“The Haves and the Have Nots” and “Love Thy Neighbor.” I was included with over a hundred press and tastemakers, who packed the Tribeca Grand Screening Room on a wintry night to get a sneak peek of “Love Thy Neighbor” (LTN) and a full episode viewing of “The Haves and the Have Nots” (HHN).
I was able to get an exclusive interview with HHN star, Tyler Lepley as he walked off the red carpet, right into my camera. Mr. Lepley plays a "Have Not", Benny Young, the son of maid Hanna. Benny is a blue-collar brother and a dutiful man who makes his mother proud. Learn more about the humble actor and Tyler Perry's hottest show on the Oprah Winfrey Network by watching this video clip with highlights from the event and my exclusive interview.
HHN cast members in attendance included John Schneider, Renee Lawless, Gavin Houston, Peter Parros, Angela Robinson, Jaclyn Betham, Aaron O’Connell, Eva Tamargo and Tyler Lepley. [Not attending were Tika Sumpter who was in Mississippi shooting a film and Crystal Fox who was out of the country]. LTN cast on hand were Patrice Lovely, Palmer Williams Jr, Kendra C. Johnson, Andre Hall, Jonathan Chase and Darmirra Brunson. Tyler Perry Studios executives Ozzie Areu (president/executive producer), Will Areu (senior vice president/producer) and Mark Swinton (producer) were also in the building to celebrate the highly anticipated second season of these shows.
