TV | Running Russell Simmons Comes to Oxygen Nov 2


Behind every good man is a great woman, but behind every American mogul stands several great women.

The upcoming docu-series "Running Russell Simmons" offers an exclusive peek at the life of Russell Simmons -- entrepreneur, entertainment and fashion icon, philanthropist, and yogi --and the powerful team that helps to keep the machine running. Simmons' assistants not only know the ins and outs of his business deals, but also have a hand in managing his family life and party planning: a 24/7 commitment.

Simone and Christina serve as Simmons' closest confidantes, fierce gatekeepers, philanthropic czars, business liaisons, and more. The series will also feature Adair, Trish, and Piper, who keep operations running seamlessly. Ali and Sagen are Simone and Christina's new interns who struggle to maintain the hectic pace that running Russell Simmons demands.

Simmons' associates are entrenched in every aspect of his life -- both personal and at his Fashion Avenue office in New York City. Their glam jobs bring them face-to-face with everyone from former Presidents and international royalty to Hollywood's elite. And, with many new upcoming projects to juggle in the worlds of fashion, film and television, they have their work cut out for them.

"Running Russell Simmons" was developed and executive-produced by Simmons Lathan Media Group and Picture This Television. Simmons, Stan Lathan, Bryan Scott, Lisa M. Tucker, Danny Salles and Amy Kohn serve as executive producers, and Lesley Goldman is co-executive producer for Picture This Television. "Running Russell Simmons" premiers November 2nd at 10/9c.

Toni Rackard Prepares to Release "Unconditional Love" CD

Passionate Praise is one way to describe the inspiring, contemporary gospel grooves of Tampa, Florida’s rising gospel star, Toni Rackard. For the last dozen years, she’s quietly built a following on the Florida music scene and even toured Europe with the renowned Harlem Gospel Choir. As her first national radio single “You Pulled Me Through” (a sizzling duet with Marvin Winans Jr.) continues to gain momentum at gospel radio stations around the country, buzz is also building for the release of Rackard’s forthcoming debut CD "Unconditional Love" on October 26, 2010.

The project is the first joint venture between Rackard’s Beyond The Veil (BTV) recording label and the Emtro Gospel/Taesis Music Group. “We are planning to release other artists in the future,” says Rackard’s husband, Derrick, BTV’s CEO. Emtro Gospel has enjoyed Top 10 radio hits such as Alvin Darling’s “All Night,” “Troy Sneed’s “Work It Out,” and Youth for Christ’s “Struggle is Over” that spent 12 weeks at #1 in 2007.

The CD features a smooth jazz reading of Bill Withers’ “Lovely Day” and closes with the aggressive club track, “The Kingdom Slide.” In between, there are songs of praise such as Rackard’s cover of Hillsong’s “Sing of Your Great Love” and the urban-flavored anthem “Unconditional love.” “You don’t have to be a in a box because you’re saved,” Rackard says of the fresh urban sound of the song. “We are to have fun and rejoice but also spread the importance of intimacy with God.” Rackard is the praise and worship leader at Jesus People Family Worship Center in Tampa, FL.

Are You In Love with a Bully?

Thursday, October 21, 2010

October is widely known as Breast Cancer Awareness month, but it is also Domestic Violence Month. While crusing on, I came across Kennisha Hill's post regarding this issue.

You’ve likely heard the reports. Bullying is on the rise in America, and I recently ran across quite a few disturbing stories about the tragic effects of bullying amongst teens.

Right now, there seems to be a terrible outbreak of teens who commit suicide because they are bullied by their peers at school. It is one of the saddest trends we are facing in America today. And, we absolutely have to do something about protecting our teens from this very frightening thing that’s happening in our own backyards.

But, what about in relationships? Can we be bullied there too? Sure can.

Bullying is a real form of abuse and it doesn’t necessarily have to be physical, either. It can take on many different forms. Today, I’d like to enlighten you with facts on bullying in relationships, how you can avoid it, and what to do if you’re faced with any form of it.

According to The Office on Women’s Health in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, verbal and emotional abuse is defined as:

■blaming you for everything
■playing mind games or manipulating you
■ordering you around
■keeping you from spending time with friends and family
■threatening to hurt you
