditional Asian seafood dishes. In my mid-twenties, I moved to the sunny San Francisco Bay Area to be with my husband. Like me, he is the child of immigrants, though his parents are from India and he was born in the US.
We have a big family here, so there are always plenty of mouths to feed. We have a 14-month-old daughter. My husband has four little sisters, ranging in age from 9 to 17. My husband and 3 of his sisters are vegetarians. My father-in-law is a vegetarian but he only likes spicy Indian food and is allergic to mushrooms. My husband's 12-year-old sister is deathly allergic to eggs and all nuts (except peanuts, go figure!). And the rest of us are meat lovers. 

Mother Love, Mr. Kennedy & Sandy Stotzer, Comic/LA Talk Radio Show Host of A Comic's Life, hare their crazy comments on current events, Celeb divorces, cancelling "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" and other crazy talk.
About Sandy
Born in Chicago in 1952 to an unwed mother, Sandy Stotzer was immediately put up for adoption. Five months later, he was adopted by a wonderful couple (Sam and Midge Stotzer) and began to show signs of being funny even as a child. Although raised as a classical musician playing the trumpet from the age of five, Sandy was always a "closet comic."
Sandy's family eventually moved from Chicago to Northern California where he began to showcase his comedic talents while attending Saratoga High School helping to create Gross Gems Productions, an amateur film company specializing in comedy film shorts. The films were an instant hit, taking five awards out of their six films entered at the annual Eastman Kodak International Film Festival.
Gross Gems film showings became so popular, they later added "live sketch comedy" between films, creating a unique and well rounded ninety minute show, selling out every performance. Forty years later their films still run today on television.
Although accepted at The Julliard School of Music in New York City, Sandy chose California Institute of the Arts in Los Angeles for his college experience. It was here that Sandy fell in love with radio, television and the entertainment world in general.
After college, Sandy moved back to Northern California where he was given his own weekly television talk show during the early days of cable. Years later he moved back to Los Angeles where he performed regularly at "The Comedy Store" and "The Improv" in a comedy improvisational group and eventually worked his way into stand-up comedy.
The rest is history. For more years then he'd like to admit, Sandy has shared his hilarious style of insanity with millions of people coast to coast performing in clubs, colleges, numerous television commercials, national stand-up spots on networks such as BET (Black Entertainment Television) and finally to his ABC Pilot.
Today Sandy has been married to his beautiful, very successful and tolerant wife Beatrice, for the past thirty eight years. Without her love and support Sandy is convinced his life wouldn't have a fraction of the richness it has today.

Regina Radomski, Author of "From Half to Whole", A journey to overcome the battle scars of adoption and living to tell about it, calls in from NJ to share her hard fought journey to adopting older children from Poland.
The number of older-child adoptions is on the rise. In fact, of the nearly 8,700 international adoptions that took place last year, more than half were between the ages of 1 and 4, and nearly a quarter were between the ages of 5 and 12. This new image of adoption—due in large part to the 2008 ratification of the Hague Adoption Convention—presents new challenges for families looking to expand or start a family.
From Half to Whole is a raw and honest look at the trials and tribulations of one family's struggle to adopt and raise two young boys from Poland who came to America not only with a few stuffed toys in their backpacks but also the trauma of their past.
Sharing her personal diary entries, Regina Radomski reveals her compelling yet tumultuous journey to acclimate her adopted children to their new environment and the solace she found in family, friends, and valuable resources she discovered along the way.

Pina Di Cola, world renowned celebrity photographer joins Mother Love to share her theory on photo-image. Her new book, "Your Are Photogenic, Discover Your True Self with Photo-Image in the Age of the Selfie" rips the lid off of what is your True image not just what we see in the mirror as that image is distorted.
About Pina
Pina Di Cola's career as an internationally-recognized photographer in the entertainment industry has spanned 30 years; she has an archive of over 50,000 photos. Her professional career began while working on the set of Amarcord. Di Cola developed a friendship with maestro Fellini, became a recognized photographer in the Italian film industry, working on over 35 Italian films and closely with directors Pasquale Festa Campanile, Vincent Minnelli, Brian De Palma, Franco Zeffirelli, Gianfranco De Bosio, Martin Ritts, Massimo Troisi, George Kennedy, Maximilian Schell among others. She also operated a studio in Rome where she specialized in celebrity photography and was a highly-sought-after European photographer. Her work was also featured in major European magazines such as Oggi, CHI, Gente, Diva, Hola, Hello, Paris Match and many more. Di Cola then moved to Los Angeles, California, thus broadening her access to celebrity clientele. Her intellectual curiosity and the nature of her work prompted her to explore the range of human facial expressions and just how individuals perceive themselves. Throughout her career as a photographer, Di Cola established relationships with important personalities through a unique warmth and sensitivity that elicited clients' personal and genuine beauty. Her portraits reflect the care, consideration, and personalization that have ensured her success as a photographer. On the relationship between photographer and client, Pina believes that "the way someone presents him or herself to the camera, and the photographer's response to that presence, is what it's all about." Her approach to shooting portraits is to present her clients as they really are, as human beings with no gimmicks or tricks—only capturing what makes them special: their true selves. The concept of Photo-Image is true to this approach of capturing the individual's inner essence in a photograph. Studying the psychology and neurology of self-image, she discovered that our human minds cannot process our own image because, physically, we must rely on the inaccuracy of the mirror's reflection or the interpretation of others. This resulted in the concept of Photo-Image... a tool through which to gain a visual image of who we are. Di Cola has independently studied the range of human emotions and facial expressions, the human brain and subconscious mind, and such concepts as self-esteem and self-concepts. Through attending numerous seminars and lectures, and conducting many herself, she has explored the realms of beauty and perception. Through a variety of sources, from philosophical and psychological theories to neurological interpretations, Ms. Di Cola has expanded upon her concept of Photo-Image via a broad-range of mediums and topics to address and reflect the unifying theme of seeing yourself to know yourself

Jurline K. Redeaux, MSW, Executive Director of New Impression joins Mother Love in studio to share her love of her community and people and her passion to help heal them.
About Jurline 
My mother suffered from Diabetes and raising awareness in the African American is my life long passion. Not only for Diabetes but for all the chronic illnesses that plagued our community to include, depression, strokes, mental health issues, and alcohol and addiction. My life has been impacted by all of these, however due to my insight and awareness has managed to prevent all placing my faith in God at the head. I will attach an article written and published in Cal State Dominguez Hills Newsletter. My life is truly a testimony and I have proud to give back to my Community. I will also direct you to my web page as well. 
We are doing the tremendous work at the Alcoholism Center for Women. They are celebrating their 40 Year Anniversary on 10/18/14 from 2 - 5 PM at 1147 South Alvarado Street Los Angeles, CA 90006
We have secured Comedian Annie McKnight to host our event. She is an amazing woman. God has blessed me with many talents. 
How my life is connected to this event, is a very personal one. Simply stated I grew up with Alcoholism. My brother Leroy Johnson, my favorite Aunt Martha, they were the fun and the life of the party. Later in life, I learned the toil that the alcohol had taken on the quality of their life. My brother was in and out of prison most of his life. Alcohol related. My Auntie, never kept a healthy relationship with anyone, abused her grandchildren and died alone. All related to alcohol. The mental health challenges associated with being an alcoholic is heart breaking to say the least. It impacts the entire family. I truly believe worrying about them is the main reason my mother's health suffered such a decline, leading to her becoming a diabetic among other chronic diseases.
In 2002, my brother lost his battle with Alcoholism as years of drinking cheap liquor, destroyed his stomach. His death impacted me in a profound way as he and I was extremely close.
In spite of their weakness, they both had the biggest heart and love for our family. They just didn't know how to love themselves. So I dedicate my life to giving back. I only wish that my Aunt and Brother had found an agency like the Alcoholism Center for Women, a residential program that would have given them the opportunity to transform their lives. 
By serving on the board, along with my daughter who is also a Social Worker, it is my way to honor their memories, and to pay it forward. It is also a way to honor my Mother who loved them both, her son and her auntie, as she too lost her battle with Diabetes. 
Wherever I go, and whenever I speak to the African American Community or any Community for that matter, I take a piece of them with me. It's my way of saying, your passing and your life was not in vain.

Carvin Haggins, Grammy Award winning Songwriter/Producer calls in from Philadelphia, PA to share his passion for the decline in music lyrics and the need for his "Rage Against the Ratchet" movement.
Organized as a "Movement" in May 2014,by Grammy Award-winning producer, songwriter and arranger, Carvin Haggins, Rage Against the Ratchet was formed to build awareness about the current violent and sexually explicit songs that can be heard on urban radio stations. The word "Ratchet" (derived from "wretched") by definition was used in urban communities as an adjective describing a person that displays inappropriate behavior. The word has evolved and is now used in Pop Culture (still associated with a negative connotation); hence, the term to name the movement Rage Against the RatcheAs a father and mentor, Haggins became appalled by the current music played on air and lack of diversity of songs that can be heard on urban radio stations. As he states, "Now, as a father, I can no longer allow my children to listen to songs currently playing on the radio. While taking my children to school in the morning, I have to dodge from station to station trying to avoid sexually explicit, raunchy conversation by the show host. Picking my children up from school at 3pm, when the latest record is's a disaster waiting to happen. Radio used to be the place we turn to for information on life, love, health and prosperity. Now it's a place of death and destruction. History shows us when the music was positive, our community was better."
Previous years, radio stations use to have strict regulations for the music that contained explicit words, such as the "b-word" or anything deemed derogatory. Today, lyrical content is so explicit, even the "clean" version has become problematic. It appears, radio stations have compromised to please the artist and an industry that continues to push the already hypocrisy of what is acceptable to say and suggest in music. Thus, the reason and purpose for Haggins forming this movement.

Dorothy Hampton grew up as the youngest and unexpected child in a large (White) southern family in the time of Jim Crow and the Great Depression of the 1930's.

Cynthia Troussaint & John Garrett join Mother Love in studio to invite women who live in chronic pain their families and care givers to the 7th Annual Women In Pain Conference and LIVE webcast: Accepting Pain: Our New Normal. This event is September 12, 2014 @ The California Endowment Center for Healthy Communities.
About Cynthia 
I lead a life of contradiction. I've experienced horrific pain, a non-caring medical system, and total loss of the career I felt I was born for. Yet I feel completely blessed. Twenty-seven years ago, I was a 21-year-old ballerina with a bright future. Then a minor ballet injury in my right leg triggered the chronic pain disease, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, too often called "The Suicide Disease." 
For the first thirteen years of illness, my doctors told me my physical problems were all in my head. That abuse left me bedridden for a decade and unable to speak for five years while the CRPS spread throughout my body and ravaged my vocal cords. After my disease was diagnosed in 1995 (later I developed fibromyalgia as an over-lapping condition), I enjoyed significant improvement and moved into a wheelchair. 
But my anger with my predominantly male physicians gave me the gut feeling I'd been dismissed because I was a woman. I wasn't alone. Studies show women are more prone to chronic pain diseases and feel pain more intensely than men, all the while receiving far less care. We get sedatives and psychiatric referrals, while men tend to receive serious diagnosis, painkillers and aggressive treatment. Simply put, women hurt more and are helped less. 
So I founded the nonprofit, For Grace, to ensure ethical and equal treatment of all women in pain. Our goal is to empower women to become better advocates for their pain care and to declare war on gender bias and the ever-convenient "it's all in your head." Cynthia Toussaint is the founder and spokesperson of For Grace. Toussaint championed and gave key testimony at two California Senate hearings – one was dedicated to CRPS awareness, the second explored the chronic under-treatment of and gender bias toward women in pain. She will spearhead a third hearing in Spring 2010 that will explore the barriers to care that women in pain face. Toussaint is the author of the memoir, Battle for Grace .
My shining star was my partner John who stayed by me, whispering support all along the way. His love lifted me through the worst of times, his steady strength soothed my wounds.
About John
Cynthia's care giver and Life Partner have been together for 34 years. He is her staunchest supporter, confidant friend and gave his voice to their memoir Battle For Grace. Even though he was reluctant at first, he knew how his sharing love story could give hope and healing to those who love and care for women in pain. Leaving was NEVER an option for him and because they are not "technically" wed, they are married, to each other in deep devotion ,love and commitment to being of service to Women In Pain.

J-RO of Tha Alkaholiks aka Tha Liks joins Mother Love in studio to drop some of his vast knowledge as a Hip Hop Ambassador. Celebrating 21 years in the industry doing everything from writing (since he was13) to performing,living in Sweden for 10 years to teaching Hip Hop Culture @ University there and coming back to his hometown LA to share that same knowledge with the next gen of business men & women.
He and his business partners are hosting the 1st Annual Hip Hop 818 Antics Music Festival. This family friendly 12 hour extravaganza of music, arts, food,live performances on 2 stages is Saturday 8/30/14 from 2PM - 2AM @9943 Canoga Blvd, Chatsworth, CA. Advance tickets are $20.00, $30.00 @ the door. For ticket info: or purchase from the young street team members .
About J-Ro
J-Ro started rapping at the age of 13 as a young multi-talented athlete and overall connoisseur of sports and verbal jousting was no exception. But even before blessing the microphone, like many B-Boys before his time, he started as a DJ and overall lover of Hip-Hop, but the mic was irresistible to MC. 'I learned how to rap from my God-brother, Suave E.D. Brock (RIP) and then met E-Swift and Tash when I was 18 – we became the E.S.P. (Everyday Street Poets) Crew", says J-Ro – now calling Sweden his home. He was competitive at a young age and his thirst for the mic would get him in special places with special personalities – like DJ Pooh, Scotty Dee, Cold Crush Chris and on tour with Hip-Hop legend, King Tee. 'I would open for King Tee and after I introduced Tash and E-Swift to him, he renamed us Tha Alkaholiks', says J-Ro. Tha Alkaholiks would go on to record a breakout single with King Tee entitled, "I Got It Bad Y'all". The success of the single in tandem with the undeniable personality, of J-Ro, Tash and E-Swift as Tha Alkaholiks, prompted their immediate signing to Loud Records. What would follow is one of the most underappreciated, overwhelming, credible and amazing Hip-Hop careers to ever exist – Tha Alkaholiks earned universal respect as Hip-Hop ambassadors and aficionados around the globe and were never boxed in as 'regional' artists. One cannot measure the value of a free man who has created and pursued his path like J-Ro has. More than a member of one of Hip-Hop's most celebrated groups, more than a survivor of an area that has with drugs, gangs and social ills swallowed men and women of color alive and finally more than a B-Boy – J-Ro stands as an ambassador and representative of Hip-Hop's best elements and of human relations around the world.

Lynn Sarkany CO Executive Director of VETBOSS and Heraclio Kiki Aguilar III AKA Junior join Mother Love in studio for a candid conversation on PTSD and how he is taking ownership of his mental wellness. He is working to assist other Veterans with their PTSD by engaging them in instructions on creating video games. His program "The T.O.I. Soldier Project " is putting a crowd funding campaign to generate funding for the eventual healing of our brave Veterans 
About Junior
Heraclio Kiki Aguilar III (He also goes by "Junior") was raised in the small farming town of Porterville, CA at the center of the San Joaquin Valley. Like me, Junior was a troublemaker in High School because he was bored, but he did graduate from the Porterville Panthers in 2000. At that point, he left town and joined the Army. He was stationed in South Korea on September 11, 2001. After that, being on High Alert was the new normal, and every day that he spent in the military until he got out in 2007 was spent in that state. Jr. put his life on the line for our country and would do it all again, because during his military career he left the Army, joined the National Guard and became a Bradley Tank Driver.
Junior attended college after he got out of the military, and received an Associates in Business Administration, but the market crashed as he started to look for work. In 2011, Junior decided that it was time to be adventurous again, and that it was time to work on his own well being, and so he packed up and moved to LA. He eventually received a Bachelors in Video Game animation, and with those skills he created the T.O.I. Soldier Project.

It enabled him to climb back from the depths of hell and seek a different path—a path of light and love. Over thirty-five years ago Roy "cracked the code" of his own addictive personality. As a result, he lost 120 pounds and overcome a myriad of addictions, as well as depression, panic attacks, and phobias. Based on his personal experience of total freedom, Roy developed The Nelson Method—a plan of spiritual mentor ship that is designed to help people overcome their own personal hell, even when all other approaches have failed.
Roy is known as "the last resort" for those who cannot stop their self-destructive habits. His depth of spirituality and love is so extraordinary that clients commonly report that they experience complete freedom almost immediately. Because Roy understands what it's like to live with emotional pain and addictions, he has tremendous insight and empathy for those in turmoil.
This extraordinary journey has made him one of the world's leading experts on breaking free from the kind of "soul-sickness" that often manifests as a myriad of addictions and obsessions. Through his loving mentor ship, Roy personally guides clients through The Nelson Method, providing them the opportunity for deep spiritual transformation, and a life of freedom.
In Love Notes from Hell, Roy shares his refreshingly honest and unique perspective about the addictive personality and what actually causes a person to self-destruct with addictions. Using examples from his own experience as well as those of his private clients Roy helps you understand why so many treatment options are failing and how spiritual truths such as those contained in the Nelson Method™ can produce extra ordinary transformation and freedom from your own personal hell.

Ernestine Phillips, Wayne Stribling, Jr, & Gerald Rivers, Actors/ Resident Members of Will Geer's Theatricum Botanicum drop by the studio to invite you all to the 450th Birthday Celebration of an All-Shakespeare Season for 2014. 
Earnestine and Wayne appear in this summer's production of "All's Well that Ends Well" as the Countess of Rousillon and the King of France, respectively. and Gerald plays the Earl of Kent in "Lear." Theatricum is a repertory company, so all the productions are up and running at once, and it's possible to see all the shows in a single weekend. 
About Will Geer's Theatricum Botanicum
The beginnings stretch back to the early 1950s when Will Geer, one of the many actors victimized by the McCarthy Era Blacklisting, opened up a theater for blacklisted actors and folk singers on his property in Topanga. 
The gardens were a place of refuge for Geer. Here he could indulge his passions for horticulture and acting. With wife Herta Ware and their children, Geer, unable to find work in Hollywood, made money selling vegetables and flowers. On the dirt stage next to Topanga Creek surrounded by ancient oaks and sycamores, the family presented Shakespeare and played music with good friends such as Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger and John Randolph. The audience sat on hay bales and the performances were free. This magical combination of nature and art formed a nurturing, creative oasis for many actors and artists and an invigorating natural setting for audiences. Then, in 1962, Otto Preminger cast Geer in the film Advise and Consent. His acting career was rekindled and eventually he was cast as the feisty but loveable Grandpa on the long-running television series The Waltons (1971-78) – the role for which he is best remembered. In 1973, Geer re-gathered his family, who were now working actors at theaters across the country, and together they formed a nonprofit corporation. The theater, which was then a performance space on the property where the Shakespeare Garden now exists, housed workshop performances of Shakespeare; folk plays; memorials for actors such as Robert Ryan; concerts by Pete Seeger, Arlo Guthrie, Della Reese and Burl Ives among others; and "hootenannies" given by and for the artists who were by now considered part of the family. Upon the death of Mr. Geer in 1978, the family and a small band of players decided to work towards becoming a family.

Gilbert Glenn Brown & Matthew Hancock 2 of the stars in the play "The Brothers Size" join Mother Love in studio to invite you to see this transformation piece by award winning Director Shirley Jo Finney. Set on the back-roads of the Louisiana bayou, The Brothers Size follows the path of the recently paroled Oshoosi Size (Matthew Hancock) as he seeks to jumpstart his life. Working in an auto repair shop for his brother Ogun (Gilbert Glenn Brown), however, was not what he had in mind. When his old friend Elegba (Theodore Perkins) rolls up, offering a different direction, Oshoosi quickly finds himself torn between his brother, his loyalties and his dreams. It's an exuberantly theatrical drama that weaves together the pulsing rhythms of the bayou with African Yoruba mythology to create a stylized story of love and heartache. While part two of McCraney's trilogy stands alone – you don't need any knowledge of the first (In the Red and Brown Water) or third (Marcus; or the Secret of Sweet) to enjoy The Brothers Size – the three plays exist in the same world. Set in the fictional Louisiana bayou town of San Pere, in what McCraney calls "the distant present," they share themes, characters and similar theatrical conventions. Dreams seep into waking life.

WORLD'S 1st FROZEN POPCORN is Air-Popped, made with Real Handmade Caramel, No Preservatives or sprays, NON-GMO and we offer Vegan and Gluten-free flavors. 
About Josh 
The youngest of 3 sons, Josh made his living as a Key Grip in Hollywood for many years. Coming from a Show Biz family, Father and his late Great, Great Uncle, Lon Chaney (Man of 1000 Faces). Then he decided to pop popcorn. 
It all started back in 1896, before popcorn was ever sold as a common snack. The Mad Popper's great grandmother had a caramel recipe that very few got to try. However, this amazing caramel recipe got passed down generation to generation. 
In August of 2010, The Mad Popper's mom had renal failure and was rushed to the hospital. After being there for weeks, Josh was forced to do something he had dreaded for a long time. He asked for the 100-year-old recipe.Meanwhile, Josh's mom started her road to recovery, and got a chance to see her youngest son master their family's 100-year-old secret caramel recipe that is actually a vegan caramel. Josh and his partner Sulmaz met on skid row in down town Los Angeles a few months later. He wanted to share his popcorn with people on skid row and she was purchasing over 200 sandwiches to feed everyone. This has been the most amazing meeting of two people in one of the toughest areas in LA. They have since developed 'California Mad Poppers' together, creating an experience for those popcorn lovers unlike any other in the market placetoday and together they continue to give back and never forget why they came together in the first place! 
Josh and the beautiful Sulmaz, continue to "Pay it Forward" by raising funds from the sale of their unique popcorn for charity and various causes. Check them out and see how you can have this popcorn (FYI...get enough for everybody!) and help others.

Jimmer Bolden, ( J.B.) Yorke Fryer  (Samuel) and Jacquelin Schofield (Sara) join Mother Love in studio to share the amazing life of J.B. Murray with the new musical "Visionary Man". Based on the true story of this illiterate farmer living in a shack in Glascock County, GA without water or electricity when, at age 70, he had the first of what he called his "visions from the Holy Spirit." Over a period of 10 years, Murray's vision-inspired paintings and non-semantic script, initially on scraps of writing paper, envelopes, adding machine tape, poster board, wood paneling, old stove tops and televisions picture tubes, and eventually on archival art paper, would capture the imagination of his friends and neighbors — and, ultimately, of an international community of museums, galleries and collectors.
