Rickey Smiley hosted a screening of season 2 of his reality show “Rickey Smiley For Real” and many of his celeb friends came out to show support. Peep the pics, plus shots of Niecy Nash, Andra Day, Kevin McCall and more having fun at a music showcase inside…
Comedian/radio personality Rickey Smiley is gearing up for the season 2 premiere of his unscripted TV One series “Rickey Smiley For Real.” Last night, he hosted a screening and afterparty where several of his celeb friends came out to show their support.
His Radio One/Dish Nation family, including Da Brat, Porsha Williams and Gary With Da Tea (and his loud suit) made sure to come out to celebrate their friend/co-worker’s big feat.
The whole Smiley Family was in the building to catch the show's season 2 premiere, in which they star.
It was all fun and games as Rickey had some fun cutting up on the red carpet with Porsha.
Curves ahead! The Naked Lingerie owner showed off her curvaceous bod in a black-and-white printed bodycon mini.
Fresh from her “Wendy Williams” appearance, “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star Joseline Hernandez looked a tad bit over it on the carpet. Maybe her husband Stevie J (yes, they're still together) pissed her off before she made it to the event. You know they stay in some drama.
We see Brat is having fun with her threads. There's a lot going on with this look.
R&B songstress Kelly Price was all smiles as she posed it up on the carpet. Are we feelin' her blue streaked hair?
Well come on through then Lisa Wu! The “Hollywood Divas” star looked rather jazzy in all black everything.
Well here's a surprise. Reality star Shay "Buckeey" Johnson stepped out and made an appearance.
“R&B Divas” creator/Brownstone songstress Nicci Gilbert, radio personality Ed Lover and SWV singer Lelee were in the mix to celebrate the 2nd season of Rickey's show.
Reality star/choreographer Andrea Kelly, ex-wife of R. Kelly, stays on the ATL scene and last night was no different.
Rickey and his cast mates did a Q&A panel, hosted by Porsha.
Y'all know Rickey is also about showing love to his fraternity, throwing up the hooks during the shindig. He's a proud member of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity.
And it appears Gary suffered a minor spill during the festivities. One too many perhaps?
You can catch the first season 2 episode of “Rickey Smiley For Real" when it premieres Tuesday, May 10 at 8/7c on TV One.
At another event....
Last week, “Soul Man” actress Nicey Nash was tapped to host the pre-release music showcase of up-and-coming artist MAJOR, hosted by producer Harmony Samuels, BOE, SAMURAI and BMI.
Before getting to her hosting duties, the fabulous actress posed it up on the carpet with “Hollywood Divas” stars Elise Neal, and Shamicka Lawrence along with radio personality/dancer Big Lez.
This is what 50 & fabulous slayage looks like! Werk!
In movie news, Elise has quite a few projects coming down the pipeline, including Ladies Book Club, What Are The Chances and 36 Hour Layover.
Positioned in the middle, new artist MAJOR was all smiles posing it up alongside celebrity publicist/new mom Kita Williams and publicist Mo, soulful songstress Andra Day, and Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman.
Nothings official until you snap selfie. Say cheese!
Troubled R&B singer Kevin McCall, who was recently involved in a social media tiff with his baby mama Eva Marcille's cousin, seems to be in good spirits.
Wardrobe stylist/”Mary Mary” star GooGoo Atkins came out to hear some of MAJOR's new tunes.
Niecy took center stage to host the event.
And former "The Game" star Wendy Raquel Williams, looking gorge, was also in the mix. Fun times!
