ATLANTA — The annual Steve Harvey “Ford Neighborhood Awards” has become such high-profile and powerful programming that studios and television stations send their biggest or newest stars out to maximize their marketing.
That is precisely why Michael Ealy and Sanna Lathan, the stars of the upcoming romantic thriller The Perfect Guy, were posted up strong on the blue carpet. Which is also why Omar Gooding and Angell Conwell were on the set cloaked in their glamorous wares in anticipation for season 3 of “Family Time” for Bounce TV, which is why the director Roger Bobb and Terri J. Vaughn were at the awards weekend to screen their TV One film sequel, Girlfriends Getaway 2.
They were joined by, of course, Steve Harvey and wife Marjorie, Kandi Burruss, Todd Tucker and Mama Joyce of “Real Housewives of Atlanta, Tamar Braxon, husband Vincent and mother Evelyn, David and Tamela Mann, Stephen A. Smith of ESPN’s “First Take,” attorneys Benjamin Crump (who represented Trayvon Martin) and celebrity Judge Glenda Hatchett, Tank, Nephew Tommy and Shirley Strawberry of the “Steve Harvey Morning Show,” esteemed tevlevision journalist Ed Gordon, Zane of the famous “Zane Sex Chronicles,” legendary rapper MC Lyte, Kenny “The Jet” Smith and many more.
